Things you like and things you hate
Wed Aug 8, 2018 3:36pm

This thread is for sharing things you really, really like or things you really, really hate.

For example, I really like stories where the main character is about to lose. The villain has absolutely everything. There is nothing more that can be done. All hope is lost. Evil has triumphed... but then the main character uses the bonds of his friends or the power of love and compassion or some other virtuous strength and unlocks a power that they never knew they had or starts to finally use 100% of their power. They snap victory from the jaws of defeat at the critical moment. That's why I like it when a Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonist draws the exact card he needs to pull off some crazy combo that should not be possible, summon his Ultimate Super Evolved Boss of Justice with ∞^∞ ATK and win. Even if it's a Deus ex Machina, I don't care, it's just so satisfying.

That's why I absolutely hate 1984, even though I haven't read it. I can sympathize with the Sues who pretend to be rebels in that Verse. It's just... so... fixable...

I also hate Umbridge, Snape, and Malfoy (and by extension Sues that throw away all of their faults because he's so SAXAEY ECKS DEE) because they're extremely cruel and biased and just plain petty. I also hate anyone who falls under the same bully or power abuser archetypes as them or is just really petty.
