After doing up the comm and getting it started etc, I really hate to say this, but: I'm leaving.
And Ryou is leaving with me.
It's...I think I'm just not comfortable with the way things are going, administration wise etc. The players have been wonderful, and even though I have not really talked to some of you, you guys are great! I never regretted any application that I accepted, or any player that I needle/cajole/bribe into this RP. But what I feel about role-plays is that it've got to be fun, and part of the fun comes from the unexpectated-ness of things. Whether it's new plot points that the mods introduce, how the characters develop, how the characters introduce new happenings around, and even the unexpectedness of the next tag when we do one-to-one RPs. After all, this is, to me, what a role-play is about. If I want to know what's going to happen next, I could just go back to writing fanfics, right?
Well...that's part of the reason why I'm leaving. I'm not getting that sort of unexpectedness in here anymore. Or the sort of respect that mods and players, players and players should be having. And I'm not referring to the people that I often RP with. Yuushi-mun, Sae-mun, Sushi-mun and Zuka-mun are wonderful people to mesh with.
It's probably just me who is feeling it. So rather than getting myself all wrung up and unhappy and spoiling everybody else's moods, I'm leaving.
Take it as Ryou ran away, or...XD something. I'm still up for a chat on AIM if you want to though. Or if you want to start a private RP journal with me like the one I have with Sae-mun, and the one that I should have with Yuushi-mun (but haven't really started yet...XD), go ahead. My default muse is Ryou, but my mental muse-land has been rather fertile lately. So yeah.
ETA: I'm keeping scarletgypsy
, btw. So just take this journal off your friendslist.
