My characters are not me, I am not my characters.
They're just holding me hostage.

"For the delectation of his mind and the delight of his eyes, he had decided to seek out evocative works which would transport him to some unfamiliar world, point the way to new possibilities, and shake up his nervous system by means of erudite fantasies, complicated nightmares, suave and sinister visions."

IE: the medieval guy is a mellow dad while his sci-fi self is a vinegar bastard, whose lack of a redemption arc with friends and family has made him mean as sin over time. Regardless of genre, the core concept remains the same: monster on the outside, something weird yet not necessarily awful on the inside. I love writing this character, because he has been with me the longest, so he's extremely easy to immerse myself in. I've always tried to play him with an emphasis on who he is as a person, rather than focusing on the fact that he is a vampire, but lately I'm wild about acknowledging his monster more. ....
VAMPIRE • LAWFUL NEUTRAL • MAIN OC ♔| Fantasy, Victorian, Modern, Post Apocalypse, Sci-Fi |
• Mentor, as a primary purpose or as a side to plot
• Ship captain transporting people/goods; merchantry
• A Monster: what that means depends on your character
Vastly flexible, though setting will influence flavor.
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

Lib is not only a wonderful writer with a vivid imagination, beautiful sense of humor, unique characters, vibrant ideas, but they are also one of the kindest, most understanding people I know.

Have you ever seen a faun trying not to be a faun and run a business professionally and legitimately instead? Neither have I...until I started writing with Andy! Lib does such an amazing job of writing out the little nuances of the character going against his very nature that it makes for amazing reading and responding. I'm always really excited and eager for the next post so I can see what antics Andy is going to be up to, aside from driving my character crazy! Wonderful writer Drives the plot forward - MissPixie
