Alright. I hate to do this because it feels lame and like a cop out, but I'm going to formally suspend my TV2 associated critiques. The simplest reason for it is that TV2 just doesn't engage me from a critiquers perspective. Let me explain. It's well written, the characters are interesting, don't get me wrong; I just don't particularly feel like reading too much into it, if that makes sense? Like, approaching TV2 characters is approaching something I wasn't personally invested into. I wasn't there, I didn't witness the meta culture that surrounded what happened in those posts, and I can barely construct it if at all from what OOC content for TV2 does exist. That's personally a big part of it for me, and without that my critiques feel empty and lacking to me personally and I don't particularly enjoy it.

Like, I guess my point is since I wasn't there I don't quite care enough to really get into it like I feel I should as a critiquer. Reading an RP as is can be a bit difficult for me due to the shifting narrative styles from post to post and the sometimes awkwardly forced caesuras caused by arbitrary post-to-post breakage. Like I like reading the occasional TV2 character casually but really digging into it requires a passion for the character that really isn't there if I don't share the RP world with them.

AKA, would critique V6, really don't want to critique anything else because I don't have the same analytical hype for them.

So, assuming people still care for the idea of a critique from me after this asinine stunt I'm going to gather some V6 characters. I'm following them all at least loosely as is, but when they die they'll then be slated to formally receive a critique from me. Slam, you're first on deck if you want to transfer Nate over. In case I ever change my mind I'm maintaining the TV2 characters in their queue, but it is very unlikely I will ever return to them.

I'd still love to get your thoughts. Does this mean I have to wait for Nate to bite it, though?

Yep! I've decided against doing predictions mostly because my tenure here so far has proven I'm way better at hindsight than foresight.
