An old lighthouse hoping to reconnect . . . (AGAIN)
« on: September 04, 2016, 02:02:28 PM »
Uh, hi.

Life is a thing, and so I got a bit distant, even when I didn't want to. I remember I posted something like this a few years back, but then I got distracted again. I'm probably more put-together now than I have been in ages---or at least I'm trying to be. I've always had trouble forging lasting connections, but my fond memories of Freebird brought me back again.

My username as displayed is Amaranth, but before anyone new starts thinking I'm the Aveyond creator, that's not me. I just liked the meaning behind amaranth when I was trying to come up with a forum name back in the day. (During my last visit I changed it to a more recently-used name, but folks got confused, IIRC, so I changed it back.)

TL;DR: My name is Charlotte, so feel free to call me that if you want. Or call me Amaranth if you're used to it. Whatever works.

I also finally picked up To the Moon and A Bird Story during Steam's summer sale and thoroughly enjoyed both. The funny part is that back in my college days---probably sometime before or after my last visit (I can't remember)---I found out I'm an Aspie. So To the Moon has even more meaning for me than it would've otherwise.  Everyone who worked on it and tested it has my deepest gratitude.

I'm done with school for now, but I'm still trying to understand myself about six years later. I finally have a paying job, and I hope it'll be a stepping stone I can use to get where I want to be. I'm working on writing.

P.S: If anyone's over on Lemmasoft, I have an account there too because I want to create things, and learn from those who already know what they're doing. (Different username, though---PM me if you want to know.)

Welcome back ^^
Amaranth is also a song from nightwish I really like :3
The forum is a bit quiet at the moment, but I'm sure FP release will bring a bit of frish wind.
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...
Every drop leaves ripples.

Hey welcome back. I'm a new member that doesn't know a lot of the older people here but it's good to see someone return :)

Glad to hear you enjoyed To the Moon.

Yes the forums are a bit dead right now, aren't they? But like Thunderbird said, hopefully Finding Paradise will change that :)

Welcome back I suppose! Like Dragon Mage, I'm also a fairly new member. But it feels nice for me to meet one of the older members of this forum. And I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the games.  :)

I'm still alive. Object Oriented Programming subject has yet to kill me. Same cannot be said for Data and Discrete Structures....

Hello! I am a person you won't really expect to see at all.

...Yes.
You can contact me faster via Discord or Steam. Ask for my account name if you care.

Welcome back Amaranth, I wasn't active back then when you used to be active, but I have seen some of your posts in the past few years when I was reading old topics :)

Oh my god! It's really you!  :o Welcome back, Amaranth. :)

I remember seeing a lot of your posts when I first registered in the forums in 2012 (you were already long gone by that time). Like Eli, I used to search the forums for older posts to get to know the Elders better, but then I noticed that the one with the very promising personal text "I'm back and better than ever!" wasn't going to come back after all. But now it seems the spell has been finally broken. And I'm excited to see what you're capable of. Also souvenirs, lots o' them. :P

Now the question is, are you really "better than ever"?  :3

Bumping my old "I'm alive!" thread again because I kind of disappeared . . . again . . .

It's been almost two years since I was last here. Depression has a funny way of ruining everything I plan, apparently. Still dealing with the same stuff. I guess I'm looking for friends here because I don't really have any friends. I'm not sure how to go about it, though. I feel pretty pathetic, but I'm at the end of my rope.

Hopefully I can manage to stay this time. It would help if I had people to really talk to. Does Freebird have a Discord?

Welcome back! I registered in 2014 and it looks like you've been active during my inactive period, and vice versa. I hope the two of us appearing at the same time is not a sign of some kind of apocalypse!

We have an unofficial Discord now. Basically everyone except Rieves is on it. Here is the link, expires in 24 hours: https://discord.gg/B9spVk

Thank you for the link! I go by a different name on Discord (it's from another community I'm sort of in), but people are welcome to call me by my real name, Charlotte, if that's less confusing.

Hello Charlotte, I don't know what it is about this place that attracts people with serious issues; a small forum on the internet about a small series of games just doesn't strike me as a good place to get therapy, or any therapy for that matter.
Nonetheless, you do seem acquainted with the place and know a few people, so I doubt you'll have trouble integrating yourself.
...Right then, don't get peoples hopes up and disappear all of a sudden, that'd truly be a bother.
