What was your favorite RP for advancing your personal plot and your character's personality? Why?

I'd have to say my favorite was the trip to Castle Zvahl Baileys I took a long time ago with Akuma, Keiro, and Xenedra. Even though the plot we were following was a little far-fetched and nonsensical, it was still fun.

In it, Akuma was supposed to have been created using a demon's essence or something along those lines by a group called "The Dark Hand" and we were going to fix him because his capacity to feel emotion broke somehow (lol my emotion chip is broked can you replace it with a demon's?). It was still fun messing around with the idea throughout the trip as Keiro and Ayvaen did not believe Akuma and kept trying to goad him into accidentally showing emotion. The two were also ridiculously jealous the entire time as Xenedra spent the entire trip, the days before, and the time after worrying about Akuma.

It was just fun Rping fixing Akuma, the trip all the way from the crag of Dem to Zvahl, and the character interactions along the way.

I'd probably have plenty of favourites, but I'll list down this one. It's my first official RP pretty much, because this time I actually thought of a character.

It's when I first RPd as a BLU, alllll the way in Windurst Woods. I was still soo nooobish, but I felt so happy because it was when I felt I was kinda important. Although I was behaving like SUCH an EMO, (lol) it was veeery fun indeed. From all the way in Windurst to Aht Urgahn, it's a nice start to my history in CPM!~

Ahh, my most favourite ones are from years ago, around when Tae first lost her memory, and the RPs that followed that one. It was so much fun, just to hang around and talk and RP and play without having to worry -too- much about storylines and all. Nowadays my RPs are a bit onesided and empty, cause I don't have much of a character left after all that absence of mine. Perhaps someday.. though I've been saying that for a year too.

Probably the RPs when Ayv convinced Vere to date Diamondelle just to keep an eye on her because they thought she was dangerously insane. Suddenly, Vere discovered he wasn't quite as cold and heartless a bastard as he supposed. The time Ayv told Dia what was up and she ran off was particularly amusing.

Dia: WUT /run crying
Vere: Damnit, Ayv.
Ayv: Uh... Did I screw up?
Jae: Don't ask me. Just standin' here. Doo dee doo.

The aftermath of the Bahamut fight was the very first time I got to role play the idea that there might just be more to Reinbach than cursing and sleeping on the street. Joining the Ducal Guard was big for him. Yeah, he did it on a whim, but it was a pretty damn big whim. It was also the point where Reinbach developed into a more solid character, and not just the angsty teenager I had been playing up until that point.

Not long after that was the RP where there was a mexican stand-off with a corsair and Reinbach actually did something kind of ballsy for the first time. He got shot, crawled over to the gun when the corsair was disarmed, and used it to shoot him. It reminded me of the scene at the end of Resevior Dogs where Mr. Orange gets shot.

I think for Wendell my favorite RP was a couple years ago, with Kalysta. We ran into each other in the cathedral in Jeuno. This was during the time that Valitta was having memory issues, and it was only through Valitta that Kalysta and Wendell even knew each other at all. So that random meeting, without Valitta there, gave the two of us a chance to talk and get to know each other better. We spent a good amount of time just talking and learning about each other. Kalysta asked some questions about Wendell growing up in Windurst, and I was able to create and tell several stories of Wendell growing up and learning magic as a Galka in Windurst. It wasn't so much a character plot-driving RP as it was a character defining RP. It was a rare moment where I was in character well enough that the stories just started flowing out, and a lot of background for him got fleshed out that day.

It's hard to decide upon a favourite character development moment for me, but... I suppose if I had to pick... I'd have two moments:

1) Back when I hadn't been in CPM that long and I was trying to tie up all the weird loose ends that Kim had left Psylight holding, there was a day when everyone was playing card games and drinking, and Psy was being all roses and sugar one moment, then horrible the next. Noone really knew how to approach her, or what to do about her. So Ayvaen and she broke into Professor Jinn's study and uncovered the history of his memory/personality-altering spell that had been cast on Xille to make her into the good little girl her parents wanted. After they discovered all that could, Psylight had a resurgence of her natural personality, like the veil was removed from her. The scar she had been so sure she had was just a mental illusion, her name, her history, all came solidly into focus. When they left, Ayvaen burnt down Jinn's residence and the two of them fled. I remember feeling like running from the burning house was symbolic of Psylight's new-found solidarity. It was the first time she was clear-headed and free to act on her own path. She's been the selfish, intolerant bitch Xille ever since that day. ^_^

2) While not exactly a highlighted moment, I wrote a story a while back called "The Colourless Horizon", in which Psylight tried to get back to Nashmau after suffering serious wounds at the hands of Lamia. It was while she was lying face down and losing consciousness that for the very first time, she actually felt regret at being the kind of person she was, and while it wasn't written into the story because she'd never admit it even to herself, it was the first time she realised she hated Ayvaen, because he wouldn't understand how much he meant to her, and that he wouldn't love her back. It was quite sad, I felt like her grip on the things she deeply yearned for was slackening, and that as much as she tried to maintain the persona everyone disliked her for, she was just a silly little girl underneath it all.
