I guess this has been coming for a long time.
So many incredible memories are attached to this account and this website, but it is quite obviously not my place anymore. I want to thank anyone and everyone who ever watched, looked at, read, commented, critiqued, or so much as glanced my way on DeviantART. This is closure for something that, in a way, faded in and made its presence obvious and heavy. I'm not surprised, and neither should any of you, of this parting with the community.
You can call this goodbye, if it makes you happy. I will not delete this account. I will not erase any of my journal entries, deviations, comments... Nothing. It is here and it happened, and I don't want anyone or even myself to so much as try to forget it. So thank you all, again, for making it a beautiful experience and sharing it with me. I hold you close to my heart.
