So. A love letter to fandom. Here goes.

Dear fandom,

And it is all fandom, in general. I mean, from the first dirty stories I started reading, which led me to find X-Men slash fanfic, which led me to try Harry/Draco slash fanfic, which led me to Lightning on the Wave -

Which seriously led me to see that fanfic is, is more than just dirty stories. It isn't something hidden underneath the covers and shameful. I mean, I'm still not going to go crowing to the rooftops I write soft (and hard) core porn - but that there was something more there. It led me to practice my writing, and it improved my creative writing. It helped me better my ideas, hone my plots. The stories I read became a part of me, and I loved it. They taught me more and more about the wider world, and it led me to tumblr, which opened many more doors for me. Became a lot more knowledgeable. A lot more understanding. A lot more aware.

So thank you, fandom. Thank you for all that you've done for me, and for making me a better person, and for giving me my greatest escape. Thank you for introducing me to many different genres, to different plots. For introducing me to many different and amazing and interesting people. Thank you.
