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?

*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.

About the Absence: So roughly a week or so ago I was told that the company I'd been working for for the past 4 months [temp to hire position] could no longer keep me on because all of the worlds shipping issues are causing such a shortage in work for us to do. I really loved working there and would easily say its been the best job I've ever had by far. As a result I've been a bit depressed and a tad museless since. I've been trying to get through my owed [slowly, I'm sorry!] and even tossed myself into a new character to try and keep my brain distracted from getting actually depressed, but it's been a bit of an uphill battle of just being down in the dumps. The sorta upside is that once the hold that's causing the shipping issues ends they told me that they really want me to come back [the day I left was honestly heartbreaking with lots of tears and hugs from my coworkers].

Which brings me to the reason why I finally decided to post something in here. Next week I'm going to be starting contract work to try and hold out for as long as I can for my old job and my god... does it sound utterly miserable. 6 days and 60hrs a week. I'm already dying a little bit on the inside before even starting. The agency I go through said it will last for around a month or two, and since contract work is scarce right now its basically this or nothing. I'll still be posting as much as I can [albeit slowly if I had to guess, unless misery somehow propels me into a surge of creativity], but outside of that I imagine I'll be a bit of a ghost. If for some reason anyone needs me I vastly prefer Discord be used to contact me, but PMs are fine as well.

See you all on the other side. <3

6/3 Edit: Things have been going a ton better recently and I've been working on being less of a ghost and getting back into the swing of things around the site! Unfortunately I've been a tad busy this past week as I'll be attending a wedding this weekend and both myself and my boyfriend may or may not have waited till the last second to prepare. As such please use a pass for me this month, and know I appreciate all my of thread partners patience as I try my best to not have this crazy life moment be another repeat poofing moment on my part. <3

About the Absence: Crazy time at work because every client wants to have everything ready before the summer + we're buying a new place which is great but also takes a lot of energy. I'm lurking around, but this is a PSA for why my replies may be slower. Update June 6: So we now have a new place but it turns out selling the old one is even more stressful. I'll try to get back to posting but things will still be a bit slow for a while, I'm afraid.

About the Absence: OK, so I've been really off with my activity and I really wanna work on that this week - I know, last week of the month, not great - but Elaine and I are moving into a new apartment in July! Which means little if any computer time, and what little time we get will probably be focused on class work (we're also both taking summer classes, yay for college).

About the Absence: Hiii, really sorry I've been MIA. Worklife has been hectic, I've grown from managing one team to managing many distributed teams and traveling more. To be honest I just haven't had the mental energy by the end of the day to do anything except figure out dinner and melt into bed. It sucks because I'm really excited about threads/plots with you all but am struggling to reclaim my Charming time. Thank you for bearing with and still including me. <3

About the Absence: I'm having a depressive anxious turn. It's great. I feel like I'm failing my characters and I'm absolutely frozen. I'm trying and I spent basically the past week trying to will somebody and psyching myself out of it. Hopefully soon I'll stop failing at life.

About the Absence: I don't really know how to explain this without getting into like, a whole essay of things you didn't ask nor care to know, but basically, recently, I've been diagnosed with non-alcoholic related cirrhosis of the liver, and these next few weeks, especially I'll be having like, a ton of medical tests done and a biopsy, etc. Therefore, unfortunately, I won't be able to write nearly as often as I have been. I don't know if this will mean I'll have a full absence, but it's enough where I probably won't be on every day except for on my phone just to check up on things. I'll still try to write as often as I can, of course! Just, probably won't be able to do a reply every single day the way I have been doing. So I figured I'd give a little heads up! <3
