20-something who is a total dork and currently making up for 15 years of anime that I've missed. I like pretty things and video games and music and laughing. I'm a Sagittarius, I'm dating a Leo. I also work at the Disney Store among other places. Expect more than the occasional Akuroku. That ship sails itself.
”I stopped writing about half way through high school. I began to see a decline in my ability to sustain a happy and healthy attitude towards everything. I was seeing the death of who I was and growing into the adult I needed to be to survive. Today, I’ve been worn down to a fraction of what I was once capable of. I expected to see that person come back by now, fully alive and able. It was difficult to come to terms with the fact that she was never coming back. I look at old pictures of myself and realize that that spark that brought life to worlds and a voice to endless characters had begun to break apart. I can see the progression. By the time I lost my father, that had died along with him. No longer did I sing as loud, no longer did I dance to the beat of my own drum. I now spend my evenings curled up and exploring the darkness that has seeped into my heart and consumed my essence. The girl who once could feel the love and pain of mere fiction had a taste of what real anguish was and it was nothing in comparison. It was nothing she wanted to have again. I gave up on dreams of any sort of fantastical life. I gave up on travel and adventures a long time ago. I have been given the opportunity to find love and it is everything I would have hoped for. My heart still thinks of the past fondly, but I have come to terms with the danger it poses. I am not welcome in that place anymore. The child that lives there, the person that once was, would like to live there in peace. Though she has passed, she lives a better life that I could ever imagine. She isn’t alone anymore. She went through her pain, and now she gets to live happily ever after. One day, I will too.”
