karkashan in naruto_rants

Hi.

If you "Include Sakura-bashing because that c*** deserves it" there's going to be a part of me that will dislike you for all eternity.

Please die in a fire while I blacklist you, your stories, and every community/favorites page that includes either of them.

With love and joy,

Karkashan.

(comment redacted because I thought it was in another comm, derr) I hate bashfic. If I don't like a character, I just don't write about them. I've actually written fics about Naruto characters I dislike, such as Itachi, as a challenge to see if I can make them sympathetic. Also, when people go on about Sakura being a 'cunt', it's a red flag. There's one lovely person on Deviantart who made a stamp of her with 'just a cunt, not a heroine', and his ENTIRE GALLERY is filled with Sakura-bashing 'art'.

I don't get wasting that amount of energy on hating a fictional character. I really don't.

There are so many potentially good stories that just get dragged down by bashing. Like right up until that point, the author had a grasp on the characters and what makes a story feel close enough to canon while being outrageously AU at the same time. But once they hit that, it's like the socks are off and every single plot point from then on is the most rehashed, pedantic, bullcrap we've seen 200 times before. Common one: bashing Kakashi because he "didn't teach them anything", ignoring the fact that they're effing genin at that point, and there was never really a reason to train them as hard or as fast as they ended up getting taught (before they knew about Akatsuki and Orochimaru).

My "Favorite" thing is when I find there are CT's with a pairing/premise I like, but every story in there has bashing of a character in it.

And by "Favorite", I mean "rage-inducing".
