Although for me it’s only been like 2 - 2 1/2 years because of my basically 3 year long break… However, since I originally joined the server on July 12, 2015 (yes I know I’m 2 days late making this :V) I’m marking this as my 5 years on Knockturn Anniversary! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to make this a long, sappy post or just a short and quick post so I’m just going to ramble until I reach a point where I should stop lol (I ramble a lot anyways so I feel that my anniversary post should reflect that). SO! When I joined I was just little 11 year old Emma, ew I was so little and probably very annoying (but also shy… can someone be very annoying but also shy at the same time? Who knows but I know I was). While I didn’t make lots of friends with people more my age, I did have some AMAZING friends who were a few years older than me. So while they were close friends of mine, I also looked up to them as mentors you could say. Back in my earlier days, I was moderator (even before helper position existed :PPP), and professor twice (yet I’ll admit I wasn’t the best because I had to resign shortly after because as a little 12/13 year old, you can’t really decide how your schedule works). I loved the community so so much and every player was near and dear to my heart . But later in 2017, I had to take a long… long break due to some very personal things/poor choices of mine. What was I suppose to do without all of my friends that I had met throughout my time on Knockturn? I felt so lost but as time went on, I learned to grow and move on from the part of my life that was very attached to the Knockturn community of 2016/2017. About 3 years of maturing later, I was able to come back to Knockturn. I was extremely excited to come back and see my old friends again and blah blah blah. But when I actually did come back… the server wasn’t exactly what I had remembered. Basically everyone on the server was someone I had never seen so I felt very out of place and was worried that I wouldn’t stick around for long since it seemed like everyone had their friends already. (cmon emma don’t get emotional now smh). However, I stuck through it and thankfully, because of how nice and lovely this whole new community was, I’ve made absolutely the greatest friends I could ever imagine. I was quickly adopted by Winter Rose and through her met my sister from another mister (irl, not in-game… hai Dani :P) and closest friend ever, Becky Delacour. There aren’t good enough words to express truly how much I care and love Becky. She’s been there through every up and down I’ve had… even if I was being a bit over-dramatic lol. As time went on, I met all of my friends I have now and grew closer to this community as a whole. These people made it so much easier to feel a sense of belonging to the server again and I’ve grown to love everyone so much that it’s so easy to come back day after day, seeing all of these friendly faces and feeling happy with my life again. So for that, I want to thank the people who make me smile every single day, so thank you Dani (daniela), Becky (sestr), Crystal (ladi dadi), Winter, James Auditore, Ash, Ava, Saaniya, Lilly (basically my twin), Ryder, Smile, Will (Willy Will), Sergio (Sergi :>), Soul, Haley, Bass, Castor, Emily, Smol, and honestly every person who I’ve ever spoken a word to because y’all are just so so great. (If I didn’t list your name specifically, I’m sorry but just know I still luv ya ). Oml this post is so long so I think I’ll finish it here with this sappy Disney quote (would this truly be an Emma post if Disney wasn’t somehow involved in it? I don’t think so)… “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” (Winnie the Pooh). I do sincerely hope that I will never have to say goodbye to the Knockturn community again because like the quote says, I am extremely lucky to have such amazing friends that would make it practically impossible to do so. So with that, I love y’all so much and on to 6 years next year! Edit: I forgot Crystal wanted me to write this so ahem “yall been stuck with me for 5 years. sorry not sorry”.
