Like @raybot says, you don't have to stay here if you don't want to. Just please tell us you're okay
(I'm very concerned. Has anybody heard from gills? There hasn't been anything new on the one tumblr of his I know about and I really want him to be okay)
No idea. The one person who interacted with his account with worry when he left has no idea of how to contact him either and just hopes he okay. Apparently he's done the disappearing thing before? I do hope he's well, though.
any updates on whether or not gills is okay?
there's a post on their blog from a few days back saying the blog won't be active anymore but that's all i got. idk if they have any other urls.
that doesn't exactly bode well
i am still seriously worrying that gills might actually be dead, or about to die
Has anyone tried messaging his tumblr, Skype, (other accounts) at all recently?
Edit: It's been almost two weeks, fuck... I really hope he's okay and just not posting here/on his tumblr...
I've been debating about mentioning this, but... gills was not his first account on kintsugi. I don't know what his first one was, but it does set a precedent of just ending an online presence and then starting again from scratch.
For whatever that might be worth.
i hope he just decided to restart from scratch
@TheMockingCrows @local troublemaker @rats
since you three are the only ones i'm aware of who know any of his blogs, can any of you confirm that gills is still alive?
@Ipuntya he messaged me from a freshly-minted sideblog that had, and continues to have, zero content or personalization or even a title :< so i got nothin', unfortunately
I only knew the one by chance and it's still just the goodbye note.
was it the venting blog? the nsfw blog? the discourse blog?
?? I don't know the guy at all/how many blogs he had, I'm not sure which it falls into the category of? It was Gillprince, so whichever one that was.
i certainly don't want to butt in too bad but nothing about his last post in this thread pings me as "i'm going to commit suicide". to me it just reads as "i've left my home and won't have internet access" so... hopefully that helps someone to not assume the worst. please.
i'm under the impression that he has ceased his online presence entirely. this. since he outed himself to his mom and was told he was no longer welcome in her home, we can assume that he no longer goes to college either, since she was the one paying for it. he has also cut contact with his boyfriend. i'm not sure if anyone else at all he knows irl is still in contact with him, and it doesn't look like it given he mentioned he no longer has "any ties to anyone any more." this would include his dad, which means that if he is still alive, he may very well be homeless and living on the streets (and presumably without internet access). it is also winter now.
best case scenario i can reasonably hope for, he's staying in a homeless shelter
and i feel that's pretty optimistic given how much the guy struggles with his brain
i'd rather not imagine any other scenario
hopefully this is just me being overly paranoid and pessimistic
I met him IRL once a few months ago but we didn't exchange contact info so I'm afraid I can't help :(
