I haven't posted to this journal in forever, and I'm not even sure anyone looks at this anymore, but as I play more characters now than I did when I originally did this meme about a year ago, I thought it would be interesting and things.

SO:

1. Who are you?
2. Yay! How long have we been RPing together?
3. What was your first impression about our RPs? (i.e., were you nervous, intimidated, disappointed, impressed, amused, annoyed?)
4. First characters we played together?
5. Most amusing scene from one of our RPs?
6. Most depressing?
7. Sappiest/most romantic?
8. Cutest couple from our RPs?
9. Cutest friends?
10. What's your favourite character that I play? Why?
11. Least favourite? Why?
12. Something you'd like to RP/see happen in an RP with me at some point (no matter how random!)?
13. Name a song that reminds you of one of our couples/one of my characters and why you chose it.
14. Anything in particular that makes my style of RPing stand out from others'?
15. Anything I could improve on?
16. Character of mine you'd like to see more of?

And a handy (hahaha, I'm horrible, sigh) list of characters I play:

for ambitious_woman : is it wicked not to care  

for the song drabble meme


Is it wicked not to care when they say that you're mistaken
Thinking hopes and lots of dreams that aren't there?
Is it wicked not to care when you've wasted many hours
Talking endlessly to anyone that's there?
I know the truth awaits me
But still I hesitate because of fear

Skipping tickets making rhymes
Is that all that you believe in?
Wearing rags to make you pretty by design
Rusting armour for effect
It's not fun to watch the rust grow
For it will all be over when you're dead


She's so meticulous in everything she does, even when she's attempting to be casual. Especially when she's attempting to be casual. There is so much care put into being carefree that it almost defeats the purpose. He tries not to notice. He fails. He can't help but admire her a bit for her airs and composure. He can't help but resent her for making him all too aware of the space he occupies and the blank spaces in between. Each breath and word and movement is measured and considered before presented to her audience. There is no such thing as nothingness in her world. Every moment of stillness and silence is intentional and contains one hundred million metaphrases that prove completely untranslatable in mere mortal language.

Her status is her religion and her sin is her rigidness.

I've been a bit MIA lately, and I'm always late to memes, but whatever

If you read this, even if we don't speak often, please leave a comment to this post with a memory you have of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad. Once you've left a comment, post this little paragraph on your journal and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you. Any 'verse, point in canon or random encounter between you and me is welcome.

I've been meaning to complete a proper CR meme for ages and haven't gotten around to finishing it at all, so maybe doing this might help me get that posted and give it an update from my earlier draft. And if not, at least it's a fun exercise and stuff.

Comment here with one of your character's names for a big block of text about how mine feels about yours. Return the favor!

Edit: since people missed the memo on one also, I was meaning to change this too myself let's pretend that reads comment here with as many of your characters as you wish to toss in.

oncoming_storms : 71.3 - Imprisoned In A Small Cell  
"You can't go in there."

"What?"

"You're not allowed in there, sir."

"Yeah, well you and what arm - oh."

"Me and this army, sir."

He looked around at the dozen or so men. He sniffed, then bounced a little on his toes.

"Yeah, well, that's quite an army mate, but -"

oncoming_storms 96.2: Quote - ....the future is not what it used to be.  
The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.
- Paul Valery



He used to know the future. Well, know it more or less. At times the future decided it wanted to be in flux and things could get quite confusing. Nevertheless, he was fairly decent at his history, he knew the past and the future. The details might change here or there, but Hitler always lost the war, unless of course you changed something in the past that shouldn’t be changed. That always means the Germans ends up winning. Or perhaps not, maybe that is just something he read online. Either way, his knowledge of the future at this point isn’t even as useful as an internet anecdote that may or may not exist.

2012. He knows the year. There once was a Dalek in a museum underground, but time had gone into flux and the thing probably ended up there more or less, despite the flux. He wasn’t sure. There should be Olympics happening in London, except the Olympic games no longer exist in this universe. These are things he more or less has come to terms with. A future that isn’t that he knows it should be, but he was prepared for that.

Other things though, other things still catch him off guard.

oncoming_storms 90.2 Amnesia ~ cowritten with rude_not_ginger  
x

I had a dream which was not all a dream.

He wasn't sure what that meant, but as he woke from a dream the phrase rolled around in his mind. He vaguely thought that someone that wasn't him thought that thought, or spoke those words. He couldn't quite remember who that would be, maybe a book or a film or a friend. It really didn't matter though, did it? Just a phrase that someone said once, he didn't need to know anything more than that.

A dream stuck out though, more than anything he really could remember. It was just a dream though, and nothing really worth dwelling on either. Dreams come and dissipate because that's the way they work. It was something he knew, though he couldn't tell you why he knew it. He also knew that he should get up and find the kitchen, and he thought he liked coffee, black with extra sugar. He couldn't say if he liked that since forever, but it felt like he did.

There was another feeling as well, a feeling outside of his mind and his body and surrounding him in a way that felt familiar, but couldn't possibly be right. It felt like the walls around him were somehow sad, in a quiet way he couldn't quite figure out. A strange thing though, sadness in the walls. It was strange enough that it could be pushed aside to the corner of his mind where useless notions were sent.

And men forgot their passions in the dread of this their desolation.

He wondered briefly where strange thoughts and words like that might come from, but just as quickly he questioned this, he banished the thoughts and words and strange dreams and despairing walls to the place in his mind where useless things belong. There were more important things to focus on, things like coffee and finding kitchens. So that is what he did, moving himself along and through the motions which felt comfortingly familiar.

Just a general note, I'll be away from tomorrow until sometime Sunday afternoon/night/whatever, so if anyone is looking for me or stuff, I am not here. But in the meantime, I'll post this and maybe I will have music and things waiting when I come back.

Warning: By posting this up you are subjecting yourself to other peoples tastes in music. First rule of Play List is do not get offended by the music people share with you. Your cup of tea could be someone else's leafy water.
Warning: By posting this up you should be willing to seek out the same meme on your friends list and give them some music too!

01. How it works: Place this post up in your journal.
02. Fellow friends list members [and their writers too] are to then in turn comment to your post with music.
03. Said music is shared via an upload that you can download, or a link to lyrics for the connection challenged that reminds them of you.
04. When you comment leave the song title and artist in the subject line so that if someone else thought of the same song they don't have to send it to you again, ;)
05. With enough people and enough variety of songs you should end up with a lovely playlist inspired by those that know you pretty well [or so you hope].
06. Download and enjoy!

for oncoming_storms : 71.2 - personal space  
He glared at the Master, taking a step away.

“You’re hiding something from me.”

He would drop, he would drop any second now. That’s what he would do, he could walk away, run away. Just drop and that would -

Before he could make an exit the Master had a grip on his wrist.

“Let go!”

“Tell me.”

He yanked, trying to pull away, knowing full well that the Master was stronger and would win the battle. He gave the Master a look and then relaxed.

“Fine, I’ll just wait until you get bored.”

“I have all the time in the universe," he said, his tone light. And then just as quickly his tone turned colder and more sinister. "Unlike some people.”

The human Doctor gave him a glare, and then focused his attention on a couple buttons on his shirt, idly playing with them in boredom as he waited for the Master to let go. He wasn’t sure how long they were standing there before he heard a delicate cough.

He looked up startled to see Reinette standing there, one eyebrow arched perfectly. He felt himself straighten up a bit, and could feel his cheeks get a little warmer as Reinette’s gaze fell to his apparent hand holding with the Master and then her gaze met theirs again.

He tried to block out the rest of that conversation.

You Are Totally Like Your Mom
You and your mom are practically clones.
You think alike, and you even seem to read each other's minds.
And while you get along well now, you probably fought when you were a teenager.
You're definitely you're mother's child... and that's just fine with you.

for oncoming_storms : 76.3 If you could go back and change one thing in your life...  
“Go in there and get the retro-mitigator.  I had to have left it somewhere inside the cave.”

“What, no, you get it”

The Doctor gave him a look.  There were signs of some sort of temporal anomaly, and after hours spent they realized it was just some sort of glitch.  He rolled his eyes.  He wasn’t sure when he became the Doctor’s personal gopher, but he didn’t particularly feel like arguing.

“Fine.  Next time something is left behind, you’re getting it though.”

for justprompts : Something Forbidden  
Somehow his and Donna’s laundry schedules always seem to fall one on top of the other. As he puts in his laundry her clothes are finishing in the dryer. It is nothing planned or even thought about that often, it is just the way of things. Neither one of them plan it out that way, and they usually have a nice little chat while Donna is folding her laundry and he is placing his in the dryer. At first it was just instructions on how to do laundry properly without destroying any machinery. It took a few lessons from Donna to get that down. Then it was just idle chit chat, a weekly ritual of sorts.

written because I love Kisha lots and lots and stuff and if handy were real he would hate me and kisha forever and ever and ever. lucky for everyone, handy is only fictional, and slightly fail at times, so his hatred as far as this goes is pretty meaninglessCollapse )

for muses_gonewild : 158. The Doorway (setting)  

“I should gouge your eyes out.”

You’re cocky, you’re always too cocky. Nine times out of ten your words are just threats and mean nothing more. You expect everyone else to be the same. You expect the bad guys to be clearly labeled and wear armour and metal and machinery that hides away any sort of softness or weakness or humanity. You always forget who the villain is, and you thought it was just an empty threat until she lunges at you.
