This is probably super weird and rambly and I’ll regret posting it later but shit, it’s really late and my boyfriend still isn’t home from work…
So I recently tore through the Hunger Games trilogy like a mad person (bf read them too) and found myself completely obsessed and so excited to go drown myself in a new fandom like I’ve loved doing since I was a tween…
But like, I can’t do it. I’ve tried really hard to go find good tumblrs and have good discussions with people… but like, this entire fandom (or seemingly 92%) are CHILDREN. Like 13 year old girls. AND MOST OF THEM DON’T GET IT. AT ALL. They focus on entirely irrelevant things and miss the entire point of the novels. It’s like, infuriating.
and the weirdest fucking thing is… I’m really jealous of them.
When I was between the ages of 14 and all the way to 19 the ONLY places on the whoooole internet I had to do my fandom things and be a tween and say stupid things was on Livejournal and FanForum.net (I was a moderator of the Boy Meets World and 7th Heaven boards! woop woooo)
Oh my god what I would have done if I had something like Tumblr at my fingertips. I used to spend ALL of my time not in school, after school practice, whathaveyou, I was on my computer making wallpapers and avatars and writing fanfiction and it was the greatest thing ever! But looking back, there were only like a couple hundred people on each of those boards.
A couple of these kids who have Hunger Games tumblrs post on this bitch ALL DAY LONG… and I just can’t wrap my brain around it. HOW DO YOU ANSWER 20 CONSECUTIVE ASK BOX MESSAGES PUBLICLY? BETTER QUESTION: WHY?
I hate them all. I hate them because I’m not 16 anymore and I totally didn’t appreciate it enough when I was
