I'll always be happy as long as I have my characters. No one can take that from me. I've built up such a big family of OCs in my head, every one of which, faces both familiar and new, I can't wait to show you all when the time is right.
Sometimes I wish I had a much bigger audience, for me to show my treasured and beloved creations with. An audience to give me feedback on them. An audience to enjoy them.
Yet at the same time, parts of me doesn't want that. There are parts of me that want to just keep these characters secret, for myself. Every one of them I've put a little bit of myself into, and they are my outlets, my vessels. I daydream all the time about them, about ideas for them, storylines, character developments, everything. Sometimes I just want to feel and experience hem in my own mind. Thinking about my characters makes me so happy. Every one of them is absolutely precious in my eyes, and I wouldn't trade them for the world. I will die with my characters.
No one can take that from me.
