So, in an effort to keep this conversation going, I brought together everyone's first picks so that we can start to get an idea of where we are at story-wise. Granted, first picks may not be what we end up with, but, if we do, it's shaping up to be a very interesting cast! Personally, I think it's a nice mix of dark and light, that is, if you look at it from the point of view of their base characters; however, as we all know, nobody in Storybrooke is completely one or the other.
Emma : Aislinn
Rumple : VonDoom
Regina : Ariel
Maleficent : Flower
Scar : Aiden
Possible OC : AlphaWolfQin
Jefferson : Twisted iN Tux
Undecided : Chrystal
Mulan : Emjay
Aurora : Phoenixrisen
Ruby : Kokaine
Graham : Intimate Ink
Thank you for doing this. As of right now, Chrystal can't come up with a suitable character but I've invited her to join us as a later time if she comes up with something. I'm always open to that. =-)
I might be interested in bringing in a original Cheshire cat. The Wonderland spin off kinda sucked. But I have a lovely shape shifting Cheshire cat character who is female and would fit in. I'm admittedly only caught up to the winter finale. My t.v.died before Christmas and I haven't invested in a new one yet. Also, my interest in tentative. I'm looking at trying to ease back into E after a hiatus and even with just one character, I might be slow. So if this is gonna be a quick rp, it may not be for me. But if there's room for someone who can maybe post once a week, I might do fine.
Moving quickly is NOT something I really enjoy doing in a story. I find that...especially with something like this....that too many things get ignored if you are racing through the story. I should mention that for the MAIN story, I would like to keep to a once a week posting schedule for everyone. If you are a writer that likes to post more quickly, you are more than welcome to seek out an interaction with another writer for a separate thread. You are also welcome to message me if you are interested in an interaction with an npc-type character that isn't currently being written by someone else. I'm open to those types of threads as well.
I'm happy to see discussion continuing to move forward. I'm currently attempting to create a plausible plot that will weave around everything. It's taking a lot more time then I anticipated but I promise that I AM working on it.
As it stands, I see no writers that want to write the same character...which is great. I'd like to go ahead and put an 'approval' stamp on the current list as is. Now is time for the fun part!
I'd like to get a 'character sheet' from everyone. I'm not the type that really needs a standardized character sheet and in this case, I don't think those would really work. What I do want from you all is a private message with your character and what YOUR ideas are for this character. I also would like to know what level of GM-ness you would like from me. I'm a pretty hands-on GM but I would like to make this an adventure tailored to each of your tastes. Obviously, as Phoenix pointed out, your characters will start with no idea that magic is real. Just small-town life in Storybrooke.
Also, just a quick aside - For the purposes of this collaboration, the character 'Henry'...I think...will be omitted. While it was a great catalyst between Regina and Emma, the same thing can occur without him. That is something that Ariel and I can chat about.
As for the information I'd like:
Whether you are going cannon or off-script and to what extent
Job in Storybrooke post-curse casting
What ideas you have for your character and how you view them
What level of GM-ness you would personally like. Do you want absolute control over your character? Do you want surprises? Just give me an idea.
Face-claim that you would like to use for the purposes of the story....at least to start.
Once I get this information privately from all of you, I will create a character list that has basic info.
