There is something that I feel needs to be addressed regarding fantrolls.
THERE IS A WRONG AND A RIGHT WAY TO GIVE CRITICISM.
I am so sick of seeing people leaving rude, hurtful comments on a Homestuck fan's art because there is something they don't like about it. If you really feel like something must be fixed you say it to them in a polite manner. Saying something like "At first I thought, "oh cool"....Then I read the description." or, "Your troll is stupid and ___ is wrong with it." is NOT OKAY. The correct way to do this would be to give FRIENDLY POINTERS. And don't expect someone to change their character just because you don't like something about it. It's THEIRS and they can do whatever they desire with it. Now I know there are some pretty awful fantrolls out there but it doesn't give anyone the right to go doing things like that. If they like their awful fantroll then let them be happy with it. It's not hurting a single person and they're having fun and that's what matters.
Which is why I absolutely loathe this: fuckyeahawfulfantrolls.tumblr.…
This blog demonstrates why the Homestuck fandom is considered one of the WORST. Instead of contacting the person and giving them some nice tips on how to better their character they post it on a public blog without their permission and fucking mock them. It makes me sick. I don't scroll through and laugh at the posts no matter how silly they are because all I can think is that some asshole could really be so rude as to do this to people who really haven't done anything to deserve it.
So keep that in mind before you decide to act like a fucking scumbag. I am so ashamed of this fandom sometimes.
So let's stop and think before we comment on a person's fantroll.EDIT:
Wow, thanks you guys. I didn't think this would get so much attention. And all of it was very positive. I'm really glad people stopped to read this and even took the time to discuss and favorite it. So sorry I can't go thanking every single person who put this in their favorites but I do appreciate it and I try to reply to every comment. You guys are awesome.
