Aya really is a virtual community. So much so, many of us develop feelings that cross into reality.
I find myself reflecting on my time at Aya. All the relationships I have developed. All the fantasies I have helped fulfill.
I met this saucy shemale from England on her wedding day to another prominent Aya figurehead. At the time, I roamed into Aya still in the avatar of a young boy. Talin didn't know me from nothing. As she was dressing for her ceremony, she invited me to attend her wedding. I couldn't imagine a person like this - so friendly as she was - and on a wedding day of all days! I mean anyone else could of said bugger off. Not Talin.
I roamed to 'Sissified' because at the time it seemed more active during the times I was able to come out. I never felt as welcomed, or that I mattered, to the powers who ran sissified. Not like Talin.
When a friend of mine told me about Talins RL difficulties, I remember I just wanted to be near her. She was not online when I was able to serve but I was a busy body. I cleaned and met new friends. Bubbles and Alexis among a few. Dolly and Kori always around. I came to Aya to help... help be a character who can make a difference. When Talin had returned I soon knew that what I did was right. I came to a place I can call home.
Politics aside, Talin always made us feel welcome and that we mattered. I just want it said that she matters to me. I think she matters to many of us. We may not always agree. But I would follow her anywhere.
I have deep friendships with quite a few at Aya. I would do anything for them as well. Kara and Stacy are just two loving contributors to Aya - I am grateful for your shoulders.
