Fan community nickname?

Post by Woody Alien » Wed Feb 22, 2012 10:14 am

Okay, this is not a post to be taken seriously, it's just a thing that came in my mind the other day, and I wanted to know if anyone else has thought about it.

You see, every major fan community has a nickname that identifies its members: for example, the most famous of all are "Trekkies" for Star Trek fans, then there are "Whovians" for Doctor Who, "Bronies" for My Little Pony, "Haruhiists" for Haruhi Suzumiya etc. etc. If Katawa Shoujo can gain a strong fan community, what would its name be?
Some examples:
  • Yamaku Alumni
    Broken Hearts (for both Hisao's disability and "the feels")
    Cripple Masters
    Katawackos
    the KS-philes (...)
    Rainbow Wizards
OK I ran out of ideas (maybe it's for the better :lol: ). What do you think?
Katawa Shoujo is a game that, by all accounts, shouldn't exist, but it does and we're happier because of it!

I am a guy.
I sometimes talk like Rin Tezuka.
I am in love with Hanako Ikezawa.

"Katawans" (pronounced like "padawans"?)
Would you come with me if I ran off to be a pirate?

Katawans sounds pretty good. But on the other hand having a community nickname makes me think of bronies, and i don't want to be a brony.

Are bronies that notorious? I remember /b/ saying that KS fans aren't half as bad as bronies.

Bronies are just plain annoying and just...creepy. KS fans are slowly pissing me off but they're not as bad as Bronies.

I am friends with a few bronies and they are perfectly fine people. Obviously this won't apply to all of them, but I still don't think they deserve all the hate that they get. That being said the brony spam on /b/ was incredibly annoying and those that constantly defend the show no matter what really piss me off.

I can sympathize with this sentiment. lol But I don't think we'll transform into bronies by virtue of being part of another community with a nickname... At least I hope not. :P

I'm a Brony deep inside. Those adorable little things are just so awesome. Yay!

Anyway, having our distant roots on /b/, I guess want it or not, we're gonna have the most insulting of them all.
Yup.

Say no more.

Anyway, I propose a Rin's BroFoot as a greeting (Bronies have their BroHoof).

Don't worry about embarrassment dude, I'm sure we're all crushing disappointments to our families already.
