I don't think I was being too edgy or disgusting this time but yeah, that is usually me. I don't like anything about the character or what they've done with her, I could ignore it for a while between the seasons, but now that she's part of the regular cast, god help us, I like to shitpost about hating her. I don't ACTUALLY want the show to turn into baby snuff porn; I just wish they hadn't gone the creepy fetish infantilism route with the character so that babby Meteora wouldn't exist at all. Literally the first scene with her as a baby in Skooled from a promo a while back was the first sign to me that this plot was going nowhere good.
I find Heinous getting more or less killed and then possibly, since they've hinted it, retaining her memories anyway, and also being a baby and doing typical gross baby shit in every second of her screentime, fucking sick and disturbing, honestly. And if it were played that way deliberately, then great, they're actually getting a really strong visceral reaction out of me about it.
Except they're obviously NOT trying to do that, so I just think it sucks. Everything about the character and the efforts to make her "cute" repulse me. Pretty much the only scenario in which it'd be even somewhat acceptable would be if they'd done the flashback in Skooled differently and didn't really show her again after being turned into a baby. So, like, maybe it'd still be "disturbing" if you think about it, but it also wouldn't be in my face.
But yeah I think it's just a really specific distaste I have for this plotline that I'm never gonna get over. I wish they went more the Ludo route with this character and less the baby route.>>106533097
Maybe if it weren't done forcibly I'd also be somewhat more open to it. Just by the way the episode played it out it was GOING to be, but say it went that she ended up completely broken down and only Eclipsa could get through to her and then finally says she wishes she could start over etc.
