What are the ideals of the community that has formed around this fandom? Are they fundamentally different from those in other fandoms, such as anime/manga, video gaming, or general art communities? What is the spirit of a community like this, and what is not? What behaviors should be cultivated, and which ones corrected? What's the proper mechanism for correcting socially maladapted behavior, such as bullying and harassment? What role do we all share here as individuals to set an example of honor in our dealings with others here for all the community to follow? How might we cultivate an ethos that is one that we might one day push out upon the failed world as a model for others as how to proceed in life? What in an artist's approach might be the missing element the world's sickened heart needs most? I'd like to start by encouraging everyone to be nice to one another, and to listen with open hearts. We can make life a little better for people who are kind and want to extend love, and we can make this community a little colder for people whose long-term approach to others is to tear them down with inhuman soullessness, falseness, and distilled cruelty. We can make our village safe from the beasts and we can drive out the corrupt watchmen wherever they may be concealed. And we must, the world has turned hostile. Look out your window, observe the gathering storm clouds.
