State of Me

Ugh I am just so tired all the time, it is so hard to stay motivated when all you want to do is sleep.

I did a decent job of cleaning out my inbox earlier today - I've got two tags left to get back to, and one is a Neal tag that's going to take more brain power than I've got right now, so that's going to have to wait.

I am going to be super busy between now and November, as I volunteer with the Obama campaign and have been sucked into a more responsible role, which equals huge time suck. My days post-work are pretty much going to look like this:

Monday: Phone bank / Tuesday: White Collar night / Wednesday: ??! / Thursday: Phone bank / Friday: hipster radio. With Saturdays being taken up by 5ks or hipster radio things or band gigs or something, and Sundays being more phone banking and also band practice.

So, tl;dr I am still here but on a very reduced basis through the beginning of November. If there's something going on with your pups that I should know about, or a post that I should tag into but haven't, please don't think I'm ignoring you, I just might not have seen it. (Or it's been sitting open in a tab for a week and I just never got to it yet.)

Nick Stokes

So I successfully both traumatized poor Nick with a CSI episode (the S12 finale) and with more fearplot unpleasantness, which he is still not connecting to the hallucinations/visions that everyone else is having. Denial is a great place. The CSI episode hit him harder than I thought it would -- the episode was great at creating a very pervasive feeling of dread in the back half -- but it did exactly what I wanted it to do for Nick, which was shake him up, so hopefully this will be good.

Coming up: Helping Karen through Pepper's disappearance, once that becomes in-game knowledge. Need to figure out more concretely how I'm going to do his fearplot and what clues I'll be leaving behind so Karen can go dig him up. (Poor Karen.)

Severus Snape

I sort of fell down on the threads from his island-versary, but really, he's just a big sad sack who hates everything, and nothing's going to change that. He's not doing much at the moment, and I do need to start generating some plot for him other than sitting around and being a bastard. Maybe I can put him in mortal peril on Halloween, just for funtimes.

Coming up: Sirius being gone, once that becomes in-game knowledge. He's going to pretend not to care, and will probably snark meanly about Sirius when given the chance, he will still be unhappy about it, as just another instance of the island Doing What It Wants, etc.

Neal Caffrey

Neal's keeping busy, which is the first step to keeping Neal out of trouble. (It's also the first step for Neal for getting into trouble. Sorry, Peter.) On top of everything else he does, he's got a regular gig tending bar at the jazz club at the Catscratch, which he enjoys because it's a lot of people watching and getting to worm little details out of people. He's working on painting a mural of New York in his hut. He's got an in-progress thing with Kate Freelander going, which is both steamy and delightful to me, because of course Neal can never pick just an average person to get into it with. Of course not. I don't know where that's going to go, but there are certainly no complaints from Neal.

Coming up: Nothing in particular planned. A conversation with Peter made him think seriously about offering his artwork to islanders -- whether it be certified copies of master works or Neal Caffrey originals. He needs materials to do that -- canvases, good paints, etc. -- so it would have to wait until either NDPD or I figure out a way to handwave Neal having supplies. I might finally EP him later this month in the art museum, if I have time. I'm also thinking about putting him in peril on Halloween, because Neal needs a good adrenaline rush, but I'd also love for him to be in a situation where he gets his hands on a gun and has to shoot something. He'd hate it but he is such a secret badass and after he spent so much time telling people that he's not violent or dangerous, I'd love for that to come back to haunt him.

Maddie Brodatt

I kind of fell down with Maddie this month and feel bad that I haven't integrated her better on the island. I can already tell she's a voice where I'm going to need to just flip through the book before doing a lot of her tags, if I really want to feel authentic. Fortunately, the book's got a permanent home on my desk, covered in little post-it tabs for easy reference. She's very easy to tag around, as she's so cheerful and curious about everything, so I really just need to put forth more effort on my part to get her to know people.

Coming up: No concrete plans. Probably making more of an effort to tag her around in gathering posts to get to know people. I will need plot for her eventually, once she gets tired of just people-meeting. She's got the hover-bulance thing coming up, once that's in-game, which will thrill her to no end, even if it's not really flying, for the most part.

That picture you're using for Maddie is amazing. :D

I still heart Maddie!

And at some point after Marie and Daniel have their 'Marie is incapable of stable relationships' talk she and Severus should totally make bad drunken decisions. I don't know why i think this is a good idea (okay, I don't actually, I just think it's funny) but still. ;)

I have a thought on guns and Neal and Kate. I'll email you about it. :)
