Last night was a dinner party at Kimeru's house. For those who did not have the ... er, who weren't there, Araki had a personal breakdown and attempted something. I'm sure those involved already know the story, and those who weren't can guess what it was.
At any rate. As the moderator of this community, and having been there, I felt something needed to be said. The ... story that played out was not the original intention of anyone when the idea for the party came up. In fact, the idea was to have a small informal gathering and just hang out, nothing like what happened. Araki-mun and I (and Katou-mun, as well) have had long talks during and after the chat, and Araki-mun has confirmed that she hadn't planned it beforehand, and it got out of hand before she could stop it.
As the moderator present at the party, I should have said something to stop it, or to curtail it, or something. However, to those at the party I was MIA (I was babysitting and trying to keep up with the chat) as well as having a serious personal crisis, of which the situation in the party did not help. I have failed in that capacity as a moderator, and for that I can only apologize and hope that I didn't offend people.
Araki-mun has informed me that for the next few days she is stepping back and taking a break from the RP. I will be around, however, if you have a personal issue about things and want to talk about it to me -- whether it be an attack on me for not having been up on things, or to clear up misunderstandings. Due to the subject matter, if you would like the full story feel free to talk to me.
Everyone. I'm sorry that this happened; I'm sorry I didn't step up in my capacity to curtail or stop this sooner. Things are being worked out and hopefully we'll be back to our usual "omgwtf who's sleeping with who and who's hooking up with whom?!" insanity that started us all off. For all intents and purposes, last night is dead and I -- as well as the others involved -- would really appreciate if the matter were, in this RP's context, not taken up again. The official line is, despite what happened, the last part of the chat, from Araki's sudden implosion to the end, is null and void. Araki is currently 'on vacation' from 'emo-ness', in Araki-mun's words. He's talking to Kimeru, so he won't be out of the loop entirely when he returns.
As the moderators of this community have had very close personal ties with this sort of situation, THIS IS THE ONLY BANNED TOPIC IN THE COMMUNITY. It's becoming far too common and affects a lot of us personally, so to make it easier for us please, DO NOT bring it up.
