    The great avatar heist of 2012.

    Just thinking about my avatar alone, cold and scared somewhere out in the world makes me feel sad

    Just keep dreaming of the best situation. Maybe the site devs have setup a private server, where our avatars can live, and frolic together through the post fields, in happiness. Away from the cruel public who only judge them on their looks, and abandon them when they start to feel old.

    That farm where all the Fables too inhuman to fit in amongst the mundies in New York live? Because I'd rather they were living in Fabletown.

    well this thread got a bit strange didn't it lol. i can't believe i haven't noticed the missing avatars until now if they've been missing for so long.

    I'm sure mine is somewhere snorting the longest line of cocaine known to man, hope he doesn't die...
