I do not want them to change who they are. I simply suspect that there is untapped potential. Context my friend, context! Regardless, this is more of me being an optimist if anything. I blame copius amounts of musical theater for that trait. It suits me well and I have no intention on changing anytime soon.
Also, thanks for the link to the B movie! Might be worth a few chuckles if I can find time to watch it. If you happen to have some more time than I do though, I sincerely reccomend the book Candide. It's a short novel of social criticism by Voltaire. I enjoyed it myself, and found it's arguements to be rather poignant. Look up at the library if you get the chance.
I understand what you meant Birdy51, the point of me linking the movie in response to your post (which is actually a biography of a famous historical B-movie director, by the creator of The Nightmare Before Christmas
) is that often people are not "full of untapped potential", so that actually what you expect to happen with the lore of LoL is (in my view) probably impossible, you are expecting the artists to develop beyond their interest or scope of artistic approach into something that they can never be.
Candide (as you may realize) is a social satire meant to demonstrate that optimists are idiots.
I am not sure why you have referenced this work after declaring yourself an optimist, but I am also not sure why you spell "copius", "reccomend", or "arguements" the way that you do during a debate about writing-quality, to have no one jump in to challenge you the way everyone is quick to label me as a bitter psychopath for pointing out such things (context my friend, context!).
Once again, as in our previous conversation, I wish you luck in finding the lore to be "the best possible world of storytelling", however, (as you may have guessed) my concerns, or desire for more information about the writing priorities for LoL, are still not alleviated.
Alas, predictably no answer seems to be forthcoming from any later pages of this thread...
As I was about to write before the NA forum servers went offline, as you seem to be a fan both of France and of musicals you may find Les Bien-aimés
an interesting film to watch if you haven't seen it yet, it's about the serious consequences of settling for less than you truly want in the hope of things getting better at some point in the future, and the songs are quite catchy: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1815799/
