Do my characters cry?

For the sake of argument, I'm just going to talk about my TLV cast because holy shit, I have a lot of journals and I honestly don't spend much time wondering if Gwaine cries. Generally speaking, none of my characters are burst into tears at every available opportunity characters, and when they do get choked up or actually cry, it's a pretty rare thing, because everyone but Trip is a really emotionally weird person and even then, guys are encouraged not to cry or otherwise show weakness by our society/the society of the canon material, so it really isn't something that's going to happen often.

But they do, for the most part, all cry. :v

Memememememe, guess who's bored in Oregon

Pick 20 movies/tv shows/cartoons/video games/literary works/webcomics etc. and put their summaries from Better Than It Sounds and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

1. This was described in some TV listings which took brevity too far: "A farmboy seeks his destiny."

2. Washed-up actors discover that people they never expected to meet love their work a bit too much IN SPACE!

3. Police fail to catch a serial killer.

4. Reject from the Disney Animated Canon, featuring wacko suburbanite and his son on a crazy Road Trip, culminating in the two of them ending up on stage at a concert by a performer who appears to be a cross between Prince and 1980s-era Michael Jackson.

5. Back To The Future in a star ship. And with whales.

14. 8 people fall asleep in the first class cabin of a plane.

15. A widowed man tries to redeem a corrupt organization, but his father won't have it; meanwhile, his brother is breaking his heart and his sister is having marital problems. It's a comedy, with a heaping helping of Large Ham.

Another Meme. >>

Choose twelve characters, in any particular order. Then, answer the questions that follow, but DON'T LOOK AT THE QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU PICK THE CHARACTERS!

1. Jim Hawkins
2. Marlin
3. John Smith
4. Jane Porter
5. Milo Thatch
6. Lightning McQueen
7. Violet Parr
8. Simba
9. Wilbur Robinson
10. Max Goof
11. Wendy Darling
12. Aladdin

1. Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11?
Is this even a question? ;|

2. Do you think #2 is hot? How hot?
Oh yes. Clownfish are super attractive.

3. 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?
If we're talking cub!Simba, probably not, considering he's all immature and easily distracted, but adult!Simba is a little more focused on getting things done so basically, it's up in the air. What Al is asking him to do? Goooooood question. Probably something of dubious legality, but harmless enough. I doubt he'd be on purpose trying to get someone in trouble at this point.

4. What is or would be 9's favorite book?
Definitely a spy novel. Maybe a Robert Ludlum.

5. Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?

In this crack duo, Marlin would swear to fealty to Lightning, considering he's all super devoted to everyone in his life and Mr. v. famous race car is... less devoted on first glance.

6. For whatever reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should 5 share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?
Wilburrrrr. He'd be way neater then Mr. Slob Goof, and considering Milo's definitely a typical messy genius, he'd die under an avalanche of stuff if his roomie was messy too.

7. 2, 7, and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?
In all likelihood, Al enthusiastically drags them out to some crazy ethnic restaurant with super spicy food, Marlin whines about the decision but ends up going anyway and refuses to try anything he hasn't eaten before (which basically limits his food options to water) and Violet probably fiddles around with her food for a while before getting up the guts to try it. Al definitely carries all most of the conversation, which is probably pretty awkward because Vi isn't a chatty person and Marlin is cranky.

8. 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?

Max surrenders. Immediately.

9. If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would 8 get it back?
He would eat him. Ask politely for it back.

10. Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.
"Getting the Princess and Feeling Normal." Which sounds weird and semi dirty, but I'm tired, so.

11. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?
Bonding over literature, in all likelihood. Since they're both characters originally from books, I've always imagined they would both enjoy a good book, and Jim's open enough to chatting with people if they aren't all judgmental, which Jane certainly is not, so in general, common bond = working together.

12. If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?

13. If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?
Be my best friend. Seriously. Childhood dream right thar.

14. Does anyone on your friends list write or draw anything regarding 11?

... Maybe?

15. If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?
Oh god, two incredibly chatty people and Marlin. Um. Jane. Because she likes animals.

16. What might 10 shout while charging into battle?
"EFF MY LIFEEEEE" -> Max is not a fighter.

17. If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?
"Carry on My Wayward Son"

18. 1, 6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?
Lightning, because he's super fast. Obv.

19. What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?
"No. Just no. Gwen, gtfo and stop filling out this meme."

20. What would 5 most likely be arrested for?
Talking too much.

21. What is 6's secret?
He is lonely. ;;

22. If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
Lightning McQueen. idc that he isn't 11 or 9.

Wilbur. He's got a time machine.

23. If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?
Violet is a super hero, and Simba is a dangerous predator. I'm good. I'm good.

24. 1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?
Jim and Wilbur team up against Jane. Wendy's the spy. Aladdin is kidnapped, and Milo tells them to find John = Crackiest Fic Ever.

Hey, I never said I was good with titles. ;|

RP Character Meme

Step 1: List 10 of your characters.
Step 2: Answer these questions!

1. Ephram Brown - Everwood
2. Lightning McQueen - Cars
3. Marlin - Finding Nemo
4. Bolt - Bolt
5. Jim Hawkins - Treasure Planet
6. John Smith - Pocahontas
7. Philip J. Fry - Futurama
8. Chip - Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
9. Adrian - Gender-swapped Ariadne of Inception
10. Andddd Guy Fleegman of Galaxy Quest, once I bother to make the journal.

We're going with just character names/canon universes versus their RP ones for the sake of everyone reading this's sanity.

Four invites Three and Eight to dinner at their house. What happens?

Oh god. Bolt probably ordered take out and while Chip is cool with that, Marlin definitely finds SOMETHING to complain about and gets everyone into a rather annoyed/awkward mood and therefore semi ruins dinner. Then, feeling apologetic, he'll try and cornily make it up to them, and because the other two are boring  hero characters, they'll forgive him and the evening will basically be boring and uneventful apart from that.

Nine tries to get Five to go to a strip club. How?

Nine wouldn't do that in the interest of not getting in trouble with the law, as Jim is only 15. ;|

You need to stay at a friend's house for the night. Who do you choose, One or Six?

OH GOD HARD CHOICE D: Although considering John probably usually lives in a tent, I guess I'd go with Ephram in the interest of being in a nice house. The Brown's have a really nice house.

Three falls in love with Six, Eight is jealous. What happens?

... My brain just exploded.

But I digress.

If Chip even noticed, because I sincerely doubt Marlin would be shouting it from the rooftops, he would definitely start competing with John for Marlin's affections (ohdeargodmybrainisnowoozingoutofmyears), which would pretty much be a failure in that John would be totally oblivious to the entire situation, but Chip would still try very, very hard to make Marlin realize how AWESOME he is compared to that idiot John. So massive fails all around.

Four jumps you in a dark alleyway. Who comes to your rescue, Ten, Two or Seven?

... Oh dear god. Out of all of those? Probably Guy or Fry, which would just be an all around fail in that Fry is an incompetent moron and Pre-Movie Guy would just flip out. Lightning would just lol and drive/walk away or freak out and run/speed off, so nothing there. But yeah, here thar be fail.

Unless it was nearing-the-end movie Guy, who would go all Rambo on Bolt's ass, and in general delusional, overdramatic fighting would ensue for sure.

One decides to start a cooking show. Fifteen minutes later, what is happening?

Everything's running smoothly. Ephram creates the perfect Thanksgiving dinner in an episode, so he could probably handle a cooking show for a few episodes.

Three has to marry either Eight, Four or Nine. Whom do they choose?

Suicide Ummmmmm... I guess Adrian has the least offensive personality, so. We'll go with that.

Seven kidnaps Two and demands something from Five for Two's release. What is it?

An audience with Captain Kirk. Or idk, maybe to pal around with B.E.N. and Doppler and stuff. Maybe his own solar surfer.

Everyone gangs up on Three, does Three have a chance in hell?

Noooooope. :|

Everyone is invited to Two and Ten's wedding, except for Eight. How do they react?

....holy hell Lightning and Guy. Um.

Chip would be super offended, maybe throw a temper tantrum and then maybe show up anyway. He's very mature.

Why is Six afraid of Seven?

Because Fry's an idiot.

One arrives late for Two and Ten's wedding. What happens and why were they late?

He was off ANGSTING about how much he hates Colorado. Or fighting with his dad. Or just putting off getting there because who seriously wants to be at the wedding of Lightning McQueen and Guy Fleegman? Not me, that's for sure.

Five and Nine get roaring drunk and end up in your house. What happens?

Holy god. I'm pretty sure Adrian would not enjoy the outcome of that situation, in that WHY ARE YOU GETTING THE 15 YEAR OLD DRUNK AND APPARENTLY TAKING HIM TO STRIP CLUBS YOU ARE A BAD ROLEMODEL/INFLUENCE >:[ lectures would ensue. And in general he'd be bitched the hell out.

Nine murders Two's best friend. What does Two do to get back at them?

Run him over. Seriously.

...Adrian is not coming out well in this meme. :|

Six and One are in mortal danger, only one of them can survive. Does Six save herself or One?

LOLOLOLOL hurm, I don't know, this is a hard question. ;|

Two and Three go camping. For some reason they forget to bring any food. What do they do?

Bitch, point fingers, whine, and then give up and go home.


First entry wooooooooo.
