Well, we made it to another Friday. My week, and the end of the week in general, has me thinking:

Sometimes things get overwhelming. Saving the world is as draining and frustrating as it is uplifting and invigorating; sometimes just plain old work gets utterly bogged down; even the nuts and bolts of being a supervillain can be unwieldy. How does your character maintain their drive and energy to achieve their goals?

The third play in the set that my guy William comes from is pretty much James III saying "Everyone in Europe is having a Renaissance and I want one too," and his wife saying "That's lovely dear but we can't afford a Renaissance."

So today's DE is: What would your characters splash out a fortune on, if only they had a fortune to splash around? For the fabulously wealthy characters, what's a big expenditure that they feel genuinely satisfied with?

I hope everyone's week is going well and not too horribly hot.

Eric and Pam have some very bad days.

The crew of the Ghost causes trouble and has serious discussions about what they're doing.

A creature is loose in Milliways.

This ended up a OOM heavy post so share what EPs and threads you've finished and are following.

Does your character keep some special object that their faith, destiny or goal can be focused on? It doesn't have to be religious, it could be deeply personal (in our pre-Millicanon, Galen keeping Jyn's toy stormtrooper) or a reminder of revenge (in the movie of LotR, Aragorn taking and wearing Boromir's glove). Keepsakes from lovers and statues of gods are of course a possibility, as well.


This daily entertainment post was inspired by the cuddly toy Bastet from the British Musuem which my actual living cats are now revering.

Hello, Tuesday in Milliways! Guess this is a new normal now. So, speaking of things becoming normal:

What traumatic experience has become normalized to your character?

Not that DEs are traumatic.

Subbing in again!

Has your character ever been stuck with a job or a task that they were really, really not suited for? How did it go? Was it a long-term thing, the whole premise of the character, or just a one-off WHY DID YOU ASK ME TO BABYSIT?!?! situation? .....Did they survive?

[personal profile] inlovewithwords  had so much fun with subbing last Friday they asked if they could pick up a DE day on a regular basis. Maru agreed to pass on her Tuesday, so welcome to our new DE Overlord Mod.

Salut à tous nos amis qui jouent ici ce 14 juillet. Je sais qu'ils ne sont pas vos jours (pour nos lecteurs, ceux sont le 5 juin et le 6 juin), mais je voulais le reconnaître tout de même. Vos santés.


Attendez...

Oops.

At least the high school skills haven't died completely?

Hi to all our friends who play here this Bastille Day. I know they're not your days (for our readers, those are the 5th and 6th of June), but I wanted to recognize it all the same. Your health.

In that spirit: what would your character defy authority--immediate or ultimate--for? What would your character die for?

What’s a subject where once someone gets your character started, they’ll talk your ear off? What’s something they will almost never talk about without a lot of work?

First off, Star Wars muns particularly those involved in the Rebellion, please open your comm channel.

In terms of this week, Milliways, lots of fascinating OOMs and hard days for lots of characters.

Barry continues to have tough days.

Chirrut and Baze get each other.

Rose and Poirot are charming.

Now what have you finished and have you been loving reading.

Wednesday DE: More ouch!

 What is medicine like in your character's world, and what is their attitude to it and its practitioners?

SO MANY BIRTHDAY MESSAGES yesterday! THANK YOU to all, for the texts, emails, FB posts, tweets and videos. Friends are amazing! You are great and I am so lucky! ♥

It was probably my most low-key birthday ever, and I'm fine with that -- it was still glorbious. I'd basically already bought all my presents for myself; in the morning, I made an actual effort to, like, work, for money and prestige, but my eyes gave up on my laptop screen and I just went off to Park Slope to wander for a bit and get some personal-project writing done.

The real highlight was meeting up with [personal profile] kaydeefalls for ramen at the best ramen hole-in-the-wall in New York, which she also introduced me to when I first moved here. I then tried every bright/outlandish/glittery lipstick in the Union Square MAC store (on my hand; most of it didn't come off) -- fun. Finally, we saw Spider-Man: Homecoming, a film I was groaning about when Spidey was (admittedly delightfully) shoehorned into Civil War last year. But like -- holy shit, I think that was actually the best Marvel movie that's not Winter Soldier??? HOLY SHIT, IT WAS JUST SO GREAT AND GOOD. I enjoyed it so much!!

Meanwhile, apparently I am getting political birthday presents from the Trump family? Oh my god, what on earth is even happening today, with Donnie Jr. literally tweeting the emails that show him trying to collude with the Russian government and failing?????!? I've spent most of this morning glued to Twitter and strongly contemplating a stress-nap ("My man actually Reynolds Pamphleted himself!" thank you, [twitter.com profile] eparillon). The other part of the morning I spent being vindicated and then increasingly horrified as my building super peeled away layers of paint to reveal a BIG FUCKOFF PIT OF ROTTED DRYWALL in my living room, as I've been saying for more than two years!!

And to conclude, wow, 33 is some ride so far, holy cats.

Tuesday DE: Ouch!

Talk a little about the injuries your character sustained, and the scars they have.

My errands were done much faster than I expected this morning, so after a bit of scribblin' I decided to see Spiderman: Homecoming.

First: trailers! The Dark Tower! (BWEE!!!) Some... other stuff! that I don't remember because it's not relevant to anything I'm a fan of! Justice League! which got an "Awesome!" from one very small audience member. I am there for Aquaman (I mean, the Momoa, come on) and Wonder Woman. Judgement reserved about the rest, though I like Ezra Miller a lot, so I'm willing to believe him as the Flash.

and here there be spoilers. capslocky spoilers )
