Why So Silent by SarcasticLeaves Why So Silent by SarcasticLeaves
"WordGirl: What's with the mask? You think it will make you more mysterious or something?
Tobey: Actually it's part of a clever disguise. I'm hiding out.
WordGirl: Why?
Tobey [whispers]: Fangirls.
WordGirl: And you honestly think disguising yourself as the Phantom of the Opera would help?
Tobey: What do you mean?
Tobey: :O_o: Oh, crackers and jam, this isn't going to end well. :sprint:
[Tobey comes back after escaping from the fangirls]
Tobey: They're animals! O_O
WordGirl [admiring his Phantom mask she stole]: Yeah...
[Huggy squeaks]
[Tobey glaces up, WordGirl quickly hides the mask behind her back]
WordGirl: They really are... :blush:

I had the honor to collaborate with the amazing :iconvoiceactresskurutta:! :D As most of you are probably aware, today is the premier of "Tobey's Playground Calamity". :D The first Tobeysode of the season!!! :squee: I think most of us can agree that it's been far too long!!! Believe it or not this collaboration almost didn't exist due to the careless editors of the guide referring to it as "Today's Playground Calamity" instead of "Tobey's Playground Calamity". Combined with the vague description, ~VoiceActressKurutta and I began to wonder if it was even a Tobeysode. ^^; It wasn't til the amazing :iconglowin-theshark: saved the day with her journal providing a link that did in fact confirm it was in fact a Tobeysode! :dance: And with that we proceeded to finish this in time for the episode. :D

For those of you who are unfamiliar to "The Phantom of the Opera" here's a clip based off the wonderful scene ~VoiceActressKurutta drew in the beginning! :dance: [link] Full credit for the comic and the song parody goes to her! :D This also goes along with the first sketches I drew before: [link]

WordGirl belongs to Soup2Nuts
The Phantom of the Opera story belongs to Mr. Gaston Leroux
The Phantom of the Opera Musical belongs to Mr. Andrew Lloyd Webber

To be honest, I’ve actually been feeling a little… down about my Tobey fangirl side recently, its really depressing.
I mean, I love Tobey just as much as the next Tobey fangirl, but I feel very… disconnected.
Not to mention I’m at a disadvantage seeing as I live in Australia, but… The thing is, the Tobey fandom is INSANE, lol. Sooooo many fangirls, its crazy! And don’t get me wrong, that is a GREAT thing! But I see all this in-depth discussions over Tobey. I find SO many people with exactly the same opinions as me about him – which is great – but then its kind of a strange feeling that dozens (maybe not dozens) of other girls are doing all my squee-ing for me. I see all this brilliant artwork that takes my breath away… and here I am, barely a Tobey picture in sight.
I’m use to fanning out over characters that get no love – hate, if anything. Its like its my job to provide these characters with love, seeing as they are so unloved! I’m glad to be a part of a wonderful, flourishing fandom here on dA. I just wish I was a major part of it; but it just feels redundant a little, like so many other girls are fanning out for me, so I don’t need to.
I also have a lot of other obsessions to attend to – its hard to keep up.
Because of all these other fangirls, I’m beginning to doubt my Tobey-fangirl abilities, and rethink how obsessed I really am with him. If I had the easy accessibility that most of the other fans do – (WordGirl on the TV, access to PBS Kids Go website, lots of spare time and ability to draw the characters well LOL) then no doubt I would be deep among the crowd, but now I feel a bit of an outsider.
Its like the fact that BECAUSE Tobey is so popular, he is losing appeal for me. When I encounter characters and I’m practically the only, number-one-fan, my obsessions always go sky-high. :shrug: I don’t know. Lol. Just thought I’d type what I’ve been feeling lately, sigh. I’m worried for my inner Tobey-fangirl! :O
I don’t know whats wrong with me! I love tobey SO much, his smooth, fake English accent, his clothes, his personality, bowtie, glasses… the large fandom might be just making me feel a little overwhelmed and unsure, that’s all, lol.

I hope my Tobey-fangirl grows larger than life and comes back soon!!! :(
Maybe I just feel like I’m not as authentic with my Tobey love as the rest of you are. With the rest of my character obsessions, I feel very close, in-touch and on top of the fandom. But the Tobey fandom is SO overgrown, plus I’m constantly missing episodes, updates and news. Its been forever since I’ve had a Tobey conversation, or a Tobey-squee-freakout! Its scary. I should have been so much better when I watched that Tobey episode, but my reactions were so minimal. :iconcryforeverplz:

Sorry for ranting :(

I wish the rest of the characters I'm obsessed with had equally large fandoms as Tobey, lol. But they are all so unheard of. Tobey himself is lucky for getting himself quite such a gathering ;)

I guess I feel like I had a spark of obsession, then a major mob of others with the same obsession came along and swept me away, and took my spark of with them...

I'm sorry you've been feeling that way. :hug: I'm also sorry that you're unable to get access to WordGirl episodes. :( Stuff like that can be most frustrating. I experienced the same thing with Jacob Two-Two since it wasn't an American cartoon.

Don't worry, I'm sure your Tobey-fangirl will come back. :hug: Just give it sometime. We all go through phases and times when our inspiration runs a little low, sometimes we just need the right thing to come by to inspire us again. :-) I happens to me quite often.

No worries. :hug: Sometimes you just need to let it out. I just wish I could be more help. ^^;
