She thought that they weren't going back to the little town. The place was swarming with people, as she and Aaron would remember from the second day. But now they were going back, for whatever reason. Apparently he wanted gas. Gas? Now where were they going to find that? Even in the village they would at least turn off the gas. She never really thought that there would be gas here. Why would there be? It had to be a pretty huge chance that there would be something there.

But she had to follow them at least. Who knew what Aaron would get up to next time? He'd probably make another death trap on accident. She had to be there in case something dangerous happened again, like what happened with Milo. Because frankly, she had lost enough friends here, she didn't want to-



That wasn't a term people used very often in regards to Aileen. She was usually the loner bitch, always sitting by herself reading. But could she call them friends? Was Reika a friend? Was Trevor a friend? Or Sarah? What about Melissa, or Tom, or Lily, or Richard, or heck, even Milo? It felt weird to end up using the word "friends" in your thoughts. But maybe it was time to face it; she either wanted to be friends or was friends with some of the people at school or met on the island. Was that really it? Aileen had given up on friendship a long time ago. Or at least, so she thought.

To make matters more confusing, Aaron had thanked them for being there. He was thanking them. It also felt odd to be thanked, to be honest.

It was time to go.

And Aileen nodded.

Despite all the horrible shit that had happened so far, she still felt like maybe she did have friends. Maybe it was precisely because of all the horrible shit. Perhaps she was deluding herself, though. She didn't want to be deluded.

Besides, there was still things worth fighting against, right? Even after her moment of despair earlier, even after having all her wishes dashed, she had to admit. There was still a grain of hope.

One more thing that felt weird. Aileen was being the optimistic one.

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:

- Chat
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
- Anything else I missed

I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.

This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.


Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.
