If a part part of an official fandom wants to see the main character be the bad guy so bad, that the author extra adds a bad version of the main character in the series, is this a sign that the author made something right or wrong?
God I couldn´t have wrote that question more weird than that, could I?
Well, he was fan made and then just “acknowledged” by the creator.
I don’t think I’d call it a mistake. He’s fan-service definitely. The more I analyzed his purpose and read other people’s two cents about it, the more I liked him. It’s tough for me to say, because where there are infinite possibilities inside the catbox, that means it is perfectly logical for him to exist, but at the same time…
The detective cannot be the culprit….
But in this fragment, his purpose is not detective. It is to take the blame for her and hide the truth inside the catbox for eternity. Someone said in their headcannon that they believe he understands her better than the real one, which I can see, too.
At the end of the day though, I look at him as this fandom’ s Beyond Birthday (Death Note)
They’re both “BB”
They are both fanmade and acknowledged by the original creators.
They are both sadistic versions of their counter parts (Battler and L)
Both their counterparts play the role of “detective”
They both have a childlike fascination with the destruction and deconstruction of the human anatomy.
I could go on and on, but that wouldn’t help answer your question. In the world of Umineko, though, there’s too many possibilities.
In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with his presence. In fact, the theory was bound to pop up eventually in the series somehow.
Well that was not really what i was trying to say.
I don´t mind that he is fan-service at all.
At least he´s not the kind of fan-service that´s all about, well you know… (even though he has sides like these as well)
Unfortunately there is way too much evidence against him and it´s not only the detective part.
But yes he does fit perfectly into teh fandom since there is an infinite amount of forgeries that back him up and since there are endless possibilities in the catbox which is still closed.
I know the headcanon you are talking about, the one with him hiding the truth inside and taking the blame. Im the one who wrote it.
Im happy to see that at least one person likes my headcanon xD
I saw these similarities as well.
Kinda interesting actually.
But what i was trying to ask is, if you write a character and people want him to be bad, is that character a well written character or a bad written character? Or maybe both?
Or what is the factor that makes someone want to change a good written character into something else?
Like is it maybe even a sign of good written characters?
Like people like them that much that they want them as an evil counterpart?
Or is the suspicion that big?
Do people want to see the good guy turning into the bad guy, just because people are like this?
What is the secret to make people want to see the good guy turn into the bad guy?
As for me I liked the thought of Battler beeing the culprit, because I think it fits a bit in his character. Battler can be a pretty dark character from time to time, he is not as stupid as he sometimes behaves and he sometimes is pretty deep about things.
But is this what makes someone want to see the good guy turning into the bad guy?
