TOPIC | What is the Onceler?
1 2
So, I wasn't on the internet when the Onceler was a thing,(some parts of rural america don't have viable internet options) and it just came up in this Human Baldwin thread. I tried looking it up, but that only lead to more confusion. Can someone explain?

Oh god I’m having war flashbacks,,,

Okay the Onceler is a character out of a Dr Seuss book that was made into a movie called The Lorax. Long story short, he was one of Tumblrs sexy men back in the day & it sounds super weird but he had a massive fan base & a lot of AU versions of him were created lol

The Onceler fanbase was also probably the biggest influence on popular AUs within fandom today.

I also have to shamefully admit I was low key part of this fan base for a very short time & read fanfics of him.

I’d recommend watching this if you have the time, it explains it pretty well. Fair warning, it’s real long.

The Onceler is a Dr. Seuss character, anybody who says anything more is hysterical and everything they say should be disregarded entirely.

"It is so easy to be hopeful in the daytime when you can see the things you wish on. But it was night, it stayed night. Night was striding across nothingness with the whole round world in his hands . . . They sat in company with the others in other shanties, their eyes straining against cruel walls and their souls asking if He meant to measure their puny might against His. They seemed to be staring at the dark, but their eyes were watching God."
