endearing character trait

anonymous asked:

No offense but gladio reminds me of a power fantasy for white men and is a complete asshole. I had a hard time really liking him.

It’s fine if that’s your opinion, but I think overall I personally liked him. My issue with him was that it seemed like the writers were more concerned with keeping him macho and manly feeling than making sure he was a consistent character. Like, getting in your face and yelling at you to get your princely shit together, then dipping out for a little solo mission action for an entire chapter of the game? What the hell! And a lot of his lines didn’t feel like writers going, “Hey, what would Gladio, the character, say about this?” and were a lot more “What would a tough character say here?” One of his most endearing character traits is his love of cup fucking noodles, but even that was kinda just there for product placement that fell to him by process of elimination, like “We need one of the boys to promote this product…Ignis would never admit to liking prepackaged, sodium-bomb food like that…it’d be too obvious to pick Noctis or Prompto to be the one who loved it…so who does that leave? Gladio.” At the end of the game, I felt really close to Noctis and Ignis after seeing all that they had suffered and lost along the way of this quest, and Prompto was always really open and let us see his struggles and fears so it felt like we really got to know him. And then it’s just like…Gladio, that crazy son of a gun. He loved him some cup noodles and talkin all deep. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

(that’s a bit hyperbolic and I did really generally find him likable enough as a character, but I’m trying to level with you here, lol)

I've seen your ranking, and I wonder why you like Juzo so much ? I can't help but think his redemption doesn't outweight his previous actions. He helped stopping the killing game but that was him fixing something he did and saving someone he cared about, which isn't selflessness. He assaulted people for reasons that were petty or unjustified, so it felt really forced when he saved Naegi. Also, he let Junko end the world because he didn't want Munakata to know he was gay ? Please enlighten me.

Personally, I like Juzo because he’s not supposed to be a selfless or a sweet or softhearted character. If Juzo had stopped the killing game for any of those kinds of reasons, or if dr3 had suddenly tried to play Juzo off as a character who was entirely selfless for everyone’s sake, I’d have been incredibly disappointed. But as it is, Juzo’s character development was one of the few things dr3 managed to do right.

Juzo scores #3 on my personal character ranking because he’s an incredibly well-written and flawed character who is given his own autonomy and has a compelling arc of development. He’s also pretty much the embodiment of the Undying Loyalty trope, something I like in my characters—and even better is that dr3 managed to emphasize that that’s his strength and his weakness at the same time.

so ive seen the lego batman movie twice now and ive gotta say, i am such a fan of how they portrayed the joker???

like ive never really been a batman fan or anything, but there was a brief time period a few months ago where I was super into batman lore??? And of course the Joker was like. the most interesting thing to me, but only like…. a certain type of Joker

with all these new edgy batmans (in comics and movies alike), there’ve been edgy jokers; bloodthirsty jokers, heartless jokers, abusive jokers (which is sometimes treated like an endearing character trait which is >:///) and everything in between. But the Jokers that I particularly loved were the goofy Jokers, the ones who never took anything seriously, who were creepy but ultimately just trying to get a laugh out of people, funny and lighthearted and had a pseudo-crush on Batman

And this lego batman Joker is like????? Everything I’ve ever dreamed of and more????

idk if you dont like the joker for any number of reasons then I certainly cant blame you; I just really liked this Joker and i hope there are more light hearted jokers in the future

if youre feeling like a big awkward fuck up who messes up everything just think about how if u were a character in a work of fiction sooo many people would see your perceived flaws as lovable and endearing character traits and how youd still be their favorite character to draw coffeeshop AUs of regardless

do you guys ever sit there and just remember the fact that tooru and hajime are  best friends like. furudate sat there was like, hmm yes, let’s make these two childhood best friends. because i think about this all the time. 

gilver-tblr  asked:

Greg's sunburn definitely has something to do with Steven's birth right? I mean he's gotten sunburn before and it faded but why does he have it all the time now? What do you guys think?

Skin cancer.

We kid, but it’s probably just an endearing character trait. Maybe it will, but time will tell!

As an artist who respects creative integrity and intellectual property, I am disgusted by how much you have copied my endearing character traits. Do you not have any value or respect for originality? You’re a laughingstock. It’s cheesy. It’s disgusting. I personally found it absolutely artistically atrocious. I am embarrassed to be sitting here in your presence having to even dignify you with an answer of my opinion.

constantly falling asleep with my glasses on: endearing character trait? bad habit that is dangerous and especially bad and needs to be broken? a mixture of both? we’ll find out after the break. hopefully “the break” does not refer directly to my glasses breaking
