Okay, so in the same vein as sv_journals
, we're going to get together and write out journals of the characters from my Downfall Series
. If you haven't read it, no worries. We're not following the storyline or anything - we're starting from the beginning and seeing where the characters take us. Who knows? Maybe Lex will take Hudson where she can stick her lies. And she can tell him she isn't his momma.
Or maybe not. :P
We already have a few characters taken, though there are plenty who need adopting! If you see an unclaimed character you would like to take control of, please let me know in the comments! The list is as follows:
Hudson Clark Kent - written by aelora
... LJ User cosmosgirl
Lex Luthor - written by icalynn
... LJ User llson
Lana Lang - written by joanne_c
... LJ User beyond_princess
Chloe Sullivan - written by medie
Lionel Luthor - written by kelex
... LJ User lionel_p_luthor
Martha Kent - written by supesfan88
... LJ User smallvillemom
Jonathan Kent - written by laurelqueen
... LJ User kentagricultureNote: Some may argue that Jonathan wouldn't have a journal, and wouldn't go near a computer. I would have to disagree. While I don't see him as the type to sit down and write out emails or spend hours in front of the monitor or, hell, even know how to turn it on without help, I don't believe he would ever be a complete PC-phobe. He did go to college, he was a young man during the electronic age, and he probably played a few video games as well. Between Hudson and Martha, I'm sure they've both shown him the great deals he can find on farm equipment through the net, as well as articles on new farming techniques. I'm sure there's a huge organic farming community out there, and all of the farmers I know out here in the Midwest are not ignorant of the assistance the internet can provide. That said, I doubt he would post all too often, nor would those posts be particularly long. This is the character for the person who doesn't believe they would have time to participate much.

- please create your character's journals and provide the link for me here in the comments so that I can add them.
Treat your character's LJ as a real LJ. They probably wouldn't give out the names of friends, family, unless it was in a private or friends only post. Don't use Smallville icons. Try to relate to your character and make the journal reflect who they are. You are welcome to post as much as you believe your character would do so. I would like to have a minimum of at least one post per week, though, so that the journals don't become stagnant and the storyline moves onward. If anyone is available to occasionally get on AIM and discuss plotlines, please add me (miss aelora).
You are free to make private posts, flocked posts and filtered posts. Just make certain to acknowledge them so that readers know whether or not they can reply. Use the following format:[private post - please comment at downfallverse][friends locked post - others please comment at downfallverse][filtered post to (Lex, Lana, Chloe) - others please comment at downfallverse]
It's not necessary for our characters to friend everyone at once. Some of them may never friend each other. Obviously, Chloe, Pete and Hudson would friend each other for fun. Lana would be included once they became friends. It will probably take Hudson some snooping to find out Lex has an LJ. And if Martha and Jonathan ever friended Hudson, it would be to keep an eye on her if nothing else! :P Lionel and Lex would be the same - totally keeping an eye on each other. I would suggest we each friend all of the characters as ourselves, just to keep track of the story.Additional Characters
- I think having added original characters could be a lot of fun and add a further dimension to the story. If there is someone you feel should be added, please comment in this post and we can discuss it. It can be an Original Character of yours or someone from the DC universe. If you would like to have more than one character, you are welcome to do so, but please do not use your two characters to attempt to start unneeded dramas. I'm sure we'll have enough of that as it is. :P Also, if I feel one character is being neglected for the other, I may ask you to give one up.Readers
- Please feel free to friend the characters and get to know them. Do not, however, use Smallville-related icons in your posts, just to keep the illusion going.Storyline
- We will begin with the pilot, and continue on from there, following the episodes until our storyline and characters decide to do otherwise. This is definitely a perfect way to make many of those storylines that just didn't make a lick of sense finally work! If you feel your character shouldn't have done something or reacted in a way they wouldn't have, then change it. Also, we will be covering holidays, vacations, summer breaks, etc, just to have a little more fun with their normal, everyday lives. This thing could go on for a long time, just to warn you. I'm not saying every day will be according to real time, but a lot of them should be.
If you have any questions, ask them here. This community is for us to discuss how everything is going and receive feedback from our readers.icalynn
was kind enough to buy some time for this community. Anyone up for creating a cool design for us???
