Some news [Sep. 13th, 2006|03:15 pm]
Alice Pane
So, darksonic and I are engaged. This is edited and reposted from my WoW guild forum.

To begin, technically we were already engaged. We decided not to announce it, except to a few friends. Mostly this was decided because we hadn’t become engaged in the normal way. For example: I asked him, we had no rings, I didn’t want to tell my family, etc. Some of you who have seen me may have noticed me wearing a temporary plain band; this has sufficed as my engagement ring for some time. I decided that when he gave me the lovely, sparkly ring, that would be the time to tell everyone in an official way.

Last night he doubly surprised me. Let me set the scene.

I am doing idle laps around the top balcony of Undercity after BWL (ignore game details if you are not a WoW player), just running in circles while I chat on teamspeak. Some level 10 troll rogue sends me a tell, "Excuse me, may I have a moment of your time?" I think, oh great, another person wanting gold, an instance run, or to join my guild. His name is Grimbaud. My fiance sits down next to me, seemingly waiting for me to finish my business and log out. I being typing, "Sorry, I have to go" to the strange troll fellow when suddenly the character kneels and says "Will you marry me?" A little confused, I erase my unsent tell and begin to respond with something sarcastic. This is when my fiance puts an open ring box on my keyboard.

My first thought was honestly "Who did he get to help with this?" It took him a while to convince me he was actually playing the game and not just borrowing someone's account to set the surprise up. Apparently he has been playing for over a month! Eventually I recovered from the shock and started crying. Eventually I stopped crying and said yes.

Not only do I have a gorgeous ring, but he has been secretly playing World of Warcraft! Never in my wildest dreams would I think that my two loves (gaming and him) would finally come together

Here is the ring if anyone wants to see it.

Wow - I gotta say, that's actually really romantic.
...Albeit, if it took him a month to get to level 10, then you gota take that troll under your wing, and show him how Graa does it :P
I mean, I don't think we can have you being engaged with someone who can't Powerlevel - it just won't do!

What class? I must find something neat, wrap it, and send it from Creedmore :D
