It’s RobSp1derp1g again! But then again, who else could it be? It’s my blog! IT’S MY FREAKING BLOG, DAMN IT! *realizes what he wrote* Sorry about that…
As some of you may know, before I joined the iCarly fandom, I was (and I guess I still am) an Advanceshipper. Now, for those who don’t know what it is, it’s AshxMay from Pokémon. (I think I just lost some of my readers because of that…) Anyhow, I was part of a forum named AdvanceShipping Inc. Which was the gathering point for over 200 people. On a side note, the forum went online one year before the Seddie kiss, but there is no relation.
Anyway, on those 200 people, there were 6 who stood out. We called ourselves “Da Gang”. We were:
Damon, Melissa, Allison, Natalie, Steven and me. All of them were super sweet people, except for Natalie. She was always, and I mean ALWAYS on the lookout for an opportunity to bring Steven down.
They liked arguing with each other about who was the coolest member of the forum. And when they were unable to reach a consensus, they would often throw bricks at each other (this was an Internet forum, no real bricks were harmed.)
We had a thread in which we lived in a house and Steven seemed to have a weird desire to kiss Natalie, but all in the name of a good and fun time. (Does he remind you of anyone? ‘You want to kiss me?’ Exactly.)
As with all forums, we started a Ship Between Members thread. That thread was possibly the most visited thread and the one with the most posts. We called NataliexSteven BrickShipping. I remember Natalie’s exact words upon reading about BrickShipping: “WTF??” She said that it would never happen and Steven agreed, so we renamed it CrackBrickShipping, CBS for short.
We would hold conferences on MSN, play games with each others, but basically. have a good time.
As with all relationships between people, some feelings appeared. I know Steven and Allison tried to get romantically involved (I remember the Little Mermaid, Steven!) but they had no luck.
In every group conversation we had, there was always someone (mostly me and Damon) who would randomly shout “CBS!!” or “CrackBrickShipping!!” because we know that Steven would freak out, and it was fun to do that, it really was!
When I joined the iCarly fandom, I pretty much lost contact with them, which was my fault and I wish I could undo that. But somehow, the universe has a way of course correcting, and I recently found out that my good friends, Natalie and Steven are dating. Tomorrow is their 7-month anniversary. And I can say that I am proud that there was one time, when I randomly shouted “CBS”.
You see, my dear readers, these two friends of mine have unique skills. Steven is quite good at pixel art, and Natalie is an amazing writer. I had a project back on Advanceshipping Inc. and they were two of the only 20 people who dared to say, “This is a good thing, Rob! Keep doing it!” And it is because of them, that I am here today. Thank you Nat and Steve!! A truly heartfelt thank you!
