Having heard Nostalgia Critic’s review of Star vs. the Forces of Evil, I compare notes with my own thoughts on the show, while also reaffirming why I love fanfics of the show so much.
Okay, people, on this day one year ago, we saw the ending to two awesome shows. One of them was an animated cartoon, while the other was an adaptation of the life’s work of a guy that’s dragging his heels on finishing his work. Rather than talk about the ending to Game of Thrones since there’s enough hate for that, I wanted to talk about the end to the other good show on May 19th, 2019.
Have you ever looked at two shows and thought that they would work great together? Whether its the premise or the characters they have, you just think these two shows would go together like peanut butter and jelly. However, that dream PB&J crossover sandwich can never happen for one reason or another. Fortunately, the power of fandom’s and the Internet can change that. For my next fan fiction pick, this is one such case where we get the sandwich. Only the peanut butter and jelly’s made from two bright stars.
Over the last few months, I’ve covered a lot of fan fiction revolving around Star vs. The Forces of Evil. It’s my way of dealing with the need I have for more Star vs. content because, despite enjoying the finale, I was left wanting more. Lucky for me, a lot of the fan fics I find end up being pretty good. However, I don’t think I’ve found a fan fic quite like Royal Secrets by BlackWolfWrites.
A running gag throughout the Star fandom is the fact that Marco winds up having a bunch of different girls attracted to him. Thus, he’s the subject to heavy shipping in the fandom. Starco, Jarco, Janco, Markapoo, Kellco, Higgsco! The guy’s like a harem anime protagonist. So, in this next fan-fic, we run with that idea and see how far it can go.
In my first series of putting the spotlight on fan fic writers and artists, I give you KPRS4ever, talented fan artist and fanfic writer.
Remember that week of Star vs fan fiction I did a few months ago? There was actually another pick I had that I ultimately chose not to include. However, I’ve decided that this story’s just too good to not talk about. It captures the spirit of the show in writing style and in artwork. Not to mention I’ve become good friends with the author on Twitter. So, time to get a little weird and a little wild when two worlds collide!
At the end of last year, I dubbed 2019 as the “Year of Endings”. With the year now almost over, I’m looking back at some of the things we said goodbye to this year.
As we end the decade, I wanted to look back on my favorite cartoons of this Animation Renaissance we’ve gone through. Here are my top ten favorite cartoons of the 2010s in no order!
With SvTFOE on Disney+ (finally), I couldn’t resist giving my honest thoughts about the show’s Christmas Special, Stump Day! PS- I Don’t Trust the Stump!
I’ve had so much fun reading Hippie’s Monster Love series, I decided to do a character analysis of his stories. First is Moon and Monsters!
This is A Tale of Moon and Monsters, and its sequel, Star the Monster Princess. Two stories made by my new internet friend, The Wandering Hippie.
I’ve spent the last week going over some of the best fan works for Star vs. The Forces of Evil. More so I wanted to do this for my enjoyment. I’ve saved the best for last, though. This AU’s good enough to be it’s own show, hitting all the right notes to tell an original story that retains all the hallmarks of Star. This is the story of a boy who was raised by monsters, Light of the Sun and Stars.
It’s the next-generation, fanmade sequel the show deserves. Instead of being about the kids of the cast, this is about Mariposa and Meteora. I give you Echo Creek: A Tale of Two Butterflies
I have been having a blast writing about the different fan works for Star vs. The Forces of Evil this week. Even if people don’t read them now, it’s been as fun writing about these works as it was reading them. This next one, though, is going to be darker than any of the other ones I’ve done. Marco Diaz becomes an unlikely hero in The Royal Protector.
All rights to this story go to ADdude, Daron Nefcy, and Disney. ADdude, I love your story.
Today’s fanwork, Like Father, Like Daughter, asks two things: what if the status quo didn’t go back to normal, and what if Star came a few seconds later?
