Hey all. If you watch me/interact with me because of Monster High, then you should read this post. If you don't...then uh, you can disregard it as it won't really pertain to anything of interest to you xD
I've been thinking on many things for months now, and after talking to some friends and settling any doubts or worries I may have had about acting on some decisions I've finally made them.
I just want to say up front that this journal is not a cry for attention, it is not me telling anyone else they've done anything wrong (as nobody has, this is all on me), this is simply me telling everyone what I've decided and what changes are happening. No need to be worried or try and talk me out of it or anything of that like.
Anyway, guess I should stop beating around the bush and just say it already, huh?
: I am fully retiring from the Monster High RP/IC tumblrs. There are many factors playing into this decision and if you want them I am happy to discuss privately but I won't bore people with them here. Just know it's a personal choice and not because of anything anyone has done.
Just to assure everyone, I am ONLY retiring from the RP tumblrs, I'm still very much a member of the fandom and past the 4 chars mentioned below my chars are still around, still in whatever relationships they are in (unless the owner of the other chars choose to break them up) and I am still available to RP them privately over skype or notes or what have you.
: I am fully retiring the following characters from Monster High and moving them to different storylines of mien (which I will note next to their names). This change will also likely include full makeovers for the chars to make them fit where they are going or just because I feel they need the change.
- Callum MacArtain -Being moved to Survival After Dark. This new incarnation of him will be older and probably have the biggest makeover of them all.
- Laika Kewill - Being moved to Focused Enlightenment. Will not get too much of a drastic look change since I already love her looks now and she's romanti-goth which would fit the setting well enough. (although she may still get some tweaks and changes to her outfit depending on how I feel in the end.) May end up getting a slight retconning of her history and who her family is (making her fully original instead of the daughter of an ElfQuest character)
- Zaylia Graham - Being moved to Focused Enlightenment. She is moving with Laika and they will still be a couple there. Zaylia will be getting a big change in physical appearance though as well as retconning of her backstory.
- Mahatru Nuvash - Being moved to Survival After Dark. This incarnation will be older and a college professer. Not sure how much of a change he'll get makeover wise.
: I'm still mostly on hiatus from doing MH-related art. I may do some collabs involving chars from it, but there will be little official art from me past that. How much longer this will last I am uncertain, but I will come off it eventually!
Well I guess that's pretty much it. I thank you all for your time and your support/acceptance of my decisions should you give it. I will miss RPing on the tumblrs, but, this is a decision long-coming and is unfortunately the best one for me.
