Things In The Fandom That Just Tick You Off
« on: January 20, 2015, 01:09:38 AM »
Do you see things in the LoK (or even Avatar in general) fandom that just makes you want to punch people? I certainly do.

Fanart:
1) When drawing "realistic" portraits of the characters, they make them look European (I say European because all white Americans are descended from Europeans). This is especially so when it comes to Asami. Sure, they may make her look gorgeous, but she is not European. She is very much Japanese in her design, learn that.

Fanfiction:
1) Hoo boy here we go. The biggest problem I see is with betrothal necklaces (especially in Korrasami fics). Betrothal necklaces are a tradition of the Northern Water Tribe, not the Southern Water Tribe. If you want a Southern Water Tribe character to give someone a betrothal necklace, please have them mention that it is ordinarily a Northern tradition to acknowledge it.

2) Misspelling of character's names or places (I see Zaofu misspelled a lot, despite it being in the title of an episode!). Seriously, if you or someone else does not know how to spell a name or place, look it up. *Sigh*

Shipping:
Oh dear lord don't even get me started on the shipping wars. I used to be a part of it, but not anymore. It's immature and childish.

I'll add more when I think of them. What ticks you off about things in the fandom? I'm curious.

I can let the betrothal necklace slide because we don't know that much about the Southern Water Tribe before the Fire Nation attack.

I was only deducing from what ATLA has mentioned about it when the Gaang was at the Northern Water Tribe.

Oh, here's one. Making Korra seem shorter than she is. Ugh. Korra is only an inch to an inch and a half shorter than Asami, she is NOT that short at all.

Oh and Avatar fans who say LoK was a bad show for various reasons. I think some people are letting nostalgia blind them. Luckily I was a teenager when ATLA first aired, so I can definitely say that both shows are great, but it isn't fair to compare the two at all. On top of it all, LoK definitely got shafted by Dickelodeon big time. I still say that if LoK got 20-25 episodes a season, it would have easily surpassed ATLA big time in terms of storytelling.

I don't like how people keep saying Korrasami should've been more obvious - it was fairly obvious to me, and Bryke literally could not go any further with it than what they did.

People hate you for liking that movie? Eh, I can see why, but that's not right. Only thing I liked about it was the soundtrack. *Shrug*

Oh yes, Korrasami haters don't realize they were limited in how much they could show of it. Actually, they did show it, it's all in their actions and facial expressions throughout books 3 and 4.

Azula/Character haters.

And I mean those ones that always show up in her/their posts (on wherever) with the same redundant, nothing useful to add to the conversation. Haters of any character are quite annoying, to be honest. We get that they don't have to like whoever, but that doesn't mean that they can act like a complete **** about it.

Shipping wars are stupid, too. They remind me of those stan wars with the fans of certain overrated Pop singers. Just annoying and a waste of time.

Incest shipping - I don't even need to explain that one because I'm sure that it's pretty obvious...

People still complaining over Korrasami being canon.

Well...


ALL HAIL THE BEAUTIFUL FIRE LORD AZULA!

Weeeelllllll... The only character I actually hate is Mako, but I have legitimate reasons. I don't bash on people who like him though. *Shrug*

Oh! People who think subtlety is piss poor writing. *Snort* NOPE.

There's no problem with hating a character (even though I don't), but some people like to take their hate to the next level.

I actually received a hate letter on another site.

The thing that bothers me the most with any fandom is how people endlessly flame something just because it opposes what they like.  It's cool if people don't like the same ships, characters, or whatever.  There are a few people who go to extreme so much that you feel ashamed to like the same ship.
If you want my Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter contact just ask! :D

tagging their hate.

I mean, I'm browsing this tag to enjoy the love, but half of the contents are complaints and hates and flame wars...

People who try and do analyses on the show, but they have such poor English that it makes it hard to read.

People who are so obsessed with a ship that they completely lose all sense of objectivity and base all of their opinions around their OTP and will just aimlessly hate on characters or plotpoints.

Considering how many fans on tumblr are international, I can usually forgive this for the level of effort being used to write in English, but it is a bit difficult to decipher at times. I sometimes give up in longer, more egregious rants.

This is why I don't write long texts in english, I repeat too much words because I know too less and I'm always unsure about the order of words.

What I dont like is over interpretation and allowing just one point of view.

When people get really snippy about a headcanon of yours.  It's one of the things that made me realize I had nothing in common with a tumblr-heavy fanbase like this because of the poor communication means. And my headcanon was very simple;  the belief that Lin was adopted before her father was ever confirmed. I can't even imagine what kind of strong reactions I would have gotten if they were a bit more serious headcanons,  although i've seen the reactions others have gotten and... no. Agressive fandom...

I make this blog post: http://theigdemon.tumblr.com/post/109442449485/the-evolution-of-how-the-makorrians-reacted-to-the

And some Makorra fan reblogs it trying to put it in their favor by saying "Even Korra is rooting for Makorra".

*Face Palm* Fans who do that and miss the point. *Sigh*

It kinda sounds like they're just joking. I wouldn't assume things.

Could be, but it's hard to tell without some sort of type face or image like "XD" or "lol" or ":P", so yeah...

Still, there are fans who miss the point of posts, like my post popular one: http://theigdemon.tumblr.com/post/109344431430/a-13-and-14-year-old-male-and-female-making-out

99% of the people who liked it and reblogged it get it, but there are a few who missed the point entirely by saying the Kataang kiss was fine. *Face plant* That wasn't the freaking point of my post. *Sigh*
