A Tale about a Knight…

Try as I might this evening, I just couldn’t post. Have you ever wanted to write…but there was a story in your mind that you just couldn’t get out of it…and you –had- to write that before you could move on to anything else?

Yeah…that’s what happened.

So instead of fighting it, I decided to do what my mind wanted and write what I wanted to write.

There is an interesting story about the night I came back to Aelyria after being gone for over a year. On IM, I ran into someone from Aelyria (might have been Alexis or Faust…can’t remember who exactly….) and they had mentioned a thread that had been put up for my birthday, even though I hadn’t been seen in over six months by that time. Curiosity got the best of me and I logged in. Now, at that point, I literally hadn’t logged into Aelyria…at all…since the day I left….but I wanted to see who had been kind enough to think of me on my birthday…(Thank you Jacob!)

Once again, curiosity nudged me in the direction of chat. I wanted to see who was around and chat for a bit. There were a few people I knew…and this funny guy named Vaishen. He had a great attitude and genuinely seemed interested in who I was and why I had been gone from the game so long. At this point, I hadn’t even considered coming back to the game. I was just in chat to chat and having a good time. Vaishen told me all about his pc in Imperia and suggested that maybe if I was coming back, I meet up with him in said city with a pc of mine and rp with him. That started the wheels turning in my mind…and I began thinking about a new pc concept that turned into my beautiful Aislynn. Well, once I started thinking about her, I started considering my old pcs that I missed….and the rest is history.

Well, almost the rest….

Everyone that frequents chat knows about my ever-present beanbag chair. I drag it around with me in chat and like to flop on it a lot. Consider it my security blanket. After a few days, this crazy Vaishen guy started sitting on my beanbag chair…and he wouldn’t get off it. And that made me talk to him more…and more.

A few nights after I had come back, I had a bad night. I don’t remember why but something had happened with either a friend or family member and I was a bit out of sorts. He sat down on that damn beanbag chair and wouldn’t get up until I told him what was wrong.

He hasn’t left since….

Vaishen (or as I know now….Jeremy….not to be confused with the other Jeremy that haunts chat) has been an amazingly large part of my Aelyrian life since my return. The rp that we share between Vaishen and Aislynn is incredible….and now as AGM Ridire, he has helped me create the beautiful Candace’s Respite and AGMs for me in Prime. But more then that, he’s been my rock and best friend. He’s there on the good days….and there on the bad days…..sitting on my bean bag chair and always ready with a tight hug and support when I need it. He even came and meet me at the airport during a layover in his city while I was on a business trip to make sure I made my transfer to a different plane because I was taking flying meds. It’s always nice to meet someone from Aelyria…and just like in the chat room, he was waiting for me with a huge hug and words of encouragement.

The beanbag, however, was nowhere to be found. I was a bit disappointed about that.

Thank you Jeremy for everything you do for me. You’ve been an amazing part of my life. A creative partner within Aelyria….A friend…and so much more. People like you are rare…and I’m thankful every day that you refused to get off my damn beanbag chair…because that was your way of telling me that you refused to stay out of my life….no matter what I did to try and dissuade you.

And tomorrow….you will be back, sitting on my beanbag chair….telling me how silly I am to think so much of something you feel is so minor….but I’m here to tell you that kindness is –never- a small thing.

Thank you for being you.

    While reading this I thought you're really lucky. I wish I had someone like that, a single most important person. Maybe I do ... maybe I don't. ^^°

    Anyway, I like Aislynn and our nice little thread. Let's continue getting to know each other!

    Awww.... I still remember those early days. Me crashing on your beanbag chair and trying to steal your uber time bendy sword. It's kinda funny, because when I talked you into starting a new PC in Imperia I had no idea what I was getting myself in to.

    Of course, I wouldn't trade that moment for anything in the entire world.

    Writing with Aislynn opened up an unprecedented, and quite fun to play, side of Vaishen's character... and getting to know you opened up an unprecedented part of Aelyria for me. I never pictured myself as being a mod when I started, and even downright refused to do it -- yet I did, and you made it completely worthwhile, and you taught me how to do it well.

    You've also supported and been there for me in so many ways outside of Aelyria. There are few people in my life I consider indispensable to my happiness, and there has never been anyone who got to that level as quickly as you, but now I can't imagine how I would get through a day without you.

    If I'm a knight, the you're my princess... and every day I'm thankful to have you in my life. So, thank you for being you, and thank you for scooting over to make room for me in that chair so many months ago... because that small, simple act has had as large and profound an impact upon my life as any moment could ever since.
