This took about four hours to create as an entry, thanks to all the hunting I had to do. SO worth it, even if it's nearly 2:30am now.

Decided to go back and find good moments of my past Mafia games - the one where Wash was an assassin with River and was totally leading on Simon and Zoe, the (only?) one where I was Giles, the one where Wash and Simon get drunk, the one where events were so epic that it led to a full-on crack!ship and a banner to commemorate the Wash/Simon/Illyria ship (and my headdesking a lot) or the reaaaaally early game where [livejournal.com profile] lias9 was assassin!Zoe and was trying to double-cross me and then things went wild.

If any of the players in my f-list have any good stories/memories, please comment!

EDIT: I've only gone through that one jjmafia game, but I believe I've covered all the ones I was in for whedonland. I'll have to go find the other mafia comms and games, if I'm even able to, like the Villains one or speed games, but if anyone who tracked entire mafia posts still have links in their notification area, that'd be awesome.

What I've found so far:

My first mafia game as Giles (I do believe it was my second or third Whedonland game)
*Unfortunately, I was killed on day one or two or something, but being a ghost was nice. Also had [livejournal.com profile] harbek as a great Topher, which I really miss.
Giles/Adelle and Adelle/Simon. Heee.
A great little moment for Giles.
Simon and River. <33333
Somewhere along the line... someone decided that Justin Beiber must clearly have been an assassin. So there were votes and speculation about him. XD


One of many wlcaritas games, but memorable to me for this:
*Note: Wash is an assassin, River's an assassin, Simon's a healer, Illyria's a mason, and I remember doing my best to skip Wash around Simon during the day and be bffs while asking to keep him alive in assassin chat (because I love [livejournal.com profile] lias9 so dang much as Simon) - and according to some, Wash getting "jealous" of what became the Simon/Illyria ship.
Day 8: Wash and Simon go to the bar - following the death of Zoe.. and Drusilla shows up
This is just a cute drunk!Wash moment..
Day 9: Wash sees Dru
Day 10: Simon's the seer. (Again.) Wash and Simon have an adorbs moment.
Night 14: Wash dies and there's Simon/Wash insanity and tempertantrums. In-character. <3
Night 15a: Simon and Wash snarkage.
Night 15b: more snark!
Day 16a: ghost!Wash vs ghost!Illyria
Day 16b: more snarkage and OOC
Day 17: ghost!Wash and Simon and ghost!Illyria

My awesome shiny banner by [livejournal.com profile] sucksucksmile/Anya after it was all done with. (All the assassins got one and we even gave one to Simon for being an honorary assassin, I think.)



The clubjj Mafia game of epic
* Basically, the game was dragging on so long that I felt we were all just waiting for it to be over, but didn't want to be bad sports and arbitrarily quit or declare game over. So Wash gets stressed and eventually just snaps and becomes evil. It was a lot of fun and helped lighten the mood a lot, plus it gave us something to focus on after voting.
Part 1: Wash snaps.
Part 2: The kidnapping goes weird
Part 3: surprise!Jayne and lightsabers. Also probably the only time I can use the phrase "I'm a leaf on the wind" as a threat.
Part 4: Second Notice
Part 5: Goodbye, Penny.


ETA: I FOUND IT I FOUND IIIIIT OMG OMG OMG.
THE ONE WHERE [livejournal.com profile] lias9 IS ZOE AND I'M WASH OMG.
The dates of this thing were June 9-13th, 2010. I had to go SO far back in the archives for this one. ..what the heck HOW was that only almost a year ago?? It feels like at least two years omg. WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE OUR ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY DATE. I'm almost positive that this was my very first Whedonland mafia game, so it's special. Introduced me to a lot of mafia friends, and looking back I now see a lot of familiar names in the rosters. Ah, good times. <3
Oooh, and [livejournal.com profile] harbek as Claire?! Totally forgot about that, but re-reading it it's just as epic as I remember. I believe [livejournal.com profile] kasiopeia was our very fun Jayne, too. :D

Here's a bit of Zoe/Wash. Still trying to find what made it so good.
Hee. Short but adorbs. <33
Zoe/Wash FTW
Wash getting defensive.
And then I think this is where Zoe's player starts thinking Wash is setting her up.
Oooh. Here's some great Topher/Claire interaction. [livejournal.com profile] harbek and [livejournal.com profile] afrocurl make it look easy. <333
The last day thread. Wash is scattered in there quite a lot with Zoe and River and all.

This is way too late in coming, and I may not be great at making fanfic or art or whatever but I really wanted to remember her in my own little way.

Sarah Jane Smith was my first proper Classic Who companion. I met her as I watched her reacting (as I did) to the newly regenerated Fourth Doctor in a rerun of Robot on PBS. Of course, at the time I had no initial idea she'd been with the Third Doctor as well. Her reactions to this new Doctor were much the same as my own to Ten changing (I'd seen some of Nine at this point); he was this new, strange being, but still very much the same person (I could see where the manic energy came from, while Sarah Jane of course knew of Three's personality.)

I loved her character in School Reunion even though I didn't know a lot about her. Thanks to PBS, I saw her in at least the first four or five serials with Four, and she was pretty awesome. I had started my 'studies', if you will, of Classic Who once I got into the show properly, and read up on everyone and everything I could find. I was able to understand Ten's emotions so much better the second time around.

Sarah Jane Smith is so much more of a character than Rose or Martha or even Donna will ever be. Even knowing initially very little about her other than being a "former companion", she had so much of a richer character and made Rose seem flat and boring in comparison. It says something that she can more than just hold her own in a spin-off centered around her, while I probably wouldn't even bother with a show formed around nearly any other companion. Elisabeth Sladen wasn't just acting out Sarah Jane; she was Sarah Jane.

I'm still very upset although now that it's been a few days I'm able to step back and remember all the wonderful moments Lis Sladen gave us as Sarah Jane, rather than what we won't have anymore.

Rest in peace, Elisabeth Sladen. I hope Sarah Jane and the Brigadier and Harry are having some wonderful adventures together again.

Like I said before, I fail at artwork or fanfic, but these are some of the things I've come across that were absolutely gorgeous and stood out to me the most, and I want to share. There's already so many posts about this that a lot of these things are easy to get lost in the shuffle.

Fanfic:
Saying Goodbye
A Tear, Sarah Jane

Pictures:
Beautiful picture. May make it my background for a while, even.
Oh, K-9. ;__;

 Man, my life is busy as heck lately.

So here's a quick update before I get my 5-6 hours of sleep. (EDIT: Quick? Lawl, took me the better part of half an hour to write all this. So I'm categorizing, cutting, and chronological-izing to save you all the trouble of trying to decipher my jumbled thoughts.


The Past: )
The Present: )
The Future: )

([livejournal.com profile] gildedmuse, you demanded a "full report (of course) of the whole big damn thing", and a full report you shall have. Some mighty impressive TL;DR is here, and I expect you to read it all. XD
Don't say I didn't warn you.)

I'd love to know if anyone else went, and what they thought. (Or even if you didn't, comments are loved) You probably saw me running around snapping pics or whirling on the dance floor, if you attended.

The following is lots of my recollections rather than just a simple report on the event, so apologies if the only thing you wanted to know was textbook details. :P

LONG SHINY REPORT, HERE! )

PS: I was a terrible Bounty Hunter. I recognized all but two people but was so timid to actually go arrest people that I only caught one Outlaw. :P
