Turn On Your Heart Light  
So there's been lots of hate going around lately. How about a little Friday Love? Is there someone you love? Someone who makes your day better? Who makes you laugh? Let's talk about that!

I'll start, shall I?

I've been in fandom a really long time, but it's been awhile since I've felt like a part of fandom, and I'd missed that feeling, so love and hugs to all of you here on LJ who welcomed me, friended me, read and commented on my fic, made me laugh, who shared their thoughts, who wrote wonderful stories to spark my imagination, and who let me squee! without looking at me like I'm weird (well, I am, but you knew that)

A special helping of strawberries and cream to my fellow PWFC members -- both those I've known for years, and those I've just met here on LJ -- who have been so great as I stick my toes back into the water after a two year hiatus. And to some really old Forever Knight friends, who I met ten years ago online and rediscovered here.

Oh? and the new fad that's going to sweep the LJ world? Forget hate comms -- Virtual Pet Rocks! I call mine 'Methos' and he has a lovely blue stripe [g]

Rediscovering people from the mailing lists years ago who are now on LJ is pretty damn awesome! *hugs*

I love my family in the Forever Knight fandom.

I love my family in the slashy Mulder corner of the X-Files fandom.

I love LJ, I think it's a wonderful idea.

And Pet Rocks! Mood rings came back, bell bottoms and hip huggers came back, I want Pet Rocks to come back. My sister had one, it came on a fake gold chain. They called it a pet rock on a leash.

Maybe I'm the plucky comic relief...?: Pros - Plays well with othersagentxpndble on June 9th, 2006 04:21 pm (UTC)
Brilliant idea - I'll join in!

My friend - and ex-coworker - S. She is one of the most genuine, loving, giving, open minded, happy people I have ever known. She is tireless. Some days I miss working with her so much it hurts - She's the kind of person that just being around gives you hope and makes you feel good. It's not that she treats *you* like you're special (although there's that too) - It's that her relentless, never-ending trust in humanity, love, and generosity to *everyone* is so healthy to be around - It just rubs off on you with exposure. :-)

And yes, there are many fans in my life who have moved me to tears with their generosity and friendship.

All my love to Ninjababe. She's my best friend, adopted sister, and kid all in one. She makes me laugh, she's way smarter than I am, and she can't cook to save her life [g] I met her ten years ago on the Forever Knight IRC channel, and she asked me to beta read her FK/XM fic. I said yes, and little did I know it would be the start of one of the most important relationships in my life. She moved in ten years ago this coming October, and I even turned down a herd of goats as a bride price for her [g] Now that's love!

She's my little NinjaPiglet Slash Queen :) I'll probably never have a child of my own, but that's okay, because I have her.

You're gonna make me cry! [hugs!]

I still need to write that essay "How Forever Knight changed my life". :)

And, [bap] I am not smarter than you! [glare]

Well, I'm glad you found your way to LJ, makes it easier to keep in touch. :)

I've still stayed on the outskirts of fandom, and hadn't been much involved at all for the past 6 years due to health issues, which have been getting better.

The person who makes my day brighter is my good friend elycia, who helped me out so much during my dark days in the past several years. We call her a saint for a reason.

I'm meeting all sorts of cool new people in fandom these days but the three people who have kept me going since the early days are the ones I'll always treasure: Joan S., Merrie Gail, and Jenni. They've kept me on track, helped me keep my sanity (literally) and reminded me that no matter how nasty some "fans" can be, there are still folks here who are good, decent, kind and generous of spirit. I want to be like them when I grow up. :)

Yeah, fandom can be just great, and the good always overcomes the bad!

My son always makes my days better. He brings a smile to my face and laughter to my life.

* hugs you *

Thanks for being a part of my flist.
