@hawkshade: Oh, okay I get what your saying. And me killing prime Grif never happened. It more or less roped me back in.

I'm at work, therefore on mobile. When I get home I'll throw a link up.

  • Egan for pulling me to this board 10 years ago
  • Trauma and Plat for making me stay
  • Garison, Void, and Drift for the laughs
  • KH for his wild imagination

@tessa_callahan:

King Hyperion. He got in trouble for some OOC stuff with Shadowstep, but that was like... years ago when he wasn't adjusting well to the social construct of the forum. He tried coming back a couple years ago but got chased off by people who remembered him.

I keep trying to maintain contact but it's difficult.

@warsman: Ohhhh. Completely forgot about him. I do remember some of that, and some of the ensuing scuffles when he came back.

That's a bummer, I'm sorry :(

@tessa_callahan:

I'm concerned about Platinumwarrior though. He went on vacation to Israel (he was Jewish) and never came back or maintained any sort of contact. This was about eight years ago, we tried having another RP before he left, and there was a spike in terrorist activities in Israel.

I don't want to assume the worst.

@warsman: I have the same worries about some people who disappear, and I think part of that is driven by knowing that I would never just ghost on the forum, so it's kind of unfathomable to me when other people do it. Especially when you know that their careers or other circumstances will have them in dangerous situations/circumstances.

Yeah. It's sort of surreal at first, seeing the text you befriended just stop after a while.

@warsman: Yup. I go through a whole mental process that usually winds up at anger followed by apathy until they return and the anger and excitement kicks up in tandem.

@tessa_callahan:

I think the first thing I would say to any of them when they came back would be something stupid. Putting eight years into a singular greeting is bizarre to fathom, actually.

Florian. I remember Florian and his fight with Cass, among other things.

Florian. I remember Florian and his fight with Cass, among other things.

There was one summer where Cass was pregnant and she was back on a Gambler team and Angelique and Florian systematically attacked her time and time again, and then would gaslight her to Gambler, and plead ignorance. G and I filled in a ton of their backstory that summer, too. Was maybe my favorite summer on the Vine.

I think I miss Jean most of all. The King of Kings. Guy had a really cool presence about him, one of the cooler powersets I've ever seen (Taskmaster+Gambit) and his accent was a stroke of genius because it made every word that came out of his mouth distinctive. You couldn't get him confused with any other character, ever.

I'll cosign this so hard. I'm mad Gambler became flighty like the rest of us because I desperately want that character back.

He truly was the King of Kings. Most iconic character on CV imo, and with the longest lasting impact.
