I don't want to sound like a whiny bitch, but... is everyone ignoring my posts on purpose? I talked to Hay, no response. I tried to help Keel, no mention of it. I shouted something to Heliotrope, he doesn't say anything back. It's as if Kean is air. I don't want a fullfledged dialogue or a reply of twenty lines of text, but just some sort of reaction to something Kean did would be great, so that I know if the others are even noticing him.

Also, you need to take into account the situation the characters are in. High stress and very little time. It may be out of place for someone to be saying so much, let alone expect a complete answer.
As I said, I don't want a full answer or anything. All I want is a reaction or at least a mention so that I know the people have noticed my post. You could even say something like "Ignoring Kean, Keel went to..." but just leaving me hanging there is just... Unprofessional. >_>

I mean, I don't even know if Heliotrope or Keel even heard Kean. Same goes for Hay. That kinda annoys me.

Well, it is Lush.  She sort of just does her own thing half the time.  She's getting better though.

Then you shouldn't have asked. ._.

I don't think I did:

Also, you need to take into account the situation the characters are in. High stress and very little time. It may be out of place for someone to be saying so much, let alone expect a complete answer.

Pat also explained what I had in mind. We can assume that a character acknowledged what one said. But when there is so much action, it's pointless to nudge characters along (even slightly, as you are suggesting I do) until something more important forces them to take actions that actually need narration. Otherwise it's just a boring storyline. The continuity starts to drag out trying to give a response and it makes the opponent seem like they are on a time-out.

Now in the case of Keel, he didn't just get off the floor and throw a chair in reaction to Heliotrope. Keel heard Kean and got up. As he was taking cover, he reacted to Heliotrope's actions. In these two instances, I chose to omit the former for the sake of condensing narrative and making it more interesting by assuming Keel heard Kean.

I do this because I don't like narrating a half-stride action unless the majority of the story reaches a discernible checkpoint that I can reach so I can make that mini-arc interesting and worthwhile.

Blegh, I had completely forgotten about the RP board, but I'm back with attack and a rocket-man pack.

As I understand it, the delegations were cut short when a group of ruffians burst through the door, and we beat a hasty retreat out the back door. Correct?

Pretty much. Oh and some killing was involved. Never mess with a room full of armed Celtic Viking Faeries and expect to come out unscathed.

Lush, you have a general sense of Darth's plot, right?

Do you think you can direct the action a bit in her absence?

Yeah, I think we're splitting up though. Half escorting the diplomats and half fighting the invaders. Who's going to go where?

Hrm... we need more direction. I'm not sure what to post about and I can't ad-lib anything from the attackers' point of view because I don't know what they want.

I'm little stunted on which way to go (which is why I haven't posted), mainly because I have been trying to see if maybe this is the arc where I reveal R5's true nature, preferably to a select few, one maybe

I also need to edit his bio, as he's way different then I originally made him, at least personality wise.

Ay... I'm rusty at this.

And I just now realized Inya had pretty much fallen off the face of the Earth. *facepalm*
