How many are familiar with milliways_bar
? Hands, please?
Really? Wow. Well, it's an LJ role playing community that allows crossover of every fictional character you can conceive of in a self-contained bar at the end of the universe (yep, Douglas Adams reference!), and which tends to spawn some addictively readable characters and thread lines. When it works well - and it usually does - it's brilliant. I'm hooked, really hooked. Those of you who have already found out about it know what I mean. Those of you who haven't, give it a try.
Those of you who are familiar with Good Omens, or Firefly, or just would love to read a wonderfully evocative bit of roleplaying, may I suggest this
bit to try? Even if you're iffy on the sort of thing as a rule, this is a lovely bit of writing.
If you find you'd like more of an overview of who hangs around, what's going on, and how it all works, I'd suggest millichannel
for daily thread summaries and links (the place is even more of a time sink than LJ as a whole) and this explanation
of the workings and characters at the Bar at the End of the Universe. Great fun!
