wtf fandoms

being in a fandom for more than a few years is kind of a surreal experience, honestly. you see fanart that you’ve sent in texts years ago, you see posts that you qualify now as ‘classics’ because of how old they are, you see people getting excited over new information that, honestly, you’ve known for a long while… you see one of those same-old same-old arguments bubbling up between people in the fandom and you just think to yourself “oh not again”, and then you lean back in your rocking chair, watching from the sidelines like your joints ache too much from all the battles of your past. a fuckin fandom grandparent. someone get me some applesauce

All I want is a main character to be gay.

I don’t want one of the ‘main’ side characters within the show, I want the actual main character in which the entire show revolves around.

I don’t want the entire show to be about them being gay, I want the show to be about something entirely different. And maybe in season 2 they meet this cute other character and they fall in love, and it’s just a little side-on thing which isn’t really important to the story other than they’re happy.

I don’t want them to be gay entirely for the shock factor, or some cheap sex scene. I want cute PG gay couple who are healthy and happy.

I don’t want it suggested that they’re together in some cryptic frendship/relationship way. I want 100% undenialable gayness. I don’t want queer baiting either.

And I want them both to stay alive.

Is that too much to ask for?

Things We Don’t Tell You When You First Join The Fandom Until It’s Too Late :))

applicable to any fandom

  • you won’t get sleep, you won’t get free time, and you won’t go outside ever again
  • you unknowingly joined a cult
  • you can’t ship that without offending someone
  • you increase your vocabulary with nonsensical terms (for ex: quiznak)
  • “have you met our lord and savior [insert fandom favorite]?”
  • tbh, the lord and savior of the fandom can’t save you from SMUT
  • you’ll learn inside jokes and memes that won’t make sense out of context
  • you will cry. you will get angry. you will feel happy. you will be gettin all the feels
  • get ready to be gay bc omg they are perfect human beings
  • you may not survive the fanwars
  • we can’t explain certain things. we can’t explain or defend that one problematic but legendary fanfic (milk fic flashbacks)
  • we also can’t explain the problematic fave but he/she is here to stay
  • do you remember what life was like before the fandom? 
  • [indistinct screaming]
  • fan theories will keep you up late
  • your ass belongs to the fandom now.
  • you can’t escape haha
  • you don’t want to escape…ha ha
  • the fandom can be squishy and soft and feel like a family instead of a war zone
  • be ready to be offended
  • this fandom will have a huge impact on you, most of the time it’s positive. it may seem scary at first but you learn to love and accept it. so enjoy it before it dies (MCR where u at)
