So, I’ve had this stack of fics that I’ve been putting off reading for one reason or another. One was over 300k, the other Muggle AU, another was creature!fic and a couple were darker than I normally read. But I wanted to give them all a go because they have all been recced and adored and I just feel like I am not really a full-fledged part of this little community if I don’t read all these gems, even if something about them gave me pause. It’s like my H/D shipper card is at stake here or something. So, one by one I’ve read them. Not one of them has disappointed me or even caused me to just say meh. I have LOVED THEM, just like I knew it would. And it makes me feel like I’m growing up with each one of these I read. Like it is maturity milestone for me. I’m getting so big!!

And now there is one. And this one haunts me. Probably literally and figuratively because it has MCD. And just thinking about it or reading the summary makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME. Like right now, there are tears coming down my face. Stupid fanfiction story I haven’t even read is making me cry at my desk. *tears* But I am going to do it. This weekend. The stars are all aligning and I will have the house to myself and I am going to STOP ALL THE CLOCKS so I can ugly cry for hours because I don’t have anywhere to be until evening. I can do it. Right?

So, why now? I mean there will always be stacks of fics I can read. I’ve only begun to scratch the surface. But that is the one story of Firethesound’s that I haven’t read. And FTS is like, my person. All Our Secrets was the first story I ever commented on on AO3, and she was the first person who friended me on LJ. I need to do this for my person! And for me.

BUT—there is also another reason I need to finish that stack this weekend. Because Glompfest starts posting and I’m getting Glomped! Someone out there spent hours putting words into sentences and sentences into paragraphs and built plot and developed characters and added dialogue and all in the hopes that I will like it! As a thank you for me being here. And reading stuff. Stuff that I do anyway because you all are awesome and Harry and Draco are awesome and reading is awesome. I don’t know if there is anything more awesome than that, AMIRITE?!?!?

So, I’m going to read Stop All the Clocks and then I’m going to get Glomped and then it will be a big girl. And I’m going to get my shipper card laminated and then no one can take it from me, no ma’am. <3
