    Happy birthday :D

  • So it seems I haven’t logged in in ages and I feel terrible about it and I’m not sure how many people there are that might still remember me anymore. But there is a very special reason I wanted to visit again today. I haven’t really been writing since I finished the first draft of my novel nearly two years ago (wow), but YWS is still a big part of my life through the connections I’ve made here.

    There’s one especially important one. I first came across @Charlie II in 2008 when I was 15 and a relatively new member, and we bonded a bit over our same yellow font in the chatroom that was all blue back then! Then he kind of faded out of YWS while I continued being active, until he resurfaced during his first years at university. We still remembered each other and quickly became close friends over our shared, amazing sense of humour amongst other things. After about half a year of getting to know each other again, he decided to visit me in my home country and we soon became an item. There were a couple of years of travelling back and forth, until he moved to live with me in 2014.

    Fast forward past the weeks, months, years, various YWS-iversaries (my last one was the 12th, a bit over a month ago) until last Saturday, 6th of June, 2020. I’m now 27 years old and – readers, I married him.

    We wouldn’t be here without @Nate and his work on this website, so thank you very much for that. We will definitely be sending a card your way :)

    I hope you are all doing well even if this year is not treating the world very well, and a lot of the world is treating the rest of it even worse. We have been lucky where we are, because the restrictions here are not very strict anymore and we were able to celebrate our day with about 25 of our most loved ones. I wish you all health and strength <3

    P.S. Our exit music was Can You Feel the Love Tonight, which might not be a surprise based on my profile picture :D


    Elinor I love this and both of you. Hope you’re doing well. ❤️

  • About seven years ago, I had a really boring summer job where one of my most challenging tasks was to test a boxful of pens to see if they still worked. As this didn't take most of my work days, I had a lot of time on my hands.

    Around that time, @StellaThomas and I liked to talk about boys and imagine ourselves as princesses hosting tea parties in gazebos. Honestly, I like to think it's ultimately still the same. But what started as that has led to today. After years of intense writing phases coupled with countless breaks that would last months and months, I have finally finished the first draft of my first ever novel. It has changed so much from what I thought it would be at 18 - in a way, I've grown up with this story. I think my characters needed this time, too, to learn to think for themselves.

    I have only just finished it half an hour ago, so I'm pretty blank at this moment, but I guess I'll feel... something? Tomorrow? Anyway, I wouldn't have finished it right now if it weren't for #LMS which I am glad to say I have kept up as a rogue until today, but I suppose it will end for me now since my goal was to finish this story. I don't know when I'll come back to it, but I'm just so proud to have finished something big for once, even if it took me years.

    Some of you have directly helped me with this, but all of you have done so indirectly. So thank you all <3

    I know this seems like such an Oscar speech, but this really is incredibly new and special to me. And I can't quite believe it to be true.

    P.S. Stella, I only realised later that the characters share our initials. I don't think that was intentional. At least I definitely don't remember making it so.


    BluesClues Congratulations!

    Cadi Ah! Congratulations, Dems! Regardless of whether you come back to it, well done on hitting your goal and finishing it! <3
