Lost Souls OOC
After the Storm 
6th-Aug-2006 02:52 am
I would first like to take this opportunity to thank the muns of Morpheus, Karolina, Molly and Trinity for such an intense, action-packed, fun and creative 93-post long story thread. I really enjoyed it and feel privileged to have been part of it. I especially liked the presence of non-Matrix characters, which added a very interesting and often funny twist to the plot.

Also, I would like to apologise if I haven't been very "present" online recently: I have spent more than a month living in hotels as well as friends' and family's places in four different countries on two continents, before settling down very recently into my new home. I therefore look forward to getting back into some LiveJournal role-playing action soon!

This post is actually about getting back to it, and I would appreciate the input of the four above-mentioned muns regarding the following idea.

At the end of the Time to Be Heroes story thread, Morpheus, Karolina, Molly, Trinity and Neo walked through the "exit door" which Seraph had opened for them. As discussed on OOC, we could agree that the said door led back to Morpheus' apartment.

I would therefore suggest setting up a new story thread on LSNY (which I would be glad to initiate, unless someone else would like to chip in) about the "Party of Five" (pun intended!) getting into Morpheus' apartment after the Time to Be Heroes action. However, Trinity would leave almost immediately to go gather some medical supplies for the rest of the group.

While Trinity is gone, I would imagine that Morpheus would need to heal, Karolina would need to re-energise, Molly would need to rest, and Neo would want to say a proper hello to Morpheus (who he hasn't seen since Neo left for Zero One with Trinity in the Logos hovercraft, at the end of The Matrix Revolutions) in addition to being formerly introduced to Karolina and Molly. Neo would also have a lot of questions about why Morpheus and Trinity don't seem to be able to exit the Matrix at will, or to request downloads from an operator aboard an hovercraft, etc.

Please let me know by replying to this post what you think of this idea for a new story thread which would again involve a lot of characters but which we could try to keep relatively short... Thanks!

I think that is a good idea since I agree that certain things need to be wrapped up so-to-speak. Trinity however, as you have mentioned, does go off for medical supplies. Hence, if she were to take part in this thread (for only a few posts before she leaves) then it would make the post kinda retroactive. If this is an issue then please go ahead and just mention that she had already left.

NeoMun, I do believe that at one point Neo and Trinity need to catch up on what's been going on and clear the air between them so-to-speak. Therefore, if she does take part in the thread, maybe they could have a brief conversation in a seperate thread within the post? Otherwise, it could be left for another post.

Having said that I wanted to mention that this (and the thread where she went to get medical supplies - "Not all women like to shop" post) is the last time Trinity will be making an appearance in LSNY. I am moving her to a new LA based community. I'm thinking of marking her exit simply by using Seraph's corridor which she is currently in after having run away from Agents and Deacon Frost (who just freakin' rocks in all his evil glory)in the aforementioned thread and have her appear in LA. Perhaps I would put this up in a last closed post on LSNY.

It has been more than a pleasure to RP with you guys (Karolina, Molly, Morpheus, Neo, Smith). Echoing what NeoMun said,you guys are super talented writers and have the creativity to match. Our cross fandom RP's worked out really well, which is why I hope that they will continue. I hope to RP with you at Tenebrae Nostro (LA) or your respective journals.

Best wishes,

I'd like to apologize for my own relative silence; this summer has been packed to the rafters with work, classes and trips ^^;

That said, I'd love to continue to play with the three of you! I agree that we should certainly continue the wind-down/Q&A session at Morpheus' apartment. Would it be all right if, when I post, I fastforward to morning? Karolina isn't going to coherent at all until she gets some sunlight, and I believe Molly's going to need some serious sleep as well.

What's more, this seems to be a good opportunity to accompany Trinity mun to Tenebrae Nostro. After all, our characters are going to be pretty hot with the police after this incident, and LA just so happens to be Karolina and Molly's hometown, so they'd be happy to go back ^_^ K was originally looking for the rest of the Runaways when she came to NY, so LA would be the next logical place to search!

Sad to say, but LSNY seems to be pretty dead and I'd hate for this storyline and any potential development to die with it.

Hello! Please don't apologise: I totally understand and after all, LiveJournal role-playing is a game, so it shouldn't become a burden or an obligation! Glad to see you back, though! :-)

It would be awesome to keep playing all together indeed: I really like your character and that way you play her! So, as you might have seen, I have posted the first scene of the story thread (After the Storm) with the group reaching Morpheus' apartment.

Because what happened when they met in Reunion, Trinity and Neo
need to have an immediate chat before she leaves to gather medical supplies. Trinity might not have much involvement in the After the Storm story afterwards since she is going to a store and then she'll be running away for her life, probably all the way to Los Angeles!

I think that there would be no problem for you to write about Karolina simply crashing somewhere until the morning. I assume that Molly might do something similar indeed, and Neo and Morpheus might simply chat a little bit before Morpheus also needs to lie down and rest.

As to the move to Los Angeles, I think that it could be triggered by Trinity contacting one of us to say that she had to run away all the way over there, and by the fact that Agents and police might be closing in on the group. We could then find a way to make the actual physical "move" from New York to Los Angeles but I think that it has become imperative in the total absence of any moderation of the Lost Souls New York community.

Hello again! Just wanted to follow-up on the After the Storm story thread.

As you might have read, Trinity went out to get some supplies and met with Deacon Frost (insert thunder sound here!). She then fled to Los Angeles.

My view on how to role-play the next step was as follows: when Trinity meets Frost and gets into fights and shootings, Neo will sense this and rush to her help, abandoning Karolina, Morpheus and Molly in the apartment as they rest (sorry!).

Neo will arrive at the convenience store but Trinity will have already vanished. Worried like hell, Neo will want to again rush to her help (somehow!) and that's when Trinity will succeed in calling Neo by phone to tell him that she found herself in Los Angeles, that she is fine and safe.

Reassured (-ish!), Neo will come back to Morpheus' apartment and watch over his sleeping friends for the whole night. The next post in the sequence of events would be Karolina's dream and awakening post, and we could resume the story there.

Thanks for letting me know what you think and whether that would be all right with you!

That sounds more or less like what I hazily imagined would be happening ^^ I'm sorry if I created any inconvenience by jumping ahead to morning with K, but I figured that it could easily be played around in the threads above her and in Trinity's post, and it gave sort of framing to the time.

Hi there! No problem at all, really! I just hadn't really thought about what Neo would spend his night doing -- he's not too much into clubbing or going out to late-night raves -- and I hope that you don't mind the very, very long posts I wrote!

So we'll do it like that: Trinity and Neo will chat on the phone, Neo will come back to the apartment, and the next scene will be Karolina getting up. See you in the morning, then!
