Here we are.



Okay. Okay, I can do this. Okay. I’m not saying goodbye to Poe Party or anything because I hate goodbyes and also you can’t really say goodbye to a concept and also we have lots of things like bloopers and other Shipwrecked work to look forward to so I’m not going anywhere.

But I have so much to say but I also have work in the morning so this will have to be quick but you guys should know by now with me these posts are never quick

Last year, my friend @pansexual-link-larkin aka Daisy, showed me Her Thing: it was a web series called 12th Grade or Whatever. It’s a contemporary version of Twelfth Night which is Daisy’s favorite Shakespearean play. And let me tell you, Daisy loved this web series. She was obsessed with it. Still is. She made gifs all the time, she forced me to let me watch it with her so we’d understand all the jokes, and she posted theories about it constantly. 

And I looked at that and thought, Wow. I wonder what it’s like to have something that is so Yours, so For You

And then. 

We can all guess what happened next. 

When this dropped, I texted Daisy and I was so excited, I was incoherent. Finally, after weeks of mild depression and anxiety and panic attacks and ickiness, I had something that was not only My Thing, but was also a lot of other people’s Things too! So I had both a new obsession and a new community to share that obsession with. And that’s been the best part of this whole Thing, y’know? 

To put it another way. 

Most of my friends grew up with Harry Potter. But being Catholic, my parents weren’t too keen on the books until I was older. So I didn’t get to wait for it to update. I arrived late to the poe party, as it were. I couldn’t write any theories because everything was pretty much already canon, and even if I could’ve written theories, I wouldn’t have been able to because everything that I was thinking had already been said. The gifs had all already been made and re-made and made to death. And as for fanfiction, well, I just didn’t have enough umph to write anything that was actually original.

But then, Poe Party happened.

And I wrote my very first ever fanfiction based off of this. 

And I made my first gifs of this.

And I wrote my first fan theories about this.

And I got to watch this update, and wait with baited breath with a bunch of internet strangers who are all really cool and fun. 

And I got to write about this. I got to connect with the creators of this. I got to watch this firsthand, be at or near the front lines of it all. And it’s been like having my own Harry Potter. 

A lot of people have stories about how their favorite Things have brought them out of dark places, and I’ve said this before, but Poe Party is that Thing for me, and you’ll never know how much it has meant to me–– to all of us.

So on behalf of the whole fandom (if I may dare to even consider myself the voice of the fandom) I want to thank the entire Poe Party cast, crew, and little world for everything you have made and will make for us. And to have made it so quickly and so well and so wonderfully is truly amazing. I’m so proud of all of you and I love what you have made and I just ugh I have no words.

This is definitely not the end. We’ll all still share stuff and make stuff and it’ll be wonderful but I just wanted to give you guys a little finale post. 

also i was just watching the livestream and Mary Kate and Sarah gave me a shoutout and guys it made my whole life ugh i cry i love you guys okay i have to go now.

Much love.

Yes! We’ll continue to love and support Shipwrecked Comedy. Whether it be fan fiction, gif sets, cosplay or fan art! Heck I tell my friends to watch it all the time@
