Hello there, thanks a lot for clicking this thread, I'm Hayley Kenway, or Edward Kenway, or Omega, really, I'm known by a lot of different aliases, so just call me Ed. I'd like to begin by stating my sincerest gratitude to all of you for carrying me to where I am today, as a member of the News Group on a wonderful site full of wonderful people (not as wonderful as me though). So, do you really need the life story again? I'll give you the TL;DR version, I suppose. I'm Vincent, been here for 3 years, not all of it perfect but most of it unforgettable. At the moment, I'm 13, going on 14 in a few days (July 6th to be exact). I recently graduated my catholic schooling institute, and am going to a public high school, with the hopes of transferring next year to a school more aligned with my interests. And yes, I am an atheist. I'm the youngest staff member at the moment, and am the youngest person to receive Legendary, to my knowledge. I'm a fan of a wealth of gaming franchises, and if I listed them all here, you'd be sitting here til' my fourth anniversary. I currently own an Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and Gaming PC, with the plans to purchase some sort of Nintendo product soon. As can be seen, I'm what you would call a 'Pokemon gamer', I like to catch and collect 'em all. Recently I've begun to take interest in films and I'm a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes movies, especially Dawn and Rise. I'm also a big fan of comic book movies, specifically Batman and Spider-Man. I'm also interested in books quite a bit, the full nerd package, and I love Eleanor & Park, but by next year, I'm sure I'll have found some new book to obsess over. I'll keep this short, but most of you know my origins. I started out as SpartanKIL, became Omega, went through some troubles, and like a phoenix, Edward Kenway rose from the ashes and became as good a positive influence as he could. However, during my time in News Group, I made the decision to leave, becoming Legendary for a month (lol) which I get teased about pretty often. THEN I CAME BACK. I grovelled on my knees in front of Director, and he saw pity on me and gave me my job back. I still need a raise though. Family life, you ask? Well, I have parents, as does everyone, and two sisters, whom I don't interact with much. Alongside these people, I live with my grandfather, who recently came out of the hospital, so that's good, it's nice to see him these days. You may remember I mentioned living with an aunt and uncle whom I rarely saw, well err... Not exactly anymore. Last September, just a few days before the launch of Destiny, which I eagerly awaited, my Uncle passed away. Just a few weeks ago, my Aunt had also left to go pursue new ventures in life, putting it nicely. I miss him a lot, he was really the driving passion for my nerdy interests, so losing him felt a lot like losing a part of me. But, on the positive side of things, my dad left the hospital, and he's doing okay, so... There's that. Now, this may seem a bit sappy, but I want to take a moment to acknowledge my best of friends on here. These are some truly amazing people who have shined quite a bright light in my life that won't go away. Be aware, these are just the best of the best, so fret not if you aren't on here. I love everyone, as I've said, but I have to take a minute to acknowledge those I feel have gone out of their way for me. Yoshi1176 - Hey man, you're a really great friend toward me, and I wanted to acknowledge you first for it. There have been friends, many of them, despite your disbelief. But you have stood out quite a bit as that one dude who really has fun being around me. And in the end, that's my only goal, to make sure everyone around me has a bit of fun. If I can't light up people's lives, then I'm wasting my own. Yang Xiao Long - Yaaaaang, my British friend that I tell everyone I know about to seem cooler. Destiny has been a huge part of my daily routine and you've been there for a lot of my progression through the game. You were there when I got my G-Horn, you were there when I first dared to fight Crota, and the countless times that I dared to fight him after. Thanks so much for tolerating my American-ness. Honorable mention to Ben too! Drizzy_Dan - Hey softie, how about letting me get that Beat-A-Mod award? You're one of the friendliest people I know, and you've been there since Day One, even if we weren't always tighter than the jeans on a fat girl. You're a fun guy to be around, so be proud of that. Can't hold all that aggression inside you for long, D_D. Self Destruct - You are arrogant, talented, and devilishly handsome, which somehow makes for just the right combination for a good friend. Plus, you love Gears of War, so you're automatically amazing! Thanks for the numerous nights of fun, and the countless deep voiced, "Wut"s. They made me chuckle. Jack of Harts - The art dude, you make my art, what more can I say? You even made the art for this post, which I thank you for. Even though you were incompetent at making Weekly News Wrap-Up banners, you are still a funny guy and an amazing friend. Let's go kick Crota's arse. We can bring Yang along. Halo5 Follower - Lewis :3 My aussie friend, despite not being around for playdates much, you're a really nice guy. Like really really nice, tone it down a bit mate. I'm being sarcastic obviously, you're a really good guy and I cannot wait for the Forum PAX 2016 Trip so we can meet up and make fun of Jack. Until then, you're in my heart. ESO is coming, I promise. AhhOldWoman - Newbie, greenie, FNG, whatever they're calling you folks these days. Even with the dry spout in terms of new blood, you've shown through as a really fun fantastic guy (or woman heh). I look forward to more fun gamenights on Halo. Bnus - Bnus, how's the YouTube page going? Heh, I'm yanking your chain, you've done a lot in your position to make the site feel awesome, and you're a fantastic friend. Even though you're new, and you still have a lot to learn, you've certainly taught me a few things. You're also the best demonstration on how to accidentally have a child I've ever seen, so good on ya. Maybe next time we're in the Florida area together, we can meet, talk gaming, etc. I'll see ya around. #TARGETACQUIRED Azaxx - Heya, Azaxx. The other Aussie in the equation. So, what have you done to land a spot on here. To be completely honest, I have no damn clue. You're a good guy, you love Destiny, and you've never done wrong by me. I suppose that's enough, but maybe there's more I don't realize. Anyways, stay classy man. Let's raid some time. We'll drag Yang and Jack along. Fishy - Hey Fishy, how are ya? Good to hear. Listen, you're a fantastic person, and you've always been a really fun guy to play Xbox with. Continue to improve yourself and sharpen your abilities. Your talents as a game night host are unparalleled, I'd like to see you continue to strive for the goals that are so easily achievable with your skillset. I'll see ya on GTA, mate. GermanShepherdD - Hey GSD, I'm sure you have no clue who I am besides my violent torrents and rages on GTA V, but thanks for the fun nights and thanks for being a cool mod. And also changing my name like 70 times! Ruff ruff! Zelda - The Legend of Link herself, you're probably the coolest chick I've met on this site. You actually play Destiny quite decently and made for a few fun shoutbox conversations. I hope to see you around more here and on Destiny, because I'd like to play a few matches of Trials with you and test your 'skill' there. Unease P34nut - Hey nutterbutter, you're welcome for that dare that got you where you are. I hope to see a few more articles from you before you fully disappear. Thanks for being a fun gent to hang out with and a cool guy. I'll crush yer nuts, mate. RedStarRocket91 - Best I saved this one for last. This is probably going to be long, gents, so prepare yourself. Red... Go grab some popcorn, I suppose. You've been here longer than I have, and have taught me quite a few things that still benefit me today. Your continued support inspired me to reach where I am and hone my writing skills allowing me to carve my future into history. I hope to someday achieve a success that will not make me famous, or my works, but rather inspire others to press on and create a better world. That's how you truly live forever. You've also taught me that my mistakes don't make me the person I am, but rather how I do my best to prevent those mistakes from ever happening again. Denying their existence does nothing to ensure perfection, rather, you've given yourself the compass as to how to correct it and sculpt the perfect character. Yes, I know not all of that was your lessons, despite their worth, but I felt it was important to convey that your words helped me reach these conclusions. I've been here three years, and it's been a hell of a ride. I wouldn't change it for the world. Thanks Red, I wouldn't still be here if it weren't for you. I raise my glass to you, you ginger-haired Scottish legend, you. So... Three years? That's pretty amazing, in my opinion. But, none of it would be possible without you, yes you. You sitting behind a keyboard and mouse and TV screen. Whether your in the same state, or in entirely different countries, you matter. Now, this year, I lost a lot of my friends, with graduation. People that meant a lot to me, more than I could ever describe. I'm going to miss them, but in a lot of ways, you guys are the closest memories I have of them. Each of you has a distinct personality trait that seems to magically coincide with my own close friends and family. I don't know how, or why, this is, but it's that way for a reason. This site is more than some dudes playing Halo, it's a community. Whether we get noticed by big game companies or not doesn't matter. What matters is the unity we have, even when there are disagreements, and hate, we always thread back together. Even though many of my oldest friends are gone, in the darkness, I have found light in a few new ones. I wouldn't give it up for anything. A wise man once said, "Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one." And you have all certainly made me laugh. This isn't the end, rather, it's the closing page to a chapter in our long book. It's time to turn the page, we must continue to read on.
