Don't know about the dee-luxe apartment in the sky (that always sounded like a euphemism for death to me!) Just to another account on DA, but I hope all my new DA friends will take note and stay in touch!
Because I have had indications recently that someone has appropriated my name as fullmetalfemme, I have decided to leave it behind and adopt a new name. Since I am still relatively new, only registered on a few writers' sites, and have yet to post any of my works, this seems like the time to do it, especially since I hope to post my first fanfiction story (or maybe two or three?) in the next month or so.
DA will not let you change the name on existing account so I have had to create new a new one with the new name - I will let the old one stay for a transitional period and cancel it at some point, as soon as possible.
My new name, with props to my beloved Saiyuki character
who allows me to use her image as my avatar, is helliongoddess, and my new email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for how kind, welcoming, and supportive you have all been to me as I have stumbled and fumbled my way into this wonderful new world online of Anime and Fanfiction.
I cannot tell you how much enjoyment it has given me so far and how much difference having this new interest, not to mention the great new friends I have made, has made in my life. What an amazing surprise, at my age, and having a 27-year-old daughter, to become so completely involved in something like this. I am having one helluva lot of fun, and I truly learn something new every day, which I truly believe are both among the secrets of staying both healthy and young in one's later years. :balloons:
So my deepest gratitude to all of you for helping make it possible, because I truly couldn't have made it this far without you, and I look forward to getting to know all of you so much more in the future.
