midsummer, community event.

[personal profile] ex_husband711 2012-05-22 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
In Modern Sweden: Midsummer's Eve and Midsummer's Day are celebrated on the Friday and Saturday between 19 June and 26 June. It's a good excuse to get drunk and is very wonderful for those a part of a community to get together and celebrate the beginning of Summer with dance, music, and a great feast.

The main celebrations take place on the Friday, and the traditional events include raising and dancing around a huge maypole. Before the maypole is raised, greens and flowers are collected and used to cover the entire pole. Many people gather around and dance in a circle around the pole, dancing to traditional music (and even wearing traditional folk costumes).

In addition, many wear crowns made of wild springs and wildflowers on their heads. The year's first potatoes, Soused herring, chives, sour cream, beer, snaps and the first strawberries of the season are on the menu. Drinking songs are also important at this feast, and many drink heavily.

Traditionally, young people pick bouquets of seven or nine different flowers and put them under their pillow in the hope of dreaming about their future spouse.

Midsummer is celebrated not just in Sweden, but in many other countries as well, so the event doesn't necessarily have to be the Swedish way of celebrating. It's just the one I had in mind.

Two things:

1) Little League baseball team coached by Steve Rogers. I don't think this will be an issue but just wanted to make sure before doing anything more than talking about it!

2) Can we have a school event that's like a take home project like "Care for your egg for one week" or something to that effect?

Tanabata, July 7

[personal profile] castofthought 2012-06-14 04:58 pm (UTC)(link)
So there's a noticeable Japanese population at HH. Tanabata is a Japanese festival held on the 7th of July celebrating the two literally star-crossed lovers getting the chance to meet once every year. There's a tradition that has people write wishes on slips of paper and hang them up on bamboo leaves. During the night or the next day, the bamboo trees are either burned or set afloat down a river. Here's a Generic wiki link explaining more! A have a picture story of the legend:
-The weaver and the cow herder live on the opposite sides of the Milkyway.
-One day they meet and fall in ~love~.
-Except the weaver's father notices that the two are neglecting their duties for their love and so separates the two.
-Thankfully, their love is strong enough so that they can wait...
-...where once every year they are allowed to reunite! It helps that they're immortal, so the wait isn't that bad for them.

Maybe this happening in HH would could be more of a optional community gathering and bonfire. The bamboo tree could be in the middle of the town square for everyone, and maybe some of the wishes will be answered if the Landlord wants. Besides the "I wanna go home boo hoo", I mean.

Christmas at the lake

[personal profile] sauna 2012-09-03 11:03 pm (UTC)(link)
It's never too early to think about Christmas, shush.

Since Finland is "Santa" in canon, I figure he'd want to help spread some holiday cheer. My idea is for him and the other Nordics/nations to throw a party either at the lake resort or another venue. I'm still fuzzy on details, but it wouldn't be a party without gift-giving and mistletoes!

There could also be a live internet broadcast of the party, much like the one during Christmas 2010 Bloodbath (with less naked cat aliens). I'm open to any more ideas!

Late for September but hopefully not too late?

[personal profile] castofthought 2012-09-07 05:34 am (UTC)(link)
An event for September: SO DID YOU KNOW THAT SEPTEMBER IS BABY SAFETY MONTH?? And the thrid week of september is also Child Care Choices week. So basically a comm wide event (for those who wish to participate) would be somewhere along the lines of maybe:
a) Parents get an extra NPC baby to keep and care for. Delivered to the front of everyone's doorstep by actual storks no less with a little message attached saying that this is their new child they must take care of. Funnily enough, it might actually resemble one (or two) of the parents! ~Surprise~! It cries, it smiles, it poops, and all that jazz. It is their responsibility! (But if anything untimely should happen to it or if it is outright neglected the baby ~magically~ disappears.) Parents that do a good job of taking care of it by the end of the month get some sort of reward, maybe?
b) For the kids, instead of a live baby they get a giant egg. All they have to do is make sure it doesn't crack. Plus a message that they get something good at the end of taking care of it for a week (which might lead to shenanigans like EGG WARS and stuff). Aaaand, idk what would be fun is that the giant egg hatches into something of the kid's liking at the end?

ETA: Also for another idea if the above isn't okay or whatever, September 16th is National Stepfamily Day! A comm wide event celebrating the families can be held (liiike a mingle event because also a bunch of new people would be here too so that would be beneficial). Or maybe the Lessor could grant each/some family something for being the good people of HH? (Like a new car, or an ability back, or an addition to their house or something.)

The baby event is actually planned out for this month! I think I've talked about it on my plurk several times and it's listed on the calendar (vaguely, as per most events). But it's set out for the most part, but some of the ideas will be taken into consideration!

October haunting event, community wide

[personal profile] castofthought 2012-09-09 08:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Sooo like lots of holidays, houses get decked out. In many suburban neighborhoods, Halloween is no exception. Plus everyone knows that October is a trickster's month of choice.  This idea for an event? Haunted lawn ornaments! Starting Oct 1 residents will find their lawn and house decorated by one or more items/themes  (think: jackolantern, black cat, clowns, ghosts, skeletons, spiders, witches, zombies, mummies, pirates, etc.). By day they appear like anything you'd buy a Party City- plastic, cheap, fake blood, and bringing a more humorous touch to the decorations rather than anything outright horrifying. But during the night (or one night a week or however frequent it would be ) THEY COME ALIIIIIIIIVE to scare, haunt, possess, and/or prank the house and residents they're at.  

 Conversely, the haunting builds up over time like in Paranormal Activity or Silent Hill 4. So say you have a cat on your lawn. During the first week you might notice mewing here and there. Then you'd hear the soft walk of a cat. By week three there will be long scratch-like marks on the interior of the house, but especially on couches and bed posts. Finally, the haunting would manifest at the end of the month AND OMG IT'S A WERECAT LET'S GTFO OF THIS HOUSE.

How intense/tame the scaring/haunting will be or if everything is a simple prank with an added catch at the end would  be dependent on the players themselves or the Landlord, I suppose. Naturally, any damage caused by the haunting would reverse itself by December 1.

Fall Fundraiser!

[personal profile] sleepwalked 2012-09-29 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, in my area, it's kind of an annual tradition to pick one charity/cause and do a month-long fundraiser. I think that would be really cool to implement into our lovely little gated community!

Overall, there can be one set goal, like 1,000$ and it's up to the community to achieve it or not!

How I think it would go down is people post with a good/service: tutoring, car washes, selling cookies, charity sports events, and people can leave a total amount in their subject line for attending and/or buying. The post creator can then tally their earnings and post it!

Maybe having a post by Lessor with the total that people may comment on with their donations, just to keep track.

I mean, this is all highly technical but even a looser-based event would be absolutely fun, I think! And it could help "tie" the community together IC and OOC.

Worst case scenario, it can be a player-ran mini event? :3

New Years event?

[personal profile] findsitfunny 2012-12-24 10:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Possible New Years event? As in, a giant party/banquet for everyone!! People are given a classy new party outfit to wear. Plus everyone suddenly has a new years top hat on like this or something. A giant fireplace to write and toss News Years' resolution into will be there at the party.

Suddenly, at about an hour to midnight, everyone 18 and older is SUDDENLY TIPSY as if they had too much champagne beforehand. It doesn't even matter if you can't get drunk. You just ARE. Inhibitions are lost, everything seems warmer than it is, and drunken shenanigans are bound to happen. Start celebrating the New Years, but you better not drive home.

Meanwhile, everyone younger is given streamers or poppers or silly string to make a mess of things and possibly annoy people. Whatever floats their boat. Also confetti. You might be finding it in the oddest of places like your car, your pantry, your underwear drawer... and it might be around for the next week.

May 5th in Japan is Children's Day, so on that day (or the week for it) all the adults in HH age down to kids and all the kids age up into adults. Mayhem ensues.

crossdressing festival & auction

[personal profile] karlsefni 2013-10-21 07:17 am (UTC)(link)
what it says on the tin! a festival (new years would be the closest!) and in my mind's eye it would be japanese-styled, but that's not really the important part.

the important part is that everyone is prompted to crossdress. eeeeveryone. boys wear dresses and high heels and girls wear suits and genderfluid characters wear the opposite of what they usually wear (if they wear everything all the time: wear nothing) (no don't actually do that) (but actually do) and there's a beauty contest in the end, and/or an auction! characters in the community get their own "beauty team", who pretty them up (crossdressing, of course) and then a row of judges determine which character is the most beautiful. there are several prizes - first, second, third, and landlord's pick.

as for the auction, people are put in teams and have three(more/less) representatives to dress up and "sell" - everyone bets tokens to buy a character's services! family friendly services. probably. comm-friendly services, with an expiration date of one week(/day/whatever your heart so chooses) and basic human rights to be sternly kept (unless with mutual mun permission between buyer and representative). that sounds really bad BUT BASICALLY just things like "ok now you have to clean my toilet for a week" or "COOK ME A DELICIOUS BENTO BOX FOR ME TO TAKE TO WORK FOR A WEEK" or "HOST A PARTY IN MY HONOR", stuff like that!

the auction is, in itself, a contest, too - with three(more/less) rounds, teams can try to reach the "winning" criteria - either successfully winning the most auctions, or getting the most tokens, successfully selling the highest bid, whatever the mods may choose! and at the end, these select teams who win these criteria will get a prize! (you could worm a popularity contest in this, too - every round characters individually choose the best dressed character up for auction!)

Is it alright if Yana and I do an IC Secret Santa (through Miu and Yozora)? People sign up, we RNG exchanges, and there's a log for gift exchange. I figured I'd ask just in case someone usually does it/it'd conflict with other things somehow.

Summer event suggestion?

[personal profile] prosecutory 2014-01-26 06:41 am (UTC)(link)
An event for summer - HH turns into a massive water park. Slides, lazy rivers, pools, etc. are everywhere. Streets and roads are submerged and everyone has to wade/swim/float on inner tubes and stuff to get around, and the cars could become boats in case people need faster transportation. Everyone's clothes are turned into swimwear for extra hilarity.

YEAH UH that's pretty much it ahahaha

So for that, would it be better to post about it on the ooc comm first or should I just make a mingle in the log comm?

Also, he wants to arrange an ice sculpting contest at the ice rink, and I was thinking of posting about it at the ooc comm next month or so, could he rope either the landlord and/or tessa to take part as judges?

Got it! I'm working on ooc info about it right now, and if you don't mind (since the February calendar isn't up yet) I wanted to put it between the 3rd and the 4th, for extra inconvenience for the residents.

Just the type of judgment that is Yukihina's favorite tbh.

I don't want things to get in the way with anything you might have in store so I thought I'd ask if it would be alright to host the competition at the end of the month, so people apping this round can participate if they want to as well. Like on the 29th?

april fools prankings for april event

[personal profile] basesteal 2016-03-16 07:51 pm (UTC)(link)
While we're so close to endgame, April is around the corner and that means April Fools...

Would it be possible to squeeze in an April Fools event if there isn't one already?

Players can oocly sign up if they want their dudes to be the one pulling pranks and/or getting pranked and then get RNGed to determine who the pranksters will prank on...

I am willing to set this all up if the event's not already planned out even if it's last-minute...! o/
