Me on October 2:
It's weird. I technically moved on to another fic site as my 'primary source,' but seeing Zilla shut down is like saying goodbye to an old friend forever. I left when Zilla's quality -- both in stories and site management in general -- really went down, but I'd still go back from time to time whenever I ran out of stuff to read. I remember I only made an account back then just so I could message an author of a fic I'd thoroughly enjoyed, until eventually I made stuff of my own (such trash shall not be disclosed) and even made friends. I've been in fanfiction for ten years now (!!!) and that all began with Zilla. I discovered several anime and a LOT the bands I ended up listening to in high school because of Zilla.
Fanfiction is fangirl fodder, and now I've had to say goodbye to the one site that introduced me to fanfics in the first place. Bye, Quizilla. Thanks for everything.
In more depressing news of departures, the Naruto manga's ending next month. I don't know how I am going to cope.
