I've just read through the entire thread and noticed Deathscythe's post mentioning me....aww thanks mate. There's a Citadel-related spin to my YouTube Welsh lessons by the way. I began them as a favour to Empy Claw, he was studying UK dialects at the time and wanted to learn Welsh. I have made many friends through them since.
As for being an agony Uncle, well in the intervening years, I've made a career out of caring. I now have nearly 20 years of working in mental health under my belt, I volunteer for a performance therapy group, and tonight begin a second voluntary role as a founder member of a support group for parents and carers of children and young adults with learning difficulties and mental health problems.
I'm not a parent myself, but I am a real life Uncle. I've shared my passion of gaming with my nephew, and when he's old enough, I'll introduce him to FF7. He's obsessed with Sonic though.
The online relationship? Aeris01 left me two months before our wedding, though time heals all rifts and we're still friends. She's recently moved to the eastern US to move in with her new beau. I was left both emotionally and financially bankrupt by it all, but I'm still here...helping others.
