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 and colour and music 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:
The first video in the serial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egG7fiE89IU
The second video in the serial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTgnDLWeeaM

Gerard's character sketches: http://community.livejournal.com/mcr_unofficial/44903.html#cutid1

Lyrics to the songs: http://www.azlyrics.com/m/mychemicalromance.html

BL/Ind.'s website: http://betterlivingindustries.jp/

Dr Death Defying's twitter (has the other twitters friended): http://twitter.com/DrDeathDefying

Obviously this is going to be a tiny swap, but I think it'll still be awesome. We'll all get new gear/stuff, and that's all that matters, right?

On a different note, can anyone think of resources I've missed? I wasn't sure whether or not to include the Dead Pegasus website, as a lot of people think it's a hoax.

Lastly, to explain one of the questionnaire questions, I come at Killjoys from sort of a fandom perspective. 'Shipping is when you pair two characters. I know of a lot of people that believe Show Pony and Dr Death Defying are together. If you don't ship anyone, obviously leave it blank. But if you do, and just didn't know what that phrase meant, you can re-pm me with any changes.  Smiley

CONGRATS, LA-FAIRY! I hope the concert is freaking AMAZING. Well, I know it will be, but I hope you have tons of fun at it.
