mojotastic: (SV- Allison Mack Hates the Poor!!)
So I was originally writing up a post about going to see Allison Mack in Apple Cover over the weekend but then I got side tracked by real life stress today and now I'm catching up on the Chloe fan kerfuffle and laughing and shaking my head. So this post will be about that instead with my Apple Cove stuff to come tomorrow. (I KNOW GUYS MARK YOUR CALENDAR. lol no one cares)

As funny as I find most of this (and it's pretty funny) it also bums me out. Especially after my lovely experience with everyone at Apple Cove. We weren't all one type of Chloe fan and we managed to eat Greek food and unsucessfully try to hail cabs and not murder each other. OMG it's not even a good TV show. We're not fighting over Shakespeare here guys. This is a show that can count among it's plotlines FAKE BABY and UNDERGROUND RAILROAD.

The thing that I always really liked about my/our corner of the fandom is how we stuck together. We sort of felt like the underdogs, just like Chloe herself. In my time in SV fandom, I've seen people ship all kinds of Chloe pairings. Chlex. Chlark. Chlionel (Ok that's mostly just me). Chlollie. Chavis. Chlois although that is more a theory than a ship but let's just go with this.

The cool thing about being a Chloe fan always used to be that we were all pretty chill with multi-shipping. Let's not ruin the one good thing we got out of this show. BE COOL BBS.

I think a good rule of thumb is to just not be an asshole. Not that hard.

You don't like such and such pairing or such and such thing? Coolio. No one cares. You love such and such pairing? Awesome! I still don't care but I hope it brings you joy. Let's not be so invested in the opinions of others. I know the "SOMEONE IS WRONG ON THE INTERNET" urge can get so strong sometimes but at those times ask yourself "Am I being a douche?" If the answer is yes (and you will know when it is) then just take a deep breath and realize that contrary to what facebook/twitter/blog culture tells us, we don't ACTUALLY need to post every thought we have. Sometimes censoring is just being polite.

The show is almost over and I can guarantee, because I have been following (if not watching the last two years) this terrible mess so long that not everyone will be happy how it ends. Probably no one will. I'm personally holding out for rocks fall, everyone dies. So instead of making even the fandom for this shitty show shitty can we just BE COOL? Please? I just want to be like that chick in Mean Girls and bake a cake full of rainbows and get the world to sing in perfect harmony.

Dammit Smallville fandom, this is why we can't have nice things.

ETA: Decided to unlock the post because I stand by my "please let's not be douches" public service announcement.
