social networks are a great place, except when you’re dragged into a war.
okay, so i’ve made great friends on them, like when danni introduced me to marshall, and we all know how important internet friends are. but the particular tale concerns people who know/knew(?) each other in real life. so attacks can get more personal, and unwitting allies can be used as pawns. sadly, i think i may be used as one of them very,very soon.
there’s a lot of history between danni, anka, my first friend who i’ll call ‘lori’ (met her irl at danni’s party – danni, marshall and anka went to primary school with her) and somebody i don’t know at all i’ll call ‘claire’. claire seems to not like lori at all, and lori seems a little left out when danni and claire go to each other’s houses, hang out etc. i can’t blame her, really – danni and anka talk about claire like she’s the devil incarnate, but danni spends a lot of time with her for somebody who says she hates her. the background behind this is very complicated, and i won’t pry into these matters any more. unless i need to later. in fact, i definitely will. let’s carry on for now.
anyway, one day lori didn’t feel that good (citing personal matters later) and decided to write a lengthy rant about something petty that i don’t want to talk about right now. i decided to write a lengthier rant about why she shouldn’t do that sort of things, and danni and anka and marshall followed suit. thinking back, i probably shouldn’t have done that. lori is a sensitive girl, and she’s really, really unhappy at her school. it sounds shitty, and i hope she can come over with danni and anka and i soon. but danni thinks she’s clingy and kinda obsessive, and doesn’t want her at our school.
the next day lori posted another lengthy apology about what she had done, and knowing her, i felt she meant it. i was quick to apologise, and the only one to post a forgiveness message. i don’t want myself to look like a martyr – i don’t think anyone else saw it for a while. it was 5 days after the next comment came in.
this one was by claire. i’m currently debating whether to post up her comment in my head, but for now i’ll just explain what she said.
no i won’t. here’s her comment in whole.
“omg hav u read this [danni] !?!?!? btw i dont feel guilty, cus this is kinda a ridiculous post, u shoudve just not said it in the first place. it would of saved all the soppy, trying to make people feel bad, weird fake posts. most people will think im being harsh but Soorrrrryyyyy, thats my opinion and i highly doubt u had tears in ur eyes……. what do u think [marshall]“
danni was alerted, and just said that she and anka would not comment on matters further. they then proceeded to have a completely unrelated convo on lori’s post. marshall didn’t do anything (i think he was abroad at the time though).
on the same day claire posted some other mean comments on some of lori’s pictures about her favourite singer.
god damn, girl. how far will you go?
lori and danni have not said anything to myself about the situation, and i doubt i should get involved any more than i am now. i don’t want to get on anybody’s side, but claire seems like a nasty piece of work and if she says anything else to lori that seems in the slightest bit mean, i would probably jump to her defence, danni said that claire was very popular at their old school, and i know how it feels to be picked on by popular people. in 1 word, soul-crushing. the dash makes it 1 word, right?
slightly unrelated, but to liven the mood, i’ll post some music.
