Deja vu - PrologueOther Pokemon are strange, are they not? I've been alive for longer than I care to figure out, and in that time there hasn't been a single one that I've felt I've truly known. I've gotten along with countless ones, engaged in meaningful conversation with many, worked alongside dozens, and shared my life with a small few. I've gotten a good impression of all of them, some impressions far more accurate than others, but at the very end, when all is said and done, I can't claim to truly know any of them. I know the stories they tell, the ways they live, and even how they think, but I never know the reason why for any of it. I have come very close on just a few occasions, but everyone goes away in the end, leaving me to live on, knowing them as no more than a well-known stranger.
I've decided long ago that I was tired of that inevitable chain of events, so I've decided to neglect showing fondness towards anyone. A rather cold decision, I will admit, but when you've l

I won't go over the last "goodbye" journal, but it was a pretty painful experience to let go of something like this to start working on personal projects. I'm not sure how many people are familiar with the grief that accompanies not getting out a story you had, something you really wanted to share with the world. It's a pretty terrible feeling.
I left this group to people I had hoped would be able to carry it on, but slowly the realization hit me that... that wasn't going to be the case. And that I had done most of the work singlehandedly, which half a dozen people couldn't do a fraction of. Not to blame anyone - I worked like a madman on the group because of the fervor I had for expressing stories, getting character development out, improving my comics, writing, etc... all of the reasons I started this group for others, you know? I felt that in my bones, and I wanted to help others feel that same spark.
Arc 1 SummaryHello again, everyone! It seems that Callahan can’t seem to leave well enough alone, and has bugged me to compile a list of the more important goings-ons that each of the three guilds here in Tao have been up to since the past year or so. I was hoping it wouldn’t be too much, but it looks like I was wrong... In fact, it looks like all the guilds here have managed to accomplish a great deal since the beginning, much to my dismay. You guys have no idea how cluttered Callahan’s office is, he doesn’t organize anything! He told me to do it myself if it bothered me so much, but he’s not getting free labor out of me. Well, additional free labor, I guess, as I’m not really... being paid to do this. Not with money, anyway; he says that the opportunity to “pore over and absorb such a rich and vibrant history following the creation of the three guilds should be more than enough payment”. He’s full of it, but I can’t complain.Arc 1 Summary2 years ago in Personal More Like This
