How do you feel abt deh -a former deh fan but was scared away bc of the hate towards it but still jams out to the music occasionally
honestly?? i’m in the same situation lmao. i have mixed feelings about it for the same reasons you do. like i love listening to the cast album and i’ll reblog the occasional deh post bc i still have a tie with it (i mean, i saw it in person, it’s amazing) but i think the combination of both the fandom being a bit overwhelming for me (as most large fandoms are) and the general hate for it, especially in the fandoms i’m in right now, drove me away just like you. and i guess the longer and more that i’m detached from it, the more i see the flaws in its blander music blend and some of the narrative. so i don’t know. i have no backbone when it comes to opinions but have ultimately been swayed a tad away from deh bc i’m in fandoms like great comet and falsettos lmao sorry this was pretty ranty bc i think about this a lot for wahtever reason
tldr i don’t hate deh but i’ll still enjoy it, but probably just in private w/o fandom interaction? i’m not in love with it like others are, but that’s ok! deh is an important show to a lot of people and i’ll respect that without actively shitting on it, y’know?
also, if you still like deh but are just scared to like it, distance yourself from people who will judge you and surround yourself with people who love it as much as you do! don’t let other people/fandoms try to control what you like. just. like what you like and ignore what you don’t.
that being said i do still feel very. very. very. v e r y. bitter about the tony’s. very. aaaaaaa
