I play Vampire The Masquerade... There, I said it.
Go ahead... get it out.
FFS Control yourself, you ass!
Right... so where was I... I'm an Uber geek, well, not that kind... oh shut up you know what I mean. While Uber was dead, I was, understandably, quite bored. I began searching for writing sites but they seemed to either have silly rules or insisted that users only diarrhea shit rainbows for one another to slurp through a straw of faggotry. So I continued searching...
One day I stumbled across a forum style site called myworldofdarkness and started poking at it for a reaction. Well it wasn't a creative writing forum but it had creative writing, right? So I hopped into their chat and well... I used to role play when I was a kid soooo why the hell not? Bored in Africa and all. Yeah... I got hooked.
So there I sat, day after day in the game and talking with the various other players and about a month into it, my character, who had pissed off the members of his own clan and got himself kicked out, was walking through a park and met another vampire who offered to help him out. So ok, he had a patron, I was learning the game so it meant I had someone to hang out with and bounce questions about the game off of. Well, gradually, we, the players started talking more, and the characters of course, they ended up starting a relationship... So did we.
I've found the woman of my dreams. She is intelligent, kind, has a huge heart and is incredibly creative. She writes like I've never seen before and makes her own jewelry. She dreams of opening her own crafts store one day... and of marrying me.
We've set a date for this coming May but given recent developments, namely: "Fuck this shit I can't be away from her for four months at a time! Africaland can go suck a cock!" I'm pretty damned sure we're going to move that forward a bit.
She has a daughter, well, we have a daughter. She's three and decided to start calling me 'Daddy', without any prompting by either of us, the third day I was home. The first night I tucked that little girl into bed, kissed her goodnight and she replied "I love you daddy." the big ogre leaked a little. My daughter screams my name and will do anything in her power to get in front of the camera and wave to me when I call on Skype.
I'm a happy man.
Hope all of you have been well, I'll drop in from time to time.
