Okay bear with me here, because this isn't going to be as long and inspiring as other people's stories I'm sure. I'll freely admit that my art's not all that great, and I'm frequently frustrated that my skills aren't good enough for me to express myself properly. But that's not what this story's about.
See, it was through deviantart that I met my closest and bestest friend, Kinicha
. And it all started last November with this:
We are all just processors... Part 1 To: Familiar@z-mail.norf
Hi. You might wonder why you have recived this message. Don't worry, I'm not stalking you! It's the Type-in-a-randome-mail-adress-and-write-them-a-letter-challenge! Yeah, sounds dumb, I know, but don't be mad, I'm a really nice guy. I work at a resturant, not a chef but I'm the guy that peal stuff. I like books, but most people think I'm weird since "books are out" and NO ONE reads anymore, at least nor physical boks. What can I say? I just love the feal of a book. Okay, enough about me, this challenge was ment to brighten someones day, since who doesn't love getting mail? Now this is your challenge, it's not hard, just go out and make someones day better. Have a great day!

It's an early story of hers, and she already had about twenty parts up when I found it, but I was interested and I started reading. I left some comments and she replied. I wound up following the whole story and we continued to chat after that.
It's been almost nine months since then, and I'm making plans to fly out and visit her as soon as my passport comes through. She's been there for me during some pretty rough times and she's pretty much been my rock.
Not a day goes by when I'm not thankful we met, and I have deviantart to thank for that. So, like I said, my story's not very long and it's not very inspiring, but there you go. I've grown as a writer thanks to Kinicha
's constant support (as well as the other friends I've since made) and that means a lot to me.
So thank you, deviantart, for giving me my best friend.
And happy 14th birthday!
