08.09.20. - Just a small update for you this month to bring you our August Promo featuring our black market shops! Additionally, thank you to all who posted in our Activity Check! if you did not get a chance to post in our AC or post an away message and are concerned for your characters, please reach out to Jello as soon as possible!
It's officially summer in Anrui, and the heat is here to prove it! Pokemon are out in droves, all trying to find some relief from the heat. Be careful - they're a little extra testy during heatwaves, and you don't want to get caught between them and some refreshing shade!
Welcome to the Anrui Region, where training is illegal. The Anrui Region is a desolate and lonely place, a once bustling region that has lived under the oppression of Team Plasma for many years. Plasma took over and outlawed training of Pokemon. Raids occurred and people and Pokemon alike were killed. Back alley gym matches were held, but people remain terrified to overthrow Plasma. Who will you side with, Plasma? Or The Resistance?
One of our most welcoming, loyal, and patient of members can be found in Bee - who has been a member for two years now! Always friendly and active in both OOC and IC spaces, Bee is often one of the first people that new members are greeted by and lends a face of familiarity and kindness to any of Anrui's frontiers. With immaculate detail to each masterfully crafted post he writes, as well as the memorable and relatable qualities of his lifelike characters, Bee is a joy to roleplay with and a treasure to Anrui. We're honored to spotlight Bee as our Member of the Month!
As hardened as she is fierce, Nell Stark is a wonderful example of when the extremities of Anrui's political climate are pushed too far on a breakable human mind. Protective of her ideals and morals to the point of defection, watching how Nell is portrayed adapting to the side of the enemy she was once factioned against through her front of snappy indifference is equally parts fascinating and ambiguous. We're happy to announce Nell Stark as our Character of the Month!
In our Thread of the Month oh, life is bigger, Desmond Winters has been in prison for a decade now for murder and procuring, having fully accepted his fate of rotting in the concrete box - that was, until Phoenix Delgado, head researcher of RIVER on the hunt for a new assistant intern, showed up one fateful afternoon. With Desmond's subpar interview skills and Phoenix's cutthroat choosiness, these two collide and find that the traits once considered to be undesirable by others in a professional setting somehow fit together like puzzle pieces.
"Women want me, fish fear me. As loud as it typically was, he had never grown used to the rush of noise - the absolute cacophony - that rushed to his head, every time he would catch small glimpses of ripples and mistakes within the fabricated realm which held him willingly captive. Glitches in the simulation during which the veil would be tattered, fluttering about in the winds of unknown change and what lied behind the wall. Welling inside of him, something was wrong. So entirely, entirely wrong; the same kind of wrong as when he was certain he had left the stove on, or hadn't locked his door. The same wrong that rendered the atmosphere dense and strange, though apparently invisible to his eyes. They had probably forgotten to have her change before being sent out to collect him. Or warn him. Or terrorize him." - Julian Miller, A[D]VERSARY
Just a quick update about this week! I have a concert on Thursday and way too much stuff to do in preparation for said concert.
I’m running head first into my two fullest days of school (I don’t have any planning or lunch periods to get stuff done - literally just five minutes in the middle of each day to use the bathroom quick).
I also have a final project due Tuesday night for my class, and guess who waited till the last minute despite her professor warning her not to?
SO WHAT IM SAYING is plz pray for me and I will see you this weekend bc this bitch’s evenings are about to be filled with trying desperately to get my work done on time.
these next two weeks are going to be insanely busy for me! I work all day Mon-Fri's, and for the next two weeks I have rehearsals after work Mon-Thurs that eat up the entire evening. Literally, won't even be going home in between work and rehearsals. Gonna miss my dog SO MUCH don't worry, my husband will be able to let him out and play with him in between!
additionally, as if I needed anything else to bring excitement to my life, I ALSO am approaching the deadline for the final project for the class that I'm taking. I'm a week ahead in this class, so I'm hoping I'll be able to finish it this coming weekend, because the next weekend (when it's actually due) I have three performances that will eat up all of my time.
so, as usual when I post these types of messages, plz pray for me to whatever deities you believe in and I'll see you on the other side
Hi everyone! This post is extremely overdue, but I just wanted to update y’all on what’s been going on in my life and where it’s going from here!
As a lot of you know, I’m still working full time (from home!) as well as taking grad classes. My current grad class began about two weeks ago, and it is awful. I won’t go much into it, but it’s a ton of reading, watching/taking notes on documentaries (mostly without subtitles rip......) and then writing essays, so very different than what I’m used to from this program. Last weekend, I realized that I had made a mistake regarding when assignments were due, and essentially I spent this past week not only playing major catch up, but also trying to stay on time for work due this weekend, which is why I have been LITERALLY nonexistent.
This week, I will have more time to work on my assignments (since I’m starting them at the beginning of the week and not playing catch up), so I’m hoping that I will have time to get on and be present at least every other day!
Additionally, this is my last “full” week of work! So once I can devote more time than just the evenings to my homework, it’ll be WAY easier. (Plus I’m not teaching this summer!!!!! I get an entire summer off from teaching other than ((possibly)) marching band!!!!!!!!!!)
So anyway, thank you for your continuous patience with me and my wild schedule!!
Posting here to note that I am heading on vacation to the beach! I’ll be away until the 11th, so I wouldn’t expect any posts from me until the 13th, as I’ll probably still be wiped out on the 12th. I did bring a laptop with me, though, so if I have any free time I’ll hop on!
That being said, you can still feel free to DM or @ me in the discord if you need anything!! <3
