Guess I forgot to make a journal for this or something… but in any case, I'm just going to casually get to the point.

I'm still alive; between end-August 2016 and mid-December 2016, I was in "hiding" (as some might put it); it's safe for me now, though.
Sorry for making everyone believe otherwise ;-;

Long story short, my life was in danger.
I also had no say in the matter of going into hiding…

That said, this has caused a lot of chaos as well ;-;
I'd rather not elaborate over it, though.

Anyway, again, I'm sorry for making everyone believe I'm gone ;-;

Sometimes I casually wonder if my life will ever be normal at some point. :o

I wasn't sure whether or not to put this here, but I might as well.

As I've said above, I wasn't given a choice in the matter of going into protective custody; I've been casually told that it was one of the wiser choices I've made. It was for their safety.

On 19 August 2016 (this was the day most of my first forum's content was deleted), I casually left, went to walk to try and clear my head. Later, someone attacked me with a knife; I did punch him in self-defense. (I guess I was still in shock over what had happened to Vresun at the time.)

A day or so after, I noticed that someone was following me whenever I was outdoors. South Africa is a country with a high crime rate, unfortunately… so just by defending myself, I guess I endangered not only myself, but the people around me.

On 30 August 2016, that was when I went into hiding… and probably shortly before 21 December 2016, it was safe for me to no longer be in protective custody, so I returned home.

Hey, Shane. It's me, Demetrios from TV Tropes. It's all right; I forgive you. I'm just glad that you're safe. :)
