...so does that mean the game freeze will take place during the anniversary? That's kinda sucky. :-/
PS Harry's new icons make me giggle.
That's... a good question. Problem is that some people won't have the book finished yet and those who have will be absorbing new canon and the fact that it's over.
But maybe we could do another anon post
or something like was done around OotP release. We'll have to huddle and discuss what could be up for anniversaryness.
(Speaking as not-Harry, I have to majorly commend Harry-player for KILLING ME with those icons.)
(Also, view the comm and notice our SEXY MOOD THEME!)
Well, I for one will have finished it by then for sure! But another such post would be awesome indeed.
PS Hehe, I love the storge_mods
Indeed, many of us will devour it within 24 hours! By the way, did you notice potter_mouth
over on a recent snap cup? We need to check to see if it hit max comments yet, but if not...
(Thank you! It was originally created as a form letter invitation we could send to people-of-interest, and we loved the text so much that we wanted to make it publicly usable, too.)
Devour it, huh? Better buy two copies then!
Noooo, I did not notice but feel free to link me. Hope I'll get around to it before my upcoming vacation (which will be sadly internet-free).
Yes, books are tasty like that!
-- or here. It just felt right to caps it on behalf of HARRY.
One of us is overachieving and slowly working on tagging all the SC posts from start to now. Not exactly vacationing, eh?
Okay, I'm back from my mini-vacation and have given Harry compliments! The caps are indeed a nice touch, very fitting. ;-)
Props to one of you guys! That's super cool, not exactly vacationing but it sounds quite handy. I also really like the list of entries in the storger
journal, it's fun to browse.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back!... We shouldn't be singing.
One of Us thanks you for the props! Will get back to tagging eventually, but got distracted with the storger
listing since it's helpful for our new players/future applicants and the just-plain-nostalgic. Major plots TBA.
Sing away. ;-)
It's terribly nostalgic. The beginning of Camera/Fritzy, for instance! The Halloween Round Robin! The Macarena! Seamus and the blue beads! The Gay! Oh, the memories.
*smacks forehead* Just remembered to turn non-maintainer tagging on, otherwise nobody else can tag. D'oh!
And yes, meeeemooooorieeeeeees! Oh, how we loved those times! We got caught up last night in reading community lovefests. We forgot just how many people ordered WWVD? bracelets, and made so many fan icons, and general piles of snugs.
The Macarena is indeed one of the plot posts that will go up, but we neglected to track down a list of The Gay entries! That must be rectified!
That's right, the bracelets! And the Seams/beer/beads icons, and Pansy/Justin, and the Harry gifs where he's screaming about killing squirrels and eating dolphins and babies. Hee! (I just had a look through my icon folder, in case you couldn't tell.)
And I am such a ten-year-old but rectified made me giggle. I'm sleepy, okay?? ;-)
Yeeeee! Yes yes, got a lot of those delicious icons tagged the other night! nomeremuggle
went icon crazy and it was ftw.
And don't worry. I guess you didn't know, this game is entirely played by ten-year-olds. We're doing a readthrough together and snickering at all the unintentional innuendo.
Can you link me? I didn't save as many icons as I would have liked to, sadly.
Is that so? I have a whole new respect for ten-year-olds!
for the icon posts tagged so far. Can't remember if more are to come.
Yes, and they say education is dead! The interweb teaches us all!
Our original Filch player once got a fantastic spam mail from "Tom Riddle" and we probably should share that.
Thanks, I saved a bunch more. And then I spent like two hours browsing through old cadet and storger posts (THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF DEFRIENDING, etc), and went to bed very, very late.
Indeed you should. Sharing is caring!
Has there been a lot of player changing? There are a few I suspect haven't changed at all, and I'm curious. Also, am I talking to the same person as in the beginning, or am I conversing with multiple players?
THE HIIIIILLS ARE ALIIIIIIVE... Still many months of tagging to go, oi!
Well, over nearly 3 years, can't really have 100% player retention. People's lives change and they don't have time to play any more, or their interest wanes, etc. Sometimes we've silently made the replacements (not put them on our character application list). Many of the characters have never ever changed hands, though! And in several cases, a character whose original player quit has silently changed over to be played by another of the original player group. Few players had multiple characters at the start of the game because we had so many players at the start; there was no need!
You've just been hearing from one of the storge_mods
consistently in this thread, though. Hi!
I see. I figured as much but it's still a shame so many had to leave. I'm particularly mourning Goyle at the moment.
Good to know. Hello, consistent storger! :-)
Agreed, agreed! But alas, alas. We're pleased so many have been able to stay.
Hello, consistent comava!
As am I!
Not so consistent now, I'm afraid... I'm off to a music festival soon and then there's DH so I will have precious little time for the internets!
We're all a-flutter waiting for it, too!
Enjoy your music festival, and enjoy your DH!
(But do come back for storge, awww.)
