Happy Tenth Birthday, MLA!

Happy Tenth Birthday, MLA!

Postby allegrita » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:14 am

Once upon a time, our founder Phoenix followed her dream of creating a forum where Moonlight fans could have a safe place to meet, talk about our beloved show, and create and enjoy stories, artwork, videos, and lots of other things related to Moonlight. We celebrate MLA's "birthday" on January 13th, because that's the day she created the forum, but it actually opened for new members on January 16th.

Believe it or not, that was ten years ago. TEN! :gasp:

We've changed a lot over the years, both as fans and as people. The fires of our passion for the show have faded to comfortable, glowing embers. Many of our old friends have moved on to other interests, and rarely visit anymore--and sadly, we've lost too many dear friends. :bmoon: But there are quite a few who pop in every so often to see what's up with our community, share news about our lives and our interests, reread a favorite fic or look for a new one, enjoy fan art and videos, look up location information or the name of Mick's favorite jeans... :melts:

Ten years on, we still support the people who created Moonlight and brought the characters to life. We follow their ongoing work while staying loyal to the special show that brought us all together. We care about one another, lift each other up when we're down, offer a virtual hand to hold when needed, exchange opinions on new TV shows and movies, and generally act the way friends do, who've been friends for a long time. :ghug:

Thank you, dear Moonlightaholics, for ten wonderful years together! And thanks to Trevor Munson, Ron Koslow, all the amazing writers and showrunners, the fabulous designers and their support crews, the amazing camera operators, editors, hair & makeup wizards, and especially the actors who gave us Mick, Josef, Beth, Coraline, and all the rest. They made a good team. :rose:

Happy Tenth Birthday, moonlightaholics.com! :celebrate:

Beautifully said, my dear Allegrita. Fire or embers, this is still a cozy place to come sit and warm our toes by the crystal fireplace. Thank you for keeping the door open for us.

Thank you Alle and all of the other moonlightaholics who continue to enjoy this space. This has been and always will be a very special space to me. This is and was my first and only fan forum. I still remember the very early days in the fandom, which felt a bit like being in the Wild West, and am very grateful that I landed here. I was so worried that this place would disappear after the shows cancellation. I had come to rely on having a connection with my beloved characters and the other fans who loved them as I did. The fact that this place is still here is a tribute to the mods and especially to Alle who has been such a staunch guardian. Thank you and god bless to you all :hearts:

Hard to believe 10 years ago. I am grateful that this place has stayed around, this fandom set off a creativity in me that I never could have imagined... i've been thinking about Moonlight lately, it may be time for me to do a rewatch. I do still enjoy looking up Moonlight actors on IMDB to see what is going on.

On another note, It's interesting when you see a show again after a while. I've recently been watching Antenna TV and seen shows I grew up with like Alice, Archie Bunker's Place. I've also been doing the complete Star Wars Saga starting with Phantom Menace and I'm up to Season 2 of The Clone Wars Animated series then complete the Prequels, watch Rebels Animated series before the new standalone movies then the originals then the sequels. It's a lot of work to be a Star Wars Fan. :batseyes:

I do love this little corner of the Moonlight world.

:hearts: Hello Moonlight friends. :heart:

I know that I was a latecomer to this lovely forum... brought here by lovely friends who continue to be just that. And I do fall into the category of visiting to catch up, and re-read... but goodness, the inspiration and friendship that flowed over these walls is still as wonderful as it ever was. :ghug:

Thank you, Alle, for keeping it alive, and for helping this lovely forum to continue being a place of comfort and 'home' for us. Ten years is a huge length of time in fast-moving world... and we so appreciate having somewhere to be unashamedly truthful of our love for our little show. :heart:

Happy 10 years Moonlightaholics!
