I don’t usually make posts like this unless I’m drunk and yet here I am, stone-cold sober on a Thursday night wanting to tell you all how amazing I think you are.
I’ve been in a variety of fandoms in my 20 years online and I’ve been writing fic and obsessing over my favourites shows for a long as I can remember. I can safely say that in the last ten years, no fandom has ever been as kind and welcoming and fun as this one.
I know we’re going through a really crappy time right now. I know we seem to be fracturing more every day and the thing that gave us the most joy five months ago is making a lot of us sad.
But I think it’s important to remember why we’re all here in this crazy little fandom for this stupid Yorkshire soap and these ridiculous messed up boys. Whether you think the plot is great or not, whether Robert and Aaron get back together in a month or a year or ten years when Ryan and Danny have both left and come back, whether you’ve been here two years or two minutes, we’re all here because we’re passionate about it and them and each other.
And I for one am really glad I found you all.
