Evening, ladies and gentlemen of Reflected -
I would like to take this time to announce Reflected's hiatus.
This is an indefinite hiatus with high potential for closure, pending responses.
Right now, we have all of ... two active journal players, and two active IM players, and I'm one of each of those two people. I know a couple of you are busy with real life, but I'm unaware of the status and expected return time of a few of you. Therefore, I see little point in continuing to maintain the journal bit of the game until there are more people paying attention to it, or until people fess up to the fact they really don't have time for it.
So, for the time being, Reflected is not closed, but it's on an indefinite hiatus that may result in closure.
Thank you all for your time and interest thusfar, and I hope the game returns to full swing soon.
In the event we do return to active play, we will continue the first task when we have a full contingent of champion players. It hardly seems fair to run it with two of the champion's players out of commission.
(Left public deliberately)
I suppose I am pleased to announce that in the February 16th match of Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff, the winner was .....
Sad. I was pulling for the 'puffs.
The final score was 150-300, meaning they were neck and neck and tied before Roxy caught herself a snitch.
If anyone else is around to play, you're welcome to set up the celebration thread for Gryffindor. I will likely hop in, though I can't speak for Nate XD
For those of you waiting on me to set something up or tag, I'm afraid I'm going to be MIA today. This is the last day of stressing over college apps, though, so I should be back in action by tomorrow afternoon at the latest. :3
That is... if no one manages to spike my food/drink tonight. *shakes head*
See you guys soon!
Do we want to have a Spring Fling in lieu of a Yule Ball, for the Triwizard?
...we're having a Triwizard?
Can we have a Valentine's Dance too?
I'd rather have a Valentine's Party.
Comments, questions, concerns, queries, and other things welcome.
Because I had nothing better to do with my time, and I find myself missing my own characters' birthdays, here's a handy list I composed of the birthdays I could find. If I forgot one, or if I couldn't find a mention of a birthdate, or if I just plain screwed up one of them... I'd appreciate it if you guys pointed it out to me.
It was a close match, with Ravenclaw leading - until Malfoy found the snitch first.
But fun was had by all, and no one (not even Landon) racked themselves on their broom.
Because communication is love, I thought I'd touch base and let everyone know more or less what's up.
Holidays, illness, lack of internet, and family situations seem to have eaten a vast majority of our cast. We're not dead; we're just slightly disabled. :) I look forward to a full revival after the holidays have decided they're done with us, and people return to steady 'net access and time free of illness.
I will be (soon, eventually, 'cause I've been trying to remind myself to do it for a week) creating a "seating arrangement" for the foreign visitors - but for the most part, Durmstrang's being divided between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor (with the weres together at the Ravenclaw table), and Beauxbatons is being divided between Hufflepuff and Slytherin - with Isolde and Sabine separated (for everyone's peace of mind XD).
I am also encouraging recruiting - friends, family, RP buddies, strangers you meet on the street, whatever - spread the word. I know how we must look now to people perusing the game, but we all know once we get rolling, we'll be back up to pre-holiday levels of postage. I hope, anyway.
As always, creation of new characters is love. Especially foreign kids, but Durmstrang cannot have any more wolves coming to Hogwarts (though you're welcome to apply for pack that's staying behind).
Left public on purpose. :)
Well, yes. I said I'd be back a few days ago.
:3 I have many lovely excuses. Chief among them being that... I'm tired. Oh, so very tired. My parents have gone back to waking me up before 8 and thinking that's not early. That's way bloody early if you're expecting rest when you get home, and expect to stay up late some.
And then... then I get to work 8 hours a day... every day... all week.
But... I'm back now. And I've charged my phone up so people who have been trying to call can actually get through as of Monday morning.
^-^ The point of this is... that I'm back. More or less. I won't be heavy-duty posting until later this week when the novelty of hanging out with my sister has worn out, though. But without further ado, I'm off to tag threads!
For the amazing win, in the very close, very long game (score 230 - 240, whoa, Corvus must've been off his game or the 'claw chasers are just that good) played on Saturday, December First.
Yes, all right, I nearly forgot about this part in all my PLOT BRAINSTORMING EXCITEMENT, WHOA!
Seriously, there's a subset of the plot in creation. So we need wolves, cannon fodder, and secret society members. ::cough::
And no, I'm not trying to piggyback plot onto an announcement. What?
In case you didn't notice (I don't know if it sends e-mails or anything), I did a rename on 'whispers-n-lies' ... i didn't like the '-n-' in the middle like that.
Granted, gilted_effigy doesn't have anything more to do with multiple characters, but... I like the way it sounds. :)
Left public on purpose, comments unscreened.
