Where Anyone is Possible
I've come back today to issue a full apology to everyone that participated or witnessed my dreadful story line that I attempted to DM.
Looking back, I can see that DMing such a thing was way out of my league, but i cannot take full blame for everything. Some of the people that were Co-writers sometimes did things without my knowledge and otherwise altered the story line, to which was not always to my liking.
But as the Main DM it is no excuse to say they are the reason it went so bad.
I remember a lot of people complaining about the lack communication, and now that I've taken my time to take a step back, I can fully see the error of my ways. I can see that being a DM is not what I'm entirely good at. I can see that I've angered and annoyed a lot of people with my story.
I guess I just want to say I'm sorry to everyone it affected.
I'm not going to expect everything to be fine and dandy after this apology is issued, but I think of it as "I tried to patch things up"
You may take it how you'd like :)
I will be on Curie a lot more now, and hope to Rp again soon.
Thank you for reading
I agree with Birdie, you should be able to write whatever you want about whatever you want, without anyone's approval! Fuck whoever didn't like the rp, they didn't have to participate if they didn't like it.

I'm sorry, but I think this apology is bullshit. They never should have been mean to you for writing what you wanted to write.
It must have been difficult for you to write this...it is never easy to take the blame for something.
However, in this case, you didn't have to. No DMed plot runs without glitches, and you can't please everyone. You ran a very good and very enjoyable plot while you had it, and you have absolutely nothing to be sorry for. This is about fun, and anyone who was genuinely upset with your story should take the time to realize that.
You have nothing to apologize for, Curie. I hope you write another plotline soon.
I could not agree more with what has already been said. I am sure it was difficult for you to write this but please know that it is absolutely impossible to make everyone happy. You should be allowed to write what you want and not have to worry about what others think. You have nothing to be sorry for and I truly hope this experience has not completely discouraged you from DMing again in the future!
DMing is a tough job but you should never let people discourage you from doing it. I personally believe that you did a damn good job for your first shot at it. I feel that you have nothing to be sorry for. I believe that no one is going to be cruel to you or shun you as start RPing again, things got confusing for some people and others were cruel to you.
So don't feel down and welcome back!
I would like to thank you all for those who've reached out to me. Yes, writing this was not easy but I was afraid I would be shun. People were upset, and so on.. So I am glad you've all help me see the light. To not be afraid to get up and try again. I would like to thank you for welcoming me back to Rolepages, one of my favorite places to write. :) thank you all.
I know we don't write together. But I loved seeing your story develop. And I am so sorry that a couple of people had to ruin it for you by being nasty. It's not fair to you at all. You did a great job DMing, and even if those people had a problem with your story, it doesn't make them right. No one has to join in any story they don't want to. You deserve better than that.
Hope to see more from you in the future.
