So I had this really weird dream (cause I don't usually dream about real people being the real people? or me sort of being me and not third person viewer?) and it was, like, Jason Segel was working at a movie studio (as Jason Segel, the actor) and the studio was running this sort of contest thing to find the next 'based on a real story' movie idea and Jason was bolstering this dude bro tech startup that started with only $10,000 and built, like, a mini empire and Jason thought that that would be a great movie idea, but along the way he meets this girl who run a struggling, small town mac and cheese factory and the mac and cheese recipe was her mother's, but her mother had died and after that he father couldn't deal with making the mac and cheese anymore and left the girl to run everything herself and there were land developers trying to get her property to build condos on (so the whole small town was in danger) and a big time rival mac and cheese company was trying to steal her mother's secret recipe (like infiltrating her factory and everything) and she's struggling financially and so, of course, Jason kind of falls in love with her because she's a bit wild and determined but he doesn't really put it together that her story is the one that would make a really good movie (because he's a dude bro and an ass), but eventually, when she's at the point of ruin (like thinking of selling and her recipe may have been stolen by the other company, which is okay because Jason Segel suggests that she sue them for copyright infringement because "everyone wins stupid lawsuits these days!"... he's only on his way to being not an ass, not really there yet) that he decides to suggest her to the movie studio ("Zooey Deschanel could totally play you!")...
which, okay, that's not that weird of a dream right? The weird part was that I was, like, Jason's personal assistant, and had to deal with all his shit, but my whole thing was that I'd always be watching these terrible movies, and finally (when Jason wants my help to make his grand proposal and I'm like 'I can't believe you made me miss the one scene I was watching this for!') it turns out that I'm watching strictly for Breckin Meyer, who also works at this studio, but he's, like, the studio butt monkey, and they don't even really give him movies to do, but, like, commercials within movies where he gets beat up for being Breckin Meyer (like, being Breckin Meyer is the joke... it was awful) and I went on this whole thing about how Breckin Meyer was more actor that Jason could ever hope to be and how great he is and how I'm just trying to support his career the best I can and Jason Segel looked entirely surprised that anyone could be that passionate about Breckin Meyer.

I woke up before I found out what happened but I assume that the girl's factory and town were saved because either she won the contest or Jason Segel put up the money to make her movie himself and, since Jason was on his upswing to being a decent person, I also assume that he was nice to Breckin Meyer in some way at the end.

One side plot that was going on was that the studio was making 'Hanna Montana: The College Years' and one of the selling points was 'without Billy Ray lurking around!', which I think was maybe meant to explain what kind of studio it was or something.

I was watching the s2 ep1 of Cheyenne where Cheyenne meets a girl who needs help but is actually scamming people, and Cheyenne asks her name and it's Samantha, and then he asks if she has a middle name and it's Teresa (? close enough)... but apparently those are both too long of names for Cheyenne so he says he's just gonna call her Sam. Amazing. What is Cheyenne even?
I think he was also wearing leather pants in that ep. At least leather chaps. Good stuff. And then in the episode after that Cheyenne takes a three person tandem bath and then a guy dies by paddle boat paddle.


Okay, so I haven't gotten to see the new Ghostbusters yet (I'm totally dying about it, can't see it until this order is done and we're not delivering it until thursday, ugh), but I did watch the orig cause it was on tv and, like, I mean, Ray's totally gay for Venkman right? And Venkman likes girls, but also isn't above letting Ray blow him sometimes right? That's the vibe I got.


Have also been watching the bicycles that tour France and I don't understand anything about it... why France is apparently so large to tour (it's been, like, two weeks?), how far anyone goes because it's in kilometers, why they trade yellow shirts, how the teams work, why it isn't just a free for all about who bikes the fastest... but I do like that there was one guy who ran into a motorcycle and then ran up the hill without his bicycle and caused trouble which was apparently forgivable in that circumstance and hat the announcers are, like, british, so they're always saying that someone is in a 'spot of bother' and that's really lovely.

I had a dream last night that Cheyenne was totally into kissing guys. In a canoe. While going down a river. It would have been a good episode. I'm entirely sure there was some sort of plot going on too, but that was the important part.

Did an absolutely terrible art show this weekend. Possibly the worst one ever (of the ones we've actually set up at, rather than just looking around and leaving). It was billed as a juried fine art show with 30,000 visitors located in the heart of the Cultural District and next to the Museum of Art, Center for Arts, and the Performing Arts Center. There was no check in/info/booth sign/name tags/etc, almost no volunteers, gale force winds due to being in a wind tunnel that we weren't told about, a carnival set up a block over, and I'm pretty sure that no one walking through knew that it was an art show because they seemed entirely confused that there were people set up and that things were for sale and more than one person called it a flea market. Utter disaster.
Did see lots of dogs, lots of tattoos, and some cosplayers as there was also an anime convention going on.
And I got sunburned. My nose is still red and peel-y.

I missed the last two eps of Hudini and Doyle, so I'll have to find those somewhere.

Still watching BrainDead... I don't understand the aliens goals.

Have to catch up on the second ep of Dark Matter, but I assume they're still in jail.

Totally thinking about going to see Ghost Busters, even though I am not a slimer fan at all.

Petition to put Breckin Meyer and Nathan Fillion in a movie together? (? because of questionable NF feels but I mean like NF could entirely cover Breckin, like have you seen his latest tweet, so... there's that angle)


Dark Matter is back. And now mostly everyone is in jail? Which seems great for a space show... I guess it still counts because the jail is on a space rock or something... right?


I watched the second and third (which I had seen before) ep of Cheyenne.

The first one was about him and Smitty having to get some cattle back for a wagon train and Smitty had to pretend to be a gun salesman and Cheyenne had to pretend to be a cattle buyer. I like how friendly Cheyenne is about Smitty and how Smitty does not seem to care much about Cheyenne's love. I esp liked at the end when a married lady wanted to kiss Cheyenne and asked if that was okay and Cheyenne got a panicked look and glanced over at Smitty, but Smitty didn't care. Cheyenne truly is alone even when he thinks he has a bf.
I also liked that Cheyenne tried to comfort a kid who'd lost his brother by telling him about how he believes in what the cheyenne taught him, that no one ever really dies, they just continue on a different river path. And then he told the kid that it was okay to cry and that even brave indians cry and that that was fine. As the kids say on the tumblr... Cheyenne's not here for your toxic masculinity. (although, geeze, what that must have looked like for that lady... two guys in a room with a crying kid who isn't related to either one of them, like damn)

In the other ep Cheyenne meets two gold miners and helps them mine and everything turns out terribly. But. Cheyenne also said that he only lived with the cheyenne for 8 years (which would make it the place he's stayed the longest according to the finale, and maybe he was taken in as a baby of two years old?) (...I mean, Cheyenne has a wavering backstory about how old and when and for how long he was with the cheyenne, so, it's worth a hill of beans, but still, there's the 8 years). Also, Cheyenne was tempted to stay by the offer of food in this ep. And he waxed poetic about how (because he's fiddle footed, aww) he roams and can't find any kind of home. He also took his shirt off twice and I'm partial to the scene where they're trying to sleep and everyone keeps getting up and Cheyenne is 'ugh' about it. Like first there was the mountain lion and now no one will go the fuck to sleep.

Also, I like when Cheyenne can speak other languages. He knows at least a little in multiple native languages and also some spanish, because of the time he spends in mexico. Good on him.

Breckin Meyer called Seth his boo. I can't.


I missed ep 9 of Houdini and Doyle and I'm sure it was entirely tragic.

I also missed the latest ep of BrainDead, so I don't know who's been ant-ified.


When I started s7 of Cheyenne I was kind of underwhelmed and figured it was a total blow off, but it, like, wasn't really.

In the last episode ever Cheyenne decides that he wants to settle down and find a bit of land somewhere. My feels are full of feeling. The canon otp of Cheyenne/drifting is in serious peril.
So Cheyenne starts off finding an injured sheep and picks it up and pets it and says soft things to it and it's wonderful, he should have sheep all the time. But when he gets to town everyone hates him because of sheep. It's a whole range war thing about cattle vs sheep and Cheyenne is not looking to be part of it. The sheriff is a guy he knew a long time ago and who is shocked that Cheyenne wants to settle down because, according to the sheriff, Cheyenne's never stayed in one place for more that 8 years. (which really seems like an eternity for Cheyenne and I wonder when that was and why he stayed for so long, I mean, he only really stayed with the cheyenne until he was 12 (which was when he became a brave and had to go and make his fortune amongst the white man, only to return a few years later) but even as a child he could barely stay anywhere, ugh) Cheyenne goes out to see the ranch he was thinking of buying but it turns out that the rancher only wants to sell because sheep are moving in and because Cheyenne is a gentleman he says he won't steal the ranch from this guy (and the guy's daughter is very happy because her mother is buried out back and it's her home and her and her almost husband wants to stay so Cheyenne really can't). But there's trouble brewing between the sheep herders and the cattlemen and the sheriff asks Cheyenne to help and Cheyenne doesn't want to and tries to say he doesn't want to (like three or four different times and he just looks so tired of people asking him to fight their battles for them and my feels) but because he's Cheyenne he helps anyway. He gets yelled at by the rancher he was going to buy from for sticking his nose where it doesn't belong and he gets yelled at by the lady who owns the sheep for being suspicious of her and it's awful. But they find the real bad guy (who, amazingly, was not Cheyenne's old friend the sheriff) and everyone thanks Cheyenne for fixing their lives and asks Cheyenne to say, but, because Cheyenne/drifting truly is the canon otp of the show, Cheyenne must leave immediately and drift some more, still looking for a bit of land to settle down on (and probably a town that won't ask him for help every five mins).
I very nearly cried.


Then I watched the first episode of Cheyenne, which I hadn't seen, and which was adorable with him and his talented artist partner Smitty who they probably could have kept and then Smitty could have drawn detailed sketches of Cheyenne's many adventures (and also probably of his and Smitty's naked adventures under the stars or whatever). I'm glad the dog lived. And I'm glad the lady already had a fiance, because then they could subtly hint that Cheyenne was not into ladies when she was sure that there was some lady out there that cared about Cheyenne the way she cared for her army guy only for Cheyenne to mumble about how maybe there was and quickly disengage to go talk to Smitty.

Cheyenne ran a blind lady and her black maid over with his stampeding cattle and then after helping her up he waved his hand in front of her face like he'd never seen a blind person before. He tried to get her to be a singer for a church but she decided that she would rather be a singer in a gambling hall. Cheyenne was very bitchy about it. She got him arrested for murder. But then it all worked out.

Cheyenne had a cute young bf in one ep who he was surveying railroad plans with. Some people had trouble with him making deals with the local shoshone tribe for the land for the rail road and tried to kill him (multiple times, first by a guy who hated "big guys"). Cheyenne also won a chinese lady in a (rigged) lottery (that was supposed to raised money to send her back to san francisco) and Cheyenne tried to get his bf to explain why he couldn't actually accept her as his winnings and the bf thought it was all real cute that Cheyenne looked like he was gonna cough up a hairball at the idea of him being "lord and master" to this girl. She follows them out on the trial and his bf suggests that they get a place of their own (cause they'd been staying in a hotel) and let her take care of the place and it all could have been very sweet and domestic. But then the guys try to kill Cheyenne again using the girl. They wanted her to poison him, but she poisoned herself instead, so Cheyenne and his bf went out to confront the guys and his bf got shot in the shoulder. In the end his bf and the girl both had to head to a doctor in san francisco together. It was actually a pretty sweet episode.

Then Cheyenne became a jr senator and tried to pass a bill to save the buffalo, but he nearly got himself impeached for saloon brawling and gun slinging.

Cheyenne drugged an old friend and fireman carried him out of a saloon so that he wouldn't get drunk and shoot another guy. I mean, there was other stuff in the episode, like Cheyenne still wearing his corduroy shirt and another guy wearing a corduroy vest, but, like, the important part was that Cheyenne hinted to a bartender to pour his friend a drink that would knock him out in seconds and them, while smiling and looking entirely pleased with himself, hoisted the guy over his shoulder and hauled him off. Okay, well, there was also an amazing fist fight.

For the last two eps Cheyenne has worn a very nice corduroy shirt with oddly spaced buttons. It's like a new fall-ish outfit. I also like his plaid jacket that he wears for cooler (but not cold) weather. Maybe he'll wear the corduroy shirt and the jacket.
He also pranced around a puddle cause he didn't want to get his boots muddy... like, dude, just walk around the thing. And he met a lady who didn't make eyes at him because she was in love with another man and not even Cheyenne's chest could turn her from him. Amazing. (in the end they were going to get married and asked Cheyenne to stay for the wedding, but Cheyenne had to leave to go explain why his prisoners he was escorting to jail while being a marshal were dead)

eta:

Some vague (but still probs spoilery?) POI thoughts below the Read more...Collapse )




I kind of can't deal with Breckin Meyer and Nathan Fillion going to the Harry Potter theme park together. I mean, how dare they. And for wearing wizard hats.
(I know NF is kinda dickish and I feel like he could be a bad influence for Breckin, but, well, Breckin is also a grown man who probably has a fair amount of dickish bro qualities too, so why should I judge... also I can't ever forgive NF for getting his other friends roles in things but not getting Breckin anything?)

I love Breckin being around guys who are taller than him. (NF is, like, nearly a whole foot taller than Breckin)

Also, I have so many questions. Did they go their with their respective families? Was it the plan for them to be together or did they just sort of run into each other? Who takes their pictures? Why wasn't MPG invited along? Do NF and MPG not get along? Does Breckin have to choose between friends? Does each friend get him on a different day of the week? Is there a schedule? I need someone to always be looking after Breckin.

Or, even worse, does MPG not like Harry Potter? Does Breckin believe in magical things and MPG is stubbornly stuck with non magical thinking? Does Breckin pick sticks off the ground and says 'Look at this fine wand!' and MPG goes 'that's a stick, Breckin.'? Is it a source of contention between them? Or does Breckin affectionately call MPG his muggle? Is NF ever mean to MPG about being a muggle and Breckin has to be cross with him about it?

So many questions.



eta again.
In this morning's ep of Cheyenne he got shot in the upper arm and his nice corduroy shirt got torn.
I had kind of almost written off s7 as fairly fluffy final season stuff, but this ep... damn. So it's 1863 (which is pretty early I think? there was one ep in s3 that's 1865 or so, and I think that's more of a "remembered" episode? cause there's a voice over. and this one is just... happening. Cheyenne exists outside of time.) Anywho, Cheyenne rides into town and he's been carting supplies to and fro and decides to quit because he's bored. And there's been a treaty signed with the indians about them not going onto land and white people not going onto other land, but an indian rides into town anyway because his wife is sick. And Cheyenne's the only one who will listen to him and and in his expert opinion thinks it sounds like pneumonia and he asks the town doctor to ride out and check on her and the doc's like 'I'll give you some pills but I'm not going anywhere' and Cheyenne's like 'but you don't even know what she has' as though he wasn't diagnosing her five seconds ago. (I'm terribly disappointed that we didn't get a 'Cheyenne had pneumonia' episodes... 107 eps and not one where he has to do things he doesn't want to do while sick, sad) He convinces the doc to ride out to help her and she's hacking up a lung and I think to myself 'she has the consumption' because that's what any lady who coughs in the 1800's has and then the doc comes out of the tent and tells Cheyenne that she does, in fact, have the consumption. And the only way to cure it would be to go to the sanitoriam in Denver, but they won't let her in because she's a native and also it would cost a lot of gold. So they apologize to the husband and then just ride away. Harsh. But the husband comes up with gold to help his wife, only he gets accused of stealing it from some miners who were found shot and scalped. Cheyenne's the only one who stands up for him. Even the sioux chief says he's to be hanged. Harsh. So Cheyenne goes to have a talk with his old friend, the sheriff. The sheriff see a scar on Cheyenne's wrist and concludes that he's a blood brother to the cheyenne people. (he does it like he's figured out some huge secret... 'Cheyenne... of the Cheyenne tribe'... like Cheyenne doesn't drop that he's lived with them literally anytime someone brings up how they don't like natives). Turns out he was raised by the sioux chief as his son and he has a plan to save the husband from being hanged. Cheyenne is terrible grateful that someone that's not him has a plan. It all goes wrong and the husband escapes and Cheyenne gets winged... the sheriff complains about it just being a scratch, and the doc says that it's an inch deep and two inches long and then mumbles about how he guesses Cheyenne is probably find to ride a horse and Cheyenne spends the rest of the episode wincing (he also backs his wounded arm into a rock during a gun fight and almost gets shot again because of it). It turns out that the local cook is off torturing the husband for the location of where he got his gold (because there's tons of gold in the black hills that no white people can get to because of the new treaty) and kills him and his wife runs out and tells the cook where the gold is is they'll just spare her husband and then when she finds out that he's dead the cook shoots her. So harsh. Like this is overly violent for this show. Eventually Cheyenne's old friend betrays him and everyone dies and Cheyenne promises to the sioux chief to not reveal the location of the gold and then rides back into town to explain why the sheriff and three citizens are dead.

Ugh. Harry's mom. I'm a river of sadness. (I mean, it's not like I didn't know it would happen, because obvs real harry's real mom died, but still) And right after he said he's take her home too. *cries forever* Also, Harry not knowing how to whistle and him getting buried alive. And Arthur Conan's friendship with Stoker. Aww. Also Also, I totally hope that all three go to America to solve Adalaid's husband's mystery.


BrainDead. Like, it's gross and weird but I'm still watching it.


*cries forever about POI* No, no, whatever, I'm fine. ... I'm not... shit, he looked so happy... ugh... I can't.


The first ep of s7 of Cheyenne was far too slapsticky for me and I couldn't really deal with it. But it involved Cheyenne nearly having to marry a girl, who was perfectly fine, really, and she didn't actually care much about Cheyenne because she had wanted another guy but her brothers had killed him and killed other people and tried to kill Cheyenne (but Cheyenne was wise to it all) and he had to eventually take them all (plus her mother) in to be hanged or something. Anyway she ended up alone and working in a diner, which was fine because she was a good cook and made nice pie and then a good looking guy came in and they made eyes at each other and Cheyenne was like 'yo, I'm, like, leaving...?' and she didn't care at all, which pleased Cheyenne immensely.

The next ep was had Cheyenne being accused of killing some people on a mountain. And then he met a big game hunter who had been sent there to kill the very large creature that apparently roamed the mountain killing people. And this hunter was nearly as tall as Cheyenne and was older than him and him and Cheyenne shot a bear together and Cheyenne thought they were going to be totally friends and he lounged by the fire as the guy told him about hunting tigers and stuff. But then the guy was like 'you have to be careful about guy who are big, so easy to kill people... you know that.' and Cheyenne's like 'you think I'm killing people too?' and then he ties Cheyenne up and used him as bait to draw this creature out. Very Fay Ray. Cheyenne escaped and the hunter ended up dead and the whole thing turned out to be a white guy who had lived with the indians and had a kid with one of them and the kid had, like, gigantism and was shunned by the indians so they had to go live in an indian death cave (which I don't know if those were actual things but it was a cave decorated with skulls like the paris catacombs ???) and was very upset about guns because people were always trying to kill him and Cheyenne was totally unsympathetic about the whole thing and was like 'you're a white person, why didn't you just take him to live with your own kind?' (which kind of sounds like something Cheyenne probably heard a lot) and the guy was like 'we tried, they hated him too' and Cheyenne's all 'so you taught him to kill' and then the son grabs Cheyenne's rifle and tries to destroy it and shoots himself and the father's all 'you killed my son' and Cheyenne's like 'he shot himself!' and then the father blows up the whole mountain with dynamite.

Both eps were just... odd? It's too bad the last one wasn't actually about sasquatch. But I do like when everyone accuses Cheyenne of things he didn't do, with no proof that he did those things other then he's there and he's big and they don't know him.

After that Cheyenne got invited to a town just in time to meet up with an old friend and vouch for him and the friend was, like, really amazing and helped get a church built and made a leg brace for a lame child and bought a poor girl a pretty dress and took her to a dance. But since he was an old friend of Cheyenne's he also robbed the bank and took six bags of gold.

At this point I feel like towns would just start banning Cheyenne from entering, esp if he knew anyone there.

Cheyenne's had, like, four kid episodes in a row and it's terrible. I do not care about children because I'm awful and I mean I guess all the children weren't terrible, but it's like, damn, spread that out a little. The child in the latest episode was terrible, he had absolutely no discipline and I kinda wish Cheyenne had shot him in the face when he pulled a toy gun on Cheyenne in the beginning.

Besides that it was kind of a wild episode because Cheyenne had two lady suitors on a train (and a prisoner who was as tall as him that he was on first name and semi friendly basis with, so they also made eyes). The first lady was a tarty saloon entertainer who Cheyenne knew and who was leaving town because apparently the cowhands in town think they're all great lovers, but aren't. She had a couple of dinners with Cheyenne and flirted about how she though her and Cheyenne might try to make a go of it. I thought maybe Cheyenne might try to jump off the train, but instead he also went and made eyes with the mother of the terrible child. She was a window from out east and stared at Cheyenne like he was a prime steak. The blond disappeared in the middle of the episode once Cheyenne decided to canoodle with the widow. But the best part was talk of Cheyenne's free nature. First the widow asked the train conductor about him and the train conductor was like 'Oh, Cheyenne? Well, he's wild. Not mean, but he could do with some taming none the less.' and then, after the widow enticed Cheyenne with a picnic, Cheyenne talked about a wild stallion that they saw, said all sorts of things about how he wouldn't be tamed and wouldn't let anyone pen him in, and the camera lingered on Cheyenne's face, and then the widow's face, and then the widow's mother's face, who then in the next scene straight up told the widow that Cheyenne was talking about himself and not the horse. (the horse they used was so pretty. it must have been a Warner Bros studio horse because I'm sure I've seen it in other episodes... like the episode just two eps before this one, but also possibly another, when ever the need wild stallions. solid black, long legs and neck, and they shine it up real good) So eventually the widow asks if Cheyenne could live out east, and Cheyenne asks if she could live out west, and that was the end of that because it would never actually work. Then the blond showed back up and made some eyes at Cheyenne and said that 'there are lots of things to do in Denver' which I can only assume actually meant 'there are lots of places to do me in Denver' and Cheyenne seemed into some casual sex that didn't involve a lonely widow with a terrible child, so off they went.


Then there was an ep I'd already seen, but it's a good one. A bunch of men in town get letters saying that they're all going to die and then this lady shows up and these men start dying and Cheyenne puts two and two together and surmises that the lady is killing these guys (like, I mean, as soon as she gets out of the wagon these guys start falling all over themselves to be nice to her and Cheyenne is immediantly suspicious and accusing her of wrong doings), but all the guys are just shocked (one punches Cheyenne in the face) that Cheyenne would suggest such a thing because she's just a lady and ladies don't do that. And at that point Cheyenne completely took offence at people telling him he was wrong, so he set out to prove himself by hiring a handwriting expert, but the hand writing didn't match and the lady's like 'Oh Cheyenne, did you think I'd use my own handwriting?'. And then she tries to canoodle Cheyenne a bit because he strong and not terrible like she thinks all those other men are and Cheyenne's not going for it and they ride past a tree and she freaks out, so now Cheyenne knows to look through old pictures of hangings and figures everything out and puts on a whole reenactment of the lady's father's hanging and she confesses to everything.

Besides all that there was a little girl at the beginning of the ep (fifth ep now to have a kid in it) and she called Cheyenne over to complain to him that her widow father was lonely and needed someone to love, and it kind of looked like she was trying to set Cheyenne up with her dad, and Cheyenne looked mildly interested, but then she said that it should be a nice lady like her mother was and wanted to know if Cheyenne knew how to hook her father up with someone and it's like, kid, why are you asking Cheyenne, he cares not for ladies and marriage, so Cheyenne just laughed and told her that you can't push things like that and if they happen they happen, but I think secretly Cheyenne was disappointed that another nice man with a small ranch wasn't going to marry him.

Arthur Conan was poisoned with ergot. Harry tried to help, but failed, so Arthur Conan cured himself of his ergot poisoning (which entirely seems plausible). Then he had the heart eyes because he had successfully communicated his predicament to Harry through telepathy. Harry did not agree. Harry also talked about how he had to punch his way through 8" of ice. No one cared.


POI... my feels, they hurt.


Occasionally there will be someone taller than Cheyenne on Cheyenne. This is lovely because it makes Cheyenne look like a totally normal sized person and I think he likes it. There was one guy who was like a whole head taller (and possibly wider too) and he was a criminal but Cheyenne had to work with him and Cheyenne just sort of hung back and let him lead him around and didn't think about fighting him or anything.

Cheyenne also thought that his birth father was still alive for a bit. And he went to White Cloud, his cheyenne father, to confirm it and this guy was a total dick to Cheyenne, like when he found out who Cheyenne was thinking was his white father he basically disowned Cheyenne and took back his Grey Fox name and it was horrible and tragic. And then Cheyenne's possible white father was also a missive dick, as was his possible brother. And Cheyenne was so hurt and upset that his family was awful, like he waxed poetic about how family meant that you were closer than friends and that nothing could come between you and how he always thought it'd be so great to have a family. Plus the father wanted Cheyenne to get married. To a girl. And that he'd bear him some grandsons. And this was before Cheyenne knew how dickish everyone was, but he was seriously thinking about leaving when his possible father suggested that, like Cheyenne got this sort of panicked look and was like 'well, first let me go look at part of the ranch and we'll see if this whole thing is a good fit...'.
Anyway, it turned out to entirely be a trick concocted by the white guy's son where he'd get his father thinking that Cheyenne was his son, and then kill Cheyenne, so that the father could finally move on from his whole 'the son I never had' spiel that he'd always tossed in the other son's face. And I'm pretty sure White Cloud was in on it too so that he could get some land back for his people. So overall it was just super horrible and tragic for Cheyenne and in the end he was basically left even more alone than before. Ugh.

Cheyenne also thought he had a hand in getting a guy killed, so he took the guy's kid's back to his mother and then decided to stay around to fill the space the guy had left (like he helped with the farming and wrangled some horses and the guy's father called him son, idk it seemed pretty great and kind of like the family Cheyenne's wanted). But then he found out that the guy had actually been really terrible (like, he never worked, and beat the horses, and possibly raped his wife... she needed a lock on her door, so) and as soon as Cheyenne found out that he wasn't replacing a decent guy he was ready to bounce. And the wife is like 'but we all really like you Cheyenne, you're a decent guy, and so helpful.' and Cheyenne's like 'no, I have to leave immediately. this isn't my life. what am I even doing here'. And there was a quasi dictator around town and he was going to take everyone's wedding rings as taxes and the local priest (who had told Cheyenne to not bother feeling guilty about the guy and to not bother staying around) was like 'Cheyenne, maybe god has sent you to help us now.' and Cheyenne (on his horse, ready to leave) is all 'I don't think so.' but then he gets arrested so he has to help out anyway.
