As I mentioned a little over a week ago, I’ll only be answering questions publicly on Saturday mornings from now on. Well, Saturday “mornings.” Depends on when I wake up.
I just don’t like cluttering up my front page (or for my Tumblr followers, their dashboards) with lots of sarcastic…
See, I don’t think Ewan was ruined by what Alice did to him (like, have him wear a new shirt and meet more people. That’s it, by the way. What a monster of manipulation she is :O ). If anything, he has a typical villain origins story. You know, the power corrupted him but only because he was corruptible in the first place and all that.
I mean a good person to begin with wouldn’t have accepted to enter a program that meant alienating his old loyal nerd friends in exchange for better ones. Then a good person, even if suddenly popular, wouldn’t have dumped his girlfriend at a ball for the first hot girl. AND a good person, even if suddenly drunk on confidence, wouldn’t have described changing girlfriend as ‘LEVELING UP’. As if women were Pokémons.
People are threatening him on twitter with things like ‘once a nerd, always a nerd’ ‘you’ll go back to being nobody’ and I’m like ???? being a nerd was definitely not a shameful trait of his life. It’s not like he was, I don’t know, a homeless alcoholic who beat his wife. Actually, being a nerd who can dress and is hot face-wise often means you’ll be 90% popular with girls as soon as you mention SuperMario.
No, what he is is a JERK. And that’s the shameful trait of his life. And if he wakes up from the daze of stardom once his Cool friends dump him, and regrets his actions, he will still be the sexist jerk who left Alice via twitter. His actions should in no case be excused or justified with a ‘it’s because Alice changed him’ or anything of the like. Women always end up taking responsibilities whenever men are dicks to them, and I hate it :(
In the end, okay, a series of events led him to become trash when he used to act like a nice person but. Some people get bullied in school and they become Severus Snape, other people get bullied in school and they become Captain America, so whatever the event that shakes your life is, how you react to it will define who you really are. And Ewan’s reaction was…not…good.
