Hello everyone, today is a very special day! An entire two years ago… I made this blog. Now I know I haven’t been very active on it in the past year, but Milo is still very much a part of me and my life. For those who don’t know, I am actually actively studying becoming an anthropologist and linguist. I always loved culture and language, but Milo opened up the world of linguistics to me and got me involved, so in a way I feel like I have him to thank for finding just what I wanted to do with my life. Many of the friends I’ve made here have been lasting and great friendships - Helga, Jafar, Ariel, Fawn, Hatter, Lauren, Dani, Aladdin, Jasmine, Nala, Athena, Thomas, Mayrx, Moze - and more, thank you so much for being a part of my life these past two years. You were with me through a hard time in my life and this place used to be my safe place. I’ve moved on to new places now, but I’ll never forget how important those times were to me, and I’ll never leave this place for good.
I can’t believe it’s been a whole two years of my life spent here with you all. And I hope there are many more years to come.
I could always bring back that sideblog so as not to cause a ruckus <3333 And you will always be my Milo.
Of course! If you felt that was necessary, that’s always an option. I love you, dear. We should start planning our next thread!

Tamara had heard footsteps running back off of the pier but then a soft voice calling to her.
Maybe she could still succeed in drowning this individual- whoever they may be.
She slowly floated out into the moonlight, turning around to make distinct eye contact with the stranger…
Their eyes met and Milo’s widened in surprise. By the light of the moon he saw the shimmer of her scales beneath the water and his mouth opened slightly in surprise. “You’re a mermaid?” He breathed, looking at her in wonder. He’d only met one before, so he wasn’t shocked that she existed - only, this one seemed different from the other. “I-I’m not going to hurt you… um… can you speak?” She was mesmerizing, enticing in a way he hadn’t felt before.
The sailor was inches away from his gruesome fate when a sudden surprise interrupted Tamara’s plan.
Someone had knocked over a few barrels from the dock; which in turn created huge splashes that sprayed water on the sailor and Tamara. The sailor was no longer hypnotized and scrambled to his feet after realizing the events that had just occurred.
At this point, Tamara had been so shocked by the interruption, that she was hiding underneath the boat dock. She had been seen by another… But by who?
The man stepped back, still looking confused. “It’s alright.” Milo tried to reassure him, stepping toward the dock. He crept toward the edge and kneeled, trying to see into the dark water. “Hello…? Is someone down there?” He still didn’t know what to make of what he saw. Maybe she had been trying to get help? But this man looked like he’d been hypnotized almost, and so Milo didn’t know what to make of it.
aaaaand now right after seeing this we’ve got Milo auditions going on like last time. lols
Ah, eff it. You’re my Helga and I’m your Milo no matter what. No one else will have what we have. You know I would just throw in my audition and take the spot if not for the fact I don’t want to mess it up. I currently don’t even know where this blog stands in terms of groups and activity and everything.

Horrible memories began rushing back to her. Tamara needed to get away from them but she could never out swim them. The man she loved once a long time ago still held her heart in his hand but it felt like he was squeezing the life out of it.
The only way she could disappear from her memories was to relive older ones. The ones where her sisters had shown her how to kill a man, one that only paid attention to beauty.
She swam near a new port that she had never traveled to before. All lights in the town had been dimmed for the night except for a few that were seen on boats near the dock.
Just her luck she would be floating by a boat that a sailor had walked off of.
“Are you my jolly sailor bold?” she called out with a gentle tone.
The sailor turned to face the direction of her voice.
“My heart is pierced by Cupid…”
“I disdain all glittering gold…”
The sailor began to walk towards the ledge of dock. He knelt down, beginning to lean towards her floating figure, entranced.
Milo wandered the docks, comforted by the sounds of the sea. He’d begun to miss the water while being on the surface city. He longed for the cool blues and golds of his city that lay so deep in the ocean. But he couldn’t leave, not yet. There was still work to be done here.
But tonight, unable to sleep, he’d come out to the oceanside, letting it ease his mind. The lights were low but he could see the shapes of the boats and the piers that stretched out across the dark waters below. He passed by one and saw a man… what was that? He stopped, adjusting his glasses and squinting. The man appeared to be leaning down over the docks, looking intently at something in the water…
Milo took another step forward and bumped into a barrel, knocking it over with a clunk. The man abruptly looked away, his expression dazed. Milo then saw what he had been looking at in the water - a woman floated there in the waves.
-stares at it all in awe, slowly smiling- I think I need to take a trip to Wonderland…
OOC: Well this was a beautiful, heart-warming thing to log in and see. Thank you so so so so much, darling.
this-changes-everything asked: Don't know when you'll see this but I love you and hope for you to come back one day and we can be Helga/Milo forever and everything will be perfect <3
Helga! Look, I’m back!! And Helga/Milo perfection forever would be very welcome, yes. <3 I love you and miss you so much. I can’t wait to RP with you again.

A fellow tumblr-er, and good friend has recently lost her home in a terrible fire over the weekend. She’s one of the bravest people that I know, and has moved her life from CT, to CA. In the midst of following her dreams, this horrible event has happened. Anything to help her out continuing with …
You guys may remember a Fantastic Role-Player: http://beardsotwisted.tumblr.com/. . Jafar, who I had the pleasure of writing with for a brief time. But even after all this time, I’ve kept in contact with her, and just recently found out that she lost her apartment to a fire. Being the type of person that I am, I couldn’t just stand and watch someone who has been through so much, lose so much, and not help in some-way.
With your help, Me and Milo are trying to raise money to help her get back on her feet. It’s one thing when you have a small fire and lose a few things, but its another when you’ve lost everything. . Right down to your socks!
I created this page for Jaffy, and ALL money gathered will go directly to her. PLEASE. PLEASE reblog this, donate what you can and help a fellow tumblr roleplayer get back on her feet, and back following her dreams !
Thank you. So much.
Hey guys, Milo here! It’s been awhile, at least a few months since I’ve been around. My life has changed a lot in these months, and mostly for the better. Poor Milo here has had to bear with me through all of this stuff, he’s a tough one and refuses to give up. This blog may be mostly dead but as long as I still have friends to come back to, I will. I’ve slowly but surely been reconnecting with the important people I met through this blog and it made me want to come back again so badly, so here I am. And I have a few things I wanted to tell you guys!
First, just recently I even went to go visit Jafar and Thomas (gosh, talk about old times), which was an incredible experience. It was my third time seeing Jafar, as luck would have it, and for those who remember the crack-OTP that was Thomas and Milo - YES, WE WERE ACTUALLY IN THE SAME ROOM FOR AWHILE. I still can’t believe it, it’s amazing.
And more importantly, there’s the situation dearest Jafar is in right now. Ariel put up a post about it earlier, and it’ll be reblogged right after this post. Jafar is a very dear friend and roleplayer who recently followed her dream and got to the place she wanted to be all on her own. I’m so proud of her strength and hard work to go do what she wanted to do with her life. Unfortunately, she’s been thrown another hurdle, and just this past weekend her entire apartment was burned down.
Ariel and I have set up a fundraiser and it would mean the world to all three of us if you could contribute. I mean it, even if it’s only a dollar, it’s a big help. Every bit counts. Please reblog her post and get the word out, because we want to help Jafar get through this. There’s a big support network here on tumblr and now is the time to utilize it as much as possible. Please. <3
As for me, I just might start roleplaying Milo again! If you’d like to start a thread or revive an old one with me just let me know. Milo is still my heart and it’d be amazing to see him active again, even if just a bit, because I haven’t gotten to use even a fraction of what I had planned for him.
ooc: Milo <3
Today at work was just rough. I saw your text though! And I wanted to reply to you. I was just so busy <3
A Milo Hug would certainly do the trick. And that trip to Disney World. So we could go to Prince Eric’s castle *cough*Imeanyourcastle ;)
[ Arieeeeel <3 coughyeswemustgotomycastle and hug forever. IT’S OPENNNNN NOW TOO it opened in December! I wonder if we could seriously plan a trip, oh my god. And oh good, I’m glad you saw it! I cried at the end, like I always do. And it woke up Eric like WHOA. <3 <3 ]
“I know it sounds a bit… far-fetched, but the findings of my grandfather and I are real! Just look at this - evidence of language, artifacts, and you can’t ignore Plato’s full account! Atlantis exists!” Milo still smiled, but his eyes showed the inner despair he took to the jeering stares of his colleagues, who had been chuckling or shaking their heads through his entire presentation.
“Atlantis has been and always will be a myth. You’re another Atlantologist who will soon develop another alien theory, I know it.” A man said, leaning forward in his chair as though to stand.
Milo could tear his hair out in exasperation. “I-I know some others have really discredited the research, I won’t say I’m oblivious to the- the conspiracies, but this isn’t like that!” He spoke quickly, so quickly his words tumbled and spilled over themselves. “This is true science, if you would- would just look- there are so many places we could possibly find something, i-if we only sent out some minor expeditions, we could- we could make some true leaps-“
The man had stood, shaking his head. “I think we’re done here.”
Milo tried to speak, but the rest of them had stood and were gathering their things, filing past him with entire disinterest his his words. He only quieted when he was alone, and the room went completely silent as he slumped his shoulders. The board at the museum only rolled their eyes when he tried to gather them to listen, and only seemed to do so out of protocol in the first place. Those had grown much less frequent and he now tried other sources, but every group seemed to have the same reaction.
“I’m not crazy…” He murmured, running his hands over his face and returning to the podium and gathering his things.
Back at home, Milo had shuffled glumly into his apartment, hanging his coat up and turning the light on. Books and paper fell from his arms to his desk that was already scattered with materials. “Hey kitty…” He smiled weakly at the white cat that had rubbed up against his ankles. “Still no luck today.” He sighed, picking Fluffy up and idly rubbing her ears as he went to the kitchen, retrieving cat food from the cupboard. He set her down at her bowl and served it, patting her one last time before returning to the living room and flopping in his chair. The end table beside him had another stack of papers on it and he absently lifted the top oneand scanned it.
Ad, Adlantis, Ag, Agitmil…
“Kaylob…t… tem… shom-ag… sh…shabat…” he muttered to himself. I was unable to…
The language was in so many pieces that there were very few things he could properly say in Atlantean. There were no proper sentences he could figure out how to complete, but he had the beginnings of an alphabet, and he couldn’t believe that alone was receiving no attention. Still, the sentence awakened his brain and he cracked a genuine smile at the work he saw on the paper. So what if no one believed him yet? He just had to keep trying. Because Atlantis was there, and he knew it, just like his grandfather knew it. There was no way Milo would give up now. Still smiling, he stood and went to his desk, flicking the light on there and returning to work.
