I am going straight to hell. Eternal damnation, the whole bit.
"I didn’t have social media before; I got a twitter account for the show. I wanted to be a part of it I knew that it was important and a way to reach out to people and get that feedback. It’s a big part of it now because you get to see that instant feedback of how the show is being taken in and it’s been crazy. We’ve gotten fan art, blogs, apparently fan fiction that I have yet to read. But absolutely I think it’s a huge, huge factor in how the show’s been doing. I don’t think we would have known how big it’s gotten if it weren’t for social media and that online presence."
Here’s my take on high school. The reason it stays with most people is because: a) almost everyone goes through it and b) they all go through it with, you know, a lot of “firsts,” you know, your first car, your first love, first sexual experience, first cry-all-night-crash-and-burn breakup, first hate crime, first date rape, first drug use, first time being labelled, first time you realize you weren’t as rich or smart or fast or strong or pretty, or mean or physical or prudish or whatever everyone else seemed to be at the time. First time you realize it’s not what you are or who you are, but who they let you be. But here’s some other “firsts” high school could be: Okay… like the first time you held your head up and decided not to play that game, you know, or the first time you found the right words to say to the right someone who really needed to hear them. The first time you realized you were good at something, or that you cared about something enough to want to be good at it. The first time you shrugged off a label or a rumour, or an attack and just simply took the high road and let it go. Or the first time you decided to fight back.
"For those who seek to understand the deeper meaning of light and darkness and walk the middle road between them, understanding that without one, we would not know the other. Our path is of balance between the two."
