Hello, friends, and welcome to season three’s last EarperView! You know, when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When life gives you rats, you make a smoothie. When life has a missing EarperView and you’ve promised three for the week, well, you improvise. So I give you an EarperView written from the viewpoint of the true Earp heir…Willa Earp.
Tell us a little bit about your non-Earper alter ego.
I have no non-Earper alter ego. I was raised by an alcoholic father who groomed me for Heirhood since I was young, and then I was kidnapped by a Revenant, then it was the treehouse for a while, and then some time at the commune. Then back home with the sisters, all to end with…well, I’d hate to give away the end of the story. Let’s just say I’m pretty Earpy. The Earpiest Earp around, some say.
SHUT UP, SOME WOULD SAY THAT.
How did you find Wynonna Earp and the fandom?
WYNONNA EARP WOULD BE NOTHING WITHOUT ME.
This fandom is pretty rad, though. Lynn Rachels is the best of us, am I right?
Is this your first fandom?
No. I was very into Lost Girl at the commune. One of my sisters there wrote the best Valkubus fanfic.
What is your favorite fandom memory?
When Megan stitched me. Oh, that’s right. She never did. She only stitched my sister. And Waverly. And Doc. And that ginger cop. And that cop and Wynonna’s sister together. And then for Christmas. And Nedley. And the show runner and creator. And a bunch of words. And KIERSTEN, my favorite barista. But never the true Earp heir.
What is your favorite con memory?
Meeting Emily Andras, former show runner of Lost Girl. She was so excited to meet me, too.
What is your favorite Wynonna Earp/Earper activity?
Making Waverly put herself into dangerous situations and thinking it was her idea. “Waverly, walk on the ice. Get your stuffed animal.” “Waverly, walk on the beam or I’ll tell on you.” Good times.
What has Wynonna Earp come to mean to you?
That bitch stole my gun and my title.
Are there any pictures you’d like to share of your Wynonna Earp experience?
Yes. Here is one of me with the former show runner of Lost Girl at a con.
Here we are having a dance-off. Obviously I won, because I am good at everything.
Here are some a gays trying to take a photo, but I made it better by showing up.
Sweet potato or Yukon Gold potato?
I thought this was a serious interview. What kind of a question is this? Also, do you ever wonder how a potato feels when it’s in the ground?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you Fandras?
Describe why Fandras is a thing in 7 words or less.
She makes even the worst characters sympathetic.
What is your favorite Earp sisters moment?
Probably with Willa and Wynonna in the barn, where Willa reminds Wynonna that she’s not alone anymore. I also like when Willa and Wynonna attack everyone with guns and where they go drinking at Shorty’s. Oh, and when Wynonna hit me on the head with a chamber pot.
How have you Earped your life?
Coconut oil. We used it for everything at the commune.
What’s the Earpiest thing you’ve ever done?
Bobo Del Ray.
Well, everyone, many thanks to you for reading this week’s off-the-cuff EarperView. Many thanks to Nedley’s Office for the photo assist, and to her, Heidi, and my Earper fantasy-football league for assuring me that this wasn’t a horrible idea! I hope it brought a little chuckle to you, and I’ll see you all on Twitter for the finale (and some of you in real life!).
I do want to take a moment to thank everyone who reads these EarperViews and especially the people who very kindly agreed to do one this season. Your trust in me and willingness to let us get to know you a little bit better is something I take very seriously, and I hope it shows. I’m so grateful, I love doing these, and I hope they brought you a little joy every week.
That being said…I’m looking forward to a break. I’ll see you guys in season four.
