Well, not so much, really.
I’ve been absent. Most people probably think I got hit by a bus or something, or that the blog is well and truly dead and I’ll never post to it again.
The latter is probably closer to the truth, but it’s hard to just close this thing down. Too much time has gone into it. Too much work. Too much money. Maybe I’m just being stubborn and denying the inevitable. Maybe not.
I started this blog many years ago, when I was so passionate about the World of Warcraft, when I was so passionate about Arms Warriors, that I felt that I had something to say, and that Arms needed a voice to speak on its behalf.
I’m still passionate about World of Warcraft, though not as much as I once was. To be fair, much of my passion in the game was because my life at the time was a wreck, and I needed an escape more than I thought I did. Denied that truth for a long time, too. I’m still passionate about Arms Warriors, and Lelissa remains my flagship sword-wielding warrior queen in Azeroth… and in Arborea, Skyrim, Amalur… anywhere a powerful fighter with a two-handed sword can be found.
The problem is that I feel that I’ve run out of things to say. I’ve tried to rekindle that theorycrafting spark; I’ve tried to force myself to write on the upcoming 5.2 changes and rage management and the loss (finally!) of Heroic Strike… and I just don’t have it in me.
I don’t know what the future will hold for this blog. I’m going to try my hand at returning to a little fanfic, but posts will likely be sporadic (as I’m sure anyone remaining has noticed). I have stories to write and stories to finish – believe me, Lelissa has been screaming at me from the corner of my mind that she calls home – and I’m going to tell those stories. Just bear with me.
If you’re still following me after all this silence, then thank you. Thank you for sticking around, just in case there was something to be said.
I leave you with this – wonderful, wonderful art provided by my most excellent friend, Lorelai:
Lelissa and Malyss, fighting the good fight, back to back as they should have from the very beginning before Arthas took that away from them.
