And I know for a fact that I said I didn't have any intentions of returning; all of my motivation for my character died because I wrote him into a corner. And he's dead. However... that's not to say that my character has completely been erased from my mind. Unfortunately (or fortunately), even after I left I still had some ideas and ways to improve him. When I said all of my creative essence for characters went into him, I MEANT it, and it's still applicable. In other words: I miss Deniel. I miss playing and writing as him a lot.
So... I face a dilemma. Do I come back, or do I not? On the one hand I'm super busy with almost no free time to myself, between a job and a ton of college work. And I left my rank and status behind. On the other hand, I like the people here; I let go a lot of opportunities, and the creativity for Deniel still exists somewhere in my little imagination.
And so... with the Fall Quarter over, I decided to give it a try once again. And yes, I'm being serious this time; I've got no idea what the future is in front of me, and in spite of how much I regretted getting to H rank, I'm going to try and go above and beyond this time. But I'll probably try and make more friends along the way this time. I don't know how my activity will be after his coming Christmas, but for now... I'll see how this goes.
So to everybody--my friends and those I don't know--I'm back. For real this time. And let's go again!
