||Law & Order: SVU.
So, like, White Collar is one of the most awesome things ever. I can't believe I denied myself this wonderful show for so long because I was busy sulking about the time USA spent showing it instead of SVU reruns. Also, Matthew Bomer.
Unrelatedly: thank Something for my high school friends and our IRC-run dice-based RPGs. They've pretty much maintained all of my interest in RPing for the past few months. Courtesy of: Jr. Lt. Tanya Pavlichenko (my "socially stunted because she was literally created in a laboratory and raised by the Russian military in order to pilot an Evangelion, but she's just as much an awkward teenage girl as the other awkward teenage girls, and she's really perplexed by and protective of these Friend people she seems to have acquired" PC for Aedeptus Evangelion; the Warhammer 40K system with special rules in the Neon Genesis Evangelion fandom)
Dr. Clarissa Molloy, PhD. (my deceitful, anxious parapsychologist, who didn't actually believe in the supernatural… until she was trapped in a haunted and demon-infested house with a bunch of strangers PC for Witch Hunter; the homegrown system high-school-friend Jake made up after spending one spring break playing through the Silent Hill games and some Lovecraft-inspired video game)
Leila (my "cheerful, boisterous murder daemoness, previously a physically disabled and chronically ill cleric/healer sort, who sold her soul to Lord Larhal in exchange for strength and dexterity and magical prowess, like being able to rip giant magical newts in half with her bare hands, and she and her BFF Heidi, the formerly virginal succubus, have fallen in love and acquired a demonic intern named Gianna, who used to design RPGs while she was alive" PC for PitMUD; the equally homegrown system Jake made up to basically spoof the Hell out of D&D and other typical fantasy RPGs)
and Azura (the androgynous, sensationalist bard PC I spent today making for Dungeons: the Dragoning… who gets her first test run tonight, and has been described as Nella Patrick Harris, because she's charismatic and inherently talented [albeit not that worldly] and has a golden voice; ...I have no idea where Bryan and Jake found this one, but it's kind of a combination of the mechanics of Dungeons and Dragons, Warhammer 40K, and World of Darkness, and the spirit of D&D and another of Jake's homegrown games, Gate of Manywhere [wherein it was possible to play literally any character ever, including a group-mind-linked flock of penguins... not that I played the Flock. The Flock was an NPC. My most memorable character for Manywhere was Vanessa Van Helsing, granddaughter of The Professor Van Helsing and eternal nemesis of the reborn Count Dracula]).
Anyway. La la, doot doot, nothing to see here. Certainly not anything of interest to anyone but me, brogue, museridden, fruityoatybar, and giraffery. Definitely not.
( this is not a draft of an application form for Tony and Penny to give their modly yay/nay on. )
( and this is not a prospective look of an available characters list. definitely not. )
