Hey guys, This is to all of my Secret Reapers and Vicitims who participated in this years Secret Reaper hosted by the lovely BETHENE!
As most of you know we have all been having a blast commenting on the thread while we await our Reaper to pay us a visit. (maybe some of us have been commenting more than others ) however, I wanted to take a moment to just comment on what partcipating in the Secret Reaper is really all about.
As I go back and read through all the posts over the past few weeks I noticed that a couple members commented on how worried they were about their vicitim liking their gift, or that maybe they cant spend as much as others and it got me to thinking. This is not about how much we spend. or whether or not our victim will love their gift though of course we all hope they do.... its really about keeping the Holiday spirit alive and giving us all a fun way to get to know each other better. I myself have gotten to know quite a few members better just through the Secret Reaper thread alone.
For me the Secret Reaper is not about getting Terra's coveted tombstone or whatever it is she made (though I do still have a couple of monkeys on hold ready to fly out on a moments notice as soon as her victim reveals his or herself, but I degress)...
no for me its about coming on here everyday and seeing all of the comments from everyone. Hearing how excited everyone is to shop for their vicitims or wonder about what they might be getting from their Reaper. Its about the joking and playing around with eachother on the thread while we all wait. Its about getting to come on this forum everday and talk with people about the best Hoiday in the entire world!!! The truth is I myself have been having so much fun just talking to you all and getting to know you all better that by the time my gift arrives ( and for God sakes I hope that is soon ) well by that time its really just icing on the cake.
I guess what I am trying to say i I think you guys on here are all truly kind and lovely little ghouls and I could not be happier to come to this place each day and play with you. What I get or do not get from my Reaper really doesnt matter because its not the gift that brings me to join the Secret Reaper each year but rather the Spirit it brings to this place. Bethene you do an incredible job with this every year and I want to thank you for giving us such a great way to keep ourselves entertained while we wait for the Big Day to arrive and an awesome way to get to know each other better
I LOVE YOU GHOULS!!!
