Silveratic made me join and I liked it so I stayed. //hit
This wasn't my first account; I've been on deviantART since...2006-ish??? I don't remember; it's been a longass time. My other accounts were cringe-worthy so let's not talk about them. I basically hopped accounts the moment I got bored/grew out of a new phase. Horrible. Anyway--
I did make some internet friends, though most of the earlier ones have now deactivated their accounts. ;v; My first real interaction with people who I still love now was in OtherWorlde. I met wonderful, wonderful people there; RyuuLen, Ebulliently-Askew, konrei-sama, elisara555, AdmiralA, Elleybug, lichliebe, DevilishTwin and many, many more. I do talk to some of them, but...well, I don't know, we aren't as close as we used to be which is sad. uvu But, oh well; life goes on, right? I hope you are all well, if you end up reading this. OtherWorlde was a long and somewhat stressful journey there were good times and bad, per usual of all experiences in life. I enjoyed my time there, but I have no regrets in leaving; perhaps my only OtherWorlde related regret is that I lost touch with friends who I still care about and miss dearly. Friends who were kind and loving and some of the best people I will ever meet. You all hold a very special place in my heart that no outsider can ever be a part of. Thank you for all the great times we spent together. I wish you the best, stay happy.
My next significant event was SynthesisNote. This group is less like a RolePlay group and more like a family. Otherworlde was a family, too; after I left it, I felt very out of place in many groups I joined because, well, I didn't connect with anyone or my characters were not appealing...till Synthesis Note. This group helped through perhaps the biggest scare of my entire existence; a growth was found in my right breast. Breast cancer runs in my family and I was horrified. I did not want to tell my mother because I knew she would cry so I kept it to myself. During the day, I forced myself to act normal, but I cried myself to sleep at night with a chorus of "what if you have cancer"'s playing in my head. Synthesis Note helped me maintain a positive attitude and summon up enough courage to tell my mother.
On July 22nd, 2013 at 10am, I underwent surgery. The night before, I was talking to my Synthesis Note friends. They helped me be brave and even though the threat of cancer hung over my head like a vicious storm cloud, I still managed to smile and be happy with people that seemed to genuinely care about me. I felt unbelievably lucky to have friends that loved me enough to tell me everything was going to be okay when there was a huge chance that it wasn't. Luckily, the growth was not malignant but I was told that I have a higher chance of contracting breast cancer now. However, I'll be okay because I have friends who I can rely on to bring me up when I am down. Friends like Pichoochoo who is perhaps my closest online friend and someone who I depend on wholeheartedly and love like a sister, Redheart908 who always manages to make me laugh cause she's fucking ridiculous but as kind as they come, SeoKyo who moved accounts but was one of the best and most caring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and the wonderful kuratine who is the greatest mod in existence. These people helped me through the hardest time in my entire life and they continue to stand by me through whatever hardships I am currently enduring. You have my everlasting gratitude and I cannot stress how much of an impact you have had on my life and on my character. I am forever indebted to you for your kindness and your friendship.
And then came re--volution, one of my current groups and the next place I was able to connect with truly amazing people. Re:V is a wonderful group with a positive atmosphere and amazing people. Many of my current closest friends are from this group. Like Wolves1207 who is literally the sweetest person I have ever met and someone who I love a lot lot loooottt, ShimminyCricket who I would be lost and totally fucked without thanks bae, LeMinouNoir who keeps the humour light in our lives and reminds us that you don't always need drugs to be high (though that doesn't mean she doesn't prefer them LOL), nhiwi who is a wonderful artist and an even better friend, and Rosalaine who nearly killed me a few times with laughter. I love you all more than probably what is appropriate and I'd hit on every single one of you in a gross, old man way if we ever met because y'all are all too beautiful for your own good. You guys are the reason I can be who I truly am in Re:V without being frightened of being alone. Thank you. TEAM FIERCE.
Of course, I made many other notable friends along the way; Lynchly and LadyMeru are two adorable sisters that are too innocent for their own good and must be protected, Moiscen who is an artist I admire and a person who will definitely make you smile with her humbleness, annoKat who doesn't have enough watchers to match her art which is fucking beautiful, and more. You have all made me a better person and I appreciate each and every one of you with all my heart.
I swear to god this wasn't supposed to be so touchy feely but shit happens, I'm sorry. I hope to continue to meet wonderful people and maintain connections to those I cherish now. DeviantART is truly a large part of my life and I am glad that it is; it has taught me many things and helped me overcome many holy horrible phases. Thanks dA; I hope you survive another 14 years to come and several more after that.
