It's been a loooong time

How have you been?

I was inspired to come and say hello by the most bizarre thing - I was playing a game where a sound clip was played, and you had to guess the language it was in. When I heard a Portuguese accent I felt a pang of sorrow thinking about Nat, Bene, Khimmi, Organi - I don't know if the Mafioso still represents, but that's what landed me here.

I've silently visited before. I was a complex mixture of devastated and horrified to hear about Bronto passing. I had such respect for him, in a relationship that was blunt and honest and maybe could have been seen as tense at times but never actually felt it.

And of course I know some faces from way back when... (when was when? 2010? Ish?) are still hanging around. I greet you all and send you warm regards and happy thoughts. WST is a strange creature you know, because even now, years on, thoughts of my guildies here regularly flit into my mind, things we did, conversations, ups and downs - mostly ups to be fair.

Hope you're all doing well, or at least managing to dance in the rain.

Pixey...

long time no see. I hope you're well. We still have the mafia around. I heard you played on another realm - might be wrong. I've tried to follow your sister and her band, but that didn't work out well.

Cheers,

Lyc

I'm alright enough. My plans changed a lot when I was diagnosed with arthritis, which was quite rapid in its onslaught, but I still try to maintain my er... sunny disposition?

I did play as Alliance for a while, though haven't been around WoW for quite some time now. Are you all enjoying yourselves and your conquests over the orcs, demons and ogres? Many of my WST thoughts surfaced when Blizzard announced Legion, as the general concept reminded me of TBC, still what I recall as my best days in WoW. Kael'Thas, oh Kael'Thas.

Beth/Trix and her band are actually doing pretty well now! They finished a tour in the UK this year and Beth has been offered a writing/recording gig in Germany. Her manager apparently represented Wet Wet Wet. This excites my mother and makes me rest my head gently on hard, cold surfaces. I like to think I'm still too young to be crushing over Marty Pellow.

Edit: Given it was mentioned I should do my sisterly duty and plug - they're called Standing Like Statues. Pop/punk genre. They have YouTube videos!

Pixey!! /swoon

I got all warm and fuzzy when I read your post: it feels like ages and God knows I've been (and I'm going) through my share of hardship but it just feels good to know you're still out there and missing us WoW-addicts!

Pixey ... oh my ... the wheel has turned a few times since you left us. I am sorry to hear of your illness - that is indeed a crippling disease.

That said, it warms my heart to see that you are still thinking of the guild - it is indeed quite special and with some very special and memorable characters, most of which are luckily still with us.

I wish you the best and I am thrilled that you are not a stranger.

<3

Hi There Pixey,

I am currently on a year(ish) break from wow, but cannot keep away from the forums. It's good to hear from you, and yep there are some awesome memories and friends made in WST.
I remember Nina making a video for one of your sister's records a good while ago, and the band name was different, and she used my pally in the Vid. I think that's when we all went voting for her band on that radio station link. the song i think was Monster/demon or summit like that.

Nice to hear from you and glad your reasonably okay.

Love n Hugs
Allan

Ooh Vis, I think it was... Talkshift? I think they actually won that promo thing back then!

Mel! I hope life is treating you well. And that one of this lot has finally sent you a World's Greatest Boss mug! Your girls must be practically grown ups by now.

Khmii - ol√°! I'm sorry to hear you've had some hard times. I will attempt to assault you with positive energy. Assuming that fails, perhaps some wisdom will help. When life is being inappropriate, try to keep taking notes! And be well :)

Agrue, just <3. I dislike planes.

Tom/Wyn wishes me to convey his greetings also! He too thinks about you all, jointly we send our love.

They are 12 and 16 now. Oh my!

And these insensitive men give me no mugs or anything. Need some more girl power... :lol:

Hi Pixey,

Nice to hear from you; I can't believe it's been that long!

Sorry to hear about your arthritis, that can't have been easy to deal with.

I suppose my biggest change since you left is that I've now got a three-year-old daughter! Other than that, not much else changes! I've been on a WoW hiatus due to tennis elbow but am slowly working my way back into it.

Good to hear from you <3

Huge delay, but Xay! That's huge and a little scary yet great news. I hope she's blessed with brains and ambition and a big heart. I can definitely picture you being a fantastic mummy :D congrats
