Acy sez:
They are each returned to the very point they left from. There's some
personal and interpersonal backplaying of what happened between then and the
point sometime in the future, after everyone's had the chance to have been
and gone, when *our* plot starts up (whatever it may be).

Malamanda sez:
That's what I was thinking form the start. I think it's also the best way for us to get the max out of the character developement we've done and angs- er, the conflict and awkwardness of meeting up again.

Plot as it Stands sez:
The idea so far seems to be that we have Borogravian dignitaties show up in Ankh-Morpork (with Mal and Polly as part of the diplomatic mission in some way), and someone get killed. Possibly involving the post office or magic. And a ball at the Vimes-Ramkin home, just because it's a fun way to get everyone in and I like to piss off Sam.

Becca sez in addendum:
I thinking it would be best not to play it (or most of it) as one big thread or anything. There are juuuust too many of us. Who is involved will vary depending on what particular part of the plot it is, etc., and those can probably be done as different posts and the like. And people can do as many or as few scenes more individuually, too. So, for example, Stefanie, you don't have to worry about being in anything, but if you wanted we could keep you up to date, and Sax could make an appearance when you wanted her to.

Um, you guys this going to be REALLY COOL.

In addendum to Becca's addendum:

That's the organization I was thinking of. Apart from anything else, there'll be RP opportunities just getting people into position (well, for Mal and Polly there certainly will be) that can be done completely without reference to the major plot.

Basically I figured it would just be a big shared AU 'verse, for us all to play in as we please.

*nodsnods* Yes, exactly :). Phweeeeee!

Oh, the crack. :D

Okay, so for how we're playing the whole weren't-we-just-on-a-tropical-island? bit, do they remember being there? Or do they just remember certain Feelings and Urges associated with being there?

(because desperate sex in the mailroom/HEM building? Guh.)

Malamanda and I have been figuring they remember it all properly.

(Yes. Guh.)

Guuuuuh <3

Do a three-way-thread with Duo with us please!

GUUUUUUH is right. *approves! not-so-secretly!*

I agree with the remembering it all properly. From their point of view island-y-ness Really Happened, unless anyone has any objections.

(Though that means I should really confer with Scott and Stefanie about the whole Sax-and-William-being-married-according-to-Vimes thing. Which can be amended for the sake of the rp, if need be).

Iiiiiii kinda want to come up with a name for a comm for this... *thinkthink*

flustered sex is love, basically :D

Yes, i like it that way best too. Getting dropped back into your body two seconds after you left it to go on a (insert length of time) long trip to the tropics is certainly going to screw with people. And there's always the fact that they're not going to be sure that say, the Sam Vimes in AM is the same Sam Vimes that they knew on the tropics. So basically, if they're all getting dropped back into themselves where they were at debut, the first person to 'get back' would know everyone else from the Disc but they wouldn't know him/her? And then, one by one, the memories would drop into the back of thier heads?

Is that right? Or is that confusing? Or do i need a cup of coffee before I start trying to work out the logistics of spacetime plotting?

(and I definitely pulled Moist to the island from some fancy dinner at Vimes' manor. So that should be interesting getting back :D)
30th-Oct-2006 11:40 pm (UTC)
Exactly :D. Muahahaha.

Ooohhh, yes, that is right. I hadn't actually thought of it, but yeah, that makes sense. And adds confusion and fun of that nature, especially when accidental references to TR start cropping up. Though they'll all have "dropped back" by the time we start up.

Polly and Mal will be so damn depressed, in their beginning. Alas.
31st-Oct-2006 07:27 am (UTC)
Mal's first before anyone! She's gonna be a disaster! And not really all that happy when Polly remembers, becuase sad polly=not good, either.

*wibble* Yes.

Sam's going to be (I think) the last one. So he'll get off easy :P.
