Your character has hit their physical limit. They have already collapsed or needed medical attention--whether from exhaustion, injury, whatever the cause.

Do they let themselves recuperate in a reasonable fashion? Do they push themselves too hard through that into a worse state? How do they recover from that low?

Welcome back to another week. I hope yours is a good one. 

What is a simple pleasure your pup enjoys? I'm thinking thing like getting into bed when the sheets have been freshly changed, curling up with a blanket fresh from the dryer, or a hot towel to wipe your face with. That sort of thing. 

And what about you?

1. Left foot OFF the pedal
2. Down collective (while saying the words 'Down collective')
3. Roll the throttle off (while saying the words 'close throttle')
4. Right pedal (while saying the words 'right pedal as needed')
5. Lift collective about an inch (while saying the words 'Check collective')
5. Announce something scatological (do not actually do anything scatological at this time)

While an actual engine-failure-inspired autorotation has to be done very quickly and without hesitation, the practice ones can be handled at a slightly slower pace to make sure you learn to do them quickly. Turns out that if you announce each step out loud it paces you properly, plus if you announce 'Down collective! Close throttle! Right pedal! Check collective! Piss your pants!', you feel much, much less need to actually dump core in any way.

Similar to the logic puzzle, it's been a few years since we've had a post on how to search through community tags with html. Here's a refresher course, with some additional information given that I've learned some new tricks.

Searching through tags, how to get around that weird error, and searching by journal name for people without tags )

So, it's been a few years since we had one of these, so why not? Solve the puzzle by finding out which drinks, rooms, room numbers, and pets belong to whom, and what the pets are named.

Bonus question: Name the plant.

1. There are five "rooms" in a row, listed left to right (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
2. Jay spends his time in the garage.
3. Emcee drinks gin.
4. The person who lives in the sauna has a pet named Annabelle.
5. Bonnie's pet is called John, after her sons.
6. The sauna is just to the left of the corner of the bar.
7. The person who owns a dog drinks coffee.
8. An unnamed plant lives at the practice range.
9. The person in the middle room has an animal named George.
10. Chirrut likes room number 1.
11. The cockatiel lives next door to the person who drinks green tea.
12. The person who owns the plant lives next door to the person who drinks water.
13. Hans the glittery rock "lives" next door to the sauna.
14. Oswin owns a cat.
15. Chirrut's room is next door to the lake.
16. Jay owns George.
17. Annabelle's owner drinks chai tea.
18. Emcee sings in the corner of the bar.

Here is a nifty link that will draw a graph for you. I'll post the solution here on Wednesday.

So, I wanted to get AU Week out of the way before I announced this, but I might as well do it now.

Me and Zed were talking a couple of weeks back about the fact that there was no way to get digital only content, like Orange Is The New Black and The Tick, in Milliways. I talked to our very awesome mods, and our ideas have been accepted and approved.

This means that Milliways now has a repository for web originals located in the library next to the DVDs and Blu-rays, and your pup can now get a terminal to access the new computer network. The network is designed to allow sharing of content, inter-Bar emails and stuff like that. Still no true internet, though.

Hope you guys enjoy, and thanks to Zed for the repository idea, as well as the invaluable advice.

Happy RPing!

 Wow, people, that was amazing! Who'd have thought there could be a succulent AU! And all the other amazing ideas people were posting and threading out.

Thanks ever so much for participating, and thanks to Munnin, my partner in crime, for doing most if the organising work this year, as I am laid up in hospital and relegated to using my Kindle Fire tablet in between medical stuff happening. Still, it's amazing it was possible at all; we all live in the future now!

I suppose we can keep playing for the rest of the weekend, finishing off ideas and threads, but perhaps no new AU EPs once it's officially Monday? Then normalcy can return. As soon as we've established what's normal, anyway.

Let's do this again next year.

At the tail end of AU week, I'm stealing an idea fractalmuses shared with me on Discord. 

If your pup were to be in a Star Wars AU, what would their role be? Or what if it were a Star Trek AU instead? Would they be in Starfleet? If so, what branch: command, operations, or sciences?

What are some of your character’s cheesiest--for lack of a better word--canon lines? Cheesy can be a lot of things, good and bad--bombastic, corny, clunky, earnest, facile, overwritten, overacted, over-the-top in one way or another… Does it make you cringe every time, or do you kind of love it?

(NB: I’m asking as someone whose character actually says “There is no stopping it! There is only…...THE WAR.”)

This AU week is full of great stuff and a returning Milliwaysers too. I'm only listing three here, fill up the comments with what you're loving.

Ibani continues to be heartbreaking.

Star Wars as Star Trek with Hera, Kanan and Thrawn is so cool. I love this.

Succulent AU, I love that this happened.
