I'm AuraBlaze, and I was one of the unfortunate people caught up in the banning of <18 users. Somewhat awkwardly, my account was unlocked almost 6 months ago, and I've just been kind of lurking, with my only interactions being with the moderators to get my account unlocked the day before my eighteenth birthday.
In terms of my interests, they haven't really changed, I'm still a self-identified geek, and I still love Pokemon. Really, the only thing that's changed in my life is that I have a better idea about what I want to do with it. I will be going to college in pursuit of a software development degree in the fall, and I eventually want to be a game designer.
As for stuff related to ABDL, getting locked out of ADISC kind of put me in a dark place. I went through a bad purge, and had some serious suicidal thoughts at a few points because of it. I still haven't come out to anyone IRL, but I've come to terms with my little side and diaper fetish now, and it no longer bothers me.
All and all, it just feels amazing to type this. I'm glad to be back!
