I think a good way to go about it would be to release confessions in blocks of, say, 5 or 10 every day. A massive single dump is a lot of noise all at once, and spreading it out over a week or so gives us more time to read and discuss each confession.

My main and several alts just confessed. When they are published, I'll send a reward (of your choice) to the first person to correctly pair character and confession. Think of it as blackmail! (Or if that's OOC, a token of gratitude for discretion) Either send a message to the character or PM me on here. My alts are as follows:

One didn't confess anything though.

Oh, boy. We're at 60 confessions now, so it's going to be tough to pick out four confessions from all those.
For that matter, I'll be randomizing the order of the confessions during release, since otherwise they'd most likely be in a row.
The moment Hallowmas is over, I'll begin publishing here, in batches of 7. Always 7, don't you know.

I've put in a confession or two of my own, as well. I can't offer anything for those who guess which those are, though.

*wiggles excitedly* I've submitted stuff for all of mine. Alys, Nikki, Doc, shy, and Angie have all made their confessions.

*impatient wriggling*

--
Lady of Cold Steel, Lady of the Flit, Lady Alyssana Grey. A formidable woman, hard to read and slow to trust. Darkness lurks inside her.

Alts: (please direct all inquiries to Alys & say who they're for)
-Nikki, the Playful Daredevil, leading the constables on merry chases across London at every available opportunity. It's not a good robbery if you didn't get chased~
-Shylarah, waifish, wide-eyed, painfully foreign, entirely untamed. Her search for a way home now leads her to Parabola. There's something about her...
-Dr. Maxwell Thomas, a kindhearted physician who can't stand to see suffering. Moral to a fault, even to his own detriment. Unlucky in love.
I would rather be taken for a fool than deny aid where it is needed.
-Angie, the Cheeky Sharpshooter. Got her start with the Regiment and proudly operated their cannon for years. Rowdy, rough, and among the best shots in London.

All four of mine have confessed, and should anyone by any chance guess them I'll send you a bag of dead rats. Should that interest you. Who am I to judge?

I will accept any social actions on Fallen London(unless its a box of live rats. I already got rid of the d---ned things once and am not eager to repeat the endeavor).

I forgot how difficult it is to write in-character when I am so used to metagaming! That was fun. It'd probably be more fun to see what everyone else wrote, though. If the grind wasn't so intense and time-sensitive I would say "I can't wait for Hallowmas to end".

On second thought - I can't wait for Hallowmas to end.

    Huffam's edition of the Gazette is out, and it's time to release the first batch of seven confessions.

    As a side note, this also means the form is closed. We capped out at 88 confessions, which will be released over the next... large quantity of days.


    Carried to the door by way of a Twitchy Messenger Bat, in morse code:
    "Sent by Vienna. Disliked methods. Ceased contact."


    A messy scrawl on a sheet of notebook paper, burnt at the edges:
    "I am a revolutionary. I must bring down the Bazaar. And yet, I cannot tear myself away from it. Notability and professions are used to entrap people, to make stories for it, and yet I still partake in them. I could simply quit my current profession of Glassman and instead take up medicine, but the lure of adventure, of forbidden knowledge, proves too great for me. I could stop dealing with Slowcake's, stop caring about my standing in that bl___y book, but I utilize it for so many transactions. As a revolutionary, I mustn't help the Bazaar, and yet I cannot resist its lures."



    Tall, thin letters written with an abnormal rightward slant:
    "I shelter an abomination under my wing. I take advantage of its antique knowledge and its vast network of rodent eyes, but more disgracefully too; I eat at its table, I drink its wine, and I politely avert my eyes when it flays yet another rat, right there by the table. Rats, you know, L.B. or not, they scream just like humans.
    On the occasions that I grow tired of the grotesque sight of its form, its face (I cannot tell what is worse; its mask of rat heads, or what lies beneath), I threaten to hand it over to the good folk from menace eradiction, to disclose the location of its lair to Feducci, to kill it myself as I should've done, once, long time ago- but I never do."



    Faint red and lilac ink:
    When HE left London with his Clay goons, bloody secrets and stolen treasures, I was the part that got left behind. And I'm getting stronger.




    On elegant paper in neat script, marked only by tear-stains at the edge of the paper:
    “I bear such a weight, as a Hesperidean, because I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Lifebergs on fire off the shoulder of Tanah-Chook. I watched irrigo beams glitter in the dark near Khan’s Gate. All those moments will be preserved, like bones in amber. I cannot die.”



    And finally, carved on a slate of unmelting ice:
    "HIGH TREASON. OBSCURITY. AIDING AND ABETTING THE THIEF OF FACES. CONSPIRACY TO SOLICIDE.



    No prize for guessing who that last one was. Tomorrow: more confessions!

    EDIT: Hang on a second, that's only six isn't it? I promised seven, and seven ye shall have.
    Shaky and rushed, with paragraphs crossed out and rewritten:
    I had two vials left after the job was done. Sold them to an Urchin gang. Cantigaster. They were in a feud with another gang of urchins at the time. I needed the Echoes - I needed a Mirrorcatch to feel the Sunlight one last time...The scene that followed the day after was... (-the rest is incomprehensible-)

    Most certainly, given the full paragraph of that confession.

    Kudos to the one who has penned it!
