Yes, I know, I left for like 8 months myself and still will only come to certain threads. But I thought I'd try to goad her into returning. Always worth a shot.

It looks like I've actually seen a bunch of these, mostly on Shudder who, I guess, had almost all of them. For what' it's worth I've really enjoyed all the ones I've seen.
