Well, it's nearly Christmas, the holiday that celebrates togetherness and life, so I thought it might be nice to show a little appreciation for everyone who's been supporting me this year.
Prepare for a very long list.
Alright then, let's get started~! ~231smarty
You've been my moirail for a long time now. You're supportive and encouraging, and having you around really brightens my day! But I also love how we can sit down and have serious conversations... it's very well-balanced.
You're an amazing artist as well. I wish I had a fifth
of your skill. (Any more than that would cause an immediate explosion of epicness that would probably destroy the world.)Your determination and loyalty to your friends is unparalleled, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~Quilaviper
Just seeing you smile and laughs cheers me up, no matter how bad my day was before. You've been nothing but kind to me, even when I've acted like a total jerk about stuff, and I can't even begin
to tell you how grateful I am for it.
Your random energy spreads like a virus, too- a good virus, of course. (Like Pokerus!) And I still can't sit through your breakfast story without it cracking me up. I'm even laughing as I think about it...
And don't even get me started on how well you can draw Pokemon. If I try to describe it, I'll never shut up again. Your cheerfulness and courage are truly amazing, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~nocturnalSleuth
Your randomness and creativity truly inspires me. Every conversation you've had that I've stalked
that has ended in shouting matches of kittens and PSHOOOES… it has some sort of epicness that I can't even begin to explain.
I should take up stalking as a hobby too.
And I have no clue how you learned to draw people/trolls/everything so well, but I have to say that every time you open your sketchbook, I literally expect a rainbow to fly out of it or something. It stuns
me how well you draw. Your focus and sharp wit are flawless, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~WildChaos30
Your cheery grin and love of the colour blue somehow gives you a hundred more layers of amazingness. You're extremely supportive of all of your friends, even when you're going through tough times yourself, and I think that takes a strength that not everyone has.Your support and devotion are impeccable, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~JGTIZON1998
Your humour has no bounds, and all the jokes we get to make during school keep me going through the class hours. I would have probably died of boredom if you hadn't brightened my day with all the puns.
And even in the face of saving seven billion people, you have enough pride not to comply with everything people tell you to do.
We both know what I'm talking about. XDDDD *shot x2*Your determination and perseverance are impressive, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~Lucariolus
First off, thanks for giving me the shout-out idea. I really appreciate it.
Your high energy and creativity really keep me smiling, and every conversation we have
even the ones that end in "wait, what were we talking about again?"
Also, you're one of the biggest reasons that EotDT survived this long. Without you pushing me to actually get things done, I would have probably scrapped it last year.
So keep up the great work and write more PMD: UO, you awesome son-of-a-buttertart.Your encouragement and quirkiness are truly empowering, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~unownace
Ace and Andrew,
You guys have been just as supportive as Nick has when it comes to my art. I can barely express my gratitude for that; without you two cheering me on, I think I would have probably moved away from the entire topic of Pokemon by now. And keeping on this course has taught me so much… I don't know what I would have done if you two hadn't been around to encourage me.Your support and fandom-referencing are wonderful, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~fenixcast
The first thing that comes to mind is the amount of role-plays we have going. How many is it now? Five or six? More? I don't even know.
You have such an inviting and happy nature, and your random comments really make me giggle. Looks like we haven't teamed up and destroyed the world yet, huh? Maybe tomorrow! Your excitement and unusual humour is just awesome, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~ChiiM0M0
"Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but my butt is mine, so don't take it, maybe?" *shot x3*
I haven't talked to you too much recently, but rest assured you are not forgotten on my list of awesome friends!
You're an extremely creative and amusing person, and if I had Skype I would totally message you and listen to every random thing you said. Forever. And then I'd write it all down and make it into a card or an interpretive dance scene or something.
But since I'm not that creative myself, this will have to do. Your randomness and confidence are inspirational, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. !JadeTheZoroark
Jade and Birma,
I may not talk to you too often, but I just want you to know that you are two of the most selfless and supporting Internet friends that I have. In the few conversations that we've had, I've discovered an immense joy that couldn't go unrecognized on this list.
Thank you two for everything. Every message you sent me helped me out so much.Your selflessness and caring are boundless, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~DarlingDetermination
I haven't known you for very long yet, but I must say that your happy attitude and fandom loving immediately made me want to be your friend. You cheer me up more and more with every message you send me, and I almost
literally cough diamonds and boonbucks whenever we talk.Your cheeriness and enthusiasm are unfathomable, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~FieryTheQuilava
You're a fun-loving and supportive person, and always show up with awesome comments at just the right time to cheer me up. I'm not sure if you realize how special our conversations are, but they're important to me. ^^Your courage and joyous nature are commendable, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. =Swiftalunar
Firstly, that mix-up with the oars has got to be one of the most hilarious things ever.
Now onto other things; you've encouraged my art for a long time, and I'm very grateful for it.
And your art constantly inspires me as well. If ever I need proof that artists can achieve great things, I just have to look at your profile.Your perseverance and outgoingness are admirable, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~MadnessOfMana
Your writing inspires me, and your friendly nature is simply wonderful. You've been kind to me, and you can really make me smile.
Keep up the wonderful artwork, too! I'm always awed by your skills.Your drive and confidence are exquisite, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~MistyDawnAmara
You were the first person who really got me into Homestuck. And thank you so much
for that; you have no idea how much I love the inside jokes!
You've been very supportive and helpful since I first joined deviantART, and I don't think I would have gotten this far without your encouragement.Your acceptance and calmness are radiant, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~Chozsmudge
You were my first friend on deviantART. We used to discuss our stories together all the time, and getting to know you warmed my heart and made me feel welcome here. Without your initial friendship, I don't know if I would have stayed on dA for very long at all. So thank you. I'm truly grateful.Your creativity and honesty are beautiful in every way, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~thatonetulip
Tulip, Dare, Petal, Jay, Domino and Checkers,
By rights, I should know all of you so much better…
especially Tulip and Petal, if you think about it *shot x4*
I really wish we could talk more, because I know that all of you harbour an inner amazingness that I can't even begin to describe. Your uniqueness and adventurousness are otherworldly, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~redandgoldshadow
You are, in general, one of the most epic people I know. The fact that you could do virtually anything with your time but choose to spend it making the rest of us happy is a gift nearly no one ever receives at all- let alone from a god! Plus, you always crack the best jokes. (But be more careful with the tea next time. We don't need another incident turning into a comic strip, now, do we?
)Your energy and excitement are uplifting, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~xXAshesOfBloodlustXx
Life's been tough for you lately, but the fact that you're still the same as ever shows a courage that I can't even pretend to rival with my own. Your strength and attitude brighten my day
even if that's not what you're aiming for. *shot x5* Your willpower and confidence are inspiring, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~rainingdove
You've been under a lot of stress, but the fact that you can still greet us all with a smile every day nearly brings tears to my eyes. I have no idea where you get your confidence from, but I just want you to know that it's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.
And I can't thank you enough for your help with everything. Without you, I'd know almost nothing of Shathra, or the rituals, or Shathri, or any other useful information. So you've taught me a lot. Thank you.Your inner strength and kind nature are endlessly appreciated, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas. ~castfromgrace
I could probably sit here all day and tell you how amazing you are. In fact, I could be here for the rest of my Christmas break doing so! But since I do have to actually celebrate Christmas, I'll narrow it down a bit and tell you the rest later.
You're the most supportive person I know. Ever. You never laugh at my ideas
no matter how stupid we both know they are sometimes
and you can immediately go from being joking to serious if I need someone to talk to.
I know for a fact that I wouldn't be who I am today without you. And I can't even begin to thank you for it… just know that I'll spend forever trying to. ^///^Your love and loyalty mean everything to me, and I'm proud to know you.
You're loved and valued. Merry Christmas.
… And I think that's everyone.
Merry Christmas to all of you. I love you all~!
