VLD Positivity (a day late)
All of your positivity yesterday was amazing and ever single time I was tagged I gave a ridiculous smile before getting back to work. I just want to let you all know I love you too <3
Here are a few of the people that make being here worth it:
@bosstoaster : Where do I even START. Your work on Ao3 developed every single one of my ships and headcanons before I even got onto tumblr. You alone are the reason I am here. You made me care about Voltron, gave my love for Shiro legs, and when it comes down to it, are the reason I started writing. Every single time we speak I have to fight the part of me that’s screaming because you’re kind of my fandom hero. Thank you for putting up with my absurd fangiriling, and thank you for being my mom through this hellsite, and you don’t know this, but your occasional mentions of your aromanticism helped me figure out my own shit, and I will be thanking you eternally <3
@butteredonions : Another one of those writers who has been formative in everything I do. Your updates are the only ones that have me yelling and stopping everything I’m doing in order to read. You sent in my first prompt ever and started all the everything I’m doing now, and I am utterly thankful for it. I was afraid to put my stuff out there and you told me to just do it, so I did, and man, you were so so right. One of my many moms. Thank you <3
@ashinan : Another person that accidentally became my mother when I once again had no idea how anything worked. You and the mom squad saved me from some dumb shit and I will be eternally thankful. I love your writing so much and I loved it even more when I got to reread it knowing the you, too, are as heavily influenced by the McElboys as I am. Your porn writing nights are always amazing and you should do more of them. Plz.
@velkynkarma : Okay. Dude. Hoo boy. I have never ever spoken to you but I just want to tell you how much your writing has changed how I look at everything. I remember going out with friends one night and Parasite Knight updated. I told them “okay I love you but I love this fic more, give me ten minutes to read” and then read it right there at the restaurant. I am absolutely amazed at the speed and accuracy with which you write and you were one of those people that fanfiction is more than just “fanfiction”; it’s literature in it’s own right.
@mumblefox : Another Think Tank member that I have never spoken to but admire from afar. Mumble, I admire you so much. Your Across, Around, and Upside Down series was so beautifully written and visceral, I’m still preparing myself to reread and give you all the comments and love that you deserve.
@paladin-pile : My dear, dear paladin. You. Yoooouuuuu. Your constant support and ego boosting keeps me writing. Every time I decide I hate all my writing you are the one that keeps me from throwing all of it off a cliff. Your headcanons become my headcanons, your prompts become my favorite fics, your ideas become my stories. I can not articulate how much you mean to me, but you know. <3
@melonbugg : MELON. MY LOVE MY HEART MY SOUL. Your time in Shanghai killed me, I have no idea who Myth is without Melon. Our writing together is such a core reason that I’ve made somuch in such a short time. My eternal beta, my co-mod in everything, you know how much you mean to me <3
@paladinpuppypile : I think you’re my first fandom mom. You’re just so great to talk to and I am so glad I randomly messaged you months ago. You might be one of the few people on this site that I actually talk to about life, and I love hearing about yours. You’re so much fun to work with and our conversations constantly inspire me to keep writing.
@ace-pidge : Can we just talk about how you run the quiznak chronicle and it is absolutely the greatest thing and best organized thing in the whole world? You are an ABSOLUTE BLESSING and I’m fairly sure that the entire fandom would crumble without you, not to mention that your blog is probably the safest space on this site. Thank you <3
@gitwrecked : You. Your art, your personality, how you’re always happy to talk to lil’ old me. You were one of my first followers, from before I even started writing, and I have no idea how you found me, but I want you to know that I am to this day confused as to why you took notice and why you are just such a damn good person.
@headspacedad : I think you were among the first people I followed and I will never forget that day of bothering BT all day to write Days of Gladiator Love, of probably mutually giggling behind computer screens as we made shitty names and bad ideas for Shiro’s romance novel, and you’ve been so supportive every day since.
@sassafrassrex : WHEN YOU TAGGED ME YESTERDAY I YELLED. YOU. LIKE MY WRITING? WILL YOU BE MY FRIEND???? I LOVE YOU AND THE PURCHASED, TRADED , WAGERED, WON WRECKED MY ENTIRE SOUL. Plz be my friend.
@demenior : Hurting my heart with that good good porn and good good everything since 2kAlways.
@itbespacegays : Sam, my love. Your AMVs slay me every single time and I absolutely adore our conversation at 3am when no one else is awake. Night owls FTW.
@anira8884 : YOU MADE ART FOR ME AND I STILL YELL ABOUT IT THANK YOU SO MUCH
@mishion : We just started talking, like, yesterday, but your art. Your ART. HOW. I send it to everyone I know all the time, sometimes just so I can stare at it some more. I have one of your pieces as my phone background and then I find out you’re actually an amazing pleasant person? What? Not fair.
@xandriella : I can’t even. You know. Babe, i basically live with you and we have a shared social calendar. You know.
I know there’s bound to be someone I forgot, but know that I love you all. Thank you <3
