Through and exploration of Steven Universe, Harry Potter, Trollhunter, Lord of the Rings, and A Song of Ice and Fire, I discuss the what makes Fantasy such a different genre and how that makes it more difficult for some people to get into it.
As a result of the current state of fandom, we need to unite against the fury infecting our community.
Fans must never attempt to police the enjoyment of others.
If someone loves what we love, celebrate with them.
If someone loves something we don’t, let them be.
No one has a right to tell others how to feel about any book, movie, album, or artist.
We shouldn’t have to defend others, but we cannot tolerate this hate among our own.
Fandom should celebrate what we love, and never tear down what others love.
Build each other up, and always have the fun.
