I heard of you exactly 6 years ago (end of January 2011) when I heard some of my classmates sing YBWM in a karaoke. I don't remember much else but I guess I liked the song so much I googled you and started listening to your songs. Next thing I remember is when in May I decided to look up if you were touring in Spain (my country) and I was heartbroken when I found that you had come less than a month before that and I had missed it (and you never came back, which makes this situation a lot more painful). Flash forward to when I spent that whole summer 2011 listening to your songs (mostly from the Fearless and Speak Now albums).
And here we are now, 6 years later. Many things have changed but one thing that hasn't is how much I love you, adore you and look up to you. You and your music have been there for me through it all. When I was laying in bed crying after fighting with my parents. When I was lonely after I moved out to a new city and didn't have friends. When I was sad and depressed when overthinking took over me... You've indirectly always been there for me, making me smile and laugh and dance.
I also want to thank you for introducing me to such a wonderful world that is the swiftie world. This fandom is truly incredible. I've met some of the best people I know here. Thanks to you and your music I met my best friend almost 4 years ago. Thanks to you and your music I met my boyfriend (he's a swiftie too, I'm blessed!!) a year ago. And met so many other people that I will always love and that keep a special place in my heart. And it's all because we have one thing in common: you. I am eternally grateful for that.
You know, we've never met. But I love you nonetheless and I know that someday we will meet and it will be the best day of my life (hopefully that day comes sooner rather than later). Can't wait to hug you real tight and finally be able to tell you how much I love you. And how much you've changed my life. I feel like I've grown up with you. Like somehow you helped me become who I am today. So thank you for that. You're like the big sister I never had and the best friend that everyone needs in their lives. You deserve all the happiness and love in the world and I hope someday you get it.
I wish I had the power to make everyone see how amazingly wonderful you are, inside and out, so they stopped hating on you for no reason. Because it hurts. You're the brightest and most beautiful start I've ever had the privilege of knowing. This world is truly blessed to have someone like you in it. You amaze me every single day. Your talent and your kindness are something from out of this world and I never want you to be sad. I know you don't know me but, if you ever feel alone or need someone to talk to, you have a friend in me. Forever and always.
On a happier note, I also want to thank you for following me on Tumblr almost two years ago (May 25th, 2015 #neverforget), probably one of the best days of my life. I remember I came home from school and I checked Tumblr and saw you were following me. I had to check a few times to verify that it was actually you and not some fake account and that it was actually happening!!! And then I legit just sat in my room crying for like 2 hours. Thank you so much, really. It probably doesn't mean that much to you because there's so many of us. But I swear to you it means the world to us, something as simple as a follow or a like. To us is a sign of you "knowing" who we are and that we love you and somehow, acknowledging our existence. It's really emotional. Thank you also for liking one of my posts and a few I had reblogged. You rock!
Thank you for being the best role model, idol, I could ever have asked for. You're literally the best. Thank you for always being so caring and nice to us and for loving us as much as we love you and for being grateful and going the extra mile for us. I really appreciate it. You're a freaking ray of pure sunshine.
I apologize if this letter sounds too cold and formal. I guess I was just trying to make a good first impression. I'm nice, I promise. Not as nice as you probably but who is.
I just realized that I haven't said my name at all, so here's a little presentation: my name is Marina. I'm 19 years old and I'm from Spain. If you ever want to find me on social media, my Tumblr is @neverstopfightingdragons, my twitter is @fightxdragons and my Instagram is @marinaxmm !!!
I love you so much, Taylor, I really do. Hope you're having a really lovely time. I hope we get new music soon (please consider the fact that we're dying and even just a 1 minute audio of you singing oh-oh-oh would be amazing). Hopefully, we can meet soon!! I love you so much,
