totally rude, but it's just something I've been curious about that no one has ever answered.
I would seriously like to know why you guys enjoy fads so much. It's not me beingHypnotoad said:"but I may rejoin the fad if the fad becomes a fad again"tentacleTherapist said:Olol.
This weekend saying bye to homestuck theme, for now, but I may rejoin the fad if the fad becomes a fad again as its being destroyed by that stupid pony show.
So, what you're saying is--you're going to say you like something because other people are also saying that they like it, and you guys all view this as some measurement of popularity? I have no idea why any sort of fad ever takes hold, beyond the fact that people enjoy mindlessly following other people that they deem to be cooler than they are, and believing that by associating their own preferences with their idol's preferences, that they may get some of the coolness that flakes off of the other person.
"as its being destroyed by that stupid pony show."
Actually, from what I take of it, the Homestuck fad is being destroyed by those people who are joining the fad simply because it's a fad, as you stated you did, or to simply achieve the honk rank. The fact that a group of people likes something else should not make it impossible for you to have something that you like. There is no way that it could possibly infringe on it except perhaps if you don't actually like what you're saying you're liking, and only using it to gauge popularity.
btw this goes for everyone~
