1st CBversary!

1st CBversary!
I cannot believe that this day has actually come. I have been planning this post in my mind since almost my first day here, waiting to celebrate an entire year here and thank all of you. By any account, 2020 has been a completely crazy year, and I am so glad that I have had the CB with me to help weather through. Suffice it to say that this year would have been very different and a lot less happy, if I did not have this place to come to. I have never seen or been a part of any other online community so creative, beautiful, and closely knit as this one. I can honestly call each one of you my friend, and this is truly something to be treasured. I wish there was room for me to say something special to each one of you, but, as it is, I’ll only share a few things.
Starseeker: You probably don’t know me well, and you might not even ever see this, but I just wanted to say how much I admire you. Your art, writing, and positive spirit are truly incredible, and you are high among my list of role models.
Brookeira: You, too, will never see this, but I have to say thank you for the invention of AEs. Abcde, arrogant and annoying though she is, is a huge part of my life, and I love her very much. Without you, I might never have known her, and I am indebted.
Hummingbird: You were the first person to comment on my silly introduction post last year, and your welcome to the CB was warm and wonderful. Thank you for ushering me into this beautiful world. I’m so sorry about everything that has happened here, and I will welcome you with open arms whenever and if-ever you choose to return for real.
Luna-Starr: Okay, first, the obvious. Your writing is incredible. Magicae Palace and its sequel-whose-name-I-don’t-know are utterly brilliant, and the style, references, and utter hilarity make them into masterpieces. Your sense of humor and beautiful poetry are utterly precious, and I’m so glad to know you.
Bakerloo: Thank you for having the idea for an Alter Ego advice column, and thank you even more for asking Abcde and I to be a part of it. The thread has sunk down in the pages, but I will attempt to top it once more. (SHAMELESS ADVERTISING HERE: BRING YOUR PROBLEMS TO ABCDE NOW!) Your jokes, puns, and etc can always make me smile. Plus, you (indirectly) introduced me to Politically Correct Bedtime Stories and Enola Holmes, and that in itself is truly great.
Luminescence: What can I even say? Your kindness, sweetness, helpfulness, and other nesses are beautiful and inspirational. Your pep-talks, especially on the confession thread, are wise and wonderful and have helped me more times than I can count. Lumi, you are a wonderful person, and I am so proud to know you and call you a friend.
NerdFace: Thank you for always being there, being my friend and talking to me whenever I need/want/feel like sending people random cheese emojis. You have supported me through my journey as a writer, and creating Camp Juniper with you is a high point of ever. YOU ARE AWESOME!
All authors, visual artists, and other creaters: It is so brave to share your creations with the world, and everything you make is wonderful. I am lazy and don’t comment on as many threads as I read, but I do see what you do. Thank you for making the world better.
Admins: Without you, none of this would be possible. You spend your days reading all of our comments and making the CB into a safe and wonderful place. Thank you so much, and I am sorry that this post is so long.
I love you all!
<3 Morning

Happy CBversary!!!!!!!!!!

You've always had such an influence on me during my time on the CB, and I can't imagine this place without you. I love chatting with you and hearing all the things you have to say, and you have so many great ideas, whether it's on the dragon rider's RP, MWW, or any other random thought you post. From PygmyOwl to Morning to one of my closest CB friends, I've really enjoyed getting to know you here and on YWP. 

I hope you have a fantastic CBversary, and here's to many more to come!

*confetti* (environmentally-friendly, of course)

Thank you so much, Mary! I'm so glad I know you, and it's been wonderful working with you and Feli to make MWW into a reality. You're a great friend, and the CB wouldn't be the same without you.

Happy CBaversary Morning!!! I'm not sure if you remember, but one of the very first threads I posted on was Daydreams Cafe, in which you offered a seat to me and helped me clean up some hot chocoalte that I spilled. You probably don't remember, but it meant a lot to me at the time when I didn't think anyone was paying any attention to me. You were one of the first CBers that I interacted with and one that made one of the most lasting impressions on me. Thanks for making the CB a better place <3

First, go un-exhaust yourself, Starch. Sleep, eat, read, whatever. Second, thank you, thank you, thank you!

And thank you for recognizing my wonderfulness.

Also thank you so much :))
