GUESS WHAT YOU FUCKS. All of you are FANTASTIC WRITERS who I am honored to know and interact with. You are LOVELY AND TALENTED PEOPLE who all deserve a shot at doing what you love and if anyone tries to stop you or slow you down or make you feel like shit you need to PRESS ON. 

”!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!1!!!!!!!!!!!” is literally the feeling you get when reading a fanfic about your otp because you’re screaming a bit but also freaking the fuck out and wiggling about and maybe slapping your legs trying to calm down and it’s the most intense feeling but there aren’t any actual words to describe it


One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.
