VGmaster9 Posted October 30, 2016 Share Posted October 30, 2016 I'm sure we all hate certain writing clichés used in various fictional media. What are some that you personally hate? Here's my list. - When an important or intimate scene get's blatantly interrupted - Characters with no backstory, development, or depth who are made to be unlikeable just for the sake of being unlikeable - When an above character gets away with his unlikeableness for dumb writing reasons - A misunderstanding whether it be with a friend or a mate, and eventually them getting back together - When a character starts being a massive douche for little to no reason, and then later apologizes - There being no resolution for the above two - Cliffhanger fake outs, which are notorious in webcomics. It's when there's a cliffhanger at the end of a page, and people think something is going to happen. Then on the next page, it's totally different from what anyone was expecting and ends up being downright pretentious. - The main character apologizing (or doing something of the like) to an unlikeable character when they have no reason to, yet the latter character doesn't accept it and still being a douche. It doesn't add any development to the character and makes them look even worse. - When you have to feel sorry for a certain antagonist, even though he wasn't given any redeeming factor - When a character has to keep a promise, then it leading to all sorts of dumb drama. A similar situation where the character has to make a choice whether to do this or that, either one creating drama. - When the main character is trying to tell people something, and nobody believes them. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
