Nearly 4 years ago, I joined Giant Bomb in fear that someone was going to steal my username from comicvine, and today, I'm married to one of the funniest trolls of the interwebs, Rowr. Totally bizarrely, and absolutely unplanned, we were best friends for awhile and then one day it was kinda like "So... You wanna cross the ocean and meet my family?". And it was amazing. A lot of long distance, choppy skype calls, stretched-thin-budgets, but a whole lotta love. I'm sure community-duo and could vouch that over-sea's long distance isn't the easiest way to form a committed relationship, though the feelings are just as strong as if you're there in person.

No Caption Provided

So now that the big day has come and gone, Rowr's back in Aussieland, and I'm twiddling my thumbs waiting for the visa to go through, hoping this is the last sting of long distance. So just a shout-out to everyone who cheered us on and supported us from your computer screens. It's weird to think that without Giant Bomb, I never would've met the guy I'm married to now, so thank you all for existing!

<3 V

p.s. I'm also curious to know if there are any other GB couples out there?

You still need a visa after being wed? I thought marriage grants citizenship?

Happy to hear that Giant Bomb lead to something so important for the both of you, I hope you have a very happy future together. And I know there are/have been other GB couples apart from you/Rowr, and Wrighteous/DuskVamp, but I wouldn't want to call anyone out without their permission.

@Robinson: Nup, it's just a small step towards citizenship through spousal sponsoship. There's the paperwork, processing fee, 3 years of permanent residency, and then another evaluation to get citizenship

To think back to those forlorn Giant Bomb IRC days of old makes the fact that you both are married an even crazier thought.

Anyways best wishes to both of you.

That's absolutely fantastic, and I wish you both the best of luck. Although I doubt you'll need it; you both have excellent taste in websites.

I'm not a girl, but I'll merry the fuck out of you.

That is awfully high praise of his trollmanship. I've half a mind to seek out his work. The guy was the troll right I got the gender's correct?

edit: oh right. Where are my manners? Congrats!

edit again: Oh right, also:

Hey, congratz. That's a nice story.

And here I'd come to believe that it's impossible to find someone via the internet who isn't a complete train wreck.

I always knew that and I weren't the first or the last, and that there are a few other GB couples that are less... open about it to strangers on the internet than we are (understandably so), but it's always been comforting to know that we weren't alone, and you two gave us hope that we can actually make it work. Looking into the whole moving countries thing has been dispiriting for us, but we know that if it's real and worth the hassle, we'll make it happen, and you're living proof. It really is an inspiration, and it's crazy how small the world has become because of the internet. It's so weird seeing how seemingly disparate elements work together to introduce you to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with (circumstances of timing, interests, websites) but it's also beautiful, in a way. I know that Dusk has always appreciated the PMs she had with you on the subject, Virago. They've really helped us through the rough patches.

Anyway, one of these days, all of these GB couples will have to get together and have a quadruple date--hopefully that won't cause the universe to implode in on itself.

Congratulations and

Yes is it, Otacon. Yes it is.

Otacon should know love is a battlefield.
