Huh, what? The GT is still hanging around waiting for a blog update? Oh. ...NaNoWriMo ate my soul. Sorry 'bout that. I think we might have had some stuff happening. There's some kind of bug problem in the Tower, and I think one of the Ji just earned her fancloak. Oh, and there are a couple of elections going on.
Right, okay, okay. Proper update.
Congratulations to Corsedai on earning her fancloak! That's really all there is to say on the matter, though I expect a lot more cheering and applauding are going on off-screen.
NaNoWriMo ate my soul, but it obviously got a bigger bite of Elyscia and Icerril, who have already hit the 50,000 word goal. Congratulations! Everyone else, come on, we can do it! We're all awesome. Except possibly Crys, who was busy raising Corsedai and hasn't started her novel. :P (You know I <3 you, and congrats again on hitting Gaidar.)
Elections! If you're Midrank or above, please! Hie thee to the HoS and vote for the next Master of Soldiers! Nominations for the Amyrlin Seat have closed, and we expect voting to open very soon, so watch for that.
Infestation! Keep going on section 2 of the Infestation RP for a while. I'll organize section 3 in...a few days, probably. Soon. I'll make a nuisance of myself on the MMB again when it's ready.
I think that's it. I still have some blood in my caffeine system, so I'm going to drink some diet cola and get back to work on my novel.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
Congratulations to Dedicated Jasrin on making it through the three arches, and even bigger congratulations to Vibyka Gaidar for passing her survival test and gaining the fancloak! Well done, both of you.
Entrants in the vocabulary contest this round--and all winners of the Keeper's Choice Pin--are: Illyria, Latonia, Saffiah, and Vibyka. And for a particularly outstanding fanfic that made use of both Poe's work and the word macabre, Jasrin wins the Keeper's Choice Ribbon. Honorable mention and a pin go to Anahi for creativity born of obstinacy.
NaNoWriMo kicks off at midnight tonight in your time zone. (Yes, your time zone, no matter which it is!) I know lots of us GT types plan to participate, and we'd love to have more of our friends try it, too.
Last but certainly not least, we have a Big RP opening today! I encourage you to sign up even if you're beset with school, work, and NaNo noveling because it's not one to be missed (even if I do say so myself). Not your run-of-the-mill holiday or fancy-dress ball, this; the Tower is under attack! Sign up on the MMB and keep an eye out for updates on when and where to see the story unfold. There will be prizes afterward!
