It belatedly occurs to me it's odd I never said anything about this here, so:

I'm reading pretty much ALL the posts about OTW elections, and I've been bowled over by the support and the many positive mentions I've received for my candidacy. I'm not commenting much because I feel like an empty skin under this ID -- a simulacrum without a verifiable history outside of the OTW context, and commenting under my fan name without acknowledging the connection* seems slightly disingenious as well. Catch-22.

So I wanted to take this late opportunity (literally the eve before the elections) to thank everyone who expressed their trust in me. It means the world to me, and it has both humbled me and given me a lot of hope, either way this turns out on the 19th.

Thank you.





*(PM me if you'd like to know. Sadly, it's not very exciting: still not secretly a BNF! :D)

I'll have to find a way to make a OTW cake if you get elected, hon!!! :D

(yes yes I bake a lot *points to facebook album* but never made anything "written" on a cake so not sure how to go LOL)

I have also run into this dilemma. I want to comment to my friends under the name they know me by, the one that feels real and right for fandom.
