Hi, welcome to Michael’s profile. Michael is a legacy male pokey german shepherd who came into my home from Sandy and Western’s Christmas Rehoming! I had known pretty long in advance about the Christmas rehoming. I believe it was mentioned at the end of the Halloween rehoming, but I personally couldn’t remember if it was or not. I remember a friend of mine messaging me saying that Sandy was already filling her side account with new pets to rehome. That’s when I saw Blitzen, and I immediately started to freak out! I was dedicated to bringing hom home oh… about like a week after she had brought him onto that account XD I had seen him back whenever he was still with Apedemak but I personally never knew where he had ended up. I just knew he was traded away before I could ever make an offer. So seeing him on Sandy’s profile made me super excited to try adn bring him into my home.
not patiently for a month until the thread was finally up! I actually didn’t see it until I got a message from my friend, and a few people had already applied, and 4 of them were for him! I knew going in that my chances would be slim since a lot of people come out of the woodwork whenever Sandy’s rehomings happen. You are like “I thought you quit three years ago… Huh” Its like a 6th sense XD I remember it taking me close to two hours to actually get my application in. I kept writing and rewriting my application, changing the graphics, and then changing them back. I finally made an application I was incredibly proud of and I submitted. I then spent the next week+ chatting with people and having such a fun time in between family time for the holidays. Then the first round of elimination/homes was posted. I remember looking through it and my tummy dropped whenever I saw my name. I was so thrilled that I had made it past that first hurdle of applications. I truly didn’t think I was going to make it, but there I was, one of the Top 5 for Blitzen. Our first task was if we believed in New Years Resolutions and if we were making one. Short: I do believe in them as being a nice motivation throughout the year and I did make a few irl and Foopet ones. At this point my graphics also had gotten an upgrade because homegirl finally learned how to make/edit gifs lol So his task got a cute fancy banner!
After posting my task everyone chatting and anxiously awaited the next Tops. Sandy even mentioned it may be just owners, but my heart wasn’t ready for that and was happy to know it would be tops instead. I remember that everyone who applied for Blitzen just had amazing tasks and amazing graphics. I was scared I didn’t stand out enough, but I must have. Because on January 1st Top 3 came out. I was shocked to see my name. I remember I was with my real Michael (♥) whenever I remembered. I was eating with family earlier whenever I opened up the rehoming and saw that tops were posted. I was like ’I’ll check after dinner, I cant risk choking on food in front of family XD So I brought Michael leftovers (it was from his favorite pasta place, it was his favorite dish, and I knew he would be super excited. Plus I wanted to see him today lol) We were sitting in the car and I bolted straight up from my nice reclined chillin seat lol. I was like “I NEED TO CHECK FOOPETS!” He was super confused and as i was googling it, I told him about the tops being posted. I was so scared I wasn’t going to make it. I had lost two rehomings that day for two pets I really wanted to bring home. I just didn’t know what I would do if I hadn’t made those tops. Well, I was going to be sad and probably stay offline for a bit tbh lol But then I saw my name. I was so happy, and I got a kiss form Michael as a congratulations!!! So a win win lol. The task was to make his profile and scene, which… I am doing now. Yep this profile was
mostly made January… 2nd at 1 am XD Great timing of course lol I started on his scene, and I chose Blue Fantasy. Michael’s all time favorite color is Blue, and this boy loves dragons and all things mythical and fantasy like. So I thought that the scene that I created with the color I chose fits my boyfriend to a T.
The next part of the rehoming was the most nerve wrecking. I felt if everyday my nerves were getting worse and the closer and closer that day got… I was just a mess lol. I was worried that me not being on due to family issues really took a toil on my chances with Michael coming home. I was terrified the day that Sandy said she would be announcing his home. I had actually gotten offline because I was hanging out with my real Michael, whenever I saw a post from Western. This sweet girl was going to gift Sandy the MLPH Western had gotten for free whenever Lauren quit. She told us to message her some words about how we felt over Sandy, and I decided to check the rehoming whenever I was done message Western. The tops were already posted and I just zoned in on my name. Like i didn’t even mean to, but I saw the names listed, and I was just staring at mine shocked. I was honestly thinking I wouldn’t win since I had just won my MLPH, Reaper, from Sandy’s previous rehoming… and there was my name next to Blitzen. I finally had my boy home ♥
Michael here is named after my wonderful boyfriend who is just the most amazing nerd in the entire world.
Michael and I met back my junior year of highschool, but he was a 2nd year at the time. My boyfriend at the time brought me into his friend group, and Michael was in it. Funny enough he was the only one there that wasn’t in band, but everyone still loved having him around. I personally never talked to him due to the fact that he was super shy, i was socially awkward, and that would have just been a trash of a conversation lol. Fast forward a few years and it is the summer after my Freshman year of college. I am dating
trash this guy named Brian. Now Brian would always invite Michael over and won’t tell me, so I would go over to hang out and would be like, “Oh… hi there…” and we would all awkwardly play games. Well…more of Brian being very social, and Michael and I being very very quiet. I still remember the first time I got him to laugh. I made a joke poking at Brian, and Michael couldn’t help but laugh. Even then whenever I was dating someone else I thought he had the cutest laugh. Fast forward AGAIN another few months into the school year, every single Wednesday Brian would have Michael and our other friend come to his dorm room for video games. It started with me just napping in the dorm room, but then turned to me playing games with them. Over time, Michael and I started to get closer and closer. We all went to the same video game tournament on Saturday, and it started to slowly developed into a friendship. It was until about October that I realized I liked him. Me being me, I was like, “Oh this is just because my relationship isn’t offering any emotional support, i don’t really like him!” You know, making up excuses up those excuses we do whenever we feel like our relationship isn’t too bad to leave even though the most perfect person is right in front of you. For me that perfect person was Michael. So for a few months, me and him had this weird flirty friendship that was completely accidental until November came. I had determined I was going to break up with Brian and his robotic emotions. I decided to do it after finals in December so that he wouldn’t fail any of his finals, and I wouldn’t have to deal with his drama AND study. So finals came and went, I broke up with him, and I finally managed to tell Michael I liked him. He felt the same way but not at the same time. He had been burnt in the past by a relationship so hard that he found the thought of a relationship terrifying. For the months of December and the beginning of January, Michael cut me out of his life. Everything had changed with all my friendships because of the break up, and I just had such a hard time being able to keep myself sane.
In January, Michael and I had a class together. I was so nervous because I didn’t want to scare him away. Even though he hadn’t talked to me, I still wanted to be just friends with him. I was sure the crush would go away, so I was like “LETS TRY THIS!” So for a few weeks I was very very nervous around him. I felt like I was walking on eggshells, and I was just terrified that he was going to leave me again. I have abandonment issues, and he made that come true once, and I didn’t want it to happen again. So in February, a group of us went down to a video game tournament in a neighboring state, and he ended up being in my car ride/hotel room. Now the person who booked the room apparently didn’t catch the 1 million messages of me saying we needed two beds and a couch for our room. Like there were five of us, and I was the only girl. It was going to be two, two, and then me… in a bed alone because I was a driver. We all walk in and is a couch and a single king bed. After a while, we decided that Michael, me, and one of our close friends would sleep in the bed given that we all knew each other and were the most comfortable of the three out of the group. The first night was normal, we all were like 3 feet away from each other
two bros chilling in a hot tub five feet apart because they’re not gay. But the second night Michael and I ended up closer. I woke up in his arms, which was something that hadn’t happened in a solid month (we had a thing in the beginning of December) That entire drive home was terrible. I felt like i ruined all the time i was trying to dedicate to make that friendship normal again. I felt like it was all over. But somehow it wasn’t. Michael felt weird about everything, but not enough to leave me again thankfully. So the beginning of March we started a weird FWB thing. We would cuddle in my car, sometimes kiss, and that was it. He was there when I needed him for friendship, emotional support, or if I just wanted to cuddle someone. At about the end of March, beginning of April, I started to go over to Michael’s house. Not too much at first, but by May I was spending every weekend over there and sometimes a few days of the week. On May 9th Michael (finally) asked me to be his girlfriend. It was known we were a thing, but that for some reason just made me super happy. I could finally call him mine.
Looking back at it, a normal person would have given up. If it was someone else in my situation I would have told them to stop trying. But I am happy that I didn’t. The moment I first saw him laugh I knew there was something about him. I wanted to spend my life with him. He was the one who I wanted to be with. He made me feel so loved, and I finally knew what everyone meant by when you look at that person, you just know. He is my person. So I didn’t want to give up on him just because he was going through some personal issues. Me and him talk about this all the time, and we actually joke that it was stupid of me to deal with all of that. But I was so in love with him, and I knew the reasons he didn’t want to be with me was because he never thought he could be in a relationship again. I was there for him, yes because I liked him, but I wanted to help him realize that he was so freaking special and deserved someone. If that someone wasn’t me, that would have been fine. I wanted him to be happy. Now I’m thrilled that it was me. One of my favorite things is that we saved each other in a way. He helped me with my mental health and I helped him with his. Without Michael, yeah I would be the same, but he just fills my life with so much wonder and love. He is my soul mate, and I am going to marry him one day soon. I plan to spend the rest of my life with the man who makes my heart sing.
I love you, honeybear. To Pluto and back ♥
