I kind of like the IC thread we have now. :)

Yeah ditto. Advertising for new charries sounds like a plan though.

So Atticus and Hawks assumed to be at the gate? Curious since we've been so quiet. Laine, Karenza and Cooper are there already.

Irish Wolf Says: Anyways, once we're done here, shall I make a Tab, see if we can drum up a few new players (and yes, I do try to screen new players but I will gamble, like I did with Gaze, I couldn't find anything written in character from you) or shall I just make a new IC thread?



Be careful what you wish for Wolf. You just don’t know what will crawl out of the shadows. I always said there was no way Alistair could ever be integrated back into society. But, a circus?......He may just fit in with a travelling menagerie of freaks just like him. Well, we all know there is nobody quite like the big guy, but you know what I mean.

Al hasn't eaten in quite some time either so he could very well over indulge.
I'm feeling the urge to come out of retirement.

Is this a friend? Do they have pre-existing mental health problems? If you think they're actively planning suicide and are likely to go through with it, you need to get them to see their doctor or to call (the American equivalent of) your local mental health crisis team. You're not going to be able to 'talk them down' without tackling the issues that underlie the problem so doing these things is very important. In the meantime, offer them as much help and support as you can and be an impartial non-judgemental ear. Try and convince them to tell their close family and think very carefully about whether you need to break their confidence and tell someone else without their permission.

As for experience- I'm a medical student and I meet people with mental illness almost every day, not to mention having suffered from clinical depression myself. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to talk.

I agree with Northern. There is no talking them down. I helped a friend who was very close to taking her own life. In Canada, family can have the person checked in and assessed at the hospital. Minimum 24 hour hold. I was not her family so I didn't have that ability. She and I talked for hours. The best I can say is be a good listener. It was all I could do and when she asked for help, which was not easy, I held her hand as she checked herself into the hospital.

All you can really do is listen and remind them that you aren't judging them and will be there for them.

Thats some heavy stuff there Gaze. I don't think there is much you can do, other then what Nothern and Skull have already said, be a good listener and remind your friend that your there for them and that there are people who care for them.

You know my position on this Gaze and I suggest you drop the topic. This female's mind sounds made up and you have no business attempting to dictate how someone else wants to live or die. She chose her hill, now allow her to die on it in freaking peace.

@Irish: How should we respond to your post? Should our characters greet the King separately? It might take a while if we do that, since you will have to post in between each of our posts. I'm totally cornering Hawks before the greeting session ends. :D

I kinda left it open for Northern to make a post with the princess and our favorite grumpy tattooed man. If you want your character to greet the king, feel free or you can wait until I move us along.
