When your afternoon includes John Constantine popping up out of the blue and declaring, "no time to explain, Eclipso is loose!" you know it's going to be a strange day. The pitched battle only lasted an hour, and ended with the triumph of good over evil as the sun vanished behind the moon. But such fights are never fun. And Alec naturally enters the Bar looking just a bit weary, and a little singed. But he does seem to be smiling at least.

He goes outside to sit in the setting sun and recharge himself, and wishes he could still drink something besides water.

Jim hadn't intended to find the bar today but okay, whatever. It's a break from Dublin's incessant rain. He dumps his bag at a booth, then goes to the bar to retrieve his lute and fife...and then the vihuela, because if Sherlock hasn't been in to take it yet, he might as well have a play on it. The instruments are produced, along with a pile of paper with a note stuck to the top.

Get started on this, would you? - JM

Jim scans the first couple of pages, then raises his eyebrow at Bar.

'Time travel. Really?'

Bar says nothing, so he scowls and starts scribbling a note back. It goes along the lines of, I'm not here to do your donkey work... but his heart's not in it, because, c'mon, how often is he going to get the chance to build a time machine?

He needs some food first, though. A bacon cheeseburger, a Coke, and some Haribo gummi bears. He carries them over to the booth with the instruments, and settles in for the evening. Music and science. Today is looking up.

Wilford wants to do two things today: he wants to see if his dog is smart enough to know how to swim, and he wants to try to even out this godawful farmer's tan he's managed to pick up somewhere. And the Caribbean inlet is the perfect place to do both.

So that's exactly where he is. He's got a blanket that will inevitably get messed up and covered in sand, a cooler full of beer, and portable stereo playing something loud. In between throwing a ball as far as he can into the water for his dog to go chase after, he's throwing stones in another direction to try to annoy the giant squid into coming up and making noise.

Loki makes a graceful entrance. It's...graceful after the first stumbling step through the Door, anyway, which he walks off like a cat that's fallen off a windowsill. A) He meant to do that, and B) you didn't see anything, right? It takes him a second or two longer to recover from his momentary expression of Where the hell am I?

But right. It's Milliways. Perfect. He saunters to the Bar, where he finds a letter waiting for him:

From Loki of Asgard, to Loki of Milliways, Greetings.

Or if you're the less formal type: Hey Loki, it's Loki! <3 <3 <3

So, funny thing, I found myself in your multiversal bar while I was on my way to save Midgard from doom and misery (!), and....

The Bar offers him a drink without being asked, and he sips it while reading over his interdimensional mail.

Welcome back to another week. I hope yours is a good one. 

What is a simple pleasure your pup enjoys? I'm thinking thing like getting into bed when the sheets have been freshly changed, curling up with a blanket fresh from the dryer, or a hot towel to wipe your face with. That sort of thing. 

And what about you?

Frankly, I say you'll probably like this if you like some abstract stuff.

The first chapter is available to read for free, thus the amount of pages below. Feel free to check them out on the site here though.

Once upon a time, DC comics understood that comics don't have to be always serious grimdark heavy drama involving lots of gratuitous violence and rape. That was a good thing, but the less serious comics that DC put out weren't always worthwhile. Today it seemed appropriate to post 8/23 pages from issue 117 of the mercifully forgotten "The Adventures of Jerry Lewis" comic, an issue worthy of note today only because it guest starred Wonder Woman in her "mod" phase.


gratuitous sexism and unfunny jokes ahoy )

The past was a different country, one in which it was possible for there to be over 100 issues of a Jerry Lewis comic.

ETA: the last page includes a statement of management and circulation. in 1970, "The Adventures of Jerry Lewis" was selling 175,000 copies every month. Do you think maybe, just maybe, going after ever more grimdark crossover events might have been a mistake on DC's part?

Giving this the crack tag, I guess? And the misogyny tag, because Jerry Lewis.

[personal profile] iprotectyou posting in [community profile] milliways_bar
Baze is excited. He's been brewing beer for weeks in his upstairs workshop--refurbished after that unfortunate explosion--and he's ready. He enlists Chirrut to carry the bottles of stout and hard apple cider and red ale and--Baze's favorite--moonshine downstairs to the bar.

"... Such a complainer!" Baze says over his shoulder to Chirrut. They're halfway down the stairs with their second box of pre-chilled alcohol each. "Had I known how old and decrepit you were, I wouldn't have asked you to help."

"Next time, Malbus, I am making sure you get smaller bottles from Bar. You could store a week's worth of water in these and have space left over!"

Baze laughs, and carts their prizes to the counter. He quickly sets up what he and Chirrut need for their bartending shift--grated tang bark, boiling water, and a written menu--and then pats Bar, sending her to bed. The board reads:

Happy Hour with Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe
Dark Side
Light Side
Emperor's Blood

Hot chocolate with tang bark
Peppermint tea

All proceeds to go to the Joe Manco fund for Bound patrons

So, it's been a few years since we had one of these, so why not? Solve the puzzle by finding out which drinks, rooms, room numbers, and pets belong to whom, and what the pets are named.

Bonus question: Name the plant.

1. There are five "rooms" in a row, listed left to right (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
2. Jay spends his time in the garage.
3. Emcee drinks gin.
4. The person who lives in the sauna has a pet named Annabelle.
5. Bonnie's pet is called John, after her sons.
6. The sauna is just to the left of the corner of the bar.
7. The person who owns a dog drinks coffee.
8. An unnamed plant lives at the practice range.
9. The person in the middle room has an animal named George.
10. Chirrut likes room number 1.
11. The cockatiel lives next door to the person who drinks green tea.
12. The person who owns the plant lives next door to the person who drinks water.
13. Hans the glittery rock "lives" next door to the sauna.
14. Oswin owns a cat.
15. Chirrut's room is next door to the lake.
16. Jay owns George.
17. Annabelle's owner drinks chai tea.
18. Emcee sings in the corner of the bar.

Here is a nifty link that will draw a graph for you. I'll post the solution here on Wednesday.

The front door opens onto a sunlit, dusty street. The robed young man coming in is distracted with an armful of items -- books and scrolls mostly, but also a few miscellaneous wrapped packages -- and only looks up after the door has closed behind him.

And stares.

[personal profile] icon_uk posting in [community profile] scans_daily
"Avatar: The Last Airbender" and it's sequel "The Legend of Korra" featured some of the best worldbuilding of any cartoon series I've ever seen. The various societies were rich, and complex, and they included their resident elemental powers with creativity and practicality.

One area the cartoon did not expand on was how certain social matters were addressed, and the Korra finale, which showed Korra joining hands with Asami Sato, the woman she loves, as they step into the Spirit World, was positively subversive in showing a blossoming same sex relationship.

Luckily for us.... )

So, I wanted to get AU Week out of the way before I announced this, but I might as well do it now.

Me and Zed were talking a couple of weeks back about the fact that there was no way to get digital only content, like Orange Is The New Black and The Tick, in Milliways. I talked to our very awesome mods, and our ideas have been accepted and approved.

This means that Milliways now has a repository for web originals located in the library next to the DVDs and Blu-rays, and your pup can now get a terminal to access the new computer network. The network is designed to allow sharing of content, inter-Bar emails and stuff like that. Still no true internet, though.

Hope you guys enjoy, and thanks to Zed for the repository idea, as well as the invaluable advice.

Happy RPing!

 Wow, people, that was amazing! Who'd have thought there could be a succulent AU! And all the other amazing ideas people were posting and threading out.

Thanks ever so much for participating, and thanks to Munnin, my partner in crime, for doing most if the organising work this year, as I am laid up in hospital and relegated to using my Kindle Fire tablet in between medical stuff happening. Still, it's amazing it was possible at all; we all live in the future now!

I suppose we can keep playing for the rest of the weekend, finishing off ideas and threads, but perhaps no new AU EPs once it's officially Monday? Then normalcy can return. As soon as we've established what's normal, anyway.

Let's do this again next year.
