Or even c) writing up my thoughts on AA:I in these things we call sentences.
Instead, I will ramble about characters present and not-actually-potential (as I am slightly past the number I can handle, but hopefully once Lana becomes non-brand-new I'll be okay) while watching bobsleds and feeling sorry for myself.
character: Sangamon Taylor (29) [toxicspiderman]
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ Need to do a canon review, but I don't think he's OOC or slipping. I just need to keep him from getting stale. Possibly write up that completely self-indulgent post-Damned fic.
cast strength: □ □ □ □ □ None, and never going to get any, and that's OK.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ □ □ This has gotten better since the last time I did this -- he's gotten more involved in a few things. Still kind of hard to keep him engaged rather than sulking sometimes.
likelihood of drop: □ □ □ □ □ Not going to happen.
character: Spark Brushel (29) [noteandquote]
series: Ace Attorney
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ The past couple of days, he's been the easiest of them all to tag. I don't know what that says about my state of mind while sick and playing AA:I.
cast strength: ■ □ □ □ □ Sadly, I'm afraid FJO is slowly dying. We just lost our Kristoph, which was huge. I canceled the autopay on his paid account, but reupped after I saw which icons I'd lose, and while I could have deleted some newer ones, I like his icons.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ □ □ With AJ canon kicking off, he's in as good of a shape as anyone in the game.
likelihood of drop: ■ ■ □ □ □ On my part? None. On the game's part for dying? Somewhat likely. I can't help carry a game on his scrawny shoulders.
character: Taura (20) [ninelivesonce]
series: The Vorkosigan Saga
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ She's hit the point of having to really start extrapolating from canon and filling her out, which I find tough sometimes. It'll be fine, eventually, it's just a rough patch. And I have massive post-size guilt with her sometimes, as she doesn't tl;dr much.
cast strength: □ □ □ □ □ None, and unlikely to get one, although not quite as impossible as S.T.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ ■ □ Same as before -- she's a joiner, and History Club is always an option at night. Though the stalled threads are frustrating at times. (Okay, so right now I am taking advantage of it myself to get some rest, but.)
likelihood of drop: □ □ □ □ □ None.
character: Lana Skye (29) [fourstonewalls]
series: Ace Attorney
muse strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ Getting better all the time. Still very new, but I'm having less trouble than I'd expected. (I'd wanted to try playing her for ages -- but hadn't been able to really wrap my head around her in a state I thought I could play until recently.)
cast strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ Smaller than it used to be, but EMA <3
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ □ □ I have no idea what dayshift will bring, really.
likelihood of drop: □ □ □ □ □ Nope.
And the ones I would seriously consider playing if I had infinite free time? No icons as I have none.
character: Melanie Bush [fithackr]
series: Doctor Who
muse strength: ■ □ □ □ □ I haven't done any of the research, but I know this canon way too well for my own sanity. Also, I don't know that I could ever pull off a British character well enough to be comfortable with it. I realize I am weirdly picky about this.
cast strength: ■ ■ □ □ □ At most places, there are a handful of New Who characters but rarely any Classic Who. I wouldn't put her at Damned -- she wouldn't fit. I keep thinking she'd be perfect at dramadramaduck except I have no interest/time in dealing with two big games, and I'm not fond of commentspam. It just suits her. She's also probably the only one I could ever be convinced to try at tenthtwilight if I had again, infinite time to read-play-watch Umineko (what verb are VNs?) and research Japanese history. She's from the 80's, so she could be fit in without serious AUing.
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ □ □ She's friendly and outgoing, which would make that reasonable.
likelihood of apping anywhere: □ □ □ □ □ Nope.
character: Gale [rationedhunger]
series: Digital Devil Saga
muse strength: □ □ □ □ □ I'd need a major canon review, and even then, I'm not sure I could pull him off.
cast strength: ■ □ □ □ □ (at Damned. He'd do okay there.)
plotting capabilities: ■ □ □ □ □ IDK? He's kind of antisocial, and eats people.
likelihood of apping: □ □ □ □ □ Nope.
character: Ziggy [no journal]
muse strength: □ □ □ □ □ Would need to finish canon first. Um.
cast strength: ■ ■ ■ □ □ One of the bigger ones at Damned
plotting capabilities: ■ ■ ■ □ □ Antisocial, but has canonmates.
likelihood of drop: □ □ □ □ □ Nope. Probably most likely of them all to show up in FoC, though.
