does anyone else have this other self theyve created in their mind that is not really exactly you irl but is more like what you want to be and has a life that continues in your head with like weird continuing daydreams but theyre not perfect or anything and wow i forget where i was going with this
I understand, the six I have won’t shut up.
today in philosophy i learned that witches were portrayed as riding broomsticks because back in the day it was a euphemism for riding the devil’s dick so just think about that before you consider dressing up as a witch for halloween
On that subject, I will add this
For on this day, three years ago, a group of roleplayers came together in peace and created a holiday of tolerance and understanding that I now wish to share with you.
I present to you, the holiday of Tarrasquemas!
And on this day of feasting, remember to be kind to everyone, even if they look a little monstrous.
Two words, guys:
How to explain this for non-DMC or videogame fans:
Imagine your favorite character from your TV show or book. The book or TV show could set in a sci-fi world, or cyberpunk dystopia. You know how this character is and who they are, and you adore them for that. A character that you would want as a friend.
Now imagine another writer took the reigns of your show or book and turned it into a super-edgy social commentary (SCRW DA GOVMENT WE R TEH 99 PER CEN ANONYMOOSE IS LEGUN I HATE RICH OLD PEOPLE) with little to no resemblance to the original material. On top of that, he bastardizes your character entire personality and turns him into an edgy rebel who tries too hard to be “cool” but ends up being an unfriendly douchebag. There is nothing intrinsically redeeming about the character. Just being a protagonist doesn’t make a character good. And judging from how he treats almost everyone, you would definitely not want to be his friend.
AND PRESTO! You’ll never see, read about or experience your favorite character ever again.
It’s like reality collectively forgot DMC2 so well that they had to go make the same mistake again, only so much worse.
I know little about DMC, but your complaints seem similar to the ones Metroid fans have over Other M.
Hahahaha ever since Saturday the Korra finale seems to make me angrier and angrier. As a storyteller and as a fan of solid storytelling, it is an atrocious mess! I stand by the creators are amazing directors, amazing concept artists, amazing producers, but wow are they terrible writers. They have absolutely no understanding of dramatic convention, and so the first season of The Legend of Korra suffered greatly from terrible execution, and the core ideas were so good it should’ve been a gamechanger. It should’ve been the most brilliant thing on television and instead we were given a 12-week narrative case of blue balls.
Disclaimer: if you enjoyed/love/fanatic about Korra, by all means continue to do so! I enjoyed a lot about Korra. In fact that is why I am so frustrated. But that aside, this is meant as a critique and a dissection and as such you can take it or you can leave it. Nothing I have to say will change the show, nor will anything I have to say will have any effect on what season 2 will bring. Mostly I have been ranting about it to everyone on a daily basis since Saturday and this is my way to finally just. get. it. all. out. So this is me shouting into the ether for my own cathartic glee.
Moral: Medium is no excuse for bad storytelling.
Why do people in any industry, video games, books, cartoons or otherwise think they can create plot-heavy worlds, and then cheap out on the writing?
