i can has rentsecrets?  

Hey, so, uh... I guess you guys have noticed already that rentsecrets has been missing in action for the past couple of weeks. I'd have, you know, posted an explanation earlier, but I thought it would be funny to see you guys flailing around, trying to figure out what had happened. I was hoping that there would be lots of speculation about the deletion, but that didn't happen. Seriously, you guys? The me being a vampire thing? That was fucking gold. The fact that this all happened at the same time as Strikethrough 2007 2: Electric Boldaloo? Seriously. Next time someone hands you bait like that, fucking take it.

Anyways. The point I'm trying to make is that, as of now, rentsecrets is effectively dead. The deletion was mostly symbolic, and also, like I said, for lulz. I'm going to be leaving the community up, because the archives are still worth looking at, but there won't be any more updates.

When _morning_glow, pyoko, and myself (and bessiemaemucho, since she really was the one who inspired us in the first place) started this community, we thought it would only last for a few weeks, and only on the strength of us and the rest of our friends making fake secrets. It kind of took off, though, and any time we hit a milestone, I was shocked. After a year and a half, though... rentsecrets has taken it's toll on me. It stopped being fun a long time ago.

So, here we are. We've had some good times, haven't we? Remember all the secrets about Cary Shields? Or the time that April wasn't the whore of Babylon? Remember WENTZ? Or the whole Team Arcelus/Team Manuel thing? Oh man. Just go read the archives, you guys. You don't need any new shitty secrets.

That's about it, I guess. Have fun, thanks for making this community what it was. I've always thought most of you were assholes, and you probably think the same of me, but it's been fun nonetheless. Tara and I have an inability to say no to random ideas for communities that pop into our heads, so you'll probably be hearing from us again eventually.

I completely agree.
Thank you for not deleting everything, though. I like to peruse the old secrets for lulz. It's a nice reminder that there are a lot of people out there who really have no life. Hehe.

I was bummed that RENT secrets was gone because I loved the archives so I am happy we have that, and yes I agree we don't need anymore new shitty ones...

Now I'll NEVER be able to submit that secret about my sex dream featuring Tim Howar performing cunnilingus on me. Seriously though, it was fun while it lasted. So much Cary drama and drama within the comments about the Cary drama was hysterical to read.

That dream really did happen and fyi, it would have been an awesome secret. But maybe the world is better without it. Now all you secret makers, go invade broadway secrets! Ohhh, wait... maybe I'll make the secret for that comm... ;)

Seriously. *grumbles* I had a whole story ready, too. It would have been awesome.

Remember WENTZ?
Saved to my harddrive, no lie, because that is AMAZING.

You made a valient effort to spread rumors, baby, and I appreciate it.
a cross between CandyLand and Pandemicpressdbtwnpages on August 14th, 2007 06:15 am (UTC)
I DID. I had a plot and everything, it could have caused suspicion and backstabbing and in-fighting. More, I mean, than usual for rentsecrets. Alas, my dastardly plans never came to fruition!

I was going to ask you to make one with aldo saying that he deleted rentsecrets, but you weren't around.

Personally, the viewing one another as assholes is what made the community fun to me. But. At least we have it archived.

Mixed emotions. Mostly I feel bad for Broadway Secrets.

That's okay, it happens to the best of us.

LMFAO! That part just had me snickering for some reason. The only reason I would sometimes look at these secrets are, because, sometimes there was some pretty awesome graphic design in them, lol. But, I've kinda strayed away for..well, for most of the time :P But, it was fun for a little bit ;) Bye bye!
Craww: rent - mark and rogercraww on August 13th, 2007 05:40 pm (UTC)
Probably for the best.

I'm afraid what's going to happen now that I don't have a proper outlet for my Photoshop and misplaced affections for Rapp and Pascal. No more ladyjeans, bat embryos, or disturbing headswaps.

So long, hateful anons. We had a good thing, you and I.
world chess champion: rent; not judging him or anythingshibaiko on August 13th, 2007 09:05 pm (UTC)
You'll just have to go back to making disturbing Rent wallpapers for yourself, I'm afraid.

Of all the things I will miss most about rentsecrets, I think the hateful anon is at the top of the list.
Craww: misc - naythankyoucraww on August 13th, 2007 09:33 pm (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't have it in me anymore, though. There's been a long distance between Mark tying Benny up with film strip, and two consecutive Roger/Mimi wallpapers. I'm sure I'll make nonsensical Mark/Collins/Joanne threesome art once rentsecrets has been dead for more than 3 months, though. I just need time.

Never Forget, Hateful Anon. We must never forget.

I'm just glad the old ones weren't deleted.

Poor, poor Broadway Secrets...

I will certainly miss nights like this one:

That's probably the last time I actually had fun at this community.

that was fucking amazing

I almost made STUMP a million times, but it would have been a pale (fat, balding) imitation of WENTZ, so I never could. :(

You forgot short.

I like Patrick. I'm trying to let him maintain some dignity.

I don't think that being short really signifies any loss of dignity in bandom. Like, I think that to get signed on Fueled By Ramen/Decaydance, you have to be pocket-sized.

Which means Rapp is about to sign with them? OMG, Stump should cover Just Some Guy.

Only in my dreams and/or epic Patrick/Anthony fanfiction would that happen.

I personally think he would be better suited for Out Damn Spot. Pete can scream in the background.
Craww: misc - naythankyoucraww on August 15th, 2007 09:23 am (UTC)
That can be the B-Side. The lead of the single still has to be the White Boy Soul version of Just Some Guy. Patrick will do that ditty up nice, half plaintive/half porn groove.
Craww: misc - naythankyoucraww on August 14th, 2007 06:45 am (UTC)

So unfair that rentsecrets dies just as I find this picture.
lovesafable on August 15th, 2007 12:56 am (UTC)
it died like last year
gurrrl where you been
Craww: fnl - SGT RIGZ PHDcraww on August 15th, 2007 01:23 am (UTC)
Well, then it was dead like that relationship where you both know it's over, but are still living together out of fear of moving on. One of you is sleeping on the couch, and there's occasional sex, but it's never really good.

And now it's dead dead. Which is okay, but I don't have any more opportunities to spring terrifying pictures like that on more than just my close friends.

Maybe we should try "high school musical' secrets. :)
Jennacaughtfire on September 2nd, 2007 05:18 pm (UTC)
It was great and then...people started bashing and that's what ruined it. I don't think this community was ever intended for all of that bashing...The only people we have to blame are those who ruined it for us =( Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.

I totally just found this post today. Aww, rentsecrets. You've cheered me up so many times. ("Mark/unicorn is getting old" is my favorite aside from "ladyjeans.") Glad we'll still be able to see the old secrets, though.

There aren't any more secrets, Pyoko.
