Yo so. This is going in my queue at the very, very end, and it’s best there!
As many of you already know, lexi-shapiro and I are no longer going to roleplay as Lexi or Kip. We both have a lot of reasons for it, but the long and short of it is we neither of us are having fun RPing any longer.
I know that for a very long time while I RPed Kip, I had multiple problems with RP. I think—and bear in mind a lot of this is likely just my thinking—I did a lot of things that made people want to RP with me less and less, and that gave me a lot of anxiety, especially most recently. That’s all I really have to say in the matter.
Beyond that, I have a lot of personal projects coming up. For those of you interested, I’m working on a comic, over at flashcomic. It’s about a cartoon villain whose shows is cancelled so he attempts to find a new hero to defeat. I’m so excited for Flash, so incredibly excited, and this will be my main project as I venture into my first year of college.
I’m really grateful to have spent these past…. just about two years, writing with you all. This community is so great and so well-woven, and I’m sad I won’t be a part of that anymore but it’s for the best, and I’m glad to have been on this adventure with you.
I’ve really grown, a lot—I grew out of my worst stages of depression with this blog and I feel I’ve learned a lot about myself. Thank you guys for everything.
A few shoutouts, to those who really helped me along:
cdwalker: Thank you a lot, TJ, for RPing with me straight for 2 years, even when I was in a state where people rightly didn’t want to. I’m grateful you stuck it out with me, and I’m sorry I could never skype you cos I panicked easily. That’s my bad. Charlie is such a great character, and I hope you do more with her, because you are a great writer and an intelligent woman.
lukewren: Sam, I know I was repeatedly an ass. I’m grateful you tried to explain to me what I was doing wrong and I’m grateful you tried multiple times to bring Kip out of his low points, and tried to be optimistic. I know we never really talked, since I stopped RPing Sparrow, but I hope you do well in life. And please let Luke keep that arm. That one arm.
imnotaterriblevampire: Jeff I love you. Like holy crap, thank you so much for chatting with me and for having so much fun with me and listening to me when I felt so low. I still plan to skype you, often, and I’m sorry we didn’t RP as much as we should have. Maybe it’s better that way, though—better that Conrad didn’t break Kip’s dumb hopeful heart. It’s better Conrad always has that support, even if it’s shadowy.
And of course
lexi-shapiro: Jess I am so glad Kip had Lexi for this past year. Her support is what got him through a lot of bad days and RPing with you such a happy if damaged pair has been an honor. I really hope your last year at university goes well, and please feel free to skype me at any time I am online.
I’m so glad our babies grew the way they did, and I’m so glad they got a happy ending.
There are many other people I’m grateful for, and I hope their time online lasts, but there’s not much more I can say without repeating myself.
I love you all a lot, and I want to end on good terms with all of you. If you ever want to hit me up, my personal is may-sparrow, and my Skype is mayachenleck.
I hope you all have a good one, because you all have a lot of potential.
