|With the growth of the RPing world that has evolved out of theatrical_muse there has developed a few different 'universes' where muses/pups play. Many of these are based around the actual fandom of the pups, ie, LOTR (Spring of Arda), Babylon 5, Boston Legal, Star Wars etc etc etc. Also, there came about the straying_thread where pups/muses from all different Miscellaneous Movies/TV Series/real life/mythology etc have ended up... gathering? Also the community realitytrax.
So, many who play have become a 'community' and as such some rather interesting storylines have developed, and characters have evolved, in some cases into something totally different to what they started out as! :)Plus interesting OC (original characters) have grown.
While there are specific places/comms like tm_lucid (BDSM bar), unitingkingdoms (based along lines of an Irish pub), and lustville (adult store with a difference), there has been nowhere that a pup can just meet 'new' faces. (especially a new pup who doesn't know anyone, or perhaps pups from different 'fandoms' who would like to interact but are not sure how/where) So to give them somewhere they could just randomly go for a walk in Central Park and hopefully meet another/a new pup also out for a wander, or a stroll along Broadway to take in a show, and bump into another pup also looking for some theatrical entertainment cityneversleeps has been established. There are a myriad of things that pups who are not in specific storylines could do to meet other pups, especially new ones, who are looking for just some interaction. Or pups who've been around for a while and are looking to meet some new people/pups. A few pups having a bonfire night down on the beach could be an opportunity for some new or infrequently played pups to perhaps wander along and join in.
Hence, this comm - "The City that Never Sleeps". Listed below is a 'Location Guide' that lists some Locations that are 'common ground' or specific places that pups go to, can visit, or whatever. Following that is a basic 'who's who' of pups, their LJ and whatever information they sent! If you want to add yours just email it to musesmail at gmail dot com with whatever you want posted, and your LJ.
If you are looking to meet up with someone, you could use a place listed below just for fun, or you could introduce a new one. If a pup is looking for work they have some places to job hunt, or a gym to workout, or a bar or club for a drink, or whatever. ETA: This list is NOT conclusive, and will be a constant WIP (work-in-progress) so please, if your pup is not there, let us know! The list itself is almost becoming/will hopefully become a 'Who's Who' in a way, and if you would like some 'history' added, or relationship shown, again, we are only an email away, or post in the comm and we will fix it, (then 'file'
Anyway, hoping that this will become the central gaming comm for the world that has grown from the ficlette-writing comm known as 'TM', and all the other meta/fen comms around. (in other words all posts here in this comm are 'game' posts, all OOC threads and Meta can be in either theatrical_fen or straying_thread). And if your pups have storylines happening on their LJs that you would like others to know about you can even post a link here... And if your pup is from 'another world' but would like to be included, then just post!
Have fun everyone!
