casual shoutout to everyone in the gt fandom who’s mentally ill
i’ve been in the fandom for about five years, active for about one. i’ve seen a lot of people come and go, some in worse shape than others. one thing i’ve noticed is that a lot of us tend to put on a front, since gt is our happy place we feel like we have to be happy all the time. and that does wind up hurting when depression hits or mental illnesses flares up or you’re just not feeling your best.
theres nothing wrong with that. theres nothing wrong with not being chipper all the time, when you joined the fandom you didn’t sign a paper saying that you always had to be the bouncy tiny or the cheerful giant.
you just gotta be you.
and if you’re depressed? or have an eating disorder? or an anxiety disorder? have ptsd? have something else? have no mental illnesses but still have your bad days? thats okay. you’re okay here.
gt is a more intense fandom, because for a lot of us its so much more than fandom, its practically a way of living. and since its such a huge thing in all of our lives, its reasonable to have ups and downs. and honestly i find so many of you brave.
being a mentally ill tiny is hard, being a mentally ill giant is hard, being anything in between is hard. but that doesn’t stop this fandom. and when i see any of you pull through a tough time, come out alive, or even take time to take care of yourself, i get so proud.
i’m rambling at this point, but i just really wanted to say that even though this fandom is mostly geared towards being positive, its perfectly okay to have your bad times and be open about it.
going through mental illness doesn’t make you weak. it makes you brave. in the end, it’ll make you strong.
look. i’m all for a harmless rickroll. you do you but. that post saying that rick astley died this year which links to “never gonna give you up” is in shitty taste, you should be ashamed of yourself, fuck you
idk about you, but the Lazy Town fandom is like the sweetest fandom ever?? Everybody is openly shipping Sportarobbie , sharing headcanons , and most of all : the fanart. We’re posting little doodles made in margins, crappy frist-time drawings , overall cute little things and it’s just SO GOOD?
Lazy Town is bring back beauty in 2016 I swear
