 Tell us about someone who was influential to your character's development. 

ETA: This can be a person within canon, Milliways, meta as the player, or whatever inspires. Originally I had meant within canon and character POV, but run with it as you will.

If you find Discord unusually slow tonight, someone on Twitch accidentally DDOS'ed their servers. They're working on trying to kill the server they created, but with several million people flooding into it, they can't even get to the button to delete it.

Resistspo!

Inspiring quote, which I found, of all places, in a memoir about de-cluttering, and comes, of all places, from the musical "Annie""

Don't it feel like the wind is always howlin'?
Don't it seem like there's never any light?
Once a day don't you want to throw the towel in?
It's easier than putting up a fight.


It's a hard-knock life!

So heyyyy, Cassidy and Cassian (bromance names now being accepted) were in the infirmary and stole some drugs but they left notes for the staff. Only Cassian signed his note. Any resulting fallout is welcome. Sorry, Guppy & Co.!

Okay, here goes my first daily entertainment post. Since no one did one yesterday, I guess I ought to make sure we don't miss two in a row.

If your pup could have any theme song, what would it be?

I found out about this via the League of Women Voters. This act, introduced in both the Senate and the House, has the stated purpose "To require States to automatically register eligible voters to vote in elections for Federal office, and for other purposes."

Among other things, it would automatically register eligible voters via information they provide to various government offices, such as the DMV. A number of states have take this kind of legislation up, and a few have passed it, but it would be wonderful to have this on a federal level, for all states.

It's S. 1353 in the Senate and H.R. 2876 in the House. Call your reps and ask them to support this act by co-sponsoring it.

What we're seeing right now in Washington with the AHCA is what happens when the elected officials are not sensitive to the needs of their constituents. To force them to care, we have to make it easier for those constituents to make their voices heard in the voting booth.

iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze smiling (smile)
[personal profile] iprotectyou posting in [community profile] ways_back_room
Despite Baze's initial protests, he and Chirrut have erected a sign warning bar patrons in several languages that the sun burns. The sign is located on the border between the lake and the beach.

The languages are as follows, courtesy of Google Translate Bar's help:
Aurebesh (Galactic Basic): Beware of burning from the merciless sun
English: Beware the burn of merciless sun
French: Méfiez-vous de brûler du soleil impitoyable (Beware of burning the ruthless sun)
Russian: Остерегайтесь ожогов от беспощадного солнца (Beware of burns from the merciless sun)
Japanese: 無慈悲な太陽から燃えることに注意してください (Please be aware that it burns from a ruthless sun)
German: Hütet euch vor dem Brennen von der gnadenlosen Sonne (Beware of burning from the merciless sun)

ETA: Maru has kindly provided a more accurate German translation: "Hütet euch for der Glut der gnadenlosen Sonne," which translates via Google as "Beware of the glow of the merciless sun."

ETA2: Check out Anna's graphic for translations in Wraith, Alteran, and Latin!

Dropping back in with a few links! Feel free to drop others in comments.

Supreme Court sets higher bar for stripping citizenship (Reuters). The justices ruled 9-0 that a naturalized American citizen cannot be stripped of citizenship if a lie or omission on immigration forms was irrelevant to the government's original decision to grant entry into the United States.

[Seattle] Landlords Are Now Required to Provide Voter Registration Info (Seattle Met). Very cool look at how voting accessibility can be addressed on the city level.

Steyer to plow $7.5 million into voter mobilization efforts (Politico). Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer said Thursday he will put more than $7.5 million into an effort to register and turn out young voters in eight states ahead of the midterm elections.

Is there some bit of canon or plot that you are ignoring as it is a stupid-assed decision?

Bonus question: I recently noticed my profile for a pup was woefully out of date and needed reworking. Post in with your pups and we'll review their profile and offer any suggestions we might have.

What would your character as a child--say, age 10--think about what's going on with your character nowadays? What would your character five years ago think if they could look ahead to the present?

I hope that the heat isn't being too difficult for anyone, heat and humidity are awful.

Pam is angry, Baze and others don't help.

Hera and Kanan try to get ready for what might happen next.

Eden tries to improve.

Now what are you loving and finishing. I had a wonderful family visit but I'm glad to be back.

 Sorry for the lack of DE yesterday: I was in ITIL class when the alarm went off, and just forgot afterwards because, hoo boy, ITIL.

So, DE for today inspired by last post on the comm: your character gets attacked by a) an axe crazy, b) an Internet troll c) some religious or political loony taking umbrage at them in RL. What do they do?

Fight Club update

[personal profile] notapilot posting in [community profile] ways_back_room
I bet y'all have missed the chance to hit each other in a Security approved environment haven't you? I know I've missed watching it. It's been, what, a few months since an official fight club? Well, RL came up and kind of mugged me, which ruined any thread slots I had available.

But fear not, there is another!

Sahaal ([personal profile] exiled_heir_of_the_eighth)'s mun was asking about fight club and what when into running it, and has decided it is a thing they can help with! Accolades and cheers for them! Rules might shift a little in wording as a different character writes the rules, but the one rule of fight club (both OOC and IC) stays the same, Security is the only party that can forcibly break up a fight. Characters can try words and reason, but only an official Security pup can step in to break up the fight is the sparring turns ugly.

So dust off your gloves, oil your swords, and sharpen your spears, fight club should be back soon.

Vidders.net's Cat

Vidders.net's Cat(alog)

One of the issues with the Vidders.net network is that there are so many vids on the network that it can be hard to find just the one you are looking for. There is now a very user friendly Cat(alog) that will begin to populate with some of the amazing vids on the network by vidders such as Balistik, Luminosity, Charmax, Thedothatgirl, and many more. There are just about 4 right now but we plan on adding about 1,000 more to the collection but it will not be overwhelming as you will be able to search by Vidder, fandom, musical, artist, etc and find what you are looking for very easily.

This catalog can be viewed both inside and outside the network (so you can get a sense of the vids there). If you are not a member you can view at the following Google site link Vidders Catalog (to view the videos you will have to log into the site to see them). We'll update as we get closer to our 1K goal.

Yes, I shamelessly used the word Cat as an abbreviation for Catalog. The audience for Cats is far larger than Vidding even in a community discussion for Vidding so I hope you understand.

We plan to expand this project and create other catalogs to include other collections of awesome vids. 

If you have any questions send me a private message or if you think it's a question others reading this can benefit from leave a comment.

Welcome to another week. May you crush your to do lists and have fun!

For today's topic...it's been hot, like stuck to the vinyl, itchy skin, burning eyes hot. Or your pup just got through with a big fight with someone they care about. Or they know they need to have a talk with said person, but are dreading a fight. Or there is a thing that needs doing but they can't do it quite yet...either way, whatever the cause, your pup is feeling anxious and stressed. What do they do to try and calm themselves?
