|Name:||FF7 Original Game Canon fandom|
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else:
It gets me frustrated
-Avril Lavigne, "Complicated"
Miss the Final Fantasy VII fandom before Advent Children reared its extremely pretty but highly illogical head? Left disappointed by Dirge of Cerberus, at all, period? Welcome to Uncomplicated, for the FF7 fans who just can't stand the
Need your pure FF7 fix over at LJ? Check out ff7_oldschool!
So, uh...you're those old school purists, right?
Heh. I got into the fandom...April of 2005? I would have been thirteen. OMG I AM TEH OLDE!!!!!
What's the Compilation?
I'll grant a little leeway for personal definitions, but I'm counting all of the post-1997 FF7 spinoffs that added new material, no matter how innocuous or ridiculous that particular installment was (which is kind of a blow to myself, because I did enjoy Before Crisis...heh). That makes Advent Children, Before Crisis, Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus, Last Order, Case of Tifa, Case of Denzel, Case of Barret, The Maiden Who Travels The Planet, and...I think that's it, actually o.0
Is this a rant comm?
Nope!...well, kind of. Rants about the Compilation's retcons, retcons of retcons, unretcons, reretcons, and tripleretcons are fine. However, rants about the fans that did enjoy the Compilation are off limits; people who can live with retcons are still people, after all! It's all fandom anyway, so let's just enjoy it however we can, eh?
So...do you guys JUST sit around and bitch?
Oh no! Fanworks revolving around the original game canon are fine...and that's awfully broad, considering all the room for fanmade sequels and prequels that you have without the Compilation! n.n;;
So...y'all are the anal retentive types who take the original game OMG SRZLY, right?
Well, not really -.- But fandom is supposed to be fun, so why spend your hobby time making sure you're familiar with the latest pointless cash-in on what was originally a pretty cool story?
Oh...well, that doesn't sound so bad. Can I join?
Go ahead! Membership is open.
Ha, suckers! Now I can troll you!
And this, my friends, is why I have a banstick. Feel free to troll away, but know I reserve the right to ban you after the first post I find trollish(if you're not obviously trying to start a fight, I'm not going to do anything, though. So all the harmless members...just chillax, okay? ^_^). So know you've only got one shot at getting under my skin, unless you have a ton of sock puppet accounts.
