 What would your character be like gender-switched? Would there be much of a difference, both physically and in the societal setting of their world.

Guppy's foot has almost healed up now, so he's been sorting out some things in the infirmary this afternoon. And right now, he's working on an inventory stock check list on his laptop, back in the main bar.

Botherable, though.

cottoncandypink: (A goddamn mess)
[personal profile] cottoncandypink posting in [community profile] milliways_bar
Wilford's had a couple of days to really think about what Jim had to say, while he's been hiding out upstairs. The last time he had to do something like this, it didn't end well, and doing it now just makes everything itchy and restless. But nobody's come banging on his door to haul him away, so at least it's going better than last time.

He has to get out though. He can't stay here forever, and there are things he needs to take care of. If he can figure out how to take care of them, that is. He's not going to do that hiding away in his room, so he waits until morning to take Buster downstairs and try to solve his problem over breakfast. While Buster chows down on his usual breakfast of tuna and raw egg, Wilford has a quiet conversation with the bar. He suspects that maybe this place had something to do with the problem Jim caused, but he gets neither confirmation nor denial, and eventually gives up.

The problem — one of the problems — is that he can't keep Buster here. Too many people are prepared to snatch him up the second it looks like he's been left alone, which is what led to the problem with Jim in the first place.

Eventually, Wilford knows what he has to do. By then, the risk of having his hand bitten off because Buster is too laser-focused on his food to pay attention to where he's putting his teeth has subsided, so Wilford reaches down and untwists the tags from his collar, taking everything but the one with his name and giving them to the bar. That's only half of a solution though, but he has no idea what to do about the second half. So he sits back and waits for an idea to come to him.

With very few exceptions, characters interact with others in their world. Most work with them in some way. Of those, most even bother to care about other people. (I know there are exceptions.) And even if none of this happens in their own worlds, there's always Milliways.

So, how do your characters react to conflict within their social circles? For the ones who will put in more than zero effort, what will they do? For the ones who usually cannot possibly care less, what can make them care?

Filk in Poland

Last year I met Polish fan Marcin Klak (Alqua) at Fantastika (Swecon 2017). He was interested in forging bridges between Polish and international fandom, and also appreciative of and interested in filk. Thanks to his blog Fandom Rover I've gotten a look into Polish fandom, Polish con culture, and Polish filking. Especially the con report from Medalikon gives some insight.

From what I can tell, Polish filk (for very wide values of filk) is small, but they have a core of performers that do concerts at their various cons, and they seem inhabit the intersection between LARP, fandom, reenactment, and folk music (though that might be based on the limited stuff I've found).

Some links on Polish filk that I've found so far:

  • Barbara Karlik (in English), harpist, singer, and songwriter. She has songs by [personal profile] thnidu, Gwen Knighton, and Alexander James Adams in her repertoire. I can recommend "The siege of Hedgehogfurt".
  • Polish filk wiki, has a small collection of Polish and some American filk.
  • Liz Katrin (Soundcloud), Interview (in English)
  • Kruffachi (Facebook), who seems to be the most "filkish" within Polish fannish music that I have found so far

I'm back, y'all. Last week was soooo long and the move isn't done. Ugg.

Anyway, let's do some fic! Comment with pups you'd like to write for, we'll then comment back with prompts from which you'll write a short fic. And since AU week is sometime in the near future, how about the fic is a preview of the world you might be thinking of playing from?

Lois McMaster Bujold says, here:

https://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/15463253-new-penric-impending

I am pleased to report that I have finished the first draft of a new Penric & Desdemona novella. (For that peculiar value of "finished" that means, "still dinking till it's pulled from the writer's twitchy hands.")

Title will be "Penric's Fox"

Length, at this moment, is around 37,400 words. It is more-or-less a sequel to "Penric and the Shaman", taking place about eight or nine months after that story.

Final editing and formatting, arranging for cover art to send it out into the world nicely dressed, etc., will take some unknown amount of time and eyeball-endurance, but e-pub will likely happen in August.

My computer file tells me I started typing the opening on March 3rd, but of course there was lead-up to that. It is, in general, hard to tell or remember when a project segues over from "notion" to "planning", although the notion had been with me for some time. Story notions are like a collection of vaguely related objects rattling around in a box; planning starts when some key object that connects them all drops in, and things suddenly get interesting.

Ta, L.

Sinric comes in from his door, looking older and more subdued that his usual self, dressed with almost monastic dour.

He stomps his feet, shaking his hair which shifts from a muted, almost greying platinum back to his usual gold. As he sheds the dun coloured outer robe, his face returns to his androgynous look, if tight with tiredness and ill-temper.

By the time he reaches the Bar, she has pot of tea waiting for him. "Thank you, dear one but I think I need something stronger." She adds a little glass of something clear and alcoholic with a smiley-face napkin.

This was posted by [personal profile] hms42 over on Facebook:

For those who still look at Livejournal (I know most people are not on there any longer), the filk archive LJ account has been hacked a couple of times over the past few days and they are posting in Russian on there.

Its going to get migrated over to Dreamwidth for the history to be preserved before the account is closed.

The site itself is currently down for reprogramming and will eventually be put back online.


The LJ account has since been cleaned up and migrated to [personal profile] filkarchive here on Dreamwidth.

Cassian enters Milliways with his pistol blaster in a holster at his side and rolling his shoulders. Its been a long day and he needs to do something or else he's going to break cover which he can't afford to do.

When he goes up to Bar to get water and hand wraps, she reminds him other people might be interested and he writes a quick note in Aurabesh that she translates on the notice board: Want to spar? Need to practice your accuracy. Come outside.

Instead of his name, he signs it with the Alliance Starbird.

Outside he starts setting up the firing range and finds the stormtrooper helmets he'd used before are still there. Then he gives the heavy bag a few good hits before stripping down to his undershirt and stretching to see who else comes along.

Tiny tag: Cassian Andor, Baze Malbus, Chirrut Imwe, Eden, Cassidy, Rose
(OOC: Unofficial fight club and firing range. I'll set up places below, so it can be treated like other fight clubs. Cassian won't be watching as closely as Sam. Let me know if you want a thread with me or not, treat this like a party post too, set up whatever you need, threadhop. Open as long as everyone wants it to be.)

Hey, so there hasn't been a fight club for a while and I know I have at least one pup who wants to hit and blow things up. I'm not planning on doing an official fight club but an unofficial one with Cassian out by the firing range and pells. Would anyone be interested?

ETA: Post is up here. I've set up a few subthreads, please add more, tag under. Let me know if you want Cassian anywhere if not I'll be tagging around. Have fun, channel the anger.

I had a question, and in trying to look up the answer to said question, I was faced with another one.

Which one of you is responsible for this? http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Roleplay/MilliwaysBar

I had no idea that page existed, and I'm tickled at it! It's great!


And since I never did find the answer to my original question, I'll ask it here as well. What is the hotel that the bar's rooms are supposed to be modelled after? I know its rooms are weird, and that's all I can remember.

You know who's been quiet lately? Loki! Loki's been quiet lately! That's probably fine though. He's just been off in the library, looking up a few maps, a few old texts, a few new texts, things like that. It's fine.

He saunters through the main room with a leather sack slung over his shoulder, making for a door that--isn't there? What? There's a paper napkin pinned on the wall where his door should be, and after reading it Loki stalks back to the Bar for a quiet but intense argument. "Look, you officious, glorified piece of wooden--"

Looks like Bar is flexing her muscles today.

Jim's been out in the forge all night, working on a Thing. He left in the morning, took a walk in the grounds and then went upstairs for a swim. Now he's down by the bar. He's tired. He's distracted. He's...still not getting anywhere with Bar letting him out of here.

'I already promised you I won't kill her.'

A napkin appears, which he reads and crumples in his fist (though he can't exactly argue with what it said).

'You know I could just tell Mycroft, and he'd do it for me? And I haven't. Let me out.'

Another napkin. More quiet rage. Jim sucks a breath in through his nose, and stretches his neck 'til it pops. But he (almost) sounds polite when he appears to give in, and sits down.

'Let me see some kyber crystals then.'

This, Bar will apparently oblige with, though they're as small as Galen said they'd be. And they come with an obligatory sandwich and glass of water, because even when denying him what he wants, Bar will apparently make sure people get fed.


[OOC: catch him anywhere (other than swimming, unless you have access to his room somehow). I may be occasionally sporadic due to work, but here for hours and this is open for a good few days. :)]

The door to Milliways swings open, to let in a giant in midnight blue power armour streaked with painted lightning bolts. Icons of mortality and judgement adorn the warplate, and the faceplate is painted with a white skull design. Large scarlet backswept wings, like those of a bat, are mounted on the helmet and the gauntlets are painted a similar red. In one hand, the giant carries a long staff tipped with a chainsaw blade, and in the other he carries a black leather suitcase.

He walks to the bar, perches himself on a stool and removes his helm to reveal a handsome, if very pale and scarred, face topped with short black hair. With his eyes closed against the light of the lamp fixtures, he slips a pair of aviator sunglasses on. Once the sunglasses are on, he leans over to the nearest patron, and taps them on the shoulder.

"If you don't mind my asking, what is this place?"

After Cassidy returned from a little excursion with Cassian, he'd immediately gone missing for several days.

Well. No. Not exactly.

He'd just been up in his room with a supply of spice, the good kind and the better kind. An embarrassment of riches, really.

Apologies to his neighbors who might have heard ceaselessly loud music and even louder, very enthusiastic one-sided conversations. And possibly arguments.

Late one evening, Cassidy finally comes downstairs, wearing a floral patterned bathrobe and blue pajama pants with an all-over Hello Kitty print (these were "borrowed" from the Lost & Found box). As he yawns and scratches himself, he flops down onto a barstool and orders a steak. Rare. Very rare. Like, it's still fucking moving rare.

Also, whiskey.

Anyone who comes near him will catch a whiff of some vaguely pepper-like scent.
