Frances Posted January 19, 2015 Share Posted January 19, 2015 It's been a fun year. However, it's time for me to leave. Life's caught up with me, and I honestly can't dedicate all the effort and energy I owe you guys anymore. Being part of the Aurora community for nearly a year has been an amazing experience, and I'm glad I was able to share many moments with you all, from sleepless nights of binging through round after round to absolutely ridiculous events. We've gone through a lot of people in that year. Some have stayed, some have left. Some have even come back. And for those who have not, we always find equally awesome people ready to take their place at every turn. The server has changed, too. For the best? I don't know, but that's what I hope. It's the reason why I stepped out of my hole of fucking around on ridiculous characters and generally not taking anything seriously (as well as being hyper-sarcastic) to try to lend you guys my help. And as a community, I can say that we really are getting shit done. We've grown to astounding levels since last spring, and managed to maintain a level of quality both in RP and in staff which honestly impresses me. I'm just one gal. And while it was my pleasure to assist however I could with whatever jobs needed to get done, I have no doubts that the server will be able to go on fine without me, and that new prospective members will rise up to take mod and admin positions (as they always have). Besides, we've still got Skull's unfaltering resolve to hang onto, and I'm convinced the guy's still going to be around running the show far after all of us have left. As for me, all that I wish is for the server not to forget its roots. We're here to enjoy ourselves. We're here to roleplay, and share our experiences in a game about spessmen in space. Not to enforce a charter of mindless rules. Not to uphold an order of staff dictated by seniority and prestige rather than a person's ability to speak their mind. Not to argue about needlessly petty details, when there's a bigger picture that needs to be taken care of. We're just a bunch of dudes on the internet, trying to play a silly game. So if you ever feel the stress getting to you, take a deep breath, relax, and remember that no one's out to get you. We're supposed to be here to have fun. This is about making friends, and building something together. Keep it real, Aurora. -Frances Quote Link to comment
