You ever feel like it’s hard to meet characters? Hard to find reasons to throw two characters together, and not sure you want to commit to a whole scene? Let’s try speed dating: Comment with your characters below, and people will tag in for a speed date. To simulate the time limit, each conversation can go no longer than 7 tags from each person. Characters who come as a set can absolutely join too, nothing wrong with a three-way or more-way date! (And no, these absolutely do not have to be dating-type conversations. Speed arguing, speed hating, speed friendly chatting, those are good too. Just throw characters at each other.)

This is all off-the-record, of course, not really IC. Unless someone has a character who wants to ICly set this up.

Thank you to everyone for tagging and enjoying the unofficial fight club, its wonderful to read all the threads in my notifs. Also its open as long as it needs to be, so don't worry if it feels late and you have an idea.

Reynolds! This is a wonderful and sad OOM, I loved reading it.

All the Digimon OOMs are completely heartbreaking and gorgeous.

Loki argues with the door, this is such a perfectly Milliways' EP.

Now I've only touched on all that's been going on, share which threads have been keeping your attention and what you've finished.

 What would your character be like gender-switched? Would there be much of a difference, both physically and in the societal setting of their world.

With very few exceptions, characters interact with others in their world. Most work with them in some way. Of those, most even bother to care about other people. (I know there are exceptions.) And even if none of this happens in their own worlds, there's always Milliways.

So, how do your characters react to conflict within their social circles? For the ones who will put in more than zero effort, what will they do? For the ones who usually cannot possibly care less, what can make them care?

I'm back, y'all. Last week was soooo long and the move isn't done. Ugg.

Anyway, let's do some fic! Comment with pups you'd like to write for, we'll then comment back with prompts from which you'll write a short fic. And since AU week is sometime in the near future, how about the fic is a preview of the world you might be thinking of playing from?

Hey, so there hasn't been a fight club for a while and I know I have at least one pup who wants to hit and blow things up. I'm not planning on doing an official fight club but an unofficial one with Cassian out by the firing range and pells. Would anyone be interested?

ETA: Post is up here. I've set up a few subthreads, please add more, tag under. Let me know if you want Cassian anywhere if not I'll be tagging around. Have fun, channel the anger.

I had a question, and in trying to look up the answer to said question, I was faced with another one.

Which one of you is responsible for this? http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Roleplay/MilliwaysBar

I had no idea that page existed, and I'm tickled at it! It's great!


And since I never did find the answer to my original question, I'll ask it here as well. What is the hotel that the bar's rooms are supposed to be modelled after? I know its rooms are weird, and that's all I can remember.

Well, we made it to another Friday. My week, and the end of the week in general, has me thinking:

Sometimes things get overwhelming. Saving the world is as draining and frustrating as it is uplifting and invigorating; sometimes just plain old work gets utterly bogged down; even the nuts and bolts of being a supervillain can be unwieldy. How does your character maintain their drive and energy to achieve their goals?

The third play in the set that my guy William comes from is pretty much James III saying "Everyone in Europe is having a Renaissance and I want one too," and his wife saying "That's lovely dear but we can't afford a Renaissance."

So today's DE is: What would your characters splash out a fortune on, if only they had a fortune to splash around? For the fabulously wealthy characters, what's a big expenditure that they feel genuinely satisfied with?

I hope everyone's week is going well and not too horribly hot.

Eric and Pam have some very bad days.

The crew of the Ghost causes trouble and has serious discussions about what they're doing.

A creature is loose in Milliways.

This ended up a OOM heavy post so share what EPs and threads you've finished and are following.

Does your character keep some special object that their faith, destiny or goal can be focused on? It doesn't have to be religious, it could be deeply personal (in our pre-Millicanon, Galen keeping Jyn's toy stormtrooper) or a reminder of revenge (in the movie of LotR, Aragorn taking and wearing Boromir's glove). Keepsakes from lovers and statues of gods are of course a possibility, as well.


This daily entertainment post was inspired by the cuddly toy Bastet from the British Musuem which my actual living cats are now revering.

Hello, Tuesday in Milliways! Guess this is a new normal now. So, speaking of things becoming normal:

What traumatic experience has become normalized to your character?

Not that DEs are traumatic.

Subbing in again!

Has your character ever been stuck with a job or a task that they were really, really not suited for? How did it go? Was it a long-term thing, the whole premise of the character, or just a one-off WHY DID YOU ASK ME TO BABYSIT?!?! situation? .....Did they survive?

[personal profile] inlovewithwords  had so much fun with subbing last Friday they asked if they could pick up a DE day on a regular basis. Maru agreed to pass on her Tuesday, so welcome to our new DE Overlord Mod.

Salut à tous nos amis qui jouent ici ce 14 juillet. Je sais qu'ils ne sont pas vos jours (pour nos lecteurs, ceux sont le 5 juin et le 6 juin), mais je voulais le reconnaître tout de même. Vos santés.


Attendez...

Oops.

At least the high school skills haven't died completely?

Hi to all our friends who play here this Bastille Day. I know they're not your days (for our readers, those are the 5th and 6th of June), but I wanted to recognize it all the same. Your health.

In that spirit: what would your character defy authority--immediate or ultimate--for? What would your character die for?
