Hello friends! I made Zazzle (and myself) a bunch of special Demonverse tea blends for Christmas from Design a Tea, and thought I'd share them with you for anyone who might want to order any. Unfortunately, unlike Adagio you can't order them directly, but you CAN fill out the elements to get the same teas.

I'll also give my label names and you can ask to use my labels by name. The label name I used is in bold, and if you want it to appear with the images I picked, you might need my real name - if you don't have it already, it's Zrerqvgu Xngm - use ROT-13 to decrypt. So, you know "Please use [real name]'s 'Dr. Filangieri: Deep Sleep' label!, and hope that works.)


Bastien: Mistakes are Made - Rum-Cinnamon Oolong
(Base: Oolong, Flavor 1: Rum, Flavor 2: Cinnamon, Herb: Cloves - whole)

Kit: Old Linen - Cinnamon-Plum Rooibos.
(Base: Rooibos, Flavor 1: Cinnamon, Flavor 2: Plum, Herb: no herb.)

Tristan: Humanist Interest - Cherry-Lemon Green
(Base: Green, Flavor 1: Cherry, Flavor 2: Lemon, Herb: Lemongrass)

Kieran: Divine Calling, Infernal Desires - Pumpkin-Vanilla Black
(Base: Black, Flavor 1: Pumpkin, Flavor 2: Vanilla, Herb: Cinnamon)

Elli: Witch Way - Strawberry-Caramel Black
(Base: Black, Flavor 1: Strawberry, Flavor 2: Caramel, Herb: Lavender)

Luka: Sweet Smoke - Blackberry-Caramel Oolong
(Base: Oolong, Flavor 1: Blackberry, Flavor 2: Caramel, Herb: no herb.)

Mr. Sidney: Butler, Please - Amaretto-Zabaglione Black
(Base: Black, Flavor 1: Amaretto, Flavor 2: Zabaglione, Herb: Rose petals)

Lucia: Don't Disobey - Mango-Ginger Green
(Base: Green, Flavor 1: Mango, Flavor 2: Ginger, Herb: No herb)

David: Deep Shadows - Mocha-Hazelnut Oolong
(Base: Oolong, Flavor 1: Mocha, Flavor 2: Hazelnut, Herb: Yerba mate)

Dr. Filangieri: Deep Sleep - Vanilla-Honey Rooibos
(Base: Roiboos, Flavor 1: Vanilla, Flavor 2: Honey, Herb: Chamomile)

Maon: An Coineachan - Apricot-Black Currant Rooibos
(Base: Rooibos, Flavor 1: Apricot, Flavor 2: Black Currant, Herb: Lavender)

Madison: Blind Eye - Orange-Cranberry Green
(Base: Green, Flavor 1: Cranberry, Flavor 2: Orange, Herb: Lemon Balm)

Hope people enjoy if they get -- based on samples I got before making up actual full blends, my personal favorite (Haru) is probably Luka's, which tastes, indeed, sweet and smoky, though Mr. Sidney's is certainly a (bizarrely fancy) treat!

(And if anyone has any questions on the blends or flavors or whatever let me know)
Thank you all again for playing ♥ WE HAD A LOT OF FUN DOING SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT and hope you did too 'u'

Our next game will PROBABLY be the weekend after Christmas though we understand that availability may vary due to holidays. If you know you 100% can't make it, please let us know, since if there's a lot of people we'll reschedule, but so much delicious time off.

Since the number of characters staying in Demonverse continues to climb, we may do some in-between plotting so just stay tuned for that, energy-dependent. And of course if you ever have a character that wants to move on in, we are cool with that. I'm sure Tristan will be happy to continue funding condos.

Remember you can hang out in #deadgaysatanists as much as you want, and it's a good idea to pin this community and follow us at [plurk.com profile] demonverse.

As always—questions about characters or the plot? Comments? Memes? Requests? Anything goes! (We know we've introduced a lot of new stuff and revealed some older things, so please feel free to ask as much as you want and we may not have to be supercryptic possibly maybe).
Thank you all for playing! We're sorry for running so late, but will pick up endgame indefinitely ♥ We had a genuinely wonderful time running it and lots of laughter and tears on our side. You guys are the best.

Feel free to hang out in our #deadgaysatanists chan for eternity, and if anyone wants to chat game stuff, ask questions in this post, etc., feel free!

ETA: Oh yeah this post was up before the game started for the NY crew and we forgot to unlock it o/

ETA ETA: And the pregame emails between Sera and a mysterious person (aka Valencia)
Hey guys! Those of you following the plurk (which you should do if you're not already, reminder!) probably saw a tentative game planning for this weekend and were wondering why there has been no followup.

Alas, Zazzle and I both have had a lot of work things come up this week, and will probably have work we have to take care of this weekend (for one thing, I might have to go in) so we are postponing the planned game until February 28-March 2 ETA: March 14-March16 (this time for as close to sure as is reasonably humanly possible).

Save the date! We will make the game twice as awesome to make up for you having to shuffle schedules! ♥
1) Keep threading in epilogue as long as you want; we'll be picking up throughout the week. (We'll also pick up stuff in endgame since we rushed through that lmao)

2) Remember to friend/follow @demonverse on Plurk as the all our announcements will go up there (thumbtacking [personal profile] arsgoetia on DW is also a good idea in case for some reason we miss a Plurk signalboost). Our webpage is here though it's already out of date weep weep. Also feel free to hang out forever with Zazzle and Haru in #deadgaysatanists on IRC.

3) AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PLAYING AND HAPPY FOURTH ANNIVERSARY TO OLD PLAYERS, NEW PLAYERS, AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN ♥ We're so happy to have come this far with everyone and we're looking forward to what we hope will be a fantastic game 15 (Is the 5th and 6th of October good for people? Tentatively sounding that out -- it should be a short game)!


Now, the purpose of the post! ANYTHING GOES. We invite questions and discussions of absolutely anything (although we reserve the right to smile mysteriously over anything that might give away the plot of future games, you can still ask anything). And ANYTHING ELSE. Self-indulgences, memes, music you were listening to, anythiiiing. If you want to know the usual sort of thing, you can find our ooc tag here but use this post for anything you feel like -- It's called Anything Goes for a reason.

Also Zazzle and Haru stay in #deadgaysatanists on IRC all the time, so feel free to join us and just hang out forever for demonverse chatter.

3) AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ♥ We love playing with you guys—you always make it a genuine pleasure to run events ///. Game date announcement for Game 14 should be going up right after this post!

3) Please make sure you have this journal on stalkerpin, and if you have a plurk, to follow demonverse on plurk. As well, our website is getting a total overhaul and the new one can be found here; the old one is here and still contains all previous game logs and summaries.

Hi Demonversers!

As you all know real life has turned into a ferocious swarm of piranhas for us recently. As such we want to note that even though we've tried to do games each September as a celebration thing, we prooobably won't get to one this year. We're hoping to do a combination anniversary-halloween game in October but we'll let you know based on how life is looking what with unexpectedly having to move and all o7.

--oh, yes, did I say anniversary?

HAPPY 3 YEARS, DEMONVERSE!!

Thank you all for playing with us for three years straight -- for being there to play, to drive the story, to change the characters, to make Demonverse the thing it is today. We're so happy to be even able to SAY "Three Years", you have no idea. ♥

Even though we can't do a celebratory anniversary game this year, we do want to have some fun so let's have an in-between-games anything-goes meme and an Ask Me Anything! For the former, feel free to dump any pics, fics, filks, fun memes (for example, you might want to know that if Tristan were animated, it would be By Production I.G., a 21 episode yuri anime about Tristan Valentine's pantsu.), or anything else demonversy you want to toss around! Songs you've heard, whatever. For the latter, ask us anything you want -- about our methods, the plot so far, habits we have, anything at all you want to ask about. (If it is something which is a super plot spoiler we'll tell you as much, but it never hurts to ask)!

Anyway, we love all you guys, and again, thank you for spending all this time with us helping ghosts and getting hit on by demons (or occasionally vice versa).
1) As always, THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR PLAYING ♥ We had a lot of fun playing with all of you, and hope you enjoyed it. It was a bit of an in-between game, so I hope you're looking forward to what's to come. ♥

2) Now, the purpose of the post! ANYTHING GOES. We invite questions and discussions of absolutely anything (although we reserve the right to smile mysteriously over anything that might give away the plot of future games, you can still ask anything). And ANYTHING ELSE. Self-indulgences, memes, drabbles, art, facebook statuses, anythiiiing. If you want to know the usual sort of thing, our last ones were here, here, here, and here!

3)Keep threading in epilogue as long as you want; we'll be picking up throughout the week. Also Zazzle and Haru stay in #deadgaysatanists all the time, so feel free to join us and just hang out for occasional "oh man this song reminds me of Tristan's face" or whatever. (It's probably not his face it reminds you of.)

4) Please make sure you have this journal on stalkerpin, or, if you don't want to, give us your plurk name to put you on the demonverse clique, as we aren't really doing announcements of new games, fun things, etc, outside these two places. Thanks!
Our utmost apologies for the long delay, and now, the short notice! The next Demonverse session will be on June 30th & July 1st (Saturday/Sunday) for Haru's birthday weekend~ with some carryover and wrapup on the Monday. Just a short game, but we will hopefully not wait . . . six months . . . to run the next one . . .

The timeframe we're looking at is . . . most of the afternoon and evening, with the key stuff probably starting around noon PST on both days, and the climax/wrapup stuff will probably be on Sunday around 7 or 8 PST, but you can feel free to come and go if you need to eat or do things with your lives or whatever, just as long as we know ahead of time what your timeline looks like so everyone can plan accordingly.

The game will PROBABLY be running on IRC this round. If there are significant objections to this we can run a journal game, but because of the short timeframe, this will probably be easier! Because of this, we would like it if players are around more-or-less consistently or predictably, so please keep that in mind!

If you're new to the game, please check out the FAQ here and feel free to ask us any questions! We'll accept any characters currently played in CFUD/Aather/Thusia/Sabra/EC/etc, and dropped characters that have previously played in Demonverse. If you have any questions about whether or not a character is suitable, just ask, but there's more info in the FAQ about character suitability, so check that first!

Comment below with your character name and email~ ♥ As always, we look forward to having you~

Congratulations everybody, I decided against putting this all in code!
I felt like it.

TFLN )

More probably coming when I feel like wading through more texts from last night :3(\ Or make some too! Or similar horrifying things. IDK.

HARU OUT.
1) As always, THANKS FOR PLAYING ♥ It was a bit derpy and silly and really just an excuse to hang out but we had a lot of fun and hope you did too. You guys are always amazing ♥

Thank you again CROW for doing Lucia's new blonde icons! You are always awesommme.

2) Now, the purpose of the post! ANYTHING GOES. We invite questions and discussions of absolutely anything (although we reserve the right to :) over anything relevant to future games). And ANYTHING ELSE. Self-indulgences, memes, drabbles, art, facebook statuses, anythiiiing. If you want to know the usual sort of thing, our last ones were here, here, and here!

3)You can always keep threading in endgame and epilogue as long as you want; I have the posts tagged and when notifs stop rolling in I will start to shift us over to dreamwidth. As we mentioned before we will let you guys know when we do so you can all stalkerpin that journal.

THAT SAID, the current minimalist layout cuts all posts off visibly at 500 comments... you can keep threading but you can't scroll down past that. It is also the only layout that mimics the old LJ one. Our options are to switch to a layout that doesn't or ....do that temporarily and make some kind of directory in each post to all the comments, if you want to backread anything. Or just wait until we're over at DW to backread... Let us know your preferences on how to handle this stupid, stupid conundrum.

Also Zazzle and Haru stay in #deadgaysatanists all the time, so feel free to join us and just hang out for occasional "oh man this song reminds me of tristan's face" or whatever.

4) Please make sure you have this journal on stalkerpin, or, if you don't want to, give us your plurk name to put you on the demonverse clique, as we aren't really doing announcements of new games, fun things, etc, outside those two places. Thanks!
THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR PLAYING ♥ We had a super lot of fun and everybody was fabulous and yes thank you thank you as usual. ♥ ♥ ♥ LOOK HOW ON TIME WE ARE DONE THIS IS FABULOUS.

And a super special thank you to CROW who unfortunately could not play but did Madison's fabulous iconset and is amazing.

That said: as usual, any questions or discussions or anything can go here, though as always we reserve the right to stay :x on things that may be relevant in future games! Also, self-indulgence/anything goes post/meme/SURVIVAL STRATEGY for people to request fics or drabbles or dump art or memes or basically anything. Previous ones for the last two games were here and here for reference!

And as always, you can totally keep threading in endgame and epilogue forever. You can also stay in #deadgaysatanists forever, we just hang out there. It's a swell place to be.
So you are new to demonverse, or maybe old hat to demonverse and just want to read this for the fun of it! I made a post for you to help you with things that you might have questions about generally!

What is Demonverse? )
Oh whup I should probably post these links so the games appear in the tags.

Kinkmeme AKA fic request meme AKA art dump meme AKA ask-us-questions-about-anything AKA stupid memes go here AKA whatever you want.

Previous one was here and the one before it was here, for reference.
Because Kazuki used the cute face on me and demanded I post this:

Just a few housekeeping measures! Feel free to comment here with any gameplay/schedule/OOC-related queries, suggestions, whatever, even if I don't specifically mention it:

[Poll #1664723]

Feel free to ramble about your schedule restrictions in the comments. Also, people who did not play in this current game but are interested in playing in the next one are free to give input.

Another query: player cap! Does anybody have a suggestion on how we might deal with the fact that we have more interested sign-ups than we are feasibly able to cope with? Like, running this game at 17 people pushed us nearly to our wits ends trying to make sure everybody had something going on in hypothetically equal measures. We will keep trying to run at this level, but we are getting 20+ potential signups each time, so we may have to make a modification to the game system somehow. We'll be tossing ideas between ourselves, but we'd also like to hear from you.

Lastly, anonymous comments are screened, so if you want to leave feedback also here is the place to do it! We would actually prefer feedback not be anonymous so we can address things directly with you, but we also understand that not everybody is comfortable with that, so the option is here. ♥

ETA: For the record, there is going to be a VERY HIGH CHANCE that next game's structure is going to be seriously modified! Even though these last two games have actually worked very well altogether, the structure is rigid and bad for weird timezones and people having to work, etc, etc. Fill me in on when you're available and don't worry too much about not being available enough—we're going to figure something out, we just need the info!
WE ONLY WENT ALMOST FOUR HOURS OVER OUR TIME LIMIT YOU GUYS. IT'S OKAY WE WERE ON TIME ALL THE OTHER NIGHTS THAT'S REALLY LIKE ONLY ONE HOUR PER NIGHT.

But seriously thank you so much for playing ;o; ♥ As you may have noticed, this was something of an "in between" game—the previous game had been the end of a particular arc (with Sidney) and this one is setting up something new! Which means that there was not as much direction as usual so thank you so, so, so much for going with it and making it amazing and beautiful and deep and funny and touching DESPITE these difficulties as you guys always do! Seriously, we do so very little, it is really you guys that shape the story and the outcomes and JUST BECAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO ASK, I feel like this was a pretty good end, all things considered.

So, yes: this is not really the end of anything, because it is the beginning of something else. We really hope you will stick around and play that with us, too.

We will be finishing up threads in the endgame over the next day or more, and poking at it, and bringing things to a real close (and yes, Zazzle will really pick up endgame threads this time!). There will be a kink meme, and followup short stories from us regarding NPCs and loose threads. There will be a feedback post, and a questions post, etc, etc. We will either get them up in the next hour, or do that tomorrow. IT'S ALREADY 4AM WHO GIVES A DAMN ANYMORE?

Again, thank you so, so, so much for playing! We always give 110% to try and just make this as fun for you as possible! And with 17 people to juggle it is not always easy to make sure every one of you is having the utmost fulfilling experience but WE TRIED and I think everything was a little beautiful anyway. I certainly had a good time, and I hope even if it wasn't perfect for you, you did enjoy yourselves, and we will keep moving forward, not backward! Upward, not forward! And always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom~~~ ♥

Except the next game is going to be in Hell but whatever.
