Would anyone choose Alison? Really? This is a RIDICULOUSLY COOL gifset though. If you aren’t watching this…watch it…it’s on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
What do you mean, “would anyone choose Alison”? Alison is fucking a+ awesome with her brittle broken awesome self and her access to weapons and her ability to use both knitting and glue gunning as an active threat. My love for Alison is intense. I also have a lot of feels about Beth. Oh Beth. Beth beth beth beth beth. Beth.
ALISON IS MY FUCKING FAVORITE AND FUCK YOU FOR INSINUATING A SOCCER MOM COULDN’T BE ANYONE’S FAVORITE
My problem isn’t that she’s a soccer mom it’s that she’s A BAD PERSON. I live deep in my shows and when someone does something unforgivable, I don’t forgive them. It actually worries me that so many people seem to sympathize with her actions (or lack thereof.)
As far as who’s the most interesting character, Alison might very well win, but she’s not awesome.
I really don’t think we can label characters as a bad person when the situation is not one that is very likely to occur um ever and it’s complicated.
Guess what if Allison was a dude it’s unlikely she would be labeled as a bad person. Because guys get to do shitty things.
Walter White had a very similar moment, and that’s the moment I stopped watching Breaking Bad.
Our culture has been obsessed with anti-heroes since The Soprano’s and I guess I’m just a little sick of it. I’m tired of glamorizing murderers and manipulators.
Murder isn’t a character flaw.
I think I’m just going to ignore the argument for not watching shows where the characters are “bad people,” by your definition, because it’s so incredibly insane. Good luck finding anything to watch.
*SPOILERS BEGIN NOW* Are we just going to completely ignore the fact that Sarah shot Helena at the end of season one? We are? Okay…
As for Alison being a horrible person for not saving Aynsley… Please tell me what show you’re watching because Aynsley was a suspected MONITOR - even though that didn’t end up being true, everything was extremely coincidental and until the end of the episode, I’m sure you thought she was her monitor too. It’s not like Alison walked in, called her a bitch, and shot her dead in the face for no reason. Monitors are a threat, they are the people who are making it possible for Leekie and the others to control their lives. When Alison let Aynsley die, yes, there may have been some animosity about other things between them, but it was ultimately an act of self defense. And if defending yourself isn’t a good enough excuse, I assume you think Katniss Everdeen is a homicidal maniac. </spoilers>
Lastly, please tell the Loki fanbase that “bad” characters aren’t worthy of being favorite characters.
