I was going to mention this in the Temptation podcast post, but I realized it really needs to be stated in its own post.
I was thrilled to hear my friend mozzer0906 (pronounced like mozzarella, btw) mentioned in the slash discussion on the podcast. Mozzer is known IRL as Shannon. I've known her since long before Twilight became part of my life; but I can say with certainty that we bonded as a result of Twilight, and my friendship with her has become a daily constant in my life.
Let me share with you some of the reasons I love her. Shannon is one of my go-to people for writing. If I hit a roadblock, she is unfailingly there for me when I need to hash something out. She has a way of dissecting a story arc and making one or two little suggestions, and it just opens up the story for me. I visualize her contribution as though she's tapping gently on a non-descript looking rock, and it falls into two pieces to reveal beautifully-coloured crystals on the inside - the effect is that profound.
Shannon also the queen of the Twilight online world - I swear, I wouldn't know half the times OTT is mentioned on the net, outside of Twilighted and FF.net, if not for her. Add to that, she supplies a daily dose of Robporn to our little group of Twilight friends and adds a hot, delicious helping of Jackson just for me. She is my number one cheerleader, and I have to tell you, bbs - I'm a pretty big fan of her too. xoxo She is wickedly funny and endearingly verbose, and we are so much inside each other's heads it's not even funny.
Thank you for everything, bb. xoxo
