I saw the cinematic for the new expansion and of course after thinking to myself "How are they going to write their way out of this one?" my thoughts drifted to all of you here and the game itself. Fyf is always "with" me in some way it seems, even when I am away from the game or deeply unhappy with it. I am always thinking of stories I'd like to write, or possibilities for her.
I wanted to apologize for disappearing. I am not going to share a life story here, or ask for sympathy, but I struggle with severe depression among other things. I disappear sometimes, sometimes for a week, sometimes for months, sometimes even more. I know it is not acceptable, and I have lost my fair share of friends to this. It is not fair to others, and so I want to personally apologize to Asvi, Ellii, Feyawen, Shaureyne, Athaea, and anyone else who shared time RP'ing with me. I hope you do not feel it was a waste.
That being said, it is a part of who I am. I have tried to make promises to others before that I won't ever fall off the radar again, and I end up breaking them. It hurts them further, and I do not wish to add injury to an already delicate situation. Just know that I never joined with any other emotion but sincerity. Fyf meant what she said at her initiation, and she already cared deeply for more than a few of you. Please don't hold my own issues against her.
I hope you are all well, and that your adventures and creativity never run dry.
I hope that you are doing well, in whatever endeavors you've been striving toward. I also wish to assure you know that there are no ill-feelings. We all need to take a break from time to time, and it's 100% okay, and healthy to do so. Nobody will fault you for that. Initially, when you took a leave of absence without word we were concerned for your well-being, and attempted to reach out. When we did not hear, we assumed you simply chose to move on from the game.
I am pleased to hear Fyfaesia and her story is still in your heart and mind, and we welcome you to bring her around to our content anytime the mood strikes. As always, our door is open. ♥️
