The Snark and Bark RPG is a continuation of certain characters and their story lines that originated with the Leaky RPG on September 10, 2004, and ran through the first year of that game. Snark and Bark began on August 27, 2005, and the game is currently active with a small but enthusiastic cast. Due to the issues on LJ that developed in summer, 2007, we have relocated to IJ.
The game here picks up where the LJ version leaves off. This is not a new or separate game but a continuation of the LJ Snark and Bark RPG.
The game website is here.
An incomplete archive of the first year of game play is here.
If you're interested in interacting with other fans (and sometimes the characters), seeing fan art and fanfiction based on the game, discussing the action, and keeping up with game-related announcements, you can join our watchers' community: snark_watch or you can follow the LJ syndicated feed here, although comments made there will not be answered because it's just a feed, not the actual, active community.
This RPG is canon-compliant only up to OotP; we haven't incorporated major canon events from either HBP or DH.
All game activity occurs in the Snark and Bark community, and it's played out in "soap opera time" rather than real time. As with soap operas, concrete dates are rarely given other than holidays or other special occasions, and the passage of time is flexible and fluid, including child growth. The game is set approximately five years in the past (it's currently 2002 in game time), but to maintain a slower, more relaxed pace for the players, we don't try to adhere to real time. The game is written in third person, past tense, and play varies from complete scenes being posted at once to scenes being played out in comments.
This is not a heavily canon-based RPG; it's more like a crack!fic at times with liberal mixtures of both comedy and angst (and smut, which means anyone under 18 shouldn't be reading it). There are both het and slash relationships, and there are various kinky elements, including cross-dressing and past plotlines/scenes involving mpreg and incest over the course of the game.
All RP scenes are both tagged and included in the community memories; the memories are arranged chronologically and by character.
