One thing about me that’s strange to many, is that I try and keep all my memories. I keep everything that will remind me of the best time of my life, physically and virtually. I never threw out anything that was given to me or anything I’ve created or handmade. I’m like a weird crazy museum. Recently, I’ve realized I need to stop and if it’s important, I would remember it in my heart. *cheesy*
Anyway, that’s just a back story of what I really wanted to write about right now.
I was never talented in anything specific and so I spent most of my time admiring other people and their talent. Back in the early 2000′s, I met a group of people that influenced my life in ways they would never know. It was a fan fiction clique online that started from KobKorner ( ) and then later made it’s way to a community started by a talented writer and the sweetest person, Lovefia. She called it, “Fan Fiction Realm 2.” Writers from all over the other forums flocked here to share their talent and chit chat. It was at Fia’s community forum that I got close to people whom consider my very bestest of friends even up to this day.
And like how life goes, all good things must come to an end. After several years, Fia had decided to call it quits; the forum and website would be shutting down. Everyone was devastated. A few days after the announcement, I had suddenly thought of something that might have been too good to be true. I had requested if I could keep FFR2 up to save all the stories, because once the website and forum goes down, so will all the stories. To my surprise, she granted me permission. I was thrilled to have the chance to save all the fan fictions. My purpose was to just save the work of all the writers so newbies would be able to enjoy what we all enjoyed. Like how I said in the beginning, I liked to keep all my memories and those memories were the works of my favorite writers. It sadden me a bit to learn that there were some who were not too thrilled with the idea and thought I had other intentions. I guess I can’t please everyone.
Today, the stories are still available online through the FFR2 forum created to store all the fan fictions. A few hours ago, I logged into the admin panel of FFR2 after several years. I usually log in to the forum once in a while but hardly ever into the admin panel. I must have been a horrible geek because I had just noticed the “Email Log.” What’s that??? I asked myself and clicked. SURPRISE!
I was confused! I went into my forum inbox and didn’t see her messages in there. Then I realized she had emailed me from the forum to an email I don’t own anymore!
I’m years late! I feel so horrible. Fia had been trying to contact me all along and I had let it slip pass me. The past few years that went by, I thought everyone went their separate ways. We’ve all found lives that didn’t involve one another, and I accepted that because I eventually did the same.
Fia, I apologize. You must have felt I was ignoring you, but believe me, if I had received these messages, you would have heard from me within hours (because it just might take a few hours to spazz in a long email all about how much I missed you and all our memories)! You were dear to me and you were never forgotten nor will you ever be!
