Hey everyone, it's really nice to come here every once in a while and hear from you all. It sounds like you all are having a lot of ups and downs, but still having the time to update us in your lives is always somethig that helps keep us connected and I certainly appreciate it.

As for myself, I guess two main things have happened within the last month or so. First is that I'm 18 now, so... okay that doesn't actually change much but it makes me feel more confident in myself so there's that. The second thing is that I just got a dog! Her name is Zelda, as in the princess. She's a three year old lab and just the biggest sweetheart. Walking her is officially my new favorite pastime.

All in all, 2017 has been pretty alright for me. Sure, politically it felt like someone shoved a shovel up my ass, my personally I really felt like a lot of stuff in my life I had been afraid of finally fell into place and I'm less scared now.

I hope you all have a fantastic new year, and here's to hoping 2018 kicks 2017's ass.

@Meopat if your doing doujin scans, i would definitely love to see them. It's a bit ridiculous how not at all moved on from No. 6 I am. I brought it on dvd to my school this week to try to attempt my marine teacher to let us watch it since we have two days of school left and aren't doing anything. This story is forever ingrained in me T_T

I miss hearing from you all as well, and I'm glad to see you're doing well. I've been a bit more active politically as well since the U.S. currents state of affairs happened, though I missed the women's march due to a lack of a ride. I have participated in some other protests, though. I'm glad to hear you've found a passion in standing up for this country, it really needs people like that right now.

I haven't really changed much in the past few months. I'm still 17, so life is still mostly just school and work.

I went to California for a week recently for spring break. I've never traveled that far from home before, especially without my family. I enjoyed the experience a lot, and it helped me realize that the world is more than the state of Florida and i'm not as tied here as it seems. Plus, there were no oak trees there, therefore no pollen, so i could actually breath for a week :P

The biggest change for me recently is actually that I've been trying different medications. I finally convinced my mom to start giving me ADHD medication. Since then, I've begun to feel tremendously better in class. I used to feel as if there was a wall between my teacher and me preventing any of their lectures from teaching me, like it was actually impossible for any new information to enter my brain because it was already full. I finally feel that I am understanding what i'm being taught, and I'm very thankful. I've also just begun to take prozac for my social anxiety, but that only started today, so the effects have yet to be seen.

As for yet to happen events, I am actually going to Israel this summer for two or three weeks. I am jewish, but only culturally rather than spiritually. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to observe my culture in full force.

I hope to continue to hear from you guys. I check here every once in a while, but usually am too afraid to post. Even if I don't hear anything, I hope you're all still doing well. :)

I would love to see a No. 6 live stream! Please keep us updated with the details!

It sounds like none of you are having a very good time right now... I'm really sorry about what you guys are going through, I hope you all feel better soon. I'm I guess what one would call a pacifist, and feel it wrong to kill any life, but I do wish you luck with removing the wasps from your house, @kare_reiko

Forest Garden / Re: No. 6 related dreams
« on: September 08, 2016, 08:20:08 am »
I had a No. 6 dream the other day... I've never felt romantic attraction to another human being in my life but in this dream, as Shion looking at Nezumi... I was in a large crowd, as Shion, and turned around and saw Nezumi behind me. I felt an incredibly strong sense of attachment and longing and and abandonment issues. I ran to Nezumi and clung to him harshly, as if I was afraid that if I let go of him again he would leave me again. That dream really stuck with me, I've never really felt attachment to any human being before. It was odd...

Forest Garden / Re: Forum love and appreciation!

I want to give my appreciation as well. The No. 6 fanbase isn't very big. The few fans I meet have only seen the anime therefore don't understand how good the story actually is. It's especially disappointing since No. 6 is my favorite novel/manga and has been for years. Being able to talk with you guys, even on an infrequent basis, is an experience I can't thank you guys enough for letting me be a part of. Truly, thank you all for being here and letting us all appreciate this wonderful series together.

Shion's birthday really crept up on me this year... I might try drawing something small but we'll see.

@Weisel that sounds like a really good idea! I'm pretty new to cosplaying, but being able to get your guys' opinions on cosplay things would be really nice since you guys are people I trust. I also wish you luck with healing fast!

I hope you manage to get some free time soon... don't let yourself crash from the workload!

Somehow, my summer wasn't hot at all. Usually my state is known for its horrible Summers but this year we were fine while the rest of the country was swarmed in heat waves. weather is weird :/

School started again this week, and we got our first English assignment. I did it on No. 6... just goes to show you how deeply into this story I am.

The con I go to every year, Metrocon, is officially a week away! I'm really excited partly because I started my first full-time job this year so now I have actual money to buy merchandise with this year. Hopefully I'll be able to find some No. 6 stuff, last year I bought a print from one of my favorite artists, so we'll see if I can find anything this year. I'm especially excited because I'm doing my first actual cosplay there. I'm cosplaying as Kenma from Haikyuu!! and hopefully it will be a lot of fun. He, Oikawa and Iwaizumi are my favorites from the show. I can't wait to see how everything goes!

Latch Building / Nezumi's feelings for Shion and his personality
« on: June 16, 2016, 05:19:21 pm »
I felt that when shion touched his cheek he knew exactly what that was and what he was feeling, and that's what he was afraid of. He had let Shion touch him and that was a sign of affection, softness- weakness. So he went into denial after that.

Latch Building / Re: Nezumi's feelings for Shion and his personality
« on: June 14, 2016, 09:24:09 pm »
I definitely agree with you. Nezumi ran because he had been tied down by No. 6 for so long, and it was the thing that blocked his vision of Shion. He needed to look at the world as a whole and not just as how No. 6 affected it, and that applied to Shion as well. That doesn't mean that I think what he did was okay as to how it applied to Shion, but I understand why.

As for Nezumi's feeling for Shion, I think he was still in slight denial of them when he left. Maybe not on purpose, probably just in confusion. He had never experienced any level of love before, much less caring, so I doubt he fully understands his feelings.

@kare_reiko don't over exert yourself or in the end you'll be too exausted to get anything done. I hope you made it through your crazy Friday :/

Also, did you guys see that nezumiprefersdanielleovershakespeare deleted all of their works off of AO3 and tumblr and won't be writing fanfiction anymore? I'm so sad, I really liked their works a lot
