so thanks for the memories.  
Hey, you!

Yes, you. Long time, no see, old friend. Do you remember me? I'm sure you do. I was that awful little roleplayer who liked to break character to talk about the weathe... oh, right, I forget, that was a lot of us here. What about all the one-liners? You must remember me! No? Well, I did play that violent redhead. No, not Lily, the other one. Yes, now you remember me! It's been a long time, hasn't it? Four years. Four years this month, in fact. It blows my mind, really, that so much time has passed. I'm surprised I even remember the password for this journal. Old habits die hard, I guess, even so many years later. (I know, four isn't a lot to some people - but in internet years, it must be at least sixty.)

I'll be honest, TN. We don't miss you. We've all moved on and some of us have fallen out of touch, but a lot of us haven't. We're still great friends and, you know, despite all of your faults, you had a lot to do with that. You brought us all together, through the drama and the flaky moderating and the crazy players. You gave us inspiration to make fun things happen with fictional people. So thank you for that, and thank you especially for providing us with one of the best years I've ever actually had in a roleplay game. We'll always have the memories (and abject shame). ♥

This game... This game means SO fucking much to me. I met some of the BEST friends I have in this game. It's been long enough now that I can laugh at the crazy and at the stupid. And I cherish it, because it's what we all bonded over. We've all grown as players since this game, or at least I like to hope that we have. I think we have. But I think it was this game more than any other that helped in that. I don't know about the others, but I know this was the longest running game that I was ever in. And hell, Tricia and I have built out an alternative universe four generations (or is it five now?) long FROM THIS GAME.

Some of my best online memories are from TN. There may have been a lot of drama, but in the end it was all worth it. I loved this game and I DO love all of you. <3

♥ I know what you mean, down to every word. And, my god, we had better have grown since we first started, or we are screwed. This is about the longest running game for me as well, and it just blows my mind that it has been as long as it has since it ended. It feels like forever ago some days, just yesterday on others.

And it was worth it, surprisingly enough. I think back and, when I get past all the crazy moments and people, I just see the good times. The long, 50+ comment threads. The journal entries that went back and forth for hours. The cracky chats where we spoke about everything from ghost shoes to the worthiness of jeans. It was ridiculous, but it was us then. ♥

Well, it's been four years (which is still IMPOSSIBLE to believe. Man...), so yes, if we haven't grown, we're in an entire world of trouble. And you're very much right. Sometimes it doesn't seem like it was long ago, and sometimes it feels like it was another lifetime.

I don't think I've been in another game that had the same sense of community that TN had. We weren't just players, but we had those cracky group chats EVERY NIGHT. We had injokes. We had... so much love for the game and for each other, and it's almost impossible to find that in a game now. We weren't just roleplayers. We were friends.

Gah. Thank you, TN, for existing.

so, I can't remember my password at all, so I'll use my personal journal to say this:

Thanks, TN, for the memories. Thanks for the crazies, for the bad roleplaying and for laughs you created because of all of this. But mostly, thanks for all the friends you've given me. Some friends (you know who you are) have been the BEST of friends these past four years.

♥ ♥

I don't remember my password either...but MAN! This was a lot of fun (bad but hilarious sometimes). THANK YOU guys. It does seem like forever ago...

Oh my god. I know we've said almost this exact thing amongst ourselves several times since... well, since sufficient time passed that we could look back on this place without needing sessions in therapy. I DIGRESS~

You perfectly summed up how I feel about TN. There is A LOT that I would willingly forget about this game, but there is plenty more that I wouldn't trade for the world. The friends I made out of it, and still talk to to this day, are number one on that list. The epic EPIC threads that went on for 100s of comments, the nightly chats that rarely had anything to do with the actual game, the crack-y ooc pairings and AUs, the sheer excitement I felt at RPing that I haven't felt for a game since then.

So, yeah, TN ended in a horrific trainwreck. But I can say I am definitely a much better roleplayer for having been here. Thanks, TN, for existing, but thanks to all of you for existing too. ♥

Seriously, Trishie?? You are one of a kind. And I love you.

I can't believe it's been FOUR YEARS. TN was my first LJ game and my second game EVER. Guh. I had so much fun here before the crazy hit the fan (and I know I was gone before a lot of it started... thank you oh Crazy-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named). RolePlaying was so new and shiney to me back then, and I was generally afraid of people not liking me, but I made some great friends here; People I love and adore to this day...

Like everyone else - Thanks TN, for the memories and the experience.

Don't remember my password and too lazy to bother to find out.

TN was the longest game I've been in which is probably why I'm still so fond of it despite teh batshit crazy. I don't think there has been a game that I felt such a sense of community with the chats. Even with all the insanity wea ll went through, I'm glad we did as I got some really good friends out of the deal. Not too shabby I think.

Thanks TN for all the memories, laughs, and even the drama! It makes for good stories.

Okay, so try as I may, I can't get it to let me into Bella's journal and I'm too damned impatient to wait for the change password email. But omg, I MISS your Rodolphus so freaking much. It's so hard to find any in games at all anymore, and yours was amazing. I don't think my Bellatrix could play off anyone else even half as well. I know it's been forever ago, but I'm glad that we got to play against each other. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3!!!

Aww. I know what you mean. I joined a game recently and tried to bring him back to life but it didn't quite work out. Sad times. T_T

Haha, I'M IN! SUCK IT, LJ!

Aww. I'm so sorry that it didn't work out. :/ How bad was the other game? And you spoilt me, too! Seriously, we need to RP together again sometime. While there's a few games in the works, I'm not playing Bella at any of them. :/ We could always do our own PSLs or something, though, in the meantime.

Yes that was totally my reaction so I need to actually say it.

I can't believe I'm just now posting on this (way to be almost a year late), but.

And I'm glad most of us have found each other (and better versions of our characters) again. ILU all. ♥♥♥♥♥♥

Please poke at Ling for me to get her to try again for Severus. I'm sad her hold fell through.

I AM TOO! You have no idea how happy I am that all, or at least most, of us are in a game together again. We may have new characters now, mostly, but it feels like home.
