Throughout everything, I shouldn't regret this, but I do. I regret more things than any of you could ever imagine.
Due to a complete lack of maturity, and the absolute pain it causes me to try to be professional IC, I must regretfully leave this RP. I thank every one of you who ever made it fun for me, because it was the first RP I'd ever been in, and I learned so much. I had some really, really good times in here, and I'll always hold those memories. Over the months, Mel has become very, very dear to me, and it pains me to have to give her up.
However, when OOC problems get to the point that it literally causes me pain to try to remain all well and good IC, it's not fair to anyone for me to stay here. I've tried to rectify the problem for months, but lack of response, lack of caring, lack of. . .I don't know, from other parties made it impossible. The RP lost its fun months ago, but I've held on to the vague hope that this could all be fixed. If both parties were capable of complete honesty and maturity, it would have been fixed. What more can I say then that I tried? That's all you can ask someone to do. But it gets to a point where you realize that people can't be helped unless they want to be helped.
No matter. I'm disappointed in the way a fair few things lately in here have been handled. Especially bias from people who have no right to be biased. It was expected, but still very, very disappointing.
I'm not trying to be vindictive, here. Drama is the last thing that any RPG needs. But some things need to be said. I'm posting this in Mel's personal journal instead of the community, because I'm not going to let it get deleted. Comments are disabled because honestly? I don't want to hear any protests when I know what's true and what's false. There are only two people here who care that I'm quitting, and one of them is quitting with me.
I refuse to stay here any longer and subject myself to the humiliation of people implying that somehow I'm the cause of a problem, or that my 'lack of interaction' is a terrible thing. Certain characters posts and comments, or lack thereof, make my lack of interaction completely laughable. Especially when said characters were the ones to urge the mod into saying something about it. I mean, talk about making it SO easy to see right through that.
Well, that's it. It was fun for a while at least, and again, I thank you for that. Good luck in the future for this RP.
