FrankenSoul here. Or as you might know me, InuMeister.
It's hard to believe that it's already been a few years since the closing of the group. So much has happened since then, and yet it seems like nothing at all.
Firstly, I'd like to apologize. For any past mistakes I've made, for closing the group without much warning, and for leaving it here for so long. I'd like to offer a half-explanation that you all deserved long ago. Due to trouble that arose within the group, bitter feelings that were spread around, and inexperience in doing such a thing, I was unable to further cope with ID. It was a burden that dug at me each time I dealt with it, growing heavier and worse. I had hurt some people who were my closest friends at this time, and to this day I regret it very much and know I can only try to learn from it.
Casting away ID during the lowest time of activity, I felt that many others shared these same feelings. That the magic of rping within ID was lost and that they too simply wished it gone.
So I left it alone for a long time, content with trying to bury and erase emotions that had become attached to it and outright ignoring it. I was afraid to think about it, afraid to dig up the rawness in both myself and others.
Not long ago, I found that some still wished for ID to live. That they felt somewhat cheated and confused. It had not occurred to me that anyone might still care for this place and the community. So slowly, I began to work on it again.
I will stress slowly. I meant to be finished with ID again by the beginning of summer. However, obstacles have moved in my way. I will not give too many details, but will say that I have struggled with mild cases of depression. Struggling with these issues, I also have attempted to fix and finish a side rp group that a friend and I worked on together.
And so summer too has slipped away before I could finish what I wanted to do. I only now find that I can type this journal to try and speak for myself. I will be honest with you all, and you all deserve it.
I will try to bring back ID. I will try my hardest to do so, as I have been doing. This may however be slow as I have many fresh ideas to place in and now must juggle college and real world problems.
I hope soon to open the group on a limited scale, at the very least after finishing a certain amount of information, so that people might place in characters and rp while I keep developing.
When it is finished and done, I'm not sure if I myself will stay as the leader of the group itself. I still hold some hurt emotions and guilt towards this group and I'm also not sure if I'm stable emotionally enough to do so. This is yet to be seen. In the meanwhile, I will do my very best to keep submitting journals to stay in contact and let you know what's going on with big developments and updating a list on the front page to let you know about the smaller things. Hopefully, soon ID might have a second chance. I'm so sorry it took so long.
