And some people wonder why even though I was decent at creating characters in a fandom I got out and don't really ever want to get back.
Because my fandoms I liked (Such as Naruto mostly but slightly Bleach at times as well as the RWBY FNDM) are slowly getting over run with tiny children (Ages 12-19) that don't understand like human kindness, human laws of proper conduct and just how to not be a little pissy infantile sounding creature. I just. People are fighting over canon characters they don't even have the right to own. Multiple people can have headcanons and get along. I have real life proof of this in the fact another fandom I got out of, for queerbaiting reasons, is shared with a friend of mine and as long as she keeps remembering to respect what I ship I in turn respect what she ships (Although I need to have a talk with her on this again I'm afraid to be honest because sometimes what she says actually hurts my feelings sometimes. But seriously like. This is why I think you need to be in college for some of these sites and even then people can just be really dumb sometimes, myself included. I'm not saying I'm perfect. I've done my fair share of taking sides over fictional characters (which I feel as a writer are important to people because it gives us a sense of belonging to something when we are attached to a character). But none the less it shouldn't stop us from being proper, kind human beings to one another. Something I fear the younger generation is forgetting more and more. It's why come fall break this year, or anytime I have my laptop and spare time, I plan on purging my account on here of Naruto folks in general bar a select handful. Why? I'm tired. I'm tired of finding a middle ground, of having to pick sides. I'm tired of being in the land of wars. I want some peace, some calm comradery over a topic we can all enjoy in our own way without any discrimination, hackeling, or harassment. I honestly am going to do the same with my Bleach follows as well. I'm just so incredibly tired of caring so much. It's time for me to care about me and my characters that I enjoy. I'm not an artist my any means but I will plan on writing about them more. Doing more fanfiction for me and my enjoyment. Doing my own personal stories by learning about the fandom characters I create. It's a process called learning and writing and just plain doing things without harming others.
Note if you like me following you (we talk once in a while, etc.) and you are afraid I might un-watch you on here. Talk to me. I'm generally one who hates to un-watch people because I enjoy supporting any form of art I can these days. But I've also learned in the last year that it is damn (pardon my language any children here) time I start taking care of my mental health first though. That means doing things my way and for my mental wellbeing first.
That being said. I love you all. Have a good evening/day/afternoon. And please be kind to your fellows, smile at a stranger, and do more than one good deed a day.

The Tiniest Dragon, Erin
