Advice on Light-Sleeper for a Roommate

She isn't a troll or nasty, but my roommate is an insanely light sleeper, and she also is the last one who has to wake up between us.

A really crazy idea

Since the topic of writing stories based on the posts in HH comes up every so often, I am wondering how people would feel about a fanfiction group where the characters are based off the horrible people written about here.

Good Idea or something that will get me shot?
Thought I'd get some thoughts from you clever bunch on this.

I had to make my blog private temporarily recently after the police came sniffing round it.

Since none of us use real names or locations is there any way that we can get done by the police for what we write?

Some of you may be aware of the contraversial nature of the My Foul Housemate blog, but could you use it as evidence in a court of law to convict someone of something? If no names are mentioned is it slander? If no names or locations or details are mentioned can you use a blog to prove somebody did something?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

I think it's been mentioned before...

But may I respectfully request that there is a rule stating that people make up names for people rather than using letters/numbers? I know it sounds silly, but for some reason my brain has a harder time processing the latter than actual NAMES.

If the majority disagrees with me, that's okay, but I thought I'd throw it out there since I've seen a lot of those kinds of posts lately and they confuse me. :-/

Also, if people could break up wall-o-text whenever possible, that'd be great. It could just be that I have a crappy monitor but I often have to go back and reread several times with denser posts because I end up reading the same line over again or skip lines. I probably overcompensate by hitting the return key every 3 sentences, lol.

Hey guys I made a website...

If anyone has forgotten, awhile back I declared that I intended to write a script for a crappy student film based around The Sarah Saga and the story of the Final Fantasy VII house. I've done this, and I pitched it to the folks at the Student Filmmakers Guild, and a lot of folks expressed interest. We're having a casting call this Sunday night. Mostly, I just wanted to let everyone here know that I've made a website for the film that goes into detail about the characters, plot, etc. So, check it out if you're interested, and hey, I'd love your input.

The other one of my mod posts (apology)

Just tidying up. my apology post, plus a little bit extra.

If I may take off my mod hat of attempted neutrality for a moment and speak as just another member of the community with an opinion, I would like to also say that I actually agreed with a lot (in fact most) of what the snarky commenters, and the people on sf and sf_drama were saying. However I (after I realised the mistake of my own ill-advised bitchiness towards them) had to attempt to remain netural, and tried to deal with the situation as just a mod. This meant that I became a target for them, as they complained that I was defending the OP, when all I was trying to do was deal with Problem A which had been handed to me (the bitchy comments which lilenth requested I do something about) and fix my mistake. If the commenters had come to me first complaining about lilenth's entry, then it probably would have been the other way round and I would've been accused of picking on lilenth. Such is life/the internets/being a mod.

I'm not trying to say anything by this, just observing. This is the first time I've moderated a community and I'm learning as I go. Some things about being a mod suck, but oh well. It doesn't worry me too much if people end up hating me, as I don't really have any LJ-based (or even internet-based) reputation to spoil, as I keep to myself and my group of RL friends mostly, and post in communities very rarely. All I want is to make HH a fun community to share amusing housemate stories. I'm sorry if you guys have had to put up with HH's "stretch marks" as someone cleverly put it, and my learning curve of moderation. Hopefully with each incident like this, the incidents will become much fewer and less frequent, and/or easier to deal with.
I think my post would be more appropriately placed here. Posted yesterday (I think?):

I am sadded it had to come so soon.

I have some stuff to say in light of recent brouhahas over a recent post. This post detailed some crazy shit in an awful living situation, blahblahblah. A bunch of people commented saying they don't believe it.

I would like to lay down some rules for this sort of thing.

Oh and I would like to agree with one thing (well, agree with only one thing publicly) that was said on the drama community.

"It's for those grody housemates that come home drunk and barf in your underwear drawer, not sob stories."

Please take this into consideration when posting on HH. Thankyou.

Ministry of Crappy Student Films

Hey. I'm not sure if this is allowed now that all the Sarah Saga posts have been taken down. But since this hardly refers to the realities of the Saga, and since the Mod posts about it still remain, I'm going to hope that it's okay to post this here. I remember a lot of people getting similar ideas, so I thought I'd share a bit.

I'm writing a screenplay. Based on a combination of the Sarah Saga and the infamous FF VII house. Furthermore, I've pitched the idea to a few friends in my college's Film Guild, and they're interested in actually possibly making the film (!). It would be crappy, no-budget student film with random kids as actors and the campus as the setting, but I would think that might add to the charm. The people I would be making this with would be pretty much the same ones who once made films called "Once Upon a Time in Japan (I-III)," "The Last Passion of Samurai Jesus" and "Foucault on a Plane." Not exactly Spielberg, but entertaining background noise whilst drinking.

Before anyone gets their panties in a knot, no, the movie would not be about "Sarah," or whoever you may think Sarah actually was. Nor will it feature "Jenova." There are legal issues there, and copyright issues, besides (hello, vidya games!). Instead, it's a fictionalized story of a freshman's college experience sharing a room with (and ultimately joining up with) two other girls who believe themselves to be anime characters.

The basic concept that we're working with right now involves three lead characters: a confused freshman, a charismatic "otakukin," and her lover/lackey. And instead of believing that they're characters from a real anime, I'm doing the Show Within a Show thing; I made up a simple Magical Girl anime called Crystal Spirit Guardian that the characters lives will revolve around.

I've only got about half of the script written thus far, but I've got the entire plot outlined. There's a scene based on the infamous Sarah Saga Soul Party, and a few few that reference in-character sex (again, inspired by the Saga). There's also some "darker" scenes where characters fight and drama ensues, inspired by the FF VII house stories.

The main conflict/plot however, involves the Crystal Spirit Guardian trio being forced to contend with their fellow dorm-mates, who don't necessarily appreciate the mounds of glitter that they trail everywhere. Their ultimate nemesis? The rowdy boys living in the dorm's basement, whom everyone refers to as "the basement bastards," or "b-tards" for short. (we thought it was genius, but maybe not. meh)

So, uh, if you guys miss reading the Sarah Saga, but don't miss all the drama, well, in six months or so, I might have a bright shiny streaming video for y'all based on a fictionalized version of the same concept. At the very least, I could probably post the screenplay somewhere when its completely done, or start posting it in installments or something.

If anyone was particularly inspired by the Saga or similar stories (Nekobe, etc) then hit me up and feed me some ideas. I know everyone liked teh Soul Party, at least. I'd be contacting Dragontigerclaw for imput, but his journal has vanished. Damn those lawsuit threats he was getting...
I can't seem to hit upon a proper title for the thing.

housemate questions

as suggested from a recent post  I made in HH, heres the list of questions I've been sending to potential candidates for the room I'm renting out. Despite creepy person from that post, its actually gone quite well, and I have someone moving in this weekend.

Heres the idea from thenodrin:

</a></b></a>thenodrin

I like your list of questions.

In fact, I think you should post them to the sister site at hh_discuss. That way we can answer them as a meme and we can find out if we would make appropriate roommates for each other.

I think it would be an interesting get-to-know-the-forum exercise.


Suggestion

Would it be possible to make a rule about NSFW warnings?

Most of the entries are fine, but I just read one from a few days back that was a little lot more explicit than I like to read at work.

Just saying.
