DONNY CATES @Doncates Dec 11 I promise you dont really want to read a book where Eddie is doing fine and everything is awesome and everyone is happy That book is boring and you will not like that book Or maybe you would I dunno I'm not writing that book symbisexual-disaster*glances wearily at my 5000 bookmarked fics in which everything is awesome and everyone is happy* Honestly this just shows what a shallow understanding of story writing he has and I don’t know how he got to become a writer as a result of thisConflict makes a story interesting but it’s pretty clear that a he only has 1 idea of conflict tragedy and b he sees no room for character growth because anything other than tragedy is considered boring and irrelevant and therefore we never see characters put into different situations and he doesn’t have to write them react to anything other than tragedyShowing Eddie and Venom doing well doesn’t even have to be the whole series honestly I’d find that pretty boring too after several issues as much as I want to see Eddie and Venom grocery shopping or going to the farmer’s market The point of doing so is a character development and b a break in the storyline from any current conflict As much as peace trivial aspects of Eddie’s life will get boring after several issues so will conflict I’m really tired of seeing overblown issues left right and centre and absolutely no pause given to Eddie’s development not to mention he’s regressing because of shitty writingThat one scene where Eddie’s speaking to V but seemingly himself when he’s eating noodles and V’s asking for a bloody steak? That’s the kind of shit I’m talking about It’s literally 2 pages of Eddie speaking to himself being very kind to V then snapping back at a stranger who’s weirded out by him and he and V then proceed to have a conversation about innocence and stupidity Not only does this show Eddie’s a dick in day-to-day life which contrasts with his ideas of being a good person and saving the innocent it also shows V’s basic but forming ideas about human characteristics and personalities and Eddie has to do his best to help V understand innocent == stupid That’s all it fucking took! 2 pages of a regular conversation between Eddie and V! Then you can get back to whatever conflict is happening!Donny Cates never graduated from the school of ‘I like these characters and I’m going to make them suffer’ and it shows Meme
