You don't know how much consideration I have given this and it's been a hard choice. As I mentioned, I will be quitting Spiral Live. You may wonder who would take over for me. Well Nick and I have been thinking of ways to decide. Maybe interviews? We don't know.
I am thinking of having one last HUZZAH party but I will need your help and the help of the community to do it. Crash a few servers and have an amazing time. Heck I might consider giving away a few crowns.
A wise man once said, "When one door closes, another always opens." For me, that other door is my novels. As I mentioned in my last post, I am writing novels and I hope to get them published in the next year or so. I want to stay in touch with all of you and I have already followed many of you on Twitter so if you have not followed me or I have not followed you, PLEASE go follow me so I can follow you back. You can find my twitter here. For those of you who I have not added on Skype, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the skype button.
As for my other blog, yes I have another blog; you can find it here. This blog I use to write about my books, life, etc. I have only had it since March 14th and I already have 85 followers! That's a crazy lot of followers! Some people have 1,000 and I hope to become one of them someday :) Aside from all this, many of you have already followed my blog and I would love for more of you to follow it or check it out so we can keep in touch :) If you click here, it will take you directly to the follow page. Now what's a goodbye without the Von Trap Family?
To all of you in the community who I have met over the past 4 or so years, I want to thank you for being the most amazing friends and just being so warm and caring. There is not one day I won't think of all of you here in our amazing community. I want to especially thank a few people.
(No Order Intended. Sorry if you are not on this list but I could only fit a few people who have really came close to my heart.)
Edward Lifegem: Ed, you have been like a brother to me. For the past few years we have known each other you have been so supportive of me and we have shared many things from the Wizard City Protectors all the way to your birthday and beyond! I know that you will go far in our community and I hope you stay well! I will forever remember our silly chats about blogs and who has more viewers and followers and how I'd have to catch up to you :P Thanks for always being there for me Ed. Your a true friend :)
Nicholas Lionrider: Nick, don't even get me started. We argue sooooo much but thats what makes us the best of friends. We have shared so many things together it's not even enough to count! Wizard City Protectors, Shadowrider Academy, Spiral Live and so much more. Yea we still talk all the time and you get frustrated every time I can't make it to a Spiral Live episode (like tonight) but you and I are bros and even after W101, we will always chat and more. Thanks for being a really good partner and an amazing friend :)
Talon Thunderblade: Talon, you are probably the one in-game friend I have the closest friendship with. We have met IRL a few times and we will most likely meet up again. We have been bros since the beginning and nothing can change that. If it's skyping together and talking about W101, life, or dare I say it-girls, we always end up laughing and we are always going to be the best of friends. Thanks so much for all the great memories and all those card packs you gave to me when I asked ;)
Justin Shadowblade: Justin, where do I even start :P Going from Spiral Live mishaps, to revealing predictions of the new world and calling out KI, you sure have guts :P You've got an amazing sense of humor and I always enjoy the skype calls with you and Nick. I don't remember how long we have been friends but I can assure that you are a nice guy. Thanks for always being there for me Justin :)
John Spiritshade: Mr. Sparrowwood :P John, you have been an amazing friend from the start. Even though you live across the world, we always enjoy our conversations in-game and on skype. Long talks about HTML and web design, exchanging Wizard101 tips, we always had the best of time together. You run an amazing blog and I can't wait to see what you have in-store :) Thanks again for everything and for always helping me when I was about to die in Wysteria ;P
Autumn Dreamwalker: Whats there to say besides your one in a million :P Autumn, you were one of the first to know about my leaving Wizard101 and i'm glad I told you so we could have that interesting yet short talk on Facebook :P You have always been there for me in the best of times and the worst of times and you always were there when I needed someone to talk to. I am sooooooo glad I got to meet you a while back and start an amazing friendship because you really are an amazing friend :)
Lionblood Family (Tom, Bailey, and the kids): Let me just start off by saying I wish I had a family like yours :P You guys are some of the nicest people I have ever met in my whole life! I always enjoy talking to you guys on skype and having late night calls with Bailey :P Tom, let's just end it at you are an amazing guy. When you joined Spiral Live for episode 15 and you were giving away a 1,000 Crown code as a contest prize, when 5 people got the correct answer you gave them all 1,000 Crown codes. What kind of guy does that!?!? The Friendly Necromancer does :) Bailey, ever since we met by you being on Tom's XFire a while back and I thought it was him and then we met up in Grizzleheim, you have always been a true friend and always know how to make someone smile :) As for the family, you guys are just out of this world. Nothing could describe it better then that. Tom, Bailey, remember our Waterworks run with Fallon? Well you can always remember it here :) I will leave you guys with one thing.... "Mommy you me hero'd up?" ;)
Ravenwood Radio Cast: Stephen, Fallon.... Why do you guys have to be so epic? Honestly! You guys are amazing friends and I love logging on and having a nice chat with you guys. Stephen, when we do talk on skype, we have amazing convo's about W101 and life in general. Fallon, well we just talk about life and Wizard101 in-game :P You guys were there from the birth of Spiral Live helping us figure everything out and I just want to say thanks again for that. Spiral Live is no Ravenwood Radio but it is where it is today thanks to you guys :) You guys are two amazing people and I am so glad I got the honor to add and befriend both of you :)
Fallon Shadowblade: Fallon, we have been friends for quite some time and throughout this time we have had an amazing friendship. If it's questing in Mooshu or in Grizzleheim, we always have a blast. You have helped me countless times and we always enjoy late night rides on the Blood Raven :P I will always remember our adventures in Wizard101 and I want to thank you for being a really great friend and always helping me in the time of need. :)
Christina Icedreamer: Christina, you are an amazing person, flat out. When Nick and I were having problems with our Stephen interview on Spiral Live, you jumped in to help us and joined us on the show to save us from catastrophe! I remember Bailey, You, Jonathan, and Me were at Calypso and you were like "Blaze, you better have a friend slot open so I can add you ;)". Why do you have to be such an amazing person!!! UGH! I always will remember our discussions in game and I just want to say thanks for all the amazing memories :)
Kelsey Fireheart: Kelsey, ever since I first met you you have been such a great friend. If it's doing a few quests with Diana or Coco, or even just chilling at a house, we always have fun talks and amazing experiences. Do you remember when last year you me Diana and Coco were at a Dragonspyre house? I think that's when we met. Thanks so much for always being there for me and giving me someone to talk to :)
Cody Raventhorn: Coco for Coco puffs, where do I start ;P Well Cody, when we first met during Paige's spring dorm decorating contest and you had that stupendous garden, I knew we would become amazing friends. We have shared so many stories and we have traded many tips on housing. I will forever miss having you at my house and giving me tips on how to do a trick or if something looks good :P Aside from that, you were always there when I needed a hand in a battle or just someone to talk to. Thanks for being such an amazing friend and always being there for me :)
Diana Wildheart: Diana, where do I start... When we first met a while back, you and I became immediate friends :) That friendship took us on many paths such as dark dungeons, howling hyenas (What?) , and the Wizardly Board of Education :) From getting stuck in your house, to long long long battles in dungeons, we always pan out and I just wanted to say thanks for being there for me all this time :)
Paige Moonshade: Paige, the Housing Queen of the Spiral. Why do you have to be so kind? Just like Cody, you have always helped me in my time of need in housing and in battles. You have an amazing personality and you always were there when I wanted to talk :P I will always miss your tips you'd give me and I will miss seeing you at parties but Paige, thanks for being there for me and always lending a helping hand :)
Ditto: Where do I start off? The Fabricated American is full of surprises. You are most likely at Pax East right now and I wanted to go to it and possibly meet you but that never worked out :P Ditto, we started our friendship with an interview a long time ago and I am glad it happened because it led to us becoming great friends. When the Ravenwood Ball came around, my goal was to find you and I was un-able to. Thanks to Nick, I finally met you in-game and got to add you as a friend. Ever since, we have been great friends and I will miss our conversations :) I will always be checking your blog and I hope you are doing NaNoWriMo again ;) Thanks for being a great friend and Ditto, you are the #1 Fabricated American in the world ;)
I know I missed a few people and i'm really sorry. I hope you can forgive me. I just want to thank everyone once again for bringing me into this community and making me who I am today. You guys are an amazing community and I am so glad I got to spend a good 4 years with all of you :) I hope your lives open up many new passages for you to follow and I hope you all have a successful and meaningful rest of your lives. I hope this finds you all in the best of health and mind.
*Keep It Frosty!* :)
EDIT: I just realized this is my 330th post so i'm glad I get to finish off on an even number ^_^
