I just wanted to say, that I am first to admit that I wrote my story, "Rosa", as an AH AU OOC fanfiction. I will never ever ever hide that fact, and I am not ashamed to admit that Twilight, although not the most literary of works, did capture my imagination and 'bring it back' at a time in my life where I needed something to vent my energies into. Thus, 'Rosa' was formed. I was never well known on here, but the reviews I received were unbelievably supportive and for that, I will always be hugely grateful. I have saved them all into a document so I didn't lose them because the encouragement I received was something I'd never had before! I met my best friend on here, which I am also unbelievably grateful for, and I would never 'delete' any traces of my being here in an attempt to cover up something for which I feel no shame!
However, I would say, that after finishing this fanfiction, I removed it from this site because I decided to write Rosa, and the other characters of my OWN creation (Sean, Annie, William) into a separate, original novel, and didn't want these, original characters still harboured on here. :)
So I guess this is just a bit of a disclaimer - Twilight was my starting point, and I will never forget that, or hide that, or contest that. But any links or similarities remaining are tenuous and ungrounded, and I would hate for people to think I was still using characters or creating stories which were not mine.
