There's five million reasons to be hopeful in this world. And all of them are to help kids.

THANK YOU GAMERS.

I wasn't sure where to put these. The Gay thread, or the thread of Win, or of Soothing Cuteness are all potential candidates. But I felt like here was a strong compromise for all of them.

Cross-post it and maximize the exposure so that some people who follow one thread but don't follow others will still see it and be heartened by it. :D

You reminded me that this thread existed, so I'm bringing over something I planted securely in Win:

This is win, awe and hope all wrapped up in one heartwarming package.

Edit: Sorry, didn't realise that it's the same video Hosk just posted. Have cross posted it to Awe and Win anyway.

Okay. Someone asked me how I feel about writing fiction in a world that still needs actual activism and hands-on work to make life better. They said something similar to, “I get pulled away from writing fiction because I feel guilty for not making tangible benefit to the world. Isn’t fiction just escapism?”

But I also got the following message, which I’m filing some of the serial numbers off of, as it were:

“I just wanted to tell you something. When I was 18 years old, my life was a fucking mess. I worked at a store that sold comic books and one day I stumbled upon Spider and the filthy assistants. Your comic kept me from killing myself. There is a character limit here so I can’t say everything I want to but thank you. From the very deepest part of my heart.”

I post this not to self-aggrandise. It is not a unique message, for good or ill. I get them surprisingly regularly. Frankly, messages like that scare the hell out of me, because I’m not very smart and not a very clever writer and I fuck up all the time.

But fiction speaks to people. Even fiction like mine acts to tell someone, somewhere, that they’re not alone.

You want tangible, social benefits to writing fiction? There are people walking around today because other people wrote words that spoke to them. That’ll do.

And thank you.

For someone who is "not very smart and not a very clever writer" and fucks up "all the time." he got that one nailed beautifully, eh? :mrgreen:
