I found a community that doesn't feed on negative energy and really wants to hear what I say. Writers and mods who I have a huge amount of respect for, not just for their writing, but for the way they don't act all superior, but joke and join in conversations. I found fan fiction that was beta read, that tickled my funny bone, made me anxious, and on occasions, made me cry. Fanfic just isn't supposed to be that powerful. Sugarquill is like my safe hole, when I don't feel up to the barrage of other stuff the internet and HP fandom throws at me. So I raise my butterbeer, Happy Birthday Sugarquill, may this be the first of many birthdays.
