Well, in lue of the official closing of CW *puts roses on it's grave* I would like to extend and invitation for you to apply to a game I and a friend run...

This game takes place in RL (IE: August, 2004), post war. Lots of characters available, friendly people, laid back atmosphere. Here

We JUST started, so if you get in soon, you won't miss anything
feeling a bit ooc?

I thought I'd post this here since we're closing anyway. [09 Aug 2004|11:20am]


Through The Smoke takes place three years after the final duel between Harry and Voldemort.  Both of them dead, the smoke is just clearing...but through the smoke, a new war is on the horizon, with things a bit twisted.  A Riddle is rising to be the next Minister of Magic, while a Dumbledore silently rises as a new Dark Lord. 


We are looking for mods, before we start hiring players.  If you're interested, just AOL Instant Message MovingToBetterx, or e-mail tts_mods@hotmail.com.  We await your owl.

Drumhead Court [06 Aug 2004|07:22am]

[ mood | infuriated ]

This is what it comes down to.

Gwen and I have found out that several players have lied to us about their ages.

We are not happy.

As a result of this fact, we have decided to close the game completely, revoke the posting access of those we know to be underage, and blacklist the people involved. Yes, we are vindictive.

The reasons? Glad you asked.

- I am personally offended that I have been put into the legal position of child molester by rping smut with underage players, believing them to be overage. It may be a long hard slog to get it proved in any sort of court, but the people involved have indicated that there is a lot of parental drama on their end. This also worries me. Parental drama means vindictive parents.

- I am even more offended that the people involved who are overage chose to lie by implication, by inviting three underage players into a game that they knew required over 18, for legal reasons, rather than the fact that Gwen and I are ageist Nazi bitches. The reason that they gave, that we needed the players, has never held water, since we had something like eight people join that week, but it was not an issue that we chose to pursue. Instead, we chose to try to break up their incipient powergrab with the challenge rps.

- It is beyond the height of stupidity to actually post your age in your livejournal if you are joining a game and are actually underage. Only one of them was stupid enough to post their age of birth in their user info, but as it was complex to get an actual lj for that person, it's not that hard to believe. The other two both had their ages proven the same way.

I could continue, but will not.

The upshot of the matter is that steps are being taken. As mentioned, the closing of the game is one. The removal of posting access on all five players' parts is another. We will begin blacklisting all five as soon as possible.

To the parties involved - I am incredibly, incredibly angry at the immaturity demonstrated by the two of you. I wish, in fact, that one of you had ever contacted me, because then I could refuse to speak to you.

To the other three, who are underage - for what it's worth, Gwen and I are pretty convinced that you'll be good rpers, and additionally that this is less your fault, due to the circumstances of your arrival, than it is those who brought you in. We are, however, angry that none of you gave us the chance to know how old you actually are. And at this point, trying to convince me otherwise would take a birth certificate. However, if you had told me, after you were in, we could have cut a deal that would put no one in a position of being a child molester, and then we're good. Because whatever the legal status of the matter, and however hard it is to prosecute, to my way of thinking, I am guilty of that, inadvertently and via avatars. NONE THE LESS, I am guilty of it, and that pisses me right the fuck off.

You are all free to contact me, as is anyone else in the game. I apologise to the other players that things have ended so abruptly, but this has brought home to us the fact that whether we leave CW or not, we will always be associated with it, and we cannot trust the people who offered to take over as mods to behave in a fashion that would protect either of us. And I do not care that one of those people has rescinded their offer; that was after I made a number of posts in my journal about this issue.

I thank everyone for the time they put into the game. It was an enjoyable experience. If you have questions about it, or if you need a journal defriended due to wanting to take it to another game, let us know. You can reach me via my personal email, listed on the userinfo of this journal.

I'll see you all on the other side of this.

New update:

Since the game seems to be ending, I've decided to add a new kill status.

Daphne Noreen Greengrass will commit suicide in one week unless someone wants to kill her for me.

[ mood | grateful ]

I was considering what I posted the other day about taking a mod position.

I hope you all can understand why I'm withdrawling my recent will to be a mod after Cass and Gwen leave, but after much consideration about how the game will go after they leave, I realized that there is no point for me to continue a game where part of the heart is gone.

After the war is over, I will no longer be a part of the game. This has been the best experience with role-playing with me and I don't want to push what I have.

I realize that a lot of you may be dissapointed, or confused or maybe you won't care, but this is what I feel is right.

CW wouldn't be my game, and I don't want it to be anyone but Cass and Gwens.

Maybe in the future I will open my own game, but I will not be opening either of my characters for application. I don't deny that Daphne isn't my best character, but I have never come across a person that plays Hannah as good as I do, therefore, I will save this journal and take it on to my next game, but I will not leave my character open.

I love you guys and I really hope that these last moments before the war are everything we want them to be.

feeling a bit ooc?

[05 Aug 2004|12:56pm]

Having read the leaving post by our mods, I have to announce that I will be withdrawing my characters as well. Millicent without Snape and Pansy is pretty much non-functional, and therefore I will be disposing of her at the beginning of September. I'm afraid I will not be opening her up to be played, since I really can't imagine anyone would be able to keep track of the myriad quirks with which I have endowed her. I will keep Firenze around until Harry manages to defeat Voldie, since someone has to beat on the brat, but after that, I will be dropping him as well (and opening him up to anyone else who wants to play him), since Firenze without Harry and Snape just doesn't work. Emmaline, as a war character, is already slated for death.

Please know that this breaks my heart - CW was my first positive RPG experience, and it has been wonderful getting to know all of you, but I just can't see myself playing with Cass and Gwen gone, since they form the core relationships for my characters.

I'm sure the new mods will do a fabulous job, and I really hope CW continues as the wonderful game that it is.

I know I said that I'd stay here, but since I've been on hiatus for a month due to summer things and school starts in about two weeks, not to mention the fact that this game might close anyway... It's not fair of me to add onto the number of unactive Sirius players you guys have been cursed with. I don't know why most Sirius players turn out this way, but it annoys me and it ticks me off that I should be considered one as well.

So with that I take my leave and I'm extremely sorry for making all of you remember the past storylines back when I first joined. Please forgive me.

Hiatus and warnings [01 Aug 2004|10:05am]

[ mood | crappy ]

Activity Warnings:


All others were excused.


Hiatus notices:

cw_wood is still on vacation.
cw_firenze and affiliateds have just moved and will be available at some later point.
die_a_dishonour is not necessarily available until 25/8.


And, as ever, other things progress.

As a note, everyone should have their contact info on their user pages - it's come up several times that someone didn't know who played a char. That information should be available. I realise that we've asked for the information to be extensively updated, but I think we've gotten about as far as we're going to on compliance with that, and I'm tired of banging my head on the wall. So, you know.

Just a side note:

Sybll is now dead, according to Matt.. So that's one down, I would just like to be informed when my characters are murdered, tis all. :P

Next thing.. Justin is on the kill list, as far as I remember. So if you guys want to sacrifice him to the DE or if the DE want to kill him or whatever you want to do with him, it's fine.

I feel bad because I never really updated him, but.. At least that gives us one casualty to the Dark Side.

Any questions, comments or RP requests (please.. I have email and I miss RPs...) post them here.

So, I am back and very tan :)

Blaise and Bill are ready to talk again, so if you see me online, I'm good to go. But... I am moving next two weeks, so will be sparatic until I get the internet up and running. *hides*

Hey, all. This is Gwen!

I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up that my e-mail has changed. It's now graeae@gmail.com! Thanks.

[19 Jul 2004|11:14pm]

[ mood | cranky ]

Okay, I'm still getting comments to my email from the House party threads, and I want to remind everyone that that's closed as of Sunday.

You have until midnight tomorrow (ie, Midnight on Tuesday, the 20th) to get your thread to a point where you can pick it up somewhere else, and then I freeze the comments. Or explain to me directly why you'd like me to let them stay open and I'll leave them open.

In fact, the main point of this post is to find out if anyone reads these entries.

The board will still be usable by the members of the house, if they wish to use it to post notices and etc.

Mod post [18 Jul 2004|01:11pm]

[ mood | gloomy ]

All right. I thought I'd do this post separate since large chunks of information seem to be basically ignored.

This is a more traditional mod post, with a few points for your consideration. Two of them were mentioned in the last post, but hey. Repeating never hurts, at least when I'm pretty sure that a lot of people don't believe me about things that are said.

- OOC posts
Do NOT post to the ooc board if you are going to either put up a post that violates the rules, or if it is a notice of away. Notices of away MUST be emailed to cw_mods at yahoo.com. I, personally, hate it when I look on the board and the entire first page of my flist is away notices.

The only situation where an away notice is acceptably posted to the ooc board is if your email is not working. And yes, that happens.

- Interacting
We issued the challenge rps to ensure that people who did not normally interact would interact. There are a lot of comfort groups that need to be broken up. We're not saying you can't interact with the mun playing your partner, but it's good to talk to other people too.

If people continue to ignore the mods when they ping - and yes, this is happening - that's a bit of a problem. It's rather rude, actually. Even if you don't normally accept unknowns, you should at LEAST have deadgods04 and cujoowl added so that we can reach you.

If the game persists in being cliquey (and if people persist in believing that we don't mean it about the challenge stuff) it will become uninteresting to me and Gwen. And we're not staying if that happens. Not a threat, simply a fact. I haven't the time to persist with something that's not interesting.

- Challenges
For the third time in this post, we do mean those. They are mandatory. If you have a problem with doing the challenge, let us know and we'll see what we can work out.

- New rules
The rules page has been updated. We are not going to enforce the rule about a probation period until we take new people in from this date - ie, no one is on probation - but ALL other rules WILL be enforced.

You can find the rules HERE. I strongly suggest you read them, and tell us what you think. We welcome suggestions, and if you think something's poorly worded, let either of us know.

Activity warnings [18 Jul 2004|10:45am]

[ mood | cranky ]

It's time for activity warnings, hiatus notices, and reminders.

Activity warnings for this week:
__turpin (You didn't say you couldn't post, so I'm assuming you're still active.)

Everyone else seems to have been either exempt or to have requested an exemption on an emergency basis.


Hiatus notices for this week (or longer, if known - if so, dated)

cw_anthony (and affiliated chars) - Until 26/7
my_little_colin (and affiliated chars) - until 26/7
percyiweasley - Until 25/7
twilightfable - Until 1/8

ETA: poncymalfoy - Until 27/7

ANY AND ALL hiatus notices need to be emailed to cw_mods at yahoo.com. If you cannot access your email, posting to the boards is fine, but make sure that you mention WHY you are not emailing.


The following characters need to have their user info updated:


This is the format for the information that we want. Feel free to include more, but you have one week (unless you are on exemption for other reasons) to put this up.

Full Name:
Year Level:
Pets (if any):
Physical Description:
Background / Family History:
Interests / Hobbies:
Strengths and weaknesses:

And a disclaimer, something along the lines of this: Disclaimer: This is a character for the Kelly Street RPG. I do not own or profit from him. JK Rowling owns all the rights. The photos are of (YOUR PB HERE!), and I do not own any rights associated with his/her likeness.


Finally, we requested that people email us with specific information.

a) Your characters played (including war)
b) Your current AIM and email
c) Your location for timezone.

MANY thanks and a shout out to the people who did this. We have received this info from Tara, Jennifer, Lisa, Jason, Amiboshi, Cody, Tracey, Nat, and Orion. If your name's not on this list and not exempt above, we need to see it by this Saturday.

And no, we're not going to put it together by extrapolation. This is a requirement.


A reminder about the Challenge RPs, all of the pairings of which are listed in here.

We are serious about this.

Also, when you post these rps, please put, in the subject line, "Challenge RP: Character A and Character B." And the first person who actually puts Character A and Character B will be beaten. You have until August 10th to either do the rp or tell us why you can't, and we will decide the course of action at that point.

Thank you.

Intro post [18 Jul 2004|11:34am]

Hi! I'm Paula or Orion, whatever you call me is fine. I've never done rp before, so please tell me if there's anything I'm doing wrong. I'll be playing Oliver Wood, he teaches defensive flying techniques at Hogwarts (during the school year anyway). He's passionated by Quidditch and flying in general, of course he knows there are more important things going on than following Puddlemere United this season, but that doesn't stop him from loving it. He loves to go out and have fun with friends (he's only 22 after all, so what can you expect?). And he's a supporter of the Light side.

If anyone whats to talk to me, my email is orionnoire at hotmail.com or the AIM for Oliver is lifeabovground.

Gone!! [16 Jul 2004|10:56pm]

Okay. I am SO terribly sorry about this, but I am going to be gone and computerless from next Wednesday until the Monday after (21-26). This is the most horrible time, I know, since I still haven't done the DE thread and Anthony needs to talk with an Order member (preferably Lupin, to fulfill the challenge). However, it is my religious duty. Iam going to put on the DE thread Saturday night (EST), but Voldie will only be able to post for that three day period. So MAKE SURE that you check back to the thread as much as possible so that we can get as far as possible with Voldie responding. The Dark Side needs this.

feeling a bit ooc?

[16 Jul 2004|10:57am]

I'd like to link everyone to this post.

There are requirements in here, including a list of challenge rps. We are very serious about all of them, but most of all about the notices of away/inaccessibility. While we appreciate them being placed on the boards, it'll be easier for us if we can put them all in the list when we do the activity notices.

And there is one change in the challenge rp listings: cw_bw will be pared with fine_perfection.

Hopefully I am now done spamming today. *g* My updates shall occur, though.
feeling a bit ooc?

[16 Jul 2004|07:50pm]

Vacation time = as good as no computer time

This means I won't be around much for the coming 2 weeks.
Peter is hiding and grieving over Ros
Dennis is still getting tortured by Umbridge
Colin is still searching.

and that's probably all they'll be doing for the next 14 days.
Till then!

[16 Jul 2004|10:12am]

All right folks, I'm going to close the House Party tomorrow morning at 9 am PST. Getcher comments in!

Also, I'm going to keep the board up, but I haven't heard if anyone's interested in keeping it as a board for the house. If you're living in the house - AFAIK, Terry, Luna, Kevin, Rowan, Anthony, Zach, Hannah, and Justin - and let me know if I've forgotten you, my brain is gone and I'm sure I'm missing one person if not two - comment and let me know if you think it would be useful to have.

Also, activity warnings on SUNDAY! Two warnings in a row and we drop, so anyone who didn't post last week NEEDS TO POST. And so does everyone else, of course.
