Ever have a fandom experience that completely just deflates you? That has been me today. Talk about feeling unwelcome. I don't think I want to deal with any fandom for a while. And no, I don't want to talk about it.

In other news, I watched Howl's Moving Castle the other night. I liked it. I felt like it unraveled at the end, but it was still enjoyable. It made for a nice change of pace

*sigh* Back to homework.

*hugs* :(

I watched Howl for the first time recently, too! I got the book on a rec, but I haven't read it yet.

Oh. Wasn't the movie beautiful? I loved it. I need to read the book. I bet it's 10x better.

Aw, man. Okay, I won't ask what happened. But I will say I totally know how you feel. It's happened to me more times than I can count. I had to take a short break from that particular fandom.

*hugs* Try not to let it get you down too much.

It happens. I'm just in a bad mood. Fandom is fandom no matter where you go ;)

I'll get over it.

*hugs* don't have to say anything, just know that fandom friends love you.

I saw you did a SPN fic and I can't wait till the move is over to read it. :)

Sorry hun. *huggles*

Sometimes, sadly, fandom can let you down. All I can say is, when it does, it just generally sucks. *huggles again for good measure*

No matter what fandom, you'll always bump into some that sour the experience. It'll be fine. I just needed to vent.

Yeah, I've had some fandom experiences like that - it sucks. *hugs* I hope the rest of your day gets better!

Thanks! It always gets better. I just get annoyed sometimes.

Everyone's had that, I think. It bites.

Did you watch the Japanese version or the English-dubbed one? I've only watched the original version though, but I totally adore the movie. :D

Working for the Mandroid: Clarkmoonshayde on March 19th, 2008 08:07 pm (UTC)
I saw the English version since that was the one they played on Cartoon Network. I really liked it though. So pretty and I love weird whimsical stuff :)

Man, I know quite a few people getting bitten by fandom lately. What the hell is going on? I really don't understand how fellow geeks can cause one another such grief. Geeks, of all people, should know how to live harmoniously with one another. Good freaking night!
Working for the Mandroid: breathemoonshayde on March 19th, 2008 08:04 pm (UTC)
No kidding. But people are always power tripping. Always.

Btw, I hadn't had a chance, but I've noticec much TMNT glee coming from your general direction. I used to be a huge fan of the old 80s/90s cartoon. Good times ;)

Yeah, I've dealt with that stuff too. Hey, you want me to go over and kick some butt? I'd be more than happy to. :)

*hugs you*

Heh heh. You can't always avoid the stupid people. We're bound to bump into them eventually ;)

Howl's - have you read the book? It's, well, completely different. I think the film looks utterly beautiful, but I'm biased towards the book, because I'd already loved it for years before the film came out. It makes more sense, too - some of the stuff Diana Wynne Jones wrote is kind of difficult to convey visually.
Working for the Mandroid: Hugsmoonshayde on March 19th, 2008 07:59 pm (UTC)
I haven't read the book! But I want to now. I'll probably find it much more satisfying. I felt like the movie was glossing over a lot of material that would probably show up in the book. Books tend to be better anyway.

Just the anime fan in me had to see it because it looked sooo pretty :)

People can be dicks.

That's why you has us!

I loved Howl's Moving Castle (both book and movie versions for different reasons) I was always a bit in love with Howl - hehehe
Working for the Mandroidmoonshayde on March 19th, 2008 07:58 pm (UTC)
*hugs youse guys*

I want to check out the book. I like anime style anyway, so I've been wanting to see the movie for quite some tie, but after watching it I definitely want to read the book. :)
