Hey, Vis! Welcome back! I'd deploy a tactical muffin to celebrate your (hopeful) return, but I'm away from my PC right now. Expect an edit later on. In any case, it's great to see your text again as well!  ;D

Hey guys, long time no looking at the text that you have all written.

I've tried to come back twice before now and failed both times, but hey third times the charm right. First off I truly want to apologize for the way I just left things without any proper warning. I'm generally a very private person but considering how I kinda abandoned this I do want to give some detail about what happened. The short version is that insomnia and depression got really out of control, I've been taking 3 different types of sleeping pills trying to find the best solution (all of which drastically reduced my "functional hours" of the day) not to mention antidepressants. So yeah loads of fun pharmacological stuff. Anyhoo finally off them all and starting to feel a bit like myself again so time to dust off the spreadsheet again (Heck guess i never gave you all any results from the survey).

Can't promise I'll ever be as active as I once was but hopefully no more dropping off the face of the earth.

Oh boy... that is a long tale to tell. ^_^;;

Short version is this: roughly 20 years, on and off. Got my start as a dumb kid writing terrible fanfiction who wandered into a competitive combat RP forum, got my butt kicked, and somehow managed to convince some fairly badass writers to teach me their word-ninja ways. It was a pretty aggressive forum where quality, writing style, and tactics were constantly getting compared and evaluated -- keep in mind, this was the heyday of DBZ and such, so things were a lot more "power level" driven and a lot less adventure/story focused. It was also the 90s and most of us were, predictably, young and confused back then... I doubt anybody back then really knew any better, honestly.

Since that point I've kinda been all over the place for various stints of time. AnimeLeague, back when they still did miscellaneous multiverse RPs, was one of the big ones. I've been on Kingdom Hearts and Soul Eater forums, original medieval fantasy, scifi, and superhero RPs, a pretty broad spectrum. You learn a lot from meandering across the "RPverse", not least about yourself. One thing I've discovered is that the more you know, the better you get as a writer, the more you realize that even the best of us have only just scratched the surface.

So... I guess that's your 'motivational thought' for the day. That, and "always have a landing strategy", but that goes without saying.  :P

Yeah, that's pretty much the gist of it. It was very much my childhood series, and my favorite book of all time is still the House of Hades (though, it certainly requires reading the other books first to fully enjoy it).
So yes, this is probably the first time we've met, but I'm glad to make your acquaintance! Where did you start out with RP forums? And how long have you been around on them?

Ah, neat! Not really familiar with the Percy Jackson series myself (I'm vaguely aware that it's 'Greek mythology meets the modern world' but not really in the loop beyond that), but I can certainly appreciate a fandom with a taste for legends and lore of yore. That being the case, this is probably our first encounter. BTW, should you ever be in the mood to hear an old man rant and rave about how forum RP has changed over the last 20 years, lemme know!

... Ye gawds, I'm such a relic that Ozpin oughts put me in a vault. ~_~;;

Actually, Oneiroi what my name is supposed to be! I misspelled it in the first account I made using the name, and the misspelling usually means no one has taken the name, so it kinda stuck. Iím sure the SCP thing is in reference to the Greek Gods the same way mine is. Still super cool though!
