Just as happens in the real world, he could be the most upstanding statesman since George Washington and he'd get slammed by the left for being racist/closed minded/anti-kittens.
SailorPtah wrote:Yes, that definitely sounds like a moral I would write into a story! Considering all that pro-conservative stuff I write IRL, don'cha know. And it's not like I have reason to think of any conservative politicians as legitimately harmful to, say, women and/or queer people.
SailorPtah wrote:Okay, seriously, this is glorious. You are assuming so much about a character you haven't even heard speak yet, who for all you know is only getting included so I can file the serial numbers off of some of my character!Colbert fic and pass it off as BICP side stories later on.
The lines about "I've come to expect better from you than writing [plot twist I don't want to see]" are kind of obnoxious and head-patting, but the rest? Golden.

SailorPtah wrote:Questions about the general properties and mechanics of Beings and Beinghood are fair game. Questions about individual Beings fall under the categories of plot points and character development, to which the answer will always be "read the story, and if it's important, you'll find out."
Klobb wrote:I like Xuanwu's theories, but I'm also perfectly willing to believe that the author might just want to portray a conservative as evil. (I'm not familiar with any of her previous work, so I don't really know what to expect from her) Not that there's anything really wrong with that: I don't read a work expecting the author not to have opinions. It doesn't keep me from enjoying the work as a whole if it happens to imply that my religious faith or political stance is made up entirely of heartless bigots. "Yes, I'm slightly offended that you put a live scorpion in my food, but you're such a wonderful cook, I'll eat it anyway." (Eventually I am going to hire someone to hit me with a hammer every time I start to use a metaphor. Until then...)
