Back in late 2014 I met someone in Cyrodiil who would ultimately become my best friend. Things were initially tense because, as I'm sure the old-school players here can agree with, back at launch most people were still "cutting their teeth" on the game so to speak and there was arguably a lot more frustration/salt all around. This now-bestie of mine repeatedly kicked my mag-sorc a** on her nightblade and I was a little livid about it, but somehow after some back-and-forth via whisper, we became friends. Obscenities somehow turned into discussions of builds/what i was doing wrong with mine, which evolved further into talks about life, and so on. Eventually discussions turned to out of game life matters, leading to an intense bond that has gone on almost a decade now. I even had the privilege of meeting her now-boyfriend (who is also a good friend) in-game as well and seeing the two of them blossom into a beautiful out-of-game relationship. Sparing identifying details to protect her privacy, she's been through absolute hell but I'm so proud of her as she's out of college and doing so well in life! We've laughed and cried, bickered and joked, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. We've gotten each other through our darkest times and that's the kind of bond you find maybe once in your life.
Not going to name her as she appreciates privacy, but I hope she sees this and knows that a decade ago , her kindness to a lonely anti-social magsorc made a dramatic, positive impact on the life of another. Here's to many more years!
Raise a mug of mead for your friends, and tell me your story too!
