That really strange and sweet feeling when-
-you read a really well written reader insert fic that portrays a slow burn . . .
. . . and it reminds you of how nice it is to feel butterflies when you meet someone for the first time and get to know them better . . .
. . . and how fun it can be to develop a reltionship with someone who makes you feel happy and whose company you can't get enough of . . .
. . . and how they absorb your thoughts and you both do special things for one another and they become the focus of your life . . .
. . . and you also realize you really should stop dwelling on the pain you've felt and you're still feeling because if that person doesn't want to reciprocate your feelings anymore then they aren't worth the amount of care and affection you used to give .
. . . and you're better off without them because you can finally see that you are important to people even if you're no longer as important to them . . .
. . . because you are beautiful and lovable and you have friends and family who care about you that you care about as well . . .
. . . and basically for the first time in a very, very long time you start to love yourself again and realize your worth, and you feel your confidence coming back to you and you don't want to give up living . . .
. . . because you have a life to live with these people who have become important to you and you them and you want them to be happy and you want yourself to be happy . . .
. . . because you do matter and maybe it'd be okay to fall in love with someone again and finally move on . . . BUT YOU STILL HAVE A LOT OF WIP VENT THAT YOU'RE GONNA NEED TO POST SOME TIME BECAUSE THAT TOOK EFFORT AND YOU DON'T WANNA WASTE IT, DUDE.
