I’ll be the first to admit my own shortcomings, so there is no header for this. It’s not very pretty, but it’s the best I can do.
Second: This is a thank you letter. To the writers, to the artists, to the gifmakers, to the ones who challenged the status quo, to the ones who have been here from the very beginning, to the ones who have contributed countless points since: thank you. For everything you have done and continue to do— thank you. You are the heart and soul of this fandom. Fandom does not exist without you. This is home to so many of us, myself included, and you have made it so. Thank you so much for existing and for putting your hearts on the line for this wonderful thing we call fandom.
On a more personal note: thank you for letting me be a part of your lives. I am grateful beyond words to know you, and you have all made me a happier truffles than I can possibly say. I admire you all, and I still love you so deeply. You are my world.
Without further adieu: I present my 2014 Follow Forever. Every person on this list has, in some direct way, changed my life. I am immeasurably thankful for it, and I hope you all have found friends among them, for they are among the very best.
