Hello, everyone — Lucky Joker here, and welcome to Community Celebrities!
Community Celebrities is a PHB series where people of the Poptropica community get to be in the spotlight for their involvement and activity in the community, by being interviewed here on the PHB so fellow Poptropicans can get to know them a bit more.
Please welcome Lucky Wing! You may know her as a frequent commenter here on the PHB, or as an active member of our Discord chat, the PHC. You might even recall her blog, Lucky Wing’s blog o’ fun, being nominated for best fan site in last year’s Poppies Awards.
Anyway, I recently had the chance to interview her, so you all can get to know her. Let’s get into it!
Welcome, Lucky Wing! Can you introduce yourself to everyone?
How and when did you find the Poptropica Community?
I’ve been in the community—oh, how long has it been?—wow… I think two and a half years—I feel old now! XD
I found the PHB sometime in August of 2015. I remember checking it sometime in October, but I didn’t actually comment until December. I think I officially joined the community in January 2016. I started uploading YouTube videos that March, and started blogging in October! Oh gosh, my 2-year anniversary for YouTube is coming up. I’d better get on that…
Which island is your favorite? Which is your least favorite?
Choosing a favorite is tough… I really liked Mystery Train and Counterfeit, and I enjoy randomly playing Reality TV sometimes. I also like Astro-Knights. Even though it was hard, I loved the storyline.
I didn’t like Skullduggery, even though it’s my brother’s favorite and we usually agree on these things. It just took forever, and I misread prices. (21 Skullduggery videos later…)
Who is your favorite villain in Poptropica?
This one’s no secret: Dr. Hare! Cute fuzzy bunny FTW!
What is your opinion on Poptropica Worlds so far?
I need more islands! Besides that, I do like it… even though the hands and the mole people are weird… nch. Those are a few of my complaints, minus the obvious “Where is my costumizer and friend list?”
What is your dream island?
Well, that’s a tough one! I’ve been dreaming up an island ever since I found out about the Create Your Island contest that was held a few years ago. Unfortunately, I was too late to participate in it.
I’ve always wanted to have an island where I’d have a companion that was crucial to the plot. I’m still in the process of writing it up now, so keep an eye out for that!
What are some of your real-life hobbies?
Writing, drawing, acting, more writing and drawing and acting, reading, crocheting, knifty knitting (it’s different than normal knitting; I can’t knit), singing poorly, YouTubing, blogging, being with my friends, playing video games, and making not-too-shabby music! I have a pretty crazy, fun resume. XD
Anything else you’d like to say to the Poptropica community?
Yes. You guys are the best! If I didn’t have you guys, I don’t know where I’d be. I’m so glad I found this community because I’ve met some of my dearest friends here. So dear, you guys feel like family! I don’t regret the plunge I took all those years ago, to try and come out of my shell a little bit.
I’d like to personally thank TC, Vampi, Fierce Flyer, Smart Flame, Red Rider, Friendly Foot, Shrimpy, Anne, Binary Hawk, Lucky Joker, Popular Wolf, Sporty Boa, Purple Claw, G-Hopper, and Kix (though she’s not technically in the community). You guys are part of my digital family and I really do love this place! If I didn’t write your name, I still love you; I was just in a hurry.
Poptropica was my childhood, and now it’s my life. Thank you all for being part of it! Lucky Wing signing out, bai guys!
A big thanks to Lucky Wing for taking the time to do this interview with me. I really enjoyed what she had to say, and I hope everyone else did too!
Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading, as always! Talk to you in the next one.
