Fairies Don't Matter
Fairies Don't Matter
An Exercise in Otaku Honesty
by Daniel Fouste
"What is worse than finding a Worm of Evil in the apple is finding half a Worm."
- Harlan Ellison
The other day, I had one of those fanboy-related crises I occasionally have every once in a while, the kind that is especially relatable if you're an Aspie like me. Whilst browsing the Interwebs, I stumbled upon a screenshot of a panel from this week's chapter of Fairy Tail; as much as I have been trying to avoid anything FT-related in the past two years (I'll get to that in a bit), my curiosity piqued me since it was the one of Carla as a humanoid. By the time I went to bed last night, I had already gained knowledge of everything that had happened in, say, the past six months or so of the manga, from Wikipedia, TV Tropes and whatnot.
And to be perfectly honest, I don't like what I'm hearing.
Allow me to explain.
As I have said, I have been trying to avoid anything related to FT in the past two years (t

What I Believe In
What I Believe In
by Daniel Fouste
I believe in being a good person, but also acknowledging that we have a dark side.
I believe in America, but I also believe that we are a nation of stuck-up assholes.
I believe in being a more casual fan of something, as opposed to being overly obsessed with a certain thing. The same especially goes for hating something.
I believe in writing for fun, but only when you do it for yourself and not to please certain readers.
I believe the That Guy with the Glasses philosophy of "reviewing" is a joke. The critics I admire use humor in a more natural way rather than as a premise or a gimmick. Sadly, my generation has yet to understand this.
I believe the only truly good fictional couples are the ones that are evident from the beginning. Otherwise, you're just pandering to overly obsessed (see, there I go again) shippers.
I believe video advertising on the Internet should be outlawed, if only for the fact that it totally slows down what I'm doing.

Why I'm Not a Brony
Why I'm Not a Brony
by Daniel Fouste
My name is Daniel, and I'm not a Brony.
Calm down. Before you accuse me of heresy and sacrilege, let me explain.
I like the show, okay? Granted, I've only seen a few episodes, but from what I've seen, it's a pretty decent show. Hell, it almost made me interested in MLP again (I have memories of watching the earlier generations on the Disney Channel). Almost.
But in the end, I can't bring myself to watch the show even casually, because of how insane the fanbase has gotten at this point.
Again, don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to diss the fans, I happen to have a friend who's a Brony, he dresses up as Rainbow Dash when he goes to events and conventions. But let's not kid ourselves: the fanbase has gotten insane.
And because of this, I have no choice but to put the "overrated" label on the whole damn thing.
Overrated. A word that I know some Bronies/Pegasisters don't use in their vocabulary. Or at least, misinterpret it. B

What is going on with my favourites list? Is DA afraid of screwing the pooch on its ad revenue or something? (Or at least, that's why I think the mature content stuff is missing from there.)
My kingdom to own the Buddyfight manga at a reasonable price. (I mean, c'mon, Bushiroad, $30 for shipping and handling? Get real.)
I have a prediction: five years from now, people will dump Doug Walker in the same way we already dumped Maddox. Chew on that, Nostalgia Critic fans.

Have an idea for a fanfiction series with multiple characters from various shows; thing is, unlike all the other fanfiction series with multiple characters from various shows, the ones where they band together to save the multiverse, mine would be more like the old Lite Beer commercials from the 70s/80s.

Aspie, aspiring writer, lives with his mom, somewhat obsessive fan of several things, self-loathing Millennial. Other than that, I'm fine.
