I am a veritable ball of fucking sunshine.
Thank you for the sweet words and for understanding the tone of the page.
As a personal note, it was about a lot of things — mostly about mental illness, because that’s something I deal with daily — and the absolutes (black and whites, as you said) that people still make out mental illness to be. It was also about simply being othered, whether that’s because of your brain weasels, your race, your gender, your sexuality, etc., etc.
The long and the short of that specific page was that no one is a “monster” just because of who they inherently are, and society is too quick to judge and be intolerant of others for their innate differences.
I hope you enjoy the rest of this Chapter of FindChaos, it will be a doozy.
There are so many major surprises coming very quickly down the road, yet they all come from a place of substance and foreshadowing. I’m so proud of K’s storytelling finesse and thrilled that our strange tale can hit such personal notes.
Lots of love to anyone who had a chord struck this week. <3
As for me:
