I was just remembering one of my first forum experiences four years ago, on a now-dead forum. We could request name changes anytime we wanted if we PM'd an admin. I had picked a name that at first was an interesting word, but later proved to be very embarrassing for me to bear. So I asked to have my name changed, but they wouldn't do it. I guess they thought it was a good name for me, although I thought differently. To this day, seeing that word still makes me blush. And I do remember what it was, but I'd rather not share it. It's too humiliating.
So, I decided to add Soul and Maka (from Soul Eater) to the game, and they both ended up becoming friends with each other first out of all fifty residents (well, at least, Soul was Maka's first friend), and only a few hours later, I witnessed them becoming best friends during a random conversation of theirs. Coincidence? I think not.
