TLV - Potential Application Discussion

POTENTIAL APPLICATION DISCUSSION


Thinking about applying for a character, but not quite sure if they're a good fit? This post is dedicated to discussion of that very thing! A jury of your peers will help you in deciding whether or not a character you suddenly have a hankering for would be a fit for the Barge!

THIS IS NOT COMPULSORY. Nobody HAS to participate, and nobody HAS to post here before they post an application! This is just for people who are unsure and would like to have a discussion before they apply.

However, there are some rules.

1. Mods are the final decision makers. So, a lot of people love your character? Got great feedback? But then-- whaaaat?-- you post your app and it's REJECTED? GASP! Sorry, approval here does NOT substitute mod approval. Do NOT use this thread as basis for whining at the mods if your character is rejected. If you do, this thread is getting shut down. (PS: This rule applies EVEN IF ONE OF THE MODS GIVES YOU GOOD FEEDBACK IN THIS THREAD)
2. No content-less posts. I don't want to see any "OMG YES!" or any "HELL NO"s. You have to provide reasons. This post is for constructive discussion.
3. No flaming. This kinda goes with the above. If you think the character is fine but the player can't pull it off, BE CONSTRUCTIVE and don't insult the player.
4. BE HONEST. Speaks for itself. You think a character would be a terrible fit? Then don't say "Oh, it'll be wonderful!"
5. No plotting. A lot of times, people get all excited about making up plots for characters who aren't even in the game yet (and who MAY NOT BE ACCEPTED), leaving those who are in the game with nothing to do with... well, nothing to do. It's distracting and the excitement over "what-ifs" diverts too much from the actual game.
6. Don't take this personally. You do not equal your (potential) character. If everybody thinks it's a lousy character who wouldn't fit, it's NOT an attack on you or your RPing.

Put the character's name as the subject line (ONE CHARACTER PER COMMENT), and be sure to fill out the following form. Yes, some of the questions seem stupid, but these are things we'd like you to keep in mind BEFORE you apply for a character.

Who Are You?: Hilda
Character Name: Vriska Serket
Series: MS Paint Adventures
Warden or Inmate: Inmate; she killed thousands of children to feed her "mother" (a giant spider monster) and literally pushed one of her friends off a cliff because a man on the internet told her to.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: We had one before, so yes, even with the age rule revision (see below).
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active, Vriska is into everything. All of her irons are in the fire. All of them.
Why do you want them?: Basically she's a fantastic character and I would love to play her without a million other castmates.
Potential Concerns: Okay so I know we had MSPA characters here in the past (including a Vriska) and it took a boatload of revisions for them to get in, but I'd like to give it a second chance. There have been a couple things that get brought up a lot and I'll talk about those real quick; if there's anything else you'd like me to get into I can do that too.

Age/maturity: Vriska was apped as thirteen the first time, but that's not her canon age and I think fifteen is a reasonable age to app her at as well. Her canon age at the beginning is six in alien years, which means anywhere from thirteen to fifteen and a half in human years, and she's very much one of the more mature leader types in her canon. Her society is also kind of a horrorterror Ender's Game of Thrones (children learn how to win or they die and she essentially raised herself), so I think she could handle herself on the SS Hellboat. She'd be an inmate, so age is a little less important than it would be if I apped in another character as a warden, because she doesn't have to demand respect from a theoretical serial murderer.

MSPA/Homestuck culture: I love this canon's characters, but I'm not really immersed in the fandom or culture in general. I would have people just assume the obnoxious text (and she would probably abuse video once she found out how easily accessible it was!) and keep the gimmicky canon references to a bare minimum because she can stand alone without them. I'd make up a dictionary for the slang like Kota did for Jane, since her culture does have some unique language that she would use. I don't want her to be impenetrable to other players because she's from a canon that's difficult to get into.

As to getting a flood of HS characters, I honestly doubt I'd get canonmates? As I've said before, I'm not a part of greater Homestuck fandom and I only play from cult hit Japanese stuff and don't really do open memes and stuff, so it's not like anyone really knows I'm over here or would really know she was here. I don't particularly want castmates, in any case, and this game attracts some pretty weird canons to get casts (seriously how the fuck do we have a SAW cast) and has some pretty surprising lone canon warriors (Buffy).

If there's anything else you want me to address, just ask!

[personal profile] lastmanstanding 2012-01-07 07:06 pm (UTC)(link)
...Honestly I am willing to give Homestuck a chance just...as long as there are no original characters. I've been reading up about it and while I still don't get some of it (but we know how I can get about canons lately) I'd be for it.

And we have a SAW cast because it's awesome is why.

that's a pretty man.

prayformefather: (What are you doing?)

[personal profile] prayformefather 2012-01-07 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Gwen
Character Name: Luther Scott
Series: Confession/Deadly Secrets
Warden or Inmate: Inmate
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yessum.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: I hope so? See concerns. :|
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: lol like he has a choice.
Why do you want them?: I apparently like playing teenagers. More specifically, I really would like to pick up an inmate as my next character, because I've only played through one redemption arc, only have one other inmate on board, and playing wardens is more of a specific time sink because you're not really in control of when your character can be retired.

Luther specifically caught my attention because he's the first character I've ever been like HOLY CRAP I WANT TO PLAY HIM SOMEWHERE in a very, very long time who is actually a legit inmate and not a fake warden like Heero or a douchebag like Flynn. I'd be interested in playing through a redemption arc with him and really sitting down and exploring his issues in a way that the movie didn't get into.
Potential Concerns:

My biggest concern is that he's a normal teenager from a normal world, and will want to interact mostly with people his own age because he's a little distrustful of adults and, you know. A teenager. He's kind of halfway between being a social creature and being reclusive? But I think the lack of kids his own age might send him a little more into reclusive territory. He can play nice with adults if he has to, and is super manipulative/good at playing nice with people when he wants to? But I worry he won't have much meaningful CR with them and won't go out of his way to foster it, and will generally be a hermit when he isn't >[ that Kirk stole his face. This might have been less of an issue a few months ago, but our population of teenagers on the Barge has dwindled, and I've been a little discouraged by how my past teenage characters have fared in the past when it comes to meaningful CR, especially considering Luther is also from a pretty obscure canon, and there's that whole issue of tag what you know, stalk everything else.

He'd also need a relatively specific warden? In that he'd need someone to be a surrogate parent in some ways, or at least a similar figure to that on the Barge, and I'm not sure if the pool of available people would offer that/be willing to work with that, so it sort of affects my timing on when I'd app him.

And speaking of timing, lol character number six. :| I'm planning on letting Heero and Flynn out of here once they graduate an inmate/graduate, but neither of those things are going to happen within the next few days, so I'm not sure if I want to app him this month, next month or backburner him until god knows when, if that makes sense.

SO BASICALLY, he is my first ever more legit inmatey character I have interest in, I really want to play him and voice testing has gone well/I've remained consistently interested in him for more than a few weeks, but I'm worried about how he'll do CR wise, especially when I have five other people demanding my attention right now.

I've seen in other RPs (and here) sometimes someone totally normal can be an excellent perspective character. It might require altering his narrative role to make him more interesting from a point of interaction? He can be the normal character introduces abruptly to this really strange world with unusual crap happening. Which will take the focus off his reasons being here initially, but becoming acclimated they might show up again.
ivanova: (what the fresh hell?)

[personal profile] ivanova 2012-01-07 09:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Kit
Character Name: Susan Ivanova
Series: Babylon 5
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Deffo active.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Yes.
Why do you want them?: Susan is awesome, would really put alotta thought into a Warden and would totally be doing this for Marcus Cole. I'd be taking her after she wakes up and finds him dead at her bedside after telling her that he loves her and then giving her his lifeforce through an alien artifact. When Ivanova says she's going to do something, she does it with the utmost commitment, through whatever trials and fucked up situations come her way. She's career military, the second in command of a space station, and an all around badass.
Potential Concerns: I dunno that I have any actual concerns, I just *wave* wanted to get a feels. She'd work best if she could get herself an inmate what actually needed help, but not someone who couldn't take a stern talking to, y'know? As always, lack of her cannonmates will be distressing, but she'd got enough will (GOD she does she have will) to suck it up and do her new job justice.

I'm starting a rewatch pretty soon here. But I figured I'd pop her up in here. Plus, lookitthisusername. \o/ I am bawsomed out that I got it.

Do you know how many times I considered applying that character?

No.

No, you do not.

And the only reason I didn't was because I don't have access to the DVDs.

She would be a tremendously fit for the situation.

brokenweapon: ([David] The illest shades // greencat3)

Tintin

[personal profile] brokenweapon 2012-01-09 07:27 pm (UTC)(link)
barge needs moar belgians y/n/squid?

Who Are You?: Alex
Character Name: Tintin (Just Tintin.)
Series: The Adventures of Tintin (most likely comic-verse, even though movie-verse would be easier; mo-cap Jamie Bell's face has a tendency to freak me out a little sometimes and could fall into some players' uncanny valley)
Warden or Inmate: The wardeniest warden who ever wardened.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Ought to, though there may be some concerns (e.g. ambiguous age) which I will address below.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Probably - he has a habit of being cagey about his personal life (something I am sure you are all used to from my characters :| whyyyy) but he's a friendly sort. If a little mischievous sometimes. And his penchant for investigation of murders and unsavory doings is probably going to land him in a whole mess of danger on the Barge...
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: GREAT SNAKES ADVENTURE YES LET'S GO INVESTIGATE ALL THE THINGS
Why do you want them?: Because he's Tintin. I grew up reading the series and I think he'd make a pretty excellent warden, due to the whole "he's from Belgian adventure comics and is uncorruptable" thing, as well as having the most insane good luck ever to grace the world. And he can take multiple concussions like a champ. He's pretty much the most G-rated badass ever.

Also, HE PUNCHED OUT A BEAR.
Potential Concerns: His age has always been ambiguous, but Hergé did state that he's probably around the 17-19 age range at the point I'd be pulling him from. HOWEVER, he has never been shown to face "teenager concerns" like school or parents or even hormones - he has a flat of his own for the first half of the series, which nobody seems to think is weird - and is, through magic or science or being made of psychic paper, for all intents and purposes, a grown adult.

Then of course there's the prickly issue of 1) Tintin in the Land of the Soviets (Tintin Au Pays des Soviets) (which is entirely propaganda) and 2) Tintin in the Congo (Tintin Au Congo), neither of which have stood up well to the test of time (i.e. the original version of Tintin au Congo was soooooo uh, not racially sensitive and still causes controversy when published in English today). Hergé saw the error of his ways when he realized that he was basically pushing uber-right-wing Belgian Catholic propaganda and actually started doing the research for the series, which immediately jumped from "meh" to "pretty damn fantastic". The rest of the series is all good, though, and those two books are pretty much regarded as discontinuity. WE DO NOT SPEAK OF IT.

No idea how I'd handle his timeline. The movie at least gives a date of the early 1930s in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot of a newspaper, so I may default to that.

...oh god this ended up massive.

I really loved the cartoon series for Tintin that used to come on HBO when I was a kid (which is why I REALLY REALLY wanna see this movie), so I'll admit I squealed a little when I saw this in potentials.

I think that separating yourself from the early novels wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if they're not widely regarded as canon.

[personal profile] quickened 2012-01-09 07:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Who are you? DJ (aka, a newbie)
Character: Richie Ryan
Series: Highlander: The Series
Warden or Inmate: Warden.
Do they meet all rules and requirements? As far as I can tell, unless Immortality of the Highlander sort would need powering down.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others? Oh yes. Quite the social butterfly, our Richie.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out? All the activity. Even if he were in a funk, he would likely participate to ignore the problems. |D
Why do you want them? RICHIE IS AWESOME. Okay, but no, more seriously...

Richie is young. He's of a people who potentially live for hundreds if not thousands of years, and here he is still in his twenties and trying to fit in among all these big dogs. Shoving him in the game and making him a Warden would give him the chance to try and prove himself and possibly give him a few hard lessons about being the older, more mature and responsible type in the relationship (even if he ends up assigned to someone who is... older and more mature, shhh). Trial by fire that would be very good for potential growth.
Potential concerns: Richie is not the type to come up with creative punishment for inmates and may require a lot of help that he would be reluctant to ask for at first. He would be very gun-ho about the job at first, just not very good at it aside from the part where he can ram his head against a metaphorical wall for ages and not give up.

I don't know the canon at all, but from what you've said, he sounds like he'd be a really interesting addition to the Barge, especially since you've got a lot of ideas for how he can progress and develop on board as a warden. As for your concerns, we've definitely had wardens who have kind of flailed around and not been sure of what they're doing before, so as long as the inmate you agree to partner up with knows that that's what's going to happen and is okay with it, you should be fine. Other wardens are pretty good sources of advice, solicited or not, so. Basically you have caught my interest and I'd like to see how he fits in here. xD

[personal profile] acid_rayne 2012-01-15 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
Yeeeeeah... Difficult one.

Mayhap just bring them in with no realistic intention, whatsoever, of actual redemption? The lack of alcohol is much more difficult.

The only barrier with comedy characters is whether you can see yourself being inspired to write them during lots of serious stuff. Think back on some instances like that and ask yourself how you would have done precisely that!

What if you played a non-female lady, instead?

spoilers for the 1/22 Dangan Ronpa update but if you're following it you've read that already

[personal profile] meanstwin 2012-01-24 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Hilda
Character Name: Touko Fukawa
Series: Dangan Ronpa/Shotgun Diplomacy
Warden or Inmate: ...eeeehhhhhhh...
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Yes
Why do you want them?: Touko's Stephenie Meyer with a persecution complex. It's hilarious and fantastic.
Potential Concerns: There's no way Touko would work as a warden, for the same reasons Naoto failed, but as an inmate I'm not sure the Barge can give her the kind of redemption she'd need. Regular plain vanilla Touko is kind of a bitch, but unless she's secretly plagiarizing her novels she's not actually hurting anyone but herself.

But she's developed an alternate personality, "Syo", for reasons that probably are never going to be explained, and Syo is a cheerful serial killer who takes pride in her work. Regular Touko knows about Syo and does her best to avoid triggering her appearance (she has a guess as to what her triggers are), but because, well, Syo's wanted for murder, she's never sought outside help and can't really control it.

I'm not sure if she goes under the River Tam clause because plain vanilla Touko's a (mostly) functional human being, or if she's eligible since, well, Syo's racked up an impressive body count for a skinny teenage girl.

I do not know a damn thing about multiple personalities except that it's apparently DID, not MPD, and would do my research if I decided to bring her on this crazy place.

Re: spoilers for the 1/22 Dangan Ronpa update but if you're following it you've read that already

[personal profile] peter_vincent 2012-01-24 07:28 am (UTC)(link)
I.. had to read that over, like, three times to actually get what was going on. BUT. At the end, it seems to be that Touko has DID with one half a murderer and the other half... not?

Hrm. Well, having played a character that faked MPD quite convincingly, I can say that, in my experience? It was awkward to constantly switch between the two personalities. (Yes I call it MPD because he came from the 90s when it was still called that) Then again, that difficulty was probably a fail on my part, since he was faking it, but I think that kind of complication would still apply, possibly.

But I can't say too much, not really knowing the character. Off-hand though? I'm not sure of anyone with DID/MPD that has been on the barge for too long.

garona halforcen

[personal profile] darknessb4me 2012-01-25 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Fire (Arthas/Chromie)
Character Name: Garona Halforcen
Series: ...warcraft
Warden or Inmate: Inmate. She's got chronic literal backstabbing disorder, and while a lot of that is people influencing/using her it's gotten to the point where that's all she knows.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: No matter how many times she betrays or is betrayed, she keeps opening herself up. She really really wants to be understood and loved.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active!
Why do you want them?: I want to app another character, and canon is never going to give her the vindication she deserves. She also really charmed me in one of the tie-in books.
Potential Concerns: Three characters from the same canon?? I can keep them apart but... should I expand my horizons? Am I hogging slots? Are people sick of WoW? Should I try a fandom that's actually challenging instead of one where the good writing is mediocre and the bad writing is Go'el?

Re: garona halforcen

[personal profile] changemydear 2012-01-28 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I'd be slightly wary of Garona if only because of the 'three characters from the same canon' thing. I know that WOW's a pretty big/expansive canon but...yeah.
nathananthonypetrelli: (working)

[personal profile] nathananthonypetrelli 2012-01-27 04:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Andy
Character Name: Nathan Petrelli
Series: Heroes
Warden or Inmate: He could be either, but I think he's suited more as an inmate. He has attempted genocide, committed electoral fraud, planned to destroy New York to get to power, abandoned his girlfriend and daughter and then drove away his wife and sons with his drinking. Also, he can be a real dick.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Human, over age, primary power is flight (with some associated minor secondary powers). Useful for pulling cats out of trees and reaching high shelves, but not much else. Can get hurt or killed, and to all intents and purposes a vanilla human who can save on air fares.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: He was a lawyer and politician, so he's naturally drawn to schmoozing with people he thinks would help him advance and playing nice with everyone. He also interacts with people he doesn't particularly like or think much of if it means he'll get something out of them, or he absolutely can't wriggle out of it.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: He'd grumble and bitch about it if it was too inconvenient and roll his eyes if it was too absurd, but he'd take part. And maybe even enjoy it although you'd never get him to admit it.
Why do you want them?: I always liked him, even though the show went down the toilet. He was one of the most complex and developed characters in it, even if the writing and characterisation seemed to be influenced by questionable substances a lot of the time, and reminded me of a character out of a Shakespeare play - with complex motivations and a more complicated morality than even he himself thinks, he's neither a complete hero nor an irredeemable villain.
Potential Concerns: He overestimates his own importance and abilities, can be argumentative, and his way of thinking is just a little TOO rigid, structured and conservative. He tends to look to others for guidance even though he perceives himself as a leader, and even if he DOES take the initiative, it tends to end badly for him. Basically, a butt monkey in the skin of a hero. However, that doesn't prevent him from being an arrogant ass or (when his plans go boom in his face) a self pitying loser. I expect multiple characters to roll their eyes at him or punch him. Or both. Also, hot blondes are his kryptonite and his brain tends to throw up its hands and go on vacation whenever there is one anywhere near him. Has problems with alcohol addiction which he acknowledged only superficially and a guilt/ leadership complex the size of Australia, with an ego the size of Jupiter. Tends to stick his head in the sand about things he sees as inconvenient, and was born and bred to a life of privilege and control.

He sounds great for this place! :) and he will have TWO FACETWINS. wait until Cath hears, she loves Adrian Pasdar.

Anyway, I think all you'd have to do is figure out where you want to inmate-cap his abilities. Is he going to keep them in full or have them reduced or not have them at all?

Magna Aegwynn

[personal profile] darknessb4me 2012-01-29 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Fire
Character Name: Aegwynn, Kicker of Asses
Series: it's fucking warcraft again
Warden or Inmate: See below
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Active
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active
Why do you want them?: Aegwynn is hilarious, I want a third character that's an inmate, I have her voice, and I would love to play her younger version against Buffy.
Potential Concerns: Firstly, she cold be either an inmate or a warden depending on her canon point. She was chosen as a "guardian," a powerful mortal chosen once per generation and given special abilities by a secret council. Their job is to protect the world from demons, which the general public doesn't even believe in. So a bit like a Slayer, or a one-person Men In Black.

The problem is, Aegwynn sees the council as corrupt, ignores them, takes a very aggressive stance against demons and goes so far as to bring the leaders to Azeroth herself so she can kill them. This results in the Legion targetting her in a special way, more on that later. When it is time for the next Guardian to be selected, Aegwynn is still alive and refuses to abdicate power, instead having another mage impregnate her and declaring her son will be the next guardian. While pregnant (because Aegwynn kicks ass), she summons and kills the avatar of the first demon. This dude is crafty, thought, and after his physical form dies his spirit possesses Aegwynn's unborn baby.

Then the baby is born and grows up and eveything is really fucked.

Like 400 years later she mellows out and is just a cool old lady, if still a little vain and controlling, That's where she'll be from if I were to app her as a warden.

Second thing: Three warcraft characters, like I said with Garona. Can it be done? Has it been done? SHOULD it be done? Aegwynn and Arthas were never alive at the same time and wouldn't know each other's names, and Chromie will avoid her because of paradoxes like she does Arthas.

As far as having 3 Warcraft characters... I don't really see a problem? The Warcraft universe is so large and varied, with lots of different time periods.


...She sounds a lot like Buffy actually. :| Her refusal against the council, taking things into her own hands, saying screw the powers, I'm The Power. They'd have much to discuss, and Buffy would be very uh. Well. We'll see.

EDIT: IF THAT SOUNDED WEIRD I DIDN'T MEAN IT TO. D: I'd like to see her here!

Who Are You?: Fire.
Character Name: Edward Cullen. Okay, hear me out.
Series: Twilight. Okay, seriously now, just hang on.
Warden or Inmate: Inmate. There, now are you relaxed?
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: He'd uh. "Interact."
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: active.
Why do you want them?: Because he's a raging douche with deep-seated control problems that need to be addressed as a thing that exists and is bad.
Potential Concerns: The canon seems to think his issues with control and dominance are not a thing, or maybe a good thing, but his fixation on asserting himself speaks to what is probably a more fundamental issue with his self-image and what he believes about might vs right, i.e., he is aware of his own physical power but is not confident enough to not try to lord it over people constantly. If I portray this as inherently disrespectful to Bella, is that too much my own headcanon/bias and not canon-compliant? Or is acting like he's perfect an even bigger problem?

...I'm also not super sure I want to watch the other movies, ever.

Ngl, I hate Twilight but would actually be pretty interested to see him played here as an inmate if you were serious about getting him through his bucketful of issues, which I certainly do think he has. I like when people use the Barge to give more depth to characters with limited screentime, are from a bad canon or just plain are badly written people and use it as an opportunity to really flesh them out and change them from being horrific dicks to more functional members of society, and Edward's a character I'd kind of love to see some serious sense smacked into, especially if his issues are played seriously and written as THIS GUY IS ABUSIVE AND NOT PERFECT. :U

So basically I would be down for this.

Who Are You?: Melanie
Character Name: Alex Hunter
Series: White Collar
Warden or Inmate: Inmate, pretty sure. See concerns.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Aaactive
Why do you want them?: I've always liked her, and I've dabbled with her for a few months now.
Potential Concerns: So if anyone's seen White Collar, she's not really the most... evil of Neal's associates. She doesn't go around killing people but she is a fence and she does love her job a whole lot. So I guess she wouldn't really be a hard graduate.

There also isn't a whole lot about how she got into the world of high class crime or her background or what she does when she isn't around Neal, which could be tricky.

Writer: Eric.
Character: Aeryn Sun.
Series: 'Farscape'.
Status: Warden.
Do they meet all rules and requirements? Yes.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others? A bit cold, but curious.
Would this character be active in ports and floods or sit them out? Aeryn is a survivalist!
Why do you want them? Because I've finally reached the end of the show and television movie... It's become my most favourite science-fiction show in all of television history! And, really, Aeryn has virtually been living the concept of the game for ages: Practically severed from the brutal military regime she spent a lifetime in the service of, in order to survive amongst a small group of prisoners on a living biological spaceship, where almost every week something either hilarious or full of nightmare fuel happened and had to be resolved in what was usually the cleverest of ways.
Seriously, living for a few years in utterly foreign surroundings with a bunch of convicts and being forced to undergo a series of increasingly perilous/humiliating events... How is that not perfect?
The humour on the show was just ripe for a game setting like this, too! The crew attempting to learn English:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV8ZtznATe8
Concerns: N/A

Character: Scorpius.
Series: 'Farscape'.
Status: Inmate.
Do they meet all rules and requirements? With the exception of appearance! But the show makes it clear that there is technology to alter this even temporarily.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?
Would this character be active in ports and floods or sit them out?
Why do you want them? Scorpius is like a cross between a very able-bodied Davros and Skeletor - except dressed like some kind of sexual fetishist. Also, I am badly in need of a villainous inmate to write for.
Concerns: THIS IS A MALE CHARACTER. More to the point, here's the main thing: This is one of those characters who is defined by utter ruthlessness. He's done absolutely terrible things in pursuit of his goals. Yet, because of the way the show is grounded in pragmatism, Scorpius is one of those 'fight-fire-with-fire' characters - someone whose methods, while distasteful, have actually produced viable results. How would a warden realistically deal with something like that? Someone whose methods, while sometimes terrifying, have, in their own small way, sometimes been necessary, because of a far greater threat to life?

Character: Ripley 8.
Series: 'Alien' films.
Status: Warden.
Do they meet all rules and requirements? Yes.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others? Yes.
Would this character be active in ports and floods or sit them out? As the tainted-by-Alien-DNA clone, she's sort of loner-ish, but by the end of the film, has come to be a bit more sociable.
Why do you want them? Because I seem to do rather well with empowered female characters with a relative alien point of view. She is also a character I've considered, on and off, for several years here.
Concerns: Could be a bit too close to Rayne's personality? With the apathy and all. On the other hand, she's not as crude and isn't half-vampire (she is, however, part-Alien).

Character: Drusilla.
Series: 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'/'Angel'.
Status: Inmate.
Do they meet all rules and requirements? Yes.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others? Possibly so... I've had time, since her last appearance here, to see how she's been handled in comics and stuff, which have given me ideas.
Would this character be active in ports and floods or sit them out? If they are applicable.
Why do you want them? Firstly, I am badly in need of an inmate character. Secondly, it's been long enough to have got re-inspired for the character. Thirdly... Certain people have been hinting they would... Like me to do so. c:
Concerns: Would a potential re-application be tainted by my having already written her a couple of times here? D:

DO.IT. yes all the support from me, like, forever. I don't think her prior outings would matter. Barge amnesia, spotty memory, all different ways to go about it. Hell, I had Will here twice, and likewise with Aaron. Possibly with Ichabod, too....

OKAY POINT BEING. Repeat characters are fun! And that's all I can say for now cuz my phone is like UM HI LOW BATTERY HERE D:

Merlin spoilers ahead, fair warning!

[personal profile] gil 2012-02-01 10:00 am (UTC)(link)
Who Are You?: Neu
Character Name: Guinevere
Series: BBC Merlin
Warden or Inmate: Part of my problem? See concerns!
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Seems to
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes!
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: She'd always try to help any way she could.
Why do you want them?: I love Gwen; she's an extremely humble, kind-hearted person who is still in the process of finding her voice and place in the world. I think she's an under-loved character and (in previous seasons, not so much now) very misunderstood so I wanted to give her some perspective.
Potential Concerns:
My biggest is figuring out the canon point and, from there, figuring out if she should be an Inmate or a Warden. I typically play Guinevere from early in season 2 when she's still trying to figure things out, has been thrown a Lancelot curveball and is trying to get over being interested in Arthur. I am considering apping her in from the point in her canon in season 4 when she is in exile from Camelot for adultery. Considering the circumstances (she was under an enchantment CLEARLY NOT HER FAULT RIGHT GUYS?!) would she be inmate material? Another possible canon point, though a cheap one, is the end of season 4 when she's queen.

(Don't have much time right now so sorry for short reply!)

I haven't seen that far into the series, but from what you're describing, she wouldn't be an inmate. She was under an enchantment. Also, one act of adultery is not enough to be an inmate, especially when it's Gwen, who is such a good person at heart.

Big no to the inmate qualifications! Hope this helped. <3

Who Are You?: Gwen
Character Name: Tai Kamiya
Series: ... Digimon >>
Warden or Inmate: Warden all the way bro.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Depending on what point in canon I'd take him from, he does actually meet minimum age restrictions, so IGNORE ALL THE SEASON ONE ICONS.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yep.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active.
Why do you want them?: So many reasons. :| idk I end up picking a lot of my characters because I've liked them/they've held my interest for a very long time, and considering this hasn't been on air in like twelve years... yeah. Tai specifically just sort of turned into the character who kind of sneakily evolved into the character I'd be most interested rping, despite liking Matt a lot when I was younger and. Yes.
Potential Concerns:

WHERE TO BEGIN well obviously this would not happen for a bit as I have six characters and ho shit five of them are wardens, so I'd kind of like to app another inmate before being like PLAY ALL THE WARDENS. Anyone I pick up is probably getting swapped out for Heero or Flynn, so there's that, too.

More generally, he's another extreme dogooder hero type? And those are fun and all, but I've found it's hard in crisis situations to have several characters who would go FUCK THIS I'M ON IT EVERYONE LISTEN TO ME because 1. in theory they'd all want to work together/power struggle and 2. I end up defaulting to just using one of them and the other however many are left look incompetent and silly. Tai has an advantage(?) in that unlike Dick or Charles he's literally just a kid without Agumon here, so he'd be forced into taking a quieter role due to not being able to fight zombies on his own.

As for age/maturity/would he be a good warden... I'm honestly going to say yes. He might be a derpy teenager, but we've had derpy teenagers as wardens before and they've done fine, so as long as whoever he got stuck with was aware that he was going to have his moments of utter disaster and moments of being surprisingly insightful, I think it would be alright. He's also got an unkillablely optimistic streak in him, which I've found is helpful in terms of character longevity and he has gone through some fairly upsetting stuff, it's just played off as not as big a deal because... it's a kid show. It doesn't change the fact that he's had brushes with death, seen friends die, and had to save the world, so, I think he'd actually do pretty well on the Barge.

THAT SAID, is this like. Wandering too closely into Phineas and Ferb territory for people? I know it's a kid show, but I do think he could work, it's not like we've never had people from kid shows on board before lookingatyouMozeandShego, and again, he's been through rough stuff, he can handle a lot for a fifteen/sixteen year old. I don't think he'll get crushed under the weight of stuff going on and ngl he's not a character I'd want to intentionally break? So I'd do my best to keep him from stuff that would really crush him.

Also lol so I grew up with the American dub, and I know some people are really, really touchy about the differences between them. Is this going to be a huge issue if I want to play him from that particular adaptation of canon? Like ngl I've been playing Heero off the English dub and no one's ever complained about it, but Digimon is shockingly srs bsns on this front for some people and yeah. idk the idea struck me months ago and keeps coming back so.

Who Are You?: Gwen :c
Character Name: Zuko
Series: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yep.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yep.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Oh yes.
Why do you want them?: I miss him. :c
Potential Concerns:

I dropped him before. :V Right now it's kind of a toss up between him or Luther as characters I'd actually seriously considering apping within a month or so, and part of me is tempted to go with Luther because he's an inmate and we're always in need of those? But Zuko's got less 'idk if he'll fit in here' concerns for me, and I really do miss him.

I dropped him last time because of being busy/stressed out and feeling like I needed to cut back on my cast, rather than a voice or motivation issue, but at the same time, he got really, really hard to play when his inmate was idling out because he's so motivation driven. :V I'm kind of toying with the idea of bringing him in from a slightly earlier canonpoint and seeing if that helps? But at the same time, I liked some of his former CR and so yeah. Not sure what to do with that.

I've never actually reapped anyone before? And it's been a few months since he was here, so. Do people have advice/things to be aware of when reapping/any input here?

I will avoid any and all puns

Who Are You?: Yuna
Character Name:Patience Phillips
Series: Catwoman (yes, THAT one)
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: I'd assume so.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Interact as much as I can.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: See above!
Why do you want them?: I miss having a strong/confident/badass chick in my roster. (I think my last was Verona, which was quite a while back). Patience, especially post-film, very much fits that mold. Plus, she's not a goody-goody type of warden. As she says herself, "I might not be a hero, but I'm certainly not a killer". This after she, well, killed someone :| But it's still a good quote!

And ngl, I'd love to have the canon confusion with the DC folks.

Potential Concerns: Holy horrible canon, Batman!

Okay, okay. It's not that bad, honestly. But the movie does have its issues. Not least of which is Patience is brought back to life via mystical cat-breath and becomes more, er. Feline-esque as a result. The film handles this with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer (See also: this). Where Selina just mimics a cat-like demeanor, Patience actually is. If that makes sense.

So much potential for campiness. :| Maybe a good fit, maybe not, I'm just kinda still trying to decide.

YOU HAVE WRITTEN FOR A 'VAN HELSING' CHARACTER, JUST LIKE ME, YUNA.

Bad canon should no longer be one of your concerns. c:

I think that if you introduced a touch of the mannerisms from the 'Arkham City' game character's incarnation to offset the less plausible ones, then your own portrayal would emerge with a life of its own.

Who Are You?: Yuna. Again.
Character Name: Ororo Munroe aka Storm
Series: X-Men film trilogy
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yup!
Why do you want them?: Same reason as with Catwoman. My brainspace needs a hbic. (And the fact they're both PB'd by Halle Berry is actually coincidence.)

Potential Concerns: A lack of motivation for needing the barge, for one thing. Since Xavier's "death", X3 seems to indicate she's basically the new headmaster, so she's not the sort who would just up and leave all of that, even with the idea of 'barge time doesn't equal real world time' thing.

Another thing is she's so in tune to the weather, and it to her emotions, that I think going Into Space, and essentially being cut off from that, would be not quite as appealing. Not like she needs to summon a lightning bolt every second or something, but I think it's like an extra sense, something she'd feel odd without.

[personal profile] acid_rayne 2012-02-14 08:05 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think that motivation for being around should necessarily be an issue. Just keep it ambiguous, like I originally did for Rayne and have her say it's personal, if any characters eventually ask about it. :)

Also, the enclosure has weather systems. She can go there to 'recharge' and stuff. Or just create her own little self-contained miniature ones in her room?

Who Are You?: Bear, with (as always) that canon-mate no one wanted!
Character Name: Scrad/Charlie
Series: Men in Black
Warden or Inmate: Inmate.
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: I think so.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: They're pretty chatty.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: I could see them getting into all of the trouble, yes.
Why do you want them?: I have actually loved this little weasel since before the movie came out. What how why? They released the official novelization & a behind the scenes book (both of which are things I am a sucker for) with full script about a month before the movie came out. In both, Scrad/Charlie has a fantastic, redemptive character arc. In the movie, he disappears half way through for no reason just before that arc begins. What happened? The ending of MIB 2 had to be hastily re-shot after 9/11 because the final act took place on top of the WTC and featured a big bomb (supplied by Scrad/Charlie for the purposes of blowing up evil Laura Flynn Boyle). Either Johnny Knoxville was unavailable for re-shoots, or someone watched the dailies and decided he didn't have the chops (a production still of Scrad holding the bomb remains, so scenes with it were shot), but whatever the reason, this character's sub-plot was completely hacked out of the film. I'd like to return the character arc that's due to him.
Potential Concerns:
1.) Is this an applicable character?
He does have two heads, and they don't always agree. Despite this, I personally consider him one, single character, not two. There have also been similar characters on the Barge (Valmont/Shendu currently, and previously Brock/Venom and Bruce/The Hulk [sort of]), but it's not exactly the same situation.
2.) OMFG WTF is he?
They never say. There's an episode of the animated series that has an alien called a Symbiote that's similar (a head that grows out of someone else's neck), and some fans theorize that that's what Charlie is. On the other hand, Scrad/Charlie is different enough from Troy (Troy was sort of featureless and had powers Scrad/Charlie doesn't) that it could be argued that they're a different species. There's also a line in the original script that implies they were born attached and the novelization flat-out says they were. I could still make the argument that Troy is what would happen if Charlie detached from Scrad (which...makes Scrad Charlie's father...), or something. The plus side of that is that I would have some amount of canon history to draw from, instead of having to headcanon an entire race, their culture, and their biology (which I could do, but the former is always preferable). The down side is: I'm not sure I actually believe he is a Symbiote.
timesbureaucrat: (:-D)

[personal profile] timesbureaucrat 2012-02-20 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
I would love this so much. MORE ALIENS! MORE MIB CHARACTERS!

I would think he's an applicable character despite the two heads. I think Brock/Venom and Jamie/Khaji Da provide a precedent for people who are two entities with one body in a symbiotic relationship.

As for the WTF is he, I think there are enough similarities to the Symbiote that you could say that Scrad/Charlie is a sub-species. So you could use the Symbiote race for a baseline culture and biology and then note how Scrad/Charlie are somewhat different.

Who Are You?: Hilda
Character Name: Eve Genoard
Series: Baccano (probably primarily book canon)
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active c:
Why do you want them?: I'd like to try a badass not-crazy girl that still suits my non-action-girl tastes trying to blow a guy's head off in the book nonwithstanding, and while she's eighteen-ish at the point I'd play her (about six months post-canon) she's more of a "young woman" than a teenager (the teenager-ness is a big part of why I dropped Naoto and never apped Vriska).
Potential Concerns: She's from a different story arc than Lua so no muncest issues there. But. Um. This is the oldest-looking image of Eve I can find. I don't think she's deliberately intended to look that childish (the main artist is really bad about characters' appearances matching their ages), but would anyone take this seriously?

Also I can't seem to keep a second character for the life of me, I either can't keep up with them or I lose interest :(

Who Are You?: Amanda
Character Name: Dana Scully
Series: The X-Files
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: YUP
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active as hell
Why do you want them?: I RPed Scully for years once upon a time. She's actually the first live-action character I ever played. Her voice comes very easily to me and I think she could bring a really interesting dynamic to the Barge.
Potential Concerns: AHAHA, basically I only have ONE concern: her skepticism.

I'd be bringing Scully in from some point in season 5 (before the series became ri-goddamn-diculous), and at that point, she's still gung-ho about needing hard science before she'll support anything (Catholicism aside). So if she, say, accepts a deal to rehabilitate someone (in exchange for information) from an average gentleman one day, someone she might simply assume is part of the Syndicate (they all go by titles, so "Admiral" wouldn't seem odd) and then gets brought aboard the Barge...well.

Let me make a partial list of things she repudiates, as they'd apply here.

- Aliens
- Vampires
- Werewolves or any kind of shapeshifter
- Time travel or any other kind of time manipulation
- Parallel worlds
- Raising people from the dead

THIS IS JUST SCRATCHING THE SURFACE.

Basically, if she arrived and was faced with all this, she would demand hard proof. As an example, she'd go seeking blood samples or similar "evidence" from the nonhuman inhabitants. As for floods? If there was no concrete evidence of a cause she'd go with mass hallucinations or hysteria, at least to start out.

I know how to write Scully; I don't know how to write Scully on the Barge. Help?

Having had other sciencey types here before, or ones who were all LOGIC RULES ALL - Capa, Rex, and possibly Bruce come to mind - I think her type isn't too uncommon. Personally, I'd love someone being all disbelieving of everything just for the amusement factor. Course, I'm biased, playing a bratty vamp. :)

Come to think of it, the infirmary would have files on all the nonhumans she could study. At least, I think so? Which could be a fun mini plot of PRIVACY ISSUES, SCULLY, THEY *MATTER*.

... Don't mind me, I've had coffee :)

Who Are You?: Binky
Character Name: Lore
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Warden or Inmate: Inmate like whoa
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Pretty much
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Very active
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Oh yeah
Why do you want them?: I enjoyed playing him before.
Potential Concerns: a.) He was in disguise for ten months before. He successfully hid his identity except to his allies in the other game I was in. He would probably pretend to be Data until he got to be paired, but I don't yet know how I'd handle him being found out.

b.) As an android, while I'd like to dock his speed, I'd wonder if I could keep his strength. There are plenty of individuals on the Barge that, even though he's an android, would be able to restrain him. Not that I can't dock his strength by putting limiters on it (his limbs stall after so much pressure is exerted).

c.) I want a mad scientist type of character, but I'm wondering how useful that would be on the Barge at this point.

Who Are You?: Cap
Character Name: Thrawn
Series: Star Wars
Warden or Inmate: Inmate
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes

Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Undoubtedly

Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active, as Thrawn said once, he has the gift of curiosity.

Why do you want them?:

I enjoy the complexities and interests Thrawn has. He's ruthless, but polite, intelligent and confident, but doesn't let his ego get in the way, and has no problems admitting defeat or accepting ideas that aren't his.

Potential Concerns: Thrawn is... generally... not such a bad guy despite the fact that he had an officer executed on his bridge and sort of continued the deception/enslavement of an entire species, and nearly destroyed the New Republic.

Everything he did was because he knew a group of invaders from another galaxy were preparing to invade, and the New Republic was basically formed by a bunch of rebels that overthrew the previously harsh, though legally established, regime while he was off establishing an Empire of his own. He looks away for five years and the Empire gets knocked over by a farm kid.

Although you can definitely see a huge difference between the person he was before he was exiled, and the ruthless warlord he is by the time he dies.

Essentially... I'm worried he's not inmate-y enough.
acid_rayne: (Default)

[personal profile] acid_rayne 2012-03-21 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, please.

You're right about the status, though! From what I have read, He wasn't really motivated by cruelty so much as efficiency. Then again, perhaps you could say that his ethical flaw was in not ridding the Empire of its less... Morally upstanding practices, when he had the chance?

Who Are You?: Ros
Character Name: Greg Jenko. Or Brad, that works, too.
Series: 21 Jump Street, THE MOVIE REBOOT
Warden or Inmate: Warden
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes, come May app period.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: haha yes
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active
Why do you want them?: IDK I'm a monster I guess.

No, I just miss playing comedy characters, and this is a good game where the serious and the silly are nicely balanced. And he's kind of dumb but has a lot of heart, so, gotta love the slightly inept warden type. He has a lot of that appeal to me. Also: new character. This is like the first time I've been struck by a brand new muse in a year, so I want to clutch him tightly to my bosom.

And the upside to this comedy character is that he's a comedy character who can actually handle the Barge. He comes from a slightly absurd world-- you know, one where he actually passes for 18-- but he's a trained police officer, so he won't be crushed and die within seconds.

Potential Concerns: Is he really that interesting outside of the situational context of canon? If I take him out of having to pretend to be a high school student, where does the humor come from? I mean, he's supposed to be so deep undercover that nobody knows he's a cop, so he COULD always continue to pretend to be a student here, but is that feasible?

Catherine suggested that he try to pretend to be an inmate to get close to them and figure out their schemes, WHICH I THINK WOULD BE AMAZING, BUT I STILL AM NOT SURE HE'D DO IT.

So tell me your thoughts on a dudebro comedy movie.

I wish I made Tim take me to the Drafthouse to see this yesterday D: I HAVE NOT SEEN IT YET but from the trailers and such I think the pretending to be an inmate idea could be really, really interesting. That doesn't usually come up, and it's so often an inmate pretending to be a warden that it would be a really interesting spin. How would he handle having his cover blown when he's assigned an inmate?

Who Are You?: Kabby (Sokka!Mun)
Character Name: ...The Once-ler
Series: Um. The Lorax. 2012.
Warden or Inmate: Inmate
Do they meet all rules and requirements?: Yes'm, or they should by the next app cycle.
Do you think they will be active and interact with others?: Yes'm.
Would this character be active in ports and floods, or sit out?: Active.
Why do you want them?: I really enjoy the character! And not the way the creepy fanbase does... I find him interesting and I... Actually really like the take the movie did on the Once-ler, as an excellent example of someone who goes from well-meaning to a mess and back again. Obviously, I'd take him before the 'back again', but since he does canonly see the error of his ways, I think he's a good first inmate because he won't be stuck without development. That would drive me nuts.
Potential Concerns:
Well, FIRST OFF, let's see me get more active with Sokka before next app cycle, eh? I realize this is really important, and I can really attribute my current lack of speediness to still being nervous about the first impressions I'm making, so that should clear away soon.

But moving on... Concerns... Oh, well, to name a few...

OKAY NOBODY WANTED THIS MOVIE; Once-ler has developed a kind of unsettling fanbase; he's from a kids' movie. So I feel like he'll be side-eyed hard.

I'm not concerned about him going through rough, dark stuff? I think it will just lead to interesting development, but I honestly don't think the Barge will break him or make him an unrecognizable character. (And I can guard him, so to speak, when I feel it's needed.)

Honestly, my biggest concern is that I'm not sure how to work in a nice little death.

Not going to lie, this is something I'm pretty stubbornly set on doing, but I'm totally willing to listen to concerns. It'll be hard to sway me off the idea, but bringing up potential issues will help me think ahead on how to handle things.

Ans, you know, positive feedback is cool, too.

Bear in mind that his app can't go up until after the 2nd, since the Lorax was released March 2.

Other than that? o.O I don't know the movie, but as far as him being from a kid's movie? This is me posting with a Disney character. You'll be okay. If it comes together, I'm sure you'll be fine. :3
