Cara here. This is Ezio Auditore, from the Assassin's Creed series. He is a clinical psychologist, and he came to America for more research opportunities - and, frankly, because America has more people who might need his services.

He's played by the beauteous Joe Manganiello, and he loves interaction. So yay.

Farewell [Feb. 1st, 2013|10:43 am]

This is a sad day for me. I have been apart of Under the Rainbow since its beginning days over on GreatestJournal. But sadly, the day has come for me to depart. Things are just so crazy in real life, that I am not keeping up with anything. So the following characters are leaving:

Jane Seymour- [info]motheroftheheir
Edward Tudor- [info]true_tudor_heir
Katherine of Aragon- [info]extreme_sorrow
Mary Tudor- [info]bloodymarytudor
Aramis- [info]pius_musketeer
Phillip Micciche/Prince Phillip- [info]wakehrwithakiss
Hades- [info]the_unseenone
Jade (OC)- [info]half_jaded
Anthony Knivert- [info]quiet_playboy
Damon Salvatore- [info]renaissancevamp
Henry Fitzroy- [info]grayimmortality
Rose Tyler- [info]byanyotherword

It's been a pleasure interacting with you all. May we meet again.

Saying goodbye... [Jan. 31st, 2013|01:51 pm]


Hey, this is Jo (and Eric who can't post while at work). Never thought we'd have to say it, but we're going to have to leave UTR *right* when we'd hoped to get back into more RP. It's sad for me - Gabby here was my first muse on IJ and here, back in 2008. We can just pretend that she and Henry got married and lived happily ever after or something.

The mods have been emailed, and this actually doesn't affect any storylines going right now as we've already spoken with our one writing partner left here in UTR and they are aware and fine with everything.

Thank you to the mods, the players, and the friends we made through the years - and good luck to the comm for future fun and wackiness!

So, saying goodbye are...

[info]music_in_me (Gabriella Montez)
[info]doesnt_think (Charles Brandon)
[info]lovedabeast (Belle Beaumont/Beauty)
[info]notkatherine (Elena Gilbert)
[info]good_to_be_king (Henry Tudor)
[info]foundtheslipper (Cristoph Venner/Prince Charming)
[info]man_of_letters (Eustace Chapuys)
[info]orbisnonsuficit (James Bond AU)
[info]primo_girl (Sharpay Evans)

Thank you all,
Jo ([info]wiccabuffy & Eric [info]dark_wesley)

Here's the random assignments for the Swap Plot! Contact the other person and you guys can decide if you want to do a personality swap or a body swap or what. If you decide you want to make additional pairings at anytime during the plot (Saturday 1/19-Sunday 1/27), that's fine too! You can decide when it happens and how long it lasts! Let me know if you have any questions. Starts tomorrow, so go wild!

I might be on hiatus again for a bit.. our internet expires on today or the next day, and it might be a few weeks (or sooner) before we can update it again. Though I might borrow a laptop or do net stuff from phone if necessary. But hopefully it will be a short time before I get back.

Is anybody, like... In love with the wiki? I've been thinking about consolidating it into one or two reference posts here on IJ, rather than worrying about making players update their wikis.

Anybody have strong feelings either way? I know some people spent a lot of time on their character's pages, and obviously we wouldn't suddenly delete the wiki without letting you save that info (and hopefully post it on your journals so people can still see it!)

[Plot] Swap Meet! [Jan. 2nd, 2013|07:57 pm]

[Tags|, ]

We have a gamewide plot coming up soon! Unless there are any objections, plot is planned for Saturday, January 19 through Sunday, January 27.

There are a few options here.

A) Personality Swap: Two characters start acting like each other. You would keep the same journals, icons, players, characters, but they would act like the other person. They are still the same person, you're just playing them with the personality of another character.

B) Body Swap: Two characters actually swap bodies. In this case, players upload the icons of the other character to their journal (so that the 'bodies' have swapped), but continue playing their own character, who will probably be surprised to be in their friend's (or enemy's!) body.

Let me know if you have any questions, or if you have a third idea you'd like to try.

There are two signup methods, too! You can either talk with each other and pick the characters you want to switch, or the mods can do random assignment. If you want to participate but don't know who (or just want the extra chaos that comes with random), please comment here and tell me which characters you'd like thrown in the random pot.

Not everyone has to participate, but the more the merrier!

Hey folks, Mandy here. Sorry about my absence lately. Christmas was full of so much traveling and family craziness, and then we came back home to find out someone broke into our house while we were gone. Not fun! So I'm still trying to get everything in order, but I wanted to let you know I hadn't forgotten about you all!

We're going to be introducing a big plot soon!

Sage here with a returning puppet! This here is Prince Andivad of the Goblin Kingdom! He's what happens when a strong-hearted girl and her Goblin King actually wind up married and having a baby. I had some CR with him a while back, but until Mandy gets herself situated and her ducks in a row, I'm not going to say one way or another if his paramour is or isn't around. :3

But what does this mean for you, the others of UTR? Well hey! Now we have access to the Goblin Kingdom, and ostensibly, other realms of the Six Kingdoms, provided Andy feels like pointing out how to get there, which is unlikely because he rarely feels like being genuinely helpful. It also means that there are going to be goblins (of the Henson/Froud persuasion) popping up in unexpected places. Feel free to have your characters wonder why their sock drawer is giggling, etc. It's a biproduct of goblin royalty being around, after all.

So yes, please enjoy your goblins!

[Mod post] READ ME! [Nov. 30th, 2012|06:53 am]



So we're hoping to reopen this weekend! Almost everyone has replied now, which I'm really excited about!

Basically, the vortex is turning itself inside out and Under the Rainbow is going to become an AU of itself.

Jewels and I believe it's very important to allow players to keep all of the stuff they've written. It's a lot of energy and heart you guys have put into building your characters and their relationships, and we are NOT going to erase all of that.

However, we do realize that with all of the drops, you may be losing some characters you had CR with, and that can be complicated.

You have three options!

1.) Keep all the stuff! Histories are the same, just continue on like normal.

2.) Complete reboot. Fresh off the vortex, clean slate.

3.) Soft reboot. Keep what you want, change what you want. Feel free to rewrite or handwave things as you see fit.

We'd encourage you to talk to other players you have CR with and collaborate on what you want to do! We're hoping the flexibility will help get your creative juices flowing in whatever way works best for you.

Questions? Comments? Feedback? Let us know. If there are rules you want changed, let us know and we will be happy to talk about it!

[Mod post] READ ME! [Nov. 23rd, 2012|04:25 pm]


Okay! Everyone who wants to stay, please read and respond!

This is a list of the current characters. It might not be 100% current--Just working with what's in the wiki. What I need is for you to read over your characters and comment which ones you are keeping and which you want to drop. Please reply by December 1st. We're hoping December 1st will be the Grand Re-Opening.

Comments are public, and I'm going to try to keep up-to-date by crossing out dropped characters, so others can see how this affects their CR, and if it changes any drops/apps/reboots others want to make.

Respond by December 1st! )

A plot post will be coming soon to explain the Restart.

[Mod Post] Back from the dead? [Nov. 18th, 2012|11:48 am]


Hey folks! I first want to apologize for being so absent lately. I've really been slacking as a mod, and haven't been as involved in this game as I'd like to be. Wrapping up my last semester of grad school, and my thoughts have been elsewhere.

I'd hate to see this game die, though. It's been around longer than any game I've been a part of, and I really love this game and the players and everything about it! So let's get it going again! Who's with me?

Seriously, who's still interested? Comment here and let me know if you want to stay involved. This isn't a formal activity check. None of us have really been active. It's more a... 'Re-Activity Check'.. If that makes sense. I'm going to be spending some time thinking about what characters I want to keep and which I'm dropping, and I'd encourage you guys to do the same.

I'd really like to get going again, if there's still enough interest. ♥ you guys. We'll try to think up some exciting plot to get blood moving again (And you guys are welcome to submit plot ideas, guys!! We love that stuff!)

[Sep. 12th, 2012|06:16 pm]

Okay. A few things.

1. I am so sorry I've been very absent recently. I've been a little overworked and haven't been getting online much. But I am going to fix this! I am going to try and really make my pups more active!

2. I am restarting Naruto Uzamaki from Naruto. I was going to drop him, but he's my oldest, most beloved pup. I just can't let him go. What I would like to do, if people would be okay with this, is try and get him friends with some of the future kids. I want him to be somewhere between 17-21. Don't know how old all the future kids are. Gaius is 18, I believe... I think they're all in that 17-21 age range. So please let me know what you think! Naruto is super positive and happy kid. Very determined and friendly

3. I have some drops. If anyone is REALLY insistent that I keep someone, they could probably convince me, but they've been very quiet so was going to give them up.

Kaylee Frye (Firefly)
Mycroft Holmes (BBC's Sherlock)
Charles xavier (X-Men: First Class)
Luna (Sailor Moon)

This leaves All of these guys to play with. Please, if you have any plot ideas or anything I would love to hear them! Thanks!


Also dropping Kamiko Shepard. Also Guinevere and Merlin will be NPC'd. I also talked to Mandy and she's NPCing Arthur and Nimue.

[Mod Posts] VOTING SEASON [Aug. 30th, 2012|10:51 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Edit: So the polls didn't work. Sorry! Please comment with your answers, thanks.

Hey guys! We've got a lot of new players, and it's come to my attention that there are some things being handled a little differently now. Previously, we've said that strike-outs are readable by characters, and look exactly like crossed-out text. Lately, it looks like characters have been using strike-outs expecting that others can't read it. Both ways definitely have their merits, and Jewels and I are flexible to changing this, I just want everyone on the same page. The last thing we want is characters reading things that the other player didn't want read!

So Ballot Issue #1:

Should characters be able to read strike-outs, or should it be only readable to muns?


UTR has always had an unlocked OOC. We're trying to decide if we want to change that or not. The comms are set so that only members can comment or post, but should non-players be able to view the OOC? (The IC-comms will remain public!)

Ballot Issue #2

Should the OOC be friends-locked?

Discussion, town hall meetings, and anonymous donations are all welcome in the comments below, but I refuse to release either my birth certificate or tax returns, tyvm.

[info]doesntthink is taking his wife Jane and kid on a vacation.
[info]lovedabeast moved in with Prince Charming & is currently happy.
[info]music_in_me is still in newlywed bliss with Henry Tudor.

[info]orbisnonsuficit was dating a muse that is no longer in UTR so he might be leaving the comm soon.
[info]man_of_letters is currently interested in Mary Tudor.
[info]good_to_be_king is married to Gabby & thinking of what to do with Whitehall next.
[info]primo_girl is dating Prince Phillip and being BFFs with Gabby.
[info]foundtheslipper is living with Belle pursuing his singing career.

We'll be trying to figure out where to take our muses shortly after we review & get all caught up on happenings. Good to be back!

SO! There has been a request for a musical plot. Who's excited? I'm excited!

Characters will burst into song, hopefully revealing FEELINGS and stuff. Because that's when people sing in musicals! They can sing already established songs, or you can make up new songs, whatever you like!

Musical tropes will show up, too. Random backup dancers! Flashy costumes! They might even hear applause after particularly good numbers.

Have fun with it!

I'm thinking June July 20th-27th, if that works for people!

Thoughts? Ideas? Gratuitous praise?

Why hello! Beth again. I thought I'd already done this, but oops, I hadn't.

This is Dick Grayson, who is a sort of 'Nolanverse what-if.' He comes from a storyline set between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Basically, he's comics canon until his parents' deaths, when he was shuffled off into the Gotham City foster care system. He took up vigilante activity independently after Batman sightings hit the papers, but without equipment or a billionaire's support, he was basically an exceptionally acrobatic, parkour-loving kid in a ski mask.

Eventually, of course, he ran into Batman and after a bunch of go homes he eventually did something tremendously right and earned some respect. He skipped Robin entirely and entered the fray as Nightwing, and while he trained under and took orders from the Bat, he also had his own crimefighting going on as a side-gig.

Anyway! That's it here. I plan to get him active soon, so if anyone wants plot, just let me know!

Hi there! I'm Ellie, and I'm new here. I know some of you from Valar, but for those I don't know, it's nice to meet you!

I'm bringing in Agent Maria Hill from the Marvel movieverse. Maria's an agent of SHIELD, and kind of a hardass. She takes crap from absolutely nobody and won't hesitate to call people out if they try. She's also pretty distant emotionally and has issues with letting people get close to her. Unhappy past, military history, and so on. In short, she's a loyal, efficient, and effective SHIELD agent with no personal life to speak of.

I love plotting! The best way to reach me is usually through email (mezzomaybe@gmail.com), but I'm also sporadically on AIM (paranoid elldroid). Feel free to contact me if you have any ideas. I look forward to playing with you all!

Hi guys

So Jewels is going away for a bit on vacation. Starting Tuesday, I won't have internet at all until Friday. So if someone apps, just wait for Mandy, and don't wait for me to answer cause I can't. Gotta save phone power.

After camping, I'm going to Boston. I'll have internet, but I won't be around cause we're doing things. I'll answer apps with my phone but that's about it.

Oh and when I get back, I'll intro Bruce Banner and Sif.

We need a Thor and Captain America dammit.

The aliens that didn't get splattered have now left the system. I believe the Doctors went and had a conversation with their leaders, which may have played a factor. And all the fights from the heroes convinced them that it really wasn't worth it.

Feel free to continue action logs! We want everybody to get a chance to play as much as they'd like. Weird chaos things (Switched PBs, genders, etc.etc.) can continue for a while longer, or continue indefinitely, or disappear now. Whatever you guys want!

[plot] CHAOS, PHASE 2 [Apr. 22nd, 2012|09:30 pm]

[Tags|, ]


Guess what! Those villains that are causing all the weird and leading the heroes on crazy goosechases?

Yeah, those aren't really villains from your movies or books or tv shows or whatever. They're imposters! Alien imposters!

And someone just figured out what's going on, so they're starting Stage Two.

Stage Two involves them all (and a number of 'sleeper agent' NPCs) activating and beginning to look like creepy-ass aliens. They're violent and evil and will attack people! Big Damn Hero types might wanna get out and fight!

Aliens will be around and fighting until Saturday, April 28. Feel free to form teams and convoys and safehouses or whatever your guys would do if there was a full-scale alien invasion!

Weird chaos stuff can go away or continue through the week, whatever you want!

Just as a little FYI for you. The character I just put into the main comm Chuuko Nezu (sailor Iron mouse from Sailor Moon) Is not a baddie in the chaos. Not really a baddie any more in regards to sailor moon, but I thought bringing her in would be hilarious because senshi may confuse her as being a Chaos plot villian anyway.

So yeah!
