Uh huh... I think you do remember or at the very least, I believe you can recall early experience with the ASG. Maybe someone caught your fancy and in curiosity, followed them into our neck of the woods, being overwhelmed by our wonderful hosts and completely forgot you followed them in...
That happened to me maybe once... or twice in the past but I tell you, I've learned my lesson. Introduce yourself or at least say hello before you decide to get into more trouble than you're ready for... sudden appearences have sparked some great moments... that's how Admiral Neon was wed a few years back online - two weddings, one here and another in her homestead, but then again - that is also how we became suddenly widowed. A great time in the world of role-playing and overacting yet sad that we had to say goodbye to perfectly wonderful and well established characters.
... the end of the saga is although we had only planned on my character dying there and hers here... in the end we grew separated ourselves. Commanding a starship or taking a night off in the local pub all of a sudden seems much more different when you have a wife (and that's just an internet wife... can you imagine the catastrophies of one in reality joining your sim divison? For those who've done it, I commend you
Don't get me wrong, in the end I was able to cast interests in our friends to come see and experience our dual-wedded lives however it required a lot of personal time, planning, last minute adjustments ... internet children? oh no... but oh well, c'est la vie. It's nice to have a mission briefing of ... talk to the XO, CO's babysitting... and getting more advice about child birth and child care than any fictional character ever wanted to know...
You have a similar story? Maybe one of our really, really cool (seriously, now!) mugs or t-shirts passed your way and you just said,"Way Cool!" I'd love to hear that story - that'd definitely, without a doubt make my day.
