"kid’s show"

I hate it when people say something isn’t a kid show just because it has some deep stuff in it. Believe it or not, kids aren’t dumbasses. They can understand concepts like this, and it’s important for shows aimed at them to teach them these things instead of just mindless garbage. Being deep doesn’t change it from being a kids show, it’s not wasting itself on kids for that reason. It’s teaching them, and that’s wonderful.

You know what’s sad about reading books? It’s that you fall in love with the characters. They grow on you. And as you read, you start to feel what they feel - all of them - you become them. And when you’re done, you’re never the same. Sure you’re still you, you look the same, talk in the same manner, but something in you has changed. Something in the way you think, the way you choose, sometimes, even the things you say may differ. But it all comes down to the state you go to after a nice novel. The after-feeling. It’s amazing, but somehow, you feel left alone by that world you were once in. It’s overwhelming. But it makes you sad. Cause for once you were this, this otherworldly being in… Neverwhere, and then you suddenly have to say goodbye after a few weeks from when you read the last page. When you’ve recovered from that state it’s just… quite sad.
