I keep having dreams about men who are ostensibly official repair.workmen coming to my private residence while I'm asleep and ogling me naked. This is really starting to creep me out, because it's such a realistic scenario and one that would occur while I'm asleep... and I keep dreaming it, so then I wake up feeling shaky and violated in my own bed. I don't know what's wrong with me.

In other news, things are fine except that I am currently obsessed with Steam Powered Giraffe and it is devouring my waking thoughts and making RP hard. I don't usually get obsessed with fandoms this badly, so I don't know what my problem is. I want to make an RP journal for the Spine and play him, but I've hard there are some weird bot RPers out there...

but then, they are all weird. Everybody is weird except The Spine and Steve. [x]

Oh god, help me.

This is kind of an RP status update. Conditions are subject to change, but since I'm getting back into RP and trying to reconnect with people it makes sense to post this here. Please alert me if I've missed anybody you want to know about.

If you don't know where to find me RPing after this, then you're very lost. In any case, feel free to contact me, as always.

Okay kiddies, doing this here to keep it all central or something, and because I know most of my RP buddies also read this journal. Post what and who and I'll write a little thingie. Ficlet? Aren't drabbles technically 100 words? I'm not that exacting. Active (as much as any of my RP chars are active these days) pups are [ profile] dirk__gently, [ profile] maylookatkings, [ profile] call_me_rat, [ profile] greyedwhite, [ profile] thrasherpunk, and intermittently [ profile] agoodfellow and [ profile] flyhighthing. If that's not enough characters for you, I'm scared, but ask for somebody off the record or something and I can probably accommodate.

I've never had anything featured like this before! Obviously I need to crank out the steampunk stuff, between the jackrabbit, and the steampunk gargs is my most popular piece... Just wow. Well that's my ego boost for the month.

Weeell, there's white stuff on the ground, but it isn't snow. I'm not looking forward to scraping the ice off the car later. The sleet or whatever is still coming down pretty steadily.
Snow or not, Happy Birthday to [ profile] morrbiddus! I will do Arlen fanart, I swear.
The holdup is I've been frantically illustrating this thing for [ profile] courtneycrumrin and [ profile] evillurks which I am going to plug here because I can. Fisher will show up at one point later on, but I'll admit I'm mostly plugging it because art! It's not my best work, I'm tearing through a drawing and a half a day, although I fell behind on the weekend. Alternating between the style of Edd Cartier and Ted Naifeh, although I feel like the Naifeh style ones are both harder and turn out better. It's all hard edged, and I have to think seriously about negative space and making the black figures show up against the black thing with all the black. In the charcoal Cartier-style ones I can blur edges and use greytones and all so it's easier.

This is a listing of my current major RP chars. I have been RPing since High School, although I had a plethora of characters for my own story ideas ever since I can remember. This is virtually guaranteed to be tl;dr.

Okay, so as I type this I'm waiting for DA to get it's act together and upload the fricken' picture already. What the hell. I've been trying to upload one picture for half an hour. My connection speed is normal. Want to kill DA... After pushing and pushing and pushing to try and get this art finished so I could post it, now I can't...
*gnaws the walls*

In lieu of art, I give you RP meme. Maybe shit will upload once I post this...
1) Make a list of 10 characters.
2) Assign each character a number.
3) Without telling anyone who's on the list or the character's assigned number, get questions from your flist about what they'd like to know about them. (IE: "If 3 and 4 were trapped in a cave together with only a blanket and a toothpick, what would they do?" (The more random the better!)
4) Post the answers and who was who on the list.

I made a list, and was horrified to realize I have a total of eight online RP journals. Active ones. Admittedly some more active than others... tacked on two characters I've babbled about on here to round out the list.

First on my mind: New Zealand, WTF??

I worked all weekend, RPed in the evenings. I think it was Saturday night I tried to pay for Dirk's LJ so I could get my icons back, only to have my card rejected. By this time there was no one at the bank, and Bridgie paid for it as a kind of birthday gift, so that was nice. I should have harrassed the bank first chance I got, which would have been Monday, when the car went in for State inspection. Yeah, that made the day a little hectic, but I could have walked to the bank instead of RPing half the day. Sooo... Today I went to buy my lunch, only to have my card rejected at the supermarket. The bank has a branch right there, which the lovely floor manager walked me over to with a ticket for the suspended sale, being all friendly but I'm sure trying to be sure I wouldn't run out with my unpaid-for lunch.
The bank people need PR training. When you have to call up some higher office because someone's debit card has stopped working, despite their having funds available, do not sit there with your eyes going wide and gasping while said someone stands there mentally going 'what? What?!?!?'
She lowers the mouthpiece, and asks me if I've been to New Zealand recently. Like... Saturday. Yeeeah. While I was at work, my debit card apparently showed up in New Zealand and tried to withdraw cash. Funtimes. I think I'm closing my paypal account. I now have no debit card for 7-10 business days and need to reset my pin.

Been swallowed by RP the past couple days, when I'm not working, which is nice. Tour de Quilt is this week, which means work is insane with getting ready for it. Tour de Quilt is this thing where quilters swarm to the area and from Thursday-Sunday attempt to visit ten different quilt shops (with a lot of driving between them), collect lots of door prizes and goody bags and exclusive fabric offered only those days. RP is a nice break to come home to. My posts for both Dirk and Whitey got what is, for me, a lot of response. I'm thrilled. I've had Dirk around for a damn long time and seemed to have trouble finding anyone who'd play with him. I am an RP slut, getting characters on LJ and finding no one will RP with them except my own household is... hard. I adore RP with family, but I don't need LJ for that. I'd still like my characters to get actual friends. Dirk has two, Hips and Mel, who are great, but he has yet to get involved in any kind of plot after over a year. Maybe Whitey will do better? Note to self, Whitey has a name now, thanks to a kind Nexusite.

Been a little more productive on the drawing front, Nothing finished to show but I've been sketching. Finally did some pretty decent sketchwork of the Labyrinthesque raven king dude that's been in my head for years. Also got the sketch for the fanart pic of Magneto out... It needs some tightening compositionally and I need to make sure both hims look like him, but... I searched Magneto on DA not too long after I uploaded, because he was on my brain... and the sketch had soared in popularity to the first page.
It's just a sketch, and... yeah. I don't know. People must've been viewing off the recent uploads page. I can't believe it. Bridgie says it's a disturbing picture, which I guess is good in a way. Funny thing is it still has no comments.
reymonkey: (Meatballs of Doom)
I found this really... fascinating. I am pretty far from genius, and it amazes me that I can play Dirk at all, and even more that people seem to feel I play him well. The dialogue is my ideas filtered through excessive thesaurus use. There have been times I pulled out a thesaurus to write for him, but last night wasn't one of them. Go figure. I hope the conversation continues. I have no idea who that other character is.

More DA updating, nothing too exciting but it looks better on the main page than all that older crap I had up. I put up a collage for the Baobab puppet show, which I meant to do a long time ago. There's also a couple photo of the puppet, Journey, who I worked on a lot during the puppet show commute. The puppet show was all of three months in the spring, and people at work (customers, not coworkers) are still asking me if it's still going on. Also put up the shop sample Cityscape that I was working on last night while playing in the Dirk thread. See, it all ties in...
reymonkey: (My coffee)
So I have this lengthy project I've started on, which is a massive list of characters to draw fanart of. All of them are characters I've had a distinct fondness for over the years, and I'm trying to cut it down a little and stick to ones that I had an extended interest in.
This all started when I stayed up late one night reading Mozenrath fanfic, which culminated in my doing a nice piece of Mozenrath fanart, and the pretty girl asking if I wanted to play him, just off the record. We've played two different AU games with him and Courtney, and it works surprisingly well. I don't have any plans to play him online, partly because I've read to much fanfic and the way I play him makes allusions to some fanon that... well, there's some ugly stuff out there. Fanon has some explanations about his past with Destane that we just don't need Morri to encounter or hear about. Yeah, no plans to play the Mozenbrat in the nexus, but... it is tempting.
my next finished piece of fanart was of Tyldak from ElfQuest, who I even wrote craptastic fanfic for when I was a kid, and then I played him a little, off the record, and was fascinated with the better perspective I have on him now. The next thing I know, I catch wind of an upcoming ElfQuest RP, involving people I already know are really cool, and now I'm all set up on [ profile] flyhighthing to take part in that. I'm excited, I really am, but need to not neglect poor old [ profile] dirk__gently too much.
Another piece of fanart I started even before the Tyldak one, but am putting off finishing, is of Owen Burnett. I've read lots of Owen fanfic, have an enduring love for Gargoyles (which premiered on my birthday), and once wrote a lengthy fanfic that had a lot about the relationship between Owen and Puck.
Now there's an invocation post on DMOOC, and I'm being encouraged to play him. I'm willing, I'd enjoy it, but geez. If this is gonna happen for every character I do fanart of, I'm screwed...

The memorial service is past and done. I wish I could've gone. That's one of the bad parts about moving away from where you grew up, people you knew die and you hear about it all secondhand, you do your grieving alone, and you never get the closure of any of the rituals like memorial services. It leaves me feeling isolated. This isn't the kind of drawback that occurs to you when you move away.

Escapism is good, of course. We like escapism.
Along those lines, I've been accepted to play Tyldak on an RP comm connected to DM. It's funny because I had been thinking about Tyldak again lately, and even done a little random wacky crossover RP with Bridgie with him a couple weeks ago.
For those not familiar with Tyldak, yes, he's a batelf in a giant furry thong. Perhaps in my RP I will uncover the ancient mysteries of Tyldak, such as 'how the hell does he go to the bathroom in that thing?', 'How does he eat?', and 'why hasn't he gotten frostbite by now?'
But seriously, I do worry about these things, because I'm a freak. I figure he's gotta be eating massive amounts of fruit, possibly in private because eating's awkward with no hands, and have the metabolism of a hummingbird. I've also been sketching him in difficult/awkward poses to figure out how he does basic day to day things Wendy Pini didn't show much, like, say, sitting down. Sleeping. Getting up again. Because really, he's designed for flying and standing around. I like the idea that Winnowill so mercilessly shaped him for that one goal that doing everything else is a little awkward.
I am an escapist freak.

Been meaning to update this, been on the computer, been busy with other things. Cut by topic for probable rambling:

The window )

PotC3 )

C.M.P. )

Right. In other news, there's been some updating on my DA gallery, working on fanart stuff but all this htmling has distracted me from working on the photoshop pic of doom I keep meaning to finish.

Not an official WTF, but a week or so ago I had a dream about Mr. Vandemar. Yeah, of Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar, and you should all go read/see Neverwhere if you haven't.
Anyway, I dreamed that Mr. Vandemar started to like this chick out of a group they had held captive for whatever reason, and in the end he turned on and incapacitated Mr. Croup (I doubt killed is the right word), and released the captives. The chick he liked didn't exactly return the feeling and was a little put off by this hulking, uncommunicative brute, but grateful.
Yeah, he still ate rats and pigeons and stuff. Interesting dream, but weird.

Now off to work, while all you bastards enjoy your Saturday.

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon.

...I guess this includes characters I RP off LJ, but how many people know about those? On LJ I currently have going:
[ profile] dirk__gently whose canon is mostly written for me...
[ profile] t_coleburn
[ profile] librarykeeper
[ profile] maylookatkings
[ profile] call_me_rat
I think that's it... off to make other householders post this wackyness.
reymonkey: (Meatballs of Doom)
Had a few days off and sketched like a maniac. The muse has been giving me insomnia and I've done more sketching in the past three days than I have in the past three months put together. I'm not complaining mind you, not at all, but the inspiration's coming so hard and fast that focusing on anything else is tricky. It's at least settled down enough that I'm on a nice detailed piece of fanart now.

In other news, yesterday was a nice sunny beautiful day, the landscaping people mowing the lawn and me hunting down my sunglasses to go in to work... when the lawnmower must've hit a rock which flew through our kitchen window. Lucky thing nobody was in the kitchen when this happened. Now we've got an irregular fist-sized hole in the window and I'm still picking glass out of the sink. No telling how long it'll take the apartment people to come fix it. We still have a crack in the front windowpane that's been there since we first moved in. It's in the initial inspection thingy with a note that it will be fixed soon, and that was years ago now, but this is a little more serious.
Grrr blargh. Damn landscapers.

In other other news, I lied about [ profile] t_coleburn being a dead journal. I've been wavering since I knew it would be easy to bring him back into RP by saying he'd been locked up after the trial, and I finally gave in. He's such an old familiar character that he's easier to play then Dirk, and he's been recieved pretty well. I'm pleased. I even did a quick drawing that turned out well to give him a new icon. This doesn't mean I'm dropping Dirk or anything, but with the puppet show over I think I can handle taking on more characters. I've pretty much had the keyboard to myself for the past few days in honor of my vacation status. So, Dirk's on the hunt for the missing Hippolyta, T.C,'s got some job assignments that get him involved in RP, and I need to make a post with the Librarian because the Laby comm looks too damn quiet.
reymonkey: (Kermy spaz)
1. On your Livejournal, list in order from most recent, any character you have roleplayed as in the last two months. (if your memory is hazy then just list randomly.)
2. Include the game you played them in and when you last played them.
3. People can then comment asking one question general enough for anyone to answer it.
4. You then reply with the answers each character listed would give.
5. People can ask multiple questions if they wish.
6. No giving away characters deep dark secrets. These are answers your characters would give. They could lie if put on the spot.

The character list for LJ RP:
The infamous holistic detective [ profile] dirk__gently on Dear Multiverse etc.
Markus Rathbone [ profile] call_me_rat in [ profile] dark__city
Fisher [ profile] maylookatkings around [ profile] courtneycrumrin but eventually in DM
The Librarian [ profile] librarykeeper in the new [ profile] goblin_kingdom

I think that's it. I gave up on D.S. and T.C. online. Posted this about two weeks ago in Dirk's journal but no one noticed or re'd so I thought I'd post here...

I'm not around online much because I'm running on fumes these days. I've been sick consistently since the end of last month, with one thing or another. I'm loving the puppet show but the schedule of that and work is killing me. I have a feeling it wouldn't have quite the same impact if I could just get myself healthy for a couple days. I'm currently fighting a head cold that's lasted a couple weeks, but I've been to the doctor and paid him money so he could tell me it's not a sinus infection and got take some additional over the counter crap. Blargh.
My motivation for RP is out the window because by the time I get home every day I just want to sleep, and that usually doesn't happen so much because there's just other things to be done.

Good things: I'm working on a puppet, a weird little muppet-esque character with wacky hair who will probably be named Journey because he mostly gets worked on during the two-hour ride to the show.
I have thin mints, courtesy of my pretty girl.
Pirated a hard-to-find out-of-print album of Rowlf the Dog from Heidi and Sam. It has 'You & I & George' on it, which is one of the best songs ever.
I am currently coherent and not about to crash. Even if it won't last.

There any other good MP3 player meme's out there?

I am sure there is much WTFery, but I can't think of any right now. I also have photos I could upload but I'm not that with it tonight.
reymonkey: (Just me)
Ooookay. So I did some updating on DA, mostly of older stuff but I'm posting because I want people to see this and give feedback please? I'm out of practice with realistic stuff.
I did a lot of updating with older stuff from Arrka'ar because it appealed to me, and then Bridgie found this piece of fanart on there by somebody we don't know of her major Arraka'aran character... maybe it's a sign.
rambling )
But in other news, Verizon is screwing us over. Obviously I'm on right now, but it's taken me three days to update DA because of a crappy connection. People kept messing around with the phone box out back last week and now our dial tone keeps going in and out and when we do have one the line is staticcy. This means the phone is almost unusable. This also means our connection is slow, takes forever to connect, and then disconnects at random. The weather is fine, we don't owe them money, WTF. We're paying them money for sporadic service. I'm pissed. The insomnia is not helping. I've had the worst insomnia I've had in years this week, getting only a couple hours each night. Bleargh.

I'm gonna end this now because I hate to look back and see myself whinging.
reymonkey: (Meatballs of Doom)
Just a quick note from work to RP type peoples:
Our phone line is officially screwed and we don't know why. This means not only do you have to shout to hear each other over the static, but the modem makes tortured noises for half an hour before getting a consistent dial tone and then we goet zooming connection speeds of about 12.5 kbps

If you're wondering why people from this household are not responding in RP, that's why. Apologies and shouting at the phone company to ensue.
