FANDOMS.

You can't get away from them. They are everywhere. And no matter how much you love them or hate them, they will always be there.

And not everyone likes the same things.

Get over it.

Why should there even be a 'vs' issue? Why can't people like both? Or neither? Why is it so horrible for anyone to have a different opinion? Everyone that bashes other fandoms just makes their own look like shit--which gives the other side reason to bash you, too.

If someone hates on your fandom, there is a reason. Listen to it. Savour it like a piece of bad gristle. Think long and hard about it. Have you been a good example for your beloved drug of choice? Or have you been the asshole everyone despises, ruthlessly hacking anyone who thinks differently to bits?

There is no excuse to flame someone for being different. There is no excuse to call in your friends to tell that person how horrible they are. There is no excuse to send them hate mail. There is just no excuse at all when you are being the very creature you resent. It's fine to hate the work, but not the people who love it.

Just /think</ about your behaviour for a minute.

And then, tell the other side why they're right.

That's right, you heard me.

Tell them they were right.

And then, while they're still dazed (because Confusion was EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE), tell them what you still love about yours anyway, and then ask them to share their love for theirs.

Make love, not war.

Never before have I heard such inspiring words about anything on the Internet. I'm a a part of the Lion King fandom, and I see this sort of thing all the time. Everyone feels the need to go to war about whether or not Kopa was real or, if they're not doing that, they're treating him like he's their God while acting like Kiara's the antichrist. It's sickening, really. I really like both Kopa and Kiara the same, and I've actually been attacked a few times just because of that!

This is something I can definitely relate to.

THANK YOU! I can't go two feet around here with a comment that says something like "I'm right, you're wrong; go die"... Okay, there not that blunt but you get the picture. I completely agree with you that these flame-wars are just pointless.

>.< Sure, we all love different fandoms. For instance, I LOVE Hetalia, but that doesn't mean I hate other animes! We SHOULD make love, not war.

Good job! I really hate when someone liking for example Bleach argue with someone liking Naruto... I like them both... Though Bleach more but still!

I like both Hetalia and Homestuck. There is also the shipping fantards that make the fandoms I like, especially Total Drama Island look even worse with DuncanxCourtney vs DuncanxGwen shipping war. There is also Total Drama Island vs 6teen to an extent and FFVII vs FFVI. I agree with this artwork 100%. Spread the love, not the hate♥~

Yeah, I agree. Some of these comparisons are downright stupid. Harry Potter and Twilight aren't even in the same genre. The same goes for Homestuck and Hetalia. To be honest, I don't see the point of hating on someone's fandom unless it's through a thoughtful and honest critical analysis.

Lol.


Star Wars vs Star Trek. I'm not interested in any of them, so I have no opinion of them.
Hetalia vs Homestuck. I like Hetalia better, but I didn't finish the Homestuck series, so... yeah.
Twilight vs. Harry Potter. I haven't read Twilight EITHER, so again, yeah.

Though it's not like I flame people if they like Homestuck or Twilight <XD

Exactly. Thank you so much. It always bothers me to extreme degrees the people who go out of their way to bad mouth a fandom while talking up their own. I've always figured it's apples and oranges. If you don't like something don't get butthurt about it and run around raging at people who do, just enjoy the stuff you do like and leave people to enjoy the stuff they like.

Bro I love you.

My ex tried to hurt my feelings with "Homestuck is stupid." My reply was "Yes it is, but there's also a lot of drama> The stupidity is a nice, humourous cushion. Thanks for the input though." He then proceeded to break up with me. xD

Point is this is what you should do. You shall be praised as the God of the new world. <3
