Mandatory nostalgia topic as we're all stuck inside. I used to go by names like Kimiko246 and Ubermorph, with a bunch of others (plus related emails and passwords) now being lost to the void. I probably started about a hundred roleplays and finished none of them, if that rings any bells.
Anyway, this was a good place to grow up. I didn't go outside a whole lot as a kid, so having a community of people to interact with online was pretty neat. This was probably where I first got serious about writing stories and making art. I've since been to (and graduated) college for fine arts, and write a lot in my free time. I was probably too young to actually be on these forums, but y'all made sure it was a good and safe space for kids to be. I appreciate that.
I don't play a lot of Runescape anymore. I got sidetracked into Halo, then Minecraft, then... Yeah, pretty much the mainstream stuff. Nowadays I'm mainly online to look at art and yell about how older games were better (remember when you could just put a disk in a console and it'd play the game? Crazy). I'm also in a long-term relationship! Absolutely bonkers. I'm also learning Japanese. 私は汚い外人です！
I guess I wanted to make this topic to show appreciation for the people that have been around for so long, for creating such a welcoming environment for the community surrounding this game. And it seems like everyone else is making these topics as well (hell, I have a similar one from 2012), so why not one more? Anyway, that's about it for the crazy adventures of Kimiko246 Ubermorph whatever name I picked for this account. How are y'all doing? I recognized a few names while skimming the topics here, and even if you don't remember me, I'd love to know how some of those names have been doing in the past decade.
