I don‘t get how some people don‘t understand that the standards for antagonistic and heroic characters are completly different. There‘s nothing wrong with liking a villain who does horrible things, but plays their role in the story well, while also disliking a hero character for doing something less bad. They just have different roles (and standards to abide by). Sorry for rambling and my bad english. Sending good vibes.
Your English is lovely, don't worry! (and I'm the last person allowed to get on someone's case for rambling lol)
I’m not really sure what’s up with that, honestly. It’s like hearing, “I like [villain character] but I don’t like [hero character],” and someone just goes, “well clearly you’re awful because you like the bad character more.”
And again, without hearing you out or trying to argue your points. Like, I know there’s Protagonist-Centered Morality in narratives, but that doesn’t have to extend to fandom people who favor the antagonist? Plus, I think people liking “““the bad guy”““ specifically because they’re bad and they don’t like the “goody-two-shoes” characters is perfectly fine and valid. Not usually the way I go about things - I prefer marshmallow characters myself though I also like doses of chaos here and there (I’m reading a webtoon right now and the male love interest is absolutely out for blood for those who wrong the main character, and I’m here for it) - but yeah.
Felix got punched for trying to nonconsensually kiss Ladybug, while Alya continuously doesn’t and has even gotten rewarded for wronging Marinette. People prefer when characters are punished when they do bad things?
So I just... don’t get it when people pretend like there must be another meaning behind it.
