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). ♥

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. ♥
