Back maybe?

Posted by Zarayna , Oct 10 2015 · 765 views

It seems that roughly once a year I feel an urge to poke my nose back in here. This time I think I might actually stay this time, albeit on a somewhat inactive level.

How is life for those friends of mine still around here?

These last to years have been quite a change for me, I think. I went through my old blog entries (and by old I mean the first two pages because I didn't want to look back any further), and I'm a little surprised with how much of a tactless, immature person I was back in the day, especially towards the end of my activity back in 2013.

Anyways, my writing has decreased significantly, although I keep telling myself I'll get back to it. I'm terrible without people encouraging me to keep going! I'm still studying for the priesthood in Philadelphia, and actually recently had the honor of living down the hall from Pope Francis when he visited Philadelphia; I'm still recovering from the craziness of that weekend.

I have an epic that's been in the works for a few years, and hopefully I'll start releasing it soon.

Life for your friends around here? They're now phantom faces at the window...

You have no idea how at home here you just made me feel.

But it is kinda true, at least for some of them. How have you been?

Everyone has a moment where they look back at their past selves (easier done on Internet forums) and go, "Wow, I hate past me."

(I pretty much loathe my 2008 self. Such poor writing and manners back then. *shudders*)

Anyway, it seems a lot of people are poking their noses out again. Welcome back. :)

I JUST WALKED IN TO FIND YOU HERE WITH THAT SAD LOOK UPON YOUR FACE!

Haha, thanks. I get that feeling every few years, but glad to know I'm not the only one. Did you finish off Wings?

 

SPIRIT: Um, nice to see you too? :P

Wings is pretty much on permanent hiatus; I lost interest in it a while ago after everyone vanished. On the bright side, I have a new story I'm working on, that I should start posting soon. :)

Aww.... Are you working on anything else in that world? 

 

Regardless, I'm looking forward to whatever you're going to post.

I might go back to Wings someday, but not anytime soon. I have a crossover fic I've been working with on another site, but that's going slowly.

 

I'm almost done with the first chapter; once that's done I'll start posting it, so probably next Saturday.

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing it! Not sure if you'd be interested, but I just began posting an epic here.

I think I remember you - pretty active in the Library, and I think you wrote a short story about Hero Factory with some legendary character and a sun-type-thing? 

 

In any case, welcome back! :)

    • 0

Eeww no, I don't think I've ever touched Hero Factory. But yes, I was pretty active in the library. Pity Short Stories is so inactive.

    • 0

Yeah, all the old library people are starting to run together. 

 

The "revitalize the Library!" campaign may have to happen, but I won't be heading it for a long while. So busy. It's doing better than some other places around here, and worse than others.

Hey there buddy! Cant believe I missed this!
 
Long time no see! looks like everyone's coming back at the same time. its great, isn't it? :)
 
I know how you feel. there's a lot of things I regret saying in the past, especially on here, and not just because of how noobish it was... good thing most of it was lost with the archives, I guess :P
 
I can also relate with the writing, strangely enough. I haven't been drawing barley at all in the past two years; been ramping it up lately though, trying to make something of the talents I've been given; the fact im taking a course for writing graphic novels/comic making really helps :D
 
Man, you got to live with the pope? that's awesome, he's such a nice and cool guy from everything I've seen, must've been great if you got the chance to chat with him :)

Well, to make you feel better I missed your comment as well. :P 

 

Yeah, I was inspired to come back when I learned that you and Inferna had wandered back, it just took a few boring days to get me to actually return. 

 

I saw your comics, and they look really, really good!

 

It was a pretty awesome time. I wish I could have talked to him, but there wasn't really time for that. 

 

He is pretty great. When he first arrived at our school he made us sing happy birthday to the bishop of Philly, whose birthday was eclipsed by, well, the pope visiting. It was a really graceful gesture, and probably my favorite moment of the entire weekend.

 

Anyways, good to hear from you again! Not sure if you're on skype or Facebook, but if you still use AIM I should try remembering my login info there sometime.

Turning

Did you see them going off to fight?
Children of the barricade that didn't last the night.
They were schoolboys, never held a gun,
Fighting for a new world that would rise up like the sun.
Where's that new world now the fighting's done?

If there was a slap for every reference you didn't get, Zar, you would be like a walking bruise.
