Team! Guess what? We have a banner and icons of our mascot, thanks to the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] sprat. Once I figure how to put the banner up on our comm we'll be in business. (I don't know CSS. I have gone out of my way not to learn CSS. And here I am...stuck figuring out how to learn CSS. Life IS hard and I fail at LJ coding).

We also have a soundtrack thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jamethiel_bane's hard work and willingness to spend hours uploading Tim Lehr songs. [livejournal.com profile] omphale23 also has some plans in the works for a second Team Angst soundtrack, and she asks that you put in some suggestions about possible songs, or help her cut the list down. (Apparently there is a lot of sad music about heartbreak and loneliness floating around out there. Who knew?)

Speaking of music, [livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone very nearly co-opted Stan Rogers' "Northwest Passage" as a Team Romance song. I had to set her straight. Because that song? Is ANGST. As is most of Roger's ouvre. I've been in negotiations with [livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone (and no, I'm not sure how these representatives get picked) and Cat has claimed French for the official Romance language; we get German. And beer is our official drink. They get floaty dresses and, I dunno, capes and crap like that, and we get thick-soled stompy boots and black leather. I think that since we've already got a language, a dress code, an official drink and an animal mascot we're more organized than many small countries, but I'm sure there is still ground out there to claim. Icons and other team goodies are still being produced, [livejournal.com profile] ds_team_root is going strong, and the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] sdwolfpup has vid for our team called "Mountanic." It may be the greatest thing ever.

And finally our Drabble Tree is expanding nicely. I love our team so much! The drabbles posted thus far have been fantastic, and I know there are many more branches to come. If you haven't contributed yet please do so; there's still a lot of time before the prompts are assigned on Monday, and I know we've only begun to plumb the depths of despair and pain to which the Boys can sink.

Go team angst!

The beer thing is my fault, I'm pretty sure. Sorry about that.

And as for claiming Stan Rogers--I'm sorry. There is no way they get Northwest Passage. That stuff is all about the angst, the whole album is. They can have "Watching the Apples Grow" or something, because it's bouncing and happy and not nearly as impressive. Just like Romance.

You've never cried into your beer over a love gone bad? Drank cheap beer to drown out the pain of living alone in your trailer with just your mangy dog and a shotgun without shells?

I know!

Got it down to 56 tracks, and the last set of cuts was PAINFUL. But still. I'm thinking of posting it locked over on my journal, and then crossposting it locked here. Does that work?

Um. No. NWP is all about the sweeping epic adventure. Which is ROMANTIC. And he doesn't die at the end, no matter what nos is trying to make me believe.

Also, hi! *kisses you with romantical kisses*

Ha! All the best dS soundtrack/episode songs are ANGSTY ANGSTY ANGSTY! Because angst rules. :D

I will try to drabble, but y'all broke my brain with the wicked brilliance of what's been written so far and I could only sit and rock and whimper. *vbeg*

Oh come on, after "God Says Nothing Back" you should be holding your head high in any gathering of Angst Writers. Because of the sobbing and wailing and gnashing of teeth it engendered in all readers.

a) _I_ know CSS. Want help?

b) Want German music? I'm going to look for German music. \o/ Do we want German mottos? Or stuff?

Cat has claimed French for the official Romance language
You know, in light of the Canadian government's record with its Francophone population, I think we may be able to use this to our advantage. Parlez vous "anti-draft riots"? *plots*

If we're talking beer, how 'bout Guinness Extra Stout, 'cause that's like liquid food. It's the darkness that sustains us.

Now I'mma have to go back and revisit four years of high school/college German? Oh dear. This could get ugly.

Obviously, I need new boots.

Should we have some Headstones in our sound track? Hmmm, which one?

I had to leave it out of mine--because Hugh is ANGRY, and I was going for melancholy. I'm happy to put up links for stuff if people want it, though.

(I suppose there might be a Headstones track out there I don't own. Maybe.)

I guess I do tend to enjoy my angst with a substantial side of anger. And fiery explosions when available. :P

We are not even talking about work or the fact that I'm posting from there. Angst! So. Hi! Okay, first of all. Team Romance tried to co-opt "Northwest Passage"? No. Just... no. Sorry. In fact, I'd say we get the vast majority of the Due South musical oeuvre, as it were, should anyone wish to claim sea shanties and Sarah MacLachlan. They want ballads and, like, fine, take Celine. (Really, take her far away.) I just feel we need to hold the line on angst ballads, because are we prepared to lose the complete works of Meatloaf? I don't know that I am.

I would say, as far as drinks are concerned, that we also get all of your Polish vodkas and whatever the whiskey is that Fraser drops in "Some Like It Red." It seems important to claim things, because I saw what happened over at Romance and it was like Black Friday at Walmart.

So many nice drabbles. I want to pet them. I want to be able to edit comments once posted. I want to throw everything on my desk out the window. Life's a bitch. ANGST!

You get string vests, we get sexy lingerie. We win so very much.
