I'm really curious. How did you got the passion for Soul Eater? How did it start?
Story time with khaleesi!! Because I never really talk about this so here goes.
I actually remember it very clearly which means it’s a very important memory to me (surprising to no one). It was March of 2014, and I was going through watching various anime shows that were popular on Netflix and all that good stuff. I don’t remember how I came up to Soul Eater, but somehow I found myself watching it late one night and stayed up until 3am binge watching the show before I finally had to call it a night. Then I spent the next night finishing it because I had to. I also remember googling to find out if Maka died because of that 2nd opening, and my little heart couldn’t take it if she died.
But, I actually fell in love in that very first episode of Soul Eater because there was just something about Soul and Maka that I found endearing. Their relationship was really wonderful, especially with the whole ‘cool guys don’t cheat on their partners’ but, and from then on, I was sold. Everything about the show was really wonderful and great, and I just fell in love hardcore.
Then it ended, and I needed more!! So I found the SE fandom here on tumblr which was coincidentally around the time that SoMa week was going on back so I read all these great things. And then I kinda just got swarmed with SoMa stuff that it fed into me loving this otp and wanting to get every last bit of them.
My passion for SE and SoMa, though, didn’t come full force until I picked up writing again and started posting my own stuff for the OTP. And now I’m just in this endless vortex of SoMa trash where I cry about them more than a 24 yr old probably should.
I also wanna note that I wouldn’t have started writing again if it wasn’t, not only for the wonderful fanfics I read at that time, but also me finishing Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and the finale for HIMYM which made me so angry I felt the need to let my frustration out through fanfic so yea.
