Two years ago, today, I was pulling out all the stops trying to get Aaeru and Steve (the last two hold-outs!) to contribute a quote to Ryoji's Happy Birthday/Get Well card. He was pretty sick at the time, and we were all worried about him. Aaeru wasn't really good at that sort of thing, and Steve was still enjoying the thrill of being obnoxious ( ) (< 3 steve), and I pretty much had to ruthlessly guilt-trip them into oblivion to make it happen. I still remember sitting in my grandparents' kitchen thinking about how time was running out: it was 11:00 PM my time (10P Ryoji's time) and the card still hadn't come together. I was madly hunting Steve down (PMs, chat channels, email -- whatever it took), and Aaeru was "idk what to say O.O"-ing for an hour over it. But I was close. So close. ... ... aaaand it didn't end up coming together in time. THANKS AAERU ( ) (< 3 aaeru). But that's okay: I did end up eventually getting extracting the quotes and sent him the card a day late. I don't think he'd mind if I shared it, so here it is for the memories: Fast forward two years to 2015. A lot has changed. A lot has stayed the same (such as the Gravity Green 2013 theme for all of those who haven't sold out to be FuwaFabulous). I had this very weird moment as I logged in today to wish Ryoji a happy birthday and started typing on his profile page where I realized that just one program over -- one ALT+TAB away -- in OneNote I have charted the next year or more of Fuwanovel's future. I had this crazy moment of deja vu and nostalgia oddly juxtaposed against all of the new plans. There were a lot of complex emotions. So. What am I saying? I suppose I simply wanted to take a moment to thank everyone on Fuwanovel for being here. Yes, it's just a hobby site, but I've made a lot of friends here and I have a lot of fun together with you. I think a lot of us have funny little FuwaMemories like this we occasionally remember, and that makes me happy. The next few months are going to be bumpy -- I'm dealing with some new site issues which will be tricky to resolve (but possible, thanks to Nay's jedi guidance and help) -- but I promise to do my best to make sure Fuwanovel is here in another two years, and two more after that. After all, somebody has to wish Ryoji a happy birthday 'round here. : ) Happy Birthday, Ryoji. And DrKleiner! And Fiya, Khodan, and Hidekyu! -- And Keaton and Checkmate!
