IN DEFENSE OF ARADIA MEGIDO: A defense post by Tumblr user destroythepast (contains spoilers)

I should note, to start off with, that “controversial” might not be the correct word for Aradia. A better term would be “unpopular”. She’s been my favorite character for a very long time now, and the amount of people who dismiss her completely is really kind of upsetting to me.

So here’s what I hear about Aradia on a constant basis: "She’s so boring!" And that is, in my humble opinion, simply not true. Allow me to explain.

Aradia goes through a number of transformations over the course of the story, but for a good chunk of it, she was a nearly-emotionless ghost (and, later, robot). A lot of people think her apathy made her boring, but I disagree strongly.

For one thing, even when she’s apathetic and depressive, she’s snarky and witty. A lot of her interactions are pure gold. And while she may not be especially expressive, it’s clear that the old Aradia (who was only seen in flashback) is still in there somewhere—she tells Sollux she’d like to see him happy (and hugs him before blowing up) and outright calls Karkat her friend, and shows several times that she doesn’t take crap from anyone. 

Additionally, even through the apathy, she’s interesting. She destroys things out of sheer boredom. She’s manipulative in a number of ways and clearly has her own agenda.

And then she goes God Tier, and becomes the person she was before dying—cheerful and morbid and a bit off-kilter. She’s happy to be truly alive again, to feel things and have real hope for the future. She’s gone through more shit than anyone should have to deal with in a lifetime over the course of around thirteen years, and she still smiles. (You can’t look me in the face and tell me there’s nothing beautiful about that.)

And yet at the same time, so many things about her are the same! She still revels in destruction, she’s still fixated on death, she still cares deeply about her friends, and she still has no tact whatsoever.

Aradia is a wonderful, deeply-layered, important, and interesting character, and seeing her thrown under the bus so often is just so saddening to me.

  • fake dating
  • SECRET dating
  • being locked in a room or trapped in a small space
  • huDDLING FOR WARMTH
  • BEING ON THE BRINK OF ADMITTING THEIR FEELINGS FOR EACH OTHER BUT THEN GETTING INTERRUPTED
  • finishing each other’s sentences, KNOWING WHAT THE OTHER IS ABOUT TO SAY
  • tou chi NG!!!! FOr eheA DS!!!!!!11!!
  • wearing each other’s clothes
  • doing that thing where they accidentally get real close and, like, stare meaningfully at each other for a few seconds too long
  • channeling the inner romcom and having an epiphany about how much they care about each other and RACING TO CONFESS THEIR LOVE
  • fucking. Now or Never Kiss
  • HEIGHT DIFFERENCES
  • defending each other to scathing tertiary or otherwise minor characters but ONLY WHEN THE OTHER ISN’T AROUND
  • reincarnation or time loop or OOOOH TIME TRAVEL SCENARIOS
  • dramatically saving each other from certain death or barely surviving something that almost makes the other break down and just smirking wearily and mumbling flippant smartass remarks to HIDE THE DEPTH OF THEIR FEELINGS
  • undercover as lovers, the classic
  • ALMOST KISSING. like getting so close that they start to close their eyes and hold their breath and then SOMETHING HAPPENS and they jump apart, that is MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY ACTUAL KISSING
  • casually sitting on each other’s laps during ensemble cast conversations or scenes
  • did i mention F AKE DATinG

Yep

ranting about a dumb thing that i keep getting bothered about that pops up in the whole dashcon debacle

can we please stop with the whole “EWWW BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AND TOM HIDDLESON ARE SO GROOOSSSS IDK WHY THESE FANGIRLS ARE SO CRAZY ABOUT THEIR FUCKIN ~BRITISH CHEEKBONES~ LOL HOW STUPID”

hey guys

if these celebs were ladies we would immediately recognize this as a bit shit. there are good reasons to critique people and there are good reasons to dislike celebrities and there are even good reasons to look down on people who defend said celebrities.

"i don’t like their face" is not one of them

people are allowed to like different aesthetics than you do

when the celebs being talked about have repeatedly commented that they find it amazing anyone thinks they are attractive and how they consider themselves quite ugly in a way that betrays their lack of self-esteem, you aren’t doing any brave attack in the name of justice by agreeing with their self-hatred

you just are telling people you are really petty and cannot fathom people liking things you don’t personally like and if someone dares to be something you don’t like they should be mocked for it

by all means hold up rabid fans who send death threats as a demonstration of what is ridiculous, by all means talk about how shit actors have done is problematic, etc

but every time you reblog something that is “i hate this actor because i think he’s ugly, ewwww”

you lose a lot of my respect tbqh

you’re better than that. you can be, and you should be, better than just mocking someone relentlessly because you don’t like how their face looks. you should hate someone for more reasons than ‘i do not find their facial features aesthetically pleasing’. because you know what that says to me? to this ugly kid sitting here typing this? it says that if you got a chance, you would mock ME in just the same way.

so don’t do it please.

Yeas THIS!

I personally did like seeing Cumberbatch when i first saw the show because to me it was a sign “Yes you don’t have to match idealized criteria to have recognized what you can do”  “You can be ugly and still have success/reach people”  but seeing people complain about “how can u like dis so ugly” and then reblog a post à la “love yourself don’t let ppl tell u otherwise”?

Now every time I see a post like this I think “yeah but except you don’t like the person, then it is A okay to bash their appearance” *rolls-eyes*

I mean by now Cumberbatch probably doesn’t give any fucks if ppl think he’s ugly or not but you know who these posts actually hurt?  Other people who have issues with their appearance. 

I remember people pointing out valid reasons to dislike Cumberbatch but I can’t even remember what they were because most posts concerning him are just about how ugly is and that he looks like an Alien.

Like yeah thanks for reminding me that you’d rather criticize how I just happen to look than actual valid crit. points.  You’d rather complain and complain pages long about my face than about if I’m sexist or racist or some other actual bad shit.

i know right??? it’s just like WOW THANKS FOR INFORMING ME THAT YOU THINK IT’S OK TO CONSTANTLY BASH SOMEONE BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE THEIR APPEARANCE THAT SURE IS A COMFORT TO MY UGLY SELF

it’s a really really gross thing that keeps popping up more and more and i really hate it
