It is close to being a full year. I've had a lot of fun on here with you guys, but it is becoming increasingly apparent to me that I shouldn't still be here. When I joined, I was able to get to know so many of you so fast, mainly because my job at the time allowed me enough opportunity to do so. When I lost that I had a job where the hours were long on two days and the rest were free for me to play. Now that I have this job, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, midnight to 7 am, aka the hours everyone else is asleep. I've felt more and more disconnected to the site. Even when eventually I was able to start bringing my laptop to work, I didn't feel like I used to only being able to be here 4 hours a day with 15 minute gaps every hour, using my days off to catch up on the few threads I still had. And the disconnect was very apparent last night. I angered my favorite player on here. I understand completely what you meant and I never meant for it to sound like I was forcing it on you.
You guys have all been wonderful friends, I'm tearing up while typing this here at work. I'm not going to return any time soon. Mostly because I don't want to give you half-flanked energy. You all are awesome players and I really enjoyed my time here. But this is a post just to let you know why I'm not here. I won't see any comments as replies to it. Kinda like when I say brb, I don't sit around and wait for tyt or hbs. Well gtg, later.
Whether or not you will ever read this, I feel obligated for friendship's sake to reply. You are making a mistake. This clearly isn't something you have been considering, for no one puts work into apping a character when they're not planning to come back. Take 24 hours to think about it, if for no other reason than the fact that your leaving affects those wonderful friends you made.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't allow yourself the opportunity to step away if you really don't have the time or energy. You just owe it to your friends not to make the decision too quickly.
Regarding angering one of your favorite people: Will, you are a fine roleplayer, and a good friend. My getting mad (for I imagine it is me you are referring to) does not mean I want you to vanish off into the sunset forever. It does not mean I don't want to roleplay with you. I got angry because you were making decisions regarding my character and what she would do. I was not mad because you wanted to roleplay with me. I was mad because you were planning out how it would go, and your ideas were based on my character taking specific actions, and you didn't even ask my advice ("Do you think X would possibly do this?") or permission ("Could X please do this so Y and Z can meet?") before it was almost decided. You were, in effect, going to power-play an entire thread with my character. That's why I got mad. It's a good reason to get mad. But that doesn't mean I don't like you. Or that we're suddenly not friends.
I really don't like that you're choosing this moment to leave. I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, and believe its really because you feel disconnected, tired, and too busy and goodness knows you have reason to feel all of those... a full time job is no joke- But I wish you would have made a genuine effort to resolve this first. I wish you'd take some time to think if this is really the note you want to leave on.
Again, maybe this post is hopeless, because you'll never see it. But I had to try. For Friendship's sake.
I came home today and this popped up since it was the last page on my browser. Before I say anything else I just want to warn you, yes I am upset, but not at any of you or this situation. I can't even tell you about why I'm upset and that upsets me more, so please don't take anything I may say as me being angry at anyone.
Concerning the Luna part. I did originally start the conversation with asking if Luna would. The "So, costume party?" was because the conversation shifted away from it and I didn't see an answer confirming or denying it as a feasable idea. I was just trying to bring it back up so I could get an answer.
And the decision was not solely because of this one time. Nor is it individually any one reason. Each weighs about 10 pounds. And when they gather that becomes a lot of weight. But after the events that happened irl after I posted that and because you are a good friend and I do listen to the advice of good friends. I will stay this decision until Thursday. I suddenly have today off and alot of punching to do at the gym. So I won't be here at all.
I know we haven't been been rp'ing long, but I enjoyed the thread we had. It was great having Twilight's dad save her from the nightmare (although I apologize if some of my posts were bad).
But back to the matter at hand: I currently am working anywhere from 30-40 hours a week, 5 days a week, due to the fact my supervisor is recovering from surgery. I'm still here, even though I haven't been posting recently (trying to find plots and ideas for Twilight mostly). But just because I haven't been posting doesn't mean I'm gonna take a hike; maybe somewhere down the road they'll plot with you and such. Heavens knows we can always do more Twilight/Nightlight threads...or if Twilight visits the Crystal Empire before Twi's 'alicorning', she could always run into Flash and 'forget' who he was or something.
Plenty of options, so please don't leave! We'll miss you too much! *hugs tightly*
If you read this, I just wanna say that I hope you stick around too. I understand if you don't—if you don't feel it anymore, it'd be super unfair of me to ask you to stay anyway, and goodness knows IRL can be a big butt in the face. But... heck, I just like having you around, you know? I know we haven't had a thread together or talked all that much, but you've always been a funny, pleasant presence around here, and you're a heck of a dedicated roleplayer.
I guess I'm just saying... I'd be sad to see you go, and I really hope you're able to stay. If not, no hard feelings—but I wanted to make that clear. Either way, I wish the best for ya, and I hope everything going on in your life steadies out soon! <3
I guess I really can't be away from here. Even with all that is going on. Last night after I left the site, there was a situation at work that left me raging mad. I went to a gym and punched a bag until the patch job broke and sand started spilling out. I went to sleep because I still had to go to work, called and said they couldn't cover my shift. Had a horrifying nightmare. And I was just plain angry during the first half of my shift. It is just a little bit ago I realized what coming here does against all that weight. I feel lighter being on here. I can forget all the bad stuff while I'm here, which admittedly has become much shorter. So, I guess the only way I'm going now is death or ban. You guys are stuck with me and you can blame Coffee XP
The Fun Has Been Doubled! is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic moderate-to-advanced forum roleplay. Set after the events of the fifth season, we currently have no overarching plot. Instead, we simply have created the world of Equestria for you as a giant playground to have fun in and to explore the magic of friendship. Canon characters and original characters are available for you to play as, both ponies and non-pony species alike! Just remember that we are account-per-character and we'll be fine!
So why don't you stay for a while, look around, and let us know if we should get a welcome party started for you.
