Important: The V and Rika Discourse; this needs to stop.
Please read, everyone
Hey guys, I have something important that I’d like to announce:
I think I’m gonna try to..stay a little bit away from Tumblr up until the hype calms down. Opinions can’t be stated freely these days without something going wrong, and nobody can ever just..talk about their different views like adults in a mature manner. Or, people state opinions without any proof or reasoning. Liking characters to spite people, insulting those with different opinions, and it’s all over something you all consider to be a game. @yoosungshoodie made an amazing point which was:
“You all say it’s just a game and that it isn’t serious, but it becomes serious as soon as you’re called out or proved wrong”
That wasn’t their exact words, but that was the general message. I agree with them completely. Everyone’s all talk and what they say is right and you’re wrong but then as soon as someone makes a valid point, NONE of you are willing to accept that and it becomes “IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS LOL IT’S JUST A GAME, CALM DOWN”
Then why did you care so much in the first place?
If you like V, cool, if you like Rika, cool. Like em both? Cool. Don’t like either? Cool. GUYS. It is SERIOUSLY not something you should all be screaming about and starting feuds over and this is getting ridiculous. I like the people who can disagree with me, present their opinions without getting aggressive, and have a conversation with me like a human being. Is it normal to get a little upset? Of course, I tend to. But I don’t sit there and talk to the person like they’re a piece of garbage and I do my best to never word what I say as if it’s 100% fact unless it’s something that has been directly presented to us in the game with only one possibly way to take it.
I was so excited too, it was so exciting to see Mystic Messenger trend again! But no, people who act like children had to ruin the experience. “Oh look at you, you’re insulting people” I’m doing it reasonably. I’m telling you how it is. And nobody ever listens either.
Some of you need to stop with the sticks up your asses and learn that just because it’s your opinion, that doesn’t make it fact. BE OPEN to what others have to say, whether it’s agreeing or disagreeing with you. Don’t just dismiss their ideas because yours are different.
“Hey I disagree with this *insert polite reasoning*”
“Oh wow, that’s really interesting..I didn’t think about it that way”
Funny right? Cause like…hardly anyone ever talks like that. it’s more:
“Wow you fucking skank, it’s all Rika’s fault/it’s all V’s fault *insert childish rambling*”
Here’s what we know, okay? Let me tell you EXACTLY what the V and Rika situation is: None of you are V, none of you are Rika, and none of you are Cheritz. Therefore, none of us know everything and I don’t think any of us ever will and frankly, I hope it stays that way so everyone can just get over this and enjoy the game instead of fighting with all this “iM RIGHT AND YOURE WRONG!” “V DID NOTHING WRONG!” “RIKAS A SNAKE!” or “V USED RIKA AND ITS ALL HIS FAULT!!” “V DID THIS AND THAT AND-”
Poor Cheritz, man. They have the mature, wonderful, fun fans who just love the game and making friends with others like them.
And then there’s some people. The people who have to shit in the swimming pool. Not even piss in it, but shit in it. The ones who can’t STAND listening to other people’s opinions, whether you’re on V or Rika’s side or on both or not on either, god, I do not care because people from every perspective have and will continue to act like children about this up until they leave the fandom. This is absolutely ridiculous and I’m disappointed in the people who do this in the fandom and make it hard for other people to enjoy it.
That all being said, I’m not leaving. *Unless this somehow gets any worse* But I’ll only be coming back to answer a few asks and maybe shitpost, talk to people, and that’s it. Up until all this chaos is gone, anyway. When everyone calms down, I’ll return to write more. This all has completely diminished my will to write out things and be happy for right now.
Please spread this message as much as you can guys. Please, whether it’s reblogging or posting something similar in your own words, please just make sure people know that this is getting out of hand.
