If you’re a part of the Voltron fandom that has upset the creators who gave us this blessing of a show: You should be ashamed of yourselves.
But do not worry, I have created a three step program to help to correct this issue that has gone way too out of hand:
1. Breathe and remember that this is a cartoon. It is a show. These are characters. Fictional. Characters. Nothing more, nothing less. It is what the are. We are the viewers who are able to witness these characters and let our imaginations roam in different creative type ways that maybe not every fan in this fandom will enjoy, but in hopes that at least one other will enjoy what you create.
2. Apologize to those you have hurt. And this goes to everybody. If you have sent hate, bullied, or hurt another fan in our space family, drop everything you’re doing and apologize to them right now. Our fandom is barely even one year old yet, and a lot of you are starting to act like it. If you don’t agree with someone’s creative thinking, don’t bother them. If you don’t like it, unfollow them if you want, but do NOT attack them. Please.
3. Remember that we are a space family. Us, the creators, every member of the cast and crew make up this space family. So let’s try to not make it as toxic as possible. Meet others who want to talk with you about your ships/favorite characters/headcanons/AUs, whichever. Go look for others who share the same ideas. Open up in a friendly, positive way to other fans in this family that you want to speak with.
Above all us, treat the fans you encounter the way you would want them to treat you. I can not stress this enough. The creators gave us a show that we all enjoy, and they want to see how imaginative we can be with their characters. But remember, they don’t want us to fight each other.
So be as creative as you want, but remember to be kind to each other too.
I love you guys, but we have to make up for this. So work together, okay now?
Take care of yourself, and take care of each other.
