You know, when we picked the first LMB Leader, it was LardLad who was elected. And now as the 10 year anniversary arrives its kind of fitting it coincides with the end of Lardy's 2nd term. Its all very cyclical.

I will freely admit to creating a id named Bounty with two other un-named posters to get Grey goat. We shared the id for a while and had a syntax for how they spoke so any of us could post without it seeming obvious.


Active LMB character is still Beast Boy.

I remember being amazed at 1st meeting Cobie in person, in a parking lot just off of I-90.

We'd barely gotten greetings done with and he was already diving into discussion about the then-current role play! Something to do with Red Bee. Gods, what a geek! I knew then an there we'd get along great!

If I died tomorrow (no plans, don't worry), I'd truly regret not getting to meet so many of you whom I haven't (especially those of you posting tonight).

And how's this for symmetry? I went out to eat the other day with my mother and a friend of hers, and I had chocolate pudding for dessert.

When we were in Boston, LMB: Infinite Crisis had literally been running for about 3 months. Thus, the 12 (or so) of us had dinner together and Abin, Cru, Kent, Far, myself and many others plotted out how the whole thing should eventually end. It was the first ever LMB creative/editorial summit!

One of my standout memories is that I had the honor of being elected deputy leader (with Stu as leader) back in 2003/04. However, I had such trouble keeping up with all the roleplaying that I quickly did what deputy leaders and vice presidents have done since time immemorial: I faded into the background!

It also took me awhile to warm up to the inane threads that eventually became such a big part of the board. Now hardly a day goes by when I don't have something inane to post!

I remember pre-"Legion of Message board posters" when Lardi found out I was gay, likely on his WHO ARE YOU thread, which is the true point where we all began to get to know each other. He seemed a little surprised. I remember being a little concerned I let that info out at first, but it quickly became a non-issue.

Then came all the gay flirting...

It was funny when Space Tart (in her original version) was revealed to be Lash; this is after *heavy* flirting between Spacey and myself for weeks. I took it all in stride and caught on to a noticeable trend: the more I flirted with the female Alt IDs of gay posters, the more Cobalt Kid became a legendary ladies man in LMB lore. I've been milking it ever since wink

Let's check the dictionary...

Oni:

in Japanese folklore, a type of demonic creature often of giant size, great strength, and fearful appearance. They are generally considered to be foreign in origin, perhaps introduced into Japan from China along with Buddhism. Cruel and malicious, they can, nevertheless, be converted to Buddhism. Though oni have been depicted in various ways in Japanese legend and art, sometimes also as women, they are characteristically thought of as pink, red, or blue-grey in colour, with horns, three toes, three fingers, and on occasion with three eyes.


Hmm.

Beyond any doubt, my proudest moments are collaborating with EDE to write MATTER-EATER LAD: THE SERIES (I will NEVER stop finding ways to plug it!!) and Sketch Lad asking me to write a short STARSEARCHERS story for him (and then having him want to do a regular net-comic!!).

EDE and I just seemed so in-synch as co-writers (and this is with very little discussion about what we were going to write) and Dean has a rare talent for making the most out of very little.

Don't wanna embarrass you guys or myself, but I truly am proud of what we created and continue to create.

Wow, I hope I didn't post anything too weird at the time! I actually have no recollection of reacting to your "outing". I wouldn't be too surprised if I 'stammered' a little--I was a little sheltered and never knew anyone who was openly gay at the time. It was definitely a new experience for me, but I never "ew, I don't like MLLASH any more cuz he's gay!"

In a way the LMB has been an education for me about sexual diversity. I was never anything resembling a hater before the LMB, mind you, but there was a certain mystery there and trepidation about the unknown, I suppose.

What I learned very quickly among the LMB is that gay people are just people like everyone else, and there was no reason to be shy or worried about it in any way. Since then, I've worked with some openly gay men in my workplace, and I laugh and cut up with them just like I would anyone else, regardless of what some of my less tolerant co-workers may think. A kid I currently work with teases me about being fat, and I tease him about what a travesty to human nature Celine Dion is! lol It's all good!

And of course....

Last year, it just seemed like the most natural evolution in the world for my troubled Lard Lad character to explore a romantic relationship with the character who'd become his biggest confidante and most supportive friend. I was a little afraid to push it in that direction because I wasn't sure what everyone else would think about it.

Would everyone assume that I, Lardy the poster behind the character, was outing myself by taking this unprecedented (?) step in a roleplay? Sure, other posters had roleplay romances with males calling the shots behind the scenes, but in character these were still heterosexual relationships. What would it mean for an openly heterosexual poster to explore a homosexual relationship with his character and that of a homosexual character?

Ultimately, I went for it. The crazy thing is that Rocky and I never talked about developing this behind the scenes. We just let it happen, let it develop and Rocky ultimately let me make the big move in-character when Lardy declared his love for Rocky. I don't even know if John was expecting it! But on cue, Rocky let Lardy know that he reciprocated, and they consummated it right there with a kiss!

The hilarious thing is that the whole incident went with nary an OOC comment! I thought there'd be all kinds of commentary and stuff, but everyone just took it at face value and moved on! laugh

Now, my only worry is that the perennially tortured and dark Lard Lad may have to scrape and claw for his trademark angst because he'll be hard-pressed NOT to live happily ever after with Rocky! lol Ten years ago, that storyline woulda NEVER have been possible!

Since he and I have never planned or talked behind the scenes about the relationship, I'd be curious to know how John sees and saw the whole thing as it evolved.


Still "Lardy" to my friends!

I have yet to take a look at Starsearchers but I intend to when I get the time.

But I do remember spending an ENTIRE DAY in the Summer of 2004 reading 24 pages of Matter-Eater Lad: the Series and marveling at what a brilliant, hilarious job you guys had done. Plant Lad and so many others suddenly became so freaking kewl! And I even got a character to be named after me for becoming your biggest fan! smile
