Love Thread!

We seem to be on approximately an every two year rotation with this one so Cozza figured it was time for a new one and emailed me to help. Cozza-the-awesome was like-minded so she'll be getting the first half done in another post because, well, there's a lot of us. Part one is over here.

This is how it works for those of you new within the past two years or who have swiss cheese for memories. Below you will find a comment for each player, alphabetical by name, with links to their wiki player pages as well as links to the LJs of their characters with shiny little visuals. Reply to the comments with any and all positive feedback.

No negativity is welcome.

This thread is here to give everyone warm fuzzies.

Aaaand, go!

(Players and readers alike are welcome to leave love)

I decided I wasn't going to open my bottle of wine until I was done spreading my love all over here, but I feel like I should have wine if I'm doing Jen's. There is just something so wrong with not putting Jen and Wine together.

I have a similar complaint about Jen that I had about Twiller. We don't see her girls nearly often enough. I love, love, love them both. Angel has grown up from this totally boy crazy teenager to a slightly less boy crazy young adult. She has lost none of her youthful mischief and craziness, though. Wanda, on the other hand...god, if there was ever a woman to make Vanessa wish she could turn women gay... It's just not fair to be that hot and that badass. Alright? I said it. Someone needed to. It's unfair. I love her total unwillingness to play Mom when Jubilee and Marie-Ange are going at it yet again because, really, who needs to get involved in that mess? Wanda's just so quietly...Wanda. I can't even find the words (possibly because nap time should've been like 2 hours ago). She's strong without needing to show it off, capable without having to remind you and feminine despite being deadly enough to make most men pee themselves.

*grins* Jen, you are made of awesome and win. Seriously. I love both Angel and Wanda to bits and pieces, mostly because neither of them ever fail to make Wade laugh. Whether it's Wanda totally not putting a stop to his ridiculous flirting or Angel letting him blow stuff up - God, they're both fantastic. You're an awesome player and I'm seriously looking forward to getting to log more with you.

Jen! So much fun to read and to play with. I really do want us to finish that log with Laurie and Angel talking about boys whenever you get a moment. Because it stands out as one of the most fun logs I've ever been involved with.

And one of these days we will totally need to do the stuff with Wanda and Jubilee we talked about, because female mentors of awesomeness like Wanda don't come along every day.

As to you personally, you are one of the happiest, kindest people I know. You're always there for your friends, come hell or high water and even when you're stressed or angry, you're not cruel. You're the best, mate. :D

Monkey! Not only are you so much fun to play with (ahahaha, Doug spotting Angel's one day crush on him), you're also one of the nicest, best people in this game. I love the maturing that Angel has been doing, and also the way Wanda just keeps going through whatever life throws at her.

(also Wanda/Strange otp, omg)

Jo! My darling! My love! I can't get enough of you so why does Life insist on keeping us apart?! I weep! I am filled with sorrow! I'm like Bella Swan only without the creepy pedophile stalker vampire boyfriend!

Hang on...I think that got sort of away from me.

Anyway, point is, I'm a big fan of you! Okay, okay, so I like your girls too, but mostly I'm in it for the Jo. ;)

I have to admit, Cammie got there first so she's got a bigger spot in my heart. She is so damn antagonistic with Vanessa that it's amazing. Which isn't to say Vanessa doesn't deserve it. These two are just like watching goats butt heads with their horns locked together. They can't get away and wouldn't give up anyway. And how can I possibly love the only girl to get Kevin to blush so much about sex and all things sex related? Not to mention the time she actually chased him with the spatula.

Dori is so adorably geektastic. I feel like she is our geek chic. Sure, Doug corners the market for the guys, but geek girls are so much cooler and Dori's got the niche all to herself here. She's got such an awful situation with her father and I love watching that play out. But I also love her silly, spastic delight. Especially with Kyle.

Who knew Angelo would jump on mutant trafficking with the sort of pissed off passion he did? And to think, that was a spur of the moment idea. Angelo's passion for what he does is really great and his willingness to put himself on the line for others is done so well that you never think he wants to be the hero. He just wants to help.

It's pretty hard to not like Kurt. I sort of think of him like a puppy. Which I'm sure wouldn't please him that much, but he's just so damn sweet about stuff. And I love to think of him trying to teach clumsy, gawky, awkward teenagers how to dance.

Artie! Seriously, I love this kid. He is so damn sarcastic and snarky and bitter at the world. He is going through some Shit and it plays out so well. I really love what you're doing with his recent interest in where he comes from and his reunion with Annalee that didn't go so well. I love to think of him winding up in X-Force and honing what some may consider some shady skills he already has. Remember to always use those powers for good, kid. Evil that gets you to the good is cool.

And Monet! I did not forget about Monet. She is sort of insane. Really, that is my summation of her, haha. She was the first person to decide Vanessa's mutation was fun to play with and somehow managed to get away with calling Kevin "Kevvypants" for years. She is such a snob about some things and you totally want to kick her when she's being a bitch (which she does so well), only then she does something to make you forget all about that and you're on her team again. And I really enjoy her relationship with Kurt and how she's sort of brought him out of his shell in a way.

Macktastic! I love you! I really, really do. And it has nothing to do with your mad graphics skills, as enviable as they may be. No, it is entirely based on a little trip to New Orleans and finding out just how awesome and insane you are when unfiltered. You are so much fun to hang out with and talk to, totally aside from game stuff. Within game, though, you are totally down for whatever, are a great writer and let Jean be Vanessa's personal background check on the fly! :)

And, for the record, Jean is awesome for being brain scan lady while Vanessa mimic hunted! I really love their friendship, as tense and rocky as it can be. They both totally step on one another's toes and nerves but manage to recoup and move on from it fairly easy (easy-ish?). I can't wait to see how their relationship evolves once Vanessa is back, in all her trigger-happy, tense, damaged glory.

God, and Molly! How the hell can you possibly not love Molly? She's like mentally 8 thanks to mom and dad's meddling, but she's so damn addicting. She wins over everyone. Literally, everyone. Kevin was sort of cranky over that whole "Rot" thing and then, bam! He was in love with her once we put them together. I'm really looking forward to throwing Molly and Layla at one another to see how they adapt to each other. ("Holy, shit, are you ok? Did you break your back?" "I'm invincible!" "...Oh thank fuck!")

It takes a lot of nerve to play the guy everyone is going to hate. Clearly Marek has nerve in spades. Jared is that guy that everyone loves to hate. I don't know what his trajectory is in game, but it's fun to watch him shove his entire leg in his mouth. Jared's practically a guarantee of journal activity.

Megan has come out of a bad spot while maintaining her youthful joy, which I really like. She pops up to investigate art and paint walls. I wish I had gotten to do more with her and Kevin before I dropped him. But that's okay, because our perky Pixie is still around and I'll have someone new to terrorize her with soon enough. :)

I love Matt and his Jake. Jake's quite an undertaking at times because he has a whole library worth of history in XP, but Matt seems to manage it while keeping Jake so very close to the Jake's we've known in XP's past. Though, I will admit that the changes to how Jake's mutation works makes me a little sad. Vanessa will never get to practice having eyeballs at the ends of her fingers like she wanted to! One day, though, I will convince Matt to agree to a body swap log like Jake 2.0 and Vanessa did. :)

My reason for being! Sort of literally since she sold me on XP when another had failed.

I've been pretty partial to Mo's Matt since I first met him 4.5 years ago in another game. She did the impossible and managed to app him in XP despite the fact that he was supposed to be fictional in our game world. :) Mo's always a lot of fun to write with and with Layla coming in we'll have the chance to write together again finally! (Man, they are gonna be Matt/Lore all over again, aren't they?)

OMG Mon! Where do I begin? She had the most awesome, accidental timing ever with her return to the game. Vanessa had been sort of mopey without her BFF and I had missed her like mad. Mon's a bit crazy, but in a great way that makes you smile. She throws out things like "Vanessa will come home to find her apartment covered in plushie goats" and you only need to grin a little before she's convinced to do it. She will run with crack and turn it into a legitimate character choice just for the fun of playing with whatever weird thing she's come up with.

Mon is such a bright, funny, energetic, receptive person. She gives back to you when you write with her and gives you so much to work with. She'll help bounce ideas around and do everything she can to help someone accomplish something they need in a plot or a log. She's a great writer and a really, truly fantastic individual & friend.

I love Adri's penchant for rambling internal monologue because it just feels so true to her character. And her friendship with Vanessa is absolutely irreplaceable. Trust me, I tried to replace it. It didn't work at all. Adri is very much Vanessa's other half, which is impressive considering how much they didn't get along at all when they first met. But, like Mon, Adri is sort of infectiously likable.

God, I love Callisto. Morag's the quiet sort in the game, but the moment she pops up I remember anew why I love her and her girl so much. Callisto manages to be so very painfully awkward whenever sex or romance comes up that you almost want to hug her. (Not that you expect she'd let you.) And then she does things like start a food fight to instigate a distraction. Cal is stoic without coming off like an asshole for it, which so very many people do. She's at once lovable and a bit of a question mark.

I give Nat major credit for being able to simply roll with whatever I end up throwing at her in a log. Nearly all our logs take a turn for the "wait, how'd that happen?" including the entire affair and relationship between Warren and Vanessa. She's been all too encouraging about Vanessa deceiving Amara as she flirts while wearing a male body, too. And Amara and Kevin ended up quiet unexpected friends from one random log we decided to do one day. I really love that "just roll with it" approach to writing logs because it's where I come from so much of the time.

I really love Amara's focus on HeliX and Nat's quiet attempts to do something with the long abandoned organization. She has this enthusiasm for HeliX and ELPIS that gives me some faith that new life may wind up breathed into both. If she ever finds the time in her very busy life to run the bajillion and one plots she has ideas for anyway. :D

Nathan of the disappearing! Post-college life has taken him away from us more than I would like but I suppose I've got to let it. Something about real life being more important or something. (What? I'm totally not the one making all that grumbling noise.) I bemoan the lack of him specifically because he's a great friend. He's been there for me a number of times when I've really needed someone but been largely unwilling to go to anyone (because I am stubborn). If I need him then he is there and I cannot possibly convey how much I adore him for that.

And Lex, the poor girly man. He has far too much sensitivity for Vanessa's tastes and I really felt bad for him when she pulled a, well, a Vanessa basically. The poor guy was totally heartbroken over her and their dynamic was always so much fun. He managed to deal with her temper flares when he accidentally hit the wrong button and totally made himself into a soft spot for her. No one's ever been able to get her to totally give in to anything as quickly and easily as Lex has. I don't know how you do that, but you deserve a brownie or something.

calliopes_pen: (capes_and_cowls Meggan nature)

[personal profile] calliopes_pen 2011-09-03 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Because of Kevin, Meggan has turned into a blueberry waffle lover and Waffle House regular. The idea of attempting some pottery would have just remained a vague thought for her and nothing more, if he hadn't given her the tools as a present.

I, too, enjoy that our logs tend to go whichever way the wind blows. Looking forward to Layla's introduction.

Rachel is my source of nerd news! It's perhaps a little sad, but I totally check my LJ f-list for her daily posting of nerd news of note. (Okay, so that's what I call it, not what she calls it.)

Rachel's always up for a log. Always. And she doesn't make me have ideas or directions, which makes me particularly enamored of her. I can go "hey, I'm thinking to a trip to the waffle house" and she'll be all for it. God knows what will happen at the waffle house, but that's half the fun! (Meggan as a mermaid anyone? ... still need to finish that log with her, actually)

Meggan is this very sweet, surprisingly normal girl despite her history. She's sort of out of the loop and catching up socially which Rachel manages to convey without ever taking it too far or making it too obvious. It's just touches here and there. I love that she has Golden Girls dates with Wade, for the record. And I kind of adored Kevin's totally unrequited crush on her. Though I will miss their trips to the Waffle House. But I will never forget that Meggan found a waffle pillow, of all things, to get him for his birthday.

I'm not sure LJ would ever let me properly explain the awesomeness that is Rossi. After X number of comments they would probably cut me off. Suffice to say, I think of Rossi as an invaluable part of the game. She does a bunch of grunt work that the rest of us rarely thank her for but couldn't do without. She does a boatload of wiki maintenance and upkeep on top of all the advertising (as a mod, I thank you for not making me do that!).

Now you take all that and add on her unwavering willingness to help other players out IC or OOC. If people are stuck with their characters, if they need a way to get from A to D without knowing where B and C are, if they need someone to bounce ideas off of...I've never known her to not be there for people. And she's a phenomenal friend for anyone lucky enough to count her as one.

Which is to say nothing about her girls yet. I have a huge soft spot for both her girls. Yvette was Kevin's first, closest and dearest friend for the vast majority of the time I played him. (And extra points to Rossi for never actually killing me for Kevin continually wavering between liking Yvette as something more than a little sister and relegating her to only ever being that.) Likewise, Amanda is irreplaceable for Vanessa. They've had ups and downs, though their downs have certainly seemed to last longer because they are pretty stubborn. But Amanda is still that girl that if given half a chance Vanessa would claim as her own and growl at anyone who tried to challenge her on it. (And she still has really dirty thoughts involving Amanda and a dance club, fyi.)

I challenge anyone to match the pure enthusiasm Ryan has! Seriously, above all else when I think of Ryan I think of his seemingly endless exuberance where the game is concerned. Sure, it's not really endless. Sure, eventually he turns into a human who gets discouraged that this super cool thing from canon can't be done feasible in a movieverse game. But he's probably going to try about 20 different things before he gets to that point.

I love Ryan's Mad Scientist Hank, particularly that ridiculous coffee maker that Hank made. And the struggles of Julian with his family are actually relateable, which I find impressive because it's too easy to go the poor little rich boy route with someone like Julian. The kid is wealthy and arrogant and a decent person and well-intentioned on his road to hell that he so frequently seems to wind up on. But it's okay, because he's generally trying to do the right thing when he's going down it. He's just doing it in the totally wrong way. And taking his lumps that come afterward.

Oh, Seraph my Seraph! Where do I begin? How about with crack and how you're sort of made of it? I don't think readers quite grasp how totally off the wall you can be at times, which is a shame because I find it to be a selling point in your favor. :) Then again, look who this is coming from.

I really adore Laurie. Vanessa has this hardcore protective streak where she is concerned whether or not Laurie really needs it. I don't think anything will ever change her pseudo little sister status with Vanessa, honestly. She's been adopted and regardless of what comes family is family, you forgive them anything eventually. To be honest, I don't even know how Laurie accomplished that. Vanessa was so very unfriendly in a way at the point when they got close. Laurie is just so very real to me. You let her be flawed, which a lot of writers tend to shy away from. You let her stumble and fall and scrape up her knees. She burns out from taking too much on, she gets petulant when she gets called out for something, and she shows up when her friends need her.

Jubilee is, well, she's where your cracktasticness comes out. I sort of miss her days of being the fridge ninja, there to steal everyone's food. Though being the crochet ninja almost makes up for it. She manages to be both completely immature and proficiently deadly. She's a nice contrast which are both equally fun to read. And I appreciate anyone who can annoy Vanessa as easily as Jubes can when she feels like it.

You are also one of the nicest people I have ever known in my life. That really deserves mention here. I like to put it down to Aussie laid back charm, but I know that's just an American myth and it has more to do with you being you than you being an Aussie. But I'm going to pretend it's both if that's cool with you. ;)

Shai is one of a very few people who I think of primarily in a personal context rather than a game context. She's pretty reliable for helping you kill time when you're awake at stupid o'clock at night because she's sequestered at work. (or was, anyway.)

I still miss Cessily, oddly enough. She wasn't in the game very long over all but I had a fondness for her, and God knows Kevin did too.

I find Tabitha and her perpetual virginity and how that gets brought up and played out interesting. We're finally seeing her loosen up some of her suspicious nature to try things out and make the sort of progress most others did in their teen years. But it's never over the top or unbelievable...once you accept that some people really are virgins into their mid to late twenties.

Tap! Tap, Tap, Tap...what can I possibly say? Some people go on hiatus and have to ease back in with trepidation. You, however, pop back up full of gusto and it's hard to remember you and your boys were ever on a break! It was sort of like "And then there was Tap!" and lightning struck and you were back and moving at 90mph with plot bunnies breeding and breeding and breeding...as bunnies tend to do.

I have one huge, glaring, monumental complaint about Twiller. And that is that we don't see his boys nearly enough for my tastes. I adore Jean-Phillipe's snarking especially. Though It's hard not to love Doug in general. That could be from bias because Vanessa also adores Doug for some inexplicable reason I've never quite pinpointed. Then again, I don't understand half of why Vanessa likes or dislikes people anyway.

On top of my fondness for his boys there is my undying love of Twiller himself. He's a great guy to waste your boredom texting or chatting with. Trust me, I've had many fewer duller-than-hell days at work because of this man.
