We are closing LM.

After many trials and errors, the mods believe this is in the best interest of everyone involved. As we were going through the list to see who was behind and who was current, 15 people were set to be removed. That would have been cutting over half the community.

We realize that the delays in posting new songs, and the continual changes in format may have turned some of you off to the community. We've tried to compensate for that with extensions, and overlooking some months. But ultimately, we feel that the community just isn't working. We apologize to those of you who were really involved and we appreciate all of the patience and understanding you have shown us.

The mods over at eclecticmuses have graciously offered membership to all of the muses who were current, and we have provided them with a list of who was in good standing, who was going to be cut, and who was on hiatus at the time. goaskmalice is one of the mods there, so expect good prompts.

You can check out their rules HERE for more information, including their e-mail address. Check out the TAKEN LIST to see if your muse is available, and then e-mail the mods and give them your muse's username and let them know that you were an active member before the closing. No application necessary.

If your muse is unavailable and you'd like to apply for a different one, or you'd fallen behind, check out their APPLICATION to apply.

Thank you all so much and we wish you the best of luck!

First off, this is going to be pretty pointless. Just thought I'd let you know early, in case, I dunno, you had something more productive to tend to. Like giving your sixty pound Labrador a bath.

I am Greg House, Head of Diagnostics at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. I have a double specialty in nephrology and infectious disease. Please do not feel free to come to me with your oh-so-deadly malady du jour, as probably all you need is an aspirin and some chicken soup.

And...that's it.

See? Told you, pointless.

Hello, I'm Allison Cameron.

I work at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, and my specialty is immunology. I am one of three doctors working in a fellowship under Doctor Gregory House.

Um, so I have to get back to work now, but it's very nice meeting all of you. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.

Have a nice day! :)

This looks interesting - a place with no wizards or witches or [insert expletive] Death Eaters. I've been told I have to watch my [insert expletive] tongue, which is kinda hard as my nose gets in the way, and [insert expletive] swearing is my...fifth language. Yeah. I'm Blaise. You might have heard of me, though more likely not. That's [insert expletive] by me, yeah? Don't like being observed too much, me.

I'm older than I [insert expletive] look, and I've been around the block a time or forty. I'm what the [insert expletive] gamers call a [insert expletive] chaotic neutral. Stupid [insert expletive] terms, stupid [insert expletive] boxes, [insert expletive]!

At the moment, I'm travellin' with m' bond mate, his name's Tom. No, 'm not saying any more 'bout him than that, yeah, 'cos you [insert expletive] could be a [insert expletive] spy an' [insert expletive] that. Let's just say we've been together for a very [insert expletive] long time and leave it there, yeah? I'm his, he's mine, an' [insert expletive] with him? Well. Why spoil the surprise?

Apart from that, I drink, I smoke, I swear, yeah okay, you all got that, hardy har. I'm part Russian, part Italian and part British, what they [insert expletive] call a real mongrel breed. I'm a [insert expletive] full blooded wizard, but I don't hold with that [insert expletive] that Malfoy and his [insert expletive] all carry on about. I take care of Tom, an' that's that. So, that's me, yeah? Pleased to [insert expletive] meet you!

[ooc: Blaise here is written (now) AU - before Half Blood Prince came out, we had no idea what he was like apart from a name, gender and House, and I'd been writing him for years. I wasn't too surprised that I (like so many Blaise writers!) got Jossed, but I still write him the way I always have, so he's essentially an AU boy now. His backstory is pretty complicated, but in short, he's gone back in time to be with Tom Riddle and ended up being the Dark Lord's lieutenant. That story is being written between myself and heir2slytherin's mun in our fic prompts. B is up for a bit of rp, though like Nine, RL does get in the way sometimes. Nice to be here!]
Hello, I'm the Doctor. Just 'the Doctor.' Lived with it for nine hundred years, I more or less recognise it when someone calls me. M' history's a bit complicated, especially for you lot, I don't know, stupid tiny brains, little apes made of clay, what do you use your brains for? That, by the way, was a rhetorical question, so don't give me all the dirty on your love lives, yeah? Right.

I travel through Space and Time in my big, blue box. She's called the TARDIS - Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. With me is a young Earth lass named Rose and an intergalactic conman slutboi tease named Jack. Though if you see me now, I'm travellin' alone. An' if you see another one of me in a pin-striped suit, that's m' next me. Told you it was complicated.

So here I am, no living plastic about, fantastic!

[ooc: Hi there, Nine is available for a bit of rp, though sometimes my RL can make turn around time on tags a bit slow. Nice to be here!]

I'm Dr. James Wilson.

Two things: I'm an Oncologist, and I have a friend with a cane who epitomizes the phrase, "You're the reason God created the middle finger". That sounds like an insult, I know. But, trust me---he's proud of what he epitomizes. The former and the latter aren't at all related, except for the fact that where I practice Oncology and where my friend insinuates his God-given gift both take place at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital.

I'm Jewish, I'm divorced, blah blah. Let's skip that part.

In fact, let's just skip straight to the part where I say, "It's a pleasure to meet you", and be on my way. That's generally what these mandatory introduction things are all about, right?

Oh, and my friend I was just telling you about? You see him, you mention my name? Don't believe anything he says about me.

ooc: And the mun's own, "Hi, I exist" note. Wilson's open for RP. =)

First of all, I just wanted to apologize on behalf of the mods that things have been a little crazy around here this month. All three of us have had RL issues that have gotten in the way of everything else lately. One mod has been very, very sick with something her doctor termed an "epidemic" going around here for the last two weeks. Another mod has had her own fair share of personal issues. And I myself have just been slammed with a new term in school that started the day after New Year's and has been essay after essay after essay with a long term research paper all the while, and two other classes to focus on. Hence, challenges going up a little late, and such.

Things seem to be getting back to normal, and we've dicussed it, and we're going to try to get everything back into normal schedule for February.

As of right now, all of the applications have been answered, the topic is now recent, the Taken List is current to reflect our most recent list of voting, and the application song has been re-uploaded as of today for those interested in applying.

As for applications, we will be accepting them from now until Tuesday evening and then after that, you may send them in, but the next round of voting will not be until Saturday, February 10th. Two of our mods are leaving town for a week long trip on Feb. 1st, and will not be back until the 8th. I have class the day we get back, and then the other mod has to work on the 9th. So the soonest we'll be able to sit down and review apps will be Saturday the 9th. So if you have any applications you're working on, we will make an exception this time and vote on them during this week up until Tuesday evening and send out e-mails on Wednesday, the day before we leave. All other voting will be held until the following weekend when we return.

Other than that, I just wanted to say that we still have plenty of popular muses open so feel free to take a look over the taken list, and if you know of anyone who has maybe been wanting a chance to play a particular character who is available, give them a nudge in our direction. We've got lots of Buffy/Angel people open, the Supernatural fandom is completely open, etc. So if you've got friends like I do who are always complaining that their favorite muse is taken "everywhere", give them a link. :)

And one more thing I wanted to touch on is the RP community. It's totally not a mandatory thing and it's actually never been used, but I just wanted to remind that it's available for use if anyone wants to. You can do stand alone type threads in there, you can run entire plots if you want to. It just makes it easier for everyone to follow along if you get something going, so they don't have to go journal hopping to see where everything goes. I myself love doing cross fandom and pretty much any RP I can get when I have the time, which is why I love having the RP comm. there just in case.

I'll put up a Friend's Locked post right after this one where you can put whatever contact info you're comfortable putting up, and who you have in LM and what your interests are as far as RP go in case anyway is interested in RPing. Some of the fandoms are filling up, so some of you have something to work with. And even if you don't, there's always cross fandom. You'll need to be logged in to see the post. :)

So, that's pretty much it from our end. Let us know if you need anything, or have any questions or comments or suggestions. Even while two of us our out of town, Jenna will still be around to take care of everything because she is Super!Mod, so never fear.

And next week is going to me a Muse's Choice prompt, so remember you can always make your own suggestions for those HERE!

Happy New Year's, Happy Valentine's Day, and hope all is well for everyone!

January 2nd, 2007

We've gone through each of the prompts for December and have updated the Taken List accordingly to reflect all adds and drops for that month. We did have to remove two muses for inactivity, and those two writers can feel free to reapply in a month if your character is still available. If you did a December prompt but forgot to post a link to the appropriate post, contact the mods with your link and we'll add you back. Those of you who had to drop your muses for whatever reason are welcome to reapply whenever you'd like.

To reapply, instead of doing the same application song, pick a song that your muse didn't respond to while in LM and use that instead.

Other than that, we hope you all had a Merry Christmas or a joyful holiday depending on what you celebrate, and a very Happy New Year!

December 4th, 2006

I just posted up the first prompt of December. This means all muses have until the end of today to get in their November responses. I haven't done an official review, but I actually think I'm the only one who still owes a few. I think just about everyone else has gotten at least one done, so rock on, <3

We also had a couple of characters dropped this month, as well as several dropped by the mods themselves, so feel free to take a look at the TAKEN LIST and see if maybe it's anyone you'd like. Or give a head's up to a friend who maybe wants to play a particular character that's mostly taken.

Other than that, things are looking great, and we're glad to have you all.

Welcome to our new members from November!

November 26th, 2006

Hey lovelies. Happy Thanksgiving, all! Hope you all enjoyed it, and survived Black Friday for any of you who work retail or braved it for the great shopping deals. <3

Just wanted to let you guys know that we've decided that the last week of each month, is going to be like a Player's Choice kind of thing. Meaning, the three of us have a rotation and take turns picking the song each week so now, after the third mod does her choice, we will be using your suggested songs.

We feel that this will give everyone a chance to write challenges based on songs that really inspire you, or that you've always thought would make a great fic, etc.

You can suggest songs HERE and starting this Monday, you will start seeing your suggestions in our monthly rotation. :)
