The whole reason behind Tharja's outfit is fanservice, pure and simple. It doesn't fit her personality, I can see why it'd bother people. But some of us don't care about horny designers and Japanese fetish fuel and just want to appreciate her as a character, terrible flaws and all. Or we just think she's a kickass unit and couldn't care less if she covered from her forehead to her ankles.

but you can't simply enjoy things you like, anon

that's GASP having fun

that's not allowed in fandom!

(Anonymous) 2014-04-17 08:51 pm (UTC)(link)
yes, because it's impossible to like something and still criticize its flaws

good to know

People can criticise things they like without sounding more like haters than fans, you know. And if there's something many Awakening "fans" do is whine nonstop about every. single. thing. in it.

It's rather tiring, to be frank.

In this fandom, it is. I, personally, can count on one hand the number of fans I've met who can criticize Awakening without being incredibly elitist about it.

the less these people sound like entitled whiners or smug elitists, the better

sadly, that's not very common in ANY fandom

and also a response to the other two anons above

i know what you guys are talking about, but i was talking about the response to op in this thread, not the fandom as a whole.

I'll concede that maybe some anons did come down hard on the OP. But it's easy to be rubbed the wrong way by someone who posts about it in the fashion of long, drawn-out meta. :/ And, I might add, OP was pretty harsh on the anon who replied too, but no one's pointing THIS out.

(Anonymous) 2014-04-17 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
tbf, ayrt was more or less ignoring 95% of op's original response to them so i'm not going to blame op for being harsh here.

Re: and also a response to the other two anons above

(Anonymous) 2014-04-17 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
It...didn't look like they were? I think OP just accused them of "missing the point" because ayrt disagreed with them.

Re: and also a response to the other two anons above

(Anonymous) 2014-04-17 10:12 pm (UTC)(link)
that's... not what actually happened, anon. op said ayrt didn't address the points made in their original response to them and was trying to go onto a different argument entirely.

this is op's original response to ayrt: http://feanons.dreamwidth.org/1400.html?thread=1549688#cmt1549688

yes, it's tl;dr, but whether or not you agree with their argument isn't the point i'm trying to make here.

here is ayrt's response: http://feanons.dreamwidth.org/1400.html?thread=1554296#cmt1554296

here, they didn't actually address most of the points op made and instead latched onto one argument trying to defend their own (ayrt's) response on how people who dislike tharja 'are just jealous'.

not exactly going to blame op here for wanting to hear a response that actually addresses their response when they did the same for ayrt and then ducking out when it became pretty obvious when ayrt had no intention of actually addressing those points in op's first response.

got redundant in that last paragraph whoops

Re: and also a response to the other two anons above

(Anonymous) 2014-04-17 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
First of all, the comment about Fushigi Yuugi and Miaka was made by a whole different anon, not ayrt. Second of all, ayrt DID acknowledge that OP had a point but wanted to discuss their views of the whole thing. Even if the argument could have done without the "just jealous" business, they weren't being rude to OP.

All they did was disagree with OP, let's not act like they committed the crime of the century.

if you're talking about this response: http://feanons.dreamwidth.org/1400.html?thread=1547640#cmt1547640

then op did respond to that with their own views, but they never got an actual response to the post they made to ayrt. if ayrt did re-enter the conversation at some point, they never actually addressed any of the previous points made in op's first response to them.

All they did was disagree with OP, let's not act like they committed the crime of the century.

not saying they were, but i can understand why op would be frustrated.

Oh...well, I guess they have the right to be frustrated. But they seemed like they were making a federal case out of it, ayrt may have been too quick to whip out the "just jealous" chestnut but she wasn't outright accusing OP of it. Hell, I thought OP made some valid points too. I personally think the female dark mage outfit is hot but I do understand the frustration with the disconnect between it and Tharja's actual personality.

i... really don't think that particular comment was serious

never trust the eyes.gif, anon

you do have a point, actually! i've seen in many a fandom people accusing others of being a "hater" for criticizing any part of the canon despite being fans themselves, that i guess i missed the eyes.gif.
