I think I understand what fridging is just fine. I simply do not agree that every instance of something bad happening to a female character within the context of a super hero story constitutes fridging.
I absolutely agree with this. It’s like the tendency to say every Original Character MUST be a Mary Sue.
I’ve never liked how some people have taken fridging to such lengths that you can’t do ANYthing to a female character, else you get called out for it. And it can frequently just be an emotional reaction to being a fan of said characters.
There IS a fine line between bad things happening to characters, and actual fridging, and that mileage is going to vary for everyone, but sometimes it’s just an overreaction.
And I’m doing a terrible job of explaining my thoughts, and have begun rambling, so shutting up now. >.<
Sometimes you get Whedon on Astonishing X-Men where he makes Kitty Pryde’s life a living hell, putting her through the ringer. Why? Cause its a fave character of his! Why would he do THAT then? To show what she can withstand, what she can endure. It may seem backwards to not just celebrate what it is but only by striving to do something like that did he feel he was doing something worthy of the character.
I did the same thing in a Sailor Moon fanfic with Sailor Jupiter before I even realized the concept of this! I knew the character SO well, and knew the ins and outs of what their limits were, which made writing that that much easier and still feel ‘right’.
The accuracy is overwhelming.
sign me the fuck up for this
oH MY GOD
Why no I’m not buying this why do you ask
stop looking at me that way
I, I can’t even deny I’ll be getting this.
It’s time to pause, rewind and remember the videos, people and events that defined YouTube in 2013.
While reliving all those youtube moments from 2013, see if you can spot the familiar faces from MyDomain on LookTV, one of our projects from the year.
I’m always impressed by their ability to combine multiple genres and everything into something like this. Well done.
Yes, we’re just over $19,000, our main funding goal, witth another 36 hours to go.
This is stoked-making here. Of course, I’ll feel better with a litlte buffer in case of unforseeen issues, but… this is looking good, folks.
