Harry Potter and the Deathly Spoilers!

Essentially, I'm just posting this to let the two of you who still watch us know, in case we failed to make ourselves clear (which we often do) by the usage of the word "spoil" in our posts, that storge_space will now contain spoilers for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Anyway, abandon hope, all ye who enter there!

And also, I just wanted to let you know that we've recruited some new players recently. This is giving us false hopes that we may have the good times back, the days when spacecadets was not run by us (that's so lame, even I feel pangs of shame about it, and I'm into public nudity), and when people who were not us actually posted here.

Anyway, enough about my sorrows and melancholy and depression and angst! What about YOU?

Dear spacecadets,

Your friends at storge_space would like to issue our humblest apologies for Livejournal being entirely offline for almost all of July 24, 2007. Posting, friends lists, you name it-- all services were down. We did not anticipate this and thus had not made adequate backup provisions to keep the servers up. We hope that Livejournal service may be more reliable in the future.

After a careful examination, it appears that our wild and passionate third anniversary celebrations were "TOO HOT FOR LJ!" and the servers crashed attempting to handle our sizeable load. Servers remained offline as we traded nostalgic remembrances, rekindled old romances, and made plans for our bright futures together. The power of love knocked out electricity across a large area of San Francisco and disrupted SixApart's services, as well as quite a number of internet services beyond that. Some people have reported witnessing explosions as we ecstatically coupled. It unfortunately took several hours to restore power and bring services back up.

We're especially ashamed that those of you anticipating our hot anniversary postings were instead treated to a lack of services. We had really cool plans for this grandest of grand days, but they will have to happen in the following days instead.

Again, please accept our sincerest and humblest apologies. We beg your forgiveness and will try to be less destructive in our future anniversary celebrations. We prost(r)ate ourselves before you in hopes that you will find it in your heart of hearts to forgive us. If we could wave a magic wand to fix it, we would. Please be advised of upcoming Deathly Hallows spoiler content and adjust your reading if needed. Hopefully services remain online to get to that.

With the deepest sense of guilty responsibility and great feelings of personal pain and anguish,

The Storge Team

Hey Macaroni!


In the words of potter_mouth:


Rather, go see our journal because we posted some totally sexy material to it. It was originally all in waitingfortom's memories but she weirdly friends-locked them, so finally all this compilation stuff is getting a use. A sexy use. Plus we TOTALLY RE-FOUND THE ANIMATED MACARENA MACARONI, still-gif-no-more! SO SEXY!

And on behalf of storge_mods, here's what's going on with them: they also gave this comm a slight face lift, added a really sexy mood theme set by kaeda which really should've been put in last year when she made it, and there's now a sloooow SC tag project. Only July - August 2004 are done so far. If you're in a nostalgic mood and have a strange love of tagging, we'd love the help. Going through posts helped to relocate the hot storger/cadets icon by nomeremuggle which now sits as the community icon.

So basically, things are sexy. What's going on with y'all, huh? We're nostalgic for the old days of community chatter ;( It made us feel special and loved and energized and we could slip in comments/plots aimed at entertaining you guys and giving you something to theorize about and stuff. Basically, this storger is wondering if anyone still reads us but is just quiet about it.

A belated toast to three years since the close of nocturne_alley, the amazing RPG that helped inspire the creation (and obviously the format) of this game. We originally came together through our love of NA and owe it quite a debt for inspiring us and introducing us. Though many of our original players have since moved on to RL obligations, those that remain (or came around later) salute you, NA!

Speaking of three years, we're coming up on a three year anniversary of our own. July 24 will be our very own three year anniversary of the start of our game! Joy!

With the upcoming release of Deathly Hallows, we anticipate having a game freeze as we did following HBP, following a period where we'll post veiled "SPOILER WARNING!" notices so you can avoid continuing to the comments which will definitely have spoilers in them. We'll recommend, however, that you abstain from storge_space after the DH release until you've also read the book. Get your doctor's permission to storge while pregnant.

storger has friended everyone on the storge watchlist and watchers/members here in order to help get a count of our current readerbase. Don't be alarmed! Storgers don't bite. Usually. You'll also see some of us in thedressingroom from time-to-time cracking up a, um, crackstorm.

Also, just a reminder that we still welcome character applications and have recently filled one of the roles. Our thanks to rpg_prophet for accepting our advertisement request.

Americans, happy Neville/Parvati angst anniversary!

Snoodle is temporarily offline due to its webhost's crappy payment rejection issues, but it will return as soon as we arrange other hosting. We have all the content backed up (with the possible exception of the message boards) and will post a glorious old-new two-part fic when it returns. We regret that we missed posting it over a year ago when it was written, but we'll correct that and pretend it's part of a "Welcome back, Snoodle!" thing.

A rare SC post thanks to Strikethrough 2007

Heads up, true believers!

Since some RPG villain journals have been deleted in other games, our little warning radars went off and we went to work. We've made a run through various interests that we were concerned could become flags someday and we've updated the community information to remove possibly questionable comments, like the game not being "safe for children" and being interested in "trelawney's balls." (It now reads trelawney's crystal balls, mind you.) We added some more to the disclaimer, too. And to be extra-safe, we made backups of several individual journals (villains, HARRY DANGER POTTER), storge_space itself, and the wizard_wank community. But we wouldn't mind some outside eyes giving it a look-over to make sure we didn't miss anything that could seem problematic.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled "What is Livejournal doing NOW?!" crisis and hope that none of you lost a journal or community to it. I mean, damn, they took pornish_pixies!

Hey guys, remember us?


Look, guys. I know it's been a while since we were together. I know, sometimes it seems like we don't love you anymore. We've been on the bottle for a while. We've fallen in a downward spiral of gambling, of sex, of drugs, and what is it? Meaningless.

But now we are on the path to reform. With news of the imminent arrival of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, our destroyer (July 21st in a bookstore near you!), we have embarked upon a 12-Step Recovery Program.

1. We admitted we were powerless over our laziness--that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a wizard greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of storge_space as we understood It.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. This is not a joke.
5. Admitted to Our Dumbledore, to ourselves, and to spacecadets the exact nature of our wrongs. We are lazy.
6. Were entirely ready to have storge_space remove all these defects of character. We took a course. Most of us failed out though, because we didn't do the homework.
7. Humbly asked Dumbledore to remove our shortcomings by drinking them even though the goblet keeps refilling itself and he'll die at the end of the book anyway.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. The list of persons is storge_space and spacecadets. Click the userinfo and you shall see it with great clarity.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. Sorry.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. Like right now...we're so wrong.
11. Sought through asking for your help, in possibly applying to the game as one of our much-needed characters in the spirit of New Potterism (you can go here for that information), or at least voting in the poll to rpg_prophet here, which we believe would revive us, and plus for some reason they seem to like us there.
12. We're still working on the spiritual awakening.

So...what do you say?

Speak to me, my lovers. It has been far too long. At least share with us few and proud remaining your enthusiasm for book 7 in the comments, because it would make us feel toasty. Our cockles will be warmed in this, the coldest time of the year. Unless you are in the Western Hemisphere, in which case, don't even talk about it.
