miku left

game over man, game over

rip - this community

It was already dead. We're just kinda hangers on. Least, I think so.

So did anyone else get Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire? Shocked
I still haven't started it yet.
I'll probably get around to it during winter break since I don't want to be distracted by school and college stuff while playing it.
I'm pretty psyched about it. Definitely something I'm looking forward to.
The nostalgia will be reallllll
Yes, Omega Ruby here! It's been amazing so far- very enjoyable. It's been somewhat surreal to see things in such upgraded graphics. I think that this'll win over the people who've hated on Gen3 their whole lives- more Pokemon are catchable, and it's connectable to X/Y regardless.

I visit daily but can't really post much if like the only thread being posted on for three days on a row is the anime thread or something.  Not unless somebody else watches Marvel Disk Wars.
Sorry, nope.

I think that, as people, we've grown apart. Back when all we thought, spoke, or worked on was Pokemon Platinum, back when that was a fresh off the press game, we all had at least one thing in common. Plus, we were years younger.

But now, we've grown up. Diversified. Of course not all of us are gonna go in the same direction- it's a big world out there and there's so many directions to go. Many of us are finishing up high school, or going to college. Maybe getting jobs. That's just the age that we're at now. I know that for me, I feel kinda out of place because I have my own house and my own car, and I'm married. Not to mention my plans for the future.

....Thinking about that makes me nostalgic and a little sad.

It's not that I don't want to connect with you guys, but it's more that I think that most of us have already moved on, and the people who still log in log in because hey, it's not Facebook lol

Wow, asshole.
Seriously?  I'm not angry at them, I'm just not going to be like "everything is absolutely fine" like everybody else is.  We were lied to the whole time and I don't think that being disappointed should be considered an unrealistic reaction to it.  Sure, it's a shame we lost another member on the site (not that you ever post anyway, so why should even give a damn about that?) but I don't like it when people make a big show about leaving and I'd rather that if Miku wanted to leave, they didn't tell everybody they were lieing about who they were.  After being lied to on a scale for that many years, even if it isn't particularly surprising; I'm not going to be like "I fully trust you now." like some people do.  Nobody should expect me to trust everybody.  That doesn't make me an asshole.  Calling others assholes though certainly makes you something though.  You don't even go here, so what's it got to do with you? 
Whoa, you two. First, loomy. Don't go looking for a fight. You're free to say that you disagree with what he said, but just out and out name calling like that doesn't make you look like the better person in the situation. I'm just saying.

And Aryeh, I completely agree with you, it is realistic to feel disappointed or hell, even betrayed. In this situation, I wouldn't blame anyone for being upset. Even Miku/Sean was prepared for it. I don't know about everyone else, but I never said I fully trusted him after his confession- I chose to believe the confession, but if he had chosen to stay, yes, there'd have been that doubt. A deception like that does indeed make it difficult to offer your trust to the deceiver. So your feelings are completely valid.

I think that, more than trust, what people are trying to offer here (Kinfin and myself, at least), are acceptance for who he really is and a sense of peace before he leaves. That little, dying flame of kindness that, so often, has been found a pile of ashes in the world. I don't trust anybody, more than I can know for sure, but I'll be damned if I don't try and be that glimmer of kindness and hope in someone's life.

Ergh, it's hard to explain what I mean in words. In reality, it'd be as easy as a hug or a reassuring touch. What I'm saying is that I don't blame you for feeling how you do, and I think that most people here aren't offering their trust, but rather are trying to offer comfort and choosing to believe his confession in what must be a difficult and transformative time in his life.

Well, damn. Miku. .. I don't know what else to call you by, so please excuse me- but you'll be missed. I wish you wouldn't go, but I understand fully (I've left multiple times for varying reasons- if anyone can relate, it's me). I guess if you do go, I wish you the best in your life going forward. Know that you are someone beautiful and valuable just the way you are. Be confident and embrace yourself, make any changes you need to, and most of all please find what makes you happy.

I guess that's my final piece on the subject. Whether or not you're telling the truth now doesn't matter- I'd rather be wrong and look foolish then be right and leave someone truly in need out in the cold.
34  General / Social / Re: My ultimate confession on: November 28, 2014, 05:06:08 pm
Aryeh- I've learned that it's best to trust next to nobody- at least, when it comes to the internet.

I do agree with you that I wish we'd gotten to know the real person behind the screen, but by the same token, I understand why he did it.
35  General / Social / Re: My ultimate confession on: November 28, 2014, 02:47:57 pm
Also, I'm surprised you thought we'd attack you. This forum is one of the most accepting places I've ever seen- we will love and appreciate you, no matter your race, sexuality, national origin, gender, etc etc. Seriously, even if I haven't always agreed with folks, it always seems that we pull through because we care about each other.

It's nice.
36  General / Social / Re: My ultimate confession on: November 26, 2014, 09:30:38 pm
It was confirmed that it was Mike via IP address back on PPN. I remember there was a long discussion about it on the mod boards and if I remember right Mike said it was her cousins and apologized, and since nothing else ever happened afterwards we decided it'd be best to let it go.

In other words, not important anymore. Gotta say, I wish Mike would come and see our posts. I wish her/him could see that we're here for them.

It kinda hurts because as someone who's been in the same boat with depression and all, I want to help. So much. I want to be there for Miku. ...eck, I don't like all this heavy talk.
37  General / Social / Re: My ultimate confession on: November 25, 2014, 08:18:13 pm
If it were a few years ago, I'd have tanned your hide for being 8account. But the past's the past- nobody remembers who 8account was, but everybody remembers you.

As someone who also deals with mental health issues (depression, anxiety, and PTSD) on a daily basis, I can relate. Life's hard. Everyone wants someone to understand and accept them, someone to keep them company. Nobody wants to be truly alone. Be it through religion, friendship, or family, everyone looks for this. Don't apologize for being human. I did that myself for too long, and all it did was hurt.

Lots of people make fake identities on the internet. Hell, there's tons of jokes about it out there. It's that common. You doing it isn't rare, it's a common enough thing and honestly, every community the size that PPN was has at least a few 'fakers' out there. It's okay.

You're right, it's not healthy to pretend to be someone you're not. But you have you- even if you don't like it, there's nothing stopping you from changing things in your life. Work on what you CAN control and make things better for you. Your wit wasn't just something fake- like Ness said, you had to think of it and write it down. YOU.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'd be more than happy to accept the real you. Get to know you, support you, and be your real friend- if you want that. Because even if you weren't 'you' when we got to know you the first time around, you were and still are a part of our family. Even though it's smaller, I think that you'd be surprised how much we'd accept you- and I mean the real you.

You in school or something? O.o
No, I mean I feel behind in Omega Ruby. I've been working so much that I wasn't able to move as quickly as I usually would. I did get a shiny Lapras in Wonder Trade though- shit was cash. Speaking of shinies, make sure you all go and get your shiny Beldum from Mystery Gift.

I think I'm done with this site, I'm really bored of it  Lips Sealed

Knowing me I'll probably lurk but I don't know if I want to post anymoar
Hey, it's mostly the same for me. But I still watch over everyone. I just post when I feel like it, which, admittedly, isn't much.

But there's always the memories- and we've all had a good run. It's a crazy tale, looking back. And though we may never meet, I feel like the friendships that grew here really mean something to a lot of us. I think that's why I watch over things still.

I feel like I'm so far behind ;~; I was working so much the past few days that I haven't had a chance to keep up lol.

I like how it makes some of the Pokemon that had ridiculously low catch rates (Surskit, Skitty, etc) much more findable. The whole set up feels like it's there to encourage you to catch everything because of the little colored or grey silhouettes on the bottom screen. In the past I'd tend to run by without worrying too much about catching stuff because hey, why bother, but when there's something there to give me that little push... Well, my dex is sure looking good. xD

They stopped the kinect required thing a little while ago.

>tfw never played halo SP

Then again, I'm not super huge on space games cuz I just enough about science and physics that it ruins certain things for me. ._.
I know that feel, except with medical games. Like Trauma Center and Trauma Team (I don't usually play medical games so that's all I got lol). Don't get me wrong- I enjoyed them, and for the most part, they got their shit down pat. But when they flub up, it's incredibly hard and obvious to me, and it ruins the moment. xP

The reason I enjoy my right to free speech is because it's a slippery slope. Who determines what's allowed and what's against the law? What are the penalties for such speech violations? I hate to make the comparison, but in places like North Korea or whatever, you're more or less walking on eggshells trying to avoid saying something wrong. While it sounds to be fairly well balanced in Canada...

While I don't like or support any of the hate groups, I'd rather deal with haters speaking out than to give up my right to free speech. They can have their opinion- but nobody is required to agree with or listen to them. As long as they aren't hurting anyone, I'm fine with it. Because even if free speech weren't a thing, there'd still be people hating on various groups- they just couldn't express it. Not everyone is going to be nice or only say nice things, but there's a lesson to be learned in that you shouldn't take what some random person says too seriously, even if they're being cruel. Because opinions are just like assholes- everyone's got one. Chances are at some point in your life, no matter where you live or what background you come from, you'll run into someone intolerant or cruel. Such is life. *shrug*

Anyways, enough of this lol. What's everyone's plans for the weekend?

On the whole Coke vs Pepsi thing, yes I pick Coke over Pepsi if they're my only two choices because Pepsi is too sweet IMO, but if I really have a choice, Dr. Pepper all day every day. I could drink that stuff forever. The cherry flavor of Dr. Pepper is good too- I like how smooth it is. Goes down easy.

Granted, it isn't my favorite way to enjoy Dr. Pepper. Either pure or with a shot or two of a hard drink thrown in (I personally favor rum- mmm) is best by my count.

Real life has eaten my life.

I miss having so much free time. ;~; Who else is reaching this point in their life?
