People in the Panic! community should read this, too. I've hit 100 review pages. I'm here to thank everyone.
July 5th, 2012. That's when I published my first chapter if my first Fanfiction ever.
I remember,distinctly, that first review and how it was marked as my first page. I also remember thinking
"Wow. One day, it'll have at least 20, if I'm lucky. "
And I did. I got those 20 pages of reviews. Followed by another 20. And another. And another. And now, I have 100 pages filled with input, feedback, the "I love this"s, the "Update soon"s. And, quite honestly, it feels so fucking good. I've come so far from that first page, that first friend, that first audition, that first "Hey, I'm atomickilljoy". It feels incredible. And, everyday, I've gotten a chance to fall in love with a fiction and make a new friend.
It's changed me.
I feel so different. I'm not that wimpy, boy crazy, little girl anymore. I'm a new girl. I've changed for the better,and I've made friends along the way. I feel so much more fortunate and complete, and I never take any review for granted.
I've changed, and so has my writing style, and my likes, dislikes, fears. Everything. I used to hate writing, but now, it's a part of me. I don't know where I'd be without it.
Thank you all.
Thanks, CyanideSuicide, for taking a chance on me and my very first story, and giving me that first review that inspired me to write more and to think "Hey, I might be kind of good at this!" I feel so happy that you're the reason that I kept writing, and I, now, get 10 reviews in 10 minutes when I post up a story, when I used to get 1 a day, from you!
Thanks, Mirazal, for reviewing my stories when I was still starting out. It made me feel happy, and special.
Thanks, rydenbeliever-lover, for reviewing my story, the first story I was a bit proud of, that became a mini series.
Thanks, Kaleidoscope_Eyes, for making your stories, that really inspired me to write.
Thanks, Mrs-Ross_Urie, for really liking my stories, and encouraging me to write more.
Thanks, Sam41, for being my first real friend on this site, back when you were XEvil_AngelX.
And thanks electricviolence, ColorfulShadow, KelseyChem, xMikeyxx, tmbfucks, Cookie_Monster, Ravan-VanSlaughter, AshIsNotOnFire, Heartbreak_Beauty, MrsWayBeckett, OhMyGee, XxPerfectTomorrowxX, Shayla_Boo, fatherfuckingmeese, ScreamingNinja93, RyanCyanideKiller, LaurentheHuman, Obsessive-Fangirl and others for becoming my friends, like my siblings, throughout the time I've been here
And, finally, thank you all. FicWad and it's community. I'm so glad I ever joined. It's the best decision I ever made. I hope to give others that same chance CyanideSuicide gave me. That chance to be a part of something so special and rare.
I hope to hit 100 more pages, and have many more friends throughout my journey here.
I won't ever take it for granted.
See you in the next 100.
Things have changed for me
And that's okay
I feel the same
I'm on my way
