Effective immediately DancesWithGrenades and ShamanYuri have dropped the game. Both are leaving with honor and are able to come back at any point in the future that life settles down and allows them to do so. But, they've asked me to write them out of the story as far back as Date Night which means all posts in Long Kiss Goodbye that reference them will have to be edited please. This also means that no one is strapped to a wall in the suborbital flight, which for me is a bummer because I'd thought it was funny. Grenades & Cat, you will both definitely be missed.
Thanks for your understanding, Smiles. It's been crazy busy in the interim but I am now searching for something called a "life". Everyone, even my boss, keeps telling me I need this mysterious object. The last time I remember seeing something similar to its description it was here. So under the heading of "look where you last saw something when you've lost it" I am looking back here. :-)
For now I'll be an audience, but when an opportunity evolves where Firefly can slip back in, and assuming you're still willing, I'd love to rejoin the fray.
