All right.  I am feeling snarky at the moment.  Here are…

THE FIVE STAGES OF COMIC FAN “GRIEF”

"Comic book fans scare me!"

"Comic book fans scare me."

  1. DENIAL: “Oh, come on!  They can’t be doing that!  What are they thinking?  That could never, ever happen!
  2. BITCHING ON THE INTERNET: (typing) “This is the WORST idea ever!  They can’t do this!  That writer has NO idea what he is doing.  WTF!  OMG!  They should ALL be FIRED!!!!!!!!
  3. BITCHING AT THE COMIC SHOP: “Can you believe they’re doing this?  There is no way that could every work.  Am I wrong here?  Who agrees with me?  You don’t?  Then you are a moron!”
  4. MORE BITCHING ON THE INTERNET: (more typing) I was at the comic shop today and some mouth breather was telling me I’m wrong!  Can you BELIEVE that?  It is so obviously the worst idea ever and everyone responsible needs to be shot EXECUTION STYLE!”
  5. ACCEPTANCE: (more typing) “So I bought the first issue and you know what…it wasn’t that bad!  This guy is the best writer EVER!  I am so on board with this.  Best issue ever!”

    This made me giggle. And cringe a little because I was not always the open minded, cheery person I am today… oh, no, there was a time when this fit me all too well, but with the added “That’s it, they don’t know what they’re doing. I’m not spending my money on this crap anymore! They don’t care what their fans want!”

    And unfortunately, I think you could rename this The Five Stages of FANDOM Grief, or grief giving. I’ve seen way too much bitching in way too many fandoms so that when a truly bad idea (like BTVS withOUT Joss) comes along, the complaining is just more kindling for the bitchtastic fire.
