Also, I don't think it's even been a day yet in the RP so honestly you should be fine with him coming in late. I've had to resort to unspecific dates on my IC posts.


The first IC day is ending, so you can introduce your new characters tomorrow. Monday that is. So if anybody has loose ends, I suggest you tie them up so we can get to the next IC day.

Are you going to do each day based on a period of time? One or two IRL days is an RP day or something like that? Or are you just going to decide when a new day is?

Haha it caught me off guard!

I do have one question: when Nova responds and Phil and Marlon get into their hiding positions, could we make those posts prior to the post you just made about Tom kissing his rival? Or would that have happened as they are talking while exiting the taxi?

I'll admit I rushed it a bit, I want to get IC day 1 over. Don't change your posts, just post their reactions to following him, and seeing the kiss.

Gerard emailed his draft to his bosses for approval; he's not the type to come up with more work for himself while he waits on that.

Also would he have seen either person from your latest IC post whilst he was at the Ethical Chickpea?

Sorry for the long absence. School was back on again, and I was consumed by that. I kind of forgot about NS in the mean time. Anyway I'm back now, that is until I have some big assignment to finish.

I'll finish catching up on the IC thread tomorrow, and I'll try to get a post afterwards. But I gather we're at Day 2, and Solomon wants Martha to do some interviews. Anyway that Ward-Stevens scandal was quite something.
