idk if this is controversial or not, but I really like when non-professional writing like fic has hints of author bleedthrough when it comes to like, what different people assume is common knowledge. Like sometimes I’ll be reading a fic and it’ll just be obvious that the person writing it is either obsessed with medicine or has been to medical school, because they’ll use terms that are just a shade too technical without explaining them. It’s never the super specific stuff that they’d know other people are unaware of, it’s always the things that once you’ve known it for a while you forget it’s niche knowledge. It’s fun because as a fanfic reader it reminds me of how this is a fun hobby community, where everyone has their own thing going on outside of fandom. Everyone’s got their own specialties and they can’t help but write that into their work sometimes

Grunkle Stan is a heartfelt character with a ton of love and care poured into his creation but you look me in the eye and tell me Alex Hirsch intended for even a SECOND for the fandom to GILFify him the way they did.
BONES sexifying Reigen felt almost like a desperate attempt to add a single iota of sex appeal to the anime (because mp100, king shit, wasn't sexualizing its kids and this is anime after all) and gave the task to some female animators who have, in interviews, talked about the lengths they went to to make this happen--from the precise manner of smoking a cigarette to the "lick from the ass" comment which I have too much dignity to look up. And it was a slam dunk because this sweaty ugly loser-ass pathetic ugly (ugly) motherfucker broke con-artist with no friends and ONE kid he cares about was practically giftwrapped for this role.
I am only on the periphery of the Disco Elysium fandom but I've SEEN your main characters I KNOW what you've done to them and. Valid.
It's interesting to me that marketing teams still have not realized the right way to cater to a female fanbase. Like I've been mucking around fandom for 10+ years and I see it time and time and time again ALL you have to do is take the ugliest fucking pathetic old man in existence and put him in a Situation.

It's even funnier because I think every single time I've witnessed this happen it was an accident on the creator's part. I don't think any of them made their pathetic old man to be a sex icon I think they all said 'this plot could use a pathetic old man' and tossed him into the pool and could do nothing but watch as their pathetic old man got ripped asunder.

Hey I’m catching up on Abot (feels like I’m always 2-3 chaos behind bc I seem to miss the updates despite being subscribed? I’m catching up tho !!)
And like like I wanted to compliment how you manage to make a psychological horror story so embued with -hope- like the whole story is built on hope and it says not just to the chars, but to the audience, that you can break awful cycles, you can choose to be kind to yourself, you deserve happiness and to be treated with respect, and if someone isn’t treating you right it is a heroic thing to tell them that - and all these things, these choices and decisions and actions, they aren’t easy. Often they’re super hard, and the story recognizes that - but it’s worth it to try, I feel it’s saying, again and again, to the chars and the audience. Even if you only do a little, or you quit, or you fail, isn’t it worth it to try?
Where I’m at reading Mob remembers happiness from staying with Reigen and uses that to decide something for himself despite Mogami, and Teru just reminded Ritsu that he had decided he doesn’t want to die.
And it’s just so - it’s like the story reached through the screen and grabbed my soul, and gently planted hope and kindness there, just in case I needed it. And even as the story has really dark things happening, it’s done so well that a light shines and help those seeds grow.
(ABoT)
Ahhhh!!! (❁´◡`❁)
This makes me really happy to read! I really think it hits on the heart of the story. ABoT is rife with The Horrors but it's not a story about The Horrors. It's a story about a bunch of people who've been messed up by The Horrors who are fighting and clawing toward the realization of "Actually, I deserved better. Actually I want to be better." -- filled with all the stumbling and backwards-sliding and self-lying-to and broken mindsets and waffling and confusion that I feel comes with trying to really, meaningfully change yourself from a rotted-in mindset.
And it's nice to finally be getting through to the part of the narrative where these things are meaningfully sticking. Even with some things at their gloomiest, it's with a cast of characters who (mostly) all get that they want to be better, and that they deserve better.
I really don't think I'd be able to write such a long fic if it was just about The Horrors. I can because it's really a fic about The Hope. I'm glad that's shined through and meant something to you.

it’s always “your redemption is something you have to work towards for the rest of your life” and never “how was the unhinged spiral into evil? the unhinged spiral into evil looked fun”

I love you characters who are bad people, I love you characters that make me think, I love you characters that represent what happens to a person if they make bad choices, I love you characters that make me scared, I love you characters who take out their problems on other people, I love you characters that dont get redeemed, I love seeing the dark side of the human condition
