“Maybe I failed this time, but… I’m not giving up. I’ll show them I’ve got what it takes to make the hero course, and I’ll become a greater hero than all of you!” |
Happy Birthday to my lovely Aseel bby!
People on this site are just…disturbing when it comes to fiction in general. They literally want everything to be perfect, happy sunshine and roses (probably because so many of them are living vicariously through fiction as a substitute for reality, and thus can’t help projecting themselves into it). That’s just…not how fiction works. That’s the most boring shit–who honestly wants to read/watch that??? We NEED strife in fiction, as there is strife in reality. Characters NEED obstacles to overcome in order to have a character arc. A story NEEDS a conflict to actually be a story. If all you ever read is the kind of Mary Sue crap where everyone gets along, you’re going to be the most boring, sheltered motherfucker, and have no idea what to do when you get out into the real world.
Villains need to be allowed to be villains.
Characters need to be allowed to have bad things happen to them, even if they’re the “good guys”.
Fiction needs “bad” things, because it helps us recognize, understand, and cope with those “bad” things.
