Woo!  Can't wait to begin, assuming there's no issues with Wally, of course?   :D

None that I see. I just need to add him to the main list

You know, I was just looking over the characters on the first post of this thread and was thinking the same thing.  They both seem pretty eccentric and creative enough to have that possibility, so she can most certainly drop by the scrapyard for random items as long as they don't come from the workshop (where he makes the sculptures) or the shed (where he keeps the treasures he finds).   ;D
trinkets and binkets and dinkets. Old Jazzy Chez can find something anywhere she sticks her noses. Most usually it'll be the thing all others deem quite trash. Jewelry out of bits and clocks of wheels. Tick tock, tick tock, she might just knock into the greater treasure of all. At least in her own mind.
Opening post will be up tomorrow! Just going over everything and making sure it's as lovely as I envisioned it to be. =-)

  This looks awesome!

  ...I uhh.. see that Ursula isn't taken yet!  Nee hee hee, my favorite Disney Villain!  Is she a possibility, or does someone else have a claim?

  Barring that, I might express an interest in either Tinkerbell or Merida.  Heh, or maybe I'll just have Sebastian show up as a Blue's Bar owner that hates foodies!

  Ho hum!  So many choices!

Here is my character for submission!


Character Name:  Baloo

Cannon or Off-Scripr: Off-Script

Job in Storybrooke: Unemployed, he lives off the land

Level of Control
: Yes, I do not mind being controlled for story purposes

Character Concept: Baloo is a fun-loving, care free hermit who lives in the woods of Storybrook. Everything he owns he has found or builds himself. He has been known to do a few odd jobs around town (mostly manual labor) in order to buy a few things here and there that he feels he needs. But he finds a sense of total peace in living off just what he needs to get by, or as he says it, the bare necessities! Baloo is quite tall and broad for a man, and when seen out and about he usually ends up wearing an old looking set of coats or jeans. Rarely switching to different outfits since thrift stores don't normally carry clothing in his size. His favorite hobbies are fishing, exploring the woods, cooking, and visiting friends. He loves to laugh and reminisce with the other members of Storybrook about fond past memories.

I've considered taking Merida as an second character. She's one of my favorites and I actually like what they did with her in Once. Plus I like the actress, I liked her in Atlantis too.

Character Name:  Marigold Lee Viseli


Cannon or Off-Script: Mostly Canon

Job in Storybrooke:  Independently Wealthy Eccentric Charity Enthusiast

Character Concept:  Ms. Marigold Viseli is that eccentric wealthy widow in the house on the out skirts of town.  A patron of the arts, a generous supporter of charities, and a charming socialite, Ms. Viseli has that devilish quality where you know you can't trust her, but you can't help but listen to her pitch.  She apparently used to be fabulously wealthy, until she was indited in some fiasco involving tax evasion through shell corporations.  Even so, Viseli remains a woman of means, employing her considerable talents in business and con-artistry to ensure she is able to live in reasonable comfort.  She has a theatrical quality to her, and sometimes takes rather impressive roles in local plays she sponsors.  She is also a bit of a busy body, eager to help people with their problems, so long as it benefits her in some way, and especially if it gets her closer to her former heights of power and decadence.  A rumor that she dabbles in witch-craft exists, but no one is entirely sure..

  One important aspect of Viseli involves her two 'little dears,' Floyd and Jerry Angolna.  These two are brothers, and so close they can easily finish one another's sentences.  Snakey and strange, they are completely devoted to Viseli for some reason, apparently butlers that decided to stay on in her service after her fall from titanic levels of wealth.  One of these two can always be found at her house, welcoming visitors and keeping things tidy for the mistress.  The other, however, is usually prowling somewhere around town.  Viseli likes to keep an extra close watch on the goings on in Storybrooke, and the Angolna Brothers are uncannily thorough at keeping her informed. 

Level of Control: Plot twists and GM Control are just fine!

Definitely a big improvement over the OUAT canon version. ;D

I expect she has a particular interest in sponsoring young singers?  >:)

So... I just sent this one to Aislinn.

It's Bambi. She's a girl. And a grownup. Yep!

Job in Storybrooke: Nurse
Character Concept: Bambi is a sweet and gentle soul with hidden depths of bravery and an endless supply of loyalty. She's a curious and knowledge thirsty person, and has a certain nonchalant grace about her that's difficult to pin down because most of the time she's a little bit awkward as well. She's shy, but a generally cheerful and happy person.

Pick a character, any character. So long as it isn't a character that isn't already picked. Lol.

Ame's gave me a nice idea for a character.  It's not from any one fairytale, but rather from many.

And the concept is...

Character Name: Drake Groen
Cannon or Off-Script: Not Cannon
Job in Storybrooke: Runs an art gallery perhaps?
Character Concept: Drake is secretive, secluded, and more than a little stubborn.  He enjoys the finer things in life and has expensive tastes, but more than his love for the material is that of knowledge.  Behind his eyes hides a soul older than most.
Level of Control: Open to plot twists with consent from the writer

He looks quite intriguing. What might be his magical identity(s)? Or are you keeping that under wraps?

Welcome to all the new writers! I'm Aislinn....your tour-guide for this fun-filled adventure. =-)

Please pm me your mini character sheets. I'm noticing an increase in people posting them into the thread...but would prefer to have them in pm. I also need to know WHO your characters actually are. That's generally a very good piece of knowledge to know.

I'm just home from work so I will be making dinner and settling in for the evening. Expect answers to questions....replies to pms....and all that general wonderment to come in the following few hours.

v.v I was hoping this wouldn't happen... I fear I've spread myself too thin with games I'm involved in.

I'm going to have to withdraw my interest and character. I'm really sorry, Aislinn. I hope this doesn't throw a wrench in your plans, or anything.

Maybe when things calm down, I can see about popping back in.
