I have decided to write scenes from my weird dreams, starring my dead Cantr chars, and somehow compile them into a cohesive story.

It's that or a large-scale adaptation of the Blue-Blackrock War crossovered with Code Lyoko fanfiction.

Deal. :3

I'm at 9,023 words.
Not only do I not know whodunnit, I'm not sure what it was that was done.
There's friendship, a mysterious note, a secretive husband and a mute six year old. (So far.)

Nice, Snickie. Hope the suicidal guy lasts for a couple of thousand pages for you. But we not always the ones in control, are we?

Well it's Cantr-based just a bit. At least, some of the mechanisms and the characters and some of the events are. So the suicidal woman is going to be around for about 20 days though I might not put much down because she's in a mostly deserted town and is trying to starve herself, but I'm a bad player and keep her awake through the whole thing. XD
The heretic will make things interesting in regards to that last sentence. :3

No, the comma is not misplaced. Unfortunately. lol

Knowing the characters as well as I do is making this a huge pain to write. They're too much like me.
