500 · 6:31am
Holy cow, you guys are awesome. I mean... wow. Just... wow.
Five hundred individuals read something of mine and said to themselves "Hey, this guy might be worth keeping an eye on" before hitting that button next to my name. Five. Hundred. People.
Additionally, sometime in the last week Mission: Implausible got its 500th thumbs up, making it my first story to do so!
I feel the need to mark the occasion somehow! I mean... 500 is a big number. A really big number! There aren't even 500 countries in the world. Or 500 days in a year.
500 years ago was the first time a European was definitely known to have sighted what would become the United States of America.
Only twenty-five people in the history of major league baseball have hit more than 500 home runs.
If you took each of my 500 followers and laid them end-to-end you would get... um... a really long line of people! More importantly, it would beg the question, why the heck are all my followers laying down end-to-end?
Hell, 500 dollars is still larger than the single biggest paycheck I've made (which isn't saying much, since I'm still in school, but still...)!
This is special. So how should I mark this occasion? Well, how about I give you an oh-so rare glimpse at my actual face?
Well, at least what you can see of my face underneath my long hair and my silly attempt at celebrating the occasion.
So thank you all for your interest, your readership, your proofreading requests, your faves, your comments, your awesomeness, and your love. You make every day in this fandom fantastic and an absolute joy for me.
