Today has been the worst anxiety/ocd-behaviors day I have had in fuck knows how long, it's been a while, it's really bad today, I am massively not okay, and this after yesterday of also not being okay. But! I made it to work. I didn't get much done at work, but I made it to work and sometimes that's all the triumph you can get out of a day. (plus friday's unexpectedly-all-day-meeting was enough of a nightmare that it totally counts for extra points)

I really kinda need this country to stop being in a constitutional crisis, it's not helping my brainproblems.

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.

Because it's not a fandom until there's a Highlander crossover...

This is 17776, aka something with some kinda cool space stuff, and absolutely terrible worldbuilding I cannot even express. I was mostly bored by the football stuff, although there were occassional interesting bits to me. But oh my god, guys, the worldbuilding, it burns us, precious. Hey, authors, just a thought, but when you have to lampshade twice how bad the worldbuilding is, maybe you should possibly just revise the thing instead?

Anyway, here's a drabble.

So I was trying to work out how to make a crack crossover work and I realized I am very not-clear on a vital aspect of The Martian canon. That is: how many surface-to-orbit vessels are there, and how do they work?

The Ares crew took some kind of lander down to the planet, which remained there(?), since Mark uses the jet fuel to make water, yes? He's all happy that Martinez piloted them so well, there's still stuff left. And they took the MAV back to the Hermes, and the MAV had been pre-sent so it could charge itself.

However, the original lander is not good enough for getting back to orbit, since Mark has to go to the other MAV. But is he going there since that would be a good place to meet up with the next mission, or is he going there because there'd be no way for him to go up from his site to meet up with the rest of the new crew on the Hermes? Can the original lander not "charge itself" like the MAVs can? I do not remember if they took it apart to make the Habs/the rovers/anything else, so it's possible it's not even in the correct form to be useful for that purpose anymore.

Anyone remember this off hand? Am I doomed to a deep-dive canon review over this? Basically what I want to be able to do is have Ares 3 go up to the Hermes, wait a couple days, then take the MAV, or something else, down to the planet again.

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.
