So it's been suggested to me by some People I work with that I Officially become a devotee to the Queen (my King's twin sister.) My King thinks it's a great idea, and he thinks it can be "transformative" for me.

*squinting intensely at his King*

I just need to get a tarot spread together to see what becoming her devotee would mean, and what she thinks of all this.

"Testing in three... two... one!"

What is going on outside on the firing range today is not gun practice or weapons testing, it's SCIENCE!

And yeah, okay, kind of with the weapons testing, but not in a way where the man who's conducting said testing is trying to get good at it, or make sure the weapon works, he's trying to figure out how it works.

And maybe playing around, just a bit.

The weapon in question is a large, rather fierce looking silver boomerang. On his countdown's end Cisco chucks the razor-edged weapon into the air, and then quickly runs, diving behind a bunker he's made out of someone's old bomb crater and some sandbags.

The boomerang hurtles through the air, headed towards a table holding several watermelons standing on end. A camera is set up on a tripod and filming on the edge of the range, while Cisco documents with his phone from his foxhole.

Just as the boomerang nears one of the watermelons it arcs away, changing trajectory and slinging back around. Cisco grins and keeps filming.

Behind him and on the approach to the firing range there is a sign set up that reads:

beware the boomerang

Oh right, today's my day isn't it? OK, I actually remembered but then got distracted by work and a headache.

So, not to get Joseph Campbell on you, but how about you tell us about when your character's call to adventure. Did they answer the first time or ignore it? Have they gotten many calls or are they still waiting for the call? Would they rather they hadn't gotten the call or would they do it all over again? What was the source of the call?

Feel free to answer any of these or spin the topic in your own way of course.

Sunshine is still faintly steaming from her shower when she steps in, her sky blue and lime green pajama top damp where her wet hair has dripped. She almost shuts the door rather than step through, but the awareness of the coming morning is already sitting like a stone in her stomach, and that keeps her from turning back. She shuts the door quietly behind her with hands scrubbed pink, where they are not darkened with bruises or scraped raw.

Rae wanders vaguely towards the couch nearest the fireplace, but she sees through the window that there is still some daylight left here, and it is too much to resist.

Exhausted as she is, there's no way she's going to be able to sleep any time soon. Sunshine walks right through the bar to the door outside, and goes through into what's left of the late afternoon sunlight. Nearly sunset, and it's going to be a gorgeous one. It is light, and motion, and color, and the new green grass is soft and clean under her bare feet. It may not be much, but it is so much better than being left in the dark with just the sound of her thoughts echoing in her own head in the dead hours of night.

Your character has been up all night, no sleep. Was it planned or accidental? Work? Play? The brutal reality of insomnia? And what are they like as the day wears on?

Today's DE is not sponsored by stupidity.

*skids hurriedly into place* Sorry guys! Bank Holiday Monday here, so of course I'm not working so I totally blanked on today being my DE.


I had something in mind ahead of time for today, but it turns out that the weather gods have granted us a miracle - a.k.a a sunny bank holiday weekend (the traditional weather is floods), and it feels churlish not to acknowledge that.

As such: it's a beautiful day outdoors. Your pup doesn't have to work or perform their normal required-for-survival activities. What are they doing instead?

After two weeks of adjusting to new meds that he doesn't even think will work, Wilford is going stir crazy. But if he gets up and moves around, he feels a little better.

Maybe he just needs something to do.

He's dragged a training dummy out of the gym and hauled it outside. There's really no good place for it on the sloping lawn, but he eventually finds a place that will at least work. Once he gets it settled, he measures out twenty paces from it and kicks a small hole in the ground. He's not elevated enough, but that doesn't matter; he didn't exactly measure his distance anyway. He's just here to practise, and he's got a giant bucket full of baseballs for just that.

It's been years. He's rusty, and muscle memory is slow and sluggish to return. Throw after throw after throw goes a little wide or a little low. He hits the dummy more often than not, but never right where he wants to. It's enough to irritate him into forgetting he ever had a headache at all.

Welcome to the eightieth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, April 20-Sunday, April 21. The theme is "Identity Crisis."

Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.

Are there any cultural prohibitions* regarding fashion from your canon? How does your character view such prohibitions? Adn feel free to take this to mean anything from clothing, to jewelry, to hair, to whatever.

*prohibitions is a strong word to use but it seems the only one I can think of. I was originally thinking something along the lines of how those who present as male tend to get frowned upon for wearing skirts, dresses, and other traditionally female attire. Feel free to run with this or dig deeper.

Let’s talk body language and personal quirks our characters may have. Is there a certain gesture your pup uses often? Do they do something that seems innocuous but has a darker or deeper meaning? Any cultural body language that maybe doesn’t translate well?

Cecil, looking frazzled, stumbles into the bar. He pauses in the doorway, considering because... yeah. This could work.

Holding the door open with his foot, he rummages around behind him until he finds something to hold the door open (A footstool shaped like a gargoyle... or perhaps it's a footstool-sized gargoyle? One of those.) and bolts back into his apartment.

The gargoyle/footstool combo leers at the room silently.

Cecil re-appears, arms full of clothing, and he awkwardly nudges the gargoyle back into his apartment and makes a beeline for the couch. Now he has much more time to decide what to wear to the ceremony! Win.
