Well that short hiatus became a rather long hiatus...
Aside from that, in the throes of finals, I have returned this winter to write once more... so...
Hi y'all! I'm back!
Can't wait to meet up with everyone again and do some hardcore, collaborative writing 😎.
Let's get on to the spicy adventures, shall we?

Hello everyone, vielle here (again)! 🙏
So: I'm a prodigal daughter on her way back home. I just wanted to apologize to everyone for ghosting all those months ago—it's as @Csl has said: I've taken a leave of absence because I had to focus on stuff irl and also my mental health. Things haven't been the best in that latter aspect, but methinks I'm doing better nowadays. It's kinda tough, having to learn some things the hard way, but that's life for you! Now, I've kinda gotten better at handling my stressors now. 😂
Which leads me to that elephant in the room: I'm dropping out of past threads, cutting down on new threads, and focusing more on personal plots this time around. Taking up all those past threads and keeping up with them was in fact doable, truly, but I unfortunately overestimated my capacity to stay interested in all the things. It's not that those plots weren't interesting; don't get me wrong! It's just that there's only so much my writing muse can do for me, and though some once thought it of me, I'm not a machine. 😅 So, as I make my slow return, I'll be more particular about the future plots and threads I'll be engaging in, so I can give them my utmost writing efforts to the best of my ability. It's the least I can do for my writing partners; you all deserve the best I can give. ❤️
By the way, I have not checked Discord yet and probably will continue not checking Discord for the foreseeable future. I'm sorry if anyone sent me any messages over there; I haven't opened it at all over these past few months! 😂 But please know, whatever you may have sent me, I appreciate that you have thought to interact with me at all, even when I was, y'know, away. 🙈
Overly sentimental stuff aside: I'm (omw) back! I've missed you all dearly. If you would have me back in your good graces, I'd be happy to write with you all again. Gonna do some spring cleaning on my thread tracker (it's a little dusty in there!) and take over handling that character/lore garage sale @Csl was doing for me (thank you so much, bestie!), and then maybe I'll have a cup of tea and look around what's changed here in my absence some more.
It's kinda great to be back here. ❤️

Codenamed in development with the names of three of the Major Arcana of esoteric tarot, the second weapon being developed was:
The Hierophant: A polearm-style weapon, built for use by OFM Custodes of the Greatsword aspect. With one end terminating in a deadly axe head, and the other with a counter-weight shaped for use against armor, the Hierophant is a deadly, heavy weapon intended for use only by the strongest of individuals of enhanced strength, or wearing strength-enhancing wargear such as power armor. The Hierophant incorporates a built-in energy system that allows it to fire blasts of power through a port typically placed forward near the weapon head. This energy system typically takes the form of a generator that is configured either to fire blasts of electricity, or blasts of fire, and can be charged for a more powerful projectile. An alternate mode for each enhances the bladed edge with either an electrical charge, or superheated blade. The Hierophant may also take the form of a large two-handed sword or lance, and extremely rarely, as a war hammer.
Through the trials of events such as the Harrowing and battles against Fuererkonig's elite guard, the Kreigmeisters, revealed the need for more potent weaponry, with regular melee arms all but impotent and the vibroblade arsenal faring as ordinary against the enchanted steelskin of their enemies, it is hoped that the Hierophant line will allow a Custode to tackle and harm the toughest enemies.

Sorry I've been M.I.A. everyone. Massive anxiety attack that's lasted daaaays. I've been to therapy so I'm on the mend, but my creative mind has decided to be a Judas and go on an unapproved hiatus. I should be back to writing next weekend though.

*buzzes around gathering old projects.* I am going to try and be productive on here today. I did profound work on my word documents but I need to show some more love here.
I hope everyone’s well, my fellow depressed friends the sun is coming soon. We must remain strong. Those with other problems that have clearly pushed your mental or physical capacity to human normally the sun will come.. I love you all.

Lore Snippet: On the subject of killing daemons
The assorted students in the class before him were from multiple branches of the Force Majeure, both Auxiliary and Militant, Vanquishers and Guardians, captains and freshly graduated troopers alike. James set down a tome on the subject on the table before him. He had gone over with them the whos and whats of the subject. Now it was time to get to the most relevant aspect of them.
How to kill them.
James placed two more items on the table. The first of which was a revolver-style pistol, built by a company in contract to the Order of Force Majeure. The weapon was large and weighty, a favored backup weapon for many Custodes and packed by a few Knights as well for its reliability and stopping power even against larger creatures. The second was a gladius, often used as a sidearm by Guardians and Greatswords for close-in work. The weapon had a stark, naked honesty to it, deadly in its simplicity, well-shaped for both slashing and thrusting.
"Now, it is well documented that more advanced weapons such as firearms are less effective against daemons then blade and flame. Can anyone explain why it is?" James asked his audience, pointing to each respective weapon.
Silence. An uncomfortable silence. To think that higher tech actually became less useful when confronting the terrors of the void made such technological advancement seem pointless.
"Because they are not of this world, sir?" ventured one Custode.
James nodded, "Partial credit for a partial answer. That is but one aspect of it. The truth is not fully understood, and may be stranger than any of us know, but the current working belief is that of the primordial origin of daemons lends their vulnerability to the things that first spawned them" He would proceed to expand upon the subject at length.
"After all, what is a daemon other than a shadow made manifest? They are stories made flesh... our stories, the stories of our ancestors and descendants. It is up to you to interpret that story, and make what you will of it. You must be able to think beyond the story, and recognize that to be corrupted is to be bound by a parasite, devoid of any true sentience, and become nothing more than a hollow puppet."
He held up the gladius, displaying it for all to see. "Thus, daemons are injured not on the physical plane, but on an ideological one. This here is a symbol, a constant throughout cultures past, present and future, familiar, or alien. The warp is a place where our reality echoes... where notable events, themes and deeds churn the primordial psyche of mortal species. The most primeval of actions, of objects, they have the most power as they are closer and more charged with the raw emotions to which the daemon is but a mirror of."
He laid the gladius down, and gestured the pistol next. "Of course, the power of firearms cannot be denied. Perhaps in time they will be more effective as our most base instincts reflect such. But the origin still remains, and will always remain. Now... who can tell me how does this correlate to the concept of True Names?"
One of the Vanquishers answered this time, loud and clearly. "Daemons have True Names, exactly because they are not of this realm, my lord. As the reflections of consciousness, they have no form, and therefore, no identity in the sense that we know."
The Master Knight smiled and nodded in response. At least one of the assembly was doing their scholarly work.

I know, I know. I say I'm going to come back and then completely drop off the face of the earth and for that I am mucho sorries.
Things kind of got a little hectic for me and my attention was drawn to other things. I applied for about 1000 jobs and out of those I got 999 interviews, where one job forgot about the interview and tried to push it two days later, wasting my time completely. The rest went well, I interviewed and dazzled them with my brilliance. One job hired me on the spot and the rest I was waiting for my background check to clear and see what they have to say. All in all, I was stupid busy with job hunting and I started orientation this week and worked my first shift yesterday.
On top of that amazingness that's all titties, school started for me. I have two classes this round -sob- that request I write about 4 essays each for the next six weeks. I don't know why, I guess it's because the college supplies the Professors pay with students tears and frustration, I dunno. My hard work has paid off there though, my graduation date changed from February to TADA! DECEMBER of this year. Cue panic/excited/exhausted/omg mode.
I have a job now, but that won't change my soon-to-be activity here on Valucre. I only work 15 hours a week and they're morning shifts to boot, plus Avalynn has been in daycare for about three weeks now and that has freed up my Monday thru Friday from 630am-5pm. I get my schoolwork done ASAPRocky and have some hefty free time on my hands. THAT SAID, I won't be reappearing until late next week. I am getting acclimated to my upcoming work schedule and working out how it'll jive with my schooling.
I miss you nerds tho, so have this heart <3 to hold you over until I get back.
