See? I told you this blog wasn’t dead! 😀
The truth is I’m taking a break (possibly a permanent one) from my other blog, Una di Noi Winx. I’ve been running it for almost nine years now, but I’m tired of the Winx Club fandom. I don’t feel like I belong there anymore.
The fandom feels like a record stuck on repeat — the same opinions, same types of fanart, same screenshots, same everything year after year. I hope something happens in the eighth season that shakes things up, starts some new discussions, and gives new perspectives on old topics.
I doubt it, though. This fandom tends to downplay or reject new ideas, characters, and whatnot. They worship all the old stuff and never re-evaluate it.
It’s like hoarding. The fandom keeps collecting new stuff (information, characters, etc.), but they don’t know what to do with it. So they pile it on top of everything else, instead of first organizing, rearranging, or throwing away some of the stuff that’s already there.
Anyway, I’ll blog here again while I’m gone from that place (however long that’ll be). I’ve still got some things on my mind. I may or may not mention Winx Club, but this blog was always multi-interest. Besides, I talked about it here before I started Una di Noi Winx.
But I’ve got other series I like, too: Digimon, Ojamajo Doremi, various other anime, Critical Role (still on the Vox Machina campaign), etc. Where else am I gonna talk about them? So pretty much, things are gonna be the way they were all those years ago.
I’m finally back in paradise.
