I, not you or anyone else, walked up to the great oak doors. Behind them laid some of the best characters I had had ever known. They made me laugh, cry, and squeal like a fangirl. That’s what they made me, a fangirl.
These characters began my transition from punk to geek. In the beginning I was unsure and conflicted; I didn’t know where I fit in.
Before I thought there were only two types of girls, tomboy and girly-girl. I was never interested in sports enough to be a tomboy, but I wasn’t interested in clothes enough to be a girly-girl. This led me to seek out an identity for myself, a label, a category I could fall under.
It was after I met these amazing characters that I realized there were others like me. I found my place, and for a while that was enough.
Now I’m older.
Now I’ve moved on.
I’ll never forget them, they who started me on my path to geekdom.
I’ll never truly say goodbye. But I must say goodbye to this chapter of my life.
Dear Deviantart and, most of all, My Loyal Watchers
Thank you for giving me a place to share my love of something wonderful. Thank you for the encouragement I needed to push through some tough times in my life. This place gave me the confidence I needed to write and now, not only do I write full length fanfictions, I write my own original work that I hope to one day seen depicted here in artwork or in fanfiction.
My childhood will never truly be over, but it’s time for me to let go of the past and settle into my adult future.
Banshee-Scream, signing off for the last time.
I, me, Banshee, pushed the door open to reveal bickering countries. I smiled; I may change, but they never will.
