Spook Cliff Zone, Act 1: Former Writing Hub

 [NP: N/A]

One of the lads in my Skype group wanted me to talk about him. To do that, I would have to contextualize some things first. 

I used to be part of a Homestar Runner fan community. It was known as the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki. It prospered for quite a while, and I saw some people's writing and was astonished by it. Unfortunately, relevance to the source material we were fans of had been dubious in a lot of the projects. One bloke, by the name of Super Sam, helped a handful of people and myself migrate into the Wiki User Wiki. At the time, it had been 2007. Basically, the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki admins, notably Its Dot Com, wanted to remake the site and had put things on a Gravy Boat which were memorable to the Wiki's culture. Unfortunately, the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki took a long while to regenerate, and I'm not sure it actually did.

In the interim, I decided to take my writing talents to the Wiki User Wiki. This is where I met a majority of the people I worked with on various collaborations. One of these people was known as Strong Intelligent. He used to have beef with me, and it was rather rational. I had decided to fight back against people who were basically throwing a different person I fell in love with, who was at the time known as Pope Bellstrom III, into a depression spiral by demoralizing him to never write again. They did this under the pretense of homage to Mystery Science Theatre 3000, and specifically targeted Pope Bellstrom III and Lucian (a bloke who went by many names for a while - he had been known as Ryan Bluefox for the longest time, however). Their own work was just as "bad," if not worse, so I decided to teach the MST3K ripoff riffers a lesson by trying to make them humble. I doubt it worked. 

Nevertheless, I had come into altercation with Strong Intelligent over my riffs basically becoming just me being a sourpuss. He wasn't wrong, I realized, and I apologized to him for my behaviour. I wasn't sure what else to really do on the Wiki User Wiki, but as of 2013 I decided to join a Skype group. It was there that I managed to get along with him.
