Love found on Avlis produces RL engagement!

PostAuthor: Orleron » Wed Dec 03, 2003 6:43 pm

It's a story out of a fantasy novel, right down to the swords and sorcery. Ashlynn and Faidyn met in character on a distant world orbiting a star in someone's imagination. Though their contact was innocent at first, their feelings were fostered in just the right way for them to expand out of that fantasy universe. Now, here on earth, Ashlynn and Faidyn have declared their love to one another and forged a real live engagement! It is my greatest pleasure yet to congratulate these two, and wish them all the best. This is the first recorded event of this kind to happen within the Avlis community, and possibly the NWN community as well. Congratulations to both of you! You've just made this world all the more worth the making.

Holy crap! That is just awesome... congrats to both of you! :D As someone who has just been recently married I wish you as much joy and happiness as I have been fortunate enough to find over the past few years. Sometimes the most unexpected things produce the most amazing results... :lol:

*raises a glass* To the newly engaged!!!

Said my congrats elsewhere, but I'll say 'em again. Congrats!!!!!!

By the way, here's the link to the thread where Ash announced it herself, in case you haven't seen it. I've read it several times, as it makes me smile every time I read it. :)

No, seriously, I asked Ash's permission before doing anything like this. I would not have posted it otherwise.

Oh, and if anyone has a problem with me doing that, please send email to GoFuckYourself@mailinator.com. :P :P

God I love mailinator.

Yes, he asked me earlier today. Supposedly, the check is in the mail. :D

I was delighted to post this to the news boards. Hell, I'm so thrilled about the event, he could put it in skywriting and I'd be happy.

I really, really tried. But this was the best I could do on short notice.

I think this is just amazing.

Here I am, sitting all alone at my computer - just like Tony Hancock in 'The Radio Ham' - 'Friends all over the World - none in this Country, but Friends all over the World'.

Then, we hear of two people who played on Avlis - Roleplayed a meeting - and now they are Engaged.

Stunning.

I nominate Ashlynn and Faidyn as 'Roleplayers of the Century' :lol:

Talk about 'living your dreams'. WOW.
Life is never as bad as you think it is, although that doesn't help at the time.

Then the happy couple needs to have an in-game wedding... invite everyone! Can the DM staff provide special ceremonial clothing to the couple? That would rock!

although we still have no official go from the two we have one big item to talk about:
where?

We are about 150+ players.
We could do:
A) see if we can get a special server running for just the wedding
b) have an invitation only but then stream the log to irc.

congrats to Ashlynn. I know that if it weren't for the wonderful world of internet and online gaming Themi and would have never met, so.. I wholeheartedly congratulate them both.
