FIRST OFF: INTERNET DRAMA AND YOU! And if this is your first round, you might want to take a look at HOW TO GIVE AND TAKE CRITICISM.

Read that?

Good. Now let's start.


Okay kids, it's one post for the entire game this round! So everyone will be found in here!

New to the game? New characters? Just a little unsure of how you're doing? That's what this is here for, kiddies.

How it works: fill out the provided form (or... make your own but really we're trying to make this easier for you you know) and comment here - others will reply to that comment with what they have to say, and hopefully many lulz and happifuntimes will be had. We're encouraging asking questions if you don't know why or how a character got to the point they're at in game, and we're encouraging constructive criticism that isn't:

"Oh, you're so good bb!"
"I hate you. Diaf."

So make it good! You only get one shot every other month, right? At any rate, before you go off to comment, remember: You will get comments you agree with, and you will get comments you don't agree with; thus is the way of life. Don't take it personally. Don't get angry and start trolling. These people don't have anything against you as a person — unless, uh, they do, which we won't abide by — and we're all here to have fun, right? So let's act like it.

Anonymous comments are allowed, but that does not mean you can start a bitchfest over pretendy funtimes, as we will be freezing any threads that get out of hand. We're not logging IPs and haven't for quite a few months, but if we have to, we will.

Go forth and conquer, Cape and Cowl.

- The Cuckoos are really new so it'd be great if I could get crit on how I'm doing with them-- voice, triplet thing, etc?
- The main thing going on with Alex right now is that little love triangle with Scathach and Scott. eheh.

Having once played the Cuckoos myself, I know how hard it is to work on the three-in-one voice thing. I'd like to inform you of that fact that you're doing it right! I realise that they're still new, but thus far you've managed to do an excellent job with them. Keep going the way you are!

aaahhh THANK YOU! that means a lot :> ♥

Alex needs to be more of a dick 8D Especially to his new girlfriend and maybe Lorna too....

And holy crap you're already amazing me with the Cuckoos. They must be hard to pay. I think you've got their voice pretty well.
Celeste, Mindee & Phoebe Cuckoo.: [three] determinedcutfromacloth on January 22nd, 2010 04:19 am (UTC)
nnghh I need to go back and reread X-Factor and see how he's like when actually in a relationship, as opposed to the post-relationship combustion I'm far more familiar with haha. but Lorna, Lorna, he definitely needs to DO MOAR with her ): so I will! after RL stops eating me up, gggah I completely missed that Lorna post didn't I? ):.

and YAY THANKS THAT IS GOOD TO KNOW. ♥ the only iffy issue I might kinda have at the moment is whether they're being too aloof and inhuman, and I'm never too sure how they interact with their peers, because their level of friendliness seems to vascillate from issue to issue/writer to writer? but, MINOR THINGS!
Alison Blaire: I'll punch your face while I dazzle youidateforsupper on January 22nd, 2010 04:22 am (UTC)
Alex, Moon Knight made her cry )8 But yeah! I'd also like to see maybe some sort of guilt about his new relationship. Because though he does like-like Scatty, Lorna IS still back home and she still is technically his girlfriend. I could see him angsting about that just because he's a Summers and they angst over stuff they can't even control.

OH MAN through your post I was like HOLY GOSH THEY ARE SO IC. The formatting must be a pain, though. Yeah, it does. But they do have their certain loyalities, and it's already showing. Especially to Scott. And their thread with Sam---I could see that really easily, given their own sibling deaths.
Alex Summerscry_andletloose on January 22nd, 2010 04:56 am (UTC)
The guilt is definitely something I'm aware of and going to explore further :D especially with Rachel being uncomfortable and about half the X-Men being pretty ambivalent about it! He'd be like...wait damn this isn't like Mutant X where I was actually broken up with Lorna and macking on an AU!Elektra. (Although I STILL have no idea if he remembers that universe or not? ): )


The formatting's a...worthwhile price to pay for carrying across their consecutive-triplet-speak! It was mostly that or having them triple combo comment all the time which would get really old really fast, I think, so I'm pretty pleased with it? and HUZZAH wrt Scott & Sam!
Alison Blaire: I'M GLOWING BITCHESidateforsupper on January 22nd, 2010 04:59 am (UTC)
Awesome!! I had faith you'd probably pull on that soon enough, and I think since Rachel's the only one who has been AROUND him and Lorna lately, her opinion would probably be such a big one to deal with. Just putting it out there 8D

8D heee.

I LOVE YOUR CHARACTERS. All of them. The girls just make me snicker with glee, and Alex is so spot on. You've not only got his voice down, but even his mannerisms and body language when you're logging. It's great.

The only thing off the top of my head that I can think for you to work on is maybe watching out for dropped threads? I know sometimes that can be a pain in a game that moves so fast - and you're not awful for it, don't get me wrong - BUT THAT'S ALL I CAN THINK OF. YOU ARE JUST THAT AMAZING. Keep at it, dear. ♥
Alex Summers: lopsided smilecry_andletloose on January 22nd, 2010 05:24 am (UTC)
I...do? aslkdflkdjf that is awesome. THANKS BB.

and yes dropped tags! I've been really guilty wrt that lately, I have this whole long list of LJ notifs in my inbox to get to tagging, and I will pick them up once RL stops eating my life /fistpump!

YOU ARE SO GOOD WITH THE CUCKOOS even though man that formatting must be a bitch :(
Alex Summers: :]cry_andletloose on January 22nd, 2010 05:41 am (UTC)
THANKS LEAH ♥ it's actually pretty okay, I just have this...template I cut and paste into all the time.

The Cuckoos are great so far, both character wise and formatting wise.

Also for people-for-Santo-to-mess-with-wise.
Celeste, Mindee & Phoebe Cuckoo.: [three] faint smilescutfromacloth on January 22nd, 2010 02:26 pm (UTC)
excellent! :> also, I'm throwing them at him every chance I get. because I love their Santo-interactions already lol.
Rikku: Bikini ♣ Easy access.chrysophilist on January 22nd, 2010 08:33 pm (UTC)
The Cuckoos seem really awesome so far. I've only read about their canon on the Marvel Wiki, but you seem to really have their personality down so far. I really hope we can get in some CR with them and Scatty some time--I really want to see if she can tell them apart, because I sure can't /sob

AND I THINK YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT ALEX... but all I have in really con crit-y stuff is that he and Scathach need to maybe act more like... a couple. It's totally her fault because she doesn't actually understand relationship stuff, but if Alex pushes for it, or just mentions it, she'll go right along. I don't know if that's how he is in canon and if it isn't, just ignore this! But otherwise, I love him to bits and can't wait to see where our beautiful love-triangle goes.
Celeste, Mindee & Phoebe Cuckoo.cutfromacloth on January 24th, 2010 01:02 pm (UTC)
don't worry bb NEITHER CAN I. I don't even know how scent works- would clones have the same scent? /science fail ):

and I REPLIED THIS VIA PM, YES? :> BUT THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE. also Madelyne's arrival just completely warped the triangle into...goodness knows what, so it should develop their relationship even further?

I'm still coming up with crit for you mumble mumble.
Scathach.: One ∞ All is one and one is all.spadassin on January 24th, 2010 03:10 pm (UTC)
I don't know I'LL GOOGLE IT LATER. If Google says that clones can have different scents... we'll go from there!

YOU DID! And you are very welcome. And between Madelyne, Emma, and Jean, I think Scott has a hexagon going on, and Alex is somewhere around being a square. Maybe a pentagon, with Lorna. GOOD JOB, SUMMERS BROTHERS

Aw it's cool I CAN WAIT.

I actually really like the formatting for the Cuckoos! I'd actually like to interact with both them and Alex more if I can figure out how.
Celeste, Mindee & Phoebe Cuckoo.: speaking & using cerebrocutfromacloth on January 24th, 2010 01:00 pm (UTC)
awesome :) and I'd love to interact more with Catwoman! would she ever need a telepath for...anything?
Catwoman: early morningmeowminx on January 24th, 2010 07:31 pm (UTC)
Maybe? I'll keep it in mind.
