Thank You <3
Bit of a long post, but I just have to say this now, so bear with me for a second.
I was looking at the notes for each individual chapter of my Antisepticeye fanfiction series “Glitched”, noticing how many likes and reblogs each has gotten, and reading through the comments. And I’m crying, I’m actually tearing up right now (it’s happy tears, don’t worry!).
I have always been insecure about my writing - I VERY rarely ever share any of my stories with anyone. My artwork, yes, but never my writing. And for the last year or so now, I haven’t had any motivation to write whatsoever. It’s been absolute torture. And then the Anti hype started, I came up with a theory, and instantly, inspiration hit me like an oncoming truck! I had a great urge to actually write a fanfic - something I had never even ONCE thought about doing in my life. However, I was very hesitant about doing so, given how it would deal with an actual existing person. I was afraid if I wrote it and then posted it, maybe it wouldn’t be good - maybe no one would like it. But hell, the urge grew so I wrote what became “Broken”, the first part to the fanfic. I posted it at 3AM and before I went to bed, I had received 3-4 notes already. I didn’t think much of it - I figured I wouldn’t get more than 5, 10 if I was lucky. And yet, to my surprise, the very next morning, my notifications were going off like mad, showing I had gotten well over 80 notes already! Everyone was liking it and reblogging it, leaving such nice comments and reactions. I was floored.
“Broken” was originally meant to be just a oneshot - it wasn’t going to evolve into a series. But because of your guys’ responses - your reactions and comments - I instantly felt an overwhelming wave of motivation to go and write a sequel. And then that got well received, so I wrote a third installment. And then you guys wanted more, and at that point, I figured “Fuck it! Let’s see how far down this rabbit hole I can go!” and thus, “Glitched” became a full-fledged series.
Where I’m going with this is that all of you guys - whether you’ve just leaved likes, you’ve been around for each part and want more, you’ve been leaving awesome comments, or you’ve only read one part - you have all made this possible. You guys are the reason I’m still writing, why I’ve been feeling so much motivation lately, why I’ve been so overjoyed and giddy while writing because I know someone out there actually loves my work and can’t wait to read more (Fuck, I’m crying again!).
It means the WORLD to me seeing every like, reblog, and/or comment my work gets, and I’m so thankful to every single one of you, truly I am. You guys make my day. I will continue to build onto the story and hopefully, you guys will all love it :)
Slight note: It’s 1:55 A.M. and I’ve been busting my ass off on Part 5 for the last 5 and a half hours now, so I’m going to go to bed. It’s coming out rather long, so I’m probably going to actually split it into two parts, in which case the Schneeple chapter I’d been planning to do - which was originally going to be Part 6 - will now have to be Part 7. Just letting you all know! I’m hoping to get Part 5 done tomorrow so I can upload it tomorrow night, if not tomorrow night then Wednesday for sure.
Once again, thank you guys so much for supporting me and my writing! I love you all!
