It's more the issue that, consistently, almost every post Enkryption has made for Chuuni has received a comment like this. It's hard not to get the impression that its mean-spirited.


I really don't see what you see in this context.

If a Chuunitrix post impacts people that way... doesn't that mean Enkryption is doing a good job writing the character? Everyone loved to hate on Prince Geoffrey from GoT too when it started airing, but the actor that portrayed him nailed it imo.

I get a similar vibe from Chuuni, where she's a flawed, self-centered, and sometimes awful character that I like reading about precisely because Enkryption does a good job of making Chuuni believable and interesting.

It's not a dig at the writer, it's fan chatter.

I should probably chime in. I don't, honestly, know what I can and cannot say. But, I'll try...

TL;DR: Show, not tell. It's not an easy task as a writer, but there's a reason, if you remember that there should be one.

Let's just try to balance the focus of Chuunitrixx's posts, because I can see where everyone is coming from, but focusing on only the negative aspects and not the reasons behind them is only going to make them stand out negatively.

And, that, will only lead to infighting and dropouts.

Unrelated note:
I have some good news and bad news.

Bad news:

And I will be managing an active dumpster fire a new department.
Workload in the next few weeks is going to be really fucking intense, and I may need to drop from this RP. .-.

Good news:

@BurningDaisies

Congrats on the promotion! I doubt you’ll need to drop though, the RP has a fairly chill pace, but even if you do I’m sure something can be worked out. Regardless, I’ll pour one out for our homie moving up in the world.

I should also take a moment to clarify my stance on Chuunitrixx:


@BurningDaisies
Congratulations(?)

If you wanna have a PM heart-to-heart, just shoot me PM. Shoot, if you really need, I can summarize the planned revelation; it's mad spoilers for her story, and will lose a lot of its emotional weight, but I don't want you to feel like you have to tolerate Chuunitrixx for the sake of the RP.

Also, as someone that unironically does not like GoT at all, and found grand happiness in its fall from grace, the comparison to Joffery falls flat on me. Sorry. :(

@Enkryption
Nah, it's fine. I don't wanna spoil your fun by getting to know future events and plans just because I'm a whiney, narrowminded punk. Though I don't have a problem with spoiling myself on things like anime and other media, it's a different story when it's someone's work who I'm actually directly in contact with. It feels incredibly rude to demand insight into the planned future of another person's work, just because I'm - at the moment - not onboard with the concpt in question. ;(

Also, I forgot to mention, but despite me not being a fan of the current Chuunitrixx, I really liked the first, original version of her. :)

On a different note entirely;

We got news today that the open clinic in our neighbouring area just closed down on account of having had confirmed Corona-victim(s) visit it. Since I work at a grocery store, chances are very high that sick people (knowing or otherwise) will come and shop at my workplace. We've taken the precautions that can be taken, but we can't exactly stop people from buying food...

So, yeah, my days are filled with sunshine and rainbows right now. Hopefully people wise up to the seriousness of this virus and stop going outside on their own... But, hey, it's humans we're talking about, so... Yeah... Guess we're screwed. T~T

@Xaltwind How old are you? Corona causes lung scarring, which is why its 'deadly', but if your not immune compromised or elderly you should be fine. I don't know any proper treatments for the disease itself though, might need to ask a doctor about that. but yeah.

BTW, I like how you guys are discussing Chuunitrixx and Light knows very little about all of whats going on with her. Shes kind of in her own little world right now, which is kind of funny and sad at the same time.

I work at Starbucks and they told us we need to step off the bar to wash our hands every thirty minutes now and the only thing we can take from customers now is money. Want to use your refillable cup for your drink? Nope, going to have to pour it in yourself. We also aren't letting anyone use the condiment bar. You want any milk, cream, or sugar in your drink? We have to stop whatever it is we're doing to pour it in for you. It's really impacting the speed at which we're able to work, but let me tell you the customers have not decided to stop coming or come less often.

God the end of that video reminds me when I overheard a bunch of girls talking about getting water at Starbucks just so they could have the Starbucks cups to drink from, even though there were a bunch of other stores nearby that they could get a free cup of water from.

I wouldd link the entire collection of relevant videos on this, but they're sorta gripey and overly anti-Starbucks. xD
