Everyone’s talking about how toxic the fandom is...
missing the bigger picture. When the leak happened, it was only one fan who
made us look bad by trying to blackmail the studio. Just one. You know what
everyone else was doing? They were pulling together, trying to purge Tumblr of
the leaks. By the time I came online that day, I had no idea what anyone was
talking about because the leaks were pretty much gone. That’s how quickly this
fandom pulled together.
Sure, we’ve got
problems – mainly the endless (and pointless) ship wars – but, at the end of
the day, this fandom is made up of fundamentally good people. When it matters,
we can work together just fine.
