.... Oh, memories.

I'm sure you can think of something. ;)

The irony, she is sweet.

But yeah, I'm sure you'll think of something to do with it.

I'm going to start by uploading my fanfics, then a forum, then I don't know what.

All I know is I want to freedom to call Char an A-hole without mods getting butthurt.
Apr. 29th, 2011 12:51 am (UTC)
Why not? I hate Char Aznable, electorprince hates Char Aznable and I'm sure there are lots more out there.

I remember at the original place I did so and promptly got a PM of tl;dr bs notifying that my post had been edited and we can't say things like that on this forum hurr. Even though I seem to remember them being okay with people saying similar things about Ghinius and the like, hmmmm...

God the downfall and decay of Gundamwatch was such a sad, special little thing to bear witness to.

Well, the past is history. Always move forward.

Oh, I got PMs constantly. If I didn't get one a week for some elitist post I'd made, I considered the mods to be slacking.

Char Aznable is a shitburglar and an asshole. It is known. While I confess I'll always defend Char over any and all of his AU masked clones, in the UCverse he's a thin-rolled tube of treacherous shit that a better man needed to have cloven in twain with a heat hawk long before he ran afoul of Lalah Sun.

He is the epitome of the Penny Arcade "chuwero", a being that both eats and fucks shit. That's Char.

Yes, yes. Granted if you switched out Char's name for Ghinius I get the feeling it'd be a-okay with GW. I know Ghinius is far from everyone's cup of tea, but the instant someone who hates him for his actions opens their mouth to praise Char Aznable they loose all right to saying words on that subject. Say what you will that's one of the most obnoxious, blatant double standards I run across in our fandom.

Apr. 29th, 2011 09:25 am (UTC)
Ghinius' flaws I can pass off to his latent insanity, though I also question the judgment of his superiors and coworkers as to how no one noticed him slipping when it seemed pretty obvious he was losing it; Char Aznable was very sane, and that makes his sins far more deserving of contempt because it was premeditated. But yes, the entirely of Gundam is rife with double standards, it's just a matter of having enough ammo to back up whatever side you opt to defend in spite of whatever elitist git decides to take issue with it. Mods, unfortunately, have their own biases too.

But some of us like him because he's an asshole...

If you think he's a good guy I have to question if we watched the same show, but if you think he's seriously a weak character I have the same question. A character doesn't have to be nice/moral/good to be a good character!
Apr. 29th, 2011 02:18 pm (UTC)
Oh, I have no problem with people liking Char because he's a deep complex character. He is, very much. I just take issue with those who think he's a righteous, noble anti-hero and that his victims deserved what he did to him. Basically the fanboys who treat him as a Draco in Leather Pants.

Lord only knows I loves me some fucked up characters (Ghinius, looking at you), but I'm not going to deny what they are or pretend they did nothing wrong and should be looked up to.
Apr. 29th, 2011 02:21 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, I am pretty much "thissss"-ing to every word you said, so I think we're in agreement there. If anything, the "he's a righteous, noble anti-hero and that his victims deserved what he did to him" are more annoying because, um, way to miss the point. To me that's a lot less interesting than who he actually is, so I don't know why they want to make him boring if they like him so much. =P

I come to you live from the Saw fandom, though, and your choices there for favorite characters are pretty much limited to "evil" and "really evil." I'm used to the "bad person =/= bad character" discussion, and the irrational {character} apologists who are part of the problem.

I'd best be getting an invite when the site goes up.
Apr. 29th, 2011 04:55 am (UTC)
Wait, what? How could you ever remotely imagine I wouldn't invite you? You wound me, darling!
