OOC post - so long, and thanks... - Trowa Barton

About OOC post - so long, and thanks...

Previous Entry OOC post - so long, and thanks... Jul. 7th, 2005 @ 08:40 am
If you haven't already, please read this OOC post in Quatre's journal.

There are almost too many things I'd like to say - too many to get and keep in any cohesive manner, so I'll simply say thank you. All of you who have been reading quietly, interacting once in a while, or playing along wholeheartedly with us - thank you. You made this experience one that none of us will ever be able to replicate or forget. Both the Trowa that you've all come to know here and the person who just sits here and lets him use her hands to type are proud and grateful to have had this time with you all, and saddened to see it come to an end.


When Quatre's host convinced me (tricked me? lured me? led me down the primrose path? yes, yes and yes, but I'll admit that I didn't make it all that tough for her to do so) to take this role on, I had no idea how strongly attached I would become to this character. I certainly had no idea how attached I would become to the other players in this game, and to those of you who've been following it. Had I known how many sleepless nights and crying jags over Trowa's troubles were to be involved, I might have run like hell in the other direction. I'm glad now, in retrospect, that I had no idea what to expect. It was much more fun to have it all be a surprise.

Now that we've all come out of the closet, as it were, I hope those of you who were my friends before Solacium began can forgive me for not letting you in on the secret. To those of you who figured us out, thank you for keeping it quiet for the ones who didn't want to know who the fangirls behind the curtain were.

In a way, this isn't truly over - this permutation of Trowa is so firmly ensconced in my head that everything I write is tinged with him (as more than a few of you have noticed *cough*). A few of us who write have talked about writing fics in the post-game Solacium universe, and if you're willing to read them I'm more than willing to write them. Setting Trowa aside completely would be like cutting off my arm (and I'm not terribly willing to do either).

To my fellow players:
Hilde: Thank you so much for bringing your natural sense of fun and adventure to this game and this character. I stand in awe of both your guts and your aplomb, and I respect the hell out of you as both a player and a friend.

Relena: I was thrilled when you started following this journal as yourself, and even more thrilled when you agreed to play. Thank you for not killing me when you found out who I really was, and thank you for being one of the most supportive people I've ever known, both within the game and outside of it.

Lu/Iria: I don't even know where to begin. Talking and playing with you has always brought lightness and merriment to my soul. Thank you for being so strong, for putting up with way more crap than anyone should ever have to, for every time you made me laugh until I cried. The Une Claws is still in that box, isn't she? Maybe we should let her out now...then again, maybe not. *winks and grins*

Zechs: Everything you've ever said about the family you choose has never rung more true than it does today. Thank you, for all the things I cannot name.

Heero/Abdul/Dorothy: Every day you stun me with your creativity and your brilliance. Thank you for stepping into this role so flawlessly, and for making both this experience and my life that much better and richer for your presence. I am blessed to count you among my friends.

Duo: Your sharp mind and your brilliantly astute wit not only brought this role to life, but also drew us closer together as friends. Thank you, for making me laugh myself sick over and over again, and for becoming so important to me.

Wufei: You challenged me in so many ways - not just in-game and in my writing, but in life and in my opinions as well. Thank you for...bloody well everything. Including all the new swear words you've added to my repetoire, you bastich.

Quatre: My Quatre. You got me into this, and now that you can finish my sentences and know what I'm thinking before I do, I could never and will never let you go. The Trowa in me will always, always be crazy about the Quatre in you. Forever and then some, love.


From Trowa and from the person behind him - thank you, each and every one of you. You all have made this experience unforgettable.

I could certainly bring up memories, but most of them involve flinging of peanut butter and guacamole. *smirk*

I thank you in return for putting so much of your heart and soul into this experience. In RPs past that I've been involved in, I've found it's so easy to lose track of the main reason you RP in the first place (or, at least the main reason for me) - having fun.

Thank you, Trowa, for letting us into your life. It's been an enlightening and strengthening experience.

*laughs* I suppose there are worse things that could be flung.

I thank you in return for putting so much of your heart and soul into this experience.

*rueful smile* There were moments when I had to draw a chalk line across my brain and tell Trowa to stay on his own damn side, but all in all I think it was worth it.

Thank you, Trowa, for letting us into your life. It's been an enlightening and strengthening experience.

You're a terrific person, Dusty - I'm glad to have been able to get to know you. *hugs*

Waah~ Nii-chan. ;_; *clings so much*

*ahem* Like I said in Q's post, I understand why this is happening, and I wish the best wishes to you. ♥

And... *pitches a tent here as well, for future mischief* >:D

But seriously, I don't know what I'd do without you, Trowa - T!Host. You came online at god knows what hour to talk to me before my move to Florida, and you have no idea how much that meant to me. It still means a lot to me. No matter if you're Trowa, or T-host, you'll always be Nii-chan to me. *SNUGS SO MUCH*

*hugs tightly* Don't cry, Mija - you'll make the host cry...again. *glances at host* *rolls eyes* Christ on a cracker... *fetches her a tissue*

No matter if you're Trowa, or T-host, you'll always be Nii-chan to me.

I can't even begin to say how honored I am, both Trowa and host. *glances at host again* Good lord...at this rate she'll be out of tissues before lunchtime. *hugs again*

*grins* A word of warning from the voice of experience. Once he's there, he's there for good. And yes, awfully damn smug about it.

Man, I am such a girl! I'm weeping all over the place now... between yours, Zechs and Quatre's posts... just thinking about it makes me want to cry more.

I hate to say goodbye, but I do understand. You all have brought a lot of enjoyment to my days. I have so loved the play and interaction between you and those who follow the game. I will miss you all.

Thank you so very much for all you've done, and all you've given.

*hugs tightly* If it makes you feel any better, the host has been crying for at least a week.

We owe you a debt of gratitude for all the support you've given us through this. I can't tell you how surprised we were when you started doing the weekly wrap-ups - I think you were personally responsible for bringing a few dozen other readers to the journals. Thank you so much for being so supportive of all of us.

I can't say that I'm not sad. I had lots of fun, but I can understand why this is happening. I hope everything goes well for you in the future.

I truthfully don't know what I would do with out you or your host. You were there for me many a time when I needed someone. You made me feel so special and loved. An email from you would make me lose my mind with happiness and I'd start bubbling. *sniffles* And now I'm crying. I won't say I won't miss you, I will so much more than I even I know. But now that I know who Trowa!Host is I don't think I'll be as shy as I am. *smiles*

*hugs tightly* Thank you so much Nii-chan. For everything.

*hugs you back* Thank you for being so active and supportive of this. I loved talking with you in chats, in emails and here. You're a vibrant, lovely girl and I hope you never forget that.

But now that I know who Trowa!Host is I don't think I'll be as shy as I am. *smiles*

Host: You'd better not be! ^__^

It has been a joy reading your interpretations of Trowa. I shall miss watching you all interact, and I'm glad you are still going to remain close even thought Sol is being put to rest.

Truthfully, it is us who should be thanking you. It has been most enjoyable to say the least.

Something like that. *winks*

Thank you. I'm very glad to know this has been an enjoyable experience for the readers as well as for the players.

My dear Trowa,

(Link)
I guess this will be one of the few times I'll be using this icon as well which I made in attempt to match you guys' icon and join in in the fun. And oh what fun it has been! Leaving high school and going to a high level technical college where everyone is older than me when I wasn't ready for it was difficult, there were many moments that all I did was sit in my room and cry when I should've been working. I was frightened, alone, and depressed, and a lot of people never knew about this side of me, not even the person I live with.

But you and the rest of Solacium were a beacon of happiness and warmth during my struggles. I would look forward to your posts and be truly laughing for the first time in days. I had so much fun joining in and sitting on you, teasing Wufei, chatting with all of you, getting hugs, giving them, writing stories on GBoys Angels, etc. The list goes on and on about all the things that we have done together. Thank you. While you guys don't know it, I was able to draw positive feelings from your antics and be myself, eventually overcoming my own feelings inadequecy.

I hug and kiss all of you for everything. While I am sad that this is over, I understand that all good things come to an end. Thank you for such a lovely glimpse into a world without war, but full of friendship and love. It may have been fictional, but for someone like me, it was a wonderful place to get away to and come back from whenever reality became to harsh.

With love and fond memories,
Jean

*hugs you* I'm glad we were able to be of aid to you in your time of need. You were always among the most enthusiastic and cheerful of our supporters, and we are all grateful for your presence here.

Trowa, you have a truly beautiful soul, and I'll miss your posts. Though I've rarely responded to them, on more than one occasion you've brightened my day beyond measure. For that, and many other things, thank you. ♥

I can't believe I'm actually tearing up! *sniffles and wipes eyes*

Thank you. The host has already told you how thrilled she was when you started following these journals - we're both glad to know you enjoyed them so much. *smiles*

(Don't worry - the host has been in and out of tears for the better part of a week now.)

As I said in Quatre's LJ, I suck at commenting, but I always read, and enjoyed it very much.

Thank you very much for the hours of fun reading. And I would happily read any fics you are willing to write. *hugs*

*tight hug* Loved having all the opportunities in the game to explore Heero and Trowa's friendship, and the sadist in me delighted in the few instances where I got to trot out Dorothy to stir up the pot. My only regret is that Abdul never got to flirt mercilessly with Catherine. ^_^

You already know how excited we all were when you and Duo agreed to join us - we couldn't have kept it going this long without you. Dorothy was just wonderfully bitchy.

My only regret is that Abdul never got to flirt mercilessly with Catherine. ^_^

Cathy: *crooks finger* It's never too late! ^_~

*sniffles* Oh dear, first reading Q's post, and then going backward and reading everyone else's...

I definately shouldn't have read this before going to work!

However, since I have, it's only fair of me to say that it is us who should be thanking you! From the beginning you have been an awesome person, I'm only sorry that life got the better of me and I had to just stick to reading intead of commenting (that burned me so bad man. But it was still fun to watch Char and Cass plot against you all. *grin*)

However, though good things must come to an end and all that, I am looking forward to getting to know your host.

Oh, and the fic thing? Go for it!

*hugs* Much love, from an avid reader and fan.

*sniffles* As I said to Quatre, I've had a blast being a shameless pervert happy fangirl and reading all of the entries and following plots and teasing you mercilessly. <3

I hope there's a lot of bad good 80s music where you are, and I'll keep a fresh jar of peanut butter on the shelf just for you. *hugs*

My God, you should see some of the crap the host has in her CD collection.
host: Hey! Those are classics!!

*ahem* She also says to bring the peanut butter to Y-con so everyone doesn't have to travel so far for lunch.

*hugs tightly* Thank you, Leslie. Thank you for being such an active participant. We were all thrilled to have you along for the ride.

...but now that I see the names, well, duh!!

The host is having the grace to actually look a bit embarrassed...for once.
