I originally found this place in 2013, and I just fell in love with the whole thing. Literally everything that I enjoy, I automatically jump to fanfiction for it, and having a whole community for Mindcrack fanfiction was unreal because it's such a specific, tight-knit group.
Anyway, I haven't really been around for like... years? I left for a lot of stupidly uncontrollable reasons. My life got super crazy and I wanted to pour my free time into other games like LoL and Overwatch. So yeah, it's been a while. I still watched the Mindcrackers, just usually for background noise or short fun stuff like the Mario Kart videos. (I <3 Dadbee)
But it turns out college gives me more free time than I thought, and so the timing worked out that just when I was looking for something to do, I saw that UHC was going on. Since then, I couldn't stop nostalgizing over Mindcrack and this community.
I kept my favorite SMS fic bookmarked for all of those 3+ years, so a few nights ago, at 2 AM, I went back and read it twice over. Sometimes you look back at something you thought was great years ago, and it turns out it didn't age well, but that didn't happen, and I felt just as giddy as I had the first time I read it. So I came back.
I'll probably just lurk. I don't recognize a lot of the names that I see, which is a good thing, because it means that the community grew, or at least cycled. I never posted anything before, and I doubt that I will now, but I just want to say: keep up the good work!
And for those curious, this is what I kept bookmarked: http://mindcracklove.dreamwidth.org/
