I want to talk to you all about trust. Trust, and community. It's amazing the community you've formed here, how strong it is, how connected you all are, and how honest you are with each other. You trust others and hope to receive that trust yourselves. I can see this constantly in the ways you all talk to each other and how comfortable you all seem with each other. But because of how powerful that trust is, it hurts all the more when it's broken. It can feel like the entire community is breaking.
I want you all to know that I get that. And that you're seen and heard by us. We've read all your responses, including the ones that got caught in our autofilter.
I understand that this is an upsetting and complicated thing that's happened here. All your feelings about what's happened are valid. It's perfectly normal that you may have some very mixed emotions, maybe even ones that contradict.
Sadness, happiness, anger, relief, betrayal, forgiveness. Whatever you're feeling in whatever combination, you should know it's fine to feel that way.
If you want to take a break from the forum, take the time you need.
If you want to ask for support or hugs from your community, don't hesitate. In fact, here's a big hug from me to everyone.
Above all else, please be good to yourselves. This community is built by you all. It won't break.
On a more "forum rules" note, as always we will remove any posts or replies that break the rules aka are considered insulting, mean, inappropriate for the forum, etc. I don't want to see any posts arguing about what to believe or being insulting to those who choose to react in a way you don't agree with. You will have your own feelings and opinions about this that may differ from others, so please discuss respectfully if you decide you want to discuss at all.
To be clear, anger does not equal disrespect. You can say you're angry, upset, hurt. Just don't insult anyone for feeling differently.
I will throw one piece of advice out there: this just happened recently. It's still very tender. Take a break from the forum to think and breathe before any discussion.

Okay, fine I lied about Skylar‘s death, but I was told to, my parents told me to! I am not emotionally manipulating anyone, I am just doing what I am told to do!
Skylar’s alive, okay? She’s just in emotional therapy, okay?
Plus, she never said my hair was red, she never did, she showed a picture of me, my hair is blond, her hair is, like, reddish brownish!
I’m just doing what my parents told me to do until they get back and Skylar is back, okay? I lied because my parents don’t want Skylar on the website anymore, they think it’s making her scream at us, they think it’s making her more distant than she already was! She’s in America, okay? Talking to a therapist, I wanted to tell you, I really did! Well, she’s not really talking, she’s probably writing... she only talks when she swears at us and screams, which is as loud as talking for her.
I’ve been getting texts, tons and tons of texts... orders from either my parents or Skylar, some of the orders I don’t follow, like saying I’m going to leave or something, I follow everything Skylar says, she sent me Terrell’s form through email, she told me to make Topita, Victor, Rehi, and Toroko out of imagination, she wanted me to update some things, she even sent me letters of what she wanted!
She told me to act like her! Told me what to say when it came to roleplaying! To have an imagination!
I did the ships because she wanted me to! She had no idea she was apparently dead on the internet, okay?
I’m sorry, I’m really, really sorry. You probably think I’m a jerk.
My family has a knack for acting, my father has always lied to my mother, my mother has always lied to her boss, I’ve always lied.
We’re a selfish family, making you all upset by lying to you, but, I just want to tell you one thing, my parents only wanted their childhood daughter back, the one who always smiled, no matter what happened, the one who cracked a weird, annoying joke every once in a while, not the one who only smiled for her boyfriend and never told a joke to her family.
My name is Sofia, I am seventeen years old, I do create video games, they do have websites, but you need a special password to join, I’m Skylar’s sister. That’s the truth.
I lied, I’m sorry, but I should probably get my parents to apologize as well...
That’s going to be hard, since they will be gone for over a month... probably a year, now...
I really am sorry, but... okay I don’t have anymore excuses, go ahead, be angry, but I’m still going to do what they told me to, Skylar might be able to come on once she gets a visiting day from me next month.
Also, the reason I know her password is because she kept a paper with it for a long time, she probably shouldn’t have done that...
She might ask you what happened on that visiting day, if she can come, why everything of hers is messed up, explain it all, please...
I’m really sorry, my parents probably won’t apologize, so I’ll be sorry for them.
I’m super sorry that my family lied, I wish Skylar were here to see it all... but she’s still in America, precisely Wisconsin, should’ve mentioned that. I’m going to continue controlling the characters until next month, on visiting day, only day I can visit her, because my parents think it’s the best thing, visiting once every two months.
I hope you forgive me.
((Mods, please let this through.))
Let me tell you everything that was happening with Skylar to drive my parents to this. The start began when Colbi was on, by the way.
Skylar was never out of her room, she never stopped looking at her screen, the only time she looked away was to curse at us, either as loud as she possibly could or quietly.
Eventually, after about a month of eating the food we gave her in her room, she just stopped eating, she stopped talking entirely, she just kept looking at her computer screen. She was ignoring everything, whenever her boyfriend visited her, he could make her eat, but eventually he couldn’t make her smile.
This was getting to my parents, making them believe their daughter was breaking because of the internet, that she was killing herself slowly because of what people told her on there, eventually, I started investigating, and that’s when I saw all of that jerk (Cobli)’s posts, I thought it was destroying Skylar, so, of course, I told my parents, we confronted Skylar, she said to us as loud as she could that this was none of our business, that people on the internet made her feel better.
In the end, she began to eat more, but she still ignored us, I began to think this had something to do with us, her family, only able to visit her once a day because we were busy, us, letting the maids and butlers take care of her for the rest of the day. I told my parents this, too, but they were getting angry and ignored me, so I stopped talking about it.
Skylar had a paper in her desk that we never found until I found it, it said, “They kept me alone, in a dark room of solitude with blood on the walls.”
I think Skylar thought we didn’t care about her anymore, I think she never noticed one thing, we tried, we’re still trying to be a good family, but I think we’re not supposed to be like normal families, good families, I think we should send Skylar away, send her to a better family who will make her happy.
I think that‘s what we’re supposed to do, I think we should give up on trying, let her be happy on another planet, in another place, far away from her present life.
I think the therapist will agree with me, but I’m not sure my parents will.
I’m so sorry, everyone, at this point, I think you should tell me what to do until Skylar is back.
I miss my sister, I miss the one who hugged me when I was upset, I wish I never told her that letting her go to therapy is what she needed, I wish I told her I loved her before she left...
Please tell us why you'd like to report this post
Shhh, I'm supposed to be sleeping.
Ooof, I dunno if you trust me.
Skull is still in awful pain.
