Since content would be "My hands are cold, I want some lime juice, is it naptime yet, not touching the hundred thousandth round of m/m writing debates with a ten foot pole although I'm reading quite a lot of the discussion, OMG I have almost everything I've ever written transferred over to the Archive of Our Own, Bradley James and Colin Morgan are adorable and so are my cats, thank you and may your god or lack thereof go with you."

Instead, memes.

RP meme stolen from half my friendslist

Where and when did you start RPing? College: tabletop. University gamers' guild. I was one of those chicks who bought a million White Wolf and GURPS sourcebooks and never played from them, and hung around the fringes of meetings waiting mostly in vain for the guys to play anything that looked like it had character development in it.

Do you RP anywhere other than LJ? Not at the moment.

Do you play in any public games? fandomhigh , to no one's surprise.

Do you prefer first-person comment spam or prose logging? Prose. I can only handle 1st person in OOC-but-IC crack threads a la fandomtherapy .

What was the first character you ever played? Not counting OCs in tabletop, Spike from BtVS, in a PBEM (played by e-mail) game with zortified , wolfling , and thebratqueen .

Who's your favourite character to play now and why? Francine Peters. It was Xander for a very very long time, and someday I imagine it might eventually be Emmett Honeycutt, but right now Francie has my focus because she's just starting to figure out who she is and what she can do. Xander's already there, Emmett's still just in the 'finding a voice' stage, and Illyria... is Illyria. I love writing dialogue for her when it works, tear my hair out over fight scenes every time, and fully admit she is a back-burner character who may or may not ever completely gel.

What's the longest you've ever consistently played one character? fandomhigh 's Xander. He's been around since September 2005 and hasn't left technically-active status since then, though he's super-quiet now that he's off in married alumni-land.

What's your biggest RP pet peeve? OOC/IC divide (you are not your character and s/he is not you) and taking shit for things that someone has let build up until their annoyance is explosive, instead of ever telling me there's a problem.

Do you read RP secrets and the RP anon meme? ...What, that thing over there in that other tab? No.

If you've played in public before, do you prefer community based or journal based games? If it's huge, cracky, and there's no friending list,I prefer that it stays community-based because it's hard to track down everything that happens in individual journals. I'm looking at you, handbasket_rpg . Otherwise, I like the combined "open posts in comm, personal/limited/NWS posts in character journal" thing we have going at FH.

Would you rather play with someone who's very very IC but a mediocre writer or someone who isn't always IC (but not terrible) and a great writer? ...Death is not an option? Is cake? If it's not IC, it's not great writing; it's just good grammar.

Do you have a "RP partner"? I have an RP orgy. I have folks I play with more than others, because our characters and writing styles click or we're around at the same time or they consistently crack my shit up, but no one player with whom I'm sold as a packaged unit.

Do you ever stalk any casts, games, or players? Who? Not other games; I don't have the time or the brain. In my own game I stalk characters with close ties to mine, and sometimes couples if it looks like there's some interesting character development going on. But as one of the many people I stole this from said, I tend to stop following them closely when things get stable for them.

In your opinion, which part of an app is the most difficult/annoying? Writing sample, hands down. You know how people wander around academia for years in ABD (All But Dissertation) status? My apps tend to spend weeks/months in ABWS status.

Are you one of those people who has to customise their character's journal layout and userinfo? Ahahaha. Ahem. Yes.

What was your first game? Offline: I think it was either a session of AD&D, or Star Wars RPG. (The sad thing is that I think I can even pin down which game supplement it was: Crisis on Cloud City.) Online: rpgsouledspike . (Which is the logs comm for that PBEM game.)

Are there any canons you avoid tagging characters from? Nope! Though I am a slow, shy, braindead RPer, so I tend to tag into open threads and only respond to people who tag me, just to keep the multitasking down.

Most memorable scene in any thread? Francine and Arthur staking vampire!Katchoo in our vamp AU event last summer. Though it's a toss-up between that and burning Merlin's body, being stalked by Katchoo or the aftermath post where Francine and Arthur finally crack and fall apart all over each other. I cuddle this whole storyline to me like a puppy and re-read it when I need a good cathartic angst-fest.

Do you RP sex? Sure. Anywhere from FTB/clever euphemisms to full-on NC-17, but it depends on the characters and who I'm playing with. (Also on how nervous I am about looking like an idiot if I Do It Wrong.)

Do you play more males or females? Right now it's exactly even. Two guys, two girls. Mind you one of the girls is a pre-historic demonoid creature in the body of a dead woman.

What won't you RP? I have trouble RPing my characters being assholes, even if it would be IC for them in the situation. I'm not sure if there's anything I won't RP if the situation's right, but there are kinks that do nothing for me and stuff (sexual abuse, torture, etc.) that I'd find triggery to actually play out.

Dressing rooms: yes or no? Never been in one.

Ever RPed a pairing? A romantic relationship at all, or bringing in a canon pairing as a unit? 'Yes, repeatedly,' to the first and 'kind of' to the second. Francine and Katchoo were always going to get together eventually, but they were purposely brought in separately and spent a lot of time working up to that, including another relationship entirely for Francine.

Favourite place to play: musebox, open posts, public games, private games? Public games, mixture of open and one-on-one posts.

Talking RP with someone else who plays your character: fun or awkward? I haven't. Ever. In theory though, it would depend on whether reading their version of the character made me want to hide under the bed or not.


Shallow meme of shallow celebrity objectification stolen from rubywisp

1. Bold the names of those public figures you'd definitely sex it up with.
2. Italicize the names of people you might do after a little persuasion.
3. Leave the people who don't do anything for you alone.
4. Put a question mark after the people you've never heard of.
5. Strike the people you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
6. Add three more to the list.
