And the fight continues…
Mr. Chump Change: your [ very noticeable ] lack of dedication is what makes you far from being a touhou fan, and thus to call yourself a fan of touhou nevertheless is a hasty assumption, not just from the POV of them legit touhou fanboys, but also from the eyes of an outsider like myself as well. you too should have understood this very well.
Halfey: How could you say there are ‘legitimate’ and ‘illegitimate’ fans out there when all that we need is interest? Dedication? You mean I have to beg and steal and borrow or even break the bank just to show how much I’m dedicated? No, I don’t need that. They are interested to play the games then they are a fan. I’m interested in the design and derivative works then I’m also a fan too. It’s just that we show our love in different ways.
(Note: When Mr. Chump Change uses the [...] it literally means he is whispering or mind-talking or even using telepathy. Then Mr. Chump Change started to call me ‘sir’ out of spite.)
Mr. Chump Change: frankly sir, bandwidth limitation is not an issue here. even i who had to coup with the frequent un-stability of my ISP [ not to mention the time when i still haven't had internet installed to my room ] could obtain all those that i desired [ greatest example on this were the numerous eroges i've acquired from time to time ] by through of a well thought download management system. well its kinda like playing them RPG, there’s always a few ways to work around such obstacles as long as you had the dedication to penetrate through them :3
Halfey: I know what you’re trying to say is “work around it” but does that mean you’re implying that I must do things the same way you do so that you could accept my reasoning? My life is already divided into many small portions of which I have to dedicate my self to all of them fairly, and anime is just one of them, which happen to cover one of my many interests. So what you really need to hear from me is a reason right? Well, that won’t going to happen because whatever reason I’d state for that, regardless they’re strong or not, chances are you are not gonna buy them since they’re not in favor of your interest.
(Note: When Mr. Chump Change uses the “:3″ it literally means he is acting cutely no matter how meanie he is, though in this ‘fight’ he actually only act cutely and not being meanie.)
Mr. Chump Change: in regard to the second case of the argument above; the stated so-called ‘double standard’ exist because you aren’t making a solid sense in your stance, which will only lead to those who got irked to view you more as a drone in the bandwagon rather than a critic with a reason, thus their insistence to reject your views.
Halfey: What’s the point of arguing over points that are only valid to myself? For me, what I need in order to love or hate something is a reason, anything regardless they’re strong or weak. As long as I have reasons that’s enough. And why fuss over reasons that appear to be “strong” for me just because they appear weak to you? I don’t hurt anybody, not even myself over what I’ve chose to accept. And I don’t need you to accept my reasons either. It works for me and that’s all there is to it.
(And then another Mr. Chump Change jumped in (let’s call him Mr. Chump Change #2) though his words are mostly just repetation of Mr. Chump Change #1′s words. But I’m polite enough to welcome him since he’s my guess anyway.)
Mr. Chump Change #2: I doubt you’re a Touhou fan, regarding the ‘answer’ that was given by you state that ‘lack of interest’, ‘waste bandwidth’ etc. This is not what a true fan should say after claiming he/she as a fan…
Halfey: Do I need to follow your guide on “becoming a TRUE Touhou fan”? Oh well whatever I’m saying or claiming about myself is only about myself and does not concern you, so you don’t have to tell me “you’re not a true fan” because whatever you’re gonna say is not valid to me, just as in the case where my claim appears to be invalid to you. Again it’s all about myself, I don’t hurt anybody, not even myself over what I’ve chose to accept. And I don’t need you to accept my reasons either. It works for me and that’s all there is to it. Love is about how we appreciate what we have no matter how much we have things we love in our hand, not about how we show them or we’d steal to have everything we love. In short, just because you don’t or can’t see doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
Mr. Chump Change #2: oh dammit.. i gtg
Halfey: Thanks for coming.
There might be another Mr. Chump Change will come soon, even the female ones (a.k.a. Miss Chump Change). Until then I have have to get prepared for more assault.
