oh boy. for starters, if ive made you uncomfortable by all means, block me pls. or unfollow or whatever you need to do. im not trying to make your dash or whatever else unpleasant.
as for what the fic does or doesn’t deserve, since it was a liveblog that guaranteed a certain number of successive posts at least. if you feel the quantity was excessive, well i guess that’s a matter of perspective. i did tag my blogging so that it was blockable.
the authors spelling, to their credit, had zero problems until it came to spanish. it could be a reading disorder that only applies to non standardized english but i do feel its more likely to be lazy american nonsense. and yes the writer was white and american.
and as for who cares, well, we do. this entire exercise may seem purposeless to you. and i could understand why, who sits and reads shit they hate to dogpile on it with their friends? that should be the definition of bullying.
except, my friend who rec’d this? she reads everything in the fdtd tags and ao3. she’s seen every offense and every bit of fuckery thats come through since hte series premiered. and it was her who pointed out that this fic is both symbolic and symptomatic of every last problem in the from dusk till dawn fandom.
and it is not the immaturity. it is not the silly plot. we wouldn’t bother reading it if its only problem was that it was unpolished in its craft. it is abusive. its racist. it is misogynist. and i think was pisses me off the most was how thoroughly it erases the existence and humanity of poc in order to create an all white lens for a show based on meso american mytho, latin american settings, and the presentation of brown ppl.
and if you find my ego or lack of tact more vile than that, well there’s nothing more for us to talk about stranger.
