 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.

(If you have ideas for dumb questions, please send them to me in email/Slack/etc. and I will add them to my list!)

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!

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?
yves: (Default)
[personal profile] yves
If you hang out in slack chat you may have known this was coming. I have a new (kinda) pup who I will be debuting a bit later tonight. I say kinda-new only because I'm recycling a name and a journal. If you were here at the start of LC you'll know Yves was an elf I played, who was a reboot of another OC from another game. To make things terribly confusing, this Yves is not at all a reboot of that pup. He's not related to him at all, other than a shared name and PB.

So who is Yves? Yves is a doctor, a mysterious Unseelie Fae prince with no apparent current ties to the unseelie court. He shares the name and physical attributes of a killer from a somewhat obscure fae myth, has hair that seems to change colour on a whim, and comes off almost bipolar in temperament. Charming, witty, and rakish one moment, cold, unkind, and perhaps even cruel the next.

He is going to be a temp pup, but how long he will be a temp for, I'm not yet sure. I would, however, like to play him as a normal pup. It's important to me that he builds friendships and solid ties to the community before his story starts to unravel.

I also plan to slowly fill his journal with things related to the myth surrounding him. Sometimes I will write full short stories, sometimes synopses of similar fictional myths, or even snippets of research and entries from his own journal from a very long time ago. These can be used as research materials by any pups who would be interested in that sort of thing.

He may reveal to your pup that he's the fae from the myth. Your pup is free to believe he may be the fae from the myth, even to ask him- Whether or not he is honest with them will likely depend on which Yves they are talking to, and the kind of relationship they've formed.

If you have questions or comments, feel free to poke me on slack or leave them here.

Hello everyone,

Here is Remus Lupin, with a lot of tea and tweed. Basically, he's been yanked out of his own timeline at the age of 19 and is dealing with the whole business of recognising all his friends are dead and he's totally isolated from everything he knows by puttering about London and Not Thinking About It.

As a werewolf, he's got enhanced reflexes, sense and strength, although after a transformation he's a tired, haggard thing.

His wiki page is here if you want more information on him is here - it should explain his personality, rough canon history, abilities and the like.

I've also set up a discussion post in his journal here for other magical types setting out the basics of his canon with a few ideas of how all the magical world's and history and types could be integrated. I hope over the next few days to discuss that with the relevant players so things can be settled before I EP him. :)

Hi!

James here and lately I've been thinking of taking up a second pup in LC. I suck at choosing, and I have some options, so I thought I would list the possibles below and other players might have some Views as to who they'd like to see in the game. I'd identified the pros and cons as I see them as well.

* John Watson, BBC Sherlock. (Pros: sassy, trained medical professional, also capable with firearms. Cons: I'm not actually a huge Johnlock shipper so that would probably disappoint most people?)
* Moriarty, BBC Sherlock. (Pros: totally batshit insane, so that's always fun. Cons: totally batshit insane, so that's always hard to consistently play.)
* C, Spectre. (Pros: slimy professional public servant; could be interesting to give an 'in' to governmental power in the broader world of the game. Also interesting to play him as someone who genuinely believes in what he does. Cons: Would spoil film; would spend a fair amount of time in bars by himself droning on about Bond and his fucking posse.)
* Rory Williams, Doctor Who. (Pros: grumpy, snarky, voice of reason character, trained nurse. Lots of opportunity to be '....you do know that's a /very/ stupid idea, don't you?' at people. Cons: A bit mopey without Amy and Eleven.)
* Remus Lupin, Harry Potter - AU'd 19 year old version, from a dead game. (Pros: possible integration of HP canon with game canon, magic, werewolf BAMF, also cuddly. Cons: possible integration of HP canon with game canon makes my head hurt.)

What does anyone think?

Top level your pup and other players will reply to you with the names of three other pups. Your pup must then decide who they'd shag, who they'd marry, and who they'd delete from their life (or at least their phone contacts. :P

All actions are, of course, ooc. 

Have fun!
melehan: (Default)
[personal profile] melehan
Hello! :D This is Lucy, bringing in another pup. I have here a dude named Melehan from the Arthurian legend (based on dusty 100s of year old texts, not any modern adaptions, cause I'm a nerd). It's modern day AU of course. You can read more on his wiki page here. The most important bit to know is this:

Note on AUness/important things/cliffnotes version: In this game King Arthur has been AU’ed as a prominent cabinet member. Your pups have likely heard of Arthur Pendragon/seen him on TV/in the newspaper/etc. Arthur has a number of sisters, including one named Morgause. Morgause is married to Lot (some important rich guy from Orkney, idk) and it’s widely rumoured that her youngest son, Mordred, was not fathered by her husband but by her very own brother Arthur.

Mordred is Melehan’s father. So basically, Melehan is rumoured to be the son of a really inbred guy :D His “great uncle” Arthur is rumoured to actually be his grandfather. The whole thing caused a pretty big scandal (which is pretty much forever ongoing), so feel free to have your pup recognise Melehan from photos in trashy tabloids or whatever. It’s definitely likely that they’d recognise his name.

I’m assuming Mordred is also in politics but keeping it kinda vague because hey, maybe somebody wants to app him? :D

Also relevant: in many versions of the legends Mordred and his brother Agravain go around murdering people (often together). Once again I’m keeping things vague (because I’m lazy also somebody please app them) but it’s fair to assume that there’s also a lot of rumours about the family being involved in some nasty and shady stuff, but of course nothing’s ever been proven. Essentially: THIS IS A VERY SCANDALOUS FAMILY. Mordred is a walking scandal.

Also, since Melehan needed a last name and there aren’t a lot of those floating around in the legends, I’m assuming Morgause Pendragon kept her maiden name when she got married and insisted that it be passed on to all her children because idk she’s a feminist or something. So Mordred and Melehan too are Pendragons. (And of course this totally helps fuel the rumours about Arthur being Mordred’s father).


I hope that all makes sense? >.> Feel free to ask questions if you're confused about anything. Arthurian family trees are needlessly complicated and idk if my explanations are enough for it make sense to the non-nerdy uninitiated, lol. Mostly you just need to know that a) Melehan is inbred and everybody and their cat knows about it, and b) King Arthur is AU'd as a member of the British cabinet (sound familiar? LOL)

Oh yeah, and since there are other pups in the game from political scandal families and other relatives of cabinet members and ridiculously rich people and stuff, if you think Mel and one of your pups would likely know each other already, I am quite open to that and you should hmu :D

I'm going to be posting his debut in a bit so you should all keep an eye out and prepare yourselves.

If you're a slack chatter (and omg if you're not, you need to come join in! We're fun, I swear!), you probably witnessed a bunch of us talking about how it could be fun to do something social media-esc with our pups. This led to a chat about maybe starting a 2nd slack team to play ic in, or a channel, or a weekly OOC post.

In an effort to make as many people happy as we can, we're going to try both, one at a time. This week you get this post, a meme style ooc post where your pup can tag in with a social media-esc top level, and other pups can tag in and interact with them. This can be anything you like. A tweet. A gif from Tumblr... You could even have a top level that simply stands in for your pup's cell phone, where other players can text you. Your pup can have as many top levels as they like. So feel free to post a 'mobile' top level and a tweet, and a FB post, ect. Just make sure they are separate top levels so you don't get confused!

Next week we're going to make a temp channel(s?) in slack and try that instead. Then, when it's done, we'll all talk about what we found the most fun.

So... Tweet your hearts out. Let's get social! :D

So tomorrow I plan to début Danny Holt from the BBC mini series London Spy. However, since it only ended tonight, I don't want to spoil anyone. I am bringing him from around episode 3, so if you've seen up to that point, you're golden. However, if you haven't yet watched and intend to, and don't want to be spoiled, there's a few things I'm going to try and do to help.

1: The majority of Danny's début will be under a cut. Unless you have your journal set to expand cut posts, you should not see anything. I can not do anything about it if you have your journal set to auto open cut posts, so if you don't want to be spoiled, make sure you haven't ticked that little box. I don't believe it's a default option, so unless you've made that change it shouldn't be a problem. however, if you're spoiler sensitive, I'd suggest you double-check. <3

2: Danny as a character is a walking spoiler, so if you do not want to be tagged by him, let me know in this post and I wont tag you until you're ready to play with him.

That said, I hope the people who have watched/don't intend to watch/don't care about spoilers tag away, as I'm really excited to play him and really think he will fit in well here. :D

If you have watched, please don't post spoilers in the comments. ;)
