    First post — sorry for being absent the past week! I’m definitely still here, but the last few days of school have been hectic. Fortunately, tomorrow is my last day ever (woo!) and Friday marks my first and only exam. After that - scot free! Though I’ll be getting a job soon and it may well be full-time.

    Might be absent for a few days while graduation wraps up and my family is in town. Expect posts when I return, though! And hopefully, maybe one or two between now and then. :)

    Hi everyone!

    I've been settling into university quite well, and I'm used to my schedule enough for intermittent posting! Again -- intermittent. My activity will almost certainly vary from week to week, depending upon classes, assignments, appointments, and... yes... parties. Ho boy. I'd really like to prioritize livin' it up at university over my online identity, because I have the rest of my life to enjoy SA and only 4 years~ to experience this setting to the fullest. But, I miss SA. I miss all of you. I've been having progressively more and more impulses to return here, and it's getting too hard to resist.

    Thus, I am lifting my hiatus officially, but leaving my posting regularity sporadic for the time being. I'll let you all know here if I'll be away for an extended time (longer than a week being extended).

    Because I'll be here so sporadically, I want to avoid being in too many plots and threads right now. It wouldn't be fair to the people who want to plot with me, especially as I have the horrible tendency to flake when pressure grows too much. Thus, I'm going to severely restrict my characters to those with the most muse, and I'm going to restrict my threads to those pertaining to plotlines. I apologize to anyone who was hoping to see me make a full return with my cast -- it simply isn't possible right now.

    Most likely, my restrictions will be as follows:

    - Riley will be returning for plots with @WuffyWuff , but will likely be receiving some edits. A few of his elements seem too heavy and pity-reliant for my current tastes as a writer, and others simply feel unnecessary. These edits will pertain only to history, personality and appearance - powers will not be affected and most of his aspects should remain approximately the same.

    - I may incorporate a new character. I have a few ideas, but I've been wanting to break my usual roleplay profile (horrible backstories, complicated powers, overtly attractive/fit physiques, pre-planned emotional journeys surrounding the healing of old scars, etc). I have a few ideas on how to do so, with one standing out more than others. He's a cute little anthropomorphic plant with social anxiety, brought to life by a lonely, good-natured witch. Pansexual and very affectionate, he enjoys social interaction and innocent interaction, and is very pure and sweet.

    - I'm beginning the slow process of revamping Nim (Nimble Vernon Emerson). This will be a lengthy process (as he will be receiving MANY revisions) and not one of my priorities, however, so don't expect to see V.2 Nim for quite some time. His new name will, however, be Lincoln. Link for short. :)

    - I may also bring back Percival (Percival Everest Thatcher). If I do, I will probably restart (not revamp) him, once I reread the rules on the subject (I believe new ones may have been posted during my absence?). This is to be determined and is definitely not a promise.

    If anyone has any special requests for me and/or other news they would like to share, whether or not is related to characters, my PMs are open! I recieve email notifications for PMs on this site, so feel free to message me any time. I love hearing from all of you beautiful people!

    I miss/ed you guys, and I look forward to slowly getting my feet back on the ground! Wish me luck :)
