Never mind all that, because the point of this post is that you guys made it so much better. It felt like every time I was on the verge of throwing in the towel for the day, someone in fandom made me smile. Here's how:
♠ A lovely person left a little comment on a fic which really kinda blew me away, left me so very grateful and boosted my confidence like you wouldn't believe.
♠ There's this fic by oxoniensis, if we keep living this fast, no one will have time to die. If I had to put together a list of my all time favorites this would probably show up twice on that list, and I discovered yesterday that ohh_heather has recorded it here. It's marvelous.
♠ Then the brilliant and immensely talented mashimero knocked my socks off completely by drawing an incredibly lovely thing, inspired by that little fic I wrote the other day, kneel right down and pray for you. I love it. I'm in love with it. Their expressions. Their body language. Everything about it. It's spoilery for the fic, but that's not important. The important thing is that it's beautiful. Go forth and take a look-see. It will make your day better: All the Love Up In Heaven.
You guys rock. I'm just sayin'.
Now I'm going to spend the remainder of the morning writing love notes. If you'd like one, head on over here! I still have a handful left.
