The only rule I have about posting here is this: Have Fun!

I credit the mun of Bjorn Andrews with inspiring me to get my own folder. I’ve been around DM since 2006, and never made the move to get one till now. Many heartfelt thanks go to that mun, because for the first time I am excited about having a place to write Gem’s story. I am looking forward to sharing Gem with those who want to read about her.

Many thanks also to the administrators of the forums of Dragon's Mark. Without the muns of Panther, Amaltea, and Xenograg, as well as others whose names I am too silly with excitement to drag out of my head, we would not have a place as excellent as this at which to write. At which to share the many stories in our heads. So thank you all, especially the ones who never get named or thanked. I thank you right now.

Gem was created in tabletop Advanced Dungeons & Dragons many years back, within the careful restrictions of my then Dungeon Master. So, yeah, that dates me. I am not in my twenties. Those angsty times are behind me, now, and so there it is.

I did not 'inspire' you so much as apply peer-pressure but you are incredibly sweet. Very Happy I cannot wait for all the Gem stories that come, as well as the Eze and Rei ones and whatever guests you end up having! I love Gem's depth and versatility as a character beyond words, and only you could breathe such fantastic life into her in the way you do. Now you have to post at least once every two months! I am satisfied.

Congratulations!

Psst - Apparently, according to a wee birdie, it's someone's birthday today (3/15). I won't name names (Gem's writer) but I just wanted to wish this very special person (Gem's writer) a very happy birthday!

Ah...another new neighbor, hope you are upwind. The forge fires haven't made me a lot of friends on the down wind side. Enjoy the folder.

For anyone that plays with Gem, I've just had word from her family that she's currently in hospital with pneumonia. She's being looked after well and should hopefully be out in a few days, but it was requested I let people know as she'll obviously be absent a while.

GET WELL SOON, LADY! Sorry you had a shi**y birthday =/

I know I've already e-mailed but this one is to say rest hardcore, drink plenty of fluids (I think?), and let us know how you're doing soon! I worry about you, lady, and light a lot of white candles to give warmth to all the positive thoughts I'm sending your way. <3

Thank you all for the well wishes and concern. I am all better now, except for some lingering tiredness, which I am told is normal. I started nursing school again at the start of April. So far I have survived 2 weeks out of the eleven that the quarter lasts for. If I make it through the last 9 weeks alright, I will be a graduated LPN sometime in mid-June. Then I can hopefully go on for the RN year, which starts in late June. I do plan on being around to play, but things have been hectic with school and kidlets and illness and all. I will show up more, I promise. Don't give up on me! You all take care and see you in play SOON!

Good to hear you are doing better. For now just worry about that and personal life first. And when you have the time to play, we'll see you there.

Hah, I miss seeing Gem around, too! And Rei! I am better, just zigging and zagging through this quarter of nursing school. It's a tough one, lemme tell ya. Also, I suddenly had to move, as my landlady suddenly didn't have a place to live except the place I am ..was..renting from her. We move this saturday, and right now I am packing/cleaning/moving boxes over to the new place. I hope to have a wee bit of down time on sunday during the day to pop in. I miss you all. So very much. I will be back.::In Ahn-nold accent:: Phear!

Whoa, we can't have Ten pouting!!!

For those of you that care, I am now a graduated Licensed Practical Nurse. I will be taking the state board exam in another month or so, even though I am going on to RN school, which starts this coming monday. Summer quarter is only 5 weeks long, and so I should be around this summer much more than I have been. I look forward to playing more with you all.

Be safe and play nice!
