Nothing's sacred about the feminine. Why do the "females are sacred!" types always have nothing more to say than "sex good oh please mistress give me sex/i am a mistress and goddess and if you kiss my ass enough i might touch your lowly earthling body" and shit like that?>fillial love
More like filly-al love! Aha ha ha ha ha, bom bom.>george
Wait, George RR Martin does what now?
His books are on my list of things to read and my "strategy games are my life" friend said to try the Game Of Thrones mod for CK2, but why would his works make /lit/ rage and what makes it a "Modernist deconstruction"?
Is it because in the end of the show, Dennis Bangarang has her dragon kill a bunch of civilians after she suddenly rips Azula off to go crazy? I remember that pissing off a lot of people and pleasing other people because sometimes she's very sweet and anti-slavery and sometimes she's very violent and burn-them-all-ish, or so I hear.
also I heard that ending was noncanon and written by the show's authors rather than George Rorge Rorge Martorge himself. also it showed a starbucks coffee at some point.
Also, what's modernism? I'd google it myself using duckduckgo but I'd probably get a bluepilled fake answer.
I know postmodernism is supposed to be smartly breaking things down and revealing it to be silly and fake so we can understand it better, but it's actually just a leftist's religious belief that you're smarter than everything and everything you say is magically correct and everything else is actually silly and fake, especially if you can imagine it to be silly.
If a Postmodernist Tony Hawk movie is one where Tony Hawk's a 300lb fatass who farts every minute and breaks every skateboard he gets on (A stereotypical "silly thing" despite being unrelated to what Tony Hawk is. postmodernism is at best just a lazy low-effort mockery pretending to be a parody, and at usually just shit on a canvas calling itself art) what would a Modernist one be? A movie that says life as a skater sucks?>>269785
A scrapped idea I had for a human-in-equestria fic where the human dies like an idiot during a giant monster fight, had the world of Ponies translated as "Everything's a 2D image but at different visible distances from you. Like they're all 2D sprites. Move and the sprites rotate to face you, move enough and they switch from a head-on view to a 3/4 view or side view. Like the sprites in DOOM or the Jpeg items in Smash Melee. It took the human guy, who's used to seeing in 3D at 60FPS, a while to get used to seeing in almost-2D at 24fps.
There was a planned arc where the human realizes being in Equestria cures his crippling depression and makes him forget bad things in his past. He asks Twilight what's going on and once she understands what he's saying she's all "That's normal. Why would anyone want to dwell on bad past events? Also the world is more cheerful"
but the world's actually a cartoon that gradually morphs him from 3d human in 2D land into a living 2D character in the Johnny Test artstyle. He can even make whipcrack SFX on demand. This gives him mild cartoon abilities but he still dies for thinking he's invincible.>the thing where fanfic writers feel the urge to explain away cartoon things
Game fanfic writers do this even more.
It's ridiculous. Who feels the urge to explain away why this game does this when that button is pressed?
Oh hey, Ash Ketchum's Charizard got hurt in the last fight. Losing means death instead of losing cash and fleeing home in this edgy story, so Ash decides to use a potion.
Four paragraphs explaining the history and function of a potion later,
Ash finally uses the potion on Charizard and puts it back in his backpack which is a high-tech portal to CyberSpace where 999x of any item can be stored.
It's like these kids only ever read JK Rowling and her tendency to put bullshit useless filler explanations where they're not needed. But their instincts said "Don't do it as bad as she did it" so they usually don't.
Now it would be FUCKING FINE if it ever MATTERED.
If there was a bit later on where a guy hacks his backpack's data using a PC to get unlimited money or Master Balls or Rare Candies, for example.
if Pokemon's "Turn-Based Battle System" is a mandatory thing for Official Tourneys that gets ignored during battles in the wild where illegal orders like "Bisharp, chop that Charizard's head off using Iron Claw!" can be given.
if we learned where the Laughtrack comes from in a Big Bang Theory fic for example: Turns out Penny has brain problems and she's been hallucinating everything with some fat nerdy customers at her waitress job, she doesn't really have smart friends or smart girlfriends.
But it's fucking everywhere!
People are prepared to accept that in book form, Dante Sparda can do more with a sword than swing it in 6 pre-made animations.
They should bloody expect some creative fight scenes better than "He dodged 4 attacks by using his Trickster Dodge, then he parried 3 Nightmare lightning bolts using his Drive slash, then he performed Ground Combo C with his Sparda before knocking his foe into the air and hitting him with The Icy Nunchucks of Doom 5 times on their way down then doing a JC Air-Stinger TRICKSWORDTRICKSWORD spam combo for 23 seconds".
Look at some of the fucking cool bullshit Dante does in DMC3 during cutscenes.
That's what a story about DMC should try to emulate when taking things to the written word.
But no, everyone just wants to write about Dante using canon moves and canon weapons to smack canon demons around for a bit. or they want to write about Dante climbing up his brother Vergil's Temen-Ni-Gru Tower and rubbing his Balrogs on Vergil's Yamato before taking a Judgement Nut End in the ass.
I hate that effort is put into explaining away technical limitations of the old media, instead of just throwing them away and letting the story put something better in its place.
