I wish that I had more time to play with the RPG constantly. Damn school, damn finals.

Minerva and Moody finally started to move in a positive direction. Of course, the problem with getting them together is that we know that we have to break them apart. I'm going to be an emotional wreak that day, I know. They are so darn cute together.

But I'm still confused as to how we are going to break them up. Conflict of interest is going to be involved, I know, but what and how still eludes me. Any ideas from members are welcome and appreciated.

*sigh* I wish that we didn't have to do this to them. The less pleasant aspects to playing God, I suppose.

Lordy, but Christina has reminded me as to why I signed up to do this in the first place. It is just too much fun. Because they are so darn cute. I mean, honestly. Have you ever seen a more awkward pair? Playing God is -- again -- too much fun.

It's going to be hell to break them up, you know.

I know! We'll write to Rowling and demand that she somehow work this into the plot of Book 7 so that there's hope for them in the future! ...as if that would happen... But it's nice to wish that they could somehow get there.

THERE, I UPDATED!!
HAPPY?!?!?


We can do something over the weekend - I'll be in E-town, but I'll grab the computer and hop on-line and we can action to our hearts' content.

Hi, I'm Pretending to Be the UN [23 Feb 2005|09:41pm]

[ mood | uncomfortable ]

I'm under the assumption everything is okay (or going to be okay . . . I hope?) after the last post here?

I don't believe anyone was trying to be dictatorial. The guidelines Erin gave were merely meant as guidelines. Maybe her presentation seemed a little offensive, but we know she likes to make "official" posts like that, and, well, it had to get out somehow. She is our Hermione/McGonagall, after all. I respect that she took the initiative to make the post, even if the results weren't so nice-- and I'm sorry that any feelings were hurt.

As for the protocol for RP posting, I came up with the format, which is based off that of other RP communities I've seen. So, please, blame ME if there's a problem with the format, instead of each other. Maybe it's deeper than that, but, if it's about protocol, it is really all my fault.

There are only three actual guidelines, which have been around since Day One, listed on the infopage.

The GuidelinesCollapse )

The thing is, most of you are doing this already. There are a couple instances of using netspeak *sits* "Oh, Bob, you smell bad!" *smacks Bob* but it REALLY doesn't matter if that continues to go on. We need people too badly, and you have a favorite form, we really can't stop you, because we love you too much to lose you over something as dumb as that.

Also, remember, these are just GUIDELINES!!! I am like the United Nations-- the non-Security Council part-- you see . . . I can give you recommendations of ways to do stuff, but I cannot enforce it worth a rat's ass. I love you all too much to kick you out.

As Christina said, it's about having fun; we can't let protocol get in the way of that. *Is Hufflepuff-y* LET'S ALL BE FRIENDS, GUYS!!! OUR CHARACTERS BITCH AT EACH OTHER ENOUGH!!! ^_^

I hate to be the bitchy person, but as the protocol mod, I must commence...

I know that we all have different styles of writing. I, for one, like reading the different styles because it gives a literary face to each character. However, it appears as if not everyone understands how the RP comm works. So, a tutorial is in order. Lucky for you they're free!

Firstly, when posting in your character's private journal, it is to be written as a journal. Same as when you update your journal. You just talk about stuff that you did, what you're going to do; it is reported in the past and future tense, uless you are saying "I'm feeling this, that, and the eggroll I had for last night."

Secondly, please don't double post. Physical interactions of characters take place in [Bad username: secret_chamber>, questions about characters, policy, timeline, random announcements and anything else go in here (<lj user=]), and your characters reactions, thoughts, journal, etc. goes in the journal of your character (i.e. _mcgonagall_m).

Thirdly, when posting in [Bad username: secret_chamber> for physical interactions between characters, please write in third person format. This makes is easier to read and provides some semblance of uniformity to the comm. I&apos;m all for individualism, but seeing everything all nice and neat makes me happy (there&apos;s a reason my nickname is Hermione, you know). Please refer to <a href=]Minerva and Moody's Interactions</a> for an example if needed. (Yes, a shameless plug for my two favorite characters, I know.)

Other than that, kudos for the frequent updates, great job on the RPing, have fun, keep your noses clean, and I love you all very much. Any questions, please feel free to comment or IM me (see <lj user="_mcgonagall_m> userinfo for that). Thanks for reading!

Completely unrelated at all to current community drama:


Sorry to break the solemn moments going on and all, buuuuut, on this page here, in which we see our hero Al cuddling with 'Niravan in the third floor corridor...


I was listening to music. And there is something touchingly adorable about that particular "scene" in conjunction with the song "Shikkari! TRY La La" from the Azumanga Daioh character soundtrack (on Osaka's part :). I will send a copy of the song to anyone who wants to see. It's beautifully hilarious and I just couldn't keep it to myself.



Oh, God. *dissolves into laughter, again*

Soooooooo.

._.U I've missed a lot, I guess you could say. I'm very sorry that I'm not more regular with this stuff, my sincerest apologies. *bows profusely*

I'll be more regular I SWEAR on my grave. Please, PLEASE PLEASE forgive me!

Hey, to the newer peeps - make sure you add the rest of us! I don't have a couple of people on my "friend of" list. Blair was one of them, I remember, as was the new Malfoy character. Just a reminder! Thanks!

Hey, whose the headmaster during this time period? I can't remember and I don't have enough time to go read the entire 3rd book to find out.

I was really bored, and rather than do my homework, like any sensible human being, I made a picture.

It's on the page as the background. I guess it doesn't have to be, because it's kind of rinky. But I likes it.

It's under here, too, for a better look.Collapse )

Naturally it doesn't have to be kept. And this is so TOTALLY off topic. But I had fun. I think it's cute. Verdict?


I love Harry Potter. I'm so fucking glad JKR is a genius and wrote it. ^ ^ What else would I spend my time with, if not for the HP?


*contented sigh* Life...is pretty good.

Okay, so how do we want to do this Yule Ball thing? This is the first RPG I've ever really orchastrated...or participated in, really. -_-()

We've got some stuff going on, but it's scattered. Any suggestions on how to tie it all together? One big SWEEPING all inclusive post about how great the Great Hall looks, and everyone can comment on it to provide action? Everyone make their own post? A little bit of both?

Let's get this together. We've got a good start... And yay! Amy answered us! :D

YAY! We've got people going!

Well, Christina and I are going for the Yule Ball, anyways. At some point, Amy, we're going to come down from the Gryffindor Common Room and then we get to wow Spica with our l33t dancing skillz. Recently learned ones, at that. Hopefully you'll get online sometime tonight and then we can do something.

I'm really bored...and I wish it wasn't late in the afternoon, so I could have people to rp with.

So pathetic.

So we're all guilty of community ignoring... But that doesn't mean that we can't resurrect the comm! We can repair the damages that we've done!

I guess the Yule Ball is moving on right along with schedule, or SOMETHING, since we've had two or three or five or something posts about it. So. Get your asses in gear, ladies and gentlemen. We need to do this thing. I'll go "pass out invitations" in journal. :D


Raaaaaaaaaaaaa Yule Ball!

HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT.

We need to get our asses in gear and write for this thing, peeps. This means you.

I will be shamelessly whoring this fact in my personal LJ for the next few days.

We need to become active again. I'm all for doing the Yule Ball several weeks late, for the simple fact that it will be fun. And I want to make shit happen with Minerva and Moody.

Go, young padiwans, and write faithfully for the RPG.

[ mood | a bit of a sore throat . . . ]

We have a Blair Elderbar, now . . . a very important asset in some plottage between Rigel and Spica, as you shall soon see, muhaha . . .

So, everyone welcome Jessica, aka Blair Bones, a 5th Year Ravenclaw:

blair_elderbar

Yeah . . . and that's good for everything . . . so . . . right . . . we'll get going with that Yule Ball thing, then . . . ^_^

Okay, the Yule Ball, kids.

Here's how we're going to do this. While Erin had some CRAZY idea about having IM RPG going on and then posting them on one general Yule Ball post...I say we just start a Yule Ball post, or posts from different character persepctives, and go with it over a period of a few days (3 or 4) so everyone can have in on it. For instance, I, "Alastor", will be away decorating Christmas trees on Saturday, and then in Chicago on Sunday. So I won't be able to do much...but I really want to!



Suggestions? Critiscisms? Comments? Toasts? Bananas?


I found "Harry Potter" in Latin at the bookstore today. It was rockin'.






Look, Amy, I'm listening to "your" song!

So Erin and I were talking on AIM about the Yule Ball. Not that I'll have much say. Hagrid is a third year so won't be going. (Unless someone can think up an interesting way to get him there) But I did have the idea that maybe we could have the first attack be the night of the Yule ball. After all the dancing, alcohol, snogging *cough*MoodyMinerva*cough*, and drama. Someone gets mad, throws punch on someone, storms out of the room and then WAHBAM! - there's a stoned person on the floor outside the great hall!! This is just an idea of course. It's mainly up to you slytherins, especially you, Riddle. Hagrid's just the poor innocent in this story. Well anyways, Erin said I should post this and see what you guys think. But if not for Yule Ball, we really need to start the Chambers attacks. That way we can have enough time to get into it and then round it off by the end of the term. Let's see what everyone has to say, though.
