also i’ve been thinking about it and i think a lot of discourse surrounding dream smp characters tends to come from the incorrect assumption that there’s a “correct” way to read a character which, honestly isn’t how media analysis works
a work of media will usually have multiple meanings simply because it will be interpreted differently by different people with different perspectives, and that’s GOOD actually. that’s normal. there isn’t a wrong or right way to interpret a work of fiction. so long as someone genuinely interpreted the work in that way, it’s not an inaccurate reading, because that’s how the work read to them.
also, death of the author. word of god means nothing. people care too much about what the “objective” meaning of a work is, when people are never consuming the objective meaning of a work when they engage with a piece of media. they’re consuming their own personal interpretation.
i think this fandom has way too many debates over whose interpretation of a character or arc is the correct one and not enough discussing different interpretations and how people come to the conclusions they do, and appreciating other potential ways to read a character
think of it like this - there’s usually multiple ways you can interpret a song, and one isn’t more correct than the other if that’s what the song means to the listener. the same goes with storytelling.
different interpretations should be celebrated.
