SotP - December 2016

Since oodles of people are doing this right now, I am adding mine to the mix XD

State of the Me: Personally, I am doing well! I'm extremely busy at work and it's that time of year where basically our entire department is behind with our claims so sometimes I stay late or come in early just to keep myself from getting even more behind. That means some days, I'm working up to 11 hours so when I get home, my brain is fried, which definitely makes it hard to tag. That's why I decided to abandon reqs for December, I needed to give myself the chance to catch up with the threads I do have and gear the older ones toward a good stopping point. When January comes along, I anticipate securing a good number of threads in the NYE post.

Newt is more or less doing nothing of note right now. He and Chuck need to have a Crentist adventure, in which they will be getting high as fuq on laughing gas, which has been a plan for like 84 years now. When is it ever a good time to send your pup to the dentist to get them accidentally high? In any case, Newt's birthday is also in January so maybe a party thread at the condo is in order or something, depending on what NYE plot is. I'm just always happy to do batty shit with this one.

Kili is still very sad over his brother's disappearance. I feel like it might be good to get him a little reckless rather than keep him grieving, just to move him toward really accepting he won't see Fili again. The first time around, he didn't have to deal with it long because, y'know, he died; but this time, he knows what Fili went back to so he's having a really hard time letting anything go. I'm thinking he could probably throw himself back into vampire patrolling or something and maybe taking on a little too much on his own. If anyone wants to step in to help with that a situation like that, definitely let me know!

Reid is a happy little bean right now, everything in his life is excellent. He's married, he and Luke have taken Jack in, nothing in Darrow has been too batshit lately... Overall, he's in a really good place and enjoying that very much. I believe Luke is doing the sex-switch in January so that'll throw him for a loop but hell, he loves his husband in any form, they'll be just fine. Since that plot is next month, I think I'll jack him up a month or two after by setting up some kind of case for him. Maybe there's a pop-up serial killer running amok in Darrow? If anyone wants to talk plot for something like that and involve their pups somehow, hollah at me.

Oh, I'm also thinking of giving him a mean item. I don't think I've given him an item yet? I honestly can't remember but anyway, SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE SHOW RECENTLY/EVER I MEAN THIS ISN'T LIKE A LIFE-CHANGING SPOIELR OR ANYTHING BUT IT'S STILL A SPOILER SO IF YOU'RE STILL READING THIS IS NOW TOTALLY ON YOU LIKE FOR REAL YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO JUST KEEP MOVING ON TO THE PRETTY GIF BUT OKAY FINE I think I might send him the results of his mom's testing that show she's developed dementia. I don't want to canon update him because his life only continues to be hard in the show but there's been an implication in the most recent ep that there's something a little wrong with what's going on in Reid's head so I'm interested in poking that bear. I don't want to take it very far, but it's something he's been able to kind of put in the back of his mind lately so I think it would be interesting to bring it back up again, especially now that he's got an actual family.

Han is just kind of around. I haven't given him a whole lot to do, just because I'm not really sure where to start when it comes to getting him back into the whole smuggling gig. I like the idea of him pulling the double life kind of thing, hiding his more illegal hobbies from his friends, then eventually getting caught by someone who definitely wouldn't approve and seeing where that goes... but I have to figure out logistics on that, as well as who that could happen with, which might take a little bit of time. We'll see how it goes.

Ross is another one who's in a good place right now. He's working on the secret house building for Demelza but hasn't started building yet. At this point, I'd say he's probably been able to secure a loan and a contractor, and he'd be working on coming up with the layout of the house. He's got a team of friends who have volunteered to help build so that whole thing will probably start in another month or so. In the meantime, he's just being cute with his wife and kids.

Harold has officially started Team No Machine, which had its first meeting. Now, he's just trolling for a mission. I know Cindy is going to be getting involved with the team soon, and they'll be setting their sights on KIRIN so I think that'll be fun. I just love that Finch and Reese put together another group of badass ladies for their team, they make great choices. In any case, if anyone has ideas on a mission the team can pursue, which can definitely involve your own pup, I'd love to hear them! It can be anything from catching a creeper to something much bigger than that, Team No Machine wants to help~

He's also quietly entertained by playing matchmaker for John and Karen. Oops, he reassigned them for a task that doesn't even really need two people again? Very strange, indeed.

Future: I think I'm putting Danny from London Spy on the backburner again. I love him to pieces but now that the first season of The Exorcist is over, I'd still love to see if I can make playing Tomas work. I really enjoyed putting him in the Test Drive, that was unexpectedly a whole lot of fun, and I think we got just enough extra backstory for him in the finale that I can better understand his motivations.

The other character I'm thinking about bringing in is Credence from Fantastic Beasts. I threw him in this most recent TD and am also really enjoying playing him, plus he's so unlike any of the other pups I already play. He's extremely vulnerable and damaged right now, but I think that gives him a lot of potential to grow, especially in a place like Darrow. Playing out a journey for him interests me a great deal, I just have to decide who I'd want to bring in first! Hot priest or precious bb Obscurical?

By the by, I wouldn't be at all adverse to starting private posts now to link for January for anyone who'd like a head start on those reqs. It doesn't have to be plot-related or even related to anything I mentioned in this post. If you just want our pups to shoot the shit, I'm all for it :) Thanks for reading!
