    About Me
    I am a college student in the United States double majoring in Technical Theatre and Digital Media. I've filmed small music videos, interviews, theatrical show previews, and prop-making how-to videos. I've been a lighting designer, set designer, sound designer, and stage manager for multiple small performing arts productions and am aiming to work as a theatrical technician for Cirque Du Soleil one day. I currently work at a frozen yogurt place and my university's theatre. I fill any extra time in my life with writing fanfiction and loving my husband who is a total video game nerd like I am. I've been role playing on mostly Jcink (some Proboards) sites for nearly ten years.

    Roleplay Preferences

    LimitsI don't really have a lot of limits. I like dark and gritty topics. I can handle most any level of sex, violence, and language. Suicide is difficult topic to focus on just because of my personal life. Other than that, I'm pretty easy.

    Check out my characters below!

    James McGill

    Better Call Saul / Breaking Bad

    [​IMG]
    "Only the very best... with just the right amount of dirty."
    Confident / Persuasive / Clever / Acquisitive
    Con-Artist / Lawyer / Advisor / Mediator

    After arriving in Pandora's Box in Spring of Year 6, Jimmy did what he does best; adapt to misfortune. The entrepreneur quickly established himself as one of Pandora Town's few independent lawyers, ironically finding it much easier to obtain a successful career in this fantasy land than back home in Albuquerque, the 'Land of Enchantment.'

    James offers his services to a diverse range of people with a diverse range of problems, and isn't ashamed of his high fares. There's so little competition in the market, and he knows enough about supply and demand to know that he can hike up his fees and retain a majority of his clientele. Jimmy currently resides in Westcourt, not far from his office where anyone can schedule an appointment and receive legal (or illegal) assistance… at the right price.



    Services of McGill Law
    ~~Clients~~
    Whether you're a law-abiding citizen or not, Jimmy is your man!


    • As a Lawyer, James can provide clients with legal representation in court for either prosecution or defense, create or destroy criminal evidence, file or tweak with legal documents, select jurors, write wills, take depositions-- the list is endless!

    • As an Advisor, James can help clients work out any financial, moral, and legal issues with a guarantee of complete confidentiality.

    • James also employs a plethora of talented and anonymous resources to help clients get any job done both within and outside of the legal system. As a Mediator, James acts as the middleman, ensuring that discretion and fairness are in play for both his clients and connections when there is a job to finish.

    ~~Connections~~
    If you have a skill or service that Jimmy could add to his list of resources, he will pay a pretty price for it. There are no strings attached, no obligations to keep, and no judgmental background checks. Simply do the job according to what was agreed upon, and you get paid. He offers both one-time and recurring gigs.


    Plotter
    Friends: James isn’t difficult to become friends with. He’s a pretty caring and accepting person, unless you’re a downright idiot or an asshole. He has a childish and playful side that some find charming and many find annoying. Despite his rebellious tendencies and mistake-plagued decisions, his intentions are rarely malicious and he has a big heart buried underneath all that arrogance and bullshit.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lovers: James' previous girlfriend was the hardworking lawyer Kimberly Wexler, but their relationship was not exclusive, at least on his end. He's pretty much accepted the fact that he will never see her again, and has also grown to care greatly about Irene Adler since his arrival in Pandora.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Enemies: It’s never a great thing to have enemies, but it does happen. Dealing with murderers, drug dealers, and politicians comes with its risks, though Jimmy does his best to stay on good terms with everyone. Although he may be at a disadvantage when it comes to physical combat and undying courage, he does know a whole lot of people who can make one's life miserable. He is no stranger to ruining the lives of others.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Clients: These can be anyone in need of the services of a lawyer, in need of advice, or in need of an underground connection to get a job done.
    and
    Connections:These are folks who have a skill or offer a service that can be of use to Jimmy and his clients, both legal and illegal.

    Plot Hooks:
    • Secretary-- James has spent the last three months concealing the fact that he is working solo, and he is quite sick of it. He is more than able to pay for someone to help run his office, schedule appointments, go on coffee runs, deal with the occasional weirdo client and suspicious business partner, and maintain the massive goddamn fish tank in the lobby. (Fulfilled by Tom McNair)
    • Bodyguard-- James has had a gun aimed in his direction one too many times and would really like to find a reliable and trustworthy security partner-- one who'd be paid very well to keep his cheating, lying, devious ass out of both jail and a coffin.
    • Trouble Client -- James helps a lot of people with a lot of problems, and I've love to have him have a particular case that just makes him want to bang his head against his desk.

    Jordan Baker

    The Great Gatsby

    [​IMG]
    "It takes two to make an accident."
    Observant / Poised / Sharp / Skeptical
    Gossip / Flapper / Pro Golfer

    Jordan is a very elegant and nosy woman who just recently graced Pandora Town with her arrival. Despite the utter madness of this world, Jordan has begun to find herself rather charmed by it. One thing is for sure, it is not as agonizingly boring as New York was. The flapper is fast at work getting her new life started and is on the right track to once again becoming wealthy and surrounded by friends.



    Plotter

    Friends: Jordan loves having friends, and she knows how to make each and every one of them feel like her very best friend. However, this is not always the truth. Jordan sees friends mostly as entertainment and a way to keep up social appearances. That doesn't mean she doesn't truly care about them. But Daisy Buchanan was truly the closest thing she will ever have to her best friend.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lovers: Jordan has never really settled down with anyone, preferring to date around and remain open to new possibilities in case she gets bored of one man after a while. This may change, if she meets the right kind of man-- one who isn't as careless as she.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Enemies: Jordan doesn't really have enemies. She likes to dig up and dish out secrets, but this has never got her into any big trouble before. This could change, and she may find herself in some deep dark places if she oversteps her bounds into the realm of Pandora's darkest secrets.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Plot Ideas:

    • Gossip Fodder - Jordan loves gossip and loves knowing folks' dirty little secrets. Whether she keeps them or not is up for bargaining. If you have something to rant about, Jordan will gladly listen and poke and prod for details!
    • News that's Fit to Print - Tagging onto the point above, Jordan would love to have a chance to stir up a public scandal. If you've got an idea for this, let me know! She loves causing harmless trouble with the media, especially for the rich and famous.
    • Fashion and Fame- Jordan is from the 1920's and she knows a bit about what people look good in and that gets those cameras flashing. If you need a model for a photo shoot or an actress in a movie or play, Jordan might oblige, at the right price and as long as all her standards are met
    • Wake-up Call - As you can tell, this chick is full of herself and needs to get her head out of the clouds. I'd love to have someone give her the reality check she needs to help her snap out of the mindset that she deserves everything handed to her, and that she will one day be whisked away back home to New York. It's not gonna happen, sweetheart.

    Qrow Branwen

    RWBY

    [​IMG]
    "They don't give out medals for 'Almost,'"
    Wise / Blunt / Honorable / Cynical
    Huntsman/ Alcoholic / Best Uncle in the Universe

    Qrow is a cocky drunkard who fights for a good cause and has the most badass weapon ever invented (not that he's bragging about his engineering feats.) He is often found drinking, slaying dangerous beasts, and sending funny texts to his niece-- sometimes all at once. If anyone needs a drinking buddy who can tell a good motivational, horror, or hilarious tale, Qrow is your man. And if anyone needs rescuing from some villain's hands, Qrow will gladly volunteer his services as a knight in torn-cloth armor.



    Plotter

    Friends: Qrow doesn't really seek out friends. He's not very tolerable of stupidity and his pessimistic attitude is often off-putting. He can't stand blind optimism or childishness, unless its coming from his niece. Few see his humorous and playful side and even fewer ever see the true damage within his guilty heart. But if you fight for a good cause and don't annoy the shit out of him, he might cut you some slack and even watch your back for you.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lovers: Qrow likes to paint himself as a ladies man, and though he is a charming ruffian, he would never actually seek a long term relationship with someone. He is haunted by unpredictable misfortune and he tries to stay away from people he cares about to protect them from that.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Enemies: If you kick puppies, want to take over the world, or are an all-around asshole-- you're not going to enjoy Qrow's company. End of discussion. He is not a rookie when it comes to decapitating evil beings.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Plot Ideas:

    • Give him something to fight!
    • Give him someone to rescue!
    • And for God's sake, give him a drink!

    Junkrat

    Overwatch

    [​IMG]
    "If at first ya don't succeed, blow it up again!"
    Playful / Impulsive / Insane / Creative / Bellicose
    Pyromaniac / Anarchist / Thief / Mercenary / Scavenger

    On the outside, this greedy little goblin is a big child with a horrible addiction to wreaking havoc. On the inside, he might be something a bit more pained and sinister, but few people hang around (or survive) long enough to catch a glimpse of that side of Jamie boy.

    Junkrat arrived in Pandora on December 1st Year 7 near Horizon and has been scavenging for information, fun, and explosives.



    Plotter

    Friends: Forewarning, Junkrat doesn't really know what the definition of a friend is. Growing up in the post-apocalyptic Outback taught him that anyone who doesn't kill you on sight is probably the closest thing you'll get to a friend, and he's very accustomed to looking out for number one (though he's horrible at it.) That being said, if you can stand his mad babbling, don't immediately light his short and mysterious fuse of a temper, and have something to offer the little gremlin, he will probably consider you a friend.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Lovers: This man-child doesn't really think too deeply about things of the sexual nature besides the occasional crude and horribly inappropriate joke. Still, his embering heart is capable of being softened and his fiery personality calmed. Perhaps this little shit needs a woman to teach him some manners and give him reason to grow up. Needless to say, being a double amputee isn't a commonly desirable quality, and Junkrat knows it. But he is constantly shirtless and has killer abs, so, there's that.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Enemies: It's not difficult for one to find their name on Junk's naughty list, which is basically endless. Jamison is at least a little wary of everyone he meets, because, well, he had to be back in the ruins of Australia where practically everyone was a dirty rotten thief and hardened criminal. While Junkrat is not a rampaging murderer, he is also no stranger to bar fights, spontaneous building demolition, rigging cars into massive rolling bombs, and betrayal and sabotage. Half of the people on his naughty list could have been erased had he simply behaved appropriately around them and kept his volatile emotions under control.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Plot Ideas:

    • Hothead for Hire! - Junkrat will pretty much commit any crime for money, so if you need something (or someone) blown to pieces or stolen/kidnapped, he's your guy. No job too big or small. He's also a great scapegoat and evidence-destroyer if you're brave enough to accompany him on the job, though he'll talk your ear off and might give you a few burns.
    • He needs a parent- With Roadhog gone, this poor guy is back to looking out for himself, and he's not very good at doing that at all. If anyone found the kindness in their heart to tolerate his madness, force him to bathe, share some donuts with him, and keep him out of dire peril, Jamison would be eternally grateful (though he'd never admit it or probably even realize it.)
    • Oooh, SHINY - Junkrat loves shiny and valuable objects, no matter how absurd or outlandish. Is there a relic or treasure that anyone possesses that he could steal, attempt to steal, or that needs to be stolen for someone? Give him a daring quest with an objective!

    Jimmy. Jimjam. Jamesy boy. I saw what you said on Damian Wayne's status there, pal. Prepare for a wedgie.

    Nah, but seriously, would you like to do some kind of plot between these two? As you'll have guessed by now, Lonnie's MO at the moment is terrorising Pandora's corrupt types, and depending on how far Jimmy's rep has spread in the underworld it might be that his name finds his way onto Lonnie's list. If that is the case, we could do something like... I dunno, Ya Boy here could break into poor McGill's house, and we could have us a chase thread? it could even lead to a longer plot where James has to turn to some of his dodgier contacts to try and defend himself against a repeat attack, something like that?

    I dunno, does this sound like a cool idea to you? Anything you object to/would want to do instead?

    @Lonnie Machin
    Hello! Jimmy would probably come up at some point or other as a 'corrupt type,' but he hasn't really done a lot of immoral things in his time in Pandora yet. But they will come. He also has been stalked and tormented by both The Governor and Eurus Holmes since July, so he's pretty covered when it comes to having enemies.

    BUT

    He is somewhat well-known in the underground with the connections he's made, and I think after learning about Anarky's recent habits, he would want to do whatever he could to get on their good side to prevent having a bad experience with them. Is there anything you think could work in that direction for a plot with them?

    @James McGill
    Yeah, I think so! And apologies, didn't realise he'd been hounded so much - I feel kinda bad for the guy now!

    That could work. Lonnie'd pick up pretty quickly that some guy was looking for him, and curiosity would compel him to check the dude out. From there, Jim can offer him whatever deal he thinks might keep this Goddamn Kid off his case, and we could set up a kind of odd informer relationship. After all, James has to also get the cases from companies/bosses taking action against workers for XYZ oppressive thing - a legal injunction on unionising, representation against an unfair dismissal case, etc. I imagine he's also got a serious ear for trouble generally, so if that's a direction you fancy going for then we could do that!

    I guess that brings us to how they meet - would you be okay with Lonnie, er, "dropping in" for a chat in James' home (no destruction of course, that's not cool!) or would you prefer a roughly agreed upon meeting that they both attend - say, at Sundale Park in the dead of night or something similar?

    Yes, odd informer relationship sounds right up his alley! I think the park in the middle of the night would be great! How about December 6th? Would you like me to start it?

    Jeez, I hope he's got a decent de-stress regime sorted out.
    Okay! If you want to, that'd be great - I look forward to it!

    I would absolutely love a thread with Moira O'Deorain and Junkrat! Maybe their first interaction would start off a bit antagonistic? Like she finds him really annoying for whatever reason but they eventually find common ground on....something? I'm honestly terrible at plotting and I'm not sure how it would work but I think it could be really fun!

    I love that Idea @Nyami! Junkrat has been in Horizon for all of December avoiding the snow because what the hell is snow. I saw that Moira comes to Pandora in January. Where is she making her base/lab at? Junkrat could stumble upon it or something and we could see where it goes from there? Maybe they fight, he damages something, she's gonna kill him, but then he offers to fix it and make it up to her if she lets him live?
