Me: That character is okay, you know? I’m not emotionally invested in them or anything. I don’t think other people like them, but I’m okay with them.
Other people: THAT CHARACTER IS EVIL!!!!!! THEY ARE THE WORST CHARACTER IN THE WHOLE SERIES!!!!!! WE’RE GOING TO WRITE DOZENS OF FANFICS VILLAINIZING THEM!!!!! THEY ARE EVIL!!!!!
Me: *begins to like the character and love them and believe they deserved better, in defiance of the unnecessary, over the top hatred towards their character by the fandom*
