    Welcome to the Lounge!

    My names IrishEyedJedi, you can call me IEJ, Irish, Leah or ?Hey You!? I?m the Owner/Head Bartender of this lovely little Pub. Just look for me behind the bar or making the rounds if ya need anything. This is a universal social thread, meaning it?s open to everyone and anyone.

    Feel like talking about Star Trek, Harry Potter or why the Red Sox are awesome well then this is the place. I don?t mind debates but if I feel like they?re going in the wrong direction then I?ll throw out a free round of drinks and start a new topic. Please be respectful of your fellow members.

    Because this is a social thread I want people to know I have no issues if you say the name of a story. I like to take the GWG?s approach, we?re all writers and we should support each other. So if you got something new to show, let us know. HOWEVER, if all you?re doing is dropping titles like they?re hot, then I might ask you to take it down a notch.

    Above all I want everyone to have fun.

    *Opens the doors to The Falcon?s Lounge*

    We?re official open for business

    Unfortunately if social threads get over 10K, they have to be closed. *news to me, but then again, I'm very new*

    Glad to be here, Irish!

    Hello there. I'm new to these parts, apart from recent responses to the 10-minute challenges.

    Historically, I don't do well in these social, based-in-a-pub threads; don't know what to do, how to handle myself.
    Invariably someone installs a jukebox, others start singing karaoke, then posters start hitting each other with fishes?!?!

    I mean, what the frag is that about?

    And then I have to start Zatting people...so if you get more than four additional posts out of me, you'll be doing something right.

    I mostly lurked over on the Fortress too. As I really need some time away from all the challenges I have decided to do, this will be a good place to visit, kick up my heels and chat (and probably whine about my lack of progress with the challenges - do you have cheese?) Nice name for the place!

    *strolls casually in, growing entourage of OCs in tow*

    Hey, nice place ya got here! Used to lurk quite a bit in the Fortress, thought I'd check out the new digs.

    *spys large buffet opposite the bar*

    Okay. There's food. You guys have got me!

    Seems real quite round the boards lately. I guess things get cricket-worthy once all the kiddies are in school? Ah well, more writing time then and less posting! That rampant stampede of challenges is calling me.

    I was listening to Battle of the Heroes on my way home from work...

    Where I work everyday almost feels like a battle :p so I thought I'd have some inspiration for the rest of the afternoon :p

    It's not the younglings that are the problem, it's certain co-workers..... :p

    *digs in bag for mp3 player, and proffers it*

    "Got a couple of tracks from Forever Faithless and the soundtrack for Blade: Trinity. Can certainly recommend ther former, though the 'soundtrack' does seem to be missing some music from the film.

    *Looks quizzical*
