{ ooc } this is a good idea :D

I've given my characters a healthy dose of Veritaserum and now they have to tell the truth. What does this mean for you? Ask my characters questions about anything and everything and they will truthfully answer it. So, go ahead and ask what you want. He can't beat around the bush with half-truths.

Usually, I say in a very loud voice that I only RP for myself and for fun. Of course, this isn't true. I also RP for the joy of interacting with others and entertaining those who read this journal. And, therefore, here is your place to tell me what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong. Please be constructive.

So, I don't know anyone who doesn't feel like they aren't getting enough feedback. So... let's give some. What do you like about my pup? What do you think could be improved? What things about them do you not understand that you'd like elaborated on?

Comments screened.

1. What gender of character do you play more of, male or female? Why?

I happen to have more female primary characters. I say primary because with my OCs and even the canon characters I pick up, I try to write them as a whole person with friends, family, random whonots in their daily lives. This means I write secondary and tertiary characters as well, much as you would for a novel. These beings do not exist in a void. So for example, I have Pippa here. I also write Mike, Alessandro, Marcello and in some instances I will pick up Rory who is someone else's muse altogether to write a prompt or a scene. In terms of the types of voices I will write, I'd say it's about 50/50. Break it down by primaries and most are female.

2. Is this different or the same as your own gender?

Same, with the same caveat as above.Read more )

The Snuggle Meme. Because everyone can use a snuggle now and again.

If your muse has ever wanted a good snuggle/cuddle/hug with my muse, comment here.

I'll write at least 250 words with the pairing. Every fic is to be considered just that, fanfiction, and not actually RP history unless you request that it is. You're welcome to leave any sort of suggestions for the fics you want, be it genre, a prompt or scenario. Things can be platonic or romantic, just let me know which one you’d prefer.

What pieces of you are in your characters?

The characters I write are not so much pieces of me as they either explore things I myself am interested in (and would like to learn about), have a core issue I can relate to or are simply something I can easily mimic. This holds true for canon and original (non-fandom) characters


[ profile] abbytude --she's sarcastic, hard, would rather go it alone than depend on someone else and has grown up with a parent who was rarely ever actually the parent in the relationship. And then there's the alcoholism. I'm an adult child of an alcoholic, I find occasionally exploring Abby's darker side to be cathartic.

[ profile] half_whole_pw --the mingling of being a person strong in their faith, struggling with the issues of a young, gay conservative in a religious family--even in a religion that is fairly progressive as far as allowing women and gays to be clergy, is not easy. Add in the loss of a sibling (a twin in the character's case)and you can see that under the surface of a cheerful person lurks deeper issues. I relate more to the NPC sister (also canon) that I write alongside Peter. I have dealt with the loss of one older brother and still watch another struggle with what it means to be gay in a conservative family.

[ profile] squirrely_scot --Sue White is purely gonzo. She defies the laws of reason, physics, simple logic...What can you say to a woman that will only answer your questions in the language of a crow? Feck off! Sue is nothing more than comic relief and something I can easily mimic.

[ profile] makerofhats --Charlotte is dying. She's also a romantic and lover of the fanciful. Just an excuse to read more Emily Dickinson on my part and play with language and prose when I feel like pulling this one out.


[ profile] sand_andwater--Pippa. She's a writing experiment and a general mess. The closest thing I have to a Mary Sue. I use her to play with an art form I am fascinated with: Venetian glass blowing. I also get to play with NYC, a place I enjoy being though I don't visit nearly often enough. And music. Anyone that knows me, knows I love music. Pippa is on the outside looking in on the music industry: a fan and a critic.

[ profile] rein_it_in--Laine is my indulgence for horses. I used to ride semi-competitively in Rodeo events. Barrel Racing. Rough and tumble. She also deals heavily with the loss of an older sibling and a less than stellar relationship with her father. She's no-nonsense and doesn't suffer fools.

[ profile] jansenmaceibhir--She's been quiet of late but when I do drag her back out, Jansen is the child of two worlds, two cultures. So am I. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what or who you identify yourself as--if you do at all.

Press the Forgot your login? option next to the Username and Password. Follow the prompts. You will receive a list. Post that list and explain in a few sentences a bit about each of those characters, writing journals, communities, etc, etc. Don’t forget to add if you’re looking for a home for this character or that.

And if you’re so bold and in the Mod community department, or are looking for an RP partner, writing partner, etc, take a chance at commenting that the character looks neat and might fit for this RP or that prompt community. Who knows, right?

For those writing novels without a journal for each, you’re welcome to do a Cast List.

[ profile] abbytude --Abby Lockhart from E.R., she's gone AU after events of season 11's episode Skin. She does incorporate canon events after that point but they are rearranged to fir her AU storyline. Snarky, sarcastic, struggling alcoholic with more issues than she can rightfully manage, she's still determined to be the best ER attending she can be. (Plays in TM, Just_Prompts and so on. Very panfandom oriented and will converse with anyone) Read more... )

A few words about the ArPea Awards:

The mun would like to thank you for all of the nominations, especially for the category of Romance Writer (my mun journal is [ profile] hinkydoodle.)

I am completely amused that Pippa has been nominated as a muse you'd like to slap. Pippa, on the other hand, is horrified. She believes she has been used, abused and tortured enough without suffering further abuse at the hands of more fellow RPers/muses. Larch was quite enough, thank you.

She does thank you for acknowledging that she and Ro are made for each other.

Congrats to everyone else that was nominated.

Comment on this post. I will choose five userpics from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are using them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

I'll keep updating this post with my answers. The first set are from Bobby Barnes:

Muses are going to be quiet for a bit. I am going to be stuck with one arm in a sling for the next 4-6weeks. Typing w/ one hand is not fun or easy (shut up, you know who you are). Love vicodin but also doesn't make typing easy.

If you read my mun lj the boy posted yestrday about what happened. Long story short: Hinky has a jacked up car and a more jacked up collar bone. People who run red lights should be shot.

This has taken way too long to type.

Other muses:


Not bothering to cross post this since most of you have more than one of them friended.
sandandwater: (road and sky)
Request any fic of mine and I will provide you with a commentary/annotations, like a DVD extra.

Since Pippa is MIA for a while and isn't going to be commenting to anyone, here...have meme.

Peter has launched a fan-site for Breaker Street, the rock band led by Rory Stone ([ profile] fey_fire). You know, the one Pippa Kerr ([ profile] sand_andwater) never shuts up about? That one. Completely fictional band, complete with NPC members to back Rory up. Don't bother googling the song titles, the mun made them up.

Here's the meta-fun part:

Rory doesn't know about the site as yet. Peter's not going to tell him because well, of awkward at the moment. However, I have set up the lj comm to serve as a faux website for the band. No new posts will be made, the existing ones will be edited as needed.

If you have NYC based muses that may have seen the band play anywhere (I have club listings eve, I'm handy that way) feel free to let your characters fan-girl or pan the band. Seriously. And you don't have to join the comm to comment. You don't even have to be logged in. I honestly don't care. Chaos in the message board is welcome. (Well not by the muse, but who cares).

I, along with Rory's mun do have a few lulz up our sleeves for the mock-message board and the website will end up being something that drives Peter nuts...Pippa too.

Just a heads up as to what my muses will be referencing from time to time. Feel free to join in or rubberneck.
sandandwater: (booze and fruit)
Name a hand full of people you RP with, read, or have heard of. Say something positive, a reason why you like their characters, or the players. Anything that is constructive, positive, and better than the general: <3!!

Because Pippa interacts with some different people than Abby:

James Potter--Much love for the mun, this mun loves the muse. This muse...has the misguided assumption that she can reform the muse, no matter how he torments her. Lulz, so many of them.

Aryn Wakefiled--They have a lot in common even if they won't discuss it. Aryn's fun in that she humors Pippa's proper ways (and her Ro obsession). Mun is fun to chat with OOC too.

Paul Smecker--One of the very few people Pippa ever lets see her truly snobbish side. He's educated, intelligent and while a bit coarse (hahaha understatement what?) Pippa holds him in high esteem.

Melinda Duvall--One of these days she'll let the writer into her inner sanctum. Mel's a fun one for Pippa to talk to about anything from floppy hats to making glass to some of her better kept secrets.

Rory Stone--How can we not mention the love of her life? Lord knows Pippa mentions him ALL the time. She is his and he is hers and woe for anyone who tries to get between them. Yay for a mun who puts up with my nuttery.
sandandwater: (evasive)
Pippa isn't a thief, but her mun is. [ profile] savagestime has a post like this in their journal and I love the idea. So:

Comments, criticism, and the like, all welcome here. Comments are screened, anonymous is allowed, critique is very welcomed. If you think I am Doing It Wrong: tell me, and please suggest ways to improve. I'm always open to suggestions, particularly of the helpful sort.
