I don't even know what to say anymore. Every time I think things are calming down, something else happens. I finally get Disney sorted and my schedule at Amway gets messed up. I get my schedules fixed and my financial aid for the summer gets screwed up so I have to go back and forth from UCF to fix it. It's been a bit of hellish summer. And whenever I make plans to sit down and figure RP shit out, I get called out to do something or something else happens.
Enough excuses. Time to get back to the hobby I love and have been missing like crazy. I'm really sorry for dropping the ball in May and June but I hope I can make up for it in July. Just in case though, I think I'm going to try and stick to mostly private threads, especially for Lex and Trip, as they are my two big plot pups right now (amnesia and fear respectively), though I'm also planning EPs for them both as well. They both have plotting posts linked in their sections so take a peak if interested.
And if I've missed anything please let me know. I haven't had the mental energy to pay attention to much of anything in the past few weeks and I want to make it up!
Disney: I work at Disney Friday, Saturday and Sunday, usually at night.
Amway: Right now, there are no events at Amway that aren't on the weekend so I'm not really working there. During the basketball season, this will pick up.
School: Because of the financial aid mess, I dropped my summer class. As of right now, I have no idea about fall.
First Weekend in July: A friend is coming into town for the weekend. Bad timing to finally try and get my RP shit together but I'm going to try and come right back after this time.
|Lex Luthor- capable_of|
Lex is going to be my amnesia plot pup for July. He's going to go back to the car crash in the first episode of Smallville, so the island is going to get young, playboy, very morally gray and bitter Lex Luthor. Check out the plotting post for details. He's probably going to be out of it for the whole month, as a warning.
Other plot still on the books are possibly having him take running for council seriously and kids. I really would love to find someone who surrogate a red-headed daughter for Lex. Alternately, someone app the daughter from We Bought A Zoo. Ever since I saw that movie, I'm convinced she'd be the perfect daughter for two numbskulls like Lex and Toly.
Amnesia Plot: Planning Post
Timeloop: I think I might do a solo Timeloop for Lex one day. There are so many good ones but they are things what would really only involve him. Ideas are welcome!
Homeplot: Can we do a homeplot while they are amnesia-ed? That could be fun....
Item: I knew I wanted his next item to be the crushed Porsche and I'm thinking while I'm writing this that I could add this into amnesia plot...
EPs: The second week in July, playboy Lex will be out and about. Possibly a joint EP with another pup, likely Gabby or Jonas.
|Cassie Sandsmark- thethirdwonder|
Cassie has probably been out and about in my absence. She moved in with Sam and is taking care of Hemera. Hemera is going to be the big plot for the summer, aka teaching a baby pegasus how to fly. I think I might do the flying lesson EP I had planned as a public EP as a private one, just because I feel like I would give it more attention that way. This will be silly fun, as she is going to fail horribly until Hiccup and Toothless step in to help.
Hemera is the big plot right now, as is her deepening relationship with Sam. She's never felt for anyone, not even Kon, what she feels for Sam and it scares her a little. Those are really my only two big plots for her right not and ongoing.
Timeloop: Not likely.
Homeplot: Not likely.
Item: I really can't thinking of anything meaningful that she would recognize.
EPs: Private one with Hemera likely, but it may become a public one at the end of July if things are going well.
Oh Gabrielle. She's going steady as always. Argo was a nice development for her, giving her something from home to take care of and that gives her good memories of traveling with Xena.
As far as future plans, nothing comes to mind at the moment. She acted in Spring Awakening and she's taking classes again. Eventually, I think I'd like her to teach or even give performances in her storytelling. It's really a treat that I think island residents would love. In all honestly, when I think of maybe cutting down on pups, she's the first I think of, but I just don't feel like I'm there with her yet. Like there is more I can do before I let her go.
Timeloop: If I was motivated, I could think of many timeloops for her, mainly around Hope. Depending on how other plots shake out, I might give one serious thought.
Homeplot: Anyone interested? I think I'd be more interested in a time loop for Gabrielle if people want to come meet Xena and Joxer.
Item: She just got Argo so I think she's actually caught up.
EPs: None planned for the immediate future.
|Jonas Quinn- thinkimstrange|
Poor Jonas. Whenever my RL goes to shit, he's the first to suffer. I really felt like I was getting him to a good place with people and then I stopped being able to tag. I'd like to get him back to that place, as I feel, like Gabrielle, that he has more to do on the island, especially when it comes to the day to day in New Atlantis. That and I just love playing him so much.
I would LOVE to play with him and a romantic relationship, I just honestly have no idea what kind of person I'd be looking for to satisfy this.
With discovering more about the second island, I do want to get him involved in that. I think it would be a good use of his talents.
Timeloop: With Daniel on the island, going back to Kelowna right after he met SG-1 might help him deal a bit better. Also, Nirrti and her machine.
Homeplot: Likely Not
Item: I keep toying with the idea of giving him Nirrti's machine (have him suddenly stuck in the spinning lights) but I'm not sure it's something that should be on the island, given what it does to people's DNA.
EPs: None currently but he might be the one who goes joint with Lex.
|Trip Tucker- keepurshirtonlt|
I have finally decided to make Trip my fear plot pup. The Xindi arc of Season Three was just too good to ignore. I've linked the plotting post so if you are interested, please take a look. That's going to be my main concentration with him for a while.
But while still in July and August, when it's not too bad, I'd love for him to meet some new people. He's had his first island lose in Lily and he needs more people to drink and flirt with. Catch him while he's still a jovial southerner!
Fearplot: Planning Post
Timeloop: I think for right now, any timeloop will have to wait until after fearplot.
Homeplot: I would love to do one during Season Three before Halloween, while they are hunting for the Xindi. This is Star Trek at it's grittiest.
Item: He's going to come up due here soon so I'm already starting to think of things. His harmonica is a big one, but I might save that for NDPD and instead give him something of his sister's, to add to fearplot.
EPs: Monday/Tuesday, he is going to get a post on the beach, a little stunned after possibly seeing the aquatic!Xindi in the ocean while diving.
|Jim Longworth- hates_flordia||Aang- unbendable_air|
My goal is to app Jim by the end of the year. My love for this pup just grows with each new episode of The Glades. As much as Trip is a Floridan like my dad, Jim has more of an attitude like mine, being from up north but loving Florida for the weird fucking place it is. I even have an entry point that involves UFOs. I feel like I could joint EP Trip and Jim forever.
Really, my goal is to app him by October. My reqs are screwed so I have to make reqs in July and August to even attempt this. I know September is going to be a busy month for me so I think waiting to app him in October will be the smart choice.
I think I've decided that six is my limit, and that was just with school. Now with two jobs AND school, that might change aka be less.
But if I ever feel like I can handle seven again, Aang is the short list after Jim. With Korra on the island, I think it would be a really fun to play out their interactions. I was just thinking that they would no doubt settle into a Big Sister/Little Bother relationship, complete with annoying the crap out of each other. Which is just hilarious when you think of how much Aang's noble legacy has no doubt shaped Korra.
