It's fraking scary how much other people can have an influence on you.

Take popkin16 for instance. Because of her, I have, amongst other things, watched: Supernatural, due South, X-Men: First Class, Vikings, Game of Thrones, Les Miserables and probably a whole bunch of other thing I'm forgetting. Because of her, I read all 1100 pages of Les Mis. I now how how the antipossesion symbol from SPN tattooed on my body. Granted, these last two are indirect, but when I think about all the time I've devoted to these things on her suggestions, all of the mental energy that has gone into them.... I mean, who the frak would I be right now without her? To say nothing of the fact she's essentially kept me sane when I've been about ready to lose it, and, well, a dozen other things besides.

And then there's melodysparks, who has officially ruined me for tea and american chocolate. And rhia_starsong who sends me things when I'm sounding especially depressed. And selenic76, who made me that beautiful keychain and everyone whose ever read my stories and left feedback and drastically changed the future of the story because, well, I'd never thought of it that way and-

I've made a lot of mistakes in my life. But they've gotten me here. I don't know who I'd be right now without all of you - where I'd be - and it's just.... I love you all.

Yay! I'm actually down to like 1.5 boxes from all that stuff you sent for Xmas. I think I must have drank half a box in the last week alone....
*HUGS* We're here to help and support and encourage and make you smile and all, but you are the one opening all the doors and taking the steps forward. I'm happy and honoured to have been and to be a part of your life. And just so you know, you have made a difference in my life as well, not only because you have helped me make a home here on LHJ, but because you are an inspiration to me, seeing how you go on despite adversities :)

It may be snowing here today, but my heart is warmed by this post.

Love and hugs,

Thanks bb. Sometimes it feels all I do is take and take and take from you guys. Glad to know that's not the case.
Haha! That is excellent. I may take that as my motto.

You are too kind though. In just glad you all listen to me.

You've had a huge influence on me, as well. And I am so happy that I met you and that we became friends. I value you so greatly. I'm happy that I'v been a positive influence on you as well, and that I've helped keep you sane. I'll always be here to support you - you're intelligent, kind, generous, and I am very lucky to know you. YOU'RE A GOOD FRIEND, ARTHUR.


I have nothing articulate I can say to this, except that I utterly adore you and am so glad to have met you and am glad you feel the same.

I know what you mean. I care about you so much, but it's difficult for me to articulate. HOW DO I TELL YOU WITH MERE WORDS THAT I AM SO TERRIBLY HAPPY WE ARE FRIENDS.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
