Right now, the SK muns are as follows:
Lindsay [ Cuthbert, Scott & Flagg ]
Steph [ Lisey, Cort (temp, gone) ]
Nelle [ Glen, Alain & Trisha ]
Mania [ Lloyd ]
Sam [ Ilse ]
Emily [ Edgar (gone) ]
Elissa [ Henry ]
And I love you all very very much. x3
So there are a few things I wanted to address. First and foremost-- current/recent events, or a brief summary of the last six months-ish in SK town.
+ Henry Devlin arrives.
+ Cort Andrus arrives.
+ Scott finds and reads The Stand, and subsequently canon punctures Glen. Shortly after Scott begins to believe that the bookshelf has been giving him King books for a reason-- he suspects he's from one.
+ Cuthbert passes his coming-of-age test.
+ Flagg arrives, and finds Lloyd in the midst of the gunslingers' amazing Midsummer masquerade.
+ Cort disappears, right after roughing up Lloyd for bearing the sigul of John Farson; Flagg steps in just in time to see him go.
+ Henry receives his item, the lunchbox of Duddits Cavell.
+ Nick Andros disappears.
+ Alain, Bert, Lloyd, Flagg, Sandor & Aly all travel to Gilead, the homeland of the gunslingers, for homeplot. Upon their return, the gunslingers and Sandor discover that Marten-- really Flagg-- has been on the island for months, unbeknownst to them, and in the world before this one, Lloyd worked for him.
+ Sadly, Edgar disappears from the island. But Emily, you're still an honorary SK mun because bb, I know you're going to bring me another one. :D ... :|
+ Cuthbert receives his item, David the hawk.
+ Flagg kidnaps Glen Bateman and brings him to an out-of-the-way haunted house on the eve of the island's spooky Halloween transformation. Vampire!Lloyd finds them, led by werewolf!Kojak, and Flagg attempts to off both of his canon co-stars; fortunately, Lloyd and Glen manage to subdue him. Flagg is sentenced to prison for three months. ( In progress. )
+ Alain receives his item, a bonfire with burning effigies of Roland, Alain, Cuthbert and Susan. Cuthbert and Alain get the idea that Marten-as-Flagg has somehow done this with his magic.
If I missed anything, please let me know. Anything significant in the life of your pup, especially if it pertains to canon, should be added here. I like to keep track, and if I actually start doing this more often, it'll be a reminder for us all to be involved in each other's pups. :3
Right, so. Onward. The other thing I wanted to talk about was our future together. :'3
Ultimately, my ideal for the SK pups is to have them all interacting-- not necessarily on a really regular basis, but for all of them to have some kind of link to each other. I don't want to force it, of course. But I think it would be great if we could pay homage to their roots, and get them involved in some scary/thriller type plots, or at least put them in interesting situations together. Crackplots are ideal for this, of course, but Stephen King generally works with extremely ordinary settings in his stories, and there's absolutely no reason we can't exploit that. :D
For instance, Henry is from Dreamcatcher. As a kid who grew up in Maine, a snowstorm isn't exactly going to get him all PTSD-- but what if he's snowed in a cabin with a bunch of SK pups? What if Trisha believes that her God of the Lost has somehow found her on the island, sent a storm to lock her in? What if Scott begins to believe this God is the same as his Longboy; a malevolent spirit that's really on the island? What if Henry has read Scott's canon and begins to believe that Scott's cabin fever is beginning to look a lot like madness? What if Flagg makes jokes about Lloyd turning cannibal, or hoards the powdered hot chocolate?!?
See, guys. We can be terrifying. All we have to do is plot. Coming up, we've definitely got the winter weather to work with. I know that there was talk of a stuck-in-TV-land plot, we could totally work with that if it pans out. I have some item ideas for Scott kicking around-- one is hugely supernatural and I very much doubt it could get approved, but I might try anyway if I decide it's really the best bet for him. In a few months Flagg will be out, and while I am trying to rehabilitate himself somewhat, he can still cause trouble of the not-stabbing variety.
Another thing we might want to consider is doing a few canon-pimping posts in an attempt to lure more SK pups to the island, if we decide on some specifics we'd really like to have. We could pimp in-game and out of game to cover all our bases.
Basically, this is a post to holler you all home and remind you that even though things have been kinda SSDD around here, but I am offically taking a stand now even though as a community mod I have shown a regrettable lack of substance. D:
x3 Gimme palaver. Y'know, your thoughts and stuff.
