stop fan wars

Okay, so. I’m getting really tired of the idea that “true” Star Wars fans “know” that TFA was a terrible movie, that Jar Jar Abrams singlehandedly ruined the franchise, that Rogue One was everything TFA wasn’t or whatever. I’m honestly sick of it.

I grew up watching Star Wars. I can remember being in diapers and seeing Darth Vader on the TV screen, and I remember my parents taking me and my brother out of school early on opening day to see RotS. I loved Padmé, and Luke, and all the Skywalkers. I was a fan for years, and when Lucasfilm announced that they were sold to Disney and there would be new movies coming out, I was over the moon. More movies! Oh man! I wonder what they’ll do next! I was optimistic even when people on the Internet were screaming about how Disney would turn Star Wars into a musical cartoon. Having seen The Avengers and enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean series, I knew Star Wars was in good hands under the Mouse.

TFA came out, and when I saw it…it was even better than I hoped it would be. I was giddy and ecstatic over it all in a way I hadn’t been in a long time. In fact, I saw it a total of five times in the theater, a very rare thing for someone who sees most movies once in the theater and is okay with never watching them again. To this day, when I pop in my TFA Blu-ray, I enjoy it just as much as that first time at the movies. It’s just…a really great film to me. I love it a lot. And it’s so special, especially since it introduced two of my favorite characters to me. I think JJ Abrams did a great job with Episode VII, and the professional critics who made the movie sit at over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes would agree with that idea.

You’re not a “better” fan for hating TFA. You’re not “edgy” for trashing on JJ Abrams and claiming that anyone who enjoys the movie doesn’t “get” Star Wars. You can hate the movie all you want, of course; everyone has their own reasons for disliking what they dislike, and I’m not about to force you to like something you don’t. However, what I will tell you to do is to let go of this idea that “true” Star Wars fans only like certain Star Wars movies, that certain movies deserve to be disregarded while others should be placed on a pedestal if you want to keep your Official Star Wars Fan Badge™. Guess what? TFA exists! TFA is an official Star Wars movie! People who enjoy TFA…are real Star Wars fans!

Anyway, I love TFA, and I’m so, so excited to see what happens next in Episode VIII. It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!

Seriously?

Alright, Melon awards. Those happened. Yet, every time I have to bring something up it’s because of fans. BTS won album of the year, and I’m already seeing EXO fans acting so rudely towards BTS fans. Saying they “shouldn’t have won the award, EXO should have!!” and just being so mean, and there are some BTS fans acting that way back towards EXO fans, I acknowledge that. 

STOP THIS

I am so sick of people acting this way in these fandoms. Do not try and say BTS didn’t deserve that award, they’ve been working their asses off for something like this. EXO had great albums this year, but do not downgrade BTS just because EXO didn’t get one award. EXO literally swept up a good amount of awards for their categories they were included in. EXO won multiple huge awards last night, and I can’t believe fans are going at each other because a single award went to BTS. EXO has also won a bunch of awards the past few years, other groups can win, too. 

Why don’t you all actually support each other?

I mean, these groups are here for the same reason. To make music others enjoy. And they’re accomplishing it. Stop going at each other’s throats, say “congratulations on the win” and move on if you can’t handle anymore than that. Say you’re happy they won, and support the rise in both groups. 

Do you think they enjoying seeing us all act this way towards each other? Do you think they’re happy seeing you insult each other and be rude and violent in their name? They want to cheer over their win with all of us, but how do you think they feel when they look at comments or fans reactions where they’re insulting another fandom or another fandom is being so harsh to them? It’s not support if you’re insulting others in the process.

Both of these groups trained for years. They did not debut for you to become fans and trash other people. 

Be the bigger person and stop.
