“I am no bird and no net ensnares me, I am a free human being with an independent will.”
I’ve hit 1K! Yay! I’m still deciding what to do x
I was checking through my stuff to be posted file and found this. I’ve made lots of this style of edit for Andromeda but I haven’t posted this one. I went off her as a character overall for quite a bit of time. As you probably know, Severus Snape is one of my favourite characters. His tag on Tumblr is often filled with anti posts and hate, as people seem to struggle to tag their hate properly which is a pain for people like me who want to look through the tag in peace. I noticed a new trend in which people would put down Snape by saying, why love Snape as positive Slytherin representation when you can love insert minor Slytherin character here? Andromeda was constantly mentioned in these posts, along with Narcissa and Regulus Black. I’d also regularly see posts in the Andromeda Black tag putting people down for preferring Bellatrix or Narcissa to Andromeda and putting people down for preferring Regulus to Sirius, and promoting this rhetoric that only characters on the side of the light deserved to be liked. It gets on my nerves when people try to character police people, so I ended up loving both Snape and Narcissa a lot more than Andromeda. Those posts put me off her as a character as I got fed up in general of feeling boxed into liking her character. A little tip: don’t let other people force you to like stuff, whether that’s fictional characters, books or anything else. What I think is you can like darker characters and be passionate about those characters. As long as you don’t condone yourself what the characters do. That’s a rule of thumb I stick to. If you’ve read this far in my small rant, great job x
