I love how young the Power Rangers (2017) fandom is right now. The ships and headcannons and fanfiction and fanart is growing. No one hates each other and has tried to metaphorically murder someone over who a fictional character dates. It’s so nice and peaceful.

So this is a friendly reminder that this peace won’t last. It never does, so enjoy the peace of the fandom while you can. Because one day … one day … there will be war.

When you’re in a fandom, and you’re getting pissed about something you don’t like the source material doing, ask yourself this: is it a kids show?

If the answer is yes, ask yourself this question: am I a kid?

If the answer is no, then remeber this; kids shows are not intended to have the same kind of complex character development of a show intended for a grown up audience is. It’s lovely when a kids show can be entertaining for everyone, but kids shows can’t always cater to more mature themes or audiences, especially when their main function is to entertain kids, and receive the parental approval that translates into sale of merchandise.

So next time you go to bash a show you’re a fan of for not doing exactly what you and other adult fans want, remeber you’re not necessarily the target audience, and that you should be grateful that the series is being made at all.

Also, on an unrelated note, remeber that the original run of Young Justice failed mostly because toys for that show didn’t sell well.
