I don't think it should be the same scene, though, given that the RP in which the conversation was supposed to take place is kind of, erm, done and into intermission. ;)
Sailing free, boundless glimmer, golden whispers, fiery poise, delicate balance, grave and true, bound by earth, feared horizons, courageous steps unknown, shimmering future hidden yet unveiled....

Hey guys?

I'm sorry, but I gave it a try, it was fun for a bit, but... I don't think I can join after all.  I'm still too self-conscious about it, and it takes me too long to figure out what I should post; if I tried to play, I'd hold you all up.

I suggest Rae just arrests/lets go/shoots/whatever works with my character and you move on without me.  Thanks for giving me a chance, at any rate.

Hold it there, Bub! (I've always wanted to say that :D ).

Actually John, our RP moves very slow anyaway. There is never any hurry,. so if you feel like still giving it a go we will be glad to wait. Well, I will anyway. If you really want out, I can arrange that but if you want to stay , I would like you to.

It is your decision, of course since I won't force anyone to stay if they can't have some fun.

John - you aren't holding anyone up at all - I have limited time these days and for what it's worth, I think your posts are great (and no I am not just saying that, they really are) but if you aren't enjoying it we will reluctantly let you go............................

Don't leave John!! I haven't been able to post for two days now  :blush: :wink:......., so it's okay!!!  Stay and give it another shot, please!!!  :hehe:

*I'm posting later today, though......the kids are watching a video with the class next door (in our room!), but I'm afraid if I tried to post an RP post now, I'd get too into it and forget the kids are here :wink:.*

Actually John you have given me a few ideas of how to work you into a few ideas I have for a storyseed to hand off to LOP.

The seed is this. James is getting ready to start up a intellegence service. That is going to require a method of getting people and materials into places and out without drawing attention of the local governments.

Now it would require repairing the ship and also allowing your character to run his ship as he sees fit. At least unless it really messes the jobs handed to you.

Honestly, this RP is moving far slower than it did the last time I was a part of it. I find myself really unable to do anything...

I do find it to be moving slower than my brain is moving with my character, but I'll try to adjust.

Unfortunately, I'm not finding a way to fit him, and my potential in.

We probably think more in-depth than most. ;) I tend to write large character-driven posts but everyone is too busy! :p

I really can't do anything until after the talk with LoP. After that, I have lots of options.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I've got a lot of things going on in my head for my character, which LoP has approved most of it, but it's the rest which is the troubling part to fit in.

Someday I'll catch him on MSN before he blinks off. ;)

Oh, I'm still thinking up what's wrong with my character. One thought that I've had DEFINITELY needs to be approved. ;) The rest are just minor personality changes.

He's hard to grab though. I might have to drive down to Oregon and kidnap him. Mwahahahahahahahaha!

Come on people, I show up here almost daily. :p

As to working people in, LoP will get around to everyone. Trust me. That's the fun part I get, helping people fit in. :)

After LoP visits our newest criminal, he will visit Josh.

OnceI know if John wants to stick with us, I'll have a position for his character. I've got a good idea for Rommie's position. Like I have said, I try to put everyone on the staff if possible. Keeps everyone involved some how. :)

Well, I can tell you that John is currently in the middle of an internet break (indefinitely). Either way, we won't be hearing from him for a while...

I still like that kidnap idea though...

James is working off ship time. And ship time can be different than planet time.

Also I have called lunch dinner and dinner as Supper.

I think I'd like to try this RP thing again, and dust off Ishmael, Ziporah and Fluffy, along with the Maskirovka.

If you don't mind LOP I'll work on getting their profiles in order and PM you this weekend.

Now if John does not bring back his old Alpha ( The one who banished me) I could go along with a long of the old time crowd.
