Inspired by The Mandalorian, and Pablo Hidalgo. What is exactly wrong about being attached to a work of fiction, and being invested in it? SWT or Star Wars Theory is probably one of the more enthusiastic people when it comes to the fandom of Star Wars. Yet, someone working for the Lucasfilm Story Group acts as if it's something to be ashamed of. Ignoring the irony of that considering the fact they practically advertise Eric Butts.
I notice this a lot. People are quick to dismiss fiction, and the impact it can have on someone. Whilst ironically being attached to another piece of fiction themselves. It can lead to a lot of drama, and arguments. People say that it's childish, or that you should just "go outside." Almost as if they themselves don't know what it's like to love a story. Before turning around, and doing the same exact thing. Hypocrisy galore.
I imagine that it's some form of gaslighting, and an excuse to hide an entirely different reason why they take offense to somebody caring about a work of fiction.
In this case I imagine it was because Pablo Hidalgo was taking notes from jelly town, and was ass blasted that people liked The Mandalorian more than the "sequels."
What do you guys think?
