I've been thinking of making this post for days. It just feels...necessary.

I want to take this moment, outside of responding individually to people's comments on my stories, to just THANK YOU ALL SO FUCKING MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All of my readers and commenters... I just don't thank you enough, I think. I can't tell you how grateful I am for all of you taking the time to read what I write and let me know you enjoyed it. It means so very much to me, and I cherish all of your comments on my stories.

Fandom runs on mutual affection -- our affection for our source material, for certain characters, for writing/drawing/pod-ficcing, and for each other.

I just wanted to take a moment today and say thank you for being this beacon of light in my life, for appreciating what I write, for sharing this with me, and for being truly awesome people who I look forward to interacting with daily. From the lurker who has to gear themselves up to say, "I really liked this," (maybe someone I hardly know), to those of you who have become some of my closest friends, people I will be grateful for knowing my whole life...thank you ALL for making this a place I can come and experience true community, support, laughs, tears, advice, and encouragement.

I love fandom, and I love you guys.

Thank you!

I'm not always. I fuck up (sometimes huge) like anybody else. But I'm really glad you think of my presence as mostly positive. That means a lot to me, Kat. Thank YOU for sharing your amazing art with us!!!

Aww, this is so sweet!

Fandom runs on mutual affection -- our affection for our source material, for certain characters, for writing/drawing/pod-ficcing, and for each other. <-- This is perfect. :)

Aww, your post has made me all giddy, because it's exactly how I feel about it too. It means so much to me to be part of this community and sometimes "thank you" just doesn't feel like enough. And EVERYONE feels like that, and that's part of what makes our little corner of the internet so fantastic.

You are a lovely person and I'm so glad you're here, and I'm so grateful to have gotten to know you, and to read all of your awesome words. ::squishes you::

*adores you and tour fic so very much*

You are lovely. So talented and so very generous with your advice and support. I am so glad we can be friends, even if I do sometimes feel like the heart-eyed fangirl in the corner.

Wow. What a lovely thing to say! I confess that when I posted this, it didn't occur to me that I'd receive all this love in return. I mean, I seriously didn't do it for that reason. But wow. It's lovely. Thank you! <3
