To Bring or Not To Bring Kol Mikaelson Back?
TVD executive producer Julie Plec took to social media to respond to one such incident of unpleasantness directed at her as part of the Bring Kol Mikaelson Back campaign.
Julie recently received the following tweet: "@julieplec It's not good going against the fans wish for Kol to live. It could give you a bad reputation as a writer.” Now, this is probably not the only tweet of its kind, but it’s the one Julie chose to respond to as representative of this negative side of television fandom.
“Let me elaborate,” Julie began in her response, written in its entirety on TwitLonger. “Storytelling is not a democracy and it never will be. I love and admire the passion of the Kol fan base, but no petition, or trending topic, or ongoing twitter assault on my mentions is going to make us do something we don't believe is right or necessary for the show right now. Some of you have gotten a bit meanly personal. Others have shown nothing but grace. And your enthusiasm means the world to all of us. But if you want a choose-your-own adventure, go to the library. Otherwise, find it in your hearts to trust that we love the story we're telling and are going to keep giving 1000% of our creative souls to it — even when it makes a few people unhappy. Maybe one day you'll see Kol again when the story is right. Maybe not. I hope you'll keep watching anyway.”
