        By which I mostly mean “we’re not all that bad, I swear!”

        But seriously, Honey & Clover (the anime, not the drama) is pretty much my favorite show ever. That’s not changing.

          You know, I come here for the fantastic discussions and especially the incredibly well thought-out politics. I tend to picture everyone as being… I don’t know, mature? Normal? (Whatever that means.) Like some Sunday afternoon roundtable on PBS or something.

          However I read the site with images turned off so I can’t see everyone’s Gravitars. I only tend to see everyone’s well reasoned words. It isn’t until moments like this that I remember that the League and its community is full of people who are one of us.Report
