Okay, so I was checking my eamil for the 9529457259476th time today and I get a review alert from fanfiction. I think, “Yay, I love reviews.” and then I realize it’s a review for my latest story “Freedom to Love and Memories of the Past”, which is an OC/Grey’sAnatomy crossover oneshot that is my favorite piece I’ve ever written. So I’m like, “Sweet, I can’t wait to read this.” And then I read what it says.
hopelesslyhalfhearted: this is…it’s…it’s twisted and dark and depressing and seriously upsetting…but it’s so, so good.
Okay, seriously? Seriously?! I am in a state of something that couldn’t be described as anything less than complete and utter BLISS. This is EXACTLY what I was going for. When I got the idea and started writing, those were the exact emotions I was trying to convey. I just… I can’t even explain how happy this has made me. I printed that review out and hung it up on my wall, and now every time I see it I grin. Because it’s times like these that I really, truly, deeply love the amazing world of literature. The awe and wonder that can come from putting pen to paper (or keys to…screen, whatever) affecting people with the emotions that you have strove so very hard to convey…..the feeling is stupendous. Absolutely and indescribably amazing. Happy. :)
"To me, “FEARLESS” is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them. It’s FEARLESS to say “you’re NOT sorry”, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS. Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright…That’s FEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is FEARLESS."
