    ((Summer's always the worst for timing! Two people at work quit the past two days, so I've got even more hours x-x Are you liking the new place you're at?))

    "Tuesday..." Abel trailed off, trying to remember what he had on Tuesday. It would probably be a normal day. "I don't get out of practice until seven, is that alright?" Tuesdays were a good day, seeing as practice was from five to seven, rather than four to seven, and he always grabbed dinner before hand. "And I'll do my best to have all my lines done by then," he promised. "Costumes are fine too, I'd just want to see them before I have to wear them in front of the whole class, y'know?"

    (Oh gosh, that's horrible. But yeah, I actually like it here better than where I moved from -which is sad, I think, because I've lived there for about... 15-16 years, since my parents moved a lot when I was a baby.)

    "You really don't need them all memorized until Thursday, but Tuesday's good too if you can manage it." Pandora was actually taken aback by how he was acting with this project, like he actually cared and really wanted to do his part. "But yeah, that's fine, as far as time goes." She bit her lip, obviously thinking about something. "You could come to my house if you want," she finally just said. "That way, you'd get to make your costume, rather than just seeing what I come up with."

    (Ugh I had 6:30 AM shifts all last weekkkk. But I'm off almost every day this week? I'm happy you like the new place :D))

    "I mean, if you want me to," Abel said. "And I don't have that much to memorize, right? It won't be that difficult." He was actually moderately interested in the project, though the game would be his top priority. He just felt the need to break the lazy, stupid jock stereotype, at least when it came to Pandora and this project. It was a team effort, really, and he wouldn't do anything to let down his team, or his partner.

    "Just curious, what did you have in mind as far as costuming?" he asked. "And if there's anything I can pick up, I'd be happy to."

    @ catharsis.
    I personally wanted to send a message to everyone I roleplay with, especially to apologize for my absence. I managed to get bronchitis again, and while at first it was just the meds messing with me, now I just feel exhausted from all the coughing, plus the fact that I've inherited athsma from my mom and bronchitis makes it to where I don't breathe well. It usually only lasts about a week, but this one is really kicking me. Anyway, I'm so sorry for my sudden disappearance.
    Aside from that, I wanted to say that I'm going to take a break in roleplaying for a little bit. Almost everyone knows I've recently made a move, and I'm starting a new school during my senior year in a couple of weeks. Right now, I'm sick, but then I'll be all over the place getting ready for school and carting my sister to band practice and such, then I'll have my hands full once school starts since the classes I'm taking will be almost all advanced and I have a full schedule worked out. But until I find a groove where I can comfortably work out time to roleplay without it cutting into life, I'll be on break.
    I really hope you can understand, and I'm sorry about the abruptness of this. Thank you so much for understanding!

    (Thanks so much for your understanding!! Arms I probably won't be anything near as active as I used to be... but I'll be able to post at least once a week, and I should have weekend time now too... maybe a little while I work in the library. I took on too much at once with my schedule, so it's taken me a little longer than I expected to adjust XD)

    Pandora's shrug was that of a person who really didn't care. In some aspects, she knew that she could be intense and highly... well, spirited. She was strict on a lot of things as far as academics went (she was really probably one of the few in the whole school, sadly), but then on other things she was fairly laid back. As long as things got done the way they were supposed to, on time and orderly, she didn't really mind the 'how' of why the results came to be. She was the sort of person who would fix all the pictures hanging in one hotel room, so that the few crooked ones would match the straight ones, but in a different room with the same paintings, where they were all in disarray, she wouldn't blink twice to leave it be.

    "Hmm, I really don't know if or what we would even need as far as picking something up from a store," she admitted to him. Her streak of pointed indifference and keeping everything to short, efficient sentences seemed to have calmed a little, and she was acting more like her usual self. "As for costumes, it would be... well, haven't you ever watched something that even reminded you of Shakespeare?" She looked directly at him, rather than frowning to herself, as if she were just remembering he was actually there. "For all I know, you might end up in tights." She grinned. "The female population of our class would absolutely love it, I'm sure." She once more shrugged in indifference, the grin gone as quickly as it had appeared. "I would obviously be in a dress. I don't think shoes matter. And if you want, I could probably make an aluminum sword or something."

    @ manic;
    (No worries! I understand where you're at haha. I move to school in less than a week and I'm currently laid up after having my wisdom teeth out.)

    "Tights?" Abel asked. "I mean, how authentic are we going here?" He definitely wanted to do well on this project, maybe get some extra credit, but not give anyone anything they could hold over him. "I mean, I don't think anyone else is going to go that far."

    It wasn't that Abel worried about being bullied -- who would bully a soccer star? But he knew how hard it could be. His older brother -- a total dweeb, not athletic -- had been bullied relentlessly through high school, and Abel had vowed to not let that happen to him, too. He was thankful that he had an easier time making friends, that kept him high enough on the social ladder that nobody could touch him.

    (Facepalm I'm a failure... Anyway, I feel you about the wisdom teeth- that sucks. I had mine out the summer before I started high school)

    Pandora laughed at the worried tone that colored his voice, and sent him a mischievous grin. "What, you worried Soccer Star?" she asked, leaning back as she crossed her arms in front of her chest, the ghost of the grin remaining painted on her lips. Soon though, it faded entirely and her expression became more somber. "Don't worry, I won't make you wear tights if you don't wanna. I think if there's any guy in our class than can pull it off without being teased mercilessly though, it's you. But I'm telling you its a good idea. I do good in English because i'm a reader and I understand the material, but also because I take projects seriously even if I don't like them. Half-assing a project, or just doing the bare minimum will give you a good grade, but you won't ever know the best grade you can get if you don't work for it." She ran a hand through her multi-colored hair. "Anyway, just think about it..." she glanced out a window and sighed. "It's gonna get dark soon. I should probably head off." She hadn't been able to find a ride, so she had to walk, hence the reason why she needed to go ahead and leave.
