We got this here new Star Wars movie thing going on. It's Disney and it's Star Wars which means it's gonna be mega-huge. It's likely that those of you reading this here thing right now are the ones who have stuck around. Who joined during or just after the prequels. During that last great hype of fandom. We have grown up together. Evolved as people. We who have, for whatever reason or other, kept visiting this ever-stagnant corner of the internet. We who have kept it alive long after the rest of the world declared it dead. So, thank you. You're my friends. You're my family. I am a wholly different person now than I was when I joined. For the most part, I have no way to see and understand how that happened. Time and events tend to change you in ways you never perceive or understand. But when I am here, when I am with you people, I feel safe. I feel comfortable. I feel like that kid who joined because he read some fanfiction and really liked to play Galaxies (when he could, because my dad was kind of an ass and never wanted to sign into his account on the computer to update the client and he was the only one who could do that because he didn't trust me with administrator privileges.) All you "Darth_" types and my family in hat and those image duplicator cats i spent a little bit of time with and even you, JediMasterAmanda, wearing your two bras because you've never found one that fits just the way you want it.... Lub you. Thanks for all the memories. I'm excited that our slow, painful and grinding death has been halted, at least momentarily, by an influx of crazy naive fools who- if they are lucky- might one day be able to join our bitter and antagonistic ranks.
