That reminds me: I really need to pick up a copy of Hedwig. Occasionally a snippet of it will pop into my head, and I'll be like "Hedwig! Cornell! Emily! Dang!"

Battle High, and the massive clusterfuck it eventually became, in spite of my best intentions. I'm sorry.

You were my first GM. I remember the adventures of the Property Destruction Brigade, or whatever our nickname was for the GURPS winter game we had with Micah, Drew, Andy and Joe. And playing my first Exalted game, where Heather-as-Abyssal was trying to convert people to her character's death cult, and Katie's character tried to start a fight (and lost).

As for non-RPG things, I remember sitting outside of Katie's locker talking before high school, about things both trivial and not, and the birthday card I made you sometime in high school joking about how neither one of us believed in Kim's astrology.

Ah, high-school gaming. So many of those campaigns were complete disasters, and yet I don't regret a minute of it. (Well, maybe I regret a couple of minutes of it. But not that many.)

Thinking about the rest of highschool makes me feel older than I probably ought to. Did we really have that much free time during our ostensible learning time? Were we really that young? Dangit, am I really turning 25 in three months? Argh!

(... sorry. They really were good times, but, y'know, ambush age angst.)

S'okay. lasafara did the same thing a couple of days ago to me, with her story about teenaged gamers discovering tabletop RPGs.

I will say high school gaming taught me my first rule of GMing: 'no GM's plan survives first contact with the players, so learn to improvise'.

I can't name a specific one, but there's been quite a few times we've been discussing random BS at a con, and you'd just be "Wait... what?" And the discussion just got funny-haha after that. Usually involving furry fandom.

Downloading your reading of SPIDER-JEFF one time when I was feeling sort of down. That really made my day.

(Not technically something we did together, but...)

Spontaneous special bonus memory:

Discussing core conversations from the JSL guide, and puzzling over what the hell the "Botan o osu to kotae ga demasu" thing was supposed to be all about.

The crazy RP we did as Jeff and Ness. Those were some of the best times I had at Clockwork. :)

That and late-night conversations about Dr. Andonuts and Jeff doing each other's biographies. XD

I don't remember the actual name of the story, but I do remember Legolas and M-preg. Probably Aragorn being away and the elf being lonely. With his waffles. Forever.

Shit, is this the one where Aragorn died and Legolas is in a weird abusive relationship with Boromir? And he has like four assbabies? And there are some references to the horn of Gondor that the author didn't think out all the way?

Oh man, it saddens me that the topic of Aragorn/Legolas mpreg makes me try and remember which story it was. I've wasted my youth.

The rare times our characters got to play off each other in RPs. Specifically Hanzo/(Your M3 guy who's name I've forgotten) and Mile/Jeff. I really liked how both those sets of characters interplayed with each other and wouldn't mind figuring out more ways for such intereactions again someday.

That'd be rad. (Of course, there's always the potential of eventually getting Atom to get RPGWars off hiatus and pick up where Mile and Jeff's Magical, Dubious Mystery Tour left off...)

I thought it was Rachel's, and Kelly was a model? Either way, though, it was awesome. I should bug Rachel for copies of more of those photos.

Holding out against the Plague of Caterpillars in the Fitch common room with an Exalted group too awesome for even eight players to contain. The iRock and the corpse-hat. Golf club duels. An unexpected trip to Rathess for shiny flaming flowers. Too many zombies. Four die stunts.

"Have no fear," I exclaim, "what dark fate may befall us."
"Not even a death knight can handle 'The Pollus.'"
Then I let forth a blow that explodes like a missile
Into the crotch of that fucking Abyssal.

Dammit, you don't have any right to mock the raspbees! You weren't even there!

Also, for a second I thought :<( was an emoticon. "I was sad... with a pointy pig nose? Okay, I guess that's fair."

Also also, GIP.

Asking for trouble, what with including me in that game, but hey, it was fun. I also liked the game with Queasy, the motorcycle-riding orc-creature who should have died ten times over, and who I managed to get that crazy-ass ax for.

...I'm kinda amazed at how much my GMs put up with.

Driving to ConDuct, getting lost, singing along to Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego.

Also, being the only other person besides Jon who would understand *all* the references involved in "Bongo the Headless Fusion Gunner".

And, be it needlessly added, all things Blue.

Spintho and Josh from the very very old Mage game.

That really feels like it was ages ago.
