Dear readers, I’d like to introduce you to someone very special to me. This is my BEST FRAAAAND, ReAnna.
I’ve known this hottie-boom-a-lottie since 3rd grade. We’re both weird. We both like videogames. Someday we will probably marry each other, but that’s on the DL. Anyway, I’m going to get all sentimental and post a bunch of pictures of us growing up BEFORE I show you one of my favorite geek-a-leek conversations we’ve ever had.
ReAnna and I have a rich history of playing through some of my favorite videogames together. She was my guide girl for Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, my wing-woman and fellow adventurer in Final Fantasy IX, my favorite person to harvest crops in Harvest Moon with, and we were pansies-in-crime while blasting through zombies in the Resident Evil series. (I could go on and mention the random videogame bloopers we created, our all-day binges with Baldur’s Gate and our all-night binges with Echo Night…but we would be here all day.)
Not only did we game together, we also spent countless hours watching Dragon Ball Z and other anime. We wrote pages upon pages of Final Fantasy IX/Dragon Ball Z crossover fan fiction. And last, but certainly not least, we both fell in love with Nick Carter and wanted his children by the time we were 13.
Unfortunately she currently resides in another state (something I’m desperately trying to amend) but that doesn’t mean we have trouble keeping the spark alive, if you nah’msayin. ;D
