Fan Letter Friday (26)

This is Fan Letter Friday. All the time I see nice, special, kind and good authors on twitter, facebook, their own blog, etc. that I make friends with or follow on accident and I adore them. I like them as more than authors. I like them as people. So, I decided, since I don't have time to review every single book these people have written, I'm going to write to them. I am going to flaunt my love for them all over the internet and hopefully brighten their day. I am going to sound, insane, rambly and possibly like a stalker, but that's just part of the fun right?

Dear Naoko Takeuchi, (creator of Sailor Moon)

I have loved your manga for years. You're the one that got me interested in reading. It used to be a literally all out drag out screaming tantrum fight for me to read even a sentence. You've had a huge impact on me, as I'm certain you've had an impact on hundreds of thousands of other children for years.

Princess Serenity was all I wanted to be when I grew up. She was mature, lovely, had a beautiful dress, and she had Prince Endymion. I adored Mamoru, I wanted him to be the handsome prince that took me away from all the horrible things in the world. All of the Senshi were my role models. Rei, Setsuna, Minako, Michiru and Hotaru were all my major favorites, mainly because of their amazing hair. Makoto, Ami, Haruka and Chibi-Usa taught me to be tough and smart. Luna, Artemis and Diana always had my favorite names.

I just wanted to thank you for creating your wonderful series. I know that books, especially mangas are a labor of love, they are made for the person writing them, and usually not for other people. Still you had a profound effect on my life, even though I lived in America. I'm so happy to have read your mangas. So thank you, thank you, thank you, for making them.

Love,
