So I used to be in this fandom. Well okay, I used to be in a lot of fandoms, but this one in particular was my first community. I was thirteen, and therefore entirely too nervous to actually say anything - ever - but I followed everyone on LJ and I knew all the big names and I read all the fanfiction and followed all the speculation. I loved my Team 13 along with a wonderful group of people who took a few side characters and saw an amazing connection, a friendship and camaraderie, and the potential for a beautiful romance. It was a wonderful thing to watch.

Eventually I moved on to other things, new fandoms and OTPs, new muses. After a while, it seemed like the rest of the fandom had too. Sometimes, once in a very long while, I would browse through my favourite parts of the community, seemingly frozen in disuse. And then today  I found out that one of those characters - one third of my favourite trio, one half of my first OTP - is dead. In canon. For real.

And I'm not sure how to really feel. So I sit here and write a musing post to the LJ profile I hardly use anymore because I'm not sure what to do about the slightly achy feels.

I know you've moved on - live journal and being a teenager is now probably all but a distant (not too distant mind) memory.
But I just wanted to say I have read all your HaHe entries (and the reflections in between) and have enjoyed it immensely.
I'm sorry the last entry had to be so sad, and true, and I hope you found some sort of closure on it - probably by not using LJ again!
However you're a really talented writer and I hope you carried that writing on into much bigger things.
All the best to you.
