HAPPY BIRTHDAY hawkeyesmartini!!! *faxes chocolate-covered Hawkeye, Steve-pop, lurid images of cole and stevemmmmmm, and Hob Nobs* I hope you have the best birthday, and the best year, ever! You are so special to me -- my best friend ever! -- and I wish you all the best! *HUGS DV lots*

In other news, a few weeks ago I posted on a number of lj communities, hoping to get involved in a nice, juicy rpg. I got no real response, other than someone asking what an rpg was. Then, yesterday, to my great delight and excitement, I was contacted by melissa2u, who is one of my very favorite writers in the whole world. She brought on board another of the writers whose work I really like, themegs, and has leads on getting a "Bono" for us as well. So, it looks as if I'll not only be participating in an rp, but I'll be participating in an rp with some of my very favorite writers!!!!! Needless to say, lots and lots of squeeing was done yesterday and not a whole lot of work! Now just need to talk with hawkeyesmartini about the specifics of how rpgs work on lj, since she is ever so much more knowledgeable about this things than I am, and I'll be off and running!

Finally got the 1983 Lep concert dvd on Wednesday, and man was it worth the money I spent on it! Predictably, the sound quality sucks lemons -- it was, after all 1983 -- and the viewing angle is far enough away that you can't really see the lads' faces all that well, but I GOT TO SEE STEVE PERFORM SWITCH 625!!!!!!!!!! I can die a happy woman now! *HUGE GRIN* Now I'm just waiting to see if my ebay purchase of their Storytellers performance will actually arrive -- received a warning from ebay recommending I not go through with the sale, but I'd already paid and received an email that my dvd was in the mail....*worries*

Must get off to work now, but hope that everybody has a great day! HUGS!!!! NV

i'm shifting into soup mode.: bono // celebrationoffside on July 22nd, 2005 04:57 pm (UTC)
omg do you still need a bono for an RP?

nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 22nd, 2005 05:27 pm (UTC)
Actually, I'm not sure if we do our not, 'cause Melissa hasn't gotten back to me to let me know if either of her desired "Bono's" had responded. Let me email her and find out, and if not I'll throw your name into the mix and let ya know. Personaly, I'd LOVE to have you involved, but I don't know if she's already filled the spot or not. Feel free to poke me if you don't hear back from me in a day or two -- sometimes my mind goes haywire and loses things that I'm supposed to be doing!!!! Cheers! NV
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 22nd, 2005 05:29 pm (UTC)
Oh, and if that particular spot is filled, I might just be interested in a second rp, perhaps just a two player one -- bono/larry perhaps? (I don't know that I could pull off a believable IC Edge...) We can talk about this if the other doesn't work out for you.
i'm shifting into soup mode.: bono and larry // even better ...offside on July 22nd, 2005 05:36 pm (UTC)
Ahh, ok.

B/L RP would be like ... the best thing ever, EVER. OMG!

Yes I would love to dot hat :D
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 22nd, 2005 05:52 pm (UTC)
In that case, I would not be adverse to doing two rps, i.e. doing a Larry/Bono rp even if you also end up doing Bono in the other one with melissa, meggie and I. I would think maybe baby U2 would be good, and I was thinking NC-17...maybe their commiserating over their mums' deaths could lead to something more? Just a thought. *Grin* This should be fun!
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 22nd, 2005 05:55 pm (UTC)
Whoops, I got mixed up -- It's Edge we're waiting to hear back on. We have a Bono. (Meggie is doing Bono). So.... how about that Bono/Larry rp?
i'm shifting into soup mode.: bono and larry // we need love and peaceoffside on July 22nd, 2005 06:01 pm (UTC)
:D !!! I'm totally up for it; and any era, really ('cept for October - UF era). Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby are my favorite era's to RP but a baby!B/L one could be great fun too :D
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 22nd, 2005 06:06 pm (UTC)
Fair enough. I'd prefer Baby!U2 myself, just 'cause I think they were so hot when they were young and somewhat innocent! I have to tell you I've never rp'd before on lj, nor within a fandom before, so this is all new to me, though I understand how it is done. So, you'll have to be forgiving if I go OOC. Feel free to point such out if I do, and if you have advice as to how I should do Larry I'd be happy to hear it. Let me know what ideas you might have and we can start pulling this together. *big grin*

Sounds good to me :D They were so hot and innocent when they were younger. And no problem, I'm not an RP expert or anything but I know my way around and what to do and all so I'll be able to help out no problem ;)

I'm excited about this! I'll start pulling ideas together soon :D
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on July 22nd, 2005 06:29 pm (UTC)
Okay, you just cracked me up and made me sigh with relief too. The lovely lady I'm waiting to hear from is wonderful at giving constructive feedback on characterization.

You're cute when you're excited :)

And totally separate, Steve was always my favorite.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 22nd, 2005 06:49 pm (UTC)
You're cute when you're excited :)

Snort! Glad you think so! Sometimes my hubby just thinks I'm over-the-top!!! He just shakes his head at me!

And totally separate, Steve was always my favorite.

I've always adored Steve, and once I started reading hawkeyesmartini's steve/phil slash stories it was all over but wiping up the puddle of NV goopy goodness. Too bad he had to go and die on us, eh?

As for cracking you up and relieving you -- I will freely admit that I've not done Larry before, or any U2 lad, though I've read an awful lot of U2 slash stuff (and lived in Ireland for 3 years, so at least I can talk like an Irish drummer!), so I may well find some difficulty at first in staying IC. But please feel free to correct me/advise me/beat me over the head with a chocolate-covered Larry (Please!!?!!) all you want. I appreciate the feedback and assistance and know I have a lot to learn from you ladies! I'm still disbelieving of my good fortune in getting such experienced and excellent rp'ers involved! :) HUGS! NV
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on July 22nd, 2005 07:53 pm (UTC)
B does the same to me. He thinks I'm nuts, but he loves me.

I'm a one-fandom woman, but I had a crush on him since I was 12 or 13. Yeah, him dying did it for me. They're just not the same band without him.

Well I'd sincerely hoped you at least had a clue. Oh, we're good at beating, I mean, offering suggestions. Hee. I'm just a rp-whore :)

Do you have an Edge yet? How much time does an rpg take? Do you have to be in 4-person chat mode all the time, or do you just post in a journal, or what? (because I secretly really hate chatting.) What's the era?
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on July 26th, 2005 12:27 am (UTC)
We do have an Edge (Amy). And we're all set.

Do you want to RP?!
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 26th, 2005 12:32 am (UTC)
Are YOU interested in yet another rp, if Occ is??? *evil grin*
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on July 26th, 2005 02:51 am (UTC)
Heh. I don't know. Time's a factor.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 26th, 2005 12:36 pm (UTC)
Fair enough. I'm pretty tight on time as well, but the prospect of rp'ing with Occ. overcame my sense of reason! Hee! Hope you've got all those computer issues worked out! NV
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on July 26th, 2005 02:18 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping to hear something good from them today :)

We need to work out when to start. When will you have time? Opening day is usually a spamfest.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 26th, 2005 02:37 pm (UTC)
Um...Probably Friday would be a good day to start. I assume it will be an all day kind of thing, with people responding to posts/comments throughout the day as they get a chance? Is it that one person posts the first day in their journal, then the others all respond to that post/each other, or do we each post the first day? Looking forward to this so much! *Big Grin* NV
subterranean homesick newsoccula on July 26th, 2005 03:22 am (UTC)
You know, on the one hand, I really really do. But on the other hand, it seems like I barely get any actual writing done as it is, and it seems like an RP is kind of just for fun? I don't want to say it's not 'real' writing or anything, but it's not exactly what I feel I should work on. *stupid moral dilemmas*
You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on July 26th, 2005 03:26 am (UTC)
Valid point. I feel like that myself sometimes. That I don't write because of playing. It does take time though, that could be used for something else. It is fun, but no, I don't consider it real writing either :)
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 26th, 2005 12:38 pm (UTC)
I understand entirely. I WANT you to keep writing (just a little selfishly!)!!!! More cowboys, more cowboys, more cowboys! *wink* Hope all is going well for you! NV
subterranean homesick newsoccula on July 26th, 2005 12:59 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you. I'm sure there are people who'd rather I RP and get out of their faces, but there are others who'd rather I write something they can read, and I think I lean that way too. Or, maybe I think RPing won't help my writing as much as 'just writing' will, but I don't know whether that's true or not, really.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 26th, 2005 12:31 am (UTC)
What she said, re: Edge. But -- if you want to rp I am MORE than willing to join/start another with you and whoever we can round up. Sounds like Melissa might be game! I'd go for any period at this point... Please say yes!!!! *flirts shamelessly* NV
subterranean homesick newsoccula on July 26th, 2005 03:23 am (UTC)
Welll ... of course, I'm really flattered. See my comment to Mel above - I feel like I shouldn't. Sigh.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on July 26th, 2005 12:40 pm (UTC)
No problem, as said. But if you ever change yer mind, I'd love to rp with you -- one of my favorite writers! *huggles* NV
subterranean homesick newsoccula on July 26th, 2005 12:59 pm (UTC)
*shucks*
hawkeyesmartini on July 23rd, 2005 06:33 pm (UTC)
Whoa, that frog (mood icon) is on something, or needs Ritalin! Good luck with the RPG, I'm sure you'll do fantastically! Oh, you go to see Steve doing Switch? AWESOME. Ty would love to see that too, I imagine!
