LitFL



:star:NEWS:star:
It's been quite a while since we had a LitFL... well, I have some good news and some better news.

The good news is I have found a fail worthy of a rant. The better news is it's nobody you guys know of. Fresh fails ripe for the picking! :iconderpfaceplz:

So, before I talk about the fail in question, I should mention a few things first.

I drew one of those "Character is..." pictures years ago, and my choice was William from "Code: Lyoko." Now, the reason I chose him was because he is often portrayed negatively in fan-fiction... and often times he's very out of character. He's my favorite male character from the show, and I appreciate him because he's the underdog who tries the best he can. Plus, as I've said on my pictures of him, he treats the girl he loves - Yumi - very well. And I'm all for bad boys who treat girls they love with respect. :D

W
Hooray for underdogs who are amazing!

W
It helps that he's the most attractive guy on the show too...

Naturally, I was prepared for a barrage of butthurt comments from crazy fans who can't accept other opinions, because I had seen so much anti-William stuff going around. But the truth is the image has received mostly positive attention, and that's because the image speaks the truth... not opinions, not my own ideals of how he acts. Just the honest to goodness facts about William.

William is... by Porcelain-Requiem
This is the "Character is..." image I made.

Now, just to clarify, I can accept some characters being slightly out of character for a story setting, but these portrayals of him were so off, it was ridiculous.

And, since I'm a fan of William, I felt he definitely deserved a positive picture. :)

But, of course, many people got their pants in a bunch over me preferring William over Ulrich. Sorry folks! I prefer guys who treat their girlfriends with respect and loyalty. Problem? :trollface:

W+Y"
This couple makes Yumi/Ulrich fans shit bricks... apparently.

Now, as I said before, the image I drew has received lots of comments... and most of them have been good. But then I got a couple odd ones today.

That's why they call it FAN FICITON! It's so we can bend characters the way we want to use them. If you don't want to see Will be all mixed up, don't read stories and don't look up pictures. peopele have imaganations so they make their own verions to the character. If you want to stick to the boreing old will that loves one person but never actually gets her you do that but leave others alone. And don't respond becuase I don't want to hear you spout any more crap.

What's "fan-ficiton?" I thought it was fan-fiction? And "verions", "boreing", "becuase", "peopele", and "imaganations?" Might wanna look into spellcheckers... just saying. Also, I love how she makes it sound so easy to avoid all the anti-Will stuff. Yeah... perhaps she forgot it's frigging everywhere. And, since William is my favorite character, it's kind of hard to just avoid this crap. And William's boring? (Oh wait! "Boreing!") :XD: Really now? I think she confused William with Ulrich, because Ulrich has the personality of a sponge. And my! She's acting like a grand poobah here by telling me not to reply to a comment she left on my page. Who does she think she is? Last time I checked, I had free speech too.

So, naturally, I did reply... and she came back with this.

I hate cheerios and what did I say about spouting your crap to me. And who cares that it's your page. Read the rules. You post something expect comments like mine, and stop limiting people to what you want Will to be. Everyone has there own way of defining characters don't force your opinions on others. (Don't even say you don't because you say it your self, he's not this he's not that he is THIS and that's how you should keep him.) Don't be such a super fan that you won't let others think the way they want about a character.

(Note: I asked her who peed in her Cheerios, which is why she mentioned that.) And no, I didn't spout crap. I just replied. Nothing more, nothing less. And I do get a chuckle at how she tells me to read the rules when she's threatening me to stop replying to her. :XD: And when did I limit people from doing what they want? I do recall that I have never done that once. It's "their", not "there." And I don't "force" my opinions on others. If you recall correctly, she's the one who chose to leave a negative comment trying to force me to do something she wanted me to do. All I did was draw the picture years ago. I've never forced the image on others. And yes, I am saying that William is like this and not like this. That's the point of the "Character is..." images. And I don't. Child, make some sense. Please. :iconnojoyplz:

Naturally, I replied again... and now, I await the next reply. Here's the link to the conversation, just for those who are curious. If you choose to say something to her, try to keep it reasonable. comments.deviantart.com/1/6242…

Honestly, I'm not too surprised over all of this. William haters are everywhere and they often act immaturely when someone so much as dares to prefer William over Ulrich. I have seen many... including one who put up an anti-Yumi/William image (now deleted) after I drew a Yumi/William image for my own enjoyment. And trust me, she made the image because she was mad at me. She said it in the description and comments.

Ah, silly children! :D

SPECIAL UPDATE!!

Just wanted to let you all know, I shall be flying out of town very early on Wednesday for a few days. My fiance is graduating from Basic Training, and he wanted to see me so much. So, I probably won't be on much. First time flying! So excited! :la:

Until next time...

"Ulrich has the personality of a sponge" lol, now I'm trying to imagine him with the personality of Spongebob. It would be an improvement, from what I remember. :iconspongebobplz:

I haven't watch CL in forever, but I remember preferring William to Ulrich as well, probably for similar reasons. I love how that silly girl tells you to stop pointing out how wrong people are about a character, because it's their right to wrongly portray and interpret someone, duh!

After my experiences with other fandoms and reading this, I got to a conclusion: if you're against the majority, you're the trash that dares to disagree with the "established order" (or better said, the majority's preferences). And I can understand you about the bashing towards your favorite character, you know, I understand when people dislikes a character for valid reasons (personality, etc) but when they start to treat or portray said as character as something he/she's NOT, it gets annoying.

And congratulations for your traveling!!! :D

It's just ridiculous. And they tend to be very hypocritical. For example, if you portray the guy they like in a negative way, they'll go apeshit. But if they portray the guy you like in a negative way, you have to just accept it.

Total BS.

Thanks. We had a good trip.

Omg! I loved your art before, but just reading this you're even more of an awesome person than I thought. >w<

I don't really understand why they need to go and hate on this pairing. I used to support both UxY and WxY equally, but with the amount of haters out there I became more of a WxY fan. I'm not one to read much fan fiction, but the fan fics I've read for CL made me dislike fan fics even more. There was this one about William being a rapist around Yumi that made me want to rage...so much. >:T I'm so glad there are people out there who don't victimize William into being this evil person. Because he's a good person. >:T

I have this friend who I recently found out was also a CL fan, and she told me about her favorite pairing being UxY, which I respect.^^ She rps as Yumi while I rp as William, and I helped her see the good side of William, so she now doesn't mind WxY. lol! XD

Oh dear, this comment is so long. I'm so sorry. ;w;

Flying is wonderful, especially when you have a window seat.

It probably won't be as extravagant a flight, but I remember going to Japan and flying over Alaska... the snowy mountains looked like piles of sugar! :heart: Although flying over the ocean for about 6-8 hours was a pretty boring view.

I miss this! I missed the Fail Lane!
I thought I'll never hear from this again.
And now to speak properly...

Although that deviant might have a point, the way they spoke so childishly and used words that conflict with his actions, is stupid. We got a fail one here. She says that you can't expect people to be what you want and you can just ignore them, then why can't she just ignore you? Then again, if she didn't ignore you, there'll be no Fail Lane right now.

Hooray for Fail Lane!

Oh poor William...he just doesn't deserve the hate. Xana got control of him against his will, so he was still innocent.

I like both Ulrich/Yumi and William/Yumi (because each has qualities that make it adorable), but sometimes people like this take it too far. She doesn't need to get her panties in a bunch. (excuse the saying) Plus, bad spelling isn't helping her case one bit.

And good luck flying!
