... But I've gotta take a bit of a break. Don't get me wrong, I'm not leaving, not by any stretch, I'll certainly be back, likely within a week, maybe two. It's a family medical emergency, a potentially life threatening one, and I'd prefer to focus my attentions on that. Couple reasons for that, and like the Skarner you know, I'll explain them.
Firstly, this whole thing is fairly stressful for me and has sapped my creativity nigh completely. To elaborate a bit, my mother is pretty much the only seriously close family that I've got, and there's a very real chance she could die very, very soon. Of course I feel it's only natural that with that being a rather salient risk, that I try and spend what could be the last of our time together, well, together. I'm hoping for the best, of course.
Secondly, this place is stressful in and of itself, and more stress on top of this, when it's largely avoidable, is not what I'm looking for right this very second. This place does mean a lot to me, but my continued mental stability is of more importance to me at the moment. I'll need it, since I'm my mother's primary support through all this.
Thirdly, I've kinda just been going full tilt anyway, and I think a little bit of a break is in order. This place can be tiring, especially with the role I've made for myself around here. I like to personally think of myself as the closest thing we have to a mediator, though that's perhaps not the most accurate term. Can't really think of it at the moment, but I'm sure everyone knows what I do when stuff starts going down. I'm not a fan of conflict, and I feel that's fairly obvious.
However, this doesn't mean I'm backing out of my obligation to the upcoming Kha'zixses... es. However you pluralize that. I'll be "Around" transiently outside of the auditions, but I made a commitment to them and I'll be staying true to that. Trust that while I'll be about, pretty much every comment will be OOC. I'll definitely be around the client itself, though I'll likely avoid Sanctuary for a bit, though that doesn't mean I'm not willing to talk. It's one of the only ways I have to talk to someone I consider very dear to me and they know who they are.
Try not to burn the place down while I'm gone?
