I thought it might be fun to start a general OOC discussion thread where everyone could share extra stuff about their characters without filling up the RP threads with spam. Every once in a while, I’ll try to post question/topic prompts to get things lively in here. Hopefully, that will lead to giggles and character development and happy community bonding and stuff. Feel free to leave any sort of OOC comments, props, questions, etc. about existing RPs here. Also, if you have any ideas for future prompts, please PM them to me!
I hope this is alright aaaand… let’s get this started and see if it works.
PROMPT 04: Cartoon Characters
For this prompt, pick any cartoon character who is most similar to your RP character. Describe the character a bit for anyone who isn't familiar with them and write a little bit about why you think they are similar. Supplement with pics if desired.
PROMPT 01: OOC Pics
Post the most OOC pics of your character’s playby that you can find. (inspired by a pic exchange with Atropa )
Post for as many or as few of your characters as you want, just follow board rules as far as NSFW/PG-13 content goes.
I’ll start with one of Esteban and save the rest for later:
Alissa - Well... at least Dylan still looks all cute and Brady Bunch about having a gun and trying to shoot someone, right? Btw, that wasn't even from the man-pile I was talking about! Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UApM6lg2S0 fast forward to 4:00.
*has stupid grin on face*
Atropa - OMG, LOL. It looks like a very, very misguided, ham-fisted attempt on Valerian's part to try to fit in better with Noah so they can be BFFs.
Here's another OOC--Donnie as a 90's hair villain
and just so we run the gamut here, Donnie as a singing & dancing dinosaur:
And another one of my characters. Same story as Valerian's portrayal; I had to make do with what I could find. There are ALOT of ooc pics of Leigh's portrayal, but they're far from suitable to be posted here. And the comment is actually very true to character, but... just couldn't help myself:
'Somewhere out there... there's a jock missing a head.'
Atropa: The little pink string bikini & boots might be OOC, but Esteban would be totally cool if Leigh decided to start wearing it... especially if she wanted to wash his [nonexistent] car in it. Also, that comment matches perfectly.
Alissa: *sigh* Not only does Vela make cuddle bunnies with the goalie (who is kinda cute) , but Giovani dos Santos (who is pretty damn cute) jumps directly on top of them in that man-pile. And Esteban would *never* join the football team, but he *might* join the futbol team. Errr... would he ever do the homoerotic bromancey stuff? He would definitely resist it since he's pretty homophobic, but I know how sports can really, er, bring people together, so I couldn't say for sure. :p
I grinned at Lara's pic. She's the girl next door type, right? And given Natalie & Matt's interaction so far, that pic of her with the axe doesn't seem very OOC to me ...it's more like, uh, a metaphysical avatar of her feelings for him
Here's an OOC Lola as a nerd with bad hair and no cleavages:
Damian completely ooc, because as much as he may love himself, he has a far more refined way of expressing it;
robo - I just had to go with that one. And as for Leigh in a pink string bikini washing Esteban's car... The little lady says "fat chance!". For while she might put on a string bikini just to be a tease, it wouldn't be pink, and the only way she'd scrub a car, would be with a handful of gravel. :p
THis is such a cool idea for a thread!
Are text things welcome?
There's a bunch of OOC/ out-of-storyline things I've wanted to write for my characters, but I didn't think it'd be appropriate to start a thread for, or put in the RP thread. Would that be okay to put here?
The humor of a story on the internet is in direct inverse proportion to how accurate the reporting is.
Atropa: I laughed so hard at that part in American Psycho! With Xian Bale as a playby, I imagine there are tons of really OOC pics for Damian. I mean, really, can you imagine Damian dressing up as Batman and fighting crime? Or chasing a hooker down a hall wielding a chainsaw naked except for a pair of tennis shoes? (Funny enough, I imagine the scene where he holds a gun to a kitten's head to be IC for Damian )
FurryPanda: Will you PM me with your idea for what you want to write? I'd like to try to do something like a weekly(ish) prompt. That way everyone can participate, discuss, and it keeps the thread a bit more organized. If your OOC writing idea is some sort of topic that everyone can try with their own characters, then maybe I could post it as the next prompt? (If it's too specific to your characters though, then I could just make an "anything goes" prompt every once and a while.)
Btw, anyone else reading this, if you have any ideas for future OOC prompts, please PM them to me
Or Esteban will steal your 8yr old's motorbike and cry when he doesn't know how to ride it. Hey! Maybe Leigh would wash this in a string bikini? Right? Right?
Robokitty - Lol, indeed she is. There are quite a few ooc moments from Natalie Portman, therefore.
LOL, Esteban looks like he's having a painfully good time on that bike... like said 8 y/o kicked him in the groin and Esteban decided to do some strange Dennis the Menace impression.
I agree with Furry, I think ooc scenarios would be a riot, so looking forward to it :D
Dylan again. Man, I love Kristen Bell, she's so much fun
"Life is just a chance to grow a soul" - A. Powell Davies
LOL this thread is brilliant! Valerian the Fashion Victim cracked me up and Esteban's face in that last pic is just hilarious. Slave girl Dylan is awesome, I bet the guys at Brooklake wouldn't mind seeing that pic.
Between her and Donnie, I sense a bizzarro Halloween party, as for geeky Lola, she's quite adorable really.
Oh and I vote for the ooc scenarios too, I already have one in mind
Here are mine:
Aeode, the Myspace camwhore edition
Melody, apparently trying to match styles with Valerian up there
LOL @ Moira! A misguided attempt to hang onto her youth there She does look utterly adorable, though.
Melody - lol, bad, but still salvagable
The prize winner has to be Aeode - lol, bleached her hair in an attempt to hide from the vamps, but posting said pics on myspace... not a great idea. Blonde hair does suit the actress/model, though.
Josh wearing a wife beater (and a wife) and looking rather dubious and far from puppyish:
Lena... hard to find ooc pics because Adriana Lima and Alexandria have almost matching facial expressions/demeanour. This one, the face is right, but she'd die if she had to wear anything as tacky. So, joining in on the VtM fashion failures:
Lol, I'm sad we never did a Halloween party at Brooklake... it'd be so fun. Maybe a fancy dress party for charity or something....
"Life is just a chance to grow a soul" - A. Powell Davies
Ghani - Christ, Bryce really looks so very different in that pic! It suits her, but it took me a while to see that it was actually her. For some reason, it was easier to spot the similarity in the mirror image. And I agree with Alissa on the Moira one. Cute or not, I think it'd scare Connor to see her like that. *snicker*
Alissa - *Adrien to Lena* - "Now I see why you're so successfull killing vampires... There's not a single one with their self-respect intact that would take you seriously."
robokitty - *lol* I love that pic of "Esteban". And I can just imagine why he'd want Leigh washing that one; lots of bending over.
Here's one of Adrien. Like with Leigh, there are quite a few, but few of them are suitable for this site. Incidently, I've actually used the face from this pic for him, but... the whole pic itself is soooo not Adrien;
Alissa - Hahaha, I love slave Princess Leia Dylan! That costume would really catch Donnie's attention in a major nerd way. Also... ehhhhh... Josh looks very spousal abusey in the pic. O.o Unexpected for such a pretty boy.
Ghani - Aoede looks a lot like Camerian Diaz in that pic. And that pic of Lolita Moira is excellent. Lola senses some niche competition.
*Adrien to Lena* - "Now I see why you're so successfull killing vampires... There's not a single one with their self-respect intact that would take you seriously."
Atropa - Oh god, I was hoping to see that aviators & pseudo jock strap pic of Adrien again!
And, well... *maybe* he'd deliver! He could take a whole bottle of viagra, make that come hithery face, then fall asleep with a raging hardon? Compromise, right?
Donnie... the bubblegum gangsta.
*edit* Alexis: "I totally wore out this pussy, and it has BARBS on its penis." *smokey look*
I'm having much the same trouble with Tyler as Alissa is having with Lena/Alexis, but... Here's one that I figure might be rather ooc, partly because of the clothes, and partly because of the whole... vibe. Tyler would never be caught dead posing as a sexy prettyboy.
'Oh hey... Yeah, I was just moisturizing my chest when you dropped by.'
Also, just because robokitty kind of sort of almost requested it... and against my better judgement, cuz Adrien would kill me. (Sorry for censoring it, but I figured I'd rather be safe than sorry, when it comes to the picture rules here);
