This post is so terribly, embarassingly belated (I'm sorry! This month has been a shitshow but that's a story for another post!) and I hope you'll forgive me, but I absolutely could not skip making it when there was so much fandom love that made my birthday at least a thousand times better. So from the bottom of my very tardy heart: thank you!!

Especially thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lumosed_quill for an absolutely delicious-looking v-gift and to LQ and [livejournal.com profile] eidheann_writes, [livejournal.com profile] capitu, [livejournal.com profile] blithelybonny, [livejournal.com profile] nia_kantorka, [livejournal.com profile] ani_mage, [livejournal.com profile] khalulu, [livejournal.com profile] zeitgeistic, [livejournal.com profile] smirkingcat, [livejournal.com profile] khalulu, [livejournal.com profile] disapparater, [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore, [livejournal.com profile] gracerene, and [livejournal.com profile] firethesound for lovely birthday messages and emails!!

ALSO, if you have not yet seen them, I absolutely recommend high-tailing it over to the following incredible gifts!

Unexpected by [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore - NC-17, 5 x 100 words
Birds described this as "a little recreational hair-pulling for your birthday" but it's by birds so clearly we know it's going to be more than that. And lo and behold, it is. Five drabbles - all of which do feature the aforementioned hair-pulling - and each one is fantastic and full of delicious tension. And then together they tell this story that's all about how their relationship changes, and with that about how one act can take on so many different meanings within the same relationship. It's beautifully written and just...go read it!

Orchideous by [livejournal.com profile] anemonen - G, digital art
This is a scene from my fic Any Instrument and while I don't think Ane knew this, it's one of my favorite scenes. She did a phemomenal job of capturing it. Phenomenal. Harry looks so focused and open (and his eyelashes! I didn't notice them before but Ane, they're a perfect detail) and the colors fit the mood I had in mind beautifully. It's always an incredible gift to see something I've written come to life, and to see how it looks in someone else's mind, and on top of that this just hits the nail on the head. And on top of being perfect for the scene, it's a beautiful drawing, full of detail and movement and color, and you will most certainly enjoy having a gander!!

In conclusion: fandom is the best. You are all the best. Fandom and you make life that much richer, and I am grateful for it every day of the year!

You are an utter delight and fandom is lucky to have you.

That art! My days! It's glorious all by itself, but the memories it evokes of that fic are pretty phenomenal.

Yay for nice fandom birthdays!! Birds' fic was indeed all kinds of wonderful. I loved it a lot <3 Thank you for your lovely words and the rec, and, again, I'm so thrilled you liked it so much! That's the best feeling in the world -- creating something for someone and have them appreciate it so much. So thanks for being a perfect recipient <3<3

I'm sorry that your month has been so bad, though. Here's to the next being less shitshow-y and with only good things happening! *hugs*
