do you have fancontent? do you wanna talk about your experiences in the fandom? do you wanna help me out in writing a research paper so that i don’t fail critical analysis?
AWESOME! CAUSE IM LOOKING FOR STUFF TO PUT IN A RESEARCH PAPER/ESSAY ON FAN CULTURE AND THE LEGO MOVIE FANDOM FOR SCHOOL!!!
i, emmet “sparky” superlego/soundwavespark, need a LOT of lego movie fanart, fanfic, merch, cosplay, panel footage, animatics, memes etc. to put in this paper!!! if you’re interested please send me any of the above (and any other lego movie fancontent you might have !!!) either through here or discord. you can send pictures, links, text documents, etc, whatever format you can!
I am also looking for “TESTIMONIALS” on the lego movie fandom. All you have to do is answer the following questions to the best of your ability.
why do you like the lego movie/ the lego movie fandom? when did you first discover it?
has the lego movie/the lego movie fandom impacted your life in a positive way (ex: you met friends/loved ones through it, it helped you discover something about yourself, it inspires/inspired you in some way)?
do you believe that it has impacted your identity in some way? ie, if asked outside of anonymity/social media, would you identify yourself as a “lego/lego movie fan”?
do you feel, generally, that the lego movie fandom is a place where marginalized identities are accepted? do you, as an individual, feel accepted in the fandom? is it more accepting than other communities/places in your life?
i am also accepting personal stories/anecdotes about the fandom/film!!! for example, if you’ve got a story about a cosplay meetup or the first time you saw the film, then feel free to send it to me! anything goes.
Feel free to answer any or all of these! you do NOT have to answer all of them! PLEASE DM me on here or discord your answers!!
ALSO NOTE THAT I CAN CREDIT YOU ANONYMOUSLY!! AND THAT THIS WILL NOT BE SHOWN PUBLICLY, ONLY ME, SELECT PROOFREADERS, AND MY TEACHER WILL SEE IT. I do NOT intend to slander anyone with this paper. Think of this as a celebration of the fandom!!
The absolute deadline for materials is May 29th BUT i prefer if you submit materials by May 26th! I’d also appreciate it if people reblog this so that the word is spread through the fandom.
This blog may have started as a joke, but I’ve been so pleasantly surprised by how nice you lego fans are! I’m out of touch fandom (and tumblr)-wise, but it’s been quite the experience. The rad fanart, the cosplay, the weird (and suddenly smutty) fanfictions, all the webs of interconnected AUs and OTPs that I can’t even begin to decipher. Thank you all for being so nice and letting me join in the fun!
