Introduction.

Anything goes.

Um, bye, Fox.

You are of course always welcome, should you choose to de-lurk again. But if you'd rather just... watch us, that's okay too.

Oftentimes entering the stories one reads is deemed an impossibility. To turn such an opportunity down is perhaps even greater. In any case, farewell, ALoneFox, and congratulations on overcoming the odds.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

ALoneFox wrote:I suppose since this is the introduction, it can also be an outtroduction. I'll just say that I'm sorry and I'm leaving to return to lurking. It''s been nice to meet you all, but this is just a story to me, and the reader should not interact with the characters. I'm sorry for trying to be one of you, when I'm not. I'm not a metaguard. I wasn't here when everyone became a girl and I wasn't here when Adell risked his life against Cthulu. I wasn't here when you fought and I wasn't here when you celebrated. It seems my name was entirely apt. I am truly alone. I was never here. I'm sorry for being an attention whore. I'm sorry for wasting your time. And I'm sorry for writing this now, aware as I am of the consequences. Maybe I'll come back when I can be useful. When I can earn my place. I probably won't. But you're all still awesome. Keep smiling. Keep the insanity in the coffee room. Keep the fun on the chats. Keep going like I was never here. I know it won't be hard. Just forget about me, 'K? I'd delete my account but I don't know if that is possible, and if it is, how to do it. So instead I'll just write this and make it too long and create guilt and sympathy and conflict, since that is probably all I'm good at, and go back to lurking. I'll always be around. To those of you I met: you were great. You were all really nice and welcoming and amazing. Keep it up. To those I didn't: I wish I did. To all the GMs: good job guys. Keep up the good work. And remember that I'm not leaving because of you. Because of any of you.

Love you all.


Earn your place? Dude, earn it in what? I mean, we're a bunch of guys chatting in a forum, we're nothing special, you don't have anything to earn :D. I guess we are metaguards, as a group, but sometimes, relying too much on group names overshadows people as individuals.

You sound a bit like me in a way. Took me long time to figure out I wasn't actually alone in any of this. I'm still lonely and sad sometimes, but the people here helped me a lot. We're the kind of people who enjoy telling stories, reading stories, talking about them, drawing, writing, solving puzzles, researching, rambling on about how cool one or another web show is, tweeting in jokes at GMs... We care for our friends, and sometimes (in my case frequently - sorry again, guys) we make dumb mistakes and have arguments. We shared an adventure together, we enjoyed it, and in your own way you shared that journey too, you were a part of it. That's all we need. But when you get down to it we're ordinary people, more than players, and we're happy for you to come be our friend. Just because you didn't share the experience the same way we did shouldn't exclude you at all. If you are the kind of person who enjoys those things, then we would enjoy having you \around. If you don't think you can do that, then that's cool too: it was nice to meet you :)

We are not in any way who we are because we're Metaguards. We're Metaguards because of who we are.
They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.

What is it with me and six-month breaks from this place?

We should probably have a "Leaving/Returning" thread.

Way ahead of you, Anura. :D Welcome back.

Okay, now that I think the Coffee Room might be in trouble, I suggest a number based solution to this cipher. I know ^ is 6 in your non-Brazilian keyboards, but I assume * is 8, ! is 1, ( is 9, etc.
