Remember when the MB only had a couple hundred pages?
Remember when we cheered it on to 100, then 200, then 300, and so on and so forth?
Remember when everyone would freak out if a mod or admin posted on their thread?
Remember the conspiracy theory of Gavin and Jen that almost cost them their jobs (how I remember it, anyway...)? Or at the very least, threatened their jobs?
Remember Vesper One's posts and the outrage that generally ensued (or, delight)?
Remember when 39 Clues was the only series? And how everyone thought it was the absolute best ever?
Remember freaking out and posting in all caps if you saw someone looking like a character from the books?
Remember when everything was 39 clues-related, instead of 1D or PJ or anything else?
Remember helping each other on missions and Clues on here?
*le gasp* Remember.... remember when there was no search bar?
Remember the RCD? (I'll love you forever if you know who they were... even if you don't, I'll still love you!)
Remember when everyone was a giant family, regardless of branches or political status or anything, and how we would always rush to defend one another?
Remember how all, or most, of us, absolutely hated Doomsday? And that bonded us together for a little while?
Remember the first time Worlds Collide ever happened?
Remember when people made "A-Z MBers' Alphabets" and if you were on there, it meant you were a famous MBer?
Remember that moment when you froze at your computer and realized... "Oh my gods....I'm an oldie?!"
Remember when family came first, and it didn't matter who you were, or what branch or council you were apart of, or what religion you followed, it just mattered that you were an MBer and that meant you were family no matter what?
Remember when us little ol' Mistresses started popping up, and then everyone wanted to become one? And there was confusion on what exactly "Mistress" actually meant, and it was hiliarious before we finally cleared up what we meant?
Remember when we all (secretly or not so secretly) had a favorite mod or admin?
Remember the Lyzzy family and children (and story!)?
I honestly want to cry, y'all. All these memories.... This MB was a cornerstone in my life, and I just want to say that you all (you know who you are!), especially my triplets (even though I know Korey probably won't ever see this), really changed and shaped my life. I came onto the MB, honestly thinking I was better than all of you (I know, I know, XD) and even through the drama and craziness I found a family. I left the MB, albeit a while back, with a new outlook on life, and I was kinder, more compassionate, stronger, and wiser. I also knew I had a family I could always come back to.
So, thank you. All of you.
And yeah, post more stuff! I wanna hear it!
