The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger took the long way around Old Town, south through Tanner Circle and down Bulwarks, across […]

Three! Three years! (ah ah ah ah)

Three years ago today I married my best friend.

We’ve known each other since we were both in High School, though we didn’t start a romantic relationship until five or six years into our friendship. Known affectionately as Spaceship Husband (since he is, in fact, a rocket scientist), he is my other half, and I am lucky to have met him and thankful to have married him.

While I can’t credit him for video games – I’m the one that got him playing WoW – I absolutely love that we have this hobby together even if we play it in very different ways.

SSH is a fantastic tank, a fellow Paladin, a lot of fun to hang out with, and the only person I’ve ever successfully leveled a character in tandem with (Aely and his Paladin, when WotLK started). And while I’m learning how to tank with Annie Mae, and he’s talking about rolling a healer class someday, it’s really fun to be an endgame Tank/Healer duo. We’ve developed pretty good coordination thanks to playing in the same room and not needing Ventrilo to communicate, not to mention grouping together for the last 5 years in WoW, and in other games before this one.

And though he’s not really particularly interested in RP, he does occasionally come hang out or make an IC offhand remark. He’s very supportive of my writing and quite tolerant of my ability to sit around for hours in game “without doing anything.”

So here’s to our first three awesome years. I can’t wait to see what the future has for us.

The title of this post is an old joke that started in Karazhan, back when each raid member had to individually loot their Badges of Justice, since they were items and not currency. At some point, we started counting out how many badges everyone should have picked up, to avoid the inevitable “Crap! I’m two badges short and the bosses all despawned!”… which lead to SSH doing a Count von Count impression in vent after boss fights.  Three!  Three Badges! AH Ah ah ah ah…

  2. Grats to you!!!

    For some reason I always thought he was Spaceship Husband because he played a Space Goat.

  3. Congrats!!

    My hubby have much the same dynamic, except I’m the tank and he’s the healer. Apart, we’re ok. Together, ve are unstoppable!

    Here’s to many more happy years together! :D

  4. Congrats!
    It’s good to hear news like this, when if you pay attention to the news and media in general it’s story after story about divorce rates, dysfunctional families, etc. This reinforces my personal belief that these relationships CAN work when they start out between people who are genuine friends (with everything that entails).

  5. Grats!

    We also had to do the running total thing in Kara, but we didn’t have the clever “Count” thing going on. :)

  6. @Maer – though he does have a Spacegoat (his warrior), that character is kind of a 4th string alt. His main, like mine now, is a human pally :D

  7. Thanks for all the <3 folks! Today's been kind of a crummy day, but hopefully tonight will be better ;)

  8. Congrats to you!

    While my hubby is a gamer, he’s not much of a WoW player. He hated raiding, while I loved it.

    But we still play in the same room!

  9. Congratulations on three years of marriage!

  10. Happy anniversary.
