Fantasmic has closed!

There comes a time when all good things must end, and sadly, it is that time for us. After five and a half wonderful years, the lights are going down on our Fantasmic stage.

Fantasmic was born in early 2008, a little plotbunny created after Kat viewed it's namesake Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios one evening. All those characters on that finale boat, coming together in one dream, one place. Wouldn't that make a grand rp? There be no limitations of "Oh, but this character couldn't possibly get here" or "But they aren't from the same movie!" Anything is possible, after all, in Mickey's imagination.

And so Fantasmic was born. And little did any of us really realize what would come of it. Over the years, we have become FAMILY, and have created amazing friendships. Some of us have even met up outside the computer. We have become so close, so tight-knit, that we are able to share our problems and help each other through both the good and the bad. We are always here for each other.

And no matter what, that won't change.

Mickey's dreams are finally coming to an end here at Fantasmic. Though we have put off the idea of closing for about a year now, we have come to the conclusion that it is what's best for the board itself. But that doesn't mean the community has to die along with it. We hope to keep the spirit of Fant alive through Mouse Ears, which is Kat's Disney discussion forum. Ammers, Rune and Ky will be joining on as staff, so you'll have that familiarity! But here are some of the other perks you will find in this transition.

  • Similar to our "Dr Genie" board, we will have a "Fant-only" area for the veterans of Fantasmic on Mouse Ears. It will be viewable only to you, the Fant refugees, for any discussion you want to keep 'in the family'.

  • What most of you came here for was, of course, the roleplaying. Rest assured that you will have the ability to roleplay with your friends on ME, too! There are many perks to this more 'free-form' sort of roleplaying.
    Say you want to play character A, but just for the one plotsie in your head. You don't want to app for them and feel obligated to have them in five MILLION plots, when you only really wanted to do the one. Well, now you don't have to! You just play whoever you have muse for, at leisure. No more sitting on characters, no more plots you don't really want to play, no more stress of activity checks, no more word count, and best of all... NO MORE APPLICATIONS. We know that so many love their characters, but lose muse or time for them. But they don't wish to give them up because they are part of them. This will give you the opportunity to rp when you want, when you have time to, and won't hurt others who may want to play with that character too.

  • It's a discussion board, so... discussion! You have your Disney, of course, but we also have areas for Once Upon A Time, Marvel, Star Wars, and of course all the OOC areas for your Game Of Thrones, Sherlock, and whatever else floats your boat. We have graphic challenges, art contests, games... pretty much everything. A great variety of things to do if you're not in the mood for rping.

I realize it's a huge change, but at this point we feel we've made the right decision for the community and for Fant itself. As many of us graduate, or turn a new page in our lives, so must Fantasmic change as well. I love you all so very much; you are my second family and it has been a JOY to be your 'mama' of sorts over the years. I hope you do come over and join in on the fun at Mouse Ears so that we can all remain together. I do think that in the long run this will be a better, more stress-free option for all.

Fant will remain open until June 16th so you can finish out anything you need to, say your goodbyes, and get yourselves situated before making the move! Once it is closed, it will be a 'read-only' archive. You will be able to see all your old threads, but will not be able to post on them. If you want to continue your threads, we encourage you to do so on Mouse Ears!

If you have any questions, concerns, etc, please don't hesitate to post or contact us. :) And if this is the end of your journey with us and you chose not to travel to our new home with us, know that we love you, and we hope you'll pop into the cbox every once in awhile to say hi!
