Well, time to take 2013 behind a shed and use a 9mm pill to put the old girl out of her misery.
*BANG!* Now for the dedications.

EVERYONE in WRITE and the Skype chat, whatever the fuck it's called now. You guys are my favorite partners in crime and ponies.
You guys in riff, even though I seldom show up nowadays.
Every single one of you, my 246 followers. At this time last year, I could not have envisioned being here. Thank you all so much. It would be impossible without you. Even though it might sound trite or robotic, it's not. I truly am grateful to all you guys who read, comment, fave, and vote on my stories. I could not be here without you.
And so, let's finish this with one of the most glorious sounds known to man.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
