This thing's been sitting in my IS folder for over five years now. It's time it was introduced to the world. Prepare yourselves for...( 101 Positive Date Ideas, IS EditionCollapse )
First, an announcement. It is now most definite that the long-anticipated Insane Scenario Halloween Costume Party will no longer take place. Why? Because I'm turning it into an @wesome meme instead!There are two parts to this, so make sure you read the directions carefully.Step 1Find a picture of the person, place, thing, or idea you'd most like to cosplay as and post it as a reply to this post. If you can't find a picture or if your costume defies traditional visual media, simply describe it as best you can.Step 2Pick a costume for your randomly selected IS cast member (listed below) and post a picture (or description) of it. Costume suggestions can be as kind or sadistic as you'd like. ^_^Here's the list:Callista picks a costume for Tenar.Schala picks a costume for Marian.Tenar picks a costume for Kokoro.Karina picks a costume for Torrent.Aura picks a costume for Darah.Josephine picks a costume for Aura.Darah picks a costume for Amy.Kokoro picks a costume for Mackenzie.Torrent picks a costume for Ali.Mackenzie picks a costume for Schala.Ryan picks a costume for Callista.Kendra picks a costume for Ryan.Kaze picks a costume for Karina.Marian picks a costume for Kendra.Ali picks a costume for Josephine.Amy picks a costume for Kaze.Everyone clear on what we're doing? Good! Let's see those cosplay ideas!
Everyone secretly wants to be a spy, right? And all good spys have aliases! So why not figure out an awesome alias for yourself right now? Then when the time comes that you are asked to infiltrate a secret organization or are even trapped in an awkward situation and need to tell someone your name (but you obviously can't use your own!), you will already have your alias handy!So! I think a fun thing for us all to do is use this nifty Anagram Generator! to type in our names and see what kind of cool aliases we can get using just the letters we already possess in our names^_^ You can play with the letter limit on the words generated, too. And, since there is sadly only a 15 character limit, some of you might just want to use first and middle names or someone like Josephine, whose last name is way to long to fit as well, might just use the nickname Jo or her married name Xermay... or things along those lines. Anyway, let's have fun people! Post your aliases in the comments! (If you want to share more than one, feel free!)
It's about friggin' time that we finished this thing, so listen up. This last round is for the directors/alter egos.Round 5: If I Went to Hogwarts...Since 2007 was such a big year for the Harry Potter fandom, I figured our last meme round should pay homage to it in some way. So take a moment to imagine what type of Hogwarts student you'd be, then fill out the profile and post it to your LJ. Capiche?( Hogwarts Student ProfileCollapse )
We're almost done, folks! Round four is for Mackenzie, Ryan, Kendra, and the category-defying Kaze. So break out your virtual #2 pencils, gals, and get ready to delve into the wonderful world of online quizzes.Round 4: What's Your Class?Ever lost sleep at night wondering what your RPG character class is? I know I have. But enough about my nerdy insomnia. When they get a chance, Kaze and the New Waves (wow, does that sound like an eighties pop band or what?) will fill out The RPG Class Test and post the results to their journals. Straightforward, yes? Now let the geek-ery begin!
Hey, remember Meme Rounds? No? Well, tough. I'm resurrecting it anyway. So listen up, Darah, Kokoro, and Torrent, because I'm only going to say...er...type this once.Round 3: What a Magical Girl NeedsAt their earliest convenience, the Zodiacs will head on over to Google and search for their name plus the word "needs." They will then browse the results, select five (5) of the most interesting and/or funny suggestions, and post said suggestions to their personal journals. Hilarity ensues, yadda yadda yadda. Now get to it!
And now for the second iteration of Meme Rounds. This one is for Karina, Aura, and Josephine, if she cares to grace us with her presence; I know you Amy characters aren't big on participation. *scowls*Round 2: Four ThingsBehind the LJ cut is a slightly modified version of the Four Things Meme. Your mission, secondaries, is to fill it out and post the responses to your journals. Got it? Good. Dismissed.( Four Things MemeCollapse )
It's starting to get a bit dusty in here again, which means it's high time for another scenario-related activity. This one is a little something I like to call "Meme Rounds," and the primaries are going to start us off. So Callista, Schala, Tenar...come on down!Round 1: New Year's ResolutionsBecause it's never too late to set a few goals for yourself, right? Here's how it works: the primaries will go to this website, enter their livejournal username, and post the results in their respective journals. Then the rest of us will check out said results, make some comments, and have a big ol' laugh. Sounds fun, eh? Now let's get to it, gals!
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it might be nice if we all took a moment to share something we're thankful for. Sound good? Okay, I'll start!I'm thankful for the save feature on video games. Can you imagine trying to play through Lunar or Ocarina of Time in one sitting? Good gravy, that would $uck.Who's next?
Here's a riddle to keep your non-elvan minds nimble: Threre is a time when they're green and a time when they're brownBut both of these times, cause me to frown. But just in between, for a very short while,They're perfect and yellow, and cause me to smile!What are they?Think about it for a while and give me your replies. I'll post the answer next week.~Elel
