Anonymous asked : (Same anon as before) Maybe, but even working and living with your art is pretty hard, even if I wish that for Geo and many other young artists! I just don't get the ''acting like fans'' part. I find this is a bit exaggerate for a young blogger - in fact, I don't even like people considering Hiddleston as perfect, all that kind of stuff. We should be friends, not pretend to be an army of fans.
I see your point- a lot of artists don’t make as much money as they would like. Geo could always get a side job, which is becoming extremely common nowadays. As for the fans part- being a young blogger shouldn’t really affect this. I’ve always thought that being a fan is more ‘I like your work and your behavior’; but if they’re a total dick, you’re just a fan of their work. Big difference.
I, too, don’t like considering Hiddleston perfect. He’s a genuine guy, that’s for sure. But in no way perfect. People only see him as this because he is very polite, which is harder to come by nowadays in people.
As for the army- if a group of fans want to call themselves an army, that’s ok. I do think we should act more as friends and communicate more than just “HIDDLESTON ARMY,!!1!!”. Like Whovians, Bronies, etc. they have chosen to call themselves the “Hiddleston Army” or “Hiddlestoners”. It’s a group name and I do feel that they have less communication amongst themselves compared to the other fandoms, and I do wish this would change.
Anonymous asked : As much as I find Geo's drawings amusing, I don't understand all this thing about being an ''army''. Honestly, the drawings she does aren't so bad, but that doesn't mean she's going to be a famous artist later, especially in this though world... Being Tumblr famous doesn't mean anything in real life, where hard work and education matters.
Yes, it’s true that being Tumblr famous doesn’t mean anything in real life. However, I think that it does give most people motivation to follow their dream. You know, knowing that thousands of people appreciate your work. And it’s true- she might not be a famous artist later. There are so many artists out there, doing what they love, and they’re not famous. I’ve always thought, it’s not the fame that matters- just do what you love. She could do drawings for children’s books, make animation shorts, commercials.. the list is endless. Does that mean she’ll become famous? No. Does that mean she’ll be happy with her job? Yes. I think that’s really all that matters.
(also, I only reblogged the Army post because I hadn’t posted anything in a while- I’m not one for giving a group of fans a name, usually.)
