When Meanwhile starts up, I was thinking on kicking things off with a thread that'd be a memorial service for all the kidnapped kids, given at that time they won't know who survived but they will know somewhere between most and all (I'm not ruling out STAR stepping in somehow) of those kids are dead. Families, Meanwhile/pregame-only characters, any would be welcome. Would anyone be interested in joining in?

Are we going to be implementing the thread with the idea like the anti-Sadie thread where people are free to come and go? At some point I'll show up but not any time soon. And when would the date be? I figure there'd be an investigation for a few days at least before any sort of memorial would be formally held.

I'd figure as much. As for the date, hmm. Meanwhile is supposed to be set around the time the tapes come out (so about a couple weeks post-abductions) so maybe nebulously around then?

I'd certainly be interested! This sounds cool. Also, I think the section is fine, for want of somewhere more appropriate. Post-reveal makes the most sense to me for timeline--probably the most interesting narrative possibilities there, too.

Prologue says: wrote:The evening of the disappearance a candlelight vigil was held outside of Cochise High School. Even at the event, nobody voiced the one possibility that made sense.
So there is actually an official confirmation that where was a memorial service of sorts! Unless you're thinking of something else?

I'm interested, and I was thinking something like this, too. It's an idea full of possibilities. O:

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:

- Chat
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
-Skype
- Anything else I missed

I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.

This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.

-KamiKaze

Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.

I missed that, which might make the symbolic funeral redundant? Hmmm.

Staff, would we be allowed to make a Meanwhile thread portraying the vigil?

I'm interested, and I was thinking something like this, too. It's an idea full of possibilities. O:
My take on it (though get confirmation from Deamon as he wrote it) is that vigils are usually "We're praying for their safety," type things (it's pretty common when people are missing or in trouble). At that point, the students would not be known to be dead, so it'd be a bit different. That said, there's certainly some overlap with the idea of a preemptive memorial (as opposed to, say, one after they know exactly who didn't make it). I'm passing the vigil question along to the lounge--just noting that it has been seen!

It's primarily a symbolic funeral, a memorial since they know for a fact most or all of those kids (barring another rescue) are dead as hell. If that clarification helps anyone.
