I found out about GC from CoG originally. We were in an RP called Star Empires on Roblox, which was an incredibly relaxed RP with a similar premise to GC. It died, sadly, and CoG went and joined GC. One day he told me about it and I joined.

Well you see. I joined this shitty sci-fi RP on Roblox. I joined GC, Con pestered me a bit, I didn't like to post as fast as you fuckers used to and so I quit after two whole posts. Then I came back next thread after joining another shitty sci-fi RP and Des messaged me and said "Hey faggot you have potential. Stop being a giant queer and join GC!" So I dug up my old sheets, rejoined GC, fought Con, fought Nights, fought Nights more, become admin, fought CoG, did a lot more fighting CoG, fought House for the lulz because he is an autist faggot, fought CoG more and here I am.

Let him not laugh too gladly when the water runs through his fingers, nor stand too silent when the setting sun makes red the veld with fire. Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing, nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or a valley. For fear will rob him of all if he gives too much." - 'Cry, the Beloved Country', Alan Paton

Lets see, BACK WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I had been involved in a few sci-fi rp's on roblox. They all died in a horribly short time. During one of them however, there was comments about copy pasting from GC, this was my first encounter with GC crew, which I largely ignored. My bestest pal on roblox, max1029384756, had joined and told me more about it, didn't catch my interest at the time. Well some time later he came to me talking about this guy "Nights" which was causing some problems, So I go figure I might as well join up to find out whats going on that there tended to be a huff about it. This was my first mistake with GC, many more were soon to follow.
The Second mistake shortly after, would be hoping to get decent aid, this failed so horribly that to date, the ra-noth from GCv2 were never actually given starting techs or well, much aid in starting at all. The Kor-LaSolstice would like a word with the "Help" I got. Regardless, the third mistake I made, believing it would be easy to get going on the roleplay! Instead I was greeted by one of my characters being yoinked across the sector to some strange world where apparently indestructible stone statues with wire in them was trying to kill things. This was good compared to what was in store for me. Low and behold I miss twelve hours on a saturday and I'm nearly twenty pages behind. Plot was apparently resolved as well, Regardless I continue on with lurking around, managing to highjack my way into another plot, quite literally, stealing a small ship with nav data.
Now comes my fourth mistake, Trusting another player to help me get involved. In this case it happened to be Cog, who picked up the small vessel and brought my character, malrak, home. For a short bit after this, he remained the only person aware of my existence while I prepared to get things underway. This unfortunately backfired when he pulled out of contact with me as soon as possible. This in part led to my fifth mistake, using an FTL drive for the first time, right at the brink of a war starting, leading to EVERYONE SHOWING UP ON MY DOORSTEP. Now this normally wouldn't be to bad, if not for the brink of war thing going on withmekillingadiplomat it was kind of a god situation. At least, until things went sour.
Low and behold, one of the ships in orbit breaks from the standoff going on and decides to unload ALL THE PLASMA on my capital. This wouldn't of been even remotely bad if not for the SOLID BEAM OF FUCKING PLASMA going through my OXYGEN RICH ATMOSPHERE, the resulting lightbulb was in no way pleasant. With the ensuring chaos terrans lulwarp out of no where to aid in saving my race, the malsuth scramble everything and the two end up in a cold war of who can provide more aid which ended with the creation of Sa'Vora station...Which no one has any clue what the hell was built into that thing.
Suffice to say, my joining of GC and start with it can be summed up very simply in 5 simple mistakes 1. I joined GC because of chaos I heard about 2. I hoped there would be an easy start 3. I thought I could jump into ongoing plots 4. I TRUSTED SOMEONE 5. I Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal
My only comment? I'm still here and I refuse to be removed, I have as such, I have sovereign glued myself to everything and will totally not backstab everyone
