Hello, and Thank You

SylvanRah's picture
E: Sorry everyone. I just feel really sad for no reason. I won't bother anyone again until this is over. I'm not normally like this. Please don't think I'm ignoring you, I'm just not able to manage words, or actions etc...

~~~

I've finally mustered the courage to say hello. So, hello! I'm still a bit overwhelmed by the wonderful community but I really want to say thank you. Even just through Forest interactions you've made me feel incredibly welcome, so thank you all very much. Laughing out loud

I'm sure I'm really bad at handling the role playing that everyone except me seems to be doing (and right now I don't have the energy due to reasons), so let me apologise if any of my in Forest actions have been confusing or offensive, or if I've ignored you - I try to focus on everything that's happening but I know I've failed at times.

I also wanted to say thank you before I go into hospital for a bone marrow transplant to fight my aplastic anemia (the cause of my lack of energy). It's hella dangerous and I'm quite terrified, but if and when I get through it, I want to try to be more active on the community so I can return your kindness. Maybe I'll even try to come up with a character... Eye

As a way of starting now, have a thing I did. (Forgive me, I've never drawn deer, fire, grass, etc. before...)

I remember meeting Fly a few times I think, it was fun and an honour.
Thank you for the wishes... I'll be fighting as hard as I can, but I'll still need a decent amount of luck.
Very nice meeting you!

Oqu, Thanks, glad you like it! Apparently I have a thing for the magical... (I did a similar thing before)
Vala, I'm sure she'd get on with me just fine IRL, I embrace moments of laziness.

Hello, welcome, and i believe

Hello, welcome, and i believe Oasis has met your deer already :3, and i used to know someone with aplastic anemia, i never got to find out if she was okay after her transplant because i had to move, but she always said look on the bright side Laughing out loud, best of luck to you, and hope to see you around more in the forest :3
SylvanRah's picture

Flyleaf, glad to see you

Flyleaf, glad to see you again, it was great! Laughing out loud I need to overcome my fear of big groups more... Thank you, I'm doing very well actually, although it doesn't feel like it. I still feel awful, but I can put up with that knowing that my body's getting better. Smiling
SilverDoe, it was nice to meet Oasis, and likewise you! I'm sorry to hear about the person you know, it's a nightmare. Sad I hope they're okay, and they're right to look on the bright side. If you look hard enough, there always is one. Smiling Hoping to see you in the forest again, thank you! Laughing out loud

For not drawing these things before, you're rather talented c: it's really beautiful and well done.
Ah... I hope everything goes well. You seem like a genuinely nice person.

Hello everyone! Gawd, I'm

Hello everyone! Gawd, I'm sorry I've been ignoring this thread for so long, I just haven't had anything nice or happy to say. Turns out bone marrow transplants suck. If anyone offers you one and you don't need it, just politely turn them down.

cloudandis, wow, thank you very much. Heh, I've got a long way to go before my art's as good as yours. (Colour continues to mystify me - how do you do it!)
I don't know if I'm a nice person, but I'm trying to be better. It means a lot to hear you say it all the same. Smiling

Laryal, Hello, and thank you! It's possible that I've not met Cheveyo, mainly because I'm really shy in the forest (and everywhere else -_-) but please don't be afraid to approach me. I'm not in character -at all- (am I actually the only one...?) so Cheveyo's safe to approach me, if he wants to. If that makes sense. I don't really know what I'm talking about! '~' xD

Dampir, you're very welcome, any time. I enjoyed it Smiling I kinda had a teeny peek at your tumblr while we sat. Watership Down is absolutely excellent, if you haven't read the book I recommend doing that as well. It might be cliché but my favourite was always Fiver. Laughing out loud

Flyleaf, my friend! It was nice to see you! I'm struggling on... Having problems with one of the trial drugs, and infections, but I'm still alive so I can't really complain. How are you? I seem to remember you were getting infections, how is that? And how are other things?
Sorry for hesitating to come to you... I'm always afraid to approach other deer - I'm afraid they might be deeply IC or that they don't want to be bothered... which is totally silly but I can't help it! ;_; See you again ^^

I am feeling better now and infections have gone away , i hope lol .

Okay, today's a Bad Day and

Okay, today's a Bad Day and latent chemo side effects are stopping me from writing nice things, so here's a rant. I'm really sorry. I'll probably delete this if and when I'm better, and write a proper reply. In fact, ignore this if you want to, I'm probably not thinking rationally.

Flyleaf, ShrinkingRose, Alanthea, I'm going to be completely honest. I really really wish I wasn't sick, because I can see you three and Jennie etc. interacting in the forums and on DA and making gorgeous art and biographies, and I want to be part of that so badly, but right now I literally don't have the energy to keep up with it, and it breaks my heart because I don't want you to think I'm not interested, because I am very much. And at the same time I don't want you to think I'm sick and treat me differently, and I don't know what to do wah. Maybe I'm thinking too far into it ;_;


No, I'm not happy with that reply at all. I'm sorry, I'll reply properly later, not feeling well enough to reply properly now. Thank you so much for the wonderful words, and for putting up with me. Flyleaf, the lovely mini deer is called Hiirnenn. I'll see you all in the forest.

Hey, SylvanRah!
It was such a fun to play with you today, thank you for the company Smiling And by the way, your drawing absolutely fascinates me.
But that's so sad to hear of your health problems, hope you'll get better soon!

P.S. Sorry, I missed your leaving and didn't say goodbye, but I'm sure we'll meet again in a short time)
P.P.S. Oh, and how on earth did you do that sit-sliding trick today?! You somehow even managed to turn while doing it, that must be some kind of forest magic!)

Gah I'm an idiot. Let's try

Gah I'm an idiot. Let's try this again.

Flyleaf, aw, It was great to see you! Don't worry if you can't stay for long. Thank you so much for putting up with me and my antics!
I've loved playing with you, Hiirnenn, ShrinkingRose, Alanthea, Jennie, Pink, Urschanabi, etc. so much for the past few evenings <3
I'm happy to hear the infections have stopped plaguing you, you just keep it that way.
Yes, the mini deer is Hiirnenn, but I don't need to tell you that because she has a profile page now, hurrah!

Hiya, ShrinkingRose! (Would you prefer Rose or similar? I'd let you call me Sylvan, but that's taken, and common besides. I need to think about a proper name... ANYWAY.)
Thank YOU. Cast whatever you want on me, I look equally awkward in anything. Laughing out loud Just be aware that I'll be sad if you cast antlers on me just as I leave, because then I'd lose the candles I'm so attached to. Laughing out loud Wow, I'd love it if you mentioned me in Mandel's updates! Oh I'm excited! See you again Smiling

Alanthea, oh, thank you! Heh, I totally forgot that picture was up there. I should probably make a dedicated blogthing but I'm too nervous '~' We did outfox 'em didn't we, muhahaha! Lovely seeing you in the forest, I just really hope you didn't leave on account of me... I know you probably didn't but I always think the worst and I can't help it! Hopefully see you again Smiling

Hi Urschanabi! Great to see you again! Ah, that was so much fun. I loved the peaceful walking side by side... (even if I'm bad at driving my deer in a straight line) Fascinates you, you say? Excellent. Laughing out loud Hoping to see you again. ^^
I'm absolutely no expert on the sit-sliding thing, but as far as I can tell, you have to start to sit down while turning left or right (for any duration, even very short), and quickly move, ideally with the mouse. I'm terrible at the last part. What you saw was probably me using the keyboard to go forward, and then swapping to go backwards without letting go of at least one of the movement keys. I need to practice a whole lot... Magic helps too. ^_^

It's all kinds of late where I am, so I've probably made a bunch of mistakes that I'll spot just after the option to edit the comment disappears.

Oh my gosh my replies are really dang long. I hope that's not a faux pas...

:'> Haha yes, they've been outfox'd xD
I am happy every time I find you in the forest.. You were after all the first one I met Smiling
I know that feeling, yesterday I was all thoughtfull and weird but I didn't leave on account of you, I just had to go to bed Sticking out tongue

We'll meet again Laughing out loud
ShrinkingRose's picture

@SylvanRah, you can call me

@SylvanRah, you can call me as you want (Rose, Lilly, Mandel) up to you Smiling Yeah, I thought about Sylvan but I checked and there is already one with it on the forum. Actually, I call your deer “P” because of the picto…sorry! Hahaha, it’s just that pictograms are too abstract for me and when it’s possible I relate them to existing concepts and things.
I try not to cast spells on deer (only when they want it) but I’m really slow sometimes. Maybe I shouldn't cast spells at all…
Now you’re almost in every update, heh, building up the fame Laughing out loud
Okay, see you in the Forest (also sent you a note on DA but you have probably seen it already Eye informing you just to make sure).
Urschanabi's picture

Hey, I love long

Hey, I love long replies!)
Would be glad to see you again. I usually play at weekends, because of the work.
Tried what you suggested on sit-sliding. Sometimes it works, but only for a short time, then the deer always stands up. Gotta practice as well)
