Hello, Almost an Allegory people! :D

This thread is one of the first I've come across since joining, and the first I really want to participate in--so I decided to write a reply before posting here, and at the moment it's nearly finished; it will no doubt be completely finished by tomorrow. However, by necessity it ends both the night and the rainstorm within the allegorical world, so I'll probably have to wait a while before posting it anyway.

I know the etiquette of this sort of thing in theory, but in practice it's a bit daunting, at least the first time... from what I infer, no real approval is necessary, but I.. I'd prefer some form of it, just to be sure. Either way, though, kudos to Circ for starting an amazing thread.

Right, well... I really hope I didn't do anything wrong.

I also hope someone is still following this, because I'd hate to see it die...

You people are just plain cruel..

No, I don't mean that. However, it has been a long time since I've been as divided as I am now.. and you Allegory people are responsible! A lesser man would demand justice, I am however too tormented with the age-old conundrum of "Do I or Don't I?"

All of you have simultaneously managed to all but destroy my usually stubborn role-playing resolve, and yet I find myself inexorably drawn to this thread every few minutes, just to make sure that my newly discovered, volatile sense of self-doubt is not entirely of my own devising.

.. Yeah, that was unnecessary at best, precarious at worst. Basically, I was wondering if this thread was still active, and if so, is there one more spot to be filled?

Should you wish to continue as you are, I'd like you to know you have at least one avid reader who is incredibly impressed with you all, little or as much as that means..

Yikes! I thought I had this thread on my watch list. I guess not. I'm terribly sorry, guys and gals, for not responding to you!

Komf, yes it is still going. You did nothing wrong! I read your post and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope you will continue to participate, despite the neglect I've inadvertently shown. :(

ClockworkJester, if you want to participate, it is an open RP.

Korrye, I am moving your OOC comment to the OOC thread. Nice post. :)

The theme of this RP is to write how you feel. You can't possibly do something wrong. In fact, I'm glad you were able to get out whatever it is that was bothering you. We are also trying to build a cohesive story, tho', (and we = me lol) so if you can construct your feelings into something related to that, it would serve to create a smoother flow.

If you feel you need to discuss this with more urgently, please look me up on AIM or MSN: Feepit / circ@angelfire.com.

Thanks so much Circ. Sorry for posting there. I haven't been on roleplaygateway for awhile. Today I just needed to write so I came back on. I forgot that you weren't supposed to post OOC comments in character.

I appreciate the compliments. My writing is more of a hobby but I take joy in it. Call it my outlet, I know that it works the same for a lot of other people. In terms of plot I know that I would love to expand on the Lonely Girl the same way that you are the hunter. Although the style of my posts may change according to my mood I hope that it goes well. This thread is a great idea.

There is no rule saying you can't, but I just like to keep the thread as tidy as possible. That way it reads more like a story.

I feel stupid. I haven't logged on in months, and I come back to see the story that I could have participated in for all that time. If you don't remember me, look at page 2 of this thread.

Hah, I just found my half finished post that was meant for this Rp. I feel the need to finish it.

Sorry about disappearing.

Well, that is a relief. I bit short, but I'll do something more when I figure out what or how exactly to meld together this.. dream world? with the characters real life. I'm a little confused.

Well, Almost an Allegory has taken a long, long hiatus. Anybody besides me feel that it is time for it to be revived?

I want to see this story evolve, at the very least to the point where the plot has become apparent, because it is awesome. The idea behind this RP is awesome to.

VIVA LA ALLEGORY!

Heh, just read through it, and I knew I'd wanted to join it back when it was kicking. Of course, it's not kicking any more, the legs have rotted away even, but I follow Astral here, would it be possible to revive this ? I really like the concept, and writing this type of stuff is just greatly comforting, or at least to me it is. And of course, you're all pretty bloody top-notch. So yeah, life again, anyone ?

Life is good.

If there were people who acted as a driving force behind this, other than myself, I would certainly be interested in getting things rolling again.

Well, I don't know about driving force, but if the people already in the RP are willing to start back-up, surely this thing can live on for a while more, aye ? Like I said, I'd love to be a part of this thing, if ever it can back on track, it's just such a unique idea.

I attempted to garner some modicum of interest by soliciting in the "Roleplayers Wanted" area, but I received no response. And because there is a rule against double-posting, I can't bump the thread. >.>

Selothi, do you have any ideas about prospective methods of recruiting new members? I think we need to get a couple more Roleplayers that will consistently participate, other than myself, you and Circ.

I'm not sure what you mean by driving force, Circ, but certainly a small group of active players could resurrect this RP; or, if need be, recreate it from scratch.

Not really mate. If the RP recruitment thread doesn't work, there's not much else. Not like you're gonna advertise this thing through mass PMs ! Either that, or edit the tags to contain more info about the RP, so as to draw more people. Other than that, fingers are to be crossed.
