Back for a big dose of nostalgia.
« on: August 09, 2015, 11:52:29 PM »
Hey, everyone. I'm Allaire--or at least that's what you would have known me as the last time I was on Ww. My name is Alethea, but most everyone called me Ally when I was last active--so calling me anything in that vein works.

I joined Ww v1 when I was about 12, just prior to the first Game. I later became a mod (admittedly not a very popular one...I was kind of a jerk in my early teen years and took the position way more seriously than it needed to be) sometime in early 2008, and was one of the staff members who helped Blizz build v4. To be honest (and this is embarrassing), I can't remember why I stepped down from my mod position, but it was probably because I was too pretentious for my own good, haha.

And now? I'm an (almost) 20-year-old Canadian queer lady who splits her time between Toronto and Wisconsin, the latter being where I'm currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a double major in Musical Theatre and Arts Administration. I'm passionate about art as activism and the praxis of change in public policy through art. Okay, based on my last sentence, maybe I'm just as pretentious as I was six years ago, but I'd like to think that I've mellowed out a little bit.

I'm back on Ww because every time I see a cat post on the internet, I remember how many fond memories I cultivated here, even though I'm a dog person. I'm back on Ww because (although I really can't remember how I acted), I feel like I left on a bad note, and all my old friends deserve better than that. I'm back on Ww because I'm awful at keeping in touch with people and I haven't spoken to many of you in the better part of a decade. I'm back because I'm a nostalgic fool. But it's good to be back.

Hi!! I've heard nothing but amazing things about you, but I'm not sure we've met yet. ;-; I'm glad to see you joined!! =D

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.

This gif is everything. Also, @~.:ChEeTaHhEaRt:.~~ (oh god your username takes me STRAIGHT back to 2006), wasn't it you (and Sorrel? because you're sisters, do I have that right?) who I got temporarily banned one time because I took something you said too seriously (story of my life) and reported it to Blizz? I had no chill.

Hello to my old friends and hello to my new friends! You are all kinder than I deserve. @Scary let's 100% be trash together.
