It cannot recollect
When it began, or if there was
A time when it was not.
It has no future but itself,
Its infinite realms contain
Its past, enlightened to perceive
New periods of pain.
- Emily Dickinson
Everything's gone except for the art and coding because those should be fine. Nothing inappropriate or too serious about those.
I don't actually know how I feel about all of this at the moment. I got Voice when I was having a bit of a hard time in real life dealing with certain things. Voice provided me an outlet where I could just immerse myself in her world and for a few moments, forget about everything else. I'll never forget that.
Voice was a lot of firsts for me. I learnt how to properly code from this page, for this page. Sure, there are tons of mistakes in my coding. I've avoid fixing because them they mean something; they're a progression of me on neo. I discovered my love for coding here.
I learnt to focus on my writing because that's what I enjoy most and the greatest thing about this page was that I never stopped learning from it. I wrote and rewrote the story countless times and each was better than the last because I knew more and understood more. I created a world that I love filled with characters that I enjoyed bringing to life. There was Noah, Darren, Eve, Richard, Li and the Lyras and each one of them represented something different. Voice is and always will be my favourite because I've put so much of myself in her. This was a story about the importance of being heard, of being silenced no longer. It's a shame that it will be silenced forever. On neo anyway.
I will still develop this story and eventually, I will hopefully figure out a way to get parts of it here again. But for now, I'm keeping quiet because I don't want to lose Voice or risk my other pets. It's been a great ride but I have no intention of letting it end here. I will figure something out eventually. Wait for me.
