Blurred Lines totals:
Thank you all for so much dedication, to both your characters and this game. I could never have held things together for nineteen months without each and every one of you. You volunteered for plot -- you volunteered plot -- and you worked together to produce a story arc that has been as exhilirating as it has devastating. I have never been in a dark game with so much warmth and humour and yet that still displays, in its raw horror, the amount of pain and suffering that goes into fervent conviction and the tearing apart of families. This was more than just Harry Potter, this was the creation of real people with real lives and real families. We have laughed together and cried together and I can't imagine anything that I would have changed.
Ashley, Chels, Kei -- thank you for all your help modding when I was too overwhelmed or incapacitated. You are responsible for the majority of adds and kudos goes to you for being far more timely and reliable than I.
Ashley, Sam, Ali, Chel, Bree, Faith, Tyra -- thank you for giving me shoulders to cry on, words of advice, plot ideas, and god knows what else, BL wouldn't have been possible without your personal support.
Alicia, Abby, Gina, Ruby, Jacqueline, Kei, Faith, Jen, Alter, Mimi, Ashley, Kat -- thank you for taking on the thankless job of providing the purist society women. Without them, a great deal of the culture and depth that is so inherent in our death eaters would be utterly lacking. Thank you for your gorgeous social event posts and your tireless efforts on the womens' society. You aren't recognised enough for how much work you have done.
Kati, Manda, Ali, Poufy, Hannah -- thank you for your amazing inner circle members. The humour and conflict all fell so perfectly into place, it is impossible to believe these boys didn't grow up together or that we didn't all pick them up at the same time. You were all wonderful, and I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to play Rodolphus in the environment you made.
Ange, Kassie, Mango -- thank you for returning to BL for one last huzzah. We were so happy to have you.
Dee, Chels, Penny, Rory, Kaitlin, Carrah, Cate, Kira, Raisa -- you're no longer here, but I want you to know how grateful I am for your respective contributions to the game. Each one of you brought brilliant characters to the table, and we miss you terribly.
Ashley, Bree, Poufy, Sam, Sabrina -- I just want to set aside a special thank you to you for your absolutely tireless efforts to push this game, its plot, its players, and its lazy mod forward. The amount of time and effort you spent here has not gone unappreciated.
Ashley, Bree, Sabrina -- I am awe-stricken that you were able to stay so active given the crap going on in your lives over the last year and a half. Sabrina, I thought we were going to have to break your fingers to get you to your wedding, woman! Bree, we are so happy to have HJ in our lives. Ashley, you have our love and support from the bottom of our hearts, always.
Zee, Gia, Claudie, Kei, Kat, Alya -- Thank you for combatting time zones and managing to contribute so fully to this game despite the majority of the game being in American timezones. The hours you guys have spent way past your bedtimes or not sleeping at all to participate in plot is incredible (though that goes for a lot of you people in EST as well).
Xan, Gina, Kei, Ashley, Kati, Sabrina, Emily -- Thank you a thousand times over for your contributions to the media community. This game would not have been the same without the propaganda, sensationalism, and raw truth of the war. I never would have been able to make it without you. Ashley & Kati, a special thanks for bailing me out over and over with Resistance Radio.
Megs, Jen -- Thank you for coming in so late in the game and combatting the beast that is BL. That you two were able to fit in so well and so quickly is a testament to your amazing personalities and dedication to your characters.
Kat -- Thank you for all your help with Dumbledore way back in the beginning of game. Your invaluable help was what allowed me to get a good enough feel on him to play that amazing Dumblemort duel.
Gia, Meg -- Thank you for giving the Longbottoms the activity and the send off they deserved.
Bree, Claudie, Poufy -- Thank you for making the Marauders real people that I've actually come to like and grieve for. You make their relationships and conflicts seem real and gripping and that is not common.
Rachel -- Thank you for helping me create BL. Thank you for the roleplay that made my expectations so high, that made me write, that made me a better, more thoughtful person. Thank you for feeding me when I was too poor to scrape by. Thank you for midnight talks to calm me down. Thank you for being so selfless. Thank you for late night pizza. Thank you for being one of the best friends I have ever made through rp.
Ali -- Thank you for feeding and boozing me and keeping me company. You should move in with me, seriously. Commute shmamute.
Sam -- I never would have gotten through this without you. I can't wait to see your rear parked on my porch.
Ashley -- I don't have enough words for how grateful I am to have met you and roleplayed with you. You astound me endlessly.
Thank you for making my first time modding unforgettable. Thank you for helping me create and complete this story arc. Thank you for everything.
An epilogue comm has been created (blurred_epilog ) for you to post in.
Nothing else may be posted in your journals or in the comms. If you are determined to reuse a journal name, please let me know and maybe we can work out a rename or something. I'd like to preserve the game as is if possible.
What can be posted in the epilogue comm?
Anything relating to your characters, dead or alive,'s future. You can have Cloud reunions for those who are dead, journal entries (with comments!), logs, narratives, letters, pictures, ooc posts, whatever you want. The comm is open so that people who are no longer at BL can use it, if their character has not been replaced.
There are no weapons (yes I'm looking at you, Bella), wands, diseases, injuries, or needs on the cloud. People hang out at their leisure and watch people below. When they are done, they can dissipate off to whatever place their particular religion has set forth for them.
