FtVS is Closing.



I'm going to keep this as short as I possibly can, because I'm having a hard time phrasing it correctly. I've gotten to the point where I've burnt out on roleplaying. I told Kate about this not long ago, and a few other people. I have the intention to quit roleplaying altogether in June.

Kate and I have decided that it's difficult to become invested in a game when you know it's going to end. Other people seem to share the sentiments. So, extremely unfortunately, FtVS is going to close. I apologise so much to everyone who has invested themselves in this game and feels that they're being given the short end of the stick here. We will keep the community open for one more week in order to give you time to finish up threads and dialogue. For you to do whatever it is that you need to do before you feel done with it. Thank you guys for joining the game, for being such wonderful writers, for all of the time that you have spent on FtVS. Seriously.

The community will not be deleted. I will be making a final Faith post, and ftvs will always be around for reference. I'm so unbelievably sad to cut this game short. It just seems to be what has to happen. It's hard for others to post when they know that it's going to end in a few months.

Love,
Lori / Faith

I'm sorry to anyone I had threads with (Lori and Kate), as I have been pretty non-responsive for a while now. This past week has been hell for me, what with a new earlier split shift at work, and the start of Spring semester. My stupid work had me down in San Diego for some BS workshop Saturday morning, and then I stayed down with my family at my grandma's in Imperial Beach for the remainder of the day, since one bro and one sis had come down from Arizona for the weekend. They left early this morning (to get a head start on the six hour drive), so my sister and I just came back up rather than hanging around to go to church. My grandparents are freakishly religious, and as fun as Catholic mass was looking .. yeah. I would have probably burned if I even tried to set foot inside. I will get Spike and Chris replies up today. <3.

I was just wondering if Gunn was going to come by and interact with Oz? If not, that is not problem, I just need to do another post somewhere. Thanks!

Kat!mun,

Should Lindsey know Samantha Silverstone? I can't find anywhere that reminds me who she is. Can you link me or at least give me the ep so I can watch her?

Thanks, Jason

As you all saw, I wrote an Oz post. I am not sure if anyone else wants to interact or if everyone else already has a thread they are working on, but I just wanted to let y'all know that I was up for anything. I did not make a plan ahead of time, so come and interact with my grumpy werewolf.

We Should All Be Doing What Rachel Bilson is Doing in My Icon. [20 Dec 2004|12:23am]

[ mood | bored ]

Well, we've found that we have hit a bit of a roadblock involving what is to happen at the Blue Moon. We have a few things going on, but after that, it's all a bit confused. I certainly have no idea where to take Faith after she crashes post-friendly chat with Spike, and what I know of the events to happen between characters that are upstairs (in the shop area- or those not there at all) is a bit mixed. I think that it would behoove us all to have another plot session via AIM so that we might get our shit together, rather than going about things blindly. If I'm the only one confused on what is supposed to be going down, feel free to tell me that I'm a complete moron, but I really don't think that I am. Not now, at least. And even if everyone knows what is to happen within the next few hours of the game, some long-term plots really ought to be worked out. Especially with a new character in the game. And so I repeat: a plot session over AIM would be a positive thing. Let's have one, please?

That said, how does everyone feel about Tuesday, sometime after 8 EST?

Much Love,
Lori

Hello all, my name is Jason, I'm a friend of Amy!mun. I been given the honor of joining your game with Lindsay McDonald. This is post evil hand Lindsay and post tattoo Lindsay (which will be in the first post) but pre-with Eve back in LA Lindsay.

With his background with Faith, he'll probably not be welcomed by the good guys, so off to the evil side he will go. Or third party, whatever :)

I have a year of Harry Potter RP and eight years of table top experience to bring. So, anyone, feel free to play, I hear that sometimes I'm fun to play with.

AIM is pollyjuiceboy

I posted this in my HP Comm at first, like a retard. And sorry, Chris, I thought you knew. <3. I understand the busy this week anyway. I meant later.. after the giving of thanks.

What I had said was "Considering that this RP is pretty much in real time, we should probably recognize the fact that Thanksgiving is around.

Maybe we should say that it's in a couple of days? Or a week? Or.. maybe that's too much, and we'd get behind? Am I just being a little dorky? Also, Christmas. I think it'd be cute if we had them do.. stuff. Like get each other presents. Their Thanksgiving would probably consist of a can of spray cheese and some crackers, but still.. teh cute.

I'll shut up now."

.. So I suck. And feel uber retarded. I'm going to go cry now. Well.. I'm actually going to drown my sorrows in leftover pie.

I think that I'm going to do another Faith post, one that is set after the Anydrew thread is over, which will have Faith upstairs opening up the shop (because Andrew slept a little too long and went into the shower later, perhaps?) so that Andy can come up and maybe she can be a little more awake and a little nicer to him.

And then we will have Kat and Jess show, and Faith will be all "meh, go away." and go down to see Spike. After the shower, she's going to be more awake and so will probably end up crashing at like, noon. Voila.

Does this sound cool with everyone? Kate, would you rather that I have Faith wake Andy up from his dream, then they go upstairs because they hear a knocking on the door (and we can be all like "the store was supposed to have been opened 15 minutes ago, and there was a customer waiting") and it can be a normal customer- and while that person browses, Faith is nicer to Andy (because I really think that she needs to be, at least a little. Poor depresso boy) and then not long after Kat and Jess enter (perhaps having seen the customer, and figuring that they can go in, then, but waiting a little to not seem as if they were just hanging around?), and everything goes as previously stated?

That's it, choices one and two. Or you can come up with a new one. I'll write the post tomorrow evening, after I've gotten feedback from you cool kids. Now, I hit the hay.

Night!

Continuity, dammit. [20 Nov 2004|07:41am]

burninating
Aw crap. The timing is all fucked up, and I can't fix it, so I'm not going to. We have 900 simultaneously occuring plots. So, this is how I am proceding, for my own sanity:

OOO

1. Andrew is in bed.
2. Oz stays up, gets a call from the police.
3. Faith gets home, but Oz doesn't notice her passed on on the counter.
4. Oz wants to tell Andrew, but, inexplicably decides to tell everyone in the morning. (Sorry, Brandy.)
5. Andrew wakes up early, gets Faith up.
6. Faith thread goes where it wilt.
6a. Jess and Kat come into the Blue Moon? Faith decides she can't deal with more slayer bitchez.
7. Opening the store, Oz can tell Andrew and whoever else is there about the ded peeple.

OOO

1. Kat and Jess are outside the store, in the morning, right?
2. They go in, eventually, and get put off by Faith.
3. Perhaps they are there to hear about the ded poppels.
4. Might be a good time for them to infiltrate the Noobie gang.
5. If Jenn wants to steal that crystal, I think she should maybe come back another night. This night is already kind of hosed.

OOO

1. Lara gets her ass kicked.
2. Faith and Gunn go out for burgers.
3. Lara gets picked up by Kenny.
4. Kenny is sent out to find Chris at any cost.
5. Chris is with Anya. He bails and goes back to the hotel.
6. Anya ... uh? What does she do?
7. Eventually, Chris will need to get to the Blue Moon to try and procure more/better supplies.
8. Who is going to connect Chris to Lara, or is Chris going to connect the Blue Moon to Faith?
8a. Is he going to tell Andrew about the love spell?

OOO

1. Andrew will call Amy to tell her about the ded poopel.
2. If Amy can pull it off, she should try and nab Michael's job as resident witchclerk.
3. Fun coven/covert stuff, including but not limited to: being covert, Andrew confronting Amy about the love spell, Amy being an evil bitch and her remorse/no remorse, tidy/sloppy reorganization and restructuring of power scheme, Kelne mastaplan speculation?

I'm not even trying to claim that this is how things SHOULD go -- I'm just having a hard time keeping the timing consistent, and we have all this big shit coming down at one time.

Okay? I should have drank some coffee before I used my brain that much about non-linear storylines. Sorry if I fuct with anyone's cha-chat. I'm tryeen. Y'all are real purdy.

Heya ladies of the eighties (I am having a Beastie Boy day, you wanna make something of it?):

I just made an Oz post. Hope it is okay. If it needs any changes or you have any ideas, let me know! Open to Andrew, then whoever. Oz might let loose with his big secret to Andrew...

All right, I've got to leave in about 30 minutes and leave the computer in 5, so Chris, when I come back perhaps we can do the Faith/Gunn rp parts of the post (if you want to?) and I'll insert them later? It looks fine without them there. Kate, feel free to reply and stuff. I won't be replying to anything till a late-ish later tomorrow night.

[ mood | exhausted ]

I'm way too tired to do a decent post, as I got home from work not that long ago, and have been trying desperately to play catch up and am still not caught up -- I will be putting up a Faith post tomorrow, though.

Basically, Kate and I discussed it and I am pretty sure that things are going to go as follows:


  • Now that the fight with Lara has ended, Faith and Gunn may go out and get something to eat at a 24 hour diner, discuss stuff, and then return. Faith is actually pretty beat up, and she's going to be feeling pretty shitty. We were thinking that Gunn would offer to help her to bed or something, but she'd be all "nah, i'm cool." And end up passing out from fatigue on the counter of the Blue Moon. - Chris, I was hoping that we could AIM this part, rather than do a thread for it, and I can put it in my Faith post?

  • Once Faith's all passed out, Andy wakes up after his brief sleep to open the shop and finds her being all sleeping beat up beauty on the counter. He wakes her and plays nurse. Kat and Jessica show, and as Faith is feeling like shit and is way tired of the new Slayers at this moment, she tells Andrew to deal with it and goes downstairs.

  • Where she meets Spike. They have their meaningful moment. Woooo.

  • At the same time, I'm guessing that Kat/Andrew/Jess are going to have a thread going. And there is also the whole Oz finding out about Michael and Tamara, passing on the news to Andrew, and Andy passing it to Amy... etc, etc.



Um, yeah. Cool? If I'm missing something, kick my ass. I'll be posting tomorrow. I won't be home after 9 EST, though, and I get home from work at 8. So I need to do all this AIM RP (Faith and Gunn, I meant, if you're around, Chris) and then posting the edited thing I write in that hour, because I won't be around at all during the rest of the day, either. But I'll have spare time to write up the Faith post in my notebook, so you all should expect it tomorrow. If it doesn't happen then, it definitely will on Friday. These next few days are just very busy for me. I apologize for slowing everything down, but I will do my best to make the time for it. :/

Hey There, Soldiers, Get in Line. Just a little rambling. [13 Nov 2004|08:28pm]

[ mood | predatory ]

I'd like to commend Brian on being brave enough to put that post up. And all of you for not getting mad, because I thought that at least someone might. Ratios, etc. And also Kate, for her previous efforts. If any of you ever feel like doing the nudging thing, then by all means, do it. I am admittedly a very poor moderator when it comes to FtVS, and there's no use arguing otherwise. And while I may indeed be very busy, so is everyone else -- meaning that such an excuse can only take me so far. In the wake of modding Priori, all of my Buffy games have been left in the vampire dust.

That's going to change, especially with FtVS. Even if doing everything that I do causes me to pass out, it's all going to get done, and in a timely fashion. No more threads that take a month to do, no more farting around and amusing myself with icons while I owe comments (not that i often do this, but sometimes is bad enough). It's unfair to everyone else, to you guys and I really do love this game. Capital L-O-V-E, even. Even now, I owe a Faith comment to Lara -- in fact, I've owed it for two days, and on both days have promised to get it done before bed -- then, both days, forgotten because it wasn't in my inbox.

No more of that, either. From now on, to do lists. From now on, FtVS - you all, are a (bigger!) priority. I also was thinking about how, although everyone is adult, the moderators really do need to set an example. If the mods aren't active and hardly do anything in game without being almost forced to do so, why would the players? They could simply say "well you didn't," or figure that the game was hitch hiking to Dead Town, if you catch my drift. Kate makes a fine example of a great mod, but I, not so much. If I'm not going to be a good player and I'm a mod, I certainly can't reasonably expect you all to be. So that's going to change. I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to do it, and I hope that some of you are willing to make the same pledge. I appreciate you guys. And should there be any heat over the aforementioned nudging, you will answer to me.

- Lori

Hi. [12 Nov 2004|04:02pm]

cockney
[ mood | stressed ]

I'm back and everything. Feeling much better, thanks for asking. Oh, wow, this game has not moved since I left (not pointing fingers or anything, because one of my own games (city_of_angel) hasn't gone anywhere, either. Listen up, bichez. I love ftvs like um .. my own child, and it makes me sad that there is little to no activity here. Yes, I have contributed to said inactivity, but .. uhh, let's just disregard that for the time being. Kate has been working hard to keep things moving and fun for all involved, but there is only so much that she can do to nudge everyone into being more active. Lori is busybusy, which is understandable, but this is my out-of-place attempt to nudge everyone again.

By the way .. belated!hi, Christina!! Welcome to the game!

That said, here is my last ditch effort to help with the nudging in the right direction. I know it isn't my place, and I hope I don't piss anyone off in the process, so if I do I am sorry. I know I am the farthest thing from posty-boy, but I am making steps toward rectifying that. We all worked out some good ideas in our group chat way back when .. but we have yet to integrate any of the ideas brought up there in-game. I know, people are busy, but this is just like a friendly reminder, in case some people have forgotten .. or, um, need a little bit of guidance with what to do.

Aside from busy-ness, not knowing what to do with your characters is probably the biggest contributor to not-posting. We can change this! Take charge of your characters, and make something happen that you want to happen. Now, I do these little summaries over at city_of_angel when I actually get around to modding over there, so I figured it might help to do that here. Feel free to reply with feedback, positive or negative .. ideas that you might have in light of what was discussed during the group chat, or anything else. They are your characters, after all. I am just trying to give everyone the springboard it seems we all need lately. That said ..

If this game dies, somebody is getting cut ..Collapse )

Brian dear messaged me this morning and asked me to pass this along.

He is uber sick right now, and probably will not be able to post until he is feeling better. So everyone send him warm fuzzy thoughts of healing. And apologies if you're one of the ones who may be waiting on him.

Hey you guys, I'm going out of town for the Halloween weekend, so I'll be gone from Friday to sometime Monday afteroon or evening. Then I have to go home on Tuesday to vote, because I'm registered in my home county and the not the county I currently live in. (only a two hour drive, so it's not that big of a deal) So I don't know how much I'll be around on that day either, since I may stay at home for the day. Especaially if home cooking is involved. In short, I'll definately be back in action by Wednesday morning, maybe earlier depending on how things go.

Amy here's not really doing anything, so it shouldn't hold anyone up, but just thought I'd drop an FYI ;-)
