    After a lot of time and thought, I'm going to be moving my account back to IceOfWaterflock. Hopefully, I'll be able to transfer this username over as well, but the current version of I Wasn't Prepared for This will definitely be transferred, and continue being written there.
    EDIT: You can follow my work here.

After a lot of time and thought, I'm going to be moving my account back to IceOfWaterflock. Hopefully, I'll be able to transfer this username over as well, but the current version of I Wasn't Prepared for This will definitely be transferred, and continue being written there.
EDIT: You can follow my work here.

I'm sure those of you who knew I changed accounts to begin with are probably a bit confused, and maybe those who had no idea are even more confused, but to cut a long story short my old account had ties with another person in the fandom who took advantage of me when I was much younger than he was. To this day I dread what would have happened between us had chance not caused something completely unrelated to drive me away from him.

And so I made this account to continue writing, away from that hurt and those memories. And it worked great! I managed to start writing again, and made new friends who loved the show, and over time realized how much all of those older stories and all of those older characters meant to me. Looking back, were a lot of them not very good, self-inserts, or overpowered? Were my stories cluttered, nonsensical, and written in a matter of days or weeks with plots to match? Yes. But I wrote them, and they introduced me to a world where I could write, and have other people see my work and enjoy it, and only with time to work through the problems that the past has given me have I been able to put the good of what that account gave me above the bad.

I want to love my old creations, and my younger self, again. I made mistakes, and crap happens, but at the end of the day those years are still a dear part of me, and shoving them aside to a dark corner because of what went wrong later is only making me feel worse.

So, short version, I'm moving my account back. If those of you who follow me here would like to follow IceOfWaterflock in advance, that's where I'll be. Do note the ancient user number, I'm very proud of it.

Thank you all so much, and sorry for all of the trouble. Hopefully moving back means I'll write faster, or at least have enough stories going that it feels faster.
