*hugs* Aww, sorry to hear that… I wish I could help more…
No no, I do appreciate that, but it’s not about needing help, honestly. It’s just a matter of me saying “This is where I’m at right now, and this is why.”
It’s just something I think you have to work through, and I’m just hoping that spelling it out might help do that.
Actually… I think having someone just acknowledge it helps. But that’s all I’d expect, and that’s fine. I think I do feel a little bit better already actually.

I hope you like it Spooky!
Maybe it's just a rut, just that time everyone goes through where nothing is wrong, but you have no drive to do anything. I'm sure it'll pass, either through time or something coming up that peaks your interest, but I wouldn't worry about it too much, you have too much swag to let this bring you down for too long.
Pffff the only swag I have is on April Fools Day. :P
I hope it is just a rut, I just wish it wasn’t an unusually pervasive one. These kinds of moods come and go with me, but they don’t usually stick around long enough to where I feel the need to address them. Funny though, I talked with my sister today and apparently she’s been going through a similar kind of funk, so… I dunno. Maybe it’s a seasonal kind of thing. It’d be a relief if it were that simple.
It’ll all work out all right eventually.
To elaborate, the show is starting to shift away from the “something for all audiences” appeal that it used to have and moving more in line with Hasbro’s bottom line in terms of intended audience.
Which means it is becoming much less palatable, far more “simplified” and overt. Oh well, nothing lasts forever, and it -is- a cartoon after all.
Well, I agree there’s definitely been a shift, which I think is disappointing and does detract from part of the appeal that I and many others have had for the show. However, I think it still has a lot of all-ages appeal for both the target age group as well as “overall cartoon fans”, and I think it still remains a cartoon that adults can sit down with their kids and be able to enjoy it with them.

AAAAAA yaaay, there we go! Great job spookyewe and thank you! Send me a note with a request if you’d like!
I’ll have a more finished version of Woolma up here in just a moment.
