He was dang sure a kid and a very smart one. Mikester had not only a smart head on his shoulders but he also had a great sense of humor. Oh boy I never forget he complained to me when he was angry about a topic. Hahahha! I felt like a mother and an older sister at the same time!! I had to calm him down like a sister does and comfort him like a mom does. And he kept on returning to TDL and tried it again. Till this day Mikester is one of my most beloved jewels on here. But don't tell him or he will flip hahahahahhaha!
Aw, thanks.

And of course I flipped.

TN and Obi and I were a great trio, looking at us now we seem like three completely opposite personalities so I don't know how in the world that worked. But it did, probably a big help in my learning how to get along with people who are way different form me.

Another one of my very first friends was Elashia/FenderStratocaster/Jood and all the other usernames she had. I just got along really well with her. Also Audrey (Daydreambeliever/Snowflower) and Audrey (Lucy but Taller) and Kitty and Rach. And all of the girls.

Aww, Vanessa, that was so sweet. No wonder you are so loved -- you are so loving! We are blessed to have grown-ups like you here, just as we're blessed to have such great young people. And old folks like myself!

Although I was grown-up, married and a step-mom when I joined here, my TDL family has been with me through so many changes, plus my goofy medical problems, my mum's battle with Alzheimer's and her passing, my struggles with my marriage and my faith walk. I feel so many of the wonderful folks here have been my prayer partners and fans. Thanks y'all. You know I love you!

Narniafans, TDL.. has a lot to do with my growing up. Even though it was absent from my life while I was growing up
We're glad you're back and also that you love Narnia still. All of us are here because we all love Narnia and consider ourselves Narnians. I think that's why we all love each other and feel a connection, even though we don't really know each other in real life. I'm just so happy you're back amongst us crazy Narnians!

It was like they were part of my family already. All internet limits felt away. Thanks to BK I have told people who are going to SoCal to go to Balboa (was that the name Mike?) beach. It is way more cool than LA area. And Benisse she did SO MANY GREAT things for me and my brother!!!!
You're right Vanessa! It's Balboa Beach! One of my favorite beaches. I have so many great memories of those few days we spent together. I especially cherish our breaking of bread at Linda's house and the time we spent with her wonderful family! And yes, it felt as if we had always known each other. Plus your brother Marvin is one of the most gentle, honest, and humble person I have ever met. When I go to Europe, I'll make sure I'll come to Netherlands to see you guys!

Protag had an influence on my time on TDL too. He did care and did often ask me if I was okay etc. So yes there is a very good side about protag only a few members know.
I think he would feel weird if I say that I love him so I'll say that I really, really, like that dude. He may not think so, but I do. I never disliked him or anything and he usually made me laugh with his posts. He was always funny, witty, and random, which are qualities that I can relate to really well. Plus, I miss the rabbit-thingy avatar.

I gotta agree with BK about Protag. I just wish I knew him better...

This is gonna feel strange because it has been seven years since I was an active member at TDL but I started when I was 16 and here is where I got real encouragement to write and felt like I was actually talented.
Here I felt accepted when I didn't at home and I felt very cared about.
Most of the people who were so good to me back then have either left or changed their name but the since of acceptance and encouragement is still a huge aspect of this place. It's important.
And now I am back to write again (once I have posted enough LOL)

Wow, that's a long time, Kate! I don't know you, but I'm so glad you came back! And I do hope you stay. This is indeed such a wonderful community.

I never really looked at this thread very hard, but I think I always meant to post in it, so here I am, posting in it.


So firstly, I joined here when I was 12 and now I'm 17. Jeeze, that's 5 years, haha. I remember I had to convince my mom that this was a good site that she should let me join and I remember how I insisted on having this username. Looking back at my posts I'm kind of appalled at how I acted at times and amazed at how patient everyone on here was towards me. I was such a stubborn little thing who got angry all the time at everything and everyone. I think being on here helped me grow up and learn to think about what I say and be more sensitive to people. I also always felt like this place and everyone in it was like my family- I could come on here and be a goofball or vent or engage in a deep discussion and make a fool of myself in front of grown-ups () and everyone would be okay with it. I've always had more friends on here than I've ever had anywhere else, and boy do I miss some of them. (Especially my wars with the Traveling Trio and Dusty and conversations with Narniagirl12 and LBT and Kitty. And Thegirls in general.)
One thing I do remember clearly though was Kitty telling me to post my book (later bookS) on here. I am very glad that I gave into her pestering and did, because you guys have been incredibly helpful to me in my writing. You helped me to understand the perks of constructive criticism and actually WANT it (especially in a world where all my English teachers think that everything I write is brilliant and perfect the first time 'round) as well as encourage me to keep writing.

I think all that is why I can't leave. I've thought about just not coming back on here one day, but I can't bring myself to do it. There are too many memories, too many friends, too many good times to still be had.
