It’s been exactly one year since I came out and I honestly can’t even believe it. So much was going on at the time, — both good and bad — when I decided to finally accept myself for who I am. I think the decisions I made and the path I travelled along definitely made a significant and positive impact on who I am as a person, and I think it was the perfect time. I could have came out years ago, but I just wasn’t ready. So much was happening in my life back then and the trauma stopped me from accepting myself. However, when I finally DID accept myself, I found that things got much better all around. While there are still some things about myself that I’d like to work on, I am much happier than I used to be and would not want anything to be different.
Which brings me to my next point.
About two months ago I started dating my best friend, @traumaticcandy , who is the kindest, most beautiful person inside and out. At first, it was quite surprising to see how natural everything felt between us, but I quickly realized that this was how it was supposed to be all along. I am happier than ever with her and with myself, and that is a great feeling.

Unsolicited Opinions on the Vampire Knight Fandom War/Therapeutic Ranting
First of all, I’ll give full disclosure by saying I barely deserve to call myself part of the VK fandom as a whole or the Zeki family because I have been out of the loop since 2013 when that ending killed my soul. Also, grad school ate up all my time to spend emotionally stewing in my feels about this story over the past couple of years. But I’m going to post my thoughts on the current Vampire Knight fandom war anyway because after only a week back in it, I am seriously baffled by what is going on here. I’m going to try to break my ideas down I guess for anyone reading this but it is more rant than analysis, really.
