This is basically a large compilation of all the symbols that I think are commonly used for RP and other HTML/internet purposes. Though most have actual legitimate practical purposes, we all love using them for other things. This chart is by no means complete. If you would like a full symbol reference chart, I suggest the following the places: dnmark's special characters, unicode.org's charts, and macchiato.com's charts. As you can see, the lists are HUGE. Hence why compiling all the more commonly used symbols and letters should be helpful.

A few things to note about my charts. I have them very loosely categorized. By loose I mean three: misc symbols (like punctuation), shapes, and letters. Though within each category I try to group them by similarity, like game pieces, weather symbols, zodiac signs, mathematical symbols, languages, type, etc. It's by no means perfect, but it'll do. Also, to make it easier to tell what the symbols are, I actually have them enlarged. So for instance, by default a heart symbol looks like this: ♥. Kind of small. So to make it easier, I have both the default and a larger version. It's upped to font size 28px, so it looks like this: . Lastly, I provide both the symbol that one can easily copy/paste and the actual code. So for hearts it's "♥".

Suggestion! I highly recommend using the actual code for symbols, especially if you are using the custom LJ layouts using the LJ layers technique from Starlit. At the time I'm writing this, these symbols turn into gibberish on the layouts for some weird reason. They look fine on normal DW layouts and when the style is off. But on the actual customized layouts, it's wrong. Some do work, but some others don't. (I'll edit this if this ever changes.)

Troubleshooting: The symbols don't show up on my browser! Some people may not be able to see certain symbols while others might. It could turn out gibberish or a square with numbers in it, like this: ♷ That means your computer doesn't have the proper font installed. A good place to look up how to install these (both for PCs and Macs) would be here at Unicode. For the most part, you'll have to check certain language and regional options.

If there are any symbols you'd like to see added to the charts, just comment to the post! Even if you don't know the code, I'll be able to look it up. Feel free to link this anywhere and use it at your leisure.

Also, no, I have no idea why two of Leia's base skit images are practically identical >_>;; (See 1 and 5) That's just how they were and I iconned them both out of thoroughness. If you squint you can sort of see a small difference in the mouths...

Canon: Tales of Xillia
Title: Do You Know the Mutton Man Who Lives on Murderberry Lane
Characters: All with Alvin telling the story
Rating: PG (some graphic undertones)
Summary: Once again the group is around a campfire and Alvin tells another story. This time, it's about a butcher who sells mutton.
Notes: This is the second of two little stories I wrote for an RP. I've altered it a little to fit a more canon setting. Although it technically has the whole group, Alvin is the one telling the story. There's no particular time frame. Three guess where the inspiration for this story came from.

First story: Gentleman of the Mines.

Do You Know the Mutton Man )
 
 
Canon: Tales of Xillia
Title: The Gentleman of the Mines
Characters: All with Alvin telling the story
Rating: PG (some graphic imagery)
Summary: Everyone is sitting around the campfire and Alvin suggests telling some "campfire stories." Except they're more on the creepy scary side instead of ghostly.
Notes: This is one of two little stories I wrote for an RP hah. I've altered it a little to fit a more canon setting. Although it technically has the whole group, Alvin is the one telling the story. There's no particular time frame. Also, the story format changes a bit once Alvin starts telling the story.

“ blocked ”

The line blinks against the ocean of white,
the lone sentinel that holds creativity back.
Its prisoner sits and waits
plotting.
Waiting for the day it can break free.

An idea sparks and there is a yell
as lettered soldiers band together,
struggling and pushing forward.
But the line consumes them
and all disappear into the white ocean again.

Undaunted they once more break free.
Some pass, some have to change, others destroyed,
but the line gives way.
Letters stain the ocean as their army grows.
Energy radiates off each passage.
Cheers echo with each surge.

But what seemed endless is secretly surrounded by
invisible walls that block their path
and slowly close in.

Creativity pounds against these walls,
crashing through weak points.
But its defiant screams are soon silenced as
rules and forms join the fray and
wrap around it,
pulling back.

The charge halts.
The line continues to blink
waiting
and letters falter.

The line strikes.

Breaks appear in their once tight formation.
Like a snake, the line darts through
consuming unwary letters and words.
Replacements try to rally,
but some groups are lost again
consumed by the sea of white.

Hundreds disappear
and the army dwindles
while fear grows.

Are we not strong enough?
Can we not break through?
Should we give up?

Slowly succumbed by its chains
creativity can only watch
helpless and defeated.
One by one the line feasts,
consuming all in its path
until the sea of white is pure once again.

Creativity is sent back to its cell
still pained by the lashes of conformity.
Its lettered soldiers turn to it
but find no comfort.

There is no light.

They are trapped in darkness
guarded by the blinking line.

random icon spam meme


what do
1. Comment with your character with character name and canon in the subject line. Include game if you want, but not required. IMPORTANT! You must also choose the RANDOM ICON option next to your icon selection. That icon will basically set the "stage" for everyone else to tag off from. You don't have to supply any additional information.

2. Taggers! Hit the RANDOM ICON next to your icon selection. KEEP IT RANDOM! It's called "Random Icon Meme" for a reason! This icon will dictate what the character's response will be.

3. Look to see which icon was chosen and make a tag based off it. It can be serious, crack, and even completely derail from the previous tag. Be creative and try to make it work! But have fun—this is supposed to be crack. Bonus points if the thread somehow ends up IC anyway.

4. Rinse and repeat.

5. SPAM FOREVER


.../hits random icon for this entry. heh.

SOB we've gone over 5k so reCaptcha has kicked in. But all these threads are beautiful. Beautiful. LET'S KEEP IT UP GUYS /will be over here crying tears at the hilarity
