By the way, Slytherins, your icon is up in the JC Forums section
EDIT: And look! The boards have gone Slytherin colour!
Hey, hadn't posted it yet
Hey look! Slytherin is taking over! Mwhahahaha!
... or it's just St. Patrick's Day.
That would be awesome! I think that was my ultimate favourite Ravenclaw task. I have all of the songs from Dr. Horrible permanently stuck in my head, so I was singing the Severus version of it while reading.
Slytherin colours everywhere!
<---- And look, a shiny icon!
EDIT: Thanks, Vegeta!
Look, me, too!
Mesa icon issa slicka.
Thanks a lot, Vegeta! It was awesome playing with you, Mar, Cobra, yoda and Kat. An honour!
Amber, you already know I love you in all of your "Eau de Slytherin" glory.
I second this - Mar, Cobra, Kat, Yoda, Vegeta, y'all ROCK!
And already ideas are forming for the next game... But no, we definitely need a break... at least half a year...
Can I say that this game made a huge portion of my school term go by really, really quickly? YAY! It's hard to believe, now that it's over, that it ran for seven weeks... Whew...
... I think I'm on a Slytherin high right now.
I'm on a Slytherin high, too. And it did make the year go by so quickly - when I started this HC my New Zealand holiday was sooo long away... and now I have two and a half weeks to go (and I am soo not organised, ahh!)
Party in here, peeplz... (as it's already past midnight and therefore 16th March in my part of the world)
Crazy how games can do that for you, eh?
The thing that I really appreciate, though, is how much writing it made me do. All of those fanfic-based tasks... whew. YAYNESS from me, it kicked my Muse right into high gear!
Half a year, Maria? I was right, you are going senile. I'd be ready to go again next week
Probably not half a year. I was thinking a summer game - start signups in mid-late May/early June, get the game going in June/July, over into August.
BTW, Mar, this made me die laughing:
And possible... but also most likely to screw up my summer job, depending on where I'm working. I'll pray for Internet connection. Oh, and also the few weeks of Quebec goodness where I don't have Internet connection unless I travel an hour and a bit into Montreal...
This could be quite interesting to do over summer break when I don't have school. The week where I was off of school this time was downright insane since I spent all my time doing tasks and watching the Olympics.
edit -- Oh, yes, Mi, all of Mar's Python-isms had me rolling with laughter all over the Slytherin board. I LOVE that comic to pieces. I also love her Voldemort-as-Lumberjack and Hogwarts Inquisition ones from other years. We had waaay too much fun throwing in Monty Python references this game.
Glad to have made you die laughing, Mi.
I'm not quite sure if middle of the summer is okay for me - I still don't know when I'll take my holiday (we're planning to go to France with my parents). I think late August/September would be better for me... But that's still too far away.
That comic is beyond priceless
Actually that'd be great, because hopefully I'd be able to contribute a lot more; depends what sort of summer job I get, plus I also have the RPF, but I think I (and a lot more other people) would be able to commit.
I personally prefer this baby:
But yeah, doing Pythonesque comics is always fun.
Congrats to Slytherin on the win! I know it's been awhile. Actually, I'm pretty sure the last game Slytherin won was before I started playing.
Also, y'all are insane for that many unlimiteds. I haven't even seen what they are yet cuz everytime I try to load the page, it makes my phone freeze up.
It is quite a bit. Although I am using my 2008 MacBook, up to date and all, it takes a while to load that particular page. haha.
I did over 100 in the first day of the game. Then Ant and I started racing to 1000, then Idri did too, then I had to stop because of too much RL crap hitting me at once
But oh well. At least we didn't hit our early target of 10000 Unlimiteds
We didn't have that big of a target, though, did we? I thought we had a target of 5000 after we reached like 1000 during the first week of the game...
I can't remember how our goals went. I just remember Cobra and Amber chasing each other, and then me joining the race and getting to 600 and going, "Oh, we should get 1000 each!" and then I did 400 Unlimiteds to get past 1000 on Friday evening. That was rather exhausting.
