HAPPY BIRTHDAY!So the Refuge turns four years old today. It would have been off to pre-k in human child terms... And probably college in internet years. Four years is a long time for a small website to go without getting abandoned generally, and I think it's even (relatively) longer among fandoms, where people's attention spans tend to wander. Even more so for such a small fandom. So in the past four years, we've had a lot of people come and go. We -- by which I mean I -- almost killed the place once. (Oops!) We've had thousands of discussions on the forums and have picked more nits than I can even count when it comes to dissecting canon. And the stories, people. The beautiful, wonderful stories. But mostly this place, over the course of four years, has developed into exactly the kind of community, that TSB, Signpost, and I dreamed of. We wanted a home on the internet where we could have friends and goof off and enjoy singing, dancing, slashy newsboys. And we ended up with an even nicer, more talented and fantastic group than any of us could have anticipated. So here's to the past four years, and looking forward to four more to come. Oh, and here's that big birthday collage I promised. Since I know that's what you were looking for.
