More so when you’re supposedly gone, when you can see it all cracking at the seams but don’t have the strength to stop it. When you believe you are forgotten, or will be soon…
You will become stories, Cove. Never forgotten by those who matter most.
*curls on self and starts to sob* Same. It hurts so much. I miss when this place was full of creative and chaotic antics all the time, when everything didn’t feel like a recycling of something done a thousand times before, and comment chains actually got resolved, and I had more people on the site who I felt close and connected to and I didn’t…[Read more]
*I pat the cushion beside me, as we’ve all been transported into a large room full of couches*
Hey, don’t leave just yet…
I know exactly how you feel.
*i curl up into a ball*
For over a year I’ve felt as if it was my burden to help the site thrive, to bring it back to glory. My responsibility to return the magic and the community and the wonde…[Read more]
(oops, typo in the link, lemme fix that: https://www.queensparklekitten.tumblr.com/post/621510437889097728/i-did-an-altered-song-lyrics-thing-remember-how )
*Berry stops me in my traps as I try to walk away*
*she hugs me*
*i don’t struggle or stiffen*
*i stand there and let her do it*
…Y’know, it’s funny how I can see a post or comment from a new user going all “hi, i’m new, so what do we do here” and copy-paste a welcome routine comment that’s all excited and upbeat with all the singing and dancing…[Read more]
When you strive to make things better, masks and lies and disguised are inevitable. You have to fake hope for those who can’t.
*I pass you the *** of tea*
It’s not sweetened
*(after reading Cove’s long comment)*
*hugs Cove sobbing harder and harder*
That. Every–every word of what you said. Just. All of it. *sobs harder*
*Berry’s eyes are glistening at this point too*
“It’s true. Couldn’t have put it better ourselves.”
*Berry sits down with us and sips a cup of that tea herself*
*I hug you both back, crying even harder now*
I hope you like the tea
I’m glad I was able to put it all into words. It helps, I think, to really see the problem firsthand. But also hurts, a lot…
I was here during the time of the Open Chat, but not active. Now I wish I was. I have heard stories and legends of what it used to be like here, but it isn’t anymore . . .
I want to belong to something like that. I want to be a part of something big and fun and happy. I want the old site back.
Twig, you’ve always come across as happy and…[Read more]
I’m struggling not to cry as well… because I’ve seen this coming from a mile away. The series is over, there’s going to be fewer and fewer new people coming on. As people leave, there will be more and more holes, more and more emptiness.
And I feel the same.
The putting things back together, bringing life to the site, trying to hold together…[Read more]
I will stand by you. From the shadows, mind you. I’m not ready to be back in the light, not now. Maybe not ever. But I will stand by you. Always.
Having you beside me is all I ever wanted. You can be in the shadows, my friend, so long as I have you.
Gahhh stop you’re going to make me tear up
*I pull you into a bear hug*
You see me, Kira. You are perhaps the only one who does. So thank you, so much. That’s all I’ve ever wanted as well <3
*I hug you back tightly*
I will always see you. Always. Thank you too <3
*I hand you a cup of chai tea and start to whisper something under my breath, unintelligible at first but slowly gaining clarity and volume*
Chai chai chai chai
chai chai chai chai
chai chai chai chai
CHAI NYE THE SCIENCE GUY
*I shriek in an incredibly high pitched voice*
That’s my legitimate irl reaction to tickling, it’s a foolproof defense XD
*laughs and sobs and wipes tears*
You guys are so incredibly sweet, I swear– *sobs some more*
Yeah. There’s still a little bit magic here. Like the support we still give each other when somecreature posts venting about their troubles. And the rare post that really does still get wild and silly and insanely off the rails. And just…yeah. Those lit…[Read more]
*i hold out my arms*
Twig, I know you hate hugs, but I get have a feeling that we could all use a group hug right now, even you if you’re up for it.
We will stand together. Always. It’s the small moments that build the big change.
We are not going to stop. As long as I have people to stand with me, I’ll stand.
*i nod and hug all of you guys, as does Berry*
*(it’s less uncomfy if I initiate)*
Oh Fudge, yes! Stay! You were my first true friend here, and without you, I never would have truly become part of the site. If you left . . . I don’t know what we would do without you, Fudge.
If you have to leave, fine. I understand. But . . . for selfish and un-selfish reasons, I think we all want you to stay.
*I close my eyes and try to avoid crying*
I saw this yesterday, I think, maybe two days ago or something. I told myself I wouldn’t comment, that I shouldn’t, that this wasn’t my place to say something. But today I came back to the post, and saw the new comments, and… I couldn’t not comment.
I’m new, in terms of the site and especially to the peop…[Read more]
*Berry walks over to @leilamofwoodsbeyond, and, without a word, gives a big hug*
I’m glad you told your story. That’s why we’re all here; we shared ours stories.
You being here is so much more than enough. We can’t do this alone, and every person counts ❤️
Thank you, Leila, for your story <3
We need everyone we can- old, new, or somewhere in between. There is no alone with this. There can't be. You being here is more than enough, as Cove said.
*I wrap my arms around Berry and give up on not crying*
That I can and will do- just be here. <3
Leila, sometimes you have to comment, even if what you do say doesn’t make any sense. It means you care. And I care. I don’t know you, like, at all, but reading your comment makes me want to know you.
I feel like I’m about to cry, reading this whole thing. And I almost never cry, emotionally.
*sniff* Hey guys. I came across this post whilst spoeing (sry about that). Anyway, I don’t know some of you. But I’ve read this post and all these comments, and I’m tearing up. I joined last September, and wasn’t here long enough to experience all of these events. However, I’ve heard tales and legends of what it used to be before- a Wonderland-…[Read more]
Thanks Twilight, that means a lot. I just… there’s so much to think about. The stories may never be the same.
They won’t be, actually.
But… there’s a new story rising. One which will change things if it lasts.
As for better or worse…
Only time will tell.
🙂 I get it.
Also, if you don’t mind me asking, which story?
The story of tonight. Or, to be completely accurate… the story of tomorrow.
Thank you twilight. I’m sure you all will make new memories, new magic, a new wonderland. You aren’t held back by the past, which both chains you and sets you free. Good luck with everything ❤️
What do you know of monsters?
That’s the question I’ve asked of myself many a time. Because, after all, I’ve lived a good life. I have friends, my parents are accepting.
And yet… I truly know monsters.
The monsters that creep in on you while you sleep, make you want to cry. The monsters that hunt you during not just the night, but during day as…[Read more]
Oh. Oh, wow. That’s actually kind of scary.
Yes, monsters are everywhere, but so are other things, other people, that keeps us fighting them, keep us alive in the world. Siblings, parents, friends, even enemies, keep us fighting, fighting for life and love and moments of laughter and happiness.
There are moments where people almost let go – and…[Read more]
I had something long written but my phone died so let us try again.
Monsters. They creep through the darkness, inserting themselves slowly into your life. Spinning masked stories and kind words as they begin to spring their trap. Wrapping you in gilded lies filled with a grain of truth, longer and longer until you can no longer tell the…[Read more]
*i’m sitting at the computer refreshing tumblr yet again*
*Berry comes in*
“Hey Twig. Your site-iversary was a few days ago. And we still haven’t done anything for it.”
*i sigh* Yeah. I keep forgetting. And…I’m not really sure what to do exactly. I don’t feel like making a post on the Open Chat doc for people to go “happy site-iversary!” and…[Read more]
I don’t really know if you want me here, and if you don’t, just say so, I won’t mind. *this time I’m not dressed with a grand dress, rather a t-shirt, leggings, and sneakers .*says softly with a smile, if you don’t mind* happy site-iversary, Twig.
It’s okay, man. You can stay if you like.
“Want some pizza?”
*Berry holds out a slice to you, along with the sprinkles in case you want ’em*
I love that song. Happy site-iversary as well. *I sit beside Berry and Twig silently*
Happy siteaversary, Twig.
*I raise my glass of butter beer and smile sadly*
Sorry if you don’t want me here, its ok if you don’t!
*I quietly sit down next to you guys*
*a cup of lemonade appears and I drink it happily!*
The time to say goodbye has come to this site much too soon.
I may come back some day, or I may not. I don’t know, but I must say that I enjoyed my short time here.
I probably won’t leave much of a legacy behind. Maybe some people will remember my name in the back of their mind, or maybe my stories will be remembered.
I don’t want to leave…[Read more]
Bri, thank you. Thank you so much for everything. You’re such a kind, amazing person and I’ll miss you a ton. I hope everything gets better with your mental health and that one day, if you feel confident enough, you’ll return to us even better than you already are. This step is a hard one to make but it’s so important that you did. I love you. We…[Read more]
I don’t know if you remember me, but I remember you as a very kind and awesome user on the site. I understand that you need to leave, but I really do hope that you come back. Bye, and I will always remember you. -Twilight
Mental health is important. Like I once said to you, we’re here, anytime. You are a wonderful writer, an amazing friend, and a pretty one at that. I hope your condition gets better whenever you have the urge to come back and you know you aren’t ready yet- remember us.
We’ll always be there for you 🙂 No matter where.
Thank you so much Bri. You’ve always had such a kind, good heart, even when you were hurting. Your cr.ackhead photos made my day, and you have a killer sense of humor. The weird but funness that was Jisona— Did we ever decide what to call that?— was great, and I so enjoyed writing with you. Thank you for being an amazing friend, I love you…[Read more]
Thank you, Bri. I hope your mental health gets better, and maybe one day, you’ll return. I love you. Good bye, Bri. I’ll remember you. <3
I’ll miss you. I hope you feel better, and honestly, I should probably do the same thing. You’re brave, and I’ll miss you. SO much.
Awww Briley…I wish I’d gotten to know you better before you left, but we will not forget you. You’re such a nice, awesome person and we’ll all miss you SO much.
Listen. I don’t know if you’ll ever read this, but let me just say, if you’re going to get addicted to this site, now is the perfect time. If it weren’t for the things I like, I would be as crazy as Rafal (OK, maybe not THAT crazy)
DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF. SGE is a HARMLESS thing to get addicted to. Besides, with everything going on right now,…[Read more]
Last night you tore my heart apart
Broke it down for the last time
Now I’m in another world, don’t need no chart
I’ll bleed and bleed while I say I’m fine
I came to you with soul bared eyes
I came to you to speak my truth
But you broke apart my empty cries
You didn’t even attempt to look me through
I was lost in the dark and I tri…[Read more]
This is beautiful, I don’t know what to say besides that.
The writing on this is impeccable. Everything resonated in me.
I’ve only ever known what beauty is because of my friends. Because they opened my eyes to something that I couldn’t, wouldn’t see otherwise. And I love it. Every second of it. To see the stars, once and for all, to smile with abandon… it’s what I’ve dreamed of since I was young.
But now… Part of me wonders if it was worth it. To see the pain…[Read more]
you’re inspiring eloquent Fudge, I honestly could never have written down my feelings it such a smooth, soulful way
I get it. Sometimes I wonder if it was worth it, coming here, making friends, worrying more and more with every passing day. Learning about all this darkness, and not just learning it, seeing it through others. Even seeing it in…[Read more]
Thanks, Lucy. <3
We will never know… and while that's hard to think about, it's also beautiful in a way. We made our choices. We're now here.
We’re here now, and the now can’t change. (that sounded weird and confusing oops)
Everyone is broken. Even me. Even you. Or, we were. Before our friends help mend us. Before we are forced to heal, so we can help others. But there are so many people who have never healed completely, who we have to be the ones to help. That’s why this site is so amazing, because we can help people across the world from us mend.
I wish I wasn’t seeing this now argh.
Beautiful, Effie. You pinpointed it exactly- we try to mend those like ourselves.
Aaah sorry… My computer glitched and put the time that you commented this much earlier than it says now- it said I was five days late.
I wonder about that as well… so many times.
I wonder, who would I be if I’d never joined? If I’d left? If I hadn’t put myself out there, hadn’t made friends? So many what-ifs– it’s what we’re built on. I think I’d be so much less mature. I’ve been hurt so many times, but I’ve grown because of it. I’m a better person because of it. And I’ve made…[Read more]
Lol I’ve been posting a lot of these lately, but this is a new chapter of ‘Beyond The End’!
Chapter Six: A Child is Born
Hester was evil. Well, not as evil as Sophie, but evil nevertheless. More evil than Anadil and Dot. That’s why, out of the three of t…[Read more]
Awww so cute!!! I love this chapter, and I love his name!!! So cute!!!!!
That was great! Please keep tagging me. I love them! Short but sweet (but not too short lol) Also Nathan is my dad’s name so when i saw that i was like “wait whaaaat??” But i still like the name a lot!
Despite the scars that burn on my wrist—
Despite the tears that fall from my eyes—
Despite the gashes that pierce through my heart—
Despite the screams that pound on my mind—
Still, i fall further
Even the blind man knows the path he takes
Even the crying child find their way home
Even the broke’ winged bird returns to its nest
Even the vicio…[Read more]
*you walk into a big sunny clearing full of balloons and streamers all the colors of the rainbow*

*Takes a bite of cake* Yay, SGE pride party!! *takes a second to celebrate the lack of a panromantic demibisexual flag anywhere on the internet yet the implied presence of one here*
*I enter on a cloud, and proceed to fall off*
“LET’S PARTY! Thank you Twig and Berry, for this wonderful party!”
I take a slice of cake. “Yum!”
*i strut in wearing a lesbian flag no sleeve romper with a bi flag tie-head band, a demisexual flag flannel sweater wrapped around my waist, and five inch sneaker heals with the grayromantic flag.

I’m trying to figure out my sexuality, but…[Read more]
Ooh, fun!! *I pull out a sketchbook and sit next to you, doodling some of my own ocs embracing their queerio selves or being allies

Hey guys! So I wasn’t tagged for this, but can I join anyway?
*I enter in a poof, wearing a bun, black sweater with a white dress to my knees , and light brown sandals*
Of course! This is how site parties are, literally anycreature can join! Asking to be tagged is kind of an RSVP but there’s zero problem with people just showing up either. Everycreature’s welcome!
*i strut into the room with a Taylor walk as Me! Begins playing from the speakers*

Sorry I’m late!
*I walk in wearing a dress made entirely out of rainbow-coloured sparkles*
Okay, so I know most people on the site know me as bi, but I realized I’m pan. So… yeah.
Oh! Also, I have someone to introduce y’all to. She made an appearance at the Old-New party, but I want to introduce her again. My imaginary friend, Rebecca!
Oh, right, yeah. I remember her. She was Ava’s first friend! They still haven’t done anything together . . .
*Ava bursts in wearing a tye-dyed rainbow t-shirt she made herself and a pair of worn jeans.*
