I’m Retiring from the Thomas the Tank Engine Fandom

I’m sick of it all. I quit. I came here out of admiration, appreciation. The first time I laid eyes on Thomas the Tank Engine—that perfect azure coat, the gentle curve of the wheels, the soft yet piercing smile on that round, round face—I knew he was perfect. And things […]

Dear 106A Section Leader: Karel Took My Virginity and I Think I’m Falling for Her
