positivity post!  
...can you believe I'm posting something that isn't a Yuletide letter?

Anyway. I figured this was a better platform for what I'd like to do than Twitter or Tumblr, so here we are!

Everything sort of sucks right now! It's a super scary time in our country! It's hard to balance political action against personal care – to find the right balance of engaging/making your voice heard and preventing activist fatigue here at the very beginning of the battle.

I'm super proud of all of my friends who've been pouring out love and support to each other, and I thought this was something I could do to provide some love and support myself.

So! Comment here, and I'll write you a note! You don't have to have an LJ account, but if you comment anon, please let me know who you are!!!

<3 <3 <3

Hi hello yes, you are very dear to me and I am so proud of you for many reasons, and you bring a great light into my life <3

Sabine!!! It is sometimes strange to me to think back on our trajectory as fandom-adjacent acquaintances with mutual friends to actual friends who play D&D together and have our own rapport. I definitely prefer the now to the then. We don't share much in the way of fandoms, but that's never bothered me. Your sense of humor is so sharp, and your skills as a DM are excellent. I've loved getting to see you multiple times this year, and one nice thing about going to Mississippi is knowing that you won't be far off! <3

this is actually really hard to comment on without feeling like "oh i am going to be the person that makes sarah all 'ugh i didn't mean HER'" but....hi. i think you're nifty and really admire how hard you work especially in the face of all the stupid setbacks, and also your make-up skills.

I'm glad you commented! Everyone needs positivity, and I'm happy to spread it even if we're not super BFFs. I feel like I've known you longer than I have just from hearing Kait talk about you for so long. I know that this year has been shittier to you than most, but I'm happy to see that you appear to be coping, and that you have your apartment now, which is awesome! You're a sane voice in a fandom climate that's gone bananas, and I super appreciate you for that. I hope you continue to enjoy your new apartment and that 2017 brings you only good things. <3

NAOMI. Oh man. I'm so excited I finally got to actually spend time with you this year!! You've been a great comfort to me in dealing with sexuality bullshit, and I'm glad that we were able to bond quickly and deeply once we actually got in contact with each other instead of just having mutual friends! You're a great source of sunshine, and you should totally keep doing Holtzmann hair. <3
