  • One of my least favorite troupes is the "The badguy barely got away" troupe. My reasoning? It's always for some banal reason that they manage to do so. "He swung his sword but tripped on his own feet so the badguy got away." or "The wyvern dodged his bullets and the main character forgot that he was friends with a dragon that was flying overhead so the badguy got away."

    However, there is a book with the badguy barely got away troupe that I like. I especially like the reason that the badguy got away. If the reason that the badguy got away is because the badguy was an extra bad guy I actually enjoy it. For instance, the "take the form of someone the mc loves for in order to retaliate while the mc hesitates in order to escape".

    Whenever an antagonist escapes for a stupid reason that is perfectly avoidable or lazy as crap ie: "The villain is surrounded, there is nowhere to run. I charge at him, ready to strike him down, but he sidesteps my attempt. (He is not being attacked by everyone else even though) he is actively burning people alive. He then runs away even though he was surrounded." (Then they give the readers some henchman as amends)

    ...I become extremely irritated and throw the book away regardless of how much I had enjoyed the book previously.
    The world society on the green planet sits serene and happy. Suddenly a shooting star moving faster than light shoots into the bedroom of a young man and enters his body.

    I should write a cultivation novel about a guy with a system that is completely worthless or detrimental.

    I can't believe that of all these nerds, only Avidro got that joke.
    Reading a synopsis:
    Blah blah blah *Chinese name* *adversity*. Blah blah blah *revenge* *cultivate*. blah blah blah *heaven defying*. blah blah blah *peerless*.
    Looks like another wuxia/xuanhuan~
    I saw someone say that the opposite of love is indifference, but I have to disagree. Love is a high level of positive attention, while indifference is no attention. Meanwhile hate is a high level of negative attention. I'd say that hostile ignorance is a more accurate term for the opposite of love. (I don't know of any British toast toppings, but if there were any, I'd hate them.)

    Hate and love are both way too vague, as far as concepts go. Like they cover so much potential ground. There is a massive difference between loving a cheeseburger and loving your pet, for example. Likewise there is a massive difference between hating a public figure and hating your neighbor's dog.

    We need more words for the different kinds of love and hate!

    My definitions still apply. But to address your point, the ancient Greeks had words for love.... But I think hate, if used literally, is the state of thought that causes you to wish the end of the object of your hate.

    How kawaii are you on a scale of 1 to 10?

    That depends on what you mean by "How kawaii are you on a scale of 1 to 10?".
    If you are referring to how cute I am- uuh, I don't know, 5? 6? I'm an adult and very immature, so probably not very, but I am polite most of the time...
    If you are referring to how I react to cute things: 7.

    I thought of this in a dream:
    Today is yesterday's tomorrow.
    Today is tomorrow's yesterday.
    Tomorrow is yesterday's todays from now.
    I retract all previous recommendations of youtube channels. Have a nice day.

    You can't trust arsenic. Why would you trust someone with arsenic?

    Don't you have family out in the sticks? Arsenic is an ingredient in rat poison. I would guess it would be fairly common for someone to own arsenic. Once more the trust would have to be built upon actions the individual takes.

    I'm genuinely tired of all these harems in the fantasy genre. So irritating. It's almost like the authors have never met a female in their entire lives.
