    Hey Hannibal,

    Is that you? Good. Look, we're all TERRIBLY upset with that whole 'leaving us behind' thing. I've been grieving for someone I've never met, and don't even know what looked like, since I found out. Maybe you do have 4 big horns coming outta your head like your Mas Amedda skin?

    Anyway, it's been a really sad time down here, as you'll notice if you look in Rascal's post. And it's been peaceful - well on the board, not globally. Everyone who was once feuding on this board has taken your lacey dove hanky and tossed it around. You'd be proud, if a little dismayed at how many people are handling the thing. It was a clean hanky, right?

    I'm happy Rascal made it through the accident, and was able to tell us all what happened. Had you not introduced him to us a few weeks back, we'd probably all just think you were off at University & couldn't get onto the boards or something.

    But I know you are a funny bastard, and I'm thinking it might be nice to communicate to you in a new, upbeat, thread, and leave the "Commemmoration" one for the more sombre messages to / about you.

    This thread is the one where we can talk directly to you and let you know what's happening down here.

    The big news is that through Bib's efforts, Garry Gaber has forced me to alter my sig. The cheeky so-and-so included a Force Boat in Battlegrounds. Can't wait until its entry into the next edition of the Star Wars Encyclopedia.

    Oh, and some advice. If you see Sir Alec around, for God's sake, don't tell him you're a Star Wars fan. Tell him you liked him in "Lawrence" or "Kwai". Then get his autograph.

    I know you're too busy learning to play the harp to reply. That's OK. Can you do the "Imperial March" on it yet? I guess "Stairway to Heaven" is even more cliche'd up there than here!

    Anyway, all us TFN JCN Games kids will keep you up to date with what's going on in this world, from time to time.

    Ciao dude,
    JP

    Hey Nad,

    If only you, and everyone here could read the conversations I've had with various people. pat-fett has ben a great friend and really just listnened, which helped a lot. :)

    I'm sorry the last conversation we, really had, was a bit of a disagreement over the, now silly, fuss i made over your brothers friend 'talking' to me through icq. i wish I'd talked to you more between then and now. ( :( )

    The terrible news i came home, from school to, was so upsetting i literally threw up, i was sooo shocked. From 4pm to midnight i talked to pat-fett and really opened up. I am slowly starting to come to terms with your passing but i will never forget the times, laughs and JK games we shared.

    I knew how much you loved your JK skin JP made you (i remember one game - morpheus - i asked if you play as SFL and i as Mas Amedda, and your excuse was "i dont want to shot and kill such a lovely skin!" soon after we changed back and if memory serves - i wasted me :p) Darth-Hannibal is now cased in Carbonite and will be preserved in my heart for ever. One other JK related thing, thank you for teaching me and letting everyone in on your signature move in saberX "Force Death from Above". Force fly to a height then let rip with destruction balls while on the influence of Dark Surge. Right now i cant even bring myself to put the JK CD in my PC let alone play. i remember you trying to teach my to force fly for the first time in canyon oasis. i kept getting to a height that when i lost timing id kill myself, i think you must have been fairly annoyed at this guy that could jump 2 or 3 times then fall. hehe

    i just wanted to say i never held you responsible for what happened with your brothers friend and i regret saying anything as it caused a period of time where we didnt talk, when we could have. i looked at you as my best friend, not just an internet friend, even though i have never seen your face (though you and kelly had a few laughs at mine! :p) this didnt matter to me, i wish i could have met you in real life because you came off as such a charasmatic, funny, witty, smart and talented individual... The Individual.

    when, more to say i have, ill let you know.

    Thanks for the gift, Nad!

    Last week I told Nad that I was having trouble relaxing, getting a bit stressed out, and he said he'd work on it. Today in the post I received a 3-disc set of classical music called "Relax", with a personalised message from Nad. He must have ordered it on the day of the accident.

    Hey Nad, hows things dude?

    Whats the food like up there?

    any hot chicks? :)

    guess what... i got accepted to Lincoln University today! im sooo happy with the last 3 days of "school life!"

    75% in a stats assignment
    100% in a geography assignment
    acceptance to UNI!

    :) :D

    wanna hear some funny stuff? ... the other night jp, flare and i tested flares new skin pack (with new added sounds) for the upcomming HOTH BATTLE (i know you were keen to play this - i wont let ya down!

    well... as in the game we decided to play with force level 3 (all 3 of us) ((jp and flare wanted to play me with no FF dark! hehe)) anyway - i then said - why dont we play teams? jp and flare both against me!

    jp and flare jumped at the chance to teach this lil' punk a lesson in JK (especially without my dark side powers)

    anyway it was a tough game and i, unfortunatly, for them beat them both - comfortably.

    scores:

    38 - 7 - 2 (me - flare - jp) hehe :p

    and well, i was stoked (as you could imagine) beating two against me - they kept taking my rails too! - so i couldnt let them get away with THAT!

    hehe o well,
    ill be thinkin of ya when i blow them up on sunday (my time)! :)

    Hey Nad, I found your diary today! Nice hiding place, a little cubbyhole under your bed. There's a similar hiding place in my room too. Finally somewhere to keep porn! ;) j/k

    I'm not going to read it, I'm going to mail it to Kelly. I hope there's nothing in there you don't want her to read!

    Your room is still empty; of course by now everyone has a permanent place, so chances are that it'll stay yours all year now.

    Hope you're keeping alright up there, buddy.

    The reason you beat us was that you had twice the number of targets as we did. And we only had half the number of targets as you.

    Hi Nad!

    It all went to hell around here in the last couple of days. But Bib and Dan will be back in the next couple of days, and things will all get back to normal. If you want to read it dude, look at the locked topic "So why was Connemara just banned" in JCC.

    Later pal,

    Conn asked me to post this here for her, so here it is...


    Hey Nad, it's Connemara here. This is an honor I should have done for you a long time ago, but I guess I thought it was kinda silly and all. I did talk to you...the day after I heard about your death...it was the most beautiful day I'd seen in a long time, and I told you I hoped you were seeing it too, from wherever you were. I hope you heard me that day.

    Look, some really bad things have happened here, and there's a lot of horrible rumors going around...about me and others. It is very hard for me to write this here, among my enemies, where I know I am less welcome than anyweher else on earth. But I want you to hear it straight, truthfully. I don't wanna hide away somewhere and make the truth a big secret.

    I wasn't even gonna write this. I figured I would just forget all this. Ban all of them from my forum, and ICQ, and forget I ever knew them. And worse yet, try to forget I ever knew you. But God had other plans I think. Well, we were watching "Silence of the Lambs" last night. And much as I tried to ignore it, every time Dr. Lecter said Clarice I was reminded poignantly of you. Morbid, I spose, but it was your trademark.
    After that, for the first time in weeks I cired over your death. Then I told myself there was some unfinsihed business I had to attend to. And that business is this.

    They tell me you hated me. You laughed at me. You thought I was a sorry excuse for a human being. Maybe that was true, but the fact that I admired you, and thought of you as one of my close friends even thought we never met has driven me to write this. I almost forgot what you meant, what all of the JC.N GL meant to me. But I did not. And Nad, I love you, as a friend, I woudl have done anything for you if you'd only asked. So, I'll do this for you now...

    This all came about because I asked Lord Bane to lock a topic Jedi Bib had started in JCC. You know Bib, he was up to his 'ol tricks. But in the week since then I have had a lot of time to think about exactly why I did that. Because, as I've learned in ethics this year, it is not what was done, but why that is important.
    A lot of it was simply a spur of the moment kinda action. I saw it as a chance to get back at Bib for all the times he's hurt me. I wouldn't have even gone through the trouble except I happened to be tlkaing over PM to Lord Bane, so I thought "Haha, I can at least get Bib's trash out of the JCC. He can have Games for all I care, but not the JCC"

    This is the truth, the total truth, and nothing but the the truth. That is what went through my head. A lot of poeple in Games now will tell you that I am some maniac bent on destroying Bib. Nah, that's not true. Our bickering with each other has always been almost comical to me, I have never hated him. I dont' know why he does it, but I don't feel a lot of real deep, seething hatred coming from him, and I do not wish to hurt him. I simply didn't wish him to hurt the JC.

    SFL and JR jeer at me a lot for that. Maybe you woudl too, I dunno. I understand why you all feel that way. You are the Games section. You mostly only visit Games, it is your home. I used to be like that. And if I still were, and I was told that some other person was going around trying to "protect the JC from Bib" I would have laughed, too.

    But I am not a Games person anymore. I am different from all of you. I am a JCer, through and through, and one that actually cares for the JC. I have said many times in the past that the JC is a magical place. I have met a couple very good friends, and my true love here. A friend of mine also met his true love here. A place that is home to such wonderful poeple has to be special, and I have always felt it was.

    There are a couple other things floating around that I probably should clarify.

    One, that I am power hungry. This is true. Yes, I DID say this was the time and place for total truthfullness, so I am being totally truthful. I am, and always have been, since I was a little girl, power hungry. One y

    ask conne who EVER said this:

    "They tell me you hated me. You laughed at me. You thought I was a sorry excuse for a human being."

    she loves making things up - but if someone did actually say this (i dont think so) ill stand corrected and appologise.

    I think Connemara deduced that from something I said to her. Over-dramaticising, how weird...

    I'm sorry old boy, I don't know why it was your thread that she chose to host this argument, but I want it put to rest, once and for all.

    Nad's main gripe with Connemara, something that he and I occasionally joked about between us, was her dramatic nature, and her monopolistic tendencies.

    One thing Connemara wrote is that "we consider this our home". Does ANYONE here consider this their home? Nad once said to me that a setup like this is somewhere he would like to come to waste time, laugh and make others laugh, and generally be silly. It's not home, it's somewhere we come to enjoy ourselves. Out of some sort of loyalty to Connemara, Nad followed when she set up the first ezyboard.

    He eventually came to his senses, and put up the olive branch thread as a means of returning to the fun that he used to have. Nad was smart, he decided to remain detached. Later on, when the time came to move to university, Nad decided to give the internet community a complete break, so he could concentrate on real life. He knew that THAT is what mattered, and that is what his gripe was with Connemara; that she couldn't see this.

    I never said he hated you. Nad didn't hate anyone. Especially people he never met face to face; didn't even know what they looked like!

    NOW NO MORE! JP is right, this must be getting very boring for people here. If this argument is to be further pursued, then it must be at Connemara's forum, not this one. And no-one else bring Nad into this. I myself have revealed things that Nad probably wouldn't have liked to be known, but Nad was the most vocal advocate of peace in this place, and that is what we are trying to get.

    Connemara is going to let it be. I'm going to let it be. SFL, I want you to let it be as well. And anyone else who has been vocal in this. Please. For Nad's sake.
