21st-May-2008 01:04 pm - Ask Logan
Hi all, this is my first LJ post. I'm sorry for no more updates on Neptune Online. But its 11 am in the morn here and I was missing Logan so much that I decided to make up a Ask Logan piece. 
Ahh the things we do for our love..

Dear Logan,

My brother is being held in solitary confinement at the State Prison.  I know it’s a long shot but I’m planning to break him out. With your experience of prisons, I was hoping you could give me a few pointers maybe.

~ Familial Duty Man


Dear Familial Duty Man,

I think you have your facts mixed up. My prison experience does not extend to solitary confinement. And anyway your question seems more appropriate for Michael Scofield. Still, take care that you carry out your plan in the middle of the night, because the middle of the day is just stupid. Also I’m guessing you don’t have any inside connections with the prison architect as well as no time to tattoo your body with the prison blueprints, so my suggestion would be to get yourself thrown in with your brother and then dig a hole. Maybe you’ll find your way to China.  Are you sure you want to do this though? Is your life so unimportant that you are willing to give it away for your brother who very conveniently got caught leaving you in this mess? Always rely on family to make your life difficult than it already is.

Btw if you catch a glimpse of Mercer and Moe, give them a Mcfisty treat.

Good luck man!

Dear Logan,

I like totally hate my brother. He is such a hypocrite. All night he’s out partying with his skanky friends while I’m stuck at home, tending to my Dad and his... friend. She’s like so cool. But when it’s my time to get jiggy with the guys, my brother is like so jealous. He won’t let me go. Total hypocrite right? And then my dad’s friend keeps me company, but I think my dad has some issues with it. I’m like so confused. I have no one to talk to because well my best friend is always more friendly with my dad than me. I mean like what’s up with that? Totally not cool right? And then I watch Oprah, but she doesn’t seem to answer my questions. I’m like so stumped. Help me out please.

~ Like Totally Stumped


Dear Like Totally Stumped,

I’m sorry but Oprah is not the answer. Neither is Doctor Phil nor Logan Echolls. What you need is to go see Jerry Springer and have it out.

I wish you luck

Dear Logan,

The radio show guy is pretty cool. He keeps on dedicating songs to this girl whom no one dedicates songs to. And then he talks about all this awesome stuff which encompasses not only the campus goings but everything around the world. The 10 o’clock show is a must of his. Plus he has a great voice. I love listening to him. I’m such a big fan. If only I knew where his dorm room was. I’d be happy to write him a fan letter.

Dear Piz,

That has to be the lamest publicity stunt anyone pulled out of his ass. EVER. I think what you need  is to travel to Narcissistan and be attacked by Killer Zombie Unicorns. Happy Ending

9th-Oct-2007 08:16 am - WRITERS: Re-claim your work!
We just wanted to let everyone know that now that the blog is dead and buried, there is no reason why you can't re-claim your work as your own. If you want to re-post any of your neptune_online entries in your personal fic journals or in VM fic communities under your own names, that is fine with us.

You could go through vm_blog and gather you original pieces (these memories should help) or you could use the final edited versions and just make a note that the members of NNO weighed in with suggestions and corrections.

Just do us a favor and make a post in here with a link to your re-post (which may or may not include a re-write: your choice) so your fellow staffers can finally give you the public credit you deserve.

~ The Editors

P.S. We still really want to post the dark_roast/bennet_7 Logan/Heather back and forth and hopefully will get around to it today but you guys should feel free to re-claim that one too. You two make a great team!

I know this community is deader than dead, but I randomly decided to check the neptune_online email address this morning and there was a question waiting for Logan...

Dear Logan,

I don't know if you do this any more but I'm asking you a question anyway. If you liked a guy for like ever and then you thought it would never happen... and then now it's happening what do you do??? Are you two timing that blonde chick?!?!

-It's happening to me

Neptune Online
The three months I bought neptune_online so we would have time to figure out whether or not we want to continue it run out February 15th. I am not sure if the other mods are going to continue to try to publish issues, but I am officially stepping down as an editor and mod. I may still write for the blog once and awhile if you guys keep it up, but I think I need to prioritize and say this is not a good way for me to expend my energy anymore.

Thanks to everyone who gave the pulling back the curtain issue a shot. Sorry it didn't work out.

Overall this has been an amazing experience and I am glad I was able to be a part of it.

~ spadada

People really love it. Just got some more reader comments in the editors' inbox today (edited for grammar because I do that):

OMG! This is absolutely awesome! I just stumbled across this site and it's just hilarious! Especially the sound off parts. Everyone is just so in character. Well done guys! And, YES! I always knew Logan watched The O.C. after all. I bet there's a lot of things he can relate to in that show.

Any pieces you wanted to have included in the upcoming issues are due by tomorrow (Sunday January 14th.)

Here is a list of what we have so far, and I know there are a few posts that welcome any comments from the anyone in the community.

What we have so far.Collapse )

This should be a fun way to get us all thinking about what we do here every few weeks.
10th-Jan-2007 05:42 pm - How To...
In the comments of afrocurl's previous post, babsonite posted a base idea that I love. Her base was a "how to" on writing a sound-off. Instead of trying to make one "how to" work as a full piece, I thought it'd be kind of neat to do one complete "How To" that covered multiple of our regular pieces each issue. So, for instance, babsonite's sound off, something on Ask Logan, maybe the various movie reviews, TV Show reviews, etc.

If we all work together on this one and just use the comments below to come up with small how-tos of each of those, we can probably throw together a full piece pretty quickly. Heck, even write the "how to" from the characters point of view if you think that'd be funny.

Here's the How To that babsonite originally posted in the comments to get us started:

How to write a sound-offCollapse )
This idea came to me as I was listening to spadada debate the various ways to do this edition of NO. Just a different way to get some of my favorite individual pieces and issue regulars mentioned. Let me know what you think. Feedback is always appreciated. Also, I had left out the dates on these emails when I was first writing them as I didn't know when I'd be done to make it realistic. I am wondering now if I should go back and create a timeline for them? I think maybe I should... what do you think?

I'm not sure how to do the intro to this? I was going to make it from "The Editors" but that might be silly since y'all actually exist? I mostly just need an intro to explain that it's color coded for ease of following the exchange and, also, that clearly I love pieces that are written by a combo of characters (like the Sound Offs and TV Show Exchanges since I couldn't even write my piece without doing that. ;)

6th-Jan-2007 11:52 am - NO on MySpace
Howdy. I do have something written up for the hiatus issue and I know I should post it before I post this, but I don't have it formatted yet and I need to get to the bank before they close!

So, why am I posting you ask? Well, awhile ago I suggested to spadada that we create a MySpace page for NO. I'm not a huge fan of MySpace but there's no denying the place it has in online marketing right now. spadada agreed with me but we were busy doing other things so the idea kind of got dropped. Not long after that, the VM character pages got created and everytime they post links to things in her blog, I am reminded that if we had a MySpace account we could be increasing our readership by getting some of Veronica's "friends" to check us out. I re-suggested the idea to spadada recently and this time I actually followed through with the idea.

So, without further ado, I invite you to...

Check out our MySpace page.

But you may notice it's a little lean on actual info about us...Collapse )

And now I must go if I don't want my rent check to be late. Thanks for listening and helping any way you can!
5th-Jan-2007 10:40 pm - To get this party started!
Comm - Party Down
Here are some of my favorite moments from the Blog thus far. Included some favorite pieces that I've written, as well as others. Lastly, there are two comment threads that just made me laugh most of the time.

If there are too many of these, in the end, I'll work on something else for this issue.

Onward to the random...Collapse )

So there's some thoughts. I'm more than willing to work on something else if more people end up writing pieces like this.
