This is going up rather late, for which I apologize; just got off a flight. I almost did a travel question, this one occurred to me instead.

Does your character visit their family--whether genetic, formally adopted, informally adopted/just chosen and assembled like half our large-cast-protagonist stories are--often? (If they live with their family, assume holidays/important celebrations at or with visiting family.) How do those visits go, what are they like? Does your character enjoy them?

And for those characters who don't have family, do they wish they did or are they relieved to be spared the... let's call them 'complications' that can go with it?

[personal profile] sasha_honeypalm's musical tribute to Barbara G. Walker's (professionally published!) novel
Amazon:


Don't know much about history
Don't know much about theology
Don't know much 'bout how to write a book
Don't know how to cite the quotes I took
But I know all that I say must be true
And I know if you believed it, too
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography
Don't know much sociology
Don't know how to understand folklore
Don't know what a reference book is for
But I do know that one god is bad
And if we'd kept the goddess we once had
What a wonderful world this would be

Now, I don't claim to be a goddess
But I'm tryin' to be
For maybe if I'm a goddess, people
You'll all worship me.

Don't know much about history
Don't know much about technology
Don't know much...


[personal profile] rosepsyche's paean to the Power of Story is also quoteworthy:

I have to call "bull" on Antiope's reasoning that art and music are inferior because they are "not alive" for another reason. No, such creations aren't living, breathing things. However (and I apologize if this gets a bit corny), the best of them can seem as if they are alive, get us invested in their characters, have us cheering about their triumphs and crying over their tragedies. They are just as valuable in their own way for their ability to entertain, to inspire, to teach, to help us grow and develop by seeing the world from a new point of view, and I don't think anyone involved in creating them would appreciate being told that their work can never compare to something that was squeezed out of a vagina.

Happy Saturday, y'all! I've been listening to the Avett Brothers a ridiculous amount the past few days, so this comes courtesy of "The Weight of Lies":
→ Name one thing your characters have lied to themselves about, and explain why.

Oh shit, it's Friday isn't it? Well, I have no ideas so I'm pulling from the Suggestion Box. Today I'm using one from a comment of [personal profile] childofrebellion 's, which has a whole bunch of great ideas:

How physical in their everyday life is your character. Are they a hugger, do they like to lean on people?

Your character has been suddenly placed in charge of developing and running a restaurant. What kind of food is it, what’s the ambiance?

I love all the glittersnot posts, Milliways' diseases always go in fascinating ways.

Yrael with glitter in cat form is adorable and hilarious.

Milliways finds a way to make things worse for Baze and Chirrut.

Bonnie tries to help out everyone who's sick.

Now what have you finished and are you following?

PSA re: Cassidy

[personal profile] irish_vagabond posting in [community profile] ways_back_room
If Cassidy has spoken to your pup and told them that he's a vampire but doesn't have fangs, he lied. This is what happens when you play someone from ongoing canon! Details get changed along the way. And it's annoying! But at least lying about it is still within character. My headcanon now is that he casually lied about it because he doesn't want to be seen as a stereotypical vampire, and possibly didn't want to scare anyone away or freak anyone out. So he'll continue to lie about it. I think his fangs only come out with true bloodlust or the desire to turn someone, neither of which he really feels at this point in canon. He's learned to suppress those urges.

Anyway, jsyk. Carry on.

It's definitely autumn here now, so how does your charrie like that season. If it doesn't exist in their world, why not?

Something has disrupted your character's routine whether expected or not. Could be vacation, could be forgetting pills one day, could be a car malfunction, whatever. How swiftly do they recalibrate, and do they have any particular tricks for it?

It seems that Starbucks is offering sandwiches with Cage Free Egg Whites. Personally, I never keep my egg whites in cages. Usually keeping them in their shells works just fine.

Context is free-range.

 How lucky is your character?  And what type of luck do they have? Do they win every giveaway they enter? Or does it show up when they really need it, that last minute save kind of thing?

[personal profile] rydra_wong posting in [community profile] metaquotes
Everyone was nice to me, but I found it hard to participate in some of the conversations because everyone else there was fluent in Gearhead and I just don't care. It was all

One dude: "How do you like that model BLQ45Z?"
Other dude: "It's got pretty good flang, but the chimping bleederweep doesn't zerbert as well as I like in the corners."
First dude: "I heard that floppykush helps with the zerberting, tried that?"
Third dude: "My next squelch is gonna be a floppykush! Used to have a panpan bleederweep, but you know what they say about those oilsquirms!"
All dudes: [nod sagely and then argue]


Context is locked; QWP.
