An intro to me. I'm Tei. I never thought my life would end up down this road.
I have read fanfics since the early age of thirteen, reading ones marked mature audiences only and having no problem with the sexual content of stories due to some unforeseen circumstances in my early childhood. But after I finished junior high, I stopped reading them all together - even the fluffy ones. I became obsessed with other anime and video games and school and a certain online community took over most of my life. When in high school, I discovered I loved writing and started writing my first fanfiction, of which I will never ever post - it's too embarrassing. But I did write some original stories too such as Forest Blood and Gears. After I graduated in 2009, life was hectic and I lost myself for a while, becoming diagnosed with a very serious mental illness that can't be cured. As I focused on the monotony of life, I lost my passion for almost everything. I even went through a period of time where I didn't watch TV or listen to music for about five months, just getting up, going to work, going to sleep, and doing it all over again.
Then, one day I stumbled upon an older cartoon series I used to watch when I was younger on my Netflix, the only source of television we had in our house because cable costs way too much. I had never gotten to finish Avatar: The Last Airbender on TV and so I dived right in, falling in love with episode one. Two weeks later I finished the series and I felt a hole in my heart form. I realized I had passion again. And that passion was giving me a burning desire for more of this universe. That's when I found all 12 episodes of The Legend of Korra online. Again, I went through it very quickly, falling in love.
Then the wait came. The 15 month wait between Book 1 Air and Book 2 Spirits. I started to grasp at straws and picked up my old habit; reading fanfiction. With every one I read, it fueled me inside but it never satisfied me. It was just enough to keep me from going out of my mind. I started to listen to music, watch movies, go out of the house, actually be happy again, and I felt I had a fighting chance with my illness. It's wasn't a battle I was going to lose anymore. Finally just reading wasn't enough. I started to dream about it. And then the unthinkable happened. I wrote something. It was my baptismal moment; posting my first fanfiction for this fandom. Ever since then I have blossomed and become a much better author, learning how to convey thoughts better.
When Korra ended, there was another hole left in me. I was disappointed and worst, I was lost. From December 2014 to March 2015 I was just kind of existing, trying to apply my passion for Avatar and Korra... but with a toxic fandom, that flame was quickly dying. Many people whom I follow on tumblr were always posting about this cartoon that they said was absolutely amazing. They said even better than Korra and I scoffed. 'Yeah right.' But They just kept posting and posting until I said I had had enough and I would try it. After three episode of Steven Universe I was absolutely hooked and I got my family addicted too.
So to recap; Avatar started me back up, Korra pushed me further, and Steven keeps me going. I will never stop writing. I will never admit defeat. And I will never go back to where I was.
