Darth Wiki: Crowning Moment Of Indifference aka: Crowning Momentof Indifference
Man, you never had such a non-reaction to this work than at this moment. You were in such a neutral state, you didn't even feel like shrugging it off. Even a "meh" or "why?" would be more of a reaction than this warrants.
It doesn't even tick you off over it, as would some cases of So Okay, It's Average. The rule of thumb is that if you can't remember how you felt about that moment, it's because you didn't really have a feeling of it either way. Hence you have this trope.
Watched too many GRIMDARKAnime. Try watching the more normal sort of entertainment. Didn't really care about anyone in the small moving-picture sound-making box. Read some newspapers. The world is as bad as always. Didn't really care about anyone or anything anymore.
Watched the supposedly hilarious FLCL , it wasn't that funny
Watched the anime version ofValkyria Chronicles. Didn't find anything surprising, wasn't overly moved by any of the characters or plot, and when it was over I didn't feel it sucked, but I didn't want to watch it again.
I watched Evangelion and found that it wasn't confusing, great or crappy.
Now that is downright impossible.
I started watching Tengen Toppa, I walked out the room to get a cup of tea and I forgot I was watching it so I read a book instead. Kamina was an okay character.
Watched the first two episodes of the Slayers anime a month or two ago. I smiled a few times, but other than that it was meh.
People rave about Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, but... it's alright. Nanoha's a bit of a flat, uninteresting character - she's been done a million times before, and the romantic undertones in the first two seasons were, if anything, a bit squicky, due to both of the characters being underage.
I published the first chapter of my original fanfic some days ago. Still got no reviews.
One of my favorite fanfics hasn't updated in quite some time. The author seems to having personal problems, and he's also updating a couple of story-driven fan-Tumblrs that I don't find funny or interesting. It's a little irritating that he wants to focus on such dumb stories as opposed to the one I liked more, but it's not terrible or anything.
I read Cupcakes and Sweet Apple Massacre I felt they were both boring and over-hyped.
I read that one fic, Cheerilee's Garden or whatever. It was sort of creepy, I guess.
Watched Igor, the one with John Cusack. Almost laughed a couple of times. Completely failed to react to the movie otherwise. Then experienced severe disgust that a movie could actually make me that indifferent.
Watched Brave, wanted my money back while my friend cried during the end.
This. But in my case, all six of us, guys and gals, wanted our money back.
Film - Live Action
Saw this movie, and the moment was at the end of the opening credits.
The popcorn was tasty, but that's not this trope.
The second time I saw Napoleon Dynamite. They say it gets better with each viewing, but since I already knew what was happening, I may as well have been staring at a wall.
The first time I saw Napoleon Dynamite. I could not possibly have cared less about that movie.
The first time I heard about Napoleon Dynamite. My friend told me about the plot, quite eagerly, and I was just like "Huh, 'kay". I suspect I pissed her off a little or something. But, eh, I don't know...
Saw Avatar (the 2009 movie). Didn't bat an eyelash over the action and conflict. Felt like it was just a wall to me.
This was how I felt about the 2009 Star Trek film. I literally remember maybe 2 minutes of it.
The ending of Mr And Mrs Smith was crap, but i was just glad the film was over and I could leave the cinema. Most of the jokes in that film drew either silence or an indifferent cough from the rest of the cinema.
I watched Cowboys and Aliens and simply didn't give a damn who died. Hell, the aliens could've killed Olivia Wilde and I wouldn't have cared... wait, I forgot she died. Oops, delayed spoiler. Still don't care to add spoiler markers.
Hi, total sci-fi non-fan here and I have to say that Blade Runneris FREAKING AMAZING. I think the original Star Wars trilogy is something you'd tend to care about more if you grew up with it or if you're a big fan of "space westerns" in the first place, but Blade Runner transcends genres (IMO).
That's not really indifferent, but I don't know how much it matters.
Out of excitement, my friend punched me several times in the arm during the Hobbit trailer in theaters. I can't give shits over high fantasy.
I've been reading the Earth's Children series. By the time I got to the third one, I was only continuing to read because I'm compelled to finish anything I start. Even that, however, wasn't enough to make me read the last one. It still lies on the side table in my living room, unread.
While reading Allies I eventually learned that Abeloth is Callista. The problem is that I start my journey in the EU from Thrawn Trilogy and deliberately skipped Callista Trilogy. Therefore, also I basically know who is this lady, I don't give a damn about her. I was like: ""Oh, another old girlfriend of Luke? I guess it sucks, kill her.""
The computer girl? Man. That could've been shocking if those books had been good enough to make me care about her. Why do we need Luke's old girlfriends to be the bad guys, anyway? It's been 20+ years since they've even showed up.
Read Twilight all the way through. Did not read sequels.
Read Twilight all the way through. Read the two after that. They were okay. Then I didn't stop, but my crushing indifference has taken too much hold on me for me to talk about that.
Five minutes after finishing Twilight I had forgotten the plot.
I seem unable to show the appropriate emotional reaction for plot twist or dramatic event in fictional work without preparing myself. For instance in the Harry Potterandthe Half Blood Prince water cave scene, when I read it I really didn't think much about it, just kept reading. Only when I talked to other fans who went on about the Nightmare Fuel and squickiness of it did I think to interpret it as such. Ditto for Dumbledore's death. BIG TEARJERKER for everybody, okay-when's-the-next-book-out for me. This happens all the time with literature and some movies, even though I am a fairly emotional person most of the time (all most more so than I'd like). Am I selectively apathetic or missing something important?
Saw the warning at the top about just having these be about pieces of media. Meh. Oops.
Read the first four books of Harry Potter every day for 30 days (due to there being almost nothing else to read.) I don't hate the books, but don't feel like reading them ever again.
I read The Hunger Games. It was alright, I guess. Won't bother reading the other books though, because I don't feel like it.
When Adam was defeated. My exact thoughts were "Oh, wait, he's dead now?".
A friend made a reference to a TV show I haven't watched during a conversation. I voiced my vague curiosity, but lost interest once she started explaining and looked at a bush.
I was watching the Academy Awards and went to check Tumblr during a commercial break. Someone had posted about the guy from Sherlock being in a Doctor Who episode. I then went back to watching the Oscars.
It's perfectly okay. Never underestimate the power of Mr. Rogers.
I heard this song on the radio. I didn't feel like buying it from iTunes, but I didn't change the station either.
I never thought it would happen, but I've gotten bored of listening to music. I haven't enjoyed music in over a week now. And I can't bring myself to care about it.
This troper watched his city explode in cheers and rapture last night because our local baseball team won the World Series. Then he shrugged and went back to playing Fable III.
This one time, I was trying to download a PDF of a Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook. It failed. Then I tried to download it from a different site, and it succeeded. The sourcebook didn't have anything for sorcerers. I didn't read it again, until I read it a few months later. It still didn't. Then I closed the file, and looked at weird pornography. I was already desensitized.
There was this time I beat a video game for the 11th time.
While playing Godzilla: Monster of Monsters on the NES, I went through a period of about 30 minutes where I was vaguely aware that I wasn't enjoying myself at all, but kept playing anyway.
After a few years of very passive searching I finally stumbled on one of the first games I played and downloaded it on freeware. It was just as I remember it - alright. Not as good as some of the newer games, but not too bad either. I am now almost totally ambivalent about it.
I played all 3 Mass Effect games in sequence, and at the end of the 3rd game I thought to myself, I wonder if Tobuscus has updated his Minecraft LP yet.
When Thane died on the suicide mission I thought to myself "Well that kind of sucks....I guess..." and then went on with the mission.
Playing Mass Effect 2. Wow, you want me to stop the new baddies? Sure, like I recieved throngs of praise throughout the galaxy after I stopped the old ones in the first one.
Played the Omega DLC of Mass Effect 3 on insanity and didn't plan on touching Mass Effect for a while.
Trope also applies to any recent announcements of DLC or games for this series.
After, some talk about BlazBlue, my friend told me about how he didn't like Isaak. Since I hadn't played it, I couldn't say I had any sort of reaction to what he said, aside from "oh, okay". I even lampshaded that fact to him.
Around my 15th playthrough of The Force Unleashed I achived a sort of bordem Nirvanna. I know that's misspelled. I don't care enough to say I don't care enough to care to finish this sentence. Or grammar. Also, Disney Channel original movies. Pinnacle of bleah whatever.
When I played Grand Theft Auto Ballad of Gay Tony parked my Armored Car at a bridge and shot down a helicopter for the tenth time.
I downloaded a map pack for Doom. I beat the map pack. Now I'm tired.
Just bought and beat the Minerva's Den single-player campaign in BioShock 2. Didn't get as much as an impact as the regular game did. Ah well, I got some trophies (and found a plot twist near the end, but I won't say).
Got the Epic Mickey Collector's Edition. Was okay, in contrast to my high level of excitement from months before release.
My sister is playing Epic Mickey, she still playing at 3/26/12, 5:49 PM , i dont care how long it will take her.
People say the Dunwich Building of Fallout 3 is the most terrifying building ever. Me? I just walked in and sighed in boredom whenever the ghouls attacked me. When I heard their shrilling call, I mocked them saying, "Graaaaaggghhh yourself."
The Dunwich Building can best be summed up as 'lights flicker, stuff falls over.'
Played Sonic 4 today. It's cool.
I gained a level in a MMORPG.
I once played a video game. It wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst. I might put it away for a while and play it again when I'm bored.
I've been playing [[Minecraft]] long since it stopped being fun. I've been mining in a straight line since about 2 O'clock. It is now 5 O'clock. I'm hungry now.
I was going to fix that link but, eh, you know.
Killed another Ganado today. Need more excitement.
Watched another person blast Saddler with a rocket launcher. Okay.
Had a dream where JR was shouting Black Hole! Black Hole! After I punched Uranus and blew it up causing a massive black hole. I woke up and said that was stupid, and went back to sleep.
The PSN is down right now, but I don't feel any different.
I played Super Mario 3D Land. It was great, but in the Special Worlds, it's hard, but I don't know if it sucks or it's awesome. I don't care.
After being mercilessly spoiled about Skyward Sword before even playing it, I became cynically indifferent about spoilers altogether.
This trope perfectly describes the emotional impact Dragon Age II had for this troper.
People are getting all excited about the new Tomb Raider game. Me? I just roll my eyes and continue playing Skyrim.
One day I was reading Homestuck and there was a rather long Pesterlog. I decided to skip it. Later on I found out it had plot relevant information so I went back and read it. Then I went on Facebook.
I once read an XKCD comic. I didn't get the reference but I understood where the joke was supposed to be.
xkcd is best if you do get the references. Sorry, non-STEM/-web geek people.
Years ago Goatse made me shiver with disgust when i first saw it. Now i am so desensitized that the "Offended" page on ED, most shock sites and weird fetish porn can't even manage to get a reaction from me.
Someone pulled a prank on a forum once. Episode 3 was apparently cancelled by Gabe. I was filled with a strong feeling of neutrality, having never played it myself. Upon further inspection, it turned out it was regarding Penny Arcade. I was filled with an even stronger feeling of neutrality at this point.
Sometimes I read creepypasta and it has no effect on me.
Same here. Some of them are kinda creepy (I guess), but most aren't.
Just read a story on Creepy Pasta called "The Rake” because my friend was scared by it. Completely indifferent. ~~~~
I saw a slenderman creepypasta, not really scary, but i don't know why is it in the 'Shock Ending' page.
Some reviewer on the internet made a video on a film or video game I like and trashed it. I disagreed with their opinion, but I found their perspective interesting and the video was still pretty entertaining. I guess.
When I first saw Transwarped, Team Rodimus' appearance, while for many was the most epic start of anything since the invention of silverware or television, had absolutely no effect on me. I wasn't even paying attention to it, and I forgot 90% of what happened there. All I remember is Rodimus asking for help. How awesome.
I decided to watch Dora the Explorer's 10th anniversary. Then I decided to go on the computer and mind my business as if I didn't just watch a show I'm too old for.
So I saw Clerks: The Animated Series, and from previous accounts I hear stuff like it was "canceled too early for its own good and blah blah" and so I expected it to be good. It's not that it's a bad cartoon, it's just that the humor is just... generic, I feel that the same type of humor has already been used in many other examples before and after the show was made.
My first reaction to King Ramses' when I was six. Not scary at all. Nope. Still doesn't scare me one bit.
