lol, you just put Spinner and Emma as your favorite Emma ship. I trust you meant Sean?

Damn it, thanks for letting me know about that mistake. Yes I do mean Sean. Let me fix that.

Hi Minion! Hi BB!

Name: Well my name is Sara, but everyone calls me Skank!
Age: 12. No...19.
When you started watching Degrassi: Too long. But I think it was around 2002.
Favorite Characters: Sean, Old Manny, Old Ellie, Cool Paige, Cool Spinner, NonPussy!Jay, Rick.
Favorite Ships: Well Spinner/Darcy and Terri/Rick are my OTPs. Lately though, (for certain reasons,) I've been shipping Sean/Emma hardcore.
Favorite Spinner Ship: Spinner/Darcy, then Spinner/Paige and Spinner/Jane tied.
Favorite Emma Ship: Sean/Emma.
Why you hate Spemma: Well I hate them because they basically fucked over the entire show, and made absolutely no sense at all. They married each other, with exchanging less than 3 sentences in their entire lives. It also pisses me off because theyre endgame when Sean/Emma should have been, since they're the OTP of the show. They also have no chemistry AND ARENT EVEN A REAL SHIP.

When you started watching Degrassi: Season 2
Favorite Characters: Spinner, Darcy, Marco, Jane, Sean, Jay, Ellie, JT, & Alex.
Favorite Ships: Spane, Parcy, Sellie, Crash, Janny, Sparcy, Spaige, Semma, Darco,
Favorite Spinner Ship: Spinner and Jane ♥
Favorite Emma Ship: Emma and Sean
Why you hate Spemma: Because they were rushed together and so forced. You can't fall in love in 3 days with someone you don't know. They're not in love and not endgame. Putting these two together completely ruined the show and ruined my life. Degrassi was a huge part of my life for so long and putting these two together destroyed it. Because of them I'll never be able to watch the old episodes the same way ever again. I feel led on and cheated by the writers. Because of them almost the whole shows history is completely irrelevant and all those years of character development was wasted and destroyed in a matter of minutes.

Favorite Ships: Jay/Darcy, Craig/Manny, Spinner/Holly J, Spinner/Darcy, Sean/Ellie, Declan/Fiona
Favorite Spinner Ship: Spinner/Darcy
Favorite Emma Ship: Sean/Emma
Why you hate Spemma: Is there a reason not to? Rushed, random, made 0 sense. You don't fall in love in 3 days when you don't know the person! This movie made all character development and couples completely irrelevant to the whole series. They were just a ploy for shock value and its disgusting.

Thanks for the graphic! and is that fucker clapping in the background supposed to be a Shane stand in? It kind of looks like him a bit. I find it absolutely pathetic that they're too cheap to afford the real actors now a days. The Toby stand-in was hilariously pathetic. I'm not sure if this is true, but I heard (forget where) that the Toby stand-in was dancing with Liberty at the end. I was too busy vomiting in disgust to notice, but if that's true I don't even know what to say.
Tiffanytiffisamazing on July 19th, 2010 05:06 am (UTC)
HAHAHAHAHAHA I never noticed that bitch in the background! Thats fucking hilarious. I wouldn't be shocked if it was a stand in! As for the Toby thing, LMAO. I'm sure Jake wants nothing to do with Degrassi so they needed a stand in. Hes another character that got royally fucked, every year they just fucked him more and more and more yet I bet Toby's still a virgin.
Laura: Spane // Graduationrentxl0ve on July 19th, 2010 05:21 am (UTC)
I think that they probably did as Jake to come back, but he declined and I don't blame him after his appearance last season hosting that robot shit. It was obvious they couldn't think of anything for him to do and it's their fault for not developing him. They probably offered to pay Sarah extra money for the one line she had because Stohn got tired of people bugging the shit out of him about her on twitter. Oh and Toby is no doubt a virgin.
Tiffany: Spemma RAGEtiffisamazing on July 19th, 2010 05:42 am (UTC)
That robot shit in season 8 was just pathetic. I can't believe thats the only way we got to see him again. They could've done so much more with his character than the sidekick geek. Its sad.
Ikr? I bet Stohn just put her in there to shut us up. I mean like Libertaay said before, how does she show up to the wedding and not her own brothers graduation?
Laurarentxl0ve on July 19th, 2010 07:01 am (UTC)
I know! They could have at least had him get some action.
He definitely did. I don't understand that either, I thought that her appearance was her going to be at the graduation and then hanging out with Emma and Manny.
go jump back up your motherrandombasic on July 19th, 2010 05:35 am (UTC)
Poor Jake Goldsbie. I wonder if they even paid him after he got kicked out of the main credits. Maybe he just kept showing up to the set and no one had the heart to send him away, so they gave him throwaway bits every now and then.
Tiffanytiffisamazing on July 19th, 2010 05:45 am (UTC)
I bet thats exactly what happened since Stephen Stohn is a complete tool.
ibadboy3: Tyraibadboy3 on July 19th, 2010 12:34 pm (UTC)
LOL! By throwaway bits you mean hosting robot wars. They never even told us what college Toby was going to. He was pretty useless to me anyway... *shrugs*

I think it's hilarious how his eyes are closed. Generally when spontaneous kisses are sprung on people in movies/tv shows their eyes are open, like the Piley one which lasted about 1/8 of the amount of time this one did.
Tiffany: Jennifer Check nod/smiletiffisamazing on July 19th, 2010 05:58 am (UTC)
I thought I was the only one that noticed that! I've seriously watched that scene way to many times.

He was enjoying it, but I mean, its not like getting kissed by Fiona is a surprise. It just doesn't usually happen in public.

When you started watching Degrassi: From the beginning, although I didn't watch 2 and 3 regularly while they were airing.
Favorite Characters: Spinner (Until he did THIS), Manny, Jay, Holly J.
Favorite Ships: In order Spaige, Semma, Cranny, Jalli *ducks*, Dolly J.
Favorite Spinner Ship: Spaige. That's the only girl Spinner can be with dammit!
Favorite Emma Ship: Semma, see above.
Why you hate Spemma: I'm all for the marrying someone you've known forever and the whole friends falling in love shit but they were never friends you stupid writers! If anything their marriage must just encourage a bunch of couples who barely know each other to get married and all that "Meant to be" bullshit was making me sick.
OhioChicpoptarts_xx on July 19th, 2010 02:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, and JT and Sean are also my favorite characters. Sadly so many pointless new characters have been introduced they're so long gone.

Favorite Characters: Jay Hogart, Spinner Mason (ahem), Alex Nunez, Darcy Edwards, Craig Manning, Sean Cameron, s1-6 Manny Santos
Favorite Ships: Sparcy, Cranny, Sellie, Jalex
Favorite Spinner Ship: Sparcy
Favorite Emma Ship: Jemma
Why you hate Spemma: Because they're random and pointless. They've had like 2 conversations that I recall, Family Politics and Holiday Road, but I guess that's enough to start a relationship, no? The first thing I thought when I saw Jay in a tux in the sped-up promo is oh god, not a Janny wedding, then I saw Emma in a veil, then I was like Jemma wedding?... what the?... but then I'm like Daniel lives in NYC... Semma wedding? awesome, because I don't care about them anymore. Buuut, they smashed my dreams. They made me hate Holly J with this movie, and made me Team Jane... and I despise Jane

okay, i'm sorry, that was endless, lol

Why you hate Spemma: I shipped them as an AU couple. My mistake. I wouldn't of cared to see them DATE but to MARRY?! No. The way the writers did it ruined it.

Heh, I actually forgot him too until I looked up a list of Degrassi castmembers, which I did because I couldn't remember half of them offhand, let alone the ones I actually like.

No seriously I ship almost anything that isn't KC/Jenna (these two make me want to pry my eyes out with a spork) and Peter/Mia (just no)

Why you hate Spemma: I didn't hate them the first time around I just didn't care- like at all. The second time around I realize how truly stupid this set up was.

Favorite Spinner Ship: Paige/Spinner (OTP)
Favorite Emma Ship: I don't really have one.

Why you hate Spemma:


It's so ridiculous and forced. I'm sorry, where's the development? Where's the chemistry? Not seeing it. It's like they threw some names in to a hat and decided to make them endgame.

They went and created one of the most dumbass pairings I've ever seen on this show. I mean, fine, you want to tie up loose ends? Great, but Jane was leaving the show too. So why not put Spinner/Jane back together, instead of concocting this contrived storyline about Spinner and Emma's true feelings coming out after a night of alcohol and gambling? I don't buy it, and I never will.

Both of their histories are thrown completely out the window. Emma ALWAYS went back to Sean. Spinner had a lot of relationships, but he was with each girl for quite a long time. (with the exception of Manny) THOSE were meaningful relationships. This? It's like a one-night stand gone horribly wrong.

Name: Liz
Age: older than probably all of you

When you started watching Degrassi: grew up with the original series; 1st ep of TNG was “Hot for Teacher”

Favorite Characters: SPINNER, JT, pre-college Ellie, crazy Craig, Joey, Marco, Kelly, Wheelchair Jimmy

Favorite Ships: Spinner/Jane, Spinner/Darcy (before the My Room photos), Sean/Emma, JT/Liberty, Declan/Holly J, Dave/Alli (when it eventually happens), Peter/Darcy (before she was raped and went crazy), Spinner/Holly J (they would’ve been cute together), Kelly/Emma (just because he was hot and it gave him more screen time), Joey/Caitlin, Craig/Angie (not that kind of ship you sickos! He was just so cute with her in the beginning.)

Favorite Spinner Ship: Spinner/Jane – they were good for each other and I like to pretend that whole Declan thing never happened…

Favorite Emma Ship: Sean/Emma – he was the only one who ever put up with her crap and kept coming back for more

Why you hate Spemma: because I cried for the last half of that movie and they weren’t tears of joy; it goes against everything the past 9 seasons have built upon; it happened way too fast – I would’ve been more willing to accept Spemma if they did the Niagara wedding and then decided to DATE afterwards since they’ve only had 3 interactions with each other in the past 9 seasons; did Emma even KNOW that Spinner had “ball cancer”? Did Spinner even know that Emma had an eating disorder and her birth father is in a special needs facility? Hell, even Craig knows more about Emma than Spinner does since he went with her to see Shane! Sure Spinner knew she was vegan but I think all of Ontario knew that. I wish I could claim amnesia from Takes Manhattan so I can still watch the old episodes and not be depressed from knowing how things will end up. I want to get to the point where I tell myself that it won’t work out and Spin will drive down to NYC, find Jane, they’ll run off to California together where she’ll go to Stanford and he’ll get a job at a nearby coffee shop/café/diner and they’ll live happily ever after.

Why you hate Spemma: it went against all kinds of history of the show, it turned Jane into the bad person, it made Britney Spears first random marriage seem like a great idea, i've hated the new writers since 2006, stefan can eat a dick!

When you started watching Degrassi: since season 1
Favorite Characters: Emma, Jay, Sean, Peter, Clare
Favorite Ships: Peter/Emma, Sean/Emma, JT/Mia, Spinner/Darcy
Favorite Spinner Ship: Darcy
Favorite Emma Ship: Peter
Why you hate Spemma: Because characters where either written as OOC (Spinner and Emma or destroyed (Jane and Kelly) to create that pairing not to mention the pairing literally happened out of nowhere and makes Spinner and Emma look pathetic and fickle and Spinner an idiot since he married a woman who has never gotten over her first boyfriend and will never love anyone as much as she does him. Speaking of Sean, I will never understand what was the point of portraying him as the love of Emma's life and vise versa and Semma as end game if it wasn't going to go anywhere.
