i was only disappointed to not find a real pirate hat :(

i think it'll be up to you guys if it benefits the story for him to be visible or not. i think it would be interesting if he did, in that way i could at least participate more LOL but then we have to worry about continuity if there are other ghosts as well

They both look great!!

I went ahead and put all our characters together and did my best to scale everyone so you can see who's taller than who. We're all matching it's so cute omg

Ah, I'm so excited! I can't wait to get going with this.

Also, @Carina Moira will totally think Jack looks like Aldous Huxley, one of her writing idols, so she will definitely be into that.

I've been watching Gilligan's Island to get in the mood and was going to create a playlist I can share. :)

Also, I haven't really thought much ahead as to what happens when they're the island. My initial impression was that they wouldn't be alone, but for maximum drama and length, I was thinking it would be fun if they *were* alone for a period of time and for a while we had this just be a survival RP and introduce more magical realism elements later.

Maybe we can get together for a planning/plotting session at some point before the 19th? It would also be good to talk about where we see this going and also what skills our characters will have that will help us survive.

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

I’d love getting together! I have an idea of what Eliza’s skills are since she was a Girl Scout, but I think it would be really cool to see what everyone’s skills are. They would either clash horribly or work really well.

Since you’re thinking of a Survival RP first, what do you guys think about our characters going back to the boat and finding stuff to bring back, such as things to make shelter out of or semi-dry clothes? Maybe they could also try to find other survivors or their friends.

PFFFFT @Elinor those round glasses, man. Can't wait for their interactions lol.

I was thinking it would be fun if they *were* alone for a period of time and for a while we had this just be a survival RP and introduce more magical realism elements later.


YESYESYES. We can say it's a pretty big island, so maybe they'll find other stragglers later on. It's be pretty interesting to see what survival skills everyone has. Jack is good with his hands so he'd probably build a shoddy hut or hunting materials or something.

Why do I sense that Moira and Susan will have a hard time adjusting to survival mode? lol

@Valkria I love that idea! I'm sure most of the ship sunk, but I'm sure there's some stuff nearby they can scavenge. Maybe it'll be a tiny bit of food or resources to get them started. And, uh... probably dead bodies >_> and then.. omg... they would probably use the clothes from the dead bodies... THIS IS TURNING DARK FAST

*cough* so um yeah, I'm totally down for a write-in before starting the RP! How does next weekend sound?

I'm open next weekend! Also @Valkyria yes I was thinking most of the ship would have sunk, but some debris/bodies could have washed to shore.

Moira won't do well with the adjustment, but she *does* know how to sew and cook, so I was thinking that would come in handy, and she'll definitely be eager to help however she can.

Next weekend I'm completely free! Just let me know :)

Awesome! I'm open for any evening Friday/Saturday/Sunday. @HarryHardy I know you're at a way different time zone than us, so just let us know what times would work for you and we'll go from there :)

Sewing and cooking would definitely be handy. And then maybe Eliza and Susan could be hunters/gatherers if they can? Gosh we really going back to the caveman era lol

Also, inspired by what @Carina made, I came up with something of my own cause I had a little free time...

It's easier to come up with new stories than it is to finish the ones you already have. I think every author would feel that way.
