...never the bellwether

First, since loosewiring was looking for happy songs, but I was in a gloomy enough mood that I didn't post them then. (yes, this was me failing at usefulness. ALAS.) There was memetext, but it was mostly just "post songs that cheer you up. Then other people do too". So have a bunch of mostly-terrible 80's pop.

The next one I couldn't find the actual video -- all I could find was someone youtubing themselves lipsyncing to it. Whatever.

And, ganked from puddingtreat, another state-of-the-muse report meme:

character: Sangamon Taylor (29) [toxicspiderman]
series: Zodiac
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ ■ □ He's a lot of work, voice-wise, but I write tags all the time without canon open on my knee now, and when the voice is there I damn well know it, and when it's hazy I can still keep threads going with stuff I don't cringe at after the fact.
cast strength: □ □ □ □ □ Can we have negative stats for "no-one even recognizes him?" Heh.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ □ □ □ I'm sort of at a loss as to exactly what to do next with him, but he's fun to just fling around.
likelihood of drop: □ □ □ □ □

character: Taura (20) [ninelivesonce]
series: The Vorkosigan Saga
muse strength: ■ ■ □ □ □ The RL event was hard on keeping her voice, although <3 to llamaramauk for a thread in dear_mun that helped since it was actual-Taura. I think she'll be fine once I have her out and about. I'll should probably reread at least one of her short stories tomorrow before throwing her into Dayshift. Also, weirdly -- having portrait icons for her helps SO MUCH. I don't miss them at all with S.T., but I did with her.
cast strength: □ □ □ □ □ She's at least recognized fairly often.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ ■ □ She's easy to have NS plans with, since she's a joiner. History club is always an easy plan.
likelihood of drop: □ □ □ □ □

character: Spark Brushel (29) [noteandquote]
series: Ace Attorney
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ I can either do him or I can't, any particular day. If I can, he comes really easily. If I can't, I can't BS him like I can the other two. This is not a function of experience, I don't think, since I've been playing him much longer. I just have to be in the right mood for his thought processes to be available.
cast strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ Not sure how to answer this -- he's in a single-fandom game but our cast has some big holes, which for single-fandom can be tough.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ □ □ □ Should be getting easier as forjusticeonly is hitting AJ canon events, although he doesn't have the built-in relationships a lot of characters do.
likelihood of drop: ■ □ □ □ □

character: Vera Misham (12) [whitehellebore]
series: Ace Attorney
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ ■ □ She's fairly straightforward, although I could never play her as a primary character. I just cover her for plot stuff in FJO.
cast strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ See Spark's comment.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ □ □ □ For stuff that has canon reasons, easy as pie. Otherwise, pretty much impossible, due to not talking to anyone ever.
likelihood of drop: ■ □ □ □ □

Not listing past or future, especially since it highlights the embarassing fact that I managed to accidentally have four characters on past/present/potential lists (out of not that many more) who all turned out to be the same age. Which was, for a significant part of that time, also my own age. At least I'm older, now, and they aren't. (And it was completely unintentional; I had to reread Zodiac with a fine-toothed comb to find the one mention of S.T.'s age, Spark was older when I started playing him but got moved backwards in canon to app at FJO, and the others were also taken at those ages for very specific point-in-canon reasons. (For those keeping score at home, the others would be Phoenix Wright back in the PWDR in the "past" category, and Lana Skye in the "potential" category. I'm considering her for damned but I don't know if I have the time. Going to do a canon review and attempt at app-sample over Christmas.)

And the code:
<table><tr><td><img src="icon link goes here"></td><td><br /><b>character:</b> Name of character (age) [<lj user="journal name">]
<b>muse strength:</b> ■ ■ ■ ■ □ (1-5, black marks for points)
<b>cast strength:</b> ■ ■ ■ ■ □
<b>plotting capabilities:</b> ■ □ □ □ □
<b>likelihood of drop:</b> □ □ □ □ □ </td></table>
