Until such time as I can find a suitable PB who isn't a walking piece of shit, Crowley's face will be a bit of Linn Puzzle's art. When I do find someone he will have always been that face so no one needs to worry about not recognizing him.

You know that little filter that usually stops you from saying things you know you shouldn't? Woops, it's gone. Totally and utterly gone for all our pups. Tag in with your pups, and then other pups will tag you with the first thing that pops into their head, no matter how inappropriate, unkind, or funny. With no filters, all our pups are now free to say all the things they'd usually keep to themselves.

Tag in, tag others, and enjoy the chaos that hopefully ensues.

So I'd been toying with this idea for a while, and finally decided to just go for it! LCRPG_Sandbox is a new OOC com for players to post, write, and share non-canon interactions. Everything from AUs, writing exercises, testing potential pups out, and, well, anything else you might want to do outside of the game.

It's purely optional, and all in good fun. I'm hoping to post monthly 'gathering post' style posts there, with a different theme each time. Sometimes with AU setups, sometimes with just simple plot ideas... 

Really, think of it as an extension of the OOC com, except where the OOC com mostly caters to the muns, this com will be for our pups. ^_^

I hope to play with you all there!

It's May 1st, and everyone knows what the first of May (NSFW) brings. (Or, a more work-safe version from Camelot.) So what better time for this meme?

All ties dissolved, all history abolished, totally clean slate, who would you matchmake?

Here's how it'll work:

1. Tag in your characters as usual.

2. For every character you tag in, match up two other characters and give a reason why (reasons can be the character's or your own).

Coming soon to a London near you, one Sirius Orion Black. Sirius is coming to modern London fresh from the death of the Potters, as of the moment when he confronted Peter Pettigrew, thanks to wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey magic stuff. I'll be posting a link to his private debut with Remus and a shiny new EP for you all to come meet the newest wizard on the block in the next few days, just as soon as work allows it, but I wanted to get this up because I'm very excited to play him! :D

If you want more deets, feel free to check out his wiki page.

- Jess for Sirius.

So I am doing a plot with Bobby that may be a sensitive or triggering topic for people, so I wanted to give a heads up so that no one gets blindsided. Bobby is developing an eating disorder that will grow worse over the next while, until Hex realizes what's going on and convinces him to get help. It shouldn't have much of an effect on public threads, and any private threads that deal with it more than casually will be tagged with a warning.

More details/specifics )

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me or PM me in Slack.

 It's Easter, I'm too ill to write an EP, so let's have a meme.

How to play:

1: Reply to this post with your pup, put their name in the title, and a gif in the message. (The gif can be of anything, it can be your PB, but doesn't have to be. This gif has no real significance, it's just an excuse to play with gifs.)
2: Respond to the top levels of other players IC, with your pups speaking only in gifs.
3: Profit?

Happy Easter/Pink Bunny Day

Angel of the Scutari is a pivotal story for Hex in canon. He travels with the Doctor and Ace to Scutari in the Crimea during the war, meets Florence Nightengale, and gets shot. There's actually a LOT more to the story, And AotS comes into play later in Hex's story arc, but for now I'm going to keep it simple. I'm going to write a one off and then post an EP for Hex in St. Bart's and he'll have called many of your pups. Those that he may not have called or texted can hear through the grapevine or divination or just happen into the wrong room while trying to vist an auntie or anything. I'm going to try to post Saturday.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up!

 I posted a poll over in Q's Journal: http://quartermaster-q.dreamwidth.org/10083.html

I'd love it if you all took a moment to fill it out! Thanks in advance!

I've been hoarding her for like a week, but it's time to bring Angelique out to play! Angelique (no last name, "utterly mysterious," as she says) has been modernized from Penny Dreadful canon and she wants to meet every single last one of your characters.

Angelique's wiki is over here. In canon, Angelique is clearly meant to be a trans woman in a time where those words didn't exist and weren't understood. In London, Angelique doesn't identify as transgender or as any gender. She is biologically male, presents as female, uses female pronouns, and likes her body just the way that it is.

Despite her presentation, it is probably not that difficult for modern people to realize Angelique was born male, and I have no problem with characters figuring this out in a way that makes sense for them! Heck, even in canon it's pretty clear that people figure out her "secret" within a couple minutes of meeting her. (Vanessa's face is especially amusing when she gets it. ^^)

I've filled in her backstory with an interest in the theater and costuming, so she might possibly be known to any characters with a theater background. She is also looking for a much safer job in sex work which is her primary profession. Any thoughts or questions, leave them here! I will get her debut up this weekend!

Or do, because RP is fun. IOW, it's mere with another new pup.

Belinda Von Brandt (yes, she capitalizes the V) is the chair of the board of Loreworks Entertainment, Ltd., a multimedia entertainment company.

She's also a dragon who hoards stories in all their forms rather than something as cliché as gold or jewels, and she wants to hear your stories too!

Her debut will probably be posted either tonight or tomorrow evening. In the meantime, if you have any questions, or thoughts on what your character(s) might know or discern about her, I'm happy to talk through things.

Test Run

You know the drill. Tag in with pups you're thinking about playing, or may want to play one day, and other players will tag you with current pups or potential pups of their own!

This will be open for several days. Have fun! (Don't neglect your IG threads though. ;p)

Time to take attendance!

We're getting ready to tidy up the wiki and the communities, but before we can we need you to comment bellow with all the pups you would like to keep in game. Doesn't matter how often you're playing them, if you want to keep them, list them below.

Also, since we're about to do a tidy, now is a good time to remind you all about the transfer app. If you (or a friend) are or were playing a pup in another game and you think they'd be a good fit here, the transfer app is short, sweet, and stress free: https://sites.google.com/site/lcrpgwiki/transfer-application

You have until next THURSDAY to reply. On Friday Shan and I will purge anyone not listed below.

If you are purged by mistake, you have two weeks to let us know (you'll be popped back into the game no questions asked). Wait longer than two weeks and you will have to reapply. This isn't us being bitchy, it's just our way of making sure our players are reading these posts and are fully engaged with the game.

Have a great weekend guys!

- Liz, for the Mods

We're into the final week of these questions, but remember you can still go back and answer later if you want. It's about having fun and thinking about your characters in ways you might not have considered.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

I will post a question here and also as a top-level below, and you as players or characters answer in the top level. Each day will bring a new question and a new top-level.

I promise that the questions will be mostly dumb, but some non-dumb ones will wriggle in. This will probably mostly be because I may not be a good judge of what's a dumb question.

Skip questions if you like. If you come in late feel free to answer out of order. Feel free to answer in character or all-in-one as a player. Questions or conversations about answers are welcome.


Day 1: What makes you so awesome? All love starts with love of self, I totally heard that somewhere.

Day 2: What do you want right this second? Or at least in the short term. Or you could take this as 'what do you miss'? Either way, no five-year plan or anything, but if you could have something right now what would it be?

Day 3: Ice cream flavor? What's your favorite? What flavor would you be? Any toppings? Feelings on ice cream in cake form? It's all about the frozen milk products today!

Day 4: What's your favorite holiday? Real or made-up, doesn't matter. If you don't have a favorite holiday, why not?

Day 5: Who’s your favorite fictional character? Books, comics, movies, tv - take your pic.

Day 6: The blue pill or the red pill? Which would you choose? Would you rather know or live in innocence?

Day 7: Write your epitaph. Let's end this on a grim note! :-D

It's Sunday, and that means it's time for a new dumb questions post. Remember you can still go back and answer previous questions if you want.

Part 1
Part 2

I will post a question here and also as a top-level below, and you as players or characters answer in the top level. Each day will bring a new question and a new top-level at least until I forget or run out of questions. (If you have ideas for dumb questions, please send them to me in email/Slack/etc. and I will add them to my list!)

I promise that the questions will be mostly dumb, but some non-dumb ones will wriggle in. This will probably mostly be because I may not be a good judge of what's a dumb question.

Skip questions if you like. If you come in late feel free to answer out of order. Feel free to answer in character or all-in-one as a player. Questions or conversations about answers are welcome.

Day 1: Tattoos or piercings? Do you have any, do you want any, and/or what are your thoughts?

Day 2: What is your favorite word? This can be a word your character uses a lot, just likes for no reason, is significant to them, whatever. One word. Explain if you want, but it's not necessary.

Day 3: Ice cream or chocolate-covered strawberries? Or favorite treat in general, to share or not, romantically or otherwise, I GUESS.

Day 4: How do you sleep? Back, side, stomach? Any rituals? Do you only get a good night's rest on your specially-made waterbed filled with the tears of the unrighteous? Where would you even get one of those?

Day 5: When do you want your clothes back? I don't even know what happened to them.

Day 6: How hot is the last person you texted? Don't tell me lies now.

Day 7: Fling, one night stand, or serious relationship? Presented without further instruction, take it as you will!

Are you ready for a brand new week of what kind of question is that?

I will post a question here and also as a top-level below, and you as players or characters answer in the top level. Each day will bring a new question and a new top-level at least until I forget or run out of questions. (If you have ideas for dumb questions, please send them to me in email/Slack/etc. and I will add them to my list!)

Skip questions if you like. If you come in late feel free to answer out of order. Feel free to answer in character or all-in-one as a player. Questions or conversations about answers are welcome.

Day 1: What's your favorite musical genre or instrument? Do you play or sing? Are you tone-deaf? Does it even matter? It's music day!

Day 2: How did you meet your best friend? Any best friend, in London or not!

Day 3: What makes you feel safe or comfortable? What do you want (or do) when you're sad or stressed?

Day 4: What's the sweetest or sexiest thing someone could ever do for/to you? Pick one, answer both, whatever!

Day 5: What's your favorite food? I know, I know, an obvious one, but I've got to have a couple.

Day 6: Something you want to say to an ex? No names or context required. If you have no exes, make it something you want to say to someone who's left you or is otherwise gone.

Day 7: What's your favorite flower? Bonus: What does that mean? (ETA: or here, with thanks to Umi. I knew there was a site I liked better, but I was too lazy to look for it)

Pending some stuff with Kersen being done before I throw the once a Viking in, this is Fan', bringing you Eric Northman out of True Blood! He will soon be taking over as vampire sheriff of London, because someone needs to get this city under control (and won't Kersen be relieved). He is pre-True Blood in the sense that I'm yanking him out of Louisiana and setting him down in London, and there's been no Great Revelation and he couldn't point to Bon Temps on a map, so no, he doesn't know about fairies and how amazing they taste yet, or any of that shit, and he is still a cold bastard. For the most part.

I'll set some stuff up for his entry into game, and then only EP him, at which point I will want all the logs! (No, I don't expect most of them to go well.)

I've added a bit about the True Blood type of vampires in the wiki, for anyone who's curious, and I'm available for any and all questions you might have, too!

And if anyone wanted to (temp?) app Godric, or plain app Pam or Nora or anyone, I would be delighted. Just sayin'.

Oh also! He can glamour people (the True Blood version of compulsion), so let me know if you don't want that to happen to you and yours. If you don't, there are some situations we might want to avoid, and it's best to communicate about that from the start!

Skip questions if you like. If you come in late feel free to answer out of order. Feel free to answer in character or all-in-one as a player. Questions or conversations about answers are welcome.

Future and potential characters are welcome and encouraged, as this is partially meant to help develop pup voices.


Day 1: If you were stranded on a desert island, what kind of sandwich would you want?

Day 2: What's your patronus/daemon? Or, if you prefer, if you were an animal, what animal would you be?

Day 3: Night in or night out? Presented without further comment or instruction!

Day 4: What's your jam? Musically or otherwise, karaoke or not... however you choose to take the question. You jam, tell me about it!

Day 5: What's up with your face/hair? Anything interesting or meaningful? Does your favorite feature live there? Love it, hate it, it's just that weird stuff all over your skull?

Day 6: Think of the last person who said 'I love you', do you think they meant it? No need for context or explanation unless you want.

Day 7: Do you believe in life after love? You could also answer 'do you believe in love' full stop, which is a better question. Free-form it, pontificate, or just curse my name.

About this time last year, at a game many of us are familiar with, we did a daily dumb question meme. Because it really helped me with character development stuff and thinky thoughts, I've been meaning to answer the questions with my LC characters as well.

But I thought, as long as I was doing it, I should ask if others would be interested in having the questions posted in this comm for any/everyone to join in. It's about a month's worth of questions posting one a day. People could answer the ones they want, skip the ones they don't. And if you're not around the day one goes up, you could always answer later. Most of the questions are trivial sort of things, but they can get at details that help flesh out characters but may not come up in threads (or in canon). And one question a day doesn't take too long to answer, even for those with a bunch of characters. (It can also help if you're considering apping someone new and want to get a better feel for them.)

Is this something you'd be interested in doing?
