 How lucky is your character?  And what type of luck do they have? Do they win every giveaway they enter? Or does it show up when they really need it, that last minute save kind of thing?

 For some strange reason, your pup has been granted a title or an epithet. What is it or do they have more than one? Feel free to draw from Milliways canon as well as source canon for this. 

ETA: Feel free to have fun with making up titles if none occur in canon.

What does your character get competitive about? How intense does it get? Is it super serious, can they let it go at the end of the day?

What do your character and their world think of dreams, portents, visions, signs and the like?

 Based on a comment I saw Eric make in crack chat (bet you didn't think I was listening :p) :

What are some of your pup's mannerisms? How do they walk or talk? How about body language or hand gestures?

At the risk of enabling, what are some characters you'd love to have as NPCs to do OOM with? Think of this as a chance to put out a casting call for the pup from your canon that you really wish you had to thread with. I'm thinking of this as more outside of Milliways (OOM for those who've wondered about the anacronym), canon write up help, rather than getting a canonmate. But you never know. 

Alternately, are there any characters you have journals for that have their canon represented in bar and you'd love to help out? I know I've a few that sit as I know their voice is fun but not long term.

How does your character--if they have to work in or manage a group--handle having someone on their team that they'd really rather not?

How is your character with housework and tidying up? Where do they fall on the scale from neat freak to 'living in a bomb crater'? What kind of housework do they always do, even if they are tired, drunk or in a hurry?

 I have no brain from a long weekend of packing and moving. I know there's great suggestions in the DE box, but I'm feeling the need for some groves. 

What songs have got you moving in your seat? Any new tunes you've discovered? Old ones you stumbled across? Share with the comm.

Yay, it's Friday!

What part of yourself have you brought to your characters?

Ever wanted to throw a pup into an adventure in the Labyrinth or the Library or the woods, but haven't been sure what to have them do? Let's generate a bunch of possible random encounters/quests/puzzles for people to run into!



...alternative DE that I provide because AU week just keeps making me giggle like a twelve-year-old about it, there's always the good ol' classic NSFW meme about what your character would or would not do with a clone of themself.

 So on a scale of Vader force choking a captain who's failed him too many times, to Lews Therin raising a mountain to bury his grief and break the world, how is your pup for dramatic gestures?

Welcome back to another week. I hope yours is a good one. 

What is a simple pleasure your pup enjoys? I'm thinking thing like getting into bed when the sheets have been freshly changed, curling up with a blanket fresh from the dryer, or a hot towel to wipe your face with. That sort of thing. 

And what about you?

At the tail end of AU week, I'm stealing an idea fractalmuses shared with me on Discord. 

If your pup were to be in a Star Wars AU, what would their role be? Or what if it were a Star Trek AU instead? Would they be in Starfleet? If so, what branch: command, operations, or sciences?

What are some of your character’s cheesiest--for lack of a better word--canon lines? Cheesy can be a lot of things, good and bad--bombastic, corny, clunky, earnest, facile, overwritten, overacted, over-the-top in one way or another… Does it make you cringe every time, or do you kind of love it?

(NB: I’m asking as someone whose character actually says “There is no stopping it! There is only…...THE WAR.”)
 
 
16 August 2017 @ 12:01 pm
 As it's AU week anyway -- remember the old Hogwarts AU we had on MM back on LJ? Even if not -- who would your character be, what House, student or teacher or other? Death Eater or Dumbledore's Army?

Morning, everyone!

Well, afternoon here... but hopefully it's still morning for the majority of you (work's been mad).

Since we're now hip-deep in AU Week, here's a AU-themed question for you all, in honour of Pokemon Go's recent one-year anniversary:

Congratulations! Your character is a Pokemon trainer. What kind of trainer would they be - a researcher, a gym leader, a healer, a Pokemon breeder, or a travelling fighter? Would they favour a 'type' of Pokemon (fire, water, earth, electric...) or perhaps just those with a certain trait or personality? Would they have a tiny close-knit team of monsters, or would they try to catch 'em all? Would they - gasp - work for Team Rocket?

(With many thanks to Don for letting me steal today's DE!)




Unrelatedly: has anyone else seen Atomic Blonde yet? I saw it last night and now want someone to discuss it with!

Presented by [personal profile] iprotectyou :

Suggest plots that should return to Milliways, or entirely new ones!
 
 
10 August 2017 @ 06:47 am
In honor of me learning that “spin class” is NOT a bunch of people spinning around in circles...what’s something your character is convinced is true that you know they’re really super wrong about? Is it a plotty Dramatic Irony kind of thing, a worldview, just a silly quirk?

In the Star Wars universe, many people have personal autonomous androids for all sorts of tasks, known as droids. They tend to have strong personalities of their own, and a plethora of different uses.

What kind of droid would your character have?
