It's not a hard-on, it's just a strong fondness for a character who happens to be pretty boss. To the point of possible arousal.
Kidding aside, I hope you don't go so far as to make him a black-and-white, mustache twirling villain. The fact that you refer to him as an "antagonist" sometimes makes me worry that nobody will agree with him and that everyone will hold the opposite opinion, making him a strawman-villain. I really don't mind where the character goes, or even if he has no friends, but please tell me you're not going the whole "I am full of myself but all of my opinions are wrong. Always. And nobody agrees with me ever." route. Sorry for ranting, but I'm just curious as to what you'll do for him.
It was mentioned in the stream, in an offhanded sort of way that didn't even mean anything in particular. And stop taking everything as an insult or disguised put-down.I simply said it in the slim chance that it could happen, because you've said yourself that you dislike cliched archetypes. Something like that wouldn't really devalue anything significantly, but it could be an oversight that most, including myself for that matter, don't catch until it's pointed out. I said I'm curious about what you'll do with him because I am. I am anxious to see what you do. But at the same time I wanted to make sure nothing had been overlooked because I am looking forward to this. I have made this very mistake numerous times before, and I know many others who have as well, which is why I thought it would be worth mention.
I never say anything with the intent to insult, demean, or devalue your work. At the most negative, the things I say are suggestions, personal dislikes and grievances, and criticism I would think you would appreciate (though I could easily be wrong). If I ever offend you, I would be more than happy to address it if you send me a note about why you were offended, and if I have actually say anything rude or uncalled for, I will be more than willing to apologize for you and ask for forgiveness. As such, I would ask if you would, please, if you ever feel that I have done something offensive, not simply imply that I have done such in a comment and rather be direct and let me properly apologize and ask for forgiveness for my rude behavior.
That said, I am sorry that I came off as underestimating you, your talent, and/or your story/character writing ability.
Like I said on the stream before, it's tough since you sorta tread on this line that can be hurtful, yet it's not malicious or intentional.
Just have faith in that I know what I'm doing with my own project. I'd understand if I was handling your characters or story, and would actually encourage feedback and pointers for character behaviors, but this is mine, remember? It's like if you see dog chasing a squirrel. If you go and catch the squirrel then give it to the dog, you've just gone and kinda ruined it all.
All I want to add is that some of the things you say are pretty harsh as well. I know it may make me seem like a terrible hypocrite, but I still hope you can take my suggestion and be a little more outright with the fact that you are offended. I know that saying this will likely just cause problems, but I really needed to get that off my chest. Sorry.
