Harry Potter WW-Team Good Wins, Voldemort is defeated

There are worse ways to spend the time, but not many.

Postby iambic » Sun Nov 29, 2015 12:58 am

yeah, but two of the cabals can be effectively certain all members are pulling together

one of them can be absolutely certain all members are not pulling together

that... affects how they function

the game was fun as hell, especially after I'd painted myself into a corner before roles even got sent out, but good always wins in this Potterverse

LOL always when I'm not around. You guys. :lol:

I didn't get to duel anybody :cry:



EPILOGUE

Vanian H. Sensibleus awoke with a start and discovered he could not move, as though he were confined in a box, causing him roughly 1.4 seconds of panic before remembering he had replaced his regular bed with a coffin several weeks prior, because it had amused him. Clambering out of bed he quickly grabbed his clothes and his wand and almost left home in too much of a rush to note the messenger owl waiting patiently [on the windowsill] for him to arise, until it helpfully hooted at him. With a somewhat sheepish smile he turned around and checked in with it.


Vanian,

We Won, if you care. Take the day off.

Signed,
Amaryllis Wix
your boss [remember me?]

P.S. In fact, take infinity off. You're fired.


Not the best news, but Vanian would just have to console himself with the knowledge that he, and most of his newfound friends, were still alive. Wars Of Survival had a way of calibrating one's perspective. More time for the band, anyway. Maybe he would retire from professional wizardry and blend in with the muggles full time, wouldn't that be a lark? They had a certain charm. As did the low stress of being a big fish in a small pond.

As he walked past the Ministry building he started to turn up the steps to the main door before realizing it was no longer necessary. No more meetings to democratically condemn traitors would be held, and without them no more heated debates would devolve into seemingly unending chains of Wand Duels. Vanian would hardly miss them. It had been passingly amusing at the start, but yesterday he had been unable to even feign ghoulish glee in another doomed attempt to become King Of The Mountain and a one-man majority unto one's self. But then, when you had the biggest wand in Hogwarts [18 Inches Of Yew Wood Thank You Very Much] you didn't feel as much need to prove its potency.

Most wizards Vanian passed, and who passed him, were hooting and hollering, save for one dour looking Slytherin whose name escaped him at the moment. Something with an S, if he had to hazard a guess. He was muttering something about a lily. Or someone named Lily. Probably a casualty of the now-concluded war. Poor man. But Vanian quickly forgot all about him when he was almost knocked down by Emmanuel Selwyn and Wendy Oiseau as they ran down the Ministry steps, hand in hand and at arms length, their limbs making a bar of flesh which was responsible for depositing him on his backside. They apologized in unison, but Vanian waved them on, laughing and shaking his head. Why be upset? Their front line work had been indispensable in the past week, and he probably owed them his life. Vanian had chipped in as much as he dared, even reached out to the two of them separately, clandestinely sharing observations and conjectures.

"Have fun, you two!" he shouted, winking. Being able to talk with them openly, even briefly, was a welcome change from the brief, paranoid, secret exchanges on which they'd all gambled their lives.

An hour later, he would think of them again, at the pub, and words came to him quicker than usual.

That night, his band would have a new song.




As is hopefully evidenced by the fact that I insist on still playing after the game is over, I had a ball and I never tire of playing Werewolf with you guys. Thanks to Catullus, Snatch, and Palmer for putting this together and running it for us.

gotta admit this post blew my mind a bit

i don't remember hey look being mentioned once in the cabal


I floated him as a possibility in SECRET BACKCHANNELS because he was laying so low yet making sure to do just enough to stay active, but it was just an unfounded hunch on my part [laying low like that after all is also smart Seer play], and since I wasn't really in the cabal I have no idea if my contact thought it was worth passing along or not. Apparently not.

adamtrask, i'm sorry i got super paranoid about you. it was completely unfounded, just one of those things that's like I'VE CONFIDED SO MUCH OH MY GOD

although it was only like two days ago that this happened. i was like 99% sure you were good for the majority of the game.

luke was on board with the idea of you being evil for like a second and then got over it but was kind enough to continue indulge my paranoia

and luke and lordofdiapers for, like, telling me anything at all and letting me help and helping me

and duke for being rad and good at this

and the mods and dumbledore for letting me yell at them

Paranoia and the indulgence thereof is what this game is all about. :)

And I'm happy to hear you talking about Next Game already. Favorite thing to hear from someone who's just played with us for the first time.

this is super nerdy but

i got to work with the order of the phoenix which is something i've wanted since 2003 but never imagined would happen because, like, well, my delusions are limited to bradley cooper tbh

so that rules (not the bradley cooper thing)

the cabals joined without my interference (i think duke was the driving force) but working constructively together did not appear to be in the cards. duke and i tried really hard to keep the peace but were unsuccessful. and it wasn't anything terrible it was just that the order and mwpp were operating differently and nobody wanted to change how they ran things

which in retrospect is actually amazing and one of my favorite things for reasons i can't explain, but at the time it was pretty frustrating because BOYS

and then what do you know, differences were finally put aside, we spent the better part of an entire day working together with only minor arguments, and the death eaters imploded

again, the death eaters didn't implode. stakeout just won this game in very short order and we were incapable of shaking that. our best chance for a while was that the sleigh/stakeout thing could result in stakeout being discredited when sleigh was killed, but that didn't happen and basically no death eaters were backchanneling enough to push for that scenario, or to take advantage of it if it did come to pass

my hope for a while there was that I'd be able to hang out with the good cabal long enough to at least be the last death eater, and the fact that some good guys (sleigh, narc blossom, mmmmaybe Luke) either trusted me or were at least willing to entertain me gave me a little hope, but with the exception of mon and tues I've been basically afk for 9 days now and I think it woulda taken more time

basically I think team good played a good game and stakeout in particular is really good at this game (tho, as greasefire said, makes it less fun to play). but the mvp was death eater inactivity
