Wow! Powerful! Except for a few of the personal details, how did you know how I feel? Exceptionally wonderful! Thank you for sharing this with us!
I've seen a lot of ripples in the peacefulness of the Fandom lately. It seems that someone is always starting some kind of drama and someone else always gets hurt. Especially at this time, 'Alive Again' is a definite must-read. We should strive to feel unity, admiration, mutual respect and affection once again. I will be encouraging my fellow authors to check this out.

Yes, I will be your Valentine. Your honest words completely resonated with me. I've been on a bit of a journey myself in the last 2 years and this community has literally saved my sanity and given me a reason to get up in the morning. This little piece reminded me of all of the good to be found here and what I need to focus on when the nastiness erupts. There is so much more good than bad here. Thank you for reminding me.

Dear Ms AnnaLund,
Kharizzmatik tweeted about this and I'm so glad she did.
Your beautiful, honest words put tears in my eyes. It's not just about a series of stories - it's about a community which comes together with actions and words that can make someone's day and make a difference, provide an escape from the real world of worries and even raise thousands for a worthy cause.
I hope you had a nice Valentines day but also that you have an amazing day, every single damn day because that's what such a beautiful person like you deserves.

Dear Anna, you're amazing. This has brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.
Ps change the disclaimer, because this? It most definitely does NOT belong to SM :)

What an incredibly touching piece you have written.
Reading what you've written has made me think a lot about my own reasons for getting into the fandom and when my BF rolls his eyes because I'm watching Twilight again or reading more fanfiction I smile at him but remember just how much this fandom has helped me come to terms with things in my life that I can't my story is different the result is the same.A life of taking medicine and the knowledge that I can't become a 's a bitter pill to swollow but with time I have learnt to come to terms with it(almost)and the lovely community that we are a part of often puts a smile on my face.
Much love to you Anna.

Thank you for sharing this. It's just how I feel :)
"It is like truly finding a long lost family. It is like finding your pack, the people you need to be able to run free again."
YES. Just like that.
Happy Valentines Day. 3

You touched me too. Your sweet words hit home. I am wiping my tears as I type this. I ask not a writer although I would life to be one. But that is not my gifting. I started reading fan fic cuz I didn't want the Twilight story to end, I wanted more. I stumbled into fic and read some really bad stuff, but then I started finding gems. I didn't review at first cuz I never trusted my words and I never thought my words mattered. When I started reviewing, I never got a response until one sweet author told me how much my review meant to her. I met her on twitter and found others like her. When you said you found your pack, I can relate. I'm not alone anymore. My daughter laughs at me cuz she calls my new friends "twitter friends"and are not real. She has no clue.
I have been married for 29, I have 3 grown children. I feel like I'm on the side lines at times. You and others have touched my life and have enhanced it so much. I started sharing some stories with my husband (the really good ones w/o too much smut in them) and we started reconnecting again.
Thank you so much for voicing what was in your heart and in doing so, voicing what is in my heart.

Beautiful. Thank you.

I don't know if anything - or a lot - of your life is in this story, but it is very moving. If less dramatic, my experience is similar . My illness is one for which there is no cure. Getting old. Real old. To write and to find this community has helped me to fight despair and be young in spirit.

Beautifully articulated and very moving! This is a journey of rediscovery, of finding yourself again, and for that I'll be eternally grateful. Thank you for sharing a part of yourself here. It's a wonderful feeling to know that not only are you not alone, but also in the company of generous, like-minded souls. Much love. xox
