I’m completely wiped out from an amazing Thanksgiving dinner with my family. I’m so thankful for my awesome sisters and parents, my *incredible* girlfriend, my perfect son, and you.
And I’m thankful I get to be me. It wasn’t always this fun or fulfilling, but it truly has been, this year. Thanks so much to every single one of you who lets me feel special for reminding you of how truly special you are.
You’re the only you we are ever going to get, and I’m so very grateful that you’re here with us.
Hey Dean, is there any essential back episodes you'd reccomend before Day of the Doctor airs? Besides from everything after the series was brought back.
Personally rewatching Rose, The Parting of the Ways, and Doomsday. I’m not particularly fond of these episodes, but I’m trying to get my head around the connections between 8.5 and 9, the Time War, and refresh my Rose memories.
I’m so excited about today. Picked up Who-themed snacks for me and Ace to have later when we watch The Day of the Doctor.
To everyone who has read or shared my "secret origin" story...
I love you guys. Thank you for sharing your stories with me, publicly or privately. I’m heartbroken that so many of us have faced crimes no one, especially children, should ever be confronted with, but I’m proud of all of you for finding a way through the darkness, whatever that path was (or still is).
Anyone close to me would tell you I’m typically bright and silly and upbeat, but there’s always going to be the underlying anger that these crimes still happen. The only thing we can do is be our best selves for the sake of those around us. I’ve been all over the world and seen things that made the horrors of my own life seem small, and while every cut leaves its mark, it’s our inner lives where the shards continue to rend. Pulling them out is the only way to recover. Telling my story helped me do that. I hope sharing your stories with me has helped you in that same way.
As children, we feared the dark, but the emotional darkness in the world is made and remade by people. Well we’re people, too, but we’re going to shine our signals until the darkness fears us. Thank you for sharing my story and helping to spread the light.
