submission: One fact that people seem to be overlooking, on both sides of this argument, is that what Loki did didn’t actually happen. It doesn’t matter if Loki killed 80 people in 2 days because it never happened. And fangirls would not be into him if he did actually destroy New York. Let people see him how they please.The issue is that fangirls are always fangirling over him in obnoxious ways which I, even though I am a Loki fangirl, find annoying. Fangirl to your friends; there’s no need to spam others.
I just heard about fans chasing Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch to a restaurant following a performance of Coriolanus. have been meaning to have a mini rant about this for a while and hearing that, now seems as good a time as any. so here goes….
I am a huge fan of Tom Hiddleston and of Benedict Cumberbatch but I would never ever dream of chasing them down the street or harassing them. For goodness sakes people, have some respect and some dignity! Do you really think any of your idols or anyone else for that matter will respect you as a person if you go wailing and screaming after them down the street???!!
And use your common sense, if an actor has just spent almost 3 hours or whatever performing live Shakespeare they are probably exhausted after and just want to go home. Yes it’s entertaining for us but please don’t forget this is their job. It’s like someone doing a days hard work and then trying to get home and being bombarded with people screaming and chasing them.
If you go to an event where there is the slightest chance of you meeting your idol/hero don’t go looking for them if they aren’t already there signing things or taking photos of their own free will. If they aren’t there then it’s pretty obvious that they probably just want to get home!!! If they are not there after/at the event meeting fans of their own free will they aren’t trying to engage you in a game of hide and seek so don’t go hunting high and low for a door they might pop out of, take the hint!!
They are not obliged to sign things or take photos with anyone and they don’t owe you anything.
Of course if you have the amazing experience of meeting someone who you are a fan of it’s difficult to not get excited and ‘fangirly’ BUT the person you are meeting is a human being just like you, them being famous does not change this, and they deserve respect, politeness and their own privacy and personal space as much as anyone else. And there is a huge difference between being a bit giggly and excitable and screaming at them and following them around. Use your brains and put yourselves in their shoes!
The only other people who act in this way are paparazzi and stalkers! Do you really want to be grouped in with people like that??
Acting in this way towards celebrities is probably very stressful and creepy for them. I know it would freak the hell out of me!!
This sort of ‘fan girl’ behaviour (and I mean the crazy crying screaming chasing fangirls) makes you come across as highly irritating,creepy,rude and intrusive and is giving us normal fans a bad name.
If you admire your idol as much as you purport to, then respect their privacy, feelings and personal space. They are human beings for goodness sakes.
Ah, I haven’t kept up lately but what exactly happened? You can rant about it here if you want.
Edit: Okay, I get what’s happening now and wow. That sucks for both Tom and Benedict, but unfortunately not surprising that some fans did that (i.e. supposedly chasing them down the street after the performance and just generally acting crazy).
submmission: I recently re-watched Thor again, and got to their fight scene where Loki snarls, “What happened to you on Earth that made you so soft? Don’t tell me it was that woman!” and when Thor remains silent, he continues, “Oh, it was, wasn’t it?! Well maybe, when we’re finished here, I’ll pay her a visit myself!”
Really fangirls? REALLY? You are really going to sit there and romanticize a guy who wants to commit genocide, kill his brother AND father, and on top of all that rape the woman he loves?!? [And make no mistake; that was a thinly veiled rape threat.] But you’ll demonize Thor and Odin to no end.
Personal preference? I can’t say much since I’m not that familiar with Dangan Ronpa but I don’t see anything wrong with it.
Because some fans try so hard to overlook his villainous qualities that make him a good villain to the point that it’s irritating (aka the ones that feel sorry for him 110% of the time/the ones that treat him like he can’t make any decisions himself). You don’t really seem like the ones I’m describing, though.
(I guess it also stems from the fact that I only like him as a villain; I don’t care about him to that extent)
au where fandom doesn’t make me dislike something i previously enjoyed
(Sorry for the late reply, I was busy with school)
I do respect your opinion but a lot of fangirls don’t act like that. A lot of them are sensible but a lot of them also excuse everything that their fave does.
Also, most ugh blogs don’t hate on the entire fandom, just the shitty antics.
i love how there’s literally nothing more controversial on this site than saying your annoyed by fandoms or something a fandom did or their creepy porno art and stories without a slaughter of ridicule meanwhile a notable percentage of fandoms shit on hipsters and fetishize the fuck out of gay men and harass the celebrities they claim to love and act so indignant when anyone tries to point this out
