The rest was cut off by a link, clicking on which redirected to a Periscope stream, and a shaky one at that.
"Trav, Trav, lookit, there's like thirty people here now."
"Hooly fuck....thirty people know who I am?..."
"W-WHO ARE YOU, HOW ARE YOU IN MY HOUSE?!"
"I-I'm beginning to feel like a Trav God, Trav God.." he starts giggling uncontrollably. "Hahaaa...I made a funny."
At think point the camera finally points at the happy (and drunk) couple, a fox demon with her head thrown back in a loud primal laugh. "Don't! Don't make me laugh like that it's embarrassing!"
Koto and Travis Cassidy were laying at awkward angles on their couch, their legs tied together in wild knots in a poor attempt at cuddling, the phone camera struggling to stay steady in the woman's hands and struggling to keep Travis in frame.
"Okay, okay, listen up!"
Koto paused for a moment
"G-gosh..babe you don't need to be so aggressive...just, take it easy man..."
"I'M TIRED, I'M WASTED....I LOVE YOU DARLING."
"h-honey, advertise the stream.."
"Oh I'm a born shill, born to shill, natural born shiller, journey with me into the mind of a maniac doomed to be a shiller since I came out the nut-"
"No! N-no nutting! Just shill the thing!"
"I'M GONNA NUT!" Koto grabbed her half finished drink and started to swig.
Travis doesn't hesitate to snatch the phone out of Koto's hand, nearly causing it to drop to the floor.
"H-hey party people, we're taking questions on this Peri-scoop thingy."
"OPEN FORUM OPEN FORUM" Koto could be heard chanting off camera. "Fuck! I spilled on my shirt!"
Koto stepped over Travis and smacked him in the face with her tail on the way past.
"Deal with it, punk!"
"Urgh...we'll answer them 'til the big ball drops!"
Travis ends the recording of the video.
(Authors' note: We will answer all questions over the next week in character! Have fun!)
Quick check to see who's in or out! If don't hear back from you by the end of January I'm just going to assume you're out and let new people in. Anyone that's show me CAW WIP I'll assume are in.
Green = In + Have 2k18 CAW or my responsibility to make it Yellow = In but don't have CAW Red = Out

Right off the bat I want to say I'm sorry. But when I started RISE I made a promise that I wouldn't overwork myself and focus on the real world off the site if anything got dicey.
The last month has had a lot of ups and downs, but the downs have been pretty profound, and working on a ROSE-level one-man production on a deadline is the worst possible thing that you could ask me to do right now. I would rush myself and the show would not be the best quality it could be, if I finished it at all.
So with that in mind, CLOSE is being delayed from the Jan. 13th scheduled date. Subsequently, the ROSE National E-Wrestling Day showcase is outright cancelled.
I truly wanted to get CLOSE done on the 5 year anniversary of Amy's title win as a nice little mark for the last full ROSE show. With the date change I'll likely split CLOSE into two days rather than an all day event depending on length.
RISE episodes and the RISE/FILR showcases will go on as normal, and the 2k18 switch is still not happening until after NEWDay.
