So, I guess we all knew that this was coming. Ever since the end of last year, none of us have had a great deal of time, and it's been tough to keep the game going. For my part in that, I apologise.
Without meaning to make excuses, it's just... RL, you know? New job, new hours, it doesn't leave much time for writing. Shelley's moved to a whole new town, and Veronica's getting ready for the most important exams she'll take in her life, so yeah. Absent mods, but absent for a reason.
It seems a shame to just let the game wither away, given all of the good times it's given us over the years. I don't think I'll ever forget staying up all night with you guys on Skype, getting outrageously drunk while still managing to post. Or having stupid conversations about phallic objects when I'm supposed to be working, or secretly sneaking off for an external "meeting", when really, I just went to flesh out the last part of a one-shot I really wanted to post.
Or that great little rush I've had so many times when there are loads of us in chat, I have about 50 threads going on, and everyone's tagging. That was what it was all about, for me.
And you know what? I'm really, really going to miss the game. It had its extreme highs and low lows, but overall, it's the best thing that I've ever created, and you guys are some of the best people I've ever met. I'll always be grateful that you took this silly idea about witches we all had one summer a few years ago, and took it way beyond anything we could have ever imagined.
So, as of now, Bound Secrets is officially on indefinite hiatus. It'll be open for everyone to post if they'd like to, but we won't be actively moderating or accepting any new apps/characters.
There's a chance that we might re-open it in the future if there's enough interest, or if our personal lives stabilise enough to allow it. If you want this, let us know.
Hopefully we can all stay in touch, and if you guys are ever in any cool games, look me up. I can do a great sort-of-not-quite active character occasionally. I'm on Skype under thisisrundle.
So, from the very bottom of all of our hearts, thank you for everything. We love you all.
Look out for an extra-special one-shot coming in the next few days.
James, Veronica and Shelley.
