    Quote Lulu Lover: I'm very happy that the Giants won!!!


    WOW - another win for your Giants - with losses by the Eagles and Cowboys I believe they could be just 2 games out of first place. With a super QB like Eli Manning you can never count them out.

    Those poor Cowboys,so close to a win yesterday....darn those Detroit Loins!! Who would have thought that KC would be the only undefeated team at this point in the season.

    Quote Caitie: Hi all! I haven’t been around lately because I just don’t feel the same Lante magic that I used to enjoy, and I respect that this board is for those of you who still do. Sometimes, I do miss the feeling of being so invested, but, try as any of us might, we can’t “think” ourselves into feeling – it just has to be there. That said, I still care about what happens to Lante … and the characters of both Dante and Lulu are still very important to me.

    So, like those of you here who “travel” around, I have been really disappointed, especially this past week, to read all the negative comments about Lante and specifically about Lulu. Lulu has been dear to my heart for a long time – pre-dating Dante and Lante – and I do NOT enjoy reading so much negativity.

    Sadly failing to be understood has been a cross Lulu has often had to bear. Just look at 2011 when she was judged harshly for her actions in a year when she suffered an accumulation of many emotional trials and roadblocks – serious lies from Dante; her nephew dying because of her father’s actions; said father falling into booze and alienation from his family; a “shattering” experience at the Haunted Star with Luke; a failed intervention; Luke’s disappearance; the departure of one brother (Nik); a relapse into drug use by another brother (Lucky); an overall feeling that the family she wanted so much had slipped away from her; an abortive attempt to find Luke; and then another near-fatal shooting of Dante – on the very night she was about to accept his marriage proposal. Yet, even with the accumulation of all this emotional upheaval, Lulu was condemned for her subsequent reactions – just as she is being harshly judged now for an understandably highly emotional response.

    I guess this might show a couple of things. First, soap fans sometimes don’t look too deeply in characters’ motives and sometimes live only “in the moment” without consideration of the accumulation of events and emotions. Second, essentially “good” characters can sometimes be held to higher standards than the acknowledged “bad” ones. But, these negative reactions can be put in the past (and this is why I included the 2011 example). If fans could find it in their hearts and minds to eventually understand … and then forgive and forget … Lulu’s perceived missteps that year, they can also do so in the current story.

    So I am hoping to see this story progress with fairly presented POV for all of the main players!!! To create this fair POV, I’m hoping RC writes the “beats” of the story for everyone. Sometimes, in his rush to create “plot points,” he uses his characters like chess pieces to put in place to further his story outlines – rather than as complex individuals with varying emotions.

    Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend.


    Totally agree Caitie. Expecially the bold above. Soap fans are a fickle bunch. I too have been going to other sites, which I rarely do, and I shake my head at all the Lulu ranting. I don't find her reactions to the total destruction of her dream for her family at all unexpected. What I find disheartening is the reaction from many as to why she's reacting this way. Seems that some feel she is doing this purely to hurt Maxie. That has never been Lulu and never could.
    Can't say I'm thrilled with RC's perception right now. I feel there could have been many ways to show both Maxie and Lulu in a sympathetic light but guess that doesn't fit his senario at this time. I'm hoping that in some way, in the not too distant future, he is planning to turn this around and bring some of the sympathy that is so lavishly flowing for Maxie right now to bathe Lulu.
    It doesn't surprise me that Lulu would react this way. Seems like for the first time she has finally been within reach of the kind of family she has dreamed of, always wanted to be a part of, and now it's being pulled from her grasp again. Who wouldn't fight for it?
    Hopefully, when we're able to see Dante's POV that will help lessen the animosity toward Lulu.
    Fans can turn on a dime, not waiting for the payoff but judging a character by each episode, and for me, that's a sad thing. Seems like fans want story lines on soaps to be like their favorite prime time shows now. They want the instant gratification of the wrapped up story in an hour instead of the slow, steady, build so we can get much deeper into the story, the characters, and the who, what, when, where and why of the characters and the story before we judge.

    You could swing by my place when you're done cleaning your house.

    I'm available for recaps today.

    'Not waiting for the payoff...judging a character by each episode'

    Daisy,you put it perfectly for me....great great post,esp that last paragraph!!

    Lulu and Dante are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Had they handed the baby over right after the truth reveal at the christening,they probably would have been called fickle and that they only cared about blood ties. Although I want them to give up the baby,if told fairly/both get pov,this is story for them....not my favourite,but better then several in the past I've watched them in. IMO
