Hello, everyone, and hope you have had a good holiday season as well a new year!
First thing before everything, I want to say I am extremely sorry for being completely absent for the past 2 years or more from all activities for the Gargoyles: Underground Warriors group and the stories of our original Gargoyles characters coexisting in my version of the Gargoyles universe. I made a terrible mistake. I took on a podcast project that begun to take much time from my own group, which I did not realize then, as I was seeking to support all of the Gargoyles fandom in its entirety back in 2013, and through 2014 and 2015 it had backfired into a long-term nightmare from treasonous trolls that once were some of my friends and partners. I was so emotionally wounded and constantly being attacked, I almost considered giving up doing anything anymore for Gargoyles. I tried to jump back in repeatedly, but I was too depressed and worried that I get back in only to bring the trolls after me once again. The trolling kept on making me feel my enemies badly wanted me to stay out of Gargoyles, and my will power of wanting to continue was too weak to get it going again. I needed time and peace to heal until I felt was safe and ready to try again. Originally, I openly joined the Gargoyles fandom to seek mental and social solace after my mom passed away some 5 years ago that I never got much support on as well even being a target by trolls for their soulless amusement, and do something fun to help make me happy from my struggle with deep depression and very low self-esteem. Plus, it was an act of demonstration to prove that any fan can be worthy and not some bug to be squashed by some want-to-be 'king troll' who hijacks a fandom to be his personal cult. Metaphorically, I was looking to be part of a 'clan' that would love and help me with what I could not do alone, and return that love however I could to all with appreciation. Looking back on my then rise into participating with the Gargoyles fandom seeing how the podcast project did so much harm to me despite some of the fun I had and turned people I thought were great artists into monsters, or at least blind fools easily swayed by monsters, I wish I never joined the show to begin with and worked with those individuals that lead to my downfall as well the changing of the show itself. But, I am still proud of my own stuff I have done so far with others who still like me before the podcasting spoiled everything. Thus, after the wait for the storm to have pass long enough and to recover from all the pain and failure I was enduring to the best of my ability, here I am now. Please, everyone, forgive me for abandoning you. If you cannot, I understand and graciously respect any wish you may have not to be in my group anymore, but I will do my best from now on to redeem myself to those who do and still have faith in me. Thank you.
Now, since I am back and have grown wiser and stronger from the tests put upon me, I am going to breath life back into all that I was doing for you fans and my own writings. This includes, most of all, new harder rules and the a heavy enforcement of them like never before! No more abuses and assaults to me and my friends and fans who still remain by my side by those who seek to be a troll or a parasite. No more going around my back to do things without my say so. No more ignoring my rules or sabotaging my works or those of others. NO MORE. You have any problems you have, please tell me as I would gladly wish to work on solving them. Otherwise, you do not like what I do or what the group does, please leave respectfully. If you just wish to be intentionally harmful in any shape or form, I will throw you out with DA administrators hot on your heels! I want this group to be safe and secure as well free and fun for all. This group is much as ours as it is mine and I will be DAMNED if I will let it be sacked and burned it like Rome as they have done to the rest of the fandom! They got their own groups and version of Gargoyles. Let US have our own! Screw them and how they want to force our characters and world into being theirs only through bullying. A detailed set of these rules will be written and posted soon as my second thing to do in making a come back here.
Now for the fun stuff. Besides my stories will be continuing once again, so will the 2 contests that I had left going forever. I wish be finishing them soon as well and seek to give you better rewards than previously stated for all those who participated in them. Additionally, the art gallery will undergo renewed reorganization as well, if need be, the staff membership. Just like before, I will see to it everyone gets to have a say of what to do for the group and try to get something to enjoy for everyone to do. People who have characters they wish to include in my stories will work with me on them so that both me and you are happy how it goes fitting into it. Last but not least, my character roster will return fully updated as well the previous chapters edited and returned for reading once more. Looking forward to a new and happy year with you all!
