I suppose we all knew it was coming. I don't want to let go of this account. I didn't have the heart to click deactivate. Too many memories, you know?
I want to say thank you. I'm not exactly sure but, everyone here, every single one of you has changed my life. You made me smile. You had so much faith in me even in my lowest points. dA is a great community, and as I mentioned in a previous entry, everyone is so friendly and so considerate. There's no major pressure that your work isn't good. Everyone's is good! Just some people had more time to practice.
Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for not letting me go. Thank you, Blue Crew.
I've changed. I don't necessarily like LPers any more. I needed a new fresh start and I hope a lot of you can understand that. ArchiveOfOurOwn is too competitive and, I can't think of the word, but when you post something and people don't respond, you get that urge to delete it, you feel like you've made a mistake... On Tumblr, everything's a battle. Who has more followers, how many networks you're in, better writing... It's not like that here, or at least, not how I remember.
It's been years. Long years full of courage, smiles, laughter and being who we are. I don't mean to shed any tears but I'm a writer and that sometimes happens.
I've grown. I've matured and my writing style has too. Sometimes a new start is needed, ya know? Sometimes... it's for the better.
A lot has happened to me in these years that I haven't been on. I've... changed but despite that whenever I hear someone call, 'Bluey!', I turn my head with a smile. I'm still known as that to many. I'm still Bluey, no matter what happens.
I'll be deleting journal entries and personal submissions. All stories and art will stay. None will be transferred unless I feel the need.
*deep breath* I feel like I now have to say that I'm sorry. But, if you, yes you reading this now, choose to follow me in my move, then feel free. Friends are always welcome, memories always ready to be made. If you don't, that's okay too and I thank you for spending these years with me.
This is it, Blue Crew. The dead end ahead in the road. The sunset on a beautiful long day. The breaking of a guitar string.
This is it, Blue Crew. The turning around and finding a new route. The stargazing to start a wonderful night. The new replaced string.
