Enough is Enough

There is some serious madness going on in the True Blood fandom. What I heard tonight really got my dander up and is now causing this rant. Trust me when I say, this has been building up inside of me for a while now.  A certain sector in this fandom has started somewhat of a petition of sorts to report a page on Face book simply because they do not like the title,"Bill Compton is not a hero". I have a big problem with this as it violates the right to Freedom of Speech granted by the U.S. Constitution.  I personally do not like when my or any other red-blooded person's civil liberties are put into question. No law is being broken nor is anyone being hurt in the process. There is also another reason I have a problem with this, are you ready for it, BILL COMPTON IS A FICTIONAL CHARACTER!! It it not as if a real person is being talked about or slandered.What the hell does it matter if anyone puts down a character, at the end of the day, it really means jack shit

We are having natural disasters going on in the world, terrorist's attacks and soldiers fighting for their country and their rights and people are complaining about a fictional character. NEWS FLASH, DON'T GO ON THE SITE THEN AND GET OVER IT. There are more important things to worry about in life than the well-being and feelings of a fictional character. Another reason is that some of the same people who are moaning and complaining about this site called people out BY NAME on another site and the last time I checked that was slander. You can't slander a fictional character but you can a REAL human being and I have seen it done.  

According to them, Team Eric bashes not only the character but the actor who portrays him, which is so far from the truth, it's not even funny.  I am sure the actor's don't give a rat's ass behind if their character is not universally liked by all of the fandom. In fact, I bet you they quite enjoy it. I like Moyer's acting chops, he sure can make me dislike his character, but heaven forbid if that is allowed. I find it very hypocritical that the same group of people that are doing the complaining are the same ones that have said "that Sookie is a real bitch" for how she treats Bill. Oh that is Sookie bashing, better look out, someone might report you or your site. I have also heard some of the same people talk about Anna Paquin and the gap in her teeth.  I think a certain fandom needs to check themselves before they wreck themselves.  


  1. Hot damn, I couldn't have worded it better if I tried. The whole thing is getting out of hand, turning a great show into some sort of free for hatefest..

  2. I hated Bill Compton as a character before Steven ever played the character as an actor. The fact that Steven as an actor was able to make me despise the Bill character even more then I had original shows the level aptitude and talent he has an actor. Seeing people project their anger toward fictional characters and situations onto the actors who portray them and the writers who create them is silly and displays a lack of maturity as well as a disconnection from reality on their parts.

  3. Hi and congrats for the post. I, for one, don't like Bill at all but I appreciate enormously Stephen Moyer for his acting skills and his portayal of Bill. I know for sure this feeling is shared by most TeamEric.
    BLs often like to play victims, talking about hate but never recognizing they contribute enormously to make this fandom a bloody hell.

  4. Thank you all, I just had to vent a little. It is true that they won't admit to the things they do wrong. I won't rehash it as it is all in my post but it really is a point of the pot calling the kettle black. Kittrose, I love your art, it is really beautiful!
