And it proved again that with my tendency to be attracted to the good even in things I'm not a fan of, I can be slowly drawn into being a fan.
For Adventure Time, which I criticized months ago for being just a little too slow for a show brought up on the random humor and just being so uninteresting that I personally could not stand sitting through any episodes, it was the whole story of Simon Petrikov that got me into the show.
I kept seeing fanart everywhere with a little Marceline and a man I didn't recognize and decided to dig deeper. And God that...that backstory...it's dramatic, it's tragic, it's amazingly moving and the effects it had on those is the present is all the same.
When Marceline reads the notes from him...the one that's apologizing to her and saying that it's the crown and he's sorry beforehand for the times when he'll forget about her...
I got the same feels from the two of them...When I saw that episode, I was DROWNING IN FEELINGS. I CAN'T. I JUST CAN'T.
I've had some deep emotional reactions from other shows, but out of all the cartoons I've ever watched, "Adventure Time" was the only one that actually made me cry. I could spend hours talking about all the feels I get from this show.
