Hello there again! First off, I must apologize for being away for so long. Ever since March, my activity dropped, and since August I wasn't on dA at all until recently. Some people haven't got to talk to me for months.. I am deeply sorry for this. I hope I can finally get back now - it's not going to make my absence any better, but hopefully it will prevent it from being any worse!
Also, to everyone who was looking forwards to the Sale's Diary, story, I'm sorry too. The entire story was supposed to based on periodically releasing small bits and pieces, but I'm not ready for that yet, unfortunately. I'm not throwing his story away, as it is too important for that, but it's definitely getting a delay and most likely a major change of the format it will be told in. I would still like to keep it a diary, but it might not be possible. We'll see.
Now to actually get to the reason I am writing this journal: In the next few days, I am going to change my name. You might be asking, why? My current name is quite iconic, and everyone knows it well. I have had it for almost two decades too, so why would I want to change it?
Well, that's the very problem. I adopted the nickname Commander Keen when I was very young and continued to use it whenever it was not taken by anyone else, which was most of the time - after all, the majority of the internet userbase has either missed it or is too young to really know it. But really, it's the long time for which I held to the nickname that made me do the decision. You see, as a person I have changed completely since I had chosen the name, but the name itself is still the same as it was all this time. It no longer represents me as it used to, and I no longer feel connected to it.
has drawn a new dragon character for me, and he turned out to mean a lot to me. If you have ever seen my icon, yes, that is him. She also gave him a name, and I felt it to be appropriate to call myself by that name, as it represents me wonderfully. Much better than Commander Keen, that is sure. I love seeing the name and knowing it's me who is hiding behind it. That name is Rahjital
Why am I telling you about all of this? To make sure you will all be ready for it, and perhaps to help you understand. I don't want to confuse anybody when I make the change or to bring anyone any other problems. I hope this will be fine with every one of you!
I think it's all for today. Should you have any question, feel free to ask! I'd be delighted to see any.
