So, since it came up at least a couple times this weekend, and I didn’t think to clarify more readily: Bertrand is a bit of a sourpuss (to put it lightly), and with a naturally deep voice and my personal manner of speaking, a lot of what I say in-character can be at least a little abrasive. I want everyone here to know that I have nothing but love for each and every one of you, and if I ever were to have a problem, I would tell you privately out of character, and certainly wouldn’t give you the cold shoulder in-character just because I was upset. I realized too-late that a lot of people haven’t seen (or heard) me in at least 2 years, so their most-recent impression of Artemis was Artemis-as-Bertrand, and while I love pretending to be a grumpy, brusque man, I would like to think I’m personally a bit more approachable.
In short: It’s really great to see you all again after so long, and we’re all cool Out of Character, I promise. I’m very sorry if I gave the impression otherwise, and if I stepped on any toes, let me know privately so I can make it up to you. <3
(And Staff, if you feel this needs a different Forum Category, let me know and I’ll do whatever I have to in order to fix it.)
