In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

SDCC came and went with a slew of movie news from all directions and John Barrowman wearing a glittery TARDIS tutu, I'm sure other, very relevant and important, things happened too, but once you've seen John Barrowman in a glittery TARDIS tutu, all else tends to drift into the background.

In a move which is disturbing on a number of levels, President Trump used an address to the Boy Scouts of America (which he'd promised would not be political) to give a 40 minute ramble about how important loyalty to the President was... before asking them to boo the previous President. Words fail which, given some of the words I know, is probably best for everyone).

Pokemon Go's first live event, being held in Chicago, was something of a disaster, which is a genuine shame.

Greenland's ice sheet seems to be melting faster than anticipated.

The BBC published the pay rates of it's top stars, and the immediately obvious gender pay gap has led to some less than comfortable, but long overdue, discussions. Jodie Whittaker is confirmed as receiving the same pay for playing the Doctor as Peter Capaldi did.

The trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas Special which will see Capaldi regenerate into Whittaker has been released and David Bradley's impersonation of William Hartnell's first Doctor is approaching the scarily good. It also confirmed that Pearl Mackie will return as Bill for the special, but she has revealed that she will not be joining the new team for the following season.

'I did not want to fall into the trap into which so many have stumbled when trying to recapture the "feel" of those stories. In other words, I did not want "goofy" to become "stupid". The guys who wrote those Silver Age stories took them seriously, and that was how I approached my version. The intent was not to say "Hey! Look how silly this stuff was!"' - John Byrne

Unspoken Thing


Oh my god, there is nothing more frustrating than when you want to kiss someone and press them against a wall, but for some reason, you can’t—or when you see two people who are obviously in love and you want to shove them into a room already. What is preventing you two from getting together? Can anyone end this?



directions

1. Comment with your character, series, preferences, etc. in the subject.
2. Roll a number between 1-15 for a prompt.
3. Reply to others and play the scenario out!
4. JUST GET A ROOM ALREADY. OMG.

ONE LINE SMUT PROMPT MEME

Anything can be sexy if you say it the right way. Lean in close and whisper, shout it out loud, or write it in a message, just get your message out!
 
 
RULES:
  • Post with your character name, canon, and prefs in the subject line
  • In the body of your comment, tell us what your character just said to their partner. Don't post context, nothing outside quotation marks, just what they said and nothing more.
  • Examples:
    • "More. Harder. You can do better than that."
    • "Bend over, honey. I'm on top this time."
    • "Tonight, I'm going to rock your world."
    • "Oh, God, I won't be walking straight for a week."
    • "I need you to lick just a little bit lower."
  • Including more than one prompt is totally okay!
  • Respond to other prompts that catch your eye, set up the scene with your character's reaction to hearing it. It can be pre-sex, during, or after! Assumed CR is going to be the default for this meme.

HELP ME PLEASE! the meme



We all have something we either can't do, or can't do alone. Luckily there's a meme for that.

HOW TO PLAY

○Post with your character. Don't put their name and canon in the header. Instead put something that they don't know how to do and would like to learn, or something they might want help or practice with.

examples: I can't swim • I need to clean this whole house so I can go to a ball and seduce a prince • I'd like to practice throwing pitches with someone

○Look around the meme! If you see someone that you think your character can be of some help to... tag them!

Years ago on this board, I said that comic book fans want Peter Parker to be Barry Allen, not Hal Jordan. Barry got super powers through random chance. Hal was chosen because he's special.

I should have added a caveat: WE DO NOT WANT BARRY ALLEN TO BE PETER PARKER.

I'm friends with the monster

the monster & the maiden fair meme


There's a long precedent in folklore and myth of beautiful young people - both men and women - being kidnapped by monsters: dragons, beasts, goblins, demons, elves, vampires, wolves, or even evil humans. In the end, however, these prisoners are almost always rescued and brought back to civilization to live a normal and happy life.

But what if they didn't want to leave their jailor?

They've seen behind the surface and have begun to sympathize with this "monster;" no, more than that, they've fallen for them. Will this story have a happy ending? Will the monster believe that anyone could love them? Most importantly, though, can the two of them be left alone without any attempts at a "rescue?"


how to play
  • Comment with your character, your preference, and what role they'll play. Feel free to AU characters to your desire role.
  • Reply to others.
  • Thread anything that could remotely fit under the umbrella theme. Was the kidnapping just that, or did both parties know (and care) for each other before, making it a collaborative, mutual effort? Perhaps you'd prefer to play the actual Beauty and The Beast-style getting to know each other or seeing behind the grizzly facade. What about an attempted "rescue?" Or maybe you could thread out a scene where the prisoner runs away from the society they were forced back into and returns to their beloved beast! It's all up to you. You could even do smut if you wanted to, but this isn't a smut meme.
