Thank you Monkey Island Fans

I always feel nervous about making a new thread, I don’t know why but I guess it’s because I put high expectations on my self, and just want to look cool like all other forum posters. (Don’t even know why I have that thought).

But anyway, I think this time I will relax and just go with the flow.

So what I want to do is what the thread name suggests, I want to thank you all in here for being Monkey Island fans.
I don’t have any friends who is as big a Monkey Island fan as I have just become. I have gotten 3 people to play ToMI, they enjoyed it but they are not as excited about it as I am, but then again maybe I am just an over excited person, but there is not really anything wrong with that :p

I must admit though that my fan status only started just recently (As I have just joined the forum this year).
I saw my brother play Curse of Monkey Island many years ago when I was about 10 or so, and later I watched him play Escape from Monkey Island when I was 13. But that was it, and I just slowly forgot about it. Then just recently I was bored and wanted to do something, so I watched some Let’s Plays on Youtube, and the Monkey Island series just happened to pop in to my mind, I watched them all from 1 to 4. After that I saw Tales and I watched it quite far and I thought it was very funny, and then my Boyfriend suggested I should buy it if I liked it so much, so I did.
After that I was instantly hooked, and I never regret buying it. Childhood memories came back, and I started to become a real fan, and started to regret that I have missed out on something so great as this all these years.
I only have ToMI so far, but in the near future I will buy SoMI:SE and when it comes out this summer, LR:SE.
I bought the Deluxe Edition of ToMI so I am waiting for the DVD and all the extra goodies, and I bought the Voodoo Cards. And when the finances allows I will buy a T-Shirt, the Mug and all the Buttons. And if anything extra comes out, I will buy that as well.

So yeah, in a short time I have become a huge fan, and just wanted someone to talk to about it, who feel the same way I do.
And this forum gives me exactly that, friendly Monkey Island Fans. It’s so great to have a place to share thoughts and excitement, when the real world don’t offer you those opportunities. So nice to know you are not alone :p

Oh and here at the end of my post I want to thank Wolfstar27, after just about 40 posts and you want to be my friend.
Just means that my achievement for coolness on a forum (Don’t know why that is important to me) is going somewhere, I have never had forum friends before, I feel so giddy :p

Ok I will stop my rant now before I embarrass my self, but again thank you people for being Monkey Island fans :)

  • You're welcome! Thank you, too, and thanks to everyone!

    I'm always enjoying this community, it seems we all have things to contribute that inspire one another, whether it's a comment, a debate or fanart (how would I have been able to make a narwhal strapped to a rocket without Majus? Now it looks good on my resume!)

    I think it's awesome that we can all share our love for the series. You know what they say, love is a unique resource in that the more you share it, the more you have of it :)

  • Yeah, I'm sort of in the same position. The only Monkey Island fans I know in real life are my older sister and my younger cousin, so I don't exactly get much time to discuss it with others. That's why the forums are so great, because I now have the opportunity to talk about this awesome game series with other hardcore fans like myself. It's a privilege I've had for almost a year now and I've loved every minute I've spent on here.

    It was especially good during the season. The amount of Fanart that flooded into these forums was incredible. The discussions after each episode's release were very intriguing, I loved hearing other people's theories and speculation on what would happen next. And the few hours leading up to each release were extremely fun, it was so good, you simply have to be a part of it when (or if) a second season is released.

  • Wow, 9 minutes and I get my first replies!
    This community is really great, you guys are all great!
    I am so proud to be part of this :p

    Ohh, trust me I will, my only regret as posted above is joining all this so late, I really missed out :)

  • Heeey, I wanna be your friend toooooo!

  • OMG!

    The Silwerwolfpet wants to be my friend! *Faints*

  • Yup... The Monkey Island fan community is one of the friendliest online communities, if not the most friendly! So... Does MI attract nice friendly people or... does it TURN us into that? :p

  • I want to be your friend too.... on the condition that you can moonwalk.

    just kidding.. we take anyone here.

    That sure is a hard one to answer, but in my case I am just a friendly person, and if there are people here who are not that friendly, I guess that is just the effect Guybrush has on them :p

    Lol, no I can't moonwalk, and I not a MJ fan to even want to learn.

    But hmm, I can touch my nose with my tongue, to gross? :p

  • - Hello, my name is SilverWolfPet.

    - Hi SilverWolfPet.

    - And before playing Monkey Island, I used to kick babies.
