I’ve gained over 100 followers in a day and also have an absurd amount of messages in my inbox (mostly in relation to weight loss and tattoos), thanks to the post in beforeandafterfatlosspics. Thank you all SO MUCH for finding me and for taking the time to send me your kind words and questions. My inbox has gotten kind of out of control lately, so I will do my best to answer all of your questions as quickly as I can. I am also following over 1,000 people right now, so I look through the blogs that follow me and follow back anyone who is also on a healthy weight loss journey. This process could take me a couple of days or weeks (I just started school again so between that and working out, I am pretty busy), but I promise I will look through all of your blogs and answer your messages! I appreciate it so much!!
So, those in the know (See also: No one) understand that I am emotionally compromised beyond repair at the moment. In a fit of reading, madly pacing my kitchen while contemplating and theorizing and dreaming, and then reading some more, I managed to finish Good Omens. (Which is half of why I haven’t been blogging. The other half being my recently acquired job. Maybe I’ll make a post about it, but probably not.)
I can’t honestly say I’ve known such fanatic glee in any other fandom besides Supernatural. I can not express my love for Crowley and Aziraphale. I can not properly even understand it. But Gaiman and Pratchett are wonderful and the book was perfect. I believe it to be perfect because there wasn’t the smallest of details I would alter in fantasy. I adore it as it happened and I could never accept any other series of events.
Naturally, first thing I do is start up on fanfiction because that’s what I do. I grow closer to the characters through other people’s closeness to the characters.
And I read And So We’ve Come Full Circle. Something I would like to point out is that there is a very clear and established line between myself and fiction. While I love it, I also see it as paltry (everything’s paltry, but existentialism doesn’t mean I shouldn’t enjoy it, dammit). So, I’m emotionally detached from stories and the stories of stories. I know glee and I know a very superficial despair. But this piece of fanfiction was entirely unique. I can not recall any occasion where I found myself sobbing. Silent tears I try to reserve for public displays of misery (and I usually fail), certainly. But I was violently, horribly sobbing. The emotion this fanfiction created in me was a physical sensation.
God, I love it.
Kaytara-art is A Magician Of Questionable Intent and I’m still going through the series. (I’m already in love with Gliss and Azariel. Maybe kaytara-art is really a lower-class god because I hardly bother with original characters and, as a general rule, fic without smut.)
I’m so impressed already with this fandom, and I’ve been in it barely a day. I can’t wait to see what else you lot have to offer. I think I’m going to stay clear of Fifty Scales of Crowley, though. I try to ignore 50SoG and it’s variations as much as possible unless I’m retelling my favourite quote about the mother hamster.
- #good omens
- #and so we come full circle
- #i'd like to personally thank neil gaiman terry pratchett and the fandom for existing
- #fifty scales of crowley
- #i dunno if that last one is necessarily relevant but i hope anyone who bothers reading through gets a good kick out of it
- #i'd also like to point out that my written homework is very british now
So since I’ve gained a few new followers recently I figure I should introduce myself, so here’s a post doing just that.
My name is Ashley, and I have lots of feels about lots of different things. I blog mostly about anime and video games, and occasionally I draw stuff (I’m literally always taking requests, by the way). C:
Also, if you are ever in need of someone to talk to, I am here for you and more than happy to lend a hand (or at least try to help) with whatever problems you may have. Or I’m happy just talking about fandoms and such with you. Y’know, whatever floats your boat.
So there it is. I try to post things often, and usually it’s just whatever I feel like posting, but I hope you all enjoy/are enjoying my blog. :D
For my lovely new followers-
Hello! Welcome! I’m so glad that you stopped by and found me good enough to keep on your dashboards. Thank you all so, SO much.
To start off, I’m Autumn. I’m 27 years old and I live in New England with my fiance. I really don’t have a dedicated theme or purpose for my tumblr. I started it mainly as a way to interact with fandom, and it now has become a catch-all for all types of things that I find interesting/noteworthy/amusing, both in fandom and in the real world. I’m going to try and be better about tagging in the future, in case you’d like to Tumblr Savior my bouts of fandom squee.
If you have any questions, comments, critiques, or opinions you’d like to share, please feel free to send me asks and/or submissions! I love meeting new people, and I’d very much like to get to know all of you as well. Know why?
