...There was a web site.
It wasn't your ordinary run-of-the-mill web site.
It was a friendly, inviting, sometimes fiery, most time happy web site.
It was run by a bunch of happy-go-lucky young people who were at one time obsessed with the collecting of rare animals... of fiction, mind you, but still...
They created avatars for themselves, and parried forth into the web seeking these creatures. Once caught and trained, they would expound about their strengths, agilities, and companionship. Sometimes, they would even merge with them, creating new avatars and Morphs.
These were strange kids... and they tended to try and steal these critters too!
But as they grew, and as time went, they drifted off to other concerns - some found robots (and/or their pilots), some found space westerns (and/or their angsty heroes), and some just went off
sometimes the deep end, sometimes off each other. It was rather explosive for a while. But in one form or the other, they stayed at this web site and continued to chat, gossip, display their artistic endeavors, and meander. But meandering also caused many to finally drift away, until all that was left was the shell of this once hallowed hall of a community, and one lone yoyo to sweep it up once in a while.
Such is the current life of TRHQ2.
The site is still up. I am practically the only one there right now, keeping it clean and functional, dusting its file and keeping the vermin and silverfish at bay. I am its custodian, curator and cataloger. I welcome any and all to come and visit, maybe even post and chat a bit. It would be nice to see some of the old faces pop in from time-to-time, or even some newer ones who never found the place the first time around, or worse, weren't even BORN yet, seeing the age it has become.
This place that you currently find yourself gawking at is new, and those who left never saw it the repository of artwork established here on dA, in the hope that some of our members from the past would like to hold their artistic creations here. You see, one of the problems with the old ezBoard system had was that when forums would reach a certain amount of post, the earliest of them would fall off the edge of the storage world and vanish into oblivion (kind of like how the BBC thought it was a great idea to reuse old video tape by wiping the old programs off them, hence the reason why the better part of Doctor Who's early history is gone
That is why there are so few pics here, and so little life. It needs to be fed from its source, namely TRHQ2. So for those who love to delve into the many years of PokéFiends, or anything else for that matter, seeing that we are an open forum for anything Anime or Manga related, stop on by and post something ANYTHING!
The door is always open the history is there to be read TRHQ2 is waiting to blast off again. Just give the word!
