It's been years since I've heard from GB and he appears to have deleted his old Facebook (or at the very least I can't find him either in my friends list or through search). However, I am pleased to be able to report that he is still alive and well. I checked his old Fanfiction.net profile, which I remembered from 2009-10, and he has posted recently there. I sent him a PM, though I don't know if he still checks the FF.n inbox since he seems to have moved on to other fanfic sites, but I figured some of the other oldbies here would appreciate that information.

Spoiler:
He's writing erotic Harry Potter fanfiction and apparently the reason he started using other sites is because FF.n deleted his smut. Razz

Funnily enough, I received an email notification for this thread...
It must be magic! Cool

Unfortunately, some jerk got my FB account suspended for no good reason whatsoever. I started a new one under a different name, but honestly, by that time I was over FB and all the BS!

Over the last year I have mostly been spending all my free time writing and posting Harry Potter fanfic at fanfiction.net and AO3. PM's on my fanfiction.net account will reach me.

I'm glad you still have e-mail notifications on here. Very Happy Once I remembered my FF.n account and reset the password I did send you a PM on there, but then I had to come back and edit my post here to reflect that. Razz

We've missed you a lot; it's good to hear from you again!

Well, Donald Trump is proving to be both horrifying and entertaining.

I'm a Bernie Sanders supporter of course--though I will hold my nose and pull the lever for Hillary if she gets the nomination.

And honestly, for the first time in my life--after nearly 40 years of being politically aware--I'm actually sick of politics! Razz

Sounds like we're in a similar boat with the candidates. I had gotten really sick of politics by the time I graduated (with a B.A. in political science Laughing) but I've started paying a bit more attention recently.  Guess distance really does make the heart grow fonder, or else not having to take exams on it made me remember why I found it interesting in the first place.

I'm still following things a bit--and doing a bit to support the things I believe in online--I just can't help myself.

But it was all the infighting on FB between Hillary and Bernie supporters which finally got to me. You'd think being a longtime Pragmatic Anarcho-Socialist who votes for Democrats--that I'd be inured to all that sort of thing--but I just couldn't take it anymore.

Not to mention that I realised that I needed to really focus on writing if I wanted to hone my skills enough to eventually write my own original fiction.

GB!! Shocked Shocked Shocked cheers

Great to hear from you again Ole Beard! Its been far too long.

Have you returned to us in the nick of time as the only person in the universe mad enough to defend PJ's Hobbit adaptations? I do hope so. Twisted Evil

Anyhow have a buckie on Figg, but from me, pub and I hope you pop by more often again.

Well, to Mrs Figg, I must apologise--Snape is spoken for by Narcissa Black. Wink
Sirius is spoken for by Lupin... though Lupin might be kind enough to share! Very Happy

It's actually Harry/Hermione, not to mention that it's a bit of a satire of a common fanfic trope:
Spoiler:
I turn the Harry/Multi/"Harem" trope on its head and made it a Hermione-sharing-Harry-with-her-girlfriends story instead.

If anyone here is actually interested in that sort of thing, just let me know and I'll post a link to Hermione's Furry Little Problem.

And Dear Petty, delighted to see you again old chum! Very Happy
Of course PJ's Hobbit adaptations are a work of sheer genius. :clap: :clap:

My singular complaint is that he bolloxed up the pairing when he stole my idea for a little-person/Tauriel pairing after reading my Bilbo/Tauriel fanfic.

I mean, geez, if you're going to fanfic the hell out of an adaptation anyway, why not go all the way the way and give us a juicy headcanon like Frodo being the secret lovechild of Bilbo and Tauriel, right? Wink

It was very kind of PJ to ship me and Galadriel though! Thumbs Up

I seem to recall a certain GB (who shall remain nameless, just initialled) making a similar suggestion years ago - back in the 1st Age. You know, after Dark Planet (or Taz maybe) desertified the Hobbit Movie Forum, after Bree self-destructed, and not long after Odo Banks saved the Hobbit Movie Refugees and singlehandedly (he says) created  the Brave New World of Forumshire (with a tiny contribution by  Eldorion and Petty and, yes, GB himself... Rolling Eyes ) Promises  promises promises...


Oh yes - Trump is entertaining.. Sort of like Morgoth in a clown suit. Very Happy

You've always been incredibly intelligent and fantabulously handsome, Orwell, and now I'm relieved to see you are no longer fatalistically trusting when it comes to wizards and their promised undertakings - especially when it comes to returning to Forumshire. Mad

In any case, hello old bean! Very Happy
Tis joyful to see your dark presence still haunting the Shire...

And greetings to Odo, the Cheery One!

Fair Mirabella, you can yank my beard anytime! Smile

Eldo retires. You return. What an emotional few days we're having. Sad

(If only for old times sake, Ol' Beard, pop over to Site Issues and perhaps doff your turban to Young Eldo. He's going on a Forumshiran Pension you know. Very Happy )
