I miss...

Cracked-out Lord of the Rings role plays. The greatest fun I've had in LotR 'verse was one in which Arwen got kidnapped by Sauron and turned into the Dark Lady of Mordor after overexposure to Morgoth. Talk about your teenage rebellions. But she was a really awesome pawn for the bad guys because hi, she's about to be Queen in Gondor, she's Galadriel's protege/granddaughter, and Elrond's baby girl. She can do damage. And the hobbits trust her. We actually wound up with Pippin and Merry being her Pages o' Evil. 

Another fun one was after she had accidentally conferred damn-near-eternal-life on Eowyn (we had Arwen interpreted as a sort of mini-Melian/Galadriel with sorcerous abilities). She and Eowyn had become bffs, too. Arwen and Glorfindel had been having a sort of  courtly love thing going on for 3 centuries (even though he was about to get married any century now). ...  And Legolas was like James Bond's elf twin(omfg I miss that Legolas player! Leggy was so hilariously smarmy). Of course that game had Arwen and the twins all but sleeping together, until an unfortunate invasion of Mary Sues killed it. ... And yeah, Mary Sues can even kill crack!verses where Elrond is making inappropriate remarks to Gandalf and Sauron's lieutenants are so busy having sex they haven't gotten around to invading yet (no, Sauron was not amused). The Mary Sue Invasion started with a gorgeous gypsy riverpirate elf who poisoned Elrohir. Elladan then slept with her and made everyone say it was perfectly okay about her poisoning his twin ... Arwen was convinced that Elladan had been bespelled, so she kept trying to turn his new wife into a toad. The next Sue took over Lorien, and kept Haldir so busy with sexings that when Sauron attacked, he missed it. ... 

That game died due to a psychotic mod. Sigh. Not only paranoid but she started playing Elladan, Elrond, and Aragorn, hated that Eowyn and Arwen were friends, then began dictating exactly how I ought to be playing Arwen (bookish, shy, sweet, and bffs with her characters, including the gorgeous gypsy riverpirate elf who poisoned Elrohir-- and if I didn't think that way I should consider taking some other character, and didn't I know that I totally sucked as a player in general?)... I figured that it was time to just let her play Arwen too, and bowed out.  ... And then proceeded to be stalked, because omfg how dare I leave? But I was such an awful player! But how dare I leave! Yeah I quit all rps for a good year after that. It's why anytime I pick up my old LoTR chars they stay in pan-fandom games.

But the whole evil!Arwen was hella fun. Especially when she got round to torturing Elrond and her brothers. ... those scenes were so wrong. Funny, but wrong. Elladan eventually killed Arwen, but true to form she broke him in the process, and he wound up picking up where she'd left off.

Really awesome Discworld role plays. Whatever happened to kick-ass Lord Vetinari players? I shouldn't ask, since Lord Vetinari is hard as hell to play, but... well, I can wish right? 

Spontaneous Idealist.

My personality type: the spontaneous idealist. Take the free iPersonic personality test!The spontaneous idealist is a creative, lively and open-minded person. He is humorous and disposes of a contagious zest for life. His enthusiasm and sparkling energy inspires others and sweeps them along. He enjoys being together with other people and often has an uncanny intuition for their motivations and potential. The spontaneous idealist is a master of communication and a very amusing and gifted entertainer. Fun and variety are guaranteed when he is around. However, he is sometimes somewhat too impulsive in dealing with others and can hurt people without really meaning to do so, due to his direct and sometimes critical nature.

This personality type is a keen and alert observer; he misses nothing which is going on around him. In extreme cases, he tends to be oversensitive and exaggeratedly alert and is inwardly always ready to jump. Life for him is an exciting drama full of emotionality. However, he quickly becomes bored when things repeat themselves and too much detailed work and care is required. His creativity, his imaginativeness and his originality become most noticeable when developing new projects and ideas - he then leaves the meticulous implementation of the whole to others. On the whole, the spontaneous idealist attaches great value to his inner and outward independence and does not like accepting a subordinate role. He therefore has problems with hierarchies and authorities.

If you have a spontaneous idealist as your friend, you will never be bored; with him, you can enjoy life to the full and celebrate the best parties. At the same time, he is warm, sensitive, attentive and always willing to help. If the spontaneous idealist has just fallen in love, the sky is full of violins and his new partner is showered with attention and affection. This type then bubbles over with charm, tenderness and imagination. But, unfortunately, it soon becomes boring for him once the novelty has worn off. Boring everyday life in a partnership is not for him so that many spontaneous idealists slip from one affair into another. However, should the partner manage to keep his curiosity alive and not let routine and familiarity gain the upper hand, the spontaneous idealist can be an inspiring and loving partner

This poor ij... never gets updated.

actually it does, just with private entries. I keep stashing unfinished rp apps and such in it.

Anyway, whatever. This journal looks doomed to be rp-centric. I spend too much time over at summersdream on livejournal, which is where you can find the details of my strange little life as a collegiate. Omg, I suck so much at being a student. You have no idea. At all. It's not my fault entirely! I mean, I am intelligent, I just... don't seem to do well in academia. For one thing, there's the asthma issue.

It's a source of frustration that I consistently get A's or B's on every piece of work (except in the art department because one one ever gets As or Bs in the art department due to the professors therein being mad like hatters deprived of tea parties), yet my grades are always C's. Due to attendence. Yes, because clearly my attendence is totally affecting my understanding of the subject *points at the work again*. Yep. Clearly. .... I hate the fact this school has an attendence policy, and I have severe asthma.

There are days where walking across campus is not an option, and i haven't mastered teleportation and we aren't a huge enough school to have a campus tram. The profs' general suggestion? Oh, well, give us a thing that says you went to the ER. O.o "I have a nebulizer at home. I don't visit the ER. That's expensive. Much like school." "... Well, could you go see a doctor?" "... Look, here's the empty nebulizer dose." "...Sorry, we can't excuse that absence." "Here's my dr's written affirmation that i do in fact have severe asthma." "Oh dear. That still does not excuse the day in question." .... See, this is why I rock the hell out of online classes- I always have straight As in online classes, but not every class can be an online class.

I'm not asking much- I'm just asking that could they please just work with me about this? Like, oh, I don't know, grade me based on my homework? But whatevs. My second major's professors have been able to understand and help me when my health is an issue. Which would be how my second major is now my only major and I just dropped Major 1 into a minor. It sucks because I was so close to having a double major but... things happen. And it helped my GPA like you wouldn't believe.

Now to explain to my parents that I have to delay graduation by ANOTHER semester. For one class. omfg one class. One class! o.O

This is why I hate school! Not the school parts, but the total random crap that goes wrong with it. If I could just have my friends here, the setting, and have gotten grades that reflected my actual learning curve more often. 

The Worst Classes I've Had So Far:
