2018 is the year I’m not going to reblog those passive aggressive posts about people having headcanons that are “wrong”. The posts about “When someone interprets your fav wrong” or any of those. The year that I stop caring if someone has a different headcanon about something than I do. Because I certainly wouldn’t like it if people pointed out things “wrong” with the way I view a character. It’s a headcanon. It can’t be “Wrong”. And even if it “directly contradicts canon”… Okay. That’s why we make AUs.
And unless someone is doing something harmful with it then who cares if they view a character differently than you? The only time you’ll see me disagree with a headcanon is if it’s the kind that takes a character who is clearly a villain who did terrible things and paints them as an innocent who did nothing wrong and seeing the terrible things they do as completely ok. And honestly, even if I see people do that, as much as I don’t like it, I would never post about it. I just ignore it. Because nothing I say is going to change how they feel. It will just make me angry and make them upset.
Let 2018 be the year we let people have opinions of their own. Let 2018 be the year we let other people have fun even if it’s not the way we, ourselves have fun. We don’t all HAVE to agree. And being angry and aggressive over what we think and feel about fiction isn’t going to make anything better.
