I just started publishing my first few fan fics on here and I felt a bit silly when I realized how incredibly cutesy and sappy they are ._. But I've totally embraced it If cute things make you feel happy than by all means, go for it!
And in response to previous comments I have depression too, its probably the most common form of mental illness, if not illness in general.
Art is a wonderful way to take control of it. Cheers <3
