Thanks?...

Okay, so I lied. But I found this picture of his model, and I had to use it.

Okay, I am sorry if this is utterly horrible, but I could not find a good place to put the polar bear without it looking all swished together and cluttered. So if you want me to try at it again, I will. :)

Retiring Characters.
I don't like it.


Yep, you read that correctly. I think it's high time I've gotten rid of Jaiun and Sela. I haven't connected with these characters for a long time now and continuing onward with them feels like I'm doing myself an injustice. I can't hear their 'voice', so to speak, and writing with them is a pain, as you might have noticed from my delayed posts. I think it's time to just wash my hands of them.

But I still don't like it.

I've gotten attached to these characters. While they aren't the closest to me, I still see them as my baby and I just don't want to let go, even though I know I should. One of them's my oldest character. They feel like a part of me, or at least a part of the Mizahar me.

Plus, there are you guys. I feel as though I'm disappointing my thread partners by retiring these characters. Maybe it's because I get so involved, but both Sela and Jaiun have future plots with them in them. And now I'm letting everyone else I've plotted with down. First, let me make it perfectly clear that the people I've been threading with on these characters are not the reason I'm retiring them. You've been nothing but spectacular, even as I, well, fail.

Is it stupid that I care this much about this? I've never really retired a character before, so this is pretty new.

Jaiun I've been having trouble with a lot recently. I've gone on and off with him a lot. Sela is not as bad, but I still just can't connect with her. I have an easy way to write out Sela, and I'm sure to find a way to kill off Jaiun. Either that or I'll retire him peacefully.

Don't worry. I'll finish my threads with them before I retire them, make sure that all my thread partners are good to go. I owe you that much at least. I won't officially retire them right away. Just a heads-up on what I plan to do with those characters.

Whew, that was longer than I expected. I'm going to go and play with my puppy now.

- Will.

P.S. Wow, I barely post in this, don't I?

If you truly want to retire Sela, we can think of a dramatic ending in the Spring Plot?

Sounds good. I had planned for her to just go up with Denval, but...this works too...Unless it'll be the same thing?! Oh, you're a tricky one Paragon, but I'm onto you...

Ahem. Yes, that would be good. PM?

It's sad to know that Jaiun won't be around any more, but I can't blame you for wanting to let go of him. I've had some trouble connecting with Belgar, too. Occasionally he gets boring, but there are days when he's the only thing I can write!

I'm glad I got to meet Jaiun, but I'm more glad that I get to write with you. Stories and characters change just like people do. There's no shame in moving towards those that inspire you by letting go of those that don't. :)

How does that make you feel?

My phone is conspiring against me. It logged me in even thought I logged out the last time I visited Mizahar.

I swear, it wants me to become addicted. But, ha, I have a counter! Mass Effect 3 solves all problems.

...I'm gonna stop making random comments and go post now.
