    I was poking at omake stuff and realized the unethical teacher in my Akun quest is more of a self-insert for me than the protagonist is. Her current goal is grooming the protagonist into the next recipient of her 'wisdom', which involves abandoning 'traditional' ethics for rational self-interest and also hypnosis.

    I have a Thing for teachers for...some reason. I never see them in quest premises though, even on QQ where you'd think the rules on loli and such would allow it.

    There are threads for this sort of thing. The idea stuff. If you're actually checking for interest anyway. Most people ignore Profile posts.

    I mean, given the amount of stuff I have on my plate anyway, I'm not really. I'm just barking out into the ether because I need a place to write this shit down, and profile posts are as good an idea as any.

    Besides, I have friends who check profile posts. That's good enough for me. I'd have used those threads if I had interest in doing so, and it's not like profile posts do any harm.

    Yeah wasn't criticizing, just wasn't sure if you were actually interested in feedback, or well, what you already said.

    I know better than to ask 'is it good', but...what was it like?

    There's no magical hypnotism, just blackmail, threats, manuveuring, and powerplays that forcibly break students and remold them.

    The teacher helped a desperate ugly incelt get girl he likes by filming her BF beating him up and smoking on campus, and it delves into mindgames.

    I'm...well, I'm not sure I'd *like* it but that certainly sounds like the kind of thing I'd like to read for reference's sake.

    Manipulative characters like that are always interesting, something I like to write, and something I could always use more reference material for.

    I think it's bad writing because the teacher is too mysterious and this allows the author too many asspulls.

    It's a hard balance. Explaining too much about a character does ruin the intrigue, after a point...but you also want victories to feel earned, otherwise the audience shuts off like that.

    It does help if there's a clear motivation. If it's the character who serves as the main POV, you kinda wanna know at least a bit of what they're doing it all for. Is it just all...revelations with no prior basis?

    Explaining motivations is a low brow way to do that. In actuality, doing that did nothing for the story. It's more that if there is an infallible supply of asspulls, that is fine. It just shouldn't be relied upon, and never the first option.

    But it's often the first and only option? Other than increasingly bs asspulls.
