Cake Nintendorks Celebrate 1 Year of Nintendorks Island!

Post by Rapsheba555 on July 27th 2010, 9:49 pm

On this day, the First of August in the year of Two-thousand Ten, we Nintendorks celebrate the one-year anniversary of Nintendorks Island, our now-beloved home. Today, we look back on where we have been, and what this site has been, is, and will be. We remember the start of Nintendorks on ModTheSims (then still ModTheSims2) with The Super Mario Project ("This is the project that never eeeends" ♪), our move from ModTheSims to what would become our new home, Nintendorks Island, and the growth of this wonderful site.

To celebrate this growth, and to encourage it, we are proud to announce the expansion of the Nintendorks network to include Nintendorks Island's fan page on Facebook and Nintendorks Island's Youtube Channel, soon to be followed by Nintendorks Island's Sims 2 Finds Blog (run by our own WWW), and the return of the NintendorkWiki. As previously announced, we also recently got a dedicated NI email address, info.nisland@comcast.net. We will soon begin to host tutorials via our Youtube page, and once we begin, we invite you to submit your own tutorial!

In addition, we are pleased to unveil the official flag of The United Monarchical Micronation of the Nintendork Islands


To top it all off, we have a totally new site design, with a slightly different layout and new features! As well as all that, we have added new personal contact buttons: Steam and Xbox Live , which you can edit via your personal profile.


I still have some tweaking to do to the site's design, so I assure you that the currently floating island will be fixed. Lol All throughout this month I will be making improvements and adding new things, so stay tuned for an even more updated NI in the coming weeks!

Next, I invite you all to post your favorite Nintendorks memories, memes, or whathaveyou in this thread to help us remember how far we've come in just a year!
:P Also, we invite you to include what you like most about the Nintendorks!

Edit: I have now opened the Helpcentre, which will soon replace the FAQ button up top. We do not have all of the articles written up yet, but we soon will. Smile In addition, Site Issues has moved there, and can be found under "Other..."

One of my favorite memories was finally deciding that if I know the difference between Sonic and Shadow, and between a Charizard and a Charmeleon, I am probably a Nintendork. Then discovering that Pescado is also a Nintendork!

Well, I remember browsing the groups on MTS when I stumbled upon this group. I was curious so I joined in. I cannot remember exactly how I met everyone. I would choose a fave Nintendork memory, but I cannot remember any atm. :/


As for the site design, it is nice, clean, and organized. I like things organized :3

Since I'm new I don't have much memories to share. What I like most about Nintendorks is that everyone here is nice and friendly so I never feel uncomfortable even though I hardly know anyone of you. I hope to get to know you all better! Smile

Memories.. memories.. too many, and too good. I remember telling yesterday to WWW in the chat that my good memories, all the Nintendorks ones, are in sepia in my mind : D

15 months ago, the 30th of April of 2009 I joined Nintendorks in MTS after finding it lurking at Lew's posts, and finding it really interesting. I already knew some of the members, but not much: WWW from Creator Feedback, Raps from TSMP (but I guess he didn't know me hehe), Lew from CFF as well, Vampy, that joined a bit after me, from Goth Simmers, Jon from the CFF too, Alfie, that joined a while after, from Goth Simmers.. well, you get what I mean.

But then I joined it, and I thought.. well, it's a group to play some online games, have fun and that's all. And that's when I met you all, you lovely people that have changed my life. Every single day was better than the day before, every single day I was getting to meet you all better, and you were just too awesome. How could people from all over the world and without knowing them in RL be so nice to each other, deffending one when they needed it, comforting, supporting... That's almost impossible in such a big group, I haven't seen it anywhere else, seriously.

Then, one day, I realized that I couldn't be without you, my life without you would be so empty that I can't imagine it.
At the end of July, Delphy made harder his rules about spamming in MTS.. and we needed to spam, we needed to talk, and chat and derail.. so Nintendorks Island was set up, "A Place Where Nintendorks Run Free", and that's what it is (:

And now, a year later, it seems that it was yesterday, but it also seems that I've known you for all my life. You all are brothers and sisters to me, and I love you, so much.. and we should totally buy an island in RL and live there, with our rules and our lives (: Damn, I'm crying now.. well, I love you guys, and I'm sorry if I don't post much, or don't go much into the chat, but you can be sure that I go here every single day and read all the new posts, because just seeing you talk makes me feel better (:

*huggles all and never lets go* And you can also be sure that if nobody has been able to split us after what we have gone through all this time, nobody will ^^

Lots of love and hugs,

-Nina-

PD: @Raps, I love how the site looks ^^

Awwwwww Nina! It's hard to make me cry, but that really pushed my buttons. Love

Well, now how do I follow that? Lol Nintendorks has been one giant whirlwind for me. It's like the family I never expected. On October 15th of 2008 I started the Super Mario Project, never anticipating what it would snowball into...pretty soon we were driving Canoodle mad with our spamming, and thus Nintendorks was born. That pretty quickly snowballed as well; I still remember the flame war with Da Girls' Club. Rofl That's one of my favorite memories as I look back on it. We were one of the largest groups on MTS, and eventually outgrew it. So we moved here, and ever since things have just been getting better.

Every day I look forward to browsing the forums and especially to going on the chat, and our skype calls are pretty awesome as well. Every day I look forward to NI, it has taught me so many things, useful to my career, and as a person. Had i never posted in the CFF at MTS about the castle, I would have never learned so many things, and I never would have met so many people. Nintendorks has literally changed the direction my life has taken, and i wouldn't have it any other way. So many wonderful things have come of this great group of people that have affected me so deeply, and I feel I can never repay all of you for simply being a part of my life.

*wipes her eyes* Okay, now I'm getting way too emotional! Okay. Deep breaths. Here goes. This is my nintendorks story.

As most of you may or may not know, I'm an invalid with a disease that doesn't have a name, or a cure. It gives me really painful headaches and muscle pains all the time, and recently even my legs have sometimes stopped working. Because of a sensitivity to light. sound, and even physical tasks, I spend almost all my time in the house. Often I won't leave for months at a time. Because of this, I never got to go to prom, I haven't been able to graduate from high school, and I haven't been able to go out and make friends. I can sometimes go out, hang out with friends, and such, but the result is usually being bedridden afterward and often coughing up blood and vomiting.

Is everyone properly depressed yet? Yes? Okay. Here's where it becomes a happy story!

So, I found MTS. There were many pretty shiny things there and I thought 'I want to make pretty shiny things of my own!' And I did. And there was much rejoicing. By myself. Alone. But then I discovered Creator Feedback Forum, and I realized that I had a lot of advice I could give to people who were also making custom sims content. I actually enjoyed giving advice so much, I now am seriously considering one day becoming a teacher.

So then Raps comes into CFF and he has this Nintendo Castle, right? And I'm all like: 'Sweet! But your foundation isn't flat!' And he's like 'Yeah it, is.' And I'm like: 'Okay, sure.' (it actually was) And he's like 'So what do you think of this thing I made? And I was like 'Cool, but the shading could be-"' Well, you get the picture. And the more awesome stuff he made and the more me and other people gave feedback on it, the more we realized we had more in common then just sims. And what's more, we wanted to talk about it. But talking about eye disease and underwater dump trucks may not be relevant to 3D castle building and the mods were always asking us to get back on topic.

So then, we formed a Nintendorks social group onto MTS, but then we spammed too much THERE, so we moved to here. And there was much rejoicing. But this time, I wasn't alone.

To be able to have a life again. To be able to have friends so close and so trusted and so much like family. To not feel like being sick means my entire life is over. To finally have a reason to get up in the morning. To finally feel like my life means something. That I can do more than wait around for a cure; I can live.

It means more to me than I could possibly put into words. For every single Nintendork who is friendly, wonderful, and so so amazing, I can never thank you enough.

I love all of you. Thank you.

Haaaaappy birfday!

I'm not good at the happy lovey-dubby emotional stuff like Nina, Raps, and WWW. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment? Wink


My favorite memory? Lemme see...

Driving Canoodle insane? No, I was just lurking then.
Driving Delphy insane? Possibly.
Lying pregnant girl/guy/thing? No, that was teen club...

Oh fine, I'll tell my story...

Once upon a time there was a geeky guy who kept posting on Raps' CFF thread saying completely useless things like "Oooh! SHINEY!" He joined the social group on MTS about a month or so after it was created (Back when there were only 3 pages of threads!) and quickly made some hilarious, though freaking insane, friends. Smile When the Dorks traveled across the deep dark and scary popup ad sea in search of a new land where they could be free from the Great Delphy's rule and spam however they pleased, their sailboat crashed on a tiny island. It is unknown how they all fit on a tiny sailboat, but they did. Elephant was quickly made the Moderator of Goombas, and was happy for several months until his photography business ate his interweb spamming time. At the next tribal council meeting he voted himself off the island, and vanished. Though he will randomly post something on the island or MTS to see how all the N'Dorks are doing (like now!).


Oh wait!
Ham cookies! Every reference to them is my favorite part of the Nintendorks. Very Happy

Happy birthday! Nintendorks Island!
The new background and icon thingamajig look awesome. Very Happy
I'm not good with emotional stuff either. Or memories. But, I -think- I joined sometime last December. Or, according to my profile, the 30th of November. I was close. I joined the page on MTS quite some time before that, but never really posted - or even lurked. Up until August/September last year I only downloaded and very rarely looked at the forums. Anyway, I almost instantly went into chat. Since then I think I've been in the chat almost every day, and I swear it has nothing to do with the fact that I have no life, it's just that I love you all. ^_^
Well, maybe it's both. But more the second.
You guys are all awesome, You've changed my life and even personality a lot, in a good way, though I think some of my acquaintances in that annoying thing called real life would not agree - and that's possibly for the better. You helped me have the courage to stand up to certain people in my life, you're probably the best and closest friends I've ever had, even though most of you live thousands of kilometers away. I hope someday to meet at least some of you in real life.
Oh, and did I mention I love you all? *hugs everyone*

Happy Birthday!!!! :DDDD

And about a memories, I remember a lot. Smile

I have joined MTS on September 2006, because I was Sims freak, and I saw so many cool downloads I want in my game. Then I found social groups. Ofc, I saw Creator Feedback , but I wasn't creator and that looked like some rich V.I.P group for people, where all of you drink expensive drinks and talk about things that lousy mortals like me knows nothing about. So I was afraid to post. (goddamnit I was so... Lol ) But I was sneaking around so much and watching what are you special people doing here. Then I saw Raps for the first time. I was impressed by his creating and meshing ability so much I said to myself: Angie, youlittleworthlessshit, you have to try yourself in this!!! Let existence of Raps guide you! (Really I wrote that in my diary, If I find it I'll post picture) xDDD So I started stalking Raps and reading every post by him everything. I can't remember how long I dared myself to ask you for some advices. I was like: He is modeling god, if I say something stupid he will think I'm stupid. But I always had my eye on you Raps Creepy sorry :] I got 3D S Max for myself because of you.

I remember the first two groups I joined were Vampire and Goth Simmers. Then I saw Nina and Shannon. Then I started to talk. Smile Nina had some pretty sim vampire smiling avi so I thought: person with this avi can't be evil, and I introduced myself. I found out that Nina and I are same age, same zodiac sign, that we live similar lives and have similar problems, interests even personalities. And I started to like her very much. Shannon always looked to me like kind of leader, authority, very intelligent person, and I respected her without even knowing her that good.

Then I joined Nintendorks, and met everyone else. Very Happy I remember WWW and I were working on Suigintou sim for me. I have to say I was surprised by her will for work and her commitment to work and I was like wow, I could create too.
I thought Fergus is a girl xDDD And I liked Lewjen so much because he is funny and BLOND, especialy because he is NATURAL BLOND, my never-become-truth-dream. xDDDD
I have met many of you in "How do you pronounce my name" threads. I remember I always had a problem explaining how Serbian language works xDDD I wished I could record my voice and post there xDDDD Them I found that funny link where Denny teach people to speak serbian, and all you guys learn was: U PICHKU MATERINU (motherfucker) Rofl

I remember Nina and I praying everybody to let us in "Just for boys" group hahahaha, That was hard. And I talked on chat soon about it, I also remember when we found out we can write colorful text, and we made admins mad. xDDD
I remember when we had that all together project of one city and we all had to make community lot. And it was supposed to be secret , but I ruined it by telling Sayde. I was mad cause he was not part of project and my sense of justice was on high level then. xDD I remember Alfie and me made fight in group about it xDDDDD
Yeah, we spam a lot there xDDDD

I just wanted to say I'm so happy I have met all of you, you are wonderful lovely people, I can't imagine my life without you now. *hugs all*
I LOVE YOU Love Love Love Love

Aw man, a year already. And the memeroies, Dubja and I sharing psychic connection through our pink and green tentacles, the mistaken sexes from Raps and Fergus being girls and Kyle and I being mistaken for guys (especially during the girls club attack). Even tryong to say all of our usernames/real names out loud. I'm lookin at you Ri and Sayde.

My first post at Nintendorks was the Picture game. I was watching all the fun everyone was having, posting the more random of thing and nobody caring. So I decided that I should join too! I had finally found people who weren't afraid of who they were and that was my kind of place.

Nina was one of the first people I remember meeting. We join each others groups at about the same time and from there we found out how much we really had in common. And the more and more people I met, the more and more I had in common with you guys.

And as corny and weird as this may sound, this thread kind of really gives me a reason to wake up. I can live through the problems that everyone has, share both their pain and their joy and help them through it. As you know, I love to give (hopefully good) advice and that is something I enjoy doing.

You all are my best friends. I know that you won;t stab me in the back, I know that you have no reason to lie. I know that I can trust you and I can't tell you what you have done for my self esteem, my trust issues, my depression, and my general hatred of people. You have proved my instincts wrong, you have showed me that there still is good people in the world and that the group of us could meet and be so civilized to each other, without even knowing anyone.

We have become the best of friends and I couldn't be where I am today without you guys. I hope to be here for a long, long time. Nintendork Island, home sweet home.

On that note, I shall leave you with this:


Oh, and I'm reporting my post so i can see the new button in action.XD
The site looks great, HAPPY B-DAY NINTENDORK ISLAND.

Post by Rapsheba555 on August 2nd 2010, 5:55 pm



My castle is more awesome than MAXIS'S SHIP, AND THUS MAXIS ITSELF! >:U

And anyone remember thissssssss?

Spoiler:


Sayde sat alone in the sand, shuffling his feet around. He looked up, and saw once again the ship leaving him behind. He squeezed his eyes shut and forced back tears, trying his hardest to pretend it wasn't happening. The water was clean and clear, a pale blue, and the sand was almost white. The palm trees sighed as the wind blew around them. Sayde had a Captain Morgan Black Label sitting beside him, slowly emptying the longer he stared at the disappearing cruise ship.

The sun sank, and the moon arose.

Sayde woke up to the pain of sand crabs nibbling at his feet, and shooing them off realized the sand that accumulated in his hair and pants. Trying his best to empty the sand, he looked for the bottle that was giving him his only comfort. It was half buried in the sand, and almost as dry. Sayde sat down on the dark beach again, and noticed that the boat was long gone; only the moon shone, illuminating the sky to a deep blue.

Angela sipped her martini through a straw and stared out at the ocean. She was dressed in a lavish, long black dress with an open back and seducing leg slit. W caught sight of her and wondered why she wasn't inside, at the party. Joining her on the deck of the boat, W quietly spoke, "You okay?" Angela seemed surprised that she was there, and blushed, ashamed W had caught her in such deep thought. "I just wonder if we should have left him behind."

"Who? Sayde?"

"Yeah... He doesn't seem like he could fend for himself out there... alone."

W sighed, and leaned against the railing of the ship. "It's not our fault he doesn't own The Sims 3. We had to move on. Sims 2 Island is sinking and we just don't have room for people who don't have TS3." Angela's eyes filled with tears and anger.

"But we had room for the espresso machine! We had room for the karaoke machine! Dammit, we even had room for the Cowplant!! We just, LEFT HIM THERE!" W backed away, thinking it'd be best if she were alone. Fergus came out into the brisk night, looking for W. "There you are." He said, smiling. W smiled softly and was walked back into the party in the arms of her date.

Nina watched the party from afar, a weary mother ashamed of her son. She was dressed in her best, yet she looked awful. Lew pulled and gnawed on his leash, begging to get out. "No honey," Nina said weakly, jerking the leash back, choking Lew. "You can't play tonight. The grown-ups are having fun."

The party was amazing, even without Sayde there. The dancing and music made Angela smile, the small movement of her lips made her forget her worries, as she swayed back and forth, dancing with Elephant. Nina felt flustered with embarrassment and flirt as she slow danced with Aled.

Rod Humble was wearing his Bishie Gawth suit. It was rare that he actually got to go the the parties he hosted, being the captain of the ship, but an associate of his took over for the night, allowing him some free time. He wore a cute spiked collar, form fitting torso, and a sleek, evil white tiger to top it off. Dancing elegantly with VOD, his tiger roamed towards a worn mother and her child. Lew was busy dribbling and sucking his thumb when a giant kitty sat in front of him. "Kitteh!" he said. Nina jerked the leash back. "Shoo, you fowl animal." The tiger frowned at this, and moved on, sure to claim his prey later.

Sayde walked through the cool sand towards the flames of campfires. The wind was cool against his cheeks, but his heart was heavy with grief. He was alone, or at least until he got to this damned fire that seemed to be getting farther away with each step. Finally he arrived at the fire. Some non-Nintendorks sat around the fire, dirt on their faces, but beer in their arms. "Hey ya'll..." Sayde announced. GreenDaySim looked up. "SAYDE!!!" She promptly glomped him and sat back down next to her picture of Gerard. "Hey GreenDay..." Making himself comfortable near the fire, Sayde wondered what most of the Nintendorks were doing upon the ship.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on the island Raps was viciously fighting off a swarming flock of lavalamps that resolutely refused to be lit. Cursing under his breath every time he beat one down and it came back to life and back for more, he idly wondered what had happened to half the island's population overnight. He had only been gone for about 6 hours, and when he came back WWW, Zim, and many others seemed to have disappeared into the polygonized air. All that remained were these little slips of greenish paper that looked suspiciously like ticket stubs, but for what he had no idea. Interrupting this thought was a particularly large specimen of Lampy Fourlegs hurtling straight at his face. After fighting it off, he realized that there were yet more lamps arriving every second, none of them lit. Screaming a battle cry and plunging at them headfirst armed with only his wits and a few word of wisdom from the long-gone Numenor, he fought on.

Wandering over like a toddler to the enormous crowd, a 3 foot high white tiger walked in front of the 4-year old Lew. Ri the tiger grinned, Lew smiled like only a 4 year old can and yelled "KITTY!" Left unattended by his mother for a few moments, he hugged the tiger and buried his face into the fur of its neck. "Pretty kitty..." Lew sighed. Ri gently picked Lew up with his teeth and set him on his back with cat-like grace.

Click. Click. Click. The sound of the large cat's claws echoed down the halls of the empty cruise ship. All others were at the party, while the toddler and tiger roamed the corridors freely.




W was sitting at a table on the abandoned side of the ballroom, clearly deep in thought. She was wondering about those left behind, and how they would fare with their population and resources cut in half. She knew that the resourceful ones such as Peeps and Raps would be fine for at least a little while, but she questioned the survival of the weaker members of their once powerful tribe. The tribe had protected the weak from starvation and death. Now, she thought, they'll really be in for the fight of their lives. She knew that some she had once known and loved would perish alone and cold, and though this bothered her, as long as it was smooth sailing on her end she would try to push it from her mind. Just then, the lights went out, and the comforting hum of the ship's engine faded to a small buzz before finally stopping altogether, leaving the party goers in shock. The room was silent for a few moments before the hum began again and the lights came back on. Seconds later captain Rod Humble's voice came over the loudspeaker. He said "Sorry about that, no need to worry. We just had a slight glit..." and the power failed again. Once more, it came back on for a few seconds before failing again. This repeated itself over and over, and eventually the power didn't come back on. People started to panic as the sound of rushing water became more and more audible...

Some engine facility on the ship...

"We don't have the power! We can keep the ship running for a little while, but the ship is just so energy-intensive that the motor can't handle it. We'll have to wait for a service ship to bring us a new engine. In the meantime, we'll just have to tell the passengers to stay calm and just try to relax while we wait."

"They won't like that."

"Yeah, but they're such big suckers for this cruise they'll be willing to wait."

"Okay, it's your head, not mine."

"Do you hear that?"

"What?"

"It sounds like.....water....."

Back on the island, Sayde swallowed some wine and stared at the fire. Him, GreenDaySim, DeadBlood, and some other non-Nintendorks sat around, talking, laughing, glad to be on The Sims 2 island. The sound of shuffling sand filled Sayde's ear. He turned around to see who it was and gasped.

Shattered glass and metallic parts lay strewn all over the beach. The lamps refused to light, so Raps just decided to destroy them all. "Now to find out where everyone went..." he said.

Fergus kissed W lightly on the cheek and excused himself, telling her that he needed a bathroom break. Walking down a southern corridor, he found an empty room, free from surveillance. Fergus pulled out the cell phone. Without dialing, a voice whispered, "Have you killed him yet ZimZ?"

"No," Fergus said, replying to his codename. "I'm stuck dancing with some girl." He said, thinking about W's sweet face.

"Get rid of her, she's just an obstacle."

Fergus bit his lip. "It'd be a waste of resources sir!"

"I don't care. Kill her Zimz, or you will be eliminated."




Three days earlier...

W was storming around her and Raps' apartment overlooking the port where a large green cruise ship was moored. It had arrived amid much pomp, circumstance, and balloons. The day it had arrived, W had gone over cautiously and skeptically to ask about what exactly the cruise would be like and where it would go. The captain, who seemed slightly like he was hiding something, explained all the exciting things she would see and experience on the cruise, slowly luring her in like a fish on a line until she bit and bought 2 tickets spur-of-the-moment. The way she figured it, once on the ship they wouldn't be coming back so they wouldn't be needing this island's money anymore, so it was okay, right?

As she had walked back to her apartment she debated how to present the idea to Raps to leave forever this island of lesser quality and scenery for bold, new uncharted waters and lands where they could roam free from their house out into the world. Casually punching a passing ninja in the face, she decided to just tell him straight-up that she would go with or without him and hope that he would follow her out of their friendship. As she was walking up the stairs to their floor, her anxiety rose and she wondered What if he refuses? I want to go, she thought, but what if he doesn't? Will I be able to convince him? What if I can't? She contemplated calling her friend Angela (who had been excited about the cruise since she first heard about it months earlier) to ask what she should do, but thought better of it because Angela's idea of convincing someone involved a brick and a 5-foot long rope. W had now convinced herself she wanted to go, it all seemed so glamorous! But first, to convince Raps. Gotta do that before I can go, she thought.

Walking into their apartment wearing her best smile, W looked at Raps sitting on the couch. He looked back. She continued to look. This went on for several awkward moments before she broke the silence by clearing her throat. "Well?" Raps asked. "I...well, it sounds nice..." W stuttered, seeing the skeptical look on Raps' face. She went on to repeat everything the captain had said as verbatim as she could. Afterward, she asked him what he thought. "I'm not impressed. I think I’ll stay, I can do more interesting things right here on this island. And I'm used to it." W's heart fell about 30 stories through her chest and smashed into her pelvis like it was a sidewalk.

"Wha...?" she asked.

"I'm just not interested right now." Raps answered. W just stared into space with a thoroughly devastated expression on her face.

"All right, what is it?" Raps asked.

"Wh...what do you mean?" W lied.

"I can tell, something's wrong. What is it?" demanded Raps.

"Nothing...it's...it's nothing..." W tried to cover.

Sighing, Raps got up and started to walk down the hall to the kitchen but before he had gotten the whole way, W shouted "I'm going whether you do or not! I have tickets already, and I want you to go with me but I will go without you if I must. I want you to come with me..." she pleaded. Raps looked intently at her. "I'm sorry, but I just can't leave yet...I'm so used to it here...I love this island and the thought of leaving forever is too much. Why can't you stay? Nothing about that cruise sounds that great...wait until the next one comes and it's better!" he said. She shook her head, tears in her eyes. "So many of my friends are going...I have to! It looks so great!" she stated. Raps simply turned around shaking his head and walked to the kitchen to fix dinner.

Now here she was, storming around the living room trying to figure out how to convince him. She was so mad at him for not agreeing to go! She loved this island as well, and felt a small twinge of sadness at the thought of leaving it forever, but boy did the adventure that cruise promised sound great! She wanted raps to come so badly...

Meanwhile, across the island's capital city of Pleasantview, W's friend Angela was having a similar battle with her fiancée Sayde.

"Why not?" she screamed.

"Because we can't afford it and this island is home, that's why!" Sayde rebutted.

"We only have to afford it once, and our money will be useless over there anyway! Let's just go! Everyone will be in the same boat once we get there, literally!"

"It doesn't matter, I'm not going!"

Angela threw her hands in the air and took a lap around the room mumbling to herself. Watching her, Sayde wondered if marriage was the best thing to do, but then he remembered how much he loved her. This thought was interrupted by the TV. The "Breaking News" theme played briefly, and just like it was designed to do, caught the attention of all those in the room.

"We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you this urgent breaking news. Scientists at the University of Desirada in Bluewater Village have discovered that the supposed rise in sea level is truly happening. they predict that at the current rate of sea level rise, the entire island will be under water in a little over a year. The cause of the alarming rise is unknown and is baffling all researchers studying it. They say to remain calm and that they will be working around the clock to find the cause and see if it can be stopped. We will bring you any updates on the situation as they happen. We now return to your regularly scheduled programming."

And so it did. Such an absurdly mundane ending to such an outrageously catastrophic announcement. The two stared in shock at the TV, not even seeing that it was playing their least favorite show "All My Plantsims." But they weren't watching it, just staring. Staring because their lives had just been shattered, shattered in a little over a year. Snapping herself out of the stupor she had just been shocked into, she looked at Sayde and said, "How about now? Are you willing to go now?" Sadye just stared back with the same expression he had worn when she had first announced that she was going. Angela knew what that look meant. He still wasn't going to go...

Back in the Present...

W was still sitting at that one table she had been sitting at before. The lights were still flickering and the power was still whacked up, but all the sane people had gone off to bed, including her date. When the captain had announced that they were dead in the water for a few days, most people gave up and decided to turn in for the night. But W was thinking, and wondering. She was wondering if what she had done to Raps was cruel. She had wanted to go so bad that the anger of the moment took over her actions and she had...

W let her head slip off the hand it had been resting on and hit the table, making all the martini and wine glasses jump a bit. She let out a small groan and a swear, wishing she hadn't done what she did.

Oh the memories. Lol
