Participants needed for a short survey!

Hello everyone!

I'm currently working on my master's dissertation and I need YOU to be a participant!!!

I'm conducting two surveys, one for unpublished writers and the other one is for everyone who likes to read. You would really help me out if you could take 5 minutes to answer one or even both of these. (They're really very short.)

Survey for writers

Survey for readers

You can find more information under the links or take a look at this LJ entry here

Thanks to anyone taking the time to do this, I really really appreaciate it.

So, since it's thursday...

How about a drabble? Maybe 500-1000 words told from your character's point of view at any point in your story. I noticed we weren't sticking to the daily challenges, and I wanna bring that back, so drabble thursdays are a go again!

I hope I'm within my boundaries as a member to do this. I am not a mod or even a co-mod of this community, I just miss it and wanna help it get back on it's feet.

Graphics Wednesday: How I Roll

Well, the first detail I should start with is that I don't play Dungeons & Dragons. I have no dice on my person.

How I conduct myself is simple. I know my situation, and I know what my chances are. I'm quite aware that my existence hinges on the continued survival of my former prey, so I shall continue to maintain their food and supplies. When one of these seven are at risk, I act swiftly and deliberately. To date, I find it unlikely that any of the animated corpses I faced were even aware of my approach before I removed their heads.

I try to keep things consistent, because all of us see stability as a positive. It's true that they value my consistency as a positive trait, so I choose to remain unchanged in personality and action.

Currently, I believe that Miss Grey unintentionally serves as the only chink in my armor, but no we shan't discuss that.



I don't wish to set myself above any of my current charges. That having been said, I would be ignoring the obvious, were I to forget that my blood-red eyes or fangs both come in pairs. I'm also the only one within our gated community who has them, because I've chosen not to sire any others like myself.


Twosday Tuesday

Only two? This may take some thinking to narrow it down, I have my fathers to thank for that, one father in particular who loves to meddle and is also a bit of a prankster. When they were designing me he decided to add a bit more to the mix, because the DNA of six people wasn’t enough.

Thanks to him I could never play murder in the dark, and hide and seek was difficult. Well you try hiding when your skin glows. Also, makes covert missions a tad complicated but then, when are they ever simple?

Or maybe the markings on my back, people tell me they are very fetching, that they have a natural elegance. I’m just relieved I didn’t end up having fur, as is, I just have the markings of tiger stripes stronger down my back, but also more faintly on my legs and arms.
Then there are my eyes with their golden glow, even if I pretend you’re not annoying me my eyes give it away. Not to mention that damn third eyelid, or to give it it’s scientific name my nictitating membrane, that spooks people the first time they see it.

Should I go on? Freaky enough? Yet, I can blend in with you all and you would probably not even notice me, I’ve mastered the art of not being noticed. You master that skill when your most useful talent is your strong survival instinct.


Twosday Tuesday

Humans are designed to a certain level of symmetry: two eyes, two ears, two hands, two feet... This means that asymmetrical features tend to stand out. Give us two examples of things that make you stand out from the others.


Munday Monday

What do you feel is the biggest obstacle for you when it comes to getting into character for your creations?


Roleplay Sunday

Everyone needs to unwind sometime. Tag a post with RP and find a way for you and others to relax and have some fun. Saving the universe can wait... Right?
