I just wanted to make this stated now. I’m no longer accepting applications into this AU, I’m really sorry. It’s hard to keep up with lore since some Gods don’t even message me about theirs, and the list is growing bigger and bigger, so I’m shutting down applications for joining this AU! I’m really sorry to whoever else wanted to join, I’m just… fried from all of the people asking. 

(( however, I’m planning another AU soon ;u; be on the lookout for t h a t ))

anonymous asked:

Hello again! Do you create characters differently for rp than for narratives or short stories? If so, what're some important things to keep in mind when dreaming up an rp character?

That’s adorable. You’re implying I actually plan characters or have a method. :D {No, seriously, I’m the worst person to ask about “character creation processes” because I have none.} However… 

In all fairness, I’ll say this– I have yet to actually create a character specifically for a novel. (I suck at short stories.) Except for “hey I need a name to fill in a role here,” all of my characters in my fiction are derived from RP characters designed waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day. 

All of my @brandenburgva characters were created as NPCs and I’ve developed them through both RP and personal writing. And their creation? Literally a slightly less graphically-restricted version of my MMO character creation process. 

That goes along the lines of:

  • get makeover kit
  • fiddle with sliders and settings
  • like what I see
  • realize I have no name
  • scan through list of names already used
  • dig up lists of baby names
  • finds name that sounds really cool
  • names character
  • looks at class/race/gender
  • compares to other pre-existing characters
  • says “fuck it” and dives into some form of RP
  • figures out everything else later

No, that’s… literally it. That is how I make characters. It’s how I made my Brandenburg characters, too, albeit I didn’t have a makeover kit/sliders to fiddle with and often had to come up with names off the top of my head. {This is why I have an agoraphobic optimistic Goth bookstore owner named Spider. Such imagination, wow.}

However, if I was going to sit down and try to make a character without having a specific goal/plot in mind or someone else’s character I was angling to play off of, I’d probably do the above. 

And then I’d come up with a “hook.” Want an example? Let’s do examples. It’s slow at work, it’s 1:40 AM for me and we love examples. 

I’ve recently made an engineer named Alexis Linser. Now all I had to go off of initially was a level 80 engineer that I wanted to ID kit into a usable character. My engineers have been female, so I went with tradition. She’s going to be in the Blackclaw Mercenaries, and I’ve already had a female engineer in there (oh, Chessi) so I figured “TRADITION” and made a blonde engineer. 

Now when you make a score of alts, it’s important to avoid playing the same character over and over again under a different name. Chessi was derpy, sweet, incompetent and almost violently optimistic. I knew Chessi’s history so I knew what to avoid repeating for Alexis. 

I’d been considering a Kurzick/Luxon mix because that’s just rife with possible backstory. Lo and behold, her grandmother is a Kurzick necromancer and her grandfather was a Turtle Clan Luxon elementalist. Both grandparents shared their respective cultures with their son and, eventually, their granddaughter. Alexis knows how to dress up like a lady and conduct herself in “proper society,” but she’s a blacksmith by trade, specializing in armorsmithing. 

{Why not fishing/piracy like her father? She gets horribly seasick.}

Her parents died in the “Crisis in Kryta” metaplot (because why not?) and her grandmother is her only living relative. She visits her grandmother very often, lives in Divinity’s Reach and spends a lot of time in Lion’s Arch. Alexis is friendly, open, morally rather grey and doesn’t believe in dictating how people live their lives. She takes people as they come rather than forming expectations about them. 

I made it a point to include hooks in every aspect of her brief backstory. Her grandparents are Kurzick and Luxon–someone with either cultural background could recognize the piece of petrified wood from the Echovald that she wears on a choker chain or the jade turtle piercing in her left ear. Her profession gives someone a reason to approach her–being a blacksmith, she can create household objects or fashion a suit of armor. Her range of preferred locations makes it easy for her to be “in the right place at the right time” in order to meet up for RP. 

When you have an established circle of RP connections, you can play the “Billy Badass” characters that brood, huff, stare morosely at others and don’t say a damn thing. Those people already know they’ll have to be the ones to engage you and that certain approaches just won’t work.

However, if you’re going to make an RP character for public RP, you need to create a proactive, approachable character that’s willing to give others something to react to. Shy characters are fine, but they have to spill a drink, ask a question, be terrified of bugs, do something that’s going to encourage others to interact with them. 

That’s the biggest tip I have for creating an RP character: make the character easy to engage with, whether by having them be a proactive, talkative, outgoing sort or by having them noticeably react when others are present, drinking, talking, etc. As a whole, RPers like to ‘react’ instead of ‘act.’ Be the one that gives them something to react to

you wanna know what my real shit here is tho… it’s just that na//om//i is always just about to have a big thing. she’s always almost there but something gets in the way. she was close to winning her n//x//t competition but didn’t despite winning the most challenges so she was runner up (tho it was a whole voting system thing but u know how often r those true blue in w//w//e?), she was close to challenging a//j for the divas belt ( and possibly winning because she was getting big ) and then the injury to her eye set her back like……… she’s always almost there man i just want her to BE there already like damn

Nervous Wreck

Summary: If there’s one thing Tony knew how to do, it was how to be suave. After meeting you, it dawned on him that maybe he needed a better education in that particular life skill. 

Warnings: Conversational meme usage, also, swearing and a hella weak ending

Tony Stark was a playboy. As smooth as the gold alloy his suit was made of and as popular as an alpha of the pack. He was not someone who got nervous around a girl, especially not to the point where he’d trip or blank out or even stutter - that was not Tony Stark.

And yet, it’s the only Tony Stark you know. Tony blames it on bad luck, especially when Bruce gives him a questioning look after every one of his incidents. Deep down it actually kind of freaks him out, solely because he thinks he knows the way to a woman’s heart is confidence, and he’s always just short of that when you’re present.

Deep breaths.

In.

Out.

Focus. Not on the source of any panic or anxiety or any other negative emotion you may be feeling, no. Focus on yourself. You are here. Things are currently bad for many people, yes. I am not here to sugercoat the truth, merely assist you in dealing with it.

And the first step to that is taking care of yourself. Stabilize yourself emotionally first. Listen to some soothing music, watch videos of cute animals, something to focus your mind on other things. Distance yourself or surround yourself with your friends and/or loved ones for support; you know what works best for you, I do not.

Next comes your physical needs. If you have not eaten in a while and can handle the thought of food, then go eat. Something, anything, is better than nothing, both for your body and your mind. Even drinking something like soda or juice is preferable to nothing. If you are able to even attempt to sleep, then do so. You need the energy and resting helps your mind process through things, even if you only manage to sleep for a few hours.

After that… Find something to latch onto. Something to keep in mind as the following days pass by. Hope works well for some people; the hope that things will eventually get better. Optimism is another common thing; realizing or reaffirming that the situation is not as bad as it might seem at first. Spite is just as strong and as valid of a motivator as the others; the drive to see the opposition crumble and be proven wrong.

Whatever it is, whatever you find, you latch onto it, dig your nails into it, and you do not let it go. If or when you find yourself slipping into panic or anxiety or despair again, you look back at it and you remember. Remember the drive that you yourself have chosen, whatever it may be.

And, remember that, if you ever lose sight of it, then there are plenty around you who will support you and help you locate it again.
