30 Day Writing (RP!) Meme

I happened across a writing meme, and upon reading through the questions, I noticed that most of them could easily be applied to RP as well. I love talking about RP, so I'm going to take part in this one!

Day one: 1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.

Starting out with a hard question! To pick just one... I'm debating between PokeMUSH and FFXI RP, but I think I have to go with PokeMUSH because it was mine, my baby. The fact that we could take one element of Pokemon (Team Rocket), and turn it from the joke it was in the cartoon to serious, mature, deadly, adult RP made me so proud and happy.

We did that with more than Team Rocket though. That we could take the whole Pokemon theme and make it adult, make characters die, treat things realistically (pokemon breeding, etc). In my opinion, we took the canon and made it a whole lot better.

In a way, FFXI RP wasn't really all that different though. One other person and I RPed through IM. We did a ton of world building, had a stable of NPCs to call from, etc. Unlike Pokemon, the FFXI theme was already nicely mature and dark, we just expanded within it.

PokeMUSH wins in the end though, for multiple reasons including the pool of other people to RP with was bigger, and I'm still in contact with so many of you guys all these years later. <3

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.

24. How willing are you to kill your characters if the plot so demands it? What’s the most interesting way you’ve killed someone?
25. Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them.
26. Let’s talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favorite picture of him!
27. Along similar lines, do appearances play a big role in your stories? Tell us about them, or if not, how you go about designing your characters.
28. Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there’s nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones.
29. How often do you think about writing? Ever come across something IRL that reminds you of your story/characters?
30. Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters!

This is really fun! I can't wait to post again tomorrow. :D I might not do 30 days in a row, but I do hope to get through the whole list without losing track of this project.
