I saw this post and I knew I had to say something about it.
I’ve been in fandoms for ten years now. I’ve seen this happen a dozen times before. Hell, do you know what precipitated the fandom war between Hetalia and Homestuck?  It was Hetalians who fandomhopped to Homestuck, who a) denounced Hetalia for being stupid and childish and saying Homestuck was way cooler, making Hetalians resent the new Homestucks, and b) annoyed the hell out of older Homestucks who in turn came to resent Hetalians and what they brought to their precious fandom. Many a friendship was ruined thanks to this stupid rivalry.
But we’ve grown since then. We get along now! It’s fantastic!
So how about you open your eyes and DON’T REPEAT THOSE SAME MISTAKES?
If you’re a Homestuck fandomhopping to a new fandom, great! I hope you enjoy your new fandom! BUT DON’T MAKE FUN OF OR PUT DOWN THE FANS WHO DECIDED TO STAY. They don’t owe it to you to abandon what makes them happy. It’s none of your business What they’re into.
On the flipside, if you’re in another fandom seeing a large influx of Homestucks, welcome them. Some will be stupid and obnoxious and annoying. But that’s just part of any explosive fandom growth regardless of where the new fans are coming from. The larger a fandom gets the greater the chances of encountering an asshole. It happens. Don’t blame an entire fandom for it.
In the end we are all dorks who really like dorky things. Don’t be a jerk. Don’t be elitist. Whether you’re coming or going, be kind and respectful to your fellow fans. We are here to have fun, not fight.
I know a lot of you won’t listen to me. It’s human nature. But I hope at least some of you will take this to heart.
And Homestuck, Hetalia is always here for you. <>
