What up bois
It’s ya gorl, Red web, aka KABSBABAKA, aka brassknuckled penguin.
We all know why I’m writing here. For a lot of you, we’ve seen this all too many times before. For a couple of you, this is your first time seeing this and hey, it won’t be your last because life just kinda hits you that way sometimes. I don’t know about y’all but being the one on this end hurts way more than it is reading these posts. Before I get more sappy, I do want to be clear that this isn’t exactly goodbye. I’m too invested in this group to even begin this painful little speech. Ulti’s also takin his time to fire me so I mean here we are.
I joined the Rebel Federation a day after New Years. I was just drilling away, amazed that my childhood game is back and that you didn’t need a membership to get all the cool stuff, when a penguin with a cool outfit came in asking people if they wanted to join their little community. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know or care about pins or hidden items in the catalogue (I can’t find the red scarf in the gift shop) but a community sounded fun! Little did I know, I was in for a hell of a ride. I’m eternally grateful to weebwad for opening my eyes to such a beautiful group.
Blah blah, lots of reading and lots of my writing which – if any of you really know how lazy and illiterate I truly am – ain’t floating my boat too well. So I’ll put in some significant dates.

Damn look at me listing stuff down like I was relevant or somethin hahahaha.
There are a few reasons for my retirement. As much as I tell everyone to always hold your real life before RPF, I honestly don’t follow this myself. When I first joined I was in a really bad place in my life and I ended up depending on the group so much I slept for 4 hours a day and I lived and breathed this community. Although I’ve learned not to do this anymore (because it’s way beyond bonkers), I have to admit I’ve put too much of my life into it for now. Don’t get me wrong, my sole purpose here is to help the community. Everything I’ve done has been for the RPF community, and I love each and every one of you with all my heart. But it’s time for me to focus on myself.

I’ll surely miss all the HOT TEA. I’m not like dying or anything so don’t be afraid to reach out. But no matter what, I want you all to know that in the face of losing yourself or feeling like the community is at a loss, never forget – when in darkness, we rise. We will always prevail. I’m so sorry to those I promised I’d get red. This wasn’t supposed to happen this early, but life has kicked me in the nuts one too many times. Red4Red isn’t dead y’all. I will see you all again soon. Fight the good fight.
