“I got a fan letter from a young lady. It was a suicide note.
So I called her, and I said, “Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan. Scotty, from Star Trek.” I said, “I’m doing a convention in Indianapolis. I wanna see you there.”
I saw her — boy, I’m telling you, I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was definitely suicide. Somebody had to help her, somehow. And obviously she wasn’t going to the right people.
I said to her, “I’m doing a convention two weeks from now in St. Louis.” And two weeks from then, in somewhere else, you know? She also came to New York - she was able to afford to got to these places. That went on for two or three years, maybe eighteen times. And all I did was talk positive things to her.
And then all of the sudden — nothing. I didn’t hear anything. I had no idea what had happened to her because I never really saved her address.
Eight years later, I get a letter saying, “I do want to thank you so much for what you did for me, because I just got my Master’s degree in electronic engineering.”
That’s…to me, the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
I’m genuinely crying right now
I’ve heard this story before, but reblogging because it’s awesome anyway.

When your friend is upset and you don’t know how to comfort them
May 6th: Redesign
Danny Fenton/Phantom, Tucker and Sam
okay so, I actually have a lot to say about this. First off here is Danny’s design without text.
Good, well, I actually thought about those designs quite a lot. My little stupid notes there should hint that already. Anyway I didn’t really redesign the characters themselves a lot, more their clothes and overall appearance. I gave them more modern looks, more details and more (at least in my opinion) logic.
Danny would wear baggy clothing, because they hide bruises, wounds and such stuff. I could also imagine him to be some kind of person who likes to wear band shirts?? pssh yeah!
Tucker, well… I know he had some KIND of dreadlocks in the show, but really? No! Make them stick out! Also I have him a bit of an hipster appearance. His whole tech geek stuff just leads to it. Also yay for random smartphone I made up. Also tucker needs brown eyes. period.
Sam… oh god she was the horror… I only knew goth = corsets! All of my goth friends wear them, so! corset for sam. Then I mainly gave her the stuff to wear my mom wears… she… should know about goths. Sometimes she scares me with her black lipstick. BUT YEAH! Not enough goth in the show really! I know it’s about simplicity… but??? come on. Sam is a goth girl. They are beautiful! I love them heh.
Okay then Danny’s ghost half. Omg?? I already knew where I wanted to go with it. I needed to be GHOSTLY. Spiritual. Undead. HE IS A GHOST DAMNIT. And I like my ghosts scary as shit aaaa yes.
And I am pretty sure with all that power he got he can do all kind of cool things, like letting stuff float around him?? WHAT BACKBACK?
okay I think that was it…
