Right, hi. Here goes.
It’s almost fitting, I think, that this would be Sebastian’s 19,501st post. Clearly the last year and a half have been super crazy for Bas and I, and my exploration of one of my most favourite characters. Ever. So, it’s with a lot of sadness (and spamming multiple people with a dozen sad faces) that I have to say it’s time for me to let my baby rest. (Dw, not planning to kill him.) We’ve (Seb and I) had a good run but it’s been hard for us recently, and it’s really not fair to stay and not be as active as we used to be.
TMH has been the one of the best experiences for me. I started roleplaying at thirteen, it’s been four years now, and I’m an emotional muffin over leaving a group that have offered me sanity and support and ALL of that super lame stuff for 1.5 years. (Like, seriously, you guys really helped me through difficult teenage angst and you probably didn’t even realise, so thank you.) And through various conversations with roleplayers and their characters alike, I’ve picked up a way of writing that I’m almost proud of? Which is something I’m only going to say once - because I hate it normally (I’m the worst with paras!).
Sebastian’s been super difficult to most people. (I didn’t plan for him to be as such, but characterisation came calling and wouldn’t take no for an answer.) He’s arrogant as all hell, argumentative, far too sexual, a spoiled brat, but I was gifted the opportunity to allow interactions and friendships to help him grow. And he grew a lot. He was still all of those things, but he also managed to be dorky and adorable and, Jesus, he’s accidentally cried on SO many people. He made a lot of tight friendships, lost an equal amount, slept with as many people as possible (*waggles eyebrows!*) and found a few enemies along the way. And he’s also had two very beautiful relationships, each with their own advantages and setbacks, but the fact he’s grown enough for that is just whoa, man, WHOoOa! For my own sanity and head-canoning Bas stayed with Hunter somehow. (I’m not saying it’s the healthiest or greatest relationship but
ErinRiley and I love what we set up and their dynamic makes me simultaneously squeal and cry and only like 0.00008% of relationships are actually always good.) He stayed with Hunter for his arms and the opportunity to watch that gorgeous piece of crap carrying a tiny baby in them. Yes. I happen to sorta think they’re soulmates, man. (Doing the do well into their sixties!) For HC purposes, he also grew up a little and reconnected with the few people he’s pushed away recently. Just because.
So, I want to thank all the roleplayers, past and present, that I’ve had the pleasure to create havoc with and I’d like to apologise if anything Butt has said has hurt a roleplayer, not their character. That was never my intention. I’d like to thank my few followers for taking an interest in my layer-y, annoying way of playing Bas. I really hope TMH continues to sail for a long time and any kinks in the fabric are ironed out sooner rather than later. (:
I really tried to be formal and stay away from hyperboles, but apparently that’s an impossible feat. I also ended up intoning too much of myself into the simple task of saying goodbye. I’ll be around for a couple of days to answer questions, if anyone has any, and swap Skypes or something, if anyone wants to. I may even find my AIM password, if anyone would rather have that.
I loooooove you all, but it’s time to go. Best wishes. ♥
I love you.
I love you, too.
Just curious. You seem to have a really full schedule.
Just curious question: Do you not like me or something?
Hi. I’d really prefer it if you didn’t take everything Hunt says personally. He wouldn’t talk to you if he didn’t like you.
You’re never disgusting to me. You’re mine, I’m yours, and we had to fight hard for what we have now. But thank you for telling me again. I’ll never get tired of hearing you say it.
Say it back.
With pleasure, baby.
Mm. I’m sure. Just… I really love you, okay? I just need you to remember that. Even when I’m.. disgusting to during practice or disgusting to you in general, which is a lot; I love you.
Just thought I’d be a little proactive for once.
I love you.
I love you, too. Now. Come here. Wreck me.
We should give that a try one of these weekends. We’ll wait for Jeff to be out and then I can pretend to come home after a long day. Does that sound fun or is it just a little too ridiculous?
And to save you the bother of asking: yes I’m serious, no I don’t secretly wish you were a woman, and no I don’t really want you to give up your life and your hopes and dreams to take care of my house in the future. Just so we have all those bases covered.
It sounds fun, baby.
… Thank you for clarifying, Clarifyington.
I’m sure I could manage as long as they stay in dream-form.
Mm. I guess if you’re the one I woke up to, you’re the one who would feel the full brunt of what my sex dreams do to me.
Unless you want me dreaming of orgies, do not.
Perhaps I do.
It wouldn’t make you jealous?
If you were happy, then I’d be happy.
So, you would be happy with me being your little housewife? I can even wear an apron all day, and nothing else.
