Today is the glorious birthday of my fellow Ilium GMs, @Tegan and @unanun. The latter is a man who has grown in my estimation from annoying anime retard who upsets other players to storytelling badass who never disappoints. I despised the boy when he first joined Iwaku, but I could not have been more wrong. My bromance with him eclipses all that preceded it (yes, even Gibs), and were I to die from a rage-induced stroke this very day, I would pass from this world knowing that Unanun would carry Ilium to glory. It is a true honour to work with him. The former is my wife, who I met through this very website, in an online romance that sets a cripplingly bad example to whole generations of Iwaku idiots. When she first joined she pestered my roleplays with antagonist female characters who didn't conform to expectations, and for that I resented her. Arguments ensued, and unlike many she consistently avoided the banhammer traps. 2 years later, after her continued defiance, I flew across the ocean and proposed to her, in order to achieve victory. Now we live together in America, and continue to savage each others work. Now, since neither would want me to fill this thread with wishy-washy sentiment, I will say only this: It is not the hours, the days or the years between us. It is the moments when I catch myself watching you, by which I measure our life together. That I can spend each day beside you; that you still catch my eye across a crowded room; that I still look at you and see no archetype, no role or character, but instead the revision of my every belief. We have crossed so many obstacles to be together, and will cross a thousand more. I welcome each one, knowing you are with me. Never doubt that I love you with all that I have. My friend, my companion, my fellow adventurer. Tegan, you're alright too.
