DAL Alumni?
« on: January 28, 2014, 04:34:14 PM »
Well, I don't wonder whether anyone posts here -- this is self-obvious when one presses the "show unread posts since your last visits" button -- but I do wonder, do any DAL alumni still visit these forums? If you do, where are you now? How far have you gone? Has DAL influenced you in any way?

I am a programmer now, the only one in a fairly promising startup, concentrating on web technologies -- javascript, html5, and the like. Alas, not a published writer. I've joined another website,, where I occasionally post stories and less occasionally critique other people's stories, under the username carbonCore. DAL was the thing that got me writing in the first place, for which I am very thankful. It has given me a way to release all the various darknesses that had plagued me at times -- without that initial push, without DudeMan dragging me over here, and without me getting lost in Gaian, I don't know if I'd be writing as I am today. So, from my heart: thank you, Xorlak, and thank you, everyone who had made DAL the experience that it was. I don't know where you all are now, but I know that in my memory, you will remain forever.

the here we are now judgment day

cross the threshold have no dread
lift the sheet back in this way.
here is little Effie’s head
whose brains are made of gingerbread

Nice. I'm still doing web development as well, at the same job I started halfway through DAL. Still doing comics and drawing (more than ever!) I did try writing a bit post-DAL, but discovered I didn't really like it, so my main medium has been comics ever since. Kiiiinda want to start poking at game development again, but haven't had any time at all in between drawing. Maaaaaybe after I finish Crimson Flag. ;)
