Some days I go on tumblr, look at fandom interactions, and just think, “WOW! You guys are all fantastic!”
But really! I see artists producing beautiful artwork. The quick sketches, the in-progress updates, the polished pieces, everything. Artists learning techniques. Artists who are confident in their style. It’s all so wonderful to see the creativity burgeoning out of the artwork. The silly pieces, the sweet pieces, the fanart, the original. I love seeing artists on my dash.
And then there’s the fanfictions! People working on enormous epics that are 200k. People who plug out an impacting paragraph long flash. Stories of every human emotion, from life’s worst struggles to the greatest joys and loves. People who breathe life into characters and make them feel real. People who paint settings so real I forget where I am sitting. People who are just beginning to write and explore their style. People who plug out a new story every week. I love seeing everyone exploring this creativity.
Let’s not forget edits and GIFs! Those are so much work! The artistic understanding of colors. Bringing out hues, adding a filter, pulling greater depth to the visual than you ever seen on screen in the original movie. Adding inspiring quotes from songs. Overlaying the visuals with important text. You bring insight to why we love these stories, put together sets of moving images related off a theme. It’s wonderful creativity and it’s so beautiful to see.
And I see people getting so excited and passionate over what they love. People excitedly reblogging fandom content they love. People raging for paragraphs in the tags, screaming at the top of their lungs about how much they adore a certain character. People speculating about AUs. Every single blogger is special, provides something unique, whether it’s enthusiasm or humor or art or story or voice acting or music arrangement or knowledge of fandom lore. You bring so much light to the fandom experience.
I love the creativity this environment has.
I love the people in this environment.
I’m looking at all you guys. I’m so glad we’ve met. I’m so glad we can come together and celebrate the things we love.
so after defending her last night, claiming he thought neeley was laughing at her education and being condescending…. jason decides to go tell krysie and shelby out of no where that danielle is not the “smartest crayon in the box” and will be “owned” by whoever she decides to showmance with and now he’s calling her annoying for no reason whatsoever when she’s probably the only person willing to be his real friend in the house

So, my very, very first OC I ever made (if you could even call him an OC) was the second WoW character I ever created.
He is a blowhard dwarf hunter, and his name is Redheadbeard.
Sometime during Cataclysm when I was going through high school gender heck, I bought a race change and turned him into a female night elf, because at the time, I really needed to play a female character to express myself at the time, and I didn’t want to reroll. Later, I changed that character to a goblin for some reason? I think because my friends were playing Horde. Basically, Redheadbeard is gone.
Now that hunters have gone through some major class changes, I am interested in playing one again, for the first time in years.
I recreated Redheadbeard.
I’m really excited. He was never very fleshed out, and now 22-year-old me is going to give heart to a character that 12-year-old me created.
