So, My sister died. That's bad.

She may have been murdered. That's worse.

She had a 7 Year old girl. Even Worse.

That 7 year old is being fought over by a responsible party, and a compulsive liar/gambler who wants the potential murderer more involved in the girls life. I can't even think it's so bad.

Given the above. I need to bail out. I have a burning man ticket, and a burner express ticket to sell, dont even know how that works...

Out of everything I'm dealing with, selling my ticket and giving up BM is the hardest. I might end up homeless and jobless(because my boss, is my landlord, is my father, who is funding the compulsive liar/gambler's legal case) but that's not the thing that's hitting home.

So as much as I need it right now, I'm out. I'm sorry everyone.

There's still a great group of Virgin Burners making a go of the event, and I wish them all my best. I'll see them in the dust eventually, but I won't be with them.

Divreon, I'm so sorry. I can't imagine.

You'll probably be able to sell your ticket easily depending on the circumstances under which you purchased it.

The Burner Express ticket is apparently non-transferrable and non-refundable. (Were it me, I'd ask then anyway, figuring I had nothing to lose.)

Wow. Just... wow. I hate it when Life dumps on good folks like this. And major props to you, Divreon, for making a hard choice and doing what you think is right.

You'll be in our thoughts, and we shall have a toast in the Dust to you in absentia.

I lost my sister suddenly almost 20 years ago. I still miss her. And that was just a car crash thing.
It sounds like you are in a messy situation, that's going to take a lot of going through.
I wish I knew of a legal resource that could help. Or anything that could help.
If you need to talk, pm me. Or, just check in on the Fuck and Bar threads.
Be careful talking about the legal stuff on the board. I'm sure that goes without say, but a reminder never hurts.

And I have no words for the pain and horror you must be going through right now. If you're like me, expect 6 months of numbness/zombie time.

Take care man. I'm so sorry to hear about that. It's really hard to understand why things happen the way they do sometimes. You'll be back and we'll make sure to make up for it when you hit the dust for your first time!!!
