I have... completely disappeared from this thread. My deepest apologies, but life has been hectic, oof.

@Cas, nah, you guessed wrong! It's Silent Hill. :D

Also, given that 100 DoS just ended (well, it ended 9 days ago; I'm so fast, haha), I'd love to congratulate everyone who has participated (and those, who had decided to sit this year out, I humbly invite you do participate next year!) and for earning some needed house points for us. We're currently at the 3rd spot from all x4 houses, but I'm sure after NaNo, the three remaining issues of Afflatus and an upcoming winter event, we can still kick some ass! ♥

On a separate note, a big congratulations to rimbaud for passing a milestone and completing 50+ prompts for 100 DoS! We're really proud of you! :)

P.S. if anyone still wants to write more after 100 DoS, one of our attendants (sylver), has made a really nice list of prompts over on Twitter for us to do!

Hello again!

Even though there are only 6 days left of September, after careful consideration (as well as the facts that some of you might be wishing for prompts after 100 DoS), we have decided to revive our very own Prompt Thread! Now, we're voting for the prompt of next month, October, and you have more to choose from!

Given that the thread had been on hiatus since June because of 100 DoS, we decided to give two variants of every category (words, dialogue, songs), so there's more variety. Everyone has x3 votes, so please choose carefully and vote for your favourites! The prompt will be announced on the 1st of October. :)

Edit;; the prompt has been posted! As well as that, we have a brand new Holiday Thread ran by our lovely Cas; you should definitely check it out! ♥

Okay listen, so I know I’m late to the party on this but hear me out.

Has anyone watched Haunting at Hill House? ono I’m obsessed. The characters are so complicated and well developed. Gives me so much muse and so many ideas for our Halloween activity >:}

Oof, I haven't seen it, sadly!! Feel free to gush to me about it if you want to, haha!! ♥

Also, I'd love to alert everyone about our newest event! Given how the month of October is meant to celebrate the month of Inktober, where you draw a certain drawing based on a prompt for each day, AS has decided to follow in the tradition and make a little house-oriented competition of our own!

You can find the main thread here (a.k.a. where to post your creations) and the rules are in the link above! Hoping to see lots of pretty creations! :D

Listen Kami, I am not artistically inclined. I will not embarrass our house by participating in Inktober. ene

But Haunting of Hill House... The twins. I can’t. All of the characters though, super complex and well developed. Makes me so happy eue AND THERES A SECOND SEASON WOOHOO.

I can't art, but I do hope some of our artistically inclined housemates do post. I love looking at others art.

I'm hoping to have a little time to post in one or both of the house activities this month that I haven't already. I have ideas for both but nothing solid enough to start posting sadly. I love this month so much!

hey all! just gonna introduce myself real quick.

Name/Nickname: arc, laszlo or laz.
Age/Gender: twenty years old & non-binary (they/them or he/him is perf)
Small details about yourself: i'm a horrible cook lmao, i could burn water -- and i do. i do know how to make a dang good chocolate cake because that is my one comfort food.
i'm surrounded by an ocean and fish every summer but i don't know how to swim well?? i just hate being soaked in general lmao. water = bad time.
i've been writing for about a decade now and i love worldbuilding, character designing, and just having a good ol' time with my friends who also write.
How do you feel about being a fox: lmao i was sorted into sagacitas on my old account to but never got around to verifying myself. i honestly thought i would be vipera this time around because of how much i've changed within the time i last took the test. i was pleasantly surprised that i'm still a sagacitas!

p.s. Kami, thank you for the form. i probably would've procrastinated on introducing myself if you hadn't provided something lol
