Not me wandering in a year late, holding a Starbucks cup.

I found Mark Reads sometime during Breaking Dawn, and read both blogs faithfully until Life Happened a few years ago. I learned so much during my time in the community, and it has 100% made me a better, more empathetic, and more socially aware person. This version of these projects coming to a close is truly the end of an era, and I am so glad that I got to be part of them for as long as I did. I truly, truly, loved my time in this community.

As for my fondest and most lasting memory? 'What news from the Mark?' during the LoTR liveblogs.

So excited for this. Easily my favorite book in the series.

I won't be commenting further on this post, but I wanted to say that I've reread my initial comment a few times, and I can see where my wording implied that commenting = lack of disability. That wasn't my intention, but intention isn't magic, so I apologize for my lack of clarity and clumsily chosen words.

I've also refrained from commenting due to mental health issues, and the implication that the only people whose opinions matter are those who commented because they either don't have mental health issues, or have managed to push past their mental health issues is also ableist as fuck.

...I'm sorry, are you saying that the only supporters of this site whose opinions should be taken into account are those who don't find it anxiety-inducing or uncomfortable or emotionally draining to participate in very active comments sections, particularly ones that have become as emotionally fraught as these have in the last few weeks?

The author did a very thorough job of tagging, so I won't add any trigger warnings here. I hope you enjoy it!
