Wiz .... and Friendships

Wizard101 has brought MANY amazing people into my life.  I am thankful every day that I found this game and the wonderful people that populate it.

Lady Blade, Sorceress Miklai and I all met at the Tri~Harvest Festival that Mercs for Hire sponsored in April of 2010.  I look back on that day now and am always SO thankful that I attended.  The 3 of us form the Unholy Trio and are closer than real family at this point. I actually talk more to my wiz sisters than I do my far-flung family!  We are on Skype most nights, instant messaging if we aren't voice chatting.  I also met Mi Tio, Alric RavenSinger there.  He loves to get into our Skype convos too -- but us females outnumber him!  Lady Blade is a sister of my heart for sure.  All too generous for her own good and has a heart bigger than God should allow!  She has been a shoulder to lean on in times of trouble, and is a master at making me laugh!  Sorceress Miklai, the other sister of my heart.  In many ways were are twins, born of different parents.  SO many many things in common, is not fair to others but we finish each others thoughts and think the same way.  I love my "Wizard" family as much as I love my IRL family.

Alric introduced me to Kevin BattleBlood one night -- someone was farming the Ravens (I don't remember who at this point) -- so Alric Kevin, Sorceress Mikali and I farmed them for hours that time.  That was the start of ANOTHER wonderful friendship.  It took longer for Kevin and I to hit it off, in many ways we are radically different, but have enough in common to bridge the gaps.  PvP is of course one of those things ;)

One of my bestest friends of course is Nathaniel EarthWeaver.  We started hanging out after I became a Merc, but he has been a staunch friend thru thick and thin.  He is actually the one who showed me how much fun PvP could be, and for that I thank him (even though he no longer likes PvP).  He isn't on as much as he used to be, but its all good.

Fallon DeathSlinger -- the warrior with a heart of gold.  Always ready to lend an ear -- or lay some tempests down to cool me off when things may not go well.  Glad I met you lady!

Ronan Dawn -- clown at heart, but has one of canniest minds I have met.  Has a wonderful insight in game mechanics AND life mechanics.

Scarzstripes aka "Missy" -- daughter of my heart, wonderful person and all around do-gooder.  Keep your chin up chica! Know we miss you!

Angel WinterBreeze (aka Sir WinterBreeze) has also turned into a very good friend.  I may not "hang" around as much with him, but it's always a good time when we are together.  I refer to him as my big brother, so Alric would quit teasing him quite so much.  He is an ice wizard, with a heart of fire ;)

Cassandra HexThorn -- what can I say but she is a "sister" in "name" for sure!  Hexy is one of kind and I am glad I met her and my circle of friends expanded once again.

John LifeGlen -- a gentlemen who shares the same home state with me.  At one point we were at odds, but no longer.  He is a gentlemen for sure, he inquires how I am doing and does his best to cheer me up when things aren't going so well.  He was kind enough to gift a Tawny Ram when I was at a low point emotionally shortly after WinterTusk came out.  Another person I am glad to have met.

Icy Wiz -- her Royal Iciness has helped me quite a bit from the day I met her.  Willing to lend an ear, and help in any way she can.  Truly Royalty in every sense of the word.

StephenSpiritCaller -- the necro with a sense of humor, and a heart large enough to hold all the fans of Ravenwood Radio.  He is a wonderful person and all around good guy.  He proves that men in black can still be heroes.

I am fortunate to name these people among my friends.  Take the time to think of YOUR friends, and what they mean to you.  Let them know, so they can see the joy you have in your relationships with them.

  1. Oh my goodness Cass! I am so touched to have been included in this post! I am sorry I was out of town and didn't see it until tonight. It wasn't until you joined the Ravenwood Radio nonsense, I mean team, that I was able to worm my way into your heart. I feel so fortunate to have been able to form a friendship with you and to have been able to share so much in just a few months. You are one of the "salt of the earth" people that this world needs more of; you are cut from the same cloth as Fallon MoonGem, remember? So now I'm hoping for a minimum of 30 years of friendship from you. :)
