I'm working on a plot for Sahaal that would involve him looking in the Bar's library for some intel he needs at the moment. I've been planning to do this part of the plot as a short story, but I've got a bit of a problem. There doesn't seem to be an actual description for the library anywhere that I can find.

Now, I know this is Milliways, and it probably changes d├ęcor every second Friday, but I was hoping that there was something I could build from. If anything's out there, or if you have an idea about its appearance, I'd really appreciated if you'd clue me in.

Which persons your character has met in Milliways do they admire most? They might be either heroes from tales or legends, or people whose work they admire for personal reasons. For example, the hero that gets the most awe from Teja is Weyland (despite being fully aware of the man's highly problematic personality) because he's the god of smiths from Teja's people's pantheon; for Father Harman, it's Rae, because she deals with vampires all by herself in a desperately dark crapsack world, with none of the resources he has.

What does your character think of birthdays? Do they celebrate? Do they treat others' differently from their own?

Good morning and welcome to another week.

Your character has found themselves at a party, whether intentional or not. How do they feel about this? Do they have a good time or do they have to fake it for propriety's sake? Do they stay to close the party or clear out as soon as they can?

Hallo Milliways!

How would YOU like an update?

Apps haven't been processed yet, I've got a project for school that's been taking priority. 
Soon. I hope to have them good and done by mid-week. 

As you may, or maynot, have noticed folks have been using Subject Headings for plots.
Thank you so much for doing this!
We figure this is the best way for people to Yes And, rather than expecting people to Opt Out. 
(I think going forward we might also consider having plot creators make a unified Plot Name for said plot, so subject headings are a bit more formalized. But that's because I'm a bucket of fuss.)

Tag Stuff is still ongoing, just slowly. 
Ever so slowly.

There'll be a thread below if there are any questions or concerns that haven't been addressed.
As always the mod email account is also available...though, because of aforementioned Real Life responses are a touch slower.


This week we have a fresh assortment of:


First to claim, is first to 'tend.
Have at!

 Hello and welcome to another Friday!

If your pup were to create a game show, what might it be like?

ETA: Also, something to give you a chuckle for the day...Unused Captain America PSAs from Spider-Man Homecoming.

Hello friends! I'm so sorry I've dropped off the face of the earth a bit-- I've been moving and settling into new circumstances and all that sort of chaos. I'm going to try to be around a bit more, but also if anyone ever has need of me or one of mine, please don't hesitate to reach out!

Hullo hullo!

Tomorrow--Friday the 13th, because more bad luck is just what this year needs--the Translation Failure Plot will kick off. The effects will be a patchy disruption to Milliways' translation field: in some parts of the bar translation could be off completely, or result in garbled run-through-google-translate-too-many-times nonsense, or could be entirely unaffected.

A mod has requested that people please put "translation fail" or something along those lines in the subject line of posts, so that people can choose to participate or not in the event.

Hit me up with any questions!

IN HONOR OF...uh...me hardly being around lately because I've hit a really busy spell in my life...

What five things should someone place at the points of a pentagram to summon your character?

Bonus round: is there something they should chant while doing so? (Or something they should just shout into a crowd to make your character come running?)
12 October 2017 @ 12:41 am
I hope everyone's having a good week. I know I'm looking forward to the translation plot starting on Friday.

Hera and Kanan are wonderful and awkward.

Yamato and his friends get a little hope while the baby Digimons are so cute.

Claire and Matt continue to be wonderful.

This ended up being OOM heavy so please share threads and EPs you're loving.

Does anyone have any ideas for what LARPing in Milliways would be like/how it would work? Enzo is interested in running a kiddie LARP for any interested Millikinder. Strictly fun stuff, nothing you would not want to inflict on a small child, but there have to be some magical features or what's the point?

(Adults will be welcome to participate as well, although likely by way of running the game, playing the monsters, etc.)

Which probably seems weird, because it didn't seem like I was gone at all. In fact, I've been on vacation all month, staying at my brother's and taking care of his zoo while he was in Hawaii. Probably a weird kind of vacation, but it's the first I've taken in over two years, and it was fun.

But I'm home, and work has piled up while I was gone. I'm going to be terribly slow while I get caught up and take care of a project my network wants. I'll mostly be around in the evenings, and I'll try to wrap up any current threads I have going on then.

 After seeing Wedge Antilles fanboy both Baze and Cassian in last week's DE: who are your characters' heroes they would react to in that way (even if just internally).
10 October 2017 @ 11:37 am
When is "coming of age" for your character? Is it marked culturally, whether by celebration or solemnity or specific ritual? What significance did it hold for them personally?
09 October 2017 @ 07:42 am
A great suggestion from [personal profile] i_am_your_host :

Does your pup live with someone or by themselves? What do they prefer? What kind of roommate are they? If they live alone, what would they probably be like as a roommate?
08 October 2017 @ 05:03 pm
It's Sunday again, Milliways, and you know what that means...

it means Jake knows what's the what )

 So yesterday we talked about small judgements. Today let's talk about small things that annoy your pup that they put up with anyway. I'm thinking things like roommates who leave the cap off the toothpaste, pull the top of the garbage bag out when it's full but don't take the trash out, that sort of thing
05 October 2017 @ 12:26 pm
Sorry for the delay on this.

Tess returns to Milliways.

Lots of True Blood canon OOMs, its always great to see the next steps in a canon.

Will starts to slowly move forward.

Now please share what you're loving and finishing as I disappear into fact checking.

IN HONOR OF going two (2) years without repeating any of my DE prompts (so far as I know) I am bringing back my very first DE prompt:

What is your character judgmental about? Not necessarily the Big Bad things like murder, theft, and societal injustice: the smaller things like what beer someone likes or how they dress to go out to dinner or whether they're good at sports. Do they try not to be judgmental or are they totally fine with it?

Hi all,

Quick note to apologise for the lack of Life Support last month and the general slowing of my tagging speed.

I have some ongoing medical things going on right now - not serious as such, but consuming of my energy, which means I have less time to RP. I'm not sure how long this will last. But I am still here, as usual, pootling around in the background, and can be contacted by all the usual channels if needed.
