TM 161: The Morning After 
11th-Feb-2007 02:04 am
Say what/Smoke's better than air
The morning after is a terrible phrase. Never means anything good. Which version do you want to hear? The morning hangovers? (Ow.) The morning debriefings? (Also ow.) The 2 AM near enough to morning and oh god she wants to cuddle? (I've got an early meeting. Really.) The morning she doesn't want to cuddle, wants nothing to do with you? Nothing you haven't heard before.

All right.

The morning after, I woke up at five AM to the sound of my alarm, and if I was smart I would have just unplugged the thing, but I wasn't, so I got some coffee, and then I went to find out whether or not I remembered how to tie a tie. Last time I wore a suit, it'd been for a funeral. I tightened up the noose. Got the new black coat out of the closet. Same one I'd worn yesterday, I only owned the one. And I'd like to say when I looked into the mirror I didn't recognize myself, that I looked like I was a different man or wearing a costume or some such, but I'd be lying. I looked in the mirror, I smiled. "You fucking sellout."

Welcome to the machine, Wisdom.

Dear Mun,

I've noticed that you have not updated your journal professor-w (i.e., responded to one of the TM topics) for the past four weeks. NOTE: Roleplay does not count as updating your journal, per the rules of the Theatrical Muse community.

If you have responded to one of the last four TM topics (and I missed your post, please forward the link to me. If you have not responded to a challenge, but would still like to continue participating in TM, please do the following:

1. REPLY TO THIS NOTE

2. RESPOND TO ONE OF THE MOST RECENT 4 TOPICS (#163, #164, #165 OR #166) BY NO LATER THAN 22nd February 2007.

3. FORWARD THE LINK OF YOUR POST TO ME.

Otherwise I will remove your muse from the TM community.

If you are having trouble meeting this commitment, but you still do want to remain in the TM community, please let me know and I will see what I can do. Real life always takes precedence over fannish activities. We just need to know that you are still interesting in remaining a member of the TM community, and get some idea of when you may be able to participate again. If you do need a hiatus, please let me know when you think that you will be able to participate again. We can put your muse on hiatus for that time period. If another member requests the character during that time period, we will email you to see if you still wish to participate in TM. At the end of the indicated hiatus period, we will also email you to see if you wish to participate in the TM community. At that time, if you do not respond and/or update your journal, we will remove your muse from the community.

You can find a list of the most recent challenges here:
