Main Characters

Post by capnnerefir » Sun Aug 31, 2008 1:41 pm

I don't role play Animorphs, but if I did, I wouldn't want to be one of the main characters. Why? Not enough creative liscens. All the major characters (and even most of the minor ones in the series) already have set personalities and predictable patterns of behavior. I wouldn't want to be stuck in a role like that.

Yeah, it would suck to have to be in character as someone you didn't even like, or something. Plus, if you could be yourself, you could have your own chosen morphs and such.

You all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans,
To take it

This is pretty much the reason I've never RP'd any Animorphs threads before. There's just not much room to squeeze custom-made characters into the canon without ripping it apart- and while fanfiction is fun and all of that, the real draw to RPing is the character creation.

I've played shape-shifter characters in RP's that have nothing to do with Animorphs. =P But that's neither here nor there, I s'pose.

That said, I've been kind of tempted to make an RP where the Animorphs are NPCs and everyone plays one of the Controllers that are given the power to morph at the end of the series. Everyone would technically play two characters- a human and a Yeerk- and either secretly join the Peace Movement or try to hunt down the Animorphs. Sort of a switch-of-perspective sort of thing. Unfortuantely, I don't think there are enough people around here that are into the evil side of things to pull it off. xD

I am so freakin' in. I. Love. You Evil.

We can RP that here soon, once we get AFFRPG up and running. The beta starts soon (if you hurry, I can still squeeze you in.) and after that, anyone can give the staff plot requests.

8D So there's at least one person who'd be interested! Sweet~!

That's awesome. ^^ And as for the beta- I might be tempted to squeeze in. Is David still available?

Oh, I'm very interested. Wait, were you talking about the RP?

As a matter of fact, yes, he is. And all of book 66 (narrated by him) is up, so that might give you a bit of an insight into his mind. Feel free to take the character wherever you want to, though; he's not nearly as developed as I'd like him to be.

I haven't read past #55 yet, but I read David's character bio and YES for morph-capable rats. That was how I wanted him to end up (besides being killed off by Rachel.)

And having his 14-year-old self be one of his morphs. 8D I totally had this in-Ember's-mind-canon-thing going where Crayak sent David into his dream to get his human morph the way Ellimist did for Tobias, only rat!David tells human David that the Animorphs are going to try to betray him (which they did), and therefore that dream causes David to betray the Animorphs out of fear that they would do the same to him, in a sort of downward-spiral thing.

It makes sense in my head. D=

But yeah, I'll totally claim David, then. =O *must finish reading the fics!*

David's all yours! Enjoy being Bolts the Magic Talking Rat (that'll make sense once 67's up...)
