Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

I heard about that backlash, but I never saw it. A lot of people were kind of enthused by it, however, simply because Asami and Korra developed a chemistry no one on the writing staff had anticipated. I think more people were sold on it than not. Even afterwards, while there were definitely people w...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Silvermoonlight speaks the truth. Take for example, merging Battle Angel Alita and Evangelion: these are two very different properties and settings, but you can merge the two together because they have some solid overlap with certain themes. The idea of what constitutes a human, the concept of self ...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Or, if you're going to make a batshit suggestion for a crossover, explain WHY the crossover would exist. Why would you crossover Evangelion with Fritz the Cat? Like, what about that crossover pops up in your mind as something that can be done? Give a reason for why, and if it boils down to, "I ...

Because they're just noise. And you know that: you said it yourself, you're just throwing stuff at the wall, because you don't know what else to say.

Life's too short for that. Why would anyone want to waste time on such frustrations? I can't remember who it was, but someone threw some Asuka/Rei stories my way: I don't ship the two of them, but the stories were cute, and funny. I can appreciate that! Or, you know...say a ship I prefer doesn't pan...

People take a weird...possessiveness of these characters, and any deviation from that possession is threatening. It's almost like they treat the characters as extensions of themselves, and any attack on that idealized concept of the character becomes a personal attack. The best example of that I can...

That must be it: I see Voltron and Stephen Universe fan-art, but it's usually not the focus of the artist's work (like, they're a member of the fandom, and they post their own fan-work, but they're primarily doing art somewhere else, so I'm only on the edge of all of it). I guess I just never got de...

Is it just the Eva fandom on Tumblr that does this? Everybody keeps talking about the toxic Tumblr atmosphere, and people on Tumblr talk about it, but I have never encountered it.

Are there certain fandoms that do this? I'm not asking sarcastic questions, I am genuinely confused by this.

Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

SSD: I have a very hard time going on Facebook these days, because it seems to have become the 'unfiltered, everyone gets to know what I think' place. Which is weird, because that's no pseudonyms (unless you're a bot). Everyone sees pictures, and names, and...there's no hiding that a person said wha...

US.

That sucks about your brother, but badass that he made it through! Jesus, how did he deglove his foot? I've heard of people marching the soles of their feet off (literally), but that's a new one!

Also, skin is all healed up, now: just tender and scarred. Back to running and rucking!

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

...you know...watching this Lindsay Ellis video-essay on the Phantom of the Opera...I am surprised I never saw parallels between that story, and Evangelion. The character of Eric, with his reclusive, possessive, and brilliant nature (it gets underplayed over his composer abilities, but he's also a b...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

The...emphasis on the connection between the three Pilots is kind of a cornerstone of Evangelion. Their failures to connect are what usually lead to their defeats.

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

You come off as belligerent, with a single-minded focus on a fictional character's negative traits in a way that can be very tiring.

Both of these kids are damaged, both of them failed to actually make a connection with each other. Asuka failed Shinji by being unable to express her affections or needs in a way that wasn't lay...
