  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)

  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)

  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.

Mmm, I love me some Lindsey Stirling.  <3  It's a good fight song too!

That does make me wonder, do we have a planet/region that can do a Western-inspired theme yet?  Because if not, we've gotta get a moon out there or something that's Western-inspired so we can have bar fights and high noon shootouts.  XD  And awesome hats for everyone!

More songs!  :D

For Seren:

Pink - Try  Fun fact:  This was the song that cemented Seren in my head, both because it helped solidify her concept for me, and because it made me realize that pre-conversion she was actually a pretty strong person in her own way - strong enough that she could work up the courage to confess her love (but as we all know, it didn't work out XD)

Genesis - Invisible Touch  Seren image song ALL OVER THE PLACE.  Also, pheromone emitters for the win.  :D

Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible  Another Seren image song.  :D 

And a song for Sin:

Emilie Autumn - Time for Tea  Listening to this I realized that this song has Sin just before/during the coup written ALL.  OVER.  IT.  I also love the warping of the little girl nursery rhyme, because it seems like it's Sin's life in a nutshell.  XD

And finally for the Revolutionary Senshi:

Emilie Autumn - By the Sword  There's the general message of valiantly doing good, and the mention of remembering those who came before, and being part of a tight band.  It seems appropriately heroic and bittersweet for the senshi, both the Old and the New Guard.  <3

In other news, nobody will ever, ever want to put Roimata on cooking duty for the group.

You know, the image that comes to mind is Kit standing at the entrance to the kitchen on the Gloriana, arms folded, while Roi waves a can of Something Awful at her.

"Hey, I found this in one of the store rooms!  I was thinking--"


"It's only 50% brains--"


"But it's in sauce!"


"Can we just--"


Questions / Re: Review our review system!
« on: December 19, 2013, 07:51:42 PM »
Having been on both sides of the review system as well, I think it's working pretty well!  A week is a pretty good time for turning an app around, I think.  It keeps the applicant from having to wait too long, but it gives the reviewers a chance to respond.  I think stretching the turnaround time to two weeks for a holiday might be too much, though, because that's basically doubling the time for what may only be a couple of days of downtime.  That might require consideration on a case-by-case basis.

I actually kinda wonder if keeping the reviewers blind would be more helpful.  It does mean that reviewers will repeat things, but if everyone is saying there's x problem with the app, then that can help guide/prioritize suggestions for revisions.  If everyone tries to say something different, then you may not get that strength gauge, if that makes sense.

I like using Google forms, although I kind of wish there was a way to go back and call up your review, in case you want to make edits.  I know Google gives you the option to edit immediately after you've submitted, but it might be helpful to be able to recall it later in case you think of something else to add.  Is there a way to do that?

I think the posted reviews are very effective.  I definitely like the addition of quotes, as they give a stronger idea of how the character was received.

Overall, I'm liking this system!  <3

The Gloriana's Lounge / Re: Iron Angel story?!!!
« on: November 29, 2013, 04:39:11 PM »

I had an idea that maybe Sin and Kivan are present when Seren wakes up as an Iron Angel for the first time.  Are we interested in that idea?  If so, we'll want to figure out how to frame it, like if the story should start with Seren waking up, or if we want Sin and Kivan to banter first (possibly about if there are any other changes to Seren they want to make before starting). 

Hmm.  Both ideas have their merits.  I kinda like the idea of having Sin and Kivan banter a bit first, both because banter is fun, and because it would provide the opportunity to have hushed conversations about their converted Resistance hacker, or just have debates over Kivan's design choices.

One question I have is, what's it like for an Iron Angel when they wake up for the first time?  Are they disoriented or is it more like they're refreshed after a nice nap?  Do they have to be told what their enhancements are, or is that programmed in?  Do they have a start up chime?  XD

Hey Ru, do you think Seren was manufactured bald, or chose to be that way?  Cause that might be a bit funny, if she looks at the hair that Kivan put on for her and is like "NOPE, NOT MY STYLE, TAKE IT ALL OFF".  Sin will back you up, dearie. 

Ooo, I kinda like that idea.  It might be kinda fun in that she's bucking the trend, a little, and her appearance isn't quite fitting the personality she was programmed with. 

If we want to pursue other ideas, we can :D Also, we could include the three bodyguards in Iron Angel stories too.  I think for game-start, Iron Angels will probably be busy with their 7-year anniversary of being a team, and also busy hunting down the pesky Resistance groups. 

I LIKE THIS IDEA TOO.  Although fair warning that Seth is kinda nutters.  <3  What would be involved in a 7 year anniversary?  A big party?  A Resistance roundup?  Seren would actually probably have fun helping plan the decorations, because while it isn't actually clothes shopping, it is dressing up, in a way, and she is all about the fashion.  <3

« on: November 29, 2013, 04:25:03 PM »
I second Kit and Phoebe goodness! Phoebe would definitely rescue Kit from an awkward social situation - that is one of the few things Phoebe knows she can actually *help* with.

A silly/light story with them trying to clean up the Gloriana's gardens or going on a "mission" to get the next in a series of romance novels they're reading would be awesome too. :)

I would also really, really love it if somehow Phoebe was able to escape with Kit's birthday drawings. I could see her showing them to Kit, wanting to know more about the flowers, and maybe not realizing/remembering Kit was the one who drew them and going from there. <3

I LOVE ALL OF THESE IDEAS.  Having Kit see her drawings again would be so wistful and bittersweet, and I love the idea of the two of them going on a mission for romance novels and being ALL SERIOUS about it.  Also having them cleaning up the gardens would be adorable.  You just know Kit would perch her on her shoulder so she can water plants that are high up.  <3

ALSO, what about having Kit and Phoebe's first story be Phoebe rescuing Kit from an awkward situation?  Kit'll have landed on Eurydice and be trying to get ahold of the local Resistance leader so she can ask after her lost kids, and that would be a great opportunity for her to get into an awkward situation that requires rescue by Phoebe.  <3  If you like this idea, lemme know and we can brainstorm further!

Sin would so take all of her Iron Angels out for lavish shopping trips for beautiful, beautiful clothing and jewelry and things.  How do you feel about this, Seren <3 <3 <3

SEREN IS TOTALLY ON BOARD WITH THIS, YES.  And when we get more Iron Angels Seren will totally want to take them out shopping, and not even in an ironic way because the other Angels are like the only people aside from Sin that Seren truly respects.  <3

I still really want training stories for Roi and Kit eventually, especially being trained by hardasses like Vaness and Daki and Tam XD

ABSOLUTELY.  Roi is Kit's pal, for starters, and yay for pals!  Also Kit would probably be downright formidable once she got some proper fighting training, so it's probably in everyone's best interest that she learns how to throw not just a punch, but a GOOD punch.  Also also I'm game for anything that thrusts Daki and Kit together because holy crap they're going to have a complicated relationship.  :D 

We should have a massive crossdressing story at some point, for sure.  The guys dolled up as dames, and ladies can be dandy pimps or whatnot.

PFFF YES.  That would actually be horrifically adorable.  <3  I'm imagining Phoebe all dandied up and going "awwww".

We have tons of NPCs to play with now - for sure we should find some orphans for the Senshi to protect, or a Resistance cell to associate with for a short time, or a villain to antagonize!  I am certainly hoping hard that the group gets to Icarus one day, to associate with CUSTOS! and get involved in his rebel cooking group.

Kit's still got some orphans unclaimed, so I would totally be game for someone taking one or two of them and turning the rescuing/protection of them into a story.   Kit can find out about them later.  <3

CUSTOS!  And by proxy, they will get to interact with Raine, a.k.a. CUSTOS JR.  <3 it weird that I'm now picturing a Custos sandwich?  Two all beef patties, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and special sauce.  The sauce is so spicy that it's like you're being angrily punched in the face.

I would totally love some interaction between Kit and Phoebe, because I imagine whatever they get up to, it's going to be absolutely adorable.   I kinda love the idea of Phoebe rescuing Kit from an awkward social situation (which Kit probably gets into easily, given she suffers from foot-in-mouth).

Playing off the crossdressing idea, it might be fun to see some of the characters having to go undercover, maybe in something that puts people out of their element.

Application Reviews / Re: Sailor Lapis // Seren Callamina - ACCEPT, BUT
« on: September 21, 2013, 08:08:58 AM »
Hooray, I'm so glad she was well received!  I was trying to avoid making her too much of a 'standard' lust-based character.  I hope I will be able to write her well enough to live up to everyone's expectations.  <3 

So to respond to some of the comments:

I've reworked the note portion of Seren's history, and hopefully it's a little clearer now.  If not, please let me know and I'll give it another try.

Also crud, I didn't realize Daki and Seren were as similar as they are.  I'll need to ponder how to separate Seren's masculine fashion sense out a bit more.  Now that my lappy's mostly better again, I'll be around online if anyone has any suggestions/ideas, or if you want to chat, Sage, I'm all for a brainstorm session.  <3

I'll have to think about whether or not she would write dating sims.  I don't think she would play them, simply because they're just not as FUN as messing with real people, but I wonder if she would participate in writing one (and then install a little backdoor program that sends her back info of what sort of decisions people make while playing so she can study people's reactions).  I'll ponder that!

To answer the question of what Seren would do if she came across someone resistant to her charms, that probably depends at least somewhat on the situation.  I think in general her first response is to be all "OH LOOK, A CHALLENGE.  <3" and would be pretty persistent about trying to break down their defenses.  If they still resist, Seren would persist until 1.) she gets distracted by someone else. or 2.) she realizes she's obsessing, and have one of her flirt-with-everything-to-show-I-DON'T-CARE breakdowns.

Since I seem to add songs in drips and drabs, here have a couple more.  :D

For Kit/Ulric:  Rusted Root - Send Me On My Way - The playful, affectionate tone of the melody and lyrics totally fits Kit and Ulric's relationship.  In addition, the refrain of "Send me on my way" seems to add a sort of bittersweetness, and maybe lends to how Ulric teaches Kit a few things to help her survive out there in the big world before they're permanently separated.

For Phoebe:  Alanis Morrissette - Wunderkind - Of course there's the leadership/rising princess motif, but I think there's also an uncertainty that works well for Phoebe, as well as an innocence that she still manages to hold onto.

I agree, I love the notes you added for each song.  It's helpful to see the story behind each one, and the reasoning as to why you used it.  The addition of highlighted lyrics is particularly nice.  Nicely done!

YAY I'm glad it achieved feels!  That was the point, after all.  :D

Also, to be fair, I think you were the one that brought up the idea of the touch screen.  But I thought it was cool, so I rolled with it.  <3

ALSO I HOPE THE PLANET CAKE IS OKAY.  I like to imagine a whole party committee going on endlessly, with the Atalantean going "IT SHOULD HAVE SNOW" and the Herc going "IT SHOULD HAVE JUNGLES" and the Orphean going "IT SHOULD HAVE ART AND OPPRESSION" until everyone throws up their hands and decides everyone gets their own layer.

« on: June 25, 2013, 05:36:34 PM »
OKAY, so this is primarily an Iron Angel question, but I'd be curious about what the answer for general Coppelia would be as well - are they capable of doing any of your standard 'human' things?  In other words, are they able to eat or drink, should the situation call for it?  Can/do they mimic breathing?  Are they (hurr hurr) "fully functional"?  Do they blink?

« on: June 12, 2013, 05:38:21 PM »
Kit's probably gonna have a solo story post-coup, of her watching the last video letter she got from Ulric and being very sadface.  It was probably sent like the day before the coup too (also all those people who were saying that the senshi were cowards are full of crap SAY THAT TO HER FACE DAMNIT).

As Sage mentioned, there should be fic of Ulric giving Adelita his compact.  I think this will be awesome both for being a dramatic moment, and because it'll help to finally hash out what exactly caused the Heracles rod to break.

Also, Angie and I were kicking around the idea of doing Ulric and Daki's last moments together.  Because we love the tragedy.  :D
