Happy 8th Anniversary!

Happy 8th Anniversary,
Blood Rites!

In February 2010 Blood Rites was launched. Bowie, Petri and I invited our first members to join and come write in our little world. Over the last 8 years we've had 116 different writers who have left varying levels of impact across the board, and our world.

All of this hard work has come on the back of our writers, Plot Leaders, and the High Blood Council (our Admins). Dash and Phinn have dedicated so much of their time and energy into running the board in our 7th year and bringing us to this moment. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them both for their incredible dedication and support.

Our community is another year older, and another year closer together. We're building beautiful plots and stories, but also forging friendships.

To help us celebrate our 8th Anniversary...

What were your fondest memories of the last year at BR?
Either in real life or in character.

I love all of the crazy conversations that happen on Discord. For real. It's a grab bag of what are you going to get. Some mornings, there are so many messages to catch up in a channel because of plotting that I need a TLDR but I'm always glad to see that whirlwind of activity. And other nights I'm laughing so hard from something posted like WTF did I just read?! The community here is amazing.

Halyonix's point is really great. I love that we have a central place to all virtually hang out and chat. It helps me feel much closer to all you crazy friends I have.

I started a pretty challenging new job and it is very great to know that everyone at BR is understanding and was very much excited when I returned from the dark hole of "starting a new job". It's meant a lot to me to know I have friends here who love this crazy collaborative RP thing as much as I do.

Also, 8 years open makes me feel either crazy or old. Crazy for this being a thing for 8 GORRAM YEARS, as well as old because I've been doing this longer than I was in college.

But, Love Ya all, FOR REAL.

BR's been really interactive this last year thanks to Discord. It's great to see everyone chatting and sharing their love of music, games, the stories we write here, and just in general more integrating ourselves more in each-other's lives.

Definitely my favorite thing of this last year was going to Reid and Leez's wedding and getting to hang out with Phe and Viv at the same time. Stories are great, but the people are better.

Here's to 8 more!
