Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos Regional Message Board
Greetings, all. I am moving this nation here to rest on its journey through life. I know this place isn't big on talking, so I will tell my story in silence, muttering to myself. If any passerby cares to stop and listen, so be it.
Cortexin was founded long ago, in about June of 2013. I stayed in one of the Pacifics--I've long forgotten which one it was--for a while until I received a recruitment letter for a region I'll abbreviate to AE. AE was a fun place--we had an active roleplay, the community was large and friendly. Everything was great... until the day we realized that the RP had ground to a halt. People were disinterested, and everything quickly died on us. A few of us, myself included, tried desperately to save it, but to no avail. I later CTE'd (cease-to-exist'ed), and quietly forgot NationStates. In February 2014, I re-discovered NS, and founded another nation--DH, for short--and went about trying to find a home like that of the AE, but nothing was what I wanted. By chance, I came across my old region, and found it with a new life. I returned to the AE, and life was good for a short while. In May, things began to die again, and what made things worse was raid. The AE was being invaded, and it seemed powerless to stop it. I fled, but my friends held on strongly, and they saved the region. I CTE'd again, because life was busy and I had no time for NS.
Fast-forward to September 2015. I had been thinking about NS for a week, and I felt that it was time to get back into the game. I refounded Cortexin and DH, along with another nation, MB. I kept Cortexin in Osiris, one of the three regions where revived nations come back to life, and in early October moved DH to a place that was just beginning, hoping to help it grow. This nation, TE, barely lasted two weeks before puttering out. It is a dead region now, and DH is one of three nations there. I considered taking Cortexin back to AE, but saw that it was dead and long forgotten. However, I discovered the New AE (NAE), and moved MB there, where I now reside. Cortexin lay in a strange limbo of almost-nonexistence, but then I discovered this place. I plan to stay here until I can find somewhere else to go.
Thank you for having me. I look forward to staring indefinitely into the abyss.

(But I liked the "Surreal" tag.)
Far away from the bustling noise
At Cosmos' edge sat a quiet cottage
Where the evenings were lit up with lamps.
Lonely on the precipice it stood, touching the horizon.
When quiet souls inhabited the place
Humor shone brighter than electric lights.
There was abundance of kinship to light up the world;
The cottage was a shrine where puppets resided.
There was less embellishments
But the grandeur of the souls there shone through.
It was a humbling experience for any visitor to see -
Amazed by the rich simplicity
With which it welcomed the weary traveler.
Not such a quiet cottage anymore.
O. I like that. And I'll tag it again.
Still quiet, just really really big and quiet.
sigh.... all this quiet is making me sleepy
