Happy Hunger Games

And may the odds be ever in your favor.

BAM. Who's got two thumbs and is District Four's first member? :D FINNICK I'M COMING FOR YOU.

It's completely new but it sounds pretty promising, based on the profile info, because it's not just about sorting or anything-- of all the fandoms, I'd say THG is probably one that's ridiculously appropriate for a landcomm. There will be "games" that'll have one volunteer and one drawn tribute from each district competing. It'll operate like a LIMS thing, and the Sorting is different because it plays on the whole idea that the Capitol is in control all the time. They make the final decisions but District mayors can try to bribe them with coin earned from activities. IDK IT JUST SOUNDS SUPER INTERESTING OKAY?

But there aren't a lot of people yet, so it's not quite where it could be for the concept to work, I don't think. So you should consider joining (and tell them I sent you, there's no ~referral program yet but there could be!) and sign right up especially if you're into The Hunger Games.

Honestly I manifest fandom by reading or writing fic for it, lol. I'm not even really involved in THG fandom besides this comm, and for this particular one I expect there'll be ~contests~ of the graphic and written nature that revolve around THG? You get "sorted" into a sub-group and then it's like a competition.

YOU KNOW HOCKEY COULD PROBABLY USE A LANDCOMM. There can be seasons and pseudo-champions at the end based on how many points were earned per ~team~ lol idek.

oh man this sounds like FUN. geez how would a hockey version even work. would you just join a team or would you have to be assigned one? WHAT IF THERE WERE, LIKE, INVENTED TEAMS. Like, a non-NHL league with like 10 teams that were entirely made up. hmmmmmmm

I think it could be fun having them be related to actualfax teams but 32 teams is A LOT SO MAYBE it can be an original six and then the more members you have you can choose to ~expand~ and the mods of each team can be GMs or something. Some comms get assigned automatically by the higher ups, some have applicants get sorted by the members. I bet you can assign people and then they can ask to be traded out OH MY GOD YOU CAN TRADE MEMBERS AND SIGN THEM TO FREE AGENCY USING COINS OR SOMETHING. The activities/contests can be, IDK, hockey based somehow, I know not everyone likes RPF so maybe it'll be "WRITE A DRABBLE OF BETTMAN'S FIRST DAY AS COMMISSIONER" or "WALLPAPER OF YOUR FAVORITE TEAM" or something like that and omg there can be a Bettman and a Shanahan mod and they'll be the people who are responsible for disciplining dramamongers and THERE CAN BE VIRTUAL HOCKEY GAMES. LIKE HOW [ profile] hogwartsishome DID QUIDDITCH WHERE IT'S KIND OF MORE LIKE A TRIVIA CONTEST THAN ANYTHING ELSE AND PEOPLE HAD A HARD TIME GETTING TOGETHER FOR THE SAME TIME BUT IT WAS HYSTERICAL.

I should stop, my dork is showing.

omg amazing I love the original 6 and expansion idea, like. you have to accumulate a certain amount of points to become a GM and bring in your team, asdjfhdjs.

It does look super interesting!!! However I don't know my MBTI type although I am super interested in it, and I have NO CLUE what an "Alignment" is (bad Claw, hey?)

Haha, I didn't either. I think the sorting app had links to tests that you can take so you can find out where you lie, at least they did when I filled out the app. I still don't know what my MBTI type is since I think it's been different every time I take the test. :| My "Alignment" test has given me True Neutral and Lawful Evil whoops. :|

I took it and came out INTJ which is astounding because it's the same result I remember getting when I was a teenager and, oddly, I thought I'd changed since then, like some traits of my personality really are different. But apparently my core is still the same.
I came out Lawful Good which sounds almost like an insult, but I'm only 5% away from True Neutral and Chaotic Evil, which are tied. I'm extremely confused what that whole test was supposed to prove, actually.

Have you taken the real MBTI or just online versions? The reason it might be different is because on the real test, you can get an X for one of the letters, meaning you're perfectly even between the two, but a lot of online tests don't take that into account. You might just want to go through the types you've gotten on this site ( and see if you can figure out which one fits you best (this ( might help as well, as personally, ISTJ doesn't sound completely like me, but the letters all fit me). I have an idea which one you might be, but I dunno you in real life, so it's a bit harder to judge certain letters.

I also got Lawfully Evil, but I dunno what the hell that means?

Just online stuff -- I think MBTI is paid? I'll have to look tomorrow, and maybe take the test again too-- TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK I AM! I do think online and real life personalities don't always match--I certainly feel more outgoing online than in real life, for instance, but I'd be interested to know. :P

This is what Wikipedia said:

Characters of this alignment see a well-ordered system as being easier to exploit, and show a combination of desirable and undesirable traits; while they usually obey their superiors and keep their word, they care nothing for the rights and freedoms of other individuals and are not averse to twisting the rules to work in their favor. Examples of this alignment include tyrants, devils, undiscriminating mercenary types who have a strict code of conduct, and loyal soldiers who enjoy the act of killing.

Like Lawful Good Paladins, Lawful Evil characters may sometimes find themselves faced with the dilemma of whether to obey law or evil when the two conflict. However, their issues with Law versus Evil are more concerned with "Will I get caught?" versus "How does this benefit me?"

I had no idea the alignments were based on Dungeons & Dragons. :|

Yeah, the real one is paid. I took it in high school and we studied all about it for a few weeks, so I know it pretty well and can figure out my friends' types. I somehow seem to attract INFPs and as an ISTJ, they drive me crazy!!

As for you, I think you're an INTJ. The I and J I'm pretty sure about, they're the easiest to tell about someone. I see a good bit of F, but I think you're more of a T. There's also the fact that you're in Ravenclaw and I think most Claws would be T's. N/S is the hardest difference to determine on someone, even if you know them well, because it has to do with the way one thinks. But you strike me as more of an N than a S.

Also that lawfully evil thing sounds nothing like me so I dunno how I got that, lol.

I've never thought about which of the Disctricts I could be in so I think I might actually be open to being sorted this way!
