“I’m really sick of everyone complaining about Frozen. I hear more
complaints about Frozen fans than I can find active Frozen fan blogs,
see people say Frozen isn’t feminist but can’t find anyone who said it
was feminist in the past year or so. This fandom has a lot of problems,
from porn to pedophilia to incest, can we focus on them instead of
making up a boogeyman to defeat instead?”
Textposts. Gifs. Fandoms. Vines. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Superwholocks attacked. Only the XKit Guy, master of all four memes, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new XKit Guy, a patch program named New XKit. And although his textpost editing skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone. But I believe New XKit can save the world.
I guess I don’t quite understand what fandom is. It seems pretty nebulous. I like a lot of shows and I seek out fanart of favorite characters. Does that make me a part of a fandom? Sometimes I like to talk about these things on the webs. Does that make me a part of the fandom? I don’t have a blog that exclusively reblogs and creates media based on these shows and characters. Am I outside the fandom? What does it mean when people say a fandom is “dead”? Does it mean people don’t like the piece of media anymore?
I’m not the biggest fan of bullet-hell shooters, so I may not be one to judge, but it really weirds me out when fan-artists draw Touhou characters as, like, adult human beings with discernible bone structure and stuff, as opposed to squishy-looking pseudo-teenagers. It just feels wrong.
