This is how Parpers portray HS characters eighty precent of the time. Eighty. Ugh.
The only differences I’ve seen in my experience that Aradias are OOCly obsessed with romancing Sollux redwise, Sollux and Eridan and Tavros and Gamzee get the rainbow spaghetti treatment, and Actual Darling Innocent Toddler Mituna Captor.
Distressing how accurate this is, though. It’s even more distressing trying to roleplay with any of these awful cliches.
Come on people, cronus is a fictional character there’s not much use in breaking down the character to get a point across. it’s like ragging on someone for liking a horrible and demented villain who has done so much worse but no one says anything they’re just like aAYYY. just chill jfc
Isn’t that a rather dull and lazy standpoint?
Breaking complex characters down and examining their motives - especially when said motives aren’t exactly good or appealing - is interesting, it’s fun and helps people understand and appreciate the character more.
Dunno why anyone would leap to the 'B-but muh fictional character, STOP CARING' defense unless the content of said discussion made them feel uncomfortable. And given that this is tagged #Cronus only a short while after someone who appreciates and understands Cronus’s character better than virtually anyone else I’ve seen posted a lot of stuff about it, I’m fairly confident that’s the reason.
