So how long are we gonna keep pretending Gladio is the only one of the bros with character flaws? Or are we too invested in the “pure and precious son that must be protected” narrative for the other three?
Wow, guys, I reached 100 followers!!! I don’t know what to say, I am absolutely honoured that 100 of you decided that I was worth the follow. I’d like to thank each and every one of you for making this possible, I love you all so, so much <3
To celebrate, I have decided to do some blogrates!
Over the past year, negativity and shitty discourse has kind of ruined people’s experiences. I didn’t get involved in writing fanfic to engage in purity posturing over the most morally defensible way to create and interact with fan-made content. Critique of tropes, common and harmful narratives, and reflections of structural imbalances in our content is one thing. But I don’t want to burn down my home to prove its foundation is flawless.
Fandom is supposed to be fun. If you’re not interested in having fun, then go do something else.
