RIP Club Penguin
I was the little girl who had all of the puffles in real life, and made them into little families with the keychains as the babies
I was the little girl who would always bring my Card Jitsu cards to primary school and I’d set all of my little friends up on a mat during lunch break and teach them how to play
I was the little girl who always had a membership and subsequently made my friends hella jealous because of all my puffles, clothes, and furniture
I was the little girl who only ever got to meet one ‘penguin celebrity’ - Rockhopper - and spent most of my time on tracker websites trying to track the other ones.
I was the little girl who was a badass at bean counters and taught all my friends about the jelly bean version
I was the little girl who occasionally got random penguins banned because I was a bit of a bitch
I was the little girl who used all the puffle coin codes before giving them to other kids, only for them to learn that they were no longer valid
I was the little girl who had a giant Club Penguin 9th birthday, which was probably the coolest one my school had ever seen - complete with a cake that looked like a blue puffle
I was the little girl who got her Club Penguin cards stolen by a little shitty boy and tried to track them down with @pidgeonkatie and my other friends before a boy named Hugh saved the day
I was the girl who’d organise server meet and greets and log onto Club Penguin in the school computer labs even where I wasn’t allowed
I was the girl who forgot to get my puffles all the time and never failed at feeling bad about it
I was the girl who first played Club Penguin at my friend’s house, only to think it was the coolest thing ever
I was the little girl who loved that game with my whole heart, and despite having never played it in like five years, I still feel a little sad that it’s over.
Thanks for being such a great friend to a little girl, Club Penguin, and thanks MortaDela, Rose8008, and all my other primary school friends I’d always play with.
