As a kid, one of my favorite things to do was go to the library, and now it's like a I have a library at my fingertips of all things imaginable. There are so many talented authors here and I'm always grateful to have the opportunity to read their work.
I've tried a couple times writing my own fics but always end up feeling too embarrassed when it comes to the quality of my work because I think back to all the wonderful story tellers I've run into along the way here. Maybe one day I'll have the courage or feel confident enough to contribute to the community, but for now I'll continue to enjoy what others have shared.
Thank you so much to the authors here, you are truly a gift!
