I used to love a boy who pretended to be a man who loved it here, a Peter Pan flying and galloping through the Never-Never Land of comics. He didn't love me back, though, and married someone else. I left because I didn't want to be reminded of him or the not-me things he loved.

One day I woke up, though, and realized that I was a selfish little girl, when, in fact, I needed to be a woman. I made up with him, though he is gone from this place still for reasons I completely understand. I'm not writing this for attention, but writing it for you.

I still enjoy comics and video games and wonderfully nerdy things. The things I fell in love with weren't parts of him, but parts of me that he led to. You are you, and not him or her, and when things seem to fall to pieces, it isn't catastrophe, but your chance to put things back together again to make an even better picture than before. I was homeless once, and then I wasn't. I was in love once, and then I wasn't, but I look forward to being in love again. The next time, though, I will be me and not just imagine myself part of him. I hope that you find love and when you do, be yourself so that people can love you for you. Don't try to be part of him. Or her. Or them.

I can't speak to God, but I love you all. It feels good to be back.

-A.

@luna_joestar: lol I like Lacuna Coil best myself. Vampire Weekend sucks all the energy out of a room, and I imagine Frankenstein Halfday's set would be cobbled together from other bands'.

Neil Gaiman, what do I do about my writer's block and progressive heart disease? Also, ever since Wes Craven died, my dreams have been mediocre.

@neghead: I suspect he dosn't give unnecessary negativity much thought.

But the thread title reminded me of Hello, It's Me by Todd Rundgren so thanks for that OP.

I don't know you, but welcome back! May our nonexistent friendship blossom into something resembling a normal functioning platonic relationship between two individuals upon a forum and last for a thousand dynasties! (Or maybe just one, really, I am not picky. But a thousand just sounds so much more better, no?)

@wut: Ow! By bose! [*translation- "My nose!"] -I have vague memories of my parents watching Dynasty, but I suspect archaeologists and historians will forget that show more quickly than I almost have. Our friendship? Transcendent! Same to you, @xaos! If you haven't already had the pleasure of meeting @luna_joestar, please seek out that opportunity! She saved my life during Operation: Galactic Storm.

@theaudraway: The Face Five is the highest of all Fives!... And I can't control my hand, it does what it wills, I say. (Or, if that one didn't work, I am just a boy, I know not what I do.)

Archaeologist and historians will forget it, but Google never does. I wish I had told my younger self that same thing. It would have erased some rather embarrassing videos and saved me a lot of money on those rentals. Oh, well, you live and you learn... and live with the shame for the rest of your days...

Since you last posted "Then hurry up and die" when in response to my belief that a lipoma on my arm might be cancerous, I'd say we're anything but good. How about this, though--you stay away from me, and I will extend the same courtesy to you.

@misteranderson: This sonds like a good idea. Whatever your shared past, looks like Audra is trying to be a better person for it and move on. You doing the same would probably earn you new friends.
