Hey all, thank you to those that have supported me throughout my time on here but, I've decided that today I'm going to be leaving this DA account and moving back to my old one. Like I said before I want to start drawing more original artwork. And work on my own OC stories and stuff.
I will be using this account from now on.
So feel free to follow me there if you'd like. If I do ever do anymore Fan art it will be posted on there from now on.
Now there are a few things I need to say before I go....
I feel the ships and characters from the series I was into will always hold some sort of place in my heart. But it's time I let go and move on. I used to love drawing them but by this point it's just "meh" now, like a chore almost. Mainly with south park it was a lot of fun in the beginning to be in. Mainly because I was not alone I had someone I had joined it with but they moved on about half way through the first year. But I still liked drawing the characters very much. However as time went on I grew less and less interested in it. It would be fun talking to people every once and a while about south park briefly but it would soon come to an end shortly after. So I didn't really have anyone I could talk to about the things that interested me in it and I just kind of felt alone in it.
It also didn't help that there was the whole big shipping war thing going on either and people were hating on other people's ships a lot. I didn't want to talk to anyone new because I thought I would just make them mad or they would attack me for not seeing the same views as them. So I stayed quiet for most of my time online. But even now there's a whole bunch of fighting going on in the fandom still, not just on Tumblr but Facebook and Youtube as well. *Sigh* I'm just tired of it. Tired of ship wars, tired of the hate, tired of fans fighting with one another, tired of feeling alone in this fandom, just tired of it. And all I want to do now is move on.
There were several times I wanted to leave throughout the year too, as some of you might have noticed the long periods of time I was away for. Because I just had no interest anymore and was just bored with it. To be honest I'm surprised I've lasted as long as I have in this fandom. Because there were times were I got really depressed being in it. And felt like giving up on drawing altogether at times. If anything, the only thing that kept me holding on for so long were the AU's I created and sheer willpower and stubbornness. Not the show, not the fandom. I have this thing about me where I tend to be quite stubborn sometimes, too stubborn to quit. And I really wanted to share those AU stories with whoever may have wanted to see them but, I'm worn out now and I just can't do it anymore. All I want is to go.
I had a lot of fun when I first joined the South Park fandom and it brought me joy. Now all it brings is disappointment to me.
