Happy self insert day!
I hope self insert day becomes a regular thing! It’s so important that people can put themselves in the stories they love without being made fun of for it or fearing that they’ll be put into cringe compilations. Fiction exists for enjoyment above all else. Even if I’m more of a writer than an illustrator, and even if I know this could be much better, it’s nice to see myself with the characters who mean the world to me. Let people have fun!
By some divine chance, this also coincides with the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of Wall.E. There are so, somany things I could say about what this movie has done to my life. So many people say “I can’t imagine what I’d be without _______,” and I guess I’m just another one of those saps. There is no part of me that would be remotely the same in a world without this movie. It became a core part of my being the moment I saw it when I was a piddly little ten-year-old (well, as piddly as a five-foot-something, 150 pound kid can be). I’m pretty much convinced I was put on this planet to love this movie. Plus, as the years have gone on, I’ve only fallen harder and harder for EVE Probes.
Roll call under the cut!
