I know I have friends who enjoy the teen wolf fandom, and ship the ship that I'm currently refusing to name.

so I just wanted to let you know that if you ever see my vitriol on tumblr and it makes you feel bad, just remember: I like you. and if (when) I firebomb that entire fandom to the ground, I'll smuggle you out first. gently. there will be cookies.

but absolutely no Kool-aid.

I stopped watching it, I couldn't deal with the omgreally and the whysobadddd anymore. I love reading your hate! That sounds kinda bad, doesn't it?

Here, have some jdm.

lmfao *squish* and thanks for the jdm.

I still watch it because I'm a masochist (that's literally the only valid explanation at this point). I might not even hate the show so much (I'd probably be completely indifferent) if it weren't for the fandom. I can't get over the crack that they're smoking. it's boggling, and occasionally my rage is incandescent. lol. sometimes I think I'm crazier for being angry about it than they are for being crazy in the first place.

I haven't seen the show, but I'm glad you bring offers of cookies before destruction.

Why the vitriol? I'm not in the fandom because I didn't like the show and so I'm not fannish about it but I'm curious about what's getting you all worked up.

so, one of the two guys in the main ship (Derek, the other is Stiles) now has a canonical love interest and people are throwing a shit fit, which...*yawn*, right? it's not even that I ship the guy with this chick, but their objections are making me crazy - the latest is that they cast an actress that LOOKS like Stiles and that they're patterning that whole het relationship after the slash one (which they imagined up in the first place - the characters hardly interact). the whole fandom has the most pronounced sense of entitlement that their ship become canon that I've seen yet, and coupled with how UTTERLY DELUSIONAL they also are, it just makes me want to cut a bitch. I spend a lot of time shouting "really? what? really?" at my dash. it's rabid tinhattery, without a reason for them to have put on their tin hats to begin with.

Rabid tinhattery is a wonderful phrase.

*huddles in a corner of TW fandom with her stuffed animals* I feel quite proud right now at my follow choices on tumblr, because I haven't been getting any of the crazy!! Or at least, all I see is people reblogging the crazy in order to LOL/scream at it. So there's that. I totally feel you on the tinhatting. Really, all it makes me want to do is write spiteful het porn. :D

PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR SMUGGLE LIST CUZ I LIKE COOKIES, is what I'm saying.

I just went to look at your tumblr and lol'd.

The tfln one is perfect.

ETA: While I tot's ship it I don't actually watch the show (I watched 6 episodes said fuck this shit and went and read fic, not even sorry) the fandom is batshit and I avoid it like a shameful cousin at a wedding.

The only downside to only reading fic is not enough pretty men being shirtless (but tumblr!) and not enough Posey as Scott whom I love idg the hate cause he's so adorable.

From: [identity profile] thatotherperv.livejournal.com
lol I hate both Scott and Posey, but find him eminently more forgivable than the fandom's insanity itself, so I'll let it pass :P

really, it's more accurate to say I find him annoying and completely devoid of the gravitas we're supposed to believe he has. I think the hate is just a transfer emotion.

If I were at all capable of not devouring thousands and thousands of words per week in TW fic, I'd have tumblr savioured all this crap ages ago. Ship wars bore me, tinhattery drives me up a wall, and fan entitlement makes me want to curl up under my bed and hide until they go away.

And yet I can't stop reading all the fic D: I so wish some of it didn't push my buttons so very well, ugh.

Fuck Teen Wolf, seriously.

lol *high fives* same here, although for me it's more like I keep EXPECTING it to push my buttons but most of it turns too schmoopy when I'd rather have it be like...sick, twisted and wrong. lol. I keep reading it anyway, because I live in perpetual hope that someone will actually give me teh dirty.

WHY IS THIS FANDOM SO VANILLA

I honestly don't know why I'm still in that fandom. I'm completely in love with the cast and can happily watch the show till the world ends, and read the fic because omg there's some really amazing fic, but certain portions of the tumblr fandom have gone completely batshit. I have never felt so ashamed of being a multishipper before (not even in Suits and that's saying something) and I find myself taking breaks from tumblr/twitter just to escape the second-degree-separation exposure I get to the wank. I'm not even getting any of the direct hate; I just see it pop up on my dash when people I follow respond to it. It's really harshing my mellow.
