Happy Birthday, Abby!
Welcome to your birthday blog!
I wanted to show you some love on your birthday! you are a member who is unforgettable since coming to hpft. you have graced us with some beautiful, raw and powerful stories unlike anything we have seen before! I admire your strength, conviction and spirit that you possess which you've shown time and time again. You've personally empowered me to pursue new projects and shared kind words when I've been feeling low so I wanted you to know that you're loved on this special day!
here is a birthday picspam for you!

You're a wonderfully talented writer, and your stories never fail to make me think and motivate me - and what's more, your stories are a true reflection of the sort of person you are in real life, too. Kind, generous, brave and fiercely principled - I've loved getting to know you over this last year and being able to call you a friend. Not to mention you're the restorer of Gryffindor's lost marbles (or perhaps the keeper of them - we did a fairly good job of losing them again in the House Cup finale, didn't we?), a leading Gryffie, wonderful staffer and just a lovely member of our community. I hope your day is as brilliant as you are!

I had heard so much about your amazing writing, and everything I've read by you has indeed been wonderful, but getting to meet you in person really made me realize how lucky we are to have you as a member (and staffer!) on HPFT. You welcomed us so warmly and were honestly such a fun person to spend the day with. And it only took a short time for me to realize that the strong convictions I love in your writing are also principles you act on courageously in your own life. I have so much admiration for you, and I count myself lucky to call you a friend. Wishing you the most wonderful birthday and an uplifting year!

You were one of the first people to talk to me on the site, and I've always really appreciated your kindness and support. You are always willing to answer questions--however obvious they are--and to offer encouragement about writing and life. You are such a lovely person and I'm so glad to know you.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!

My dearest, beautiful Abby,
on this fine Saturday of September there are a few things I would like to say to you...
The first is
The second is how much I love and appreciate you! You are such a strong and brave person and I admire you so much for your compassion, your will to stand up against injustice, your passion and care in everything you believe in. I wish I had that spark!
I love you so much, and I'm incredibly grateful that we happened across each other's stories and became friends through our massive swap. Visiting your lovely city and spending some time with you this summer has been so much fun and I really hope we'll have another occasion to meet IRL again soon! (Maybe next time we'll share a Midsummer Night Snack in Italy... What do you say? )
To cut it short, you are wonderful and I hope your special day will be just as wonderful for you!
Big snowball hug,

you're one of the loveliest people i've met on hpft. your convictions, your feminism and the sense of right and wrong are impressive, and the way you express them through your writing is one of the things i admire the most about you. i think that all of the stories i've so far read by you have been incredibly empowering and i love that about them.
i hope you have a wonderful and happy birthday!

happy birthday to an incredible author, activist and inspiration. the last year wouldn’t have been the same without you, your evil genius and devious mind, our secret plotting and, of course, your wonderful stories to fill it. so, my partner-in-crime, i hope you have an amazing day!
all my love, deni
(now away and have yoursel’ a good yin before you get way too auld )
before you go - here is a birthday riddle!
The first hero amongst many,
a slayer of monsters,
though heart was heavy.
Set between the lake and the mountains,
My disputed parent, hailing from the island.
Born from a tall tale full of arrogance,
I conjure a flicker of permanence.
so cheers to the birthday girl!
