I do not wish to be entered for this drawing
Sorry, but warning, this is going to be flipping long if you want to read it. Enjoy my essay xD
I’m more than thankful for my friends who I had before coming here from other fourms @finnhorizon @yauaustin202 @eevee @Xerxes @Moleland @Jumpidoll @Damafaud and anyone I’ve accidentally forgotten who I’d got on with prior.
Also for: This community, that there are many who I’ve had a great time with and became friends or at least acquainted with; The game itself which I’ve spent many long hours playing; The forums here in which I’m proud to play amongst other fans and fun people. Including streamers who I’ve gotten along with in the end too. I’m thankful to be a guide and to be able to help others. I’m thankful for my other guides too who are here. They all have been great to be with
Thirdly, I’m thankful to all staff I’ve spoken too including:
- The teachers which I’ve had for all my school lessons.The support I’ve received is phenomenal and you don’t know just how much you all mean to me. You help so many children and being a teacher isn’t easy in our society. But you put your all in to help me and the others in our school. For that, I am thankful.
- The Moderators which I’ve spoken to while here (And those from other communities too). You all contribute something different, something which we can all be thankful for from each of you.
ISW, I’ve probably spoken to you the least, but you’re fun, friendly and hard working here. I might not know much of what you’ve done behind the scenes either, but we know modding isn’t easy.
Rob, you’re the next least person I’ve spoken to you, but you’re friendly and I’ve seen you around more and so I know of your work somewhat. I’d love to be able to chat to you both more to get to know you both.
Fade, quiet but very much strict on the rules. You too have a caring side and you work hard for FoL. I’m glad to have been able to talk to you. You also have a more fun, laid back side when not just concentrating on FoL, so you have depth which I’ve been able to see.
Methnor and Ashe, I have to couple together. I’ve played FoL and ToL with you both and I’ve learned more and more to you all. You’re both super funny and friendly and I’ve enjoyed spending so much time in your company.
Tryphon and Plex, not only have I seen you here, on the Discord, the game and more, but I’ve seen you in other places outside of here, you’re both super fun, super friendly and good players. Plex, I’ve probably played with you more and so I enjoy time with you both.
Alfa, you’re like a parent from the internet and I’m so glad to have been able to talk to you. You brighten not only my day, but Wolfy’s too. Treating us both really well and showing us that people do really care, even if it’s just from over the web, it can be felt.
Jammy/Ruby You, as you should know, are too one of my friends from another forum. I’m more than glad to see you here and watch you shine like all of the others. You’re a great person in the FoL community and you always show to be proud of who you are. You truly represent many people from the internet, not just those from here. I’m honoured to know someone like you who truly shows fun, friendship, relaxation and you’re super open.
- The devs, not only here but other places, I don’t really know any of you well but, from those of you that I do know:
Xeddish, only thing I know is a bit of the art you’ve done but you’re amazing at what you do, so we’re thankful for that in itself.
Elsa, the updates which I’ve received from the original backing have been great and we know that you did a lot there to inform us, or at least to myself. I mightn’t have spoken to you much but the information is useful nevertheless.
TeaHacker, I got to see you in a place slightly away from the forums and I saw that others have fun with you, it shows that you have more of a fun side too away from the game work, so thanks for letting me see that side.
Boslof Hard working, quirky and has an extremely good sense of humour. I’ve been able to talk to you quite a lot and each time I’m slightly surprised. You help make me laugh every time. I’ve also seen you in game and so I’ve been able to see you at action that way.
Xblade I’m not sure what I can even say in a couple of lines. You’re super active like all your fellow mods and staff but I’ve spoken to you the most of all devs without a doubt. You’re one of the friendliest people I’ve seen and you’re always nice but also honest.
I understand how hard developpers have to work here and all places. Including those from elsewhere @Thingyman, all I can say is thanks for everything which every one of you devs do for your sites, even if we don’t always say thank you, please understand that we all truly believe in it. We don’t like disappointing people and communication is always great. May communication stay great and people can continue to work through our differences as is needed on forums.
Penultimately, I’m thankful for Wolfy. My precious treasure, boyfriend and love of my life. He’s made my life so much better, motivating me to keep fighting on despite problems we’ve both faced. He’s super strong and has plenty of problems with himself. We’ve both fought hard against depression and other conditions. I’ve been honoured to be able to spend time with him, not only on these forums, not only on the game or the discord, but literally everywhere. I cannot express just how happy I am to have him and how much I want my future to be with him.
Finally, I’m thankful for my family. Despite going through so many tough times we’ve pulled together so far and I’m glad to be able to say that.
My dad, we’ve not gotten along well in the past at all really. We don’t see eye to eye over almost everything. I really dislike his job and normally don’t like helping him. He’s not great with technology and so we’re complete opposites. He even thinks I’m always playing games even when I’m doing school work (Yes, I’m not on these forums or in game all the time) but he’s improving and starting to understand me. That means a lot to me. He’s changing for the better slightly.
My sisters. You’ve been through so much with me. Many tears have been shed between us both. I’m glad you’re both doing well with what you’ve been able to do. The one of you being a Uni student still, working hard still to make your dreams come true. The other of you has had so much on your mind no matter what… But you’re still hard working with your job and you help so many people too, you both have so much to be proud of
- Last, but most important to me without doubt… My mom. You’re the biggest inspiration I’ve ever had. The biggest inspiration to all those around you. You make me super proud, you’ve struggled all your life with so much but you’ve never given up. You’ve fought not only for yourself, but for all our family. I cannot express just how life changing what’s going on will be in the end. I know this has been hard, I know just how difficult everything has been for you and everyone else, but this is far from over. We will get through this. I have many here who’ve already helped us, but it’ll all be fine, I’ll be fine…
