TIPS AND ADVICE - DAY 22 - Best tip/advice for...
I don’t think any one of my characters has started completely fleshed out. Don’t try to learn everything about your character right when you’re bringing them into being. They will evolve and become their own person. Seriously. Don’t try to make them the best at everything or the worst at something. Give them small quirks, be mindful of what normal people have as quirks and...
SURPRISES - DAY 14 - Tell us about a character...
Max/Ben // Initially, Max and Ben just wasn’t going to happen. It was intended to be a little creepy and a little stalkery and Max likely wasn’t going to even bother with him much more than avoiding him. But he started being less creepy and she started enjoying his company. Laurie/Remy // So they’re not really a serious thing, but it’s more of a close friendship. Laurie...
SURPRISES - DAY 13 - Tell us about a character who...
Patt. Patt sort of came out of nowhere. She started out as this weird voice I was doing and it evolved into a potential Letowski sibling. Then Patt was mainly male, but we realized that she was a huge troll (and had other issues) and pretened to be a boy for a variety of reasons. Also, Connor! Connor was just a background character for Poe and then he evolved into something more.
LEARNING - DAY 12 - Tell us about a hobby or...
Um, pretty much anything Poe does in any universe. A Hunter, long-term museum worker, generally cool chick all around. Adara and Gwen both work at a record store, which would be awesome as well.
LEARNING - DAY 11 - Tell us about something you...
I got the entirety of Fight Club handed to me in a more interesting manner by Angie.
LEARNING - DAY 10 - Tell us about something you...
For Poe, I researched a lot of weird stuff. Like constructed languages and all sorts of history stuff. But I like researching stuff like that! I think, out of everyone, Poe is the one that requires the most ongoing research for, well, anything. A lot of my characters are relatively modern-day sorts, so there’s really just a lot of minor research for each of them.
BACKSTAGE INFO - DAY 09 - What comes first, the PB...
Almost always the character comes first. I can’t think of anyone I made FOR the PB. Admittedly, I only started using PBs this last year, so it’s a small time frame. Wait, Connor’s potential girlfriend is happening because of Olivia Wilde, so I guess that’s an exception. But 99.9% of the time the character comes first.
BACKSTAGE INFO - DAY 08 - Post favorite YouTube...
I don’t have any YouTube videos (I don’t watch much, to be honest), so here’s my favorite PB pics instead. CONNOR: COURTNEY: HEATHER: JASON: LAURIE: ALEXIS: POE: SHIRA:
BACKSTAGE INFO - DAY 07 - Post pictures of your...
BACKSTAGE INFO - DAY 06 - Tell us about a...
Connor and Adara. They’re both sort of half-developed in that I have their basics down, but not much more past that.
BACKSTAGE INFO - DAY 05 - Tell us about a...
I still play almost all of my characters, considering they’re almost all OCs anyhow.
BACKSTAGE INFO - DAY 04 - Tell us about a...
Probably Heather, actually. I’d always wanted to do a Silent Hill game, but it’s A LOT of work. I ended up with Heather because Tony brought Gabe and Gram (who are from the Dark Angel-verse) over to the high school game and I got the random thought of how cute/awkward Gabe and Heather would be together. I don’t pick up a lot of canon/FC characters because I sometimes don’t...
This is pretty much how character relationships of...
Ally: Fffff! Valeria and Keith (Phe's ex) have the same last names.
Angie: SIBLINGS -- no
Ally: NEVER MORE DIFFERENT http://junkbones.tumblr.com/tagged/character:%20keith%20wellmore
Angie: She'd be like EL OH EL SQUARE WHAT IS THIS WHERE IS YOUR GLITTERY EVERYTHING
Angie: CAN NOT BE RELATED TO THIS
Angie: I SIMPLY CAN NOT
Ally: AT ALL. EVER. PLEASE.
Angie: Or even better, she is
Ally: Keith is :|
Ally: "And this is my sister."
Angie: "Charmed, I'm sure~ Keith, run along now, you're sucking the life out of the room. Shoo, shoo!"
Angie: waves him away
Ally: "git, git, I have people to impress~"
Angiei: jdhf hahaha
Ally: /glitter trail
Ally: herpes of art supplies
Ally: Keith finds it in everything he owns.
Angie: his thesis paper for school, GLITTER
Ally: pink glitter
Ally: all over the papers
Ally: he tries to brush them off, they just spread
Angie: She wasn't anywhere near his room, it's just in the air
Ally: It's seeped into the house.
Angie: Their dad is downstairs, hacking up a lung, pink and gold glitter floating around
Ally: clouds of it
Angie: "DAMMIT VAL"
Ally: "NO GLITTER IN THE HOUSE."
Angie: "I didn't bring any inside! I swear!" /produces itself magically
Ally: She doesn't sweat, it's just glitter.
Angie: I think this needs to be a canon relationship, I think
Ally: I think so. We've really developed it in the last five minutes.
Angie: you know how we do
Ally: Damn straight.
INSPIRATION - DAY 03 - What are the inspirations...
Usually things relating to them, obviously. LET ME RUN DOWN THE ONES I HAVE. capturedaway - This is Poe’s screenname for most journals. It’s a reference to a song my mom wrote years and years ago and I thought it just ‘worked’ for her. conchobor - This is Connor’s and it comes from the name that his first name comes from and it means ‘lover of hounds’....
INSPIRATION - DAY 02 - How do other RPers inspire...
In general - and I know this sounds awful of me - I’m really judgmental of most RPers if I don’t know them. So for others to inspire me, I’d have to know them somewhat first - and know they’re not obnoxious/Mary Sue’s/what-have-you. My friends are always a big inspiration with my characters and RP stuff because we bounce ideas off each other and come up with...
INSPIRATION - DAY 01 - Where do you get...
Pretty much anywhere, to be honest. The canon the character may have come from, the place the character lives, the type of hobbies/jobs they have, my friends, things I see on TV that might not even be related to the character at all. ‘What ifs’ are always fun, too, as well as alternate realities/universes and any sort of random tropes that come up in conversation. Most of my...
