This is to inform you, our friends, that Sigs is in a very bad way. She did not quite recover from her depression of earlier this year, and a wide variety of factors have converged to drive her back into it: a combination of world events, a continuing disappointment in her Christian brethren for their love of unbelievers' "wisdom", pregnancy hormones, a cancer scare, and something of a crisis of perspective.
She has decided to focus her attention, for the time being, on our home and growing family, and I am not about to forbid her; she is no fool, so I will not be one, either. Therefore, I will wrap up this roleplay arc.
At that point, we are debating whether to continue in the path this story has established, take it somewhere new, or simply reboot the roleplay to the meeting of these two characters and play it all anew. The first option may be a bit dull, uneventful; the second would require a sequence of events that may seem contrived; the last, while I am not entirely pleased with the evolution of Loki in this iteration, I fear may sow confusion.
As we debate this--and we do welcome input from the people who must endure it, meaning you the readers--Sigs wants to go back to her homemaking posts, as it is "Fall Cleaning" (women and their rituals...). I myself may soon, I hope, deliver the treatise I have been writing on the question of whether Christian men ought to look to heathen whoremongers for marriage advice, and how we ought to comport ourselves. Even if nobody reads it, even if nobody accepts it, it is a burden on my soul that I must discharge.
