A meme I just couldn't pass up  
I've seen this on a few different LJ's so, I can't give anyone credit.

Pretend for a minute that the only contact you have ever had with me is through my fic. We've never exchanged LJ comments or emails, never hung out in chat or on YM, never talked on the phone or met each other in person, none of that stuff. The only thing you know about me is the kind of fic I write.

What kind of person would you think I am? How would you describe my attitudes and opinions about real-life issues? Or, to use the rephrased question:

Based on the way I write my characters, and the way they speak, think, and behave, what would that say to you about my attitudes and opinions about real-life issues?

OK...lemme have it!

You probably know already how I will answer this... *hugs*

I don't read much. Too busy writing! ^^
But you snared me with P&C before we ever really knew each other...

You are someone who feels very deeply and has the gift of expressing those emotions through your stories and characters. You do so in a way that at times is not easy to write, nor to read. But makes us, the readers, think hard about real life. At least, those of us with the maturity to reach through the events on the page and into the motivations and actions and reactions of the characters.

You convey the truth of sexual abuse and how it can destroy one's soul. You understand the pain and wretchedness and lack of hope the victim feels and force us to see it too. Maybe part of you feels a sense of duty as a writer to ensure people fathom just how destructive such abuse can be?

You believe strongly in what you create, because as a reader, I can see how hard some of it must be for you emotionally. This means you are a brave soul, willing to stand up and point and say LOOK! Even when so many would rather turn away. That takes courage.

I admire you.

If you want to screen this comment, please do. I didn't hold anything back...

*Is completely floored*

Wow...I mean, wow. I don't know what to say...I'm so touched by your words. What you said is everything I could have ever wanted from people who read my stories. I was so deeply saddened when I became aware of those out there that had twisted my words and motivations into something so completely opposite of what was intended. It really hurt. And your support at that time was so uplifting. You really are a beautiful person and a wonderful writer in your own right. I really can't thank you enough. *hugs*

And you should read some of my other stuff...even if you aren't familiar with the fandoms^^ There is some more angst, but there is also some light-hearted stuff, and smut...there is some smut too ^__^
