blows off dust

I am still alive, but now I float in acorporeal existence on the Internet.

Having faced some health issues, my life underwent a major self-evaluation. Today, I am proud to report that I am whole in body and mind. However, during the process of the soul-revamp, I discovered that some of my previous lifestyle choices were not beneficial and indeed harmful to me. As much as I enjoyed the fantasy, the time has come to leave Neverland and become a grown-up. Obsessions on series - anime in particular - and the process of obsessing in general had become second-nature, a way for me to hide away from the stresses and masochistic behaviors I tended to deviate to in the most depressing times. In my recovery, I discovered that I needed to face real-life and devote some of my creative talents to tangible pursuits, to give time for myself, and to learn how to balance. I look back on this period of my life, the period punctuated with these ferverent reveries of my fantasy worlds, with fond regard. The people in this community are rare gems - so full of love and support. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to discover within myself a talent that I knew I posessed, but never imagined could affect so many people. Thank you for your kind, and at times harsh words, but most importantly thank you for giving me a place to be me. For the first time in my life I had a place that required no mask, no facade. I just came with penname and MGs of .docs and I was accepted, enveloped, embraced.

But the time has come to move on. I have found other arms to hold me, other ways to navigate the life I have made for myself. The pressures from within are slowly but surely are releasing and I am for once experiencing true comfort within my own skin. I can only hope that everyone will feel this one day, or continue to feel it tomorrow.

I will keep all my stories up to entertain, jerk at the heartstring, and inspire those who are still feeling their way through life...however I do not plan on updating any time in the future, near or far.

Thank you again. I couldn't have made it this far without the people of FanFiction.Net.

Peace and Love to all,

~ Em (AKA Starhopper)
