Durarara!! is the place where you kind of kin a character but also they're a massive shithead and you only really kinned then because aesthetics and you liked the color of their hair mostly to be honest so anyway that definitely didn't happen to me I definitely didn't kin Aoba this way what are you talking about

Listen I basically had no one to talk random shit about drrr with when I was big into it as a kid so now that someone else is here for it I'm :ablobcat_test3: :ablobcat_test3: :ablobcat_test3: :ablobcat_test3:

@dialupdoll @norikawa we are not causing any tumblr flashbacks today, understood?

Given the extrodinarily high failure rate of Just About 100% you'd think people would stop but alas

Instead they just [checks notes] make an entire stables worth of alternate versions of the characters that are somehow different in some way somehow which require their own wiki to keep track of and then just ship those "new" characters instead

Sometimes (literally I have seen One Singular Example among the dozens and dozens that exist) it even kind of works!

People really watch Durarara, see Izaya Orihara, go "I can fix him" and then write a 45 chapter long fanfic in which they basically completely change his backstory to try to excuse his shittiness so that way they can feel good and ok about having him and Shizuo be gay to each other

Actually happened by the way, funniest possible timeline

Narita: no I will instead write porn of Shizuo and Izaya 69ing

Why does that man look like a shark? Why does that kid look like a cat? Why is the gang's theme "shark" and not just "blue"? Why aren't they called something with shark in the name? Why are they the "blue squares" like where'd the square part come from?

In drrr!! why'd they decide to make a guy that looks like a shark not be in the shark gang but instead have a guy that looks like a cat in it

Sorry if it's a bit long of posts, again, Vyvanse brain

Idk I'm just Vyvanse braining my way through being wordy about something that I'm happy can happen here

It's like the space we've carved out here is built on such foundations that there isn't any concern about moving instances being taken as somehow indicatibg you have bad feelings towards your current one.

Like it's at such a point that there have been times where someone is looking to move away from EFDN, and they come to me for instance recommendations! Like that feels like such a nice to be able to happen here, that things are such that people don't hesitate or have concerns with asking me about places to switch from EFDN to! That's a really comfy feeling to have happening.

Obviously there are times when people move instances for reasons that do involve some kinda shittiness but I'm saying that specifically when people move instances just becuase they want to, without any shittiness going on, I haven't seen anyone getting angry or all too upset about it which is good I think!
