Allow me to introduce the TRON Fandom

“What?” you may ask. “There’s a fandom besides Doctor Who, Supernatural, and Sherlock on Tumblr?” Yeah. Pay attention, the Avengers are pretty big here too, along with the rest of the MCU.

But I’m not here to talk about that. I’m here to talk about TRON.

“Do you mean that hokey 80s Sci-Fi flick I’ve never watched because it just looks lame, or that two hour Daft Punk music video?”

Don’t you start with me. And stop interrupting.

We are the Tron fandom. We appreciate these movies. Know why? Because we actually sat and enjoyed the story.

Sure, we’re pretty small. Neither film did as well as Disney wanted in the box office. But you know what?

We’re powerful.

Yknow that game that came out, Disney Infinity? Yeah, the one with the figures. When it first came out we wanted TRON characters in it. So we asked. We pushed. And you know what?

We got em in the next version.

But they were DIGITAL ONLY????

We weren’t about to sit still for that. So you know what we did? We nagged again and we got our physical figures. Some of us don’t even play Disney Infinity and we bought the figures, both digitally and physically. Some of us have a little army of Quorra’s on our shelves.

We may be small. We may not have a lot of content out there. But we are PASSIONATE. We snap up whatever we get. Heck, we waited nearly thirty years for a sequel movie to the first movie, and got a FPS video game in between. And we ate it up. We are the ones who buy the comics, who watched every episode of Uprising, even when it was on at MIDNIGHT. Not to mention we own every episode of TRON: Uprising on iTunes, Amazon Digital, etc.

We’re the ones who sent Disney hundreds, possibly thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands of glow sticks when we heard that our third movie was shelved, and boy do we refuse to say it’s cancelled.

We’re the ones who are going NUTS over every piece of beautiful concept art that was “leaked” from “TRON: Escape.”

We’re the ones who flipped out when we found out that ‘TRON: Escape’ actually was happening, only by a different name (TRON: RUN/r), and are buying it up on Steam EVEN THOUGH THE GAME ISN’T DONE YET.

We’re the ones who read, watch, play, and buy anything with TRON on it.

We’re the ones who have created intricate backstories and fan fictions and fan characters, some characters that are written so well they feel like they are canon.

We’re the ones who refuse to believe that the Tron franchise is dead.

Now, more than ever,

honestly something that really bothers me about Tron: Legacy is the narrative treats Rinzler with almost no sympathy, and literally tries to set Clu up as a more tragic figure, like what the fuck?

like it just kind of glosses over the fact that Rinzler is the byproduct of torture and brainwashing. We don’t know what his situation is, because he’s almost entirely non-verbal. He never actually chooses any of his actions in the movie except the final one, but the narrative acts like Tron just got up from his wound after the ambush scene and went “y’know what fuck Flynn I’m changing my name and working for Clu”. And I especially hate the line of “Tron, what have you become” because god damn it Flynn why are you blaming Tron for what is obviously not his fault. He’s not shooting at you because Tron abandoned his morals, he’s shooting at you because Tron stood by Flynn and stood by his morals, and was imprisoned, tortured and brainwashed for it. He’s the fucking victim. The scene would be much better if they gave it like, the slightest shred of compassion, and instead of laying all the blame at Tron/Rinzler’s feet, had Flynn say “Tron, what has he done to you” because obviously Rinzler/Tron’s current state is entirely because of the severe violation of his autonomy by Clu.

And let’s not even get into the fact that I personally headcanon that Tron and Rinzler are two different personalities, and for all intents and purposes different people, due to Rinzler’s behaviour and fighting style being dramatically different from Tron’s. There’s a hell of a mindfuck going on with that program.

And like it’s even worse because in Tron: Uprising they give the entire scene from Tron’s perspective, and we see him severely injured, but still full conscious and coherent, informing Clu that his ambush failed, and that Clu will never catch Flynn now that he’s escaped. To which Clu replies that he doesn’t really give a shit about where Flynn goes or what he does, and the entire point of the ambush was to get Tron. Like, literally, if Tron and Flynn had responded to the ambush by bolting in separate directions, Clu and the guards would have chased after Tron, he was being specifically targeted, and Clu got exactly what he wanted out of it. After all, Clu didn’t give a shit about the User world until he had finished with ‘perfecting’ the Grid. Once he ran out of things to do, he set his sights back on Flynn.

Anyways my point is somebody protect Rinzler and shower him in love and affection bcause my husband needs to be saved.

Disney shows that should get canceled besides the 7D

I just don’t get why the directors at Disney XD want to cancel “The 7D”. Sure the show has it flaws, and isn’t as popular as other shows like WOY, Gravity Falls, and SVTFOE, but it shouldn’t be canned just for those reasons, especially when there are way worse shows that are still airing on Disney XD that deserve to be cancelled rather then “The 7D”. 

This isn’t the first time this has happened. Over the past few years the people at Disney XD have been canceling good shows, like RC9GN, Tron: Uprising, and most recently Wander Over Yonder, yet they still let terrible shows continue to air or decide to air other bad shows air in there places. Don’t believe me here are some examples.

One famous example is The Pickle and Peanut show, the disney version of shows like Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig. A show about an antromorphic Pickle and Peanut going on bland/predictable misadventures that mostly contains gross out humor. It doesn’t sound like a show people would like, and it must be true with the small viewership the episodes get. Ive also seen a lot of negative reviews on this show yet this show somehow gets a second season rather then other shows that deserve it like WOY, The 7D, and Penn Zero. This show should have been cancelled along time ago yet Disney keeps advertising it for some reason.

Another show that should be cancelled instead of the 7D is Kirby Buckets, a live action show about a kid wanting to be an animator and interacts with his drawings (in animation form). This is just another bland show filled with nothing but gross out humors and its surprising that this show hasn’t been cancelled yet, even with all the negative reviews its gets.

Even some of the new shows that have replaced the old shows are starting to fail.

One of there newest show Future Worm, a show about a time traveling worm. though its still new, its getting less views then the newest episodes of the 7D, I don’t see that show getting any momentum anytime soon.

Another is a show called Right Now Kapow, a show where random things to random characters that make a one episode appearance, and it is doing worse then future worm !

What Im getting at is that before the directors at Disney XD decide that they want to cancel a show, especially a good show, they should check to see if there is a worse show that deserves to be cancelled beforehand.

Who knows maybe one day they will decide to bring back some of these cancelled shows in some way or another. Hey if Cartoon Network can do it, so can other channels.

I have this silly Tron-verse headcanon, that in the Grid they have this hand signal that means ‘trust’ or ‘I trust you’, and it’s: make a fist with your thumb out (basically a sideways thumbs up sign) and point at a slight angle over your shoulder to your back, where your Identity Disc would be.

And it stems from ‘I would trust this program with my disc”.

because goshdarnit that is your memories and identity and everything you are, and as shown by Legacy and Uprising, can be easily snatched right off your back

I had to do this.

I`m totally TRONed right now. Uprising did this to me,it was just too great! I`m very very dissapoined in Disney`s politics towards animated series. WOY and Uprising deserve to countinue.Those bastards didn`t allow it.I still think we should fight,out favorite show depend on it.

Talking back to this art… That`s a photo redraw of me on latest Feis “Sweets of May”. I`m in love with Irish Dances,and I thought Tron can use some of those xD
