series: Tales of the Abyss
tagging priority: ■■■■■: Ion tags always get first priority. Newer tags tend to get done over backtags. I've been trying to avoid dropping any tags with him and so far I think I've been doing really well!
muse strength: ■■■■■: I am so proud of myself that I feel confident enough to list this as full now. I feel like I've achieved true RP nirvana with him or something.
cast strength: ■■■■□: BEST CAST EVER OR BEST CAST EVER? There are a few people I'd really like him to work on getting closer to, still, but that's about it.
plotting capabilities: ■■■■■: SO MANY IDEAS OH MAN. A lot of them deal with his personal relationships with other characters, which I love because those are my favorite kinds of plots and threads.
general fun level: ■■■■□: I love my bby so much. Once in a blue moon I get a thread that isn't working so well, but for the most part I am jumping for the opportunity to throw him somewhere.
likelihood of drop: □□□□□: BBY YOU'RE MY FOREVER GIRL.
I think my only concern with Ion is that I'm being too mean to him. It's not so much what I'm doing with him as it is how he's handling things, and it's not well. |D And while on one hand I don't see things getting too much better for him with a potential Original and Arietta coming in, with a potential Florian? I can actually see that doing him a lot of good. A fellow Ion replica who survived and has a happy life? AMAZING. Plus, it's another replibro. :'D
I'd like to do more silly things with him, like replica shenanigans and the like. Someday soon he will piss Sync off by pointing out that he's now taller than him. And they'll probably end up kidnapped together since me and Shannon will be hiatus'd for part of the same time in March.
And on a last note, I'm actually kinda like :'D over the fact that the month that we get a billion castmates is also the month I'll be really busy and then completely gone for awhile BUT I CAN'T COMPLAIN BECAUSE I AM SO EXCITED FOR CAST EXPLOSION. Seriously, I have been dreaming of having all four greenhaired kids and both lolis in Luceti ever since I started playing this kid.
tagging priority: ■□□□□: ...eheh. Been kind of just sitting on her tags, really.
muse strength: ■■■■■: I seriously never have issues with her voice. Of all my OCs, hers is probably the strongest by now.
cast strength: □□□□□: No cast.
plotting capabilities: ■■□□□: I know the capabilities are there, but that involves actually acting on them...
general fun level: □□□□□: /deadcat.gif
likelihood of drop: ■■■■□: The only thing holding me back is knowing that I could still post enough to keep her "active" and not worry about squatting since she's an OC. I do love her CR, but I know that wouldn't be doing her justice. I really like focusing on development and relationships with my characters, and you just can't do that with only keeping to the bare minimum. I can't even find the drive to tag with her in threads where I think she'd do well, since I don't want to be forcing threads when the drive just isn't there. If I do drop her, it'd probably be for good this time.
character: Kaname Tanuma
series: Natsume Yuujinchou
tagging priority: □□□□□: Not in a game yet. |D
muse strength: ■■■■□: I feel really good about him! He doesn't talk very much, and occassionally I find myself mentally hearing his tags in Japanese first (no really) but that's not really an issue for me.
cast strength: ■■■■□: SO EXCITED TO BE IN A CAST. AND HAVE A CAST. And to be in a game that has a cast! I love this series. ;w; We just need a Taki and it'd be perfect.
plotting capabilities: ■■■□□: I have a few ideas so far, but right now I think most of his will be general CR building. I'm pretty okay with that. |D
general fun level: ■■■■□: Not as much fun to tag with as Ion, but still pretty fun! He's basically just a slightly-less-than-normal Japanese guy, but I think playing a normal person in a setting like Luceti where they can be more than just normal sounds like a lot of fun.
likelihood of app: ■■■■□: I'm admittedly a little wary of apping in a new guy with so many potential Abyss castmates coming in, since I know that'll make me more inclined to focus just on Ion, but Tanuma is pretty low maintenance on top of being fun and easy to tag with. I just need to finish writing his app, really. And the only thing stopping me so far is laziness. |D I know I'll finish it before the cycle ends, but seeing as I probably won't intro until after my hiatus, I'm not too worried about getting it in as soon as they open.
IN SUMMARY: I am still in total flailing happy love-love mode about the Abyss reserves. My drive to play Ion has never been as high as it is now, and I'm actually keeping up with tags pretty well. I really wanna do a post for him before the next app cycle, so right now I'm just kind of looking for an idea.
I'm probably going to be dropping Cheyenne sometime in the next few days. I flaked out on her first post, wasn't really feeling it for the second, and just lost all enthusiasm for the event when it started. And I never got around to making her react to it, which for someone like her? Should have been a really big deal. And the fact that I neglected that for so long just shows how little drive I have to keep playing her. |D
I'm really excited for Tanuma, though! He's kind of a simple guy, but I already love him to pieces. And I am so in love with this series that I shouldn't have to worry about issues like dreading canon reviewing (which I'be gotten with characters in the past). I've got a lot of parts of his app done and the samples are completely done, so it's just wrapping it all together now.
