So, what do we do with Gulfside Rest?

  Ranma / Ah My Goddess! Crossover: Divine Patronage
Posted by: STMPD - 01-11-2021, 03:23 PM - Forum: Other People's Fanfiction - Replies (13)

At Bob's request, I'm putting up a separate thread for This brand spankin' new fanfic, so it doesn't clutter another thread.

Basically, Urd becomes Ranma's divine patron of sorts. She sends him on minor errands, meddles with his love life, etc. It's funny so far. At least the first two chapters are, the third is more basic setup of how the whole shtick is supposed to work plus Urd passing moral judgement on Ranma's inadvertent harem situation. She's got all the funny dialogue so far. I need to tweak that.

Things I'd like to do:
- Have Ranma call Hild 'Hot Mom Satan' or something like that
- Of course Hild actually puts that on her throne room’s door in a little brass plate
- Bounce Ranma off of a pubertastic Skuld newly obsessed with heavy weaponry
- Render Lind a psychotic hoo-rah drill sergeant, maybe make a full metal jacket reference or two
- But play Belldandy absolutely straight
- Get Peorth in there somewhere
- Make Keiichi a minor god of Japanese Motorcycles
- Maybe have Sayoko kidnap him to build the Mishima Group the Best Motorcycles Ever No Seriously
-And then somehow her Mishima Group is the same as the Nuku Nuku Mishima group - or would it be funnier if they were two separate groups? 
- so of course Ranma meets Nuku Nuku and she falls in love with him because of course she does
- Somehow involve Sailor Moon and company, have Urd and Setsuna time-travel fight, which is actually a catfight in the time of the dinosaurs or something stupid like that
- Urd hooks up Ranma with a few lonely girls who may actually be said Senshi (Ami and Makoto?) and this makes his harem problems even worse
- Blow up the status quo of the Ranma gals
- Maybe have Mara give them all wishes to set them against each other
- Have Mara reveal her undying love for Urd - not sure how she’d react
- Elevate Kodachi to the status of Actual Romantic Competition
- Prove once and for all that Ukyo is Best Girl anyway
- Reveal that Kasumi is actually a Bodhisvatta from an adjacent pantheon with a bone to pick against Belldandy for 'imitation'
- Watch Nabiki goad Ranma into doing coke (but fail, this is a wholesome fanfiction)
- Enslave poor Mara to a progressively corrupted Nabiki's whims
- Basically make Nabiki the new goddess of Neoliberalism
- Bring back Skuld's little robo-gal because she was so cute
- Make Rally Vincent somehow Urd's bastard daughter (They’re both brown anime girls!) and have an entirely senseless and extremely short arc where Urd and Ranma interfere with the events of the Gunsmith Cats manga once I read more of it
- 'Bean Bandit - Him Drive Real Good'
- Confluence of the harem protagonists - Ranma and Keiichi meet Tenchi and re-enact the events of a stoner comedy or two
- Of course there has to be a D&D or video game episode
- And of course someone has to say the phrase ‘NOT ON MY CHRISTIAN MINECRAFT SERVER YOU SONOVABITCH’ completely seriously
- Get Skuld hooked on the prototypical internet, or 2chan, then turn her into an evil meme-spewing gremlin who makes Umaru-chan look wholesome by comparison
- Or, I dunno, have Skuld join Hokago Tea Time and turn it into a techno act because that’s all she listens to (it’s 1996)

Posted by: Bob Schroeck - 01-08-2021, 10:49 AM - Forum: Politics and Other Fun - Replies (3)

So you may have heard, over the past week or so, of the woman who assaulted the 14-year-old son of a (Black) Grammy-award-winning musician in a New York hotel, accusing the boy of stealing her iPhone -- a phone which it turns out she left in an Uber car and which was returned to her fifteen minutes after she tackled the kid and injured him while trying to wrest his iPhone out of his hands.

You may have heard that she left the hotel before police arrived and subsequently returned to her home in California before she was identified as Miya Ponsetto of Piru, California.  You may have heard that Ms. Ponsetto has had a prior brush with the law, being drunk and disorderly in a different hotel.

What you may not have heard is that California police have arrested her on a fugitive warrant from New York.

Meanwhile, her attorney is begging everyone to have sympathy for poor little Miya.

EDIT: Save for the racial aspect of the assault this probably wouldn't be in politics. But hey, we needed a little distraction from everything else.

  fanfiction.net down
Posted by: hmelton - 01-07-2021, 08:32 PM - Forum: General Chatter - Replies (9)

Is anyone getting into Fanfiction.net all I get is a DDOS delay that hangs on 5 seconds

Noticed Fanfiction.net was down yesterday afternoon in the middle of reading a fanfic I had put off reading since last Novermber and was about two thirds of the way through.

Very aggravating.

I have done all the work arounds I could think of, such as trying the mobile site, flushing my browsers buffers and even starting up one of rarely used emergency browsers and trying the site.

Finally I tried "Down for everyone or just me" and it said it was "Down for everyone."

JUst checked it a hour ago and it still says it "Down for everyone."

What's going on? Any one heard anything?

  Changeling RPG Bundle for Covid Relief
Posted by: Shepherd - 01-07-2021, 12:05 AM - Forum: General Chatter - No Replies

According to the Onyx Path weekly meeting notes:

Quote:I’ve talked through most of 2020 about the effects of the pandemic on our creators. Well, last week, all of us at Onyx Path were saddened and shocked to hear that decades-long White Wolf creator Jackie Cassada had died of Covid-19.

Jackie and her partner Nicky Rea were the sort of writers that developers love working with: creative, conscientious, and kind...

Because Nicky has also contracted the virus, but seems to be recovering, yet still has massive hospital and other bills due to what they have been through, Satyr Phil Brucato has established a GoFundMe campaign to lend whatever financial support folks can: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-author-a...-nicky-rea

In addition, Onyx Path is working with Bundle of Holding to run a C20 sale designed to assist Nicky. We are working with our partners, as well as Bundle of Holding, to send all of our proceeds from the sale her way.
The Changeling 20th Anniversary Bundle of Holding is now up:

  "Canada Reads" 2021
Posted by: robkelk - 01-06-2021, 01:10 PM - Forum: General Chatter - Replies (1)

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Canada Reads. The long list is up - we'll know the shortlist next week, and the competition will take place later this year. (And then another red link goes into the navbox on All The Tropes, because I seriously doubt we have work pages for any of these.)

In the meantime, if you're looking for something to read, maybe one or more of these might be of interest.

We probably want to turn off replacement of open-parenthesis-R-close-parenthesis with the registered-trademark symbol, at least in Politics.
