They hadn't been thieves before, at least. Noble had not been a murderer before either. Now he was one. Did thieving make a difference, at this point?

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]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.

About the Absence: My fiancé has some mildly serious health issues and has some procedures Monday. Stress has been through the roof and as a result I’ve been cranky. I just need a teensy break from everything for a bit. Will continue to lurk and stalk, maybe slap up a few owed starters but I’ll be less active until some things calm down. Love you all, thanks for always being so awesome Charming fam ~<3

1/26 - Things have continued to be stressful and I’m just not in the headspace to Charming with most of my muses at current. I will continue to poke one or two as I can, but I am so, so sorry…

4/1 - Deciding to update this! Things have continued to be chaotic but luckily the household health issues are on the up-swing and I've switched gigs so the hell from my last project has passed. To that point, I'm now managing a whole new team and my free-time to post is zip between that and wedding planning so I won't be able to be as active as before until (I imagine) after the wedding. But let's be optimistic! I will try to make all the ACs as I can, and if I can't will update here! If anyone needs or wants anything from me in the next 6 mos, please don't hesitate to reach out! I take priority requests and am always open to new things with the charming fam <3 Will just have to scale back my 40 threads at a time, rip. I love and miss you ALL terribly! xoxoxo

6/28 - Wow it's been a hot minute since I updated this! Things are 10/10 on the up and up. My posting is someeeeewhat coming back to normal though it reaaaally shouldn't be. I've been procrastinating my wedding planning with charming so in the next two months I need to really focus but for the next... 2 days of June - COME AT ME BROS! Anywho, yes, things are starting to heat up on the planning front and every weekend is cram packed with dress fittings, shoe buying, showers, guest book making, goodie bag planning, sacrificing my soul to my wedding planner and hoping she doesn't quit, + every terrible chore you can imagine that I have put off to the last minute... (rip.) So, I will be attempting to taper back again to something of a real absence but as always I can 100% be tempted to prioritize things! Please hit me up as things come to mind and after this wedding I am coming for some of the new faces/folks I haven't had a thread with in a minute! I miss you peeps<3 xoxoxox HAVE A GREAT JULY and pray for me

8/27/23 - WE ARE IN THE HOME STRETCH f*ckingfinally. As such - this will be the last time I check Charming for a good solid month and a half so I figured I owe you all some updates <3 I will be out of the country from Sept 15 until October 15 and trying not to commit atrocities in these last three weeks leading up. Today I am attempting to slap up some posts for each of my kiddos to save them in the Sept AC but I will kindly ask the staff for a PASS for October since I will well and good off in honeymoon land <3 As for some IC updates since I know a LOT has been happening and I've been desperately trying to keep up but failing:
- Basil, Anthony, and Vince will not be coming out in support of any candidates for the election (because I don't have time to give it proper attention sadly)
- Basil has been sick most of the summer (July+) with some terrible magical flu keeping him happily off the social scene until term starts (at which point I'll make something up and try and retrofit where he's needed)
- Poppy has spent the majority of this season quietly engaged and keeping it to herself (again because I don't have time to give it due attention sadly BUT EXPECT BIG THINGS COME FALL)
- Vince is cursed and still MIA mostly
- Anthony is happily courting @Victoire Malfoy and trying not to propose to her at every turn (again because of me) but is happy to tell anyone who will listen how she is his soulmate just to embarrass her
- Sabine has been floating around this season, rejecting potential suitors as needed <3

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS DRAMA TO END IN MY OWN LIFE SO I CAN COME BACK AND SPEND TIME WITH ALL OF YOU <3 I miss our plots and ideas and there are SO MANY new characters and things to be enthralled by! ( @JESSAMINE PARKINSON looking at you too >>; ) Thank you all for bearing with me and to the staff especially for being so delicate and sweet this year! I'll be back end of October and hopefully for a nice good run! <3333

About the Absence: Just tired because of some personal things. Seems to be no end in sight, so really taking it day by day. Please poke me gently if you want something, but I make no promises on how quickly it will be done.
Let's see: managed to basically dislocate my shoulder after falling down a flight of stairs so my arm is in a sling for the next week or so, have a vacay booked at the beginning of July, and I have an overwhelming amount of doctor's appointments all of July (twice or three times a week, and they are on the other side of the state.) Alas, somewhere in there I need to actually find time to work. Here and there. Will try my best.

Life is busy, but a good busy<3 IYKYK, and it's a very exciting time, but all my time and energy is currently elsewhere. I am trying though! Poke me on Discord if you need something. It might say I'm offline, but it's almost aways a lie Wink

About the Absence: September is going to be moving month. I need to pack, clean and fix up the house, possibly move my stuff twice, move to London, I've got some social things planned and want to host a house cooling party at some point... I may be stress avoiding life through Charming and actually be somewhat on top of stuff, I may be too stressed for muse. I don't know, I hope by assuming the worst I'll actually be surprisingly present. We'll see. I'm also hoping school will give me the structure I need to be consistent again without draining me the way retail did. We shall see! Also I encourage you to prod me once in a while for posts if I'm being slow and you want a reply as long as you're excitedly impatient and not frustratedly impatient. I mean it's fine and understandable if you are the latter but don't let me know about it, otherwise I'll probably guilt spiral into muselessness and then we'll both be sad xD Please manipulate me kindly <3

About the Absence: I'M FINALLY GETTING THEY KEYS TO MY NEW HOME. We've been waiting for 3 years for this ?. It is a new construction house, so need a lot of work: we need to do the walls, the lighting, the garden, the floor, the kitchen, move all the stuff, fix this in the our current rental, etc. etc. On top of that I need to also still (pretend to) work, which means my time and energy will be stretched thin (please send help). I hope to be able to post, but it's gonna be a crazy hectic month. The last two weeks of september I have 2 weeks off, and if the house and moving and everything is done by then I'll be able to post again ❤️.

Name: Bee
August 29th - 31st, I go back for professional development and the days are not quite as long, but I will be busy!

Sept 1st - 4th yay Charming weekend!

Sept 5th - Oct 6th, school!Bee, she doth return and that means I will be EXHAUSTED from going back to work, probably for the entire month of September. I am dog sitting for my mom over Indigenous Peoples weekend, so will A. be alone, and B. have nothing to do, so I expect my grand return about then!

I'll miss you fam ❤️

Adding on September 19th; I have found myself with time/energy/muse on Friday nights and Saturdays, thought this upcoming weekend Sept 23, C has multiple birthday parties and then is staying home with me overnight, so I will have less time. Also on Friday Sept 29 my mom and I are going to a concert and the kids are home all weekend, so I will have drastically less time/energy than usual.

Pass: Yes for September so I'm not pressured
Date Leaving: see above!

About the Absence: I'm starting a new job. <3 Still working for the same place I've been working for since I was 17, but in a shiny new position--so new none of us are 100% sure how it's going to go yet, lol. For added bonus, while I'm learning the ropes I'm also going to be covering some of the work for someone who's going on medical leave, so there might be a lot going on. Or it might be fine. If I go to the trouble of posting an absence, it usually turns out fine, so fingers crossed.

About the Absence: So basically I work 15-hour shifts on Tuesday (9/19) and Thursday (9/21) which eliminates any charming time those days, and historically I fall asleep early the day after (which wipes out Wednesday and Friday, too :P). Saturday I am having a Twilight movie marathon and book club day with my bookseller friends so I will not be around until the evening, but assuming I am not wiped from socializing I should be back that evening!

Edit 9/26: Totally forgot to insert my teeth extractions into this equation. I had two removed yesterday and have spent most of my time in pain or loopy on pain meds, which could probably make for some funny posts if I could grammar without overthinking. I will probably be back by Friday :P
