First and foremost, I fully denounce what Watsuki’s done. I hope that he will receive the entirety of consequences, and that justice will be served on behalf of the victims. Their exploitation needed to be exposed, and if this leads to saving them, it’s ultimately the best thing that could happen.
To the fandom, this was shocking, upsetting, revolting news. And especially because we were at such a high point with the new arc, the upcoming Tumblr events, and the promise of a new movie. But despite this utter mess, I’m glad to see how we’re supporting each other. This fandom helped me out of a bleak period, and for as long as I live, I will never forget that. It’s hard enough to be betrayed by the creator, but it’s also hard to let go of this community that’s been built over the past years. So, for now, we can grieve together, and that’s what we need.
For the most part, I’ve made up my mind: I’m going to finish the fics I started. Not right away, I need some time, and I understand if people no longer want to support the work. However, my fics are also my creations, and this is something I need to do. As sickened as I am, I can’t deny my emotional connection to RK’s story and characters. Right now, I’m confused and anxious about the future. But through finishing my fics, I can take my time and find a way to heal and perhaps get closure. I won’t start anything new, just eventually bring everything to a proper, well-deserved end. And then, well, we’ll see.
To those of you who can no longer stay, I wish you all the best. To those of you who are still here or still trying to figure everything out, I’d love to talk, whether it’s about RK or other interests. I’ll be here, through whatever comes next.
