First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

The last time I lost a character in an AC unintentionally was Ixion Swift in April of 2012. I've always preferred to have a smaller group of more active characters, and I've been pretty good at managing my own activity levels and scaling back when I need to. This past summer things have sort of spiraled, though. I get online and owe All The Posts, and I'll go through and knock out a significant number of them - all except one or two characters, say. Then I'll come in the next week and do the same thing, so I feel like I'm managing it and then all of the sudden I get to a character that I haven't cycled through recently and realize all their threads are dead/a day or three away from dying.

It's not even boring threads or characters I'm lacking muse for (because I am totally guilty of 'forgetting' to reply to threads when they are unamusing and just keep dragging on, sometimes >>). I get to that character's threadlog and I literally didn't realize it had been a month since I posted them until I see the dates on their threads. Where is all this time going?

Anyway, it's just a fluke of dates that I haven't lost folks in ACs so far this summer and I'm not looking forward to breaking my record, but it seems inevitable at this point.

It's also making me very hesitant to revive anyone... like I want Tib back soon, but a part of my brain is scoffing and saying 'you think you're going to keep Tiberius active (who historically has the least going on of any LynnCharacter at any given time) when you're letting Lyra's threads die? Come on, now.'


is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?

When I made Ellsworth I had planned to hold off until the holiday break. As much as I wanted a Hogwarts professor I didnt want to keep adding characters willy nilly and suddenly neglect someone. That was before I realized I had 13 characters after Hudson. I was so worried about the unlucky 13 cast I had that I wrote Ellsworth up immediately.

Now my problem is when I retired Ri I'll be in the same boat.

So I had a really vivid dream recently where characters were living their lives but I could hear the "narration" (me & friends writing them) playing over their day to day lives. I think it's my subconscious telling me I need more Charming time xD

I sometimes find myself daydreaming about the way a thread might go, and if there's ever dialogue in it, it's followed by dialogue tags as if it was a written piece rather than, say, a movie xD
