My gf is extremely ill / dying from some unknown cause. She has lost 90 pounds in the past seven months. Go ahead and do it without me -- we have half of the shit decided anyway. Being able to go to the hospital and care for my girlfriend is more important than sonic right now. I know that Sonic is more important than anything to most of you, but I simply have different priorities. I sincerely apologise and hope you will all understand my reasoning. ~Julia

Oh Ayla, I'm so sorry. Reading your post made me cry, I really hope they find out what's wrong with her... sad.png But am I one of the few people who have been waiting patiently for this? It just seems like everyone is too impatient. v.png

I'm also very sorry to hear that, Ayla. I wish there was some way to help other than saying "I'm so sorry." I was really expecting all of you to take part on it, but the issues you have at hand right now are top one priority.

I wish the best to the two of you.

Very sorry to hear about your situation, Ayla, hope things get better. Serious issues come first.

I don't really get why people were getting antsy about it anyway. Isn't it just a 'bragging rights' contest we have for fun?

Oh my that sounds awful D: I hope that everything works out for the best and that she gets better, that's an awful thing to happen.

Seriously your reason is totally legitimate. If someone you care about is dying, fuck Sonic

ouch... that one hit hard.
I kinda know that feeling of hoping that a loved one returns to health over a period of time, but seven months must be emotionally and spiritually brutal.

Wish you the best Ayla.

This sucks to hear. sad.png

Whenever someone is away/incommunicado for a while, I always hope it's something minor, but that hope was just totally crushed.

I echo everyone else's wellwishes.

I hope everything works out well for your girlfriend, Ayla.

On a lighter note, I can't wait to hear the results for this year. Looking at the hacks entered, they look really interesting, and I can't wait to see them.

To think something that severe was going on...

The contest results can very well wait, because that's not what's most important right now anyway. I wish you both the best.

Thank you for your co-operation with the current issues with the contest. At the moment, we only have a few more trophies to do and I am waiting for a judge to be available to help finalise our stuff.

I appreciate everyone's well wishes. I was honestly irked at first, but realised I had never made a post in this thread about it and that I should expect impatience from people that idolise Sonic =) My gf's state remains unchanged (although she got her meds refilled today, so she has been able to keep food down all day), but I'm certain things will be alright. It's not cancer, so I'm sure whatever it is can be fixed =)

Thanks for finishing things up for me, SOTI. This was weighing heavily on my mind, and I feel much relieved to know that it's over. I can try to do the podcast (I originally wasn't planning on it) as I do have something to officially announce during it.
