The Costume Debate


Dean: but none of the pure-bloods will.

Dean: But can you really picture the Malfoys dancing to “Grease Lightning”?

Seamus: We’ll just go in seperate costumes.

(OOC: A huge thank you to the wonderful @askdeanthomass for being the best Dean a gal could ask for.)

[H] Event: The Great Debate!

People of Azeroth, it is time for your voices and opinions to be heard! Starting on the 27th of October at 6 PM server, The Arcane Collegiate will host a monthly debate on various topics of importance to the Horde, and to the world at large, and all characters are invited to have their thoughts heard!

Is it safe?

To ensure the safety of our visitors, the collegiate mages have lent their skills towards making an anti-magic sound barrier that will prevent outside listeners from using what your characters have to say against them in any capacity. All opinions are welcome here, no matter how dangerous (or traitorous).

We ask that characters who would come to this event to use it as an excuse to stalk and/or force characters into unwanted conflict refrain from attending. No character is allowed to metagame any information heard at this event without the attendee’s permission and will not be entertained if they try.

How do we debate?

There are some ground rules for the debate that all characters should be aware of before they enter our event. Failure to read and understand the rules does not exempt you from them.

  1. No weapons (or magic) allowed. The debate is to be kept as civil as possible.
  2. We are here to argue our point, not to insult one another. If a character cannot get their point across without insulting the other debaters by way of slurs or name-calling, they will be asked to stand down and/or leave the premises.
  3. No violence allowed. We are here to use our words, not our fists. Characters trying to start fights will be disincluded from the event. Since we cannot formally remove you, you will be asked to leave and put on /ignore if you do not comply.
  4. He who asserts must prove. All statements must have real facts to back them up.
  5. All questions asked of the debaters must be fair and clear. No statements, comments, or rhetorical questions. Trolling is 100% unacceptable.
  6. This is an in-character event! If OOC must be used, keep it brief (and kind).

Unlike a real debate team, there is no winner or loser here- only the conversation and various sides of the discussion. Come to brush up on your lore regarding the topic, or to argue your side of the question- lurkers and devil’s advocates are welcome!

This month’s debate topic:

“Is Sylvanas fit to be Warchief of the Horde?”

Date and Location:

October 27th, 6pm PST

Caer Darrow, just off the docks.

Contacts:

Lanthelon

Annathemas

Have some ideas for next month’s topic? Send a message! Thanks for reading, hope to see folks come out for some good ol’ fun and debate!

Which blogger is the hottest? Haha, good luck with choosing.

Siobhan and Kristen are a couple in real life

2.9k words of very manly cockles nonsense
for @casthegrumpy‘s birthday

The first time Misha reads the script, he laughs so hysterically that he gets lightheaded and has to take a nap in his trailer.

Jensen will soon be standing in front of a teenage girl, listening intently as she explains the concept of Destiel subtext to him.

Nothing could delight Misha more.

Granted, Jensen is one of his best friends. And he maybe probably definitely wouldn’t be opposed if Jensen one day decided to burn his straight pride flag and kissed his face just a little.

But that’s beside the point.

The point is that Jensen–poor, overcompensating, precious little macho Jensen–has to confront his worst fear on national television: Dean and Cas doing it.

The second time Misha reads the script–and honestly he reads it a second time simply because it fills him with such petty joy (it’s not like he’s in the fucking episode)–he gets stuck on one teensy little part.

Siobhan and Kristen are a couple in real life.

Couple.

Real life.

Before he has the inclination to filter himself, he shoots Robbie a text: Siobhan and Kristen are a couple in real life? Is there something between me and Jensen that I don’t know about?

Robbie texts back almost immediately.

What?

Siobhan and Kristen. Are you implying that Jensen and I are “a couple in real life”?

So I made a joke about flatamenta types earlier and of course I wanted to check if it was flatamenta or flat Amenta on my pocket everything (either, they’re not exactly consistent) and next thing I know I’m 30 tabs deep into obscure conspiracy theories. Oysters-can-predict-the-future over there reminded me that this sort of thing is absolutely hilarious, so have some of my favorite under the cut.

It was a debatable thought for him to go somewhere so… unclean and cruel. A place they sold beings of intelligence but misfortune, mostly beings of misfortunes. It was the only way they’d be in place like this, with numbers being raised and cash for them in trade. But lean yet short boy was there, looking over the crowd to the stages.

Mike, for the most part, wanted to free them. But unfortunately those kind of attempts would lead nowhere now, other than into one of those cages left to wait for another auction day.
He kept to his walking, starting to feel a pull to one of the stands. He was a little short to make out what was up there, but he couldn’t help but be drawn. Forcing him to walk in the direction of it.

He heard a call of price from the stage, without a thought he shot his hand up. Only a few tried to out bid him, but it was by clear spite and drawn instinct that he won whoever it was on stage.

Mike sighed in relief, walking to get behind the stage for the exchange. The auctioneer giving him forewarning of needing to break his new servant, not that he cared to listen. Nor did he look at his new ‘servant’. He just wanted to leave, with whom he’d bought and disappear before they found out the cash he’d handed over was nothing but leaves and stones and an illusion.

Leaving quickly once they left him be, keeping to a pace the other could go. Once outside he smashed a bottle, he’d taken from his pocket. A quick transportation spell, though anyone not used to such speeds would be sick. Mike wouldn’t blame the other if he did throw up, it was fast for anything that wasn’t used to it or wasn’t a dragon.

#willblockallthehaters

The thing that always strikes me as weird about the old tabletop-RPGs-versus-freeform-RP debate is the implicit and largely unquestioned positioning of mechanically mediated play as mutually exclusive of role immersion.

For my part, I find that engagement with game mechanics - and, in particular, the use of randomisers - actually helps with immersion.

It’s relatively difficult for me to get into my character’s headspace when I’m doing pure freeform RP, because whenever I describe something whose outcome logically ought to be uncertain, in the back of my mind I have to think about what that outcome “should” be. That tends to pull me right out of it.

Conversely, if I’m rolling dice to determine what happens, then I have no better idea of what the outcome will be than my character does. I find that the only way I can effectively immerse myself in my role in a scenario that entails risk or uncertainly is for there to actually be risk or uncertainty, on some level.

RP Event: Ishgard Debates! Balmung Server on Sept. 5th @ 2-5pm EST

—RESCHEDULED—

Event:

St. Endalim’s Scholasticate Student Debate Forum

Topic:

Ishgard Foreign Policy—Rejoin the Eorzean Alliance or reinstitute Isolationism?

Panel:

Laurentoix Beaujolais (Moderator) @ishgard-confessions

Riven Pendragon (Judge) @scrollsfromarebornrealm

Iris Blanchimont (Judge) @lominsianlily

Lindelle Despereaux  (Judge) @ishgard-to-nym

Ilieha Beautemps (Pro-Alliance) @dravanian

Ysia Lemieux (Pro-Isolation) @la-tourterelle-grise

Where:

Monument Tower, Coerthas Central Highlands

Other Details:

Begins exactly at 1pm EST, but is expected to take two full hours. If continuing past 4pm, no obligation to stay. If finishing early due to a lack of questions or otherwise, we have some drinks and socialize until we get bored.

Speakers will be given ten minutes to present their arguments in an Opening Statement to declare themselves.

After Opening Statements, five minutes will be given to each team to respond to the other’s argument.

Next, three questions will be submitted to both teams with five minutes to answer (and another five for rebuttal later). 

 For thirty minutes to an hour (depending on participation), the audience will submit questions with the above rules still in effect. Questions must be directed at both teams.

Once the audience is satisfied, each judge will ask a question of theirs. Afterwards, the teams will have ten minutes to make their Closing Statements without rebuttal.

Based on the effectiveness of their arguments, the truthfulness of their responses, the amount of evidence cited and their sportsmanship, a winner will be chosen.

OOC *IMPORTANT*:

This is NOT a debate that results in any actual changes in Ishgard policy. The teams in the debate are simply arguing FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUING. The winning team does NOT actually set the policy for Ishgard.

As the participants have put a large effort into research and point-for-point consideration, interruptions and trolling are looked down upon heavily.

Judges must be unbiased and neutral on the topic at hand, both IC and OOC. Favoring one viewpoint from the beginning is highly frowned upon, as is any effort by participants to convince the judges.
