Similar to the logic puzzle, it's been a few years since we've had a post on how to search through community tags with html. Here's a refresher course, with some additional information given that I've learned some new tricks.

Searching through tags, how to get around that weird error, and searching by journal name for people without tags )

So, it's been a few years since we had one of these, so why not? Solve the puzzle by finding out which drinks, rooms, room numbers, and pets belong to whom, and what the pets are named.

Bonus question: Name the plant.

1. There are five "rooms" in a row, listed left to right (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
2. Jay spends his time in the garage.
3. Emcee drinks gin.
4. The person who lives in the sauna has a pet named Annabelle.
5. Bonnie's pet is called John, after her sons.
6. The sauna is just to the left of the corner of the bar.
7. The person who owns a dog drinks coffee.
8. An unnamed plant lives at the practice range.
9. The person in the middle room has an animal named George.
10. Chirrut likes room number 1.
11. The cockatiel lives next door to the person who drinks green tea.
12. The person who owns the plant lives next door to the person who drinks water.
13. Hans the glittery rock "lives" next door to the sauna.
14. Oswin owns a cat.
15. Chirrut's room is next door to the lake.
16. Jay owns George.
17. Annabelle's owner drinks chai tea.
18. Emcee sings in the corner of the bar.

Here is a nifty link that will draw a graph for you. I'll post the solution here on Wednesday.

So, I wanted to get AU Week out of the way before I announced this, but I might as well do it now.

Me and Zed were talking a couple of weeks back about the fact that there was no way to get digital only content, like Orange Is The New Black and The Tick, in Milliways. I talked to our very awesome mods, and our ideas have been accepted and approved.

This means that Milliways now has a repository for web originals located in the library next to the DVDs and Blu-rays, and your pup can now get a terminal to access the new computer network. The network is designed to allow sharing of content, inter-Bar emails and stuff like that. Still no true internet, though.

Hope you guys enjoy, and thanks to Zed for the repository idea, as well as the invaluable advice.

Happy RPing!

AU week is coming to a close

 Wow, people, that was amazing! Who'd have thought there could be a succulent AU! And all the other amazing ideas people were posting and threading out.

Thanks ever so much for participating, and thanks to Munnin, my partner in crime, for doing most if the organising work this year, as I am laid up in hospital and relegated to using my Kindle Fire tablet in between medical stuff happening. Still, it's amazing it was possible at all; we all live in the future now!

I suppose we can keep playing for the rest of the weekend, finishing off ideas and threads, but perhaps no new AU EPs once it's officially Monday? Then normalcy can return. As soon as we've established what's normal, anyway.

Let's do this again next year.

It should be pretentious and snobbish to say: “Sure I eat hot dogs, I have homemade mustard and homemade lingonberry ketchup on it”. Then to take the DIY philosophy serious you have to make the hot dog yourself.

Context sounds delicious!

At the tail end of AU week, I'm stealing an idea fractalmuses shared with me on Discord. 

If your pup were to be in a Star Wars AU, what would their role be? Or what if it were a Star Trek AU instead? Would they be in Starfleet? If so, what branch: command, operations, or sciences?

Summary:

A house full of ghosts is no place to fall in love.

Malcolm Carmichael has been coping with his post-war trauma by taking lovers, teaching art to schoolboys, and trying to ignore the ghosts he sees everywhere. At the death of his mother, he realizes he wants more than just to coast on by, and leaves the exclusive school in search of something more.

Caleb Thibodeaux was so traumatized by the death of his parents in a fire that he hasn't spoken a word since. His uncle Noel hires Malcolm to be his tutor, and Malcolm discovers that Caleb is not the only Thibodeaux son with secrets. The plantation house Fidele is beautiful but haunted, and Noel is much the same.

Soon Malcolm is absorbed in protecting Caleb and Noel from threats both living and dead, and in uncovering the story of Fidele.

What are some of your character’s cheesiest--for lack of a better word--canon lines? Cheesy can be a lot of things, good and bad--bombastic, corny, clunky, earnest, facile, overwritten, overacted, over-the-top in one way or another… Does it make you cringe every time, or do you kind of love it?

(NB: I’m asking as someone whose character actually says “There is no stopping it! There is only…...THE WAR.”)

oh and a warm apple. like, a really warm apple. warmer than my teeth when i bit into it. no offense but. why. did they microwave this apple? did they store it in a dragon's mouth before allowing me to purchase it? did this apple recently return from a trip to the surface of the sun?

This AU week is full of great stuff and a returning Milliwaysers too. I'm only listing three here, fill up the comments with what you're loving.

Ibani continues to be heartbreaking.

Star Wars as Star Trek with Hera, Kanan and Thrawn is so cool. I love this.

Succulent AU, I love that this happened.

 As it's AU week anyway -- remember the old Hogwarts AU we had on MM back on LJ? Even if not -- who would your character be, what House, student or teacher or other? Death Eater or Dumbledore's Army?

Your Muse: Mordred Deschain
Muse wanted: Any Stephen King creation
Community: SWS, WWW or journals
Fandom: Dark Tower
Canon or AU: Near-canon or family AU
Medium: Book
Contact via: PM or here

I tend to have a Mordred who either gave up the Tower and both his fathers or who never killed Mia in the first place and was thus a true member of the ka-tet. (Or one who died but lived. There are other worlds than these, and Mordred was born inside the cycle anyway. Perhaps he simply popped into existence once it was time for him to be.)

I haven't watched the new movie, there's no way it could do the books justice, but movie characters are better than nothing and there are bedamned few TDT muses around.

Blatantly stolen from [profile] musefool, here are the first lines from a few of my current WIPs.

Fidele
The weather was so fine that day that when my afternoon art class (eighteen first-, second-, and third-graders) begged to have class outside, I agreed.

Continuo
The boy was maybe three years old, much too young to be on his own in the crowd of Library Square.

The Funeral Blues of Barnaby Sloan
At precisely eleven fifty-five on a Tuesday morning in January, Barnaby Sloan put the papyrus he was poring over into its storage box, packed his laptop in his backpack, tucked the backpack into a cubbyhole in his desk, and left the documents room.

Cosmic Latte
Grad students could not live by study alone, Dylan said, so Jacob went with him to Zebra on Saturday night.

I don't think we're supposed to post anything for [community profile] unconventionalcourtship before our posting date, so I'm going to leave that story (technically, those stories) off the meme this time.

I've got more Scrivener projects that are still just ideas than I realized. And then there are a few that are going to be rewritten from word one, so they're somewhere between idea and WIP. And there are still a lot of ideas on the Big List of Next that aren't even projects yet.

Waugh. So many words, so little time.

Testy Tuesday

Morning, Milliways, or whatever time of day wheresoever you are!

Thanks to the next two days of my life:

How does your character prepare for tests? This can be literal tests--a school exam or final project, tryouts, contests--or more metaphorical ones, like a life or death mission or preparing to tackle a problem more boldly and publicly and possibly confrontationally than before, or even something others might thing mundane but which is a serious emotional challenge.

Does your character cram heavily right before? Do they just punt studying/preparing altogether no matter the circumstances? Do they work better with other people, or alone? Does it make them panic, or does it give them focus? If different kinds of tests make them react differently, that's interesting too! Why?

...Hi guys. Long time no see.

This is Jill, a Milliwayser of the old school, saying hello from sunny windy-as-hell North Dakota. Some of you may remember me from such characters as Jane Lane, Angel Dumott Schunard, and Claudia Donovan (she might make a reappearance if I can figure out what she's been up to); since drifting out of the game, I've moved halfway across the country, gotten married (yes, to Quinn), taken up modship at another DWRP, and fallen headlong into Persona Hell, which finally moved me to come back here.

For my triumphant return I'm bringing you one Yusuke Kitagawa from Persona 5, a melodramatic art nerd who occasionally dresses up in funny clothes and summons a thief of legend to fight cognitive monsters. You know, as you do. I'm working on enabling Quinn to a castmate, but that didn't pan out before the end of this past app round. (I also won't be diving into AU week... this time, but someone please tell me Conversations With Dead People is still a thing.)

Good to be back, y'all. And now, THE ENTRANCE POST.

Morning, everyone!

Well, afternoon here... but hopefully it's still morning for the majority of you (work's been mad).

Since we're now hip-deep in AU Week, here's a AU-themed question for you all, in honour of Pokemon Go's recent one-year anniversary:

Congratulations! Your character is a Pokemon trainer. What kind of trainer would they be - a researcher, a gym leader, a healer, a Pokemon breeder, or a travelling fighter? Would they favour a 'type' of Pokemon (fire, water, earth, electric...) or perhaps just those with a certain trait or personality? Would they have a tiny close-knit team of monsters, or would they try to catch 'em all? Would they - gasp - work for Team Rocket?

(With many thanks to Don for letting me steal today's DE!)




Unrelatedly: has anyone else seen Atomic Blonde yet? I saw it last night and now want someone to discuss it with!

Happy Hour with AU YT is up! Actually, it's been up for a while. Heh.

Expect slowtimes around 6 as I have dinner with my parents, but if you tag, I will get to it. Promise.
