Most of the art in these threads looks fine to me. Don't know why you're so upset considering I recognize many of the artists being posted and can confirm they're Asian. And even if they aren't, who cares as long as the art isn't totally terrible? So please stop dragging the thread down with your unsolicited complaining then digging yourself deeper when annoyed people call you out on it.

I wish fandom didn't constantly feel the need to shoehorn Prompto into the position of insufferably saccharine tragic ingenue when he's nothing like that at all. He can stand up for himself, and he might act like a doofus but he doesn't actually have the mind of a child. It's tiring seeing his hardcore "fans" constantly portray him as some perpetually crying damsel waiting to be rescued by Noctis (Ignis and Gladio who?) because they think he's too fragile to even wipe his own ass without getting the vapors. Did we even play the same game?

You don't need to add anything after this.
I don't hate him, but sometimes I feel like tumblr fandom can be renamed into "Prompto and friends".

Holy shit, seconded. This is something that has really started to bother me about the fandom. Nothing against Prompto because I adore him, but favoring Gladio, Ignis and Noctis basically means you get shafted out of most content or they get turned into accessories to fuel the wooby angst-fest a lot of Prompto-centric ship fans seem to strive off of.

Yeah, the gulf in mean quality on that meme between prompts for Prompto and prompts for anything else is pretty dire. Doubly so if he's being shipped with Noctis or Ardyn, though the Prompto x Ignis and x Gladio ones are surprisingly, usually not that ridiculous.
>request after samey sounding request of weepy pregnant omega Prompto (tbf most of the ABO requests are already garbage but he gets a TON of them)
>literally 10+ Prompto x Ardyn requests in a row one right after another, and even just telling them to at least wait between them got shouted down by angry Prompto fans
>all those horrible tl;dr requests for Pity Sue Prompto whose adoptive parents would whore him out, treat him like an animal, or beat him until he died
>asking for the Chocobros and other characters to be portrayed as way bigger jerks than they are in canon (even Noctis, which makes me wonder why they like shipping them together that much if that's how they see him), aside from Cor who has the opposite problem of being exaggerated into a saint

You perfectly summarized current state of kinkmeme.
Also:
>Prompto in these requests is barely Prompto himself and it's painfully obvious how author of prompt pushed him in the place of Luna, Noctis or %insert character name%

Ships with Noctis and Ardyn are the worst offenders. And, honestly, Ardyn might be an asshole, but I'm so sick of him being reduced into mindless rape-machine.

Oh god, I stopped coming to the kink meme right around when Episode Prompto dropped because I was afraid this was going to happen. Guess it did.
And yes, I agree that Ardyn-rapes-Prompto is so tired at this point. At least Ardyn x Noctis noncon fics and requests tend to involve some kind of resistance and mental fuckery that makes things interesting. Ardyn x Prompto fics don't have that complexity and usually just go straight for the bodice ripper crap. It's so boring.

What's especially pernicious is that Promptis is a low-hanging fruit type of ship, like SasuNaru. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad ship in principle, when I first got the game I adored it, but it suffers terribly from being popular with casual fans who know little about the game but see pictures of these cute yaoi boys acting yaoi together, jump onboard for the superficial aspects, then when they finally get around to watching/playing the game everything is filtered through that horribly warped shipping lens, which leads to a self-reinforcing cycle of people portraying Prompto massively OOC and successive iterations of fujos who are primarily exposed to fanon Promptis thinking that's what the two are actually like and repeating it in their own poorly researched crap.

Hence all the ridiculous AUs which are just generic yaoi archetypes melodramatically falling in love with Noctis and Prompto's names but IN SPACE, as Romeo and Juliet, Magic Winged Soulmates, or other such stock romance setups that never even try to be in character and treat the world and the rest of the cast as superficial flavor elements.

The subfandom that's sprung up around Niflheim Prince Prompto AUs is especially bad because it's a genuinely fascinating what-if when explored properly. But it almost always ends up as nothing more than a transparent excuse to turn Prompto into a huge Mary Sue, achieve canon gay Lunanoctis without fixing any of the things that were actually wrong with it, or as a self-aware justification to portray him as a cringing uke stereotype (h-he's so weak and submissive because he was raised differently, you see?), except it comes from people who actually do know a decent amount about the game's lore yet refuse to do better with it.

It's utter nonsense, fampai, both thematically and logically. A big chunk of his fans are simply too pathetic to understand the characters who do have duties and responsibilities to fulfill (unlike them), so they project on one character who doesn't have them and make up shit from there.

All in all, the whole phenomenon is very simple at its core - immature, thoroughly average people secretly wishing they were the center of attention without having to earn it in any objective way. It's the same mentality that is spawning all the isekai garbage in Nipland, where useless beta self-inserts become the center of the universe for being "nice" and average.

All this talk about dumb things the FFXV fandom is guilty of reminds me of how the Voltron Netflix fandom has the exact same goddamn problem with Lance, especially since Lance is also a sharpshooter with self-confidence that he tries to compensate for with jokes, and the most popular ship in the fandom by a mile is between him and a naturally talented Asian looking guy.

The main difference being Promptis fans might whinge a bit about Ignoct being "problematic" but will not actually tell you to kill yourself or report you or Ray Chase to the FBI for being racist pedophiles for even joking about Ignoct. Nor will they hold confidential material hostage to try to blackmail Square to make it canon, then claim it was all a false flag staged by the Ignoctlluminati to make them look bad when it inevitably fails.

Wait really? How? People complaining about Gladnoct because of the second half I can get even if I think it's still stupid but I can't see how anyone would possibly justify calling Ignoct abusive.

I mean, as much as I hate people screaming ~~~problematic, it's not just that Noct is Ignis' boss, Ignis was literally raised since early childhood to serve Noct. He has apparently zero other hobbies or interests and it's fairly obvious that pretty much all of Ignis' self-worth is tied into Noct and his ability to serve Noct. IRL, yeah, that'd be a kinda suspect relationship.

Though saying that, I'm fairly sure the only times I have seen it called problematic or whatever was because Ignis is older or he advises/raised Noct or some bullshit.

They do have a somewhat abnormal relationship, but the thing is, it's entirely intentional. It's no coincidence that Ignis' minichapters in Ch10 are called 'The Hand of the King' and 'The Heart of the King". The two of them had been together since they could barely talk and became pretty much symbiotic, for better or worse.
Theirs was still the most honest and harmonic relationship among the four, so it seemed to be working fine for them.

Well, the complaints I've seen are way stupider than that, and it's that Ignis is '''''literally''''' Noctis's mother figure, this is the only correct interpretation of their relationship, and Ignoct shippers are evil because they're taking something sweet and pure and beautiful and perverting it into something "toxic" by promoting mother-son incest. There's also the "problematic age gap" argument that's oh so popular with Western fandoms these days, occasionally. Fortunately since almost everyone is 18+ there's no screeching about pedophilia except at the poor sods still shipping Noctis/Iris.

As for the people responsible, it's not exclusive to Promptis shippers. Sometimes it's Noctis/Luna fans, especially the ones who multiship Promptis, because for whatever reason similar patterns of crazy and character stanning tend to crop up in fans of both ships, even when they don't like each other. Sometimes it's Gladnis fans, who also believe that as the stand-in father figure Gladio is entitled to Ignis's love (see: Shallura shippers, who are almost identical except they're legitimately insane in that special Voltron fandom way). Of course that's not to suggest Ignoct doesn't have its own shitty fans, far from it, but in my experience their brands of toxicity usually manifest as straightforward, insufferable elitism and condescension towards other ships (a problem shared with certain Noctis/Luna fans), as opposed to relying on faux-SJ tactics to portray ship rivals as criminals.

Basically, antis are crazy, and anyone can come up with an excuse to say why a pairing they don't like is problematic because it's all rooted in meaningless ship was anyway.

>Ignis is '''''literally''''' Noctis's mother figure
Where did this even start? I remember that joke in game of course, but why did so many people take it so seriously?
>>
>>3141323

I really don't know. I saw the joke too, but ever since ep duscae where we learn that Ignis was the one enabling Noct's sneaking out, I always saw him as more partner-in-crime or brother, than parental figure.
>>
>>3141550
They joke about it good-naturedly once or twice in-game when Ignis nags too much ("What are you, my mother?"), but officially he's Noctis partner in-crime and confidant. Ultimania noted that they are "extremely close" (to the point Ignis was even programmed differently to make sure he stays close to Noctis during in-game battles) and Noctis himself notes that Ignis is a bit too fixated on him.
>Noctis: All these years, and you have never stopped worrying about me.
>Ignis: It is my job.
>Noctis: Your hobby.
They spent nearly 20 years together and Ignis witnessed everything about Noctis' turbulent life, so no wonder they grew very close. They were also supposed to rule together, though that ultimately never came to pass.
>>
Noctis is such husbando material.

Did Square Equinix invade my dreams and create such a perfect man from them?
>>
>>3141550
That's exactly how I saw it too. The age difference and relationship makes me think much more of a big brother than a mother figure, because I've literally been there with my own younger brother. If you absolutely have to be a moron and argue about how much morally superior you are for not shipping fake incest (which doesn't actually exist except in the minds of crazy antis, what a tautology), at least use something that makes sense.

Even more ridiculous is that the people who do this tend to also believe that by extension Gladio (pretty much everyone I've seen who does ships Gladnis on some level, whether as a main ship or a sideship) is a father figure to Noctis and that's why it's wrong to ship them or Ignoct are even more delusional. Noctis explicitly loves and respects his real dad is still thinking about him even after his death. Not to mention at the GDC talk it was explicitly mentioned that the writers saw Gladio and Noctis as another big bro-little bro duo.

To the surprise of probably nobody, most of the anti-Ignoct discourse tends to come from rival shippers who have a vested interest in shooting it down, particularly Noctis/Prompto and/or Gladio/Ignis fans. On rarer occasions, hardcore Noctis/Lunafreya fans who tend to hate just about everything to begin with, because muh canon ship and being aggressive white knights in general.

Now I like all four of these ships to some extent, but it's pretty obvious whenever this outrage comes up that it's all a cover for typical shipper fanbrat behavior. It's just more of people overly concerned with their OTPs are the only ones that are "valid" or "righteous" and deliberately twisting the characters around for the sake of them, even when it flagrantly contradicts the canon.

You also see it with the tinfoil hatters who insist that Prompto is faking being attracted to Cindy and Aranea to hide the fact that he's exclusively gay, gay, GAY ^_^ and canonically desperately in love with Noctis vice versa (because these cunts can't stand the idea of bisexuality). Or for an extra level of crinkly conspiracy goodness, that the writers actually did make Promptis canon, but homophobic higher-ups forced them to add hetero love interests to cover it up. Oh, and for next-level manufactured shiprage, that Luna and Cindy are canon lesbians and anyone who can't see that is a lesbophobe. Despite not actually giving a shit about femslash unless it's to slap down anyone who rejects the idea of canon Promptis.
