being criticized

I get being critical.I really do. You shouldn’t overlook flaws just because you like something.

But tumblr’s idea of being “Critical” is the same thing as tumblr’s idea of everything else; Going way past the point of being reasonable and just devolving into being petty, whiny, nitpicky, egotistical and pretty much being so goddamn rude that even when you make valid points nobody’s gonna listen because you’re an insufferable asshole.

When I got to the age where I started questioning the reality of Santa, my parents told me that if I didn’t believe in him, he definitely wouldn’t bring me any Christmas presents.

The keep the faith mantra really reminds me of this.

While as viewers we may or may not get our gifts (representation, screen time, a pink pony) in the end, me believing we will really isn’t what will make the difference.

Publicly critiquing and giving honest feedback, on the other hand, just might. If not with this ship, maybe a different one, another Christmas, another year.

An episode where Pearl meets someone who acts like her could be interesting. Like they use their frail appearance and sad back story to get what they want from people or to stop people from critisizing them. Someone who won’t get over that one crush who moved on.

And at the end Pearl is getting sick of listening to them and either Steven or Amethyst goes ‘But pearl, don’t you do the same thing?’

And Pearl just has a big moment of self realization of what’s she’s done over the years. Her obsession with Rose and behavior against Greg.

It could end with the gems chasing the person away because now everyone’s just annoyed at them, and Pearl just kinda… thinks in the house and doesn’t do anything for a few days/episode because she’s still thinking.

And she starts being more observant when she starts doing her pity stuff and feels angry over Rose, she becomes more hesitant and really starts to think things over.

You know, character stuff that takes a long time to do.

one thing that annoys me with su negativity (negativity. hate isn't the same as being critical of media) is how its so uniquely petty. i went into other tags: "gravity falls critical", "atla critical", "svtfoe critical" and there was NOTHING. you can't pretend you're this objective genius of media criticism if you ONLY hate one show. and certainly not if you watch others, but don't call out flaws. they have no right to call themselves media critics if they only focus on what they hate in 1 show

i hate how people are twisting things and act like Chloe Bennet’s being critical of Skyeward in public is something new. She has done this multiple times. staring with when she said she had to look out for Skye and wouldn’t want her to date a murderer (she said this during season 2 of the show). She has called her murderer and Nazi before. She has defended Daisy from criticism that was mostly born from Skyeward shippers. She has publicly dragged Wardstans in cons. She has mocked Skyeward “discourse” during the AoS instagram takeover.

She hasn’t suddenly changed her mind or changed her tune. She has been telling you “Skyeward is bad and I don’t want it for Daisy” for years. You were just ignoring her because you were too busy fantasizing with everybody supporting your disgusting Nazi-apologizing racist pro-abuse ship.

Citrus and Netsuzou trap anime are coming

the premise for netsuzou sounds a bit plain but I’m hoping it’s gonna be deeper than just kiss kiss fall in love

I’m already expecting pure disappointment from citrus

We went from izetta and flip flappers to “I wanna fuck my sister” and “I wanna fuck my friend” but idk maybe I’m being too critical

IMO it seems like seymour uses the excuse of “Being A Baby” or “Being Just Four” to brush off any critiques of his behavior. Minors on this site aren’t exempt from criticism or being called out. I don’t know why everyone puts up with his shit.

But seriously, why is Steven like…..literally shrinking.. like just look:

(Season 1, Episode 6, “Cat Fingers” ) 

VS.  (From Season 4, Episode 19 “Tiger Philanthropist”)

Steven is significantly shorter, barely being taller than the counter. His head and hair are way bigger and his legs are shorter. His whole body just looks compressed to be honest….yikes 

hey, remember when lars:
  • obviously had social anxiety issues and desperately wanted the cool kids to accept him and to fit in
  • didn’t exactly get along on the best of terms with steven, but still wasn’t a complete asshole to him (was visibly apologetic when he made steven angry for insulting his mom, smiled and returned the chest high-five steven gave him)
  • was, as a kid in the flashback in horror club, shown as kind towards ronaldo and accidentally, not on purpose, tore his picture apart due to his major self-esteem issues
  • actually attempted to credit steven for saving the cool kids from rose’s moss despite the fact that he could have taken all the credit due to his desire to be accepted and thought of highly by the cool kids
  • was shown having hidden talents, such as cooking
  • got genuinely concerned over spilling coffee on garnet in the episode future vision and asked if she was okay

had a jerkish, standoffish personality but obviously had many self-esteem related issues underneath it all that could have potentially been fleshed out and allow him to grow to become a wiser, well-rounded character and realize that it’s okay to be yourself? i miss that lars

Knowing that rooster teeth always planned to kill off Pyrrha like this just makes all the time they wasted focusing on Jaune all the more irritating tbh.

Like, who is Pyrrha to Nora and Ren? What kind of relationship did she have with them? What did they talk about when they hung out, what did they have in common, or disagree on? Did she get along better with Nora then Ren, or vice versa? We don’t know. We don’t know because Pyrrha never has a single scene of just interacting with her teammates who aren’t named Jaune Arc. 

Instead of wasting screentime on Jaune being bullied or Jaune ignoring Weiss’ consent, they should have fleshed out Pyrrha over the last two volumes. Shown us how she got along with everyone, not just her other two teammates, but also Ruby! Ruby is the one who is there to witness her death, whose emotional reaction to it triggers her hidden power. Pyrrha’s relationship with Ruby should have been very fleshed out to give that moment maximum impact. 

What kind of relationship did Pyrrha and Ruby have? What did Ruby think of her? They were friends, i guess? They seemed to get along ok when their teams hung out? We don’t have a single scene of the two of them interacting one on one, just talking, something that really would have helped us feel for Ruby when she watched Pyrrha die.

Make Pyrrha a really developed character, Instead of basically a prop for Jaune. Even in her death, of her team, only Jaune’s sadness is shown. We don’t see Nora or Ren grieve. We don’t see how they feel about this besides being willing to journey with Ruby and Jaune to get some answers. 

In the end, when Jaune is Pyrrha’s only fleshed out relationship, it feels like she was just a prop for Jaune’s hero journey. Even if they always planned to kill her they could have set it up and done it in a way that doesn’t feel like the writers are just setting up for yet another Jaune story arc (this time with manpain!) in volume 4.

i hate how being bioware critical apparently means u dont love the games they put out like … shut up, bioware fucks up constantly, bioware has done things so bad they make me feel sick ranging from the way they write characters to the way they design women to the disgusting things bioware staff have said on social media —

but i love bioware’s games? i love them. nowhere is more home for me than in  thedas, sitting around the campfire with zevran and morrigan or running around skyhold and kirkwall. i adore, so much, running around every version of the normandy, getting lost in the citadel, every beat of the romance with garrus, everything about miranda lawson’s character and being scared shitless of collectors

that doesn’t mean i have to sit back and praise them and to be honest i’m getting tired of the fact i feel like i have to quantify “this bioware thing is bad” with “but i love it/this game anyway” like stop being so self absorbed that you can’t see any reason why anyone would criticise this stuff

and yea im talking about criticism, not randomised hate, yet another distinction i can’t believe i have to make because theres always one asshole who comes out saying “[x] isnt criticism tho” like fucker do i look like im talking about that

ive been wanting to draw ‘season two’ clothes and outfits designs of vm but also thats so many things to draw so heres this for now lmao
