Have you ever had fandom make you dislike a character? I feel like In getting to that point with Tim. Every other story with him is JayTim or woobie Tim or Tim has been so abused and look how bad the family is for not taking care of him etc. I mean you obviously cant dictate what people write but damn it I dont know how promote better Tim things without avoiding him entirely.
I got halfway through the first sentence of this and Tim’s name was flashing in front of my eyes, tbh.
He’s never been my favorite but fanon!Tim is a creature that I actively sacrifice goats to keep far away from me. And I always laugh when it gets brought up because there are different extremes of fanon!Tim and always, without fail, one side believes their fanon!Tim is correct canon characterization and bemoan the other side’s Tim and I’m sitting in the middle going ‘it’s the children who are wrong’.
