Welcome, to the 'Saving Zim' appreciation page!
First of all the replies I could not formally reply to via a PM:
Oh my goodness I finally reached the end. I am new to this story and have been spending the last couple weeks reading trying to catch up, I haven't reviewed yet because I don't like dragging people back to where I am. But anyways, I love this story. You have an incredible way of making me see from a different perspective. I can feel different tension. And I understand each perspective. You have done a great job. I can not wait for the next chapter to come out so I can read along with everyone else. Can't wait to see what you'll do next, best of wishes.
Dib07: You are a godsend. I LOVE hearing your opinions, it doesn't matter how far down you are in the chapters, just hearing your voice is all that matters! I have so much more to share with you and I am incredibly pleased and honoured to hear your thoughts! Each and every review matters, because it incites my passion to keep updating (ah I am such a nervous updater it is terrible I know! Banish me!) It has been quite a journey, and it warms my heart to know how dedicated you were to read this story to its current chapter! Now that's no small feat! Your words mean the world to me.
Ok so I'm the guest who commented on chapter 3 or 6 today? And OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU SO MUCH YOUR WRITING IS SPECTACULAR. Man I was just going to take this story nice and slow but I ended up binging on it the entire day! Holy smokes the way you write is so well done and the characterization is amazing. Now I have to go do hw D: but dknskejneos I can't stop thinking about your writing and story haha!
Dib07: Again its feedback like this that keeps me sane! XD Seriously, it's so uplifting, knowing how loved and cherished this crazy story is! Gosh, I can only hope my writing continues to give you that awesome pleasure! I'm on such a high right now! Trust me, the next lump of Saving Zim is gonna be even better. And no I am not sugarcoating it. I hope you love the fudge out of it!
Omg ok so I saw this story mentioned somewhere on the Amino app and OH MY GOD I LOVE THE WAY YOU WRITE DKANKAIFJSOA. It's going to take me awhile to catch up with the others but jsbsknajsknsnsks I love your story so much!
Dib07: What, really? It's been mentioned in the Amino app WOT? Oh goodness gracious I hope it's all good things! Thank you for telling me so, oooh so excited and happy! Awww! I hope you can catch up soon, you have GOT to see what else is in store! I can't wait to show you!
To you, my dearest readers:
I have not stopped celebrating the fact that I've had so many supporters and reviewers dedicated to seeing this story through. I couldn't even imagine that this story would get the attention it did. You have all shared the heartache, love and compassion for this story and I never thought it would conclude on such a high note.
On a BIG plus note, with the blessings and suggestions of a friend (lol Rissy), for those of you who do NOT want the story to end here, you're in luck. Because this isn't the end. For those of you who would like to see Zim's new life to its fullest, I'm thinking of continuing with the next part of the series: Saving Zim: Epilogue. It's a continuation, but it's also a new start for our favourite little home invader. It's the same story, but with a new plot? If that makes any sense? XD Honestly the full scope of the story is massive and yes I'm a real nervous wreck when it comes to that notorious CHAPTER QUANTITY! So I kinda hoped it would be a good place to start anew? It'll be dark, it'll be awfully horrible, and well, lovely too. Yeah. Really lovely.
And there's also some Gary. Who's up for that? I know I am!
I wish to extend my deepest appreciations to the people who have sent me gorgeous fanart of SZ, and told me how much they've enjoyed this story. Each piece of artwork is a staggering reminder of how much this story is loved and cherished. My passion to continue this adventure with you all has grown from this in leaps and bounds.
(In no particular order) I heartfully show my warmest thanks to:
My love and appreciation also extends to Piratemonkies64, who has beautifully turned 10 chapters into audio chapters. Please, check them out on tumblr and follow the works of Slothfantasy!
These reviews have been so MASSIVELY important to me on a MASSIVE EPIC SCALE OF EPICNESS. I can't thank you all enough. It's been a wonderful and unforgettable experience for me, one that I shall cherish, and always will. This story was my first real story into the IZ fandom after so many years of absence. Thank you for making me feel so welcome! :)
I have carefully gone through the reviews, and carefully selected each name to thank you again. I think that's everyone. Let me know if I've accidently misplaced you!
It's been a wonderful journey, experiencing this story with you. It's been very emotional, more so than I was expecting, going through all the names and reviews. And I want to send a heartfelt thanks to those who supported me from the very first chapter. If it wasn't for you guys, this story may not have launched at all, so give yourselves a pat on the back!
I noticed that I lost a lot of readers along the way, but I guess that's only inevitable given the story's length, and the long time span, but this story picked up a lot of new ones too! :)
Obey The PIGGY
No Guns Only Roses
Purest of the Hearts
I noticed that
Wu the Stoic
and Burakku's Shadow!
It's been a pleasure, sharing and enjoying this story with so many dear readers and fans of the show. It's been an exciting and rewarding experience for me.
This story was a kind of extended time spent on FFN I was not expecting when I was planning on retiring from the website... then Saving Zim kinda exploded in content and it kept on going! XD
And this concludes Part One of Saving Zim more or less! XD Please let me know if you're interested in seeing more! I'd love to keep it going. It's the least I can do for you guys and gals. Ah fuck it. Imma gonna go and ruin the surprise by adding the latest part in the series, so ah yeah! Check it out if you'd like, and I'll be there to glomp you in hugs, m'kay?
