Hello, fellow shippers. This is ninety6tears
reporting for my first time hosting the DPPs!
To get things started, I have a couple days planned for this week that might go more smoothly if people are given some advance time to scrounge things up, so a couple preliminary tips:
Firstly, Friday will be Don't Frakkin' Laugh day, for which you will want to come with all things funny
. I will explain more about the (sorta) game later, but just know that spammage of anything - manips, gifs, macros, one-liners - will be happening. It doesn't have to be something you
made, but if you want to get started on making some hilarity, you have some time. You will be able to play very fast and loose with what is considered pilots-related, so don't feel that you have to limit yourself to BSG-related images, etc.
Something encouraging some more creativity will be Pilot secrets on Sunday. With some inspiration from the format of PostSecret
, I want you to create some secrets - But I don't want them to be yours. The idea is to imagine you are Kara or Lee or some other character and create what they would have to make a postcard about (Yes, we are assuming the Ikea ship also provides snail-mail ship-to-ship service - Perhaps secrets are posted somewhere in the Galactica hallways?) Secrets can be anything from Kara and/or Lee or from other characters related somehow to Kara or Lee, but be creative with how mysterious or vague they are; we're going to be having some fun guessing who it's from and at what point in time if it's not obvious.
Consider this an opportunity to flex your personal canon creativity and explore the aspects of characters that you believe to be there even if they're not the most obvious interpretations. And keep in mind, not all secrets are dark and deep: They can be funny and uplifting too.
(I should add that there isn't any requirement for these secrets to be images, it's just encouraged.)
