iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze smiling (smile)
[personal profile] iprotectyou posting in [community profile] ways_back_room
Despite Baze's initial protests, he and Chirrut have erected a sign warning bar patrons in several languages that the sun burns. The sign is located on the border between the lake and the beach.

The languages are as follows, courtesy of Google Translate Bar's help:
Aurebesh (Galactic Basic): Beware of burning from the merciless sun
English: Beware the burn of merciless sun
French: Méfiez-vous de brûler du soleil impitoyable (Beware of burning the ruthless sun)
Russian: Остерегайтесь ожогов от беспощадного солнца (Beware of burns from the merciless sun)
Japanese: 無慈悲な太陽から燃えることに注意してください (Please be aware that it burns from a ruthless sun)
German: Hütet euch vor dem Brennen von der gnadenlosen Sonne (Beware of burning from the merciless sun)

Is there some bit of canon or plot that you are ignoring as it is a stupid-assed decision?

Bonus question: I recently noticed my profile for a pup was woefully out of date and needed reworking. Post in with your pups and we'll review their profile and offer any suggestions we might have.

What would your character as a child--say, age 10--think about what's going on with your character nowadays? What would your character five years ago think if they could look ahead to the present?

I hope that the heat isn't being too difficult for anyone, heat and humidity are awful.

Pam is angry, Baze and others don't help.

Hera and Kanan try to get ready for what might happen next.

Eden tries to improve.

Now what are you loving and finishing. I had a wonderful family visit but I'm glad to be back.

 Sorry for the lack of DE yesterday: I was in ITIL class when the alarm went off, and just forgot afterwards because, hoo boy, ITIL.

So, DE for today inspired by last post on the comm: your character gets attacked by a) an axe crazy, b) an Internet troll c) some religious or political loony taking umbrage at them in RL. What do they do?

Good read. Just finished it last night.

Did anyone else find Dr Webb really, REALLY unethical, or was it just me?

Fight Club update

notapilot: (s: fight club (happy))
[personal profile] notapilot posting in [community profile] ways_back_room
I bet y'all have missed the chance to hit each other in a Security approved environment haven't you? I know I've missed watching it. It's been, what, a few months since an official fight club? Well, RL came up and kind of mugged me, which ruined any thread slots I had available.

But fear not, there is another!

Sahaal ([personal profile] exiled_heir_of_the_eighth)'s mun was asking about fight club and what when into running it, and has decided it is a thing they can help with! Accolades and cheers for them! Rules might shift a little in wording as a different character writes the rules, but the one rule of fight club (both OOC and IC) stays the same, Security is the only party that can forcibly break up a fight. Characters can try words and reason, but only an official Security pup can step in to break up the fight is the sparring turns ugly.

So dust off your gloves, oil your swords, and sharpen your spears, fight club should be back soon.

Welcome to another week. May you crush your to do lists and have fun!

For today's topic...it's been hot, like stuck to the vinyl, itchy skin, burning eyes hot. Or your pup just got through with a big fight with someone they care about. Or they know they need to have a talk with said person, but are dreading a fight. Or there is a thing that needs doing but they can't do it quite yet...either way, whatever the cause, your pup is feeling anxious and stressed. What do they do to try and calm themselves?

Eight Book Minimum: This edition brought to you by Fangirl Happy Hour.

Some of you may know that I do the transcripts for [personal profile] renay and [twitter.com profile] booksmugglers's podcast, Fangirl Happy Hour. This is where it really starts to show up in my reading. It turns out that if I read the books they're gonna be talking about, I know how to spell everyone's names! And don't get spoiled, but no, seriously, being able to spell all of the character names is my favourite thing and makes everything infinitely less stressful, 10/10 would recommend.

... Of course, now [personal profile] renay can use her powers for evil to get me to read all the stuff she's recced to me over the years, but no one tell her that.

Hey, has anyone else been getting this error message sometimes when trying to load the main bar community?

error message

I've been periodically getting it for a few months now. Sometimes refreshing will make the community actually load, and sometimes it won't. Is this just a problem on my end, and if so, anyone have ideas on how to fix it?

Friday DE: Worlds mapping

Eh...it's midnight somewhere and my morning promises to be busy. Have an early DE.

I just recently finished Seanon McGuire's Every Heart a Doorway, which is a sort of love letter to the many portal fantasy stories of literature. In it, there is a classification system for the various portal worlds:
"Here in the so-called “real world” you have north, south, east, and west, right? Those don’t work for the most of the portal worlds we’ve been able to catalog. So we use other words. Nonsense, Logic, Wickedness, and Virtue. There are smaller sub-directions, little branches, but those four are the big ones. Most worlds are either high Nonsense OR high Logic, and then they have some degree of Wickedness or Virtue built into their foundations from there. A surprising number of Nonsense worlds are Virtuous. It’s like they can’t work up the attention span necessary for anything more vicious than a little mild naughtiness."

Which got me wondering how our canon worlds might sit on the map, and low and behold, I found Tor.com has already done my work for me.

Today's DE comes from a suggestion by [personal profile] i_am_your_host--thank you!

What would your pups would think of their own canon and how would they deal with canon-puncturing if they haven't been punctured already?
