I’ve been eyeing this community for awhile and it looks like it’s a lot of fun. While I am not female, I am what the rules would identify as “queer”.
Anyway, my question is mainly about Hal as I thought of auditioning for him. I know that you guys had one for the longest time and they seemed to have quit about three weeks ago. Is there anything about that Hal that I should keep in mind? I know there had been a lot of character development while they were here. Especially with Kyle and Ollie. If I audition for Hal, I’m not required to pick up where they left off, right? They can basically… pick Hal up from a different point in time? (i.e. somewhere in Brightest Day would be okay as it’s not yet New 52?)
Thanks for taking your time to answer.
Oh good heavens, I found this in the inbox today and while I thought I had answered it, I believe it came at a time when we were getting some similar questions, so I probably missed this in the shuffle! For which I apologize profusely.
To answer your questions in a broad, game policy fashion: when players leave the game, we do our best to scrub the canon that their characters created while with the Justice Lounge. New players who want to pick up those characters get to start afresh, as far as interaction with the game goes (your personal adherence to comics canon is a different thing).
You get to play YOUR version of the character you want, and nobody else’s version is imposed on you, never fear!
Again, I’m SUPER sorry that I missed answering this in a more timely fashion, and if you’re still interested, I hope you check us out!

Hello Loungers! Please unfollow this character’s tumblr, as the player is no longer in the game:
JUSTICE LOUNGE presents: WEEKEND OF LOVE/HATE!
What - this event (one of hopefully many!) will focus on the love and/or the hate your character feels. These extreme feelings can be directed towards other characters in the game, NPCs in your character’s life, pets, places, food, ideas, things, etc. All your character needs to do is write out messages (love or hate) to someone/something.
When - this whole weekend!
Where - on your character’s tumblr!
How - simply write out a short message (eg: a text, an email, a forum message, a thought said ‘out loud’, a parchment letter written with quill pen by candlelight and sealed in wax delivered by the Pony Express, etc) and post it on your character’s tumblr. Post as many as you like. All posts are considered ‘open rp’, so other characters are free to interact with your messages.
Please tag all posts with: lovehate message
Why - These love/hate messages can be a rant or a rave about anything and anyone. If it’s directed towards another character in-game, all the better! Let your character be as direct or as mysterious as they want! Make a love or a hate post about your chara’s crushes, desires, pet peeves. Funny or serious, grumpy or gushy, it’s all good. Get creative and have fun with it!
notice: trigger warnings and tagging posts
Hello! The last time we went over this was ages ago, so it’s a good time for a refresher (for your mods’ sakes as well)!
Please try to post trigger warnings for the following content: sexual assault, language (racist, sexist, etc.), abuse, gore, extreme violence.
At what point does a ‘mention’ of violence/abuse/etc. need a trigger warning? When it becomes a description, either through the context or the details included about the violence/abuse/etc. itself. A mention of it with no follow-up details doesn’t require a warning.
You are absolutely welcome to include more warnings or more descriptive warnings, but try to use these standard tags (in the given format, which tumblr saviour catches better) first and foremost so that they are clear to all Lounge members!
- sexual assault tw
- language tw
- abuse tw
- extreme violence tw
- gore tw
Please choose some unique tags for your face claim posts and your comic panel posts (and whatever other types you’d like) and make a post in your blog listing them all, so that people who don’t want to see photos or be spoiled by comic panels can tumblr saviour them!
Make sure that if you reblog photos/scans, you tag them accordingly and consistently!
If anybody has specific requests for triggers they’d like to be warned for, or types of posts they’d like people to come up with unique tags for, just send us an ask or reply to this post and we’ll get right on it. :)
Cheers, maggie and lori

Hello Loungers! Please unfollow this tumblr, as its player has released it due to the new ‘two-main-characters-maximum’ policy:
CHATZY EVENT: THESE DARK FACETS
Plot wrap-up! Your characters can jump into the fray and help good triumph over evil, with a little help from your friends. Kids and their entities! Light versus dark! Surprise aliens! LOTS OF PRETTY COLORS!!!!
When: Weekend of January 25/26
Where: chatzy! (contact us for URL and/or password)
Who: who else? all your characters!
Q:that's all I really wanted to know! I guess it's all about communication between those affected, though I feel I've sufficiently reviewed people's headcanons and made sure I can adjust to the changes they've made or omissions they've opted for. one more thing: i see the limit to app is two characters per player, so i was wondering if there is a recommended waiting period between apping a second character after your first one?
Very glad I was able to give the pertinent info!
As for having two characters, there’s no set waiting period, really. All we look at is how well you’ve integrated your first character into the game, as well as your activity. If it seems like you’re doing stuff with your first character on tumblr/chatzy, then odds are good that you can have another!
Q:hi! i was thinking of applying, but i wanted to know about congruence and coordination in the whole death/rebirth thing? for example, let's say i wanted to apply Jade and explore her character outside of what limited time she got in the original DCU after she was brought back to life? her being dead is a big part of kyle's backstory. would taking her from a later time than other characters are taken interfere? same goes for other characters like connor hawke; does it interfere with ollie's age?
When it comes to comics canon, we know it can be a pretty tangled-up situation to address. And with RP in particular, there’s parts of canon we excise and parts we keep (for example, I’ve nixed Ollie’s marriage with Dinah and Cry for Justice and him being mayor and all that) according to what interests us.
So really, if you wanted to app Jade or Connor, the only thing you’d have to do is chat with the players of whatever characters are part of their canons just so you’re not working at cross-purposes. Unless it’s a REALLY big aspect of the character currently being played, all of the Lounge members are very good and laid-back about compromise and working out a shared story and back history. And even if there’s a certain point that doesn’t seem to jive at first, there’s creative ways around everything!!
I hope that’s answered your question adequately! If there’s still something you’d like clarification or elaboration on, please do feel free to inquire further. :)
