Ok, so my newest obsession is the beautiful and talented Dexter Fletcher.
i watched Band of Brothers when i was a kid (something me and my dad always had in common was our love for war films). i always had a thing for Dexter as ssgt Martin. but...when i watched it for..like the 100th time, i thought to myself "HELL! that guy is beautiful" and my O.P.D took over! like it does. needless to say i started going through my huge DVD collection to see what else i had with him in, Stardust! Lock Stock and two smoking barrels, Doom...
when i get like this, i find the best thing to do is draw! so i drew, started out on photoshop, trying to do sergeant martin, but gave up halfway through....i thought damn! you suck at this art crap! i got really depressed about it, i thought, hey maybe you just need a better reference pic, but apparently everyone wants to draw Winters or Spear...and loads of people drew Doc, damn near impossible to find a good reference picture of sarg, so of to twitter i went, moaning and huffing, "why is it so hard to find a reference picture of ssgt johnny martin....."
then! jesus christ, mother of god! have mercy on my soul, DEXTER FLETCHER REPLIED!! 
i thought to myself, im damned if im giving up now! Dexter Fucking Fletcher acknowledged you! this amazing actor who you've watched your entire life just messaged you and told you to go look on his instagram account! so off i go, i now have an account myself by the way! Kimshadowclaws, (GO FOLLOW ME IF YOU LIKE).
anyway, i gave the picture another go, i like it....kinda...but left it unfinished.
after that massive boost...of...i dont know...something...i went out and got myself some nice paper and drew Pinky from DOOM! and my god its actually quite good!! so i guess what im trying to say is, what may seem small and insignificant to some, (replying to a complete stranger on twitter) can actually make someone very happy! happy enough to make someone who was on the border of giving up something she has done her hole life! try again, 
so if you get to the point that you feel like giving up on your dream, dont, keep at it, you never know what will happen, you could even get a reply from one of your favourite actors!
