My fellow 9 Timeline players and I were wondering if anyone's still hanging on to this community. Most of the timelines seem to have stopped. It's a pity; the place was great while it lasted. But if there's anybody left who hasn't departed for greener pastures or darker vortexes, any miscellaneous character whose player doesn't feel like giving up the game, this post is for you.
In lieu of separate timelines for each era, I propose...
..the Eye of Orion.
It's a lovely little planet orbiting an unspecified star in the Orion constellation. Beautiful. Peaceful. Constant smell of ozone. The Doctor goes there all the time.
He should have expected that at some point he'd inevitably run into himself.
Here's how it goes. Your character has landed on the Eye of Orion. Perhaps he/she/it was shanghaied there, or hitched a ride, or was whirled up in the clutches of a freak time storm. Perhaps they're resting up from a grueling adventure, or looking for a way to get back in touch with their Doctors, or casing the area for a possible takeover, or don't know why they're there at all. But whatever the cause, chance has rolled her fuzzy dice and the Eye of Orion is about to get uncommonly crowded.
Once you're there, anything can happen. Characters should ideally have to stay on the planet for three days or so, to keep things interesting. Doctors can swap companions. Companions can get lost in the mist. Everyone can have a cookout and sleep under the stars, or obsess about temporal paradoxes and the Blinovitch Limitation Effect, or huddle in the ruins and throw rocks at the villains.
Since we're all busy people, this event will have definite limits: a sign-up, a starting date, and a four-day gamespan, at the end of which everyone who wants to can fold up their tents, wrap up their character arcs, and steal away without the uncomfortable feeling of leaving an unfinished plot. If you're interested, please respond by June 20th to let us know you're here! Leave a comment with your lj name, your characters' identities, and the reason they're on the Eye. If we get five more players by then, an Eye of Orion Timeline post will appear on rpgwho. If not, no hard feelings, and we'll see you around the internet.

Harry Sullivan: hsullivan (kishnevi)
Actually, Harry's real life persona got incredibly busy and then sick and then busy again, and by the time he could check back in, found the comm to be, shall we say, dormant. However, gentleman that he is, he will not dream of leaving Miss LeCora to her fate. As soon as he can write up something decent--hopefully tomorrow evening.
And he'll be glad to appear in the Eye of Orion. [main account islj user="kishnevi")
