The Last Ficly

Avatar Author: Abby (LoA) Gonna miss you guys so much. My 'official/professional' email is: in case anyone wants to keep in touch! Read Bio

I said I wouldn’t cry…

When I think back over the times I’ve poured my heart out on this site, I can’t believe I never considered a day when it would be gone. This place has always been more than a few pixels on my laptop screen and I’m going to miss it more than I can say.

Actually, it’s not the site. It’s the people on it; our little community. You guys feel like home. No matter how many times I drifted away, I knew Ficly would always be here. A safe haven.

I know that it’s time, and I don’t want anyone to feel bad about laying Ficly to rest, but my heart fucking aches and I just wanted everyone to know how much you mean to me. Even if we’ve never talked or interacted. You were a part of this thing. You were a part of something special that saved me in so many ways.

I was going to come back this September. I never thought I’d be leaving for good instead. All that’s left is to say I love you, I will miss you, and thank you. Thank you so damn much for everything. I wish you all the best in life.

    I’m touched, I really am. And I love you too, more sincerely than I could ever tell you using letters on a screen.

    Never stop writing.

    You have been one of my biggest influences Abbey! I couldn’t have done some of the things I’ve done on this site w/o your insight, advice, critiques. Wherever you go whatever you do, know that I’m with you in spirit. In a different world we would be neighbors. With sincerity, I hope all goes well for you.

    With Love,

    Abby, I remember nominating your poem, A Photo Album Day, for the ficly book back in 2010. I’m holding a copy right now in fact. There’s no shortage of love for you coming from this side of the Atlantic. I’ve been a fan of yours since way back. Thanks for the shout out.

    Who? Me? Like HSAR, I am touched. It’s been great. It doesn’t have to end here, though. I’ve got some ideas…

    I love you too. Please take care of yourself. Feel free to contact me for anything.

    No need to turn out the lights, just move them a bit. I have the skeleton of a rising-from-the-ashes site that I will announce tomorrow. Stay strong.

    I’m really going to miss the people I’ve come to meet here, and I hope we can regroup at I have been away with my own mental health problems, but I haven’t forgotten you all.

    You have been a literary light to me for the length of time I have known you. I too was planning a return in September. It seems the Google gods have dealt us a blow. I hope I may see you yet again on

    Take care!
