Okay, I'm finding this thread topic on this Offbeat board I know Nathaniel used to post on.
With regret, I feel obligated to say he passed away last month.
He was my soulmate.
Are you familiar with Gage and Shan?

Since I was asked:

A long time on a server far away, there once posted a young gay man named Gage. Poor Gage had all of life's hardships thrown at him on top of the familial junk that comes with being a gay man with intolerant parents and siblings. Gage would regale his friends of how effed up his life was and we commiserated with him.

Eventually, it came to light that Gage had a crush on Shan - a coworker. Shan was apparently a handsome young man and Gage would wax on and on about him. His audience encouraged him to tell Shan how he felt but Gage was too shy.

Then, one day, SHAN happened to sit at Gage's computer, open to the site, and discovered Gage's feelings towards him. Shan created an account on that same site and soon became a friend to all as well.

Most began to enjoy the banter of the two and try to help when they argued. They became a 'power couple.'

And so it was, one day, that Gage informed everyone that they were going to get 'married'- or whatever passed for gay marriage way back when. I believe gifts were bought, money sent and well wishes all around were given.

Well, not quite all around for, you see, there was an evil contingent on that site, a cynical bunch, who felt that, just maybe, the string of all these coincidences were just too much to bear. One of them joked about sending Gage and Shan a toaster...

Finally, on a dark, dark day, Gage and Shan were actually exposed as characters from someone's fanfic stories. They weren't actually real. The fraud was exposed and a lot of very good, well intentioned people wound up feeling very, very silly. And angry. And hurt.

I would love to come up with something witty, funny, or sarcastic to add to this sad story.. but I got nothing..
folks need to remember where they are playing...I think we have learned not to send AS any money to save Simba and his dying sister...but this stuff happens every day.. even a lot of the so called legit posters a lot of times are not as they seem. We dont live with these folks,,work with them..KNOW THEM,,, no matter we fight to prove we do..
beware the smoke and mirrors..

anyone interested in sending money to replace may pm me for all my personal information...

I think the moral is you have to approach these things with a heavy amount of skepticism. I am not saying there's necessarily a hoax here but, I gotta say, it's sure quacking like a duck.

There's a lot of catfishing going on here. That's not to say some folks don't actually connect, meet in real life and have all the trials and tribulations of that sort of relationship. It does happen. But, just as likely, if you've never physically met that person there's a good chance said person is not exactly what he or she would appear to be.

For all I know, the Nat and Matt story may be the real deal. There are, however, a lot of duck feathers floating around.

The story of my online name, for anyone who cares to know, Nathaniel is my RW name....Topix say no....Ornament is an online name I've used....Topix say no.....put the two together....Topix say yay
Ornament is from the film 'Open Doors' of The Doors...a scene where each one is arriving and a reporter asks 'what are you in the band?' they reply...singer, drums, keyboards & so on then JM's girlfriend is asked, she shrugs her shoulders & replies 'ornament'....so cut to the chase it's a Doors ref
Thanks.. I brought this up.. Because it continued after I walked away... Nice to have known such a Beautiful soul..
