Online Chat Meme

The internet chat room for your muses

For some reason, you've decided to sit down and hang out in an internet chat room. There are many other people there with you, and now you just have to see if you can strike up a conversation of interest. You type in something to see if it flags anyone's interest. Is it something insightful, or just a veiled and guarded "Hello". Or maybe you love meeting you people and you want to kick the conversation off yourself? Has someone said something that intrigues your, or do you maybe just appreciate their choice of username? Will you meet someone friendly, or just downright strange? Or perhaps you're the strange one and some unsuspecting person on the other end of the internet is in for an interesting chat... You may even already know the person and find yourself logged into the same chatroom.

Either way, you're online and talking to someone via a computer screen. Where that goes, it's up to you.  Will it fall dead in the water, or will it lead to a desire to meet in person? You don't have the luxury of face-to-face interaction, so the conversation is just that... and will be whatever you make it.


This is just like any other chat medium out there - mIRC, AIM, MSN Messenger, etc. You are talking online, and therefore all conversations are in first person - no prose or action text.
To set up, put your name, canon, and any preferences in the subject line, including a kick off for your chat in the comment box. It can be a single word or a whole spiel. Whatever your character might jump into an online chat with.
Have a look around and tag other people's comments to strike up a chat.
Be as creative as you like, it's just like a real internet chat. It could just be a generic chat kicked off by a brief hello, or something more specific. For example, maybe you're just looking for people in the same location as you, or where you grew up? Maybe people with similar interests to chat with? If so, remember to make your starting comment something that will entice people you are specifically looking for. Don't forget, if sexy situations are your preference, this can always lead to cyber sex - just remember to state if that is welcome in your subject header!
All conversations will be assumed to be private messages. In tagging someone, that is like taking a conversation to PM, so there is no assumed knowledge of any other conversation occuring arond you.
If all goes well, feel free to progress to meeting in person by starting a scene in your own journals.
