So I wanted to share a Sea of Thieves love story. First off. I want to thank Rare for developing this game and being so amazing at interacting with the community and listening to their community!
So I started playing Sea of Thieves in May 2018. I was convinced to try it out on gamepass as I saw quite a few of my friends playing it.
In June of 2018, I met a pirate, who, unbeknownst to me, would change my life forever. His gamertag is SPANARD! I never knew the excitement I would soon get whenever I saw that name pop online in the future.
I wasn't quite a pirate legend yet, I was pretty close to it, and once I met Spanard, he made everything seem possible. Soon, we began spending hours upon hours, sailing the seas, fighting pirates, sinking ships, and just being two of the most fearsome pirates on the seas (in our eyes).
Days turned into weeks, turned into months and our friendship grew into something deeper, much more serious in fact. We realized how much alike we really were. Our interests, thoughts and views, everything just clicked together. I found out he is in the military, soon to go on deployment. I myself, am an EMT fulltime for a Rescue squad.
Although we live two states and 7 hours apart, we found out ways to spend quality time with each other. Fast forward to October, we met for the first time outside the game and in person. Everything just fell into place from that moment on. Our feelings for each other has grown into a love that neither of us has experienced before and officially became a couple. Since then we met up two more times, with Christmas being the last time I got to see him before he deployed overseas. Now, on deployment, I won't be able to see him until sometime in October, but still to this day, we are able to play our favorite game together from time to time as he gets some rest. This deployment is hard for both of us, but playing Sea of Thieves makes it so much easier as it just still feels like he is closer to home for me.
He had helped me become pirate legend back in August, as of two days ago, we obtained our Athena level 10 together!!
Our plans are to move in together once he is back from deployment. We are also planning to get married now in 2020-2021! We are even planning to have a pirate themed wedding! (Arrrrrrrrr!!!)
So I just wanted to say. Thank you Rare, and Sea of Thieves, for making this game awesome... because of this game... I have found my soulmate! We call ourselves the Bonnie and Clyde of the Seas... the King and Queen of the Sea of Thieves... and without this game... it probably would have never happened. So thank you once again for being such an amazing gaming community!
