Okay, I'm going to preface this by saying... I love The Tipsy Hourglass. They're family. (Quite literally, since Lestuu & Daeo are ICly married, and OOCly, well that's their business!) Anywho... it seems that the Hourglass is planning to host an Open RP "bachelor's auction" event in early February for the coming season of LOVE.
I'm not going to lie, I chuckled pretty hard at this at first. It had "holy fuck, check Zae for Moriay's brain slugs NOW!!!" written all over it.
But respectfully and with an open mind, I read the entire post and I happen to think that this date auction serves an appropriate purpose (the Love is in the Air holiday) and even has a nice, heartwarming little IC reason behind it! This event sounds like it's 100% more composed and organized than the, uh... other bachelor auctions we've attended in the past.
Plus, they're family, and we rarely spend much time with them these days. (This is mostly due to conflicting schedules in-game, however, so it's through no fault of either party!)
So, yeah! I'll put it on the calendar when I'm next in-game, just to provide some options as per usual. Again, the usual disclaimer: Just because it's on the calendar, doesn't make it mandatory. Together we can make WrA a better and more open community again!
