Men have written thousands of stories about how having a toxic relationship with their father has completely ruined their lives
but then make fun of girls for having “daddy issues”
Nintendo’s running a great set-up with the Zelda series where people laud them for having great story but like 90% of that story is completely a product of fan speculation. All they have to do is sprinkle some bread crumbs like “oh look here’s a familiar pattern from a dungeon in an old game on a wall over here” or “Look this guy has a hat like that other guy in that other game” and the fans invent all the possible narratives themselves and congratulate Nintendo for them, it’s great.
There’s almost like a formula for exactly how loose you can play it with your story to get maximum consumer involvement. Like, if something is a solid story that ties up all the loose ends people consume it, enjoy it, and put it back on the shelf. But if it’s just riddled with plot holes and unanswered questions that’s when the audience gets maximum engaged and move into your world to unpack and explain these mystery boxes littering the landscape.
It’s like… I have friends who love the prequels way more than the original Star Wars Trilogy and when we were like “what? How?” the way they justified it made me realize the prequel trilogy, while being terrible stories, are kind of like someone walked up and dumped out a Star Wars D&D set on the table and gave them tons of inspiration for fanfiction and OCs and extensive RPs that the solid, self-contained linear hero’s journey path of the original trilogy didn’t. Same thing with Harry Potter, it didn’t take the foothold it has in society because Harry’s such a likeable guy, it’s people trying to sort out and speculate on all the rules of Wizard society and imagine what it would be like it they or their original characters were fixtures in the universe, it’s people putting Harry to the side and wrapping themselves up in the world around him that created that lasting impression on people.
i could listen to most irish people talking for hours on end

In one of our university classes, our lecturer went off on a massive (and for my money, justified) rant about how people expect him to say “top o the mornin’ to ya” just because he was Irish.
New comic readers: Please understand that you can’t read all the comics in the world at once. Take it slow, pick and choose, and enjoy. Don’t rush yourself and stress yourself out to try and prove yourself as a dedicated comic book lover to a bunch of douchebags.
if your disability activism doesn’t support belligerent disabled people, disabled people who refuse meds or therapy, disabled people who don’t trust the system that’s fucked them over too many times to count—if your disability activisim depends on disabled people being nice or respectable or willing to be made into inspiration porn—it is not good disability activism.

I sincerely doubt that. It’s more that Alan Moore is a very cranky old man who has tried his best to elevate the medium, but it’s still viewed as the domain of superheroes only. And because DC, which is primarily about superheroes, has screwed him over so much, it tends to paint an image for him.
so what kind of theoretical tensile strength are we talkin about here because
