Hey all,

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.

I’ll start with one of Esteban and save the rest for later:

Lol, this is a great idea. And now I see what you mean, and yup, perfectly understandable :P

Ever imagine Dylan doing this:

AtropaMandragora
18th Dec 2009, 7:06 PM
*lol* Like Alissa said, this is a great idea. :D

Valerian (there aren't too many pics of his portrayal, so I had to make do with what I could find);

Alissa - Well... at least Dylan still looks all cute and Brady Bunch about having a gun and trying to shoot someone, right? :D 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
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/oocdonnie3.jpg


and just so we run the gamut here, Donnie as a singing & dancing dinosaur:

18th Dec 2009, 8:30 PM
robokitty - *lmao* That last one rocks!

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:

Alissa888
18th Dec 2009, 8:50 PM
Robokitty - LOL, okay, that trumped it up. Ever feel Esteban would be assured enough about his sexuality to do that? I'm sure there's an opening in the football team...

And LMAO, poor Donnie!

Atropa - Comment is spot on ;)

So, this is how Lara competes with Dominic:

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84/Alissa888/nat-banner-closer.jpg

And one day, Matt will push Natalie to this:

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 :D


Here's an OOC Lola as a nerd with bad hair and no cleavages:

19th Dec 2009, 7:50 PM
Damian completely ooc, because as much as he may love himself, he has a far more refined way of expressing it;

http://aboutthat.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/psycho1.jpg

robo - I just had to go with that one. :D 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

FurryPanda
20th Dec 2009, 12:00 AM
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?

robokitty
20th Dec 2009, 4:41 AM
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 :p )


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? :lovestruc

Alissa888
20th Dec 2009, 12:24 PM
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

Ghanima Atreides
20th Dec 2009, 12:45 PM
LOL this thread is brilliant! :D 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 :lol:

Here are mine:

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/AeodePrompt1.jpg

Aeode, the Myspace camwhore edition

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/MelodyPrompt1.jpg

Melody, apparently trying to match styles with Valerian up there

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/MoiraPrompt1.jpg

And Moira, auditioning for a Lolita remake :wtf:

Alissa888
20th Dec 2009, 1:14 PM
LOL @ Moira! A misguided attempt to hang onto her youth there :P 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:

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84/Alissa888/army-wives-fuller20-1.jpg

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:

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84/Alissa888/Adriana-Lima-83.jpg

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....

AtropaMandragora
20th Dec 2009, 1:32 PM
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;

http://www.123allcelebs.com/pics/andrei_andrei/1andreiandrei_jpg.jpg
'Please ravage me. Rawr.'

Alissa888
20th Dec 2009, 3:48 PM
LOL, what a tease. Especially when everyone knows he won't be bothered to deliver :P

Ghanima Atreides
20th Dec 2009, 3:55 PM
I bet a certain blonde would jump to the opportunity :P Also, is Alexis/Lena hunting vampires in a strip club there? :P

Bryce looks very unlike herself in that pic indeed, which is part of the reason why I chose it; plus the idea of Aeode with blond, scene-y hair amuses me.

Alissa888
20th Dec 2009, 4:11 PM
Has Aeode always worn her hair like that?

Oh, and her reply to Adrien's invite is aptly summed up as:

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84/Alissa888/Adriana-33-adriana-lima-757628_1280.jpg

And yeah... even if she did, I hope to God she'd wear something that looked less like she went rummaging through the recycling bin, lol.

robokitty
20th Dec 2009, 4:23 PM
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. :lol:


*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."
:rofl:

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.
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/oocdonnie4.jpg




*edit* Alexis: "I totally wore out this pussy, and it has BARBS on its penis." *smokey look*

Ghanima Atreides
20th Dec 2009, 4:27 PM
No, it used to be longer but still her natural red curls. She cuts it short now because it's convenient.

Alissa - LOL yeah but she'd probably get away with it at an anime cosplay.

Adrien is so oblivious to all the underlying sexual tension that seems to follow him around, it's funny :P

As for another un-Aeodeish hairstyle, well a very un-Aeodeish everything, really...

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/AeodePrompt2.jpg

Her Stepford disguise ;)

EDIT:

Ha! Donnie actually makes gangsta look cute. *brain asplodes*

Alissa888
20th Dec 2009, 4:39 PM
LOL, Gangsta Donnie actually works... if all gangsters were like him, the world would be a lol-worthy place.

Oh. My. God. I know it's unintended, but that version of Aeode (pretty though she is) would probably succeed in scaring Claudia. She'd think Aeode was up to something for sure.

And Robokitty - well, he did ask to be ravaged, so it's not even a compromise.
And LOL, OOC comment aside, it's true to form.

robokitty
21st Dec 2009, 5:40 AM
Ghani - holy crap, Stepford Aoede is super creepy...



Donnie has sooo many OOC-ish pics. I just love his PB's weird bubblegum badass super nerdcore 90s hair style.

Sienna - jailbird? Someone just told her she can't have her makeup..

AtropaMandragora
21st Dec 2009, 4:33 PM
*lol* Poor Sienna!

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.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h279/khkgj/SPF01.jpg?t=1261408711
'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);

http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss68/mandragoratropa/AdrienJoke.jpg
'Where is that odd breeze coming from...?'

Ghanima Atreides
21st Dec 2009, 4:43 PM
Even though I've seen it before...the jockstrap, the aviators...oh God. xDD

Tyler has quite the Chippendale vibe going on in that pic....LOL

Sienna's lucky though, she looks good without makeup too.

Alissa888
21st Dec 2009, 10:56 PM
Aww, lol, poor Sienna! I agree with Ghani, though, she still looks good dishevelled.

Tyler... lol, he still makes it work.

Adrien - :rofl: I've seen it before, but it still gets me.
Lena: So, uh... when you said you used to work undercover...?

AtropaMandragora
21st Dec 2009, 11:12 PM
Ghani - Except he actually has hair on his chest. Hasn't shaved it, chippendales style.

Alissa - "Hey, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do". ;)

Alissa888
21st Dec 2009, 11:17 PM
Atropa - Now, I'm getting images of the girls holding down Tyler to wax him... laidback though he is, I can't see him letting them :P

Lena: Duty calls? And you just took it lying down? I'm sure it was really hard for you.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y84/Alissa888/k2fz28.jpg
Olivia, on one of those days she doesn't want anyone to know about.

AtropaMandragora
22nd Dec 2009, 5:42 PM
Alissa - Well, he'd probably let them try, because he wouldn't really mind wrestling them for a bit. But yeah, can't see him letting them succeed. :p
And I just love that pic of "Olivia". *s* But you knew that already.

Also, figured I'd say this here, since it is an occ thread; I'm going back to work tomorrow - day shift - and am then working the night shift pretty much all through Xmas and New Years, so... posts from me might be a little scarce. Hopefully will be able to write at least one per day, but there are no guarantees. Just so you guys know. :)

Ghanima Atreides
22nd Dec 2009, 9:35 PM
Ahahaha, Alissa, Olivia isn't the only one! Check out Moira in grandma's shirt and bad hair :P

kelsa - awww, poor Sienna! Esteban is hoping she gets to have conjugal visits...

Atropa - *giggles* I love that pic of Adrien. Even though it's super gay, Lola crushes on him so badly that she'd probably still be aroused by it. Tyler's pic is great too. He does look a bit like he's inviting some chicks to try waxing his chest for him.

Alissa - that pic of Olivia is sooo cute!

Ghani - wow, it's weird to see Moira so dressed down. Her IC pics are so glamorous.


Here's the new character, Cynthia, trying out the sexy lesbo stud look:

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful holiday! Now, for the next prompt...


OOC PROMPT 02: SLASHFEST

GOAL:
To write super-sexy/super-funny/super-godmoddy OOC slash. If you don’t know what “slash” means, it is when two (or three or four or more) characters who aren’t a “canon” romantic couple are paired together for hot action, wish-fulfillment, and mega-LULz.

PRIZE:
I’ll make a character banner as a prize for whoever fulfills the most slash requests. Members named robokitty are exempt from this prize. :p

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Reply to this thread with the pairings/tripling/+ that you’d like to see, and other participants will pick one (or more) to fulfill. It’s okay to fulfill your own wish, and it’s okay if more than one person fulfills the same wish.

Example:

My Slash Requests:
Adrien/Noah/Aeode
Esteban/JD
Matt/Marie-Elisabeth/Horse
Damian/Frankie
Donnie/Toaster

Btw, I'm writing a Donnie/Katie slash where they cyber it out on World of Warcraft. It's totally sick. *blah blah blah blah blah, lulz*


2) To fulfill slash wishes, you MAY post PG-13 slash stories by replying in this thread. However, due to the PG-13 nature of this board, DO NOT post your rated R or NC-17 slash stories here.

I’ve created a livejournal community called oocrp where you can post “adult” slash. It should be fairly easy to find by typing it into livejournal, but if you’re having problems getting there, then PM me for the link. You do not need a livejournal account to comment or join.

Feel free to post any questions/comments in this thread.

DUE DATE:
I’ll keep this prompt open for 2 weeks, tentatively. Depending on interest level, that time may expand or contract.



WISHLIST:
This post will be updated to keep a running list of slash requests, whether they have been fulfilled, and where to find them.

Ghanima Atreides
26th Dec 2009, 11:56 PM
LOL interesting theme! :P


Before I break my own brain thinking about that Aeode/Noah/Adrien scenario, I have a couple of suggestions of my own :P

-Noah/Valerian
-Claudia/Aeode
-Adrien/Damian
-Damian/Clone(s) of Himself


-Faye/Matt
-Lilith/Leigh seducing Katie (robokitty's suggestion)

AtropaMandragora
27th Dec 2009, 12:17 AM
Okay, Self-Center Central here, but... Dominic/Connor... :lovestruc Oh, and Lara/Lavinia. Dominic wouldn't know what to do with himself. :P

robokitty
27th Dec 2009, 4:38 AM
Thanks for posting the wishes, guys! I feel less creepy/guilty about writing dirty, dirty slash if it's for someone else :P





For those who checked the oocrp community beforehand, I changed the setup slightly so that new slash stories are posted as entries instead of comments (as a work-around to the character limit imposed on comments).

You can still make comments there w/out an account, but this means that anyone who wants to post a story NEEDS an LJ account. I created a sample account for this purpose:

Name: slashposter
Password: PM me for the password



Wishlist is updated, and I finished a totally porny slash post for Katie/Jude. Yay! I'm not sure what I'll write next... Damian/clones sounds like it'll be really funny, and Noah/Valerian? They're practically already there in slash territory :rofl:

AtropaMandragora
27th Dec 2009, 3:32 PM
robokitty - *lol* Oh Lord, that was one twisted slash fic. :rofl: Loved the ending though. Too funny.

As for Noah/Valerian; indeed, they're probably as close to some slash action as you can get, without actual slash action. He he. Though I suppose that would go for pretty much anyone, when it comes to Valerian. :p Oh, and Psyche will probably strangle me for this but... Archon/Valerian(/Roe).
Also, I have to say, I'm surprised you didn't list Damian/Phoenix. Or Damian/Phoenix/Lola. I thought that would have been on your wishlist. :p

Oh, and I was just thinking about the old Vipers' Nest RP, and... Isabella/Elena popped into my head. Talk about power struggle. And of of course, the scenario already addressed ooc in that thread; Josephine/Cesar/Marie-Elisabeth. ;)

Okay, I'll stop now.

Alissa888
27th Dec 2009, 4:14 PM
Atropa - regarding Lara/Lavinia... yes, he'd know exactly what to do with himself :P

Personally, I want to see Tyler/Josh, Octavien/Dimitri, Mercy/Cesar, Dimitri/Elena, Damian/Draco, Valerian/Phoenix
Lol, Damian/Phoenix is too easy... especially when you think of how imaginative they can get with the feeding rituals :P

AtropaMandragora
27th Dec 2009, 4:22 PM
Alissa - Hehe, true, he probably would have no trouble whatsoever knowing what to do with himself.
And oooh, Tyler/Josh, that's a nice one. Mercy/Cesar... Now that's another couple that, much like Matt/Aeode, I feel there's nooooo chemistry whatsoever there. Not even BAD chemistry. Mercy/Octavien however... And Cesar/Dimitri.... Those would both make sense. Sort of. As does Elena/Dimitri.

But wait... Damian and Draco? Wtf?? :blink: Where did that come from?

And yeah, I know Damian/Phoenix makes sense, but it all stems from a convo me and robokitty had about the matter. *s*

Alissa888
27th Dec 2009, 4:27 PM
LOL, Cesar/Dimitri would make sense? ...What did I miss?
And yeah, I can see Elena/Dimitri making sense.

Damian/Draco... lol, I don't know, but it would just be really funny to imagine Damian getting it on with a bird. Plus, it's a pure-bred bird and wouldn't tell anyone :P

And ah... okay.

Robokitty - Read the slashfic and :rolf:
a) Poor Natasha
b) Poor me!
Brilliant stuff.

AtropaMandragora
27th Dec 2009, 4:33 PM
Cesar and Dimitri butted heads on a more personal level than did Octavien and Dimitri. Octavien was mostly pissed at the King, and Dimitri was mostly just the messenger, whereas Dimitri and Cesar didn't see eye to eye regarding raising children. :P And there was more hidden venom between those two, whereas Octavien was rather upfront. To me, personally, the stuff that's underneath the surface would be more to work with. But that might just be me.

And yeah, Damian might get it on with a bird (http://onlineslangdictionary.com/definition+of/bird), but not that kind of bird! That's just.... disturbing... And not in the good way. (To me anyway. Seriously would not want to read that.) *s*

Lol, well, there are worse ways to settle and argument.

And ooh, another slash I want to see is Esteban/Lola. Pretty likely, I'd have thought.

robokitty
27th Dec 2009, 5:01 PM
Thanks guys. That ending seemed like the only appropriate way to finish the slashfic :lol:


And yeah... I definitely left out a bunch of pairings in the initial post, mostly because I could probably go on and on about different pairings I'd want to see and I wanted to finish writing my post already. Btw, Damian/Draco? :rofl: Draco's cloaca is rather tempting.



But, Phoenix/Damian = YES. They're practically there already if it weren't for social taboos and all. As for adding Lola into the mix... ehh... as long as it results in more LULz. I would imagine Lola *really* wanting in on the action, but she keeps getting ignored by the men :lol:

Also Matt/Esteban plz. Matt could pick up Esteban to fix his "pipes." Or Esteban could awkwardly ask Matt for crib notes regarding Sienna, resulting in a hands-on lesson. Or other ridiculous scenarios... whatever will bring these two lovebirds together. Natalie may or may not be lurking voyeuristically.




Wishlist updated. Let me know if I missed anything.

Okay, I've been really trying to get my mind out of the gutter, but every time I come into this thread, it's epic fail. (Gee, I wonder why). Matt/Esteban.... Yeah, definitely one I'd like to see. Or wait, Esteban/J.D. ganging up on Matt.

Also, I've forgotten the most obvious one of them all, which has already been discussed several times; Lena/Lola seducing Adrien. Team effort and all. ;)

Alissa888
27th Dec 2009, 6:37 PM
Lol, okay, Tyler and Josh slash has been posted.

Updated wishlist.

And that Josh/Tyler fic? :heyhey: Awesome. I demand MOAR. And I wonder at Josh's predilection for overweight, balding school deans in granny panties.



Esteban/JD ganging up on Matt? Awww... poor Matt better take his vitamins and hope he heals quickly for that encounter.

And Lena/Lola/Adrien... I can't believe I forgot that one! Adrien really does have loads of sexual tension that follows him around everywhere, from men and women alike.

27th Dec 2009, 9:03 PM
I got one more: Dominic/Aeode, only because despite my best efforts to keep them out of eachother's pants in my Sims game, I failed again and again! XD (ACR really is great for slash, lol)

Also, I approve of Cesar/Marie-Elisabeth/Josephine

*goes to read now*

AtropaMandragora
27th Dec 2009, 10:06 PM
Just thought of another (along with Ghani :D ); Beyonca and Adrien. Yes, Adrien again (I suppose you guys have a point about all that sexual tension), and it is kind of an obvious one, but... hey, they've already done the verbal tango for a while, they might as well just get the rest over with. ;)

ETA;

Ghani just made an excellent point, about there being no MC pairings listed, so I of course have to add the one we all know I was going to add; Gabriel and Kate! :D

Alissa888
27th Dec 2009, 11:38 PM
Ooh, I'd like to see Beyonca and Adrien too, actually. It seems a pretty natural pairing. Lol, Adrien really needs to wisen up to this inherent sexual tension around him!

And yes, yes, yes, Gabe and Kate - lol, she should have abandoned whatshisname (Caleb?) and got in on with him in the surgery :P

AtropaMandragora
27th Dec 2009, 11:46 PM
Wellllll, last post I wrote on the encounter had Gabriel arranging for someone else to keep and eye on Caleb, no? ;)

As for Beyonca/Adrien... I get the impression that Beyonca much rather prefers to watch. Maybe Adrien's sexual tension will catch up to him in an enormous Roman style orgy, and Beyonca will take notes?

innocenteyes
28th Dec 2009, 3:42 AM
Beyonca does like to sit back and watch, but Adrien seems to always get the curiosity in her going. It would interesting to see what she would do. She would probably do something before she relized what she was doing.

AtropaMandragora
28th Dec 2009, 3:22 PM
robokitty - *lol* Adrien ravaged by various women... What an image! :D Or I guess maybe I should say various people, given some of the suggestions here.

By the way, I think I have one more suggestion to throw out there, because... while it might not seem really ooc, it kind of is, because given Matt's difficulties to come to terms with the whole thing, it might be quite a while before Josh actually gets to take things all the way. So: Matt/Josh. ;)
(But I'm partial, because I love those two to bits, and so love to read about them. *lol*)

robokitty
28th Dec 2009, 10:50 PM
Alright, adding Adrien/Roman orgy and Matt/Josh to the list.

You know you love reading it, so let's all write some more slash, people! :D YAR YAR HUMP HUMP.

Oh my.
I read the Katie/Jude one.
I LoL'd. Don't know how I'll work my usual hat tip in, but it shall be done. And that was completely OOC... Katie doesn't know what to do with spare time because she makes sure she doesn't have any.
Oh poor dear.

I don't know if anyone remembers the Victorian times RP, but gads I loved that RP so much, so I'll be posting a Thomas/Amanda one later, and maybe a James/Eugenie.

Just figured I'd say that I do intend to contribute, but that I need to find the time to do it. I'm working the nightshift until the 4th, and thus am working during my most creative hours, so all writing is taking me longer than usual, since I'm usually not feeling it during the day.
But, I hope you'll leave the LJ up and open even after you post the next prompt, right, robokitty?

robokitty
6th Jan 2010, 6:26 AM
Oooh, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with, Atropa. Give Matt some TLC instead of... errr... manipulative, abusive LC.

And yep, I'm planning on keeping the LJ up. Let's keep the slash coming anyway, right? ;)

That's the 2 weeks... gone already! Thanks to everyone who participated... even if you didn't manage to get around to writing a slash story, thanks for reading and for boucing ideas around. I'll leave the oocrp community up for posterity... in case anyone would like to post some slash in the future :)

Alissa - That last story... between Damian/Claudia was :rofl: Loved it. Also, let me know which character you'd like me to make a banner for as a prize for the slashfest.


So, since we've spent the last few weeks thinking about OOC relationships and our characters, for the next prompt....

PROMPT 03: DATING PERSONA

Take the following dating persona quiz for your character and post the results here:

If you don't have an okcupid account, then you can use the following name and password to take the test:

username: oocrpg

Note: For the part where you have to write in 3 adjectives to describe you, I just mash the keyboard. It doesn't affect the outcome.



Here is my result for Donnie:

The Mixed Messenger
Deliberate Brutal Love Dreamer (DBLD)

Just...take...the...fucking...flower...darling. The Mixed Messenger apologizes again.

You’re looking for love, but you’ll always maintain your independence. You’re prepared for a real commitment, but it’s also likely that you’re ambitious, which creates a certain romantic tension and ambivalence within you. So although you can be very affectionate to someone, you are also capable of pulling some dubious shit.

In a relationship, you’re usually the emotional leader. With your friends, you’re a little bit more part of the pack. You’re well-liked but you’re not the uninhibited type, so the spotlight’s often on someone else. In both social and romantic situations, however, you almost always get what you want. Influencing people is something you do very well.

Consider: The Priss (DBLD)
Always Avoid: The Playstation (RGSM) The Peach (RGLM)

Ghanima Atreides
8th Jan 2010, 11:38 PM
eeek, Dominic is so not Boy Next Door :P

For Aeode - The Window Shopper


Loving, hopeful, open. Likely to carry on an romance from afar. You are The Window Shopper.

You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life. You’re a genuinely sweet person, not saccharine at all, so it’s likely that the relationships you have had and will have will be happy ones. You’ve had a fair amount of love experience for your age, and there’ll be much more to come.

Part of why we know this is that, of all female types, you are the most prone to sudden, ferocious crushes. Your results indicate that you’re especially capable of obsessing over a guy you just met. Obviously, passion like this makes for an intense existence. It can also make for soul-destroying letdowns.

Your ideal match is someone who’ll love you back with equal fire, and someone you’ve grown to love slowly. A self-involved or pessimistic man is especially bad. Though you’re drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.


LOL - avoid artists at all costs ;) she was right on the money there, eh Valerian?

Being open to sudden and ferocious crushes that may lead to love - yes. Obsessing over a guy she just met? Not so much. xD

Your ideal match is someone who’ll love you back with equal fire, and someone you’ve grown to love slowly - that's absolutely true though.

AtropaMandragora
8th Jan 2010, 11:49 PM
I think it's the relationship questions that affect the result, but even so, it's still off. I mean, there were the drug questions, kinky stuff questions, cheating questions, etc etc, and those really should've affected the result too. But apparently not as much as the fact that he's been in the same relationship for over three years. *shrugs*

Daniel's was far more accurate though;
http://www.okcupid.com/personality?type=DGLD&g=1&o=1


The Slow Dancer
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLD)

Steady, reliable, and cradling her tenderly. Take a deep breath, and let it out real easy...you are The Slow Dancer

Your focus is love, not sex, and for your age, you have average experience. But you’re a great, thoughtful guy, and your love life improves every year. There’s also a powerful elimination process working in your favor: most Playboy types get stuck raising unwanted kids before you even begin settling down. The women left over will be hot and yours. Your ideal woman is someone intimate, intelligent, and very supportive.

While you’re not exactly the life of the party, you do thrive in small groups of smart people. Your circle of friends is extra tight and it’s HIGHLY likely they’re just like you. You appreciate symmetry in relationships.


Consider:
The Maid of Honor (DGLM), The Sonnet (DGLD)

Always Avoid:
The Battleaxe (DBLM)


As for Valerian; awwww. He'd love her unconditionally. And really, the part about her being attracted to artists seems to be the part that is most off, to me. :)

Alissa888
9th Jan 2010, 1:03 AM
Awwww! Daniel's is too cute! And yeah, Lara's been rubbing off on Dominic, methinks.

Lol, Aeode prone to sudden, ferocious crushes? :P

robokitty
9th Jan 2010, 1:27 AM
I see Dominic as being on a sliding scale based on whether he's closer to Lara or Lavinia.


Lara (Boy Next Door)---------------(Pool Boy)------------------(Play Boy)Lavinia

If I had to peg him somewhere, he'd be at pool boy.



As for Aoede... "window shopper" sound more like what she might've been like pre-family massacre? *shrugs*


Is anyone surprised by Esteban's result?



The Hornivore
Random Brutal Sex Master (RBSM)

Don’t ever marry, you’re The Hornivore. Roaming, sexual, subhuman.

The Hornivores (you) are some of the most screwed up and naughty beings in the Universe. And their numbers are growing, mostly due to skipped or misused contraception. You care not. There’s one thing you want, one sole need.

Half manly, half bestial, you act on instinct, and animal charisma smoothes the way. It’s unlikely you’re driven by much other than your own selfish, orgasmic requirements. Your appearance and personality have evolved for the hunt. Ass beckons, you oblige.

For the record, you can happily bang all personality types, however your match percentages might be low with the kinder, more sensible people of the world, purely because they all wish to avoid you. Good luck to them.

*s* Yeah, that must be it; Lara rubbing off on Dominic. Though I admit, there ARE some romantic streaks in his personality, but still... So not The Boy Next Door. He'd flip if he found out. *s* And I can't really see too many similarities with the Pool Boy either, to be honest. He's playful and slightly immature, but he's also aggressive.

Alissa888
9th Jan 2010, 1:55 AM
LOL @ Esteban's. True to form.
Matt... :lol: Poor Josh!

My characters thus far:

Lena:


The Sudden Departure
Random Brutal Love Master (RBLM)


Sweet. Dear. Loving. At Gate 18. Final call. You are The Sudden Departure.

You’ve been in a lot of serious relationships. More than a few have ended ugly. Uglily. Whatever. Our guess is that you’re a really fantastic girl who doesn’t really know what she wants, and you’ve broken a few hearts as a result. You fall for people easily, and you enjoy the feeling of falling in love, but once you’re there, either boredom or the old “grass is greener” syndrome sets in. The mind wanders, and with it goes the flesh. And then the toiletries.

We know you’re not the classic “love ’em and leave ’em” type, at least not in a purely sexual sense. You have too many serious bonding tendencies for that. But even though you’re theoretically looking to settle down, you don’t settle long on one person. “Serial monogamist” is probably something you hear a lot. “Emotionally loose” is another way to put it. To the poor guys eating your dust and sniffing your panties, it doesn’t really make much difference. Of course, it’s not really your fault that people get hurt. You have every right to move on when you choose.

Personally, I'd have stuck her in The Nymph (http://www.okcupid.com/personality?type=DBSD&g=2&o=1); way more fitting. Bonding tendencies, her?

Natalie:


The Stiletto
Deliberate Brutal Sex Master (DBSM)

Edgy. Physical. Devastating. You are The Stiletto, of all types, the most likely to be a dominatrix and the least likely to apologize.

Sex is your object, and you have a LOT of it. Doubtless, you’ve figured out how easy it is for a dominant, assertive woman to have as many and whichever partners as she chooses. You’re in control, you know what you want, and you get it, right there. It’s highly likely you have a nice body, and it’s even more likely we’re getting all turned on right now writing this.

You’re generally careful with your actions and words, but your test answers indicate you’ve hurt some people, drawn some blood. This means one of two things. Either you’re calculating, and pain is just part of your game plan, or hurting the occasional guy is just the unfortunate, but natural, byproduct of your liberated sexual existence.

Our tendency is to believe the latter: you’re willing to engage men on a basic sexual level, and clearly they’re attracted to you. It’s understandable that a few might get overly attached, and sometimes harshness is the only way for you to escape: you’ve got to cut your way out. After all, it’s not emotional bondage you’re looking for right now.

Lol... didn't mean her to be this brutal.

Josh:


The Slow Dancer
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLD)

Steady, reliable, and cradling her tenderly. Take a deep breath, and let it out real easy...you are The Slow Dancer

Your focus is love, not sex, and for your age, you have average experience. But you’re a great, thoughtful guy, and your love life improves every year. There’s also a powerful elimination process working in your favor: most Playboy types get stuck raising unwanted kids before you even begin settling down. The women left over will be hot and yours. Your ideal woman is someone intimate, intelligent, and very supportive.

While you’re not exactly the life of the party, you do thrive in small groups of smart people. Your circle of friends is extra tight and it’s HIGHLY likely they’re just like you. You appreciate symmetry in relationships.

Really, really accurate.

Dylan:


The Sonnet
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLD)

Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?

Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They’re conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that’s okay, because you’re very choosy with your affections anyway. You’d absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.

Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You’re already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there’s no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.

You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

Again, lol, perfect.

AtropaMandragora
9th Jan 2010, 8:05 PM
Okay, since most of my characters are guys, I of course had to give Leigh a go;

The Playstation
Random Gentle Sex Master (RGSM)

Easy to turn on. Hard to beat. You are The Playstation.

You’re a nice girl, and you have lots of sex. It’s therefore highly likely that you’re attractive, and you’re certainly outgoing & friendly. Plus, this healthy physical attitude of yours indicates deeper emotional well-being and stability. Unheard of. When guys dare to dream, they dream of you.

You don’t get attached too easily, and, to wit, you’re not necessarily looking for something long-term right now. That’s a bigger asset than you know. Though, physically speaking, you’re open to anything, you’re keeping your emotional side well-protected. This means there won’t be a lot of wreckage to clean up whenever you decide to settle down.

In the meantime, the men you share yourself with actually respect you. Like them, you enjoy sex for its own sake and don’t need any other validation for pleasure than pleasure itself. Hopefully, you have the good sense to blow off anyone who thinks less of you for that. Usually, this is the part of the description where we offer some life-correcting advice, but honestly, we can’t think of anything about you we’d change. Keep on f*cking, partner.

Consider:
Anyone else

Always Avoid:
The Mixed Messenger (DBLD)


Most of it fits, I guess, but "...deeper emotional well-being and stability" and "... the men you share yourself actually respect you"? Uhmm... Not really. *s*

10th Jan 2010, 12:16 AM
Sorry for double post, but I had to do a couple of more. Adrien got The Slow Dancer (which I don't agree with either), and Valerian got the following;

The Gentleman
Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLM)

Steady & mature. You are The Gentleman.

For anyone looking for an even-keeled, considerate lover, you’re their man. You’re sophisticated. You know what you want both in a relationship and outside of it. You have a substantial romantic side, and you’re experienced enough sexually to handle yourself in that arena, too. Your future relationships will be long-lasting; you’re classic “marrying material,” a prize in the eyes of many.

It’s possible that behind it all, you’re a bit of a male slut. Your best friends know that in relationships you’re fundamentally sex-driven. You’re a safe, reliable guy, who does get laid. In a lot of ways, you’re like a well-worn, comfortable pair of socks. Did you ever jack off into one of those? All the time.

Your ideal mate is NOT a nut-job. She is giving and loving, like you, but also experienced.

robokitty
10th Jan 2010, 4:26 AM
Alissa - those results looks fairly spot-on, though with Lena and bonding tendencies... ehhh... only if there's blood bonding going on.

And there we have it in writing, robokitty; Donnie and Leigh just do not click. :D

I'm sure I could find ONE test out there that says they're perfect for each other.

As for Adrien being a slow dancer... I imagine that the test is especially bad at encapsulating someone who not only has had a major personality shift in the past, but has also lived for generations and generations.



Lola's result is pretty good. I always imagined her finding love more important than sex, but unable to really express the former without the latter due to her being (figuratively) fucked up.

The Sudden Departure
Random Brutal Love Master (RBLM)


Sweet. Dear. Loving. At Gate 18. Final call. You are The Sudden Departure.

You’ve been in a lot of serious relationships. More than a few have ended ugly. Uglily. Whatever.

Regarding Donnie and Leigh - Physics law of opposites?

I just read the description again, and given that it says "in the purely sexual sense", so I'd have to agree with Lena's result; love is more important. She's just never been in love and has the secret superpower of attracting dangerous attention.
Bonding tendencies therefore... she gets attached, it scares her, she withdraws emotionally. I think Lena's incapacity to bond is because it went so horribly wrong the last time.

For Lola, I always thought her looseness with sex was due to her childhood abuse? Didn't think she'd be the one to suddenly up and leave, though, given how she always mentions she's the one who's been used in it all?

Lara's came as something of a surprise:


The Window Shopper
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLD)

Loving, hopeful, open. Likely to carry on an romance from afar. You are The Window Shopper.

You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life. You’re a genuinely sweet person, not saccharine at all, so it’s likely that the relationships you have had and will have will be happy ones. You’ve had a fair amount of love experience for your age, and there’ll be much more to come.

Part of why we know this is that, of all female types, you are the most prone to sudden, ferocious crushes. Your results indicate that you’re especially capable of obsessing over a guy you just met.

Your ideal match is someone who’ll love you back with equal fire, and someone you’ve grown to love slowly. A self-involved or pessimistic man is especially bad. Though you’re drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.

Avoid artists, Atropa? :P I guess most of it fits, but I don't know, I never really imaged Lara as quite so intense, but that said, a lot of the traits described are true to form.
Didn't think Valerian would be The Gentleman.

innocenteyes
12th Jan 2010, 1:38 AM
Beyonca got this. I think it sounds right for her.



The Intern
Deliberate Gentle Sex Dreamer (DGSD)
Capable. Trustworthy. Carnal. The Intern.

From our experience, Interns are nice girls who would really, really like us to come on to them. They, like you, must be looking for sex, preferably from someone good-looking and successful. So... what are you doing later? Oh, okay, cool. Well, maybe next time? Okay, okay, jeez.

The thing is, you’re a little bit quiet, so men think you’re waiting for them to start things. You do like sex a lot, they’re right about that, but few of them realize you’re a genuinely thoughtful person.

You’re choosy, not wanting to get mixed up with just anyone. Girls can get away with this kind of selectiveness for some reason. Most guys have to take whatever’s lying around, passed out.

You’re not necessarily looking for a steady relationship right now; that’s cool. Be careful to avoid people trying to tie you down to anything other than bedposts.

Colorful, but unpicked. You are The Wild Rose.

Prone to bouts of cynicism, sarcasm, and thorns, you excite a certain kind of man. Hoping to gather you up, he flirts and winks and asks you out, ultimately professing his love. Then you make him bleed. Why? Because you’re the rare, independent, self-sufficient kind of woman who does want love, but not from a weakling.

You don’t seem to take yourself too seriously, and that’s refreshing. You aren’t uptight; you don’t over-plan. Romance-wise, sex isn’t a top priority—a true relationship would be preferable. For your age, you haven’t had a lot of bonafide love experience, though, and this kind of gets to core of the issue. You’re very selective.

The problem is them, not you, right? You have lofty standards that few measure up to. You’re out there all right, but not to be picked up by just anyone.


I'm out and about today, but I'll have the next prompt posted by tonight.

Okay, I know we've moved on to a new prompt, and will be moving on to yet another one soon, but as I kind of promised people I'd at least try to write a slash, I did. So, Matt/Josh slash posted. Sorry it took me so long, but... I think I got a little carried away... :D
Don't say I didn't warn you.
Oh, and thanks to Alissa for the help with the cut title. :)

Atropa - Yay! Great story :D I'm really sleepy now, but I'll post a more in-depth comment on the journal after I wake up tomorrow.



PROMPT 004: 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.

robokitty - Thanks. :) Took me quite a while to write. *s*


Cartoon Character:

Valerian: Ferdinand the Bull

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_t9pl9Dh5gGQ/So6U9G0i8dI/AAAAAAAAGcY/vSBG7r4G4SU/s400/FerdinandBull+0268b+1ORIG.jpg

The character: Ferdinand the Bull is a young, peaceloving bull, who unlike his friends prefers to sit under a cork tree and smell the pretty flowers, rather than fighting and messing about. He has no desire whatsoever to end up in the bullfighting ring, yet still does by accident. There, however, fighting is still the last thing on his mind, and he drives the matador to throw a hissy fit when he just won't do anything but sit in the ring and smell the flowers thrown to the matador by the audience.

Explaining why he's similar to Valerian might be a little redundant, since the above pretty much already has it covered, but anyway; peaceloving and would rather occupy himself with pretty things, than fight? It's Valerian in a nutshell.

Oh, and for those interested, you can see the whole short movie on YouTube here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGTVRbpAuRo).

Lol, I can quite see that, actually. I'd heard little of it before, though.

Dylan - SO Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

Belle lives with her father, an inventor. She's lovely, compassionate, and willing to help anyone, but also unafraid to speak her mind. She's also really far from superficial and she can see the beauty in the beast.
Granted, Dylan's never been in a relationship with... say Quasimodo, but ability to see the good in everyone? Oh, and she's a total romantic idealist. And a bit of a sap to her abusive (he might be emo, but that doesn't excuse the snapping and the yelling) boyfriend because she's trying to be understanding about him being conflicted. Mark, anyone?
It's perfect.

Lena - Some amalgamation of Esmerelda and Puss In Boots.

Esmerelda - Purely for this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqXfwc_3mq4). And also her capability of attracting just detrimental attentions from far and wide (Christian, Sabin, Fitzroy, even Damian (that one in a purely utilitarian sense, but if you lend it, the girl is a walking malevolence magnet)). She stands up for her beliefs, and the rights of others the whole time.
Puss in Boots because... lol, it's just too fitting; assassin, who then befriends the target, clever, adventurous, suave, fun, wantonly flirty and so prone to using looks to achieve a goal.

Natalie - ...Lola from Shark Tale? Lola, being a sexy fish and all, is scary scheming. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and the lengths Lola goes to get back at whatshisname... callous, but fits.

Although the image of Valerian as a bull amuses me, that's spot on, Atropa! Plus the Toreador connection :D

Dylan - Belle: yup, definitely. Didn't think about the relationship connection but now that you mention it, I can see it.

LOL, Lena as Puss in Boots is an interesting thought, but I can see how it fits.


Mine are as follows, so far:

Aeode - Anastasia from the 1997 musical, especially during her Anya phase

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/anastasia.jpg

The character: Anastasia's family was killed in the Russian revolution with the help of Rasputin, who'd sold his soul in return for the power he needed to destroy the Romanovs. She escaped with the help of a servant boy but as she was struggling to board a train and flee, she fell and hit her head, thus losing her memory and identity. She was then taken to an orphanage where she grew up as Anya.

Anya is portrayed as stubborn, bold and headstrong but she is also kind, playful and determined. She's rather more positive and less cynical than Aeode, but otherwise nearly spot on. Then there's the family massacre similarity, plus being hunted by an undead creature with dark magic-like powers who is determined to kill the last of the Romanovs, just like Aeode is hunted by the Sabbat. The fact that Anastasia owes her life to someone's chance intervention also fits.



Melody - Ariel from The Little Mermaid

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/ariel.jpg

Ariel is a dreamer who yearns for a different life. She falls in love with a man from a world other than hers and pursues him in defiance of her father. Need I say more? Melody did the same thing; she was unhappy in her life before meeting Valerian, because her family pushed her to go through med school when her heart wasn't in it, and she defied them by dropping out and eloping with Valerian, her romantic ideal.



Elena Sanchez - A mixture of Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and the Queen from Snow White

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/maleficentqueen.jpg


Maleficent because of her personality: calm, intelligent, cruel and without a sense of humour. The Queen because of her vanity, and her scheming ways which fit Elena better than Maleficent's: she would sooner arrange to eliminate a thorn in her side right away than bother with elaborate curses that take years to complete. Both of them are power-hungry though, and that certainly fits.


Lilith - Nemi


http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/nemi.jpg


The character: Nemi is the main character of a Norwegian comic strip by Lise Myhre.

Nemi is a "tough girl" with an attitude, is not afraid to speak her mind and more often than not in confrontational ways: blunt rejections of would-be one-night stands at the pub are not uncommon. At the same time she's irresponsible with money, her relationships are mostly on the casual sex level, she likes to have fun and is portrayed as a misfit that has trouble adjusting to the world around her. She can also be rather lonely, and has only one really good friend.

Lilith is pretty much like that as well, but not quite as utterly childish as Nemi can be, and while Nemi gets along well with kids, Lilith doesn't really. They both find "serious and committed relationships" more trouble than they're worth, but while Nemi has an underlying innocence about her, Lilith is more worldly, shall we say.


That's it so far, I'll try to come up with some matches for the others :P

Cartoon Character:

Damian Alexander III: Montgomery Burns, from The Simpsons/The Brain, from Pinky & The Brain

http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss68/mandragoratropa/MrBurnsTheBrain.jpg

Stole/Edited this from Wikipedia, on Montgomery Burns;
"Charles Montgomery Burns, usually referred to as Mr. Burns, is a recurring fictional character and antagonist in the animated television series The Simpsons, Mr. Burns is the intensely evil owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, and is Homer Simpson's boss. He is attended at almost all times by Waylon Smithers, his loyal and sycophantic aide, advisor, confidant and secret admirer. He is generally considered to be the primary antagonist on the show.

Although originally conceived as a one-dimensional, recurring villain who might occasionally enter the Simpsons' lives and wreak some sort of havoc, Burns' popularity has led to his repeated inclusion in episodes. He is a caricature of Corporate America in his unquenchable desire to increase his own wealth and power, inability to remember his employees' names and lack of concern for their safety and well-being. Reflecting his extreme age, Burns is given to expressing dated humor, making references to pre-1950 popular culture, and aspiring to apply obsolete technology to everyday life."


From Wikipedia, on The Brain;
"The Brain [...] is highly intelligent and develops plans for global domination using all sorts of methods, from politics to inventions, to achieve his mission. [...] He appears to be coldly unemotional and speaks in a deadpan manner. Nevertheless, Brain has a very subtle sense of humor, still possesses some Christmas spirit, and has even fallen in love once. Various episodes have compared Brain to Don Quixote, and Napoleon Bonaparte.

Intellectually, Brain sees his inevitable rise to power as beneficial to the world rather than mere megalomania. An example of this being what he truly believes can be seen in Wakko's Wish where he stated to Pinky "We're on our way to fame, fortune and a world that's a better place for all," showing while he does envision himself becoming world leader, he wants to make everything greater for everyone."

Granted, there are some things that don't apply, such as the part about Mr Burns using obsolete technology, and also being intensely evil, but for the most part, it all fits. Right down to both Mr Burns and The Brain having their adoring assistant (Phoenix). ;) Damien isn't evil, and he does believe with him in charge, the world would be a better place. *s*

Alissa- Lena as Puss in Boots... OMG... very funny mental picture.


Ghani - Melody as Ariel is really cute. I can see that one a lot.

Atropa - Argh! I was thinking of using The Brain for Donnie, but now I need to brainstorm more! Btw, I love Mr. Burns for Damien, hehehe. Especially since he's always with his (maybe gay) man-servant.




I have a couple ideas for my characters... need to think a tiny bit more before I post them.

Ghanima Atreides
21st Jan 2010, 5:15 PM
I gotta admit, I'm having hella trouble coming up with matches for the rest of my girls, possibly because I haven't really watched cartoons in years...anyway I still had an idea for Moira that's too good not to mention, and book/movie character is close enough, right?

Moira - Galadriel from LOTR

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/galadriel.jpg

Soft-spoken, ancient, wise, ethereal, carrying the weight of immortality and the loneliness of an inescapable burden, in a high ranking position among her kind.

And, she has a dark side too:

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/Galadriel_green_3.jpg

Galadriel also looks and behaves distinctly inhuman, even moreso than Moira who still holds on to her humanity, so I guess the even better match would be with Moira a couple of centuries from now, except she remains essentially "good" while Moira becomes less and less so.

ETA: Oh! There is actually a LOTR cartoon too, so technically she's also a cartoon character :p

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Velvet_Velour/RPGs/800px-Lotr-2-2652-galadriel.jpg

AtropaMandragora
21st Jan 2010, 5:37 PM
robokitty - Aw, but you can still use The Brain for Donnie? I bet there are traits that suit Donnie better than they do Damian, and vice versa?

Ghani - Ah, I can totally see that. :) Moira does have that whole vibe about her.
And I know what you mean about having a hard time coming up with characters for the rest... I've been pondering and pondering, but I just can't think of any cartoons that fit my other characters. For a while I was contemplating Quasimodo (the Disney version) for Adrien, because of the alienation and how unused he is to human interaction, but as Alissa pointed out, Quasimodo possesses far too much innocence and naiveté to match.

21st Jan 2010, 6:34 PM
I cant think of any for Beyonca :(. I guess I will have to look threw my kids movies. lol.

robokitty
22nd Jan 2010, 1:58 AM
Ghani - Galadriel as Moira makes sense to me... seems fitting.

Atropa - Adrien kind of reminds me of Ze Mole from the South Park movie... maybe it's cause they're both French, but they both definitely have the angst down.

http://southpark.wikia.com/wiki/The_Mole

Kyle: "Be careful, dude!"
The Mole: "Careful? Was my mother careful when she stabbed me in ze heart with a clothes hanger while I was still in ze womb?" [turns around and begins tunneling]
Stan: " Damn, dude. That kid is fucked up."


Now for my characters, I'll let you all ponder this image for a second first....
http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/cartoons.jpg





Frankie as Linka from the Planeteers
Linka is smart, feisty, assertive, passionate about the environment, maybe-Communist, and can't express her feelings for the boisterous all-American idiot that she cares for.... yep.


Lola as Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop,
Faye is really a nice girl at heart, a hopeless romantic who got swindled and ended up with with karmic short end of the stick one too many times and then became a screaming sex siren/bounty hunter/femme fatale. She also appears to be very unlucky.


Cynthia as Angelica Pickles from Rugrats
She's the spoiled, vain, selfish, manipulative villian from Rugrats. Also, she has a doll named "Cynthia," so this is clearly destiny.


Donnie as Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory
He's a socially awkward genius boy who's kind of a weaselly little fucker. He invents stuff and probably loves toasters. It works.



Esteban as Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force
I'll let this quote from Wikipedia sum it up:

He spends most of his time watching TV, causing mischief, talking about women, sex, breasts, and porn, and saying random things for attention, but mainly playing cruel pranks on Meatwad. His behavior is highly irregular, blaming others for his numerous mistakes, antagonizing Meatwad for pleasure...

...overall lack of empathy and regard for safety of others. His personality is consistent with several sociopathic characteristics.

Hi guys, thought I'd contribute. :) You have all made interesting choices for your characters.

http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb309/PsycheStyx/PhoenixasStewieandWileyCoyote.jpg

Phoenix is a mix of: Stewie Griffin and Wile E. Coyote.

Like Stewie, Phoenix is smarter than his age and can accomplish things no one would think he could. He is also obsessed with "world domination", which in Phoenix's case means that he is obsessed with Damian and to him Damian is the world. Another thing that is the core of Phoenix is also a main trait for Stewie - the secret hostile inner voice. Phoenix has that too, he has an inner hidden identity that basically means he hates just about everyone, especially those who stand between him and the Prince or whatever he wants for the moment. Though he shows nothing on the outside.

Like The Coyote, Phoenix has many ideas and is a bit of a fanatic and instead of chasing the Road Runner, Phoenix quest is for Damian's blood and anything he asks of him. There are 10 rules stated at wikipedia for The Coyote, two of which fits Phoenix as well:

3. The Coyote could stop anytime — IF he was not a fanatic. ("A fanatic is one who redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim." — George Santayana). [Yes, Phoenix is a bit fanatic, a tad Malkavian in most things he does. It's not in him to relax and do something else. He will keep going, even if he has no clear goal.]

9. The Coyote is always more humiliated than harmed by his failures. [Like when Lola tricked Phoenix and he almost beat up a computer and a truck because he was so mad he fell for it.]

There you have it. :)

Psyche- Phoenix as Stewie is... adorable.


Next prompt:
PROMPT 05: F***, Marry, Kill

Using other characters from the same RP, which character would yours most likely want to fuck, marry, and kill? To clarify:

Fuck = wild crazy sex for a 1 night stand, you never see each other again
Marry= lifelong companionship with intermittent lovemaking and spooning, all through geriatric care when one of you will probably have to change the other's diaper, so think of the long haul
Kill=self-explanatory

Try to use characters from the same RP, but if you’re having trouble coming up with one then cross-RP fuck, marry, kill is ok too.



---


To start off with:

ESTEBAN:

Fuck: Well, he’s already tapped Sienna, so that takes her off the conquest list. He would definitely get off on uppity rich girls servicing him, so that means either Marie-Elisabeth or Cynthia. It’s probably a pretty even toss-up between them, but I think that Marie-Elisabeth comes out slightly ahead because of the blondeness.

Marry: Leigh. They’re friends, so that means she’s willing to put up with a lot of his bullshit, which is a definite plus. They’ve been fuck buddies. She’s a tomboy and not crazy needy and high maintenance like other chicks. And she has some fight in her, which would keep him engaged.

Kill: Matt. He’s rich, elitist, and popular like one of those irritating boy bands with maybe-gay members. Plus Esteban is all *rage*jealousy* about Sienna being so hung up over him.

Ghanima Atreides
24th Jan 2010, 10:07 PM
robokitty - Donnie as Dexter is spot on! Does he also have an annoying airhead older sister? :P

Oookay this prompt should be easier... :giggler:


LILITH

Fuck: J.D. He's part of her group of friends so she knows what he's about, and he's edgy and unpredictable, and therefore exciting to take for a ride.

Marry: Tyler, for the same reasons as Esteban would marry Leigh :P He has a good balance between a nice guy and a bad boy going, and he isn't pushy which makes for a winning combo.

Kill: Helena de la Tour, her nemesis. Self explanatory. As for a PC...Marie-Elisabeth, for being the self-proclaimed queen of airheads, Lilith would love to take her down a peg or two.


FAYE


Fuck: I...really can't think of anything for this one, unless we're going with potentially bi Faye (which she isn't, but she isn't excluding the possibility for the future, so let's assume she might be) and then it would be Frankie, whose fighty personality and courage to stand up for her beliefs would appeal to her.

Marry: Josh, since she's discovered he's a smart and open minded guy who accepts her the way she is. And, she enjoys having conversations with him, which is useful when you're married to someone:P

Kill: Again, obvious. Matt, for bullying her and being a huge conceited hypocrite.



AEODE:

Fuck: this is a tough one because the closest match would be Adrien, but as non-incestuous flings go...I'll go ahead and say Valerian. Just picture her caving in to an emotional turmoil and taking refuge in his arms for a night. It's plausible enough.

Marry: do you even have to ask? :P Noah, of course.

Kill: as obvious as the above: Damian.


MOIRA

Fuck: Damian. Powerful men hold appeal for her, and she's been attracted to Ventrue Princes before

Marry: Valerian, because they just click so well. As much as she cares for Connor, the relationship isn't equal enough for that

Kill: Seraphina, for invading her territory. Melissa has redeemed herself in her eyes.


MELODY

Fuck: Connor. She's a fan, she finds him hot, they get along, hell, she's already thought about it, so definitely Connor.

Marry: Gee, who could it be? :P

Kill: Mel has a list here. Moira and Claudia are at the top though



LAVINIA

Fuck: Dominic, and the only thing keeping her from it is the fact that he's attached...and their friendship which might change, but there's definitely a truckload of chemistry and mutual interest there, so it's an obvious choice.

Marry: Danny, probably. He's a sweet, responsible guy who wouldn't ask her to be someone she's not. Also, there aren't that many guys to choose from in the game.

Kill: Can't really think of anyone, the closest would be Lara assuming she'd be first to antagonize her by making assumptions and accusations regarding Dominic.

Alissa888
24th Jan 2010, 10:56 PM
Lol, well... Lara wouldn't antagonise :P To her credit, Lara would be more mad at Dominic if he cheated, which he has.
Lol, Faye and Frankie... now that would be pretty epic :D


Natalie

Sex: Tyler, just because she thinks he's as sexy as hell.

Marry: Probably someone like Mitch if she was feeling predatory enough, or someone like Eeric.

Kill: Matt. And then Marie-Elisabeth.


Dylan

Sex: Matt. Been there, done him.

Marry: Someone who needs loving, like Mitch.

Kill: She really wouldn't... not even Marie-Elisabeth or Cynthia.


Josh

Sex: Matt, Marie-Elisabeth, Faye, Abby, the list goes on....

Marry: Abby or Faye, if he got to know her better.

Kill: Natalie and Esteban come closest, but the former is far less likely after she drives in a few hometruths.

Lara

Sex: Lavinia, just to sample, had she been bi :P

Marry: Toss up between Danny and Dominic. Danny's all sweet and down-to-earth and is the sensible choice, but she so loves Dominic, so yeah...

Kill: If she suddenly went psycho over the cheating, Dominic.

AtropaMandragora
24th Jan 2010, 10:58 PM
LEIGH:

Fuck: Esteban, probably. Yeah, she's been there, done that, but I imagine she thought it was good. *lol* The only thing that has me hesitant is the "you never see the person again" part of it all, because if it came down to chosing between f*cking Esteban once and never seeing him again, or having him around as a friend, without getting intimate, having him around would win hands down.

Marry: J.D. probably, but only because she wouldn't know any better. An older, wiser Leigh would have probably said Josh, because he's the exact kind of guy that she needs; calm, supportive, understanding. Someone like him could probably make her settle down a little, and make peace with herself.

Kill: The whole prep clique? Probably with Matt and Marie-Elisabeth sharing the first spot on her list. Actually, I think Josh is up there too, but only because she thinks she knows what he's like.



MATT:

Fuck: Tough one. Most of the people he's wanted, he's already been with. :p Would probably have to be Cynthia though, because she's "worthy", she's in the right group, and he'd love the glory and satisfaction of being the first to nail her. And, had he been out of denial; Josh. Though he'd probably come back for more there.

Marry: At this point, Sienna. She's beautiful, she's submissive, she adores him, she looks good on his arm. Perfect package deal for him. Though once he's out of denial... I really don't know.

Kill: Well, three guesses. Nat, of course. And also, right now, Marie-Elisabeth. She's pissed him off royally, and she's pregnant with a baby he doesn't want, and won't be reasoned with. Along with Nat, she'd doing a good job of ruining his life. *lol*



VALERIAN:

Fuck: Well, first of all, he wouldn't consciously let them go afterwards, but... Noah, probably. And Claudia, even though he's already been there. Kind of. But there's a reason why they've been together for so long. Heck, he'd probably do Connor too, if given a chance.

Marry: Moira, for the same reason as Ghani stated for Moira. He's in awe of her, and she's supportive, caring and in a sense maternal. A bit of a substitute Sire as well.

Kill: Oh, come on... Valerian wouldn't hurt a fly! :p



CONNOR:

Fuck: Well, first three spots on the list would go to Moira. After that, it's be Melody, because they get along really well, and understand eachother, and he can just be himself with her, without having to watch his step all too much. Plus, she's really sweet, and cute, and totally his type.

Marry: Moira, for obvious reasons. *lol*

Kill: Valerian, because he's picked up on the closeness and the intimacy between him and Moira.



DAMIAN:

Fuck: Oh boy... Probably Lena, had he known what she's really up to. Would have been a complete power thing for him.

Marry: Olivia, or possibly Moira. He loves refined women with power. Moira probably fits better, because even though he adores Livs, Moira is more independant and assertive.

Kill: Adrien. And at this point Aeode too, for convenience's sake.



Saving the rest of my boys for later. I need to ponder some of them some more, and the others I just don't have time to add right now.

robokitty
25th Jan 2010, 7:55 AM
Ghani - Naw, donnie's an only child. And Adrien/Aoede again? :lol: Also, I totally did not see Frankie ending up on anyone's fuck list, LOL.


but I imagine she thought it was good. *lol*LOL, I guess he managed not to screw it up by avoiding being piss drunk at the same time.


Some more of mine...

FRANKIE:

Fuck: Mitch. She's in complete denial, but definitely Mitch.

Marry: Err... hard choice. There aren't many guys who fit the bill, but I think the two personalities that she'd be most compatible with are either Faye or Bodene. Faye because she doesn't compromise her personal values and has a good head on her shoulders and Bodene because he's so chillax about everything that he'd probably go along with whatever Frankie wanted. But... even though Frankie wishes she was more gay/bi because it matches her feminist ideals more, she's not... so I'll have to give this one to Bodene by a sliver.

Kill: Mitch. Because she's in complete denial about wanting to fuck him.



LOLA:

Fuck: I guess that if it's an actual 1 night stand and she's guaranteed that she would NEVER see him again... Damian. It would be epic hate sex. The next closest person would be Phoenix, but she'd be more "whatever" about it, which might actually be preferable to the torrential hate/love/hate she'd feel about Damian.

Marry: ADRIEN! The puppy love is strong in this one.

Kill: Duhr... Damian.

Alissa888
25th Jan 2010, 10:09 AM
And just to finish up:

Olivia

Sex: Well, if it was a one night stand, Alfmundr. Damian doesn't qualify because she so totally wouldn't want to let go. Archon doesn't qualify because it's really just psychological incest.

Marry: Oh, come on. Damian!

Kill: Anyone who threatens to get between her and Damian. Phoenix and Lena have earned themselves top spots. If she knew he'd pick Moira over her, Moira totally wins the top spot ;)


Lena

Sex: Phoenix - exactly the kind of guy she would have dated, except that he's insane, but again, that's frankly in keeping with how it usually goes. Damian, because... she has some twisted obsession with power figures. Powerstruggle sex all the way, Atropa? :P

Marry: Adrien. He could be wheelchair bound a la Stephen Hawking, and look like Quasimodo, but she'd still love him stupid.

Kill: Seriously, come on! Prizewinner, however, is Damian... perhaps Praying Mantis style.

Robokitty - will say it again, lol, Lena and Lola are freakishly similar :P

FurryPanda
25th Jan 2010, 3:16 PM
Golly, three people that had Mitch anywhere on those lists? Poor boy is doing something right apparently!

Mitch
F**k- If it's truly a one night stand, never see again, probably Frankie, for curiosity's sake. Or not, because he sort of likes her company... If there is a possibility of reencounter, any unnatached prep. Maybe Natalie.

Marry- Dylan, at least until he finds out if she's insane like Gina.

Kill- Matt or Frankie probably. He's terribly embarassed by what already happened with her and doesn't want such a stain on his reputation, and Matt from some sort of formless jealousy type thing.

Loren
F**k- Probably Natalie, because though he's over the moon for her, he might have some knowledge that they are not compatible.

Marry- He'd pick Natalie. He's a fairly simple guy that way. Or Lacey, though he would never think of it in the first place.

Kill- No one. He couldn't even conceive of it. If he had to, then Matt, for bothering Natalie.

Dang, he is so one dimensional at this point...

Katie
f**k- Esteban, for curiosity's sake, and a scientific appreciation that an experienced person is the best one to teach new skills.

Marry- Jude, only guy she actually really likes.

Kill- just one? Marie Elisabeth for making cheerleading a nightmare, or Donnie to get rid of the only one in competition for valedictorian, or Natalie for being more socially well adjusted with about the same smarts, or... she has a motive for killing everyone on the list. Interesting.

AtropaMandragora
25th Jan 2010, 3:59 PM
*lol* Damian and Matt sure are making a lot of hate lists. I wonder why. :p


Okay, the rest of mine. I spent my time at work thinking this up (hey, I was stuck in court with nothing to do :p ). Though I accidently left my notes in the pocket of my work pants, so I'll have to see if I actually remember what I came up with.


TYLER:

F*ck: Natalie. She's independant, headstrong, clever and assertive. Total turn-on for him. And she's a nice girl with a bad edge, and also doesn't seem to judge him. And of course Lilith, but only if the "nver see them again" rule doesn't apply.

Marry: I think Cheyenne or Faye would suit him fairly well. Well, if he hadn't almost pulled his intimidation act on Faye, that is. *lol*

Kill: No one, really. He's not too bothere by anyone.



ADRIEN:

F*ck: Beyonca. Maybe that'd sate her curiosity once and for all, eh, innocent? ;) And also probably Lena. Would probably be the "a hurricane tore through this room" kind of sex.

Marry: Hmmm... Tough one. I'd have to say Alexis (yes, I see the difference between her and Lena... I think... *s*).

Kill: Uh... Do you want me to list them alphabetically, or in the order he'd like to kill them?



DOMINIC:

F*ck: Himself! :D And definitely Lavinia.

Marry: Lara, hands down.

Kill: No one really. I know it's boring, but there's no PC he hates enough. There's not even an NPC he hates. So far.
Oh, no, wait; Madison! She's not been put into play, but me and Alissa had a backstory there, and yeah, Madison. At least until he actually saw what she looked like. Then she'd probably be promoted to the first category. :p



DANIEL:

F*ck: Lavinia, if he'd ever manage to work up the nerve to try.

Marry: Lara. She's his brother's girlfriend, and so there aren't any really romantic feelings there, but he'd definitely choose someone like her. She's sort of set the standard for his ideal girlfriend.

Kill: Dominic, at times, I'm sure. But in the brotherly dispute kind of way.



RIO:

F*ck: Dominic, and Lara, had he been straight. And probably Lavinia too, had he been straight and not related to her. *lol*

Marry: None of the current PC's.

Kill: Same as above.



GABRIEL:

F*ck: Kate. He'd want to put her in her place. And also Mae, and probably Scarlett too.

Marry: I don't think there was a character quite docile enough, but... I'd have to say Mae on this one too. Not because she's anywhere near docile, but because she'd understand his ways and not nag, and probably not bother him about having children either.

Kill: Kate. And sheriff Dawes (that was his name, right?). And probably Dex and Robbie too.



OCTAVIEN:

F*ck: Bella.

Marry: Isabella. He was in love with her, and she was expecting his child (Shh! Don't tell the King!).

Kill: Mercy. No two ways about it. And probably Silvius too.



CÉSAR:

F*ck: Marie-Elisabeth. Things were heading that way, after all. And probably Elena too. Spanish temperament and all.

Marry: Despite his indescretions, there's only ever been one on that one; Josephine.

Kill: Mercy, out of loyalty to Octavien. And he didn't get along too well with Dimitri either.


Phew... Did I miss anyone?

Alissa - yeah, but if Lola found out that TWO of Lena's personalities made Adrien's list, she would be seething :lol:

Furry - awwww @ Loren's list




CYNTHIA:

Fuck: Josh. Because she wouldn't see it as much of a challenge to screw a guy who's been the school bike (Matt), and screwing Josh would bring Marie-Elisabeth down a peg.

Marry: Ergg... well, she would want a rich guy, so that's either Josh or Matt, and of those two, Matt's a better fit for her. Somehow I see a pre-nup and a divorce in this future.

Kill: Marie-Elisabeth. Competition.



DONNIE:

Fuck: Hrmm... maybe Dylan? Because he wouldn't be able to be aroused by someone who isn't smart, and ultimately Dylan is probably too nice for him, so they wouldn't get along past the one night.

Marry: Errrrrrgggg... hmmmmmm. I guess that Natalie is the closest since he does admire her ability to manipulate and socially maneuver herself, plus she's smart and like supermodel gorgeous. Second place might be Abby since they're both socially awkward in their own ways, both rather virginal, and both have intense inner discipline, and he might be a lot more book smart, but she could kick his ass several times over so it might even out.

Kill: I would say Katie for valedictorian competition, but since his Jude is his bud and all... it doesn't seem right. The preps all probably irritate him to some degree... actually, wait... I can imagine that maybe Mitch might've picked on him in the past, so possibly Mitch.

AtropaMandragora
25th Jan 2010, 7:45 PM
robo - *lol* Well, seems to me Josh has been around the block a few times too. :p


Alissa pointed out that I actually did leave out three of my characters... Well, more really, but some are from RPs so old I don't remember the other characters anymore (so, for the record, I'm not covering Benjamin, William and Callista).
But, for those I have left to cover;


ROBBIE:

F*ck: Mae. She knocked his socks off when he sat foot in the Saloon, and it was his plan to bed her, so... It works.

Marry: Kate. She was supposed to have been one of the few in town that had been nice to him, and with his mother dead, and her being kindhearted and considerate (almost maternal), he would've developed a major crush on her eventually.

Kill: Gabriel, without a doubt.



J.D.:

F*ck: Wellll, considering he was still trying to get into Lila's pants when I dumped him... But then again, he was aiming for something more long-term on that one. Otherwise, probably one of the cheerleaders. Not Sienna though. :p Oh, and probably Lilith too, because she's part of his crowd and is relaxed about sex, so... yeah.

Marry: Honestly, I see his life going downhill, so he'd probably marry someone he'd end up clashing with, and getting divorced... Though I don't know who that'd be. Leigh, maybe? Those two would end up killing eachother eventually.

Kill: Josh, Matt, Mitch, and the rest of the jocks and the preps. *lol*



JÉRÉMIE:

F*ck: Probably all of the men. :p To get the dirt on them, of course. But if he had to choose, probably either Octavien or Dimitri.

Marry: Elena, if he was straight, and not so intimidated by the idea of hetero sex. *lol* And if he was older. They're quite similar in all the "right" ways, I think.

Kill: Probably Octavien, for some reason. I'm unsure why, actually.

Lol Atropa. It might. You never know with Bee. Then again she might just get even more curious of what else she could do with him. I am not sure how I would even RP something like between them. :blink:

Ok I am going to post Beyonca because I am having trouble figuring out Mia'a and Cheyenne's.

Beyonca:

F*ck: I would think Adrien because it would be an interesting time. I also think Valerian becuase he is gental and that is something I think she would like.

Marry: I am not sure who would be suited to marry her. I think Damian would be a good choice becuase he would be a strong firm hand that she needs.

Kill: Well I cant really say in particular someone she would kill. My theory is if she was to kill someone it would be because they got in her way of something she was interested in. Like if Adrien fell in love with someone then she would be mad becasue that person took her toy from her. So I think she would go after Adriens love. Also she is getting attched to Aeode because she is pregnant. So when someone tries to turn her or hurt her she might get mad so I think she would do it then. She doesnt want her hurt.


OK, I figured out Mia. Still having trouble with Cheyenne though....

Mia:

F*uck: Aeode, Noah, Moira because of their beauty.

Marry: I would say Zillah because they both have that nack for bad side of things.

Kill: I would say Olivia because I just dont think they would get along all that well.

Alissa888

Had forgotten these charmers, thanks to Atropa for reminding me :)

Will

Sex: He'd so crush on Lilith. And Cynthia. He'd do Natalie too.

Marry: Leigh - fiery with enough bonding (or -age).

Kill: We'll wait and see. He's just a rich kid playing up, so Matt wouldn't get to him. Maybe Mitch, if they clash while he's on the team.


Alistair (will be submitting his app in VtM soon)

Sex: Moira. Alexandria.

Marry: Olivia - for the connections. Melody - for the worship (if he could have it :P). Perhaps Beyonca; he'd figure she'd keep him entertained.

Kill: Anyone who gets in the way of his career. At present, Mina. Perhaps later, Damian.


Claudia

Sex: Damian. Archon. Yup.

Marry: Valerian - submits to her.

Kill: Melody.


Bella

Sex: Cesar. Had she been less virginal, and such, she'd have totally tried him out.

Marry: Octavien. Or Dimitri.

Kill: Eh. Elena... withholding info and all.


Kate

Sex: Gabriel. Would have been her first time. And then just really never speak to him again.

Marry: Ryder.

Kill: Eh... anyone want euthanasia?


Scarlett

Sex: Anyone? Definitely Gabriel.

Marry: Dawes or Dex. Someone who she thought would look after her.

Kill: Mae, at worst.


Seraphina

Sex: I'm not sure. This really depends on her mood. I'll take a safe bet and say Valerian.

Marry: Archon. Seriously, she'd need his stoicism.

Kill: Just... anyone who's unlucky, really. Moira, if she comes after Sera.

Hey all, I couldn't get to posting a new prompt last weekend because I was out of town for a while, and the hotel I stayed at had seriously spotty internet connection. I'll try to make it on time next weekend though.

Finishing up my chars from the last prompt:


ABBY:
Fuck: She is so virginal that she'd want someone who either wasn't that experienced with women or was genuine... so maybe JD or Tyler?

Marry: Josh, obviously. Best buds and she's been crushing on him since forever.

Kill: Probably Marie-Elisabeth for going out with Josh and being an evil person.




And finally... starting the new prompt:


PROMPT 06: Currently Listening to...

Based on whatever your character is feeling/thinking/experiencing now, what song would they currently be jamming to?

You can describe why you picked the song for your character, post the lyrics, and/or link to the actual music.

AtropaMandragora

*lol* I actually thought of something earlier today, for Adrien. So, major coincidence.
But anyway, I was listening to "The Last Ammunition" by Deathstars, and even though it's a little too... human for a vampire, the theme itself really fits Adrien's general mood, and his plans for the future (or rather, lack thereof). Click the title to hear it.


Deathstars - 'The Last Ammunition'; (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulrRzLHBwNg)

Guns and ammo lie in front of you
The clips are all loaded, now what shall you do?
This is how it starts when the end glows wildly in the dark
This is how it starts when the last breath ends the last spark

Nine, nine, nine!
Millimeter
Nine, nine, nine!
Millimeter

Shoot!
The last ammunition
Let the clips fall down
The last ammunition
And fall to the ground

The Desert Eagle spreads its wings for you
Kiss the cold steel then let the bullets come through
This is the ultimate end, I’ll make it sure that you will see
As I shall kiss the cold steel and see how dark this day really can be

Nine, nine, nine!
Millimeter
Nine, nine, nine!
Millimeter

Shoot!
The last ammunition
Let the clips fall down
The last ammunition
And fall to the ground

Bite the blank steel
Now let the bullets come through
The silver eagle says it’s time to…

"Shoot the last ammunition"
Come on and do it now!
"The last ammunition"
I’m going to show you how!

This is how it must end
So bright shines the pistol
This is how I’ll feel
When the last clip is falling
And the barrels are glowing tonight…

Atropa - Seems very fitting for Adrien--dark and angry. Though given the fact that Lena just asked him to kill her if she gets out of control, the lyrics makes it seem like he might be a little trigger-happy with her request. :lol:



For Lola I imagine her being into crazy, experimental stuff, booty grinding music, and indie rock. And currently, ... well, she's being kind of flirty with Phoenix for personal gain. And she has a big ironic and self-destructive streak, so she'd identify with music that has those qualities. So, my choice for her is:


MIA - 10 Dollar (click for link) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3BP4V9gcFM)

China girl was a little girl
From a town
That's all you need to know

Lolita was a man-eater
Clocked him like a taxi meter

Fuck gold, she was a platinum digger
Shakin-ass making moves on a mover

Visa, then a plane ride to ya
Peace out. she'll kill you like uma

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

China girl grew up to be a big girl
Had her sights set on a bigger world

Dial-a-bride from sri lanka
Found herself a yorkshire banker

Need a visa? got wth a geezer
Need some money?
Paid him with her knees up
Year later, started to ease up
Got her own way, shouted out 'see ya'

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

She skipped away to the shop
She found she didn't have enough

She clocked him looking right at her
And sucked on a lollipop.

Yea, what can i get for 10 dollar?
Anything you want. [8x]

Well, before when Esteban was all mopey about Sienna I was going to post La Camisa Negra as his song, but now that he's found out about Matt/Josh, he's feeling a little more of his swagger again. He's also all about hip hop, rap, reggaeton, and funk (and I imagine maybe getting some rocker influence from JD) so this one works pretty well:


N.E.R.D. - Lapdance (click for link) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AfMGHTQxVA)

You can find me drunk, whip it it might crash
Or find me chillin with crackers, who like Clash
Find me in court smokin' that nice grass
Burnin' the flag, all in the name of white trash
It's Harvey baby, Christ on the arm I'm gnarly baby
Fuck with me? Not hardly baby
And you know the flow, im Godly baby
So lets party baby
Chicks nick-name me pilot, they get high off my dick
I take 'em to my home, they call it the cock pit
Time for take off, their panties they drop quick
Now that's first class fuckin, and that' some fly shit

Hehe, that one really fits Lola!

Aeode's present mood (the one before the jump that is) would best be described by Now I'm Feeling Zombiefied by Alien Sex Fiend




Now I'm feeling zombiefied!

Face is white
And my eyes is tired.

I'll hug and I'll squeeze you till you're hypnotised!
Show you faces and places that'll make you terrified to be alive!

Now I'm feeling zombiefied
Now I'm feeling zombiefied
Now I'm feeling zombiefied
Zombiefied!

Curiouser and curiouser and curiouser still
When you get depressed you make us all ill.
Curiouser and curiouser and curiouser still
Some present you gave me, the bitterest pill.

My eyes is all grey
And I haven't slept in days
Locked up in your dungeon
Running around in your maze.

Now I'm feeling zombiefied
Now I'm feeling zombiefied
Now I'm feeling zombiefied
Zombiefied!

Look in a dustbin for something to eat
You find a dead rat and you think it's a treat.
Yeah look in a dustbin for something to eat
You found a dead rat and you think it's a treat.

Curiouser and curiouser and curiouser still
When you get depressed you make us all ill.
Curiouser and curiouser and curiouser still
Some present you gave me, the bitterest pill.

Now I'm feeling zombiefied

This made me think of Cheyenne, not right now, but wht she is going to find in the future for more than one reason. It would also be something she would listen too.


Avril Lavigne

Complicated


Uh-huh,
Life's like this
Uh-huh, uh-huh
That's the way it is
'Cause life's like this
Uh-huh, uh-huh
That's the way it is


Chill out,
What you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could only let it be
You will see


I like you the way you are
When we're, driving in my car
And you're talking to me
One on one
But you become


Somebody else
'Round everyone else
Watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You're tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool
To me


Tell me


Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're
Acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this, you
And you fall and you crawl
And you break and you take
What you get and you turn it into
Honesty Promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it


No, no, no


You come over unannounced
Dressed up like you're something else
Where you are and
Where you sat, you see
You're making me
Laugh out
When you strike a pose
Take off all your preppy clothes
You know
You're not fooling anyone
When you become


Somebody else
'Round everyone else
Watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
Tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool
To me


Tell me


Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're
Acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated

And you fall and you crawl
And you break and you take
What you get and you turn it into
Honesty Promise me
I'm never gonna find you fake it


No, no, no...


Chill out,
What you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if you could let it be
You will see

'Round everyone else
You're watchin' your back

You're tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool
To me, to me


Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?

LOL, that song fits Aeode perfectly :D
Atropa - the vibe is very, very Adrien.
And I can see Cheyenne listening to that... wouldn't have thought of it at first, though, but it fits :)
And yup, I agree with Ghani; that song fits Lola scarily.
Lena basically conforms to this song at present; she's sticking around to play I, Spy, isn't really going to stop killing people, and is sucking up to (and on) Damian for far more ulterior motives, and basically, can't trust anyone anymore, which she figures one day will include herself.


Another Way To Die (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8IU1L4lWCw)

I know the player with the slick trigger finger for Her Majesty
Another one with the golden tongue poisoning your fantasy
Another bill from a killer turned a thriller to a tragedy

A door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Someone that you think that you can trust is just another way to die

Another tricky little gun giving solace to the one that will never see the sunshine
Another inch of your life sacrificed for your brother in the nick of time
Another dirty money, heaven-sent honey turning on a dime

A door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Someone that you think that you can trust is just another way to die

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oah!
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Oh, hey, hey

Another girl with her finger on the world singing to you what you want to hear
Another gun thrown down in surrender took away your fear
Hey!
Another man that stands right behind you looking in the mirror

Oh, a door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Oh, someone that you think that you can trust is just another way to die

Shoot 'em up, bang bang
Bang Bang Bang Bang

Alissa - Yup. And the theme as well. ;) And that song is pretty much perfect for Lena.


Now, for Dominic... Granted, he was just caught cheating, but he is with Lara again, and so;

Europe - 'Let The Good Times Rock' (click to listen) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dD2rmRYmYxI);

You say that you want me
I hope that you do
Cause tell me just where I would be in this world
Without someone like you

When you say that you need me
Like only you can
Oh baby, you don't really know what you've done
To the heart of this man

So baby, tonight we will celebrate
And talk of the times til it gets real late
Yes baby, tonight we'll appreciate
Just what we've got
So let the good times rock

Oh, when you squeeze me
And say that you care
There's nothin' I know that could drag me away
When that feelin' is there

Oh, the way that you move me
And makin' me feel
Well, I could have sworn that I lived in a dream
If it wasn't for real

So baby, tonight we will celebrate
And talk of the times til it gets real late
Yes baby, tonight we'll appreciate
Just what we've got
So let the good times rock

I don't care if it's cheesy, and 80's. It fits, and Europe rock. *nod*

gears - OMG! That song for Jude thinking about Katie is soooo cute. And that suggestion for Esteban could definitely work, but it'd be for when he's in a more relaxed mood... maybe if he managed to get an awesome bj in a library or something.

ghani - Yep, I can totally see those lyrics meshing with what Aeode's been through the past few nights.

Alissa - That song is basically perfect for Lena. Nice.




For Cynthia... well, I imagine that she mostly listens to pop music and whatever is currently popular. Since she hasn't done very much so far, I'm just kind of going with whatever her baseline personality is, so...

Britney Spears - If U Seek Amy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aEnnH6t8Ts)
(PS: for anyone who missed it, "If U Seek Amy = f*** me")

La la la, la la la
La la la, la la la

Oh baby baby have you seen Amy tonight?
Is she in the bathroom is she smokin' up outside? Oh
Oh baby baby does she take a piece of lime
For the drink that I'mma buy her do you know just what she likes? Oh

Oh oh, tell me have you seen her? Because I'm so oh
I can't get her off of my brain
I just want to go to the party she gonna go
Can somebody take me home?
Ha ha, he he, ha ha ho

Love me hate me, say what you want about me
But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy
Love me hate me, but can't you see what I see?
All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy
Love me hate me, la la la, la la la

Amy told me that she's gonna meet me up
I don't know where or when and now they're closing up the club, oh
I've seen her once or twice but boy she knows my face
But it's hard to see with all the people standing in the way, oh

Oh oh, tell me have you seen her, because I'm so oh
I can't get her off of my brain
I just want to go to the party she gonna go
Can somebody take me home?
Ha ha, he he, ha ha ho

Love me hate me, say what you want about me
But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy
Love me hate me, but can't you see what I see?
All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy
Love me hate me

Oh, so what you want about me?
Oh, but can't you see what I see?
Oh, so what you want about me?
La la la, la la la

So tell me if you see her
'Cause I've been waiting here forever
Oh baby baby if you seek Amy tonight
Oh baby baby we'll do whatever you like
Oh baby baby baby
Oh baby baby baby

La la la, la la la
La la la, la la la

Love me hate me, say what you want about me
But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy
Love me hate me, but can't you see what I see
All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy

Love me hate me, say what you want about me, yeah
Love me hate me, but can't you see what I see?
All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy
Love me hate me

Oh, so what you want about me?
Oh, but can't you see what I see?
Love me hate me
Oh, so what you want about me?
All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy



Another song that would pretty accurately describe what Cynthia's doing right now (making fun of other people) would be Camel Toe by Fanny Pack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3I64m0x6wI), which is a totally hilarious song.

um hmm thats right uh huh uh huh
um hmm thats right uh huh uh huh

walking down the street
something caught my eye
a growing epidemic that really ain't fly
a middle aged lady
i gotta be blunt
her spandex biker shorts were creepin up the front

I could see her uterus her pants were too tight
She must've owned panties that were not in sight
She walked right by the poor woman didn't know
She had a frontal wedgie a Camel Toe

[Chorus]
um hmm thats right uh huh
oh no
fix yourself girl
you got a
Camel Toe
um hmm thats right uh huh
oh no
fix yourself girl
you got a
Camel Toe

girl thats gotta hurt
take some time and adjust can't you see people staring
and making a fuss
could not believe my eyes had to take a second glance
is your crotch hungry girl
cause its eating your pants
do you enjoy the commotion and attention it brings
the only lips i wanna see are the ones that sing
in public putting on an x rated show grossin people out
with your Camel Toe

[Repeat Chorus]

first day of spring and by the looks of things these girls have forgot how to dress
a little quick to wearin
wearin pum pum shorts
and its causin me much distress
whoomp there it is
yeha right in the front
everybody come and get a good look
i can see everything through the panty cling every cranny
and every nook
you better take a quick minute
before you step outside
and check the area thats pubic
or you'll get your panties all up in a bunch all twisted up
like rubic
take these words of advice
cause its not very nice
i wanna put you al in the know
girls don't sleep
don't let your pants creep
watch out for
The Camel Toe

[Repeat Chorus]

Double post, but...

Donnie’s favorite genres of music are a variety of electronica, new wave, and anything nerdy. Not much has been happening with Donnie aside from his newfound stalkerdom, but I couldn’t think of any stalker songs that I liked. They were all too touchy-feely for him, being so emotionally stunted and guarded. And then I decided to assume that Nora was floating about somewhere off his radar, and I thought this song was adorable for him.


Marvin the Paranoid Android – Marvin, I Love You (click for link) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ImiqaXBMkM)
Long ago, in another galaxy
There lived a gloomy robot
His name was Marvin
He was getting old and a bit rusty
And nobody liked him

One day, being very bored
He thought it would be a good idea
To tidy up all of his old programs
In his dusty old databank
There were tapes in there
He hadn't played for years

Checking them through,
He accidentally pushed a wrong button
And suddenly he heard

[Voice:]
Marvin, I love you
Marvin, I love you

Well, he was sure he hadn't
Heard that ever before
He wasn't even sure he'd heard it that time
Because being a bored and gloomy robot
He hadn't really been listening

What was worse, he couldn't remember
What button he'd accidentally pressed
Anyway, he tried a few switches at random
And suddenly

[Voice:]
Marvin, I love you
Marvin I love you
Remember, I'm programmed for you
I know we're worlds apart
Still you could break my heart
Loving you is all I can do

Well, he heard it that time all right, no doubt about it
Who was singing these strange words?
Was it another robot?
Or some strange lifeform from the distant past
When he was a young robot and people still made
The occasional attempt to like him?

He couldn't make it out at all
So, he pushed a few buttons again

[Voice:]
Marvin, I love you
Marvin, I love you

That was it

[Voice:]
I tried to contact Marvin
I don't know why, but he never replied
Perhaps one day he'll answer.
Till then I guess I'll keep on trying
Marvin, I love you
Marvin I love you
Remember, I'm programmed for you

"Does not compute" he thought miserably
But at least he knew where to find it in his databank
From then on he could play it whenever he wanted
Think about what he'd missed
And live miserably ever after

[Voice:]
Marvin, I love you
Marvin I love you
Remember, I'm programmed for you
I know we're worlds apart
Still you could break my heart
Loving you is all I can do
Marvin, I love you
Marvin I love you



btw, gears – another cute, nerdy, longing love song that might work for Jude/Katie is The Method by We Are Scientists (http://www.kittyklan.com/TheMethod.mp3)
“The breathing mask and safety goggles/ Accentuate your eyes”

I found another one for Adrien today. Not a difficult thing to do, really, considering my taste in music, and his state of mind... but still... :D

Pain - 'Walking On Glass' (click to listen... it might take a while to load) (kittyklan.com/WalkingOnGlass.mp3);

So how many times do I have to pick myself up
When you're just crushing my life?
So I can carry on
Fill my soul so hollow

I've been down the drain
And washed away
And still I come back for more
I keep my head up high
Always try to walk the line

I'm not like you
My life flashes before my eyes
No, I am not like you
The truth turns me upside down

Here it comes again
Pain is calling me
And I don't understand
It's just like walking on glass
Here we go again
And I can't turn it off
It's been following my past
It's just like walking on glass

Life's too short but I don't give a fuck
Why try to think like you
I have my own free will
Life is built on sorrow

Fields of burning lies is getting clearer by age
Soon we start to realize
Born and raised in a cage

I'm not like you
My life flashes before my eyes
No, I am not like you
The truth turns me upside down

Here it comes again
Pain is calling me
And I don't understand
It's just like walking on glass
Here we go again
And I can't turn it off
It's been following my past
It's just like walking on glass

Walk with me
It's getting dark
Walk with me
We'll try to save our broken souls

Here it comes again
Pain is calling me
And I don't understand
It's just like walking on glass
Here we go again
And I can't turn it off
It's been following my past
It's just like walking on glass

After much deliberation, I found a song for Frankie that works from where she’s left off with Mitch in media studies class. Especially since he did the fake nicey voice with her and she’s done the fake nicey voice back.

Lily Allen – F*** You (click for link) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nULKw8s061E)

Look inside, look inside your tiny mind
and look a bit harder
cause we’re so uninspired
so sick and tired
of all the hatred you harbor

so you say it’s not okay to be gay
well I think you’re just evil
you’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces
you’re point of view is medieval

F*** you, f*** you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don’t stay in touch

f*** you, f*** you very very much
cause your words don’t translate
and it’s getting quite late
so please don’t stay in touch

do you get, do you get a little kick out of being small-minded?
you want to be like your father
it’s approval you’re after
well that’s not how you’ll find it

do you, do you really enjoy living a life that’s so hateful
cause there’s a hole where your soul should be
you’re losing control of it
and it’s really distasteful

F*** you, f*** you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don’t stay in touch

F*** you, f*** you very very much
cause your words don’t translate
and it’s getting quite late
so please don’t stay in touch

Look inside, look inside your tiny mind
and look a bit harder
cause we’re so uninspired
so sick and tired
of all the hatred you harbor

F*** you, f*** you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don’t stay in touch

F*** you, f*** you very very much
cause your words don’t translate
and it’s getting quite late
so please don’t stay in touch

I thought it'd be better to split this into two posts... sorry for the double.


OOC Prompt 07: Myers Briggs

Post your characters’ (and your own if you feel like it) Myers Briggs personality type. To figure out what it is, you can use this quiz:

http://similarminds.com/jung.html

Alternatively, if you don’t want to bother with a quiz every time, then you can also use this page to help pick your character’s personality type by reading the descriptions of each of the 4 categories.

http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html

For posting your results, there are a ton of websites that contain MBTI personality descriptions. Below are a couple sites you can use (but feel free to look for others too):
http://www.xeromag.com/fun/personality.html
http://typelogic.com/


I’ll start off with my own, personal MBTI and then do some for my characters later. This happens to be Donnie's personality type as well ;)

Robokitty & Donnie – INTJ

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence.This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know.

INTJs are perfectionists, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes their interest. What prevents them from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake.

INTJs are known as the "Systems Builders" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait combination of imagination and reliability. Whatever system an INTJ happens to be working on is for them the equivalent of a moral cause to an INFJ; both perfectionism and disregard for authority may come into play, as INTJs can be unsparing of both themselves and the others on the project. Anyone considered to be "slacking," including superiors, will lose their respect -- and will generally be made aware of this; INTJs have also been known to take it upon themselves to implement critical decisions without consulting their supervisors or co-workers. On the other hand, they do tend to be scrupulous and even-handed about recognizing the individual contributions that have gone into a project, and have a gift for seizing opportunities which others might not even notice.

In the broadest terms, what INTJs "do" tends to be what they "know".
Typical INTJ career choices are in the sciences and engineering, but they can be found wherever a combination of intellect and incisiveness are required (e.g., law, some areas of academia). INTJs can rise to management positions when they are willing to invest time in marketing their abilities as well as enhancing them, and (whether for the sake of ambition or the desire for privacy)many also find it useful to learn to simulate some degree of surface conformism in order to mask their inherent unconventionality.

Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ's Achilles heel. While they are capable of caring deeply for others (usually a select few), and are willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, the knowledge and self-confidence that make them so successful in other areas can suddenly abandon or mislead them in interpersonal situations.

This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. :-) This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete', paralleling that of many Fs -- only instead of expecting inexhaustible affection and empathy from a romantic relationship, the INTJ will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness.

Probably the strongest INTJ assets in the interpersonal area are their intuitive abilities and their willingness to "work at" a relationship. Although as Ts they do not always have the kind of natural empathy that many Fs do, the Intuitive function can often act as a good substitute by synthesizing the probable meanings behind such things as tone of voice, turn of phrase, and facial expression. This ability can then be honed and directed by consistent, repeated efforts to understand and support those they care about, and those relationships which ultimately do become established with an INTJ tend to be characterized by their robustness, stability, and good communications.

Lol, had to do this. Lena's (and mine, incidentally) type is so totally ENTP. Couldn't stick her in ENTJ; she only likes power because it makes her feel safer to be in control. Highlighted the bits that were most fitting.

"Clever" is the word that perhaps describes ENTPs best. The professor who juggles half a dozen ideas for research papers and grant proposals in his mind while giving a highly entertaining lecture on an abstruse subject is a classic example of the type. So is the stand-up comedian whose lampoons are not only funny, but incisively accurate.

ENTPs are usually verbally as well as cerebrally quick, and generally love to argue--both for its own sake, and to show off their often-impressive skills. They tend to have a perverse sense of humor as well, and enjoy playing devil's advocate. They sometimes confuse, even inadvertently hurt, those who don't understand or accept the concept of argument as a sport.

ENTPs are as innovative and ingenious at problem-solving as they are at verbal gymnastics; on occasion, however, they manage to outsmart themselves. This can take the form of getting found out at "sharp practice"--ENTPs have been known to cut corners without regard to the rules if it's expedient -- or simply in the collapse of an over-ambitious juggling act. Both at work and at home, ENTPs are very fond of "toys"--physical or intellectual, the more sophisticated the better. They tend to tire of these quickly, however, and move on to new ones.

ENTPs are basically optimists, but in spite of this (perhaps because of it?), they tend to become extremely affected by setbacks and inconveniences. (Major setbacks they tend to regard as challenges, and tackle with determination.) ENTPs have little patience with those they consider wrongheaded or unintelligent, and show little restraint in demonstrating this. However, they do tend to be extremely genial, and charming, when not being harassed by life in general.

In terms of their relationships with others, ENTPs are capable of bonding very closely and, initially, suddenly, with their loved ones. Some appear to be deceptively offhand with their nearest and dearest; others are so demonstrative that they succeed in shocking co-workers who've only seen their professional side. ENTPs are also good at acquiring friends who are as clever and entertaining as they are. Aside from those two areas, ENTPs tend to be oblivious of the rest of humanity, except as an audience -- good, bad, or potential.

With Extraverted Intuition dominating their personality, the ENTP's primary interest in life is understanding the world that they live in. They are constantly absorbing ideas and images about the situations they are presented in their lives. Using their intuition to process this information, they are usually extremely quick and accurate in their ability to size up a situation. With the exception of their ENFP cousin, the ENTP has a deeper understanding of their environment than any of the other types.

This ability to intuitively understand people and situations puts the ENTP at a distinct advantage in their lives. They generally understand things quickly and with great depth. Accordingly, they are quite flexible and adapt well to a wide range of tasks. They are good at most anything that interests them. As they grow and further develop their intuitive abilities and insights, they become very aware of possibilities, and this makes them quite resourceful when solving problems.

The ENTP personality type is sometimes referred to the "Lawyer" type. The ENTP "lawyer" quickly and accurately understands a situation, and objectively and logically acts upon the situation. Their Thinking side makes their actions and decisions based on an objective list of rules or laws. If the ENTP was defending someone who had actually committed a crime, they are likely to take advantage of quirks in the law that will get their client off the hook. If they were to actually win the case, they would see their actions as completely fair and proper to the situation, because their actions were lawful.

The least developed area for the ENTP is the Sensing-Feeling arena. If the Sensing areas are neglected, the ENTP may tend to not take care of details in their life. If the Feeling part of themself is neglected, the ENTP may not value other people's input enough, or may become overly harsh and aggressive.

Seldom are ENTP's conformists. ENTP's enjoy outwitting the system and use rules and regulations within the system to win the game-whatever it may be. They understand well the politics of institutions and deal with these realities very well, always aiming to understand the people within the system rather than to judge them. As an employee, an ENTP may work against the system just for the joy of being one-up. For ENTP's, to be taken-in, to be manipulated by another, is humiliating; this offends their joy in being masters of the art of one-upmanship. ENTP's are the natural engineers of human relationships and human systems. Their good humor and optimistic outlook tend to be contagious, and people seek out their company.

Creative, clever, curious, and theoretical, ENTPs have a broad range of possibilities in their lives.

Alissa - wow, that description fits Lena really well. But now I'm gonna wonder if you and Lena share the same crazy streaks!


For Esteban, he's obviously E and P. For T/F... I lean more towards T because, even though he feels very strongly and acts a lot on him emotions, F seems to assume way too many warm, fuzzy emotion rather than angsty, angry ones. And for N/S... I'd say he's pretty balanced... maybe a nudge in the S direction. So that makes him a mix of ESTP and ENTP.

Here are more... err... colorful descriptions of the personality types, and they fit Esteban pretty well ;)

ESTP: The Conman

As an ESTP, you are driven to succeed and to win. Your personality is dominated by your drive to test yourself and to triumph over your fellow man.

This generally expresses itself as an overwhelming urge to prove your self worth by taking advantage of the suckers, marks, and dupes who surround you--after all, isn't that what they're there for? It's not your fault that their stupidity and gullibility lets them believe you when you say that Hershey's Kissesses exposed to your patented psychic amplifier rays will let them fly! As your hero and fellow ESTP, P. T. Barnum, once said, "it is morally wrong to let a sucker keep his money."

As an ESTP, your greatest fear is failure. Under no circumstances will you permit yourself that kind of weakness, which makes you ideally suited for a job at Enron, where your natural talents can be recognized and rewarded.

RECREATION: ESTPs enjoy recreational activities such as card sharking, pool sharking, and conning little old women out of their lives' savings. They're often fond of polo as well.


ENTP: The Mad Scientist

The ENTP, like the ENTJ, is charismatic, outgoing, and intelligent. ENTPs are often quickwitted, clever, and genial; they typically display a highly organized, rational cognitive ability which makes them natural scientists and inventors.

ENTPs are creative, complex people who seek to improve their understanding of the natural world, usually by building armored fifty-story-tall robotic monsters with iron jaws and death-ray eyes, or by creating genetically mutated plagues that spread unstoppably across the land, turning all who are contaminated into mindless zombie drones. They are less likely to want to conquer the world than to destroy it utterly, reducing it to nothing but slag and rubble--though this is often merely a side-effect of their pursuit of knowledge.

I was kind of cranky, not because it wasn't accurate but because it wasn't flattering. I read all of the other combinations and realized that this was indeed the character I made. :|

But the unflattering description is funny and makes Jude sound SO adorable. I guess that we nailed his personality when we figured out his past manservantyness with Cyn :)

I was kind of disappointed that the INTJ description on that page that wasn't unflattering for Donnie because, personally, I find his/my glaring personality weaknesses kind of amusing in a metacognitive sort of way. But maybe I'm just too in love with my own "quirks" to see them as flaws. "INTJs don't have friends, silly"<--AWESOME!

Also, Nora as an INFP makes a bunch of sense.


And this is me if you care

Good call on your part, and thanks for having me look through all of that stuff, it helped me understand my characters better.

Well, thanks for taking the time to go against your ISFP nature and read through it all and resist the natural urge to find potato chips. :lol: It's all part of my robot-like attempts to understand people better and then "quiz" myself by trying to guess their MBTI type. (Donnie might be based on my bf, but he sure takes a lot from me too!) :cylon:

I think all of your/Donnie's quirks are fantastic, also, I'm totally your friend cause we can't have you running around making your own friends...thats how skynet started :P (Donnie has Jude for this reason.)


OMFG. I have not seen someone other than me make a pop culture reference this awesome for... years maybe. I LOLed so hard. :rofl:



As for Frankie, she is so totally an ENTJ... maybe with some ENFJ tendencies.
ENTJ: The Evil Overlord

The ENTJ is best characterized by his charisma, his ability to grasp complex situations and to think flexibly and creatively, his keen and active intelligence, and his overwhelming desire to crush the world beneath his boot. ENTJs are naturally outgoing and love the company of other people, particulalry minions, henchmen, slaves, and the others they rule with ruthless efficiency.

ENTJs usually die at the hand of secret government agents in a fiery cataclysm that destroys their entire underground fortress. Often, Evil Overlords will have a secret clone whose implanted memories contain all the knowledge and ambition of the original, stored in cryonic suspension in a safe location. The clone will appear in a sequel.

RECREATION: ENTJs enjoy spending their leisure time in groups, seeking out the company of others with whom they can exchange strategies and ideas, and test their mind control rays. They also enjoy competitive games which challenge them intellectually, such as chess, go, and "tell me where the missiles are or I'll open the pirhana cage and the girl dies."



And Cynthia is... hmmm... probably also an ESTP Conman like Esteban with some ENTJ Evil Overlord tendencies.

What a cool prompt!
It was a wrong number that started it, the telephone ringing three times in the dead of night, and the voice on the other end asking for someone <Mitch> was not.
He'd had way too much to drink and was not really willing to answer the phone at all. But as it rang the third time he finally bestirred himself to pick up the phone with an ever so cheerful, "who the hell is this?"

"Hello Mitchell," an oddly familiar voice said. He couldn't place it, but he didn't talk on the phone much, there were very few people that would recognize his voice immediately. He didn't say anything, still somewhat sleep befuddled. He started walking downstairs for a cup of cocoa, knowing that that helped him sleep for some reason.

"Mitchell, it's your father." He stopped dead still on the stair well, and involuntarily his hands tightened enough to make the railing groan and the phone make an unpleasant creaking noise. Phil Gaithers, if he noticed through the phone, didn't seem to change what he was saying, "where's your moth-" but Mitch but him off.

"You got a lot of nerve calling at this hour, pop" he said, almost spitting the last word, "Go back to whatever shit it is you're doing and leave us alone." he finished, and he pushed the button to hang up the phone.

He didn't realize that he was trembling, and he put a large pot of water on the stove. It was two a.m. Why on earth would that worthless drunk call at 2a.m. on a Teusday? It was going to take a lot more than one cup of chocolate to get him to calm down.

Phil really did have a lot of nerve. He'd dumped mom with a day's notice, didn't pay a dime of child support- not that that mattered, mom was earning several times as much and not drinking it all away- didn't make any contact at all for five years, and then wanted to talk to mom at 2am? F**k him.

The water wasn't boiling yet, but he took a mug and dipped it in. Even if it was a bit congealed, it would be better than thinking about how horrible Phil had been to mom and Joanna- and Mitch too, he supposed, but he was the only real man in the house. He could take it, regardless of how relieved he'd been when Phil had finally left.

The cocoa was really gross, and Mitch was just trying to breathe deeply, calm down, all that sh*t, when he heard the door open. He tipped the entire rest of the mug back and wiped his mouth, only to see Joanna of all people stumbling into the house at 2:30 am with some guy's hand up her shirt.

He was stunned for a minute, of all the days for mom to have the late shift, but he coughed quietly and said, "Jo, you're late. You gonna introduce me to your freind?"

Whatever kind of worthless jack it was wasn't that much older than Jo, maybe seventh or eighth grade? Jack took his hands off Mitch's sister and looked all set to actually get in a fight with a sixth grade girl's father or brother or whoever Mitch might be. Mitch was slightly disappointed that the guy apparently had enough brains to see that Mitch could rip him in half, and with a wistful glance at Jo, jack turned around, readjusted his trousers, and muttered something that was probably extremely impolite.

Jo stared wistfully after him for a minute, then took in Mitch's tense state, the phone on the table and the pot of water merrily boiling. Whatever sarcastic witticism she'd been all set to say disappeared, and she just glared at him for a second and stormed upstairs. She knew better than to provoke him when he was like this, and that anything she did would be provoking. Great, just great. He drank another cup of chocolate and went to bed. If Phil called again, Mitch would ask mom if she minded getting their phone number changed. That hole didn't deserve another chance, and Mitch didn't think that mom would disagree.

There was a football game tomorrow, that would probably help make him feel better. They were playing Brentwood, and they were known for having not particularly good, but rather aggressive players. Just the kind of guys whom it was completely appropriate to mop the floor with. The thought made him feel slightly better, and he went back to bed. He tried to ignore the sound of a keyboard as Jo instant messaged with whatever creeper she was enamored with now.

He heard the front door open again, and from the high heeled clicking, it was mom, but he didn't want to bother her. She had enough on her plate.

What a cool prompt!

Thanks! And thanks for suggesting an IC sandbox idea, I definitely had you in mind when I posted it (and I tried to time it with a relatively non-busy period for you). So, I'm glad it worked and you liked it and jumped on it! :D The "famous first line" part of the prompt actually comes from hanging out with aikea_guinea last weekend, so I can't take credit for that either.

I loved reading about Mitch's home life, btw. It really fleshes him out in a way that we haven't seen in SS. There's something very endearing about him playing the protective big brother to his little sis. Makes me wonder how "developed" she looks for her age and if Esteban would check her out. ;)

It was love at first sight
Joanna knew she shouldn't believe that such things could happen anywhere. Heck, after mom and dad had split up, both of them had decried the concept of love at first sight for her for hours- dad when he was sad and drunk, as opposed to mean and drunk, and mom when she was ranting about the whole thing. But that was different. Mom and dad had met when they were in college, and Mitch had told her that college kids were idiots.

This was fifth grade homeroom, and this fellow was, without question, much better than dad. Even in mom and dad's wedding pictures, dad had been a big guy, with obnoxious glasses and a yellow mustache. But this boy, he was tall and had red hair and braces. And he smiled a lot. And Joanna couldn't help staring at him, couldn't help wondering what he was thinking, what he was doing, anything.

It took her a week to work up the courage to go anywhere near him. It took another couple of days to get over the fact that he had really bright green eyes, and chewed on pencil erasers. Finally she worked up the courage to talk to him.

Biggest bore ever.

So much for love at first sight. She went back to listening to her music, actually paying attention in class, trying to avoid her parents when they screamed at each other. She and Mitch were playing a lot of gin rummy, and he was being nice, when they heard the sound of something ceramicy breaking, he didn't look upset. She tried to be as brave, but she thought that he knew better.

After a few months of that, and two decks of cards played down to tatters, dad finally left the house for good. Mitch was saying good riddance the entire time, though Joanna was upset that mom had to take more hours working at the hospital. She was a full on, wall of certificates, doctor, she shouldn't have to have the night shift so often.

All of that went right out the window though, when she met Harry. She had to go to one of Mitch's stupid football games, because mom didn't want her home alone that long, and her jacket didn't even fit right anymore, so despite the cold weather, she had to leave it half open. She'd brought an ipod that she'd saved for months for, and she'd been buying sheet music online. She fancied that making music might make everything better. Maybe it would make her parents like each other again, if they both got invitations to some sort of concert she was responsible for and mom showed up in a orange taffeta dress with silver buttons all along one side, and dad was sober and dashing and told jokes like he used to.

So she was sitting on the bleachers, staring at the sheet music, trying to make the connections between the little dots on the paper, and the words they were singing, and why it was so pretty, when a tall guy sat next to her. She ignored him. Finally he asked her if she was cold. She glanced up at him, and couldn't say anything for a minute. Maybe it was because she really was freezing, an open jacket at a November football game, with no hat and space between her socks and the bottom of her pants was plenty to slow her down and muddle her thoughts. Maybe it was the light, gap toothed smile he gave her, or the fact that his eyes looked really warm and affectionate, unlike Mitch who always seemed halfway to going insane, or her dad, who was already there, or the guys at school who would glance at her shirt and smirk.

"A little" she responded, and he took off the big jacket he was wearing, a Britishy trenchcoat that was taller than she was and handed it to her without a second's pause. She smiled at him and put away her music. They talked the entire rest of the football game and music and art and composition. Whoever the heck this Harry fellow was, he was the best conversationalist, hands down, she'd ever met.

They exchanged phone numbers, hung out a lot in the weeks following. Joanna decided that she shouldn't tell her mom about this, should go out of her way to not mention her age to Harry, he'd mentioned that he was in college, and college guys were stupid. This was wonderful and everything.

One day over the summer she walked down to the local Starbucks to meet Harry for coffee. He was looking rather upset, nursing a latte rather than swigging down his usual frappacino. "You okay?" she asked, after ordering her own chai.

"No," he said, with a thick sigh and a small sip of coffee. "Found out last week that my girlfreind is a little slut."

Jo didn't think. She'd watched way too many romantic comedies, and been hanging out with Harry way to long to think about whether it was right for her to reach forward and put her own tiny hands around his.

"I'm sorry," she said softly, looking at him through lowered lashes, slouching forward like she'd seen some of Mitch's lady freinds do when he was paying the most attention to them.

He gave a small, insincere smile, and, still not thinking, she scooted a little closer to him around the bench in the booth, and he put one arm around her shoulder. Her other hand was on his which was still on his coffee cup. He was really warm, and smelled like coffee, and his eyes were even more affectionate than when she'd met him if that was possible. They sat like that for a minute, her eyes fixed on his slightly stubbled jawline, and his fixed on his coffee.

She could hear her heart pounding in her own ears as she took her hand off of his and traced his opposite cheek, and, somewhat inexpertly, kissed him. He pulled back quickly and took his arm off her shoulder, scooted a little away from her. her throat contracted all the way into her mouth.

"Look, Jo, you're a great girl and all, but its way too soon for me, and come on, you're what, sixteen?"

"Eleven" she said woodenly. He froze like a rabbit, not that Jo could see for staring at her hands, at the pink nail polish she'd put on the night before. He got up entirely. That she noticed as his significantly greater weight let the cushion on the seat bound up.

He looked terrified. "No." he said, with an absolute sense of moral certitude that Jo couldn't even begin to fathom. "Just, stay away from me kid, and maybe you can call me again when you're legal but... just..." he looked even more horrified and then whirled around and left.

Jo heard every word like a punch in the chest, and she put her head down on the table and cried quietly. She'd never felt anything like this, and didn't want to again. That kiss had been so perfect, and then, because she was a stupid little kid, he'd left her. She drank the rest of his latte, relishing that same taste that he had, and finally managed to pull herself together enough to walk home and lock herself in her room.

((OOC: Looking forward to it, Furry :)


I actually didn't have any scenes in mind when I posted those first lines, so I've been trying to think of some. This one just came to me today. I imagine this happening to Donnie when he was in middle school... maybe 7th grade, and during a summer when he went away for a smart kids' math & science camp.))

It was a pleasure to burn. To watch the Bunsen burner's blue flame lick the bottom of the borosilicate flask, the bubbles that rolled up through the solution and the bright orange precipitate to pop at the surface. It was the first day of chem lab at the summer camp for the gifted, and Donnie, like always, attacked his lab practical with stunning precision and celerity. In fact, within the first 10 minutes of the activity his lab partner had already dubbed him "Iceman.”

At first, Donnie wasn’t sure how to take it. But then he remembered how he’d watched Top Gun and girls had screamed when the volleyball scene started so he assumed Val Kilmer must be kind of cool. Plus, Real Genius rocked, and Batman Forever wasn't that bad, right? Iceman. Yeah, he liked that.

The lab instructor, a college student who insisted they all call him “Bill,” stopped the class to ask a question about the product’s resonance structures, everyone else squinted at their lab notebooks and scratched their heads. Not Donnie, though. Not Iceman. In a fashion befitting such a moniker, Donnie had torn through the lab practical and critical thinking questions with text-book expertise. His hand shot up immediately.

“Yes, Malini?”

Donnie’s eyes widened. Someone else had beaten him to the answer? Who the--? No, no way…. She was going to get the answer wrong. He knew it.

“It has six resonance structures.”

“Yup, so from that--“

Goddammit! Donnie spun around to see this Malini for himself, and she was standing at the back of the lab room. When she talked, she revealed perfect white teeth and a stretch of steel braces decorated with pink and purple rubber bands. They looked pretty when she smiled. Her black curly hair poofed out against the strap on her lab goggles and fell in soft rings around her face. She saw Donnie look her way and glanced at him. Her big, dark chocolate eyes and thick lashes were magnified by the glasses she wore underneath her goggles. Malini smiled shyly and looked away.

Donnie turned away instantly, and in the process his elbow banged against his ring stand. His whole apparatus tipped. Shit! He dove forward to save it. Glassware rattled against metal which rattled against the black lab table. He managed to jerk it upright before anything was spilled, and it wobbled back into place. The entire class was looking at him.

“Hey Iceman, are you okay?”

Donnie nodded and picked up his pencil and pretended to be distracted by some data he was working through in his lab notebook. He rested his hand against his head like a blinder between himself and Malini. He could feel his cheeks getting warm, and for the remainder of the lab he did not look at her again.

It was a pleasure to burn.

Jo had spent several weeks after Harry dumped her- and it was a dumping, regardless of the fact that they hadn't done anything- in a fugue. She went to school, she hung out with her freinds, she worked on her music, but nothing had meaning. It was all gray and bland and flat. Some of her freinds noticed and asked, but she didn't tell them. They wouldn't understand, and would think she was a hussy for falling so hard for a college kid.

It didn't matter anyway. What did their judgment matter, when she had lost the most wonderful person she'd ever met? "Call me when you're legal" really? It should have made her furious, but it didn't. She didn't know why, and she didn't bother to analyze the emotion too intensely. It didn't matter.

She wanted to talk to Mitch about Harry, but she knew that he wouldn't have anything much to say on the subject. He would tell her that college kids were stupid, that she shouldn't even deal with guys that much, that a girl her age, that girls his age, shouldn't even interact with boys. He was such a hypocrite. She wasn't completely certain what he did with the endless parade of tall skinny girls he brought home, but she seriously doubted, judging by the sounds she heard sometimes, that they played scrabble.

And there wasn't anyone else she could talk to. A guidance counselor? That would traumatize mom forever. Mom? There were certain things an eleven year old's mom shouldn't know about. Her freinds? They had never known what she was doing, and anything even close to the subject brought up the subject of cooties for crying out loud.

Unbeknownst to Jo, many people at school noticed her fugue, and were concerned. No teachers, she was good enough at hiding her angst from her mother and brother that hiding it from her teachers was no big deal. No, it was a couple of boys that saw. Charles Weatherby was hardly the sort of person that one would expect to notice an angst laden new sixth grader, but then again, no one expected any eigth grader, let alone as much of a druggie and party boy as Charles to notice any sixth grader. Indeed, Charles didn't notice her for any reaction to her sad eyes, or how she sat, dressed in black and purple in the midst of her pink and white clad freinds. No, he noticed that she would sit by herself writing, in skirts, and underwear he found attractive. There were monkeys on them, and that implied, despite the quietude, that she wasn't a total emo wreck.

So Charles started sitting with her, writing in a notebook he got just for that purpose. Eventually she asked him what he was writing. Eventually he was able to draw her into a lengthy conversation. It was difficult, between the sixth graders free period intersecting with the eighth graders lunch for only ten minutes, and the fact she was still timid about the whole thing.

It took almost a month, but Charles was patient, and he knew what he was looking for. And besides which, he kept managing to get into raves and parties. Time flew most of the time, no matter what he was up to. One day Jo asked him if he wanted to hang out after school some time, and Charles had to resist the impulse to pump his arm up and down a few times and whoop. Instead he casually told her about a party he was going to, and he could use a date. She agreed.

He wasn't going to take things too fast with her, she would run away and cry under a table if she was like any of the other faux emo girls he'd tried to seduce. He wasn't even going to try to do anything tonight. It was worth the wait. And then she tried some of the punch. It all sort of happened. Charles didn't complain, and Jo had been so struck by how nice Charles had been to her, how patient, how sweet, how attentive, how much more fun in a nice way he was than Harry...

After she had a glass of the punch it just seemed natural to kiss him. And he didn't protest at all. It seemed natural to grab him by his collar and take him outside. It seemed natural to go pretty far. Charles was sober enough not to take it all the way, but after that, they were officially dating. At least as far as Jo saw it.

It was a pretty whirlwind romance, and over winter break they were nigh on inseperable. Mitch and Jo's mom knew that she had a boyfreind, but she assumed it was some kind of innocent puppyish affection on his part, and idealized romance for her. Mitch didn't have a clue. Jo remained in one of the happiest states of her life, getting plenty from Charles even if he was two years older and taking advantage.

One night as they were in Charles' basement, for once just watching a movie rather than anything else, Jo cuddled up close into him and told him, her voice oddly serious that she wanted to do more. Charles wasn't exactly sure what she meant, though he had an idea and was trying to keep from thinking about it. "Let's go to my parents room" she said, her voice soft and alluring, her hands moving differently than they had before and Charles lost pretty much all brain control at that point.

Somehow they walked in a passionate embrace all the way to her house, his hands up her shirt, her hands everywhere, no jacket no nothing, and she eventually pulled her hands away from him to get the door open and a minute later a guy's voice rolled out, a quiet bass. Charles was in a state of profound frustration from the walk and holding himself from taking her on the sidewalk, and now this guy was talking to his girl and...

He took one slightly rational look at the situation and left, despite Jo's imploring gaze.

She went up to her room and slept soundly. She wasn't happy, but as she'd be walking with him, or on him to be more accurate, she'd found that she really did want what they were doing. What they would be doing on mom and dad's bed. And their love would make it clean and happy, and then she could play the flute or the violin and her whole family would be happy, and Mitch would smile and ruffle her hair and call her sis, and mom would read her stories, and everything would be perfect, if she could get her love to make everything clean.

* * *
Mitch managed to convince himself that what he'd seen with Jo wasn't anything serious. He didn't like it if she was drinking and getting herself into trouble, but she was more than smart enough to handle herself most of the time. A terse apology the morning after, a quick exchange of "don't do that again", "I won't" and the fact that he had plenty else to worry about was enough. His little sister would never be stupid enough to get herself in trouble, would she? She was so much smarter than him, and guys like him didn't like that, so she should be fine... When she had to catch the earlier middle school bus he put a box of condoms in her room, just in case.

He knew that she knew about them, she'd have to be an idiot to miss seeing them but she didn't mention it again, and he figured that she had gotten the point. Hopefully. Or maybe he should have actually talked to her, told her that kind of thing was a bad idea, that she should be wary of men, find some song lyric to quote or something, but anything Phil {his dad} would have done was nothing he wanted to ever do, regardless if for once he would have been right.

Several weeks passed, and Jo didn't seem too bothered by anything, and when he bothered to check to see if the condoms had been open, they were gathering a layer of dust. She was fine. His smart little sister wasn't going to be the sort of insecure girl that guys like him deflowered. She wasn't like that, he didn't need to feel guilty, it was fine. Perfectly fine.

((OOC: Thanks :) I might do it, sounds like fun!

Since I've read a week ago L'étranger of Camus and I absolutely loved it, I had to choose it. I was so inspired that I had to write it even if it ended up to be only for myself :P It's a little dark but with that theme it was hard not to. Sorry for my awful English too, I hope you'll still enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Here is an excerpt of Deb's diary:))

Mother died today.

She committed suicide a year ago but the awful truth struck me today: My mother is dead. At least to me. I know that since her heart is probably still beating I'm not entitled to say that, to feel that. I'm supposed to be the lucky one. But who are they to tell me what I'm supposed to feel! They say that death is the cessation of someone's body function, the end of his consciousness. And in a way, it is. But what does it really mean?

Death means loosing someone that we loved and that we will never be able to see again. And there's all these feelings that violently take a hold of you : grief, anger, sorrow, sometimes also mixed with guilt, betrayal, astonishment and the search for answers that you'll probably never get. Well, I share the same exact feelings. Don't we say to kids that are mourning that the loved one has left them for a better world? Well, my mother left for a better life. It may be entirely different for her but for me, it changed nothing at all.

As sudden as my realization was, the process was really slow, one thing at a time. If think it started with something as tiny as a sensation of something odd, misplaced. Everything was familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. I was lying in my bed and I rolled myself on the right side wrapping my duvet around me like I always do. As my eyes peered around at my room one last time before finally closing them to sleep, I tried to understand what felt wrong. All my stuff was here. Shyni, my poor little doll that I have from so long I can't even remember was eying at me with the only one she got left from the bookshelf where she laid next to my favorite books; my first camera, the girly pink camera ornamented with paste jewelery that my mother gave me for my 3rd birthday was hanging on the knob of the closet; and above my desk the pictures of our happy days were mocking me. I closed the eyes and I knew suddenly what it was: the noise! Everything was abnormally silent. No cry, no yelling. Nothing. I could hear myself thinking so loudly now. That was frightening. I raised from my bed, caught my CD player, and filled my ears with the loudest music I could find to shout them out.

Then littles things added up one on each other. Day-to-day little things evolved leading to another routine. All the little habits, like putting four plates when I was laying the table, running to mum to ask her to help with my unruly thick hair, jumping on the couch where my parents where cuddling in an attempt to get their attention back, hearing her laugh, that loud flashing laugh that made me feel safe, all of this was insidiously replaced. And one day Lucas stopped calling for mommy but called for me.

Today was nevertheless an ordinary day, a day like any other since a long time. Today, I awoke, went to school, laugh with my friends, did my duties and when all was over, I went to bed. And just as I slipped into my bed, I looked at the pictures and realized that I spent an entire day without thinking about her once, not only for one second, not even as a faded memory. As if I had forgotten about her, as she didn't exist anymore.

Mother died today.

((OOC: I figured that I could deepen a little bit more Deb's background so here is a crucial moment of her life that took place in NY))

It was love at first sight.


It was love at first sight. That pure and innocent love that only child can experience. She was a brave, level-headed, conciliatory and tender-hearted 7 year's old girl who drove her parents mad by rescuing every injured animal she could come across. They finally had to resolve buying a cage to keep all these new home residents, pigeons mostly, safe even if she suspected now that it was probably more intended to keep the house safe from their excrements. The day they met, Deborah was on one of her famous rescue mission, fighting for the sake of a blind dog who hadn't had enough strength left in his old members to offer any resistance against the kids that were torturing him. Alec happened to be going by this street that day and the rescuer had been rescued in its turn. He was exactly 1 year 7 month and 23 days older than her. What could have been opposite turned out to be complementary and this overconfident, willful, spontaneous and impish young boy became her other one. They spent hours in their spot, playing, bickering, or even simply silently enjoying each other's presence.

Several years passed by and their vow of never part from each other was long broken. He was now QB1 of the high-school team and his life revolved around football, girls, his friends and parties while she was a shutterbug who was hanged out with the geeks and her life revolved around grades, the library, her job, and her family. Freak of fortune dictated that what initially brought them together would inexorably be keeping them apart and they now evolved in opposite worlds, almost unaware of each other.

How could he forget about it? Am I that insignificant to him? I wish I could hate him. It would be so much easier... were the thoughts that ran through Deborah's mind as her steps led her once more to the little square that was once their spot. She felt secured there and like to take refuge in it whenever life's harsh lessons took over her. It was always pretty much deserted as the big square besides it draw most of the hood's locals. The sight of the rusty seesaw draw a smile on her lips. This thing was responsible for a really memorable fall. It wasn't memorable because of the fact that it was painful but rather because it happened in the most humiliating way possible, as she suddenly was lying on the floor, her dress rode up to her stomach. And of course, Alec haven't missed any opportunities he got to tease her about the Mickey panties she were wearing this day.

As she moved toward she noticed the back of a lonely figure seated on one of the bench that she recognized immediately. It was Alec. If there was one thing that she would never have expected, is to find him here and she was unsure about what behavior she should adopt right now. What am I am supposed to do now? Just go back? Talk to him? Ignore him? And what the hell is he doing here? She had to know.

She sat silently next to him. If he was surprised to see her here, he didn't showed it as he stayed perfectly still placidly contemplating the skyline. His voice finally shattered the silence that surrounded them:

“ I didn't expected to see you here. Don't you have something to celebrate?”

Celebrate... How weird that a person with whom she hadn't even exchanged a word in four years remembered these things better than her own father. She was celebrating it, in her own way. After all, turning to sixteen is leaving your kid's life and turn to a grown-up person. What better location to say good-bye to her childhood than here. She replied adopting the same laid-back attitude that he had:

“ This place is perfectly appropriate for that... What is your excuse?

“ Just processing about stuff”.

She turned a scrutinizing gaze on him. His answers were laconic but his tone indicated that he didn't mind to pursue the conversation either so she added : “What's the matter?”

A hint of mischief diffused on his eyes as they caught hers:

“ Since when do you care about some butthead jock issues?”

“ Since when do you talk to nerds?”

He shot a smile at her and, carelessly putting his arm over the bench to face her, carried on :

“ So what's up tufty, are you still dating the wacko?”

Tufty... wow, that brought back a lot of memories. She couldn't help but grin. It was a long time ago. She must have been 8. He had offered her favorite candies, a crispy chocolate sweet filled with a yummy melting fudge and she had stuffed herself with them so much that he joked about the fact that she looked like tufty, his hamster. Tufty died but the silly nickname survived.

“ His name is Antony and no, I don't. Not that it's any of your business”.

An ironic smile slided over his lips. “ C'mon, I'm curious. I'm sure that was hot between you guys! What happened? You got tired of cheering him up during his chess contests or whatever you geeks are into ?”

He obviously haven't got out of the habit of teasing her. She snapped back, trying to hide her amusement “ Ah ah...very funny... You can wipe that smile off your face, cause I'm not going to talk about that with you ”

Alec shrugged “ Suits yourself” and turned his attention back to the skyline. He seemed to be brooding for a few second before adding: “You know, I don't get how you can hang out with these losers. Tough I shouldn't be surprised. You always loved to pick up charity cases so I guess you went from animals to dorks. That's pretty close ”.

Now, that was offensive. Her voice came out cold: “And I don't get how I can lose my time right now talking to a moron”.

He led an inquisitive glance at her, as if he was trying to weight how she would react to his words : “ Look, you deserve better. That's all I meant”.

Deborah raised from the bench in a failed attempt to hide her irritation. Better? Really? And that better was supposed to be what? Some bored full of their own importance kids who couldn't find better occupation than to mess around everyone and waste themselves? When she finally turned around, her pretty eyes were ironically contemplating him “ Better... oh, you mean reach out to your level and jerking around people for fun… maybe making some pranks like the one you did to Caitlin? I guess calling her porky wasn't enough for you?"

He rose up to her level, visibly amused by the whole scene : “C'mon, that was just a joke. I never prey upon the wuss but she was practically begging for it, always stalking me, behind my back like a dog waiting for his stick... It was getting so lame... I just made my point”

Alec didn't even seemed to feel any regret. He never was a sensitive boy but now, this was just pure nastiness and she was starting to be pissed at him :

“ She is not only the sweetest girl I know of, she was also your friend once and you couldn't think of a better way to make your point? The boy I knew would never have done that”

His tone instantly shifted from amused to icy :

“ Caitlin has never been my friend, she was yours. But you're right, you don't know me anymore and that's on you... So do me a favor and stop being so judgy”

His words struck her like a sharpened knife: “Oh my god, you blame me for that?”

“ YOU were the one who ditched me... First, you stood me up and you didn't even cared enough to apologize or explain yourself, damn it. And then every-time I talked to you, you were distant. You needed space, well, I got your message. So don't you dare tell me I'm the bad guy here. You got away from me, not the opposite”

Deborah couldn't control herself anymore and all these feelings long repressed emerged, taking a hold of her. Her gaze darkened, filled with anger as she snapped out: “Un-f*cking-believable! You're the most self-centered person I ever met. You pretended to be my friend, and you never even thought that there might be a good reason for the way I withdrawn into myself like that? No, it had to be about you...Wanna know the reason now? ”, she pursued unaware of the tears that slowly arose from her eyes as she was pulling her heart out at him, “ I just found out that my brother was sick and that he was never going to get better. Oh! And my mother? She just vanished! One day she was here with all her her great speeches about the fact that I was her precious little girl and the next one, she was gone!”, her voice was shaking with anger and sorrow, “So yeah, I'm really sorry I wasn't paying attention to you when you went on and on about how much fun you had with your friends and I'm sorry I bailed on you but you... You swore you would be there for me, you were everything to me and you left me. All alone. I needed you and you left me!”

He had remained strangely quiet, staring gently at her. And as he came closer to her, his arms slowly slided around her in a comforting hug :

“ I didn't know, I'm sorry. I'm here now”.

Her first instinct was to resist but all her anger had vanished and resting her head against his chest as tears were now freely running through her cheeks, she surrendered.

Great post, lana As soon as Deb and Alec sat down and started talking, I could tell a lot about their characters from the way you wrote their dialog and reactions to each other. :) I'd love to read the continuation when you have time for it.

Ok, moving on to the next OOC Prompt. Because it looks like several people participating in the last prompt still had sections they needed to finish, please feel free to post another entry in that prompt even though we've moved on. (In fact, I have a post that's half-written for the last entry that I'll probably post in a day or two.)



OOC PROMPT 09: Motivational Posters

Create a motivational poster for one of your (or someone else's) characters. It can be satirical, goofy, or just plain accurate. I'm going to give this prompt about 1 month based on the rate of the last one and because this one does take a little bit of effort and image editing skills.

If you need an image editor btw, Paint should suffice for this. Or you can use:
http://www.gimp.org/







To get us started off with examples, I made a few :)

((Post from the last prompt.

This obviously takes place some time in the future. Probably in college, though maybe a little earlier or maybe a little later.))


Someone must have slandered Esteban Morales, for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested.

When the doorbell rang a little after 11am, Esteban woke up surrounded by books and beer bottles. He stirred awake, wiping the crust from his groggy eyes. In his sleep he had rolled over onto one of the books, and it was digging into his back. Grumbling, he pulled it out from underneath him and tossed it onto the floor. It tumbled onto the floor like a dead bird fluttering then landed with its title staring face-up.

Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads

He didn't know why his girlfriend put so much stock in these shitty books. It's not like raising kids was going to be rocket science. He had more important shit to worry about other than raising kids--providing for them looked like it was going to be far more of an issue. And besides, why did he need advice from a bunch of crusty, old white people?

But, azucarita didn't feel the same way despite how many times he told her she was overreacting and being stupid and emotional. And after their last "conversation" ended in a shower of tears, multiple objects being thrown at him, along with a threat to call off their shotgun elopement (which he knew she didn't really mean), he decided he might as well skim the fucking thing so he'd at least be able to BS his way through their next conversation. So, he'd been up reading it till 3am... or maybe later... he couldn't tell since he'd lost track of when he fell asleep.

The doorbell rang again, and he rolled off the bed, grabbing the nearest pair of pants on the floor and shaking them on. He stumbled through his apartment and past the cluttered living room. He could hear his roomate's television playing through his door. He leaned into it and grumbled:

"What the fuck? You can't answer the door?"

"I'm busy." came his roomate's lame excuse.

Esteban rolled his eyes, and spotted a bong that had long since burnt out was sitting on the coffee table. He picked it up, knocked on his roomate's door, and shove it into him. "Hide that shit."

After his roomate nodded and disappeared behind his door, the doorbell rang again. Jesus f***in' Christ. If this was another fucking Jehovah's Witness, he was gonna tear them a new one. Esteban trudged across the living room, and opened the door. His eyes widened, and something in his gut told him something wasn't right. Two police officers standing outside. He hadn't done anything that bad for a while now. Maybe they were here for his roommate?

"I'm officer Jensen, and this is officer Morrow." A tall brunette woman with a severe look introduced herself and motioned to her partner, a slightly shorter, robust black woman. "Are you Esteban Morales?"

He hesitated and then answered, "...uh-yeah?"

"I have a warrant for your arrest," she said, flashing a sheet of paper before him. He took it, dumbfounded, and squinted at it.

"Stand against the wall with your hands behind your head."

"What the f***? I didn'--"

"Failure to cooperate with an officer of the law is a criminal offense and will only exacerbate your situation."

"Exacerbate my--what fucking situation? I didn't do nothing." He looked down, skimming the document. "What is this? 'Terror watch list?'"

"Mr. Morales," Jensen said with an irritated tone in her voice. She put her hand on her hip, resting it over her baton. "Stand against the wall with your hands behind your head."

F***! He hadn't done anything wrong! F***! F*** f*** f*** f*** s***! He crumpled the warrant into a tight ball and angrily tossed it at her feet. Then, he laced his fingers behind his head and turned into the wall. The other officer, Morrow, began reading his Miranda rights.

You have the right to remain silent...

"This is such bulls***," Esteban growled as Jensen patted him roughly down the sides.

...Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney...

She patted down the inside of his legs and in-between them, and he jumped. "'Hey! Watchete!"

"We speak English here, Mr. Morales."

"That was English, cunt."

...If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you...

"Just stay still," Jensen snapped. She grabbed one of his wrists and twisted his arm behind his back, then did the same with the other and cuffed him harder than necessary. When she was done, she backed away, dusting off her hands.

...Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you? Morrow finished and looked at Esteban, impatiently waiting for his answer.

He glared at her.

"Answer her question." Jensen said severely.

He faked a thick Mexican accent, "Ay... ah... no unnerstand."

"Maybe we should call La Migra instead," Jensen smirked.

"Maybe you should suck my balls."

"Aww... what do you think Morrow? Does he understand his rights?"

"I think so." Morrow nodded.

The officers walked him outside to the police car, shoved him in the back, and slammed the door shut. They stood outside for several minutes, leaving Esteban waiting for them to return. He kept wondering the how the hell we was going to explain this to his girlfriend. She was going to f***ing kill him.

He glanced outside at the two cops. They had just finished talking to one another. Morrow circled to the front of the car and climbed into the driver's seat. Jensen, however, strutted to the opposite door in the backseat and climbed in next to Esteban. Her head was lowered, and her police hat concealed her face from him, but she had a knowing smile on her lips. She raised her head. As soon as her eyes appeared under the brim of her hat, they smouldered at him through her thick lashes.

It all clicked together. Esteban glanced at the car's interior, and was it just his imagination, or was the backseat of this cop car a little bigger than what he was used to? And... wait... were the windows of this car tinted? And didn't Rafael mention something last month about how Esteban needed one last hurrah--a bachelor's party to celebrate life before it got shot to hell by an unexpected bundle of mucous and joy?

"Esteban Morales, you've been a very bad man," she scolded him with a naughty smile creeping across her lips. She tossed off her cap and shook her head. Long, glamorous tresses cascaded over her shoulders.

Morrow revved up the car and started backing out of the driveway, and Jensen grabbed a handle on the car's roof. She stood up. Her hips swayed the way that only strippers can make them move, and she gave him a good view of her body. She thumbed open the buttons on her uniform, revealing her whimper-inducing cleavage in a push-up black bra--the kind that made a man think he might get a glimpse of nipple if only she bent the right way.

Esteban shifted; his jeans were becoming uncomfortable. He leaned back and widened his legs, scooting his ass along the seat to adjust them. Jensen unbuttoned her uniform down to her navel. Her eyes moved deliberately down his body to his crotch, and lingered there hungrily. She bit her lip, and glanced up at his face. Their eyes met. He grinned.

Furry - Loren's the one on the right because I imagine Cynthia makes the one on the left's expression A LOT more than he does :D

((OOC: This is the closing chapter of Deb's story of the last prompt))

All this happened, more or less.

They've secretly kept seeing each other. A line had been crossed and everything was now different, complicated. She haven't talked about it to anyone, not even to her best friends. Especially not to them. She could only picture their reaction. Caitlin would probably felt betrayed and Maura. Well. Given that she was engaged on a personal feud against him since Caitlin prank, the last episode occurring at lunch when he spilled all her tray's contents on her clothes by a supposedly unwitting push, she would probably not welcome that news. Not taking sides was really hard and at times, she felt like she wasn't supportive enough of her friends but she didn't wanted to get dragged into an useless public confrontation with him either. Telling Maura was just out of the question. It was nobody's business anyway.

Besides, what would she say? She was still unable to express it clearly for herself so what would she say to someone else? Since it started, they never really seriously talked about it. It was not a no-strings relationship, since she made it pretty clear that if he just wanted a fucking buddy he would have to go looking somewhere else but it was not a conventional one either and she didn't really cared about it. What good naming what was going on between them would do, huh? For her, naming is equal to defining. And defining might give some insight but it's also reductive. If you take a dog, for example. Saying that it's a dog allow you to know a lot of things about it: that it is an animal, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora that has usually four legs, and a whole other list of characteristics. But then it's just a dog. All that she knew was that when she was with him, she was herself and that she felt carefree once again. He was challenging. She knew him probably better than anyone else but he still managed to surprise her, to make her forget about her burden and that's all that mattered. So no, she didn't even knew exactly what was going on between them nor did she wanted to. And now was even less the time to think about how she felt about him. What was the point? Realizing how much it will hurt to lose him? Again. Burying her feelings and pretending that everything was fine like she always did was way easier.

She had almost left the hallway when a familiar voice stopped her:

"Hey beauty!"

Great... the school dickhead wants to put up his favorite show with me as his special guest. I wonder what stupid line he's gonna use. She didn't have the time and she was definitely not in the mood to play these dumb-ass games. Alec was probably already there waiting for her, so she had to quickly get rid of him. She didn't even bothered to stop and kept walking as he quickened his step to catch up with her :

"Nice legs. When do they open?"

Very inventive... Another one who pictured her as an easy target just because she was nice. Sure, she was nice and would rather avoiding conflicts unless they're necessary but that didn't mean that she was defenseless. In the contrary, having to figure out everything by herself and having to rely only on herself at such a young age gave her enough self-confidence to trust that she was able to take care of herself just fine. Needless to say that this kind of lame comment had absolutely no chance of affecting her in any way.

"Nice mouth. When does it shut?" she replied without even bothering to glance at him.

But this wasn't sufficient to kick him out as he kept going: "You like to play hard to get, huh?"

Deborah snickered : "Yeah, you totally got me"
That doesn't bothered him at all as he went on, his thin lips now displaying a cocky smile: "So, what would it take to get a little kiss from you?"

Irony had visibly no effect on him. She should have realized that he was probably too dumb to detect it. She tried a third approach hoping that he would get the hint this time :"Chloroform".

He finally halted, mumbling a pathetic : "bitch"

Good lord, he finally got it! It was about time... As she pursued her way she prudently glanced back to make sure that he wasn't following her anymore. The way was clear. Good. Now all she had to do is take a deep breath and prepare mentally for what lay ahead. She was torn between the excitement of seeing him and the reluctance of having to assume the role of bearer of bad news.

When she opened the door, he was as predicted already there, lazily leaned back against one the wall of the deserted swimming-pool locker room, apparently in a good mood. She approached silently and as their eyes met his grin had faded considerably as he realized that the -I need to see you - message he received earlier wasn't going to be necessarily a pleasant one. He automatically moved toward her, with his famous seductive smile carved onto his face :

"Look, if it is about earlier, I'm sorry"

Earlier? Oh yeah, the lunch incident! If only it was that... She smirked: "Liar"

"Alright, I'm not sorry. But I'm sorry you witnessed it", he admitted without departing from his smile.

Deborah couldn't help but to adopt a quizzical smile on that one "Yeah, I bet you are... You know there's a thing called self-questioning. You should try it sometimes"

"Hum... don't know 'bout that. Sounds boring", he shrugged.

Alec really knew how to carry the role of the fatuous jock to perfection. That was sometimes troubling how much it felt true. She sighed: "What am I doing with you?"

He frowned : "Well, let me think..." before adding devilishly " Didn't we sleep together once? Or was it twice?"

Boys... do they love to brag about that... She scoffed back:

"It must have been once. I never make the same mistake twice"

"Ouch you're hurting my feelings now", he replied with a faked offended voice.

She raised an eyebrow: "So you have feelings? That's good to know".

He was definitely not in the mood for a serious conversation but as much as she enjoyed bantering with him she couldn't keep doing as if nothing was happening. She was leaving and as much as she wanted to just brush aside that fact, she needed to face it.

"We need to talk", all amusement had definitely departed from her traits as the words squeezed out of her mouth.

He casted a scrutinizing look at her before answering:

"All right"

Deborah felt suddenly wordless, as if all the words that were rushing into her head suddenly disconnected from her body. Oh god, how should I announce that? I could joke about it. Like: Oh, by the way I'm leaving. T'was nice meeting you... I'm not sure he would take it well. Maybe I could just say that I'm moving? Nope too blunt… Shoot, he's looking at me, expecting me to tell him about it. I really have to say something now. She swallowed and throbbed hastily " I.. I don't know how to put that... hum. You know that I told you that it was difficult for me these days. Well, it got worse. My father had to sell the house and got us a new place to live. But, it's miles away from here". He remained silent, impassive and even if she knew it was probably a facade it was enough to disconcert her and she began to falter "So... what I'm trying to say is that I have to leave soon".

" When?", he replied in a muffled voice.

"Tomorrow", she confessed reluctantly.

"Tomorrow? And you're telling me now?", he snapped out.

She felt the warm of a blush spread to her cheeks :"I just... I'm sorry... I know that I should have talked about it before but, I guess I didn't wanted to acknowledge it. I was hoping that something would happened. Some kind of miracle. That I wouldn't have to leave... I know it's silly" But as she was talking she noticed that he retreated again into a mutinous silence and was avoiding her glance. She slowly slided closer to him and stretched up to catch his sight:

"Talk to me"

" What do you want me to say... I mean... it's not as if I could do anything about it, is it?" he snapped back in a tone betraying his irritation.

As Alec fell back into an evocative silence she was trying her best to hold back her tears. She knew this was gonna be hard but she didn't expected it to be that heart-breaking. She knew how powerless he felt His frustration and anger echoed hers. She understood how upset he was about it but taking it out on her was unfair. It was not as if she could do something about it either. The pang she felt spreaded out insidiously and she really didn't want to break down in front of him. If it was all that he had to say, there was no reason for her to linger here. But as she was about to turn aside from him, she felt his arms surrounding her and bringing her closer in a firm embrace. She couldn't help but to nuzzle her face into his neck, elated with the sudden proximity, inhaling the heady scent of his skin and feeling the warmth of his breath on her nape one more time. He whispered to her ear:

"I'm sorry"

And as she raised her eyes to immerse them into his own, all trace of anger had disappeared from his glance, replaced by lust. He eagerly claimed her lips, squeezing her even closer to him as their kiss deepened and she gave herself over to his kiss, feeling her breath dangerously speeding. As their lips finally parted, casting off the urge to playfully nip his skin she pulled herself slightly away from him to a secure distance in an attempt to recover her senses. The only thought that emerged from her clouded brain was that she wanted to dwell on that moment, stay in his arms just a little bit longer. But another thought emerged as she came to the sore realization that the more she would stay, the more it will kindle her feelings towards him and the harder it would be to leave. Carefully avoiding his sight, she let her voice out in a tone that she was unsuccessfully striving to keep firm:

" So, I guess this is good-bye"

After a brief silence his voice raised again, and his tone had recovered his infamous teasing nature:

"You're not going to cry on me, right, cause last time you were rubbing your snotty nose on my shirt."

"No I did not-...", she tried to interject, but he just kept going;

"... That was gross."

"That was tears-"

"... no it was worse than gross, you're just... dirty... And I mean it in a bad way"

"Shut up!", she chuckled. He had once more succeeded in bringing a smile to her face at the most unexpected moment with his very "personal" way of cheering her up. He returned her smile and they stared at each other in one of these wordless moment where time stretched until she finally regained time consciousness. She directed a faint smile at him:

" I should go. I've got to help packing".

As she drifted away from him, he caught her hand:

"This ain't good-bye. I'll wait for you"

If he had told her this years ago she would probably have believed it. But the age of innocence was long gone and too many wounds had turned her into a hard-headed person. She knew this was just a sweet lie. She would be away from him for a long time and with the swarm of girls who were hanging round him like bees around honey, he'd certainly broke his word at some point. She had not been enough for her mother to stay, she wasn't enough for her father to care. Why would she be enough for him to wait?

She softly replied "Yes it is" before getting out of his grip and disappearing.

((OOC: I'm sure there's still a lot of room for improvement and I'm still not 100% happy about it but I'll probably never be so here it is))

((OOC: Pardon if I didn't even pretend to use a first line
This takes place several months after the last post))

"Jo? What's wrong? Jo?" Charles called, pounding on the door to the bathroom that she had locked for some reason. She didn't answer, except to continue with a high pitched keening that was coming from the back of her throat. This wasn't happening, she just needed to get up and look at that little stick again, fix her pants, and then it wouldn't be true. That stick wouldn't be blue, or the box wouldn't say that blue meant...

There was a metallic clicking sound as Charles broke the lock of his own house, and if either of them had bothered to look they would have seen fine metallic dust littering the threshold of the bathroom. Charles rushed to her side and kneeled next to her, an expression of panic in his face. "What's wrong, what's wrong," he muttered, looking around frantically. Finally he noticed her one hand clenched into a fist, and Jo nervelessly let him open her hand up and take the pregnancy test out of her hand.

He stood up and went to pick up the box on the counter top, leaving her lying on the floor without his comforting, if trembling arms. Her whining took on another tone, one of slight anger that was barely audible under her despair.

"My god." he said, the first time she'd ever heard him say such a thing. He did swear, a lot, but never in any sort of a religious way. He sat down next to her and pulled her up into a comforting embrace as she sobbed against his shoulder. They sat like that for a long time, long enough for Charles to worry about his parents getting home, but he figured that both of them would leave them be, that they wouldn't mind that he had a hysterical girl in the bathroom.

He stroked her hair gently, and then asked, "I am the father, right?"

Her fist came out of nowhere and she stomped to her feet, turning in a moment from despair to towering rage. "Who the f*** else could be the father! D***t, Charles, I'm a whore, your friggin whore, and now I'm pregnant and my mom will hate me and Mitchell will call me a slut and you're going to hit me and-" She was talking faster and faster and her sobs were getting louder and more incoherent.

Charles managed to climb somewhat heavily to his feet, she had hit him rather hard on his face and he was a little disoriented, but he took her face in his hands and shook it, gently. "I'm not going to hit you."

The look she gave him then was enough to make him absolutely certain that he loved her, and she stepped closer to him and finally, finally stopped crying. This was probably the first time that they had been standing this close to each other and he hadn't felt the slightest stirring of lust. Strange. Was that what love was? That he wanted her to be happy outside of when they were making out or screwing?

She was still puffy faced and rather incoherent, but she finally stepped back and asked, "S-s-so, w-w-w-whadda we do now?"

Charles didn't take his arms from around her, she needed it, and said, with his fingers unconciously tapping her waist as he listed each option. "Well, you can have it, you can marry me and have it, or you can get rid of it."

She pulled away and started chewing on one knuckle, her foot tapping repeatedly on the tile floor. Charles didn't know what he was supposed to do, so he took a step back and watched her foot move hypnotically up and down. It seemed to take forever, but finally she sighed loudly. "I don't want my mother or Mitchell to find out about this. Ever."

Charles looked at her in confusion. Even if she did decide to get rid of it, they'd have to get pills at the pharmacy, or go to a doctor, and her mom was a doctor. Anything like that she would find out about. Jo didn't give any sort of a smile, she just grabbed his wrist and dragged him downstairs and outside, his feet slipping for a second in the pile of metal shavings he made an hour or a life time ago.

She pulled him to the greenhouse that his father maintained as a hobby, and Charles still hadn't the foggiest what she wanted in there. Dad grew spices and flowers in there, spending long summer afternoons and winter mornings in the humid, low growing forest that the homemade construction made. "Your dad showed me this", she said as they went into the greenhouse, so warm after the cool fall day outside.

She walked unerringly towards one bank of plants, and then she took a double handful of one leafy item, and ate it. "Jo!" he called out sharply, knowing that there were plenty of poisonous plants, plenty of strange things, nothing much edible without being cooked.

She doubled over and retched. "Tansy flower. It's an abortificent. Mitchell and mother will never-" and then she couldn't speak for the vomit in her throat and mouth, or the blood that was starting to seep down her legs.*

Charles drew back, disgusted, but finally, finally, well after he heard his parents return home, and well after he heard them looking for them, she finished, and he walked her home. He helped her climb up the trellis outside her room and helped with the window. She gave him a sickly, forced grin, and disappeared under the covers, after pulling a trash can to her bedside so she could vomit if she needed to.

((OOC: *Pardon the dramatization of what tansy flower does, this actually takes several hours))

Hehe, I'm loving everyone's posters. Nice to see one for Carmen. And that "Attractiveness" one... I imagine that getting a bunch of men piled on top of you might be an "up" for... *ahem*... one of the football players at Brooklake. Loren's poster is really cute too. I can totally imagine Donnie writing a check like that, and I giggle when I think about him writing "WHAT NOW BITCHES?" in the memo.

Also, furry and lana, great posts to finish up the last prompt. You both wrote some really touching moments between the characters in your stories.

Ha, these are really awesome! I've been having a chuckle at them all along and figured I'd say something :P I tried finding some pics that would work but the only thing I mostly came across were boob-related motivational posters xD Loved the Lilith one btw, and how the aggressive cat is ginger :P

Ghani: Heheh, boob posters work too! They are universally loved. I'm glad you liked Lilith's poster... I was having trouble thinking of the right picture and was going to use Courtney Love, but at the last second I remembered that cat video!

Atropa: Well, seeing as how I spent this morning making a TON of these posters (sooo many now), I'm ready to post the Riley one. (I don't know who Julian is though... if I said Julian before then I meant Riley)
http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i205/superwuman/mot_riley01.jpg


I've also got one (well, more than one... but here's one) for Loren.

If you don't get the reference then here is the video. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPsd5BhDNu4) The first 1:20 minutes is good and the true WTFness of it peaks at around 5 minutes in. If you manage to watch the whole thing... sorry.





One more Mitch:

And one last poster. I didn't include a name, but I'm sure you can probably figure out who it refers to.

robo - Ah, okay. Maybe you did say Riley, and I got him mixed up with Julian. Even though they're nothing alike. :p (Julian is a new character of mine in VtM. I think he and Lola would've gotten along like fire hoses (to quote dear Jeanette (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqNlJ-K4d-0). ;) ))
Oh, and Courtney Love for Lilith... That would have been fun to see. I used to be such a fan of Hole.

Love all the posters :D Deb's one can actually go both way. Here are my last lame poster attempts:

Matt & Josh since the last one didn't really applied to them :

And Jude:

The Jude one is probably untrue but I couldn't help thinking of him when I saw this :giggler:

It must be an age-based negative modifier.

What I want to know is how the hell did that baby manage to get that armor class??? Did someone put plate mail on him? (AC: 2, -4 dex modifier => AC: 6... at least in 2nd edition).

I guess they're using those weird 3rd edition rules that make sense instead of using counter-intuitive THACO calculations. *sigh*

Yikes! Okay, I've gotta think a little more about a new prompt. I think I have a good idea for it, but I need to find the right source material. I'll get a new one up tomorrow.

In the meantime, I better unload the rest of these poster I have sitting on my hard drive. :D

Moving on to the next prompt because I feel like it...

OOC PROMPT 11: Dating Game Questions

Your character is a contestant on a cheesy dating show. Behind the curtain is some SMOKING HOT babe/dude waiting to take you out on a date, but first you must answer a series of absurd hypothetical questions.

How does your character respond?

The Questions:
Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?
Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Esteban's responses:

Q1. Imagine we can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

"I'd pick you up and take you sky diving. Then, we'd go out for dinner at... uh..."
*thinks of the most expensive restaurant he knows*
*realizes he doesn't know any*
"...the local brewery. And after that I'd take you out dancing anywhere you wanna go."


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

"Uh... lean to one side and hope it comes out silent."


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

"The outside."


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

"I'd be devilishly rugged and swarthy with dark eyes and a hard..."
*grins*
"...um ...muscles."


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

"I'd be making you feel really good... either that or we'd be robbing a bank together."


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

"I'd be naked."


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

"I'd let you sit on couch and drink all my beer while I make you dinner. Then I'd give you a full body massage and let you lay back and relax while I kiss you anywhere you want me to."


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

"Uh..."
*laughs*
*laughing too hard to answer this question*
*calms down*
"...something that comes from me."


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

"I'd give him the biggest wedgie of his life."


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

"Cause her little snot-nosed brother still hasn't recovered from that wedgie I gave him for kicking me in the shin."

The Backrubber Deliberate Gentle Sex Dreamer (DGSD)

Lusty but indirect. Kind, but also using friendship as a means to sex. Oh, that feels gooood. You are The Backrubber.

We call you “The Backrubber” because you straddle that fine line between coming on to someone and just treating her nicely. Backrubs are just one example; you’d meet for coffee, or talk about books/movies, or even argue a little bit, all the while mostly preferring to screw.

Your indirect approach is not some evil trickery, but rather a result of your open mind. You’d enjoy either love or sex, but the latter definitely doesn’t require the former. While you are responsible and ambitious, you absolutely DON’T have uptight views on relationships. So ultimately, you just enjoy a woman, and let things take their course. If she wants you, great. If not, that’s fine too.

Though you’re not thinking too much about Love at this point in your life, odds are, when the time comes, you’ll be very happy settling down. Your ideal mate is gentle and horny, just like you.

Donnie's Responses:


Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

"We'd visit the Hadron collider in Switzerland, eat out with the scientists, and talk about all the research they're doing. After dinner, we'd sneak into the Planetarium and lie there together, holding hands and looking at the stars."


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

"The risk:reward ratio is too high to not go to the bathroom."


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

"Her brain."
*double takes*
"Wait... I mean, not when it's in my hand. I don't want to dissect her or anything."
*nervous laugh*


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

*blanks out*
"Uh... smart... mysterious... Vulcan-esque guy?"


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

"We'd be solving the mysteries of quantum entanglement together... and I might not have any clothing since that's been a reoccurring motif in my dreams."


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

"My lab coat. I also have a really cool Michael Jackson jacket."


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

"I'd give you several muscle relaxants and see if you wanted to talk about your day."


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

*nose crinkles*
"Photons? So I can see you?"


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

"Take a picture of him and put it on the internet. Make fun of him, and make the meme go viral."


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

"Optimizing our previous relationship."

Here are Loren's answers:

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
We'd go to see an old classic, on Broadway, because first dates are too important to risk a first run show, and then have ice cream on a ferry ride.

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
Pass it... why would I have brought a helium balloon in the first place?

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?
Hands. They're so expressive and they have so many little joints and you can just stare at them and play with them for hours without running out of new things.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
I don't read romance novels... Positively?

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
A climactic romantic scene... Or a sad unrequited love scene. Maybe Marius and Cosette meeting after the barricade? Or when Eponine dies? Or... I need to get Les Mis out of my head.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
Whatever it is, it'd be orange, formal, and have shiny shoes.

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
A nice dinner and a night at a classical symphony. Calming stuff.

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Rose petals, they're pretty easy to clean up between events and have a lot of effect.

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
It happens so often I barely even notice anymore...

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?
I had a girlfriend? Did I stand her up for play practice? Crud...

Lilith's answers:



Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

"Holy shit, anywhere? Okay...first we'd grab a bite to eat, I don't really care where, then hit the dancefloor at the best alt club in town. Either that, or go to see our (my) favorite band live."

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

"Psh, is that all? I'd just be quiet about it, done it a hundred times in class."

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

"Hmm..really depends. Really, there's no clear cut answer for this, but I do like a guy with nice hair and a tight body."

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

"Ugh, what? Romance novel?" *smirk* "You mean girl porn? Fine...I'd be a leather-clad vixen with dominatrix tendencies."
*laughs*

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

"Knowing my dreams, something really weird. We'd probably be trying to get somewhere really common, like my place, but never getting there, then suddenly finding out the whole neighborhood is on top of a volcano about to erupt and I'm not wearing any shoes."

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

"That plaid micro-mini skirt I have to smuggle out of the house to wear, corset top and knee-length leather boots."

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

"I'd get us a few drinks, some food and something decent to watch on tv then see how well my hands-on "relaxing" techniques do..." *smirk*

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

"My everlasting scorn if you screw up. No, really...it would happen."

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

"Resist kicking it back, then count this as an excellent reminder why I don't want kids."

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

"I don't really have "exes", but for the sake of the argument he'd probably be pissed off about his injured male ego. That's usually the case."





Faye's answers:



Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

"Oooh...well, we'd first go to a nice restaurant, I love those tavern-themed ones, but anything interesting and out of the ordinary is good, then take a walk down the beach, just in time to see the sun set, lie down on the sand and cuddle."

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

"Um...I can usually be pretty quiet, but I'd attempt getting to the bathroom first."

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

"I could say something stereotypical like eyes or hair but it's really not that simple. When I'm attracted to someone, it's the overall person I like. There has to be -something- about them."

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

"Hmm...bodacious girl-genius in a steampunk setting."

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

"Flying in an endless blue sky, and exploring the strange but wonderful landscape below."

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

"Heh...something delicate and feminine, the sort of thing I rarely wear because it's so damn inconvenient."

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

"We'd both hop in my double hammock in the backyard, with glasses of freshly-squeezed orange juice at hand and some snacks. I usually go there to read when it's warm outside, and it's very soothing."

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

"Um..." *is unsure what to say here*

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

"Expect a parent to be around and say/do something about it, and rant about their parenting skills if they don't."

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

"Probably because he's drunk, or otherwise oblivious why he's an ex. The fact that he's yelling at people in a bar should be a clue though."

Adrien's answers (yeah, I know that RP isn't on this forum anymore, but whatever. :P );


Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Hmmm. We'd start by staking out a Sabbat hideout, and from there we'd move on to actual staking, among other things, once we're good and ready. You would have your own choice of weapon, of course. Personally, I'd recommend the katana; it's light, it's quiet, swift, and it's got precision. Though it does of course require a bit of practice to wield correctly, so if you're inexperienced or simply want something more low-key, a shotgun will also get the job done, if maybe require more than one hit.


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

*disbelieving silence*

*unimpressed silence*

*annoyed silence, and brows furrowing in a look of "Are you friggin' kidding me?!"*


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

Any that's got a pulse.


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Dark and brooding, probably. Romance novelists have such a tendency to simplify. Though I suppose they have to, considering their target audience.


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

Something useful. I don't waste time on barren matters. Even in my dreams.


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

I don't dress sexy. It's redundant; where I'm going, I don't intend to be seen.


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

By leaving you alone. Solitude is underrated.


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Again, something useful, such as self-defence training, or target practice.


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Presuming for the sake of argument that he, or she, would even get that far in the first place - which, for the record, I highly doubt - I would probably see to it that social services were called: Six year-olds should be in bed at that time of night, not wandering the park.


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Considering the closest thing I have to an ex these days is someone I once tried to dispose of, that would probably be it.

Ghanima Atreides

Okay, got more!

Lavinia's this time:




Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

"Bungee jumping expedition in a kickass mountain area. Come on, everyone likes bungee jumping...right?"


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

*snorts derisively* What are you, five?


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

"Ass. Come on, gotta love a nice, tight, grabbable ass."


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

"Adora Belle Dearheart-esque, because she kicks ass. Who's that, you ask? Read Pratchett, go on! Or, alternately, Google it."


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?


"I think there's a fairly high probability at least one of us would be a face-cutting serial killer. Or faceless, omnipresent entity that can control space-time. Or-" *looks around, falls silent, smirking to self"


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

"So many choices, so little time. How do you feel about latex?" *wiggles brows suggestively*


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?


"What better way to shake off a stressful day than a night out partying? Unless you're a lightweight or something, in which case we probably won't get very far."


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

*snicker* "Just don't pass out drunk and you won't have to find out."


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

"Yell 'Hey, brat! Yeah, you! Don't let me catch you anywhere near here again or you'll be in for a serious whooping!' "

*looks around again, notices a few uncomfortable looks*

"I wouldn't, obviously, but it scares 'em off."


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

"That's not nearly as important as the reason he would be yelling a few moments later..."

Rio's answers:


Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Oh, we'd totally go to Berlin, for the Anton Corbijn exhibition there. I'm dying to see it. After that, we'd go for a tour around the city and immortalize all the beautiful sceneries there. I'd nag you into modelling for me a little bit. And then we'd have dinner at the restaurant of your choice.


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

Seriously...? You want to know how I handle my bowel movements? Uh....


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

Eyes, and arms. Definitely arms. If they're toned, that is. Oh, and nice, rich hair. I've never gotten some guys' ambitions to look like a cue ball. Seriously. What's up with that? Not that I wouldn't go out with them if the chemistry worked, I'm just sayin'...


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Hmmm... Slender, part Italian youth, with a generous smile, big heart, and a devilish twinkle in the eyes. *grins* And for good reason, too.


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

Taking an exam, probably. I swear, school work is haunting me even in my sleep. So either that, or arguing. I tend to do that a lot in my dreams.
*carefree shrug*
Unresolved issues; we all got 'em.


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

I think I'd go for something casual, actually. Fancy stuff like suits and ties makes me feel awkward, and I find that people are way sexier when they're comfortable.


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

Heh, you wouldn't need to have had a long day for me to do that. But alright. Let's see... I'm told I have really talented hands... *wiggles eyebrows suggestively* ... so I'd probably start by giving you a backrub, while drawing you a bath. Then I'd let you soak while I order takeout - you don't want me cooking for you, trust me - before joining you in the tub. After that, we'd eat, and just veg out in front of the TV, until we fall asleep, all cuddled up.


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Uhh... *wicked grin* ... I think I'd better not answer that one... Let's just say it's something I've given to others, and they have all seemed to enjoy it.


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

I kick him right back. How else is the little brat gonna learn? You get what you give.


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

I have no idea... But if they're yelling at me about it, I'm sure we'd find out.

Decided to have a little fun, and do Damian's (http://vtmbloodlinesrpg.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=cast&action=display&thread=30). :p


Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

"Imagine"? *raises eyebrow* ... Very well. As I rarely make uninformed decisions, I would of course have acquainted myself with your interests and preferences, found one or more that coincides with my own, and arranged for something that we would both enjoy. Since I do not yet know these things, I cannot give a more specific answer at this time.


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

With these kinds of questions, you needn't worry about a first date.


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

It is not as much about body parts, as it is about posture. I appreciate a woman that knows how to carry herself. And a long, elegant neck.


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

A refined gentleman with an air of cultivation, and electrifying potency.


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

We would be enjoying the fruits of the successful execution of my plan for world domination.


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

I have always found Armani to have a keen understanding of how to appropriately design their suits to be both exquisite and fashionable, as well as tastefully sensual.


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

I would treat you to a glass of wine, dinner, and pleasant conversation.


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Anything you might desire. As long as you have proven worthy of it.


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Preposterous. He wouldn't dare.


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Preposterous. She wouldn't dare.

Sienna:

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
Uh.. what? I mean.. I don't usually chose. Uh, I guess.. a nice restaurant where you can spoil me. But I'm not a big eater. Uhm, maybe a picnic in a park or something. Ug! That involved food, too! I'm not good at this game!
Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
Are you kidding me?! Ladies don't fluff.
Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?
Oh my god back, shoulders, arms, eyes... I could go on and on and on...
Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
Isn't that smut? My mom reads those things. I dunno.. uhh.. A coy, beautiful, sensual woman with luscious, long brown locks and enchanting, come-hither eyes. Geez, ok, I don't know. I'm no novelist..
Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
I've been having weird dreams about stealing cars that travel through time so probably that. I mean, what the hell??
Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
*giddy, coy smirk and shoulder shimmy*
The racy, next to nothing little number I just got from Frederick's of Hollywood. Only if you've been a good boy.
Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
I'd make sure you were nice and comfy on the couch with a beer or a scotch and wear above outfit while burning cooking you dinner. And then I'd make sure to rub you.. down.
Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Gawd I had to read this question like ten times. I kept seeing shower se-
*clears throat*
Compliments. Nothing beats a good ego stroking.
*flashes a smile*
Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
Command you to beat the ever loving shit out of him!! Who the hell kicks a girl in the shin?!?
Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Katie
Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
Probably dinner and dancing, hard to mess that up, and good for both of us to know if one of us manages to mess up a perfect cliche.

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
Change the subject onto something obscure in modern physics to bore you to not pay attention when I go ahead and fart. Recover attention by laughing elegantly and saying I must be being utterly dull.

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man?
Ummmm... eyes? Other than the blatantly obvious of course.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
Dancer's body, caramel hair and extreme haughtiness of bearing, because you never see adverbs in these things. They really aren't that terrible!

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
If I were sleeping now I wouldn't be answering these stupid questions. If I were sleeping later and dreaming about you, it'd be surprising.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
That lovely, exploitative piece from my last recital. It had less than a yard of fabric and lots of beads. The boys at the studio loved those things.

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
A backrub, and a sympathetic ear, and some advice, either sincere or witty, depending on your mood.

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Water. Body odor is absolutely unacceptable in any circumstance.

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
I'd be too startled to react. What kind of little twerp kicks a girl?

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?
I probably made him feel mentally inferior. Poor dear, can't take a bit of intellectual conversation without feeling small.

((Dang, Katie's a b*tch))

Dearest Lena:

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Depends a little on what you're like, but it'll definitely be something unconventional. Nothing like a little bit of a shock the the system to figure you out *playful, coy look*

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

*laughs amusedly, playful teasing but also a little unimpressed* I can see you date a lot....

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

Lips. And the eyes.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Ah... elven, probably. I'm the tall, slender type.

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

Oh. I'd be with MI5 and you'd be a supervillain in your underwater lair. *flirty* I'd be your Vicki Anderson if you'll be my Thomas Crown.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

*ever so slightly smouldering look* Nothing. Or a silk bedsheet at most....

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

Your favourite drink... and a scented oil massage... and we'll see how tired you are....

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Whatever you deserve.

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Get the parents to discipline the kid, or threaten to burn it's house down if it does it again. *silence* What? He should pick on people his own size. Others might not be so nice.

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Did I con/try to kill him? That usually is the case....

And I real-life LOLed when I read this response:

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
It happens so often I barely even notice anymore...




A few more of mine:

Lola

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Frankie

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

*grins thoughtfully*
"...or a karaoke bar, if you're up for it."


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
"Rip it and continue talking uninterrupted."
*rolls eyes*
"It's natural. Get over it."


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

*snorts*
"I wouldn't be in one."


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
*scrunches face*
"I have no idea. I don't even know what you're like! At this point, you'd probably be sitting behind a screen and asking me random questions."


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
*rolls eyes and says flatly*
"What I'm wearing right now."

Finally, one that works for Arkin:

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
A romantic, many course meal, in which we would both exchange increasingly sincere compliments, and increasingly exaggerated anecdotes.

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
Go right ahead and fart, there are some really classic old earth jokes on the subject if a tactful retreat is needed.

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?
The whole package has to be pretty fine, since I can get what I want, almost without exception.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
"Tall, with a commanding presence and an air of ironic worldweariness, with a pecuilar blend of the best of classical earth good looks and "that alien charm".
There might be something in there about being a bit full of himself too.

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
Screwing. Most girls really don't penetrate into my subconscious beyond that.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
Probably a dress uniform. Everyone avoids wearing them, both because they're uncomfortable, and because civilians think they are utterly attractive. It can get embarassing.

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
Arrange to get you early shore leave, and time it so we're near somewhere pleasant.

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
There really aren't enough resources on a ship to waste on "showering" someone. Sorry, but no one's worth the waste, or the lecture afterward.

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
I thought we were going to that nice restaraunt for a first date? Or do you differentiate between every sort of first date? "first date together in a park," "first date together in a theatre", "first date together in a holopark". If so, then really, they aren't all worth jotting down and getting goo-eyed over.

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?
I would guess any one ex would be annoyed by any other exes that were not exes at the time the ex in question became an ex. Or, in the case of one recent basket case, because my cooking wasn't too her taste.

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Surely, as the gentlman, it would be your duty to ensure that I enjoy your company?

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

I'm afraid I must inform you that I see very little potential for us.

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

The wallet? Oh. Well, if it must be a body part... the back, I suppose. The carriage of a man is quite important.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Classically beautiful, distinguished and feminine.

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

You would be indulging my every whim.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

A full length ball dress, perfectly and tastefully fitted.

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

I suppose we wouldn't talk about your work given that that had you stressed to begin with, but that depends on whether it was anything I could help you with. Or we could simply have the servants bring us a meal and relax.

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Isn't that your job?

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Cry. Why would that little insignificant brat do that? How could he? I expect you to see that he is fittingly punished.

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Simply because he is bitter from losing me and jealous that he could never measure up to a man like you.

Dylan

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

A picnic by a scenic place of some sort - I love that spot by the lake.

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

Oh... um... excuse myself and go to the bathroom, I guess?

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

His arms - I love the way they wrap around me warmly, and hold me.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Cute and pretty.... I guess?

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

You'd be opening up to me, and truly letting me in.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

A little black dress?

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

I'd let you talk to me, if you want, and if you don't I'd just hold you and let you relax with me until you want to talk.

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

My unconditional love.

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Ask him why he did that. I mean, six year olds act out for a lot of repressed reasons. He's probably not trying to be a jerk for the sake of it.

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

...I'm not sure, but I'm going to find out. God, why couldn't he just talk to be about it when I asked him?

Hey, I loved all your posts guys so I figured I had to participate. I hope this makes sense, I wrote it quickly :D

Deb:
Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
It's hard to say without knowing what you're into so I'll probably write 3 very different dates on a paper, and make you randomly pick one. Since the goal is that we both have a good time, if you really don't like the one you picked I'll let you pick another one. *she smiles playfully * But it might get you a dare.
Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
*seems confused about what to answer* Isn't that what toilets are for?
Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?
Being anatomically correct is a prerequisite but otherwise that is entirely dependent of the person. Although finding someone not only cute but also attractive is usually more due to an ensemble of more subtle things like his voice or his body language, the way he carry himself.
Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
Romance novel? Oh you mean, these so-called books filled with silly stereotypes, right? I guess i'll be the female hero's bff, described as a typical girl next door.
Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
Can't I say what I'd like to dream of instead? My dreams are weird...
Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
I would let my usual pair of jeans in the closet for once and go for something a little bit more revealing, like some cute little dress. The usual stuff.
Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
Depends on your level of energy left. If you're really tired I'll let you crash on the couch then I'll join you with beers, an ear to listen to your venting if you need to and a thorough massage. But if you're not tired there's nothing better than going out to get your mind out of any issue you might have had.
Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Uhm... skepticism if you keep asking me this kind of questions?
Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
I'll scold my little brother and would tell him that kicking people is not a good way to get their attention.
Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?
He could be angry at me because... uh... *try hard to find something* I'm supposed to never get over him?

Ethan:
Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?
We'll take my *my mother's* jet and I'll take you to some dreamy destination. What about Hawaii? I'm tired of the winter. We could kite-surf, or simply chill out on the beach, taste the local food, and so much more.
Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?
What do you think i'll do? It's bad to hold these things. Good thing it usually comes out silent.
Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?
That's a stupid question. You dig the whole ensemble or you don't.
Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?
Tall, handsome, with an imposing figure and a winning smile. *thinks* I'll be also probably turned into a secretly romantic guy. Girls digs the tough guys who turns out to be sensitive story. Laughable if you ask me.
Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?
Partying with some … girlfriends of mine
Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?
If you want to see me in my sexiest outfit, go find me right after a match.
Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?
I'll let you do whatever you need while I'll go out with my boys and I'll come back when you'll be in a better mood.
Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?
Whatever make you uncover.
Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?
I'll offer him twice the price he'd been paid to do it to make him spill the hoaxer behind this identity.
Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?
She might have heard that she was part of a bet. *adds with the most earnest smile* But who would give credit to silly rumors, right?

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

How much time would I get? There's so much fun stuff to do. *tries to think of where to start* We'd probably start off by getting something to eat, somewhere casual, and see who could get the biggest reaction from people by saying the most random thing. Ever tried it? *grins* It's hilarious to see the look on people's faces when you go something like "Wait... I think there's a tooth in my pizza", or "So, what did you set the timer on? We should probably get out of here before it blows". Then there's go-carting, sky diving, balloon rides... Oh, I know, I'd probably take you to some amusement park. It's got everything; fun, thrills, romance, sometimes even live music. And even if it doesn't, we'd probably end up going to a concert too. There's nothing like raw music to get the pulse going.


Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

Fancy restaurants aren't my scene. We'd most likely be eating in a place where the music is too loud for you to hear anything, so I'd just go for it.


Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

All of them! Seriously. The female anatomy is so hot, plain and simple.


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Irresistable! *laughs*


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

*without missing a beat* Having sex.

*looks around*

What, you want me to lie? C'mon! My dream, my rules.


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

Handcuffs and a smile.


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

I'd cook you dinner and probably try my hand at giving you a massage. And I'd try to make you laugh.


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, baby.


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Tie him to the monkeybars and leave him there to ponder the value of picking your targets.


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Oh boy, where do I start...

Natalie:

Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Well, if you really can take me anywhere and afford anything, then you just scored major points. Fun first date... let's have a late lunch/dinner in Rome, and then see what the city has for us.

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

Oh, please. Anyone with half a brain would go somewhere private.

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

*naughty grin* Depends on which you use best.

Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Romance - hopefully - isn't about looks, so I'd rather have the author describe my personality.

Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

You'd be telling me how amazing I am.

Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

Take me to Rio, and I'll show you.

Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

Skinny dipping in the pool? Or let's have a relaxing bath together....

Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Our success.

Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Threaten the parents with social services, or if I'm particularly pissed off, break one of his toys.

Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Yeah, my ex really isn't in any position to yell right now.
*awkward silence*
But if he is, I'd be the first to congratulate him.

I think it's about time for a new prompt.

Prompt 12: IC Sandbox: Dialogue Prompts

Choose one of the following lines of dialogue and incorporate it into your IC free-writing post. You can choose how it's being said, who is saying it, and the context. Whatever you write about can happen in the past, present, future, alternate reality, etc... just keep it relatively in-character.


Here are the quotes:

"Well, if you could accuse anybody of being downright evil, it would be him."

"I just had the weirdest dream about you."

"I'm never doing that again."

"He was pretty religious once."

"Well, he said he was pretty drunk at the time."

"Gee, let me guess. You're not authorized to be in here, are you?"

"There are several possible answers to that question."

"Why do you have ten cans of easy cheese in your cart?"

"Funny, I always thought of myself as a ladies man."

"You won't believe what I just got in the mail."

"If I kiss you, will you turn back into a frog and croak?"

"I've got a bad feeling about it this time."

"I hate you for interfering."

"I think you broke it."

"Why did you pretend not to see me?"

"I'm not sure, but I think that suit is wearing you, and not the other way around."

"Ordinarily, I'd never agree to this sort of thing, but you've got an honest face."

"It's not worth getting pushed down a flight of stairs for. I'm pretty sure of that much, anyway."

"Ten bucks says you can't go a week."

"I'm here to answer the ad in the paper."

Loren was grinning like an idiot. Fifteen years of hard work, pretty much since he'd graduated from college, all had led to this moment. He was not a starving actor. He was not a starving playwright. Heck, he hadn't missed a meal in months, and he had royalties checks coming in every week.

He'd wised up a lot in the past twenty or so years, enough to have some inkling when people were having fun at his expense, and when he should play along, and when he should get the heck out if he wanted to have anything to do with a theatre. Or director. Or actors.

But now? His show, his Tale of the Sub-Suburbanites was opening for its second run, not Off-Off Broadway, not Off-Broadway, but on Broadway. It'd been to London, it had toured the country, and finally, here it was, on Broadway. He grinned to himself as he walked to the back stage entrance and flashed a pass. He was thinking "on Broadway" every tenth word in his head, but no one could blame him, cause his show was opening on Broadway!

He went in, and everything was utter chaos, of course. He'd managed to speak to the theatre manager a month before opening, and gotten permission to watch from a defunct cat walk they hadn't gotten a chance to tear down. He was able to blend in with the teeming mass of half naked everyone, frazzled black clad stage workers, and a flock of directorial types that seemed convinced that the show was going to be horrible. From his time as a Broadway actor, Loren knew that was a good sign.

He knew his way around a theater, and it was a matter of minutes to find his way to the one empty cat-walk in the theatre. They were sort of depressing, empty cat walks. There should have been a bank of lights heating the place to the point where it was nigh uninhabitable, or a legion of motors manipulating a scrim and danglies. But there wasn't and the metal grill was noticeably cool even through his trousers. That would change as the other lights came up, he knew.

He could hear the doors open with the sudden rush of chattering humanity, but he couldn't see them from this vantage point. He could see fairly far into the backstage area, and the entirety of the stage, so just what he wanted to see.

Loren wouldn't deny that he was tense and filled with anticipation. He also wouldn't exaggerate that he was as worried as the actors and directors down there. He was getting close to being famous enough in his own right that a flop wouldn't hurt him, and though he desperately wanted another smash, it wasn't a starving or not starving type of thing like it was for some of those actors.

Finally the curtains opened, and the first act went, almost exactly as he'd envisioned it when he was writing it in the first place, and far better than the one he'd directed off-off broadway. It was beautiful, and as the intermission began, he stayed where he was, not wanting to disturb the organized chaos that he could glimpse from his vantage point.

He grinned at the sight of all of the people helping each other, with set changes, with costume changes, and he was momentarily filled with nostalgia as he watched the behind the scenes chaos. That was what he had grown fond of, not being another forgettable face behind a memorable character, but the sheer camraderie and organization that was the back stage.

His nostalgic musing was violently disturbed when he heard a harsh voice say, ""Gee, let me guess. You're not authorized to be in here, are you?" He jumped, and landed back on the catwalk with his spare change clanging in his pocket, though mercifully none fell out and pinged the stage.

"I am actually," he said, softly, but not whispering. Whispers carried.

The person who'd bothered him was the guy who played the protagonist, the young protagonist. He didn't have anything to do until the curtain call, and had probably gotten getting from this excellent vantage back down in time for curtain call down to a science. "If I'm in your spot, there's plenty of room," Loren said, scooting over.

The actor, whose name Loren had unfortunately forgotten already, looked suspicious, but he sat down. "Who are you? I haven't seen you around," he said, and Loren smiled ruefully. He remembered in high school how he'd been the utter center of attention at every show, and in his third Broadway play when his star as an actor had peaked.

"Loren Dasen," he said, extending a hand. He doubted the actor had heard of him, he was too confident, too sure of himself to be a real theatre nerd, with a mental database of every play and all its details. This kid probably was the sort to just know highlights and plots from every show.

"Timothy Cardew" he said, as if it were entirely unnescessary.

Loren grinned again. "Cardew, eh? There was a girl in my high school with that name. Any relation? Natalie? She'd be thirty six, thirty seven, now?"

Timothy looked a little alarmed. "That's my mom's name," he said, his voice coming out quickly. "Look, I don't want any trouble, sir." Loren might not have acted in several years, but he still didn't let his expression get as baffled as his head was.

He answered honestly, aware of the nuances that Timothy was probably reading into things, but whatever. "I don't want any trouble either. You're very talented."

His reaction wasn't startling, given that Loren had spoken with the same care and craftsmanship with which he wrote, except this time he was trying to say absolutely nothing to advance a plot. The kid blanched, and Loren felt a twinge of guilt. "Okay, fine, how about we talk about this over lunch, I'll get off your catwalk, sir, and you'll leave my mom out of this?"

Loren shrugged. "There's plenty of room here, and lunch sounds fine. I'll see you at the steak place on 75th and 3rd, my treat, at four tomorrow, should be plenty of time after the matinee."

Timothy left without a word, and Loren wondered idly what he'd just gotten into, or if the kid would even show up. The curtain was coming back up though, and the second act was even better than the first.

((OOC: To be continued
Hope that was okay with Alissa that Natalie has a thirteen year old son? If not, then this takes place in Lorenverse
Also, I love getting comments on these writings (good, bad or ugly, just as long as the latter is very witty)))

((OOC: Robokitty- I was tempted to, but there was no way they would have stayed in touch after high school, let alone after college. Besides, what actually caused Loren's kids is better.))

As the curtain call finished, Loren applauded on the catwalk, silently. He really didn't want to make a racket up there, and though most of the audience knew there was an entire other world in the top of a theatre, he had no need to draw attention to it. He also made the effort of tapping one hand on the other wrist in case the star of the first act happened to look up to see if he was still there. Young Timothy did, and Loren waved at him. He couldn't tell from this distance if he was forcing his expression for the curtain call, and it didn't matter either way. Loren just wanted to get out of the theatre before his flesh molded into the metal grille of the catwalk anymore than it already had.

Right after the show he slipped out the back door without seeing Timothy, the stage manager, or the director, so no one he felt any need to talk to. His other motive for using the backstage entrance was a parking garage down two blocks of deserted alleyways, which let him avoid the one right across the street and its full capacity of excited theatre goers.

His car was very easy to find, a blue mini-van with artwork from a number of his favorite shows, which he'd had commissioned to be painted on the side when he'd gotten his first major sum of money for his work. It had been a foolish investment, unless one considered the ease with which he could find his car in a parking lot.

Even without having to deal with most of the traffic coming out of the theatre it took half an hour to get back to his apartment, a function of the fact that he still had a little bit of the starving actor mindset that prevented large investments. A mindset he hadn't developed when he'd gotten his car done.

But it wasn't a true dump, the super did fix the pipes when they leaked, and there was enough room for him and Melissa.

"Mel?" he called, as he came into the dark apartment. His daughter was ten years old next week, and she and he had a quiet, unspoken agreement, that she didn't ask about her mother, and he made sure that she had every opportunity she could want. It wasn't that he didn't want to talk about her mother, Kristina Ursi, but the entire incident had embarassed him terribly.

"What dad?" she said, her voice sleep fogged as she shuffled out of her room in pajamas and bunny slippers.

"Just making sure you're alright," he said reassuringly. "Did you have dinner?" It was only seven o' clock, but she napped during the day so she could stay up at night and still rouse herself in the morning, since he needed to be out of the apartment way earlier than she did.

"No, you said you'd be home early." She rummaged in the pantry for a moment and tossed him a package of spaghetti. "I think there's still some chicken in the fridge."

He smiled wistfully, wishing she acted a little bit more her age and less like a thirty something housewife. Then again, given how her mother had been, was it really much of a shock? Didn't seriousness skip generations? Kristina's mother, Melissa's grandmother, had apparently been serious to the point of being stifling, but he did wish that Melissa was a bit less... straight laced. Though maybe that was more a function of a single parent household? Or... who knew.

Her mother had been wonderful. He'd been doing the casting for the first run of Tale of the Sub-Suburbanites, and when they auditioned for Jessica's part, he couldn't remember the last time that so many beautiful women had been paying that much attention to his every mannerism. Heck, he hadn't been the person the girls were trying to impress since then, directing being way more work for the same money than playwrighting, once he'd established a reputation.

Those auditions had been nice, but Kristina... she had been the most agressive, waiting all day to audition last- the most memorable position, and approaching him afterward to invite him to lunch. He wasn't going to think about what happened after lunch, or the eight months after that, not in front of his daughter, she might think she was an old maid, but he certainly wasn't even going to think about... He busied himself putting the chicken into a pan to brown while he chopped vegetables, remembering how glorious that show had been to prepare, with the most beautiful and wonderful girl imaginable in his bed the entire time.

And then it had all come crashing down when she'd told him she intended to abort, that this was just to keep her part in the show. It had taken every skill he had, as an actor, as a financier, as someone who'd been in love to convince her to bear Melissa, and he'd take care of her. He was still, ten years later, ashamed that he hadn't figured out that she was just with him for his influence with his show, and ashamed that he had let her seduce him that easily.

By then the onions were caramelizing, and the pasta was done, so he ate his dinner without another thought on the subject, and put Melissa back to bed. Time, and a healthy distance from reality, did heal all wounds, even if he occasionally wanted to prod at them.

((Finally got around to writing something for this, yay!

This happens while walking home during third grade))

http://www.kittyklan.com/images/fun/esteban-white.png



Esteban had a bad feeling about this. Up ahead on the sidewalk, he could see Steve White leaning against a tree and chatting with his friend, Wes Thompson. They were both two years older than him—fifth graders. Steve had round blue eyes, a lot of forehead, curly blonde hair, and extra baby fat on his face. Wes was tall and sturdy, with ginger hair and freckles covering every inch of his body.

He’d never actually spoken to either of them before. After all, they didn’t mingle with any of the lower elementary “kiddies.” However, he had seen Steve on the playground before getting real close with a girl named Sara-Lynn Peterson. The same Sara-Lynn Peterson who had just started dating his older brother.

Esteban gripped the straps on his backpack at his shoulders, took a deep breath, and kept walking onward. He had been in a few fights before, but it had mostly been with other third graders. These guys were older, and they looked tough, and there were two of them. That was all more than enough to get him a little on guard.

As he passed the older boys, his eyes darted around and met Steve’s beady blues. A flash of recognition passed between them, and Esteban instantly broke contact and braced himself.

“You’re Rafael’s little brother, aren’t you?” came Steve’s surly voice.

“Hell no.” little Esteban shot back without breaking his pace. He walked right by them, and as he heard their footsteps approaching him from behind, his body stiffened.

“So you’re a smartass too, huh?”

“Better than being ugly and dumped by some stupid girl.”

“You little sh*thead…” his tone lowered to a threatening growl. Steve’s next step carried the weight of intent, falling louder, faster than before. Esteban sped to a brisk walk, and when Steve more than matched his pace, he broke out into an all-out run.

“Hey!” Steve bellowed. “Get back here!”

“Yeah right, dumbass!” Esteban shouted as his Nikes slapped against the concrete, the two older boys falling into sprints behind him. He was running as fast as he could, but his backpack was weighing him down, and the other boys, with their longer legs, were catching up fast.

Suddenly, Esteban was jerked back by his shoulders as Wes grabbed his backpack and pulled it. Esteban cried out and instinctively slipped his arms out of the straps, easily falling out of his backpack.

However, in the few lost seconds, Steve caught up and grabbed him by the shirt. It stretched, and he swung around him like a pendulum before the older boy pulled him in, grappled him, and forced his head in a lock under his armpit. He dug his knuckles into Esteban’s head for a vicious noogie.

“Not so smart now, are ya?” Steve gloated. “Tard.”

“Leggo a’ me, you frickin’ gaywad!” Esteban cried, lashing wildly and trying to escape. It was embarrassing, and his scalp felt like it was burning from the noogie.

Steve’s friend, Wes, still had the backpack in his hands. His freckled fingers found the zipper, opened it, and began rummaging through it. He grabbed a handful of papers, tossing them out in a flurry of white leaves. Then he produced an English textbook, which he threw over his shoulder. It landed on the sidewalk with a loud crack as its spine split open. Finally, with an evil grin on his face, he pulled out a brand new GameBoy Color.

Esteban’s eyes widened and desperation seeped into his little bones. Marty Whedon, one of the richest kids in their grade, dared Esteban to pull off a rather imaginative prank that they had cooked up together one day at lunch. What’ll ya give me for it? Esteban asked. Marty said he could have his GBC, and Esteban was sold. He got caught later and spent a week in detention, but it was worth it. He’d never owned anything that nice before.

“Hey Steve, check this out.” Wes said, waving the GBC.

“I’ve already got one,” Steve laughed.

“Put that down!” Esteban wailed.

“Ok.”

A smug look crossed Wes’ face, and Esteban’s stomach sank as he realized what was about to happen. “

The GBC in hand, Wes whipped his arm down and released it, driving it into the sidewalk. It cracked against the concrete, bounced once, twice, and clattered on the ground before finally laying there, dead. Spider web cracks covered its plastic casing.

A horrible rage filled Esteban’s gut, and his vision tinted red along the peripheries until it narrowed into blood red tunnel vision. His body trembled, and all he could think about was ripping these guys to shreds.

“I think you broke it,” Steve snickered.

Little Esteban roared, and he flailed against Steve, pushing, pulling, and prying his fingers into his face, his eyes, anything. The violent burst surprised the older boy, and he lost his grasp on Esteban, but as soon as he was free he turned back on Steven again and lunged, his fists pounding wildly.

“Whoah!” Steve chuckled, his eyes widening briefly before he regained his composure and raised his forearms to shield himself from the third grader’s blows. When he saw an opening, he shot out his hand so that he palmed Esteban’s forehead and then locked his arm straight out, using his longer armspan to keep the angry third grader’s punches at bay.

Whiff. Whiff. Whiff. Whiff. Whiff.

The two older boys began snickering again.

Outraged, Esteban grabbed Steve’s wrist with both hands. He yanked it down forcefully and bit into his fingers with all his might. He felt Steve’s fingertips spasm in his mouth, and he tasted blood.

“Ahhh!!! Sh*t!! SH*T!!!” Steve howled in pain and tried to tug his hand away, but Esteban kept his teeth clamped tightly.

It took Wes a couple seconds to register what was happening and a couple more to act. He punched Esteban in the back as hard as he could. On impact, a shock of pain shot into little Esteban’s back, but it only fed his anger like a whip to the beast. Wes landed two more punches, Esteban wincing and biting harder with each one.

Changing his approach, Wes grabbed the third grader’s jaw, shoving his fingers painfully into his cheeks and trying to pry it open. Esteban resisted stubbornly, but Wes managed to loosen it enough that Steve could yank his fingers out, ripping off flesh and skin in the process. Steve stared stunned at his blood-coated fingers, his shoulders heaving, and his face twisted.

Esteban spun around, his fist arcing wide before it connected with Wes’ jaw. The ginger’s head jerked backwards, and when it came back, his lip was split open and bloodied. The sight of blood, knowing he made him bleed, sent a wave of manic satisfaction through him.

Suddenly, a crippling pain exploded in Esteban’s right side as Steve landed a punch in his kidneys. It was worse than being kicked in the balls. He spun around in time for Steve’s fist to land in his temple in a pop of pain and light. He could feel something wet dripping down the side of his face from his open, bleeding brow, but the little kid would not stop swinging.

A little while later, Esteban remembered being grabbed from behind. He remembered how third and fourth punches hurt less than the first ones, and he remembered his loose tooth falling out and spitting it out. He remembered getting a second wind and could’ve sworn he managed to land a few more blows in that fight. Then he remembered being too weak to stand and curling up in a ball on the ground and shielding himself from their last few kicks. He felt something wet falling on his face and realized it wasn’t his own blood but their spit. In retrospect, he was glad they didn’t have to pee.

When they left, tears were running down his face, and his body was in excruciating pain. He felt ashamed for his own weakness—for being beaten and for crying. He had let those bastards see him cry and let them know they could hurt him, and boys weren’t supposed to cry. It was humiliating. He wiped the tears and blood from his face, and wiped his dirtied palm on his pants, and crawled to his broken things and gathered them up into his bag. And slowly, very slowly, he stood again, slung his backpack over his shoulders, and trudged home as the shadows grew longer.

When he finally came home, he slid his backpack off his shoulders at the door. It dropped to the floor like dead weight. His shoulders slumped, he checked the clock. Five thirteen. Marissa was still at practice and mom was at work and Rafael was probably with that stupid chick Sara whatshername.

He went to the bathroom to clean up. Carefully, he washed the blood and dirt away from his face, examined his double black eyes, his split brow and lip, the ugly bruises covering his body, and put ointment and band-aids on his open wounds. He touched his ribs, and cried out when they smarted painfully. He’d have to ask mom to see if they were broken.

When he came out, he went to the kitchen. The kitchen table had a note on it:

Dinner is in the fridge. They’re tamales from Aurelia’s. Besos, Mom.

Esteban filled a plate with a couple cold tamales and then eased his aching body on the couch. He switched on the television. He flipped through the channels, finally stopping on ESPN. They were showing a boxing match. With his fingers, he opened up the tamales’ sticky husks and ate with his hands, watching the match intently. The white guy was getting killed.

Less than five minutes later, he heard the door open, and Rafael strode in and headed for the kitchen. Esteban heard him fixing himself his own dinner plate, the ding of the microwave, and his footsteps as he came towards the living room. Esteban did not take his eyes off the TV. He watched the fighting match as if in a trance.

Those bastards were going to pay.

As Rafael rounded the corner for the couch, he finally saw the bruises over his brother’s face. His eyes widened, and his brows arched with brotherly concern.

“Whoah, what happened to you?”

“You owe me a fucking GBC.”

Loren put Melissa to bed and spent a few hours tinkering with his latest work, a theatrical special effects drama, carefully tailored to be a marvel with a high budget, and a comedy with a low budget.

His sleep was completely peaceful, and he was out before sunset, going to see the producer of the second run of Sub-subarbanites at his Manhattan office. The traffic was horrific, even at five in the morning, and Loren spent his commute the same way every time, hoping that no one would ding the paint job that had cost him almost a year's income to insure. He'd been a really stupid kid right of college, getting the car done up like that.

Parking wasn't bad at all, not that he'd expected there to be many people living in apartments with rents he wouldn't begin to contemplate. And the garage would be secure for his precious van, since his appointment was called when he rolled into the garage, and when he left the garage, and when he entered the building. He thought it might be overkill, but he was willing to deal with it.

The meeting went well, the producer handed him a royalty check entirely out of the goodness of his heart, and asked about other shows he had in the works. Loren didn't even mention his pet project with the special effects, he would produce that himself, but he did talk about another emotional comedy, this one centered around a Twelfth Night type of plot.

It took quite a while to work out the details of the rest of his royalties, and Loren did quite appreciate that the two of them were working it out, like civilized gentleman, rather than having their agents do it. He made out well, and the producer probably (accurately) thought that he'd acquired first looks at one of the best new playwrights works. A win win situation, which put Loren in quite a good mood as he said his goodbyes and left the building, once more having to deal with security three times.

As he passed the intersection leading to third avenue, he remembered that he had a lunch date with the Timothy kid. He checked the time and after a moment's indecision made the next right to go parallel to third til he got to 75th. By the time he got there, it was ten after four, and, with what Loren knew about theatre types, he wasn't worried about being late.

Much to his surprise, Timothy was already there, looking out of place in the steak house in a suit. A cheap suit, but a suit nonetheless. Loren was wearing his usual business attire of a button down shirt in a nice color- magenta today- and traditional black slacks, but the fact that Tim had been there long enough to get a soda from the inattentive wait staff here, and not taken off his jacket... interesting.

Loren sat down opposite the young actor in the booth he'd chosen, and waited for him to make the first move. He kept his expression open, slightly interested, and pretty worthless as far as visual cues went. Timothy looked absolutely gaurded.

They sat at such a stand still, with Loren perfectly willing to think about nothing until Timothy broke the silence, or the waiter showed up.

Finally, after almost ten minutes of nothing, Timothy said, "I've done everything that was asked of me. What do you want?"

Loren was pretty sure he hadn't ever seen Timothy, and he knew he hadn't seen the boy's mom since high school graduation. He idly wished for a snifter to swirl an amber liquid around in- probably cola, he didn't drink during the day- but he managed to convey the same effect of profoundly indifferent interest with his posture. "Remind me what's been asked of you already." Very Godfather-esque.

The kid blanched, and Loren felt a vicious twinge of guilt. He doubted Melissa would ever get herself into trouble like Timothy apparently was, but if she did, he would hate whoever was going to put them through this kind of torment purely for their own curiosity.

Timothy started talking, describing how he was taking parcels to people in the theatre, taking money back to someone else, who had made sure that Timothy got the part, got good references, all of that stuff. In short, he was doing to someone with bad intentions what Kristina had done to him.

Timothy wound down what was starting to sound like a combination rant and vent when the waiter finally showed up. Loren ordered good steaks for both of them.

Thy sat in an awkward silence for several more minutes, and Loren finally offered, "You don't have to work for them if you don't want to."

He sighed. "I owe them." Loren didn't know why, but he was pleased that at some point Timothy had realized on his own that Loren wasn't with the boy's... employers.

Their food arrived, and they ate in silence, Loren musing over the situation. Finally, as he sopped up the last of the savory sauce with a roll, he came to a decision. He pulled out one of his business cards, that had his home number and the title of Theatrical Jack of Most Trades, and handed it to Timothy. "Find out if they'll take a bribe to leave you alone kid. You have enough reputation now to be able to get work on your own merits if you need it. And tell your mom I say hello."

He put a hundred dollars on the table which about accounted for the meal and a nice tip, and left without another word, leaving Timothy holding the card, running his finger along it thoughtfully.

((OOC: One more post should wrap this one up
As always, comments and critiques are appreciated
Robokitty- awww, little Esteban is cute. This sort of explains a bit about him, doesn't it?))

furry - thanks XD For a while, I've been imagining Esteban getting bullied and learning how to fight because of his older brother's antics. It was fun to finally write this.

I like seeing your characterization of Loren evolve in these different posts; each one is showing a slightly different side of his matured personality. Looking forward to the next. :)

This thread needs to be revived, so figured I'd post something for an old prompt, since it just fell into my lap when listening to my music collection. :D

PROMPT 06: 'Currently Listening to...' - Matt;

Actually, it's not so much that he'd jam to it, but right now, he could really, really relate to it. It's so spot on, it's almost creepy.


Stabbing Westward - "Shame" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgH3k13fzMM) (click to listen)

I only see myself reflected in your eyes
So all that I believe I am essentially are lies
And everything I've hoped to be or ever thought I was
Died with your belief in me, so who the hell am I?

I don't know if I am free without you
What is left of me without you?
I don't know what's real without you
How can I exist without you?

I'm wandering 'round confused, wondering why I try
The more that you deny my pain, the more it intensifies
I pray for someone to ache for me the way I ache for you
If you ignore that I'm alive I've nothing to cling to

I don't know if I am free without you
What is left of me without you?
I don't know what's real without you
How can I exist without you?

I stare into this mirror, so tired of this life
If only you would speak to me or cared if I'm alive
Once I swore I would die for you, but I never meant like this
I never meant like this
No, I never meant like this

I don't know if I am free without you
What is left of me without you?
I don't know what's real without you
How can I exist without you?
How can I exist without you?
How can I exist without you?

Hahaha! I love this idea and all of the posts! This is hilarious, and I'll come back and read the stories when I have time. Sorry im so behind, but here are some of the answers for Lauren Laughlen!

for the Dating Persona!
The Wild Rose
Colorful, but unpicked. You are The Wild Rose.

Prone to bouts of cynicism, sarcasm, and thorns, you excite a certain kind of man. Hoping to gather you up, he flirts and winks and asks you out, ultimately professing his love. Then you make him bleed. Why? Because you’re the rare, independent, self-sufficient kind of woman who does want love, but not from a weakling.

You don’t seem to take yourself too seriously, and that’s refreshing. You aren’t uptight; you don’t over-plan. Romance-wise, sex isn’t a top priority—a true relationship would be preferable. For your age, you haven’t had a lot of bonafide love experience, though, and this kind of gets to core of the issue. You’re very selective.

The problem is them, not you, right? You have lofty standards that few measure up to. You’re out there all right, but not to be picked up by just anyone.

Consider: The Vapor Trail (Matt, was labeled by Atropa, hahaha cant say i dont see this ever happening, but i will be a Highly Unlikely situation! :P ) Aviod: The Batchelor (no one was labeled this!)




AND THE Dating Game Questions:

The Questions:
Q1. Imagine you can go anywhere and do anything at all. What would you plan for us for a fun first date?

Probably rent a private lake, and spend the afternoon playing water sports or simply relaxing on the beach. Then throw a party with some close friends, in the evening!

Q2. We're on our first date at a fancy restaurant, and suddenly you have to pass gas really badly. What do you do?

Umm, ask to go to the bathroom I suppose? but im usually really quiet so...

Q3. Which body part do you find most attractive in a man/woman?

The Face, and Hands i suppose, because they show emotions.


Q4. If you were a character in a romance novel, how would the author describe your looks?

Most likely the cute girl-next-door, or southern belle look? probably 'better looking on the inside' type, most likely.


Q5. If you were sleeping right now and I was in your dream, what would we be doing together?

We'd probably be on a small, pretty boat in the middle of the ocean, the weather would be beautiful. I'd be laying on a deck chair in a bikini, and you'd be leaning over me in a flow-y shirt and feeding me exotic flavored ice cream. Yum.


Q6. If you wanted to dress up in your sexiest outfit for me, what would you wear?

What ever you want, darling ;)


Q7. I've just had a long day at work/school and am really stressed out. How do you help me relax and pamper me?

Sit down somewhere comfy, and talk, or just sit in relaxing silence. I'd probably make us some comfort food. That always helps me!


Q8. What would you most like to shower me with?

Love, and good wishes. Cuz' i probably can't give you much else!


Q9. We're on our first date together in a park, and a 6 year old comes up and kicks you in the shin. What do you do?

Dramiticaly fall to the ground holding my shin, ready for you to help me up caringly, or conviently fall into you arms.


Q10. We're sitting down together at a bar, when your ex comes up and starts yelling at you. Why would she/he be so angry at you?

Probably because ... well I dont know why but I can use it to my advantage. Depending on what your personality's like, Id tell him off, or sit looking kind of scared and maybe I'd cry for good effect, so that you can have a reason to hold me. Or I'd find a way to get you too beat him up, that way we wont have this problem anymore....

Yey, glad to see you decided to join in the fun! :) And *lol*, yeah, Matt and Lauren probably aren't likely to happen now, although before dance, he would have probably taken an interest in the new girl. ;) Well, as long as she didn't hang out with Rio, that is. :D

Alright, since I just found the perfect character(s) for my beloved Dominic de Vere, I couldn't resist the temptation of posting, and hopefully reviving this thread in the process. :D



Cartoon Character:

Dominic de Vere: Miguel (and a bit of Tulio, too), in 'The Road to El Dorado'

http://www.swotti.com/tmp/swotti/cacheDGHLIHJVYWQGDG8GZWWGZG9YYWRVRW50ZXJ0YWLUBWVUDC1NB3ZPZXM=/imgthe%20road%20to%20el%20dorado2.jpg

The character(s): Miguel and Tulio are con-men, on a constant quest for riches, and who accidently end up on a ship set for El Dorado. Miguel (the blonde in the red shirt) is the carefree, go-with-the-flow optimist of the two, spontaneous and fun-loving, and always seeking adventure. He's reckless, gets easily carried away with his own antics, distracted by women, and doesn't take things too seriously.

Tulio (the darkhaired one) on the other hand, is the more rational and practical of the two, and while that doesn't exactly fit Dominic, he's also a bit of an arrogant know-it-all. Focused on his own interests, and has a hard time admitting when he's wrong.

You would really have to see the whole movie to see the full extent of how similar Miguel and Dominic are, but I'm including a clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVcsw6ZSyYI) of the very beginning of the movie, to offer a glimpse of their personalities. (Skip the first two minutes, it's just the typical Disney/Dreamworks musical intro.)


"Alright! Cuba!" --> Pure Dominic. :D

Well, since robokitty seems to have left the RP forum altogether, I figured I'd at least try to bring new life to this thread, and so I'm introducing a new prompt. :)


Prompt 13: Ten Years From Now

Imagine we're ten years into the future from where you are currently at in the various roleplays? What has become of your character(s)? Have they achieved their goals, are they still working towards them, or did fate simply have another plan for them? Are they working, married, do they have kids? What have they done for the past ten years, and what are their plans for the future? How do you see life turning out for them?

Okay, so, seems I'll have to keep playing by myself, but oh well. :D


Prompt 13: Ten Years From Now - Dominic de Vere

I imagine that Dominic in the future will have gotten involved in great a many various projects. Musical side-projects, such as guest writer and musician on other bands'/artists' albums, touring with some as a temporary replacement if they need one, and possibly also done a bit of solo stuff. I think he would have really liked to do some side-project with Lavinia.

Further down the line, I imagine that he'd probably leave Deaus Ex Machina to front his own band, maybe. Or at least form a new band where even if he's "just" the guitarist, he's still one of the front figures. Dominic never was comfortable with not being in the limelight. :D

I also imagine him continuing to make a couple of guest appearances in various TV shows, maybe even do a smaller part in a movie or two, and perhaps he'd also do some voice acting for a Disney/Dreamworks type of animated movie.

In the more private sphere, he will have fathered a pair of twins - one boy and one girl - with Lara, whom he's also married. They've possibly had a third child as well. As a father, Dominic has had a tendency to spoil his kids, and he's a very indulgent parent, in that he's still a bit childish himself, and loves to play with his kids. And despite having a bust work schedule, he spends as much time as he can with his little family. I can imagine him having brought Lara and the kids with him on tour for short periods, and would probably take the opportunity now and then to show them all off to the crowd. If Lara would let him. :p As he's gotten older, I figure he's also produced one or two new and upcoming bands, that he's heard of and thought to have been talented enough to make it.
