I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to run this whole comm; since I'm planning on doing stuff for the next two months, there is lots of time and space for input from you lovely folks! I do want this to seem like a very long, virtual birthday party, so I'm trying to think of games we can play online, and ways we can maybe get together to read/watch the same thing at once. What are some activities you would like to do? Things I'm considering are recs, scans, music, round-robin fic, and silly discussion posts. Possible games include hangman, puzzles, a scavenger hunt, pictionary, and Kon Has Never. But I'm not sure how to virtualize all of them! I'll probably post once or twice a week, but I don't want to set too firm a schedule. So please comment with any suggestions, questions, anything!
Now on to Hangman. For those who don't know, each dash represents a letter, and you leave a comment guessing one letter. If it's in the word, I'll reveal it. If it's not, the little guy gains a limb. When he has fully materialized on the platform, he is dead. If the word is guessed, he is saved! If you guess the word, you win, uh, the satisfaction of heroically saving his life?
