A gift to us by Mkystich
Yes, sadly, it's true. It is with a broken heart and a grudging acceptance that we at Darkest Temptations realize our time has come to an end.
Real life sucks, and other obligations have made our lives go in different directions over the last several months. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but one that needed to be done all the same.
You all have given us a great two years. Some of my happiest moments in the fandom have centered around this blog, and the lovely girls I've had the pleasure to work with since it began. I think I can speak for all of us here when I say that DT was a place for family, not just friendship.
We never argued, we never disagreed, we never felt strife amongst us; which is rather odd coming from a blog of this nature. It doesn't mean we never had differences of opinion, just that the overall outcome of whatever issue we were faced was always agreed to be the same. That's a rare thing for a blog these days, and it never ceased to amaze me that we had such an awesome group of ladies working here.
I am proud of the girls that stood up with me (and not just the ones who worked here, but the ones who commented and subscribed and tweeted as well) and took a stand saying it's okay to read the darker stuff. It's okay to want to read fiction that others shy away from or even criticize. I am proud that we never saw drama in any form come our way. I'd like to believe that it was because the way we approached the darker fics, and we made sure to warn others when fics contained things that might be sensitive to others.
Or I could just be fooling myself into wanting to believe this blog is just that awesome. lol
Regardless, DT has always held a special place in my heart, and so have our readers, supporters and authors who gave us amazing stories that kept us up at all hours of the night; sometimes days at a time.
With this, I'd like to say that the blog will remain up, so if anyone in the future wants to come back and find a story they might not have read, or search google for the dark Twilight Fics, they can benefit from all the hard work that two years and six women put into this place.
We, however, will not be returning to do any more posts, but this place will remain in our hearts forever.
And now we say goodbye. Thanks again for sharing this experience with us. We will always be grateful.
With much love,
Izzy, Barbie, Steph, Gemma, Chipper, and April
