Hello! I'm Desiree and I like to draw and get overly invested in stories. This is just a random art blog and space for flailing over shiny things! Constantly having a situation over morally ambiguous villains. Feel free to poke me about anything! :)
Discussing character flaws and why distain for any character is all a matter of personal preference.
I’m sure you’ve heard, or maybe uttered these words before. “But ___ has done so many bad things, how could you like them and hate ___?”, ” you hate ___ but you like ___ for the same reasons”, or ” ___’s actions make sense and you still don’t like them?”
On tumblr, we have a natural need to defend the characters we love, often forgetting the vast diversity of ways people respond to character flaws. there are some characters who are coveted; that people make you feel guilty for not liking. Likewise, there are some characters that will tend to get you hate for taking an interest in. I wanted to talk a little bit about how there are several valid ways to respond to a character, and why character hate isn’t always as simple as a moral or plot based response. I am going to categorize different reasons one might object to a character and discuss them briefly.
This is extremely excellent, and especially this: As long as there is no objective statements made that suggest that a character is owed love or hate by the fandom beyond the individual, a person is right to respond to a character as they wish.
imagine your favorite character leaning over and reassuringly patting your shoulder with a sympathetic smile as they say
“i know i ruined your life”
