[ Wilson has a question, which he launches into basically without preamble. It's all for informational purposes, of course. ]

I realize this question might seem pointless, and it might not be an issue at all, but aside from the obvious things like hypothermia and frostbite, how would you all say the weather here affects you?

And as a sort of follow-up question, do any of you have vitamin D, or is that something not easily obtained around here?

[ He knows about requesting prescriptions, and it's something he'll probably try at some point, but he's just making a general inquiry. ]

Also, it might be worth mentioning that although I was an oncologist back home, if you have any medical complaints or questions, just let me know.

[ He might not be a general practitioner, but he's willing to make himself available in case anyone needs anything. ]

Good evening, everyone. I've been asked to deliver a message from another person in Norfinbury who's dealt with mind-control before.

"To the converted; remember that name that they gave you, because it's what they did to you, they converted you from what you were. It might have been them controlling your thoughts and actions, but it was your hands that got blood on them, and that comes with guilt and blame. That's good, it proves you're human, proves you're not what they tried to make you, because you do care about the pain that was inflicted.

It doesn't make you a monster, and it doesn't make you irredeemable.

Trust me, I've lived this. There are still good parts of you, the parts of you back now that you lost, and that's enough to fight for. We lack the right to give up and take the easy way out, the only way to erase even some of that blood is to fight back. So fight."

If anyone needs to talk, I'll be available.

TEST DRIVE MEME

If you'd like to apply to Snowblind and would like to test the waters first or get a sample set up for your application, this meme is for you! We've even provided some prompts for you to use if you want (but feel free to make up your own). Here's how it works.
✭ Reply to this entry with a character you're considering apping into the game. You can include the name of your character and the fandom in your subject line.
✭ Comment around to others on the meme, whether you're in the game already or not.
✭ Now you have a sample ready for your application!
✭ So go reserve and apply when reservations and applications are open.
✭ Seriously, do it.


Network Prompts
ONE: WE ALL FLOAT DOWN HERE
You're taking your first leap down into the underground tunnels, glad for a break from snowy travel. Everything is going well at first, but then...You see something up ahead. Something colorful? It's hard to tell what it is, but as you cautiously approach it becomes more obvious: a single, floating balloon. There's a curled piece of paper tied delicately to the end of the string. If you dare to read it, it provides you with a simple message:

h͙̟͝e͏͉͍l̯͔͍̩̼̫̣l̢̥̥̩̥̞͓o͘

Or maybe it's something different. No matter what it is, you don't feel very good after reading it. Maybe you should turn to the Network for comfort. Even if they don't have any explanation, at least you might feel a bit better not being completely alone down here.

TWO: THE BEST MEDICINE
Today, you found an SD card for your troubles. It downloaded an app to your tablet titled JOKES.EXE. Figuring you could use a laugh, you opened it to see what it contained. Screen after screen, it generates for you a joke. Once you tap on the lead-in, it delivers the punchline. Only...These jokes aren't really that funny. In fact, they're kind of unsettling. Like someone went out of their way to put a dark spin on them.

The little boy was disappointed he couldn't go to the family restaurant for his birthday party.

He'd already killed his family.


Yeah, that's enough. You put the jokes out of your mind. It's not like it's going to hurt anything. At least that's what you think, until the jokes start inserting themselves into the text you write to others on the Network. Switching to voice or video doesn't help, either. Even though you aren't making any jokes, if you play back your feed, you'll find yourself saying them. Hopefully you don't offend someone during the time it takes you to find a way to uninstall the app.


Action Prompts
THREE: INSIDE JOKE
Overall, you'd say it's been a pretty peaceful night. You try and go to sleep before your traveling companion, knowing that the light of their tablet won't bother you. The real problem is that every time you're about to drift off, they start laughing. Sometimes it's a muted giggle underneath their breath, as if they read something funny, but other times the laughter is outright and uncontained. After awhile you have to ask them to be more respectful and quiet down, but when you sit up and look their way, they only seem confused.

What are you talking about? Of course they weren't laughing. They thought you were the one laughing in your sleep.

FOUR: EVERY NIGHTMARE YOU'VE EVER HAD
It's quite likely that neither you nor your traveling companion was very happy to find themselves stuck in the house with all the clown decorations just before lockdown. But there's no time to find new lodging now, and being uncomfortable is definitely preferable to being frozen, so here you're going to have to suck it up and stay. The only problem is that you feel like there's someone else in the building with you, watching from just out of sight. It sends a paranoid chill down your spine--you're sure you've checked the house top to bottom already, and there wasn't any trace of anyone else--and is it just you, or does that clown statue look disturbingly lifelike?

You get closer, but it isn't breathing, and the eyes are glassy. But wait, that one over there...it wasn't there before, was it? Or, did you just see a spotted piece of fabric move out of the corner of your eye? You can't shake the feeling that one of these clowns is more than just a decoration, but no matter how hard either of you try, you can't seem to find the culprit. Maybe it really is just your imagination running wild, but still, how are you supposed to get any sleep like this?

Harley Quinn

+1 crazy ex-girlfriend  
Hey everybody! My name is Amanda and I'm new to the game. I'm bringing in Harley Quinn from DC Comics. Her canon point is just past Gotham City Sirens #17, so she hasn't been the Joker's biggest fan for some time now.

I also know you've just lost a Harley so if there are any previous encounters or CR that you want to give me a heads-up on then please do. She'll be surprised to learn that she's been here before, but then again, alternate universes are no longer foreign to her after some shenanigans in Countdown to Final Crisis.

She'll be starting off in C31 on day 269.

You can feel free to add me on plurk @ [plurk.com profile] phurbur. I look forward to playing with you guys!

hi its magenta magenta bringing you some NEWS

first off i would love to publicaly say that while i would still very much love to do some things to yalls friend (apparently??? why are yall friends with him) america i have made the single decision all on my lonesome to leave him alone for the time being. i am saying this here for acountability so yall cant get on me if he suddenly decides to die. if that happens i didnt do a damn thing

that being said if the motherfucker tries to find me i will not be responsible for anything that may happen so jot that down

nextly ive been doing some thinking

(i am always doing some thinking)

and i have decided that i will go down into THESE TUNNELS to get down to the most dangerous parts of this place. u ask why??? because i am very strong and the only thing im good at is hurting things and i was told i could maybe hurt things (that im allowed to hurt) if i head down to where all the action is

which brings me to : i would like to learn some new things. i dont know very many things besides a. killing people b. facts about airplanes and c. how to cook and i would very muchly like some new skills. can anyone sew for example

thank you for the help

love you all (except a few. yall know who you are. motherfuckers)

There's an extremely important poll I need everyone to participate in right now.

What's cooler, a space pirate or wizard?

Your answers--should they be correct--will help immensely. Thank you.

Also I'm really glad that you guys got out of Torturecorp. Offer's always on the table for music trades.

ALRIGHT, SO I TOOK THE MAINTENANCE TUNNELS FROM THE RADIATION ZONE UP THROUGH TO THE NORTHWEST RESIDENTIAL AREA. I HAVEN'T SEEN ANYONE ELSE MENTION THIS SHIT SPECIFICALLY YET, SO HERE'S A BASIC OVERVIEW OF WHAT I FOUND:

1. A WHOLE FUCKLOAD OF NOTHING. THERE ARE NO SUPPLIES DOWN THERE SO DON'T BOTHER CHECKING. THERE DIDN'T SEEM TO BE ANY ANOMALIES EITHER, BUT I DON'T WANNA JINX THAT? SO BE CAREFUL.

2. YOU CAN TRAVEL AND STAY IN THEM OVERNIGHT. BE FREE FROM THE CONFINES IMPOSED BY SNOWHELL'S INFURIATING LOCKDOWN. GOD THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A THING SOONER, WHY WERE THE TUNNELS EVEN *LOCKED* WHEN THEY'RE THIS USEFUL? IT'S NONSENSICAL.

3. THERE IS A GIGANTIC FUCKING MAZE UP NORTH WITH A TRULY ABSURD ABOUT OF TWISTS, TURNS, AND DEAD ENDS. I *THINK* IT'S ROUGHLY UNDERNEATH THE SPLIT TUNNELS? SOMEWHERE AROUND THERE. I TOOK THE LIBERTY OF MARKING OFF WHERE THE DEAD ENDS ARE, BUT WHO KNOWS IF THOSE SIGNS ARE STILL UP. I HAVEN'T GONE BACK TO CHECK BECAUSE I'M FUCKING BUSY, SO IF THEY'RE MISSING NOW, SORRY, AND IF THEY'RE NOT, YOU'RE WELCOME.

OH, AND 4. THERE ARE NO GODDAMN LIGHTS DOWN THERE, SO BE SURE TO BRING A HANDHELD ILLUMINATION DEVICE OR SOMETHING. THE LIGHT FROM YOUR TABLET SHOULD HELP BUT IF YOU'RE TRAVELING WITH PEOPLE IT'S BETTER TO HAVE TWO OR MORE OUT SO YOU DON'T GET FUCKING LOST.

I HAVE SOME PICTURES, BUT THERE'S NOT MUCH TO SEE DOWN THERE. OH, AND IF ANYONE ELSE HAS SOME EXPERIENCES OR INFORMATION TO SHARE, YOU MIGHT AS WELL DO IT HERE SO IT'S ALL IN ONE PLACE? AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, BUT I HAVEN'T BEEN THROUGH THE WHOLE THING SO SOMEONE ELSE MIGHT HAVE TO ANSWER OR WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT AND FIND OUT.


[And, as promised, he'll be including some pictures of the tunnels, the hubs, and a few of his scrawled warnings about an upcoming dead end. In some of the shots, a pair of luminescent cat eyes can be seen peering through the dark; others are lit up by a tablet or the flickering flame of a solitary lighter.]

The Cat sometimes known as Pounce
06 August 2017 @ 05:07 pm
[log] Let us guide you home [closed]  
Characters: The Cat, Karkat and Davesprite
Location: K11 - 56
Date: Day 266
Summary: Reunion
Warnings: Discussion of torture

56: All that's left of this house that can withstand the elements is a large master bedroom and its attached bathroom and walk-in closet. The bathtub is a small one, but it has hot water long enough to fill the bathtub once a day. The walk-in closet is windowless and dark--if there was a place for a light, it's long-since vanished--but near the back is a sealed up trapdoor. There's a dent in the wall next to the door, as if someone had slammed the door open very roughly. The floor has been nearly ruined, with only metal and scorched facade remaining. The trap door is a tightly sealed contraption, but in the darkness, it's possible to see glowing red on the floor that the more standard flooring used to cover. It's impossible to tell what it's coming from.

"ALPHONSE ELRIC AND TADASHI HAMADA, DAY TEN, TRAVELLING EAST" is written on the wall inside. There's a large blue smear on the wall. "ALFIE SOLOMONS, 1922. Camden Town, London, England, UK, Europe, Earth. Day 187, March 17 or March 18." has been carved into the wall.
