Anyway, I came upon some dandy advice from Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park ...

Boring Heroes, Fun Villains

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 4, 2017



It’s something so often encountered and/or mentioned in stories (be they comics or novels or film) that it’s becoming in itself a cliché: Heroes aren’t interesting because they’re straight arrows. Villains are fun because they’re the ‘bad boys’, the ones that can do all ...

The Freewheelin' 2015

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Dec. 28, 2015



Two-thousand fifteen started off with Kroatz wishing everyone in the Drunk Duck forums “growth, satisfaction, and purpose, even if it comes with an almost equal amount of suffering and loss.” I do not believe any statement made in this last year comes as close to this to sum up the ...
