    I love playing Runescape, reading (mainly science fantasy/sci fi), and writing (hence the RP stuffs). I'm also a wee bitty obsessed with all things fibre related as I knit, spin, crochet, felt and sew. Distraction is likely when encountering sheepies, bunnies and alpaca.

  1. The highest annual death rate in the UK from flu related illnesses over the last 5 flu seasons stands about 28 thousand. The average over that whole period is roughly 17 thousand per annum. We're currently over 44 thousand deaths, and still rising, from coronavirus. After only 4-5 months of the year. It is not comparable to an extra bad flu season by any stretch of the imagination. And from the various sources I can find regarding the US, the same is true there. The MD of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease told Congress that the US annual mortality rate from flu is only about 0.1% and that coronavirus is 10 times more lethal. The most abhorrent attitude throughout this entire episode for me, so far, both from the general public and the media/Government, has been this dismissal of anyone in so-called" high risk groups". Making out as though they are acceptable collateral damage and "just to be expected/accepted". This back slapping, "I'm alright, Jack", approach from anyone not in those groups is simply sickening. As always money/greed/economic concerns are used as a justification to ignore simple common sense. Elgee is absolutely on the nail with the WoT/GoT analogy. People in power or positions of privilege will always do whatever it takes to safeguard themselves first and foremost and screw the rest of us. I'm completely with Liitha on this one and thank heavens we have a First Minister who uses her head and doesn't just follow the UK Government like a sheep.
  2. Urghh *flops onto a comfy sofa* ...just as I thought I was going to get peace and time to spend at DM, we have another family bereavement as the kid's grandpa passed away. Not the easiest thing to get through in the current situation with lockdown I can tell you. (It was not a virus related death I hasten to add.) Anyway, hoping I have some breathing space now. Everyone well?
  3. The Blues are very lucky! Congrats @Hayl3y. Our loss is their gain and I know you'll do them proud. 🙂 *snugglebites* And also, welcome home, it's been too long. 🥰
  4. Congratulations, haycraftd! Good job. 🙂 Mumsy will be pleased to have more active lackeys...umm...serving Wardies around.
  5. Congrats Lii *snugglebites* can't say I'm shocked by this lol. 😉
  6. Welcome @Risyn_Mael, hope you'll enjoy writing with us here at DM. Your bio has now been CC'd and approved. You're free to start your intro RP. I'll be inviting you to the private WT board.
  7. I'm going to approve this and assume, as the writer you do know she can't just *decide" to become an Aes Sedai. It's not clear whether the character knows she'll have to undergo testing but presumably you do so I'll let that pass. Enjoy writing.
  8. Aha, Cass beat me to it. Consider this approved, very nicely written.
  9. Welcome Paige and my apologies for the delay in getting to your bio. I've been dealing with a family bereavement which was wholly unexpected. Just about to post your bio for approval now. Hope you enjoy being part of our DM family. 😊 Edited to add: Scrub that! Cass beat me to it so it has been approved. Feel free to start your arrival RP. I'll invite you to the private Club board for the WT and you can ask any AS to RP with you or you can solo RP. Activity can be a bit sporadic so not sure who is around right now.
  10. That's cool, Elessar. Thanks for checking in and letting me know you're still here etc. Burn out certainly happens after a bout of writing like that! We'll still be here when you feel like jumping back in.
  11. Nice to see you. I remember you, so welcome back. If I can help, as RP Leader, or even if you just want to talk it over with someone, drop me a PM. Ok? Possible that some of those people are no longer active as we're a small group at the moment.
  12. Not giving you a present! With all the amazing bondeds you have, you don't really need anything else...right? Happy Birthday, sis. Hope your special day was as wonderful as you. Love ya xx
  13. Thanks for the responses, folks. :) It's fine, Arie. I'm not much better. As long as I know people are around and we can shout them if necessary. Cass, I know Jagen has at least one Seanchan char, probably more. Liitha and Lih-Lyh did too although not sure if the chars are active off hand.
