IGN: Piercing Arrow & SleepySupports
Our friendship began over TalonRO, in Dewata, I was watching as two girls picked on Arrow’s fashion choices in town. This is the part, you might think I stood up for the man being bullied for choosing poor color schemes and even worse costumes. However, you would be wrong. I chimed in, offering my own sassy critique to the barrage of fashion insults. What can I say? It’s how I show my love.
It took a couple months for us to really start playing together, even though we were in the same guild. It wasn’t until Seals for Dummies took off and we gathered into a friend group that did the old seals every time we got together. That is where our friendship really blossomed. Then Iduna came, removing seals and we started doing small party ETs being able to complete the tower with only 2-6 people. It might sound like to some like we are serious players that like to keep to ourselves, until they join our voice chat and they hear the uncontrollable laughter and joy we produce when we are together, along with the others in our guild. How often we are just testing things out and laughing at one another for the mistakes we make...or the surplus of one particular person’s ping. Our goofiness has become a cornerstone of the guild we are in, Sempiternality, and I am happy to say that many others get to enjoy that with us.
When Covid hit, Arrow disappeared for 5...whole...months! Of course, I checked on him every week or so to see if he would respond, but he didn’t even have access to discord. The culture of Sempi was still there, but wasn’t quite the same without his presence for me and I know others felt the same. When he did come back, it was like he never left. Everything went back to how it was, except the additional built up roasting he had missed out on during his 5 month hiatus.
Once Arrow came back, we spent even more time together doing more ridiculous attempts at different instances, killing MVPs, or mobbing Thor depending on the mood. Covid has been rough for both of us, and we began sharing more deep stories with one another about ourselves and getting on true best friend levels with one another. I am happy to know that, even through all my bullying, I know I have a solid friend in Arrow. Thank you, Arrow, for ~That Sempiternal Healing~.
---Enter Thor 3---
Arrow: Why did you want to do Thor 3, and why Glacial Hearts and Frozen Roses?
Sleepy: Arrow, you are my best friend. In my worst times, my heart goes cold and I just want to freeze out the world. However, you are there for me filled with warmth and help thaw me out back to reality. I figured this would fit our friendship best. Happy Valentine’s Day Bud.
