when will the kuro fandom understand you can like problematic characters without condoning their actions

never because fictional characters have to be 'uwu precious beans' who haven't done anything wrong in order for you to like them without being judged

AKAI. i had no idea you were even into it hewwo fellow kuroshit
yeAh its like?? people dont understand that all shows / characters etc arent supposed to be black and white..they think youre either supposed to like a character or youre not its hella annoying
like theyre all going around 'yOU CANT LIKE THIS CHARACTER THEY DID A BAD THING ONCE' its like they think all characters are supposed to be sitting in trees baking cookies

a certain romance. YEAH it's an old fandom of mine and I don't watch a lot of anime or read much manga anymore but it was one the first I was into !!
IT'S ANNOYING AS HELL TBH and then god forbid you write one of these characters bc then if you do you're a terrible person when you can like a character for the character and not the shit they've done 
just because you roleplay Grell doesn't mean you're gonna murder someone's aunt in front of their nephew wtf 
THAT and they also try to woobify characters that have done bad things; 'pure' no, not pure, actually very far from pure

AKAI. i envy you for managing to escape im still neck deep
EXACTLY!!! they dont get that characters are allowed to be flawed (in fact, they should be bc surprise! thats good writing!) but they believe that liking that character in general makes you a 'uwu apologist' even when you state outright that you dont support the shit theyve done
riGHt and as sad as it is tumblr (bc y'all know how tumblr is about lgbt characters) LOVES to woobify and even fetishize grell claiming theyre 'uwu pure and cute' and erasing almost all of their bad traits (which is...basically their entire character lmao) like honey no thats a serial killer youre talking about here you cant do that
like i KNOW and acknowledge grell's an awful person as much as a love them its not that hard

a certain romance. IT TOOK YEARS,,,,,,,,,,
and yeah !! not all characters can't be good, not all characters can be picture perfect and pure; if all of them were, the world of fiction would be pretty fucking boring. I wrote one of the most problematic characters of one of my fandoms and holy shit I wouldn't endorse anything he did if you held me at gunpoint. And the people who can do that and write these characters without endorsing anything they do, that's good writing! It means you can explore that kind of character!
ohhhh tumblr,,,,ye mortal enemy,,,,
I used to roleplay there man and holy shit, if you wrote a 'problematic' character, you got witch hunted and burned at the stake 
And if you try and point of the flaws this character has, if they fall into a minority category, you suddenly hate that minority
"Grell Sutcliff is a complex character and is an awful person but still very fun to explore for all of their flaws" "YOU'RE BEING TRANSPHOBIC" ...dude I'm trans myself

AKAI. exactly!! because guESs what!! thats how real people are too! in my eyes, those flaws just make the characters more interesting; if they all had basic textbook personalities they'd be boring as hell. alsoooo it's even better when the authors themselves manage to write problematic characters bc that shows theyre brave about it, AND can do it well
ahanskah i'd thought about tumblr rping a few times buut grell (aka the only character i can actually keep a consistent muse for) being controversial in several different ways on that site holds me back |D
yeaAH tumblr is famous for accusing those who like problematic characters of being problematic themselves and calling them out
'grell canonically killed 100 people who werent on the to-die list --' 'STOP INSULTING MY PRECIOUS WAIFU OMG #TRANSMISOGYNY' bc yes those things totally coinside with eachother

AKAI. y'know its funny how they hate sebastian just for being a demon yet worship grell who manipulated and emotionally abused their own mistress before killing her in front of her already traumatized nephew 🤔
