    You could maybe exchange contact information with some of these

    You could maybe exchange contact information with some of these people, and perhaps stay in touch? If you did that, you wouldn't have to be all "I miss you... the memories..." ??

    To Doveheart, Owlheart, all my buddies in EmberClan as well as Eth...

    Travel, Dustfur misses you. You hardly ever post anymore. Ender, Scarlett, Cassie, Ebon... love you all. <p> Rainfall misses the old EmberClan, so very much. I think besides Lilystar I am the last surviving member... <p> Styg, Cairo, Argy, Kohona, Star, Teddy, Ice, Four... K, never really knew you that well, but you were an amazing leader. Stygian, same. Star, anime buddies forever, you should really join again. Cairo, I remember you raided EmberClan and as Stormblaze I fought back. You were amazing. Argy. The most amazing pervert I ever knew. Teddy. Good luck with your hubby, name your children after me!!! <p> To all the old people in BC and Waffle at JayClan: I really, REALLY wish I had know you better. The most amazing RPers in their time. I've heard stories. And if you ever come back, remember to say hi, whether I am Riverear, Rainfall, Paradox, Sanctus Gray, Thirteen, or anybody else. You ALL need to be remembered. <p> Maybe if I immortalized them in song... >:3

    To Jazzstar (or Jassstar)

    Jazzstar, I know you aren't reading this, but I want you to know I still remeber you. <p> ~|•|~ Flashback ~|•|~ <br> I had just dicovered NOOK Role Play an was fascinated. Once I learned the Role Play slang (res, rp, result, etc) and how to rp, I joined the first Clan I saw an ad to as Bramblefire. It was SeaClan. Jazzstar was leader and the only cat in SeaClan. She was the first rson I mt and friend I made in rp. It was the most fun I had in my life, roleplaying a fake cat in a fe clan with only one other person. I would always call her Jazzstar even though her name was JassStar. Anyways, one day, Jazzstar didn't post. I checked every minute for my best friend, but to this day, she didn't post. Idk what happened. I a so sad after that, I stopped rping for a long time ;-; it felt like I knew Jazzstr irl and shedie or somthing, leaving me with a hole in my heart. When I finally came back to rp, I looke back in Seaclan camp to find countless se<_>x posts and ads. I felt like crying bc I knew rp trned from the imaginary place of my dreams to a restless secret se<_>x place. I stopped rping AGAIN and now I come back just reading ads (which are mostly for se<_>x) and reading stories and never getting close to anyone again.

    To all my pokemon friends, Wells,Shinx, (fine, Emma too..)

    I miss you so much(except you, Emma,) when I think about you... Goodbye Shinx...good buddy...~MOONFALL (aka, Rainbow, or Moon.)
    <P>
    Now for my goodbyes...ok,Wells,You were the best friend Ive ever had. Weve resisted attacks,storms,being locked out,all together...ish. I always liked you in a special way,but never really told you. We never officially dated,but we were accused of it so often...well,like once. I remember,when I was caught,I couldnt tell you goodbye. Those first few days without rpg,I thought of you all the time and I stil miss you,even after almost 2 years. There are a million things I want to tell you,but wouldnt make any sense unless you understood what my train of thought had been at the moment. So I guess all I can say is...DOMO ARIGATOU GADZU MASHTA!!! (Thats Japanese for thank you for sharing or teaching.) Goodbye to Poppy,my old Torchick,a good old friend,and a loyal pet. Thanks and goodbye to all my old friends!!

    Man, we had some good times, and I know I kinda just disappeared, I'm really sorry about that. You were the one I missed the most when I took a break and I'll probably never find you again. I miss you.

    <br> (( But if you're still around and you see this, go to 'woodhouse' res one. I'm staying hopeful that maybe we'll talk again. ))

    A Memorial

    All the people I dearly miss. <p> Brine & Sam <br> You two were my friends when I first came to rp, and its been more than year. I really miss you two. <br> ~ Steel <p> Rae <br> You were my best friend in rp, and you came wth me when I joined two rps together. I really miss you and hope you come back. <br> ~ Steel <p> Endie <br> Venom, Endie, whatever your cled. I just want you to know I mis you, and the time we spent together, if ony in rp, was great. I know you left because of family issues. But I hope you return. <br> ~ Steel <p> Wingdust/star <br> I knew you since we were kits, we grew up together, then had three litters. I really miss you, and hope you one day find your way back to LightClan. <br> ~ Thornfall <p> Bluestar <br> I know your not gone, but your not always active. So I am writing one for you. I really appreciate the time we knew each other in LightClan. You were an amazing leader. <br> ~ Thornfall <p> Nightclaw/star, Flamestream, & Tearfoot <br> I knew you three the longest, but we didn't spend a lot of time together. I miss you guys, and PearlClan <br> ~ Moonfur/Steeltail <p> Merrydream <br> I watched you grown up from a kit in SunClan, even if I wasn't there much. I miss you and wonder where you are. I know I always supported you, and hope to see you again. <br> ~ Moonfur <p> And finally, <br> Aquastar <br> You were my inspiration for the years I have been in rp. That last speech you made before you left for the real world, it was amazing. And I never forgot it. I know you left, many, many moons ago, but I'm glad to be in PearlClan. <br> ~ Moonfur

    In Eternal Remembrance

    Karma, l firstly want to say that you are the one who has crossed my mind most often. You were the most awesome albino cat in all of the land, and if l could l'd tell you that l have taken good care of your candy stash. And of course, YOLO, my dear friend. We shall meet again. <p>
    Havoc, Syn, Siberia; whatever l should call you, l want to apologize. I was insensitive and ignorant. I never did get to give you my entire apology before you left, but l'd like you to know that l printed your Social Standard and to this day it hangs on my wall. Stay unique.<p>
    Moonscar, l never really got to know you, but your legacy is mine to continue. I fear that l am the last of Evil Within, and thus your greatness should be recounted. I hope your memory never fades.<p>
    West. I know l pushed you away, but l enjoyed your company. You and Hyrule as well as Zelda managed to brighten my day every single time, be it sneak attacks or snowball fights. Stay alive, Zelda.<p>
    Nebula, my birdy boyfriend, l never got to say goodbye. And thank you. I know l was annoying, but you revived my character twice. That was fun to RP. Cookie!<p>
    Zekk, l know a demon ate you. I just know it.<p>
    007! My most faithful friend! Empress of practical jokes and just overflowing with energy, you taught me to love tricycles. Please come back. <p>
    Toxin, Rocketa, Juggernaut; whatever l should call you -- thank you for not giving up on or ignoring me. I know l was (and still am) annoying, but l think that if we tried one more time, it'd work. I've changed, but unfortunately l shall never see you again.<p>
    Shadowheart, my SunClan love. I remember when l fell off of that tree branch. You and l were perfect. I wanted to say goodbye.<p>
    Alice Liddell, my little demon. I regret to inform you that l have lied to you the entire time l have known you. My name, age, family, gender... l'm sorry. I thought l was being safe, but instead l was sowing seeds of guilt. I just can't bear to tell, but l can't keep it in. I hope you forgive me. Ryan was probably the better choice. <p>
    All these rues, regrets, and retributions! Oh, let me clear my conscience and float across the parallel petals of denial.
