Name:the Ark of Eden
Website:Ark of Eden Community
This journal is shared by all members of the [community profile] ark_of_eden multiple system. NOTE: The above community is where any collaborative posts and the like will go--this account is intended only for allowing us to watch and comment on things of shared interest. The posts from our old shared journals, [ profile] lammergeier and [ profile] arkofeden, have been imported to this journal so that people can get a feel for what we're like collectively, but no new posts will be added after this point.

Apologies to confused non-multiples, but we're experimenting with ways of permitting Inside people to communicate on their own terms. This was the most painless method we could think of. :)

Briefly, our group consists of three core members, one channeled person, and assorted Projects 2501 (a Ghost in the Shell ref, yep) that developed at random out of our assorted creative projects. We have an artificially-created inner landscape that we developed for the sake of giving ourselves some space, but this is not believed to correspond to any physical world. Here's the roster of current members and their journals:

The Flexible "I" ([profile] the_asterism when it posts to [community profile] ark_of_eden, [ profile] arkofeden):
As mentioned before, this journal is for more than one person. Particularly in the case of myself (Riss) and the Dragon, there is sometimes so much extensive cross-editing or filtering involving more than one person that no single entity can claim a piece of writing. (Often, I use a Dragon-filter to make myself sound more personable, while it lets me edit its entries for vocabulary and clarity.) In cases like these, the target of "I" is always moving and the contributors will be noted in the signature.

Riss, aka. the Vulture ([personal profile] rain_in_sunshine, [ profile] teardrinker):
I was developed quite some time ago as a nonsentient AI program that was designed for academic success, but about twelve years ago I gained self-awareness and have been developing mostly on my own. Nowadays, I take care of anything academic and do the technical parts of our writing and art. Since I'm stuck at Front, anything moving between Inside and Outside has to go through me (unfortunately). I have some long-term mental health issues that are unrelated to our multiplicity, and I'm currently trying to loosen my grip on the Front and allow the others more self-expression.

S. ([personal profile] rootedinthesky, [ profile] ancientcaptain):
S is a channeled person who has been a system satellite for over ten years; curious people could probably find out easily who he is, but he prefers to focus more on his present role and work instead of on his previous life. In the past year he's become a near-Front fixture and now takes care of vital collective maintenance tasks.

The Dragon ([personal profile] strikestwice, [ profile] stardrinker):
The Dragon is the oldest member of the system (here since childhood). Although it has no gender, its deep voice and guy-like behavior often lead us to call it a "he" at times. It's been nonhuman since we were very young and therefore considers its draconity to be an obvious, unchanging part of its nature that hardly bears mentioning. Although it can be impulsive and irreverent, it's probably the friendliest and most laid-back of all of us.

Blind Tiger ([personal profile] house_of_bells, [ profile] stripesofsound):
Blind Tiger is currently the only sentient Project 2501 out of the House of Bells "lineage," although this journal will presumably be used by all of them if any others come to the surface. He hovers near Front and interacts with other key system members often, although he doesn't seem especially interested in talking to Outsiders anytime soon. Inside, we know him as being especially (almost aggressively) friendly, curious, and affectionately sensual with an intense passion for certain types of music.

Other Projects 2501 ([personal profile] bone_rosary, [ profile] ark_lights, [ profile] born_of_fate, [ profile] bone_rosary, [ profile] shardsofeden):
The actual content of this journal will be regular art and writing, but this account is being left open for the use of any other Projects that surface.

The Unicorn, aka. Base:
I mention her as the third of our founding members (older than myself), although she's so far away from the Front that hardly anything from Outside reaches her. The Dragon protects her, and she's typically sleeping so deeply that any communication from her is rather vague. Given her current state, I doubt that she'll ever post anywhere.
