who is sessiles?????
hi... there's not much to say. this section used to have stuff about me, but who really cares now. im alive, for now, and im a person. i'd like people to use they/them referring to me. i have short hair. i have bipolar disorder. i love the lion king and my favorite scent is sea island cotton from bath and body works. i'm a person! regarding fic, all i've ever written for has been ygo dm. one time in 5th grade i won an award for a story about talking trees, though. i chose sessiles as a pen name because when i was still actively writing, i was in high school, junior year, and in a marine biology class and "sessile" is a term for something that does not move, which describes me most days. i'm in my first year of college writing this now and that hasn't changed, regrettably. i have absolutely no aspirations for the future and am currently 100% drifting.
inactivity and farewell
i do not actively write anymore. i don't think i've actually written anything since late 2012/early 2013. any new uploads is me moving stuff around...i have chosen to use ffnet as the final resting place for everything i have written, i dont like ao3 or tumblr as writing platforms, but i actually ended up deleting most of my writing, anyway. it's kinda sad how easy it was to delete something i worked hard on once and know that all that time was for nothing, that no one will ever know that that piece existed except for me (and even i've forgotten most of it!) i guess i'm being poetic here, because this is probably the last time i'll have any sort of writing posted like this, and it's a farewell note. so forgive this prose. i originally wrote this in november 2014, and i'm updating it now in january 2015 because 1. i got a notification that someone had added me as a favorite author, which made me blush so much i just had to check it out, and 2. to erase links i had posted to other social media sites, because being invisible is fun (come and find me! I dare you!)
when i originally wrote this in that november of 2014, it told me the last time i had logged in was february 2014. and so it's time i formally mark the end to this chapter of my life (how poetic am i??) YGO was a great retreat while i was going through a rough patch in my life (well, i still am...life is a series of different rough patches...but a different rough patch than today's is what i am talking about) and i met a lot of amazing people through its online fandom. a lot that i still am friends with and keep in contact with, actually! i can assure you that i still dream about my darling angstshipping kids on a daily basis, but i have no creative motivations whatsoever anymore. i have been very depressed for years, i dont see myself going anywhere in life and these feelings have severely inhibited any creativity for almost two years now, so i think its safe to say im hanging up the pen...throwing in the pencil...see, i've lost every bit of creativity ever, this sentence is proof. point is, i'm finished!
do not fear...well, fear a little. originally i posted links to some other accounts where you can find me, but it just doesn't sit right with me leaving links up on a site where i will never go back to update them. maybe that's just what needs to be done to really separate what i've written here to who i am now. so why haven't i deleted the last few? well, i really did put a lot of care into some of that stuff. past-me would probably knock present-me out for deleting their writing so easily. and i guess because i've seen people enjoy it, and that makes me feel even a little happy. i remember when i actively read fanfic, and how much i loved certain stories/authors, and would have been so upset if things i like got taken down (it hurt enough when someone wouldn't update a story anymore!!!) so, even if it's a little pretentious to assume that people like my shit, then whatever, i'm pretentious. if even one person said they liked my writing, which i did get from a lot of people when i actively wrote on tumblr circa 2012, then that's good enough for me.BUT! feel free to leave comments or favorites on any stories. i still do get the notifications in my email when i check it, so youre not going unheard, and you can know i see them and it will make a small part of my day better :) unless youre saying mean things in which case...i dont even have anything witty to say...thats how uncreative i am these days just...dont say mean things...why would you do that. anyway, always go ahead and leave a comment or even message me on here about writing/characters. i probably won't reply (unless you send some amazing meta commentary on something i wrote that makes me so happy i just HAVE to log in and discuss characterization with you), but it'll make my day. other than that, i'm out. but ill see it. if that makes you feel better, ill see it like ive seen these notifications for months, and feel just a little happy about it.
that's it. if you read all this, good for you. i mean, i don't have to apologize for writing a lot, since it's my profile and my space to fill with what i want, but thanks for indulging me.
it's been a wild ride...thank you for supporting me if you did, and if you didnt thats cool we've all got things to do...That's all folks!!!
