... and thanks for all the fish! [May. 24th, 2012|02:20 am]
~Flyboy, Jai, Tails... whatever!~
Hey guys.

Since I've had a few emails and PMs lately asking where I've been, as I haven't updated on LJ since near the beginning of the year, I figure I owe it to everyone to come back and sign out officially.

I think I'm pretty much done with LiveJournal. It's been a blast, but I don't think there's anything left for me here now. The latest set of updates to the site itself are cementing my dislike for LJ ever since the takeover, and sadly I think I've lost touch with most of the people I talked to here anyway. I'm not really part of the Sonic community any more, and although Sonic (and Tails, and all the rest) are still an integral part of who I am, I'm into other fandoms now.

I went through a rough transition when Miles came along, and I lost (and nearly lost) a few friends from that because of how profoundly going from fic'kin to multiple changed my life. I don't expect anyone's willing to go through that again, and my life HAS changed again in that regard. I've had a newcomer fronting for several months now, and while I'm not gone, it wouldn't be fair to expect anyone to accept yet another stranger into the fold with no warning.

In closing, I'll tell you what's going on in my life right now. My mum has had most of her reconstructive breast surgery now, and she'll be getting the last part done in July, on her birthday. She'll also find out on that day whether she's got the all clear for cancer remission. She's still not been told if she definitely has lupus or not although it's likely. Jei was here for a couple of months. She's applying for a work visa and hopefully if she gets it she can come back to the UK for two years to find work in the next couple of months. I've got part time work in the local museum, which I'm really chuffed about, but I really need to get full-time hours. I've sold almost my entire huge collection of Sonic merch.

I won't be deleting my LJ, and I may occasionally come back to post very sporadic life updates but it won't be regular. I still read everyone's posts even if I rarely comment, but please feel free to remove me from your friends list if you don't want the baggage of a ghost account lingering there.

Thanks everyone for the amazing time. You've been fantastic friends, and if any of you ever needs anything, PLEASE drop me a PM or an email at my usual address. Godspeed~!

Awww I'm so sad to hear that you'll be "leaving" this place! I'm glad you'll still be lurking around. There aren't enough At Swim fans to keep dwindling them down.

Thanks so much for the update! I hope your mom continues to slowly improve. What are your new fandoms now? I really associate you so much with Sonic & Company! Lol!

I'm mainly involved in Homestuck right now. Sonic's been my life for so long, so it really is strange... but I still have so much love for Sonic and co, so I'll be watching out for any relevant info on that front!

I'm glad! I hope your mom gets better and that she doesn't have lupus... but, if she does, I hope it's treated and that everything goes as smoothly as possible. ^_^

I don't mind if Jai's fic'kin or a multiple system or anything like that, Jai's the one who made me smile for the first time in ages and one of my earliest fandom friends and just a really good friend in general.

I hope you get to spend lots of time with Jei. ^^

Aw, I don't post as often as I used to either, but Jai's never, ever baggage!

I'll keep you added, of course! ^3^

Aww, Bird... seeing a comment from you always puts a smile on my face. I hope we never lose touch completely! You're one of my oldest friends and one of the best ♥ I'm sure we'll exchange comments in the future even if I'm not around as much.

I won't lie, I'm sad to see you go, even though I know it's been a long time since you last updated. I was wondering how you were doing. I'm happy that you're at least doing ok. :)

Jai, I still remember when you were there for me during my depression last year. I haven't forgotten that. I want to thank you. My life's changed in several ways since that time, and I'm just glad you were there to help show me there was a light at the end of the tunnel.

I won't forget the good times, those moments in sonicstuff and on our personal journals. I know we weren't ever that close, but I just wanted you to know I treasure those memories.

Good luck in your future endeavors, and I hope you won't hesitate to drop by here every once in awhile and let us know how you're faring.

Again, thank you.

Love you. <3

Thank you so much... It means a lot for you to say that, and I really hope your life is on a good track upwards now. I won't forget all those memories either, and I'll definitely check in to let you know how I'm doing ♥ You've been a good friend.

I'm glad of that ^^ and I hope not too :)

If our friendship depends on things like space and time, then when we finally overcome space and time, we've destroyed our own brotherhood! But overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now. And in the middle of Here and Now, don't you think that we might see each other once or twice?

It's sad that we won't be seen you around much anymore. I don't post much anymore, either; other things just get in the way. Hopefully I'll see you around commenting. <3

Hey, nice to see you again. I'm just glad you're OK.

I'm not much of an LJer, so if you leave, I guess I will too, since you're literally the only reason I come to LJ. What about on SSMB or Dreamwidth though? Will you still be there?

Multiple? Wait, so you mean you can have other personas besides Miles? That's interesting. What do you mean by 'newcomer' though?

Glad to hear your life's going fine. I hope your mother recovers fully soon. Cool that you got a job, at a museum no less!

I'm just happy to hear from you again. Best of luck to you.

Hey, it's good to hear from you, too! I'm not really on any other social platforms at the moment, but if I do join up to any, I'll come back here briefly to tell people where they can find me.

The newcomer is someone from Homestuck, and he's been pretty active, which is part of the reason why I haven't gone to any other social networks yet since I'm not the one fronting most of the time.

I'll definitely comeback to LJ to update if anything big happens! Thanks for your kind words (:

I was wondering what happened to you Flyboy. It's good to hear from you again. I hope your mom continues to improve in regards to her cancer treatment. That's great that you got a part time job and I wish you luck in getting a full time one.

It's shame that you won't be around here as much, I do understand that interests change and people move on to other things though. Despite us not getting the opportunity to talk much, I do wish you all the best with everything in the future.

Heyyy, it's nice to see you're still alive, I was worried about you, you know XP. So many people on SSMB are wondering where your foxy bum ran off to XP.

Yeah I understand, just glad you didn't like randomly combust or something XP. I was going to make an SSMB banner parodying Carmen Sandiego ("Where in the world is Flyboy Fox?") at one point, to see if anyone knew where you were XP.

I would like to come back to SSMB I just felt that I couldn't really after being gone for so long. But it's true that a lot of people are still there even if they've mostly moved on from the Sonic fandom itself so maybe I could come back just to be around my friends again (:

Good luck, Tails (and Miles).

We never really got to talk much, but I always liked you both quite a bit.

It's too bad that I'm on your side of the ocean right now and we'll probably not get to meet while I'm here.

Be strong, persevere and you will reach your dreams.
