Just a little reminder that this is the same man that half the fandom hates and makes fun of on a daily basis. You were skeptical and annoyed by his bad attitude and sarcasm and kept complaining about how annoying he is and how he constantly keeps talking about how he hates the nobles. This is the man that kept it real from the very first moment that he met mc. A lot of you were not interested in him as a character and declared that pixelberry failed at creating a bad boy with the heart of gold, in return they created an asshole.
This is the very same man that despite his attempts at trying to seem like he doesn’t care about Mc- remained loyal to her for the entire duration of the book. Drake wasn’t paranoid or an asshole for complaining about the nobles and trying to warn mc. He was right. Mc doesn’t know any of them like he does. I mean look at it this way?? The brothers Beaumont are obviously shady af and Maxwell Beaumont might have knocked up Drake’s sister?? Olivia’s parents were apparently traitors and people think they died from a political assassination which is obviously made up?? Madeline keeps coming back trying to become Queen, first Leo now Liam, which means that she is obviously close to the Royal family and maybe the Queen decided even before the coronation that madeline will become Queen?? I mean based on this, MC DOESN’T KNOW THOSE PEOPLE AT ALL. Drake was just looking out for her, trying to warn her and keep her safe. He didn’t want the nobles to hurt her or drive her away like they did to Savannah. He obviously cares about her and has her best interest in his mind and heart. Throughout the whole book, he was trying to make mc realise that although this place looks shiny and wonderful full of sparkly dresses and rich nobles- this place breaks people. Not everything is as it seems. This place is full of toxic people and deadly secrets. He was the one that barged into Mc’s room while she was sexually assaulted by Tariq. When he entered that room he wasn’t sure what to expect, but he entered that room with the intention to protect Mc and keep her safe. He was the one that discovered Mc had no lock on the door!! He and Hana were the ones that were pushing through the guards trying to get to Mc when shit hit the fan during the coronation. At this point, he is the only genuine person close to mc. Not even Hana, her family is shady and the messanger is suspicious.
My boy kept it real and honest from the very beginning.

i find it hilarious that i thought this fandom was good a few months ago. are you kidding me?
the fact that people think it’s okay to become antis of characters astounds me. what the fuck is wrong with you guys? you aren’t being forced to love a character, but making a blog dedicated to the hatred of characters actual people made and love with all of their heart?
it’s different when you hate on ships, when you talk about how much you wish a person wasn’t a love interest, or even was. that’s so different. in fact, differences of opinion are so so so so important. however, @playchoices made these characters.
they fucking love these characters. they’re love interests for a reason. they mean the world to a lot of people in the fandom as well. it’s in poor taste to make, for example, hate blogs in dedication to drake. i don’t give a crap if you don’t like drake.
i’m going to state my point again, and i know it’s redundant at this point, but seriously: these characters are made by the people you support and you throw it in their faces acting as if they made a bad one. do you even know the toxicity you are throwing into the fandom?
i don’t care if it’s a joke, or if you’re just that adamant about hating the character, or the art, or the book. if you hate rules of engagement, or if you love endless summer to death. at least have the decency to respect the people who made the books, characters, art, or storyline.
the only toxicity that comes from choices is the fandom that comes with the game. the bigger it grows, the nastier people get, and i am overwhelmed. when i first started playing this game, there was no fandom.
then, all of a sudden, blogs started popping up left and right, and i was ecstatic because people loved these books just as much as i did and that was amazing. i was excited to have a place to talk about choices. now? i feel as if i have to hold in every single opinion i have because someone is going to lash out at me, or worse, someone else.
