Okay....here it is Friday and yes a day off. In a few hours I am headed to pickup prescriptions and a few other grocery items, then back for a double batch cooking day before the weather turns hot again. Geli is off (soon) for two weeks, Quill is off and down in FL.....so I don't feel the pressure to get the post completed, but it is bothering me that it is all in my head exactly where it is going and I need to get it out for better sleep. :P I work closing tomorrow and opening Sunday, next day off is Monday and that is the best bet for a post up.

Trust me....and I don't say that lightly....there WILL be a post and it will be such that both Geli and Quill can write off of. For WC....Arth, not sure if he is still interested or not. But that is the beauty of this RP....people can come and go at will. (though I hope they mostly stay and I would be thrilled if our Tyggies and Gwennie came back again)!! I'll try to find an email for both and see what I can do.

Hang in there and Frelga/Quill enjoy your time off. :)

Oh my gosh, I never thought I'd see this resurrected! Thank you, rwhen, for emailing me! (It went into my spam, but I got it anyway.)

Wow, Aramir. So much nostalgia and sixteen-year-old-writer OC-creation embarrassment there! XD And I don't remember a single thing about Falastor, but I just reread his bio and he sounds like fun. Apparently I was a lot funnier in 2013. :D

I'm going to need some time to reread all those pages of RP, and then I'll see what I can do! I'm actively working on a novel right now, but I'd love to get back into this if I can.

* crashtacklehug * Sil! How's life treating you? So glad to see you!

You know I have a weak spot for Ar, ever since he has appeared shirtless at that wedding. ;) And Falastor was fun, too.
Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.

*see's Frelga on top of Sil and jumps on the pile* :D

Sil!!! I hear ya. Fionavar was developed from the mind of a person advancing in life who never ever thought to write in this sort of format. I wrote poems and songs, but RP?????? And I have fantasized about writing a book...but hey I don't have your talent. True. I was gone for over five years from this lovely thread and well...from TORC entirely. I had to check in on Fiona and the group only to find CR and Sidd the only folks posting after the tornado.

You can read the whole RP, but I think the last few pages will trigger that ol' memory and Aramir will pop right on up. He is such a rich and well written character. Also I want to know more of Falastor, he had only a few posts before I left.

I can't believe you got that mail from yesterday. I literally sent it thinking it was going into the jaws of infinity never to be read...and it basically did. I am thrilled that you actually got it. Now to try and rouse Tyggies. ANYONE HAVE AN EMAIL FOR HER??????? She doesn't have one listed here on TORC. I checked my past emails and couldn't find anything either. I have an old address for her and I hear she is on Facebook.....another place I dropped many moons ago.

Enough yakking so I am filling in an outline for a new start up post, should be up fairly soon...early next week. A new member to the party is on vacation at the moment and Frela lady is off for a few weeks her ownself....so there is time.

Geli???? Ar shirtless? *faints*

I am actually getting a bit excited now....though I also grieve the passing of CR. His unique voice will be missed. I know he would want us to shoulder on and so we will.

:grouphug:

UPDATE: I left a message on FB for her just now asking her to at the least check in on the OOC. NOW to find one other....hmmmmm.

Back from vacation! Please, still do take you time though. No need to rush. Plenty to keep me busy irl. School is starting up in a week and a half and my classroom desperately needs some TLC!

Are you a teacher Quill? My SiL is on her last year before retirement....and for decades my brother has had to buy a whole office supply store for her. They have huge printers at the house just for her classes. I guess the school's don't provide much any more. :( Glad to have you home. Tell us about Harry Potter World. :D

I got a reply from Tygara and indeed she is just starting a several months long aggressive chemo/radiation treatment protocol. Let's all think lovely prayers and thoughts for her. She did say that after that or when she could she would do her best to post....I would just love to see her on the OOC. I also let her know that I am going to send Kitty and Daniel off to tie up family matters for a bit, rather than just write her out.

I also have a great lead for Eari. I will let you know how that turns out.

For the muse....I am rapping on her head at the moment trying to tie this first post all together. That is why I have been trying to reach people to see what I should do with their charries and if they will or will not return at some point. Not an easy feat. But like I said....it is outlined and about half fleshed out. Patience is its own reward, someone somewhere said. ;)

Oh gosh, I didn't know Tygara was going through that! All the thoughts and wishes are going her way.

Second update. I didn't hear from Eari directly, but through heliona and Vanaladiel.....I hear she has a small child and is expecting another.....I won't give an answer yet as to if she will want to continue, but it may be that her time is and will be limited for posting. I'll let you know.

I am thinking for now, I will write Laesha and her huge elf friend as off to teach Laesha more of his Lore....if that makes sense.

Again, tough to get my silly brain around at this point, but I don't want to leave charries just hanging out there.

*sends love and prayers to Tyggies* We are with you little one!! :hug:

Sounds like the gears are grinding into motion. Can’t wait to see how things get started again.

Rwhen, I am a teacher. I teach middle school math’s, sciences, technology, and Bible (because I teach in a small Christian school). Keeps me pretty busy, but its also super fun as well. I wouldn’t exactly say I love it so much I don’t work a day in my life, but it certianly has its moments.

So... Harry Potter land was pretty awesome. We had breakfast at the Three Broomsticks one day and then lunch at the Leaky Cauldron. They have two locations: Hogsmead and Diagon (?) Alley. These are actually in two separate park and you can take the Hogwarts Express to jump between them. Way too much to share. There is the Bank and various stores mentioned int he books. There are four major roles coaster style rides that are themed within the two zones, including one that just opened in June (I think). The line for which was ridiculously long (I’m talking like 3 hour wait time minimum, unless you got there obscenely early in the morning).

Ummmm.... frozen butterbear carts all over. Wands for sale, which pared with spots all around the two zones. You could actually take your wand and swish it about and cause things to happen at various placed. For example: turning on water fountains, opening windows, making things behind windows move and various silly effects. We did not get any wands, but I did get some wizzarding money to add to my coin collection (silly I know, but kinda fun).

Yeah. Pretty cool! Deffinitly worth the pilgramige if you are a die hard Harry Potter fan. Lots of kids and even several adults wandering about in robes and house ties swishing thier wands about.

Anyway, I will try and be ready to get writing when the “post” drops, but don’t be surprised if I’m not “on it” same day. All the aforementioned excuses, blah blah blah.

Another update. I finally got a friend acceptance on Facebook from Eari! :D And she is on holiday with bad internet. I have asked, begged, her to at least check in on this OOC when she returns to get an idea of how she feels about Laesha and her big 'ol elf dude. She can tell us if there is no further interest or she just simply doesn't have the time any longer to put into an RP. Or best scenario would love to continue. Can't wait to hear from you Eari.

That is all the folks I can think of to try and round up. I will write for Robin and the Eagle, Kitty and Daniel and if need be Laesha and Eilathen. Then post as Fionavar "in current time"...bringing in Aramir, Falastor, Geli and Neil. If someone shows up after that, we can easily work them in.

I think rwhen will write first for CR, Tyggies and Eari. Fionavar will write the rest. Just to avoid confusion.

Does that make sense to everyone? Good, because it daunts the poochies (<---remembering Calma) out of me. But those who know me know I am up to the task. I just need the time to do it all.

Soon my friends, soon.

Edited:

Quill. Your trip sounds amazing!! Very cool that you got to see and do what you did, notwithstanding the long lines for the rides. Still seeing the movies/books come to life in front of your eyeballs. How sweet is that. I will never make it to Florida...but I think they also have one at the Universal Studios in California. That is more likely if I ever make it at all. Amusement parks is a bit beyond my physical capabilities. (meaning all the walking). Thanks for the update. Glad to have you home safe again.
