sup homies

so uh

1) school is extremely intense and overwhelming currently with way too much homework so that's pretty not fun. also i'm in a practicum this quarter and it isn't well organized so that just makes everything more stressful, but i'm hoping soon things maybe possibly start to balance out??

2) i'm addicted to playing overwatch

3) my boyfriend of three years and i sortaaaa might have broken up?? idk things are weird and confusing and we haven't spoken in a week and everything is very uncertain and odd and strange. a few people know already and have been supporting me, but between all the things going on its been hard for me to pop on and really say a lot!

this is in no way an absence- just an explanation as to why things might be moving slowly on my end. my muse is slowly coming back, but romantic things are still a little hard to write so those might take more time? just while i'm still sorting everything out and trying to exist and all that stuff.

love you guys <3

hi guys

lots of you have probably heard about my dog being sick for a while now, since like december, but now he is doing really bad. he can't stand on his own anymore and he doesn't eat and yeah. my parents called me last night and they're putting him down tomorrow

idk i'm not really a dog person but he's been in my life for like 10 years or something so he is v important to me now and i'm super upset about this

i might throw myself into posting or i might just not talk in the box or something i'm not sure really most of the time right now i'm just trying not to cry but i just don't have the energy to do a lot of things until who knows

ilu all

MOVIES:
    Akira (1988) - R - This is a Japanese animated movie, considered to by one of the best animated and science fiction movies of all time, so I'd say it's definitely worth it! The movie takes place in Neo Tokyo in the year 2019, 31 years after World War III. There are psychic children and so much craziness and it's just a beautiful story that is so well done! <p>
    Trainspotting (1996) R - Another weird one, this is a black comedy about a group of heroin addicts as they get into all sorts of weird stuff, both legal and not. The sequel just came out in the UK and will be out in the US in March! It's got Ewan McGreggor, and Robert Carlyle, and even the voice of Merida! So yes, it's amazing, and very gross. Be warned.<p>
    Princess Mononoke (1997) PG-13 - Is anyone even like, close to surprised about this one? I know a whole lot of people on site haven't seen this yet we should have a watch party but it is one of my favorite movies to have ever existed! It's about a young prince with a curse who goes to see what caused his curse- and to see if he can do anything to stop it. The film is very environmental/nature-y, and so so perfect.<p>
    It Follows (2014) R - A horror film about a young woman who has sex and something starts to get real haunting real fast. Very freaky, but a really amazing concept! The cast is great and the story is cool and I'd recommend it to anyone!<p>
    Trollhunter (2010) PG-13 - This is literally one of the best films ever created. It's a found footage subbed film, and it is amazing. A bunch of kids go up into the mountains, and end up learning allll about trolls. Real cool lookin trolls.<p>
    JeruZalem (2015) R - More horror films for all! This one is filmed with google glasses or something similar, so it's literally from someone's POV. A group of friends go to Jerusalem and end up in a situation that really isn't what they expected. Lots of attractive people in this one.<p>
    These Final Hours (2013) UK15 (no US rating) - An Australian apocalyptic thriller about a young man's choices on literally the last day on earth before it gets destroyed. Literally destroyed. Starts as a party... Ends with you sobbing. It's a beautiful film with some really great insights.<p>
    Monsters (2010) R - This is another independent film, this one i about the earth after an alien invasion. Two people are trying to get through a quarantine zone and see some real intense shit. More things to think about.<p>
    The Host (2006) R - Korean film this time! The Host is a hilarious film about a man who runs a little shop on the water and is there the day a monster attacks- and steals a family member away! It's really funny even if a little bit terrifying. The director, I believe, later went on to create Snowpiercer!<p>
    Seeking A Friend for the End of the World (2012) R - This movie gon fuck u up. Kiera Knightly is the young neighbor of Steve Carell, both of whom are alone as the world is coming to an end around them. The pair of them go off on an adventure as they try to figure out just where they want to be when it all comes to the end.<p>
    Like Crazy (2011) PG-13 - This movie also gon mess u up reallll bad. I sob for hours after watching it ngl. Felicity Jones is an exchange student in college who meets the amazing Anton Yelchin (rip ;A;), and falls in love. The entire movie follows their love story as it takes many turns and goes up and down and all around. A very good and real film. Also has a brief moment of JLaw.<p>

<div class="derptitle">plotting</div><br><br>

<div class="rules">
There’s a lot that goes into plotting, and we know that not everyone feels comfortable reaching out, either on site or through a messenger system, to get something started, or sometimes we just can’t figure out how to reply! Here are a few helpful tricks and tips that could help you out in your time of need!<p>
<hr>

You are responsible for your own plotting. Don’t wait for people to come to you - go out and ask for the plots that you want. There is no such thing as being bad at plotting as long as you try - the only way to be bad at plotting is to not do it at all. If you want something, put in the work to get it. <p>
❀ It’s okay to start small. It’s like in A Bug’s Life - one small rock seed can grow an enormous tree. The first posts in a plot can just be putting down foundations (“I think my character would really look up to yours”/”They’re both musicians!”) and don’t need to be super substantial and completely fleshed out - the point of plotting is to work together to build something new between your characters, and some of the biggest and brightest ideas come from humble beginnings. Plus, if you offer a small idea, it’s possible that’ll inspire your plotting partner to come up with something even better to improve on the idea. It’s better to offer a ton of small ideas and see if you can develop them than it is to not offer anything at all.<p>
❀ Speak your mind. If you have an idea for a plot or a ship but you don’t voice it, you can’t assume other players will know about it, nor can you assume that the other player(s) involved will have the same interpretation of the relationship as you do. It’s better to ask and know for sure if you can have that plot than it is to pine over it and lose your chance.<p>
❀ Ask questions. The best way to get a good idea of a character is to ask their player.<p>
❀ "If" statements are your best friend. The only person who can say for sure how a character will act is the person who plays that character. Avoid making incorrect assumptions by offering ideas that start with if - “if your character did this, my character would react with this.”<p>
❀ If you aren’t comfortable with the idea of a plot, it’s okay to say no. You are the master of your character’s destiny, and you get the final say on their whereabouts. Maybe you just don’t want to ship your princess with a minion, or maybe that conflicts with another ship you already have. That’s okay. <p>
However, if you do say no to a plot, try to offer some alternative. Don’t just shoot down plots point blank - that’s not only not constructive at all, but it’s discouraging to other players,both in that they may not feel confident in offering their ideas elsewhere and they may not want to approach you again, even when they do have more substantial ideas. Try to find some aspect of the plot they offered that does work and go from there. Including your reasoning as to why a plot won’t work can also help bring some ideas to light; use the moment to educate the other player on your character and why you’ve refused, rather than simply turning them away.<p>
Learn to accept no graciously. It sucks to have your ideas turned down, but if the other player doesn’t think the plot will work, then make adjustments. Listen. Do not try to force your idea because it works for you and you like it the way it is. Role playing is collaborative, so take the opportunity to learn about the other player’s interpretation of their character and use that to inform future plot offers. There’s nothing more frustrating than having someone else steamroll you and your characters in their pursuit of a plot. Be mindful of your fellow members.<p>
❀ If you’ve got a ship or a plot and it seems like you’re the one throwing out most of the ideas and being the most enthusiastic about it, check in with your partner. Ask them if they’re still interested in the plot. Ask if you’re overwhelming them. Be aware of your plotting partner and respectful of their feelings, and be ready to reevaluate the plot if it’s not working out for both of you.<p>
❀ There’s over 200 (wow!) characters onsite. If a plot doesn’t work for one pairing, look around and try to find another character it could work with, and if you really can’t find someone to play it out with you, you can always create a want ad for it.<p>
You do not need to plot with every character a member plays. Some people onsite have a lot of characters and it can be overwhelming to look at their plotters, but don’t let that get in the way of potential plots. Pick out the ideas that come to mind first and offer those, or choose one or two characters from their plotter to plot with first and come back for the rest later. <p>
❀ Similarly, don’t be afraid of the plotters. They don’t bite, and neither do we. They’re there to facilitate communication between players and start conversations. You are not obligated to plan out all your ideas in plotters (messengers are faster and a lot less formal) but posting in them is a good way to get the ball rolling and let another player know that you have an idea you’d like to talk about.<p>
❀ Try to keep your plotter updated, both in the initial post with all your characters on it and in the replies to it. It’s easier to plot with a character if the information you’re given is current. That being said, everyone gets busy sometimes, and everyone forgets to update. If you’ve been waiting on a reply on a plotter for a while, ask about it - maybe you can discuss it over messenger to get things rolling faster.<p>
❀ Take advantage of the alert system. Link in other people who might be interested in a plot - it gives everyone an opportunity to expand their plotting and be involved in something awesome.<p>
❀ If you’re having a really hard time getting the plots you want, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Admins and mods are happy to help you locate some people that would work with your character. That being said, remember that we are not here to do your plotting for you - it’s still your job to propose ideas to these other members. We can’t help you if you aren’t willing to do the work to get your character plotted out.<p>
❀ Have fun with your plots! They don’t all have to be romantic, or friendly, or even tear your heart out sad. You can plot coworkers, or worst enemies, or even ‘that annoying guy with the dog down the street!’. No single kind of relationship is more important than others - we’re building a world here, and it takes all kinds!<br>
<hr>
Questions to get you started:<br>
What kinds of places do both characters visit?<br>
Is there something my character likes that your character hates?<br>
Did they come from similar backgrounds?<br>
Do their jobs overlap?<br>
Does my character have similar powers to your character?<br>

Looking for a new character but need something to get you started? Have an idea for a character that for some reason isn't fleshing itself out but you'd love to see on-site? Or maybe there's a muse that you tried but didn't work out for you? No matter the idea - be it a job, a power or ability, or who knows what else - this is the place to set it free to inspire others!<p>

Ideas in this thread are free for anyone to take. Posting your ideas is granting permission for others to use them in character creation and interpret them as they may, even if it doesn't align exactly with your original thoughts. These ideas also are not required by any means - they're simply little things to consider. If you've posted an idea here and you decide to make the character after all, you're always welcome to come back to it!<p>

This thread is for canon characters only! And canons who are not yet taken! Please refer to the canon list before posting your ideas. <p>
