As of tonight, midnight January 23rd, 2011, this community is officially closed. Mayfield is now located at Dreamwidth.

If you are planning to join us there on Dreamwidth, the deadline to fill out this post is tonight at midnight. All players who have failed to respond by tonight will be removed from the game tomorrow.
13 January 2012 @ 12:11 am
[Midnight in Mayfield is peaceful as always, the drones all snug in their beds. But midnight on Friday, January 13th is something else entirely. As the day changes, there's a loud, high pitched whining sound. It seems to emanate from somewhere downtown, and is loud enough to wake anyone anywhere in town, but there is no time to investigate. Thirty seconds after it begins, every single person in Mayfield, drone or not, will vanish.]

[ OOC: From January 13th until the game reopens on Dreamwidth, please do not post new entries. You may still post backdated entries on Livejournal until January 16th, but nothing taking place after the 12th.

Please don't forget, you only have until January 23rd to sign up to join us on DW!
12 January 2012 @ 04:43 pm
I wasn't planning on making a post for this, but I feel like I owe it to people to make this official rather than let her slip away during the move.

Basically, I never really felt like I had a firm voice for Bethany here. That, in turn, lead to negative motivation to post/finish threads with her. Apologies to her castmates/housemates--you all deserved a better, more active Bethany than what I provided. I'm sorry, and thank you all for being the awesome cast/house that you are. ♥

Even though it's practically a moot point, feel free to friend remove mage_twin or hoverclick.

I'll still be around with Ema Skye and Elsa Bloodstone (and, pending approval, another character that might work better than Bethany has).
12 January 2012 @ 01:59 am
Okay, for the DW move I'm afraid I'm going to be dropping The Joker for now. That Criminal Mind is not one I can keep up with for the time being, and I don't want to be someone squatting on a character like that without being able to provide proper comedy gold for him.

So, for the DW move The Joker will not be joining my muselist in Mayfield. I'll still be around with Arcueid and Yamame...but poor ol' Joker gets to go home after a short stint.

If my mind suddenly fires up for properly perfectly planned perpetrations I may bring him back. Otherwise, this whole LJ/DW split with some of my games has caused me to have to back off from someone who requires that much thought.

I'd say please friend remove laff_a_lympics but it's barely necessary.

Sorry to all castmates and those who were waiting in anticipation for his crimes! Hopefully I'll be in an RP state where I can bring him back sooner or later. I feel bad about this ;3;
11 January 2012 @ 12:26 pm
Alright, I need to take a look at things realistically. I've been on hiatus for long enough now to realize I'm not getting the drive for  this game back anytime soon, so it's better to just let Clark and Poison Ivy go for now at least until the LJ/DW move and things calm down. That way I'm leaving the characters free in case somebody else wanted to get a hand on them.

If that's not the case I'll do my best to come back in a few months because I love you, guys ;;

So yep...

Hey, hey Mayfield!

I'm sorry for being on unofficial slowatus during the holiday season--it was a busy time! Unfortunately, life is only going to get busier for me from here on out. With the allotted budget of my time now being very limited, and since I don't want to character squat the HERO during this time, I'm going to make an official drop. It was a hard decision to come to which was why it took me this long to announce it.

FRET NOT! This is not good-bye, merely a "see-you-all-later"! You all are so wonderful, you keep drawing me back.

If anyone wants to still contact me, though, just ping me up on plurk or AIM!

And with all that said, we'll come to the main point of this post.

friend remove undying_heroism or do that hover-click thing

Until next time!

Hi Mayfielders.

I think I need to say that I'm going to be dropping all current threads/backtagging etc.-- save for anything with Holland's notfamily for the sake of plot.  And this next week (and actually the past two weeks) are a bit of a slowatus for me.  I am feeling kind of overwhelmed trying to catch up and that combined with the whole LJ thing has really sapped my energy for rp.

So. . . yeah, just sorting out some rp things and moving stuff and also irl things. Work is crazy busy and I kind of went on vacation for a week and didn't say anything either so -- sorry guys.  

Please let me know if you have a thread you want to keep picking up though; I'm happy to oblige, to a point.

New year and everything, right. . .  :'|
08 January 2012 @ 11:43 pm
Very sorry to echo the previous drops, but I'm not really feeling it for the big games and it's not nice to hold places while I sit here and make people wait for tags.

I was kind of testing the water with LJ gaming and I sort of flailed and drowned. I tried really hard not to make water puns.  Terribly sorry, but I will be taking away RED Spy and Orphaner Dualscar.

If anyone still wants to play around on memes I'll be there, lurking.

Hey guys,
DL/Wighty here, back from the hiatus I announced a week or so back.  Lucas, Susan Sto Helit, Grimsley, and Beast Boy will be coming off hiatus.  Due to general holiday confusion, to the upcoming start of the new semester, and to the impending move, I will very likely be dropping some of my old tags.  I apologize for this in advance.  If there's anything in particular you'd like me to keep going, please do let me know here.

Thanks very much for bearing with me!
07 January 2012 @ 03:56 pm
SOB.  I hate to do this.  I've had so much fun here and have loved the CR I have but REALISTICALLY TAKING A LOOK AT MY NEW SEMESTER... I probably won't have much time to RP.  And I don't want to keep thread dropping people/hiatusing on and off.  If I can figure out a  better way to manage my time, I'll definitely be coming back to Mayfield with this dude FIRST THING.

Anyway.  Apologies and thank you for all the brilliant CR and shenanigans!  STAY AWESOME.  
07 January 2012 @ 08:56 am
So, taking myself off hiatus now. ^_^; Woo! Just this guy here affected.

Well, as anyone's noticed my activity with Miss Pauling has been dropping. She's my first character in Mayfield, and I really enjoyed RPing her very much. However, she hasn't been developing as a person as much as I want; now with the BLU Sniper leaving Mayfield she'll just pretty much fall back into her shell. It's also been pretty hard for me to build CR with her, given what a private person she is and what a huge fail of an RP player I am, so I'm afraid I'm going to be dropping her. I'm staying on with the RED Engineer, Tara and Figaro though, so you'll still be seeing me around Mayfield. But I think it's time to say so long, farewell, aufwiedersehen, good bye to The Assistant.

06 January 2012 @ 03:26 pm
It's been grand Mayfield! But since I'm not bringing BLU here over to Dreamwidth the time has come to send him home.

Crowley has already volunteered to take Rika, the black lab puppy, and he's willing his well stocked basement to house-mate Tara. Keep on being awesome Mayfield, and don't drink the milk.

05 January 2012 @ 08:14 pm
So in conjunction with the new move towards dreamwidth. I am going to be dropping Dempsey here as I was not going to have him move over to the other sight just yet. It was fun RPing with you all and I did enjoy my time in mayfield while it lasted!

But without further ado please friend remove <lj user=zombee_slayer>

If you plan on joining us at Mayfield RPG on Dreamwidth, you will need to first fill out this post, providing us with your character's journal on Dreamwidth, and then fill out this post on Dreamwidth.

All questions belong in the appropriate thread below.
05 January 2012 @ 06:31 pm
Based on the results of this poll, Mayfield is overwhelmingly in support of moving to Dreamwidth and becoming a community based game. Because the poll results are so clear and because apps open this evening, we have decided to announce our move.

This evening, applications will open here on Dreamwidth, with the expectation that all accepted characters will be accepted into the new community based game on that website.

While you may create your journals, join the new community, and use mayfield_ooc and junefield immediately, the IC communities will not open until January 16. You will continue to be able to bring your characters over to Dreamwidth until January 23, after which they will be considered ejected from the game and you will need to reapply. We will allow you to apply during the February application cycle. The only exception to the January 23rd date is if you posted a hiatus prior to this announcement intended to cover you through the 23rd, in which case you will be given until February 7 (after all hiatuses would have expired) before ejection. If you or someone you know has a compelling reason why they will be unable to meet the January 23rd deadline despite not posting a hiatus, send a PM to mayfield_mods explaining the situation ASAP.

We have compiled a description of how the transition will work and a list of Dreamwidth resources for you here.

We will also not be having an Activity Check for the month of January and the month of February due to the disruption caused by switching sites. To avoid ejection, all you need to do is join us on Dreamwidth before the January 23rd deadline.

To join us at Dreamwidth, all you need to do is fill out this form here and follow the instructions on this page on Dreamwidth. Once you've done that, you'll be invited to join Mayfield on Dreamwidth, and will be able to begin playing on January 16, at which point IC posting will close here on Mayfield!

Just as a note, we're not completely finished setting up the taken list over there, but that should be finished tonight. Thank you for your patience while we get the new community in order, and we hope to see you there.

We're also pleased to announce our three new assistant mods, Steve (puzzlerprince and goddamnhedgehog), Ru (coolbowtie and stealsluck), and Ena (kinships). Because of the move they've been tossed right into the thick of things, but they've been a really great help to us already. They'll be using the account ourlittlehelpers over on Dreamwidth while we move. So give them your congratulations on having to do our busy work.
05 January 2012 @ 01:08 am
Calling a hiatus for my characters until the whole DW/LJ thing gets worked out and the dust settles.
That's Deuce, Mom, Mindy, Oichi, and Teddie.

I'll probably still slowly tag any threads I already had going though...

Also dropping two of them.

Specifically Alice and Hitler, so...

Heading Anime Los Angeles this weekend, so I'm upgrading my (very) slowatus from the holidays to a hiatus for the weekend. I'll be back in full swing Monday or Tuesday as long as conplague doesn't set in.

So all three of my characters flowers_suck, all_ofthethings, & bestweaponever will be drone status for the weekend.

Have a good weekend everyone!
04 January 2012 @ 08:44 am
Please don't forget to vote! While polls will remain open until the 8th, because applications open on Friday, we will be making an announcement tomorrow about our plans if the results remain as clear as they currently are. If, after the announcement, the vote goes the other way, we'll reconsider, but if possible please get your votes in now.
03 January 2012 @ 11:36 am
And so I'm back! I'm sorry I've been quiet for so long. I think I needed that break. But now I am back and rarin' to go!
02 January 2012 @ 03:25 pm

i'll be bowing out for now. activity has always been a bit of an issue for me. you guys have all been great despite how scarce i might have been. i'm especially sorry to my wonderful and lovely niou, housemates and those i have had the pleasure of tagging with. but this isn't good bye for good! i hope i can return to you all soon when my life has become a lot less hectic. ;; i'm shooting for sometime in february, but until then, stay chill, my lovely mayfielders.

I'm really sorry, Mayfield, but I'm going to be dropping... Well, it's not Haruhi - but both Dawn and Minene are going to be permanently droned. It's not you guys at all - it's me; I haven't gotten any good ideas for posts with either of them a lot lately, and I feel like they're the bottom half, so I'll be taking them out! I'm especially sorry to my wonderfully awesome castmates! So please friend remove wonribbons</>I and friend remove cosplosion or do the hover remove! But I'll still be around with both Haruhi and Link!

I'm very sorry to have to do this, but I'm gonna have to let Bakura go. I had a lot of fun with him here this fall and he wound up lasting a lot longer than I'd expected him to; recently, it's just been very difficult trying to motivate myself to do more with him, and with the potential move to DreamWidth in mind, I don't think Bakura would make the cut.

I'll still be sticking around Mayfield with Shadow and the Riddler, though!

Please friend remove worstdmever. Apologies once again to his CR and housemates.
03 January 2012 @ 01:40 am
sobs this is the saddest thing for me so i will make it short.

i haven't been playing pinkie here nearly as much as i ought to be. she's the kind of character that should be all over the place, in everyone's business, making friends all up and down, and i've had an amazing time doing just that... when i've been able to. i started out really strong with her, and given that she was an impulse app, i'm glad i was able to make so much great CR. but my inability to really balance two characters here combined with a waning interest in her canon has meant that i haven't really been playing pinkie to her full potential for a while now.

with the game looking like it will be shifting off of livejournal, i can't really see myself shifting pinkie with it, which means that it is time to let her go.

thank you for all of the cute cr and everyone who put up with her special brand of cheer. i'm sorry my activity with her waned so much in the last couple of months!

First, I'm apologizing for the extremely slow tags I gave some of you guys last week. I was doing tags because I had a pretty okay internet connection but then I had to start sharing that connection with multiple people and, well, it couldn't really handle it. Then LJ wasn't properly loading and I'm not sure if it was the internet or the updates.

But I'm back from Alaska now and I'll be picking up tags. I'll understand if anyone wants to drop these old tags though in favor of a fresh start this year though.
01 January 2012 @ 09:22 pm
Hi all!

I have been pretty slow actually nonexistent these last few weeks because of exams and travel. I have decided that for my own rl reasons, it would be in my best interest to take a break from RP through the rest of my winter break. That means I won't be back to tags until around January 17th (my birthday!) when the semester starts again. I'll try and keep up on what's going on via plurk.

This will impact equal_shots and snipingmissy. Both Kid and Riza will be on autopilot, not droned.

Happy holidays, guys (even though I'm late!)
01 January 2012 @ 04:09 pm
Hey guys. It's Kim. No I'm not dropping Aradia, but I will be going on Hiatus until Jan 9th. I'll be busy with con stuff + an actual con, so I rather not stress myself with RPing. LJ has been kind of killing my motivation, but I will be replying to what I already have on my plate. It would be rude of me not to!

However, I am dropping a character. I just can't get him into the game anymore. He's had a good run in which I dropped and brought him back. He's made some close CR, but it's time to say goodbye with him. He's just not clicking anymore and I've been dragging my feet with him for months now, I think. I'm dropping Dick Grayson.

I love the cast and I hope they keep rocking, but this darling is getting droned permanently.

friend remove notasidedick

or do the hoverclick thing notasidedick

Hiatus will affect Aradia Megido, Last Order, and Neophyte Redglare. All of them will be droned. Casts have god mod rights to any of my droned characters if they want, but lmfao who wants to deal with drones.

[As it does on every New Years' Eve, the television buzzes to life as the clock strikes midnight. Once again, the same video is played:

This is not a holiday. Not in the sense of the others; Christmas, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, all holidays whose core concepts endure even in the endless cycle in which Mayfield exists.

But New Year's Eve is meant to mark the passage of time, to end one year and begin another. Time holds no sway in this world; there is no such thing as "old" or "new". There is no end, and if there was ever a beginning it has been long forgotten. Mayfield is, was, and will be; it is eternal, endlessly feeding upon itself, a snake devouring its own tail. In Mayfield, things don't change.

...or at least, they're not supposed to.

Somewhere, in a very dark room, in a place that is very close and very far away, a man watches a number flash on a screen:
