    Watch me man up like nobody else! I'm gonna man up all over myself!

    About MeHey nerds. I'm Anomaly, and I like to role play. I'm a twenty four year old martial arts instructor who writes/illustrates a webcomic on the side. I'm into a variety of different things (as you can tell by my characters), but my favorite stories are either the ones that make you really think, or sell as a comedy but have some really deep, genuine undertones to them. I'm HUGE into musicals ("The Book of Mormon", "Avenue Q", and "Phantom of the Opera" are my favorites), and I'm a big fan of anime and manga ("Fullmetal Alchemist" is my all time favorite, followed by "Death Note" and "Yuri on Ice"). Basically I'm all over the place. Let's plot yo.
    IMPORTANT NOTE (Like, please understand this): Between working over forty hours a week and being responsible for my webcomic (along with having, you know, other hobbies), I AM NOT A FAST POSTER. Please do not expect me to be able to rapid fire, and if something sits without a response from me, please know I'm not ignoring it. I love Pandora with all my heart, but RP is a hobby and I have responsibilities that come first. I may also reply to things based on muse versus when it was last replied to, which I know isn't great, but it helps me actually post, rather than just sit and feel anxious about that one thing that I really owe and then nothing gets done. I probably love you, I probably love our thread, but real life gets in the way sometimes. If you understand that and tolerate my awfulness, then you and I will get along great. Also, I swear a lot, so be ready.

    Roleplay PreferencesI'm pretty much game for just about anything, really. I'm much more into characters building a strong relationship though and progressing through that, rather than quick meet and greets. Character chemistry means a lot to me, and I'm fine with sending our characters on adventures together, as long as they bond in the meantime. I get really into character relationships, and it's kind of a bummer when I put effort into a thread and nothing happens between them. I'm good with combat situations too, as I started off role playing in the "Naruto" fandom and have plenty of experience with that, haha. While I do like doing threads that progress characters along in their arc and relationship to each other, I prefer not to do massive group threads or anything that needs to be done fast (unless it's like a cameo to move a plot along, and then I can just crank it out), just because of my schedule. It stresses me out. I also love chatting with people about where we want things to go, so don't be afraid to PM me or find me on Discord to hash out details!

    LimitsI am a person of few limits, but sexual assault bothers me. Please don't request to do anything like that with my characters, regardless of the scale of it. Anything sexual involving characters who are minors is off limits too (I don't care if it's fictional). On the other hand, I'm fine with my characters having consensual sex (I play Robert Small for God's sake), as long as it's fade to black (which is a site rule anyway, so yay!). I'm fine with blood, violence, gore, death, etc. Go nuts (as long as you run any big injuries with my characters by me first, of course).


    Check out my characters below!

    Robert Small

    Dream Daddy

    [​IMG]

    Robert Small is your typical, middle aged New England dad. His indulges in dad jokes, watches the Game, and goes out and get roaring drunk with his best friend most days of the week. He's usually found with a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a knife in the other. When he's not whittling or watching classic cinema, you can find him out patrolling the dark parts of town, hunting the supernatural beings that go bump in the night...
    Wait, that's not what normal New England dads do? Well, I guess he isn't that normal then. Robert Small is known as the "bad dad", and it's for a reason. He has a gruff, bad boy exterior, and is more often than not found hanging out at the local bar. He'll tell you an elaborate lie for a cheap thrill, but no one values comfortable silence more than him. If you're up for a drunken adventure, he's the guy to tag along with, but you better keep up. It's not all alcohol and bullshit stories with him though. Robert has a long history of trying to find happiness the wrong way. After his wife died and his daughter left him, he realized he never knew what was really important until it was too late. Now he thinks he's failure of a man and beyond repair. Someday he'll have to deal with that, but for now, why not busy himself with chasing ghosts and taking shots? Also, his Boston terrier Betsy was brought into Pandora with him and is available for petting.
    Currently in Pandora: With spring came an attempt at sobriety, and Robert is currently making a conscious effort to do better by himself. He's quit drinking and is attending therapy, but it's a very fragile process. In June he'll relapse, but then get back on the ball. He was also forced to leave Misty Hollow when the barrier collapsed, and will be staying in Cascade Bay for an undetermined amount of time.

    Rebecca Bunch

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

    [​IMG]

    Sheeeee waaaaassss working hard at a New York job. Made her dough, but it made her blue. One day she was crying a lot and so she decided to move to West Covina, California! Brand new pals and new career! It happens to be where Josh lives, but that's not why she's heeeerrrreee!
    Okay, so the situation is a lot more nuanced than that. Meet Rebecca Bunch. She's a brilliant attorney, a forward thinking feminist, and a hopeless romantic. And by hopeless romantic I mean she once completely uprooted her life to move to a town to be with a guy that she dated once as a teenager at summer camp who also happened to have a girl friend at the time. Yeah. She is the titular "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend", but again, the situation is more nuanced than that. Her desperate need to feel loved and wanted comes from a deep seeded sense of loneliness and sadness, one that she kept trying to fill with romantic love. After a series of events, from moving to West Covina to be with Josh, to having him leave her at the altar, to a complete meltdown and suicide attempt, Rebecca finally realized that the void in her life couldn't be filled by another person. She was recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, and has discovered that therapy has offered her a new way to approach her life. She's trying to be more conscious of her high strung emotions and often impulsive behavior, and is trying to find genuine happiness. It's bound to be an uphill battle, and she still has moments of slipping into old habits. However, those who befriend Rebecca can find a genuine, loving person, and it's her friends that Rebecca will depend on most.
    Oh, and she also imagines her life as a series of musical numbers. And it's contagious. So look out for that.
    Currently in Pandora: Rebecca has just arrived in Pandora. After a period of intense shock, she'll finally try to get her life together by opening Bunch and Associates Law Firm. She can't stand to be lonely for long, and it's only a matter of time before she gets into some shenanigans in attempt to connect with the people around her.

    RK800 "Connor"

    Detroit: Become Human

    [​IMG]

    This is Connor, the android sent by CyberLife. Connor is a RK800 model of CyberLife android, designed specifically to aid the Detroit Police Department in finding and apprehending deviant androids (androids who seem to have developed “free will” and have rebelled against their programming). As an android, Connor is programmed to work toward a certain task (finding the source of the deviancy problem and dealing with it, in his case), and is inherently designed to do everything in his power to accomplish it. He is a machine, and therefore should not experience emotion or thoughts of his own. Key word; shouldn’t. An android revolution has broken out in Detroit, and the more Connor investigates the deviants, the more disturbing behavior he begins to exhibit. Lately he’s been choosing empathy over logic, sparing androids rather than destroying them and trying to connect to his human partner rather than just deal with him. Connor’s software has become more and more unstable lately, and Connor knows it. It makes him feel unsure, lost, and these are all feelings he should not be having in the first place. He had yet to truly give in to deviancy, but he’s one strong emotional push away from having to make the biggest choice of his existence. Is he a man, or is he a machine?
    Currently in Pandora: Connor has just arrived and is lost. There is no deviant uprising here, and no CyberLife to give him a new mission or deactivate him. He is a machine without a purpose, but his programming will draw him to something similar. He will eventually become involved with law enforcement, working with the City Watch in Pandora Town. For the first time in his life though, what he does is up to him.​

    Do I see.... THE dreamiest daddy of all of them????

    Okay, hear me out, I am, throwing this ball of self-drag at ya, because, those two, have actually quite a lot in common. Like, let's meet at a bar, start with a friendly drinking competition because "I bet I can chuck more than you" and then go cryptid hunting because why the eff not right?
    Super drunk Hanzo being like "y'can't kill a beast with a knife, yo uknw." and Robert just going "oh you watch me."
    sorry if I'm all over the place but how does that sound? :>

    @Hanzo Shimada Heyyyy!!! I'm SO sorry I didn't reply to this sooner! I've been in a funk lately that caused my Pandora-life to suffer, and then I got hit in the face with Robert muse, but Robert muse only, and yeah. But I'm here and HOO BOY YES do I want to plot with Hanzo!!

    Yes yes yes these scruffy sad old video game men need to hang out. This plan sounds perfect. These two will probably be on the verge of alcohol poisoning by the end of the night if they try to outdo each other, so OF COURSE they need to go cryptid hunting afterward. ("Seriously you're mocking my knife when your plan is to shoot it with an arrow how stupid is that- Oh shit you're really good.") Let's do it!

    Would Hanzo be in Misty Hollow at any point at all? Robert lives there, and that's probably the best spot for drunk cryptid hunting. If not, I'm sure I could figure something else out too. Any dates that work best for you too? Robert arrived mid-September and has sporadic threads until mid-October, so let me know what works for you, and I can cross check it.

    @Anomaly OHH PLEEASE IT'S ALRIGHT don't worry :'D I totally get that ~

    AND YEEEES I'm glad you're on board with this :3c drunk cryptid hunting it is!
    Hanzo currenlty hangs around in Pandora Town, so I hope it'd be no problem for him to make a trip down to Misty Hollow (?) because yes that'd be a totally safe and good idea.
    Late September and the mayority of October are free for mee and should work totally fine :>

    Sweet! This all sounds good to me! Would you mind starting it? I'm playing catch up right now, so I'm not sure when I'd be able to get to it otherwise. If you can't, I totally understand and can do it myself, but it may take a while. I'm looking forward to seeing how these guys interact!

    @Alfred Pennyworth
    Okay so I got two ideas for this grumpy (not so) old granddad that I thought might be quite fun, but let me know what you think!

    Kids on your Lawn
    Okay. Anarky knows Batman, and he knows of Bruce Wayne, but what he doesn't know is that they're in fact the same person. He ALSO doesn't know that Broose has a goddamn SAS man for a butler - and this brings me to my thread idea! Lonnie's been breaking into Corporate CEO types' houses/businesses and fucking with them for what he considers their crimes to be - and Bruceman currently runs Stark Enterprises, unless I'm totally out of the loop.

    Now, Lonnie knows Bruce ain't bad, as Corporate Scum™ goes, but he'd still likely want to let the guy know that he's being watched in case any examples of Stark Enterprises being a bad employer show up. To this end, I could have Lonnie break into poor old Broose's Hoose (if @Chen was okay with it, of course!) and search out a Mister Wayne who wasn't in, only to be confronted by the world's most lethal manservant. A running fight could then ensue in which Alfred convinces the unannounced visitor he's, er, overstayed his welcome?

    Old Soldier Pals
    You may have one of these already, actually, but I'd love for Alfred and Chief Judge Hershey to find common ground over their soldier-ish careers! Ya Boi would actually remind her a lot of Dredd, who was her friend back home - it's the no-nonsense attitude that does it, as well as the gruffness - and I feel like a friendship could develop from it.

    As to how they'd meet for this to even happen... yikes. Well, I dunno what Alfred's daily routine is, but Hershey tends not to get out of the office too often - although she does go to some of the more "secure" drinking places in Silverpool when she absolutely has to get away from work. Perhaps they could meet there? What do you think?

    @Mako Ayyyy thanks for dropping in! I was actually thinking that Alfred needed more non-Batfam threads, so your timing is perfect!

    Kids on your Lawn
    Yaaaasss, this would be great! I've been itching to do a good combat scene with Alfred, so I'm 100% down for this idea (Damn kids these days, with their anarchy and breaking and entering). It'll be pretty damn entertaining to watch someone break into Batman's house, only to be chased out by Alfred. XD
    Old Soldier Pals
    I actually don't have anyone to fill this role yet, so this would be fantastic! I think the two would find a mutual respect pretty easily, and it'll be good for Alfred to have someone his own age to chat with (yes he knows Bruce isn't that much younger than him in Pandora but he's still his boy shush). It'll also be interesting since Hershey is very much involved with the Pandora justice system, while Alfred is still getting used to this vigilante business, so cue interesting chats about the crime and justice. You're right that they might have trouble crossing paths given their jobs and all, but I think a secure, not-super-scary bar in Silverpool would do the trick! I think it'd be great!
    When were you thinking you wanted to do these? Alfred has the usual Batfam drama going on, but he should be available for this plot at almost anytime. Did you want to try and squeeze it in end of November, or did we want to wait until after the season change? I'm also game to do both at the same time if you are! Maybe I start one and you start one?

    AYYY

    I'll pop Lonnie to the side just for now, as he's, um, a little swamped, but that's okay - I guess if nothing else I now don't have to tell you whether or not either of these threads take place before the season change, incidentally, whoops :'D

    SO. By way of apology, I'll be glad to start both threads! With regards to the Hershey/Alfred meetup, what date would be good for you? Hershey isn't exactly over-burdened in December, so any date's good as far as she's concerned.

    @Greed and @Ling Yao

    Don't think I have to say more than that, do I? Greed and Ling meeting in separate bodies, there's a lot of potential here right out of the gate, even if I don't really have any particular ideas for a thread in mind, I think we're almost obligated to do something with these two =V

    Ling Yao and @Greed
    Yaaaassssssss!!! We need this! I totally want to see what will unfold with the two being able to interact outside of Ling's body, so I will give you all the threads.
    Greed is in Cascade Bay, owning a bar under an alias, right? (I may have done a little creeping on him while I was writing my app, oops.) I'm planning to have Ling travel a bit as a vagabond once he settles, so maybe he goes to Cascade Bay and senses his abnormal Qi? He'd definitely pinpoint him as a Homunculus and want to confront him about it. Then once the truth comes out that he's Greed, Ling can have an "oh shit" moment since he was pulled immediately before he was about to become Greed himself. Ling will definitely want to know as much about his as he can so he can learn more about the Philosopher's Stone (and also morbid curiosity about what might've been his own fate), which Greed can react to however you want. I'm thinking that maybe Ling confronts Greed in his bar (because if any fifteen year old can sneak into a bar to do something other than drink, it's Ling), and we see how things unfold? Does that sound like something that would work for you?

    @Robert Small

    Hmmm

    So from what I can see here, Robert likes the supernatural and wants some sort of daughter figure, right? In that case, why not both? Menma just arrived here and seeing how she's a ghost, that'll probably peak some sort of interest in him or at least getting him on his toes. I MEAN- WHY FIND THE SPOOKS WHEN THE SPOOKS CAN FIND YOU~

    That and the fact that Robert can see her out of all the NPCs in Pandora, she'll likely be very interested and curious about him too. Hell, if Robert still goes out Cryptid hunting here, she'll definitely want to tag along.
