What would we do without a chat room here at CC?
Contrary to my opening statement, this post is not meant to praise the wonderful staff and site of CC, but to share an idea for the future!
So long story short, I've tried to make it my mission that every time I enter the chat with the group that was in when I first came to the chat (Freak, Jen, Jaily, Ben E.) I say something original, usually something that doesn't make sense. Today when I entered, I talked about how we should make a sitcom of our wild antics (though it was just Jaily and Jen in at the time) so I started telling it (the show)! Then I had the idea (and with much support from the other two (NOT REALLY! THEY MADE ME GIVE THEM CREDIT (not really))) to write the sitcom and post it here, in the stories forum. My first thought was "that's illegal--it's not lego." But then I thought: "Wait, I could MAKE it Lego!" My next thought was: "But it would be exclusionary to not include anyone who wants to be in." So I came up with the idea to write MULTIPLE episodes, each with 15 different CC Members!
The idea is: Post here, and list the pieces (and please have pics/links of the pieces or the actual fig) of your sig fig that you'd like to have on the show. However, the rules for this are like Arky's (Sava's) casting call for Ikros. No custom pieces. And also, since my collection is considerably smaller than many other peoples', it is likely that I will not have the exact pieces necisary for the fig. If this is the case, I'll PM you, but this problem can be avoided if you choose a semi-simple fig, or even better, list more than one.
Unfortunately, I can't star 300+ (even though many don't post) people in a show, so I have to limit it to 15 an episode. It's a first come first serve basis, but for this first episode, I'm going to for sure include Jen, Jaily, and me, and Freak and Ben E. (the last two I need their permission as I haven't asked it of them yet).
I think that's everything, but I feel that three closing statements are in order:
1) I've thought long and hard about it, but I've decided that I am willing to do this. Why wouldn't I? It's a story that makes fun of sitcoms--the jokes will be very bad (but in that, I hope, humor). This will likely tarnish whatever reputation I had here as a respectable person. However, I hope that I can be looked on as both a "little weirdo" (in Jen's words) and a semi-respected individual.
2) This probably won't be done for a while, as it is summer and we (my family) has plans.
3) This is supposed to be fun. Please don't kill each other (assuming people actually want to be in this) trying to get spots. If you don't make it in the first episode because you weren't on at the correct time, don't worry. Those (except me-- I need to be in it for motivational purposes, and possibly one of the four mentioned above, alternating each time) who have been picked for the first episode will not be picked for the second unless everyone who wants to be in has signed up. This is the same for how ever many round are necisary.
I think that's everything, please PM me with other questions or concerns, etc.
<<edit: I will use your fig for nothing other than the previously mentioned (this is the legal stuff), and to clarify this is a story like, I take a picture and put on a caption, not animated>>
