I know you're all thinking it, so I'll just say it. YAY MOD POST TIME!

Okay, you're probably not thinking that.

Anyway, it's roll call time, people.

You have ten to reply to this role call (so by midnight Monday, August 31), and any character that is not accounted for will be removed on Tuesday, September 1. Those who do not reply will have their characters removed. People who are on hiatus will be immune from this. Remember only hiatuses posted and recognized in the mod journal will be counted.

So if everyone can reply with just a list of their characters, we will know you're still around and your characters will not be cut. Mods will do this too. Please also put your name/online alias in the subject line so we know who you are)

ALSO: Any characterss you add from now until midnight of August 31, please come back and reply to your post (drop a comment if you are new) so that we don't accidentally remove anyone.

Any characters that you decide to drop, please do in the appropriate place

Now, for some notes:

1) Tags.

Please use tags. Please. That's how we keep track of who is and isn't being active, and we try very hard to keep them as up to date as possible. Yes, sometimes we miss someone, but just tell us and we will add them. Seriously, people, I sometimes feel like I’m spending hours and hours just going through posts adding tags to them. I shouldn’t need to do this. If a tag isn't on the list, try typing it in. If a week goes by and your new character doesn’t have a tag then please let me (Ashe!mod) know.

2) In Character=/=Out Of Character.

Please keep characters in character regardless of how you feel about the player. We understand that there are people in the game that you might not like as well as others, but this is not a reason to have your character act out of character. We don't expect you to like everyone, but leave it out of the game or you will get a modly beating...and not in a fun way.

If you do not want to play with a specific player and they pick up your characters brother/sister/cousin/ex-wife/cousin’s roommate’s sister’s ex-lover from Schenectady, then please talk to the player and come to some kind of arrangement. There are many reasons why people might no longer speak to each other, or you could limit it to polite acknowledgement in the random community. Use your imaginations, but please keep your characters In Character. Peter will not suddenly hate Nathan because Suzie and Bobby had a fight. Peter might suddenly hate Nathan because...let's be honest here...Nathan does stupid things. Like leave him in Haiti. Or hunt down special people. These things happpen.

Seriously, your character isn't your mouthpiece to vent your dislike for Steve. Why yes, I am making up a ton of fictitious players today.

3) Housing.

Please remember to request housing as soon as your new character has been accepted. This goes for all characters. Not just ones that live in Torchwood housing. If your people move out of the Torchwood flats, tell the mods about their new arrangements.

If there is a character on the housing list that is no longer being played then please reply to the post and let us know so that we can remove them.

4) Applications and Spoilering. Shut up! It's a word now.

Firstly, just reminding you all that you can only hold or apply for a character from a movie once it's been out for two weeks. There is, of course, an exception for characters from movies based on other mediums, like comic books and television shows. For television characters, wait until they are in three episodes before bringing them in, though we'd prefer you wait longer to get a better feel for the character. In this case, you can hold them after the first episode they are in.

As for spoilers? Don't. Simple as that. Put it behind a cut, people. It's really easy. If spoilers come in the comments, just make a note in the header of the comment that starts spoiling. Spoiling! That's the word! Trust me, you don't want to face the wrath of people who get spoiled. I still have the bruises. It's tragic.

5) Canon puncturing.

Again, don't. With the exceptions of specific fandoms mentioned in canon, nobody knows anyone else is fictional. Like, for example, Thomas Raith wears a 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' t-shirt, in The Dresden Files. In the same vein, Deadpool knows he's fictional, and would probably know he's a character in an RPG. That's cool, if someone plays him. In any case, your character may get fangirled/boyed/hermaphrodited/aliened. Just roll with it, homies...and I am way too white to say things like that. I practically sparkle. I mean...what? don't have to ask permission to canon puncture, but do try to warn in advance.

And that's about it. If you have any questions about anything, please ask me or Jewels or Kira, and please remember again to reply to this with your characters by midnight on August 31. And also remember that we do go by EST, so that's 9 PM on August 31, PST. Thank you.

On behalf of your lords and masters mods, I am Ashe.

Peace out. ♥

Hello party people!

I'm Heather and I recognize quite a few of you already! (Internet. Such a small place) I'm bringing in the lovable-to a select few-Arthur Pendragon. He's princely and aggravating!

If you want to play just hit me up on AIM @ noselfgoogling. Dani, Ryah, you two can't hit me up. It's a rule that I've just made up.

Introductions are in order, I see.

Some of you may know me, I am Ryah - Ashe said that Snape was needed in this sector, and I have to agree, sectors should not be without their own Snape. So here he is, 17, un-Marked, and entirely too mistrustful. I am up for plotting, feel free to IM me at shanklander. Yeay! let the fun begin!

Intros are Fun

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Hey, everyone. *Waves shyly*

Just thought I'd drop a little intro post to kick off my time here. I'm Dani, and that adorable little guy with the epic ears in my icon is Merlin, from the BBC show of the same name. I'm pulling him reluctantly away from the comforts of Camelot and his entire destiny to play with him here for a while.

If anyone wants to play with him or just say hey, my AIM is pegasus1788 and I'm on pretty much every moment of the day, assuming I'm not at work selling glittery clothes to little girls. *Lifeless mun has no life, and works at Justice/Limited Too*

This place seems like a lot of fun, and I can't wait to get started. Hope to talk to some of you soon!

Hi guys.

So my parents are dragging me off to North Carolina and Tennessee starting on Monday. I have no idea how long we're going to be gone, sadly. It's possible we're going to drive around until we start killing each other. Oh roadtrips with your parents when you're almost 30, fun times. Considering we're going to be in the car most of the time, I'll be generally not around except for whenever we stop for the evening (wifi permitting).

If you guys need me, best bet is to email me cause I can at least get those from my phone.

[x-posted liek whoa. sorry]

I'm apologising for the cross-posting right now as I'm sure some of you guys are going to see this more than once.

In any case, I'm going to be on a quasi-hiatus through the 7th of July. The first half of my move this weekend and will be in White Plains from July 3rd-6th. I will be around sporadically this week as well as the weekend, but this is why my tags have been slow lately -- I've been packing and usually collapsing into bed. So much stuff to move. Oi.

So I beg a little more patience and I'm up for plots and postings when I get back -- or even now if you don't mind my being on slow!time. ♥ Thanks for understanding my darlin's.

Hello all. My name is Lizzy and I'm brand spankin' new to the game.

I bring with me, Fiona Glenanne, who is going by Grace O'Malley as an alias here in Cardiff. She's from Burn Notice on USA and coming in mid-season one for those that have seen the show.

I'm easily reachable through AIM boundxkitty or email both of which I'm on constantly. I look forward to threading and plotting with you all.

Suckage. Major.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Hallohallo, my lovelies! I'm sorry I've not been around, much, lately. I had two major things to get done: Finish school, and get a job. Those sort of -- consumed my life, these past few weeks. And once those were done, I got food poisoning. Fml, heh XD

But I'm back on my feet, more or less, and I'll be back on the comm sometime this week :)

I'm enjoying things thus far and it looks like we've got some great new people!

So . . . I'm going to have to take a mini-hiatus of sorts. My personal laptop? Seems to have given up the ghost right now. I came home and turned it on, only to be greeted by that damned blue screen, talking about dumping physical memory to disk. I restarted multiple times, and have gotten it every time. So, I'm taking it in on Monday, as soon as they open, and hope like hell they can save it and save my files, or I will cry.

So, until I find out what's going on and how long it will take to fix, I won't be on as much. I should still be able to be online during the day, for the most part, but as I'm stuck using the parents' desktop, my access is going to be limited.

This will effect:

Peter Petrelli
Dick Grayson

Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Hello the modly one formerly known as Nelle here.

1) I have gone by Nelle for a few years now as a nickname, but lately it just feels like there's just so much drama and bad experiences attached to the name that I've decided to start going by my first name. So I'm going to be going by Ashley, or Ashe from now on.

2) Similarly, I have a new email, AIM screenname and insanejournal. You can now find me at such.melodrama[at]gmail[dot]com and such melodrama on AIM, as well as [info]suchmelodrama. Why yes, there is a pattern fitting my massive OCD.

3) My AIM screenname is unlocked, so feel free to ping me there at any time.

That is all.

Heya folks! A few announcements regarding me. (QueenC)

1. In accordance with my personal IJ ([info]hopefulregret) I now have a sparkly new AIM name. h0pefulregret (that's a zero, not an 'oh', because that version was unfortunately taken ><). I'm going to be adding everyone to it in the next few minutes, but yes. From now on, you can reach me on there.

2. Because I am just that OCD, I also have a new email address that also matches. (

3. The AIM name is Not friends locked at all, so feel free to ping away. Obviously though if your sn is friends locked, you'll need to add me. *bats eyes cutely*

4. And for the somewhat largest transition of them all. I've decided to stop using my QueenC pseudonym. See, I picked a pseudonym back (eight or so years ago) when it was the 'in' thing to do and it just sorta... stuck. But, times change, as do people, and I've decided to start going by my RL nickname: Jessy.

Please note: if ya'll want to keep referring to me as QC, Queenie, QueenC, whatever, by all means feel free. I'm not going to freak out or anything. I just felt it was time for a change and am going to be changing all of my RP stuff accordingly.

And that's it! Questions/comments/etc. can all be posted here, over my shiny new AIM, etc. And if everyone could please give me a few days to get the email account lined up with my character journals (read: it may take me a bit to realize that I have a tag if something gets lost in the process) I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

Right, so. I'm Misha. Probably introduced myself a time or two before. But I havne't really gotten my kids in to play here, because I've had a lot going on with the school year winding down and what not. But I'm on summer break, now until August 3, so I have more time and more...focus, to lend to RP. And so, here I am.

I just apped this pretty boy today. This is Charlie Crews, from Life. He's coming from the end of S2, the end of the series. He's been out of prison about 2 years, after serving 12 years on a murder charge. He found and coerced a confession out of the guilty killer, but his name is still associated with the murders and there's a lot of unanswered questions.

I've got three others, right now. Crowley from Good Omens, Edward and Henry from My Own Worst Enemy, and Edward Sexby from The Devil's Whore. All four of them will post, tonight/tomorrow/over the next couple of days. Yes. They're all open to plot and fun times. Bring it on.

Hallo, fellow RPers! My name is Mimi, and I'm new here. *waves* I play the adorable Sasquatch, Sam Winchester (and am trying to drag my friend in with her amazing Dean XD), and I'm very excited to be here. It looks seriously cool :)

I look forward to meeting all of you, and threading with you guys in the future! If you have any questions, feel free to poke me on AIM, at Mbpdaisygrl1. If it says I'm not online, poke me anyway, I might be there and hiding :O

All right. So, role call is over and done, and the lists have been updated, so please feel free to start playing again. In terms of plot, nothing major has happened in terms of alien activity, other than the usual weevils being around. If you'd like for your character to have caught Torchwood's interest for potential employment in the downtime, feel free to comment here and we will discuss it. Also, if you would like your character to move out of the Torchwood owned flats and into another location, please leave a comment here. Other than that, just play and have fun.

Game Promotion

Thanks to Nelle for letting me promote this here.

Right. So, for those who don't know, I've been directing a play for the past three months. And in doing that, I totally slacked off of modding this game. I'm sure some people have written it off or forgotten it exists, but I want it to pick back up again for those who still want to be here. So just respond to this post with your name and whatever characters you still want to play if you're still interested in the game. I'll give everyone two weeks, since I'm sure some people might not see this right away. Everyone has until midnight on Thursday, May 7, EST. Removals will be done Friday, May 8.

Update on my computer situation. I got my laptop back last night, and it seems to be doing okay. I'm still a little worried, though that's probably me being gunshy about it, but I have it back! I just have to reinstall a couple of programs XD So, I should be mostly back :D

not quite a hiatus.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
My computer is screwed up. I'm forced to use my mom's desktop until god knows when. Which means I won't be online during the evenings until after dad goes to bed, except this weekend, while they're gone. Which means after Sunday, I'll only be able to be online during the day at school, during breaks, and late at night for short periods of time, after my parents go to bed, until my laptop is back :(

This will effect:

Hello all for those that don't know me I am Jania *grins and bows* I bring you Nathan Petrelli from Heroes. Nathan is from just after Cold Wars with a tweak or two. He is up for plotting of any kind, romantic or just general walling on.

He is also bisexual here folks so he will do anything with a pulse as long as they will put up with him.

I also have another pup or two in the wings, so ask and they may arrive.

Oh and my AIM name is Soloia if you wanna plot or just chat.

Nice to be here.

Hello everyone. This is Kira here with Eric Thompson Jr. from the Heroes Graphic Novels. The son of agent Thompson, Eric was raised in the Company along side Elle Bishop who he was partners with for a time (Donna's Big Date). Purely human, Eric was drawn into the conflict prompted by Evs Dropper to attempt to tear the Company apart from the inside by pitting Evos against Norms. He, along with Bianca Karina, were two of the only agents not to end up completely embroiled in the conflict and able to see that they were going to get nowhere if they didn't work together.

After taking down Evs Dropper, Thompson went to retrieve Donna Dunlop, an Evo agent that he was in love with, from where she was on a bridge surrounded by explosives when the other (human) agents were more than willing to leave her behind because one less Evo wouldn't hurt the world. Donna, however, had been nailed to the bridge by her feet, and there wasn't enough time to get her off of the bridge before the bomb would go. Unwilling to leave her by herself, Donna shoved him off the bridge in order to make sure that he survived.

When he was able to pull himself out of the river, it was all too clear to him that the Company had been doing things wrong all of these years. There wasn't any "us" and "them". There was only us. And if we forgot that, we'd all only end up defeating ourselves.

Eric is going to be coming in from the current Heroes timeline. For the last two months, he has been working at the Tappen, NJ facility with the small segment of the Company that is still functioning. He finds the current developments to be more than disgusting as well as proof that people need to get a clue.
