I’m really digging the response to @therealjacksepticeye playing Hiveswap by members of the Homestuck community so far. The “Hey, come in, welcome to the fandom. We got drinks and snacks, and there’s some pretty cool dudes and creators here. We can show you some of the things and customs we do around here. You got any questions, ask away.” kind of behavior.
If we can get more of this kind of response, not just in the Homestuck fandom, but in all media based fandoms, then it’s be a lovely change of pace, because it’s more often than not, it’s the toxic players that give fandoms bad labels. I’ve heard horror stories but have been fortunately lucky enough to be at events and meet-ups over my last 2 years of attendance to hang out with some really cool and friendly people.
Sure, some people don’t like other fandoms, but if you don’t act like a dick and seal your paint, then every thing can be good.
Also, personal opinion, but Jack has got to be an Heir of Life. He’s such an energetic green bean!
