Standard disclaimer: Leave your loathing of meta, World of Warcraft, or community diaries outside. If you think we should be playing your MMO instead, start a guild and write a recruitment diary. Don't leave a comment here and then get all hurtful when it isn't received with flowers and candy. This goes double for people coming in to attack guildies over other diaries or comments - STAY OUT! Link to your recruitment diary is OK though.

I'll let Ninotchka break the news:
Somewhere in the Caverns of Time, the earth stirred. Possibilities flashed into and out of existence. The very fabric of the universe began to unravel. Suddenly, a sword burst out of the ground, held by a skeletal hand! Rumbling and churning with violent arcane potential, possibilities warped and twisted, magickal energies flashed, the Light and the Dark struggled together, and in a burst of incalculable wonder, Team Kaels rose from the dead!Here's the raiding report from Team RubiPam:
Except for someone who slept late.
Yes, the rumors are correct, we aiten’t dead. Team Kaels dragged ourselves out of our summer stupor and reconvened last Friday night. And we proceeded to whoop Dragon Soul’s collective butts. The Your Mama jokes were flying, reference was made to goat porn, the only thing missing was Taymatt saying that he couldn’t heal this. But we’ll get there. We remembered most of our rotations amidst a fun-filled romp through the early bosses, and we slew heroic Blackhorn on our last pull of the night. Jazzi, on his shaman Nekiros, was kind enough to fill in for a certain person who wiped to the sandman boss.
Team RubiPam report:And, of course, Mahuae's Tab Eight Report:
We're still knocking at the door of Heroic Boat boss, having completed the previous 5 bosses on heroic now. We were missing some of our top DPS last week and still made some good progress once we figured out we could, indeed, two heal it, so we hope to make more progress tonight. We are starting to discuss our plans for MOP, and there may be some scheduling changes (who knew Alaska was an hour different even from Pacific time?!!! How does THAT happen?), but we hope to keep most of the group together to take on Pandaria.
I have put a thread on the raid forum for people to respond to if they're interested in progression raiding in MOP and are not currently a member of either raid group - if we don't have enough folks for a 3rd progression group, which seems likely at this point, we can still plan on organizing guild lfr's in Pandaria when they become available. And there may be spots opening in the two existing groups once things shake out a little more and we get closer to Sept. 25th.
