i keep being like ‘haha im totes 5 in real life’ but im actually sitting here having an anxiety attack because this was a thing i wanted to do but now im wondering if i shouldnt have even tried and maybe i should have kept my mouth shut and im just
im literally dumb and fuck up everything i try to do hahahahahaha
no please, keep trying, i encourage you to keep telling people what you feel about the movie, because that’s the important stuff. For some of us this movie has a really deep meaning, we found wonderful things thanks to this movie, people, places, things we now love thanks to the movie etc. It is good that you are reminding them why they love this movie in first place, i know what you mean when you think it was “useless” but for some of us, every time someone joins their fandom, even when someone says they like the same thing you liked it feels great, it makes you remember why you liked it and why you joined it and first of all why you love it.
So don’t give up, there are some of us that are still out there, most of us are already working in their own things, or they are watching other shows they like, but that doesn’t mean they have forgotten how much they like the movie. We are just dormant for now? Never loose hope, there’s a lot of potential in this universe that i don’t think people will give up easily okay?
it is not useless, believe me
i am part of a few fairly large fandoms, and some that are also fairly obscure such as no more heroes and gregory horror show
i see all these wonderful fanworks on a daily basis that people do and i just
i dont know
my biggest fandom (as in the one i was most into) up until now was an offshoot of pokemon, a certain set of triplets i adore and their fandom is literally almost dead except for weeaboos who pair their ocs with them
but there was a time when there was a landslide of new art and things every day
and i thought maybe i could
try to rile things back up again and help it thrive again
like a motivational speaker or something just
spark interest in creating things again because i almost sorta semi did it before with another fandom and
i dont know maybe you guys dont need some stupid 5-obsessed hopeful idiot trying to get things to be as lively as it was when the movie came out
Woah hey friend don’t say that, don’t be discouraged! You’re way over thinking it. Your goofy 9 blog has made a lot of people laugh and brought us back some really good memories of the film, you’ve done a good thing and you should be proud of that.
We’re just a fairly small, reserved fandom that has been around for a few years and is from a series that is not getting any new media produced. So at this point in our fandom’s life cycle, and in large part due in part to the nature of our source material, a big chunk of what is keeping the fandom chugging along is fan theory and fan characters. I guess that is part of the reason why it was difficult to find us in the first place, we’re a little, uh, underground.
So if people aren’t getting riled up in the way you want it’s not because you’re not doing something right or because we don’t want new people (WE LOVE NEW PEOPLE!), it’s just that we are no longer the perky bosomed maiden of a fandom we once were. This doesn’t mean we’re a nasty old crone either, though, we’re more like a fine, matured lady. That sometimes writes smutty fanfic about rag doll people.
Realistically we probably won’t regain the thunder of our fandom’s infancy but that doesn’t mean don’t come in. I’m looking forward to seeing content from you, it’s always good to see people doing stuff with the canon cast. The best way to liven up things is to just do what you’re doing - talk about the movie, get to know people and produce content, and to do it as long as you are having fun.
