So I got round to doing the questing for Darkrider Arly and Olakin this evening, because that's how I roll (i.e. hooray for ADHD and my focus being all over the place wheeeee), and once again I got struck by how fucking fantastic a villain Arthas is.

fangirly bollocks follows! )

Dear fanfic authors,

If you've acknowledged that XYZ Fantasy Race is coded in a way that is just Orientalist as balls, but you STILL opt to characterize them in fanfic as just this side of Ming the Merciless/Dragon Lady/Discount Jafar, you have only done half the blasted homework and need to go back to the editing desk right now before I bite you a lot.

Smooch smooch,

Someone who's really tired of people depicting WoW elves in ways that are at the root just racist (yes, it still counts if 'Elves' = 'Generic Pop-culture Stereotype Asian/Middle Eastern lololololol'), gross and issue-laden as fuck.

I mean--writing a compelling love-to-hate antagonist who's well thought out and whose portrayal is NOT steeped in grody old bigotry? Awesome. Feel free to have Fandral be as big a douche as you like, it gives your heroes a reason to fight. But there is 'douche' and then there's 'oh for fuck's sakes why did you do that'. If your villain up and starts sprouting all these Fu Manchu/Dragon Lady/Evil Vizier-esque traits that are indicated fuck-nowhere in canon, there's something going on that needs addressing. That is not interpretation anymore, that is Issues.

Srsly don't do that shit it's hacky and makes my ass twitch. :D

why did you have to give me another race of nifty, gender-ambiguous, ancient, snarky, cantankerous arthropod people to squee about.

(though, your writer should've totally had them call the PC 'biped'... XD)

Now I wanna write Anub'arak and some of the Klaxxi having a big philosophical debate. :B

ETA: LORE SPOILARS in DW comments, proceed at own risk.

I am always intensely envious of people who make those dramatic kinds of **~*~**~~I'mma putting away childish things*~*~**~~~ speeches.

It means they actually got a chance to BE relatively regular kids.

Some of us? Didn't.

So beggin' these folks' pardon if I seem kid-esque, I have been required to strictly monitor my health every blessed day since I was quite small (among other shit) and compared to others I know I had it easy.

If a little Secret of Mana squee gets the speechers all upsetticakes with me--well, they can just go make sweet sweet love to the Lime Slime. XP

Excuse me. I have a jabberwocky to punch.

this post brought to you by the letters F and U, and the number 1, as in NO1CURR. jesus biscuit-munching christ, douche-I-am-bitching-about, my discussion of enjoying an SNES game is not your cue to lecture me about how much more mature you are than me and how I use gaming as a crutch.
