new plot @ new avalon [09 Jan 2016|02:31am]
Looking back into New Avalon as a GPSL, yay! Writing out my plotlines for each character is a lot harder than I expected it to be if I excluded, like, social lines.

But of my original characters, I'm always going to be proudest of these guys. :x Some of them I've had for almost ten years, others less than a year, but I'm so proud of these guys and the world/culture that's been built around them.

This exercise is really interesting for me — I'm not the best with coming up with plots, and this is definitely a way to force me to come up with reasons why my character exists in a game — what is their purpose, what are their story arcs, what do they specifically bring to the table?

roleplay year in review - i got wordy )

roleplay year in review - new meme! [31 Dec 2015|12:00pm]
Hey, guys! After doing the year in review, it was sticking with me that for my CDJ I really wanted to recap the year in RP terms, so I made a meme! I haven't filled mine out yet, but I wanted to make it available to you:


What games were you in this year?

Did you try anything new this year? New game, new style, new characters?

What character(s) are you most proud of, and why?

What plotline are you most proud of, and why?

What was your favorite character relationship (romantic or otherwise)?

What did you try, but it didn't end up working out?

How do you feel you grew as a writer?

What are some skills you feel you need to work on in 2016?

What characters would you like to try in 2016?

Final RP-related thoughts?

acting note: be your character's champion [09 Dec 2015|01:44pm]
Some meta stuff to kind of remind me of what my goal/angle is when I'm playing a character like Erik.

Quick background for those of you who don't know me and what I do — I work for a talent development/theater education company and part of what I do is acting coaching. One of the programs that I teach at is an intensive recital program where throughout the year the kids get up and perform for each other and receive feedback from teachers, etc.

This Monday we had our Broadway guest artist come in, his name's Martín and he's currently on Broadway in On Your Feet!, and I've worked with him a few times in a teaching capacity because he visits us a lot, but I never really offered feedback side-by-side. This time, we sat next to each other the whole time and gave our feedback as a team which is awesome for the kids but also for me, because he's brilliant and has this wonderful serious, serene energy when he's teaching and his insights are fantastic (I have major impostor syndrome, though, wow).

Anyway, point is, we had a girl doing a monologue from the stepsister's point of view, and I asked her to describe her character, and she said that her character was "evil" and "nasty."

But this is what Martín said in response:

You have to be an advocate for your character.

Even if the audience response is to interpret that character as nasty, as an actor (and by extension, as an RPer) you have to be that character's champion, be the one who believes in them and believes their side of the story. I feel like this is obvious for anyone who acts, writes, or otherwise analyzes and presents a character to the world, but I felt it important for me to write this specific wording to myself.

And I think this can get kind of muddy in the sense of — well, okay, I have to think of my character as a good guy and make excuses for their actions or soften their actions in order to do that, but I think it's more a matter of justifying those actions from the character's point of view (not from anyone else's). On the outside, those actions might be 1000% inexcusable, and the character himself might know that his actions weren't the smartest, but very rarely does a character think of themselves as evil, even if they might insist they're a monster or they're bad.

This can sometimes translate into "My character's not evil and I'm going to prove it" or "That thing my character did, that wasn't so bad, why don't you love them now?" or "Look, if they cry a lot or have a tragic backstory that means what they do isn't awful" from an RP standpoint (in acting the script's usually written for you so being your character's champion is a little more restrained). I think there's a really fine line to walk between being your character's advocate and ignoring characterization and/or making excuses and finding that sweet spot is where you find great villainous/morally gray characters.

What this means for movieverse Magneto? )

memes from [info]ghanima and [info]musas [07 Dec 2015|03:41pm]
Choose 2-5 questions per character, and I'll answer them. (Hell, I will answer them all!)

01) Does your character believe in true love or soul mates? Love at first sight?
02) Are they or have they ever been in love?
03) What are their general feelings about sex?
04) How do they feel about sex without love?
05) What about sex before marriage?
06) What counts as cheating and is cheating forgivable?
07) Have they or would they ever cheat?
08) Are they a virgin?
09) First partner? Most recent?
10) What sort of experience do they have with sex?
11) How comfortable are they with their body?
12) With their partner's body?
13) Who gave them "The Talk"?
14) Post-sex habits? Weird habits?

stealing a meme from ... everyone, but mostly [info]borntorun [26 Nov 2015|12:05am]
Happy Thanksgiving! Stealing a meme, while I should be working on [info]jaha's housing meme.

Pick one of my characters (present or past) and I'll tell you:

1. What initially prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
2. One of his/her best traits.
3. One of his/her worst traits.
4. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character.
5. The story/thread/chapter/post/paragraph/tag/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character.
6. My plans for the character in the near future/what I imagine they're doing now, if a past character

I second [info]ghanima! I rarely update my CDJ but I want to do another voice or video meme. :D

Give me a passage to read or something to put on video and if it's something I can get away with doing at 2am I will do it. ;) (I do sing but I hate singing in my apartment b/c neighbors and being overheard, so I'm unlikely to sing.)

[14 Oct 2015|02:23pm]
