What Bothers You More In Fiction?
Posted 2/27/16
What bothers you more? A charcter without a a "relevant" flaw like Tatsuya Shiba From Irregular At Magic High School or an author or fans acting as if the character doesn't have a flaw, such as Twilight generously ignoring Edward Cullen's abusive behavior as being romantic or misunderstood?

Can I get a none of the above option. If either one is present I am not reading or watching the subject matter in question so thus it does not bother me in the slightest.

Hmm....... well characters that don't have flaws to me are actually more opened to a newly discovered weakness. So let's just say if you are introduced to the character and world, and nothing seems to even remotely phase or give that character any sort of give, or weakness, but then later on another character completely exposes that character and provides a weakness for him/her. Balanced character based on power. Emiya Kiritsugu. Alter time, either increase his speed or have the ability to slow it down or lower his heart rate, but in doing so it physically drains his body very fast so he must only use it at crucial points in battle. Unbalanced character, bell cranel. Basically has to do fuck all and he gets stronger and stronger with no actual weakness other than being a pretty bad fighter. So really it matters about what kind of story the author wants to tell. So I really don't have a problem with it that much, unless the story calls for some actual balance.

I think the big problem would be ignoring a flaw to be something misunderstood by author and fans. It just seems like a pretty childish thing to do. So I guess that would be the one.

I have to go with the second one. Twilight makes me sick.

I don't know why, but every word being capitalized makes me uncomfortable and strangely angry.
