The Last Of Us

I've been pretty busy these last few weeks, while at the same time trying my best to take some time off.

Apparently, time off is a good thing. Time off is necessary. We released The Maleficent Seven at the start of the year, and we're gearing up to the release of Last Stand of Dead Men in EXACTLY one month's time. That's two books out in the same year, one written straight after the other, not to mention one or two other short stories for various things yet to be announced. So I've pretty much been working nonstop since November of 2012. Wow. When I say it like that, I suddenly start to feel very tired...

I'm still waiting to hear back from Harper Collins on things like the back cover reveal, and possibly putting up a sample chapter or two. I also need to pick a date for a VERY informal reader get-together in Dublin over the next few weeks. When I said I'd do this back in April I had no idea I'd be so busy, so hopefully I'll still be able to fit it in. Oh, and in a matter of days I'll be posting the tour schedule for LSODM, which will be kicking off at the Edinburgh Book Festival on August 25th- where copies of the new book WILL be on sale.

I normally HATE early releases, but seeing as how it's only a difference of four days PLUS the fact that the Edinburgh audience never reveal spoilers, I don't mind this at all.

Er... I think I've strayed from the point of this Blog entry... what was it again?

Yes! Time off! That's it!

So, I haven't ACTUALLY been able to take any time off, but then I've never been one for taking holidays. However, I have managed to watch a few movies in the evenings, and watch a few TV shows to relax, and to play a few video games. And THAT is the point of this Blog entry.

Over the past few months, I've played two very good games. Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider. I've talked about these games in an earlier post. Of the two, I preferred Tomb Raider. It just felt more visceral. The gameplay was excellent, the atmosphere was amazing, and the tension was nerve-shredding. But apart from all that, it was the character work that stood out. Tiny emotions flickering across Lara Croft's face, paired with such wonderful voice acting, meant that I really cared about her. I liked her, and I didn't want anything bad to happen to her. In contrast to the gritty, naturalistic world of Tomb Raider, Bioshock was hugely imaginative fun with great gameplay, stunning visuals, and a great supporting character. The best supporting character in video games, I reckoned.

And then came The Last Of Us.

The Last Of Us is survival horror. 20 years after the outbreak of a fungal virus that latches onto a person's mind and drives them insane, the world is in ruins. Survivors gather in quarantined cities. Life is miserable. Life is cheap. Death is quick, cruel, and common. But outside the walls of the cities, it's even worse. That's where the Infected roam.

(A fungal virus sounds pretty laughable, right? Type 'Cordyceps' in to any search engine. Read up on what it does to ants. Now imagine what it'd do to people.)

You control Joel, a man in his 50s who has to escort Ellie, a 14 year old girl, across America. They go from city to town to suburb to countryside to mountains, and not only do they have to avoid the Infected, they have to avoid most of the other survivors as well. Because these are NOT nice people.

This is a game that combines the best elements of both Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite. The world is grim and gritty but so, so beautiful. Lush greenery spills up from cracked cement. The sky is a million shades of orange at dusk. But the action is brutal. And the supporting character is astonishing.

Play this game for a few hours and you'll start to really care about Joel and Ellie. Play it for a few hours more and you'll find yourself terrified. You'll hear the clicking of the Infected around you as you crouch in the darkness, and you'll freeze in fear. Why? Because you want to keep Ellie safe. That's ALL you'll care about.

This is one of the best games I've ever played. Is it the most fun? No, that'd probably go to one of the Uncharted games, just for sheer entertainment. But this is definitely the scariest, the most tense, and the most involving. It sucks you in and it doesn't let you go. This is a masterpiece of gaming that will be used as a benchmark for all games that come after, and as a piece of storytelling it succeeds where so many other stories fail.

It's brilliant. If you're over 18, then ready yourself, and go play it.

*turns around* Alexis, please- don't fight until you have to. He's hard to beat. You will need your energy

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*stares at Alex*

Woah. You did not DARE go after a small eleven year old kid.

THAT'S LIKE LOUIS KISSING PERRIE. IT AIN'T RIGHT.

Ya know what, kill me. I don't really care any more, to be honest, and if I die while saving someone's life, maybe I'll get something like concert tickets in heaven or something. *shrugs*

Do your worst.

Come. At. Me.

Aretha Tesla said...

Yes, Dwyer, I am fully aware that politics is just something we made up, as are laws. As is order. I get that. But that doesn't mean you should kill people. What are you trying to accomplish?

Maralie Lily Charm said...

((*hums* White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes...))

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

I dedicate this page to protecting the lives of the innocent. I made a vow to protect the mortals from magic and to protect people from lunatics out there in the magical world so I plan to do so.

I have another dedication to two people. People I say, Aretha Tesla and Niccolo Croatoan. These people have enlightened my eyes to life and I am amazed. Aretha has proved that no person is a character they are their own person. Niccolo is not a character he is a person as he should be. I have learned to appreciate so much in life because of these people. And I do not regret my choice to befriend both of these people. They are like family to me.

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*snarls, pulling her sword back, ready to strike* *murmurs* I'm getting my blood back

Aretha Tesla said...

HEY GUYS. HOW ABOUT WE FIGURE OUT WHAT'S GOING ON- USE OUR WORDS- BEFORE WE ALL START KILLING EACH OTHER?

#ChaseForBook9

((Fabi)) said...

An eleven-year-old girl. How powerful you are to dare go after someone like that.

[Yawns]

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

Because of the chaos. The Order will fall. This world will hardly be a planet, and maelstrom will wreak havoc and mayhem.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Nobody is touching my kid and living to see tomorrow.

((Fabi)) said...

(([Hugs Mara] Have you heard Birdy's version of that song? [cries]))

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla said...

Fabi, *hugs* you are awesome. Just, please, continue to be you. *hugs again*

Alex Gauntlet said...

-teleports behind Alexis, and holds the blade up to her neck-

If anyone moves, her head comes off. That's all I need. Her head. I could skin her face if you wanted. Or you could let me take her away, and let her maintain her head. Move. I dare you.

Aretha Tesla said...

Oh, right, your name is Alex now. Or are you a different person...? Sorry, I'm just a little confused. Either way, what are you on about?

#ChaseForBook9

Jubilance Glee said...

*Eyes widen* Alex...

Maralie Lily Charm said...

((No I haven't, Fab :P I'll look it up tomorrow morning, if I can find my headphones :)))

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*stares coldly at him* Don't you dare hurt my niece

Alexis said...

*closes eyes and rams foot into his groin and then takes a knife and stabs the inner leg of Alex* let. go. of. me.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*teleports* *shoots Alex back with light* *grabs Alexis* *teleports back*

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

-smiles- Remember? This world is based on Deception

-flips around, taking the beautiful head of Alexis-

Niccolò Croatoan said...

*appears behind Alex, knife pressed against his neck* Move. I dare you.

#ChaseForBook9

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*calmly* As I said, Alex. You can have me. But don't you dare hurt my friends.

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

-bows down- thank you all.

-teleports away-

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Javier: *focuses on Alex* (locked in your own nightmare so that you cannot use any sense because all are in the nightmare

Jubilance Glee said...

wait..

Did Alex just leave...?

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*glances at her watch*

*waits*
*a signal comes in from the tracking device that was attached to the oyster bed*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

MY DAUGHTER YOU BASTARD YOU GOD DAMNED BASTARD YOU KILLED MY DAUGHTER!!!!!!!!! *has gone from sane to asylum insane*

Niccolò Croatoan said...

I hope you realized you have accomplished nothing. Unless you only meant to aggravate us. Maralie went away with Alexis before you could behead her.

*backs away as her signal focuses in on Alex* Come on, come on... *glances at Zafira*
*looks back at the phone*

Jubilance Glee said...

wait.. what exactly happened? Did Alexis die or..?

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*is shaking* oh thank god...oh thank god...*is shaking* I order the immediate arrest of Alex Gauntlet for attempted murder, attempted kidnapping, and assault on an Elder

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*hands Zaf Alexis* I saved her. I think. Unless she's suffering from trauma.

Sorry, not helping.

#ChaseForBook9

Glow, for some reason: [Singsong voice] Alylum insane is what he wa-ants!

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*hugs Alexis close closing eyes and taking a deep breath*

((Fabi)) said...

Glow again: [Blinks] You just saved her life and you call that "not helping"? O.O

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Also charge him on taking my blood, because I really want that back. *hits her phone, wandering off into the forest* How did he even get to Corfu...?

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Well, I'll be leaving again now. *vanishes*

#ChaseForBook9

Alexis said...

Did I do okay? Did I actually defend myself? *looks worried* I did do what I should if someone was gonna kidnap me right?

Alex Gauntlet said...

-sends painful messages into Alexis' brain-

You are not safe, little lady. I will come back for you. And I'll make it hurt. Don't you worry. And tell your mother that her puny sanctuary has just been invaded. Goodbye.

-sends one last extremely painful pulse into Alexis' brain-

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*looks at Glow*
There's a difference between "saving" and "helping".

*looks away*

*teleports*

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*jumps through, closing it out of habit*

ALEX

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*holds her sword out in front of her, walking through the halls* That Rat bastard...

Alexis said...

*cries out screaming* NICCOLO HELP ME...HE'S IN MY HEAD!!

((Fabi)) said...

(( [hugs Mara] ))

(( Msd soon, more monotony ))

((There's a rabbit about ten feet away, looking at me funny.))

#ChaseForBook9

Jubilance Glee said...

Alexis..? You OK?

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*quietly* Someone set a wall in her mind before I kill that bastard. *draws knife and speaks in an icy calm voice* Whoever kills Alex will be free of charge of murder you have my oath.

Alexis said...

*shakes head* Alex....in...my...head...pain...*starts crying from shock*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

((A rabbit?))

((Mam ran over a rabbit today. It was depressing :/))

*stares at Alexis from tree* *runs hand through now-short hair*

Oh, God, what am I doing to myself... *whimpers*

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*walks around the corner to see bodies- lots of bodies*

Oh no.... Oh God please- *kneels next to the cold for of Zachariah, a Mage she knew*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*hugs close* he isn't here Alexis its okay shhh you're safe now. we'll stop him. nothings gonna harm you not while i'm around

((Fabi)) said...

((Yeah, a rabbit. A brown one, a wild one. It blinked at me and wiggled its nose))

((D: Yeah...))

((Not trying to ignore the plot, but can't help Alexis))

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*gives Alexis to Javier and goes through portal and nearly screams* Adra...do a search find any of the living.

Aretha Tesla said...

Alexis, try to calm down. You know a little bit of mind reading, right? Keep this in mind- when somebody comes into your head, it's always a two way connection. You can see into his mind whenever he pokes into yours.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

How- *looks at Zaf* You need to stay with Alexis.

Aretha Tesla said...

((Sorry, I have to go now! Be back in 2 hours!))

#ChaseForBook9

Alexis said...

Okay..*takes deep breath* I'm focusing on his mind. I am...he did attack the Sanctuary...bodies lots of them. Many many dead.

Alex Gauntlet said...

-talks from an unknown place-

Do you enjoy seeing her in pain? I hope so, because it's not about to end. Now... I have a... house, I suppose one could say. No one knows where it is, what it looks like, or who's in it. I'm just gonna go ahead and invite Alexis over, okay? Okay. I might just... You know.. Give her some chips, strap her to a metal bench, torture her a little bit. You know. The usual. Bye bye!

-teleports behind Alexis, covering her mouth with a cloth dipped in chloroform- -teleports away with a sleeping Alexis, to an unknown place that CANT BE TRACKED WITH SOME STUPID DEVICE BECAUSE OF AN "OYSTER BED"-

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

'ello all!!!

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

No Adra. I have my own duties to attend to. Javier and everyone else has her. I need to be here for the sake of my people. Whoever is alive.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

((Awh. Cute rabbit.))

((I know :( poor rabbit.))

*lies back* *tumbles out of tree* *yelps* *hits the ground hard*
*doesn't move*

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

-laughs- Adra, maybe you should have said that a little earlier. -straps Alexis to metal bench, and brings out a table of tools, and I start making incisions- She can't feel this. Yet.

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*Feels for energy*
No... Everyone- *takes off down the hallways down a confusing flight of stairs and a zigzag hallway* *kneels next to the girl, ripping off her coat, pressing it to the wound against her side, lifting her head up* Hey, it's okay. Shhh...

Jubilance Glee said...

Uh-oh..


SNOW!!!!! *Supermegatacklehugsofdoom*


HAAII!!!

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Yeah well fuck you too, Alex.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*goes back to Blogland and collapses to floor* FIND HER!!!!!! GOD DAMN IT FIND HER!!!!!

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Hey jubi!! What's going on...?

Jubilance Glee said...

Zaf... We don't know where to start!

Alex Gauntlet said...

-cuts open Alexis, and takes out her stomach-

Jubilance Glee said...

Alex is trying to kill Alexis for some reason

Jubilance Glee said...

Oh God...

Alex Gauntlet said...

-cuts open stomach-

What were YOU eating? -giggles, and continues to cut out her organs-

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*looks at the haunted girl's eyes as she chokes, blood pouring from the side of her mouth, then her muscles relax, her mind dead*
Oh gods...

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Yeah well him doing that isn't exactly right. I didn't want my kid character involved in being tortured because she is 11 and I don't want that.

Alex Gauntlet said...

-cuts one of her vital arteries-

My. She is certainly going to have a fun time when she wakes up.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*murmurs*

Dammit...something's going to go wrong. I can feel it...

*teleports beside Adra*
Hey.

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

-teleports Alexis back into Blogland, three quarters of her organs moving, and she wakes up-

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Yup... well, it isn't bloglad if someone isn't trying to kill someone else

God dam internet.... msd

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*stands up, covered in the girl's blood, setting her coat over the girl's form* We have to keep going. Maybe- just maybe there's someone else- we might get a lead on Alex.

Jubilance Glee said...

*Covers mouth* Oh my god...

Alex Gauntlet said...

-starts making an incision on her forehead- Ugh. Stop squealing.

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*eyes widen* Mara, get to Blogland. Get to Blogland now- Alexis. I can feel her energy you have to help stop it.

Alexis said...

(im not reacting because you didn't even kidnap me correct. first off Javier was holding me. so how can you take me without letting him fight, second you didn't ask permission from Zafira to do this in the roleplay which as you can see she did not want and you didn't leave anyone a chance to fight back. so I refuse to react to you)

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

*stomach heaves *

Jubilance Glee said...

Get away you bastard! *chucks knife at Alex*

Alex Gauntlet said...

-gets annoyed, and pulls her heart out, her squealing immediately stopping-

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*pulls out her phone again, moving for the jail cells- where there seems to be a lot of energy*

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

((I take it this is not planned???))

Jubilance Glee said...

((No I don't think so...))

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Adra, I...

I can't be the hero. I'm sorry.

You can hate me. But I can't.

*teleports away*

#ChaseForBook9

Alexis said...

No it isn't. and he isn't even letting me react. he keeps godmodding me and its highly annoying

Alex Gauntlet said...

-sighs, and places hands behind my head, kneeling down onto the ground-
I plead guilty for the assault of a Grand Mage, attempt to kidnap the Grand Mages daughter, attempted homicide, attempted thievery and terrorism.

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

((Did anyone end up sorting out the ghost problem I left you with yesterday?? Sorry about that, BTW))

Jubilance Glee said...

((I don't think so.. xP))

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Oh. And stealing my blood. Don't forget that.

*walks into the jail- with all the cells open, the inmates standing in the middle, rallying*
*curses, backing out, slamming the door, and running*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*handcuffs him* you mean the charge of kidnapping because apparently you did kidnap her.

Alex Gauntlet said...

Is... Is anyone going to arrest me?

Alex Gauntlet said...

Ah yes. It would appear so.

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

+looks at Alex* huh? Oh, yeah... I guess we should... *shrugs*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

And Alex...I don't mind if you wanted to kidnap her but let her react and not godmod her. She is her own person and is capable of reacting as such.

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*turns around the corner, hearing the inmates* Shit shit shit shit.

*runs into a closet, locking the door behind her* And I can't even arrest people anymore... Or have my Elder title... *growls* That's just damn inconvenient.

Aretha Tesla said...

((Sorry, but it's true- there are lines you can't cross... You can't kill other people's characters without their permission.))

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

(Yep. I did feel extremely overpowered through that whole shennanigan, I'll make sure I give people time to react-

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

((I am solo not used to blogging on a tablet...))

*hums a song*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*appears in front of everyone, kneeling and head down*

#ChaseForBook9

Aretha Tesla said...

((Still not here, either, sorry. I just had 2 seconds to ghost and had to say something.))

#ChaseForBook9

Alex Gauntlet said...

(Also, I just wanted to ask, who is Alexis? I know that she's Zafira's daughter, but who sits at the computer and actually types for her?)

Jubilance Glee said...

(( I think Zaf does that))

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

(Thank you. And if you want to break free you can but make sure you allow the person whom you attack time to react, and ask permission as Aretha pointed out before you kill a character. I'm willing to have Alexis still have the injuries you caused so long as you promise to allow people reaction time in the future and to not godmod a character,)

Jubilance Glee said...

((Just like Ari is also Niccolo))

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*roots around in a box, pulling out a pair of twin revolvers and extra ammo, carrying as many weapons as she can*
*takes a deep breath*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

(I do. I am currently roleplaying as her and myself. not extremely easy because my iPOd wont connect to wifi that exsists but it says it doesn't)

Alex Gauntlet said...

-flips out the phial of Adra's blood, and very carefully pours the thick liquid into my mouth- -throws the phial away, and smiles, a secret plan up my sleeve-

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

((Area... where are you ATM?? I could help if you want....))

Jubilance Glee said...

*frowns* What... what did he just do..?

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

*stairs* he... he just drank blood... ick

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*kicks the door open, slipping out and down the hallway again*
*freezes* that energy.... *shakes her head* Worry about that later.
*sees an inmate and ducks behind a wall*

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Come Alex I will take you to the holding cells where you will await the verdict of the Council of Elders in America.

Alex Gauntlet said...

(I'm so sorry about godmodding. It seems to be a habit that I fail to eradicate, but I promise I won't do it anymore. If I do, please tell me. Seems I'm still a bit of a newbie.)

Jubilance Glee said...

Well yeah I saw THAT...

but what does it MEAN??

Like... how does that help him with whatever it is he's going to do...?

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

(It's fine Alex. I don't mind helping out newbies because I was one too you know.)

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

I don't know, jubi, maybe he was just trying to gross us out...?

Alex Gauntlet said...

-sends signal to the people in the Sanctuary to call them off, and almost simultaneously, every enemy that Adra is fighting teleports away-

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*sees the inmate kneel down, and begin to lap up the blood of another mage, before beginning to bite their arm*
*gags, before turning, throwing a knife where it lands in its back, and he falls*
*pulls back again*

Alexis said...

*wakes up screaming* HELP ME!!! *is losing too much blood and is almost dead*

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*frowns* What?

*Steps out, still ready to fight* Wha-?

Jubilance Glee said...

Oh god.. *Runs over to Alexis*
*Doesn't know what to do*

Alex Gauntlet said...

-another phial of a glowing neon blue falls out of my sleeve-

Give this to her. It's like your stupid green medicine leaves but better. Much better.

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

*looks at Alexis* want me to get her to a hospital??

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

(Yes wifi is now working!!!)

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*gives vial to Alexis* good girl. Drink it.

Jubilance Glee said...

*eyes phial*
You expect us to believe you?

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*walks into the foyer in a circle, looking around* But- this place...

WHERE THE FUCK DID MY INMATES GO

Alex Gauntlet said...

It should stop the bleeding. As for the missing organs... -giggles away- You'll have to figure that one out for yourself. It would appear that my contract is broken... For now. The girl lives to see the light of day once more.

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Gay!!! Okay, wbd for a while, moving to a computer

Jubilance Glee said...

Apparently we are

Okeydoke

Alexis said...

*drinks the vial still really weak* (it will work correct?

Alex Gauntlet said...

(Yep. No poison, it's what I said it was)

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*growls* I don't like this one bit...

And we have to go to a new post soon

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Jubilance Glee said...

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*pulls out her phone, dialing a number* *waits*

Alex Gauntlet said...

-smiles, knowing that there's a waterproof tracking microchip now in her body- (I can say that and still have none of your characters know, yes?)

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*shakes head* *gasps* *eyes go back to normal*

No... Stop it. Stop it! *cries*

*eyes go red again* *stands up slowly*

#ChaseForBook9

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

*grabs alex*

Alex Gauntlet said...

-smiles, thinking if it'll be that easy-

Alex Gauntlet said...

Well, will someone take me to a cell?

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*they pick up*

Yes- hello? Yes. We might have a situation here.... Uh-huh. Well, for starters everyone's dead. We have a murderous psychopath out there, and all the inmates are gone

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

*takes to the Sanctuary in the South and locks in a holding cell* yo will await verdict (Alex there are 3 American Sanctuaries so i assume the main one was attacked, Derek soecified that we hae 3

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Maralie Lily Charm said...

I'm sick and tired of trying to get noticed here. Jubi's the only one here who noticed me trying to add my own subplot.

Bye. I'm leaving. I don't even know why I started roleplaying in the first place.

And I bet you'll ignore this comment too.

And don't give me excuses saying, "oh, I didn't see your comment" or "I was too busy with my other plot" because I just realised how the non-roleplayers feel, and damn does it suck.

No wonder everyone's leaving.

Death Rose said...

Ah... It seems as though I got metal in my eyes... Ow...

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

The Empress Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*blinks, standing outside of Alex's cell*

*picks up the keys* What are you doing

Death Rose said...

Mara... *Face falls* I'm sorry... Even if I wasn't here, I'm sorry... Please, stay... Please... *Has actually started crying irl*

Alex Gauntlet said...

Mara. Don't. :(

You're what makes this blog kinda fun. Who knows what we'd do without your annoying public displays of affection for One Direction?

LDH Cake said...

So r bow ties

Alexis said...

No we're NOT ignoring you its just people keep getting mad and don't listen. Sometimes adding a subplot needs to be done not smack in the middle of something, that's why people don't get involved because its a lot to go into a main and sub plot.

Snow Stormberg~ the Fez wearing Lunatic #ChaseForBook9 said...

Jubi, we need to do something other than sitting about, what do you wanna do?
