Let's talk about characters, baby.
A meme. About roleplaying. where you can't see the answers if you want to do it yourself until after you're done it. will anyone ever read this?

But roleplayers love to talk about their characters, don't they? How could I resist?

Name 12 characters you have played in RPGs, before looking at the questions that follow. List your characters numbered 1 to 12, with the name of the RPG you played them in. Once you've picked your 12 characters, look at the questions and answer accordingly. (No peeking until you've picked your characters!) Put your answers behind a LJ-cut.

1. Katerina Anne Meredith, bloodsucking lawyer. (Vampire the Masquerade)
2. Sarah Charlotte Johnson, Sluagh with appalling taste in fairies (Changeling the Dreaming)
3. Cass (aka Howls Crimson Tidings aka, much to her chagrin, Denise Richards), Psychotic man-hating lesbian werewolf. (Werewolf the Apocalypse)
4. Dr. Iphigenia (Nia) Andrews, nymphomaniac Trauma Team physician. (Cyberpunk 2020)
5. Celia Bartok, legal secretary with vengefulness issues. (Unknown Armies)
6. Cait of the Raven (Cait ni Cuibhan), Tuatha de Danaan with a God complex. (Shards)
7. Matylda Tameriska, Priestess and prostitute. (Bladelands)
8. Destia, hasbeen Goddess of Mirrors. (Renaissance)
9. Miss Dexter, head of the International Crime Syndicate S.I.N.I.S.T.E.R. (Conspiracy)
10. Amelie Dubois, pirate port barmaid. (Maelstrom)
11. Lillith Livia Vinka, politician, scheming bitch, and devoted mother. (Legacy)
12. Lady Violetta Constance Kingsley / Jane Kingsley, fruitloop heroine of her own personal Gothic novel. (Patchwork Universe)

1) Who would make a better college professor: 6, or 11?

Both good choices. Lillith probably wins out over Cait on the grounds that she's probably better at explaining things.

2) Do you think 2 is hot? How hot?

Hell no. Unless you like unremarkable skinny librarians called Sarah.

3) 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?

No. Just no. Destia takes orders from no-one. And Violetta just wouldn't give them in the first place.

4) What is, or would be, 9's favourite book?

World Domination for Dummies. (Remember, Miss Dexter is evil not stupid.)

5) Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?

Total Sense. Did I mention Sarah had a but of a blind spot for Sidhe? Besides, she'd likely be in are of Cait's intelligence.

6) For some reason, 5 is looking for a room-mate. Should they share a studio apartment with 9, or 10?

10. Temperamentally Celia is more like Miss Dexter, which is why she'd get on way better with Amelie.

7) 2, 7, and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?

well Sarah and Violetta are both borderline anorectic. Sarah and Violetta would quite happily discuss anything though. And would doubtless totally confuse Metylda.

8) 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?

Minced Amelie. Assuming she didn't talk her way out of it, but she's one of the few people who might be able to make Cass laugh.

9) If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would they get it back?

Destia would destroy Katerina utterly.

10) Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.

"Of Cats and Catatonia"

11) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?

Dimensional wormhole.

12) If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?

Matylda'd probably find me a bit boring.

13) If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?

Cass could find my ex-boss. Then have fun.

14) Does anyone on your friends list resemble 11 (either in appearance or personality)?

Personality, I hope not. Appearance, I'm not entirely sure what Lillith looks like, other than that she's pretty.

15) If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?

Sarah would probably think Nia and Celia were both bitches.

16) What might 10 shout while charging into battle?

Amelie just wouldn't charge into battle. lf forced to then probably "look behind you".

17) If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?

Destia might like "The Moon is Mine" by Fairground Attraction.

18) 1, 6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?

Cait. Violetta and Katerina would only be faking interest.

19) What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?

Even if Amelie weren't totally straight, and Sarah weren't totally straight, Sarah couldn't pick up Amelie in a million years.

20) What would 5 most likely be arrested for?

Criminal Damage. Or murder. Being an avatar of vengeance can be harsh sometimes.You could pretty much pick your crime where Celia was concerned.

21) What is 6's secret?

Cait was raped by a giant lizard.

22) If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first

Not sure. whichever of Lillith or Miss Dexter that didn't would be dead by the other's hand.

23) If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?

Destia would definitely be a good protector. Matylda would probably rob you herself.

24) 1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?

"Strange Bedfellows"

Re 13

I suspect you wouldn't have to bother with the commanding part :)

Re: Re 13

well, the question said "If I could". Obviously I couldn't. At least not without getting the shit kicked out of me.

Re: Re 13

Well yeah, but all you'd really need to do is tell the story and leave her to make up her own mind.
