NAC: I think one of the major problems is the shipping wars. No one seems to accept people's ships. Like I'm a Rumbeller and while I don't understand the appeal of CS, I'm fine with it as long as people don't try to shove it down my throat. But it seems like some fans aren't content unless everyone ships the same thing they do

I do agree. I can understand debating ships with people, and pointing out flaws but I’ve seen way too much “your ship is stupid and you are stupid for shipping it” recently, and that’s not okay. 

And lets be fair. Just about every canon ship in this show has some flaws. Save for Snowing.

True. The only flaw they have is that the writers have been giving them kind of lame storylines and lines recently, but overall I think they might have the only healthy relationship on this show. There are probably minor ships that don’t have problems either BUT WE’LL NEVER KNOW NOW WILL WE?

Shh, don’t say that so loudly. Someone might hear you and then they’ll know my secret. I’m not Rumpelstiltskin, I promise.

NAC: I understand some people wanting to leave the fandom. There is a lot of fighting and hate. But at the same time, I would encourage people not to let this get them down. Don't let the haters drive you away

We need more blogs like oncersbepositive in our fandom. I just really want to see more positive blogs encouraging people to interact and continue being a fan of whatever they like. 

This is true. There are so many wonderful, talented people in this fandom and I have made great friends. However, I have seen a lot of hate and bashing as well. Hell, I’ve gotten nasty anons too. But the thing is that if we let the haters win, they’ll continue to ruin things for us. You can’t let them win. I refuse to.

Taking a break from a fandom is a great idea though. If you need a small break, take it and then come back.

I agree. Most of the people I talk to on this blog don’t even ship the same things I do or like the same characters I do but it doesn’t mean I’m going to start responding to all of their replies with “your favourite character sucks and so do you!” 

I also agree that sometimes taking a break from a fandom is a good idea. There’s no need to continue interacting with toxic people and if you step away from the fandom for a little while, you’re almost guaranteed to have a better fandom experience when you return.

NAC: Just a thank you for the tagging really. It's meant I can enjoy your blog so much more with not seeing certain tags and images, not everyone does it so I'm more appreciative to those that do :)

You’re welcome, dearie! I’m happy that this “tagging system” works well for you. I’m honestly glad that there are “anti” tags now because it makes it so much easier to tag my posts. When I started the blog, I’d just use the character’s name in every confession regardless of whether it was positive or negative and now I can continue to do that when the “anti-whatever” tag is included. Obviously it still bothers some people, but I don’t live to please.
