YAAAAAAY! I've missed this community. :)

I've been writing for as long as I can remember and up until a couple years ago, only ever wrote original fic. Then I started writing fanfic and it sort of took over my life. I'm back to having a nice balance between the two. Hah.

My journal is here: http://asphaltcowgrrl.livejournal.com/ and I have mostly m/m (both smutty and simply sweet), but also m/f stories as well. And babbling.

Balance is a good thing! Looking forward to meeting some of your characters <3

Question first - Aside from the question posed in this post (and noted to reply here), are we still replying to prompts via a -new- post, as in the past?

Bio second - Not much has changed from the previous 'about me' posts, to be honest. :)
-self: still live in Florida, though I've moved once or twice since the extended hiatus; also changed jobs.
-writing: I tend to stick with fanfic on the preferred fandoms (as well as test the waters on some not-so-preferred, via landcomm challenges) or write in my original 'verses (either created via RP or, again, for landcomm challenges)
-RP: my RPing has since been limited strictly to the 'verses created with the partner-in-crime (aka elari_brooks) or the occasional threads in charloft-past. ♥ RP-in-game didn't end well, the first time out, and I've still got the burn marks from it. While I'd love to get back into the fold, RPing with others outside general conversation (here or sixwordstories, etc) gives me the jitters HARD. :\
-characters: my characters here are Dree (heartof_thezone) who is an immortal bodyguard to the equivalent of the Wizard of Oz, and she has even more issues than she did pre-hiatus. o.O
+ Adora Cain (bythewhiteelm) who is technically an-AU OC (as her character died in the source material before she could have a back story) and is, in fact, an earlier version of Dree though I tend to play her canon-straight, as well
+ Stephen Connor (dr_connor_nih) who is a doctor for the NIH from an old NBC show called Medical Investigation (he doesn't get a lot of use, these days)
+ Maddy (madrosehatter) is a teenager who, also, hasn't had a lot of play, lately
+ startin_fires is a shared LJ for Rick and Mel, my married schmoops. Their story is kinda-sorta continuing via random prompts

Other characters that might pop up (or will at least get mentioned) are Audree (dree_brooks) (over on InsaneJournal), who is an AU of Dree that lives in a small neighborhood in Rhode Island. She was created for a city-RP that promptly died shortly after I joined. Her backstory, etc has changed quite a bit, since then, in an effort to not have her be such a clone of Dree (minus the immortality) .. I've been toying with changing the spelling of her name, which really won't affect much, as Dree is her nickname. ; (ms_fisher) is a new LJ, which I haven't really fiddled with yet. Her name is Emily and she works at the Magic Kingdom (aka Walt Disney World) Fun fact: Once the holiday mess was over, I was going to start in on old prompts and poke at her a bit...; (maxthemonkey) is Dree's (this LJ) nine-year-old, and he loves Star Wars and Toy Story and has a lot of issues. He also does not use contractions. EVER. just ignore that zoo thread from a few years ago.. he was really new. ♥; and Gil Grissom (trusts_evidence) from CSI. He was created for a game (see aforementioned burns) and has since split his time pretty evenly between the Uncharted Territories (aka Farscape) and Giselle (from Enchanted) I've got about half a dozen more characters that live inside my head (and/or have LJs of their own) and are always chattering.. they may or may not pop up over here.

Also, I have a -slight- obsession with Faith Hill (which you may notice, between Dree, Adora, other-Dree, and Emily ... I really need to step outside the sandbox...)

Enough wordspew! Long story short, I'm always ALWAYS up for conversation or threads or anything, really. seriously, I'm easily talked into creating new LJs at the drop of a hat. Just ask elari_brooks :D. And I'm very glad to be here. ♥

Hello everyone. I, too, am happy to see this community being revived. I'm an author and editor and I also play in the world of fan fiction. I'm always juggling multiple projects. I tend to write horror and erotica and some sci-fi and my main fandom right now is the MCU.

Hi all. I'm glad to see this community coming back to life. I'm magickmoons. I write mostly fanfiction, but have a couple of original fic ideas that I'm trying to tease out into something concrete. My main writing index is on my dreamwidth journal, but I maintain a fairly active presence here at LJ as well.

I'll probably be jumping from character to character. Last time I played here, I was working with Charlie and Leah (original characters created here). I may return to them, but I've switched focus lately, so I'll probably be working more with River and Sierra, a couple of twenty-something musicians / pop-stars who move in very different circles before they are thrown together on a project. I'm hoping to flesh out their characters and see what I can do with them!

Hey all, I've been writing off and on for about 8 years now, mostly for myself though I would like to publish a book once, at least :D I stick to fantasy and sci-fi though I do have a historical fiction youth story muddling around in my head.

I was active previously in this community, and my posts can be found under the taram42 tag. I've since changed my username and I'll be posting either under this name or penumbralchild

I welcome new friends, though I'm slowly in a transition to moving my life posts off of livejournal and onto blogger. I'll likely keep my writing here on LJ though.

In the real world, I'm a stay at home mom who is about to pick up and move across the country AGAIN (Florida to Washington and now to Michigan) where I'll finally get to fulfill a childhood dream of having my horse at home. I'm planning to be a wife/farmer/mom and try getting us self reliant more than we are now.

Wow that is super cool that you will have a self-reliant farm. That must take a lot of work!

Glad this place is back! I write in a few different fandoms, most obscure! I have a few muses as well who like to prance around in my head that you'll probably see here and they love to play well with others! Not much else to say! Sometimes I put story stuff on lj in my filters. I like new friends and if you want to watch me ramble about writing things, feel free to add me!

Welcome back! Interested to see how obscure is obscure! Can't wait to see your posts.

I'm really glad this comm is back, as it was one of my favourites. I usually post my OC's here in irregular intervals. My OC's are characters in original comics I'm making/planning to make.

But again, I'm very happy this comm is back. It was so much fun. ^_^

(Sorry if this sounds boring and curt, but I've tried posting this a few times before, but it wouldn't go through for whatever reason and I’ve had to rewrite it. Hopefully it will go through this time. ^^')

Hee. At least that means he can write about setting things on fire instead of doing it.... As much.

So now that this place is back up and alive I'll likely be running rampant and tormenting the masses. :)
Granted, anyone who remembers me in the way back when - this is not my personal journal but I think Lacroix is the one out of my characters that spent the most time around here, other than Kori maybe, and I need to actually remake myself a personal journal so I'm hijacking his for the time being.

I'm up for various degrees of whatever if people want to give me a nudge; most of my OCs you can find through Lacroix's journal or they'll pop up here now and then. I hope to see some old faces and meet some new folks!

I'll likely be joining the community with my personal journal once I get that sorted out for easier contact, for the time being dropping me a note through this one is good enough if you want to hunt me down.

Yay, I'm so happy this comm is back! I totally forgot that I used to be active here until about two minutes ago and saw that I had a tag here. I'm definitely going to start being active again, I'm trying my hand at writing a new kind of relationship (amazingly, I'm still the exact same person I was 3 years ago) which is turning out unexpectedly difficult and I'm looking forward to having charloft's help.

Hello to everybody here, old and new, it's gonna be a blast writing with you guys again <3

Edit: Oh, it's alright if we answer any of the prompts in the shape of a fic, right? I think I'd like to write character development in story form to practice as much as I can.

My best friend suggested this place a few years back and then life happened. We've kept rping but anything extra was too much for me for a while. Now I'm back to writing and working on a big project but I need something to make me write everyday or at least every other day. So glad you woke up again.

My friend and I rp together on LJ and on IJ. I play with a character I've been writing for the last twenty odd years. Noon or Noonie to her close friends enjoys winding up Hsu Danmei. I see his tag is still here so maybe he'll drop in sometime. #civ_barbarian

PS I have no idea how to make a tag... Not a clue

Glad to see this place full of life again! I've missed a good prompt comm and I always had fun getting my muses to answer and keeping my own brain active.

At least to start with, I'll have two muses participating, Hsu Danmei, whose journal this is...and he is a Highlander OC who I've been writing since around 2002. I RP him mostly over at IJ now and he has several plots he's involved with spread over different time periods, including with amandanoon above, and I'll be using all of those for his prompts. My other muse is an non-fandom OC Mark Carter (neidr_melltith), a rather unique immortal type, and although I RP him as well, his replies will be more directly related to the novel I'm writing that he's featured in (however, I reserve the right that if a prompt sings directly to his RP activities, I'll use that!)

I may bring in more muses if time and inspiration allow!

Hello! Lee, here. I've been on Charloft for ages, but under many different characters. My main ones are Rabastan (rabieslestrange, outofazkaban, and prettyakwrd) and Joker (itstimetosmile, and itstimetolaugh). As well as numerous other characters. Just excited Charloft has returned, etc.

Woo!
