If you don't want my peaches, ...
I remember when Eryk, Lou, Abin and many others including myself were averaging over 100 posts a day. It was the summer of 2004.

During that time, I lived at my parent's house and had graduated college but had not gotten my current job yet. Instead, I was in Grad School and working parttime and therefore had tons of free time and access to computers during that free time.

I posted throughout the Dark Stu Saga from the Trinity College library when I should have been working on papers.

I remember hot summer nights of 2004 posting in my boxers on my laptop in my room at my parent's house *before* I would go out for the night (sometimes not until 11:00 or 12:00 PM--oh, the joys of no job and living like a vampire). Sometimes I'd come home so late it was essentially morning the next day and keep posting before I got any sleep. One such time, Hrun the Barbarian happened to have captured Lash Lad and forced him to be his slave, and as Security Chief I had to go rescue him. I did, and Hrun therefore captured EDE. Lash, naturally became jealous of this. Hysterically quick, this exchange took place within 25 minutes and then I was off to bed. And when I woke up, I couldn't wait to see what had happened since.

I remember the first Legion chat on the Yahoo group. Spear guns, hands being bitten off (Furball got better) and general chaos that can happen when more than 10 people are posting into a chat at one time.


Active LMB character is still Beast Boy.

One of my all-time favorite exchanges was between Pov, Tamper Lad, and myself in this thread.

Good times.

I wish Tamper and Pov would post more often these days.

I'll go with my first memory...

I had been posting my manips on a yahoo group called Legionpics.
One day I got a messge from "Therod" to join him and some others on the DC L* board, as I seemed to be a dedicated Legion fan.
Well I went, and quickly met the whole crew and joined in on the fun. Never before was I so quickly accepted into an on-line community. Those were crazy times, I recall several all night post-a-thons with cobie and lardi with other folks dropping in and out as the night progressed.

Okay, here’s a great Cobie/Deddy story:

When the LMB was still incredibly young and in its fourth month, the end of my freshman year was coming to an end and I had to go back to my parents for the summer and back then we didn’t have a computer. So I took a brief leave of absence from the LMB; when I returned, a few months later it was more on and off than I had initially been, and I had become much less prominent—eventually, I drifted away a second time around the end of the LMB’s first year and then was gone for a whole other year (my first great absence from the LMB). In the meantime, Dedman had come in about 6-7 months after the LMB formed and quickly became a mainstay LMBer of the early years. We interacted a bit, but kind of missed each other’s first really prominent eras. Then I returned in 2002 (meeting Pov, Stu and Ultra Matt for the first time) and quickly became a very prominent poster again (even becoming LMB Leader). Deddy had stayed a prominent poster since, taking the awesome moniker “Cannon-Fodder Kid”. It was at this time the LMB wound up on the legendary Phineas Board at the DCMB’s (see the history thread for pages of explanation that are quite hilarious).

So, when I really first got to know Deddy it was an exchange one late night on the Phineas Board where we were talking about various illegal substances that can “expand your mind”. Pov and Stu were also there. We got to talking about mushrooms, and Deddy offered to send me some. I, of course, accepted. We even briefly considered how it could be done. I suddenly got a quick message from Pov, who had become my buddy by then too: “um, do you really think planning sending drugs through the mail via the internet is a smart thing to do when you’re using a college campus computer?” Good ol’ responsible Pov! Because I was indeed thinking such a thing!

I always remember that exchange with Dedman sometime in the Spring of 2002 in the heyday of the Phineas Board. At the same time, Leap Year Lass joined the LMB; Lardy ran my successful campaign to be LMB Leader; Stu moved cross country and met several LMBers in person and Pov and I were shocked to learn we actually lived…5 minutes away from one another!

I remember in one of the Answering Questions With Questions Threads, at one point we were casting ourselves as characters from "Are You Being Served?" and I posted, "'Ere, kin oi be Miss Brahms?"

Another time, I spent a whole night compulsively posting about pudding because I had read a funny story in a music magazine about British pop star Lilly Allen getting into an argument with her mother over pudding.

One time I was trying to win the first Ultra Boy appearance on Ebay and my main competitor for it? Faraway Lad. He saw it was me and let me win the auction. Yeah, he's that great of a guy.

I've also been the recipient of free comics from Vee, Lightning Lad and others to fill in my collection over the years. I now own Vee's childhood copy of the Revolt of the Super-Pets. Helping each other out has become a great tradition; I couldn't wait to do the same so when I found out Invisible Brainiac desperately needed some Legionnaires issues that he couldn't find in the Phillipines but I knew my comic book shop had every week, I immediately got them for him and shipped them out. Because that's just a small part of what the LMB and Legion World do for one another.

I remember the first time I saw a post from some guy named Cobalt Kid, and Cru/Spellbinder called him "Cobie Cakes" and I thought, he must be a real nice guy. (And he is.)

Another memory: after we crashed at Rob's boards, over at the LMBP group, Gary raised the idea of Legion World and I responded that it probably wasn't feasible, since it would entail an awful lot of work. It's a good thing he didn't listen to me!

I remember my first time posting; I think I said something along the lines of “I don’t see any role for Dawnstar, she’s a bit of a waste of space alongside some of the others, shes not particulary interesting or well written and other such inane things.

This was the first time i met Greybird............. eek


Well I think Cobie eventually found one of them on the floor under the screens in the mission monitor room and Lardy’s still looking for the other one.
lol

Yea, there were actually several of us that took great glee in that moment. I forget if Furball was still a secret at that point.

Aw, thanks FC. You were among the first Legion Worlders I met here (with Vee, Semi, Abin and Icey) and you guys were all so welcoming and fun. It's no wonder I couldn't stop coming back for more -- and never had a real absence again. Soon after I joined and had already gotten Thora pregnant which caused her to kidnap Space Ranger and threaten to invade LW (again) unless I married her; most of us prepared to invade Taltar but you sensibly said you'd plan for the wedding just in case. laugh

I have those cute little ramekins in the cupboard that I haven't used in ages. This totally makes me want to make homemade puddings and pipe the big "L" onto them in whipped cream and then post a picture on Webshots. Who knows? Maybe I will this weekend.

In the time I've been here, Rockhopper Lad has had a relationship with a man from a parallel universe where his own double is a galactic tyrant; developed super-breath; found and lost a "sister" from a parallel universe; acted as a mentor to Time Teller Lad and "Clive"; served as deputy leader; founded the Legion of Former Deputies; created several ice sculptures of Cobalt Kid; and dated Lard Lad!

And that's just the stuff that happens in character! wink

One of my best Legion World memories is the road trip with Pov. Wishing we had the time to stay an extra day in Memphis. Laughing with Beagz about the "two turds off".

I remember when I met Kent (to date the only LWer I've met). It was shortly after christmas a few years back.
We met up in a bar and right away I felt like I had known him for years (I guess in a way I did).
We spent the night talking and drinking, doing quite a bit of bar-hopping along the way.
It was a very fun night!

I hope to meet more of you someday!

Kent is one of those people you can talk to for hours and hours about tons and tons of things. I remember realizing in the middle of a conversation that Kent clearly put into words how he felt about the threeboot Legion, the Geoff Johns return of the preboot Legion and what he'd like to see going forward for the Legion as a franchise and thinking from now I'm just going to let Kent speak first in Legion-related arguments and then come in after words and agree with him laugh

That moment literally happened at Foxwoods Casino with Abin about 2-3 years back.
