The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

When it comes to fandoms I can never really fit in. Sure, I may know much about a certain subject pertaining to a series but in reality I can never cling to something as strong as fandoms do. I'm not part of any fandoms, I'm just a fan, but the only exception would probably be Jak and Daxter, however due to the slowing halt of the series I'm forgetting things, names, people, etc. I just can never stick to something and be content with it like the rest of the fandom. I may have been quick to become completely engrossed with Shadow of the Colossus, but then I slowly died away from there too.

Sometimes I want to completely avoid fandoms because of their song and dance of harassment to those who don't agree with them. Then you have the fandom apologists who claim not to be part of the fandom, yet are offended when you point out the fandom's wrongdoing. If you feel as though you aren't part of the fandom, then you shouldn't be apologizing or going through all that effort to point out that you aren't 'those' fans, that you aren't 'those' people.

I know exactly how you feel. Believe me, I was big into Homestuck before it got all fan-filled. But take a look at any fandom and it becomes the exact same clusterfuck of aggressive liberals and sugar-high 10 year olds with no parents.
I simply do not associate with fandoms of any sort anymore.
