This is going to be absolutely huge to some of you. I want to make an apology to everyone who has ever been on this site and listened to both mine and AlphaStorm73's music. The reason I bring both up is that, him and I are the same person. Everything on that page was a lie. Lying is the worst thing I've done, especially when it has affected people as harshly as it has in that scenario. My biggest apologies go out to @instaskillz, @DJ-Frosted, and @TomFulp. All of these people believed what I had said (Unless Tom Fulp didn't in which case, I'm sorry for putting you under that spotlight). However, it was Waterflame who got me to give you all this apology. The entire story is a really long one, and I wish I could save it for another time, but I want to get everything off of my chest right here and now.
July 1st, 2016: I start making music. That was the day things started to become harder. A month later, I made this account on NewGrounds. This was my first actual account I made on NewGrounds. However because of how popular my other account was getting, I decided to stay over there. My other account was named from my FaceBook page (Zachary Young). My persona over there was actually a fake version of me who has been creeping his way into my normal life. This persons name: Jack Smith. Yes, on the other account, I had a friend who died and was under the same name, but the truth is, that song was illuding to this moment here. I am not 28, obviously. I'm not who I said I was, and nothing of what happened over there was true. None of the storys I told were true. I never had a friend named Jake who died. My current real life friend Jake is still very much alive and well. The only part that was legit was the music. That stuff was all real. I made all of it from scratch.
As a final word, I want to say again: I'm sorry. I was foolish. The only reason I spoke up about this was because of a response to a post I made on WaterFlame's FaceBook page. It was very strongly worded (Not like swear words, just sincere), and I realised that you all deserve an apology. I had quit that fake life, but I don't suspect my reputation to remain in tact. In fact, I don't expect to gain any more popularity after this. Hell, I don't want to. Everyone's opinion of me has obviously dropped dramatically, and I want to say I'm sorry. 'Memories Shall Remain' is going to be deleted because of the fact that it suggests this fake persona who actually didn't die. I spent so long under that persona that, if I changed the details now, I would have received heavy backlash. But, had I not done this, it would have been accepted quicker, and I wouldn't have to deal with the shame.
I don't want to see people sending me support. After what I did, I don't deserve support. I also don't want to be shrouded in sympathy, because I don't deserve it. But, what I would like to see is civility. Say harsh things to me, I deserve them, but try to be civil. I just don't want to be shamed off of this website, because I love it.
Anyway, I'm sorry. I should have told you this a long time ago, and I regret everything I did.
