[An open post, but Apollo is Very Much Blocked from all her social media]

Last year was… a wild ride, a strap-in, roller-coaster, lose-your-hats-and-maybe-stomach ride, and there were parts of it that were so shit, and scary, infuriating, mind-bending, confusing, overwhelming, all of it, but ain’t we all tougher than all that? Fuck yeah we are.

This yeah, though, oh man, this year.

I gotta tell y’all. On New Years Day, me and Avery, we got married. It was a bit spur of the moment but ain’t the whole world just made up of moments, and it feels amazing, you know? (Aves, you’re amazing, the most adorable badass who ever badassed 🤠) And like, everything feels like a real auspicious start to a whole new year, one that’s starting off right, cuz unlike last year, I have a husband (haha!) and a father, and yeah ok the most nightmare women for a mother-in-law imaginable (oh my god you guys) but I also got cousins (and future cousin-in-laws, right?!) and uncles and aunts I never knew, and like always I got my best girl, my best girl, and this year, I feel like I know myself more than ever before, or at least I’m really, really starting to, and I love it.

So, like, bring on the year and the journey of self-discovery, right?

We're back in New York. Boy I'm tired. Even two weeks spent in cosy comfort hasn't fully recharged me yet, so I am going to be spending the next two weeks in my pyjamas watching all the awesome shows people kept telling me to watch and I had no time for. What should I start with? Squid Game has all the hype, maybe that?

Winter without Christmas decorations always looks super bare to me. Cold and grey without the lights to cheer things up. Luckily my apartment is all Christmas all the time, so. There's that.

Have a good rest of January folks. See you Feb!

If you wanted to go see Tuck, then you should. I won't be there.

I've been trying to think of what to say to you.

I've been trying to think of what I could possibly say to you that would even somewhat repair the damage that I've done. And even with all my time and all my thinking I haven't thought of a thing, because I don't think there's an answer. I don't think there are any magic words to take back the way that I hurt you. I have never ever wanted to hurt you, but I spoke without thinking. The only rash and thoughtless one here is me.

I should have showed you enough respect to say 'congratulations' and keep all of my doubts to myself. You deserved that. You deserved a hell of a lot more than I gave you. There was a reason that I was the only one in that post the others were yelling at and that's because I was the one that was in the wrong, and all our friends knew it.

I hope that you're angry and me and not at yourself. I hope you've been sitting there saying 'that Marian's a right fucking cow who needs to shut her trap' and not, I don't know, taking apart every word I said and turning it inward. I worry you are.

I know it's real rich of me to say I'm worried about how my words might have affected you, but there it is.

I wanted this to be very short so you didn't have to keep reading it.

Alright. I'm sorry for the things I said, and if I could go back I wouldn't say them. I care about you and I care about your happiness, no matter how it may have seemed. I love you, I have always loved you, I will always love you. And I completely understand if you don't love me or like me very much right now. That is completely fair. I don't love me or like me very much right now either. I have not proved myself to be very likeable or to be very fair to my friends. I am ashamed of the harm that I've brought.

I hope that one day, however it happens, you can find a way to forgive me. And please know that I do wish you and Clio and your child nothing but all of God's blessings and love. I was completely serious when I said that I will do anything in the world for a child of yours, whether I am part of its life or not.

We all okay out there?

I don't know who is up for it, but I have this moose here in the freezer, and tomorrow I'm turning it into chili. And I'm going to bake three kinds of bread and make some home made tortilla chips, and some guacamole and if any of you wanted to help me eat it, I'd be much obliged as there is going to be plenty.

And I'd really like to see you all.

[Since the doppelganger incident, Luna had been keeping something of a low profile when it came to her life back in New York. Still healing from the kidnapping (at least emotionally, as she'd asked Apollo to heal the physical scars), there was something to be said for being sent very far away, far from all those things that tried to haunt her.

The doppelganger shouldn't have gotten so easily under her skin- it had never hurt her, it had seemed just like Hermes, felt like him, was him according to the explanations Luna was given. Still, she felt like a shitty acolyte to not have realised.

And she felt violated (once again) knowing that it had all been a stranger and demon.

But Salem had treated Peitho and Luna well in their stay. Once Luna had spent a few weeks dwelling on everything, she let herself embrace and enjoy the city. There was such a charm about it, and it was so easy for Luna to pretend that maybe she belonged there perfectly. It suited her aesthetic, to a degree, although there were a lot more 'hippy witchy chicks' than 'goth witchy chicks' doing the tourist thing in town.

Luna plowed her way through both types though. She was equal opportunity like that. (Although Peitho, as always, was a little more prolific in her own plowing.)

But today Peitho had told her that they were going back home, and Luna felt something lift inside herself. It didn't matter how many beautiful women (and men) she fell into bed with here, none of them were her Lord. And she missed New York, missed how huge it was and how indifferent. New York didn't give a single shit about Luna and her well-being and that made Luna just want it more.

When they'd left the city it had been so easy to drop contact with everyone she knew there, to tell the people who reached out some version of 'I just need space right now'. But returning meaning picking those threads back up again, and she decided that the best way to do it was flippantly.

They say there's a first time for everything. This year is the first time I haven't wanted to leave Aspen. I enjoyed myself so much this year and coming home just feels like the loss of magic.

It isn't though. Because now I'm in the middle of packing up my room for another first. I'm moving in with the man I love. I never thought I would get to do something like this. I thought I would be single until the day I died, just living in Tinsel or Merry's attic or something. Just smoking weed and crying into my pillow. ...isn't that a wonderful thought?

I'm deciding what to keep and what to give away. I've never not lived in a family-owned place before. All of this is so new.

Here's to all the firsts that are coming our way soon enough.

So my classes start again on the 24th, and I am really looking forward to it. But I was taken from campus. And today I was just thinking about getting my books and I had a panic attack thinking about the parking garage. I hadn't even realised this was going to be an issue. I should have realised though. Literally the last time I was there, I was abducted.

Can someone or several someones come with me to campus next week? A trip there to remind me it's all going to be okay?

I guess nothing says 'new year, new me' like getting a restraining order against your own mother.

Honestly? I should have done this a long time ago, but she was - I thought - the only parent I had left. And after losing my dad so young, or so I thought, it made me cling to whatever tenuous connection we had. But she's been toxic nearly my entire life. My kids don't need that in their lives. And considering she alluded to taking them 'for their own good' or whatever in the fuck, if she comes anywhere near them ever again, she's going to prison.
