This is not a chapter, it's an author's note. I realize that that is against the rules of Fanfiction and I'm sure this will be taken down very shortly, but I hope it reaches enough eyes to be understood.
I can't tell you how many times you people have chided me for my author's notes, and I don't really expect that this one will cause a change in that. I'm sure by now you've realized that I write them only when I'm upset with reviews and I have something to say in my defense. You can't really expect a defense to be chocolate coated and covered in sugar sweets.
So, yes, I know that there are grammatical errors in my short stories. There're more than likely grammatical errors in this author's note. Honestly? Nope, I don't care. People keep reviewing to bitch me out about A/N's I wrote being sore about grammar and people whining about it.
I'm not perfect. I'm not an editor, I'm not an English major—hell, when I wrote most of the stuff on this website I wasn't even a high-schooler. That's the major qualm I have here, actually.
I WROTE THESE THINGS YEARS AGO.
I don't mind people reviewing to say, "Oh yeah I liked this and I wish you'd update again"(even though I don't plan to) or "I actually thought this sucked for legitimate reasons that I will outline as follows."
I just hate it when people review only to tell me that I was immature and out of line when yelling at people in my author's notes. I was like, 12. 12 year olds tend to be kind of immature and out of line a lot of the time. Don't tell them about it seven years later and expect them to have a self-revelation and repent for all their sins.
Since I'm here I might as well take the time to say a few more things,
I really do appreciate you guys still reading my stories and enjoying them even though they're getting really dusty.
I'm not going to update again, no matter how many times I'm asked and how enthusiastically those requests are outlined.
I was there, too, when I thought Fanfiction was the greatest thing in the world and that I would never tire of it—but I did. I remember one of my best friends-through-Fanfiction giving up on her stories when I was in my prime and thinking to myself, how could you do that? How could you do that to yourself, to your fans? To your unfinished work?
I will never do that. I will write Fanfiction until I am dead.
You will find soon in your lives that things you think are true when you're 14 have a tendency to not be exactly as you expected them to be.
I outgrew Fanfiction. There are things in my life that are more important now.
I'm deep and tormented in unrequited love with my best friend.
I have $20,000 in college loans.
I'm designing websites under the guidance of real designers and for real organizations.
I'm going to Otakon. the best thing to ever happen to me
There's just no room in my life for the 19 hours of Fanfiction I used to write and read everyday. I'm sorry, guys.
But, this is Priah—Signing out.
