Daniel nodded. "The time to act is now, I suppose! They've got more than a hundred kids to keep track of at the moment, so if we're gonna slip through the cracks at all the time would be now." Oh. Wait. Crap. If the terrorists hadn't been on to them yet, his little piece of planning right there had probably managed to attract their attention. Smooth, Daniel. Smooth. You are truly the most suave of all escape artists, the spiritual reincarnation of Houdini.

Glancing nervously at the camera, Daniel turned his attention back to Alex. "Er. Hypothetically speaking, of course. No way we'd actually do anything. Ha. Hahahah." He slumped.

Whose idea was it to put me in a position to do stuff that actually mattered, again?

Still, he had to keep hoping. Daniel and Alex would find their friends, everything would work out in the end, no one had to die. While Daniel didn't know every single one of his classmates well, he believed that fundamentally, they were all good people. They'd prove the terrorists wrong. They had to.

With a new hope, however slight, in his heart, Daniel smiled. "The people we care about are out there somewhere, and we aren't gonna find them if we stay in this admittedly pretty awesome lighthouse. Let's go, Alex." Turning towards the exit, Daniel walked out into the world.

The cameras were, of course, an impediment. It meant that anything they said or did so far the terrorists would know about. So that did mean that they did know that they were up to something. That only meant that they had to be extra careful when they found something out, as noted before. It was going to be something difficult, to make sure that the terrorists didn't spot them doing something unusual.

But she couldn't help but giggle a bit at what Daniel said. Really, the terrorists knew they were up to something most likely, but honestly, she had to.

It wasn't worth sticking around. Alex agreed on this. There was plenty of tracks they had to cover, and they needed an idea of what everything looked like.

In a perfect world, they would be rescued within minutes. However, the world wasn't perfect. That didn't mean that most of their classmates deserved to die, didn't they? A few were bad seeds, but there were plenty of good seeds as well.

Alex nodded, and, placing her fan back and grabbing her bag, she followed Daniel out.

Only to pause at the mallet near the door.

Gwen had left it there. Maybe she didn't realize it, but it was still here. Alex couldn't help but bend down and grab it.

Some part of her felt that it was off to take something that was Gwen's, but she knew it could be useful somehow. Somehow.

As they reached outside, the breeze gently brushed against her.

It had just occurred to her the reason why she was not panicking as much was because she was sure that there was an escape. And honestly, that was good.

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.
