    Default the adventures of slutttbucket shorty

    Had to dig through my livejournal a bit to reinforce some faulty memory timelines.
    September, 10th, 2001: I had joined FFO and been chatting there for... a month or so, maybe a few weeks. One day I joined and they kicked me for no reason! Tried to re-join, I was banned. Fine. Searched for other FF forums - #eoff was the next result with the most people in there. Why not! Spent the night chatting away and left the room several hours later with omg a boyfriend (Kuecari). Before I signed off for the night, I joined the forums (as Demosthenes) because people prodded me to. The next morning September 11th happened and that was weird. It was devastating and horrible, but I had a feeling about being so excited because I had so much fun the night before and felt like I really found a group of friends that I connected to. I don't remember much of 2001 beside Kuecari, Aexoden, Angel and Seifer. Kuecari and I break up after two weeks. A little while later, I started dating Aexoden. Scottie hones in on me I and I break poor Jason's heart in the first few months of 2002.

    2002: The rest of 2002 I don't really remember as far as EoFF goes. Parents got divorced, a lot of things started happening in my personal life. Beowulf is probably the most prominent person I remember being there for me and spending time with. I don't know what I'd have done without him at that point in my life. If I remember correctly, I was mostly running with DK, Joaquin and Tokki-Ru by that point in time and they + Beowulf are my best friends. m4tt and I meet in #eoff and get "married" and spend time playing footsie for months, essentially. This is probably the year I had my name changed to Shorty, though I can't remember.

    2003: I get introduced to the world of LJ via m4tt, who I get together with around... April? My crew is still DK, Joaquin, Tokki, Beowulf, with introductions of Daniel, Miriamel. Mikztsu, Cheffie, Nait, Tiffiekins, RyuKishi, MecaKane, Britty, Mindflare, Denmark, Squally Leonharty, Giggles and CloudDragon are in there somewhere. Drama with Scottie and ladies of EoFF happens. Pretty sure #analgoatfarmers was created this year and thus the bond of Spiff, Kane, Hito, Nicolas, Halan, Linus and myself was created, featuring some members who randomly popped in from time to time. Acquired a microphone. Lots of recordings and voicechats. m4tt and I break up and that sucks. Pretty sure this was EoFF Webcamfest year. I'm pretty sure this is the year I spoke to Knox on the phone for the first time and it was one of the most delightful phone conversations I've ever had.

    2004: Windshear befriends me and Daniel finds this hilarious. m4tt and I get back together. lol Sarah's 15 instead of 19. Things end with m4tt. I befriend Hito (I think this year?), Winged Sorceress, PG and VampireCrono. I get together with other obscure members of EoFF for very small amounts of time. I feel like I was mostly AWOL from the forums but active on #eoff. Daniel and I start talking on the phone pretty frequently at the end of the year. Pretty sure this is the year Hito and I spent four hours on the phone hopped up on Mountain Dew.

    2005: Daniel and I get together and spend a bazillion hours on the phone together every day. My mom finds out and hates him because he is 20 and I am 16 but we still find ways to talk and spend time together. I befriend foaface. I become a little more active on #eoff and Daniel puts the fear of god into everyone to vote us for Cutest Couple for the Ciddies and we win. I am an asshole and break his heart when I meet up with Spiff in Las Vegas and sparks fly. We make up later and are as best of friends as ever but by this point in time I pretty much feel exiled from EoFF and leave again for a while.

    2006: I was mostly AWOL. Except I moved within 45 minutes of Aexoden and he avoided me like the plague and six years later harasses me to visit him.

    2007: Moved to Arizona with Spiff. Then broke up a few months later. Was still mostly AWOL.

    2008: I start inching back toward EoFF. I thiiink I met Joaquin this year. Definitely in #eoff a lot more. Play Dokal for the first time and make a looot of new friends. Start talking to Rantz and we become best friends. Start becoming more active on EoFF. I thiiink I became friends with Misfit and Jowy this year, and by association, friends with Roogle. Pretty sure this was Ventrilo chat year. Roo, Jowy, Misfit and I had a four hour conversation and Misfit fell asleep on the phone and Jowy went AWOL, so Roo and I excluded them and talked forever. I want to say this is the year Rye and I became besties which consequently meant I became [strike]friends[/strike] enemies with Huxley.

    2009: Meet Linus and have a river floating pow wow with him and Spiff. It was simulaneously awesome and awkward. Not much else happened this year.

    2010: Briefly reconnect with m4tt the night before his wedding, awkwardly! That was weird, since no one had heard from him since his nutso girlfriend trashed everyone on EoFF. Drama with Caraliz and every other member and nonsense being posted on the front site. I ran the EoFF Beard Contest and somehow won Best Female that year. Raistlin and I become friends after seeing eachother around on the forums for nine years. Met up with Kane who came to spend a couple days on my couch with his Canadian friend in November. Met G13 in December and it was amazing.

    2011: Ranztien came to visit me for a month and we had a lovefest. During the time he was here, we met up with Genius Lynx/MDNA and Kalilung when they came through Phoenix, then NCG when we went to San Diego, then Necronopticus, Lamonda & Kawaii Ryukishi when we went to LA. Later that year I met My Little Pokey. Rantz and I broke up because I was lamesauce. Met up with Roogle at a gaming convention and we ate sushi and gossipped about you lot. I'm pretty sure I met up with G13 again around December or possibly November.

    2012: Start inching my way back to kindof posting more around mid year. I meet up with Jiro and Jentleness. Jiro and I drive to San Diego and nearly die and he is one of my favorite people I have yet to meet. We have a night of lecherousness with NCG and say goodbye to go to La Jolla and LA the next day. Rantz and I start dating again in June of this year. Start making a lot of new friends and old connections in my most active year to date. Join the CK Competition and [strike]I wipe the floor with the contestants[/strike] win by a couple of strokes of luck. Met Hito and krelbel recently and they were delightful. In two weeks I will be meeting Denmark, PG after him and Happy Noodle Boy later on. At the end of the year I will be visiting Rantz in Sweden for the first time and plan to move to Sweden to be with him next year.

    I joined both Aiyon and God Hates Fraggles at one point, but I cannot recall anything from either of those forums except mindless bulltroutting.


    Lots of things, places, people and nonsense probably weren't been mentioned because this is the bare bones of trout that has happened since I've been a part of EoFF.

    Summer of 2000 I discovered EoFF. Things happened between then and now. 2006-2007 was my away period, I spent more time away from EoFF and doing other things online. 2008, I return to EoFF. I ran events, and tried my hardest to make EoFF a fun place, maybe for better or worse. Still try, but now I'm also in charge of running fan art showcase and the DA group.

    Meh, I hate writing about my own history.

    I am just... that ace!

    I was a fan of Final Fantasy (duh), and after spending time at a site named GameTalk, I ended up here, I'm not sure how (There's a chance I may have been linked here by a site called Final Fantasy VII Citidel, but I'm not sure. Either way, I ended up here - it was one of the first sites I really liked.

    I remember a couple of threads, my earliest is a thread about how the FFVI cast managed to (SPOILER)survive a fall from the sky and I can remember someone coming up with reasons how each character could. I'm not even sure I was a member then, but you know... I was pretty all over the place online, but that's how it goes.
    The one true comparison to love and hate is; when you allow either to overcome you, it can make it so that you can’t think of anything other than that one person...

    I registered on this site over a decade ago, and it feels like another lifetime. Seeing some of the names mentioned in this thread is nice - many of the names are faces I recognise from when I first joined. I would consider myself more a part of EoFF's past than present (though hopefully its future too!) but I can't deny the influences, directly and indirectly, it has had on me. Joining these forums feels like a lifetime ago, and I think that's because, in a sense, it was.

    In one sense, the way I'm making this post is an example of that. I'm posting from my smartphone, in bed. When I first joined, I was on a 56k connection with BT that disconnected every twenty minutes or so, and a mutual hatred of an ISP helped me strike up one of my first friendships online - with Lindy/RyuKishi. Me in 2002 used to hate having limited time on EoFF and particularly in #eoff, and would have love to do what I am doing now.

    I think the board has had (in)direct influences on my life in other ways too. One example would be my love of Rachmaninov's piano concertos - music I'm only aware of because of a classical music thread from several years ago on these forums. Which I believe either MILF or Denmark recommended. I still partly associate that music with this board.

    I'll try to make a rather more lucid post later, though it's been.nice to read about the experiences of others so far.

    Having said all that - one thing that hasn't changed since I joined is my sense of humour; it's as bad as ever.

    aw hell let's just put it all in one easily accessed eventually archived forum where anyone will have access:

    i typed /list on FFChat.net and saw that there were more active channels than #tripletriadx where I spent about two years, so I just inadvertently bumped into #eoff and #fflegend. #ffonline was really snobby and elitist! thank you guys for being nice! I remember when crono_logical wasn't just cl_out all the damn time and when people actually got banned for being idiots. Rather quiet and reserved as a teenager and kept to myself on the forums a lot of the time. Never shut up on IRC though, wow! Still remain in contact with as many of my friends from that era to this date!

    Around 2004, I hopped around from households a lot so I wouldn't have to worry about walking long distances during inclement weather conditions to school and work. Lacked a lot of structure and screwed around for most of that year just doing my own thing without any real plans for the future. I got my lawsuit money and spent it irresponsibly the second I turned eighteen because of how I'd gone most of my life without ever being able to have "nice" things. I wound up starting a long-distance relationship and moved to Milwaukee! And then that didn't work out too well because I was young and irresponsible. I moved back home and worked a mind-numbing full time job while I just went through the motions every day.

    That cycle went on for a good two years. I wound up eventually getting involved with someone here. Started as casual cute flirting, ramped up to lots of bad situations and we grew to resent each other a lot and there were lots of disagreements. Good times and bad, but these things are life experiences. After a rough split, we've both found happiness elsewhere in our lives. Never fun to go through! I shied away from the internet for a while after that.

    Until I needed to look something up for FFIX one day. Started posting on the forums again with warm reception by old acquaintances and then I popped in IRC and was given strict instructions to stick around for a while. So I accepted that gracious offer and eventually saw numerous old friends come out of the woodwork one by one shortly after! I'm growing a lot closer with old friends of mine from the past and that is definitely a much needed change in my life.
    Now I come here when I get bored at work and spam the music forum most of the day!

    I joined in 2002. I rather quickly became a popular but divisive member because on one hand I posted a troutload of long and presumably interesting posts but on the other hand I had my head too far up my own ass to take a joke. I won a troutload of Ciddies and was apparently proposed for Knighthood but rejected (accounts have varied on by how much).

    About seven months after joining I founded my own message board. Some of you have probably heard of it.

    Since that point I've been in and out and my opinion of this place has fluctuated depending on the staff and my mood, but I've never been able to leave completely because I have too many memories attached to this place and there are too many interesting posters whose posts I wouldn't get to read if I weren't here. Right now this is definitely one of the better message boards I post at.

    I could probably write a long essay about all the experiences I've had here, but why bother. Most of the people at the board these days probably wouldn't remember most of the people I'd be talking about anyway.

    I started listing people who have made my experience memorable but quickly found out that my memory wasn't reliable enough to make a complete list, so I won't bother because it would probably offend someone if I left them out. You hopefully know who you are anyway.
