character: Ion
series: Tales of the Abyss
tagging priority: ■■■□□: Ion's tags are the only ones getting done lately, but I'm not doing them very often.
muse strength: ■■■■■: The strongest muse I've got! I worry sometimes that he's deviated a lot from canon, but three years of development does that to a guy.
cast strength: ■■■■□: I LOVE OUR CAST TO PIECES!
plotting capabilities: ■■■■□: There are definitely things going on in Ion's life that can be brought up and make for some plots, it's just a matter of putting stuff into motion.
general fun level: ■■■■□: RP slump aside, his tags are still the most fun.
likelihood of drop: □□□□□: NEVER.

Ion's got a lot of stuff going on lately! I've been really bad about keeping up enthusiasm for old threads though, which is a problem when I'm such a slow tagger that most threads end up back-tagged. It's made me start putting a lot of priority towards certain threads rather than distributing tags equally, and that makes me feel bad since it means I'm basically playing favorites.

I think the only concern I have with Ion sometimes is that I feel like I'm the only one really excited for certain plots/things going on in his life sometimes, or that I'm coming off as pushing my plots into other people's faces. It was kind of unavoidable with the whole miasma thing since Ion is in a wheelchair and that's pretty hard to ignore, but there's a lot of stuff I'd love to explore with what's been going on between him and Kohan, and how him being in a relationship might affect his other CR. I've never actually gotten the chance to play a ship out in a game before, despite the fact that it's my favorite stuff to play. :'D Which is probably why I'm so excited about it.

Aside from helping people react to certain drops, the only for sure thing coming up for him is getting better! Which will hopefully happen sometimes towards the middle-end of this month. I'd also kinda like to do something for his birthday, but since ICly I don't think he would have brought it up to anyone, I'm not sure where to take that.

character: Hoshikyo / Kari Nijihi
series: Original
tagging priority: ■□□□□: I've been really bad about keeping up with Kari's tags, and I know I drop most of them prematurely.
muse strength: ■■■■□: Still spot on for Hoshikyo, though I second guess myself sometimes for Kari.
plotting capabilities: ■■■□□: She definitely has plots, but sometimes they feel more fun to plan out than to carry out, and I know that's definitely a problem.
general fun level: ■■□□□: She's still loads of fun when I actually feel like tagging with her, but that just doesn't happen all that often anymore.
likelihood of drop: ■■□□□: It'd be a lie to say it hasn't crossed my mind lately.

To be honest, I think my biggest issue with Kari is that it's hard to find characters that I really enjoy playing her off of, since in my mind she's pretty well settled in her own universe, so there isn't as much interest in expanding upon her CR in a different setting. As much as I love playing her and love the CR she does have here, I feel like I'm just not doing her justice. A lot of the powers that really make her unique just don't work in a jamjar setting, and I can't really see a future for her within Luceti itself.

But at the same time, between her and Ion, she's the one I'm more interested in getting involved with Luceti's overall plot, including drafts and the like. I like having a character who can actually fight! And I know right now I'm not going to drop anyone while I'm in an RP slump, since once I get out of it I'll probably regret dropping her. I've already reapped her once, and I don't like doing that three times for the same character if I can avoid it, since I know it's annoying for CR (and the mods for having to look at the same app over and over).














OH HEY WHAT'S OVER HERE...








character: Shuichi Shindou
series: Gravitation (Manga)
muse strength: ■■■□□: It's been a long time since I really played him, so I'd have to look back on some old logs and get a feel for how I did before.
cast strength: □□□□□: There is no cast, but I think I'd wanna keep it that way for awhile.
plotting capabilities: ■■■□□: I don't think he'd have all that much potential plot-wise aside from CR in general, but I like CR!
general fun level: ■■■■■: He's such a dork and an idiot and I think he'd be a lot of fun to play, since even Hoshikyo tends to be more serious in practice.
likelihood of app: ■■■□□: Depends on a lot of things.

This might seem like it came out of nowhere after that Characters I want to App meme, but in all honestly, I've wanted to bring Shuichi to Luceti for awhile! I really do love his character, and despite his silliness, he's actually capable of being serious sometimes (probably more prevalent in the manga, which is weird because his crazy moments in the manga are also more intense than in the anime). And to be honest, I feel like I need something new in Luceti to get me back into the swing of things. The only problem is I know I can't handle three characters for very long, so if I did app Shuichi, either he or Kari will end up getting the boot a few months down the line.

So anyway I'm gonna steal Akai's idea and do PROS AND CONS:

Pros
-I need something new in Luceti, since I can tell by how many events I've just been sitting out on these past few months that something's gotta change.
-For all his inevitable drama, Shuichi is more on the silly side of things, so I imagine he won't need as much thought as my other characters.
-There's no cast in the game right now, and with the canon point I have in mind, Shuichi will probably be able to handle this better, at least for a little while.
-And on that note, him being here may also attract a cast sometime down the road, which would be awesome after he's more settled in!
-Unlike Kari, I can see him having more of a place in Luceti and branching out to CR I wouldn't be able to get with her or Ion.

Cons
-Still need to finish reviewing the series, make icons, and then write an app all in just a few days.
-I know I can't handle three characters very well.
-If a Yuki ever apps in and drops, it could make Shuichi unplayable pretty damn quickly. I can plan ahead for this by somewhat cherry-picking his canon point, but I have to acknowledge it's a possibility.
-Since I haven't really tested him out yet, I may not have a consistent muse for him.
-He is much more high energy than Kari, which could be a good or bad things depending on how easy his tags come to me.

HONESTLY if I can finish my review and get an app out, I'll probably app him in. Maybe once I've got a few icons done, I'll throw him in a few memes to test him out. With exception to a select few, most of the ones I can find look like they were done during the manga's actual run and are like staring into an abyss of jpg-artifacts and fancy gifs...
