I don't mean to be picky, but a few of you are getting a little confused with your past/present tenses. Please just pick one. d: When posting a post, re-read it aloud to make sure it makes sense to you. I always find that's a good way to make mistakes as reading it in your head makes you skip over words.

I'm in a library atm, reading all your posts so hopefully i can write and post my own before my 100mb is up. XD

Fff, I apologize if the past/present tense mix up is me. I have a tendency to do it a lot and I always hope to catch most of them through editing but even then a few slip by.

Anyway, we're suppose to mingle as well so if anyone wants to "mingle" with Ari just let me know!

    Excuse my lack of knowledge pertaining to literacy, but what are these past/present tenses of which you speak :x?

    @Retro Bug We can mingle after the thieves are rounded up. I just finished posting.

      @Courage:

      Past tense is describing things that happened in the past.

      Present tense is describing things that are happening now.

      Tense are also things you use when going camping.

      FOR INSTANCE, "She moved over to the orange chair while holding her laptop," is past tense (and my preferred writing tense O: ) and "she moves over to the orange chair and holds her laptop," is present tense. It's not extremely common, but I've seen it used many times here before. It's most commonly seen in 'choose your own adventure' books, I think.

          Everything's looking great so far - the mixture of 1st/3rd person tenses in a couple of posts are a bit odd in contrast with the rest of the story but so far everything's been really exciting to read - Oda in particular has certainly been getting up to a lot! I've been busy with exams so haven't had a chance to read every single post yet, but finals finish on Thursday so I can't wait to read the rest then. Still waiting on one character to post but he said he's busy with finals too so that's fine - just sucks a little that it'll be hard to include him (and some have finished all together) so once your thief is dealt with, return to the mansion (or stay in town for a while longer whilst waiting) to get ready for the ball and interact with as many characters as possible c:

          Ummm.. has everyone forgotten that Aerous is 25? You're all treating him like a child :'(

          Also would it be fine for Aerous to be on guard duty at the ball or does he actually have to participate in it?

              I checked his age and his image before my last post just to be sure. He just gives off a certain impression.

              Who still needs to beat their/take on a thief? Machomuu, Xlugon Pyro, and A_K123? Maybe the four siblings as well?

              Hmm, well I'll have Ari head back to the mansion somewhat soon and hopefully encounter some lovely people on the way.

                WELL! The de Telarius' are on the boat and have their own four thieves. I've written a post for Beck of him facing of an exceptionally large one and because he's a useless sod, he's now getting strangled. YAY! As far as I know, the other guys are working on a post as well. But Supervegeta has finals (midterms? idek im not a north hemispherian), Raikiri has jetlag and Ichiro is working full time so they might be a little later.

                ME ON THE OTHER HAND? I HAVE LOADS OF TIME.

                Up to you - it'd make sense to have some Sword members on security so if you want to take that role then be my guest, as long as he's at the ball and is present when the announcement is made that's fine by me. :)

                Good luck to everyone with exams! My last one is tomorrow so I'll be active like normal again soon :)

                Why don't you ask her the name of the dog at the ball? I'm sure she has a good one.

                Also Annabell is in the mansion at the moment. She has a few bad cuts but her ego is much to high to actually care.

I've written a post for Beck of him facing of an exceptionally large one and because he's a useless sod, he's now getting strangled. YAY! As far as I know, the other guys are working on a post as well. But Supervegeta has finals (midterms? idek im not a north hemispherian), Raikiri has jetlag and Ichiro is working full time so they might be a little later.

                ME ON THE OTHER HAND? I HAVE LOADS OF TIME.
                Ahaha, I loved the Beck post. He seems too gentle! Marcus needs to toughen him up for sure. All tests during the semester are called midterms/exams then at the end of the semester the final final tests are called finals. :O Where are you from?

                Yay people at the mansion~ I think I'll write up a post for Ari then!

                Ok I got that dang post in, Skymin, now don't expect any other activity from me until Sunday when my finals are all over. Everyone else, good luck with their own.

                Skymin and I are in the Southern Hemisphere, so our finals are in October/November. Our University years start in March.

                And post is up. XD
