I’m really sorry, but I’m going to be taking a (approximately) one week hiatus from all my rp blogs. I’m going to AnimeNext which means travelling 4+ hours on Thursday and then back on Sunday night. I’ve been running low on spoons this week anyway and I want to save some up for con if I can by doing as little in the days leading up to it as possible. Plus I want to factor in a bit of time to relax afterwards and regain all the spoons I’m sure to lose while I’m there.
Basically, 1 week hiatus, should be back some time around Tuesday.
Also if anyone else is heading to AnimeNext in NJ as well, hmu!
I’ll still be around for plotting and talking in IMs though! So talk to me there if you want!!
If you’ve been in the MCL fandom for a while, then you probably have noticed it. Blogs are losing motivation, more and more people are leaving, negativity is at an all-time high and ‘community’ is at an all-time low. This fandom has been getting worse and worse by the minute.
It seems like every little thing that happens must be criticised over, every bit of drama must be analysed and and any sense of positivity in the situation is being overlooked. For the past few months, myself and others have noticed the growth in ‘negativity’ in this fandom and with more and more people just growing tired of it-
It needs to stop. All the drama, all the conflict and hostility needs to stop. Now, it’s not everywhere, I’m not saying that. And I’m also not saying that everyone is doing this or being like this, that is definite. But no one can deny that this is an ongoing issue that has effects on many within the fandom.
Now this needs to be said now.
Yes. You are allowed to voice your opinion. Yes, no one can take that away from you, it’s freedom of speech. But there becomes a steep line between freedom of 'speech’ and the freedom to 'cruelty’.
It feels like something that is supposed to be a community is slowly becoming a competitive battleground where it becomes survival of the fittest. Where the weak are picked off, the strong are targeted and those in the middle must fend for themselves and try to keep away from the violence.
Watching it all unfold is so stressful.
It seems like everyday, someone has to express their hate for *something* and some days are worse then others. And it comes to a point where it feels like no one supports one another. It grows to become exhausting, characters are undervalued, hate spreads around like wildfire and it just doesn’t stop.
This fandom has changed a lot since I first arrived. Or at the very least, it was more subtle. Now the cracks are more visible then ever and it makes people want to run away from it.
As someone who wants this community to thrive, the only way to solve this issue-is to stop the conflict.
I’m aware, it’s much easier said then done. There will always be conflict. There will always be something someone will be angry about.
But if we can all be just a little bit more tolerant.
A little bit more sympathetic.
A lot more kinder
And that slight bit…more aware, more 'together’ in the fandom, not hiding in corners and scowling at what goes wrong and what contradicts our ideas, but coming together a little bit more,
Then maybe we can bring this fandom together again.
And To certain people; You don’t have to like everything. You don’t have to agree with everything or everyone. You don’t have to like an event or like an outfit or a character.
But you sure as hell could try to make this place just one bit more comforting and appreciate the work that goes around.
drops by real quick. so! i’m sorry for not spending time on here but, i’ve lost my muse for the muses on this blog right now. i’m going to be on my other blog @onefxrth until i get them back. i hope you all understand
With the 12th album title song, Sniper, Shinhwa sets a new personal record with 10 music program Trophies. It’s the goodbye for Shinhwa’s 12th album “WE” promotions TT.. Thank you Shinhwa for this wonderful comeback ♥
So, I had an appointment with a doctor who specialises in trans healthcare, and she approved me for hormones!! I’ll hopefully be starting testosterone next week, if nothing comes up! It’s been 2 years or so since I first came out and I’m so excited to finally get to start making the physical changes to make me feel more like myself!
Also I’ve been looking for a reason to use this amazing Kirby icon and I’m so glad this was it
Uh..I’ve already said everything I prepared so I’m in big trouble now. On the way to the awards show, my member Dongwan asked if I can shout “Shinhwa forever”, but I don’t think I should act so flippantly on an awards show like this. I’ve already thanked most of the people I want to previously but I missed out my parents and family. Thank you to my parents, who gave birth to me and raised me. As well as all the directors, writers and actors that has allowed me to act till now, thank you. Happy New Year. Thank you.
