Trashy 70s & 80s smut, silent film, Victorian actors & randomness
Okay so this is REALLY IMPORTANT and I need everyone who considers themselves a Mash/Mabastian fan to read this. I always thought this ship fandom to be the calm and rational one, we were always the ones to see all sides and react reasonably to spoilers and scripts and have hardly ever reacted to anything with hate. But right now? I can honestly say that I am, for the first time, so incredibly ashamed of this fandom, and if this brought any negative consequences to our show or our ship, it’ll technically be all our own fault for helping fuel it.
Good God, this has been going on?? O__o This makes me glad I just watch the fucking TV show every week and leave it at that. Maybe because my teen fandom years were waaay before Web 2.0, this whole “interaction with your show via social media” is bizarre and foreign and breaks through that wall I like to keep between me and the various creative teams. They do their job, and I’ll do mine - which is to watch the show, or not to watch if it eventually jumps the shark, etc. Whatever happened to fanfic, etc as a way to deal with fan butthurt? Must the show personnel get stalked and abused? WTF?
