Today it hit me, as I was crying to my friend on the phone, telling them how alone I was, and how empty I felt, the reason why I am part of so many fandoms is because I need to fill up that void.
I loose myself in these worlds and fill my mind up with these fictional stories, and characters, and events…because there’s nothing else for me, because I feel so numb and ruined and broken without that glue.
There’s so many of us out there, and just the thought of that makes me feel a little whole, and a little loved, the thought that there are others who will gladly reach out and give me a hand when I am at my lowest.
We are all waiting in this world while traveling in our imagination; through space and time, across the world and all its countries, to different realms, surrounded by guardians, beasts, heroes, and villains unlike any other, because even if it might not be real at least there is something there to make us feel warm, and loved. In the end, none of it is real, it is all women, men, and otherwise just like us, living through life.
Yet they are making it so that our dreams and fantasies are filled to the brim.
So thank you.
Thank you to the writers
Thank you to the production
Thank you to the artists
Thank you to the performers
But most of all thank you. Thank you all for filling me up with so much joy, with all the beautiful art, the endless writing, the hilarious posts, and the intriguing analyzing of plots and characters.
