I actually really miss the old days of the fandom. Not because “Ugh fandom isn’t da same” I mean my own experience with the MLP fandom.
I miss the days of the IbringdaLULZ livestream, I miss Lulz, I miss Sickness, Hagen, Temporal Walker, SoaringFlight, Wubz, Pipsqueak, Phantombadger, Citrus.
And a lot of you will say “hey you can still talk to these people right, I mean you still know Temporal Walker and Phantombadger right? I mean the latter follows you.” well yes. I guess so. but the community feel from back then was just fantastic. Could just be me remembering things stupidly but it felt simpler back then. I was just starting to do art, I met a lot of great people, had a lot of fun. Nowadays I just feel detached from everyone as they find new people to talk to, I do too. I guess it’s just a reminder not everything lasts forever.
Except Lulz’s hiatus’s
Honestly yeah, I miss it a lot too. It felt like people actually cared about me and what I had to say and what I created. We all knew each other and we all knew what we were about back in that stream.
I remember I once streamed for 11 hours straight and I still to this day do not feel like it was a waste of my time. I think about it a lot. I dunno if I would even want to stream anymore because I KNOW it would never be like it was.
But, time marches on as it were.
Just out of curiosity, what was explainablechaos’ username in the stream chat?
