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? 
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?

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.

Subbing in again!

Has your character ever been stuck with a job or a task that they were really, really not suited for? How did it go? Was it a long-term thing, the whole premise of the character, or just a one-off WHY DID YOU ASK ME TO BABYSIT?!?! situation? .....Did they survive?

[personal profile] inlovewithwords  had so much fun with subbing last Friday they asked if they could pick up a DE day on a regular basis. Maru agreed to pass on her Tuesday, so welcome to our new DE Overlord Mod.

What’s a subject where once someone gets your character started, they’ll talk your ear off? What’s something they will almost never talk about without a lot of work?
12 July 2017 @ 12:01 pm
 What is medicine like in your character's world, and what is their attitude to it and its practitioners?
11 July 2017 @ 12:04 pm
Talk a little about the injuries your character sustained, and the scars they have.

Subbing in while our usual Monday poster does some Real Life:

Go on, boast a little, what’s a bit of RP that sticks in your memory as a character highlight? And throw around some compliments, too--what are some plot arcs or character moments that you loved in someone else's RP?

Good morning!

This week I listened to nothing but Arcade Fire, I just couldn't get enough of them. Which has me pondering whether our pup's have occasional bursts of obsession like that and if so, what do they obsess over?

Your character is starting a band. Yes, even if it’s something they would never do. What’s it called, what kind of music do they play, what does your character do in it?

 What new things has your character learned in Milliways?
03 July 2017 @ 05:22 am
 And here's another week. May it be a good one for you. 

What are some of your favorite physical features of Milliways? Or how about ones you liked but that didn't make it to the shift to DW?

 In honor of a certain canon's 20th anniversary, let's sort our pups in the classic Hogwarts houses. 

And for those we've done this too many times before, is there another house you could make an argument to sort your pup into instead?
What questions do you really really wish canon answered--or hope it will answer--about your characters?

What are your characters scared of? "Nothing" is not a helpful answer, as there is always a bigger fish.
27 June 2017 @ 12:03 pm
 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.
26 June 2017 @ 05:34 am
 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.
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?
