Dear horror fandom,

Thanks for being there for me back in 2013. After everything I experienced, it was just really cool to get into a more laidback sort of mood. You have an amazing sense of humor; some of the stuff you post is absolutely hilarious (even if it means that I may never look at certain characters with a straight face ever again), and you've gotten me into things I didn't think I would get into otherwise. Stuff like the Halloween franchise which, when I felt that things got really bad, honestly helped me through some tough times. (And gave me awesome new characters to love, like Laurie Strode, Jamie Lloyd, and so on) It sounds like an odd choice to help someone through bad times, but for me, it gave me something to get excited about and to get involved in. And that's what I needed most. Getting into Stephen King, too, helped me through some tough times. And discussing the books on Reddit was a joy in the roughness that was 2016 -- just talking about how underrated The Tommyknockers is, for example, and gushing over how awesome Alan Pangborn is (because he's one of the coolest characters King has written) was fantastic.

You write fantastic meta as well -- I know that one bit of meta about Rob Zombie's Halloween II actually summed up why I love the film (yeah, I know). And this little piece about Halloween 4 and 5. Just to name two. If you go searching for good horror meta, you'll find quite a few gems. And your videos! By God, when you get creative, you are absolutely fantastic.

So, in short -- thank you, horror fandom. You've brought a lot of good memories here and have really helped me through some rough patches. And for that, you are awesome.
