Wait, your wife did what?!
"I'll bleed wherever I damn well please!" She shouted, scowling at him. As if to prove it, she uncovered her nose and shook her head back and forth like a dog attempting to dry its fur of water. Little droplets of blood rained on the sidewalk all willy-nilly. Billie Farrow in A Good Dusting

Need a Portkey?

We get that sometimes, real life comes up and you can’t be as active as you might want. All we ask is that you give us a heads up! Please post below with the following form filled out to the best of your ability, and we’ll look forward to seeing you again soon!

Code:
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Status:[/b] Scarce? Absent? Somewhere in between?
[b]Pass:[/b] Yes or No*
[b]Date Leaving:[/b]
[b]Date Returning:[/b]
[b]About the Absence:[/b] Optional.

*ON PASSES: The Activity Check falls on the first Sunday of each month. If your absence includes AC day, or a large chunk of the time leading up to it, let us know if you want a “pass” for that month—meaning your characters won’t be deactivated in that check. Keep in mind, though—if you’ve made a new character that month, you can’t take a pass except for Dire Life Circumstances™. If you do not post with your characters for 2 months in a row, they will be deactivated, even if a pass is claimed.



PMs on this account will not be checked.
Instead, please contact @Ursula Black, @Aldous Crouch, @Cassius Lestrange, @Elias Grimstone, @Amelia Evans, @Elladora Black, or @Elsie Beauregard with any questions, issues, or concerns.

Name: Megara
Status: More Absent, I'll try to be in at least once after I post this
Pass: No
Date Leaving: before today
Date Returning: Unknown
About the Absence: I'm sure everyone knows about coronavirus and related quarantines. My Internet has been having a lot of issues, and I'm a little scared to leave and go to the library like I normally would in such situations, and besides that I'm worried about my grandmother getting sick. I'll try to post when I can, hopefully soon.

Name: Finn
Status: Scarce-ish?
Pass: No, but I will be losing half of my folks in the AC intentionally.
Date Leaving:  March? Rofl
Date Returning: I'm hoping I can take this down in June, but, obviously, life will dictate that.
About the Absence:  We're still reeling from my mother-in-law's death. My wife's increased anxiety is feeding into my own, and we're cringing a bit at how reckless people are being as the state slowly reopens. I'm incredibly exhausted all the time. I'm probably going to be a little scarce from time to time, but mostly here. Once the June AC rolls around, I'm going to only have six characters (Billie, Archer, Thomas, Zachariah, Leo, and Eli). I'm hoping this will help me feel less overwhelmed and guilty that I can only seem to post as a few people. We have yet to hear how extended school year will be this summer, so I don't know what that will look like either. It could be more Zooms, which is so tiring.

Name: Bree
Status: Absent (mostly)
Pass: No Yes (for June's AC!)
Date Leaving: April 18
Date Returning: May 1st (hopefully!) May 30th.
About the Absence: I am sluggish and I am anxious and I am experience a relapse of unhealthy coping mechanisms. I might experience a day of wonderful productivity and then I might disappear for two days. Florida is sort of (?) on lockdown until April 30th, but I assume it will be extended, but until I have my head wrapped about the current situation and my job goes back to normal, I will be a complete mess.

Edit - May 1st: My dad was fired from his job, so he can't collect unemployment unless he wants to hire a lawyer and fight it. We're in a rough situation and the stress is eating me alive. Like before, I may have sudden bursts of a specific muse and whatnot, but I might not be on all the time. They're talking about bringing back more hours for work, which is good but also stresses me tf out because Florida hasn't exactly gotten rid of covid-19 yet >.>

Edit - May 10th: Mental health has taken a hit. I'll probably be lurking, but I probably won't be doing much posting. Sorry if I'm holding up threads :(

About the Absence: remote learning has been extended through the end of my school year, which for students ends May 15, for me ends May 22, then we're moving, yay! Needless to say I'm going to be busy, drained of all energy and patience, then moving, so I'm pretty useless until June. Sorry friends!

About the Absence: I've really been struggling this month with everything going on. I was hoping to be on last week or this week but as that's not happening I'm putting this up since it will only get rougher from here with going back to work next week.
Please be safe and well everyone. I miss you. If you need anything skype me.
Love you.

Pass: No (for now may update yes
Date Leaving: Like 2 weeks ago
Date Returning: 6/8 ???
About the Absence: My motivation and focus to post has been nonexistent. Coupled with the house renovation projects I have going on (installing hardwood floors/ building furniture) I'm wiped by the end of the day. Hoping once the flooring is done that I'll be less wiped but we'll see

Update: found out there's something going on with t's heart. Until we have answers I'm going to be a horrible anxious mess. Sorry fam.


Beautiful set credit goes to MJ

Date Leaving: Today
Date Returning: The 1st of June or so. June 13th, hopefully
About the Absence: I'm really stressed due to family drama. Don't know how much muse I have at the moment.

Update: So, family drama certainly hasn't gotten better. My muse is fried. I'm gonna be mainly focusing on my buddy, so please forgive me for slowness.


Magic by MJ!

Pass: Nope
Date Leaving: 5/27/2020

About the Absence:
Just a heads up that, as of Monday 5/25, I started back to work again! It's only three days a week, but it's also from 6am-1pm, which I am not accustomed to yet lol. So if I'm around less often, that's why!
