I SWEAR I'M GOING TO BED RIGHT AFTER THIS. But srsly I'm so proud of my self 8')b I did this all in one night. I still have a couple sets of graphics to do and the FAQ to finish up when I'm NOT completely dead amongst some other small things, but for the most part I think it'll be ready to open within the week. I'll pimp it later today, but uh. I'M REALLY PROUD OF MYSELF RIGHT NOW ALS;KDJF OKAY GOING TO BED BEFORE SOMEONE ON MY FLIST MURDERS ME ♥

The streets of the inner-city slums of Babylon hum with a tense energy that none can see but all can feel; it is curiously quiet. There have been no shootings for a week. The empty bullet casings littering the street curbs are days old. Yes indeed; all is quiet and all is calm—at least, for the moment.

Downtown, it’s a different story; alive with lights and sounds, beautiful people stroll down alabaster city blocks in their glitz and glamour. Everyone is wrapped up in the energy that fills the air—downtown Babylon is the center of the universe. Rock and roll hasn’t been invented yet, but drugs and sex are all the rage.

This is the world of Babylon Noir, a pan-fandom roleplay set in an alternate universe. Its name comes from two sources— biblical accounts tell of the city of Babel, a place that “united humanity,” where everyone spoke the same language. Babylon is the Greek equivalent of Babel (and sounds better than Babel Noir 8Db) and like the city, in the center lies the great Babylon Tower, the highest skyscraper in the world. The second part, Noir, translates into “black” in French and was named thus as a throwback to the subgenre “film noir,” classy and slick Hollywood crime dramas usually shot in high-contrast, low-key black-and-white. Likewise, the inhabitants of downtown Babylon are stylish and beautiful, but the city’s crime rates are high due to corruption in the police forces and the nitty-gritty lifestyle of the slums.

Your mod is lanvaldear. Everything else is yours.



GOGOGO~
PS. I'll probably be doing some recruitments for another mod later when there are more applications being sent in, but for now I'm okay by myself. Does anyone want to be considered when the time comes? I'm only looking for one other person, so this is just a preliminary check to see who would be interested.

friends-cut

It's a pretty big one; I've never done this before and I really, really hate to but at this point, I do believe it's necessary. There's been way too many negative feelings and I can't take it anymore. I hate it when people are overly emo; it's really annoying and I can't deal with the added stress. If you can't see this post, then you've been taken off my flist. Under the cut are individual reasons for why I decided to cut you.

cut for more detailsCollapse )

No hard feelings?

THEONE
FRIENDING/CONVERSATION MEME


Sometimes, all it takes is ONE click for two strangers to suddenly become best friends. This meme is meant to be a fast and easy way to get to know people, whether you're looking for friends or just a conversation. All you gotta do is post your username and ONE interest. It can be literally anything at all: a fandom, a pairing, a person, a hobby, a food--be serious or silly and think outside the box; the possibilities are endless!
Don't be afraid to start a conversation with someone you've never talked to. We're here to share interests, after all ♥
Let's keep the wank out; anon is turned OFF.


↓ pimp it out

Leave me an anonymous comment pouring your heart out. Say anything. Tell me your stories, your secrets, those things no one ever asks but you wish to tell. Tell me about your love, your hate, your indifference, your joy. Tell me about what's inside of you when you're reading through these entries on your friends list, and tell me why you continue to come back here. Tell me anything. Tell me what you really think of me or yourself. Anything.

Everyone else and their mothers has this on their posts too, but just in case you have anything to say to me anonymously, I'm at your service. It can be big, it can be small; I don't care as long as you can get it out there.


Anonymous is (obviously) enabled and IP logging is turned off (I think; I can't say I'm horribly familiar with toggling around with comment settings so let me know if anything weird is going on).

ergh in other words, I've been really tired lately for no reason and I'm thinking of going on hiatus. I'm leaving next week anyway and it wouldn't be a bad idea to devote some time to studying so my brain won't explode while I'm there-------even though we all know that's most likely not going to happen anyway. ;alskdjfa;lksdjf

I'm not in a bad mood or anything. Well--not because of anything in particular. There's nothing to be sad about but on a happiness scale of 1-100, I'm currently sitting at about a 45.

PUBLIC because I think this is something everyone needs to hear.

Ahahaha flist~I wish everyone could just say to themselves "BUCK UP" and cheer up and everything would be peaches and cream. Alas. So I'm going to give my two-cents just...in general. And before I begin, no, I didn't name any names but there are some specific people who I thought of as I wrote this. I'm not nagging at you (so please don't think that), or telling you to STOP WITH YOUR EMO SHIT, MY GOD (since I do it too). I'm just letting you know my views based on what I've seen lately in patterns on my flist, particularly tonight, which is why I'm writing this instead of going to bed.

I've been tl;dr-ing a lot lately; please forgive meCollapse )

You guys are all good people--I wouldn't have you on my flist otherwise. But just...guhh know that there's something you can do about it, okay? It's all about mental and emotional growth. If you're ever feeling discouraged or anything, I'm here. I'm not on your flist solely to take up room and spam you with stuff about my boring life; I am a resource. USE ME. ♥

Also...where did all this assertiveness come from? I swear--I must be channeling my inner-Natalia or something with this new name 8||||

[EDIT] ALSO KINDLY IGNORE ALL THE RUN-ONS AND COMMA ABUSE AS IT'S 12 IN THE MORNING AND I'M VERY TIRED ORZ

orz I just kind of need to rant, so you can skip this if you want; just me addressing a couple of different people (but not by name so lolol don't worry). Disabled because it's not a big deal.

argh as;lkjfdCollapse )

...okay that last one was obviously about my parents. 8|
