>lesbian yaoi just looks like a lot of modern BL art styles, nothing really lesbian specifically about it (women generally don’t let their coom habits effect their art like moids granted, so there’s less of a difference of art between straight, bi and lesbian women).
>gay men yaoi is just regular barashit

No. 301179

at this point they have to be delusional. gay men like bara for a reason, they are moids after all therefore they have moid fetishes and like hairy chests, pot bellies and smelly armpits. the same way straight moids like massive melon tits, ahegao and art with fucked up anatomy. but this is something the average woman finds disgusting! there are rare cases where bara can look okay, but pic related is gross imo. i have nothing against women who like bara, but it's a fact that for most of us is a turn off and something we have to be brainwashed to like
everyone having different tastes is whatever, the problem arises when people mock and make fun of female interests and put male interests on a pedestal. twinks are bad because women love them and moids hate them. bara is good because moids love it

I like how the story played out, but I think there were definitely avenues I wish Hussie would've explored. Feferi, supposed ruler-to-be of Alternia, gets zilch in the plot? Additionally, had she not charged at Eridan and instead ran away, there would've been easy stories for both the characters. I don't even know what to do with Nepeta. Etc, etc.

Also, I loathe the sausage lips (picrel).

I think I'm gonna read Homestuck all over again. It has been 8 years since I found it, and I never got to finish it because I stopped keeping up with the updates.
I don't know if I have talked about this already (if I did I'm sorry for being retarded), but sometimes I randomly think about how well developed the Classpect system was and it makes me think that maybe Hussie had ghostwriters since the beggining? (Also, the Quadrants!! Such an interesting concept, I know it was probably a parody of "shipping culture" but idk, pretty original!)
I also always think about how there was a perfect 50/50 ratio of female and male characters for a Western comic. To me it never felt weird how the female characters were treated, (I'm talking about the part before the dancestors, obviously) they were allowed to be ruthless, murderous, intelligent, cunning or even walking disasters, just like the male characters. How can a moid come up with that… and of all them, ANDREW HUSSIE? Sure, you could say there are some male authors out there that have done interesting pieces of fiction, but all of them always end up thinking with their dicks, either putting the female characters in secondary roles or turning them into their "perfect uwu waifus". Or if they write them as villains or anti-heros, they use them as shitty commentary about how a "perfect woman" should be.
For me, it's like Hussie's personality/attitude didn't fit with the webcomic and its characters.
I kinda believe he did have ghostwriters that helped him with certain things, like maybe the Classpect/Quadrant system, and when it came to writing certain characters. Thougths on this? As I said, it has been 8 years since I last read this, I was 15-16, so my perception of the characters and the story might be distorted.
(I also never searched MSPA forums, so I don't know if maybe the people that interacted with the webcomic there played a big part on how the webcomic was created.)

File: 1686239389449.png (842.91 KB, 850x850, sample_72b18f7698ee094ab9d14bd…)

There was tinfoil about ghostwriters, particularly towards the end of the comic, but as far as I can tell, Hussie wrote it himself. I think he just payed really close attention to the fandom, particularly the MSPA forums and Tumblr, and I think the feedback helped him with certain ideas. For instance, fans named the beta kids and the original twelve trolls. Also, there is stuff that he's said outright was ghostwritten (the epilogues) and there's a noticable drop in quality. I think he's a genuinely talented guy who just got burnout and irony poisoning.

In any case, if you're re-reading, use the unofficial Homestuck collection (it preserved the things that were broken when flash support ended) and do not read the epilogues. They're a complete waste of time and they're not even "canon."

needed some way to vent about this, and i always love reading about other people's raging hate boners for (insert x title here). this isn't limited to books alone - it can be a show, comic, webcomic, etc. as long as it has your blood boiling almost every time you see it and you can't begin to imagine how anyone could get into it.

i'll start us off: "a matter of life and death" (https://tapas.io/series/A-Matter-of-Life-and-Death) is kind of the brainless beauty of western BL. now, it didn't start off that way, but between the author deciding to start acting like a spoiled brat instead of taking responsibility for her growing fanbase during the past year, and the story itself taking an olympic nosedive into overwrought, melodramatic, needlessly vindictive (while somehow still failing to deliver all the emotional punches during actually appropriate scenes), everything-that-makes-BL-shit territory.

now, as a disclaimer, i will admit that i'm not a fan of BL in general. i've seen way too many works that portray stuff like rape, abuse, etc. way too voyeuristically for my comfort, and even in more lighthearted series it usually feels like the authors don't know how guys interact with other people, let alone how gay guys do it. it's just not for me. but for fuck's sake, even i can recognize that BL fans deserve better than this.

That's interesting, I didn't know that. Translators are kind of notorious for that. The story in Endwalker with the bird of despair was pretty standard 2deep4u anime clusterfuck, not sure how much of it can be blamed on the translators. Got any examples?

No. 301141

I don't have a lot of examples right now, I was at my friend's place and she showed me a bunch of cutscenes in Japanese, French and English. Then she told me there was no Spanish localization which… wtf? It was long ago when FE3H got released because we were sperging over Fire Emblem localizations at the same time and she showed me that FF14's was even worse but only in English. She showed me a cutscene of a pretty, cutesy small fairy introducing herself to other characters and in Japanese she talked normally and had a youthful, high voice. Same in French, with an accurate translation. Then in English she sounded like a Scottish chain smoking woman in her 50s and was yelling some completely unrelated text, my ears were not ready for that kek. Then there was something about a character who wrote a poem or said it out loud and the text in English was so unrelated it looked like the localizers gave no fuck. But I don't remember the details on that one.

What's weird is that usually with JRPGs we have translations based on American or maybe British localizations so if these ones are bad, the French one will have the same issue. So I guess Square Enix stopped doing that long ago? Unlike Nintendo.

>I pointed out the glaring issues with endwalker and everyone around me shouted me down

You need to tell me what's the problem because I don't play thag game and I'm very curious. You can spoil everything if you want. It's a FF game so I except some edgy anime shiy going on but that's what I liked about the retro FF games tbh.

No. 301182

Alright, you're a long way off from experiencing the whole thing. This is also covering one base game and four expansions and ten years now so it spans a while. Overall, the FFXIV story from ARR-Shadowbringers the story is completely serviceable. It's cool, government intrigue, FF style big evil empire. I liked how grounded the story was compared to other FF games sometimes. Filler obviously like any MMO story , but if you like FF games you can definitely give it a go, the majority of the playerbase resubs for the story and unsubs for the rest of it (raiders are like less than 5% of the playerbase). I am mostly bitching about Endwalker because it was hyped so much. Spoilers after this so you have been warned.

For one thing, an enemy that was built up as this serious antagonist was just kind of dealt with very early on in the first trial of the xpac. My main problem was a shoehorned villain that was introduced 2/3 of the way through the expansion ("foreshadowed" by 'there was a sound and then the world ended'. Yes that was their explanation.) Especially coming after Shadowbringers, the strongest expac, it just felt so weak. I didn't care about the villain at all and 'the true villain was despair haha get it cause we all play MMOs were all depressed' fell so flat. Such 2deep4u garbage I am sorry read Dostoevsky or something. The praising of that aspect especially made me think people who play this game just don't read. The secondary antagonist was just kind of there, there was a cool body swap duty but they did nothing with it.

>the reason why hermes/fando become sad is that the bird went to space and got sad and then it came back and told hermes it was sad and that made hermes want to kill everyone

(^how my friend summarised the villain)

Shadowbringers was a self contained story that wrapped everything up beautifully, had a villain you could sympathise with but had to fight against. He was basically just like you except on opposite sides. Endwalker was two expansions in one basically. Garlemald went from being in a stalemate with the alliance to a burned out refugee camp in two weeks. There was so much fanservice, bringing back a villain who got a perfect send off (Emet) and a villain who has a lot of fans here but I personally can't stand back for the fourth fucking time (Zenos).

I was about to point this out. I get annoyed whenever the argument about Ancient Egyptians'/Pharaohs' races pops up, because Egypt was basically the melting pot of the ancient world due to its geographic location. Dynasties came and went in much the same way they did in China, but due to Egypt's relative diversity, you have dynasties of a variety of ethnicities. On opposite extremes, you had Nubian dynasties, and you had Greek ones. I'm not going to pigeonhole ancient peoples into modern racial archetypes, but just look at Cleopatra VII's (the one people typically mean when they just say "Cleopatra") portrait bust. Looks like a Greek woman to me.

tbh I can see both sides of the censorship argument when it comes to children's media, but in an adult movie from 1971 I think everyone watching it should have an understanding of why a slur is there and therefore the censorship is uneeded.
