When In Doubt, Go to the Source...  
So, after experiencing fear and trembling because of the rumor being bandied about that Stephanie March is going to return to SVU to either a) guest star as ADA Cabot again or b) ::shudder:: share the spotlight with or permanently replace Diane Neal as ADA Cabot, I decided rumors suck and I wrote to the columnist whose column was causing such dismay. (Or, in the case of some people, glee.)

The following is my letter and AmyTVGal's response:

I see in your column that Ms. March is going to reprise her role on SVU. However, you--probably deliberately--did not mention whether or not this was going to be a permanent return to the show or just another strange and unfortunate visit from Witness Protection.

Please tell me that it is the latter.

Diane Neal is an important part of SVU and I would hate to see her sloughed by the wayside simply because some people can't get over the loss of Stephanie March.

I am a Diane Neal fan. Not a Stephanie March fan.

Isn't it time we moved on from Alex Cabot?

Fret not -- it was just a one time guest appearance. Sorry for causing you

Thanks for reading and for writing. Write any time.


So, voila. She was either referring to the episode "Ghost", which is replaying sometime this week, or she is referring to another guest star appearance. But SM is NOT returning to SVU to steal The Limer Goddess's thunder.

Yeah, that was sort of my response too.

Except it was more like "Rumors wouldn't be rumors if people just asked a few questions!"

Totally. I really wasn't feeling up to a long-term picket of Ironbone's office.

LOL... I was thinking about writing too... this was, after all, a main contributor to yesteday's foul mood (it was right up there with not getting my Pepsi and cracking part of my cellphone).

Quite relieved :)

Me too. Good god, but my Limer RAGE was in full on mode at least twice yesterday. I was so happy this columnist was nice enough to answer my rather whine-tastic letter. :D

Thank goodness. I mean, I love Steph and all, but...yeah.

I loved Steph too. I just think it's better to move on then move backwards.

Damn! - looks around nervously - I mean, jolly good news.

Fanfic, hoyah, C/O v A/O aside, I'm kind of disappointed that we couldn't have two female ADAs for the show, or even add another female cop. SVU might not be nowhere near as bad as some of the others, but there are just too few interesting female non-mother/wife/daughter type characters on television right now. But I guess that's a rant for another time.

Darn double negatives, where's the edit button when you need it?

Don't let the Limer Army catch you! ;)

I agree with you re: the derth of good female characters on TV at the moment. Particularly when they start FIRING THEM FOR NO REASON (Producers of COLD CASE, you SUCK!!)

ralstralst on October 18th, 2005 06:52 pm (UTC)
I fear not the Limer Army ... for I am pure of heart and excepting of diversity *g*

Cold Case is just a prime example of the boys club. They appoint a female lead and suddenly think all other females are superfluous. Are there any female-female cop shows left?

You make me smile. :) And yeah, fear not the Limer Army, hon. You run Passion & Perfection. That's a lifelong pass from any harassment from anyone.

Or it should be, anyway.

Why does Alex need to come back anyway? She's supposed to be in the Witness Protection Program, not the OMG-I'M-COMING-BACK-ONCE-EVERY-SEASON-BECAUSE-NO-ONE-CAN-LET-ME-GO-EVEN-THOUGH-IT'S-BEEN-TWO-FUCKING-SEASONS-ALREADY-SINCE-I-"DIED"-LOLZ Program.

Yes. See, that's exactly how I feel. Exactly! :D
