I will draw more story about them in my fanbook ^ ^
With the recent Klance debacle, it’s time something be said about fandoms.
Voltron, Avatar/Korra, Pokemon, Steven Universe, RWBY, the list goes
on for days and days.
The names may change but the fandoms stay the same, going through
the same cycles. They always start out so well yet as the show’s story
progresses and more fans gather, divisions begin to form with what the
show is doing right or doing wrong.
Shippers invested in a
pairing clash with other shippers of another pairing, so called critics
get on their high horse to declare a plot point as irredeemable whether
it will lead to something better in the future or not and discourse runs
I wish I could crack jokes along the lines of, “Remember when fandom drama was never even a concept” except that is was and always will be. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle couldn’t kill off Sherlock without getting a boat-load of grief in the process.
It’s only thanks to the world wide web that these extreme cases not only are report to the public at large… but also allow for these fanatics to carry out even worse acts than before. Social Media is sadly a double edged sword.
I myself do not condone it and will call bullshit out on
the ground of being, well, bullshit. However, I have long given up the
hope for a truly peaceful fandom. Humans are small, panicky creature
that can be far too opinionated for their own good and too many take it to greater heights.
The nature of fandoms themselves is
one that can never truly be altered and to expect everybody to change is a
mere dream. With how vast and reaching they all can be, not everybody
will be able to hear you say, “Hey, cut the shit, ass!”
then, not everybody’s going to listen. Some will rebel and fling back,
“Fuck you, I’ll do what I want,” because they cling to the anonymity the
web gives. Trolls will trolls, haters will hate and the internet as a
whole exacerbates this to no end.
So what do we do? What can we do?
Well, I try
to follow Uncle Iroh’s advice. I try to find the light in the dark no
matter how overwhelming it may be. I try to find the fans who see
through the bullshit and deal with the discourse accordingly, find the
fans who create fanart for fun, fans who actually want to enjoy the show
they came to watch. I know they exist.
I find them and cling on
for dear life, making sure that the dark side of the fandom doesn’t
define my perceptions or drive me away from what I enjoy. They don’t get
to decide what I can and can’t like. Nobody except for me.
realize that not everybody can overcome their anxieties, especially
younger fans who are just getting into social media. They should not
have to fight for having a good time and find a place where they can try to feel safe.
I’m not shaming anybody for avoiding the fandoms of Steven Universe or Voltron like the plague. Even if the recent debacle had been perpetrated by a lone troll for his/her sick kicks, that doesn’t erase the minefield of discourse that will definitely take the wind out of your sails from how dumb and/or how hateful.
But for all the bullshit and all the discourse, I wouldn’t trade fandoms for the world. Everytime it feels like it’s not worth it, I find people coming out to prove those thoughts wrong. People like @takashi0 and @coonfootproductions along with their friends who endeavor to make that happen.
