This would have been very disturbing anyway but then Pet's eye popped out and started rolling along the bottom of the boat. Great. Maybe she would be so fortunate as to have a kraken surface nearby and pluck her off the ship with one of its tentacles and kindly drown her. Petra Sleptova in Land, Ho!

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!

[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, @Elladora Black, or @Elsie Beauregard with any questions, issues, or concerns.

Status: Absent/Scarce? I'm not even sure.
Pass: No
Date Leaving: Ever since my last absence (End of Oct)
About the Absence: As some of you know, I've recently moved to a new state, and we're currently living with a relative until we can purchase and move into a new house. Up until the end of October, my wife had been living in our last state. Now, she's here with me, as well as my cats and my dog. We are all squashed into a tiny room (like there's a bed and two feet of walking room), and it's...trying. (My cats are also, understandably, pissed off they are trapped in a room and can't roam. So, we aren't sleeping.) It's a bit difficult to reliably get on my computer to type out posts for a variety of reasons. So, I am going to be outrageously slow, and I sincerely apologize for that. Our old house closes this week, and, hopefully, everything will have processed, so we can start looking next week for a permanent residence. Things are just a bit stressful right now, and my other half is having some trouble adjusting.

I hope we have our own place again, soon. And then things should be better. I hope.

About the Absence: So, I thought I was going to get my butt in gear this month but... ugh I didn't and I suck. I will try to focus on the older threads that I owe so they don't also die. Tragically, I doubt I will get anywhere on my NaNo, but that is my next priority after saving those poor threads. I'm so sorry for all of those who I have failed. I swear I don't mean to be this much of a failure.

Magic by MJ!

About the Absence:

This is more of a precaution in case the end of the year gets busy. Work is still chugging along, but it's also making me feel very very tired, despite me trying to spend my energy elsewhere and live with it.

That, and this past week my uncle was put into hospice care after a long battle of illness. We expected him to last until at least early April so we could see him one last time [bc at this point he'd been living with it for so long], but last night he passed away in his sleep. I hadn't seen him in a long time, so emotionally I'm very melancholy, but doing alright. I'm more concerned about my mom and want to be there to support her. The memorial service is slated to be late December and out of state for all of us - literally a day after my parents are supposed to fly back home from visiting me, so a few things are up in the air.

I always turn to here for some escapism, so my activity level might still be normal, but there's ALSO a good chance I might be spending the latter half of this month scrambling. Just want to be prepared, and I'll update this when I get more news <3

EDIT [22.12.19]
My parents have decided to not attend the memorial service but we'll all attend The 2nd one (for family that can't make this one cuz #expensiveflights) in the summer. I'll still keep this up because I have family visiting but I don't think I'll need a pass :)

Following Bree's example and asking if we have threads that are about to go dead / are dead and you'd like to continue, please Skype me!
