What the heck am I doing poking around here again....
January 2017 edit:
I... miss these days?
November 2014 edit:
Man, this post is perfect.
Is anyone still around from the "Golden Age" of Codebearers?
Back when the RPGs were quality..
...and some of us were obsessed with them.
Back when Mike tried... and failed.. to train quality RPs?
When exclusive RPGs were all the rage...
...and when drama ran rampant among the "cool kids"?
When Bladebearer was everyone's big sister...
...and everyone made a big deal with every time Mike decided to leave... and come back.
When we thought we tried to build quality relationships online...
When I almost got banned.
When Andy always got banned.
In a way, I'm sad I grew out of this site.
Some of my best and worst memories of "tweenhood" happened here.
But now, I'm old. A lot of us are. We have "real" lives, and can no longer escape them like we used to.
Wow, it's really turning into a party here isn't it?
Oh dear...what have I done...
Hey wait, I thought you said you were leaving the thread, Ariel...
What was this topic about again?
Ah yes, we were reflecting on the Golden Age. We seem to have strayed so let us return to the glorious memories of the past. *stares off into the distance dramatically*
Ah, it would be nice to reflect back on the glories of the past
thou I cannot, for I wasn't apart of it for long until the Cold Age came along.
Though the memories bring a longing for a time to come again where marvelous battles, and tales take hold and cause one to be lost from realty. ...until the dreaded call of homework is heard...
Ah, the Cold Age. Not yet frozen, but cold. Where beings still terry away to keep the strand of life alive.
(All that is meant to be read with a sort of old English and dramatic tone.)
Thou hast ruined my grand soliloquy...
You jest. I hear no music. Words cannot emit such noise so your efforts are futile.
Farewell young maiden.
...poor soul, you must be delusional for the music is still not to be heard nor do you possess the power of making it be heard at such a fair distance across the wide web of the internet. Thus it must be forever playing in your own mind. Such a sad fate that is.
Ah, I do enjoy these little word jousts.
*Grabs a hand full of Mickaelyoda's popcorn and starts munching*
Remember when school didn't matter enough and we could spend endless hours on this site? Or when work started getting boring and we'd end up back here? And now actual careers and university educations later... here we are. Hello 2017!
I mean I was just so socially awkward I couldn't make friends with anyone who wasn't at least 300 miles away from me, but y'know, whateves.
