About the ship wars on this fandom (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫･*:.｡. .｡.:*･
Seriously guys, why don’t you just use your energy and love to create content to your OWN ship(s) and characters you like instead of using it to HATE and talk shit about the others??!!! Please??!! Thank you!!!??
Okay. So a lot of the fandom have been noticing parts of Jordan we love fading slightly. But I don’t quite know if that’s the case. So people have been saying:
-He looks sad
-He looks tired
-His mother keeps calling him
And if I’m honest, of course it’s our job to make him feel better. But do NOT ask him about it; please. If he felt the need to tell us, he would. And honestly, I kind of feel a little rude trying to invade his privacy in such a way.
We need to remember he’s not a machine. If he needs a break, let him take a break (as a few of you have said). It just angers me when people expect him to post videos on his usual schedule. Yes, he has set himself a schedule, but we can’t expect him to be perfect.
This is turning into a rant, and I didn’t want that to happen. So hold your hats people, I’m going to just ramble now.
Firstly, let him do his own thing. If he feels the need to do something in HIS series, who are we to disagree? And I feel like very few people understand that. Say, if he wants to do the red-stone his own way and you thought of a better way? Do not yell in the comments saying, ‘OH YOU IDIOT! JUST DO IT THIS WAY!’. That is not your decision. But, you CAN offer to him, ‘I think there is an easier way and it takes way less resources’. That is fine. It’s just when you tell him he’s wrong. It’s him series. It’s his YouTube channel. It’s his choice on what he does. It may not always be the most efficient way, but as he says, ‘it wouldn’t be an episode of Ultra Modded Survival with some face-palms’.
Secondly, respect his privacy. I don’t think he wants to see people constantly commenting saying, ‘Oh! Are you two dating?’. You need to understand that he has his own life, of which you need to keep your nose out of. He chooses what he wants people to know, so let him do that. And as much as you may not believe it, YouTube is probably only a part of his life, not his whole life. You cannot expect him to tell you every little secret. In no way am I trying to be rude; but although I do in fact write fan-fictions, I don’t try and put anything too personal in there. It’s not a writers’ job to expose their characters. So please, just understand that if he had something he needed to say, he would.
Thirdly, (you’re probably sick of me by now), he’s human. Humans make mistakes; so please don’t expect him to be perfect. Plus, you have to remember, that he’s playing a game. As much as you feel attached to that game and Jordan, it’s a game. This game is not going to change his life completely; and as much as games has affected his life, one silly mistake is not going to change it. Mate, it’s a piece of redstone. Well done, maybe he didn’t get it right first time, but bloody keep your socks on! If he makes a mistake in a livestream, just kindly suggest a solution. Do not -I repeat, not- yell at him for doing something you didn’t like. Although it doesn’t happen as much in livestreams, video comments can be horrendous. And if you didn’t know, he has a freaking heart (news-flash)! When you call him stupid, he sees that. And seriously, as much as he will try and push that comment away, or delete it; he still would’ve seen it. He still would’ve read it. Harsh comments hurt. Trust me. Just be considerate and understand he’s just like you.
Now I feel like I’ve offended you. So get ready for the apologies: I am sorry if I offended you in any way, it was not my intention and never will be. I just felt as if I wanted to put my feelings across. So y'know, hate me all you want. My anon is turned on.
Just know, as soon as you hate on Jordan (or the PLANET Pluto for that matter), I take offence. Not because it’s being mean to ME, it’s because you are insulting someone who is my idol (plus Pluto is a planet). Rolls up sleeves* So y'know, I will totally Margret Thatcher your Falklands. (Stop being a weirdo Emma).
Give me a second. *Takes pee break*
And finally (you’re probably as happy as I currently am), Jordan, if you’re reading this (we know you check the tag), please don’t take any of these comments to heart. Although I’m just a silly teenage girl with an addiction to penguin bars, I sometimes felt alone. At one point of my life all of my friends were turned against me, and I was without friends for over seven months. This however, is not the case for you. You have people that adore you. People that think you’re the best person born onto this planet. As soon as you start hurting, they notice, and they hurt too. This might just be a load of shenanigans and you’re perfectly fine with it, seeming that you’ve dealt with it for years. Or, if you’re hurting, you don’t have to tell us what’s hurting.
I remember when I first told my mother that I couldn’t stand living anymore, she told me that it was just a phase, and that I was making a big deal out of little issue. It had taken me a lot of courage to tell her, then she just palmed it away. You, you have more courage than I could ever dream of. You dreamed big, and look where you are. Jordan, you are an inspirational person, and although I know that you probably won’t even read down to here, believe me, you’re purely amazing. And as much as people moan, yell, curse and anger, you will still be the same old you. People love you for that.
So please don’t give in and apologise. We need you to stand up and tell them to stop being jerks and to leave if they don’t like your content.
Now my hands hurt. Ow.
But yeah. Remember to smile today; if you haven’t, smile now!
IT’S DONE! I’M DONE! I’ve drawn this for @skribblie I know it’s a bit too late for this, but I think a bit of an encouragement can’t be that unuseful? I’ve done this to show you that you do matter, that you are loved and that you’re not pathetic. That it’s okay to cry, to need someone to talk to or to care about you because you can’t do it yourself. To need someone in general.
