I make personal posts bringing up milestones often-ish, but I feel like this one is special. A year ago on April 3rd, 2017 this blog made its first post. Everything that’s happened since then has been phenomonal. Over 50 pages of content, nearly 900(!) followers, and so, SO many friends made that I would not have met otherwise. Incredible art, foreign duck stories not available here, episode geeking out, gifs, conversation, and overall outpourings of support. Even though there’s been drama here and there, every fandom has that and I can honestly say that the Duck fandom has been one of the best experiences I’ve had so far. It’s wonderful to be among so MANY peers, all of us joined together in one thing, our love for a bunch of fluffy little quackers.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again.  Thank you to everyone supporting this blog, and sharing in this fandom with me.  Y’all make this so worthwhile and so much fun.

What Made You Decide to Make a Tumblr: I wanted to blog a whole bunch of Duck things but didn’t want to spam my main blog (which for the two above questions: roughly 2010 and 496).  So I made a sideblog instead and haven’t looked back.

I tag: Anyone who wants to do it?

And then after making that post my shuffled playlist decided to strike up

I mean, if ever there were a time, a photoset featuring Magica would be it.

Hey there, everybody. I want to apologize for not updating and in general being out of touch lately.  I’ve been going through a real depressive slump lately, and it’s been hard to get up the will to do things I enjoy, and maintaining this blog was one of the affected.  That compounded on top of some other stresses I had regarding this blog (nothing that’s anything worth talking about), and updating this became more of a chore than anything else. 

That being said, I want to continue this.  I just passed 800 followers, which is really incredible, and makes me want to continue putting out content for you guys.  But with that I also wanted to be upfront about where I’ve been, and it’s been all depression and stress. I’ve been out of touch on Tumblr and on Discord, and I’m sorry about that.  Effective immediately this blog is getting updates again, and I’m going to start being around… more.  It might be slow at first because I’m still mentally kneecapped, but I’m going to do my best.

Thank you for your patience, your shared fandom love, and for following me. Onward to ducks, for the forseeable future o/

New side platform!  Out of Context Ducks over on Twitter, for postings of exactly what it sounds like.  Duck images taken out of context.  Images there will be from here 95% of the time so if you don’t have both don’t worry, this is just a fun little extra thing for any Twitter users who might like to follow~

You know, as of late this blog’s been pretty All Scrooge All the Time

OH WELL

Oh wow! a veteran Uncle Scrooge fan and do you…

Oh wow! a veteran Uncle Scrooge fan and do you prefer original Ducktales with Alan Young or the new one with David Tennant? I've been an Alan Young girl since I was kid.There's that grandfatherly classiness in the way Young does Scrooge which is why I like him and I found out about Scrooge from watching Twice Upon a Christmas on DVD with my cousins and started having a fascination with his aristocratic snobbishness and fierce temper (like Donald).I loved him since and I have wishes of wealth.

Alan Young will always be my Scrooge.  Like, there’s something enjoyable about the way any of Scrooge’s VAs have done him– Bill Thompson (”Scrooge McDuck and Money”) and the charming rhymes; Will Ryan (”Sport Goofy in Soccermania”) and his spirit and the immortal “A͘N̸D͟ ͠WI͠N BĄCK ḾY͠ ̀TRO̵PH̛YY̧Y̧YY̢Y̶Y

; Tennant and his…. Scottishness and everything else –but Young has exactly what you said.  A grandfatherliness to him that still has potential for that McDuck temper and stinginess.  He’s the Scrooge I grew up with, and nobody’ll ever top him in my own personal book, even with as good a Scrooge as Tennant is (and he’s a GREAT Scrooge, don’t get me wrong).

Besides, nobody does Scrooge’s laugh quite like Alan Young did.

Hey,what do you like about Scrooge McDuck? And…

Hey,what do you like about Scrooge McDuck? And how did you find out about him? I found about him as a kid and loved him since.

To answer the second question first, I first found out about him when I was small.  My dad had a box of old comic books and in there were, among other series that I’d read, were some old Uncle $crooges.  I would read them all the time, apparently even learning TO read on some of them (which I’ve talked about before~ ).  I was also little when the first DuckTales came out, so there was that too!

As for what I like about him, is everything a good enough answer?  He’s such a well-rounded character (not to say that the other Ducks aren’t, of course), and you can do endless things with him.  I enjoy comic and animated versions equally; the comic Scrooge is bitter but good-natured, is absolutely RIDICULOUS in the schemes he tries to pull off (keyword: tries), and you never really know what he’s going to do next but at the same time he’s endlessly predictable.  It’s a great blend.  And as for the animated Scrooge, he’s got this Everybody’s Grandfather/Uncle attitude that can be a great thing to come home to at the end of a long day (read: my best cheer-up for when I’m low is putting on the original DuckTales), but so too does he have his jerk moments, his bitter attitude, his “/SPINNING DOLLAR SIGN EYES” stuff that’s so great about Scrooge in general.

I just love Scrooge, good and bad sides.  He’s been with me, in its own way, since I was a tiny little thing, and I wouldn’t want a time without that.
