Petted a doggo and a kitty I haven't seen since before winter today, and made a pretty girl laugh. Did anything good happen for you today?
Thank you for asking anon! I actually had a really good day and it wouldn’t have been possible without my friends. So let me take a minute to give them the spotlight they deserve.
This morning (well, afternoon) I woke up to see that @theysangastheyslew posted her Monday piece and did an absolutely fantastic job of capturing a touching moment between Mama!Hawk and Alphonse from a one-shot I wrote a couple weeks ago. I was definitely crying because I feel so blessed that my work inspired Elena’s incredible art.
i also saved it as my desktop picture
I got to talk to one of my best friends, @the-heart-alchemist, on the phone today and we basically hung out for a few hours and it was lovely! We watched last night’s episode of LWA together and screamed and it was amazing. It was several hours well-spent and I am blessed to have Robyn in my life.
My friend @controloverwritten wrote a little Royai drabble for me that ended with a VERY SNEAKY use of the Harder, Colonel meme and I’m still yelling about it like it was such a cute and sweet drabble and then SUDDENLY.
The radiant @jouissezduprintemps sent me cute gifs and kind words today, and I am still so floored by the fact that Leah takes time out of her day to think of me and send me positive vibes because she knows I’m having a tough time.
I finally got to hear @ladywiltshire‘s FMA voice tag and promo for her upcoming comic, which I have been given the illustrious honor of beta’ing, and I’m super stoked about it after listening to her talk about her characters with so much passion. Tanya is so lovely when she gets lost talking about things she cares about and it made me smile to hear so much heart and soul in her voice.
she also has a really nice voice wtf
I also got to talk to @queenxolivier today and she’s such a gem. There’s honestly never a dull moment talking to Jess. She is the reason why my phone autocorrects my keyboard smashes and I feel like that’s all you need to know about our friendship, haha.
Something that has me hollering is that the ridiculously incredible @wrongnote, upon discovering that she will be meeting All Time Low the day after my birthday, has resolved to try and get a video of them wishing me happy birthday. And I cannot believe how much of a fucking sweetheart Rilie is. She’s honest to god the purest person I’ve ever met like I cannot even describe. I’m so shook.
Also, my sweet and dear friend @toomuchfreetyme2 makes me smile just by existing and even though we didn’t get to talk much today she still kept up our long-standing tradition of her sending me little doodles, and it made my heart melt like it always does.
Anyways, today was a good day in spite of me being in a difficult slump the past few days. I feel leaps and bounds better than I was feeling just two days ago and I wouldn’t be able to say that if not for all of my amazing friends. I truly mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say that I love and cherish each and every one of you. Even if you didn’t play an active role in making my day better today, you are still so important to me and I value your presence in my life.
And thank you anon for giving me an opportunity to gush about my friends, because seeing it all laid out in one place helps remind me that I’m loved, even when I feel unlovable.
