I don't known what to say to this secret. It sucks that this incident has been so humiliating for you, I guess? Except that what you were doing was pretty shitty, so I hope you've learned something from it too.

It was your own fault.

I don't know why the fuck OTPs are such a serious topic in fandom. I mean, I have some, but something to actually get heated over? Nah.

Secret 1 - Fandom ship wars

[personal profile] transcriptanon 2013-09-16 10:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[Picture is a little girl crying as an adult puts a band-aid on her arm.]

For years, I've been a fan of a pairing that's hated. Hated because its fandom is oversized and notorious for bashing, wank, stomping on canon, and starting one-sided shipwars. Naturally, I hated the rival ship. It was more canon, more popular and its fans always seemed like the sane and reasonable ones. Always the victims of our bullshit. This badly chafed my ass.

So instead of a more mature alternative, I trolled an anon community, with an obvious strawman persona that shipped the pair I hated, and hated the pair I shippied. Just to feel better about myself and maybe gather up some counterarguments. Much of the community knew I was trolling, but a good number fell for it. I would sometimes feel bad for giving a bad reputation to my hated ship's fandom, but once my precious One True Pairing got slandered I went right back to trolling.

Then I tried trolling a different community, which was loaded with fans who hated my One True Pairing. Everyone who replied to my bait saw right through me, and one of them knew exactly who I was and what I was doing.

That incident was so humiliating for me, that I think about it almost every day, and get depressed over it.

Bonus secret: I'm almost eighteen.

It should have been embarrassing because that is some stupid juvenile shit. Honestly, I know you had better things to do with your time.

At least this can be a lesson to you. We all have to learn the hard way sometimes. We all do stupid things in our lives. It's not an excuse. It just is. Now maybe you can move on and do sometime more productive or fun with your time.

Good luck.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-16 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Seems like pretty typical behaviour of someone your age. That doesn't excuse it of course. The only difference is that you were humiliated when you were called out on it and most trolls are actually proud of the stupid shit they do.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-16 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh man, I did that once when I was like, 14 or something. These people on a forum I went to all the time were real assholes; they'd constantly make personal assumptions about you for liking that character, making patronizing comments and so on. So one day I created a new account, pretending to be like them, someone who hated my favourite character, and I made the most RIDICULOUS arguments, exaggerating what they were saying all the time, but just keeping it believable enough to not get suspected (I'd also post reasonable stuff on other topics, just to balance it out). I actually got a couple of them to start defending the character because they thought I was so ridiculous and didn't want to be associated with me in any way. I think that was after I compared the character to Hitler.

Wasn't the most mature response but hey, I got a couple of haters to lay off my favourite character for a while.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-16 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
So, you basically "turned on your own kind" and got bitten in the ass for it?

Sorry, I just can't muster a lot of sympathy. A lot of us have shipped things that people hated and not turned around and been complete dicks about it.

I probably sound mean but...

(Anonymous) 2013-09-16 11:01 pm (UTC)(link)
I wish people who were assholes for silly things, or told people to kill themselves over silly things would feel this way.

I wish people who think they're cute and edgy by spewing toxic shit at anyone and anything they don't like ("you like writing something I hate? RETARD") would feel this way.

sorry for this tirade. I just recently experienced a lot of online assholery directed at me recently and got jaded by the fact that people say the rudest stuff and then go "It's the internet I'm entitled to act this way"

I think it's time you put that behind you, OP. You seem to honestly regret it, so it should be okay. Most people have done stupid things in fandom at one point. Don't beat yourself up over it. There is far worse shit out there, like people stalking others, threatening to kill or rape them, etc.

Humiliation sucks, but tbh it sounds like you brought it on yourself. What you did was childish and you should've known better. That said, we've all said and done stupid shit we're ashamed of, so learn from this incident.

It's perfectly okay to dislike a pairing, but bashing that pairing is rude and not doing anything to make others like your pairing more. It's such a massive waste of time, too. Why not spend time on something you DO enjoy?

(Anonymous) 2013-09-16 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Learn from your well-deserved humiliation little one.
nyxelestia: Rose Icon (Default)

Well at least you learned from the experience, OP?

[personal profile] nyxelestia 2013-09-16 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I mean, most people in fandom have done some terrible shit at one point or another, especially if they've been here for a while or were here when they were young (both apply for me, guess how many regrets I have?). Hopefully, you learn not to go this again, and can even use your experience to help out other people from not descending into this same shit and/or getting caught up in messes started by other people.

That's what I do to make up for some of my reprehensible behavior in the past, and it has served me well and made me feel a lot better about myself in relation to my fandom activity. I still get embarrassed about some of the crap I did, but instead of curling up in a hole, I talk about it so that hopefully, others can know not to pull the same shit, or at least know what kind of fandom experience I'm coming from.
