*yet another possibly already made topic, shhhh.

I was telling a newer forumite earlier how much of a coincidence/near miss it was for me to have ever heard of Matazone. I had a friend online when I was much younger whose username was MitsukaiSiryuse, and we frequently teased him by calling him 'Mittens'. Out of the blue, another friend IMed me one day with an animation featuring a cat called Mittens and thought it would be hilarious to use to mock our Mit. I checked out the website, enjoyed some of the anims, and noticed the word 'forums' floating around. I had no idea what a forum was, so I decided to click it and find out..

And boom, entire life course set on a different path, all because of an IM joke to mock someone with an unfortunate nickname.

What got you here?

I completely blame my brother for this, always have. When I was living down in London in a flat share with Ryn he showed us both the LGG animations he'd come across on B3ta and knew we'd both be interested in. So I later went back and work through all of the the animations by this point there was something like at least a couple for each of the characters. I then noticed the forum button, so I push it with great trepidation as I'd never join a forum before and was sure what to expect from it. I then went to the 2nd meet the forum had in Winchester and have since been to as many as I could manage after that, and in doing so met many lovely people who have since come and gone who I still miss and made some really solid friendships with people I now see reasonably regularly (for hurling bread at ducks smile.gif ). Mata has alot to answer for! (one of which is on our very first meeting giving me directions that involved wiggles. Damn him!)


and I wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks Mata.
