Only because the content of the haiku is so damn funny. Check out that syllable-counting algorithm!

I NPCed for a second run of [livejournal.com profile] thekinginyellow's The Dance and the Dawn LARP (from [livejournal.com profile] locke61dv's RPG) and it was just as much fun as the first time, though harder to photograph (because tighter quarters). New pictures and old are up. It's quite possible to scrutinize them for plot points, so if you aren't spoiled for it and might want to play it at Vericon, well, don't scrutinize them like that!

Seeing the same scenario played twice with different players was really interesting. [livejournal.com profile] saxikath and I did that with Live-Action Clue once upon at time, but that was partly a way of debugging the rules of the game. Given that some of the characters are heavily based on Utena characters, [livejournal.com profile] thekinginyellow noted early on that it was like watching the TV series of Utena and then movie of Utena. Variations on a theme.

The players are mostly trying to find their true loves by the end of the game. Unless they're just trying to screw things up for potential true loves. I am simply fascinated that essentially the same pairings ended up happening this time around, though in some cases for different reasons. Emergent TDaTD behavior? If it happens a third time I'll be inclined to suggest that the GM is wrong about who should end up together. ;-)

Now I dissect the end games some. LARPfic! No, no, not really. That would be truly scary.

If you want to remain unspoiled for the LARP, go no further. )

Due to a last-minute cancellation, they really need one more player, preferably male. As I said before:

The Dance and the Dawn is an RPG [livejournal.com profile] locke61dv wrote, and there's a LARP spinoff running this Saturday (re-running a scenario I'm already familiar with, so I can't play). It's very spiffy, combining courtly manners, ballroom dancing, the occasional swordfight, and the search for Twoo Wuv. ... I recommend it.


I think [livejournal.com profile] thekinginyellow is now the best person to contact.

I feel the urge to write a proper update, but I fail to have the time--no, really, it's energy--to write rather than passively consume. Thus! Link sausage!

Also, GIP. *points to icon*

As forwarded to metafandom: gaudior's thoughts on cultural appropriation as an anime fan, in response to a rant she links to. It took me a few days simply to read all the comments the original post generated in various forums. Head too full, but of stuff worth thinking about.

And in bizarre contrast, via Neil Gaiman...
The equally megatalented, although significantly shorter than Thea Gilmore, Stephin Merritt, is being defended against what seem to me to be remarkably wrong-headed accusations of racism (he said on a panel that Zip-e-dee-doo-dah was a great song from a bad movie) this morning over at Slate.
... buh? There's more to it than that, but poor Stephin (except really I'm sure he can take care of himself).

P.S. If I type the letter h into the search bar of this browser and look at the autocomplete options, I get "Harvard Shuttle schedule", "Heimdall kills Loki", and "House, M.D. episode guide". Which somehow sums up something about the state of my brain right now. *dashes off to catch the shuttle*

EDIT Thursday: I think it's all cast now.
