5:36 pm - Blame this on us!

A ShadowKnight/Subreal Public Service Announcement

Presented by: Nan-Cy and Mike Nelson

Nance> ::pokes Mike:: Is this thing on?

Mike> Wrong mic. ::grabs the right mic::: Hi. I'm Peter Graves--

Nance> ::elbows Mike::: No Peter Graves.

Mike> Sorry, sorry. ::clears his throat::: Hi! You may be wondering what two fictives are doing writing a public service announcement. Well... okay, we were told we had to by our Writer-muns.

Nance> Yeah, in an abstract way. Although our writing doesn't make fancy things happen normally, this might in a roundabout way.

Mike> Annnnyway, it's come to our attention that some things have been changing. And we're just here to let you know that in Subreality, there will always be room for random silliness, total annihilation drunkenness, and... :::dramatic pause::: ...acronyms!

Nance> Yep! Acronyms are a quick and easy way to get a point across without wasting a lot of breath. In fact, many parts of our canons have short hand for larger phrases. Mike, for example is SOL in more ways then one.

Mike> :::elbows Nance, but keeps beaming a smile at the camera::: And Nance here has PoG. And no, the P does not stand for premenstrual, no matter how much you might think otherwise.

Nance> ::glares at Mike and looks back at the camera:: Really, would you rather say "Hi, Everyone, Let's Pitch In 'N' Get Cracking Here In Louisiana Doing Right, Eh? Now Then, Hateful, Rich, Overbearing Ugly Guys Hurt Royally Every Time Someone Eats A Radish, Carrot, Hors d'oeuvre, And Never Does Dishes. Eventually, Victor Eats Lunch Over Peoria Mit Ein Neuesberger Tod." or H.E.L.P.I.N.G. C.H.I.L.D.R.E.N. T.H.R.O.U.G.H. R.E.S.E.A.R.C.H. A.N.D. D.E.V.E.L.O.P.M.E.N.T.?

Mike> It's a foregone conclusion that acronyms are a vital part of the human experience. That being said, the premier acronym-named club in Subreality is still there, still open for business -- even if it has been kind of dusty -- and there's always a pint of Guinness or a Coke in a glass bottle waiting there for you.

Nance> Provided that you pay the tab in the end. ::looks over to the side:: Or forage bills and pay the tab with that...

Mike> So feel free to drop on by, complain about the drama -- or wank -- or just get into a messed up round robin. After all, we are the 'Take the Plot Concept Too Seriously' Club.

Nance & Mike> And remember, only YOU can prevent Tipcuts!

5:29 pm - Kielle

Without her, there would have been no CFAN. No Subreality. No #subcafe. No TTPCTS Club. I would still be spelling 'all right' as 'alright'.

I can feel this terrible ache in my chest. I spoke with her only on occasion, but her kind words and straightforward approach to life, to fandom, to everything elevated her in my mind to celebrity status. She was like an icon, and still human. Few people with her talent can say the same.

From a fan, and a fellow writer, me and mine are in mourning today.

My father died today. He had a massive heart attack at work.

I hurt.

I don't know if I'll stay with the TTPCTS Club or Subreality. Although Rick does come from a series, he shared a lot with my father. Basically...
Nance = me.
Rick = daddy.
It was an inside joke I kept to myself. Well, the truth is out now.

8:21 pm - How to Leave Reviews

(stolen from n_isfor_neville and x-posted like a bizzatch)

1 What is your reaction to this piece of writing? (Did it make you feel?)
2 Was there anything confusing about the plot or the way something was worded?
3 What is your favorite part and why?
4 Is there anything that can be improved?
5 What, if anything, about it was cliche?
6 Anything else you would like to add.

Now hopefully nobody will have to live with "omgwtf more plz!111" ^_~

current mood: hopeful

Nifty site: http://www.kabalarians.com/

For some amusment, I decided to look up some of my characters. It's good for a cheap laugh. Feel free to post findings on your characters in the comments. Think of it as a "Getting to know you" type of session. :-)

Looking At Random Characters That Are Connected to MeCollapse )

10:18 pm - Art-ish stuff.

I keep telling myself that I should do more fan art crud, but when I actually get around to it, strange stuff comes out.

Nan-Cy and Wiarton sprites

Hmmm... yay? Both sprites are based on the style in LucasArt's game Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. Nance is based closely after Sophia's sprite, but the fox-muse's sprite is 100% original. I'd like it if Wiarton's sprite isn't stolen by other online peoples, but we all know how that goes. ::rolls eyes:: If you get blasted with a water cannon, it's your own fault.

This is the first time in a long while that I've tried sprite art, so if anyone has some pointers I'll gladly take 'em to heart. I may do some more of the TTPCTS Club characters in sprite form when I have some spare time, whenever that will be. I'll probably do Rick next and then move onto other people's characters.

Hey, if there's ever a TTPCTS Club video game, they could be of use.

current mood: geeky

1:54 am - Cleaning the Club

((A brief RR/fic/something to alleviate boredom, inspired by Teddog))

The bar had a layer of dust on it. Dustbunnies, in their rapidly breeding ways, had taken over several spots under tables, under the bar, in cabinets, and because this was Subreality, they had become somewhat sentient.

She stepped in with a little trepidation, wincing a little at the sheer quiet of the place, not used to it being that way. Honestly, she had only been here once before, a long time ago, in some of the best times of her life.

Which, in no small way, was why she was back here again.

Slowly, the Writer flipped the lightswitch on, then recoiled at the hissing dustbunnies.

"And I thought the bunnyslippers were bad," she muttered, once she was over the shock. If it weren't painfully obvious before, it was now... she had been gone too long.

Now, it was time to make amends for it. If she could turn back time the way she wished she could, she would, but there is no going back, only forward.

She went into the closet, kicked two pissed off dustbunnies out of her way, and grabbed a mop, bucket, and an old bottle of Pine Sol. She set those aside, as a wicked grin crossed her face, then pulled out a black Mead notebook and a pen.

With a few quick words, she was now armed and ready. Across her chest, like a machine-gunner's bullets, there were packets of handiwipes strapped. Strapped on her back was the ever famous DirtDevil. Around her forehead, there was a black handkerchief tied, and if anyone were to see her like this, they would probably laugh her right into the next realm of Subreality.

She didn't care. The TTPCTS Club was going to be cleaned and reopened, and Steff wasn't gonna quit until it was.

7:43 pm - (singsong) Teddog's Bribing the Patrons...!

But if it works, it works.

For anyone who happens to come across this, welcome to the TTPCTS Club. First concepted by Bodger a couple years back, this club exists in the realm of Subreality and is home to any character who walks in the door, orders a Guiness (or whatever they want) and proceeds to gripe about their authors. Typically it started out filled with MST3K charries, but as time (and round robins) went on, more fandoms approached.

For more on the TTPCTS Club, go over to the MST3K Fanfiction Page and click on the appropriate link. You can read about the Club opening, the mission to save Joel from a terrible fate, or any number of other things.

Best of all, though, you can write a fic and join us. So go! Now! This instant!
