Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who posted those lovely messages in my previous post. They were all kind and reassuring, so thank you for the confort of words, I think I really needed that.

Things kinda settled now around here and I think everything is back to normal, so... yeah, it is hard, but we all have to get over stuff like this and learn to expect to hit us again, cause, in the end, they're part of this crazy thing called life. I'm sorry again if this seemed a bit exagerated, since other, really awful things happen in the world, but... I think that, because people around me say I live in a cocoon, in my own little world where no one can touch me, this event was kind of a breaking point. It needs to be a breaking point so I can snap out of some stuff and see the real world like a 23-year-old should see it. He he, it did make me settle and get over some petty and imature things concerning stuff and posters from FF.

+ I ship Nathan and Haley. Always have, always will. And ONLY with each other. +
+ I love Joy. I love James. I especially love Joy and James, hence, I ship the JLs. ONLY with each other. +
+ I like Brooke and Lucas. Romantically. They are more beliavable to me as a couple. +
+ I like Peyton and Lucas. As friends. They have the perfect BFF chemistry for me. +
+ I like Peyton, I like Brooke, kinda the same way. I don't have prefferences, nor care what happens with them in the end. The same thing goes for Hilarie and Sophia. +
+ I dislike NB, NP or any other ship that has Nathan or James paired with anyone that is not Haley/Joy. +

The above statements, though, will NOT influence how I make my Flist, how I choose my friends or how I treat any of you, out there, in this fanbase, IF we play a fair game and respect each other, especially if we don't make up stuff or stab each other in the back.

So, to whom it may concern, though I don't think they're in my FList and probably never will be, I'm sorry if I ever made you wrong, I appologize if I made shots at any of you, I understand your points of view concerning the-ones-you-love, I've learned to accept that we're all different and react differently when we think we're offended or taken for granted, I'm sorry we don't see eye-to-eye at times (though from what I see, we still share the same loves/hates). At times, I really wish that things will turn to normal, at least on the OTH fanbase front, like IDK... 1-2 years ago, before the ships started "sinking" each other, before we separated our real friends from the Others, before we made secret communities to bash one another, before we started ignoring or cutting people because they were with the Others, before the Others and Us were separated, before... I started hating the fanbase. But anyway, personally, I got over it. I'll ignore when I'm being attacked, I'll say Hi back when someone says Hi, I'll help when I'm needed and I'll try to avoid getting sucked into petty things again. *Hugs*.

Even though this isn't pointing the finger at any of you, deep down inside you know what I'm talking about, cause I think we should take time to think about stuff like this and have a reality check. I sure needed one. :P

Have a nice week, everyone!


ETA: AJ, congrats again for the Mod position at James' board. I'm happy you're there and I hope I'll drop by more often, after the hiatus. It looks like a really fun place to hang! :D

Hey Andi,

I'm glad that things are starting to improve, but remember that we're all here for you. You shouldn't apologize for how you felt or still feel, and there's nothing wrong with caring. I felt the same way when my dog Max passed away. I understand you completely. *hugs*

Oh, I agree with you about the fanbase comment. I've never been one to pick my friends based on ships, and I don't think I've ever noticed you being rude or whatever to the other ships. I think we can all get along, and we have to, especially if people want a season 5.

Have a great week to you too! :)

Absolutely! Everyone has a right to who they like. I watch the show because I love the show and all it's characters. Sure I love Nathan and Naley but I like all the characters. I don't like it when people bash the show or Mark. I want a Season 5! We do need to stick together as a fanbase.

I completely agree with everything that you said about the OTH fandom. It really is pretty awful how we treat each other at times. I hope everything is a bit better now than it was?

*huge hugs*

Beautiful points made Andrea and I just agree with you completely. It's nice having friends who ship different couples than you do. It brings on different persepctives. And it's a show at the end of day. It shouldn't be so volatile that it makes you go totally against another person. Maybe different viewpoints and good constructive arguing, but not some of the hurtful things I've seen (all over, no one place in particular). No reason for that in my opinion. And I'm glad you don't participate in that.

I am glad that things are getting better for you!

And thanks again, Please do stop by it is less hostile over at the JLa board! I would love to see you around there more!
