Help K-Pop Group BTS Get Invited to the 2017 Billboard Music Awards
BTS is one of the hottest names in K-Pop. They are the global phenomenon thats shaking up K-Pop more than any ever thought they would. They are a South Korean boy pop group, consisting of 7 members, debuting in 2013 from a small company, BigHit Entertainment, that was very unknown, they have made a huge name for themselves and their company. BTS isn't just any typical K-Pop group, they're extremely special and unique, unlike and other group out there. They have some of the hardest choreographies in all of K-Pop and they are self-producing aritsts, creating almost all of their beats by themselves, writing lyrics and raps, also by themselves. That is not very common in Korean Pop culture, most groups just have producers create all of their music. Always going out of the norm, BTS write meaningful songs that are relatable for many people, no matter what age you are. BTS have touched upon a great amount of their struggles, including major topics such as depression and sucidal thoughts, which are very taboo in Korea. In late 2016, BTS realeased their second full-length studio album, WINGS. This album was a huge success, breaking so many records in the K-Pop scene. Some of the records being Billboard records. Wings is the highest charting kpop album on Billboard 200 charting at #26 up 35 places from the previous record for their other album, the Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever. BTS is also the only Korean act to have charted on the billboard 200 3 times. BTS has a lot more accomplishments, that's just the beginning of how much they've achieved in such a short time. Many Americans, or just western people in general, look down on K-Pop for reasons unknown. Most assume that its prejudice towards Asians, being that there is are very strong stereotypes towards them. A goal of A.R.M.Y, BTS's fandom, is to try to give western people more exposure to Asian culture and pop culture, in efforts to try and end some prejudices towards Asians. We would like them to see that just because it's in a language you don't know or it's just plain different, doesn't make it bad or weird. What A.R.M.Y is asking for is that BTS is given a chance to be exposed to western people and shown as a performance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Billboard writes countless praise articles about BTS constantly, and they were given the title "Best K-Pop Album of 2016," up against a large number of other big names in K-Pop. We think it would be a huge opportunity, not only for BTS, but also for Billboard. BTS have one of the biggest fanbases in the world and its grower faster and faster every single day. We really hope to see these boys perform at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

Make Leia an official Disney princess
After the tragic loss of Carrie Fisher, we feel that it is only fitting for Disney to do away with the rule that an official Disney princess must be animated and make Leia a full-fledged princess. This would be a wonderful way to remember Carrie and a welcoming to one of Disney's new properties that is beloved by millions. What we are asking is that the Walt Disney Corporation hold a full ceremony inducting Leia as the newest Disney princess as well as a special service in memory of Carrie Fisher. Art credit J.L.

Bring the Old Republic era of Star Wars to Netflix
It's no surprise to anyone that the Star Wars franchise has experienced a massive resurgence lately, with The Force Awakens released last year and this year with the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, it's about time that the stories from over 3,000 years before the Battle of Yavin be told to both new and old fans of the franchise. The Knights of the Republic series of games as well as the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic serve as the main vehicles to tell stories of characters such as Darth Revan, Darth Malak, Bastila Shan, Darth Traya, Meetra Surik, Darth Malgus, Satele Shan, and the list goes on. The popularity of this era in Star Wars history is felt throughout the fanbase, and I feel it would do a massive disservice to us if these stories weren't told. Why Netflix was chosen was because of the wealth of great content they have produced over the years, such as Narcos, House of Cards, and especially everything that Marvel has done and is still currently working on. Not only that, but Netflix can serve as a platform to tell these stories as they were meant to be portrayed: dark, foreboding, and a touch on the mature side. This can also give us fans our healthy dose of Star Wars while we're waiting on the new movies or the new season of Star Wars Rebels. The Old Republic era is a pivotal point in the Star Wars timeline because that's where everything changed, from the Jedi Civil War and the fall of Revan, the First Jedi Purge, and an omnipresent darkness that not only watched the chaos from afar but also kick-started the downfall. Our fanbase would love to see this on Netflix, and I feel that you would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would enjoy watching them.

Move Girl Meets World To Freeform (ABC Family)
Girl meets world is a spin off of the very popular and loved show boy meets world. However unlike boy meets world which was aired on ABC, girl meets world is aired on disney channel. Disney has restrictions on its network that ABC *now known as freeform* does not have. For example, no disney show to my knowledge has gone beyond four seasons. Boy meets world went 7 seasons. If we want girl meets world to run as long as it deserves, we need to get the show moved to freeform before the show inevitably gets canceled after its 4th season. Also, because disney is more catered to kids, girl meets world isn't allowed to explore the many more mature subjects that boy meets world was allowed to explore. Simply put, girl meets world will never reach its fullest potential while its on disney. Which is why I'm starting this petition to move it to freeform. If you agree, sign today!
Petition to Hallmark Cards, Inc., Feeln
Give the Rainbow Brite reboot a second season #RainbowBriteSeason2
The Rainbow Brite reboot has been broadcasted on November 6, 2014, airing on Hallmark's streaming service Feeln, has concluded it's 1st (and mostly only season) on November 20, 2014. leaving the reboot of the series abandoned. if you look at the original Rainbow Brite series from 1983, the first incarnation of the series concluded with 13 episodes in less than three years. the current incarnation of the series was done by screenwriter Rachel Vine, with the animation done by Raymond Arrizon. the Feeln original series features the voices of Emily Osment (Rainbow Brite herself), Marcus Toji (Brian), Molly Ringwald (Dark Princess), Cam Clarke (Murky Dismal and Red Butler), Mark Hanson (Starlite), Evan Cooper (Buddy Blue), Marina Flores (Patty O'Green and Mr. "Twink" Glitters), Alexandra Krosney (Stormy and Canary Yellow) and Todd Bosley (Lurky). I had clarified that the reason of the Reboot only having 3 episodes was due to attempted reboots of 1980's cartoons were overshadowed by the success of different Transformers TV Shows and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. another example is the 2011 ThunderCats reboot was canceled due to low toy sales. We must demand Feeln and it's parent company Hallmark to extend the Rainbow Brite reboot for a second season. and my proposal for that specific revival to have at least "26" episodes If the Petition reaches 100 signatures or more. Please support this petition to have the Rainbow Brite reboot come back with a second season or more. Follow the Rainbow Brite account on several social media sites. https://www.facebook.com/Rainbowbrite/ https://www.twitter.com/briteisback also follow Feeln as well. https://www.facebook.com/feeln/ https://www.twitter.com/feeln/ The deadline is November 6, 2017, around the Rainbow Brite Reboot's third anniversary. So we better hurry if we want to have Hallmark and Feeln give the series a second season.
Petition to Netflix, Reed Hastings and Netflix
Bring The Secret Circle Season 2 to Netflix
The Secret Circle was unfortunately cancelled by TheCW Network due to their ratings and the inability to fuel the production costs of the show. Many fans out there would like to see this show continue on with it's 2nd season despite having been cancelled over 3 years ago. While this seems like a long shot, it's certainly NOT impossible. The show, The X-Files ended over 10 years ago and is now seeing a revival with all original cast. Let us be hopeful for something incredible. I have a belief that Netflix will be able to carry this show under its wing and be able to capture the hearts of fans who have avidly followed Charmed, The Witches of East End and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They have successfully been able to remaster Daredevil in a way that was cinematically stunning and appropriate. If anyone can bring out this show's true potential, Netflix certainly can. The first season was dramatically left with such an incredible cliffhanger - something that Netflix can surely successfully play with. I am in hopes that this will raise awareness and gain some sort of backing as I am sick and tired of seeing shows that have immense legitimacy be cancelled before their potentials are even seen. If you watch The Secret Circle on Netflix, you will see that every episode donnes a 5-star rating. I hope that this doesn't get ignored! A twitition has been started asking for netflix to take on The Secret Circle's 2nd season here: Bring Season 2 of TSC to Netflix Twitition The petition to renew the show for a second season can be found here: Do not cancel TSC

Save the Funko My Little Pony Vinyl Collectible Line!
Please sign this petition if you would like for Funko to release the Queen Chrysalis and Nightmare Moon Vinyl figures, and continue making more MLP characters in the future. I am writing this petition on behalf of the My Little Pony Vinyl Collectors like myself. The goal is to save the My Little Pony Vinyl Collectible line. Hot Topic has decided to no longer carry the Funko ponies, and Funko has decided to stop producing them. Unfortunately we may no longer see anymore Funko ponies unless we do something about it. Think about the others you would like to be released in the future like, Starlight Glimmer, King Sombra, Zecora, Sunset Shimmer, Diamond Tiara, Soarin, Tirek, Gilda, Princess Ember, and many more! The goal currently is to hit 2,000 signatures, to show that we want these back!
