Which persons your character has met in Milliways do they admire most? They might be either heroes from tales or legends, or people whose work they admire for personal reasons. For example, the hero that gets the most awe from Teja is Weyland (despite being fully aware of the man's highly problematic personality) because he's the god of smiths from Teja's people's pantheon; for Father Harman, it's Rae, because she deals with vampires all by herself in a desperately dark crapsack world, with none of the resources he has.

Languages and their equivalents

So, the translation plot has thrown into sharp relief what the Star Wars languages are headcanoned to be. For example, Wookieepedia states that Basic is roughly equivalent to English--and all of the other languages the films are dubbed into, despite Aurebesh not remotely translating to an English alphabet.

Fi has been saying that Festian is similar to Spanish, and Chirrut-mun and I think Jedhan is similar to Mandarin Chinese, but clearly isn't.

What do you all think of the languages Star Wars has to offer?

What does your character think of birthdays? Do they celebrate? Do they treat others' differently from their own?

What 2017 has been doing for me is making me realize that I can’t do work in the same way I used to.

The above-linked piece by John Scalzi has a lot of good points, but I think the linktext I chose from it is really the core, for me.

Good morning and welcome to another week.

Your character has found themselves at a party, whether intentional or not. How do they feel about this? Do they have a good time or do they have to fake it for propriety's sake? Do they stay to close the party or clear out as soon as they can?

Hallo Milliways!

How would YOU like an update?

Apps haven't been processed yet, I've got a project for school that's been taking priority. 
Soon. I hope to have them good and done by mid-week. 

As you may, or maynot, have noticed folks have been using Subject Headings for plots.
Thank you so much for doing this!
We figure this is the best way for people to Yes And, rather than expecting people to Opt Out. 
(I think going forward we might also consider having plot creators make a unified Plot Name for said plot, so subject headings are a bit more formalized. But that's because I'm a bucket of fuss.)

Tag Stuff is still ongoing, just slowly. 
Ever so slowly.

There'll be a thread below if there are any questions or concerns that haven't been addressed.
As always the mod email account is also available...though, because of aforementioned Real Life responses are a touch slower.


This week we have a fresh assortment of:


First to claim, is first to 'tend.
Have at!

Hello friends! I'm so sorry I've dropped off the face of the earth a bit-- I've been moving and settling into new circumstances and all that sort of chaos. I'm going to try to be around a bit more, but also if anyone ever has need of me or one of mine, please don't hesitate to reach out!

Boston Medical Center, I appreciate your desire to reach the general public with messages encouraging folks with breasts to show up for mammograms, esp. since this is October and that means Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

But could you PLEASE not do it with ads on Pandora where you have your mammogram machine (which sounds like a middle-aged white woman named Pam or Kimberly or something) sing breast-themed versions of Salt-N-Pepa music into someone's answering machine? I'm allowed to listen to Pandora at work, but I keep having to scramble to hit the mute button on my computer because it goes from nice shapeless calming ambient to LET'S TALK ABOUT BREAST HEALTH PLEASE, LET'S TALK ABOUT-


Plotty reminder: translation fail!

Hullo hullo!

Tomorrow--Friday the 13th, because more bad luck is just what this year needs--the Translation Failure Plot will kick off. The effects will be a patchy disruption to Milliways' translation field: in some parts of the bar translation could be off completely, or result in garbled run-through-google-translate-too-many-times nonsense, or could be entirely unaffected.

A mod has requested that people please put "translation fail" or something along those lines in the subject line of posts, so that people can choose to participate or not in the event.

Hit me up with any questions!

IN HONOR hardly being around lately because I've hit a really busy spell in my life...

What five things should someone place at the points of a pentagram to summon your character?

Bonus round: is there something they should chant while doing so? (Or something they should just shout into a crowd to make your character come running?)
