[[IF YOU ARE JUST HERE FOR RAMBLE ABOUT MY HOMESTUCK RP, PLEASE LOOK DOWN UNTIL YOU SEE MORE OF THIS.]]
I have discovered that I ship far too many things for my own good.
There is no way all of these ships can work out mutually and yet I ship them. I'm not even a "hardcore" shipper and already I am encountering this problem. Apparently 18 characters, 12 of which have 4 separate quadrants of romance, is not good enough, and of my top 10 ships, like half of them conflict with one another. WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY MIND. (Edit:
16. I apparently added two more characters in my 3am stupor as well. Shoot me.) Ugh. That's not really the point of this journal though. I mean, I guess it could be, but really, it's not. How many people even read these things? I bet none. That's okay though - I'm really just doing this for me, after all. Wanting my voice to be heard, I guess, even if it's only strange ramblings at 3 am to a void of nothingness.
I swear that wasn't emo. I am so chipper right now between cake and birch beer you would not BELIEVE.
[[HERE IS TO WHERE YOU'D BE SKIPPING, THANK YOU.]]
I've been working on a roleplay with a friend, by the way. For Homestuck. No canon characters here though - all original. We're going with humans and Earth if only because that's simpler than having to make up a whole world just to play in someone else's, but as far as I know there's no trolls involved. Eight players though - 4 for me to control, and 4 for her. Just for this journal, I am tentatively calling it the generic Altstuck. We're gonna come up with a title during a brainstorm session next week, hopefully. So far mine are pretty cool. I even have lands, titles, and strife specibi picked out for some of them.
Hunter P. - Seer of TruthRita - Rogue of StrifeYet unnamed, overly complicated skill Sylladex - yoyokind Specibus ("CAT'S. CRADLE. BITCHES.")Land of String and ??? - Consorts: Cats
Array Sylladex - axekind Specibus (later able to "slidegrade" or something to pickaxekind)
Land of Ore and Pulse - Consorts: Tunnel Worms
"You type like any normal and sane person would. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so, considering all the crazy shenanigans around you. You brace yourself for the inevitable storm to come."
"U dont like to mess w/ alot of silly xtra text & shit like that. U dont no the meanin of spellcheck, wtf is that evn?"
Nathaniel - Page of Space
Sylladex unknown - Strife Specibus unknown
Land of ??? and Frogs - Consorts: Dragons
"you like to type relaly really fast and so sometimes your words get jumbled but that's okay because people uderstand :D :D you really like smilies and think they should be used more because aren't smilies jsut great?? :) they are so fantastic because they show how you'f realling, get it??? oh wait you mean how you're feeling haha!! you also tend to ramble or so other people tell you but you don't really get it..... :("
Marley - Maid of Patience(??? maybe who the fuck knows)
Sylladex unknown - Strife Specibus unknown
Land of ??? and ??? - Consorts: Unknown
"Your typing style is unknown."
The last two are.. heavily under construction.
A little more about them - Hunter is quiet, most his friend-contact has been online, kind of removed when in the same place physically. Tallest, with dark brown hair, brown eyes. Likes plaid shirts of various tame colors or just open button-up shirts over a white tank with somewhat-loose jeans, usually dark ones, looking a little worn but more like.. SLIGHTLY fading in spots and tattered at the bottoms. Spends a lot of time outdoors with his laptop pre-game, slightly tanned. His room's in the basement of his house, spends most of his gaming time after sundown in his windowless little pit to counteract all the sunlight he gets during the day, apparently. (EDIT: Might just have him holed up in his basement on a desktop now, since that would make his world fit him even better.) Not a hardcore gamer but casually does things with his friends.
Rita spends more time holed up in that cave of a room she has, and her hair is usually tied back in a ponytail that was hastily thrown up and barely brushed. (Throwback to an old buddy of mine :) EDIT: She's less of a shut-in now, though she does spend way too much time shooting things in video games than you'd think normal.) Been thinking about color, probably going blonde, but a dirty blonde. Still U/C because IDK about my partner's people and we have to make bro-sis pairs after all! She might end up being a different ethnicity depending on how that works out, actually... I could see her either way, so! She's very flexible at this point. Has a habit of inadvertently squishing other people's feelings and offering whiny half-apologies later. Used to play a lot of first-person combats/shooters/etc. Enjoys that sort of confrontation but NOT inside her close circle, which is reserved for being more laid-back and less fighty-fighty. (possibly subverted with the Thief of Time? we're working on) Can be snarky and will sometimes flash insults on instinct, leading to that inadvertent feeling-squishing mentioned earlier more than anything else.
Nate is hyper, energetic, and small. He looks more his age than Hunter does. possibly younger. Very short, very scrawny, still very much retains that "kid look". Possibly blonde because it would fit him. But so would a redhead or being darker skinned. I'm still flopping around with him like fish! His head's in the clouds and honestly hell KNOWS where the rest of him is. I don't have much on him past that. After a stroke of inspiration JUST NOW as I'm writing this from the Crom Cruach scene of Secret of Kells, I may or may not have him use the crayonkind specibus or something that sounds equally ridiculous but is actually frikkin' awesome. We will see.
SCRAPING EVERYTHING FOR MARLEY, I'LL MESS WITH HER LATER IF NEEDED
Marley may or may not be Hunter's slime-sister. I'm not positive yet, since we're still sorting out things with the other side. >< I don't even know if she'll exist - do we have six or eight players even, IDKKK. Very quiet, and as her POSSIBLE title may hint, she is very calm and patient and willing to help please others. She appears easy to manipulate on the surface, and in some aspects she may be, but getting her to do certain things is downright impossible. ...she may or may not stay this way. I'd like to use the name Marley, but she might end up TOTALLY different in a month. I really don't know about her, even less than Nathaniel!
...this is my life now. I feel like I should feel pathetic, but honestly, I am pretty content. The only thing I wish for is college to start again, psycho as that is. And to get on a decent schedule of sleep. Fffff.
