  • Puffin: I've been working on my reply for the Utopia Garrison thread (oh my heart) and I was actually going to add a little OOC note to say I would be happy for Ian to be the one - but if anyone else is keen for their character to be the one, then that's no problem!

How'd I miss this LOL?

Anyway - I'd be up for something with Mordred (he's scary y'all) and any of my characters.  I'm not sure how they would be connected (all of them are too old to have him as an instructor or have been in training with him) but if you have any ideas - I would love to hear them! LOL Mordred is sort of like the anti Arkin isn't he?

While I remember, I'd like to reserve Eric Toga from B: The Beginning for a character named Hubert Fraser.  He's not in the Garrison lol! The Survey Corps is getting a veterinarian. :)

Miri + Tyler - I can start it. I have this image of Miri just buzzing around like an aggravating humming bird and then dropping in front of Tyler like, "Hiiiii!!!!!" Or bumping into him lol. I'll start it later tomorrow. :-)

Anka/Dot + Tyler - Dot drinking with instructors makes me happy lol. A later thread for sure.

Arkin + Tyler - Yay! Sounds good. Arkin lives in the Garrison barracks in the officers section. I'm not sure people can just walk into that part of the base, but maybe Tyler finds him in the mess hall or just coming off duty so just walking across the grounds. He's used to random people seeking him out so he won't be bothered if Tyler just walks up to him.

Miri + Tyler - I think when Miri was younger she could honestly be very annoying to those who did not like chatty people with high pitched voices lol. However, she is the type of person who is smarter and more observant than people give her credit for.  If she noticed that he was struggling or seemed scared, she'd want to try and help him.  And she would never tell anyone his secret.  They could make interesting friends as there is plenty Miri would need help with as well. Maybe he would take on a little bit of a big brother role in her life. I think a thread with them as trainees would be fun for sure.

Anka/Dot + Tyler - I think Dot would visit the training grounds fairly often. After all - the bulk of the trainees would be joining his regiment.  And he would be very happy to share the good stuff with any instructors he likes.  He's also just a little nosy as well lol. Anka would have no actual issue with Tyler - just if he helps Dot with his drinking she may side eye him pretty hard lol.

Arkin + Tyler - I think Arkin would be pretty well known among the cadets and younger soldiers because he'll give things like remedies for hangovers and birth control without judgment or having to sign anything. Arkin would be happy to help Tyler with whatever he needed.

Hi and welcome to the game!

I'm happy to offer any of my characters. I write Anka Rheinberger, Dot Pixis, Arkin Holt, and Miriam Gracey. All of them are members of the Garrison.

Miriam - I think it's possible that Tyler and Miri were in the same training group. I'd be happy with any threads set during their training days. Miri is/was the type to just never stop talking but she's good at her core. She's not very strong but her main 3DM skill is she is very fast. She was one of those cadets that was always buzzing around with their gear.

Arkin - Arkin is a little older than Tyler but he has a reputation as a bit of a medic/apothecary. Basically people go to him when they don't want to face the actual medics lol. He also has a disability (mangled left hand from a cannon backfire) and has had to relearn how to do many tasks. He's also an all around nice guy.

Anka and Dot - I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but they are prominent Garrison members and Pixis does like to visit the training grounds now and then. He also likes to drink. Anka does not like it when Dot drinks and she (and Gustav) have tracked him down at many taverns.  Anka does like rules and organization though. If Tyler is ever investing something involving the Garrison, I imagine Anka and Pixis would know about it.

I'm open to just about anything! Again - welcome to the game! Happy to have you!

Garrison / Re: Brown Eyed Girl (Miri's Plotter)
« on: February 03, 2019, 12:04:00 AM »
I like that idea. They have very different personalities for sure.

I think it's logical to assume Gustav (and Anka) did not go right into being the Commander's aids directly from graduation. They must have pulled a few years as regular rank and file. Gustav and Miri could have been on a team together as younger soldiers. Maybe they had duty together where Miri just talked Gustav's ear off!

Character Development / Re: Housing?
« on: August 09, 2018, 01:50:27 AM »
Regarding the unofficial military housing - my mom says lots of the American troops went to that area because it avoided the roundabouts - which Americans don't seem to understand lol.

I know I have written about the officer's section of the barracks. I imagine it mostly for single officers though maybe if two officers were married - they could stay there as well.  I'm not really sure they would just be rooms (like single dorm rooms) or more like efficiency apartments (room for a couch and maybe a small dining area, etc). Opinions? :-)

I do think everyone would have basically the same furniture, though if they wanted to buy or build another bookcase or something - that would be allowed.

Arkin's quarters would be very cluttered. He would have crammed every available space with his tools and remedies. There would be some herbs hanging from the ceiling. The bookshelves would honestly have more jars and boxes than books. His bedding would be very nice since his family can afford to gift him quality linens and he has a quilt that his grandmother would have made.  His desk (what does not have treatments on it) would be fairly organized. He would have sketches of his family on his nightstand and ones of Luke and Nanaba as well. He'll get ones of his other friends eventually.

Anka's quarters would be neat - but she would have a few extra bookcases and that would make it look smaller than it really is.  It would be very plain.  Anka has never really had anything decorative (other than flowers) so she would not really know what to do with a painting if she had one.  She does try to have flowers when it is the season for them.  She has a few vases that she bought just out of training and she has them spread around her quarters.  Her desk is neat and Anka is organized in general.  Her bedding is still mostly Garrison issue. She did buy a thin quilt more than a few years ago and that is the one she still uses. It's fine. She also has an old travel chest at the foot of her bed that has a few extra linens, her winter coat, and one very old and very patched skirt in it.

Miriam, Owen, and Tabitha live in a small rowhouse and their neighbors are all Garrison families.  It consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen/dining area, a living area, and a bathroom. Owen would have done most of the decorating so it's just very....meh. Basically, everything is blue or beige. Tabby has the room with the most personality. Her room is very fun. She has about as many dolls as Owen and Miri can afford and a friend made a special shelf to display them. Owen uses the dinner table as a desk so there are normally papers to be graded resting in one corner.  It's a boring house but it's easy to tell there is a lot of love in it.

Moving houses is the worst. I just feel lucky that my dad has a pickup truck and could help. And we only moved like...two streets down the hill lol when we moved.  I have gotten into a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. So many cool ideas - so little skill to carry them out lol!

I'll do Pixis in one post and drop the others to a different one for organization sake.

For the Commander's house, I am sort of taking from the President of the college where my husband works. It's a large house but much of it is more for school use than family use. There is basically an apartment for the Pres, her S/O, and their kids - but most of the house is for meetings and other college functions.  There is even a ballroom.

So I imagine Dot's house is a bit like that. There are rooms that house his wife and such, but there are also meeting rooms, his other office, formal dining room, etc.   



The picture gives a good idea of how I think the military part of the house would look. The rooms military use would be very "masculine." Lots of dark wood and such. Dot has spent many long and lonely nights with a bottle of booze, ignoring his chess game (that he maybe plays by mail with someone), and just staring into the fire. His home office liquor cabinet is large and well made - but very plain. Also lots of bookshelves along with maps all over the extra tables.

Well that was a bit depressing.

I think Mrs. Pixis would have done the decorating in the family rooms. I image lots of light colors and probably drawings from their grandkids tacked on one of the walls. The bedroom would have a bed with a bright quilt on it. On each of their dressing tables, there is a sketch of their first spouse.

Mrs. Pixis is very homey so she has made most of the bedding and curtains in the house. She has kept the children's rooms fit for occupation since their grandkids stay over a fair amount. It's a happy home for sure. Dot prefers it to the military part of the house, though there are many days where he just goes from office and meetings to bed and then back again.

Character Development / Fall (tumble, plummet, trip) in love?
« on: July 31, 2018, 12:00:47 AM »
So what would make your characters fall in love with someone? What made them fall in love with their current S/Os? What are the traits they look for in a partner? Do they want kids? What would (if anything) make them wary of a relationship?

----


Dot Pixis- Dot fell in love with his first wife because his antics (yes he was a bit odd even at 19) amused her and she was funny herself. They shared a desire to travel the Walls and she was supportive of his military ambitions. She was also lovely - with lots of curly auburn hair. It was young love that never got to grow old.

Dot fell in love with his second wife (she has curly hair but it was blonde and is now white) because they had faced many of the same hardships (loss of a spouse, trying to raise a child alone). In truth, neither were really in love with each other when they married. They had been friends and they needed each other. Love grew over many years and while it is different than what Dot shared with his first wife, it is not less. It's an adult love born out of sorrow and need. Then contentment with a fair amount of true happiness mixed it. Dot sometimes wonders what life would be like if his first wife had not died in childbirth (along with the child) but he is grateful for what he found and how he was able to rebuild his life.  Dot married at 19, lost his first wife around age 23, had a few really rough years that he does not like to talk about, and married his second wife around age 27. He has a child from his first marriage, a stepchild that he forgets is not his, and he and his second wife share a child. He'd take in an orphan but that is not really allowed at he and his wife's age. 

Arkin Holt - Arkin is someone who feels a lot of love - but very little of it is romantic.  He's only had romantic feelings towards three people in his entire life. Ian, Anka, and Gustav. These were all people who helped/protected him in some way and people he feels have a core of kindness in them - though they have very different personalities.** As he has gotten older, he has gotten further and further from romantic feelings - instead, his love has focused itself on his friends and fellow soldiers and serving them. It's beyond doubtful Arkin would fall in love - but if he did - the person would have to be very kind and very understanding. Arkin has never been in an actual relationship. Ever. What I'm trying to say is Arkin's V Card is eternal  Arkin would take in an orphan if need be and would probably be a good (if maybe too lenient) parent.

** I know we have not discussed the how and why of Arkin's romantic feelings towards Gustav. It could have just been the awesome hair. ;-)

Anka Rheinberger - Anka has had crushes and a few very casual relationships in her life. The relationships lasted a few months and only one was intimate. She has spent most of her life working her way up the ranks and would need a partner who understood her devotion to the Garrison. It is what allowed her to claw her way up from poverty and make a sort of life for herself.

Anka would want a partner who was understanding of the stress and rigors of her job. She would also want someone who would not look down on her family or upbringing. She’s not embarrassed, but she knows her parents are sensitive about some things, even though they are in a much better situation now.

She would need someone who could maybe help her let go a little. Anka would need to really trust the man for that to happen. There is a lot bundled up in Anka and she is not about to let just anyone see it.

Anka would like to have a family someday but she has some fears. She has known two women who have died in or soon after giving birth and she would hate for that to happen. Anka would not want to leave her partner to raise a child alone, but she would also want to make sure she had a partner who could do so if need be. She’d be happy to take in an orphan and would be a strict but kind mother.
