Jack Frost is the Guardian of Fun, a 300+ year-old winter spirit prone to mischief, mistakes, and occasional heroics. This particular Jack is from the Guardian of Screwing Up series of fanfics, which means he's prone to losing his shirt, making Bunny lose something spelled almost like "shirt," and having life-changing field trips with African spider myths.
Fair warning: This is just an ask journal, I don't really do RP. And while I do asks still, it's only occasionally. Mostly, I post things like ROTG gifs and canon discussions. I also post a little bit from other Dreamworks movies and general animation. So you might find stuff from:
- The Croods
- Gravity Falls
- general stuff about fandom/writing.
The YJ thing is really bizarre too, because literally, the writers were sitting there like “WTF guys, we’ve got another TWO SEASONS worth of story written and ready to go. Give us some artists and we got this shit.” There was no lack of material.
That’s tragic. I still haven’t seen all of the last season but I was so thrilled with what they were doing with Jaime. Ugh.
IDK but seriously, YJ was doing really well, both in ratings and merch sales, but there were TOO MANY GIIIIIRLS so they nixed it and like. I can’t even comprehend WHY. They literally THREW AWAY MONEY. Because cooties or something.
If they’re that worried about fuckin action figures or some shit maybe girls would buy them if they actually made ones of female characters.
For instance, there were tons of little girls and even little boys looking for action figures of Katara and Toph from Avatar: The Last Airbender and all they made was like ten million versions of Aang, Sokka, and Zuko.
That was the dumbest marketing move in the world. ATLA was so popular, they would’ve flown off the shelves, since boys and girls wanted them to have the whole Gaang.
When it was cancelled, YJ still had good ratings, but a large portion of the fanbase was female.
I wonder if you have to pass a special asshole test to be in those production roles for cartoons.
I’m pretty sure I was thinking of that. Didn’t Greg Weisman speak out about it?
IIRC it was getting decent ratings, too, but they didn’t like that the makeup of the fanbase had so many women and girls.
