I’ve gained so much. I’ve rediscovered my passion for art, made loads of friends and I’ve laughed. A lot. So hard at times I’ve cried. I’ve learned so much about shows and movies and songs and comic books that I’d never have either thought of either wise. TGWTG is special, the fandom is amazing and I’m so glad I get to be a part of it. Thank you all.
Through good times and bad, the friendships that I’ve made with other TGWTG fans will last a long time. I call a few of these people family now and don’t imagine my life without them. I’ve broadened my tastes in music, games, books and movies because of the impact that the producers have made in their videos. Thank you.
I’ve only been active in this fandom for a short while, but I’ve been watching TGWTG videos for a few years now. The site has a whole has cheered me up on even my roughest days, changed how I look at media (for good and for ill) and even introduced me to things I’ve never even would have considered. It’s also helped me get over a huge creative slump I’ve had for a long time. Both fellow fans and the encouraging words of various producers has helped me through some hard times. Thank you all. And keep doing what you’re doing!
Why am I thankful for TGWTG? My answer is two-fold, I am thankful that watching them gave me the inspiration to make my own review show, which is something I wholly enjoy, and am so happy that I started it. And the second answer, is that I’ve met so many wonderful people throughout my tenure as a member of the fandom, besides for the other fantastic mods here at TGWTG Secrets, I’ve met a number of people that I have similar interests with that I wouldn’t have met otherwise. I am in debt to TGWTG for giving me so much. Thanks, TGWTG, my life wouldn’t be the same without you.

The TGWTG fandom has always been an interesting one for me. It always seems that no matter how much clashing there is, there is always something to enjoy out of the reviews. TGWTG itself motivates me that maybe someday, I’ll be able to create something everyone can enjoy. My own perspective shifts to others, seeing them get inspired and want to create something. I see people creating more from things that have failed, and turn them into something great. Let us continue, guys.
I am thankful for TGWTG because it has introduced me to wonderful new things, and amazing new people. Specifically I am thankful for the time and bonding it has given me with my best friend, Error. Because of TGTWTG, this blog exists and I have experienced many new things. I've never been a mod before, or even done that much online. These new things, people, and experiences are something I will always be grateful for.
TGWTG has given me something to share with my friends and expanded my interests. They have shown me to never stop dreaming. That it’s OK to hang onto what made your childhood special because sometimes it is those things that can lead towards new relationships and pursuits. Thank you TGWTG for giving us hours of entertaining videos and showing us your own passions.
For a time, I’ve been an avid watcher of Atop The Fourth Wall, ever since it first aired on TGWTG, mainly as something to watch and kill time. After a while (circa early 2013) I began to ponder what I’m getting out of watching this and the other shows. The times I laughed out loud when watching an episode happened once in a blue moon to my recollection. Recently, I’ve hit a period where I’ve become too busy to even sit down and watch an episode of Atop The Fourth Wall (for those curious, this period began the week the recent Sci Spy review was released). That question I wondered appeared. “What am I getting out Atop The Fourth Wall?”
A couple of weeks after I’ve hit the period, I’ve thought of writing a fanfiction, and to make a long story short, I decided I wasn’t going to pull any “suddenly a named character gets killed” stunts. I wondered why that is. Then I recalled something.
Seems the whole time I was watching the show, I’ve been subconsciously absorbing the advice Linkara gave for good writing. And that is why I am thankful for Atop The Fourth Wall, because it helped me become better as a writer.

Day 1: Cool Weather - What are your favorite nations doing now that the weather’s gotten cold? Are they enjoying a warm drink? Breaking out the comfy sweaters? Cuddling up in front of the fireplace?
Day 2: Changing Leaves - Do any of the nations like jumping in leaf piles? What about making leaf art or going on long walks in the woods?
Day 3: Fall Harvest - Have you ever been on a hayride or solved a corn maze? What about making caramel apples? Cornucopias? What kinds of vegetables does each nation harvest?
Day 4: Fall Goodies - Cookies, pies, soups…what foods are the nations excited for?
Day 5: Family - Are any of the nations getting together with loved ones? Maybe spending a crisp evening with a significant other?
