three years. good grief. when I first started this blog in 2014, I hadn’t even started university, let alone graduated from it, potc5 hadn’t even begun production, let alone been released in cinemas (
and I’m still not convinced that it wasn’t some weird fever dream ). I certainly never imagined that I would still be here, writing a character that I first fell in love with in 2006 and who still hasn’t given me my heart back eleven years later, and still just as passionate about him as I was when I first started ( and even before, back when I used to write him rather terribly in fanfic lmfao ). so I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has written with or talked to me on this blog over the past three years. I would not still be here if it wasn’t for my writing partners, or so many people’s beautiful messages of encouragement – and here’s to the next three years, eh?
the first mates
aka The Ride or Die Squad. each of you listed here has made a difference in my time writing here, whether it’s through putting up with my feels trips and attempts at humour, both on the dash or on skype, writing and plotting beautiful things with me, or being dear friends of mine that I wouldn’t trade for the world. you are all amazing writers & have such a beautiful understanding of your muses, and it’s honestly a privilege to have the chance to talk and write with you all <3
