i'm honestly really shy about my writing and know it's not very good

i also have (probably) bad opinions about creating for the sake of creating vs. creating for the sake of entertaining that make it super stressful for me to do something like this without my already being very good at doing the thing

I, Meinberg, have no challenge skill for most of these sorts of things. I might have an edge up here, certainly, but I wouldn't count on it. However, I did triumph in Awful Big Brother through the sheer strength of my... whatever I have.

Okay so I have a friend who used to post here a lot but he's lost access to his account. He registered a new account with the sole purpose of playing this, but for some reason he hasn't gotten a login yet (emailed support etc). If you're like wanting to start this right away I understand, hopefully he'll be able to get logged in today.

The artist formerly known as BrickRedTruth. He hasn't been around in a while but if you have archives you could check out his MoonRise saga.

He still can't access his new account and has emailed support and stuff. I think they're busy with whatever is getting people those grimey lipstick titles.

It's okay if you're needing to start, I feel bad having asked you to hold off starting. Not really sure what to do if support won't get back to him.

Hey BK, has the game started? Do we have a deadline yet?

Not trying to rush LutR's friend at all, we should totally wait for them, I just want to make sure I have time to plan and write

I have an old idea kicking around I've never written anything beyond some mindmapping for, is that cool to work on? I'd really like to!

Okay: The game starts now! If the last guy does join soon, that's great, if he ends up not playing at all, that's fine too. I'll be the last one on the jury in that case, as a tiebreaker or something, if we need that at the end of the game.

Day 1 starts now! I will set the deadline for next wednesday evening.

I'm just going to talk about television in the meantime before you guys start posting your writing.

I really like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and that's basically all I've been watching. I hope to catch up to the current season soon.

I encourage you all to share anecdotes about your lives.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is probably the best comedy show on the air today.

The best drama, at least in my opinion, is the Leftovers. It had a very shaky first season, but the second season has been so good. So loving good.

I watched 4 episodes of that show (last season) and for every time I said "holy poo poo that rocks" there were 20 times I cringed and got annoyed. Maybe the second season is better but I don't really give passes to tv dramas, since there's so many good ones. If I lose interest I move on.

The second season is way a whole lot better, though. Imagine the Leftovers, except without those cringey moments.

Is the quality of S2 roughly equivalent to the quality of S1E03? Because that episode is amazing.
