What Makes A Fan A True Fan?So what makes a fan a true fan of something? That question can vary from person to person. Everyone has their opinion on what constitutes a true fan.What Makes A Fan A True Fan? by ~TigerFey
Here's my thoughts on what I think considers a true fan.
A fan is someone who enjoys a certain activity / show / franchise / sport team / the list goes on. A true fan can be someone who loves said things and not afraid to admit to liking parts that other fans might not.
Ex. The brony fanbase of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I am a brony and love the series. I like the creativeness artists / musicians / cosplayers do. Am a rabid fan? No. I see myself as a reasonable fan, one who is a fan and is not an ass or narrow-minded on it.
Speaking of which, the subculture of the brony fandom which includes Rule 34, gore pictures / stories, mature themes and shipping. This part of the fanbase gets a lot of flak from so-called "sane" bronies cause they aren't seen as "true" fans.
Okay, in my last post, I told that I'm planning on becoming a novelist to share many of my stories with the world. While I do have a lot of stories I want to write, some are series but those will wait after I write some one-shots, I have two horror ones I would like to get started and try to put a deadline to get them finished by next year before Central Canada Comic Con at the start of November. Speaking of C4, this year's had a Self-Publishing workshop that I attended and it was very informative and helpful. The free book version of the workshop is also very nice too.
I don't want to give away spoilers or too much information away on the plots. And these only have working titles for now.
"Fiona's Knight", takes place during the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. Got inspired from my interest in WWII history and Stephen King's "Christine".
"Princess Pegasus", inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Don't want to spoil too much of this one but two taglines I can vision with this one are "Be careful what you wish for" and "Some little ponies aren't friendly". Though the latter doesn't fully apply since the little ponies aren't "evil" per say.
I want to get writing them as soon as possible, but I'm still fleshing them out and filling gaps to avoid potential plotholes. And my modivation is kinda iffy at the moment.
