PostSubject: It's truly been fun.    Thu Jun 19, 2014 11:38 pm

short version: I'm running away due to paranoia and shame, and I realize I need to be more focused on things.
long, autistic version:
Spoiler:
 

With that said, no matter how many times I rewrite this thing, it’s always going to be at least a bit long-winded, pretentious, self-hating(but not emo, I’m not emo, I insist, really) and hypocritical, so I suppose I’ll just go the full way and address as many of you all as I can, regardless of intimacy. I’ve never been fond of farewells not addressing everyone, even if it’s perfectly understandable why, but I’m gonna try. Whenever I see a farewell thread of someone I recognize and I don’t see my name on it, I feel a little twinge of sadness, very much unreasonable to feel that way, but what can I do? Hence I’ll address as much as I can.  If I address you and you don’t remember who the hell I am, it’s cool.

Spoiler:
 


On Word, this is like, more than five pages of text, and even I think I might be a fucking lunatic at this point, but I plan to leave here, where I’ve been lurking for over a year(A short, yet long time), and made some truly irreplaceable moments, I think it’s a little understandable for me to get overly sentimental and autistic about it, right? I’m a long-winded, sappy, sentimental guy, so yeah.

Lastly, I won’t reply, whether it be on skype or to this thread, or wherever you decide to contact me. I’m leaving for good/until I can’t take it and come back and face the embarrassment of having typed up that shit-long farewell message. Hell, the reason I addressed as many of you as I did was precisely so I’d feel too embarrassed to talk to you all afterwards. I don’t intend to, or at least, the me at this time don’t intend to come back.

While I’m not going to miraculously change overnight and become a dirty disgusting normalfag or anything, I do plan to actually become more serious at studying(I’ve used the excuse of studying many times, yet to be honest I never did), more serious at completing things(Whether it be a visual novel project or that anime series I’m stuck at episode 38 for over half a year)(It’s Macross 7, for reference), and more importantly, more serious at learning Japanese so I can enjoy all the untranslated porn or RPGs or whatnot. It sounds like a very material motive, but this shit’s been my life ever since I watched Doraemon when I was three or something. Pathetic, perhaps, but that’s how I am.

Not blaming the chat, but it’s been distracting me from a lot of things. And ever since I avoided the chat due to the VN project, I’ve realized that. Hell, I had the Muv-Luv trilogy in my backlog since forever, and I finished it in a week, that’s a lot I finished. Anyways, if somehow I pull the trigger and do come back, then I've fulfilled the criteria of having a farewell thread in here, finally.

Believe it or not this took less than a day to type all out, I have an affinity for overly long things(inb4 penis). I don’t doubt to some this feels like I’m playing the victim trying not to blame anyone, and due to the way I say things, I doubt I can clear that doubt doubtlessly. Either way, I’d like my last words on WDA to be something I can remember, and something I can be proud. And so, I leave with this: Adachi is the killer.

I don't get it. The VN was just a project made for fun; the little arguments you had with Alibaba and the others are nothing more than little debates. They weren't serious arguments where people got hurt. Everyone joined the VN project to have fun working together. I can understand being inactive to study, but regarding the other games and anime, aren't you already having fun here? I'm not telling you to ignore those, but I don't understand what's wrong with being here. It's fun, isn't it? And if you have time for fun things, then what's wrong with fun things? s:


No, please, stop, you're not allowed to talk about my graphics skills! (or lack thereof)

Okay. I actually took the time to read all this. Danna, you really shouldn't leave. 95% of this place will miss you, and each time a small community loses a person, especially someone as popular, and well liked as you, it leaves a large void that cannot be filled, no matter how hard one tries.

making a commotion and all to threaten this already-frail society structure is kinda troublesome and I'd rather you just tried to virus-spam as a farewell or something....yeah.

Something you yourself said. In the end, i don't think leaving will be worth it to you. Even if you don't actually consider us as important as friends you know in person, or believe we don't care about you as much as we would care about someone in person, you will miss the memories we all make together, and the memories we would continue to make were you here. You will certainly miss people like Nour, Amy(Supasmash), Alibaba, Digi, Restart, EW. Even on the off chance you don't miss them, would you really want them to miss you, simply because you couldn't stand afew tiny arguments over a project designed for fun? The main reason an argument would bother one person is because it either hurt or bothered the other person. I can say for sure that Alibaba wasn't bothered by it at all, and probably didn't even give it much thought.

To put it short, I'm sorry for wasting everyone's time with the VN project. I was really enthusiastic about it, but then I disappear away and thus the project is dead. It's my fault, and I apologize for wasting the time and/or effort everyone who's involved and is pissed at my failure.
Nobody cares that the project failed. nobody even expected the project to succeed. Yes, it would have been really cool for this project to be completed, but i'm pretty sure everyone was just enjoying the time you were spending working together. the truly saddening thing would be seeing a close friend using it as an opportunity to leave.

Whether it's cuz I'm a shit leader or I don't have passion, in the end I ran away and everyone's efforts(Which to be honest, wasn’t too much except from Centrik.
I don't even think Centrik is the type to care. You made a fine leader, you just didn't have the proper resources to get the job done. I know the feeling.

The other reason I’m leaving is that ever since I’ve started avoiding this place for a while, I’ve realized I’m probably too emotionally dependent on the people here. Sounds nice and caring and all, but really that’s not a good thing. I open up the cbox once every few seconds to see what people say before closing because I realize I was supposed to avoid the place, and I feel sad when I’m not chatting, not gonna deny it.
This really isn't a bad thing. I'm emotionally dependent on the people here, and that doesn't make us weak. Everybody needs someone. Even if it's just friends online you vent to, or if you simply forget your problems by having a conversation with them. That just means you have even less reason to leave, and avoid us.

When i first saw this thread, i thought i was tripping. You can't do this to us. You have been here since i joined, not seeing you in the cbox will be awkward. People voted you as WDA member of the year, pretty sure nearly everyone will miss you. You're one of the nicest people in the chat.

This. Exactly this. You will never find an internet community like this one. Even I will be sad to see you go, especially like this. You understand this is pointless and unreasonable, so that should be enough for you to reconsider.

you ruined my feels for FSN vn goddamnit
if you want to leave WDA for a while that is fine, however, if you don't intend to come back i swear I will chase you down and make you come back.
your worries are almost non-existent, you are assuming that the vn project is more important than you to us.
we don't mind you being emotionally dependent on us, in fact we would love it If you can just stay with us
please, danna, we need you here, you will end this journey with a bad taste in everyone's mouth if you leave

*sigh* this sounds like the fights I have with Hannah (my current girlfriend.) Her issues are complex, but simply put its a combination of insecurity, a feeling of lacking independence, general confusion, and just general unhappiness. I think its about once a month stress will build on her so much that she'll break down and amongst this emotional distress she'll try to push me away and confuse my support with her incompetence. I just got over this with her today (the development from being in this fight to making up takes time,) and things are fine now (@Kimo, i've been wanting to tell you that and let you worry less about me.)

I'm not exactly trying to compare you to say at the least, but when it comes to something you love and you love that thing dearly, don't just let it go and give up on it just because you're feeling shitty at the moment. If you truly love something that you value and its something that gives you some real good meaning, then don't go up and throw it away. Come back when you get your shit together and we'll be right here like always.

I really do understand the notion of yearning for independence. It's a very important thing to have and its essential for your well being at the end of the day. Take some time off from us, do some soul searching, and really focus on yourself for a while. But you actually have to make the effort to even do that focusing, something my girlfriend often forgets. Whether you focus or not, that independence will come to you, well really it's going to be forced on you whenever you take up any sort of obligation that you are going to see through or take up any level of responsibility. Hard work and quite literally doing things by yourself also increase your independence stats (yeah i said it, get to that boosting asap.)

I've seen it time and time again, so I understand what you're going through all too well. Do that soul searching and make that decision to come back or not. If its just that lack of independence that is the case, then work on it and come back. We're here to just hang out and talk about things and be silly.

TL DR: get your shit together, don't worry about us, come back later when you feel like it. I won't say farewell or goodbye, but I'll say see you later. You should know how to get a hold of me.

I'm always up to making VN. There's no waste in music. It's really easy to make one track since now I can afford a Roland (not really).

This topic kept me staying for 1 hour damn.

Man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, man.
I respect your decision to leave for your own best interest and wish you the best of luck in the future.

Grow as a person, in terms of your self-confidence, your interests, your abilities, your social skills and when you feel comfortable to return, return. We'll always welcome you back home with open arms.

If not, it was good to make your acquaintance, and have a good one. You're one of the few people who've left this forum that I am explicitly sad to see go.
