The RhyDin Polyvore had a really awesome Charie CD contest a while back, and while I wasn't able to think of a Bailey CD (and cover art design) in time for the contest, I figured I could at least put together a mix of songs that inspire and remind me of him. Here goes!

  1. Helena Beat - Foster the People
  2. Sitting - M83
  3. Nobody Asked Me (If I Was Okay) - Sky Ferreira
  4. Chandelier - Sia
  5. In for the Kill - La Roux
  6. Grace Kelly - MIKA
  7. All the Young Dudes - David Bowie
  8. Take Your Mama - Scissor Sisters
  9. Haemoglobin - Placebo
  10. This Picture - Placebo
  11. Distortions - Clinic
  12. Dudley - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  13. Another Drug Deal of the Heart - The New Pornographers
  14. Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High? - Arctic Monkeys
  15. Shelter - The xx
  16. Spaceman - The Killers
  17. Where Are U Now - Jack U feat. Justin Bieber

I've had this rattling in my head for a while now, but I'm not getting any younger and life's not getting less crazier, so I'm going to spit it out right now and hope it comes out clear.

I'm very late on this, but I wanted to say thanks for all the dueling stuff I was involved with at the end of last year (and in 2016 in general), and say sorry that I wasn't able to do more interesting stuff while I was Archmage. I wasn't around much then, and I haven't been around much (or at all, I guess, really) lately, and it's nothing to do with any dissatisfaction with RDI/RoH.

You might have noticed my posting frequency slowed down dramatically last spring, around March/April/May. That was because I took a new job that required a cross country move, and then had an adjustment period to said job. Said job also required a lot more computer time than my previous one, which meant I wasn't much in the mood to jump on the computer when I got off work, and there was less free time to work on posts while I was at work.

What I haven't talked about as much here is the fact that the job hasn't worked out the way I hoped it would. As it turned out, the position level/pay level they offered me initially was offered to me by mistake, so I had to wait six months to get that position/pay bump. In the mean time, that was six months of work making less than I made at my previous job in a place that was MORE expensive to live. After about eight months in the position, I've also realized it's not for me -- there's a lot of factors that come into a decision like that, which I won't go over one-by-one, but I will say that I've realized I need a position that's more social than this one is. The final kicker is that I realized I would be much happier living closer to friends/family -- the move isolated me a great deal, and I don't think I realized how that would affect me until it sank in.

The TL;DR of that is that SL-wise, I've set Bailey aside until I can get my you-know-what together. IC, as of January 20, Bailey is back in RhyDin but in a coma at Rhy'din Medical Center. If time permits, I will be writing/posting the posts to get him up to that moment (and the backlog of posts from last year). I'm hoping to have new work lined up ASAP, or have moved back closer to home sometime this summer.

Thanks for understanding, and I hope to see/play with you all sooner rather than later.

-Ben

Best wishes and luck in getting your ducks all in a row! Life can be stressful, so take all the time you need! Looking forward to your eventual return. I've always enjoyed watching Bailey, and more recently, being able to interact with him on a more personal level with Cane. You do you! We'll all be here when life settles down. :)

Bob will visit Bailey every week, much to the horror of the hospital staff.

Bump! The writing has been slow, and by slow I mean almost non-existent.

1. I ended up declaring the message board equivalent of e-mail bankruptcy and freely admitting I have fallen way too far behind to catch up on all the posts I've missed in the past few months. Anyone have a TL;DR RhyDin summary for me?

2. It's not great, but I finally just decided to write the next bit of Bailey's off-world SL (actually getting him off-world and posted it. On to the next one, hopefully faster, but no promises.

Welcome back!

I don't think anyone would trust me to give an accounting of everything you've missed but I'll do it anyway. Bob is about to leave for space to buy a moon with some of his many quadrillions of dollars. Jesse finally relinquished the Tower of Fire (no more spa, truly a sad moment). John Cole... well, is having some trouble. Jewell is overlord. Madness is almost over. Claire won diamond twice in a row. Crispin is back to their usual grumpiness. Probably about a billion other things going on. Someone else should step in.

Good to see some words again.

Figuring out who held what title back in December took a bit of sleuthing. Thankfully, someone rejiggered the standings over at RoH to make it much easier to search for a specific week's standings! Very Happy

I'm not quite sure I'm all the way back yet. I also think I am, like, a year overdue on wrapping up the Leap Year SL I started. So I'm hopeful that a year off on that will have given me some time to think and work on that.

First real post (that I didn't set aside months ago and then jump back on) in a long, long time. I'm actually trying to go all the way back to the Leap Year SL I started and abandoned last year, and give it a proper wrap, before I move on to the next SL that I started and abandoned. Of course, I only had broad strokes in mind when I had started that, so I'm not sure if what I'm writing will line up with how Bailey's been behaving in the last year or so. I can barely remember what the plan was in the first place!

It's been a long time since I've had to write a fight scene, and they're hard enough in the best of circumstances, so cut me some slack if it's not the cleanest post in the world to read. Razz

Struggled quite a bit with that last post -- lots of dialogue, lots of past stuff I hadn't really fully worked out, and I'm still not 100% sure it all rings true and isn't offensive. Please let me know if it is, and I will do my best to edit it within the limits of the story I'm trying to tell.

Thanks for your patience.

Bailey's back! Sort of -- he's awake and out of his coma, but he's not advertising that fact for reasons that will become clear once I get through the amazing backlog of stories and posts that I have. Feel free to recognize him if he's out and about and you think there's a good reason to, but keep in mind he'll be making some effort (glamour and otherwise) not to be recognizable as himself.

Some food for thought while I struggle to balance job applications, work, and my creativity.
