Writer's Block: Celebrating Friendships

Apr. 24th, 2009 | 01:57 pm


evil_kieben  --  I've known him since 1997, back in the days when Gouki's Page of Whatever was the best place to go for Street Fighter discussion, even if it was a modified Guestbook.  We drifted apart, came together, drifted apart...then came together again.

Then again,  I've known just about all my current LJ friends for years.

miluda   -- I came across her in 1998 on Tavish's site.  I can't remember if  it was before or after Xoom hosted his Negative Edge site and brand new guestbook/board, but I think that's when it was.  Nevertheless, it was when ennui put up his ePoS (ennui's Page of Stuff) and we REALLY got to know each other.  Sadly, she's the only person from those days aside from Kieben that I still contact.  Man I miss ennui, Bushin, WillEVA, EvilNeil, Douggie (a.k.a. CyphR), The Amazing Saikyo (BJ), Cerberus, Mav Hunter from Toronto with that Talbain icon...

magnus_samma   -- I met him in 1999  I know him from back in the day, when InsidetheWeb had a message board system that Red Draco/Nadia Eisner  (now known as Nadia Oxford) used for her web site's forum.  We got to know each other more through AIM, wherein I think I called him more nasty names than I called the rest of the people on my friends list combined.  Despite this, or rather because of this, he's the only person from that crowd who I will have anything to do with, as the rest of Mechadrake crowd decided stab me in the back, share my e-mails with other people, call me slurs, and otherwise turn from supportive and caring friends to utter jerks in the span of 24 hours.

damaris   -- Even though I had been a fan of 411 Wrestling since 1997, and posted on the early 411 forum (the threaded 1999 one where everyone complained about Wresltemania XV), and the rebooted forum (when Stephen Martin was a 15 year old mod and banned us from using HTML)  I really didn't get to know her until the new version of Game Time Forums started in 2001 and she was a mod.  Good times for arguing with her, and in spite of our disagreements, she's one of the few people who I can say made GTF a richer place.  Ah, GTF, where all of the Mechadrake crap happened but only on a magnified scale.  And the sad thing is that they're still obsessed.

sin_ominous  -- I've known him since about 2004  Like the others above, I met him through a message board, ICVDForums.  Again, he's one of the few people from ICVD who I will talk to this day.  One notable difference between this situation and the two listed above is ICVD never pretended to be nice in the first place (which I admired), but upped the ante on Mechadrake and GTF by permanently taking down not one but two of my Web sites long after I no longer posted on the board, but that's another story...

loogaroo  is more of an acquaintance, but I've known him off and on since about 2003 or 2004.

By the way, I really don't know littlekuriboh.  I just friend him so that I can see his updates.   I just friend him so that I can see his updates.

You know, anyone who reposts another person's journal for public comment is an ass. And any mod that let's them get away with it isn't much of a mod.

But then, we knew what kind of people posted there. I just previously though better of a few of them.

People suck! Keep that in mind and you'll never be disappointed!

You'll even be surprised once in a while!

No, no, I don't mind, seriously. I put my entries out there for public consumption. Heck, I tried to court commenters. I EXPECT people to respond, be it here or elsewhere.

Besides, that's not the first time it happened at GTF, and not the first time it happened period. But any public entry I write is fair game for any feud. It works both ways, though.

Totally before. I remember all those silly ads and stuff. I wonder where ennui and the rest of them are now... I don't remember a kieben, did he go under a different name? I was also on gouki's page of whatever, I posted with a special template that ennui let me use so I hax'd all my posting side things like avatar and crud.

that was back when i first met karin/haruka and stuffs

On Street Fighter sites I usually went by the name PurpGuy.

I think you started shying away after Tavish actually got the Negative Edge domain name, though. I can't remember why. Maybe I lured you away to Cupid's Arrow....

...Now you've got me wondering what Vegito/Bomberman from CA and related forums is going. (No, not Gogeta/Sereknight, Mr. Fast and the Furious wannabe, but his pal.)

...AND you've gotten me thinking about Ishmael of GPoW of all people. It's weird. Every time I read that Darkstalkers fanfic, I wonder what happened to him.

Ishmaels site is linked from the pothole with the black and white image of the guy and the beer bottle. Whether its still active or not I couldn't say. I'm on my cell phone so can't provide a direct link.

I've been meaning to ask for like a year now but I keep forgetting to. Is this the same Magnus that was on La Taberna? We appeared in a few of each others skits but never actually met. Its good to see you around, a link to happier times.

Yes, it is.

And now you made me think of this entry.

Cham morphed into Kasthra when her story stopped being a fanfic. I still write for her when I have time but since I want to put it all together in RPG Maker, it's taking a lot longer than it should have.

That Nyx story arc was a real playground for Cham though. That and the stone statue in the Secret Corner stand out as my personal favourites.
