See, the point of the last post was commenting on the fact that it’s impossible to be in the dragon age fandom without pretending to love Anders even though he is, in my opinion, the worst. Whenever someone, say, gently mentions that they don’t like him, they receive hate messages. Like this one.
Shockingly not everyone agrees about a character that was literally written to be divisive. After searching in vain through a tag that is meant to CATEGORIZE POSTS for someone else who has anything critical to say about him, I was like “wow, being in this fandom is really hard if you don’t like Anders, maybe I’ll put something on my personal blog to that effect and someone else who feels the same way might find it”. But no. Apparently categorizing critiques about characters is forbidden.
I was actually trying to be nice about my statement of dislike. Sorry next time I’ll use the correct tags and show everyone how I actually feel about this character who is so untouchable that when i posted something saying that i might not love him, I received 7 anon hate messages.
