Because I'm heading out for vacation, let's just get an early jump on next week's stuff, just in case.

 What do your charries regularly do about their hair / beard / clothes / shoes / general neatness of appearance?

I have recently found that this is the main visual distinction between my two Mads!faces, Hannibal and Galen.

Okay, my mental health is slightly in the toilet right now (sorry, everyone whose threads I've dropped! I promise to pick them back up ASAP), but I would be remiss in my nerdly duties if I didn't mark today.

So...

HAPPY TWENTY YEARS OF HARRY POTTER, EVERYBODY!


Here's to twenty years of magic and silliness; of 'rocks fall, everyone cries' and Berty Bott's Every-Flavour Beans; of the Rotfang Conspiracy and the Order of the Phoenix; of badass older ladies and brilliant girls; of meddling old men and stroppy Gryffindor boys.

And here's to twenty more.

 Tell us about someone who was influential to your character's development. 

ETA: This can be a person within canon, Milliways, meta as the player, or whatever inspires. Originally I had meant within canon and character POV, but run with it as you will.

If you find Discord unusually slow tonight, someone on Twitch accidentally DDOS'ed their servers. They're working on trying to kill the server they created, but with several million people flooding into it, they can't even get to the button to delete it.

Sorry, y'all, I got nothing. You know the drill.

Tell us about your week in roleplay!

So heyyyy, Cassidy and Cassian (bromance names now being accepted) were in the infirmary and stole some drugs but they left notes for the staff. Only Cassian signed his note. Any resulting fallout is welcome. Sorry, Guppy & Co.!
 
 
Okay, here goes my first daily entertainment post. Since no one did one yesterday, I guess I ought to make sure we don't miss two in a row.

If your pup could have any theme song, what would it be?

Despite Baze's initial protests, he and Chirrut have erected a sign warning bar patrons in several languages that the sun burns. The sign is located on the border between the lake and the beach.

The languages are as follows, courtesy of Google Translate Bar's help:
Aurebesh (Galactic Basic): Beware of burning from the merciless sun
English: Beware the burn of merciless sun
French: Méfiez-vous de brûler du soleil impitoyable (Beware of burning the ruthless sun)
Russian: Остерегайтесь ожогов от беспощадного солнца (Beware of burns from the merciless sun)
Japanese: 無慈悲な太陽から燃えることに注意してください (Please be aware that it burns from a ruthless sun)
German: Hütet euch vor dem Brennen von der gnadenlosen Sonne (Beware of burning from the merciless sun)

ETA: Maru has kindly provided a more accurate German translation: "Hütet euch for der Glut der gnadenlosen Sonne," which translates via Google as "Beware of the glow of the merciless sun."

ETA2: Check out Anna's graphic for translations in Wraith, Alteran, and Latin!
 
 
Is there some bit of canon or plot that you are ignoring as it is a stupid-assed decision?

Bonus question: I recently noticed my profile for a pup was woefully out of date and needed reworking. Post in with your pups and we'll review their profile and offer any suggestions we might have.

What would your character as a child--say, age 10--think about what's going on with your character nowadays? What would your character five years ago think if they could look ahead to the present?

I hope that the heat isn't being too difficult for anyone, heat and humidity are awful.

Pam is angry, Baze and others don't help.

Hera and Kanan try to get ready for what might happen next.

Eden tries to improve.

Now what are you loving and finishing. I had a wonderful family visit but I'm glad to be back.

 Sorry for the lack of DE yesterday: I was in ITIL class when the alarm went off, and just forgot afterwards because, hoo boy, ITIL.

So, DE for today inspired by last post on the comm: your character gets attacked by a) an axe crazy, b) an Internet troll c) some religious or political loony taking umbrage at them in RL. What do they do?

I bet y'all have missed the chance to hit each other in a Security approved environment haven't you? I know I've missed watching it. It's been, what, a few months since an official fight club? Well, RL came up and kind of mugged me, which ruined any thread slots I had available.

But fear not, there is another!

Sahaal ([personal profile] exiled_heir_of_the_eighth)'s mun was asking about fight club and what when into running it, and has decided it is a thing they can help with! Accolades and cheers for them! Rules might shift a little in wording as a different character writes the rules, but the one rule of fight club (both OOC and IC) stays the same, Security is the only party that can forcibly break up a fight. Characters can try words and reason, but only an official Security pup can step in to break up the fight is the sparring turns ugly.

So dust off your gloves, oil your swords, and sharpen your spears, fight club should be back soon.

Welcome to another week. May you crush your to do lists and have fun!

For today's topic...it's been hot, like stuck to the vinyl, itchy skin, burning eyes hot. Or your pup just got through with a big fight with someone they care about. Or they know they need to have a talk with said person, but are dreading a fight. Or there is a thing that needs doing but they can't do it quite yet...either way, whatever the cause, your pup is feeling anxious and stressed. What do they do to try and calm themselves?

Hey, has anyone else been getting this error message sometimes when trying to load the main bar community?

error message

I've been periodically getting it for a few months now. Sometimes refreshing will make the community actually load, and sometimes it won't. Is this just a problem on my end, and if so, anyone have ideas on how to fix it?
