When I was typing the title of this post it autofilled with an old title: A re- introduction. This is isn’t an introduction, it’s a good bye.
TAP started for me as something my teacher wanted my writing class to do. 23 or so of us signed up, and now I’m the last one online. I don’t regret sticking around, TAP has changed me. TAP helped me realize that friends can be found in unforgettable places. Each and every person on TAP has inspired me to keep writing. I am now on other writing sites, but I will remember TAP as my first. On TAP we are a family. We supported each other, played games, helped each other out. I remember when I was a newbie, how welcoming everyone was. No one left me to figure it out myself, everyone helped. When I became more experienced, I tried to be the one that offered help. I hope that I did help someone, somehow. I made so many good friends on this site, so many amazing people. I would just like to say thank you all. Everyone. For being my family.
Some of you are extra special to me, especially those I first met:
Mary- Dee: Dee, OMG, I remember those conversations we had here. We joined within a few days of each other. I had so much fun on the debates doing those roleplays, and just making quirky stories, remember my awkward dragon turtles? :) We never stayed on topic and that TAP Convention never got planned. You never come on anymore and I missed you. Thank you for being my first true TAP friend. And LIRL :)- Zoembie :)
MizzT: No matter how many times you change your name, you will always be MizzT to me. I remember laughing at the comments you made, reading your stories in awe of your talent. You are an incredible author, and I thank you for every comment you made. You inspired me.
Silent Seas: SS you were one of the first people I met on TAP, you helped my on my way, you made me feel welcome on TAP. You helped me become, I feel, a better author, so thank you, thank you, thank you. You are also the first TAPper I met on FB, so I hope that we never forget this incredible site.
Blushie: You were the first person to talk to me on TAP, you introduced me to this incredible site. Thank you. I will always remember that it was you that made me feel welcome here.
There are more of you, and all of you, so thank you. This is my formal goodbye, I don’t know if I’ll post any more.
