Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated in the US where we (nominally) give thanks for all the things we’ve got that we probably don’t deserve, and (actually) slaughter birbs for noms.
I’ll be digging in to my own nombirb later today. But I need to gush for a minute.
Because you guys (and gals, and nonbirany pals) are fucking great. You’re super-smart. You’re funny as hell. You follow this blog when you don’t have to and you wait so patiently for answers to questions when I can’t possibly get to all of them.
You’ve shown me tremendous amounts of love and kindness and support over the past 13 months. There are many of you I genuinely call my friends, and my family.
I’ve even gone so far as to meet one of you in person across the miles of the Netiverse (and your stupendously fluffy service dog).
Speaking of! We helped save this goober:
…when he and his buddy Darian got into some serious trouble over a bottle of liver-flavored pills. (They’re both doing great, and Bucky is even floofier than he is in his pictures!)
We built a community. A family of blogs who’ve held together through thick and thin (and a little bit of drama). It hasn’t worked out with everyone, but the vast majority have been amazing.
And my incredibly generous Patrons are even putting me through a fellowship.
Because of all of you I’ve become something I never actually thought I would be able to say about myself: I’m a Published Freaking Author.
The last thirteen months have been absolutely surreal. There are fourteen thousand of you out there. My freaking website got a thousand users last month somehow (?!?!?).
Anyway: I wanted to say thank you. That you matter to me. That I cherish your time and your trust and your willingness to let me nerd out about my profession all over the Internet.
I don’t know what the next year holds – who does? But I know that my world is better because of all of you.
With all the love and wishes for a good Thanksgiving and falliday season,
(to those who celebrate it!!)
I love Thanksgiving very much, both because it’s a day all about being thankful for what we have and because it’s a day where you get to eat a ton of delicious food.
And like…all of it is comfort food, which is my jam.
I’m incredibly thankful for the 1,300+ of you out there who came to see my ridiculous posts every day.
Thank you for stopping by and deciding to stay, and I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day today, Thanksgiving or not!!✨✨
Wanted to give a little shoutout to some of my favorite people, I’m still going to post my ‘follow forever’ list at the end of the year but these people are extra special to me.
*Jimmy Fallon voice* THANK YOU
@frozeninfire - William, 2 years ago you came to me with the idea of starting a network and because of that we got super close and I’m so happy! Thanks for the occasional slumber parties, even though we haven’t played two truths and a lie in awhile, I’m still winning 79-42 (let’s pretend that was the score :) ) When I come to visit someday we’re going to have an irl slumber party okay? okay.
@ponderation - Sara!!! you’re my long lost blonde twin! We’ve known eachother for so long and practically ‘grew up’ together on here. Even though we never talked much we kinda just skipped the small talk and went on venting to eachother and I love it. You’re one of the sweetest people I’ve never met <3
@noizzex - Alexa, my side hoe, my little lady, thanks for sending me all of the memes! All of the inappropriate jokes, the dumb vines, the videos of your cat that is always asleep or destroying things. You’re one of my only friends on here that’s brave enough to get through american horror story without wanting to turn it off after the first 30 seconds and for that you deserve an award. To be honest, I’m not even sure how we became friends, I don’t remember ever having that first conversation, we just went straight to sending memes and I think we’ve built a solid friendship from it.
@de-preciated / @henrybakerartwork - Henry! I’ve known you for forever now, and though we don’t talk as much, I appreciate all of our random silly chats and our mini bonding moments over ed sheeran. It’s nice to find another person who’s shy and introverted and all that, we get eachother.. and it’s nice. I’ve watched your little art journey on here since the beginning and I’m amazed at the progress you’ve made. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pieces with us. I’m super happy to own some of your prints. I wish you all the success with your art <3
@love-abia - Abi, though you’re no longer active on here I hope you’ll still get a notification for this. You’ve always been like an older sister to me and I can’t thank you enough for that, you’re the older sister I never had. Thank you for listening to my endless stories (you’re still gonna turn them into a book and publish it and make millions off it right?) and for recommending me books (about alien porn). I miss you and your moon photos, I hope you come back to tumblr soon!
@te5seract - Isaac, where do I start.. we only became friends less than 2 years ago but it feels like I’ve known you a lifetime. You have no idea how much it means to me that you took the time to teach me how to code, that you didn’t let me give up when I felt like pulling my hair out, you’re so patient with me and I’m so very grateful for that. I’m very lost in the world when it comes to finding things I enjoy, and for you to find something that sparks my interest, that’s something I’ll cherish forever. Thank you for keeping me sane when I come to you panicking because webmd says the spot on my arm means i’m dying of brain cancer and for keeping me company when I can’t sleep at 3am because I watched a scary movie. I have so much more to say but I’ll keep this short and sweet. Who knew that a simple get to know you tag post would lead to such a great friendship? I hope we meet someday. <3
@novice-at-play - Angie, I’m convinced that you are my long lost mom. You’re the coolest internet mama could ever ask for, I hope you chose to adopt me into your family someday, if not I’m adopting you into mine. I love that you’re not afraid to laugh at inappropriate sexual jokes and poop jokes. The stories you share with me, the way you word them always makes me laugh and it brightens my day
@dennybitte - Denny, you’re extremely humble and have probably sent me a very sweet message after every photo I’ve ever reblogged for the past.. 2 or 3 years, that’s dedication! Thank you for putting up with all of my photo editing questions and helping me decide on which photos to post after I send you 38924238492 different choices. And thank you for all of the scary movie recommendations! It’s always lovely to have new movies to look forward to!
@landscapeexposurenetwork- Thank you to all of the members and followers for keeping this page running! Two years ago it was just an idea William came to me with and I’m amazed at how well it’s been doing and how many of you are dedicated to supporting photographers.
On a serious note, words can’t describe how thankful I am for 1D. They’ve been my safety and my hiding place for going on 5 years now; the friends I’ve made here have been there for me when I felt alone, or when I just needed to vent, or celebrate/yell about the boys with people who understand the love and excitement I feel for them. These years have been wild within the fandom and also IRL, but I love this place, and these boys, and every single one of you very very much :(
I know that there’s a lot going on these days, and that this year has been a helluva trip, but honestly? I’m still thankful that y’all are still here, that you’ve followed me, and that you’re peeps that have impacted and influenced me in the best ways possible. I just wish I could give each and every one of you a big hug! This includes everyone who doesn’t live in the usa and doesn’t celebrate thanksgiving too, lol! I love you lots, guys!
So if it wasn’t obvious enough from the gifs, I am
definitely Moa.na in this situation and all of you lovely people are her
parents because honestly that is how I feel and what this moment means to me
entirely. And just the thought of how emotional all of this makes me? Am I even
making sense? Who knows but let’s get the ball rolling here.
I wanna start this off by wishing one of the most fantastic movies in my life a happy ONE YEAR anniversary. It’s wild to realize that a year ago from this day, this
movie came out, my daughter appeared on the big screen, and I just fell I love
once again with Dis.ney magic. Of course, the day before the movie came out, I
made this blog. I’ll keep the story short but I was super excited for this
movie, super excited to be writing as Moa.na, and now here I am. Still here, still
crying over this kid. And let me just say that it has been… It’s been such an
incredible year. Not without its shortcomings or hardships, and believe me most
of this year tried to beat the crap out of me, but I’ve made it. I haven’t been
on a muse without randomly disappearing since I first started four years ago,
and that just means a lot to me when it comes to her. Because believe me I never thought I’d get this far.
I never expected many of the things to happen on this blog
to well, happen on this blog. From all the friendships made and lost, to all
the crazy shenanigans and just so much more. It’s something that I won’t take
for granted and won’t forget either. And all the followers? I’m just simply
blown away all the time. The last time I made a bias list was six months ago
and I had hit past 450 (but focused on the 420 bit because I’m your local meme
queen). And now I’m past 820 and just. Wow.
It really means a lot to have all of you around, like truly it does.
I’m doing my best to tone down the sappiness levels because
I could go on and on about how grateful I am to all of you, and since it’s also
Thanksgiving, it seems even more appropriate for me to just give my continued
But I’m going to cut my Oscar speech here to just let you
all know how much you all mean to me. Every single one of you are amazing and
bring such lights to my dash. Thank you for sticking around this blog. Whether
you’ve been here since around the beginning or a newcomer. Thank you for giving
me and my version of Moa a chance.
And Moa.na, although you are a fictional character, thank
you for helping me find out who I truly
am. Or at least, continue figuring out that part of me.
I just wanted to express how thankful I am for being in such a kind, loving fandom and although I’ve only been here for a couple months, I’ve made so many amazing friends and mutuals. You guys really are the best. It’s made me so happy and I’m always excited to see you all on my dash. I love you all, thank you for everything! I’m gonna go cry now

To my online family, I hope you had(or will have) I wonderful thanksgiving, and that you are surrounded by people who care about you.
Even if that’s not the truth in the real world, you still have your online friends. And we care about you, and off you a virtual meal of meme chats, fanfictions, fanart, and all the funny cat videos one could possible ask for.
I’m grateful to all of you who have made me feel so welcomed over the past year, and I hope to be able to spend many more holidays with you all. <3

(idk if I should put that like I wrote it so I’ll just…I’m @hallo-wen-junhui)
You woke up to your boyfriend peppering your face in kisses and smiling down at you.
“Yeollie…” you groaned, sitting up and stretching.
“Happy birthday, love~” he cooed as he pulled you into his arms. “I made you breakfast! Come eat.” He pulled you into the kitchen, where you saw the food he’d made and presents on the counters.
“Did you really make all of this for me?” You didn’t think he would do this much…he was treating you like a queen. Not that you were complaining. He nodded happily and watched for your reaction. “Yeol, you didn’t have to…”
“Its your birthday, and I wanted to make you feel special…do you not like it?” He pouted.
“No, no, I love it! Let’s eat, yeah?” You smiled and grabbed a plate of food, sitting down next to him at the table. You didn’t talk much, more focused on the food. When you were done he walked back into the kitchen and returned with a large pink bag and a smaller blue one.
“Open the pink one first.” When you saw the contents of the bag, you couldn’t keep yourself from smiling. There was a dress you had talked about wanting for a long time, but you couldn’t buy it as it costed too much. He stopped you before you could thank him and handed you the other bag. You opened it and saw a small box, and you had a look of confusion plastered on your face, and he took the box from you.
“V, I love you…I love you so much and…I want to spend the rest of my life with you.” He opened the box, and you saw the ring. It was absolutely beautiful.
“Oh my god…” you whispered, covering your mouth as you tried to stop yourself from tearing up. “Yes, yes, I love you too, Chanyeol.” It seemed like a simple statement, but he understood and had the brightest, purest smile you’d ever seen, sliding the ring onto your finger and held you in his arm while whispering sweet things in your ear.
“Thank you…now we just need to tell the others” He laughed into your hair. This was, by far, the best birthday you’d ever had.
(SORRY FOR ANY TYPOS HOPE YOU LIKE IT)
“Look into my eyes
and do understand
Remember that all shall pass
and night shall come
Your birth-right I offer
It’s there if you want it
And nowhere will go
Heavy to carry
don’t take too much to bear”
