Well, there could be further debate about Entwives, and Rudy has yet to speak up. Lizzy hasn't heard what the adventure is all about, just that there is one. So a few more posts with talk for the Rudy-Mira-Hugo-Peony clan should wrap up the Day.

That was a GREAT post!! well worth the wait!!

As soon as you all finish up at Peony's I will get a narration type post up ending the night and starting the next day.

I think then Lommy Gwathagor and I can do a quick pm post with us leaving and arriving at Peony's.

How do you all want to handle the meeting in the morning of everyone? This is going to be amusing!!!!

Thanks! It was fun to write, especially the revelation that Gaffer Hugo Chubb "don't believe in that nonsense." I didn't know that about him when we started this rpg, but it just sort of appeared on my radar so to speak. I'm certainly going to enjoy making something of it, especially since in real life I'm the opposite.

How about, for the morning, each writer does a post for his or her own character, leading up to the meeting point? In order to do that, we need to establish where that meeting point will be. Valier?

I was thinking we could meet just outside Peony's in the morning. Or does that not work? I agree everyone can write their own post leading to our meeting.

Ok..So where are we at the moment? I think we still need to get the day at Peony's finished. Iras are you going to add something? Let's get this day finished.

Iras we need you to finish up at Peony's with the others. As soon as this is done I can end the day and we can all get in our morning posts.
I really do want to get this started.

Ok We have decided that the active players are going to move on with the day. If and when you do have time Iras,(and Sephiroth, if he doesn't show soon) can you please post here letting us know. Then we can place your post/s in the appropriate place. Or do what needs to be done...

I am just going to assume that the evening at Peony's is finished. I will get up our night post and Bunny's morning post. Lommy do you want to work together on our morning post? We could do it together than post it and Gwathagor can work from our post concerning Tansy's family goodbye and our arrival at Peony's.

Everyone else can you have your posts up shortly after me and Lommy get up the first morning post? It shouldn't take too long if Lommy has a little time each day, I am sure we can have it done fairly quickly.

Please everyone let me know where you stand at the moment, let's get this puppy rolling.

I'm going to be very busy next week - I'm currently in a drama project and we have our dress rehearsal and all the presentations/performances/whatever-is-the-correct-words next week, so I really can't write much, I'm afraid. But I could manage writing something some day, just don't expect a lot of participation from me...

Right. Mira doesn't have anything to say at this point. I think it may be a good idea for Hugo, or Rudy maybe, to dismiss the girls, and then for Hugo and Rudy to talk a bit about it. I think that would fit more then one of them just deciding to go, outright. Would that work?

I can't post this week, as I have a test coming up (ACT) on Saturday, so I'll spend all my stress on that.

Sounds good to me.

I was already planning on Rudy at first strongly () opposing Mira going, I've just been trying to figure out the best way to then make Rudy go along with it. Lmp, is the gaffer the persuasive type?

I think we can write him so. If you'd like to start by having Rudy rant while Hugo listens, that's be a great way to start. Besides, I'm too busy to post actual story today, so if you can go today it would help.

Today's going to be hard, I'm just finally settled down now and it's getting late, but definitely by noon (EST) tomorrow I should have the time to finish Rudy's post.

Ok, so I got Rudy's post up, and he went through pretty much the whole emotional spectrum. Lmp, take it away.

Thumbs up

I agree with Fin great posts!!

Sorry for my absence everyone. I have been quite busy. We just brought home a new puppy and she has required a lot of attention.

So where are we at the moment? Do you at Peony's want to finish up your night or do you want me to proceed with the next day? I'll wait to hear from a few of you, and in the mean time I will work on our night post bring us to the morning and I will try and also include Bunny's morning thoughts in that as well.

Oh oh oh! I've another idea! You could keep the Hobbit lasses in suspence all night and tell Tansy, Peony and Bunny about your resolutions when they come. Just thought that might be a way for us to progress the day.

I think that's a great idea. Now would Iras be involved in that? Since she has yet to be invited by anyone. Or would Hugo and Rudy inform her the night before?

If she was to make herself available during the evening, yes, Hugo would. But he wouldn't seek her out. Not night, in somebody else's house, she tucked away in the guest bedroom. So unless Iras posts her coming out soon, I'd say we should just go for it during the morning.

So let's move the Day and Night along and get this little party started, what say?

I've posted. I was going to do a bit of a narrative, but decided against it. I've just told it from Bunny's perspective. Let me know if anything needs to be changed or if I left us at an awkward place. Let's get this "confrontation" started...

Great post LMP!! I think a little bit of back and forth is needed at Peony's to finish off the morning. If anyone is unable to post soon for this finishing of the morning please do let us know. Let us get this part done nice and quick and get us on our way. If we need to let us put up saves so we can get this done.

Just a thought: just because Gaffer Hugo has put a question to Rudy doesn't mean Rudy has to be the next speaker. If Mira and Peony, or Lizzy, are ready to jump in and interrupt, that's fine too. Actually, it would make things more interesting.

Excellent posts. I'm going to try to get a post in this afternoon regarding the still "undecided" nature of Rudy and Hugo.

With Kitanna choosing to have Peony come in, and Hugo and Rudy don't notice her, my hands are tied as for writing another post, so somebody else will have to next.

If it makes it easier and helps the flow, I can just delete the last part and just have Peony waiting just outside the kitchen.

I don't think you have to do that Kitanna. I'll be able to post Rudy's answer to the Gaffer sometime later, before the day is over.

Finduilas, did you want to bring Mira in to wait around (unnoticed by Rudy and Hugo) with Peony? Or should I go ahead with it and have Rudy tell Hugo his answer now?

I think the messier the better (that means more conflict). Kitanna, I personally think that it would make for more fun rpg'ing if Peony didn't come in quiet as a mouse, don't you think? Unless she's quiet now so that she can flare up in anger at Rudy's words after he speaks?

Do what ever you want with Mira to get the story going. I however will be unable to post today or tomorrow. But keep in mind, I beleive she is rather laid back.
