This is first in a long line of posts that will begin plotting for the Stephen King pups on the island. First thing we ought to get sorted is what kind of plot we're looking for, exactly. I'm still planning on temp-apping Flagg (however if anyone knows of someone else in-game who is interested, including yourselves, please let me know 'cos as excited as I am, it's mostly just that I want him on the island!) and I imagine a huge chunk of our plot will revolve around that.

I guess I'll kickstart the conversation by saying that I think what needs to happen is that Flagg needs to get his ass kicked and his rights read to him. Ideally, I'd like to see a plot when Randy arrives, maybe in a guise, maybe not, and starts playing his usual games. I would love for this to be a big-scale thing, but I know Tarie was planning on doing some chaos!plot with the Joker and I'm not sure if she still is. In the event that she is, I'd like to try and squeeze Flagg to fit in with that plot rather than compete with it, which I think could work nicely.

I have to admit, I'm a character-person, not a plot person, so I'm really looking for any and all ideas you guys can provide for a good story arc. Power-plays are considerably more difficult to achieve on the island, though Mania had the excellent suggestion that Flagg could start trying to amass a mini-Vegas, starting with places like the Catscratch Club and trying to gain influence through the island's booze production/what seedy underbelly there is. I thought the idea of an island mini-Vegas was great, and I'd love to work that in.

The other thing I'd like to see happening is some of that great SK metaverse coincidence, the idea that all of these people are connected. We've made some awesome progress on that front, mostly thanks to Mania's forthcoming tags with Lloyd on all of the Stephen King pups. So far, I don't think there's a single connection that hasn't been made. Here, let me be a geek and draw a chart.



Ummm, yeah, I suck at stuff like that. One of you could surely do a better job, and there's your impetus. BUT ANYWAY. Point is, we've done a fabulous job so far of integrating people. What I'd like to see is different kinds of connections forged (maybe Trisha and Ilse take a class with Scott, for example), and eventually, when Flagg comes, he'll be able to sense from each individual what role the character plays in the greater metaverse (some of which will be canon, stated or implied, some of which I'll have to make up) and that'll be what determines his attitude toward different pups.

So I'm all over the place at the moment, but this is basically a placeholder for brainstorming. Add stuff here as you think of it and basically just generate conversation with one another. What are the big things you'd like to see happen to your pup? What are your favorite Stephen King plot devices/tropes that we could inflict on these guys? How can we use island plots, like genderswitch, to further our own ideas?

Okay, I'ma let you guys figure stuff out on yer own now. :P

1) Holy shit this is AWESOME.
2) Even though it's totally King's favorite trope, no puppy/rabbit/random cute animal killing is allowed!
3) Uh, I shall have to ponder this further. :P

#2 I totally second that. I think Glen would have a heart attack if anything happened to Kojak. We need not lose Glueboy or Playboy(whut?!) either.

As this is coming up very soon, we might want to think on it. When Mania and I used age-down plot for Glen and Lloyd it worked out better than we had even imagine. We're still threading some of the fallout with that now(Jane primarily). It really worked for us and made for a very interesting plot that could have only have happened on TR.

For myself, I had not planned on gender switching any of my SK pups. Alain I would have done if there were 2 rounds, but unless I have a better reason, he's staying male while Cuthbert isn't, lol. The other person in their household is Isle. Will Sam be switching her?

Halloween was a frigging classic, man. :D

And Lloyd is a'switchin'. I've got no plot in mind for this (outside of mocking Bert), so I'm all open to suggestions.

Also, there's opposite plot coming up sometime soonish (which I don't think Lloyd's doing, but can be great for others).
