    Birthday in two days

    Parents: "So we decided that it's fine this year if you don't want presents on your birthday, we can always postpone that for six months and do it this summer."

    Me: (planning on having a busy summer and hoping to do a traditional birthday this year, but realizing that the fact they're even proposing it means they don't have any presents:)

    "Uh...Sure, okay, sounds great."

    A Christmas Carol: a Live Reading

    This is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, for the record.

    So you may have noticed a couple of things:

    1. 'Tis the season
    2. I like listening to myself ramble.

    JINGLEMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS 2021!!!

    Yeah, I know, I'm like a week late with this announcement. I'm aware that I've been getting more and more scarce on here, but that doesn't mean that I'm not interested in some Fimfic events from time to time - and this is certainly, certainly no exception.

    I was in a strange mood yesterday, forgive me for that.

    Still don't know what I really want to do with my writing anymore. Still struggling.

    Sorry about this, y'all.

About that birthday... · 3:00pm January 10th

There were so many things that I wasn't expecting. So many wonderful, amazing things.

And none of them would have happened if it wasn't for you guys.

As my last blog post implied, I really wasn't expecting anything. You guys didn't need to go out of your way to send me your happy birthday wishes, including those of you I haven't talked to in months. Two - two! of you guys didn't need to draw pictures for me, gratis. You didn't need to review one of my stories! And spending time with me, hanging out with me - none of you needed to do that at all.

And yet you did. You just...did, by yourselves. And I'm not quite sure if how I could articulate a response to that could accurately capture my feelings.

Because it wasn't just that I felt appreciated, or validated, or what have you. It's that you guys made me feel like I was someone you were happy to know - someone you went well out of your respective ways for to make me feel happy. It felt like I meant that much to you, and I definitely feel like the words I'm trying to use there aren't fully capturing what that means for me.

And I think, more than anything else, you made me feel like this was the sort of place I belonged. The community, the writing, the friends, all of it - you made me feel like I wasn't just an outsider looking in, but actually one of you. Like me being here isn't a mistake or a fluke, but...well, a natural part of fimfic and all the folks who use it.

I'm here. I belong here, and I will in the future. This is the right place for me to be. And feeling that, internalizing it...I feel a little at peace now. Like, whatever else I've done with my life, being here was absolutely, positively the right thing to do. The best possible place I could be.

Thank you, guys. Thank you for this, all of it. I'm happy beyond words. :heart:

That was one of the two that was drawn as a gift for me, yes. :pinkiehappy:

May I ask who the artist is?

I'm so glad you've had a happy hatchday. Fimfiction is often not the friendliest of places, but there are plenty of good friends to be had here.

A guy called Cyonix. Very reasonable prices, especially for the quality of drawings that he puts out.

Here's a link if you're tempted to commission something!

And yes, there are tons of good eggs on fimfiction. Very thankful of how many i've decided to befriend and gotten to know.
