Hello guys… I’m still alive!!
I’m sorry for the long inactivity on this account. I’ve been very busy with assignments, and other stuff which has prevented me from drawing things to post here. Not to mention my internet connection isn’t doing really well lately, so I haven’t been checking Tumblr very much.
I’ve just answered all of your asks though, and I apologize for being so late.
I hope to be able to post something new very soon, even if it’s just school work or Disney studies or whatever, if you’re interested.
Thank you very much to you all and see you soon! :D

THERE YOU ARE AHAHAHAH
X-Men is a weird story in which one thing dragged another until I got into the fandom.
Needless to say, just as almost every one of my long lasting fandoms, I started out hating/not being interested/not caring about X-Men.
In 2009, this classmate of mine starts saying she wants to see the Wolverine movie in cinema, and I’m like “What, that weird guy with the claws? Damn it”, my other friend already knew X-Men and was interested, so I ended up being dragged to the movie… and even though I kind of liked some scenes, still I was not interested.
Then in late 2012, they aired the movie on tv. Remembering there were some scenes I really liked back in 2009, I decided to watch it again… my opinion on the movie didn’t really change, but I got to see that Hugh Jackman is super good at acting, which made me want to see more. That dragged me into watching Les Mis, getting into Les Mis fandom, and remembering Wolverine when at the bookshop I see a huuuuge book with a giant Wolverine hand on the cover… that’s the Origin miniseries. I really like that thing, and since my birthday was coming up, my parents gave it to me as a present. I read it all in no time and I was just in awe!! After a couple of days I suddenly remembered that more X-Men movies actually existed before “Origins”… so I decided to watch them…. and boom, here we are. I started reading comics, re-watching movies, all the things basically, aaand I love this stuff :D
Thanks for asking Jo!! :D

Oh… well, we could say it started out in 1999: I already knew stuff about Star Wars, and then my mom and I went with my elementary school best friend to see Episode I. Me and my friend liked it so much that we started playing pretend all the time with SW characters… then the hype stopped, until 2005, when my mom forced me to go with her and the same old friend to see Episode III. It’s really funny for me to think about it, ‘cause I remember not wanting to go at all! I said I wasn’t interested, it was not my stuff, I didn’t care about the movie. Probably, the fact that in 2002 I hadn’t liked Episode II influenced me… but then, my mom and my friend convinced me, and it was a freaking blast. The rest is history! ;) SW also holds a special place inside of me because it really helped me overcome middle school, and I remember it as a terrible period.
Of course since then I’ve been in many other fandoms, but Star Wars kind of always ran into the background of my mind, and it still does, I guess… hehe x)
Thank you so much for asking!! :D
I know I wrote a lot, but I just love talking about how I got into fandoms duh :V
