Roleplay Community Re-boot!

I've noticed that a lot of the communities I used to frequent are no longer as active as they used to do, so I'm trying to respark some of them. Hope this kind of post is okay here.

I'm looking to re-boot a roleplay community I had started with some friends a few years ago, sl_csi_rp

This community was mainly started for CSI slash, but I figured I'd open it up to any kind of crime drama and maybe there might be more interest. I also started one over on Dreamwidth (it seems like that's where everyone is headed to nowadays).

If you are interested or know of anyone who might be interested, please come over to the community and take a look. No real rules, just common sense stuff.

Mods, if this isn't allowed, please delete.

Mit liv for tiden

For a long period last year I wasn't well. Luckily I am over it now but I still haven't got any boyfriend and no education. It bothers me. I know I can be picky when it comes to guys, but I think you are allowed to be that when you want it to be more than just a fling or a one-night stand. Personally I don't think I'm ugly, I know I got humor and I know how to use my head. But still noone seems to think of me like girlfriend material. It's like I got a "Friend-zone" stamp in my forehead. As if I'm not suppose to be the girlfriend of the guys I'm attracted to. I don't understand it and it really bothers me.

Back in february I was hired as a receptionist at some physiotherapists. It's a wonderful place, with wonderfull costumer, fantastic collegues and a good boss. I have spared with my boss so that I also can start massaging people, and thats within the next 14 days. I'm so freaking excited and nervouse at the same time. It's because the two other masseurs we have employed have had to call in sick for a while because of problems with their wrists. And I wouldn't want that already at the age of 25-26.
I have made this deal with my boss, that I can start by practicing at my collegues from the other job.

I have decided (after digging up this old fanfic of mine) to come out of hiding and share this with you.
This is suitable for all ages, it's a Catherine/Gil fic, I suppose, with a twist :)

Hey all! Just wanted to pop in and do a quick ad for a new CSI roleplay. Right now it's for all three CSI installations but later on we might expand to other crime shows. :D

It's in the very early stages and we need a lot of people. We're also in the renovating process, changing the layout of such. Please stop by, read the rules and see if you're interested!

Thank you!

First Weekly Contest - Questions Answered!

I'm sorry it's taken so long, but I finally got the answers for the question that was picked for the first weekly contest. I was also allowed to ask a question, so I'm gonna include both questions/answers here. Enjoy!

Here are the answers from David Rambo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Rambo

1. Comparing what I read in the news about our local crime scene lab techs with what's shown on CSI, it seems like there is one area that's nowhere near reality on your show: workload. Have you ever thought about adding large backlogs and turnaround times to your plots in order to reflect how overworked many real life CSIs are?

That's a great suggestion. Everyone can relate to having too much work on their plate. We have depicted some heavy workload shifts, especially in autopsy, where it's kind of fun to see bodies stacked on gurneys stretching down the halls of the coroner's office. You'll often hear our team say they're "working a double" or even "a triple." But they usually don't show the stress of that. I've seen real-life Vegas CSIs come off a double shift looking as if they just got to work. If there's a new challenge, a new way to look at a situation, they're stimulated and on the job.

2. How far in advance do you plan out the various storylines (both major and the little sub-plots) of CSI and is it difficult to keep track of all the storylines/events that took place in CSI and make sure there aren't any contradictions?

During the first week or so that the writers assemble to start work on the new season, we discuss big character arcs and any season-long stories, such as this season's "Dr. Jekyll" storyline. Once we start on individual episodes, we'll come up with ideas about a month to three weeks before filming starts. Every episode idea is thoroughly discussed with the executive producers, Carol Mendelsohn and Naren Shankar. Usually, several writers will help "break" the story -- come up with an outline of the major events and twists in the plot. Then, a writer or writers will go off for about a week to actually write a script.

We have a "show bible" that lists the plots, characters, settings and forensics of every single CSI episode. Any time the question "have we done this before?" comes up, we check the bible. Also, we often watch prior episodes, sometimes just to get inspired to keep doing our best and not repeat ourselves. We also have an in-house system to coordinate story ideas so that we don't overlap with CSI: Miami or CSI: New York.
