Late blooming flowers lie frozen underneath the stars... [19 May 2005|07:54pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Hey lovelies. It's Fawn, and I, too, am bringing a new Potential into Nowish. Many of you are already familiar with my Isabella, aka Izzy, played by the molto bella Katherine Heigl. But here is here background, as well as her revamped storyline to make her fit Nowish. ;)

Blue like the winter snow in the full moon...Collapse )

So that's my Izzy for you. Outside of the canon world, this character is the nearest and dearest to my heart. She started out as just a reason for me to get to play a character played by Katherine Heigl, and explore some aspects of the Catholic faith, in a time when I was really needing to. She ended up being my most developed OC character ever, and whereas I started her out in one game, once I had her, and fell in love with her, and started getting people hooked on her, I made a decision to only ever bring her into a very, very special, established, wonderful game, such as this. So, be good to her!

I will be bringing her in either tonight, or if not, definitely this weekend. You'll have to excuse my slowness of posting, but they just changed all of my medications, increased them, and added some, so I have been zombie girl, and it's been hard for me to post some evenings, so it may have to wait until either tomorrow night or Saturday morning.

If you would like to scene with her (or Tara or Dawn) let me know!!!

Also, I've never really established who Isabella's father is, or what he is, what ties he has, etc. So if I come up with something interesting, and the Mods That Be approve, look for that. ;)

And, yours chars may feel free to call her Iz, Izzy, Isabella, Bella, whatev.

Casting Changes and other info! [17 May 2005|07:28am]

[ mood | energetic ]

Due to some RL stuff, both Sara & Sheena will be stepping down as Lorne & Gwen. We appreciate all the efforts they've made in the months they've been here to this comm!

(No, Lorne & Gwen won't die! *L*)

Actually, once Shang-Da's nightclub re-opens - giving the poor kids a much-needed place to hang out, relax, and have fun away from prying eyes, we will be moving Lorne & Gwen over there to "run" the business. They will be NPCs that anyone may feel free to use and move about!

Help me in congratulating Jessie A on being a new aunt! *hugs her* That's fabulous, and we're all excited for you!!! <333

We're slowly updating the website bit by bit, but drop us a note at apocalypse_nowish@dreadmachine.com if there are banners, awards, colorbars, layouts, etc that we've been hosting and you need the new URL for, please! (Or just post here, whichever!) Eric will work on the new claims banners for nowish_claims (if there's anyone else who wants to, claim away!) And GAH, sorry no update done, lots of doc appointments for me lately, but as you can see we're moving into the next story arc! A new potential has joined us, and Spike & Dru are on their way to cause trouble!

Be ready for major happenings after they complete their "mission" - yes, this means every character!

Thanks again to everyone, keep up the good work, and next month - AGW! Don't forget to email us your new banner submissions!!!

Love, Jo

One Down... [12 May 2005|01:51am]

Well it has happened, and trust me it was one of the hardest things I have had to write... *so far*
(winces for Andi).

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you all for your own little part with Anya as she moved into this game.

Eric and Jo - You gave me a shot at her. I had never played Anya and like most of the Anya's out ther I started off with a bunch of posts about money and sex. However after time I got more comfortable and you let me take her character where I wanted. There was never a doubt from you that I couldn't pull it off and I appreciate that.

Tara - Goodness how much I loved the whole Kennedy/Anya bickering. The whole moment when I had Andi drag Kennedy off in the middle of Anya bragging about "getting Sexy" with Willow?? Hilarious!!

Amy - The body swap was memorable to say the least. Cordy with small Anya shaped boobs just killed me. Plus the advice she gave Anya about Xander was heard, trust me.

Eric - Getting drunk with Gunn was definitely an adventure.

Kate - Even though you aren't here, your Andrew was definitely a good friend to my Anya, and the fun I had granting wishes for him during AGW I will never forget... sorry you can't comment but hit me on aim ;)

Brian - Again, not here anymore, but Groo was definitely someone that Anya should have gotten to know better. They would have had a lot of fun talking very literally to each other.

Anne - Goodness... the wish that finished her. Not only did you make her exit hard to post, your own comment toward her end was so raw and real. I always enjoy writing off of your characters and this was no exception. (also coffee with Kate was nice too, a moment of normalcy before the end)

Robert - Ahh, my Xander here. You wanted them back together and we worked so hard for that moment to happen, and when it did I was really glad that it had. It didn't feel forced or something that shouldn't have happened. In another world they could have been very happy.


To anyone else that spent the time to read my posts, or IM me with laughter or tears I appreciated it all, and Megs my support for posting that up, I am glad you were there while I did it.

I an only imagine that posting this for Andi will be harder, but I will tackle that when I get to it.

Thanks to everyone for making my Anya's path so amazing while she was here.

- Christina

Big Goings On [11 May 2005|11:20pm]

[ mood | mellow ]

Well, since I'm feeling pretty good, it's time to get back in the RP and mod saddle.

First off, there's a very big round of applause due to Christina, for the amazing and tear-jerking Anya post. Like the rest of the writing she's done here in the last 11-some months, it was fabulous. Thanks for the great close to Anya's story (as far as we know *L*)

Second, like I said, it's been nearly a year since we opened our doors-- the official anniversary will be June 8th-- and so it's time to talk about what we've got in store for the big event. Yes, we're going to have Anything Goes Week once more, probably June 8 through June 15. We know a lot of you have been looking forward to that for six months already. ^_^

Another thing we'd like to do? A little updating. The banner that (used to) adorn the info page (and will again by this weekend) was designed at the very beginning of the story. A lot has happened, and a lot is still in store, so we'd like to do something new. And, we'd like you to do it.

So, here's how it'll work. Graphics peoples, have at it, and we'd love for you to collaborate with our other, non-graphicky but very creative writers to come up with ideas. The more people involved, the better. Submit as many banners as you'd like, email them right to apocalypse_nowish@dreadmachine.com (nobody gets to peek but us) before June 1st. Then, there'll be a 'secret ballot' vote by all the members in the game, and the chosen one will go on to decorate the info page.

Have fun!

Oh, and one more thing-- we've been at the pretty good pace of 1 new post per day, average, so keep posting! We know there's a couple of folks who're unable to, but we also know there's plenty who can! ^_^

*SNIFF* [12 May 2005|01:38am]

Pardon me, I am curently sobbing all over the Anya post!

*throws grape*

Just for old times, ya see.

And our winner is... [03 May 2005|02:18am]

[ mood | sick ]

Congrats to the winner of "Best Thread" for April! As I said, it was only by one vote, so every vote counts! Now, let's give a round of applause to...

For the moving thread where Cordy & Fred apologize to Wes and their friendship is renewed!!!

(2 Stakes | Stake Me)

Congrats & FYI.... [29 Apr 2005|12:41pm]

[ mood | awake ]

Robert is moving and will be pretty much computerless (unless he sneaks online at work *L*) until sometime after his move and getting DSL all set up. If there's anyone else we should know about (besides Winnie), please post here! :)

Don't forget, voting for our comm award will end tonight! It's very close, and a few people still haven't voted yet! *cough* Amy Sheena *cough* *puts on Amy's halo*

Lastly, congrats to both Anne & Megs for some awards they were nominated for a long time ago and *just* now got a banner!!!

Anne for "Best Lilah", from slayerchoiceaim

Megs for "Best White Witch Willow" (Season 7), from josscars_weekly

Congrats to you both, and of course, congrats to everyone here period! We all enjoy our little family of great writers!!!

Love, Jo

Not sure. [28 Apr 2005|02:00am]

I wasn't sure about this, but I thought I'd say something anyways. If you guys prefer song-posts to go behind a cut, just let me know and I'll throw one on. I'm sorry for how long it took me to get this up.

(1 Stake | Stake Me)

The sun has set... [25 Apr 2005|09:36pm]

[ mood | predatory ]

... make way for the vamps. *L*

Jessie & Dan, feel free to post Connor, Kyle, and Darla now! Everyone else, feel free to let your characters sleep if you want, or if your thread isn't complete, just be aware the sun is gone (like um... poor Anne & Kate going to the shelter for the kids!)

Speaking of, once Anne & Kate return, Celeste will be joining the group as well as... someone else. (HA! That's all I'll say for now! *wink*)

Thank you to everyone who let us know if they were having RL stuff that's affecting posting, BTW. It's all we ask for - let us know! :)

Amy did a bunch of claims at nowish_claims, and everyone else, don't be shy! Jessie, your banner for canibeanne is done!

Lastly, don't forget to vote!!! Go HERE and vote - it's really really close!

Update from Anne [23 Apr 2005|08:03pm]


Just letting you know that my mum has finally departed, and I've had a couple of hectic long days at work, but I should be having FOUR days off as of this Sunday, so YAY! I should be back in the swing of things and catching up on all my threads. *hugs all around*

I'm Officially Back! [18 Apr 2005|10:32am]

[ mood | busy ]

Hi everyone.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I am officially back from vacation. I must say it was fun while it lasted. Oh how I miss Vegas already... Can't wait until I go back.

That said...

I will be posting Anne soon. Hopefully some time today or tomorrow. Is there anything that I should know so as far as plot go? Anything in particular? Let me know.

Recap & Quotes [15 Apr 2005|03:59pm]

At last they're done! Wow, it's been just about a month since the last one of these (just before the visit from wishingwillow, guidy_goodness, et al), and so it's a decent size, though for a month of Nowish, it oughta be a lot bigger (hint, hint). *LOL*

What's goin' onCollapse )

What'd I say?Collapse )

And there ya go! Also, remember to get in your nominations for Thread of the Month in before next Friday, April 22 (Earth Day!), so we can vote on them the next week. All threads/posts in the month of April are eligible.

(3 Stakes | Stake Me)

Updates and info! [15 Apr 2005|08:45am]

[ mood | busy ]

Okie-doke... so some people have been sick, some on vacation, and I know some will be having limited net access shortly (mainly Robert, Dan, & Jess). If there are any people I am missing who are having difficulties posting, please let us know! Please please please! KTHNX.

The sun is beginning to set now, BTW, so if you want to start wrapping up threads (so our vamps - mainly Connor, Darla, & Kyle) can play, that would be great!

Don't forget the posting rule on the front page - if you have questions about it, ask. Please! That's why we're here. If you have character ideas, also ask!!! :)

The Nowish website has been updated (took a LONG time!), so check it out - http://www.dreadmachine.net/nowish ! When you click on the "Dawn" icon now, for example, it should take you to bloodtied_dawn's LJ. Plus, all the last awards are up as well... make sure we've got all your info correct and if not, let us know!

The first of the nowish_claims banners are done, and Eric will be working on more slowly, day by day, so bear with us!

It's Friday, so recap/quotes will go up today (it's been a slow month due to the many people absent), and also we will *try* to have our Nowish Chat tonight, 8PM Pacific! Bring ideas for your characters, be prepared to post like nuts, etc. And, uh... if we have probs w/AIM, we'll switch on over to Yahoo.

Running tally of characters who have figured out most of the spell:

Buffy - pretty close to figuring out it's the questions that do it
Willow - knows about the questions
Tara - knows about the questions
Wesley - knows about the questions
Fred - knows about the questions
Gunn - pretty close to figuring out it's the questions
Cordelia - knows about the questions
Angelus - fairly certain its the questions
Lilah - fairly certain its the questions
Kennedy - thinks the spell is only affecting her
Lisette - knows about the questions
Andi - *thought* the spell was only about Kenn, but is figuring it out slowly
Shang-Da - revealed his secret to Dawn - no longer under the spell!!!!!
Safi - knows about the questions
Lorne - knows about the questions

Ok! That's it! Bap us if you have questions, again, that is why we are here!!!!

Love, Jo

[ mood | impressed ]

This Month's Winnah! [31 Mar 2005|11:00pm]

And so, another month comes to a close here at Apocalypse Nowish (#10, if you're counting, and if you're looking forward to Anything Goes Week, pt. 2 *L*) and it's time for this month's Best Thread, as selected by you, the writers.

*drum roll*

And you picked:

A big ol' round of applause for Dan and for the solo!

Awards News [25 Mar 2005|10:56pm]

[ mood | pensive ]

Hey, everyone! Well, now that we're back, hopefully y'all have enjoyed your vacation, too. *LOL*

First off, some recent awards:

A round of applause, please!

Second, just to make it official, the mods of Apocalypse Nowish have decided to ask that the community no longer be nominated or considered for nomination at any of the various RPG award communities on both LJ and GJ. As it seems that it is not possible for Nowish to participate and do well in such communities without certain unfortunate and, in our opinion, unfair, questions to be raised, we feel that it is best that we eliminate the problem altogether.

We will keep the awards Apocalypse Nowish has won in the past year, under the confidence that they were earned and awarded in good faith.

If the community as a whole is currently nominated in some sort of award community, that's fine, but there will be no further nominations. Nor will Apocalypse Nowish as a community continue to submit nominations. Individual writers who wish to nominate themselves or fellow players (but not the comm) are free to do so. It is also left to invidiual players to determine their own level of continuing involvement with such award comms so far as voting is concerned.

The in-community Apocalypse Nowish awards will continue, as they have since they were instituted.

Thank you all for your contributions, and for supporting Nowish both with your work and enthusiasm.

Hello & Goodbye! :) [25 Mar 2005|05:16pm]

[ mood | content ]

So while it's sad to see Ginni have to leave us, please help me in welcoming our new Dawnie! Y'all already know her, actually. *L*

Fawn has been kind enough to take over the role of my little sis! *loves on Fawn* Same contact info, etc, etc. She's feeling slightly better (yay) and will be poosting both Tara & Dawnie by this weekend.

As for others who are going on vacation or who are trying to work their characters back in...

JessA (think I'll just call you that now... or maybe Angel? *L*) - If that idea we discussed for Anne works, lemme know. That way while you're on vacation, you won't need to stress about posting, too. :)

Jessie & Dan - Totally cool for Connor, Kyle, and Darla to come back with the next sunrise. There's a Spike post up for Dru since they are safe in W&H, and as for Safi and Giles? They should be under the effects of the truth spell at the hotel. There's a new Buffy post open to everyone if y'all wanna jump in, or hit us up if you have a different idea for the characters. :)

Tara is ill, so send out your good energy to her! And now that we have some nomms, I'll get the voting all set up by this weekend too for our Nowish comm award!

Love, Jo
