Theatrical Muse Mod Icon


Rule Changes

Due to time constraints and in the interests of making activity checks as fair as possible we’re changing the current activity requirements of TM.

To remain active you will need to complete three topics per quarter and activity checks will be conducted as per the below:

Jan – Mar: Activity check Apr 1.

Apr – Jun: Activity check Jul 1.

July – Sept: Activity check Oct 1.

Oct – Dec: Activity check Jan 1.

Your topic will need to be posted to the community as well as your journal. Please include the topic number in the heading.

Activity checks will occur on the first day after the quarter ends and members who have not completed a topic in this time will be removed. As three topics per three months is not an onerous requirement there will be no warning system or three strikes – if you have not posted you will be removed – but please let us know in advance if there are circumstances that will prevent you from the deadline.

If you are removed for inactivity you can reapply but other applications will be considered first.

Muses that are removed for inactivity will not be available for 2 weeks after the removal (in case the removal is an error on our part). But if applications are received in that period we will hold on to them and they will be accepted as soon as the fortnight is over – so if your muse is removed incorrectly please let us know ASAP so we can fix our error.

Please note: All members including mods will be held to the same activity requirements.

Contemplative Randy



I wanted to re-introduce Randy, as he hasn't been around in about a year and a half...for which he profusely apologizes, but he was keeping busy while his mun dropped off the face of the planet. But then I met Randy's PB again and well, there's no better inspiration than geeking out over a character with the person who inspired you to write him.

Meet Randy Bosch. He is, quite possibly, the world's oldest intern, but that's only because he can't be bothered to complain about his job title. He works for the LAPD, in the Records and Identification Department, where he keeps in order all the boxes and pieces of paper that everyone else generates. He knows it all like the back of his hand, and everyone knows his name, just like Cheers.

In his spare time, he's the lead singer and guitarist for the LA-based rock band Binary, a devoted son to his mom Pauline, a protective brother to his sister Haley (and Tara, and every other woman in his life), and that guy who can't believe he's suddenly in his mid-thirties.

Randy is always sociable, and happy to connect with old friends as well as new ones. Just drop him a comment anytime. His mun promises not to let him get away for quite so long this time. ;)

Hi, I'm Connor Temple.

I, uh, well, if I told you what I do for a living, you'd never believe me, but I seriously have the coolest job in the world. It's totally ace.

I like dinosaurs, computers and Star Wars. Amongst other things, but they're definitely up there in my top five. I guess I'm a bit of a geek, but you know. Geeks shall inherit and all that.

Besides, I have a really hot girlfriend.

Nice to be here.

(ooc: This is Connor Temple, from the British TV show Primeval where time travelling dinosaurs are actually canon. He's a huge geek, really friendly, loves talking to people. His current canon is 4.07, so there will probably be spoilers for series 4 within his journal, and series 5 when it comes out, but they'll be marked!)

Name's Damon, Damon Salvatore to be exact.

Just passing through or so I hope, tend to follow in baby brother's footsteps just to... make him that litle bit uncomfortable.

Always end up getting mixed up in things without really meaning to, awfully funny how that happens. Guess that's what happens when you're too much of a good samaritan.

Anyhow nice to meet you and I'll be seeing you.

OOC: This muse is of course the infamous Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries, book and TV show. He's... um, unstable at best, but a lot of fun?

I'm told introductions are in order.

My name is Captain Becker and I'm a soldier in her Majesty's army.

Most of what I do is classified so there's not much more I can say.

OOC: This muse is of course from the TV show Primeval in which there are anomalies and dinosaurs :D

Saying goodbye.

This has proved to be one of the hardest decisions I've ever made, but after nearly six years here with various muses, and a little over five here with Chloe, I have decided to leave Theatrical Muse. I first joined on February 2nd, 2005, and Chloe made her first post in the community on November 9th, 2005. I've enjoyed my time here, and have had so much fun with all my muses, especially Chloe, but I feel that it's time to move on. Bart is coming with us, but who knows? At some point in the future, I may be back, with Bart or another muse.

Thanks, guys, and good luck with all your future endeavors.

-Becca, the mun

Introductions, I'm never too good with those. I'm G. Callen. Don't ask me what the 'G' stands for, I don't even know that one. I work for NCIS, Los Angeles division. Past that, my life is a mystery even to myself. So you can ask questions, doesn't mean you'll get an answer. Hell, I might not even know the answer.

[OOC: I bring to you G. Callen from the show NCIS: Los Angeles. He is caught up completely with the series.]

Ooooooo Loaded Prompt!

This one is READER PARTICIPATION (no not a rp, well maybe)

You guys have just posted what is probably the most loaded prompt you could have Joey react to:

Have you ever sold out?

I'm going to write this three different times. Each version of the story will be a minimum of 2,000 words (I hope)

Three different ways. 

For old farts who use to DnD call em the GOOD the BAD the NEUTRAL endings. 

All three of them will eventually be posted at Joey's Profile. Not only that you guys get to decide how good/meh/OMFG Joey goes...

For instance, who wants Joey to completely loose his shit? - remember; it's cannon that he's killed people for for much less than calling him a sell out. When pretty much the ONLY friend he had left in the world tried to tell him the truth (Victor told him he wasn't a rock star but a freak on display) he slit the guys throat and left him to dye in a back alley.. his friend who helped him get into music and helped him when no one else would.  Imagine what he'd do to a random punk / reporter...

Who wants him to break down and finally admit it... that he is a sell out and admit it not only to himself but to the world? Who wants him to simply shrug it off as a random comment from a heckler at a show and eat that person afterwards? 

You want to poke the "rock star" with a stick to see what happens now's your chance.

Livejournal and the "inactive" purge.

ETA: Livejournal has added an essential edit to their news post about deleting inactive communities and journals: "A journal is defined as inactive if it has not been logged into for 24 consecutive months and has only one post (i.e., the welcome post). A community is defined as inactive if has not been updated for 24 consecutive months and has only one entry and no comments."

This probably means that you and your pup and the writing you have done is safe. Phew.

I'm preserving the original post under the following cut, just for posterity's sake.

TM Mod



I will be the first to admit that I haven't been the most attentive of moderators lately. It's been a very long time since I've done an audit of my fandoms, due to a mixture of RL work duties and other distractions. Rather than do one now, and have to send out warnings to what looks like 99% of my muses, I thought I'd post a warning here first. (Seriously guys, I just went through the last month and there were only three current muses. 3 out of more than 60 muses. THREE. Out of SIXTY!!! I know I'm the pot calling the kettle black here, but wow. This is going to be a bloodbath, if there isn't some serious prompt posting.)

For all the muses in Books, Mythology and TV L-Z fandoms, I will be auditing those groups next weekend (June 5-6). And because the audit is so long overdue, I may have to do some cuts without warnings. It's just been too long. So here's what I'm going to do. Any muse I come across who hasn't posted a prompt reply in 2010 will be automatically removed. I figure anyone who hasn't had the time to do a prompt in the past 5 months has essentially abandoned the muse, and will be handled accordingly. For everyone else that's behind, as long as your most recent prompt was done this year, I will follow the usual warning system. If you have two warnings or fewer, you will get a warning to update before action is taken. Usually we operate on a 3 strikes and you're out - no warning - system, but since it's been so long since I audited, I'll make an exception this once and send warnings on the 3rd strike. But just this once.

Consider this post as a pre-warning. If your muse is behind, use this coming week to catch up and avoid having that warning on your record. If there is a reason you won't be able to update in the next couple of weeks, email me with a hiatus request. (To be current, you must have answered at least one of prompts #334, 335, 336 or 337. And by next weekend, #338 will be up, so to be safe, you might as well keep to the later numbers, otherwise you'll just be behind in another week.)

Also, I recently took over the Books fandom, so if anyone out there has been waiting to hear about a books muse, your email may have been lost in the shuffle, so feel free to send it again. The books email is now being routed to me, and I will be sure to respond within a week.
