I dunno if there's a stamp for this saying but I doubt it.

Anyway, if you're unfamiliar with this saying here's the summary.
Movies, video games, comics, books, whatever are all part of a business, at least in terms of the big name stuff (I'm not talking about indie created things here). And as such, very often money-making schemes are implemented to try and see what consumers are will to buy and pay for.

In a more basic way of putting it. If a video game comes out that has the bare minimum of said type of video game should have, or is a very poor game just in general, or it's lacking a large amount of features that were advertised or perhaps has a bunch of unnecessary features; it doesn't matter HOW much people complain or protest or leave messages to the developers on their websites or youtube or facebook. The fact of the matter is that if the game makes MONEY and people BUY it, then that is all the publishers care about (I am talking specifically about the businesses in charge here, not the creatives behind the actual making of the game). Companies are smart. They are willing to take some bad press or negative feedback as long as, at the end of the day, a profit is made.

So, the responsibility lies with the us as the CONSUMER to let companies know what we are and are not willing to accept in our media. And the only way we truly are able to send out message is to refuse to pay money for something we are unhappy with. You can complain about the new crappy reboot movie until you're blue in the face. If you go out and pay money to see it in any fashion, you are contributing to more of the same being made in the future.

Using money as the consumer's 'voice' DOES work. More than likely the only reason the Xbox One was adjusted and features tweaked after it was first announced was because Microsoft noted the lack of pre-orders and realised things needed to change. The same goes for Nintendo and the lack of sales for the Nintendo Wii U. The lack of 3rd party support on the wii obviously didn't matter to them because they went ahead and made the wii u. But now that sales are WAY down on the wii u they are actually announcing that they feel they have failed to deliver a product up to people's expectation.

Basically the lesson is, if you're unhappy with a movie or game or comic DO NOT BUY IT. It's as simple as that. You are NOT helping your favourite franchises by buying mediocre releases. Even if you are a complete Die Hard fan, you should not let your love and devotion contribute to the deterioration of your favourite brands/stories/characters/games/movies/comics/whatever it is.

....that wasn't a SMALL summary at all 8D;;

PLEASE, NO FLAMES. IT'S OKAY TO SHARE AN OPINION IN A CIVIL WAY, BUT FLAMING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.



Granted, there are a lot of Puzzleshippers out there who are hardcore Anzu-bashers. But there's also a lot of us who aren't. I'm a Pro!Anzu Puzzleshipper and proud of it, but I'm sick and tired of seeing Anzu/Téa bashing everywhere. I don't cheer for it or wish Anzu dead, even if Peach and Revolutionshipping AREN'T my cup of tea at all. (No pun intended)

There are many of us out there who write Anzu in-character, who think she's okay, involve her in pairings, heck, I know I personally like to write fics where she's the one who gets Yami and Yuugi together in the first place!

Anzu isn't some whiny obsessive and slutty girl who would kill to get her hands on Yami, like she's often written to be in fanfictions. At which part of the anime and/or manga was she seen caking makeup all over her face, sending Yuugi death threats, hatching stupid plans to get Yami and someone PLEASE tell me in which part of canon did it reveal that she's an ACTUAL cheerleader, as in with pom-poms and stuff? That's right, you can't name any of those parts of canon. Because NONE OF IT HAPPENED. (And the only way she can be seen as a cheerleader is that she cheers for Yami and Jounouchi during their duels, and you know what? So does Honda, and I don't see HIM in makeup and a miniskirt and being hit by a bus in the fandom.) Yes, she sometimes obsesses, but she's mature about it, and quiet about it. She's Yuugi's best friend, NOT his enemy. She's also not stupid, nor a slut, and she's the class representative in her class at school, so she's responsible.

The funny part? I'm not an Anzu fangirl. I'm just annoyed with this whole bashing business. Seriously, try writing characters in-character for once. Or here's an interesting one to all Anzu-bashing Puzzleshippers - if you usually bash Anzu, try writing a fanfic in which she's not bashed, even if it's only short. Maybe have her accept Yuugi and Yami's relationship, defend it, or even try to get them together. That applies to fans of other pairings who bash her too, only obviously change around the characters shipped to suit your needs. There's nothing wrong with shipping Yuugi and Yami while still being nice to Anzu. It won't kill you, it will only make you seem like a nicer, more mature person.

Stereotyping is always an issue, however. I'm sick and tired of being pegged as a hater all because I like Puzzleshipping. Is it honestly that odd to like both? I don't think so. A few bashers speak out for the whole of our side of the fandom and give us a terrible reputation, and that's not fair. Hell, it's not even just Puzzleshippers pegged like this; I was speaking to a Prideshipper today who complained about their part of the fandom being stereotyped the same way!

So, please. Thing logically. Not every single one of us wishes Anzu dead, nor are we rabid shippers who pounce on everything that doesn't fit what every other Puzzleshipper seems to think. We're all different, and we all seem to be clustered together and judged negatively by the other shippers. Some will hate, some won't, but find out where we stand before you judge us badly for it. PLEASE.

Sure kids can be loud and teens can be dramatic, but so can everyone else.

Feel free to agree or disagree.
