when Doyle killed of Sherlock Holmes the reason he brought him back was pressure from the fans. Letters to him, his publishers, etc

and you're right, having then die didn't make the play terrible
the play does that all on its own


It was a bad analogy, but my point was that i don't think the existence of a fanbase, or popularity of a character should exclude a character from death or possibility of death. The tumblr crowd likes to make killing of likeable characters into some sort of unheard of travesty, which is simply not the case. The problem here isn't that they are disappointed by a character's death, its that they are pretending like they can "prove" why killing off characters as a concept is "bad writing" or "bad" in general. Just look at some of these threads, and you'll see page-long discussions about how these children are trying to rationalize arguments about the low quality of something that hasn't even come out.

Like i said earlier, tumblr has created a culture of obsession, one that can generate huge amounts of "feels" that just snowball into some sort of monster of irrationality. As we all know, people love irrational emotion-based arguments, and people latch onto that. This is the most easy-access way to get to all of these emotion-based arguments and jerk in that circle with them

I think Doyle made a wrong call and compromised the value of his story by bringing back Holmes, honestly.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=feels

A wave of emotions that sometimes cannot be adequately explained.

Short for feelings. Typically used when someone is fangirling/fanboying over something, or just saw something sad.

IMO "feel" and "squee" are the two worst internet words ever.

It's a blog hosting site with elements of social networking. Theoretically it can be used for any kind of writing, but it's mainly used for hysterical and annoying bi-sexual teenagers freaking out about how upset/offended a comic/cartoon/tv show/movie/whatever has made them and posting gifs about it.

That and porn.

It's hilarious.


"That and porn" also applies to the internat in general...

A noise primarily made by an over-excited fangirl, however it has spread rapidly and is now widely spread among the web community.
