Favorite BR Memories
« on: Feb 15, 19, 08:58:38 AM »
Celebrating BloodRites!

NINE YEARS, GUYS! That's older than alot of things, and definitely older than any other Blood Rites board on the web. Blood Rites' terrific community has alot to do with how well it's endured, and the community we've created here is something to be treasured. Sure we don't always get along perfectly but what family does? :P

Take a moment to look around and appreciate the relationships you've made or expanded upon here, and how much fun and joy the board has enabled us to experience over the last ALMOST-DECADE.

To help celebrate, we want to hear about your favorite and fondest memories from the last 9 years of Blood Rites history!

Which has been your all-time favorite character? What was your all time favorite thread? How about that lunch date you had with other members? Or that special trip you took to put a face to a name?

We want to hear it all from IC to OOC and everything in-between!

Participants will receive a small bonus at the end of the event.  •  Discord: phinn#0798  •  Writer Tracker

Man oh man, there are way too many IC memories and things I love both as of my first time on the board and since returning. So I will probably have to come back after I've thought about it a bit more.

However, OOC is a no-brainer and obviously includes the opportunities that I've gotten to meet up with some of you fine folks. (I haven't yet had the pleasure of attending an official BR Con, but I'm hoping to change that!)

So, in chronological order:

  • Giving Lene a tour of the falls and the park that they're a part of (braving the cold for such a venture, no less).
  • A couple months (I think?) after that, getting to see Lene again - and also Kellee! - when we met up for breakfast! After I was forced to miss going with them to one of Anne Bishop's book signings due to a ridiculous kidney stone episode.
  • Lunch and falls tour time with phinn this past September when she made her way up around these parts. Being offended and baffled by the strange, medieval castle-looking, brick monstrosity of a building in the middle of Buffalo (that I still haven't figured out what it is...)
  • Finding out that petri lives within reasonable driving distance to me and getting the excellent opportunity to befriend them over the course of the last year. We've gotten to hang out several times and had a heck of a lot of fun in doing so!
Here's to hopefully getting to meet more of you in the future and having the chance to make even more fond memories! <3

Hmm favorite memories...

Getting my beer mug from Gavin and my necklace from Kenna and my plush gryphon from Isa for Winsol over the last 3 years.

Late nights talking with phinn.

The 'good mornings' every morning.

That time the group tried to give me a crash course in Town of Salem and I died with the message "I have no idea what's going on" and confused everyone.

Getting my scarf and socks from Danika.

And while not a favorite, this one stuck with me as poignant: the overwhelming support of the community as my brother was dying and those who checked in on me during the funeral to make sure that I was taking care of myself. I cannot express how much that means to me.

I mean,it's really hard to pick a favorite memory... but if I had to pick just one?

DG and Mu and Lene staying at my house for a week.  We would stay up late just brainstorming and plotting and laughing ourselves silly.  We won't talk about 'the Incident' but I will never forget it.  (Hint, it was hilarious and awful all at the same time).

As far as in-character goes... um... Over the last year I would have to say my favorite memory was Vera losing her shit, and how the thread came together and just... it was awesome.  :D

My Secret Santa gifts have been pretty champ. I never did get around to thanking this year's Santa because I didn't get the display case that I thought I was getting so I never took a photo of my new collectible glasses in their new home because they don't have a new home yet... But anyway! Giving and getting has been a ton of fun. Idk why, but it's so much more fun to exchange gifts with you guys than anyone else!

My bestest most favorite BR memory waaaas the night before my wedding, sitting in my hotel room with Leez and Dash and Phe and Vivibee and talking plots and writing tags.

And also my wedding! Nik was there too. It was wonderful <3 I got drunk, and there was a full moon, and we all danced together!!! And I got so many hugs and so much love and it was amazing <3 <3 <3 <3

ICly... every thread I've ever written with Vivi, hehehe. Also the Decimation was awesome not just because I got to blow up a Territory but because of how cool everyone was about Consequences for it :3 Dash and Dany especially broke/killed some pretty rad characters. <3 It felt super cool.

I love getting the chance to write with everyone here. This community has been great and full of people that I like talking to and interacting with daily.

Secret Santa has actually been one of my favorite things to do on BR. I usually don't participate in them, but knowing that someone enjoyed the gift they received puts a smile on my face.

Also, 2018 Secret Santa...I will find you and thank you. Eventually. Be warned.   ;)

SO many in such a short time but things that stick out are:

  • Getting to be in the same room as Erica, Mu, Lene, Lochlan, and Wren and just... get lost in the plots and nonsense (and the fact that the world did not implode when Loch and I hugged, thus proving that brain twins are safe to be in the same place at the same time)
  • Endless support form so many people when irl kicks my ass.
  • Writing an entire book with Erica in our spare time, for the lols (and not being able to go for more than two days without spending hours on the phone together)
  • Phe sending me random gifs as a way to ask for Gabriel posts. It's adorable
  • Learning to write smut (thank you Lene and Gavin!) and accidentally, therefore, launching me into a whole new career
  • Getting to be part of some pretty epic events, such as the Sandworm attack on Onn, Murderfest, the Decimation of DN, and most recently the Sabbah uprising. It's amazing to work with other writers in those big coordinated efforts!
  • Finding out Mischief lives right down the road from me and getting to meet them!
Home is behind, the world ahead, And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night, Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back to home and bed.
