Dear Pixie Pals,
Today is just a simple Friday for all. Go to work or school, come back home, hang out with friends, eat, read, sleep.
However, for us Pixies, it is something much different. 19th of September doesn’t seem like what it was before. Thinking of the day makes me disheartened.
It was the day Pixie Hollow, one of Disney’s most popular MMORPGs shut down, quite unexpectedly.
I still remember that day. I was sitting in Havendish Square, counting the time. All of a sudden, a fairy sitting beside me, Moonmist, said ‘Eh, the time has come’, on public chat. A few moments later, the screen turned blue. I got a message saying that ‘We are having technical problems’. Then, it loaded and took me to another page filled with stuff about the latest Disney films.
Pixie Hollow was gone.
This should have been practically the case with anyone else in Pixie Hollow at that time.
The idea of not being able to fly with my fairy friends, not feeding Merry, not going shopping to Summit Style and not playing Bubble Bounce seemed alien to me. Yet, it was no dream. This was the sheer truth. Pixie Hollow wasn’t there anymore.
Till now, I go to bed everyday thinking that ‘Pixie Hollow will return someday anyway.’ But, the chances of it returning anytime in the near future is slim. I hate being monotonous all the time. Nevertheless, fingers crossed.
Now, one year later, Pixie Hollow is still fresh in our hearts. Well, almost.
Today is the first day of the Pixie Hollow Reunion.
TIME: There would be no fixed time, since we all have different timings. Try to be online more often, so that you can find your pixie pals!
DATE: 19th to the 23rd of September, 2013.

Our motto: REKINDLE OUR FRIENDSHIPS, REVIVE OUR COMMUNITY
We all shall be together in a harmonious way. After all, all we need is each other.
Thank you everyone, who is helping and participating in this reunion of ours.
Here is a lovely poem, written by Jade Vanillaflash, a fellow fairy:
In 2008, in the blink of an eye,
An option came up, to create a fairy and fly!
In 2009, the meadows were small and sweet,
Yet flying around was still a treat.
In 2010, create a fairy changed,
So now people had one fairy to play.
In 2011, some fairies decided to move away,
To make room for sparrow men to play.
In 2012, Meadows were crowded,
But hey, that means people knew all about it!
In 2013, our fate sank with a plop!
As a terrible green board sat at the top.
“Disney Pixie Hollow will close on September 19th”
We refused to give up, working from August 19th,
For our fate shall not be sealed.
But we lost the battle, out Hollow all gone
Yet we kept our hopes up, as we could’ve won.
In 2014, our hopes diminished,
Do post today, if you have a blog, and talk with your pixie pals!
