Hiatus

I've pretty much just still been (slowly) catching up with old threads lately -- and thank you, friends, for your patience with me -- but I should go hiatus-y for a bit now.

Calling retroactive hiatus because everything has been conspiring against me on the RP front. (I seriously have been planning multiple attempts to post, like, three different posts over the past few weeks and was suddenly defeated by reality at every turn.)

Hopefully, things should be better by the end of this weekend. Apologies for dropping threads, and I'll do my best to pick them up when I'm back because you have been saints for sticking with me that long and deserve at least that much.

Okay going to continue trying not to throw up now.

In the northeast, prepping for Hurricane Sandy today! And we'll see what ends up happening.


ETA: A few Really Big Things Knocked Down By Wind, but not much else in the downtown area. Biggest impact on me has been all of the time that I spent prepping for the storm. And also scheduling around other people's things being rescheduled. So I might be a little scarce while getting things back on schedule, but otherwise, nothing much here.

Step in and do our show, they said.

It'll be fun, they said.

Okay, so it is fun, but I've also been working pretty much straight through from 4pm-3am for the past week -- plus classes during the day.

Getting ready for the final performance right now. I am so looking forward to getting back to RPing. And also sleeping. And maybe even showering. I know, I know, crazy talk.

This is just an apology post for having been MIA lately for longer than originally predicted. Debilitating allergies went straight into the beginning of the school year, which is always a killer that I always underestimate. Hopefully will be getting my head back into the game in the next week or so. I plan to pick up dropped threads, but no pressure/expectations of reciprocation, as I know that they are pretty ancient at this point.

It seems like every time I go back home, the internet has gotten slower/more unreliable. I'm not sure if this is fact or just me developing unreasonable hopes/deliberately misremembering past experience.

Anyhow, what this means is that I will be super extremely very spotty in picking up old threads -- I still have the notifs staring at me and want to get back to them, it's just extremely technologically frustration -- and will be very sparse when it comes to starting new threads. This is going to be my life for about a week.

(I do have a post or two that I want to run before school starts up again, so I might crazily try running one during this time, but that will be a severely slow, isolated process.)

So we were closing up our summer season, and then I got sick. Not that my not being around is all that notable, but it's likely that you'll be seeing me around (on chat and the like) but not being all that... active for a bit, as my brain is somewhere on Mars. I'll be getting back to things as soon as I can.
mind_over_metal: (I'm having soul pains)
So because my body hates me, I've ended up with what seems to be a permanent headache for an indefinite period of time. It's been a few days now, and my reserves for activities requiring certain types of brain activity (such as that required for reading and writing) are sitting at a low level. Additionally, I will be out and about this entire coming weekend for some friends' wedding.

As a result, I'll be spotty! People with whom I have threads, I very much have been wanting to pick up all of them, but my brain has been a writhing, whining brat. I'm going to do my best to keep picking at them! And if anyone wants to start a new thread, please feel free to gchat/message/e-mail me, but I'm unlikely to be doing much jumping for the foreseeable future.

Thank you ♥

Oh my god, I still exist. And so! De-hiatusing Enjolras, Maladict, Tatsumi, Takeuchi Sora, Van Grants, Captain Jack Harkness and Rorschach over the next few days. Charles is still inna-coma'd while we find out if his husband did any serious structural damage to the hospital and/or hospital employees.

For the next couple months, my general availability will be from about 10:00pm-12:00am EST, pretty much every night. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less and there will doubtlessly be days here and there when I'm not around, but that's the general picture of things. I do have some flexibility, so if there's something going on at other times or if your availability is at another time and you'd like a chunk of thread-time together, just let me know and I'll see if I can be there for it.

Woo-hoo! Good to be back!
mind_over_metal: (foe yay)
Okay, so on the one hand, the show that I'm working right now is relatively easy, so that's great.

On the other hand, we just started in our regular rehearsal room this week -- we were off-site last week -- and it's a big room with white walls that is lit entirely with fluorescent lights.

So basically, while I'm not getting home very late, I am getting home and feeling like absolute crap. Headache, nausea, exhaustion and, unsurprisingly, very little RP stamina. I'm going to see what I can do about this -- changing up my playing style/strategy/schedule to something that will work with the situation -- but I'm going to be pretty irregular while I work this out. Apologies for multitudinous placeholders and taking a really long time to get back to threads.

And now I'm sick. Again. Probably partially thanks to my last status report.

This is bullshit.

Enjolras/Maladict/Tatsumi/Takeuchi Sora/Van Grants/Rorschach/Captain Jack Harkness/Charles Xavier who swears that they actually do play here when they're not running a fever or otherwise incapacitated

Sorry -- my dog died. Not up to it. Be back at some point.
mind_over_metal: (Default)
I could have handled being sick or I could have handled being in tech for a small show, but I've been doing sick and in tech at the same time, which kind of eliminates the possibility of RP.

Be back soon, when I will both not be in tech and also hopefully have regained control of my body temperature.
mind_over_metal: (X)
And then I spent most of the past couple of days basically passed out asleep from PMS.

Will pick up with Charles's post and getting the others back into play hopefully very soon!

This is a post in Two Parts.




Part 1

Here's the story, boys and girls:

Starting today, I'm plunging into the depths of my biggest SMing mission thus far in my career. Done bigger shows before! But not with me in charge.

So Enjolras/Maladict/Tatsumi/Takeuchi Sora/Van Grants/Rorschach/Captain Jack Harkness/Charles Xavier will be hiatused. For a while. I will continue threads that I already have going, but it will probably be at a rate of about one reply every 1-2 days. Though if you see me around, I am always up for terrible cameos, of course.

And here's the thing -- I'm in rehearsal for two weeks, but then the school has winter break. So I will hiatused from now until Saturday, December 17. Then I'll be around for the rest of December, with some holiday busy-ness.

And then I am going to fucking disappear for the month of January. As in making a comm post where all of my characters have turned into Russian stacking dolls or something, so that I'm not even tempted.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU WANT HIJINKS WITH ME AT ANY POINT BEFORE FEBRUARY 2012, HIT ME UP DECEMBER 18-31.




Part 2

So this happened between Charles and Erik on November 30. It was non-isolated and heated enough that you don't need to have super-hearing ahemJulian to be aware that there was some... shouting.

Also, Charles would have been really punching the shit out of things in his training with Babs the next morning, so his hands will have been looking kind of beat-up during the first week of December.

HIATUS

Heading into tech/performance! Will be gone from now until next Saturday night.

Also, I realize and apologize that I effectively ended up being on hiatus this past week. Work/school ended up throwing me unexpectedly under the bus to the point of multiple near mental breakdowns, and the fact that it was only "near" was largely in thanks to self-medication, i.e. well, that sure was drinking straight out of that bottle of tequila, wasn't it. Red thread folks, I would love to pick things up with you! I just... won't be that good at it this week, either.

If I have the time, I might end up popping into things here and there. I just don't anticipate that as being likely. As per usual, I'll still be hanging out in chan and such.

Unexpected hiatus from now, Monday 10/10 through Saturday 10/16. Because I'm a good friend and a reliable professional or something. And this is apparently what happens when I have a week off. I'll pop in when I have a chance here and there, but I'll otherwise be pretty much completely MIA.

I have class/production work on an approximate 10:00am-12:00am, Monday-Saturday schedule for the next two and a half weeks, so I'll be on hiatus. I'll continue picking my way through the threads that I have already and might pop in for some things on Sundays.

Also, I actually probably shouldn't be sitting for long enough to do actual threading.

Guess who suffered a lower back injury and can't really walk right now.

Yeah.

I think it's hilarious, too.

Sticking my academic schedule here. Classes are just about the smallest thing on my plate -- I'll also be in production throughout the year, which means that there is a constant stream of rehearsals, meetings, office work and performances that have no set repeating schedule. I'll be doing an estimate of my overall state of semi-hiatus/hiatus for the year based on my most updated information.

Basically, my activity level will become very low, sporadic and unpredictable. But I still want to do things with you! This will hopefully help to plan. The most important part of this, however, as with any schedule, is the following note: SUBJECT TO CHANGE. I might end up unexpectedly available! Conversely, I might end up unexpectedly unavailable/drunk. But this gives a general shape of things, at least.

I'm going to be carrying over as many threads as possible because I have a neurotic dedication to running up the comm's comment count as much as I can, but please feel free to tag in here for any new/old fourth wall threads.

Also, my sincerest apologies for derping out like a champion over the past couple of days with threads from both the fourth wall event and before. I just moved back into my apartment for the school year, so there were all sorts of moving/unpacking/cleaning things going on. Additionally, there is a hurricane coming, so I am occasionally in somewhat mind-numbing amounts of pain and just can't handle more than a thread or two at a time.
