yeah we have to admit — amnesia fandom had 200.4% more drama for no apparent reason ugh
I know every fandom is gonna have it’s share of toxicity and drama, but Amnesia took it to a whole new level. Then again I’m not the most reliable source, I haven’t been in many fandoms at all.
Either way it was ridiculous.
How perfect though. Talking about how the good old Amnesia days weren’t so good - there’s proof right there. People turn on a dime on you if you think you’re ‘not on their side.’
- Mandus: I don't like Justine being drawn as sympathetic
- Mandus: I don't like Alexander being drawn as abusive
- Mandus: I don't like Daniel as submissive
- Mandus: AND I REALLY DON'T LIKE OSWALD AS A YOUNG TWENTIES SOMETHING BISHIE
- Mandus: wheres my new call out i have opinions on things and must be stopped
this. this is exactly how i’ve been feeling lately.
It’s a shame things came to this point, especially as Amnesia is and probably will always be my main fandom (and favorite game series). But I caught myself getting nostalgic today and stopped to think how bad it really was back then.
I began to think today about the concept of the “good old days.” Not just in the classic sense we know it has, but days that could be considered as few as one or two years ago. A time we idolize in our minds as wonderful, when upon closer inspection, wasn’t as perfect as our minds made us believe.
Having one of those moments right now, as I reminisce on my Amnesia fandom days.
I’m really invested in the idea of elves having twitchy ears that reflect their emotions. I’m also invested in the idea of elves having a hard time reading humans because their ears don’t move—and really, that’s like talking to someone who never moves their eyebrows for them.
