I haven't been to this account in forever. I wanted to delete it. I wrote all of my stories between the ages of 13 and 15. You can imagine how sophisticated and intelligent they were:) It's thoroughly cringe-worthy to look back at them. I know this isn't a diary, and I don't expect anyone to be reading this. But if you are reading, and if you're an active FanFictioner that writes and reviews and favourites stories, I just want you to know that you're changing people's lives. There are thousands, tens of thousands of you that have changed mine, and you've been a bigger part of me and the girl I am today than you can possibly imagine. I'll never be able to thank you enough for all of your kind words, and the beauty and happiness you filled me with in what were the lonliest years of my life. I'm so proud to be a part of this community, even though I don't write anymore. I'll always have the laughter and sheer joy and tears and emotions and love I received from you. I hope some of you have gotten at least a little of that from me. Look at me going on like I've won an award or something:) I just hope someone reads this someday and knows that I'm grateful to you, and if you're going through as tough a time as I was, just don't give up. My life is far from ideal right now, but I just hope that whoever you are, you see this and know that there's some random girl out there in the world who's rooting for you, and I hope that makes a difference. Thank you, FanFiction. You've saved my life more times than I can count.
