When I joined the guild, I didn't expect to have any close relationships with my fellow roleplayers. I figured that we'd maybe have one or two roleplays together, have a general awareness of someone else's username, and that would be that. Instead, I ended up finding myself with a close knit circle of friends. There'll all deserving of a shout out, so here goes nothing!

@BlueSky44: The Watson to my Holmes, we've been friends for ages. Like any pair of friends, we've had our ups and downs but at the end of the day, we're there for each other. Thank you for supporting me in all of these crazy endeavors, as well as introducing me properly to comics. I can't wait to see what horrible nonsense we get up to each day.

@Nallore: I still remember thinking of you as "the weird chick who likes to grope people!" Oh, Nally, you have to be one of the strangest people the guild has to offer, but you're also one of the kindest. (Except for when you're throwing limbs at everyone...Wonder if you'll ever run out of ones to chuck?) I won't lie, I was a bit nervous about taking on a new Co-GM, but you've been amazing. Thank you so much for helping me try my hand at different story lines, especially the ones that don't make much sense.

@FantasyChic: I considered writing this in pink just for you. We weren't always friends, but I've seen you around for ages. Remember the good old days of superhero roleplays? Yeah. We go back. You're incredibly spunky and I'm glad that I've gotten to know you. Your characters are becoming my favorites lately and I cannot wait to read what you come up with next.

@Charnobylisk: It's been ages since I've gotten to chat with Char and I cannot wait to see her on the site again. We came up with conspiracy theories together about Lady A's various roleplays, as well as the crack ship Édlana. She's never failed to put a smile on my face.

@Lady Amalthea: There aren't very many people who can GM simultaneously six or seven roleplays and make it look almost effortless. Lady A brings amazing dedication to each thing she does and while she's a hardass, that doesn't have to be a bad thing. She's my favorite GM on the site, as her roleplays are always thrilling and they last for over a year. There's never a dull moment with Lady A.

@mnkee: Ships Ahoy! If there's anyone who ships more than me, it's got to be mnkee. Shipping tendencies aside, she's a phenomenal writer and (in my opinion) needs to give herself more credit. She's incredibly creative, as well as brilliant at writing evocatively. You cannot help but feel for her characters and their motivations always come through.

Theme Song:



Behold, my collection of ships. Some of these sailed. Some of these never had a chance. Others are serious, some cute, and some are plain old crack ships.

  • Guintro
    • Guinevere Stark and Pietro Maximoff
    • The OTP
    • RPed with @BlueSky44 in X-Men: Darkness Rising
    • Guin and Pietro are an interesting pairing, to say the very least. Both of them have uncertain motivations driving their actions, as well as the tall shadow of an infamous father. They both adore 80's music and outdated tech, but they haven't had a lot of time in game to connect with each other on an emotional level. At first, it seemed like they may fizzle out, but their relationship is growing stronger with each and every post. I'm not usually one for shipping, but they're my RP OTP. Let's just hope neither of them die!
  • Luna
    • Runa Baldurdattir and Lance Banner
    • The Quiet Ship
    • RPed with @BlueSky44 in X-Men: Darkness Rising Test Collabs
    • My favorite ships always happen by accident, where two characters just happen to be in the same place at the same time and form a connection. That's exactly what happened with Lance and Runa. Both of them are judged not by their own actions, but by that of a relative. In Lance's case, his father's - and in Runa's case, her uncle's. They're both relatively quiet individuals but when they're together, they create something beautiful. Hopefully we'll find a RP for the two of them to be in together soon...Otherwise, just going to have to wait until it's time for a certain Asgardian to appear in X-Men.
  • Jati:
    • Jack Hudson and Tatiana Korvo
    • The Sweetheart Ship
    • RPed with @Lady Amalthea in the Walking Dead
    • Perhaps the most romantic ship, it's also one of the most difficult ones for me to write for. Slipping into the utter kindness and empathy of Jati, the two of them holding on fiercely no matter the odds, can be a bit of a challenge. They're pure and sweet, a definite contrast to the easy grittiness found in the apocalypse. Of course, with Tatiana missing and carrying their unborn child, things aren't looking too great for them.... <.>
  • Scallum:
    • Scarleth Pevensey and Callum Bowman
    • The Hateful Ship
    • RPed with @Heat in Freedom in the Stars: Deathbound
    • This ship never got much of a chance to sail, beyond speculation in the chat. Scallum ended up becoming a synonym for hateful relationships, due to the incredibly angry and violent natures of these two individuals. Both of them hardened criminals, they were a perfect, angry match for each other. Had the roleplay lasted longer, perhaps Scallum could have been more than just an idea.
  • Ricily:
    • Cecily Ashworth and Riley Ridgeway
    • The Awkward Ship
    • RPed with @Nallore in Darker Than Black
    • Perhaps one of my favorite ships, it's also one of the saddest ones. It also may potentially not even exist. Cecily and Riley work extremely well together, but the thing is, Cecily's asexual. The two of them are awkwardly fumbling around each other, hesitant and uncertain. Does Cecily like romance? Time will tell, but for now, this ship seems doomed to sink.
  • Trarx:
    • Tryke Lockley and Marx Rouen
    • The Ship That Never Was
    • RPed with @Lady Amalthea in The Walking Dead and Alteian Nexus
    • Aggghhh! Of all the ships that never sailed, the Arm Ship has to come to mind. They started off as a joke in the Altenian Nexus, one that never got to be seen through due to the RP ending. And when given a chance to meet each other again in the Walking Dead, LLA reared her head and took both of them hardly a moment later. Maybe third time's a charm?
  • Sutiam:
    • Sutton Smith and Liam Matthews
    • The Ghost Ship
    • RPed with @Pundii in Abandoned Hope
    • Ah, this ship will always have a special place in my heart! Sutton died before anything could come of it, but both Pundii and I had been shipping them without saying a word to the other. They both wanted to travel and to see the world. It's incredibly sad that they never got the chance to explore their passion together, or to even properly know the other person.


The Morose Multiverse began with the apocalypse RP, Abandoned Hope. This RP, which I GMed with @BlueSky44, incorporated a lot of lore from various shows and books that we liked. At first, we thought that was the biggest connection it would have. It has now expanded into a fully blown universe, with multiple GM's running connected RP, and an established continuity throughout the timeline.

Guinevere Stark


Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

Guin managed to do a decent job of damaging the restraints. It was enough that she should be able to slip out of them if needed, provided that her father didn't notice she'd damaged them in the first place. She doubted that Banner would notice - he seemed to have tunnel vision on Lance. She glanced at the monitor Tony was looking at, before realizing P.H.I.L. was sending him data and she slipped off the watch, causing P.H.I.L. to stop sending Tony information about her vitals. From the data P.H.I.L. had sent, it wasn't clear what was wrong with Guin. However, there was a match on the photograph. It identified the man as Zebediah Kilgrave, known on the streets as the Purple Man. He was a dangerous criminal, just released from the Raft, who had the ability to control minds.

"For once, I agree with the Hulk - punching a wall would be nice about now..." Banner muttered, as he started getting blood samples and the likes from Lance and running tests. He then went to get some from Guin and noticed her restraints were damaged. "Tony, she's your problem..." Banner mumbled. He was still convinced Guin had done this to Lance.


Guinevere Stark


Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

Guin didn't protest when Tony put her in a bed, but she noticed the restraints. If she was kept in there overnight, that'd be no good. She began to fiddle with the restraints quietly, attempting to damage them without Tony noticing so she could make an escape if she needed to, create the prototype, and return to medical before anyone came to check on her in the morning. P.H.I.L. was still sending Tony a constant stream of data on her whereabouts and vitals. However, P.H.I.L. also started sending Tony the photos that the A.I. had captured during the event - the one Guin had taken of Kilgrave to run the database search.

"NO! BAD SON!" Hulk scolded Lance for still struggling to get free. He comically ducked his head in order to fit under the door of medical and took Lance over to a bed, holding him down in it with just one hand. The Hulk stared at Tony for a moment, letting out a roar before he shifted back into Banner. Banner wasn't even done turning back before he put the restraints on the bed on Lance to keep him from getting loose. Banner wiped off a bead of sweat, grabbing one of the spare shirts they kept in the lab. "Guin definitely gave him something," Banner mumbled.


Guinevere Stark


Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

"Whatever..." Guin grumbled, uncharacteristically not reacting to the Hulk. She hadn't seen the Hulk in person very often, but she wasn't yet at the point where she could completely ignore the green rage monster - and that was exactly what she was doing. She let Tony drag her to medical. The portion of her brain that was free was doing a happy dance - her father was brilliant. He had to be able to figure it out. The controlled part of her mind was currently going through every possible test Tony could run and the ways to ensure the results came out in a certain fashion.

"NOOOOO!" the Hulk roared as Lance requested to be released. And as if to make a point about smashing things, the Hulk punched the wall, creating a gigantic fist sized hole in it. Lance's glowing hardly seemed to bother him, as if Hulk and Banner were both in control and both enacting on their paternal instincts. He took his other hand and carried Lance practically like a baby to medical, letting out the occasional impatient roar. Something had clearly messed with his kid and Hulk wanted to smash whatever it was. Banner had his suspicions that it had been the Stark girl, but Hulk wasn't too sure yet. He was showing surprising restraint.


Guinevere Stark


Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

"I'm fine, honest..." Guin mumbled, not moving from where she was. She knew from experience that if she shoved past Tony right now to get to the lab, he'd only become more suspicious of her. The easiest thing to do would be to let him tire himself out with tests, until he admitted there was nothing wrong with her, and then she could complete the task. It would allow her to complete both sets of instructions from Kilgrave.

Banner looked livid as Lance pushed past him and in an instant, he turned to grab his son, only to shift into the Hulk. "Son!" the Hulk roared, grabbing Lance securely before looking at Tony for direction. The Hulk hadn't come out to smash or fight or destroy or any of his usual activities. Instead, he seemed to be there out of concern for Lance, wanting to make sure that his son (as in his mind, Lance was his and not Banner's) was okay. "Son hurt! Hulk angry!" he then shouted at Tony, clearly impatient.


Guinevere Stark


Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

No matter what she did, those words wouldn't stop echoing in her head. It was as if her brain had dedicated two frequencies for thought. The lower frequency was the commands of Kilgrave - to create a working prototype of Project Ultron and deliver it to him, without being caught. Yet the higher frequency - or perhaps higher speed would be more apt - those thoughts were her own. Throughout all of her drug abuse, she had wanted to slow her thoughts down to match the rate of the world. And now, it seemed that speed was the only thing allowing her some independent thought. But it was not without great cost, as while she could still think, she couldn't control her own actions.

"I've got something I need to work on - mind moving out of the way, Dad?" Guin asked, crossing her arms.

Banner frowned, looking at Lance and Guin again before looking at Tony. Guin definitely was on something. She wasn't fidgeting like she had been lately anyways. As for Lance...Tony's description of his behavior seemed off. He didn't look high, but he could have just been hiding it. He sighed and pinched his nose. "Maybe she slipped him something, would explain his behavior...You gotta get your kid under control, Tony..."


Guinevere Stark


Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

Guin saw double as she looked at Tony for a moment, before the world slid back into focus as she heard Lance explain why they had returned early. Kilgrave had been clear in his instructions - she was supposed to do whatever it took to not be caught. Part of her was glad that was the stipulation - it meant that she wouldn't hurt her father. That course of action, by definition, would mean that she'd be caught by the authorities or would have been caught by her father. "Yeah, it was kinda a lame place to have a date anyways," Guin lied.

Banner saw the alert from Tony and he put down his notepad. He had been sketching out a potential reaction mechanism for a peptide synthesis. Leaving the lab, he went a flight of stairs down to enter the hallway Tony, Guin, and Lance were in. He sighed a bit - Guin looked a bit high to him. Lance looked fine. "You guys are home early..." Banner said softly, walking over to stand next to Tony. "What'd she use?" he whispered to him.


Guinevere Stark


Guin let Lance lead her out of the event, not exactly sure how she felt about the implication Kilgrave and Hammer gave that they were on a date. Sure, that had been the lie they more or less had given to their parents - but having this Derren Brown Asshole and Justin Douchebag talking about it like it was real made her feel a little more than uncomfortable. She would've taken her arm away from Lance if she could, but her body and her mind had other ideas.

Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...

It wouldn't stop echoing in her head. As she kept on thinking through Project Ultron the entire car ride back to Stark Towers, that same sentence was sticking with her. She hadn't even seen Tony say it - she just overheard it one day when she was walking down the hallway to the lab. P.H.I.L. was continuing to broadcast a distress signal to Tony that Guin was completely unaware of, having believed that she shut it down per Kilgrave's instructions. She got into the elevator with Lance quietly, needing to get to one of the labs as well to get to work.


Guinevere Stark


"Oh, from what I know about Ms. Stark, she'd naturally run off at this point - except for she was on a date tonight, wasn't she?" Hammer said with a laugh. "Send the kids off together. Have them finish their date at Stark Tower, while Ms. Stark gets to work on my project. Mr. Calrissian...Have him try to steal files from Dr. Banner," Justin requested. He then smiled at them, taking another sip of his champagne before going over to speak with the head of Trask Industries.

Guin's heart was beating rapidly. Why had she promised them a prototype? And why was it she felt this need to do whatever Kilgrave said? There had to be some sort of scientific explanation behind it. She felt high, so maybe it was some sort of drug - but she hadn't taken or had anything since she got there. And it only seemed to matter when Kilgrave spoke directly to them. No one else seemed to be influenced. She regretted not paying more attention in her classes - but she had been making an effort in biology. Was Kilgrave a mutant? Was that how he was doing this? And it didn't seem to be like Loki's mind control - they hadn't been touched with a staff.

Her father's words were still echoing in her head.

Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...


Guinevere Stark


Guin nodded at Kilgrave's instructions, tapping at her watch and attempting to disable P.H.I.L.'s priority protocols. They were the ones that sent her father information about her each and every action. The override appeared to have been successful, but Tony was a better programmer than she was at the moment. Rather than actually disabling the protocols, P.H.I.L. sent a discrete message to Stark Tower alerting Tony that Guin had attempted to disable them. He included her current coordinates and location, as well as her vitals. "I'll have the prototype finished in the morning," Guin said numbly.

"This really is the beginning of a beautiful partnership, Zebediah," Hammer said with a grin. "And as promised, the first half of your requests," Hammer added, handing a flash drive to Kilgrave. Guin couldn't help but wonder what was on it, but her mind was already replaying everything she'd ever heard mentioned about Project Ultron before.

Peace in our time...Peace in our time...Peace in our time...


Guinevere Stark


Hammer nodded, taking a sip of his champagne. There were several ideas he had for what the Stark girl could do for him. There were rumors of a top secret server that Stark Industries had, where all of Tony Stark's plans were kept. It was supposedly unable to be hacked into by anyone other than a Stark themselves. Of course, there was a file he was interested in. He only had been able to get half of it - but he needed the other piece. It was supposedly going to be the keystone of Stark's presentation at the Stark Expo.

"I'll need at least Lance for a while - though she could be useful too," Hammer admitted. "Get her to bring me a working prototype for the Stark Industries project with the codename Ultron," Hammer finally asked Kilgrave. Guin's blood began to run cold as she heard the name - her father and Banner were working on the project. It explained why they wanted Lance initially, since he had access to it. In the wrong hands, it could be disastrous... Even in the right hands, it was a bit of a gamble. But she was powerless to do anything.
