I’m not exactly sure how to say this… I guess I should start by saying that the title is actually a quote from a book I’ve read. From the sequel to The 13 Little Blue Envelopes. By Maureen Johnson.
All of you are saying that TAP is shutting down. Which I guess is technically true, since no one can comment on any zines or debates.
But since TAP is still here, they obviously didn’t shut it down completely. I did hear however, that they closed down their New York office. (I only know about that because I recently went to New York, and I wanted to visit them.)
When I joined TAP, I think I was only a junior in high school. I was always older than most of classmates. Not that much older, anyway. Maybe that’s part of the reason that I felt I getting too old for TAP. Since most of you are just starting high school, or in middle school, or something.
My name is actually, Alison. (For those of you who are new and don’t have Facebook page.) Everyone here was really awesome. When ever I had some high school drama going on, I could always come on here and try to forget that drama. (Just in case you didn’t already know, I live in America. Ohio.) I also want to mention that I have disability. (I won’t tell you what it is, though.)
Devonny: You were the only person I actually started to email. (Besides the administrators.) (Mostly because I thought everyone would think I was a stalker or something for finding out their from TAP zine emails.) I probably will email you later to tell you about my too-late message to TAP members. (I don’t know why I’m doing this about a month late, though. Maybe because I didn’t think they would not allow anyone to comment.) I might create a Wattpad again one day. Or maybe just create a Figment, or something. If I ever write a story. Which right now, seems unlikely. :D
Faith: I loved your personality. Whenever I wanted someone to comment on one of the word games, you were right there. You and your iPad. By the way, did you notice that I was the last one to comment on the Last Post Wins debate? Well, I guess that’s one good thing about not being able to comment, at least. :D You probably won’t agree with that.
Audrey_Horne: You were one of the people who made TAP happen. So, I think you should also get personal letter from me. Although, you probably won’t read this. I would’ve loved to meet you if I could. (I also would like to be involved in any websites in the future, that are similar to TAP. Would that be possible, Ariel?) Anyway, thanks for making me COTW. And thanks for letting me be a part of the Advisory Board.
TwilightMist: I’m not really sure if you will read this since I totally realize you haven’t been coming on here lately. (But maybe one of your TAP real life friends will tell you about my virtual message to you.) You were always one of the amazing artists on TAP. (And of course, you are an awesome writer.) It was an honor to be a part of the Advisory Board with you.
AmberDavis: You also probably won’t read this, but maybe. I remember one day I posted asking if you were ever going to get amnesia in the real world. Well, maybe you did. Since you haven’t been on in… months. I also remember you saying you had a job interview one day. Did you ever that job? (Whatever it was.) You always seemed so mature on the internet. Possibly, because you were older than me. Only a year. (And a day.)
Wow, this is a long, sort of goodbye letter. I didn’t really expect it to be this long. Anyway, I obviously can’t mention everyone, since I can’t stay on the computer forever. (Not only that, but I’m at the library.) Everyone on here truly did a wonderful job making TAP a great place for (mostly) teenage girls to write. Each and everyone of you are awesome.
Anyway, I guess this is it. I have a Facebook again. So, most of you can contact me there. I don’t have a Wattpad anymore, but I have been thinking of creating a new one. Once I actually write a story. I do have an email. I guess if you really want to keep in contact with me, you can message me on Facebook. Or talk to me on the TAP Facebook page. (You could probably guess which one I am.)
