[at some unspecified time at night (because somebody doesn't have a normal sleep schedule), Ramona Flowers is sneaking into the dorm room with all the ninja skills she has in order to be as quiet as possible

she is, like, 99% successful]

[meanwhile at the dorms, a half-pirate and some girl who managed a +3 lockpicking skill in her bag of tricks are trying to break in to "their" room]

This lock is way more sophisticated than the others. You'd think they were worried about unsavory people trying to break in...

Criticism, comments or query post. I will try to level up the epicness as needed.
the_ex_in_xp: (Symbolic of relationship cockblock)
So I've been sporadic in the past week or so because life has generally been full of things, and it probably won't clear up until the end of the first week of August. Or later, depending on how moving and internet transferring works out... So I'm going to be on hiatus until that's over.

However, I still want to engage in some kind of CFUD related stuff, which means question meme time! Ask me about relationships, future plans for CR, anything you want and I'll ask you stuff in return. If you don't have anything to ask still comment! Because I may need distractions and I WILL GIVE YOU A SURPRISE. I don't know what it is even, that is why it would be an awesome surprise...
the_ex_in_xp: (I'll find a loophole THEN I'll kill you)
Kuroko Tetsuya ([personal profile] unnoticeaball) | Activity(ies): talk about past relationships/being abandoned; get Kuroko to be more noticeable
Hino Eiji ([personal profile] regretnooothing) | Activity(ies): talk about Eiji's suicidal tendencies; "bedninja" (pretend Camp put you there) three people
Brianna ([personal profile] fayzedandconfused) | Activity(ies): talk about friends; talk about family; talk about not being fuck ups!!!
Leo Baskerville ([personal profile] gavehimhead) | Activity(ies): post something embarrassing on the network; talk about Leo's headmonster; ninja training!!

So this is the counseling list for Ramona and it looks super fun, so help me help you (probably not ICly help you, Ramona is sucky at actual help) by letting me know if/what you want to do. Do you want funny? Serious? To tag you at a certain time, be out in a specific post so you can tag me? Do a co-post for activities? Maybe have a specific goal in mind that you want me to aim for or general gist of where you want things to go? I will do whatever you like to make this as fun as possible.

Right now she's kind of even more gun-shy about doing counselor duties ('sup Brianna), but I will make this work and if your camper is also against this we can plan out circumstances that will keep them from blowing it off.

My hours are kind of terrible this summer but I will try to switch around schedules for you and I'm always down for backtagging. Just let me know!

My computer has decided to blue screen of death so hiatus until I get it fixed. Sorry. :(

[today, in a relatively secluded part of the dorms]

Are your eyes closed? Because this is part of the surprise, and it won't work if you're cheating with that squinty not-really-closed trick...
the_ex_in_xp: (Only species that observes Shark Week)
So Ramona hit 6k haha balance what is that and I haven't done this thing in over a year + lots of stuff happening = an anything goes meme. Relationships, some ecards or otherwise, dumb art, headcanon stuff, songs she thinks fits your character, idk stats card. Anything pretty much goes! Multiple questions also okay because I like to ramble and stuff.

First order of business! I'm at the extended family so that + holiday flu + LJ being a butt = extremely spotty for the next week or so. Please bear with me.

Second order of business, Ramona has been channeling her issues with enforced holiday cheer. This means there are people she is bribing to continue being friendly with her via Christmas gifts, as is the American way. You can just assume they've been delivered off screen or we can thread stuff out if you would find it amusing/heartwarming/hilariously awkward.

Presents go here )

This is for my counselees, hereby listed as:

Cesare Borgia
Okita Sougo
Rachel Berry
Red Arrow
Sollux Captor

Okay dudes I am super excited to be that counselor that gives out terrible advice and annoys you so expect me to hunt you down when I can and back tag for as long as necessary. I'm usually around after 6 PST (8+ GMT) and can thread late into the night. If you are an early bird I will clear up time in my schedule for you! Help me help you help each other or something.

The other thing is if you have Ramona and you have a serious dark issue you don't want coming to light...she won't poke! She's very hands off once it looks like the person doesn't want to talk about said subject (being the exact same way), so if you do want some counseling on that let me know so we can figure out a means to circumvent our mutually recalcitrant characters. Also, don't expect good advice or genuine help, but I'm here for hilarious bad decisions and letting you be as unhinged as you like (you wacky kids with your dating a terrorist, sending a rival to a crack house for a fake audition, or insert sister joke) and saying terrible things with no judging--okay minor judging but not in any way that would offend your morals.

If none of these times or offers sound like they could work, drop me a line here and I will also make a counseling post in my journal if you just can't do the timing or talk through any issues you may have. I REALLY WANT TO THREAD WITH YOU GUYS. ♥
the_ex_in_xp: (Large order of...prognosis negative!)
[from the most dangerous question ever asked, good thing you can't see nineteen-year-old Ramona's expression looks like she just agreed to step on a landmine] you mean a girl to boy thing or, like, as a dating thing in general?
the_ex_in_xp: (Symbolic of relationship cockblock)
Ramona passed 5k and I haven't done this in forever (plus I really want to avoid more work) so relationship/questions/free for all meme.

Please distract me. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease.
the_ex_in_xp: (Know how to have an adult relationship)
[following the really long talk of dumbassery and feelings]

...well, her being a giant bitch is kind of distracting.

Edgar Wright thought a great way to pimp the Scott Pilgrim movie was by making an official music video. Here I am riffing on that idea shamelessly by collecting the Scott Pilgrim music videos that don't suck*

Pimping for the MTV attention span fan )

* accounts of sucking are up to individual interpretation. The loosest one is at least nobody's slow angsting to an Evanescence song...
the_ex_in_xp: (Default)
Age: 24
Height: 5'6" or around there probably 5'8½" if we go by the movie
Weight: Normal, I am not fat Knives Chau!
Medical Info: Classified.
Eyes: Giant--I mean. Probably brown.
Hair: Varies! She dyes it regularly and the book likes to mention how it's in black and white so YOU CAN'T TELL WHEN IT CHANGES SUCKERS.
Physical traits: Looks pretty average but a trained fighter could see she's at least capable of swinging giant hammers and running around.
Rating: AWESOME!

What's Okay To Mention Around Him/Her: 4th wall stuff is cool as long as we don't really press the "Scott cheated on you" thing because we like to be dorkily happy circa early volume five.
Abilities: She can access subspace/hammer space and has an inventory of weapons that are D&D stat enhancing like her hammer is +2 against girls. Apparently also has the ability of PICKING THE WORST SIGNIFICANT OTHERS EVER.
Notes for the Psychics/Magically or Spiritually sensitive: Canon says her space is a darkly lit kind of creepy place to be since Gideon still has his claws in her. She seriously does not like people entering it, even if she does it to other people sometimes. Yeah, hypocrite. Hearing her thoughts will get you the general buzz of regular thinky ideas.
Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc?: Yes, just let me know.
Hugging/kissing/other non-violent physical contact: She's pretty chill with physical contact! Get her a little drunk and she's practically cuddly. But still going to shut down anything that would constitute as "cheating" on Scott. That one makeout session was just a phase.
Maim/Murder/Death: Only if it's funny and we talk beforehand.
Cooking: She's a passable cook, nothing amazing though.
Other: Scott Pilgrim is a magical weird world so if there are references to exposition boxes or little music trills that's just how their universe works.

the_ex_in_xp: (Eloquent understatement)

Character: Ramona V. Flowers
Series: Scott Pilgrim
Age: Classified...okay, 24
Job Title: Ninja Delivery Girl
Canon: Everybody makes bad decisions sometimes. Wearing white after Labor Day, drinking from an expired milk carton, dating someone who ends up being a jerk. Except Ramona Flowers's bad decisions have joined together to form a League of Evil Exes, dedicated to ruining her future love prospects. Enter our 1P protagonist, Scott Pilgrim, who agrees to take on all comers for the chance to hold hands with her and possibly get past second base. But in a manga and video game inspired world, where the fourth wall is casually ripped asunder, defeating someone turns them into coins, being vegan gives you psychic powers, and "love is a battlefield" can be more than a Pat Benatar song, regular courtship rules (or laws of physics) don't always apply.

Aloof and sometimes inscrutable, Ramona is trying to escape from her past. Taking a job as a courier for was the best way to employ her skills at running away from everything. It also allowed her to utilize the special ability of skating through a subspace found in other people's subconscious, thus enabling her to become the woman of Scott's dreams since she uses his brain space to make deliveries (it's not like he was using it). At first glance, she seems like the typical mystery woman. She dyes her hair a different color each month and has mastered the art of droll witticisms without giving too much of herself away. The fast way to a friendship with her is often based on mutual hate for something, and she can be horribly blunt in telling you how things suck. However, despite all of Ramona's defenses there is someone who is trying to grow into a better person and manages to care about the people she lets in. You just have to put up with a lot of shit to get there first.

Sample Post:

I've gotten a lot of prank deliveries before, and, hey, it doesn't really matter to me as long as I get a signature. But when I read "T. P. Cornholio, Bunghole CFUD" I expected MTV potheads, not actual corn. Or...actual holes either. I know this is in armpit of wherever, but I thought America kept their subspace roads free of potholes. Oh, wait, I misread. The hazard signs say "caution: plotholes." Ugh, either way these things are hell on my rollerblades. If I wanted to wander around aimlessly and ask questions about why I'm here I'd go back to my graphic novel about twenty-something slackers.

Look, can someone just sign for this? Anyone with opposable thumbs and attached limbs will do. I'd love to stay and, uh, examine your many haystacks or hear the story about why there's a squid on your silo, but I'm on the clock. Don't worry about me being an inconvenience. You just point me to the exit and I'll find my way out. I have a lot of experience with leaving the scene...

Really guys. I know a stranger passing through might be a big deal here, but I'm not up for explaining to my bosses that I was late because I had to finish a bonus stage full of robot cows and zombies. Especially when zombies don't even give you bus fare for defeating them. Not that I need to use the bus. Here, the first one to tell me how to get out and I'll give you the package. No charge, my treat. I can already tell you it's CDs, perfect for drowning out the chirping of crickets and having those wild square dancing parties. Need more convincing? How about I'll show you mine if you show me yours. And as you can see they're in pristine condition.

...okay, someone has a sick sense of humor when they decided to trap me in a farm with Toto's "Turn Back" and Kansas's "Point of Know Return." American ballad rock, great. That's not an attempt to break my spirit at all. Well, I guess if I'm going to level grind out of this place I should go with the title that doesn't suck at homonyms.

I have a feeling we're not listening to Kansas anymore, Toto.
