Hello all! It’s Rynne again. Before I had written my first guest post, I had been asked by Ellie to write a post about our Friendship. With the little amount of time we have known each other, this is what I had to say.
First Guest Post: https://elliemae21.wordpress.com/2013/11/10/guest-blog-1-rynne-harrison/
I was asked by Ellie to write another guest post, and talk about how we met and our friendship. Well, I’ll try my best. She has no idea what I’m going to put down. So, Ellie, I hope I do you proud with this, my friend. I love you.
At holiday time, you’re supposed to become more introspective, and I’m no different. I’m taking the time to reflect on what’s happened this year, and one of the brightest spots was meeting a young woman who is so inspiring, so kind, and so courageous. To me, she is the Bones to my Kirk, my friend, my sister, my soulmate (Friend and Sister-wise).
I first met Ellie when I reviewed a story on the Star Trek: 2009 thread of FanFiction.net. I thought she had such afinity for the characters that I wanted to read more. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, Ellie and I met because of Star Trek. I had also written a story on the thread and posted a note on my profile that I was looking for an editor or a beta for my story. She messaged me saying that she would like to take a project on. We started messaging back and forth. Then, I think we both got tired of waiting for the message to go through. She asked me if I would web-cam with her, and reluctantly I said yes. Ever since that night, six months ago, we’ve been fast friends. We finally met back in September. It was like meeting a sister that I never knew I had.
I don’t make friends easily, but Ellie has been there for me through thick and thin. She has patched me up so many times in the months that I’ve known her, that I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for her. She has seen me throw things across the room, heard me say the most infantile things, helped me deal with my mother’s illness and my father’s inability to deal with life. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve told each other secrets that we wouldn’t tell anyone else. For once, someone knows me, the real me, and I wouldn’t change it in the least.
She has given me the courage to follow my dreams, go back to college, and pursue my passion for writing and acting. She has made me want to experience my life and be a better person, and for that I am honored to call her my friend, my sister, my Bones.
