It is time for me to make my escape.
After two and a half years, nearly 3,000 posts, this blog has reached the end. Earlier this week I decided; I’m moving on from Tumblr.
I decided not to delete ofgriefanddust, because there are too many baby animal pictures and Stephen Colbert gifs and pictures of Nikolaj with dirty captions. But it will no longer be updated, and I am gone.
There is no reason to blog here any longer. Jaime and Brienne are likely apart for awhile. Lately Tumblr only makes me sad and frustrated and I want to be far away from it. I need peace and happiness in my life, and to focus on important things. I’m still trying to recover from two family deaths, one of which was sudden and life altering. I am still learning about myself but I know I am not the person some judge me to be: they don’t know anything about me.
To my followers and friends, I wish you peace. To the people I follow who have brought me laughter and shown me kindness, I wish you peace. The people who once followed me and left for any reason - peace. To the anons who sent hate - even you who told me to kill myself, and you who called me a c**t - I wish you peace. If we have butted heads or locked horns, I wish you peace. Anyone reading this, I wish you peace.
( am going to queue this to post again in a few days, for any of my followers who might have missed it.)
There are other ways to contact me, as some of you know.
Adios, Tumblr, and one last gif before I go:

At its root, that’s what makes Colbert’s relationship with his Report viewers more substantial than the standard comedian/audience dynamic. He’s the best — and for most fans, the only — improviser we’ve ever played with. He and his audience spent nine years in a joyful conspiracy, and fans are fully aware how unlikely it is to ever be replicated…
