Some time last year, I joined a group called
(Although the original group was called something else). But I didn't join it instantly. I was actually very hesitant at first, mainly due to shyness. And I admit at first... I was a bit skeptical toward the idea. However, some where deep down, my curiosity had me keep an eye on the group, seeing how it worked, watching the creatures on there be created and shown. The more I read about these creatures, the more curious I got. Eventually, I got to where I began to like the idea. After much of deciding and waiting, I joined the group, taking in the first ever troll hybrid, Cloppy, as my first ever troll.
Even after joining, I was still a bit shy and awkward. However, I began to see just how amazing these other members were. They've had their shares of internet or real life trolls, much like anyone else. And I suddenly didn't feel like an outcast. I've had my share of these myself, mostly in real life, but also on the 'Net. As most of you know, bullying, which you can also call "trolling" on the 'Net, is a very, very serious thing. I myself, being autistic, therefore branded as "different" or "weird", endured years upon years of bullying. But being raised in a more gentle and loving environment, I never did much about it due to being a more gentle and quiet person. Even when I got the courage and told an adult about it... it either didn't do much or they did nothing. So you can imagine all the pent up anger and sorrow I've hid for so long, just letting them stew in silence.
Thanks to this group, thanks to these amazing people, and especially thanks to
, I can finally face those inner demons without causing harm to someone else. For those who think this group is "tainted", I ask you to be reconsider. Give it a chance. I did so, and I was hesitant toward it myself. But now I've embraced it with open arms, and have met some of the most kind, supportive and amazing people ever through this group. We're not mean, we're people who find this as a way to harmlessly deal with bullies/trolls we've dealt with or endured. Some times... people just handle things their own way. This group is just that to many of us, especially to me. I don't know where I'd be without the support and love from this group.
So from the bottom of my very heart, I thank you
, for making such an amazing group and also an amazing community!
I can't tell you how much I respect you and everyone else within the group! Thank you for letting me be apart of it, too!
