So I need to go on LOA because my sister is in a very, very difficult spot right now.
She's been working on graduating her animation college, right? And both the midterm and final has to do with their senior thesis-that being a full five-minute short animated out, with all the steps (boarding, sketches ect) by may. She and all the other 23-ish students were working on this project all year. 
Well, roughly two days ago, her school became one of the most despicable thing imaginable. 
They sent out a mass email to the animation students, upping the standards for the entire project-and instead of being, you know, a NORMAL SCHOOL and applying the changes to the course for next year-they applied the changes that neither teacher nor student were working on this year. All but 3 students passed the midterm since the work they'd been working on since SEPTEMBER wasn't up to par with the new rules they legitimately set up days earlier. 
Long story short-depending on the student-they'd have to redo 3 out of the 5 minutes they were working on all year. That can be roughly 100,000 drawings. In a mere four weeks-or they don't graduate. PERIOD.
So, with the exception of those three students-all 20 of those students either dropped out, are going to try to shove 100,000 extra drawings in the few weeks they demanded the change-or are going on an an academic LOA until the next spring semester.
And that means only 3 students are graduating out of that animation class. My sister was not lucky to be one of those 3, and is beyond devastated and is coming back home for a solid year. I'm incredibly, horribly worried about her physical and mental state, so there's no way in heck I'd be able to dedicate the attention necessary to be on this forum. 
And they were going to kick her out to the curb. She had to go to five different people and beg to be given time to pack up after the LOA was approved-including the head dean himself who came up with this "lovely" idea to make the school "more like harvard." (legit, that was one of the reasons in the email given.) Walt Disney himself wouldn't have been able to pull this off-let alone if it was a single-person project and have it look even a fourth-way decent in the process. 
I'm sticking myself on LOA for the rest of the month, starting today 3/24 until 4/1 and will adjust it as I see how the situation changes. I might be off of LOA by then, might switch it to a temporary LOA-or end up extending it. With the phonecalls I got today, I cannot tell. All I know is I'm very scared for her, with how she's been acting and how she's been talking about herself. We go to pick her up on sunday.
I'll still be around for RPs and to check on my sections from time to time, but my activity as a whole will be at an all-time low during this period. Contact me through either PM on here or on discord-even if I'm offline, I still get emails/notifications, and will reply to them as soon as possible.
Thank you for understanding.

Welcome back Neptune!

Cosmos-hime... I don't even know what to say. Sounds like something from a nightmare.

She's so lucky to have your support. Hopefully the year off will turn into an opportunity in a way.

I'll try to help keep an eye on your section while you're gone. All the best!!

I know this is some ways off, but I'll be taking a week's LOA, May 4-11. I will not be reachable except by PM/DM. Please use Discord DM if it is urgent. I will not be bumping or responding to threads. I will be watching posts in my section only.

Nothing exciting. Just a bit of a pile over here IRL that I need to catch up on before it grows too high ^^;;;.
