Orange here, one of Copper's Insiders. I know the rules and I will stick to them. Blog time.
Greetings, y'all. I am, as the disclaimer above said, Orange. I know that this space is usually reserved for Skye, but she's not here at the moment. I am.
A few weeks ago we had some issues with Insiders posting here on AS without supervision or permission. Copper about went nuts! She is incredibly protective of this place...and her place within the community. That led to a sign posted directly in our line of sight that declares that only three members of this System have permission to post on AS: Copper, Skye... and me.
Mostly I keep out of things. I read posts and occasionally suggest a comment, but I rarely do any commenting. If nothing else, I figure it's confusing enough to the community keeping track of two entities under one name (Copper and Skye). I don't mind staying backstage.
So why am I posting now? Mostly to blow off steam.
Yesterday was Easter. Nobody had a particularly good day. Most of the adults are still in hiding. For that matter, so are the kids. All that's left is sensible, reliable Orange to haul this body from A to B to C to D.
Maybe when Skye comes back from wherever she's hiding I can disappear for a while. Duty kept me from shattering yesterday. I still need to, but I won't until I know somebody's here to manage the body.
I'll be okay...later. But for now I'm just being stubborn. It will be a relief to crash and burn for a while.
Sometimes being the quiet, solid, dependable one sucks.
