You know what, I don't understand the idea that to enjoy the rp you are in now, you have to shit all over the rp you used to do. The games you used to play in or mod. Where does that come from? Just because it's old doesn't make it bad. Just because the game is done, or you're not into it anymore, or you don't rp like that anymore doesn't make it invalid or make it lack value. These things don't need to be erased because you find them embarrasing. Especially if other people were involved. These memories don't just belong to you. Talking shit about them, bitching about them, do you even consider how that makes people feel?

I sincerly doubt anyone will reply to this, but.

Give me a character of yours and a character of mine, some kind of prompt, be it a concept or song lyrics, and I will write you a drabble.

karra: (space)

« BY YOUR COMMAND is a roleplaying game set during the Second Exodus of the 13 Colonies.  Following the circular events of the universe's history--all this has happened before, all this will happen again, this game is essentially a reboot, though further back in time, than the the acclaimed reboot series, Battlestar Galactica.  The roles are the same, the players and faces are different. 

This is a variation on a theme.

A story to be told.

Lives to save, lives to lose, lives to sacrifice.

Who are you?

Welcome to the Colonies.

Welcome to war.

I need a relaxy, low-stress game I think.
karra: (stretching!)
Starting this week on General Hospital, Lucky Spencer is taking over the life of an Irish Gangster that he happens to look identical to that has died in order to help Interpol do...I don't know. Something. Not even Interpol seemed to know wtf he was supposed to be doing.

Anyway. And it occured to me that that plotline sounded so very freaking familiar to me, and I could not figure out why. Until right this second. When I realised that it was the plot of a season of Due South.

Anyway, the idea of Lucky Spencer taking over the life of a deceased Irish Gangster Assassin (named Ronan O'Reily natch) is so ridiculously funny to me. Even if only for the fact that he already sounds like he stepped right out of the pages of a 1950s sitcom that occasionally veers into an episode of Mad Men. I mean, it's not like the show's going to make him suddenly use modern day swearing, so this The Balkan (!) guy that will probably turn out to be a missing Cassadine or Emily Quartermaine or something ridonkulous is going to have to contend with his "Irish Assassin" saying things like:

"Listen to me. Listen to me. You can't listen to me when you're yelling."

"Subtlety is, "That sweater looks pretty". When what you really mean is, "I love your mouth". Wtf, Lucky what're you, Don Draper? He was SEVENTEEN WHEN HE SAID THIS.

"I'll be there, wouldn't miss it. Nikolas and Elizabeth, I don't think they're gonna be able to make it, though, because they'll be too busy rutting like farm animals."

At least they got this right. This is, in fact, the face someone who has been asked to do this should have:

I don't know why I app so many people at C&C. Maybe there aren't any other games at that pace? Or...style? I don't know. I'm sure I'll app another one at some point. Quite a few people I played with there have left, well. You know. Not all of them have?

Rp is weird. Usually fun. Museboxing is always fun. Narrativity is always fun.

What am I even typing. Why do I have this weird ass icon of Christopher Gorham I've never used? Woomp, there it is. Oh my God, you can talk. MEXICO.

...It's late.
karra: (tess doerner)
How weird is it that I am kind of tempted to app like Lulu or Lucky Spencer at C&C just to see if I could get away with playing something SO FUCKING BIZARRE.

1. Open your playlist, set it on random
2. List the first ten songs that play, pick lyrics from them that you like.
3. Take other "writer's" playlist, and use as prompts.

I will post my playlist below.  I...imagine it means using your own rp characters. Idea?

Give me a character of yours and a character of mine, some kind of prompt, be it a concept or song lyrics, and I will write you a drabble.

Current Characters/Apped Characters
  • Allison Young - Terminator
  • Whiskey - Dollhouse
  • Fracta (Fred Burkle) - Angel
  • Rory Williams - Doctor Who
  • John Connor - Terminator
  • Sam Tyler - Life on Mars
karra: (space)
I want to rp, but I can't think of anything to post.  No one I talk to appears to be online. Bah bah bah-dy, shut up Karra.

Have watched the pilot for Covert Affairs.  Nice to see the USA Network's Original Series Formula is still in use.

The Formula:
  • Main Character: the best at what they do, but "flawed" in some manner. 
    • Shawn Spencer - best "psychic detective", so....so....so many issues.
    • Adrian Monk - best detective in the world, has OCD/germaphobia/everythingaphobia
    • Mary Shannon - best US Marshall in the world, trust and abandonment issues
    • Annie Walker - best CIA agent in training ever, romance issues of some sort.
  • Sidekick/Partner/Whatever: quirky, but more normal than the main character and does not have trouble fitting in. Usually has a regular-type job, or skills that will help the main character in some manner.
    • Burton Guster: Pharmaceutical Sales Rep, patient, has a car, Shawn's best friend. Has a superior sense of smell.
    • Marshall Mann: 5th gen US Marshall. Knows everything ever, apparently.
    • Auggie Anderson: Special Ops/Tech Geek/Computer Whiz. Blind.
  • The Boss: Tough, but tends to let the main character do his thing while turning a blind eye.
    • Stan McQueen
    • Joan Campbell
    • Leland Stottlemeyer
  • The Family Member: Family member(s) who tend to push the main character's buttons in one way or another.
    • Ambrose Monk - Shut in brother
    • Jinx Shannon / Brandy Shannon:  Alcoholic mother / poor choice making sister.
    • Danielle Brooks:  Blind-date-setting up sister.
I think there's more to the formula, but at the moment my brain has froze.

I can't believe I'm still annoyed I got rps!secreted about. Bah.
karra: (riki lindhome)
Second post tomorrow, because it takes too long to upload. These may be out of order because...photobucket is weird like that. idk.

EDITED: To add half of the rest, because I couldn't sleep.

The Lyrics Narrative Meme

1. Put your mp3 player on shuffle and take the first 15 songs it gives you.
2. Link to the lyrics. (or a video)
3. Let your friends assign you a song and character(s) to write a narrative to.

The Minor Character Meme

Give me one or more of my characters and one minor character in their lives (i.e. their mother, their father, their first crush, their crazy neighbor lady, etc. etc.), and I'll tell you 5 facts AND who I'd use as a PB for said minor character. Poke me harder, I'll write them a narrative.

It’s a hard, screwed-up world, but if you trust me, I can try to help you get through.

All the universes are clustered together up and down, and each and every one of them is separately sevenfold-covered.

 It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

So that's interesting, and probably noteworthy.

Here's a weird question.

Of all the people in my rp...knowings, do I know anyone who could/would play Kyle Reese. (SCC version, not Yelchin or Biehn, though really. Is there a DIFFERENCE)
karra: (fear street)
Give me a character of mine and I will give you at least four facts about them according to my own personal canon. This can range from their birthday, favorite color or even their earliest memory up to what they had last night for dinner.

Co-Played )

Special Occasions/Temporarily Unplayed/Possibly Dead )

This is over what....4, 5 years of rp? 100% possible I forgot something.
