Fandoms are beautiful
I guess this is how i look at fandoms and obsessions and crying over things. I guess being able to feel so much over something is a beautiful thing and is healthy. It means that the author did something right. It means that the author created something so beautiful that it can summon different feelings about a fictional situation because it hits home somewhere. Certainly there is an underlying reason why someone is crying about a specific situation. I mean, take homestuck for example. I know for a fact some of it hits home kind of hard. Or it reminds you of what you want more than anything.
For example, when John kept on finding notes from his father, they said “i am so very proud of you” on like every one I had to sort of bite back tears, not cuz i lost my father, because i didnt, but its cuz my father is not very fatherly. Actually, he’s not at all what a father figure or even really a good parent is. Unless you’ve lived with him for 22 years, i guess you guys wouldnt know, and I cant properly explain it. Its like, i know there was a time when things werent so rocky, but reading about how their bond made me wish i had that. I wish i have a parent like dad egbert. And like i know what happens to him (i’m not saying more cuz i want jennica to read it lol) but i dunno. I guess i could call it sort of jealousy. I dunno. And anything to do with the family and ecto siblings and dlkfja;sdkf;jds I dont know.
Anyway, what hussie has done is create a highly complex vivid world full of complex and 3D characters and that together creates a highly beautiful work.
To me, homestuck is beautiful cuz it is funny, sad, and highly complex and deep. Some people may say we are sad and pathetic, but its pretty beautiful how people feel attached to the characters, because it makes us think of our real life, and our reactions to real life things. You know? It’s ugh, it’s complex and complicated and long as fuck, but it’s something that has all united us. We are crazy, impatient, weird and in cahoots sometimes, but we are all united over something. And that goes for all the fandoms, not just homestuck.
Fandoms really are a beautiful thing arent they?
Thank you Hussie. <3
We love you.
