I'm not really sure about the title.
Essentially, despite being super homophobic he gets involved with a group of sjw in hope of sending the ghost away out of disgust.

Just that one faggot who shows up in every DoA thread. The one who claims he's not Willis yet spends hours defending him against even the most innocuous of criticisms.

>definitive endings
Yeah like that one time Willis actually ended short packed with leaving it on a shitty ending. Also remember how Joyce is still not over being raped or maybe she is. We'll find out in a year or two when Willis addresses this for three strips and then ignores it again.
>>
Can anyone give me some context and/or a tl;dr into what the hell is going on there and why I should give a damn?
>>
So obnoxious "btw im lesbean" is here to stay and will end up ruining the only decent character in Joyce due to constant interaction? Neat.

Also how can he act like a lesbian getting a happy ending is a new thing when he literally gave the character LES BEAN the happiest possible ending (married true love who was only lesbian for her and then they were capable of having kids due to science) in Shortpacked?

So, it really does boil down to "Becky's my pet character, so fuck you toedad" doesn't it?

And the sad thing is that he thinks that he's being progressive by doing this. Willis literally doesn't understand that 'stories putting in contrived shit to keep the new romance intact' is shit whether it's a straight couple or a gay couple.

And he's so proud of it. Proud of dehumanizing the people who brought up his precious Joyce (and I still don't get how such a toxic, enclosed community could produce 'best waifu' Joyce). Proud of shoving the impracticality of Amazi-Girl in our faces instead of addressing that Amazi-Girl is an unhealthy extension of Amber's psyche (also, fuck you, giving the borderline schizophrenic another chance to revel in fantasy is not a good thing). And goddammit, I bet he set up Becky/Dina just so he could justify that 'Clever Girl' bullshit, because, yeah, Toedad's going to quote Jurassic Park in the middle of scattered religious diatribes.

Screw you, Willis. Screw you for using minorities to shadowbox your parents.
>>
Actually rereading this, Joe is really fucking funny. Willis is pretty good with banter when he's not soapboxing.
>>
>stories bend over backwards with supernatural zeal to keep straight folks happy and together with whatever love interest they met five minutes ago

what the shit is he even talking about here, stories about straight couples that end in heartbreak are common as dirt

unless fucking disney is your standard for romantic storytelling
>>
>>77708458
Yeah, the most historic and famous love story of all time ended with everyone happy.

Who can forget the ending of Romeo and Juliet where they tell their parents to fuck off and become scientists?

Or the ending to one of the highest grossing movies of all time where Jack and Rose escaped the Titanic and had dozens of babies together.
>>
>>77706803
>often in fiction bad stuff happens to gay ladies and then the narrative gives up on them
Huh?
>>
>>77706803
The funny thing is that, it's not like he hasn't had a character with homophobic parents in the comic since it's inception. I mean, Ethan's character in DoA is basically 'boy it sucks to be gay, doesn't it'

So it's not about letting the gay person be happy, is it Willis? It's about giving the gay person a punching bag that they can pound into submission
>>

I think he's about 20-30 years behind in terms of media. There was a period once society stopped hating gays or trying to pretend they didn't exist (or just using them for comic relief) when there were a lot of BAD END films/books about how society destroyed gay people and their relationships by being a bunch of bigoted/ignorant/violent/rapey cunts, with the moral of the story being "Maybe don't be cunts to gay people because they're people as well, m'kay?"

The thing Willis might be overlooking here is that a lot of those stories were based on true events or the actual experiences of gay people. I've got a feeling saying "bad stuff happening to gays in fiction is such a cliché" might backfire on him.

This is why I hate Tvtropes.

It makes autists care not about executing well, but about checking off boxes to craft fiction.

Yes, crushing a naive girl is "Break The Cutie", but you shouldn't think of it like that, you should reach "Break The Cutie" somewhat organically.

When you write with tropes in mind you're very likely to be a complete fucking faggot whose characters and plot seem robotic and forced
>>
>>77708740

That's the problem with echo chambers. It's the same thing regarding how they view videogames not being inclusive to women. They lose perspective of what's going on in the outside world because they're convinced that they know it all.

Anyone have this capped? The only thing that holds my interest about Willis is what a desperately sick man he is.

>Ross(Toedad) shows up

>Some idiot thought telling Amazi-Shit about this, so she chases after them
>Also Joyce and Sal are flying there as well
>Amber and Ross are the only ones actually injured outside of Joyce getting a broken hand, and even Amber just got a busted scalp
>Becky completely breaks ties off with Ross, tells him she's going to become a Scientist(c) and then flips him off
>The other cast members meet up at the hospital to discuss how they will NOT tell anyone about Becky staying on Campus illegally
>Joyce is still riding high from the adrenaline and calls her mom to tell her off(?), while also letting her know that Becky is staying on Campus illegally
>Joyce's mom calls right back, and lets her know that, even though she's horrified by what Ross did, she understands it because he was just trying to protect his daughter
>Joyce is broken and a complete mess

So to clarify? Becky, the girl who was kidnapped and in a fucking high speed car chase, is barely even phased by anything that just happened, but Joyce is probably forever fucked.
>>

Also Becky is a time machine away from being Homers description of an ideal Poochie.

>>
Enough of this lesbian pandering shit. Get some new fucking material, tumblr.
>>
>>77710113
Not even that she wasn't phased, but you can literally cut out the scenes with her father in it and her character doesn't change at all.

She makes a joke about being a lesbian, makes a giant grin, then says something 5o randum. Cutting her father out of her life might as well not have happened, it seemed to matter so little in the story.

What's weird is that Willis has handled dickhead parents better before. The whole thing in Shortpacked with Ambers Dad dying and her never getting the chance to show she was actually someone even after he treated her like dirt, robbing that final victory from her.
>>
>>77710183
How about a webcomic about a traveling circus troupe that also fights demons and other supernatural shit?

Then it's really more the autist's fault than TV Tropes fault.
>>
>>77710210
Circus troupes are fucking lame.
>>
>>77710197
Yeah but Shortpacked was also a bit farther back, he may have been less crazy, or at least less willing to show it, back then.

Gotta' admit though it was pretty good watching Amber tell random fucks how much of an asshole shitbag her dad was.

That's even more horrifying, what if they both boys, I fear for there future no matter what gender?

Those trips confirm it.
>>
This was from just over three years ago by Willis. The resolution to a storyline that had been around since near enough the beginning of Shortpacked (around 8 years prior to this strip).

His resolution to both evil-dad stories in DoA has been to beat them up and either spit on them or flip them off.

He's not going crazy or SJW or whatever people are saying, he's really just becoming more and more bitter towards his past, and it is very akwardly apparent in his writing. I'm not seeing a girl overcoming her oppressive father, I'm seeing a fully grown man lash out at his parents through a comic because he can't bring himself to do it in real life. It's just uncomfortable to read.
