Either/Or
« on: May 12, 2009, 03:11:40 PM »
Here's a game that I found elsewhere on the net, though without the essential Dark Shadows component.

One person posts a choice: Either "this" or "that".  The next person puts their choice and why they would chose it over the other one, briefly giving his or her reason, whatever it may be.  That same person then contributes an new Either/Or, whereupon someone else answers, gives a reason, and creates a new Either/Or.

Choices can be between two people, places, things, spells, storylines - anything related to Dark Shadows!

Here's an example:
Either Dr. Lang's house,

Or Nicholas Blair's house.

Given this choice, I would pick Nicholas Blair's house.  It has an excellent basement, suitable for coffin storage, unholy ceremonies, and Diabolos only knows what else.  As a woman whose house has naught but a crawl space underneath it, I have a high regard for a good basement.

This choice is for the next poster:

Either the wig that Grayson Hall wore when she first played Julia Hoffman,

Or the wig that Kathryn Leigh Scott wore when she first played Maggie Evans.

To assist in decision-making, I am including pictures of the competing wigs.

I choose Maggie Evan's wig. I think it added to her "straight shooter, no nonsense" character.

This question comes from the Adam/Eve story line...

Either Angelique's "vampire" dress, or Eve's black dress?

(can anyone provide pics for me? I don't have any.)
Have you ever had the sensation of being stared at? Like somebody was staring at you and you couldn't see them? Because I just had that feeling now. Somebody was looking at me. Looking right through me.

Here are two captures that were already posted for the Caption This! or Complete This Phrase / Fill In The Blanks games (which is also where Lydia found her captures [ghost_smiley] [thumb]):

Angelique's shroud:


Eve's cocktail dress:

It's an excellent way to recycle captures that have already been posted - plus it saves on the Forum's Web space.  [ghost_wink]

The picture of Eve's dress isn't showing up for me, but if I remember correctly, it was black and knee-length, and it featured unnecessary extra material.  I'm not 100% certain that Willie didn't get it off of a corpse, but it won't show the dirt as much as that white get-up of Angelique's, so I'm choosing it.

Next choice (no pictures needed, I think):

Either Sam Evans,

Or Charles Delaware Tate.

I thought that was Ms. Hall's real hair?
I get a kick out of these guys who think they're so clean, when all the time they're trying to cover up their dirt.

Janet the Wicked, I believe it has been conclusively established that Julia's first hairdo was a wig, but this opens up exciting new either/or possibilities.  "So-and-so's hair in episode xxx: either real or a wig."

In the meantime, we're stuck with the latest either/or: Sam Evans or Charles Delaware Tate?

Oh. Well, I'll pick Sam. He reminds me of me. Except that I'm not a man, I don't have a beard, and I don't smoke a pipe.

Either enjoying the dubious pleasures of the village with Quentin Collins

Or sitting on the dock with Joe Haskell at lunch time eating codfish balls and sipping coffee out of a thermos.

Since I think it would be too time consuming to find the balls on a cod, I opt for enjoying time with Quentin!

Would you rather have coffee at the diner with Maggie, or drinks at the Blue Whale with Carolyn?

That's a tough one.  I don't drink coffee, but I don't drink a lot of booze either.  Think I'll go with Maggie, and have tea instead.  I can pick up on all the town gossip and don't have to put up with the excessive amounts of cigarette smoke.

Post-Barn Willie. He needs a good roll in the hay. (besides...I'm not into leather, lol)

Either Mrs. Hutchins bird or Aunt Hanna's cockatiel?

I can't remember either bird, but a parallel time cockatiel who has lived with the parallel time Stokeses sounds too good to pass up.

A tour by Joshua, I would love to back in time, in the late 1700's.

How about a little brother, like David,
Or a little sister like Amy

I'd choose Amy as a sibling over David without a second thought, because Amy is always loyal to members of her family.

Or Barnabas's ring.
