After a convo with some people I think I also know why characters like MJ Watson, Amy Rose, Karmi, and Dana Tan get so much hate: because they’re NOT the Idealistic girl trope.

They’re nice girls who dates the main characters but NOT to the detriment of other female characters. These characters tend to pursue hobbies such as dancing, acting, traditionally feminine stuff and SOMETIMES has to get rescued by the heroes. So they’re weak. And heroes don’t love weak women.

They have flaws like being stubborn and short tempered, clingy or shallow, and don’t ALWAYS agree with the hero in everything. Yet these same characters tend to be the moral support the hero may need. The narrative doesn’t paint them as angels or saints but as characters.

But because they’re not a certain archetype ( Cool Mysterious Strong) then they’re put down by the fandom for merely existing.

It’s especially bad when the official narrative starts doing things to add more fuel to the shipping fire. Either they do everything in their power to erase them from the story or introduce a Cool Girl to pit against and use the love interest as a tool to make the Cool Girl look better. In turn the fandom thinks that the love interest is a complete bitch despite the contrary shown on screen. It’s the fundamental opposite of my coined term Orihime Syndrome; only the main love interest still has consistent characterization and whose actions are not as bad as some parts o the fandom paints them as.

So I haven’t been posting most of my October drawings here because… Because I’m lazy, I guess, and posting to Instagram is hassle enough. But here are some of the ones I liked that I didn’t post here. Sign O’ The Times-era Prince, Anne Hathaway as Mary Jane Watson, weird Twin Peaks drawing whose stylistic choices were all made up as I went, Rico Nasty, Batman, Wolverine, Baby Godzilla, and Godzilla. Heisei series forever. Just picking a random thing to draw every day is a lot more fun than going from a list of prompts to me.
