I am proud…….
Realizing that I am a part (first time fangirl) of a huge fandom….diverse that is! Differing in thinking….differing in judgment but we all are one in supporting RJ and Maine. The” language” we speak may differ from each other because of the so-called individual differences but these actually distinguish us from one another… Hey, I may speak a language different from yours but that doesn’t give me the edge or even the thought that I am above everyone else who may not understand my “tongue.”
If I may say, we are all in equal footing here only because we all gathered here in this fandom with only one reason. Well, outside the fandom, you could be who you are – a student fighting for the highest honors, laborer, professional artist, professor, doctor, vendor, regular employee or a politician…. Actually we come from all walks of life and the followings unbelievably cut across all social classes. Interestingly, that’s something I am always proud of joining the bandwagon.
The so called diversity in this fandom makes it inimitable (I guess)…we should be delighted that we have this unprecedented and inadvertent “coming together.” All for the love of two individuals who are pretty much trying to fulfill their so-called DESTINY…and we are with them perhaps in making that happen……..it’s happening though so we must be happy!
Being aware of the ongoing politics in this fandom…. Honestly, I’ve never heard of such really exist but alas, it does and is existing. Arrgghh……the thinking fandom that I thought was just a mere “meeting place” for fans/supporters like me has become an arena of envy, power trip and opposing opinions !!! The infighting….just makes my heart bleed for Aldubnation. Yes, the disagreement….the rivalry amongst members….got me in a culture shock ….what the heck?
This is one hell of a fandom with beautiful people but from where I sit, it now feels like hell!!! It’s burning and I see people spitting fire at each other just to get above the rest… It’s a pity but I can still handle the heat though….all for the love!
Hhhmmm…..the blaming game! Lions trying to harass other lions for their own selfish gain! And oh, by the way, “yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer.” I can only assume, some have actually perfected the art of discrediting other rival accounts at the expense of independent and small accounts. What is there to fight about when all we want is for our idols to have their forever… pointing your fingers at someone doesn’t make you more truthful and in the know…..
Has pride got something to do with the present ruckus within the fandom? Bruised ego, yes? Pardon me but I would have to say this, that feeling of being superior is basically a telling sign of being “authoritarian.” Hey guys! In this small world you and I belong to, you don’t control people and tell them what to do or say…… even how implicit the act may be.
I’d like to believe that in this fandom, we still have the freedom to speak even if it means no one’s going to agree with my point of view (as long as it’s respectfully done). Why is using an HT in conjunction with the official HT such a “taboo?” When I find it relevant, I guess I have the free will to use any other HT to support my idols (just saying though)…… Well, it takes zero effort to respect other people’s choices, just so you know! Here’s a thing, you can actually take off your blinders so you may see a better view of the world we all (as fans/supporters) have tried to build. Know that blinders are especially made for horses only.
Oh before I forget, the one sided support…………pretty peculiar, yes? Haist………it doesn’t necessarily have to work this way! Equal treatment guys (whether projects together or individually)…. If you love the couple, it should not be…… one is above the other!!!
For healing..……..meet at a common ground. Honestly, I know…yes, I know that differences in views and beliefs spark misunderstanding amongst the members but these don’t have to be personal. Innuendos may just trigger division…….didn’t we come here in this fandom to unite? Always for the love, yes?
Hey guys, we didn’t come in this fandom to disappoint each other or leave a bad taste in each other’s mouth…… Can we just be the thinking fandom that we are without hurting each other’s ego……just live and let live! We can always respect each other, yes?
Anyhow, I have no regrets though associating myself in this fandom coz I found my niche with people I am comfortable sharing my ideas with and who probably speak the same language as mine.
Everybody is someone.
