“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
-- George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
I have to tell you that I am a fujoshi.
Yes...my sweet dark hidden desire since I was 17 years of age. But you know what? I will no longer hide the fact that I am a fujoshi, because being a fujoshi means I believe in the impossible. A kind of emotional bond that is beyond words, society, and acceptance. A bond that makes me feel the greatest yet inexplicable emotions which exist beyond profit or benefit. I find it a refreshing contrast to the love stories told over and over again across ages. In it I find the will to fight for the rights, the stories worthy of recognition by all, but denied by so many societies of today.
That said, I have yet to write such a story.
But I am learning, experimenting, and hopefully, someday, I will be able to write a tale that can be told across ages and time.
