State Of The Me: Sick. Very sick. Starting dialysis as soon as all my equipment arrives and I start training. Which means that I am literally worse than I will potentially ever be, because I will feel BETTER after I start dialysis, but they didn't want to start until they had to because there's an inherent risk of infection every time I dialyze. Other than that, better. Still having a lot of anxiety problems but my psychiatrist put me on an SSRI that seems to be working much better than the last one I was on.

Dorian Pavus is getting a canon update as soon as I get around to it. I'm updating him to take into account all of the 3 DLCs so there will be spoilers for that in some of his posts, probably. His relationship with Biffy is going well, with a few regular relationship hiccups. After the canon update, Dorian will probably ask Biffy to marry him, tbh. Dorian adores all of his friends and needs to bother them because he NEEDS to know ALL their business, apparently (he is so upset Leliana isn't in Darrow.)

Things Dorian wwill be doing: He'll be in Silent Darrow fighting a version of himself that is an ~evil~~ blood mage because his fear is Temptation. He will actually need to use teamwork to defeat the fear of temptation because what keeps him from temptation is his strong social circle, so that will be an EP? After that, Dorian is helping to bind Noah Czerny to the material world so he doesn't disappear as spirits tend to do. Somewhere, Solas is probably very pissed off at Dorian.


Gansey is the char I'm struggling with the most and the one highest up on my potential drops, really of no fault but my own. He really needs a plotline in the game that gives him some agency, which is something I need to think about giving him, because without that agency he's mostly just reacting to things. Which is fine, but it's almost impossible to actually feel like I have a grasp on his character's motivations at any given time, when all his storyline is is reacting without much actual story agency. He needs to thread with a lot more people, probably, especially people who aren't satisfied with letting him keep them at arm's length (people like Blue, I guess.)

Gansey will be in Silent Darrow, and can interact with people in Silent Darrow, but his fear -- which is that Gansey doesn't exist anymore outside of his search for Glendower -- will be manifesting as a Gansey skinsuit being worn by five thousand bees. He'll be fighting it, but it's a fight he needs to win for himself for my characterization purposes (Gansey eventually needs to deal with the fact that he feels like all his relationships are one-way) and people will probably only get glimpses of what Gansey's dealing with personally, if they see anything.

I love Cole and I basically want to keep doing what I'm doing with him because it's good and I like it. I do need to try to keep up with people he's tagged in the past, because Cole tends to make for better storylines when he develops a long-term relationship with others. So don't be surprised if I aggressively tag a bunch of EPs with Cole this month, esp. new folks too.

Cole will be in Silent Darrow. His fear is Despair, so Cole will be fighting against a fear that is both omnipresent and intangible (the actual emotion of despair) and also against a creature that looks like Cole would as a Despair demon, basically a more emaciated Cole with a black Cloak and creepy rodent teeth and shit, that has ice powers. To defeat his fear, Cole will need to STOP feeling despair, so it will require outside help. He will need to ask help from OTHERS rather than offering it to them. So he will have an open EP.


I've liked Alexia so far, and she really just needs to do MORE. I was pretty busy since I apped her so I'm hoping now that my vacation is over I can make her meet a bunch of new people. She'll be getting a non-Silent Darrow EP this month a think, and tagging around a ton, just making friends and adjusting to Darrow. Eventually, she needs to get in a row with Dorian about Biffy, which is what will propel Dorian to propose to Biffy, but that won't happen until after the Silent Darrow plot.

I'm really open to plotting ideas for Alexia.

Balthier is my newest. Like Alexia, I was busy IRL after I apped him, so he really needs to just get out and meet new folks. Balthier also isn't going to be in Silent Darrow. I probably won't EP him until November, but he's definitely going to be tagging around new people as much as possible. He may make a big, flashy theft soon, just to announce he's in Darrow and what he's about, but I'll need to draft that up and submit to the mods because it would be all over Darrow news.

He's been flirting with a few people and plans to CONTINUE flirting with a few people.

I'm super open to plot opportunities for Balthier also!

FUTURE: Probably Gimli from Lord of the Rings, but I need to re-watch all the LOTR and Hobbit movies and also re-read the books for that sweet sweet background lore. Possibly Robin Goodfellow from the Cal Leandros Series if I keep getting the urge to re-app him somehow.

I'm going to be putting up a Silent Darrow plot post for Padme soon, but basically she's also going to be required to get help from other people to defeat her fear (particularly people she already knows), so if you want her to do a mutual team-up with Dorian or Cole I would be very down for that.

I do want her to meet Cole at some point, whether in SD or not, but lbr I want all of mine to meet Cole, Cole is amazing.

Oooh, yes, Dorian should definitely find Padme in Silent Darrow. I think that could be very interesting!

Cole and Padme should also totally meet. Maybe in Silent Darrow briefly? Or maybe outside. I'm thinking on it because meeting Cole in SD versus like ... meeting Cole when he's doing his best are super different experiences.

I've got her plotting post up here!

TBH I think if Padme runs into Cole in Silent Darrow she'll probably assume he's part of Silent Darrow. Which could be Not Good.

I think Cole and Eleanor need to be friends. Yes. This needs to happen.

From: [personal profile] propertool
AGREE! This should happen somehow. Do you plan an EP for Eleanor anytime soon? Or will she be in Silent Darrow plot?

Yes? Maybe both, but I hope to EP this weekend. (Assuming I'm not still stuck at that fucking ball.)

GIMLI GIMLI GIMLI. Eowyn will be SO PLEASED to see him again. He'll get hugged.

Balthier and Eowyn should meet again. And of course Dorian is welcome to bug her about her business, but there's no juicy stuff to tell. Sorry Dorian.

I am excited to Gimli! I'm probably going to be apping him in early November. (I have to re-read so much canon!)

Yes, Balthier should absolutely run into Eowyn again (so should Dorian!) Is Eowyn getting an EP anytime soon? I may EP Balthier later this month because he's not going to be in Silent Darrow, but I could start a private thread for those two also.

Oh, the too much canon pain. I know it well. I'm always looking at different sites for dates, times, people, lineages, etc. I have a general timeline for her with important dates, but I've given up on remembering what happens when in 3019. XD

I'm not planning to EP her this month since she had one last month, and she'll be in Silent Darrow, so she won't be able to tag his. She might get really loud unexpectedly so I have to EP her, but a private thread might be a good plan. I'm always up for those.

We should talk about Gansey and Blue and their agency issues/issues issues/need for some actual plot, y/y?

Lazily, even.

I enjoy all of yours so much, basically more threads always.

From: [personal profile] propertool
YES Gansey and Blue need to thread so they can talk about things. Do you want to set something current or after Kavinsky arrives or IDK, when seems like a good time to Blue? But anyway, those two definitely need to talk about their relationship status in general and how they're feeling. (I actually don't know if Gansey knows that Adam and Ronan are in a relationship/whatever they are rn?)

Other things that should happen: Grantaire and Dorian should hang. Blue should meet Dorian because they could be interesting. I know WRT Grantaire and Dorian, I'm canon updating Dorian soon, and at the point I'm taking him from, he'll have inherited his father's seat in the Magisterium and be running his own political party in the Senate. That could be interesting, given Grantaire's own canon.

We sort of worked out Blue and Gansey tonight
(BTW um let's talk about that fantasy life Gansey's got going on *_*)


Grantaire and Dorian should definitely hang and I definitely think more politics would be interesting. I want to read up on DA stuff to find out just HOW interesting, but hey, he's in a Senate which is by nature at least somewhat representative, A+ for the begrudging republican. I definitely want to throw Blue and Dorian together, too! I think they could have fun. She might be like "DORIAN CHECK UR PRIVILEGE" as we mentioned but hey, he can use that. I also just want to see what her powers do with his. *rubs hands*
