So, somebody made a livejournal game. Panfandom. Of the SCP. (which is a site I'm and Admin of. Creepy Pasta stuff, go check it out at http://scp-wiki.wikdot.com ))
They're using the characters myself and others created, because they're canon to the SCP. Letting other people app them.
I have NO idea how I feel about this.

Have you ever had the feeling that you're on a tour bus, in the swiss alps,descending a steep, curvy road, when suddenly, the driver clutches his chest, and collapses, his foot against the gas peddle, and you, being the good person you are, lunge for the wheel, only to be crushed between the driver and the 500 pound foreign gentleman who had the same idea as you, only he just had a heart attack, and can't move, and you hit the breaks, somehow, but they're broken, and the gaggle of nuns with the 12 newborns in the back are screaming as a flotilla of penguins hit the windshield but some shrill harpy is grabbing your arm and preventing you from using the wipers because'penguins are endangered' and you try to tell her 'so are we' or some other action quip, but you can't because a killer bee just flew into your mouth and you can't make any noise or he'll sting you, which is when you notice that your pants have fallen around your ankles, you're going commando, and a dutch transvestite midget is attempting to set your pubic hair on fire, while the nuns are busy critquing the exact size and shape of your genitalia which is when you realise that, through the penguins, you can see a 747 piloted by Paris Hilton bearing down on you, towing the wreckage of the titanic behind it, and you also seem to have a persistant cough that just will not go away?
Well, have you?
I have, if you remove everything but the cough.

So, an AU bar has been started up. Where you characters have to be AU. Well, to get my juices flowing, figure out who I want to app, I'm gonna go through my journal list, see what I can come up with. Also, they get to bring a piece of their world with them, so i'll toss that out too. Mainly brainstorming for character ideas.

timsbooks: Tim Hunter who attended Hogwarts! No.
what_stench: Uhm, uh... well... Nope, I got nothing for Sir D.
not_death_eater: What if Voldemort won? Lucius wold be quit ehappy, and coule bring his sitting room with him.
impulsivekid: It'd have to be Either a Bart who never became Kid Flash, or a Bart who never became the Flash. And he's have to bring a river or something with him.
find_the_fourth: .... Yeh, no.
kidzoom: Hmm... Thad who doesn't get killed by the rogues, and actually takes his rightful place as Kid Zoom? Or... ooh, even better, Thad takes his place as Kid Flash. And he could bring a room from the flash museum with him.
whatawonder: Donna Troy, Wonder Woman! After the death of Diana in Fnal Crisis, and the well publicised 'Battle for the Tiara' that followed, only Donna Troy proved worthy to take up the role of Wonder Woman! And she'd bring a temple with her.
lastczarnian: Heh, heh... no Lobo.
poyoubastard: I got nothing on this kid.
notaskrull: What if Hulkling had joined the Runaways?

ka_click: Bun-bun remmained lord of the holidays, muahahahah!
formofman: What if Jason Blood were permenatly stuck in the Demons boy? Oooh, that could be a good one, actually.
mick_o_time: Not even gonna try.
whoismatches: Stephanie Brown, Batgirl! She could bring the cave, even.
mushroomdaddy: Hmmm... I'm really wanting to play Daddy again... maybe he lost his arm int he final confrontation? And of course he'd bring his garden.
lasombre:OOOH! A world where croyd was imprisoned after he went all typhoid, and he's spent the last however many years locked away.
tommyhook: OC, can't use.
brokenboredom: She's already an AU, technically, but...hmm. Vamp willow WITH A SOUL?

kneelb4no1: As uperman who never found his way home from that laternate universe where the kryptonians killed everyone.
gothymcgoth: I've been wanting to do this one for a while, but it's more possible future then AU, but... Warden Captain Carpenter. Sends chills down your spine, hmm? The only thing more fun would be Blackstaff Carpenter. Ooooh.
lalalabia:I think I might get killed for her.
blackcompany1:Croaker, one of the Ladys Taken!

To all my friends in Michigan:
Friday, January 30th, I'm encouraging a gathering of people to meet at City Club, for good times and to celebrate me getting another year older. Anyone up for it?
|A little bit Bocca, A little bit me.
||[26 Dec 2008|02:49am]
First off, Christmas was fantastic. Nothing bad, all good. Gift wise, wound up with socks, pants, comic book boxes, D&D 4th players guide and two bamboo swords, for practicing our moves. My wife gave me crabs. (They are small and stuffed and will hang from my belt at faire.)
Another gift given to me was Boccas new CD, Goin' South. Now, we didn't manage topick it up this past year cause funds were tight, so this gift was a blessing. But the real blessing was a song I have never heard them do before, and that really speaks to me.
I'm through with sittin around at my nine to five job,
In a cubicle next to a guy named bob
This life hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to be.
(Tell me what you want)
I wanna dress in tights without any hassle,
Wanna suit of armor to storm the castle,
Wanna find a fair maiden there,or maybe two or three
(Yeah, so whacha need?)
I need a pair of boots that'll survive the rain,
and a big guitar to play in the lane
Geta couple of sidekicks that can even make fun of me.
(So how you gonna do it?)
I'm gonna trade in everything mundane,
I'll even shave my back and change my name!
Cause we alljust wanna be big ren stars,
Driving horse led carriage instead of cars
yelling out huzzah god save the queen
There's plenty of turkey legs to eat!
and we'll hang out with the hottest wenches,
do a show and fill up all the benches
Every Nerd we can find is gonna wind up there
cause you know that they can't get enough of faire-
Well, hey ey i wanna be a ren star
And i guess it's that chorus there that getsto me. Isn't that really every faire goers dream?Get a show, make it popular, be one of those Ren Stars that you see up on stage? Be someone a little bigger then who you are, be someone, well, popular?
I had a little shock this fall. To me, stage shows are celebrities, you know? I mean, they get paid to act/sing/sword fight/entertain, that's what a celebrity IS. They filmed a Movie at MIRF, and Coco, fearless leader of Bocca, she of the wonerfous voice and huge... talent.. was an extra? It was mental WTF moment, cause here's someone who to me is bigger then life, doing the kind of job I wish I could do, and yet, to these Hollywood folk, she just makes another face in the crowd.
Jen and I are attemtping to put together our own stage show, for those who haven't heard. Privateer swordfighting comedy, under the stage name of Arrr Rated. (Name inspired by the Bonnie Lass) We have a script, (going into second rewrite as we speak), we have most of the props (have a couple of lines on combat ready swords) and most importantly, we have the drive. We have the determination, we have the god damn guts to try. I'm hoping to get something this year, but if this one, then for sure next. Hopefully one of the little faires, mayfaire and derbyshire, someplaceto work out the kinks. I havea modest plan, in that five years after our first show, I want to work a big faire, MIRF if possible, but who knows?
This is soemthing I know we can do, and I know we will be good at. I want to be one of the guys people remember, one of the shows the rennies qoute from. I don't care if to the world at large I'm just another face in the crowd. If i can be the guy that little kids go home and pretend to be, even if it's only for a couple minutes before they forget me? I'll be a happy man. Hey, hey, I wanna be a Ren Star.
|Damn it Evie!
||[15 Dec 2008|01:49pm]
You need to stop trying to seduce me in my dreams. That's the fifth time this month! A guy could get ideas.
|To anyone in michigan!

This friday night, I am going out to the Necto in ann arbor, no matter what. So, anyone who wants to come out for a fun night? Please do so, i miss all of you.

As of today, Jen and will have been married two years.
||[24 Sep 2008|02:48am]
So,i had an accident, and the watermelon cordial is almost completely gone.
Damn it, it wasn't even ready yet
||[17 Sep 2008|01:53pm]
So, I've been invited to co-st a LARP. It's gonna be Hunter: The reckoning, and, like your game, more using the new rules.
I've been asked this by Pete Fras.
|Things Skippy is not allowed to do at Ren Faire

So, I think I'm done with the Teen Titans as a series.
It started after One Year Later, when we lost Bart and Kon. I was all "cool, we've got Kid Devil!" Cause, he used to be a huge fave of mine. And Ravager wasn't half bad. But then they gave us Tim/Cassie, and that was meh. But! They brought back Jericho, and not crazy! Sweet! Awesome character, mute, artisitic and... they stuck him inside Bizarro Superboy and we haven't heard from him again. One throwaway line about 10 issues back, and not even his sister talks about him anymore. Wow. Lame.
And things just... There aren't any really great storylines. They keep fighting versions of titan teams, and it's all Meh. Then, this last book... Wow.
So, Marvin and Wendy, brought in to save cyborg during one year later. Ahaha, good nod to the classic cartoon. And this issue, hey look, Wonder Dog! Who, somehow got on the island, without swimming, but no one questions. Yeh, no paranoia there, thank god. But, Wendy wants to leave, thinks her time is done! Too bad, but, well, she did serve her purpose.
No, wait! Cyborg thinks she should stay! She agrees! And goes to tell Marvin!
Who has just been savagely and brutally murdered by a mutant Wonder Dog. Without tripping any alarms. And Wendy goes for help, but the system sucks, and the heros are too busy training to notice anything wrong. And she gets killed too, horribly. Eaten even.
And Wonder Dog returns to normal, and flies back to his master, who seems to be... Ares?
Okay, that just blows. Why couldn't they have just let the characters leave? No need to kill people.
I just... I don't want this incarnation of the teen titans. They suck. Hell, teenage prep girl Raven is cooler then this.

Ever have one of those dreams where everything feels real, but it;'s not?
Yeah, I had a dream that aubry and evie needed a place to stay again, and I was all like okay, but i can only let you guys stay here for a month, and they had this cool tent thing in the backyard to sleep in, but it was up ons tilts, and then we all went to the arcade at the mall and played some games, before coming hom to crash in one enormous cuddle puddle.
It was kinda cool.
