It's me, Rainy, who most of you probably don't know/remember now. I haven't logged onto WFW in forever, but for some reason yesterday I found myself going through a couple of my old 'fics and I thought I should probably make this. I don't want to vanish without a trace (though I admit that's basically what I've done).
I'm not really on the wiki anymore. I have been mildly re-inspired to maybe finish a couple of old stories, just for my sake and because I miss writing. I don't know when/how fast I'll be able to do it, because life is going to be insanely busy when college starts, but I will definitely try.
Some random life updates. I'm not thirteen anymore, like I was when I first made this account. I'm twenty. I'm a junior in co…
Good day, fine peoples of WFW!
'Tis I, Rainy, and while I may have truly lived up to my claims of being a unicorn by being so rare for so long, I'm actually here for once!
Wow, it's been a while. Also, to be honest I'm kind of salty because I meant this blog to come out on my five year wiki anniversary, which was about a week ago (July 28th). But hey, now I can say I've been on WFW for over five years! Over those five years, I've made some of the best friends I've ever had. I've literally known some of you for years, since before I was even in high school. And I've met some amazing newer users -- you guys are so fantastic and ten times more mature than I was when I first joined (probably more mature than I am now, to be honest).
Boy I have missed you guys. A lot. It feels weird to be back on here; it's like coming back home after a very long time -- even though it hasn't been that long and that's a really cheesy analogy.
Unfortunately, I'm not here to say that I'll start being more active again. I'm just here to explain why I can't for a while.
In case you don't know me, hi, I'm Rainy. I try to be a calm person, but I fail by astronomical proportions. Basically, I'm saying that in case you're reading this going, "you can't spare a few minutes a day to check in on your stories for a website about cats?" No, I can't sometimes. It makes me feel even more anxious about all the things I should be doing but am not.
I'm a senior right now, and in addition to tak…
Guess what today is!
Today, July 28th, marks my fourth year anniversary on the wiki!
4 years! That's a crazy long time, it feels like. So much has changed in my life since then, but WFW has been a constant all that time.
I'm so grateful for this place, for the way it grew me and inspired me as a writer, and of course, for you guys. To other people it might sound crazy that a fanfiction wiki devoted to a series about cats impacted my life so greatly, but of course it's true. This website introduced me to the concept of actually putting my writing out there -- previously I'd just saved it in remote Word files, usually forgotten about for months at a time -- and having people, even just one other reader, respond to my stories live, givi…
Unfortunately, 'tis that time of year, the time when all of us mean admins collude with each other and plot how best to ruin your lives: with a story stop!
Just kidding. Story stops are a bit of a bummer, but it's essential that we have some time to go through the wiki and clear it up a bit. In case this is some of you guys' story stops, here's the run down: no one creates any new fanfics. No new pages. Nada. Pretty self explanatory. Admins have to go through and delete stub/spam, and for you guys, I'd recommend going through old fics, making sure they're categorized. If you want anything deleted, feel free to drop an admin a message! (Just be aware that it'll be one story on a long list, so be patient with us!)
AGAIN: NO STORIES, NO…
