I love my readers, followers, and friends, but mother of god, the fandom can be so fucking exhausting sometimes.
There are currently five dramas/fights/“wars” going on (just that I know about because people have been messaging me the past week about them all.) It’s ridiculous. Grow the fuck up.
Stop bullying one another.
Stop shaming people for their ships.
Stop leaving homophobic bullshit in your reviews.
Stop plagiarising fanfic.
Stop bitching about updates and how your “time has been wasted” when you don’t like the end of a fic.
Stop shaming writers for writing THEIR stories the way they intended just because it wasn’t what you predicted.
Stop attacking artists for drawing pairings you disapprove of.
Stop blaming victims for standing up for themselves.
The fandom is our place to escape from the stressful fucked up shit going on in the world. And there’s a lot of it! Wars are happening. Syrians still need countries to live in. Shootings are still happening all over the world. Britain is still dealing with the aftermath of everything with Brexit. The US is just weeks away from turning into a country-wide blender of stupidity (either because of a decision, or reacting to a decision.)
FANDOM IS OUR ESCAPE.
FANDOM IS OUR SAFE SPACE.
Stop fucking it up!
Stop making it shitty.
Stop being passive aggressive.
Be fucking decent goddamned people for crying out loud.
