While you're not obligated to use my interpretation you're also obligated to explain it's your interpretation, when asked where it comes from (And providing fucking LINKS)
Actually, no, he isn't. It is completely unreasonable to expect him to remember the source of every bit of information he has used to write his stories and to keep around a pile of links just in case someone asks him for one.
Unless you can provide actual evidence
that his interpretation is wrong, you have no right to complain, really. So far you have both provided the same amount of evidence for your beliefs, that being absolutely none
. Therefore, he is just as entitled to believe his as you are to believe yours. Only, it's his
story and, therefore, his interpretation applies.
and to in general not act like a spoiled little brat about your story denying any criticism leveled at it for valid reasons.
Magos, when you're rude to someone and start shouting abuse and calling their character a Mary Sue, you can't really be surprised that they don't particularly want to talk to you about it....
Another thing is that while you don't have to accept or even like my opinions, you need to acknowledge that my opinions are likely not just my own opinions and will probably be the opinions of a good segment of your audience.
That's not necessarily true, though, although it may often be. You can easily have an interpretation that is completely different from everyone else's.
Instead of asking "Hey, why do they find something wrong with this." you seem to be going down the path of "I'm the author I'm always right." which is a horrible thing to do in fanfiction especially. Not only are you the one who usually acts improperly (Deleting threads for a bit of criticism and advice, whining about how we don't get it, refusing to even acknowledge that something might need to be improved, and a billion other things that I could go on and on about) you also never admit it when you are wrong, and you never FIX it either.
I don't think that's entirely true. Asking why people find something wrong with it is not the same as being expected to agree with their interpretation. And, the Nasuverse does have quite a lot of room for interpretation, because Nasu is rarely clear on things.
Lantz. Honestly, I don't hate you. I don't. I want to help you, I want to make you a better writer. But you simply don't acknowledge any valid feedback thrown at you, brushing it off. The way you present your ideas to us doesn't help either. You won't even admit "Yeah, I changed this to make the story work better." It's always your way or the highway and frankly, I'm fucking sick of that attitude. I'm sick of your 'don't like don't read' claims. I'm sick of your refusal to edit your shit. I'm sick in general of your antics and victim complex. Nobody is out to get you Lantz, but if you keep acting like you do I can't say there won't eventually be somebody.
Well, Lantz does acknowledge valid feedback, although I do agree he does not often change things based on it. I can't argue with you about the presentation, though, Lantz is quite poor at communicating what he really means, and comes off a lot worse than he should as a result.
However, whilst you might have some valid points, "don't like, don't read" is an entirely reasonable thing to say, ultimately. If you simply cannot stand something about his story that is fundamental to it, then he is clearly not going to change it for your benefit. That applies to any author. In that case, "don't like, don't read" is the only reasonable thing to say. No story can appeal to everyone
, and an author should not be expected to fundamentally adjust the story they're trying to tell to appeal to the majority.
Little point, as the person trying to disprove his interpretation, one used for creating a piece of fanfiction, it'd be up to you to find sources stating that his interpretation is incorrect, instead of the other way around. Fanfiction at its core involves making something up, after all, whether it's a story or a whole bunch of stuff.
That being said, full stop on this. I get the feeling that if it's not reined in now, it'll devolve down into something very personal and unwanted by everyone.
Yeah, it seems to be heading that way....
So Magos's post? It's the last one on this particular subject. We're done, right here and right now. Everyone move on and talk about something else.
Well, I didn't notice your post and I'm not deleting mine after I wrote it but, yeah, I suggest we stop here....
