    Now I’m trying to imagine what Jodi’s film noir / furry fanfics would be like XD

  2. Oh Jody. Lay off the poor thing, she already had to deal with your slashfiction.

    Everyone would need a breather afterwards. Or a cigarette.

    Gonna be honest? I can’t put my finger on it, Jodi annoys the absolute crap out of me.

    Carmen Sandiego is at least trying to switch it up and make it harder to find her. Still can’t ditch the red trench and fedora. 🙂

    I second the “Jodi is annoying” motion. I really dislike people who snoop and stick their nose into other people’s personal lives. Stay out of my life plz.

    I really love the hat though.

    @Silv
    I know what you mean. She does not do anything bad or mean-spirited. She honestly cares about her friends and she is able to fight back in a battle of wits/words.

    So it’s hard to put a finger on it and WHY she somehow irks us wrong. I think for me it is, that she is too sure of herself. She is too proud of being weird.

    I think the easiest way to say it is: She’s “In your face”-geeky and on a personal level she reminds me of an extremely loud and annoying aquaintance i have.

    But it does not feel warranted and i actually feel bad for not being able to like her. But i just can’t do it. :/

    Ok. I think i was finally able to figure out something that irks wrong about Jodi.

    Take a look at the past 20 pages and tell me which character was the focus of the story. You would say “well it’s definitally Sarah”
    But by just browsing through the pages you realize that every panel Jodi is in, she takes the limelight.

    In this Panel Hadeed has an issue. But it’s Jodi that helps him first, Jodi that calls Ruth, Jodi that says Hmm and Jodi that wants to investigate.

    Maybe it’s the color of her hair, of her shirt. The contrast of both. But even if she is just on the side of a panel and not even saying something, she is the center of the readers attention. She extremely sticks out.
    Some sort of Personified Photobomb.

    I’m not saying that it is bad, but it might explain why people who don’t find her appealing think she’s annoying although she doesn’t do anything wrong (so far).

  9. Shinjischneider, I think you have it. I am weird myself, but while I hold to my freedom to be so, I do not push it very hard on people. She does. The center of attention point is good, too.

    Jodi is the obnoxious fan everyone has encountered. The kind of person who, while they may be very nice people, push all the wrong buttons in trying to make you like their fandom. As Shinji pointed out, these people are in your face, constantly telling you to like X. If you say you’re not interested or it’s not your thing, they take personal offence and redouble their efforts, not willing to accept that nobody else cares.

    Of course Jodi’s the center. She’s a fanfiction author, a culture that revolves heavily around reading and reviewing, a cluster of authors all checking each others work. A writing workshop is her natural habitat, she could probably run the entire thing if she wanted, and for that reason this kinda feels like her story as well.

    Jodi annoys the shit out of me because I know people like her in real life. Obnoxiously loud, has to be right, no tact, and tries really hard to inject her fetish into everything she does.
