GUYS? WHERE ARE WE?
September 22, 2004, Oceanic Flight 815 departed from Sydney, Australia,
carrying 324 passengers on their journey to Los Angeles, California.
Six hours into the trip, complications arose and the pilot turned
around, planning to land in Fiji. Instead, the plane hit turbulence,
forcing it to break apart and crash on a mysterious island. For 108
days, the survivors of the crash endured, fought, and did what they
could to stay alive.
When they were found, the remaining
survivors returned to their lives, ready to move on and push those
memories aside. For some, doing that was easier said than done. For
some, things only got worse.
PAR AVION! is a Season 2 LOST role play that picks up in S2 during flashbacks and goes into being rescued. We are a 17+ site.

I'm the moderator of a two brand new LOST roleplays on livejournal. If you're interested, check out the group, rules, and character sheet, then please pm me, sirenprincess. Tell me which character you'd like to play in lostsotherworld.lostsotherworld
The premise of this role play is that the flash-sideways world is a real world that the characters moved on to after their death in the main world. It is their second life, similar to reincarnation. All characters have woken-up and remembered their previous life, but now they need to live out their very real lives. Characters are likely to interact with one another given that they remember their friendships from the previous world. They went to the church, but only to have a reunion and see everyone again. Soulmate couples are considered canon and will not be broken up.
Most Needed Characters: Clementine Ford, Libby Smith, Jin-Soo Kwon, Sun-Hwa Kwon, Danielle Rousseau, Alex Rousseau, Desmund Hume, Penelope Milton, John Locke, Helen Norwood, Sayid Jarrah, Shannon Rutherford, Boone Carlyle, Rose Nadler, Bernard Nadler, Ana Lucia Cortez, Charlotte Lewis, Pierre Chang, and Ethan Goodspeed. ANY character from LOST can be played in this role play. If the character was shown in the flash-sideways, great, just remember that it's real. If not, adapt the character into a new life in Los Angeles, feel free to show some character growth, and send in an application.our_karaoke_bar
This role play is going to explore what would have happened if some of our Losties had traveled back in time to DHARMA shortly before The Purge. It will be canon compliant through season 4, but will go AU from the episode "LaFleur" in season 5. In the show, the wheel was turned and the time jumps stopped, leaving our characters in 1974. In this AU version, the time jumps stopped leaving our characters in 1989. Characters from The Others, The DHARMA Initiative, and The Left Behinders are open for play. If someone is really interested in playing another character, we could change the composition of The Left Behinders and Oceanic Six. For example, someone wanted to play Hurley, so we changed the storyline to say that he jumped out of the helicopter after Sawyer and became a Left Behinder as well. Characters from the Oceanic Six (Jack, Kate, Sayid) could be added when they come back later along in the role play. If you have a character you're really dying to play, contact a mod and we'll try to figure out how to incorporate that character into the storyline. Also, since this is so close to The Purge, and the most logical thing would be to leave right away given that knowledge, we're going to say that Horace did not offer to send The Left Behinders home on the sub.Most Needed Characters:
Horace Goodspeed, Jin-Soo Kwon, Pierre Chang, Amy Goodspeed, Roger Linus, and Charles Widmore. We also really need characters, can be original, from the DHARMA initiative and the Others.

LOST: Season 2 role play and more.
RASH! BOOM! WAAAALT!
Welcome to Flight 815. You're doomed on an island. Great! ...what do you do?
They never expected it to happen to them. A plane crash. All of a sudden their lives were turned upside down and they found themselves stuck with a group of strangers who, like it or not, could very well be the key to their survival. The survivors were varied and came from all aspects of life. Among them was Jack Shepherd – a doctor who was heading home from Australia after collecting his dead father’s body. Kate Austen: a fugitive running from the law, Charlie Pace: a one-hit wonder rock star, Sayid Jarrah: a former Iraqi torturer and a con man, James Ford, also made up some of the survivors.
Two months in and things have changed. They’ve built shelters; they’ve gotten “comfortable”. Because though you’ll be hard pressed to get many of them to admit it, they’re starting to give up on rescue. Besides, the island isn’t too bad. There’s food, water, shelter, and the climate rivals that of any tropical resort.
Cue “The Others”. They live on the island, and have for longer than anyone knows – or at least cares to admit. They have no intention of letting the survivors have an easy time of it. Having already infiltrated the camps on more than one occasion, they have files and they’re not afraid to use the information they’ve gathered to their advantage. What they’re out to get, the survivors don’t know but they’re definitely going to continue to clash because neither side is willing to give up. Giving up on this island means death.
You FRICKIN RUN! From the smoke monster. You're a...
AU LOST, based around Season 2 during Two For The Road. Plenty of characters available, inquire within.

2 New LOST RPGs Need All Characters!
NOW CASTING FOR 2 BRAND NEW ALTERNATE UNIVERSE LOST RPGS!
All roles needed!
Both games take place after the detonation of Jughead, which split
the show into alternate realities.
However, these games will not be following the alternate realities
put into place by the show. Instead...
GAME 1 - "WE ONCE WERE LOST" - sends the characters back in time to
the day of the crash where they will relive their fate all over
again... only this time, they retained the memory of all that came
before. They remember everything that happened on the island the
first time, and will use those memories to correct the mistakes they
made this time around and learn to live a full, productive life on
GAME 2 - "DHARMA VS. HOSTILES" - sends the characters back in time to
1991, a year before the Purge that wiped out the Dharma Initiative.
In this reality, no one remembers anything that happened on the show.
Every character on Lost is a member of either the Dharma Initiative
or the Hostiles camp. Suspend your disbelief and your canon history -
Anything can happen in this completely off-the-wall alternate

Lost creator loves Veronica Mars
Lost creator Damon Lindelof
said he had to cancel his cable "and get DirecTV TiVo, so that [he could] TiVo both Veronica Mars and Lost." He says, "I f--king love that show. It is awesome. It's probably my favorite show right now, and I didn't discover it until fairly late in the season...but now I'm hooked." And starting April 11th, VM is no longer on during Lost, so you can see what he means.
Want a little background info before you jump in? Read the cheat sheet for episode 2x17
and watch the rerun this weekend on UPN: city by city listings

2nd Episode Question
Did anyone else notice what Michael gives 2-year-old Walt when he says goodbye in the park? If it was what I think it was, then YET AGAIN those dratted bloody fabulous show creator/writer people are dropping hints about how EVERYONE in the cast matters and some of the things that are happening could have been related to the passengers' pasts.

My B.A. thesis in literature was on fantasy and deconstruction in the short stories of Peter Carey. I'm not going to bore you with the details. However, while I was writing it I read several books on the theory of fantasy and I think I can safely say that no two writers can agree on anything.1
Mostly because they can't decide among themselves what exactly to classify as fantasy and what not. I was reading this review
of the last episode of Lost
and the writer brings up an interesting point: Perhaps most extraordinarily, the series manages to remain just barely on the mainstream side of the fantasy divide. Though it’s rife with numerological portent, awash with mysterious concepts, and swathed in genre trappings, nothing beyond the realm of reality has yet occurred. [...] One wonders if that’s the secret to the show’s success—SF enough to intrigue the fans, but mainstream enough to appeal to a mass audience.
Ok, certainly not a new point but one that people seem to be a bit muddled over. How exactly to classify this show? Is it really sci-fi or fantasy. Are those two classifications the same? Buffy
was without a doubt fantasy but it was never sci-fi. All of which started me thinking about good old Tzvetan Todorov. He wrote a book in the seventies called The fantastic; a structural approach to a literary genre
where he quite neatly classifies the genres; there is the uncanny and there is the marvelous. Sooner or later all fantasy fiction falls can be classified as one or the other. There is either an explanation for what is going on (be it science fiction or something more mundane) or it's something mystical in origin. With one exception. Todorov can't for the life of him put Kafka's Metamorphosis
into either group and concludes that it is the sole work of fantasy ever produced.2
So after viewing that last episode I can't help thinking that the writers are perhaps messing around with Todorov system. We have the two opposites; Jack and Locke - the representatives of the uncanny and the marvelous respectively. And between them is the island vehemently (so far) defying all classification to either extreme. It remains to be seen if it'll continue in this state and take it's place alongside the Metamorphosis as a true work of fantasy (I can just imagine someone like Todorov hating that idea) or slip into the comfortableness of either the uncanny or the marvelous.
Of course, I'm no structuralist ;)
Crossposted in my own journal.
__________________1 But please, for the love of Saussure, keep in mind this was 8 years ago. I may be a bit hazy on the details.
2 Rosemary Jackson wrote another, far better book IMO, on the subject of fantasy that acknowledges Todorovs system but doesn't rely on it.

So how about that 2 hour season finale? Any thoughts on it? Also, does anyone know when they're going to start the new season?
|Wednesday, May 11th, 2005|
day!!! I'm super excited! And even though I'm at home and won't be playing drinking games, I'll still be watching...and probably wishing I could drink as it is a Kate-centric episode and I hate her. And now, without further ado...( The rulesCollapse )( A random ruleCollapse )
