okay, so i'm leaving the country tonight and... well, i originally thought i'd have decent internet access while i was overseas, but now i'm not so sure. as in- i know i'll have internet while i'm over there, i just don't know how often i'll be able to log on. i thought i'd be fine before but - yeah, i'm just having doubts about that now. so this is kinda more of a... just-in-case hiatus.
i'm really sorry i haven't been around as much as i would've liked, so i'll try to fix that after vacation times are over and done with =w=
until then - HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE.
What up Academians? Been a while hasn't it? This is your Ex-Head Mod, Naima here with an announcement. All through November and December we will be holding a reunion of sorts. Think of it like a family reunion... except with out all the weird aunt awkward hugs. And that creepy uncle no one likes.
A little confused? Let me explain a bit further:
- I, Naima, will be trying to set up D_A chat again, at least during the weekends, or-- just when anyone wants to come in and chat!
- I'll be posting up mini- fun little memes/event type things(Though I guess this would be considered more museboxing) for all of our muses to meet up and chat. So things like winter balls, morning after memes, etc etc. Take in note, this won't be exclusive to D_A muses considering I think many of us don't know if we can dust off our old D_A accounts, but for any and all muses, get reacquainted with everyone through RP
- I'll also try to host a couple of OOC memes for us to just get to say hi to each other again.
This is all super informal, of course with the game being closed and all, and everyone is invited! D_A vets and their friends, anyone and everyone who wants to try and contribute to the good old cracky, happy D_A environment is welcome to come and attend. Keep an eye out on this community for more info, or better yet pop into chat and take a look.
I'll try to have a more formal list of events by the end of this week-- let's say Saturday November 5th @ 7pm.
Right now, we'll get started off with our first event:

Naima obviously lost all her creativity after not being a mod
I thought about posting this as my mod account, but I arrived at this place as Scar, and that's the way I want to leave it. Not as someone who helped run the game
when I could be bothered and when I wasn't dicking around abroad
, but as someone who has truly appreciated everything
I have gained and experienced here.
Disney Academy was exactly what I needed exactly when I needed it. The summer we started this game was one of the roughest periods in my life, when I was convinced I had no one and nothing to look forward to except a huge, blank expanse of time. I was so nervous when I applied because I had never played in a multifandom game before, let alone one that promised to be quite this size, but I knew I would love it when I requested Scar in a tie for my fanart prize for being the second male character applicant. Dee said "nothing is too cracky for D_A," and I knew this would be a wonderful place.
Since then I've watched this community grow into more of a family than a community, and I say that because I truly feel I could have said anything about myself or my opinions in chat and they would have been welcomed with open arms (if not always complete seriousness, because let's be real, it's D_A chat). I was floored over and over again by how accepting and friendly everyone was, which confused me a great deal because I had heard people on my friends list complain about how dramatic their LJRPGs could be and we just... didn't have that. I really feel like the D_A honeymoon period never really ended until just now, when we decided to close. To me, we were as fun a month ago as we were a year ago, and though my motivation came and went, though we had mods come and go, and though we gained and lost some excellent players and characters, I felt and still do feel that Disney Academy, as an entity, was something really great and something truly special.
I can't thank you all enough for helping make this community a safe haven when I needed it, a laugh fest when I needed it, a sounding board when I needed it, and a home when I needed it. I will truly miss this game, and I'm sorry to see it draw to a close, but it's time. Better to do it now than deliver an ending that simply wouldn't impress, I think. This way the focus is on the great relationships we've built, in-character but especially out of character, rather than a plot that fizzled at the last moment.
I love you all. I can't say it enough. I love you, I love you, I love you. I'll always be your killjoy, and thank you for everything you've done to make this community so special to me. I'll never forget my time here. I want to keep in touch with as many of you as I possibly can, so my thread in the friending meme is here
for any and all who are interested.
Until we next meet, D_Aers. I'll never forget you.
Sincerely, your mod, your badguy extraordinaire, and your friend,
Alright, considering the imminent closure of D_A I figured it would be best to hold one of these so that the few people left who want to keep in contact with one another can!
And yes, Ex-D_A memembers, I'd like you all to post as well! We know some of you had plans to re-app, or even that you wanted to keep in contact but just never thought to ask. JUST TAKE THE TIME TO FILL OUT THE FORM GUYS!

Just a heads up to everyone that Saturday I'll be heading out for NYC
to party for this shitty test for school and stuff. I'll try to catch up between today and tomorrow but won't be starting any new threads/posts due to my leaving. I'll be back probably around Wednesday-Thursday and might get a couple tags in via phone here and there.
But probably not :|
Stay awesome, I'll be back before you know it :3

I feel like a jerk doing this, but my internet has been giving me serious trouble lately-- to the point that it turns off for hours at a time and only turns back on for a half-hour at best. This is making it difficult to keep up with everything and I'm sad to have to say good-bye to this place. ): I wanted to try and stick it out, but I feel like I'm just taking up space right now.
I'm so sorry! You guys are amazing and you made me feel very welcome! I hope I can come back here in the future when things clear up. Maybe with someone less antagonistic. XD;
Anyway, thank you for all the lulz and good times-- even though I wasn't here very long... /sob
When I brought Angela in, I mentioned that I'll soon be setting off on a three week road trip. (Along the west coast of the US, whoo!)
By soon, I mean tomorrow.
As I'll have internet access while I'm away, I certainly hope that I'll be around, but I'll definitely be slow until I arrive back in the UK on the 12th of August. In the mean time, my characters - Aladdin, Angela, Elisa Maza and Miss Bianca - will be on autopilot. If you need them (or me!) for anything in particular, feel free to drop me a PM or an email! I'll be checking my inbox frequently as my schedule allows.
I'll bring a Disneyland picspam with me when I return!
I've been thinking about it for a while and holding off because I've had a lot of fun here. In the end, though, I have decided to drop both Alana and the Weird Sisters.
Alana: Experimented with voodoo transformation magic by the ocean and turned back into a mermaid. Although she managed to cancel out Ursula's magic, the price of turning back into a human again would have been pretty steep. Alana wrote one letter exclusively for her sisters and a separate letter for her friends. The letter to her sisters was detailed, the letter to her friends was a little more vague.
Weird Sisters: Oberon had business he wanted them to personally take care of. They left a few cryptic notes for staff and students they had shown a particular interest in. Puck gets a note in Gaelic with the words "Oberon is watching" just for one final bit of trolling.
It's been a blast, and thanks for the fond memories.
You know what's really stupid? Bringing in a new character right before heading off on a road trip across America.
You know who's really stupid? Yes, that would be me.
I blame Gato and Rose Marie for this. Angela - from Gargoyles, if the wings didn't give that away - was the first character I debated bringing to the Academy and has somehow ended up being my fourth.
She's incredibly sweet, a little naive and currently has a lot of blanks in her memory that need to be filled in. Please make her feel welcome and contact me if you can think of any plot you'd like to try.
(And, as usual, the same applies to Elisa, Aladdin and Bianca. I love plot!)
