People reply! People reply!

Only Smurf will get the title of this entry. I'll explain it to the rest of you, cause i'm nice that way...but as most inside jokes, it probably won't be funny even after its explained.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Smurf started an rp board based on the Harry Potter series. We (cause she drafted many of her friends into filling staff positions at Hogwarts) quickly became the largest, and best Harry Potter rp site on the internet. No exageration. Despite being the best, and despite the fact that we carefully screen all applications to join by having them submit a character history and writing sample...we still had several individuals who were still just a tiny bit immature. There were often several attempts at hosting a party. The opening post would go something like this...a brief description of assorted charms to create streamers or twinkling lights, an assurance that butter bear had been smuggled in, and some sentence about how cool their character was.

The opening party post often went ignored by the rest of the school, or at best was attended by a couple students posting with how cool their character was. Invariably though, these threads degenerated into the original poster spamming the tread with one or two line posts reading "This is going to be the best party ever" and then many posts each reading "People reply! People reply!"

so, I'm sitting here, cause the laundry monster is lurking downstairs. I'm trolling blogs that no one is updating cause many of my friends have gone over to the dark side of the force and only do facebook now. And in my head I'm chanting, 'People reply! People reply!'

And now you know, the rest of the story.

Check out where we're going this week. Hooray for us :)
