Voldemort Etiquette 101

In bad_rpers_suck, tviokh explains what not to do at a Death Eater meeting.

If your character walks into that same meeting dressed as a Muggle "goth", and is wearing headphones and listening to shit music on an mp3 player, chances are it will peeve the Dark Lord but if He is otherwise occupied or in a good mood, perhaps you'll just get torture if you can explain it as 'undercover' work or something equally implausable. If you wish to try that route, please IM the Dark Lord privately to discuss the possibility OOC.

Over on fanficrants, we were discussing the inability of numerous authors to spell character names properly ("Luscious," "Voldemart," that sort of thing). That discussion spawned these great quotes:

pathology_doc: Luscious? Maybe in the context of the fic, in some hot sex scene or in some other context where his partner (whoever they are) is trying to flatter him sexually, but there's no other excuse.

And Voldemart? The exclusive purveyor of all things Dark; bargains for Death Eaters and their families this week only!

el_regrs: Well, I'd buy me some Luscious at Voldemart.

severa, here, contemplating manilla folders:

Heh. "manilla" is a funny word. Sounds more like a Japanese Monster. Godzilla vs. Manzilla!!! Or manly vanilla. Or maybe a man who is vanilla. "Gerald shied away when his girlfriend suggested hand-cuffs. He was just too manilla."

ooh, but now I move on to the RED folders. So I can pretend I'm labeling folders that would be used to carry top secret information, and the codes to launch nuclear missles. MWAHAHAHA. Though...I highly doubt things like that would be labeled alphabetically with either words "paid" or "outstanding". Then again...they could designate which folders full of secrets have been bought and paid for by another country, and "outstanding" would be for the top secret stuff that was really cool.

feline_dacat posted excerpts from a UK Ministry of Defense report on equipment going 'missing':

We don't have a clue what we've got, except in the case of aircraft carriers where we are 100% certain we have a stock record for all of them and there has been no incidence of any attempted sales on EBay.

Min (scapegoat_5) talks about his character in an Exalted game I run (for reference, his character gave the boatswain magically-cursed books to carry):

Poor boatswain got turned into a poodle. Not that he didn't want it of course. Like seriously, he was pissing an awful lot. If he hadn't been turned into a poodle, he would have been expected to help fight against big fucking demon, which no one wants to do, especially with a full bladder, and have you ever tried running with a full bladder? I think I saved him from being crushed. I was a key player in his survival.

This was taken with permission from alluha's journal where it is attributed to the original author XDD. This is the whole post and it's not f-locked.

DragonflyBlade21: A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired.

To jeans or not to jeans? That is the question...

The ever-metaquotable irradiatedsoup has been staying up waaaay too late for her own good. She elaborates in this post. But here's a snippet of what a tired brain can do - Claire-style:

I might get some new jeans tomorrow. I might not. What is important about jeans is what you do with them once you get them. Putting them on your head for instance may seem like a funny and jovial pastime, but you will earn the long suffering nickname of "jeanshead". And, I'm just saying, well if you're willing to live with that, that's just fine.

For context, see above, but really...who needs context?
