Getting more and more excited about SnowblindRPG. Reservations open tomorrow, and applications open November 1. I am so READY. In my soul, anyway; I feel like I finally have a good handle on all the rules and gameplay. Now I'm like, AAAAAAAHHH. NEED TO MAKE ICONS. NEED TO WRITE MY APPLICATION. AAAAAAHHHH. Making icons will be interesting, I always used to foist that off on Lauren-of-the-Photoshop-skills, but she's not in this game, so I guess I'm probably on my own. Also, Steve is my first not-animated character? Live-action is harder to screencap, omg.

Snowblind thoughtfully supplies a test drive meme that you can use for the roleplay sample section of the application, so I let Steve loose in there. And oh my god, I'm already having so much fun.

Highlights:
-This thread with Grey from Snowpiercer ...So there's this thing where all of the doors in Norfinbury seal at sunset, and if you don't make it inside before that happens, you freeze to death in the night. YES, THIS IS THE KIND OF GAME IT IS. So Grey gets stuck outside and he and Steve have a long (mostly text-based) conversation on their tablets while Grey slowly succumbs to hypothermia and Steve keeps him company, knowing there's nothing else he can do for him. IT'S SUPER CHEERFUL. *lying face down on the floor, weeping* Grey's mun is awesome, we might play together more even if she doesn't end up applying.
-This thread with Koriand'r. Dear god but I love me some Starfire. We're only 25 comments in and they're snuggling by the fire and Steve's already been slightly traumatized by too much breast exposure and there was a slightly dub-con snogging (Kori pulled her 'what, I'm only kissing you because I want to learn French, I get absolutely nothing else out of this, I swear' schtick) and Steve doesn't know WHAT the heck just happened and now he's trying to flirt and it's a fucking trainwreck. I'm enjoying this so much.
-This Cecil Palmer of Night Vale who is EXCELLENT, and who is also dying slowly of hypothermia, and Steve is trying to be there for him but Cecil is FREAKING HIM THE HELL OUT, oh god I cackle out loud every time the thread updates.

And there's Jim from Treasure Planet, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy, Ava from the MCU spin-off novel Forever Red, Roy Mustang, and Dick Grayson! :D

Seriously can't wait to jump into the game. Is gonna be fuuuuuuunnn! Steve's gonna be so miserablllllllllle! >:D

Haha rp is such a niche fandom activity, but I love it for the same reason I love more traditional writing (and acting, and cosplay)—character exploration. And it's got a different flavor from solo writing, because it's reactive. You can't predict or control what the mod and other players will say and do, so it's improvisational, and the results are delightfully surprising. It's like the combined best bits of doing your own writing and reading other people's amazing work. I DO GET A BIT EXCITED ABOUT IT. XD

I INTEND TO. The tough part will be keeping a reasonable balance with the rest of my life. Especially the less fun bits. /o\
