You know how about every, Single. Episode story revolves around look and the MC (weather it’s female, male or in any age) is always being call beautiful or hot etc?
Well, I’m kinda tired of it… Can’t people writes stories with ugly MC? If she/ he has a troubled past and imaginary scars on her/ his skin doesn’t make it anything like that, they’re still beautiful and perfect and on the other side there’s me while reading those stories most likely eating ice cream in my ugly ass pajamas slightly over weight and half my skin is covered with actual really ugly scars and it makes me feel fucking horrible about myself (even though I’m well aware those characters aren’t real people it still pisses me off to read about it).
Why can’t stories be all about personality and and not about look?
Because it would be a crime to have an MC who’s really ugly and maybe still gets to live a happy life without looking like a model and have people love her for herself?
So, even though Episode characters can’t be truly imperfect, I’m, trying to make a a story like that.
This is the MC:
I want to intentionally make her look ugly and with no fashion sense.
There will be no CC, that’s how she’ll look.
I know a character’s skin color can bother some people, but she’s supposed to look super pale, because, believe it or not, people get really judged because they look “too pale” (I have a really really light skin and people just randomly mock me and make jokes about me being sick but this is just my natural skin color, it gets burned easily at the sun)
The story won’t be focusing on anything real or on a real life base, I just wanna write a story where the main character is the focus and she is not perfect, I’ll get in art scenes where she will have some “extra weight” and stretch marks, scars and whatever else, but the character is supposed to have a lot of flaws unlike most characters in Episode stories.
I want to make a story where a character is being loved for her personality and not just her body and looks.
Also, there’s that thing in multiple Episode stories around the community, when the more important MC is being hated and ignored and people just love the “hot” and “bad” male character and even like when the MC (when it’s a female MC) to get hurt and I don’t get how those people can’t see how sick it is and how terrible and a major stereotype about how women are always weaker than men so I don’t wanna do that either…
I never published an actual story, but I’ve been learning directing close to a year by now and I wrote 12 (yes, 12) that I never published.
Anyway, my directing is pretty amazing and perfect, and I can make really cool characters overlays, so first story, lousy directing and plot (I’ve been working on story and character development too), not a problem… Honestly it’s time I’ll write something I’ll actually publish
Well, sorry I wrote waaay too much and probably just depressed some people with this, but–
