I, StarRisk, former Algai, forever mintee to LilyElizabeth, do declare:

 

Declaration of Self: I am a Father, Husband, Twin, Brother, and Son. Family to many, Friend to all. I began reading WoT to escape reality, the harshness of it, the hypocrisy of adults, and to go on an adventure. I found it, I believe in it, and now I get to read WoT to my family. I found DM in 2000, a year out of high school, while cruising the still fresh minted Internet (for us commoners), while looking for anything related to WoT. I found it, I watched with disbelief as all the wonderful people congregated around WoT. My own insecurities kept me from engaging, but i watched and waited. Twenty years later, I have found my way back, renewed by my sons, and my new found sense of self. 


Declaration of Commitment: As an Algai, I have enjoyed participating in the many games and banter on DM. Truly a great crowd of diverse folks, with all the variations in the rainbow of opinions, backgrounds, and experiences. I have contributed my own thoughts and ideas to many discussions, noted improvements for DM and various groups, and I love visiting the Ajahs! Helpful and thoughtful messages from my friends here got me through a rough time. I can share now that my twin of 22yrs passed 16yrs ago, and it still gets me down around the time of his passing and our birthday. The fine people here had nothing but empathy and encouragement and it means the world to me. Thank you.


Declaration of Intent: As a Manshima and Der'manshima, I plan to polish the shining walls of DM. To contribute positivity, open-mindedness, and some fun in a world that can be downright mean sometimes. I hope to guide others to DM, lead those that are here by example and good stewardship. I aim to misbehave now n then, within the context of the Rules and without hurting others! I am beginning to stretch my arms and legs in the Disciplines and will continue to do so, as long as the wheel turns.
 

So say I, Star Risk, the 5th of December, 2020 and the twelfth day of Danu in WoT.

Congratulations, Mintee-mine. I loved your declarations. I am sorry for your loss. You must have been very close. I'm really glad you found DM again. You've been a fantastic addition to the team.

Glad you are back! It's been awesome having another new person (even if you were here 20 years ago) around to join me in some shenanigans!

 

All I can do is give you lots of hugs, as I feel there aren't any words or phrases (in English at least) that convey the empathy and sympathy I feel. This is where my Yellow streak comes in, and the desire to take away feelings of pain and discomfort. I'm happy to hear you found support and comfort in us here at DM during a difficult time for you. 💙

It is strange to come across people who found this place at a similar time as I did. It's been quite a journey for you! I can't imagine such a loss, and my heart bleeds for you. Your growth and what you bring to your family, I too can relate with children of my own. Husband and I met through WoT as well and we're counting down until we can hand them the books. 

 

Congratulations on your raising! I expect great things from you and look forward to see who you are becoming! ❤️

I knew there was a reason we got along so well. 😈 Maybe a size 12 sword?
