We Are Nowhere & It's Now

Yes, it's that time of year when I take part in gratuitous self-indulgement in the train wreck that has been my first 365+1 days here! Now, I was writing up a completely different kind of blog than what you're probably used to for my Bulbaversary, one that would be incredibly hilarious and sarcastic and long, but... some things happened that I don't really want to have to write about. So, just your typical mentions, woe is you. First, let me give you a small overview of the good things that have happened since I've joined, then we'll get to the mentions.


  • I joined. Pretty obviously.
  • I had a real blast of the first few months. Probably the craziest time of my life.
  • I got into some amazing music, mostly coming from people posting in the music thread.
  • I met some wonderful people, most of whom are mentioned below.
  • I vastly improved with my image editing skills. I sort of went as I go along, and as you can see above, that's come quite far.
  • I opened a banner shop, which was recently reopened and offers avatars as well, and even signatures with links in the banners. Drop by sometime if you want to!
  • I started writing The Abstract Ideal of Staying Alive. I've started writing many more than this one, but something just feels... different about this one. Feel free to read it in The Writer's Workshop.
  • I've changed. On the one hand for better, on the other for worse, but I've changed nonetheless.
  • I joined Tumblr.
  • I've gotten into a couple of amazing series—Homestuck and Avatar: The Last Airbender. Still catching up with the latter one, but with a little time, I'll be watching Korra soon. And trust me, two series in one year is a record for me. :I
  • I fell in love.



I'm glad to be here for that last one alone. But now... mentions.



There's a lot of people I would like to mention, but who I couldn't think of anything substantial to say for... but I kinda felt that including all of them in a mention list would be kinda spammy, so I didn't. Needless to say, if you're not on the list, you're a wonderful person but we either don't talk much, don't talk at all, or I just can't think of anything to say about you because I'm awkward like that. And if you kinda feel your blurb was spare on details and read a lot like everyone else's, it's because I am really not good at writing these.

Thank you all for a great year here, and I hope we'll all stick around for many years to come!

    it's always been quite an experience to talk to you and get to know you.
    Oh... thank you. ^^
    Amazing taste in music,
    Literally the best compliment.
    purveyor of the metal gifs,
    Why yes, yes I am.
    helpful, and always making things interesting.
    This is about where you start lying. xD
    It may take a bit to get used to you, but you're honestly one of the nicest people I know.
    O_O Thank you...
    Yes, I used the word "nice" to describe you, and I mean it.
    I can't believe it!

    Happy Bulbaversary, Cap. You've made this forum a better place, and I hope you stay until the end. ^^

    Undecipherable? Please expand on what you mean.

    Glad I can make you laugh.

    Also hope you're loving Avatar. I literally just finished the original series this morning. I watched Korra when it was on.

    @Kurloz Makara Pretty banner! :O

    Now, on to business. Why you trying to steal mah initials, man?! >:O (And into something I have difficulty pronouncing because I know extremely little about Homestuck other than that it pops up on my dashboard all the time and has pretty fanart. Speaking of dashboards, I'm sorry I spam yours with Avatar, Silent Hill, and kittens all the time.) You will always be Cap to me. :I

    (Belated) Happy Bulbaversary to you, Derek! :D
