Cricket is literally the best and I couldn't ask for anything more in a friend.
She is going through a lot and is still so patient and cool. I dont think we have ever had someone as CHAD as Cricket is and all around she is the best.
The day will come when the flames that heat the HOTDISHES will be reignited, the day the GOD OF HELLFIRE returns.
Always has something fun to talk about, and she always makes those bad days so much better.
We shall drink milk as a toast to you Crick
@Cricket, you'll be missed. I hope you can sort out whatever's going on IRL with you, but know that if you ever need a place of respite from the shit thats going on, I'll always be here; we all will always be here for you.
I've been around with cricket since she joined the server, we both were pretty new, and between all the jokes and fun we had, I genuinely found her as someone very interesting to be around with. I really think the server has lost a part of its personality with her gone.
She will always be alive in our hearts.
And luckily irl
Welp. I miss Cricky even worse now.
Who knew that Ford could do feelings stuff?
This makes me so sad. I don't want to believe it. Cricket is the best and nobody made me laugh as hard as she did on Discord. I'm still holding out hope this is some Tom Sawyer thing and she wants to pop out casually as everyone is speaking her eulogy and prasing her.
I don't really need to go on about Cricket too much as I think everyone already knows how highly I thought of her and I would assume that she knows that as well.
I will just say I feel a great sense of loss and of all the daughters I have encountered in my travels, she was the most…
With blackest crepe this day is clad
We’ve lost the bug who was most CHAD.
A friend is gone from our Discord
Snark gone silent here on this board.
She was the one, we all know well,
Who tricked the newbies into hell.
Oh, bugs live briefly, yes, quite right.
And Cricket needs no lame white knight.
She was as good as a Marauder
A wholesome and protected daughter.
I miss her thorax, miss her mandible,
Like Chris and Pug, but more infrangible.
I held for her the most affection
(And she loved—well, her own reflection)
Perhaps I’ll hop in my Toyota
I’ll take a trip to North Dakota.
Her exile seems to me a mockery!
I’ll find her! (Does this sound too stalker-y?)
Moved by, drawn by, formicophilia,
Into the snow storm I go, really, yeah.
There in the land of milk and cheese whey
I’ll find our site’s own bichon frise.
I’ll zoom and risk a speeding ticket.
Find and rescue our Cricket.
I was possessed by grief, okay?
Note to self: In your next life, build up a forum persona that's easier to recognize from behind.
Well, I know what Ford's next profile picture will be.
Is it a cowboy-appropriate hoop skirt or genuine canonical elven width? I'll never tell.
I had a moment of staring, blinking at the screen.
I knew the crying dragon might have been a touch too far.
This picture makes me want to cry like miz's dragon
I was very fond of both.
And Cricket is without a doubt the life of the party here at CYS, the discord server is fucking dead now lmao XD
Wouldn't be a proper appreciation thread without making the necessary sacrifices.
I hadn't found the time to sit down and write a long reply to this. Honestly I'm still feeling pretty bummed out about this whole business.
Cricket is the person I like the most on the site, period. She's smart, funny, a good writer and reviewer, and I like to think that she and I think alike on many issues and share opinions on several subjects. I told her in a PM that I consider "the closest to a friend that someone on the internet can be" but I realize now that's not true. In fact, I like Cricket a lot more than many of the people I call friends irl.
All in all, I really can't help but repeat what has already been said, which is just further proof of how much everyone likes Cricket. It's honestly gonna be sad not to wake up to Cricket ranting about her bad eating habits in Scullery or taunting some poor dumb noob who stumbled upon the server. But ultimately I'm at least glad that we know what's going on her and that she's alright, as opposed to simply vanishing one day.
I'll miss her, but I keep hope that she'll come back to us someday.
Way ahead of you, miz.
Think I got my profile just right now.
The wholesomeness I see here makes me sad smile. Cricket is the best in the west. Feels bad, man.
Long live the chad.
I can still recall
All the good times that we had
Back on C-Y-S, you were my daughter
I was your your dad
You loved all of my stories
And I loved your wholesome toasts
But I’d ban the whole damn site
For just one more of your posts
But I’ll wait when you’re free
My dearest C
My supreme devotee
We used to mock the fags and fucktards
While trolling on the site
And every single praise you gave me
Was a sheer delight
You’re a shining pearl
You wholesome girl
Best daughter in the world
Didn't know they had made an anime about it.
Lol, that really is perfect.
I took a peek in just to see how you guys have been doing while I'm stuck at home because of the virus thing, and seeing this is quite disheartening. Without Cricket, an integral piece of the community is missing. I remember when she belted out a Czech song directly into my eardrums because she had forgot her mic on in the music chat. I still listen to that song sometimes, and I improved the first two lines with the help of Google Translate my superior intellect:
Darmo sa ty trápíš, muj milý kriketcku;
a nosím já tebe, a nosím v srdécku.
Take care lil grillo, and may you find many hotdishes on your way.
