The Fandom Life...


There are so many iterations of that line I can choose from, because I am one of the many, who've found themselves stuck in the cycle of "I've finished this season, what else is there?". From Labyrinth to The 100 I have witnessed the wars and the parties. I've lived the heartaches and the joy. I've been that character and their friend, only to come back to my ordinary life, once the story has come to an end.

So, you say I'm crazy, the better word is passionate. Obsession? No, a lifestyle. You don't have to stan or find the minute detail, all you really need is to like and appreciate the works of art that create such fandoms, and soon you'll find yourself in.

My friends, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the fandom life, the life that gripped you tight and raised you from perdition. The life that has eliminated the impossible, proving that whatever remains, however improbable, is the truth. The life that grabbed your hand and whispered "Run" to you.

One of my favourite characters in the Harry Potter series is Luna Lovegood. Why? She's quirky, she's smart and she helps Harry when Ron and Hermione can't. She's the epitome of the strange girl, and yet her heart is pure gold. She's one of the reason's I love the books and the movies. It's because she's "weird" that inspired me while I was growing up.

People misjudged her, and she shrugged them off. She knew what was real, even if everyone thought she was talking about made-up things. I'm glad she's a Ravenclaw, and she was a friend to Harry because goodness knows what she would have done if she worked for You-Know-Who. I'm absolutely sure she would have wrought major destruction, and wouldn't care one bit for it. In fact, I think she'd have given Bellatrix Lestrange a run for her money.

Anyway, I love this rendition of Luna. It makes her look so whimsical, and yet powerful. There's something in this picture that makes me want to go to her for advice about how to cast magic spells or the history of the weird and wonderful.

Of course, MoogleSorbet did an amazing job on this piece, and I think I'm a fan of his now, having looked at some of their other works. I think they're on par with SakimiChan, whose work has moved towards the adult side of illustration, animation and art.

Nevertheless, I highly recommend you check out their pieces, they're amazing!

So Get This...

After all this time, there's always something new I discover rewatching a series or film, or reading the story again. Sometimes, it's actually something new, and I'm pretty excited about it. So, get ready for some tears and screaming, because it can mean something very good or something very bad, in which case, get the ice cream ready!
