zukapony asked: Dude, I just saw your reply to the other ask. You're a Sailor Moon fan? That's so awesome! Have you seen any of the musicals?
Not yet, but my friend Jet Wolf has been liveblogging one of them, and it’s making me awful happy.
I am a fan, I have committed fanfic, I am unashamed.
Unashamed fanfic is the best fan fic.
I was hugely into the musicals for a while, then I got lured over into Takarazuka, and now I’m ashamed to admit I’ve not seen the newest musical, despite it featuring several ‘zuka OGs. But yes, they’re totally worth seeing. Cracky, but in a good way most of the time.
I REALLY WANt TO RP IN THE DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN FANDOM BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO MUCH BUT IM MILDLY SCARED BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I’LL BE MOCKED FOR SCREWING SOMETHING UP I DONT KNOW
If you’re in to Dreamwidth RP at all (or are interested in getting in to it), I might suggest my game, Dorado Weyr - http://doradoweyr.dreamwidth.org/profile
Characters all start out as Candidate, so even if you mess something up it’s pretty easy to pass it off as an IC thing, and I am perfectly willing to help newbies! Character apps are open, and the game itself will start March 1.
There’s also a Test Drive meme where you can practice with your character, both against other prospective players and some of the Weyr NPCs!
An OC, Candidates only Pern-based game
You were living a perfectly normal life as a farmer, or crafter or trader’s child. Or perhaps you were old enough you were starting to make your own way in the world. Either way, it changed when the dragonriders arrived and said you had the potential to join their ranks. You were given a week to pack your things and say good by to your family and friends before being whisked away to Dorado Weyr for a chance to bond to one of the great beasts that help protect your planet from the devouring Thread.
Or perhaps you grew up at the Weyr, surrounded by dragons and their riders, always dreaming of your chance to join their ranks. Maybe one or both of your parents were dragonriders, and you’ve always envied the deep bond they’ve had with their dragons. Maybe you’ve stood before the hatching eggs, hoping, wishing that a new hatched dragon would look your way and bond with you. It hasn’t happened yet, but maybe this time…
Dorado Weyr is an OC only game based on the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. Players will create Candidates who will eventually Impress to a dragon. And that’s the easy part…
Applications will Open February 15 and Close March 1
Game will Open March 1

Since I realize journal-based games aren’t the usual Pern thing, if anyone has any questions about how the format works, feel free to either send me an ask, or catch me on AIM at palmedfire.
