I'll be deleting this community as of tomorrow, Tuesday. If you want it, the time to speak up would be today.

ETA: Change that to I will no longer be posting any drawble or word challenges or adding stars or putting any of the posts in the memories.

I realize that there is very little to do in the comm for the past few months, and this may seem pointless and selfish of me, but I am going through a serious case of RL crap at the moment. Add other fandom obligations to the mix and that leaves me with no time or desire to maintain a half-dead community. I didn't want to just stop posting challenges without an explanation or offer for someone else to take over.

Perhaps, simply stepping away quietly would have been a better idea.

The fact that people would have lost their drabbles/art didn't occur to me when I thought of deleting. I apologize.

Dear toilntrouble members,

I no longer have the time or the desire to run this community. The other mods have many obligations and are not available to take over the community. So, if anyone would like to take the controls, feel free to comment to this post and let me know and I'll make you a maintainer. I will not be staying on as a mod or a member. Kerry is also backing down from the mod position... not exactly sure if hezzy_4 will want to stay on to help, you'd have to contact her.

I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to all the fantastic artists and writers who helped to make this community a lot of fun.

*special thanks to myrafur for drawbling time after time (even when you really didn't want to). I truly appreciate it.

Hello all! The comm has been mighty quiet lately. I know...holidays. I've been mad busy myself, hence the lack of challenges posted.

Our Drawble Wench is up to her lovely lady lumps in other responsibilities, so I am looking for artists (or close facsimile) to draw the next (and future) challenges.

Come now, don't be shy. We don't need the Mona Lisa, just a simple 300 X 300 gen drawing (not character specific) to inspire the drabblers.

Anyone who would like to take this challenge, please comment here and let me know. We can then communicate via IM or email. I'll take as many people who want to apply. I will use the (tons of) drawings that I'm certain to receive ;) in order of arrival. ie: the first one will be challenge #15 and so on...


Much love and appreciation for her furtabulous contributions goes out teh myrafur (who of course is MOST welcome to submit more drawbles whenever her schedule allows)

i have a plot bunny but don't feel i'm at all up to doing it justice.
probably is more than a drabble, anyway.

i was thinking it would be really fun for "wizard's truth or dare" to be facilitated by another .. something. like the sorting hat, something that knew each players comfort level and what kinds of questions to ask everyone so that the game would be fun, but not mortifying. somehow it'd be needed to set levels for the game. a lower level if you're 11, but much more interesting when you're 18.
