Details of swap:ART IS A WEAPON AGAINST LIFE AS A SYMPTOM: DEFEND YOURSELF!
My Chemical Romance created a CD called Danger Days; the Fabulous Lives Of the Killjoys
, but they did more than that. They've created personas that not only LARP through youtube videos, but write to each other on Twitter. Their music videos are serial and tell a story of underdogs fighting against a cold, dystopian post-natural disaster world in 2019. Art
are illegal, the Killjoys fight this by being as bright and artistic as they can (also they have blasters to fight the Draculoids that come to assimilate them). They've asked that their audience roleplay as their own personas in the universe, and most of us have been happy to join in. Some resources for this universe:
