I feel like his Let’s Plays have gone down from before. Really, the only reason why I might watch him nowadays is for his little skit things where he’s just fucking around.

Considering you said the "GITINNABAG!!1!" thing is a great meme (which I politely disagree with): yes. Yes it is.

I’m just saying: Ridley is supposed to be a competent flyer, spends most of his time doing that even. You leave that in and have people call it unbalanced or leave it out and have people complain. Because people will always complain. But I suppose that might work and there’d be more people happy that he’d be playable anyway.

They could give him a long ass recovery time when he’s knocked down so that if he flies over a pit he can be one shoted,

I meant great with some sarcasm, I personally like the meme, but like a lot of memes it’s not exactly amazing. That song is just overused imo
And I’ve never played Metroid so sorry if my suggestions were dumb lol

His newer videos are better than back when he did Amnesia lets plays but even then he still isnt all that great. He doesnt deserve the massive amount of hate he gets though thats for sure, especially when hes been trying to evolve past his earlier stuff that people like to hate him for.

Hyrule Warriors.

Great game good story but I think for the narrative they should have included Twinrovia, as well as Groose and maybe some "spare villain" like Agahnim or Vaati.

No, no, it’s alright. I’m not being entirely serious anyway. But yeah, it being overused is because of memes.

And again: naw man, wasn’t anything wrong with your suggestions. I just tend to get one-tracked on certain thoughts.

Duck - He literally asked for this

If your fanfic has more than 2 "What ifs", then you no longer interest me.

Seriously, this is an example of an actual summary of a Naruto fic.
"What if Naruto met the Kyūbi a little earlier? What if the Bijū weren’t all that they seemed? What if Naruto’s soul held a terrible secret that no one, not even he knew? What if there were more than nine Bijū? What if Naruto didn’t want the be the Hokage? And what if he graduated from the academy early on?"

The entire fucking summary is filled to the brim with "What ifs". Like, God, this is one of the worst summaries I had ever seen. It’s just filled with so much alterations that it might as well be its own original story but with the same characters.

I am not reading this. The summary ruined it for me. How can I enjoy a good read when the starting line is this stupid?

IDK Whiterose of Vermilion is a good read ant it’s just the RWBY characters in an original story set in a different time period based on guess work from back when all we had was the trailers,

If that’s the summary, it’s obviously not a good fic, the writing of the actual story will probably be atrocious as well. Defending AUs though, which that one is, some AUs are very well written.

@Thanotos Omega
I just looked it up and there isn’t even a "what if" statement in the summary at all. It just says Medieval AU and then whatever a real summary is supposed to have.

@HJSDGCE
You couldn’t tell from the name?

Not really, Weiss seems to be aware she’s into Ruby, but she fucked up and has allot of work to do to make a relationship possible, though Ruby is at least showing signs of her own subconscious attraction since Weiss being dressed up got her to let go of the grudge for a moment at least, in the end the intrigue has been taking center stage,


@VNagato
well i thought you meant in spirit not exact words,

It’s a shipping fic, if the name White Rose wasn’t evident enough.

I look at words and themes equally, just because the theme might be alright, if the writing is terrible, there’s really no value other than the base idea.

Well yeah it’s got ships but they aren’t hollowed out fluff, the Bumblebee is extremely plot important since that’s why Adam made so much effort to ruin Yang’s life,

Why did you censor names and the ship name, it even says in the damn relationships/character thing that it had Yang X Blake in it. Don’t misunderstand that just because it has a legitimate plotline, that it’s just a fanfiction primarily made to ship by using a story. Just because the fic isn’t plotless fluff, doesn’t change what it really is.

You came off like you were accusing it of being a romance devoid of other merits, it’s also a political thriller and mystery, i censored it because it’s massive spoilers that it’s involved in what it is,

Nope, I write a lot of fics myself, but it’s not like the base idea is different, I wanna ship these two, make a whole scenario, story, plot, conflicts, etc. I’m not making it lesser than it is, just pointing out that the base idea is usually just for shipping, and you’re the one making a bigger deal of this fanfiction of what it is in the first place.

I love AUs. In fact, I’m writing one right now. One where Blake is Weiss’s butler and maid.

Just the goddamn description.

This explains a lot of fanfics. You don’t make a plot surrounding a ship, you make the ship relevant to the plot. It’s fine for it to be a focus but when the plot changes for the sake of the ship, you know it’s just blatant romance.

You can make a story that’s revolved around a ship, and as you said, that is just blatant romance. But stories like AUs and crap and legitamite plotlines can grow from that idea.
I don’t know how to put it into words and I’m just confusing myself now.
