I'm starting to think that my anti-depressants are working a tad too well. When you end up with a :D face for ages, you're either really happy or flipping around like a crazy bitch. Then again, my life has been kinda weird lately- I've got this weird sore patch on my mouth, I vacuumed and managed to bump into everything and drop the fucking thing on my foot, and my door handle stopped working, so in classic dad style, he removed it- but we don't have a replacement, so now I've got a hole in my door and it won't stay closed. My life has been pretty fuckin' odd.

Yeah, there's no point in this, I just wanted to remind you guys that this isn't just a spork-journal. On that note, I'll be trying to get my Three-Ring Binder MST's back, so keep yourselves updated!

OK, about the PPC: I've decided not to leave. I wrote a revised Article One for the Constitution that everyone seems to like (*blushes and wonders how the hell that happened*) and after a few chats on the IRC, I realised that I like the place and the people too much to go. 

And honestly... leaving feels like a cop-out. See, when the fight was going on, I said nothing. I justified it to myself by saying, 'Look, self, you don't have the full details, you don't know everyone involved, and with all this stuff about the Constitution going on, it's probably best for you to shut up and stay out of the way'. 

Here's the thing, though: I was wrong.

OK, I didn't have the full details, I didn't know everyone involved- for the longest time, I thought the bigot in question was just another random newbie (I didn't know until that thread hit that she'd actually been in the PPC longer than I had)- and I wasn't equipped to say anything about the Constitution. But I should have said something. I should have stood up and said 'Regardless of what the Constitution says, [bigot] is harassing and abusing Tray, and I personally will not stand for it' or some variant thereof. I didn't. I'm not going to go on a self-hating binge and be all 'If I'd said something, maybe Tray wouldn't have left!' because I know damn well that there's probably nothing I could have done that would have stopped him- and for all we know, leaving was actually good in his case. I don't know. But either way, I should have said something.

That's why I volunteered those rewrites. I did make a couple of posts on the Board where I stated that I'd have to leave if the situation wasn't rectified. But with the Constitution rewrites suggested and debated, that's where their part ended. Everyone was in favour of reworking the Constitution. Sure, I could have sat back on my smug, privileged arse and thought 'I don't need to do anything, I'm part of the injured party' when the reality is... no, I'm not. I mean, sure, the bigot was bitching about LGBT people, and given that Tray was my friend, I'm technically part of the injured party, but the truth is, I need to do something about it too. I have no right to sit back and be smug- I didn't get involved in the fight. Sitting back would just make me an arsehole. It'd make me someone trying to reap the benefits of something I was barely involved in. I have a responsibility, just like any other PPCer, to make sure that this shit doesn't happen again. I did some of it by rewriting it- it's not perfect, but it flat out states 'We won't tolerate bigotry and abuse'. In the future, I'll do my best to not sit out of fights where I really could do something. 

So, yeah. Mission rewrites may not be any time soon, but I'll get back to MSTing the Three-Ring Binder stories for the lulz. Should be fun.

I may end up leaving the PPC. I know I said this before, but this time it's serious. 

For those who don't know: a recent situation with a known bigot asking for Permission escalated into a fight. Several LGBT members and LGBT-supporting members openly objected to the bigot's presence and opinions. And several older members objected to their refusal to allow her the opinion. 

This ended badly, because Tray- a guy I really fucking like- was, in effect, not allowed to object to the opinion of a cunt whose bullshit drove him to try suicide. And he left. And about five other people, not including myself, have either pledged to leave or are seriously considering it. Either way, I've lost some friends because this stupid fucking cunt couldn't keep her mouth shut and realise how unwelcome her opinions are.

If this isn't fixed, I'm leaving. If it is, I might stay. Might. I think there's about a 90% chance of leaving. And if this stupid bitch ever posts again, I will fucking rip her to shreds.

Just making it official- consider me on hiatus from the PPC, return date unknown. At this point, my emotional state is such that I honestly can't say I'll be in any kind of state to finish rewriting my missions any time soon, and while I'll still be on the Board and occasionally the IRC, I just can't say I'm active.

Also, I'm going to take down my fourth mission. That's the one I fucked up the most, I don't like it being up.

Edited the titles of my first two MST's- they weren't funny enough. I'm basically going for the longest, funniest titles I can find, and they're just going to get worse.

Also, despite the sheer rapey dissonance of the lyrics, I now love Maroon 5's song 'One More Night'.

And now DML's left, too. This is turning into the Asylum all over again. I need a reason to stay, or I'm out.

*sigh*

I'm thinking of leaving the PPC.

This is just to say that I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox I will be rewriting all (excepting my MST's and possibly the Halloween Co-Write) of my PPC works over an undefined period. Could be a couple of weeks (God knows I've got fuck all else to do), could be a month. But yeah. Expect changes.

This mission has been removed. It may or may not return at some point in the future.
