Since everyone else is doing this, and it seems like a good way to keep track of everything...
And like draco_mun
, I think I'll start with the character giving me the most trouble.pellaeon Grand Admiral Gilad Pellaeon, Star Wars
I picked Gil as my 4th muse after a lot of thought, and it took a while for the approval to come through. I was really excited by the time I finally got to write him officially... and then things just kind of tapered off. His intro was okay, and his first couple posts, but after that I discovered the Admiral had a problem.
Okay, a lot of problems. One, he's angsting really badly about the deaths of his lover and their son, and he will not stop
. I have a perfectly nice, lovely happy little AU plotline waiting for him, and he refuses to play along. He wants to be miserable. And like Jaina Solo, the other SW pup I already retired, he refuses to write the "war is really shitty" stories I was hoping he'd tell. (I feel like giving the finger to Pres. Bush and the War on Terror and all that crap.)
Anyway, he is this
close to getting his ass retired.shadow_anna Anna Sheridan, Babylon 5
Anna was my first pup, the one that got me into theatrical_muse
in the first place. draco_mun
emailed me when t_m was getting started, fangirled my Anna a bit, and suggested I apply to write her in t_m. So I did. I haven't had any regrets yet.
Anna was a bit shy at first, but now she's making all kinds of friends, in and out of her fandom. Londo, Carolyn, Draco, Garibaldi. Oh, and Goneril, sort of. Goneril thinks she's someone from 90210.
Anna went to Draco's party with Londo, and had a hell of a good time. Drunk bugsndaffy
was one of the highlights. Anna's a bit creeped out by them, of course, but it was still funny. She and Londo ended up playing poker with mr_morden
and a few others. Morden and his pal Craig lost a few artifacts from their Evil Stuff collection, and Anna lost an Apocalypse Box (apocalypsebox
, natch)- to Captain Jack Sparrow. Fun times.
She wants to adopt Draco Malfoy- still. And she's been invited to Vir's Ascension Day party by Londo. She's going, with a technomage chaperone type person, probably starlight_mage
One of these years, since the fanfic version is taking so damned long to write, I'm going to have to throw together sort of a 'backgrounder' on Anna and the technomages. I'll probably post it here, and it should go a long way toward explaining the way I see Anna and how I play/write her in t_m, particularly as relates to the mages.starlight_mage Galen, Babylon 5/Crusade
Galen is my newest pup, and already a favorite, right up there with Anna and Irina. (Let's not talk about Gil; let's just continue to pretend he doesn't exist.) Thus far Galen has been flashed by Londo, who then asked him to impersonate Gandalf. Galen, appropiratly, quoted Elric quoting that line from LOTR. Say it with me: "Do not try the patience of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."
Which, of course, has some interesting connotations for Galen, which tie into the Passing of the Technomages trilogy- which everybody ought to read, because it rocks.
He's also pestering Morden a bit, and either taunting or being taunted by the Apocalypse Box- maybe both at the same time.
I watched "The Geometry of Shadows" again today, and with that fresh in my mind, I'm just waiting for someone to really piss off Galen.irina_derevko Irina Derevko, Alias
I love my Irina. I know in my heart she is not as good as my friend dagnylilytable
's Irina, but she is a hell of a lot of fun to write. She's been up to no good lately, taunting sark_castic
(Sark) and pestering sydney_b
about giving up on Vaughn perminantly.
She's also, um, been seduced by i_am_shiny
(The One Ring) and is now the Queen of Dispair, leader of the new, improved, Neo-less Ringwraiths. Do not mess with Ringwraith!Spymommy. Seriously.
It'll be interesting to see where that goes, especally if I give into my temptation to drop pellaeon
in favor of Jack Bristow. I just see Jack having a huge problem with Irina playing evil- well, either that or he'll think she's crazy.
But seriously. There are things Irina won't do, even for the Ring and whatever it may be able to do for her. She is going to protect her interests- and her family, whether they want her or not- at all costs.
Yeah, she shot Sydney, and she's not always sweetness and light to Jack, but she has her reasons.
Non-TM pupsapocalypsebox The Apocalypse Box, Babylon 5/Crusade
Shared with draco_mun
. The Box started talking to Captain Jack at Draco's party, and has gone right on talking. To Jack, to Kosh and Galen and a few others... I haven't done much with it lately, since with two people running the Box I'd rather let Star write the Box's half of the Box/Galen conversation.
