boxofcomfits: (OOC: chibi Alice)
{{::waves sheepishly:: Hallo there! It's been far too long since I've done anything RP-wise. I've recently begun playing Pathfinder (it's rather like D&D) & my Alice!muse has been clamouring to be let out again. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things (& hoping my Alice voice hasn't become rubbish) . . . also, I'm going to attempt to try to get [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast actually running. :/

It also seems as though I stopped posting my Prompts of the Fortnight posts several months before I accidentally went on a nearly two-year hiatus. Must remedy this. :/

I'm presently working on a prompt response for [ profile] charloft & will be posting it shortly! }}
boxofcomfits: (young Alice ~ which way?)
{Meh. I really don't much feel like going through & gathering things for a Fortnight Post, but I've rather been putting this off since Saturday. (Also, half of this is technically a fortnight late as my last prompt post was at the beginning of last month ...) I might just do the [ profile] charlofty bits first & finish tomorrow .... }

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Wednesday graphics} ~ St Valentine's Day box (9 February)
{Saturday} ~ Love Songs (14 February; technically, it's all fanvids ^_^)
{Twosday} ~ Mountains vs Molehills (25 February; prompt from 8 February)
{Saturday} ~ Ballads (26 February)
{Wednesday graphics} ~ Impossible (6 March)

        At [ profile] dear_mun:


        Museboxes {[ profile] thehouseofmouse}:

Valentine's Day! (14 February) In which Alice & the Hatter discuss chocolate- and tea-pots, then share a dance in the kitchen (in Part B of the thread, Alice discusses personal remarks/compliments with the Cheshire Cat). {<3}

Also, the Dormouse now has her own journal! I eventually decided on [ profile] atreaclewell (Treacly Dreams ended up as the title). ^_^
boxofcomfits: (besting Mr Hatter)
{And it's actually on time for once, hurrah! Also, gratuitously using my newest icon—I've had it on my computer for a while, but needed proper keywords so it hadn't been uploaded yet. ^_^ }

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Sunday RP} ~ Questions (30 January; In which ravens & writing-desks are discussed)
{Saturday} ~ Epigraphy (31 January; prompt from 31 July)
{Friday} ~ Christmas gift list (1 February; prompt from 26 November)

        Winter Bingo Challenge (at [ profile] charloft; Prompt Card):

O4 ~ Humbug (31 January; Yes, most of these are two-prompts-with-one-piece)
O2 ~ Mummers (31 January)
O5 ~ Generosity (1 February; I also have a prose piece in the works for this prompt—but I needed to post something more quickly, so I used the list first)

Hurrah, I accomplished Winter Bingo! ^_^

        At [ profile] dear_mun:

It's not so bad, really, if you just take it all with a pinch of salt. (27 January, reply to [ profile] hisrunnings) {Hurrah, another Doctor!}

(Also, I can hardly believe it's been since November that I last had a [ profile] dear_mun thread.)

        Museboxes {[ profile] thehouseofmouse}:

You have got to be kidding! (4 February) In which Alice assists Sheriff Pride in a precarious position.

A china teapot has mysteriously appeared on one of the tables (26 January) In which the Dormouse appears & has storytime with the Hatter (Also, I gain another muse). (Event in progress)

Yes, I now have a Dormouse muse. In which I ramble on )

In other news, I shall have to do a bit of research in the near future: I've both a wedding (Lorina's) & a coming-out/presentation (Alice's) to plan (or at least touch on in prompts/RP) for June.
boxofcomfits: (optimism)
{again. ::is sheepish::

I haven't been very active of late—this wasn't much helped by my hours at work starting at seven now (instead of nine as before). I've been a week at my new schedule, however, so hopefully I'll begin to get used to it (and there will be more threading/prompt response answering). ^_^ }

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Saturday} ~ Story of my life (Take II) (3 January; prompt from 19 March)
{Twosday} ~ New Year, new you (5 January)
{Thursday drabbleprompt} ~ Cheese (7 January ... and not a drabble at all)
{Wednesday graphics} ~ A solitary tree (24 January, prompt from 11 January)

(And several brief conversations-on-posts with [ profile] 8butterflyboy8!)

(Will be edited to add the rest after tellytiem!)

        Winter Bingo Challenge (at [ profile] charloft; Prompt Card):

O3 ~ Baking (7 January; Yes, I'm counting these twice)
O1 ~ Solitude (24 January)

I've three more pieces to go to achieve my first bingo. I'd been thinking of writing something about the Liddell's tradition of reading A Christmas Carol in turns on the nights leading up to Christmas—and when I was linking my Solitude piece I realised I actually have "humbug" as one of my prompts! (And the "generosity" prompt will work quite well for the Alice's-gifts-for-her-friends prose piece [of possible epicness] I've been meaning to write since, oh, November.)

        At [ profile] sixwordstories:

January is apparently Hot Tea Month! (9 January, Alice's post!)

(Really must get back into posting/replying on [ profile] sixwordstories & [ profile] dear_mun)

        Miscellaneous (this fortnight post it means "enabling for [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast"):

At [ profile] musemostwanted: Won't you join the dance? (8 January)
At [ profile] character_rpg: we're all mad here (8 January)
At [ profile] role_play_ads: we're all mad here (9 January; Yes, it's identical to the one above it)

And still no more interest than when I first posted in October. Sadface. (I'm half tempted to pick up the Dormouse myself. However, I've never played more than one character at once—and I doubt I'd be able to play two characters off each other.)

I really don't like asking for plugs, but if any of you know someone who might be interested, would you mind linking them? Thank you. (I've been wanting to get this started for quite a while now, but unfortunately I'm not doing well in that regard on my own.)
boxofcomfits: (frabjous)
Hope everyone is having a happy holiday season! ^_^

I meant to do a spot of RP threading tonight (especially since I have a few scenes going), but I'm getting together with my best friend tomorrow evening & I want to knit at least a portion of her she-already-knows-it's-going-to-be-late Christmas present. As such, I think I'm just going to type up this Festive Fortnight Post & then dash off to knit (also tidying).

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Wednesday graphics} ~ Decorative (16 December) {This was great fun!}

{Sunday RP} ~ What's THAT Doing There? (27 December, reply to [ profile] 8butterflyboy8) {thread in progress}

        At [ profile] charloft_rpg:

Loft Christmas Party / Secret Santa exchange (24 December) In which Alice participates in the Gift Exchange (receiving a Frabjous gift bag) and makes ornaments—and perhaps new friends (threads in progress)!


At [ profile] thehouseofmouse: Snowed in The House of Mouse! (29 December) In which Alice attends another Christmas Party. (Event in progress) **

Hmm, I thought I had more than that. Perhaps it's because I have more threading activity this fortnight that prompty things?

I also have an Alice's-gifts-for-her-friends prose piece that needs to be written .... (Also, I will be posting an advert for [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast on [ profile] character_rpg & possibly [ profile] role_play_ads sometime this week.)

** Yes, this should technically be in the next Fortnight post—but it's a Christmas Party post! As such, I'm adding it to this Festive Fortnight post. (And I've probably overused "festive" a bit, hee.)
boxofcomfits: (daydream believer)
Much more activity this fortnight! Oddly enough, however, I have nothing in the way of [ profile] dear_mun or [ profile] sixwordstories ... but an added huzzah for reaching the halfway point in the 100 Drabbles Challenge at [ profile] charloft. Finally. ^_^ Also, festive prompts/threads have begun!

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Munday} ~ It's all about you! (30 November)
{Friday} ~ What's in a word? (1 December)
{Friday} ~ You are what you eat (3 December)
{Munday} ~ Wish List (8 December)
{Twosday} ~ The Blame Game (11 December)

        100 Drabbles of Summer Challenge (at [ profile] charloft; Prompt Table):

Prompt #52 ~ Picture of a full barbeque grill (1 December, 50 of 100)

        At [ profile] charloft_rpg:

Loft Christmas Market! (10 December) In which Alice visits a shoemaker's stall and happens upon a bakery booth (threads in progress).


At [ profile] thehouseofmouse: He's Learned a New Song, Gawd Help Us All (8 December) In which Alice attempts to remain calm in the face of a terribly annoying song (that doesn't end). (Thread with [ profile] inthistyle in progress.)
boxofcomfits: (thoughtful)
I hadn't realised that this fortnight was quite this quiet for Alice. Some of it was because I was busy helping my parents get the house ready for Thanksgiving, &c. ... but I suppose I might have a bit of writer's block as well.

        At [ profile] charloft:

{Sunday RP} ~ Little Alice (14 November; thread with [ profile] ifwebefriends in progress)

        At [ profile] charloft_rpg:

Halloween at the Loft (31 October) In which Alice dons mythological dress and meets Clay


At [ profile] thehouseofmouse: Wonderland Condiment Disaster (26 November) In which Alice nibbles biscuits she shouldn't have & finds herself ten inches high. Again. (Thread with [ profile] inthistyle in progress.)

Two more things to add (before I nap). Thing the first: I've finally reached 50 drabbles!! (At this rate, I'll be quite pleased if I finish all 100 Drabbles of Summer by year's end, which is my new goal.) I had decided that when I had 50 drabbles written I would start posting them to in batches of ten (rather like how I've been posting them here on Alice's journal.) The problem is this: I have no idea what the overall title should be. I'll have to think on it before I post (also, I've never posted anything on before. It will be a new experience).

Thing the second. I hope I'm not starting to sound like a broken record (because I feel I am & would really hate to be annoying everyone), but do any of you know somewhere else I can advertise my Wonderland game or know of anyone who might be interested in playing? I've already posted on [ profile] musemostwanted & have made a few [ profile] sixwordstories posts linking to said post without much response (And this makes me a bit discouraged as I've had the comm up for around a month-and-a-half).

But now I must nap. Especially as I have choir practice later & am sleepy.
boxofcomfits: (OOC: chibi Alice)
{{It's OOC Tiem again!

I've decided that since it's November & I never have done NaNoWriMo (and do not see myself doing so in the future), I will attempt to finish my 100 Drabbles of Summer for [ profile] charloft. My reasoning is thus: if other writers can produce 50,000-word novels (yes, I had to look up the wordcount on, then I ought to be able to write slightly more than 5,000 words (I have 45 drabbles posted & four which need a bit of editing before they'll be the proper 100-word length).

Once I have 50 drabbles written (and posted here & as comments to my "regular" Charloft prompt responses), I'm toying with the idea of posting them in batches of ten (similar to how I post them here) on—it has some excellent Alice fic & I would quite like to get more feedback, &c.

In musebox news, [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast is open for business .... sort of. I only had one interested party answer my [ profile] musemostwanted advert (a WCMI Hatter, hurrah!), so the comm is still in "looking-for-castmates" status (I posted another enabling link post on [ profile] sixwordstories yesterday. No replies yet, however). ::crosses fingers::

And I really ought to get back into writing things for Charloft responses. I've had a post for the Favourite Words Friday List written up for ages (I was working on it for a few days, put it aside, & then finished it ... a week or so ago)—and as mentioned before, I have a few drabbles that will be posted as replies to said Friday List post (once each is actually 100 words). I think this shall be my thing to work on this week (& more knitting, yes). }}
boxofcomfits: (wistful)
{This one isn't so much a true Prompts of the Fortnight post as it is a "Prompts/threads since the last Prompts of the Fortnight post" (which was three weeks ago). I really ought to be waiting until it is properly the weekend, but I'm leaving for a weekend camping trip with my parents on Friday. Also, it's going to be a very wee post indeed (especially for a three-week Prompt Post) as I'd been spending quite a bit of time editing text, playing with layouts, &c. to get my museboxy game up. (Said game is now open at [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast, but we only have two players so far so it's not actually running yet.) And I should probably stop typing before my A/N-ish bit becomes longer than the actual post, hee. Also, I feel I need more OOC icons. I might have to work on that.}

{The musebox is nearly officially open! I've got posts up for Possibly Asked Questions, a Cast of Characters, and the mun Contact List. Tomorrow, I shall unlock the first two posts and add my bare-bones Realm of Wonderland & its Environs thoughts (must decide on whether Truffula Forest or Meadow sounds better. Also, find a more suitable name for the Caterpillar's Forest) info (I quite hope we'll have a map at some point).

And then I shall have to post on [ profile] musemostwanted. On Thursday, I'll put a linky sort of post on [ profile] sixwordstories. I'd put the sws post up tomorrow (weeell, technically it'll be later today, but as I've not gone to sleep yet it's still "tomorrow." From a certain point of view, or something.), but I really must do a vaguely OOC/metaish "Happy Hatter Day!" post instead. Because it's 10/6, see? ^_^

If you'd like to look at the musebox & give me any feedback, it's over at [ profile] 6thngsbreakfast (though the PAQ, Character List, &c. are on the OOC comm, [ profile] ooc_teaparty). It would be greatly appreciated, especially as I'm entirely new at this game-creating/modding thing. ::worries::

Hopefully, I should be more active on Charloft later this week—I've got a post in the works (i.e. it's a Word doc) containing responses for two of the recent (for certain values of "recent") Munday prompts.

But now it's bedtiem.}}

Oops ...

Sep. 4th, 2010 02:48 am
boxofcomfits: (annoyed)
I've been working on-and-off on setting up a Wonderlandy musebox/dressing-room game (I was happy to see [ profile] mythos_muses go up as it seems I'm not the only one who thought a loosely-moderated game would be funtiems). I have a Word doc of planning thoughts in the way of synopsis, joining/guidelines, possible questions, & other things.

I'd like to get the comm posted &c so I can work on layout stuffs (because right now all I have is promising graphics in a Word doc. Not so helpful). Problem: I can't decide on a name. I want it to have something to with the White Queen's "six impossible things before breakfast" line. Unfortunately, most of my ideas are 16 characters & LJ, unlike AIM, only allows 15. (I quite wanted 6beforebreakfast. beforebreakfast doesn't quite appeal as much. 6breakfast reminds me of those word-game things that I can never remember the name of—I like it, but I wish I could work "impossible" in there somehow ...)

So why am I blathering on at half-two in the morning? I decided to check if one of my ideas for the OOC comm name was currently available (unfortunately, my first choice was 16 letters: fabulousmonsters would have been a fantastic name). Apparently one cannot hit the "enter" key to see if a prospective LJ name clears (I think this might be how AIM works; I'm pretty sure Gmail did this when I set up my new account)—I ended up actually creating the comm instead! Luckily, this was my first under-15-characters choice so no harm was done.

I'll stop rambling now. ^_^
