Reading RPGs and some of my recent stuff

In case you've never successfully followed an RPG (Role Playing Game -- but not D&D, the slash kind), norah has a great post On Reading RPGs. Conveniently, she's playing in the same game I am, so it's even more appropriate, but it would help with any game.

I'm playing in a very AU game / universe called Sable Knot. It's set in an alternate 1904 England in which there is debt bondage. Of course, my characters couldn't be straightforward masters or slaves, noooo. My Orlando is an aristocratic aesthete who dallied at Oxford and is now obsessed with a slave named Vincent Black. My Billy just met Dominic and neither of them fits into the simple scheme of things.

It's fun to write with in a persona and with a partner, you never know where they're going and how their character will react. Sometimes my characters surprise me, and I love the creative subconscious that lets me do that.

Just a note for Lotrips writers: the iPod was introduced in October 2001, while the LOTR films principal photography wrapped in December 2000. iPods during TTT and ROTK reshoots, but not during principal photography. Yes, I am an Apple geek and bleed in six colors.

God I know what that's like... I've got an RP boy who just seems to want to do the exact opposite of what I tell him to do.

Just wanted to ask you if you get emotional as well if something happens to one of your 'pups'?
