Stormismymiddlename ,

Thanks for the ride

This podcast has been such an important part of my life for the last few years. I know that may sound odd but I have never been so invested in a story or cared so much about a fictional character. Also as an asexual person it was a big deal for me to see representation. And seeing the fan response to asexual representation made me feel really accepted in a way I haven’t before.

Amazing

Enemies to lovers, 200 episode slow burn dying in each other’s arms trope

ßiø Häzärd ,

wow

ive been listening to TMA since around february last year, and this is by far one of the best horrors that ive ever been a fan of. every single aspect of this podcast is amazing, from the amazing horror, the heart wrenching tragedy, the wonderfully done character depth to the amazing antagonistic characters. i listened to the ending yesterday, and i do not regret sticking around for so long.
