Alright I’m going to make a useless long post. In response to magicalfangirlworld, but also to all of you still feeling hate for us.
WOW O__O How artless you are magicalfangirlworld. Your Goddess Nonchan (as you specifically called her) is actually lurking on the YHF and stalking people’s account in another place to get those private videos, when she admitted she hate forums and wouldn’t visit them anymore because she doesn’t need them. Which shows the model of honesty she is. But this of course must be ignored. We are the lazy bad guys. -_-
And then you all wonder why we felt a little irritated with people like that. I don’t think we were mean to anyone (new or not) for years, before last February when these kind of posts became frequent. I suggest you look at your own attitude before founding any judgments.
To make things clear for once, we were not hating on every single Post-Olympic fans. For more simplicity I’ll make a
n already madelist of the most annoying things we had to deal with :
-Skaters getting their Instragram and twitter being trolled by Yuzu selfies requests
-Dozens of half naked Yuzu gifs
-Multiple text posts telling what would your ideal Yuzu date be like.
-Tons of video requests. Now I want to stop here before you get on your high horse. Because we had to say “no” to most of the requests doesn’t mean we wanted to keep videos for ourselves. Most of them are not on Youtube anymore so we have to upload, and this alone takes a lot of time. Also most of them are unlisted or come from private twitters and don’t belong to us. Yet I saw many of you posted these videos in such an exposed place like tumblr which is disrespectful for the uploaders. And most of them had already several accounts being taken down. So yes we have to be extra careful if we don’t want all of their hard work to be deleted so quickly. That’s why we can’t share it to whoever ask.
It was easier when we were a small community, but it’s almost impossible to fulfill so many people’s requests now. Still we received a lot of hate for this which is so unfair imo.
Even more unfair when we actually insulted NO ONE and the few so called “rude” posts I made (like 3 or 4) were nothing compared to the “old bitches” and “fuck just link the video” we received not only publicly but also anonymously.Yes you feel irritated when opening your inbox everyday being freely harassed by all these anons. And we are the one bashing? I want you to find a post where we insulted anyone. Even though I made a somehow difficult apology post, still it’s not enough? What do you want then??
What did you initially expect from us? Yay “welcome to all of you!” while looking at the amount of atrocity in the tag?
It’s tough to get used to a situation overnight when all of this came out of literally nowhere.
I wish you could understand how difficult it is to get used to this instead of hating. It’s really painful, and we need time. I ask for patience from the 2 sides. Anyway I think we both received enough hate.
(As usual, sorry for not being able to write a well constructed or argumentative text)
I agree there is very much that is objectionable in magicalfangirlworld’s post, but I don’t think it is fair to attack nonchan in your response, just as I felt it was unfair when you were attacked over the video sharing issue or accused of hating all new fans. I don’t understand your accusations or this sudden hate towards nonchan.
Why would you think nonchan needs to lurk on the forum/someone’s account to get videos? Wasn’t she already making gifs and translating videos even before the forum existed? I recall seeing posts promoting the newly established forum in April/May last year, but nonchan was already making gifs when I came across tumblr in late 2012. Furthermore she lives in Japan and she should be able to record TV broadcasts or know other Japanese fans with whom she can share resources. And I thought most of the fans who have been fans for sometime know the accounts that upload and share videos—I’m not the most resourceful person around and even I have followed many of these accounts and their reappearances after they get deleted by Youtube over the last few years.
I’m sorry to read that you got so much hate that was uncalled for publicly and in your mailbox but that is no reason to start inflicting hate on someone who isn’t responsible for the hate flung at you. I really think you were very patient and kind to answer many of those anon questions and requests at the start and I wish some of the haters could be more appreciative of how much you had and still do contribute to the tag. I also have moments when I wish we could go back to how it used to be, before there was all this drama and negativity and posts describing Yuzuru’s actions as porn but I have come to accept that things have changed. There are things I dislike but there are also more people making nice edits in different styles and more people doing translations. I understand it is probably much more difficult for you because you have been on tumblr longer and more actively and have contributed much more to the tag here. I do wish you the best and hope people can stop hating on you and that it would be possible for you to stop hating as well.
Let’s party fellow Yuzu fans! All of the old fans are almost gone. We won!! Now we can do whatever we want. Yuzu doesn’t belong to them anymore!!
All of the veterans still remaining should leave. Admit you all lost against us. We are far more numerous. The only one who has all the rights to stay is nonchan1023 because she has far better edits than these jealous bitches, and she gives us all the stuff we need. nonchan1023 you are Goddess and we’ll do whatever you want us to do! You did so much for us. The old grannies can go to hell, they are so useless and boring to death.
Also what’s wrong with people not wanting Yuzu to get instragram? He’s a celebrity and as someone now famous, he should take the responsability to keep his fans updated.
Now that we are a force to be reckoned with, we should think about leading their annoying forum too. Yuzu dedserves better fans than them. They keep saying we don’t love other skaters. So what?! I have all the rights to like Yuzu only. Because he and Kim Yuna are the only one talented. What can we do if the others are crap? I don’t care. We like who we choose to like. Yuzu and Kim are forever King and Queen and no one is gonna dethrone them.
Let’s party together friends! Drinking to the burial of those old hags.
Soon he’s going to belong to all of us and not to them anymore!
Let’s unit together so that they won’t ever come back!
I feel honored to be liked and I thank you for your compliments about my edits and such. However, I do disagree with your post. Yuzuru belongs to no one; he is not an object. This was never a game of who can win Yuzuru. I feel sad that we have to define “veterans” and “new fans”. It’s not about how many more new fans are there over the “veterans”. I don’t think YOU have any right to give people rights about staying or leaving the fandom. I think it was rude to say that all “veterans” are old grannies since there are many people who are fans longer than I that are nice people. I understand your frustration towards some people, especially about how they reacted to new fans during the Olympics. That was one of the reasons why I lost relationships with some users on Tumblr. But that doesn’t mean it’s right to say that I am a Goddess while the “old hags” should die and never come back. I do agree that there is nothing wrong with people liking Yuzuru only and people wanting Yuzuru to get instagram. However, I do disagree about the fact that it is Yuzuru’s responsibility to keep his fans updated. He is not a celebrity; he is just a teenager working hard towards his dreams. What I am trying to say is that I appreciate that you complimented me, but I have to point out that there are some points in your post that were rude towards some people.
Thank you nonchan~ (^-^)
To magicalfangirlworld, sorry this boring old granny is still here and I don’t intend to leave soon. This boring granny will also continue to post edits, scans and translations(when I have time :D) and interact with other fans here. I don’t expect everyone to like the things I post so no apologies if you find them boring or useless (^_^). I admit that since the Sochi Olympics there have been many posts that made me uncomfortable, but I never felt it was right to tell those blogs to get out of tumblr. I do not think there is a need to segregate old and new fans, but for the sake of discussion, I’ll use the terms you used.
Tumblr and the fandom do not belong to you or anyone of us. Yuzuru does not belong to any of his fans, “old” or “new”, period. He is a person with his own free will, not an object to be fought over between fans. Please respect that. He does not have any responsibility towards fans to keep us updated on what he is doing. It is entirely up to him whether he wants to have a presence on social media. It is not that “old fans” do not want him to; if he chooses to, great! But it should be up to him to decide and we as fans should let him be and not give him extra pressure to do anything, especially not through his skater friends. He feels his responsibilities as a representative of Japan, as a representative of Sendai and now as Olympic and World Champion keenly and always strives to live up to the standards he thinks is expected of him. He is grateful to his fans, to people who have supported him and he expresses this in interviews all the time. Is this not enough? Is it not enough for us as fans that he tries his best to give the best performance every time? Can we not give him additional pressure to do something he doesn’t feel comfortable doing?
Of course you are free to like the skaters you like. If you only love one skater or two it is perfectly fine. But please show some respect to other skaters and not diss them. They are also people who have worked very hard to compete at the elite level. Many of them are Yuzuru’s friends and people he respects. Some of them, like Evgeny Plushenko and Daisuke Takahashi are people he really looks up to. Yuzuru never says anything bad about other skaters, you can see from photos and interviews that he is good friends with many of them. Can we all learn to be kinder to others just as he is, even to his greatest rivals?
To end off, you shouldn’t have to define yourself as a fan by hating other fans. I’m sad to see you think you need to.
An old granny (^_^)
