If... anyone still reads this, I am alive!

I am in Oklahoma right now (for anyone who doesn't have me on facebook). And I got to see Ireland and Germany this summer. I may have a chance to return to Ireland this coming summer as well, we'll see...

I miss RP. But I am one semester away from finally graduating university. This coming May, if all goes according to plan, I'll have my BA in Linguistics and I can move back home. Or to Seattle. Or Portland. Or somewhere cold and north.

Anyway, just checking in. Hope everyone's doing well <3

I need to make a list of which characters mine reply to. I always forget some. And sometimes, I forget the really, painfully obvious ones.

Either that, or I need less social characters, but ... I don't see this happening.

"So after work I took a nap this afternoon and dreamed that I had moved to a small town in Texas and that you were Floggin' Holly, the famously undefeated bull-riding champion. And I had to meet you at this bar, so we could put together a band called Doric Ionic Corinthian."

that awkward day where

"are you married?"
"have a boyfriend?"
"working on that one."
"awww, come on!"
"here's your receipt"

is followed by

"hey beautiful, where's the bathrooms?"

is followed by

"i'm going to go home and dream about your name and your face"

is followed by

"are you married?"
"can i have your number?"
"i'm taken"
"MY HEART IS GOING TO BREAK! ohhhhhhhh i can't take this. please, holly."
"oh this sweet name of yours i'm going to come back every day just for a glimpse of you"
"yeah sorry"
"are you sure?"
"yeah sorry"
"so so so so so beautiful"
"yeah i gotta go now unless you needed to find something on the shelf..."

like. what. the fuck. was in the water today.

Dear sexist pig customer,

Don't piss off the girl who has Godric Gryffindor in her head.

It's hard to tell a founder to hush up and that no, he can't chuck a five gallon of paint at some asshole's head.

We need Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws, and Slytherins over at [info]ftshadesmods!! I'd also love to see more more medieval witches and wizards, as well as some characters who AREN'T in their 20s.

Also, I need a poll: what are your opinions for/against OCs in games?

I generally strongly dislike OCs and I feel like I have only seen one or two who I legitimately liked and were able to stand on their own as individuals. I have not seen very many who had strong personalities ESPECIALLY when they're female - and they almost always are - and I tend to be bored with and unimpressed by them.

And I hate, hate, hate being in games that are overrun by OCs because then I feel like I have nothing to do because my character isn't some Princess Bunnyboots Yamahara ~special snowflake~. I feel like OCs can become like a deadly virus if they're left unchecked. But then I worry about being accused of retarding creativity.


But even then there is the fact that I would give someone my first born child if they played Godric's little sister Morrigan. But I have gone against my own wishes because I have been routinely, ROUTINELY unimpressed by OCs.

Especially in a world like HP, there are so many who dont even have first or last names. There's so much room to work with that's still canon. (And I don't count people added in to the films as canon, like the Carrow twins. They're not canon.)

So those are my personal feelings on OCs. What are yours? Do you like them or not, and why? Do you think it's worth opening up or should I keep OCs non-playable?

Your result for Roleplayer Test!...

The Fantasy Hero

Plotful, Action-Oriented, Platonic

You are the classic tabletop roleplayer, the complete opposite of the Shipper. You like long, involved, continuous quests with lots of fighting and adventure, and probably enjoy seeing your character's skills and attributes grow, whether or not actual game mechanics are involved. You're more active than re-active in terms of game events: you're confident as  a player and more than willing to jump in and steer the plot, which makes you a godsend to many a GM/moderator. However, your characters tend to be fairly static in terms of personality and character relationships, and you are the type of roleplayer most likely to succumb to powergaming and rules-lawyering.

Take Roleplayer Test! at HelloQuizzy

This is pretty spot-on. I don't like social games that much as there's not really anything to keep my attention. I'd like to think my characters aren't very static though, but I can see how they have been at times.

I hate admitting this, but I'm a little lonely these days. I've got so many great things going for me, but I can't help but feel like something is still missing. My best friend has basically ditched me and everyone else for her loser boyfriend, so I basically don't have a social life anymore. My brother is in five different bands + working, so I don't hold that against him for a minute, but I feel like I just don't know anybody anymore.

I'm applying to Rutgers for the fall to major in stage production, so I'm hoping I can make some more friends there. Next summer I want to go to Italy via the ACLE program and teach English. My friend I've had my whole life went last summer and loved it and she recommended I go and give it a try. I don't know - I feel like I've just outgrown the CCC group. They honestly annoy the shit out of me for the most part, and most of my other friends I feel are at that stage where they're all having babies and seeing as I have no interest in that... well, what can ya do?

And even in rp, I feel like I don't talk to everyone as much as I did this time last year, and that makes me kinda eh. You guys are pretty much my only friends I talk to every day right now. And it's not that I don't love everyone, but no one lives near me, so it's a little difficult when I'd love to hang out but you're all across the country or something. :p

Maybe I need a cat.
