I don't know what to do anymore prompt guy. With every day being the same I feel like my life is slowly coming to an end.

Usually, in a situation like this, I would have said ‘Everything is going be alright’. But I realize such a response doesn’t do any justice to your suffering. Humans lead busy lives and when they say those things they mean well, trust me. It’s just that we barely have any time to cultivate our empathy.  

Although I have had my fair share of hardships in life, I don’t know how to really respond to this. I spent the last 30 minutes looking up a scene on Youtube for you, but I couldn’t find it. I did find a long quote tho! It’s from my favorite movie ‘Into the Wild’. It changed my view on life tremendously. I know it won’t fix a dormant soul and you might not relate to it but I do hope you find some value in it.  This is all I can do for now, anonymous. Message me if you need a friend. 

“I’d like to repeat the advice that I gave you before, in that I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. 


If you want to get more out of life, Ron, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty. And so, Ron, in short, get out of Salton City and hit the Road. I guarantee you will be very glad you did. But I fear that you will ignore my advice. You think that I am stubborn, but you are even more stubborn than me. You had a wonderful chance on your drive back to see one of the greatest sights on earth, the Grand Canyon, something every American should see at least once in his life. But for some reason incomprehensible to me you wanted nothing but to bolt for home as quickly as possible, right back to the same situation which you see day after day after day. I fear you will follow this same inclination in the future and thus fail to discover all the wonderful things that God has placed around us to discover.

Don’t settle down and sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon. You are still going to live a long time, Ron, and it would be a shame if you did not take the opportunity to revolutionize your life and move into an entirely new realm of experience.

You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience. We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living.

My point is that you do not need me or anyone else around to bring this new kind of light in your life. It is simply waiting out there for you to grasp it, and all you have to do is reach for it. The only person you are fighting is yourself and your stubbornness to engage in new circumstances.”

I just wanted to follow up my review about your story on FFNet. I would like to point out that your story is so legit-looking, that it has somehow changed the way I look at the show itself! Like I can't stop thinking about the story whenever I would watch the show! Now you might think of it as a bad thing because it might have ruined the cannon story for me? But nah! Don't worry. Again, I'm impressed by the fact that your story can easily manipulate my view about the show. I LOVE IT! :)

Sorry for the late response. Thanks for your review! haha i was wondering how the shift was going to settle with people because i had it planned since i started (i jokingly hint at it in the summary). I’m really glad my story hasn’t changed your view of Star vs in a negative light. I mean i try to structure Nova vs in the same style of the show because i feel its the best way to do a spin off. though i have more leeway with the content. haha it fills me with pride when people let me know they hope nova becomes canon. It would be an amazing dream come true if it happens but honestly, i’m just happy the readers enjoy her so much. After all she’s only came this far because of all of you :) so thank you and everyone else for their support of all i do. It means the world to me. and Nova of course. hopefully i can keep on doing you readers proud.
