THANK Y'ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THNEED INCORPORATED!!!
I’ve come a long way in 2 years, and I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank @didney-worl-no-uta who actually reminded me to open my askbox. My pet butterfly @anotherler for sending me my very FIRST ask and @plutonis for my very first gift. @thesocialpariah and @detriex for being one of my first friends on here, and a HUGE shout out to my biggest support, my best friend, my dear dear @dizylizy
And of course, my first ever Once-Ler Somepies @bedtime-onceler my science buddies and associates Dr Nefario @scientifique and Dr. @jamescaverly, one of the coolest kids I know Antonio Perez @deviiouslycharming my interesting old friend and twin @nut-ler, and my old Teds @ted–wiggins and @nevler. Y'all have always been there for me and it warms my heart to have talked to y'all and become great chums 8D
Honorable mention to @ask-the-2012-onceler. He’s some kind of snail activist and his Milkshakes bring all the Lers to the yard but I don’t really get him. What kinda Once-Ler LIKES TOMATOES?
But all this was possible thanks to one of the the greatest Ler of our times @minionler.
All of the new friendships I have today are SOLELY thanks to him. He showed up on the scene with his corn kernels in goggles and awoke our sleeping fandom with a storm of bananas and incredible artwork. I owe him a lot, for bringing out the best in me, and taking the time to find out things about me that others tend to overlook, to call me out on my foolhardiness, and remind me that
“It’s not what I Am, but what I can Become”
And a big thank you to everyone who has ever supported me, liked my posts or even glanced my way. I WISH I could name all of you, and you’re all amazing people for being in our fandom. Thanks for 2 fun years of biggering!
And always remember:
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. Its not.
