    The Life of Rani

    Plot with me!

    About MeHey all! I'm Rani and I totally need to interact with and plot with more people around here. :) I'm 30 going on 31 in January, and have two wonderful kitties who I will talk to people about until they get sick of hearing about them. I love video games (especially rpgs), comics, anime, world building, coding, writing (don't we all) and have recently gotten into more tabletop gaming too. I love running big plots and have a lot of grandiose ideas. Though I have a bit more trouble coming up with smaller-scale character-centric plots.

    I'm also your Plots & Events coordinator and the Technical Coordinator here on Pandora, which means that I sometimes get so wrapped up in those projects I totally forget to reply to my rp threads for forever.

    About My PlotsI like a broad variety of plots. Everything from adventure to mystery to just fluffy silliness. My favorite sorts involve parent-child relationships, horror/spooky, and things revolving around obsession/possession and such. I also adore the more whimsical and weird too.

    What you can expect from me:
    • Short and long posts! I don't focus on matching post length, so you might get something from me ranging anywhere between 200 - 800 words. Though I tend to lean more towards shorter posts these days.
    • Moderate to slow replier. Ideally, I like to reply to threads within a week. But recently I've been hovering more around every other week, to one reply a month. I'm trying to do better, but if you rp with me, please feel free to kick me if I'm replying only once a month. If a thread is moving at a pace of one post a month, I'll likely end up dropping it.
    • Group threads. I love group threads, but only if they have no post order and keep moving. If somebody doesn't post for a few days, I personally have no qualms about skipping them to keep things progressing forward.
    • Gradual building of relationships. I like to take time building up relationships. I'm 100% okay with skipping right to basic acquaintances or casual friends, but I like to see anything more meaningful than that build up over time.
    • Threads with direction. I'm not so good with meet and greet threads, unless there's some kind of hook to grab on to.
    • Minimal Planning and Spontaneity. I'm kind of burnt out on plots where every step is pre-planned to the extreme. I highly value spontaneity and surprises. A general framework for a plot is cool, but I like some flexibility in how things actually play out.

    LimitsI don't really have any limits! If I'm considering a plot revolving around darker subject matter, I will be more selective about who I run those plots with. But otherwise, just about anything is on the table.

    Check out my characters below!

    Aloy (18, hunter, primitive world with advanced tech)
    Bart Allen (Physically 15, speedster, superhero, Impulse)
    Hiccup Haddock (18, Dragon Trainer, Inventor)
    Sakura Kinomoto (12, Magical Girl)

    Aloy


    Horizon: Zero Dawn

    [​IMG]
    Aloy is a powerful woman, unafraid to speak her mind, and incredibly self-sufficient. She's only 18, but she had to learn how to survive on her own in an unforgiving environment and as such is a skilled hunter, warrior, tracker, and all around wilderness survivalist. And though she comes from a primitive society of humans, she is familiar with advanced technology, and is unafraid to look outside the box and discover something new. She is adventurous, curious, and has no qualms about showing someone how much she despises them.

    She also has what's essentially a mini computer on her ear that lets her scan the environment, gather information, and do other stuff.

    Plotting Details


    BART ALLEN


    DC Universe

    [​IMG]
    Bart is something else, and not someone who is easy to forget. He's a 15-year old (at least physically) superhero called Impulse who is still learning the superhero ropes. He is a speedster, able to surpass the speed of sound. He has no sense of danger or consequences, has a very bad habit of jumping into things without thinking, has no attention span and no patience. Some would probably peg him for having ADHD. However, having grown up in a virtual playground, he is incredibly detached from reality. Bart, alarmingly enough, views the world as another video game; a very boring one.

    But Bart is a good kid, knows the difference between right and wrong. He just gets sidetracked very easily, and is hyperactive, excitable and extremely naive. For all the messes he gets into, or how much he can annoy other people, he never intends to. Bart is very genuine in everything he does. The world just looks very different to him than it does to most other people.

    Plotting Details


    HICCUP HADDOCK III


    How to Train Your Dragon

    [​IMG]
    Hiccup is an 18-year old dragon rider,
    inventor, and all around dork with a dry sense of humor. He's a skilled dragon trainer, and he'll be overjoyed to discover all kinds of new species in Pandora. Though none will ever be closer to him than his best friend and partner, Toothless. He's a natural leader with a great deal of patience, and he lacks the stereotypical viking demeanor that many might have expected of someone of his background. Hiccup prefers using his head in place of violence. Toothless, however, has no such qualms (though he'll stay the killing blow on Hiccup's command).

    Plotting Details


    SAKURA KINOMOTO


    Cardcaptor Sakura

    [​IMG]
    Sakura Kinomoto is just a child of 12, but she has great potential as a magician and can cast spells using a set of magical cards.

    She is an energetic, cheerful, and naive girl. Very childish and in some ways, very much unprepared for the cruelties of the world. However, Sakura has been through her own hardships and has found an inner strength along with her power. But all in all, she is only 12 and upon finding herself in Pandora, suddenly finds herself completely alone without family or friends besides her cards.

    Sakura is very easy to make friends with. She is trusting, gullible, innocent, friendly, empathetic, and cares about friends, acquaintances, and strangers. Of course, she'll bond more easily with children, but for Sakura, age does not truly matter when it comes to finding someone she enjoys spending her time with.

    She's joined in Pandora by her mentor/guardian/animal sidekick, Kero-chan (or Cerberus, if you use his full name), who is an egotistical, loud, selfish glutton who cares deeply for Sakura.

    Daniel and Danny: I could see Daniel learning some from Danny, and also trying to help him out, if you would be up for such an idea.

    Daniel and Bart Allen: Given they both have superspeed, they should probably end up meeting, don'tcha think? I mean, they both have the same ability of Superspeed, although Daniel doesn't use the Speed Force, and his discovery of such existing, and subsequent attempts to harness it would be interesting, if you would be up for such an idea.

    Danny & @Daniel
    What did you have in mind for Daniel learning from Danny? Danny teaching him some martial arts? I could definitely do that sort of thing, though it would be in a more casual way, since Danny isn't really in a good head space at the moment to really focus on taking on dedicated students and stuff like that.

    Bart & @Daniel
    I'm always happy to toss Bart at another speedster. There's not too many of them in Pandora at the moment, and just having someone he can speed talk with would make him super happy. :p Daniel won't really be able to learn to harness the speed force without some kind of outside/technological help, since it's a connection speedsters are born with or given through extraordinary circumstances (which likely would never happen in Pandora). But regardless of that, Bart is certainly happy to help him try. If they get really super reckless/dangerous, he could even try and just run Daniel straight into the speed force (which could be very bad for Bart...and potentially Daniel, depending on what his max speeds are).

    Can you set up the topic with Bart Allen? Don't worry. We can figure something out about the Speedforce. Alright? As to Danny teaching Daniel it would be more of his acrobatics Daniel needs to learn not so much fighting though he would want some lessons.

    okay i have been meaning to throw some ideas bart's way since the stuff we'd talked about with him and killer frost never worked out way back when SO

    @Bart Allen & Sara Lance

    sara's actually pretty well acquainted with (her world's version of) barry allen and iris west -- in fact she was at their wedding shortly before being pulled into pandora, so meeting barry's grandson would be vaguely... surreal?? although she is gradually getting used to meeting descendants/ancestors of her friends, being a time traveler and all

    ANYWAY i also thought it might be fun to toss them together just 'cause sara's the type who'd generally make an effort to look out for bart. when it comes to kids, she likes to play herself up as the ~cool aunt~ type who doesn't take responsibility too seriously, but like, the second he got into trouble she'd step in to pull him out of it. i know, i know, good luck with that, sara!

    but yeah if bart needs any more helpful adult figures in his life, particularly ones acquainted with some version of his relatives, this might be a fun opportunity for that!

    Howdy! I think @Aloy and @Oerba Yun Fang could possibly form a friendship (or rivalry) seeing as how they're both hunters and warriors who have taken on all sorts of deadly creatures from their respective games? :D

    As for how they might meet, I have a few ideas:
    • I'm planting Fang down in Horizon and would love to actually RP her arriving at the settlement for the first time, maybe getting a brief tour of the place. I'm not sure if that's something Aloy would be willing to do, since it's a little bit like babysitting. Not that Fang is anything like a baby.
    • Fang's summon, Bahamut, is a flying guardian that looks sort of like a giant bird/dragon thing with machine-ish components. Aloy might mistake him for a hostile robot and attack him, and Fang has to step in and say "pls stop"?
    • There's always the easy "they hunt the same monster" angle. I'm sure there's at least one beast out there that neither of them can handle alone.
    Anyway, let me know if any of this interests you!

    I'd absolutely love to do something with this. Right now in Pandora, but doesn't really have too many influential adult figures in his life. And having somebody he could turn to, and somebody with some sort of connection to his family (even if it's a family from another universe!) would be something he'd low-key appreciate.

    Maybe we could do something where she sees this red streak blurring around Pandora and just kind of assumes it's Barry, until they actually manage to meet? Maybe even in the middle of some kind of fight or disaster or something.

    Aloy & @Oerba Yun Fang
    Oh man, I would love love love to see these two interact. They're definitely on the same wavelength! So, I'm thinking a mix of your "attack Bahamut" and "hunting the same monster" thing might be a good start. Aloy is unlikely to attack an unknown machine on sight -- not without knowing it might actually be a danger. She knows that not all machines are inherently dangerous, and some might even have an important purpose and shouldn't be disrupted..

    BUT I was imagining that maybe she's on a hunt (she's part of a Hunter's Guild type of thing in Pandora), ends up in some kind of bad situation and Fang can swoop in on Bahamut to like snatch her up at the last second or something. And Aloy would absolutely go on the offensive if she doesn't realize what is going on. Could start with some fun tension.

    What do you think?

    I think that sounds like a wonderfully high-octane way to kick off their meeting!

    What's your availability look like this season? Fang arrives in Pandora on Dec. 4th and settles into Horizon on the 10th.

    Ok! Then I'm thinking sometime in mid-late December? Taking place somewhere in the Arid Lands? It might make more sense for you to start this one, but I can kick it off as well if you like. :D

    @Bart Allen & Sara Lance

    ooh, i love the idea of sara just kind of assuming he's barry before they meet face to face! bart's in cascade bay, right? so maybe something like a storm endangering some of the residents or some pirates trying to hold a couple of shops up would work well for a setting -- although i imagine bart can get around pandora pretty quickly, so if you'd rather set it somewhere else i'm happy to work with that too! sara has her timeship, so she can be wherever, whenever.

    are there any particular dates that do (or don't) work for you?

    Matt and @Danny Rand

    Heeeey, so...guess who's not dead!

    Matt and Danny had a weird relationship in the show, since they basically alternated between friendly and fighting depending on their circumstances. However, given how things went the last time they saw each other, I figured Danny miiiight want to know that Matt survived.

    Thankfully, Matt met a healer like a minute or two after he came into Pandora, so that's not an issue! :D

    As for what they can do, the natural thing would be to do something fighty, since that's what draws men like that together in the first place. Matt isn't anywhere near being in the headspace for being Daredevil, but that doesn't mean he won't defend himself. Otherwise, they can get together and talk about how weird and tragic life can be.

    I've got the thread up here! Let me know if you need anything changed!

    Bart & @Sara Lance
    Nope, I don't have any winter threads yet, so Bart is almost totally wide open. He'll have something in mid-January, not sure when yet, so let's avoid that time period.

    Did you want to get this thread started? A storm in CB sounds great to me!

    @Matt Murdock
    I'm sorry, but I actually just dropped Danny! He sadly has been a struggle for me lately, but thanks for your interest! Hopefully you'll get another Danny at some point. :)

    If @Sakura Kinomoto is possibly going to be in Misty Hollow, then it'd be fun if she and Ami ran into each other at some point, especially if Sakura can sense magic within people. Ami would definitely want to make sure she doesn't run into trouble alone in the woods or around town.
