I've been bogged down with negativity lately, especially with my personal life. Yes, most of my TD stuff is in storage, because I feel the fandom is getting too intense, I mean in the negative way. First off, there is intense bashing on people with different opinions. I did see the TDAS finale, it wasn't the best to say the least. Ever since it aired, the Mike bashing escalated highly. I do think the portrayal of MPD with him is highly unrealistic. There is no reset button for mental disorders . It's just not logical and some people do think that way, and it's not safe in reality. Also touchy subject matter as a stereotype or label can also be quite insulting to people who suffer from them, and they like it kept personal. It doesn't mean he is a bad character if the writers work with him more. Same with Zoey. They are neutral characters to me, which means I'm not a die hard fan, nor do I hate them to the point of death. They are just meh, boring and sometimes annoying. I like Dawn a lot more and she deserve another chance instead of screenhogger Zoey.
That is not the point here, the real reason about this fandom that bothers me the most is the attitude towards REAL people due to their opinions is disgusting! Tumblr is the worst, treating to end friendships and feeling the need to yell at them for being stupid. You do realize these people have feelings too, and you treat them like you're above everyone. Some can take this very hard. This is practically bullying and people actually commit suicide because of it. Besides I'm going through a lot with overload of homework due to finals and a serious budget, so I barely have a social life anymore. I don't need this added to it. I can't take all this hate! I want to do what is best for me and what makes me happy. I will draw some characters from the show, well my favorites that is. Unlike you uppity fanatics, I want to make my art hobby an actual career, and that is what I am going to college for. So I'm making use of my talent. This wipeout is to start out fresh with new original art plus some fan works. I'm also leaving the TD fandom temporarily until Pakitew Island airs.
Have a good day, peeps!
