Hey folks, it’s Cobalt, no, Spencer here, with some saddening news, and a lot of commas.
I was here for what, a month, a bit longer? Yeah, I know. I’m sorry if you all became somewhat attached to me. But listen, I’ll never forget this. Any of this. I’ll never forget being Cobalt, and I’ll never forget you. I’ll be 90 something, 100 or more if I’m lucky, on my deathbed and I promise, I swear, I’ll have this place in mind. You won’t know when I die, any of you online pals or fans, but if I were to get in a car crash tomorrow, I want you all to know I died loving you all.
Sorry for getting a tad personal, but I want my goodbye to be genuinely from the heart. I’ve always downright hated my environment. My school, my home life, my family hardships and so forth. I always wanted something just otherworldly to happen to me. Like, turn into The Flash or get a letter to attend Hogwarts. I never got struck by lightning, or an owl flinging himself against my window with an invitation to a wizard school. But, I did get an invitation to work here. The opportunity to work on a blog you’ve been a fan of for roughly half your life? Yeah, that’s pretty otherworldly.
So, why am I leaving? Why am I abandoning this community and game altogether? Well, there really is no way to word this without it sounding like a sob story, but here I go.
I need to work on myself, and pursue other interests and move on. I was the kid in 4th grade that blew his homework to play Big Nate Island on its release day, diss going outside on a hot Spring day to play Mythology Island, and beg my Grandma to buy me membership so I could obtain the limited edition golden renegade robot store item. I’m just not that kid anymore, and sadly, I got what I wanted, but what the young Spencer wanted, not the older Spencer. Does that make sense? At all? No? Okay.
Thank you for the privilege, Slanted Fish. HP, Sam, UIPE, Fishy, Blake, BT, Slip, and SD… thank you for being my buddy pal amigos who embraced my love for circles, and becoming my part time therapists. I won’t be on Discord anymore, nor the comment section. But, I plan on keeping contact with the staff of the PHB, and I’ll still be lurking this place. So, I’ll still be speaking with them, they’re my buddy pal amigos after all, and I’ll be happy to be in the Poppies, along with voicing Cobalt in Orb Legend. Because well, sometimes in order to move forward, you have to look back.
But, what’s next for me? Well, with the help of a buddy pal amigo, I will be attempting to make rap music. So, that’s pretty gnarly.
Guess what else? It’s been a week since the little PHB 24 million hits contest, and I promised to announce the winners. My co-author UiPE will be getting the accounts to the winners, so if you won, stay tuned. Anyway, here they are:
