wait, what was I saying again? Oh yeah, Great Job Graysonk95! it makes me sad that the role play community kind of forgot about you, choosing instead to side with He who Should Not Be Named , making the choice to pay for a bus that is not that good as compared to yours, and doesn't have the play value that you consider.
