  1. Gotta say my new profile pic is pretty great. Aannnnyway, y'all should go check out my newest forum post! :D

  2. Hi, it's Greg here. A little while ago, I put in a request to change my username.To explain why I did that, I'll tell you all a little story. To begin, I'll say this: I've missed this place. Once, a long time ago, this was where I could come to be myself. I was alone and I didn't know who I could trust, I didn't know who I was, and it was here where I found what I had been looking for first. This website and the stories and the people that lie within are part of what has made me the person I am today, because it was them that allowed me to look further within myself to begin to accept me for who I am. I once was a scared little boy who thought he was going to hell for being different. I used to even think God was testing me, and I was failing miserably. Today, I am so, so different. I have confidence, I have pride, and I have joy; all of these simply because I can be the person I am. While nothing is ever perfect, I am a step up from the scared, confused young man I was those years ago. It's taken me time to get to the place I am at today, but in the past few years I have become a person I am proud of. I'm lucky enough to be going to college, I have a family who ended up being a lot more accepting than I thought they'd be, and I have the best friends anyone could ask for. My new nickname happens to be "Old Greg" after the character from "The Mighty Boosh", a show I've actually not even watched myself . My "new" friends that I've been friends with for many years at this point call me that, and it's a name that gives me joy. As for this website, one could say that I owe it my life. This is where it all started, and where the bad ended. September 17th, 2012; the day I first posted One Day, is the day that I stopped cutting. It's been more than three years, and it all started with a press of a button. Those of you who were there when I posted that, whether you helped me edit the original, or whether you gave me feedback, or even if you simply told me you liked it; you saved me. It was the posting of One Day that began to turn my life around. So while purpleweeniepill was where I started, Old Greg is where I am now, and it is Old Greg that I want to be . PS: I could go on and on about what happened in the years since I posted One Day, but that could take a while .

    Ok, so honestly, as much as I'd like to read this story again and again for free, I think you should actually try to get this published because this is one of the greatest stories I have ever read in my entire life. I've related so much to the characters and I feel that each one of them has their own powerful personality. In most books, this doesn't work, but you, Mr. Todd, have made it work. You've created something that goes beyond just an average story and into the realms of a true classic that could appeal to more than just the great folks here at GA. Honestly, you really should publish it; I would do everything in my power to buy a copy and I would tell anyone I know that would listen to buy it and read it themselves. You've created a true masterpiece here, Mr. Todd. So congratulations, you've more than earned it.
  9. Hope your holiday was smashing. Or hugging, or what ever you're into. :)

    Chapter 6

    I really enjoy the soul searching you've got Billy doing in this entry. It kinda makes me think about a lot of things myself to be honest. I have completely different scenarios and situations to deal with, but the whole re-evaluating his life part struck a note with me. Anyways, I always love your writing Comsie; there's always more meaning to it than meets the eye.
