Jessica Stevens - Introduction!“You really sure you wanna do this? It’s a man’s—sorry.”Jessica Stevens - Introduction!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
“I swear I’ll knock you out. Then we’ll see if you still think the same.”
My name is Jessica Stevens. It’s December 3rd, and it’s my 21st birthday. My four older brothers are here, and so is my dad. There’s a homemade cake in front of me, with about 21 candles on it. They didn’t have the ones shaped like numbers. Can you believe that?
I should probably tell you a bit about myself. I’m about 5’7’’ feet tall, I eat my vegetables and go jogging every morning at 5AM. Since everybody else is sleeping at that time, I try to be super silent when I sneak out. I also like some of the latest pop hits, but I’m not a huge music fan.
I’m also a feminist. Half of you reading this must’ve winced, eh? Well, truth is, I cant blame you. There are some crazy femi-nazis out there, taking things w

Looks like we have our complete set!
So, I'll give everyone until Friday to make additional Links and Marios if they want. BUT. If the count is uneven by Friday, then we'll only be able to use some of them. Good luck!
-- Each member of our group can do only TWO Marios and TWO Links for our collab. You can choose to do both, or just one or the other. It's up to you.
-- Marios must be facing right, and Links must be facing left. This way when I put it together it'll look like they're about to clash -- like an army! For a visualization of this set-up, look here:
-- You may do any canon version of Mario and Link. This means anything from red overalls Mario, blue overalls Mario, Paper Mario, frog-suit Mario, Wind waker Link, Twilight Princess Link, bunny Link, Goron Link etc. Have fun and be creative!
-- But don't make up a version of Mario or Link that doesn't exist. That means no gender bending, no made-up suits for Mario.

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Brianna Baggins (face-claim: Felicity Jones) - A young hobbit and the titular protagonist. At first, she just wants to stay home and be a Baggins. But eventually, her curiosity and the Took side of her take over and she joins the adventure. Over the course of the journey, her courage grows and she matures as a person, growing closer with the dwarves as the result. After returning home, she adopts an orphaned Felka in an attempt to heal herself from the loss of Traude, Kamilla and Frieda. She is cheerful and easygoing, albeit over-enthusiastic about things.
Gillian the Grey (face-claim: Meryl Streep) - A wizard who assigns Brianna to the quest and accompanies the dwarves on their quest, feeling sympathy for them and believing it is Traude’s birthright to inherit Erebor. Wise and gentle, but firm when she needs to be, she acts as the girl’s Jiminy Cricket in a way being their main source of council

Deep stuffYou know the feeling when you get into a bathbub and then you make all those life changing decisions and deep reflections on the world? I decided to share this one, I wonder how many of you can relate.Deep stuff6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I generally don't like people. All kinds. I'm a loner by choice. I like it this way. But I don't dislike/like any kind of people more than other kinds.
Well, look. Blonde or brunette, who cares? Black, white, asian, why the heck would I care? Be green if you were born that way. Judging for skin color is like judging for eye color. I may or may not have my preferences but I don't consider those who don't meet those preferences lesser human beings, And more importantly - I know that racism works both ways and I think it's as bad on both sides. It's a no gain-no gain. Think deep about it.

First off, I'm pleased to present Version 1.0 ...of Version 2.0. Bear with me, folks. This is a rough draft of our overhauled abilities listing to go with the new character sheets!
While there are likely to be some changes and revisions, this is certainly a big start for the new and improved SnB. In upcoming weeks, we'll be further updating the group with more information about our two new clans, new mechanics, and the big events planned for the future!
In the meantime, we're still on track for our group RP tomorrow! Details below!
The smell of beer and deep fried food is always overwhelming at the Grinning Dog, but today, there’s something a bit different in the air… the feral, predatory scent that lycanthropes carry ev
Pre-Event Conclusions + Bonus Bones!As some of you know, I'm a friend of :iconTeknicolorTiger: invited me to mod status to help with live RP long term for the group, and we got off the ground with a moderately successful first event, of which we had quite a bit of participation. While I've had more than a decade of GMing experience, its always nerve wracking and hectic trying to manage an RP for an entirely new group of people, especially with so few having live RP experience, and the GM a bit lacking in comfort with the universe, power levels, and nuances of the world.Pre-Event Conclusions + Bonus Bones!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, things did work out despite trying some very new things for a lot of people, and it wasn't too overwhelming to handle a moderate sized group (though I will suggest keeping the group sizes to a reasonable size for future events, especially as new people step into the role of GM). Some very typical concerns happened that come from people adjusting to the concepts of live RP, and some future discussion on how to make things simpler for o

Harseik: Happy bar? 8D
megatron888: i went to an all guy bar
Harseik: What color were the light fixtures?
megatron888: pink and i was wearing pink panties
Harseik: Pink probably isn't the best color for a proper light source. In fact, pink is rather close to the color red, which actually makes you feel angry. Did you know that McDonald's thought rather hard on their color scheme? Yellow is a color that tends to make people feel hungry, whilst red makes them irritated/impatient. Basically, the designers were influencing consumers to hungrily walk in, get their order, and quickly leave out of irritation.
megatron888: oh well i was wearing panties
Harseik: That reminds me of the British term for panties. They're called knickers over there. Knickers was derived from the word "knickerbockers", which is probably one of the coolest words ever conceived.

Silver and Bone Enemy CompendiumDemons - Non-human. Threat Level: Medium. Aggressive bodiless entities that are often drawn to werewolves due to their unusually high emittance of electromagnetic energy. They enjoy tormenting them to feed from their pain and mental instability. Demons are denizens of the Spirit Realm, but it is ill-advised to confront them on their home turf (if your character has a spirit form) as they are even more powerful there. Demons are not human souls trapped between worlds, but something completely different. Susceptible werewolf may be possessed or gradually worn down to insanity and eventually death. Often demons will show themselves in unassuming forms such as children or animals. Dispelling a demon is fairly easy however, and there are many methods depending on your chosen faith.Silver and Bone Enemy Compendium2 years ago in Personal More Like This

My ApologiesI've been inattentive, slow, and all around neglectful of things here.My Apologies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the past couple of weeks:
*My husband got a new job where they think a 15-hour day is acceptable (it's not, according to me).
*We had one of the cars lay down on it's vehicular death-bed ... it's still rolling, but it's on one spare tire and plain luck.
*My doctor decided *she* was in charge of my healthcare instead of me, and acted like a 13-year-old girl when I told her otherwise. Up to and including threatening me with medication I'm not supposed to take, referring me to specialists without my knowledge or consent, and accusing me of lying. It's been an uphill battle the whole way ... and I'm supposed to be keeping my stress level down!
*We had to get a new car. I'm waiting for the final call from the dealership today. I had thought that part was going to be harder, but my husband's aunt works for a dealership and was a tremendous help! It should all work out. And that means we are going to have a safe c
Fear of the DarkYou'd think darkness would be a friend, having spent more than 3/4 of my waking life during the wee hours.Fear of the Dark2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If there was an official Maximus motto it might be "the sun is trying to kill me!" or "daylight? what's that?" or possibly "pants are for losers". I seriously cannot remember the last time a whole day was spent outside beneath Sol's rays; it's been that long. But that's okay... owls and other nocturnal beasties do just fine under the cover of darkness.
But still, I fear it sometimes. Night is when the veil between real and unreal softens, when Things walk among us that normally stay away. I'm pretty sure this all started thousands of years ago before the invention of night-vision goggles and 24 hour Wal-Marts, but it's still true now. How many horror stories can you think of started out, "it was a bright and sunny day"?
I realized this personal disconnect -- my love for the night alongside my superstitious fear -- as a young adult. It came to a head when I moved into m

Arise, Sir BaldrickThe well known Blackadder duo, Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson (the titular Blackadder and his grotty henchman, Baldrick) have made the honours list.Arise, Sir Baldrick2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Robinson is to be Knighted in recognition of his public and political service, and Atkinson is being granted a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for his charity work.
A surprise, given that they're most well known for starring in a show that often mocked the monarchy. Though honours are recommended by her ministers, the Queen still approves them. Mind you, that she became a Bond girl during the 2012 Olympics does rather put to bed the question of her having a sense of humour.

As that celebration with my friends was postphoned, Sis and her family made a birthday cake just for me and celebrated it in that very private circle, singing birthday songs.
