The Dollsyhouse

On The Future of Dollsy

Note the word 'future'. That implies something to come. Because as far as I'm concerned, there's still hope. I know there are still people interested in at least getting some closure-- myself included. So I'm going to bring that to you.

Miscommunication aside, no one is at fault-- though I could have stepped up to the plate sooner, most likely. But now we've sorted things out, and we've got a game plan.

In a short time-- sometime soon, but you know how life gets this time of year -- the official, definitive End Game will commence, though you guys were already well on your way. The plot will come to an end.

Who's with me?


Technically, I probably don't have to do this. Officially, I'm not a player anymore, or even a mod--I've been sticking around purely on a volunteer basis to help Cait and Mio with their duties. But with Mio putting up her post, I figure this is the right thing to do.

So to that effect, I'm dropping too. I don't have any characters anymore for this change to affect, and I don't have the official mod title to renounce anymore, but I'm ending my volunteer efforts and my involvement with the plot and maintenance of Dollsy as a whole. To put it briefly, the modding situation and its plot and communication problems here have become intolerable. After a solid two and a half weeks of trying to get the necessary plot details to help move this game through its final phase to the appropriate ending that character actions had led to--and over a year of struggling to maintain the game and its plot with the game's head mod almost completely absent and only providing minimal and occasional information--, and getting absolutely none of the promised information, I've had all of these issues that I can handle.

This is definitely in no way a reflection on the game itself, or any of you. I love all of you guys, and I love Dollsy--and for the most part, it'd be hard to be prouder of the game than I already am; I've really enjoyed the premise and plot, the characters I've played here and the relationships they've built, and the OOC atmosphere and the relations I've built up with so many wonderful and incredible players; I've made a ton of friends here, and I adore every one of you, and I hope to be able to keep in contact and play with you all still. It's been a fantastic two and change years, and a pretty impressive run, I think, even if it's stalled so very close to the ending--this is the first game of mine that's ever survived past infancy, and I'm not exactly sure how that happened, but it's probably thanks to all of you; I highly doubt I'll ever find a place with an OOC atmosphere and group of players that I love so much, or that I'll be attempting to mod any other games in the near future.

At any rate, that means game matters are now left in Cait's capable hands; if you have any further questions or concerns or needs regarding Dollsy itself now, please direct them to her, or to Mel if you can reach her; I don't mind fielding questions about the drop itself, though. As for me, please feel free to email or IM me or just come chat and poke me in general at any time! Just because I'm letting go of this responsibility doesn't mean in any way that I want to stop talking with you all; I'd love to stay in touch, and to be able to play with all of you more, so by all means, tell me where else you people are! You can reach me at Infinity Pikachu on AIM, and I'll still hang around the dollsyooc chat if it remains active. I love you all, so stay awesome, and hopefully I'll catch you on the flip side~!



And no one is surprised.

This was a very hard decision for me to make. It breaks my heart to do it and so I put it off for as long as I could, but I just ended up worse off for it, both when it came to activity and my own personal health. For that I apologize, especially to my wonderful castmates (ilu Kuu. You too, Cait. So many hearts for both of you and your muses. ♥ ♥ ♥) and those that I've held up plot wise, but I'll be dropping both as a player and as a mod.

I've loved this game since the day I joined it. I love the players, the plot, the characters, the atmosphere, everything about it. That much hasn't changed. But honestly, without getting into details, I have what have problem to be irreparable problems with the modding part of this game (don't worry, it's nothing that any of you guys did) that have kept me from being active here or anywhere else.

If any of you haven't already and would like to, please add gunned to your friend's list and gunned on plurk as well. You can also always hit me up on AIM at tusnderely.

I'm so glad that I was able to meet so many wonderful people here; I know that I'll never be able to find another game like this one. Thank you all for a wonderful two years--my only regret is that it didn't last even longer. I love you all. ♥

This affects Mio Amakura (lingeringscent), Marta Lualdi (fangirls), Ange Ushiromiya (cagedfate) and Mafuyu Hinasaki (himurobound).

I probably should have made this post earlier this week. 9-9

Going on hiatus in order to finish some school papers and to brainstorm some ideas for posts herp derp. I'll get back to the tags I owe people when I get back. \o7

The characters affected are Kei, Sonic, Link and Richter. Catch you all when I finish punching these papers into the submission box. o9


Hey guy's. sorry I've been AWOL for like ages. Things have been super hectic lately with both internet problems, and family problems, which thankfully, have finally calmed down.

I know I dissapeared not long after joinging, so I wasn't in too many threads, but I apologise to the people who were in threads that I abandoned.

Anyway, I'm back now, and hopefully will be back for a good while at least.

Activity Check

Activity Check!

To check in, just reply to this post with a list of your characters (include their journal names) and the date of and a link to their last comment/post. It should end up looking like this:

Plot, plot, plot, poll.

As many of you know, thedollsyhouse is a plot driven RP and has several possible endings. One of those endings has been uncovered and has the potential to be reached at any time.

However! There will be a sequel. So, my question for everyone is simple: How many of you think are interested in a sequel/would want to play at one?

Second...IF YOUR CHARACTER HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THE QUEST FOR LIST ITEMS AND/OR ARE INTERESTED IN THE ENDING PLOT, PLEASE COMMENT HERE. I need to talk to you guys. The same goes for those of you who were involved in the envelope plot.
