➠ Pao-Lin Huang
Tiger & Bunny
muse strength: ✭✭✭✩✩
I can still do Pao-Lin's tags! It's just finding the focus and motivation to sit my ass down and do them. orz Though I've lately it feels like I've been kind of coasting with her. It might just be a side effect of me being so distracted, but...the major fallout from the Bride-Lin plot has more-or-less settled(?), so it's more of background noise at this point (albeit very uncomfortable, grating background noise). Additionally, while I do have a couple of plots and post ideas in store for her (I'm thinking of doing the Pikapao mallynap in September, and in October she might get involved with the Katie plot if Katie's far enough gone to really put Pao-Lin through the wringer), I don't have much in the way of any specific plots or directives to deepen her existing CR for the most part, which can make tagging with her feel a bit aimless and is in fact probably a contributing factor in me getting easily distracted from doing her tags. Though I don't think this would be as much of a problem if I had a clear idea of what the next step in her personal bildungsroman would be. She's already declared armistice with the leftover demons from the Bride-Lin disaster, and that's...probably as good as it's going to get at this point? Those things will be screaming bloody murder (heh) if Barnaby ever comes back, though.
Another thing that doesn't help is that T&B has been rather starved for new canon material for a while. Hopefully the release of the movies will inspire something new. Or the manga omakes will feature more Pao-centric stories. 8D
cast strength: ✭✩✩✩✩
Still just the dragon teen and the bearded oyaji tiger-cockroach. Maybe I should make a dear_mun post fishing for castmates soon...
plotting strength: ✭✭✭✭✭
She's up for all the things! ...sob.
likelihood of drop: ✭✩✩✩✩
...not even going to lie, recent IRL developments as of late have caused me to wonder if I'm going to have to drop her a lot sooner than I expected. (I was hoping for at least a two-year run at Luceti, dammit!) For now, she's staying put, but...I really need to figure out how to moderate her activity so that I'm not overwhelmed with tags. Also, gotta deal with the issues I raised under the "muse strength" section.
➠ Malikah Caesar
Tales of Graces f AU
muse strength: ✭✭✭✭✩
Dragons damn you, Malikah, you were just supposed to be a one-off "what if?" joke character born out of long-winded crack discussions and a random art challenge with Henry on Plurk, and I was supposed to be testing out Malik (speaks_with_his_back) in Vyc's musebox! But suddenly you're all "hey, make an account for me" and then "hey, make me some icons" and then "hey, write fake skits for me" and then "hey, canon-review for me and rewrite parts of the script so that I'm there instead of Malik and see what happens." Why. Whhhhhy. /face in hands
I'm floored that this is the second time this weird canon-mutating-into-an-AU process has happened with a Graces muse. omnomnomurice was supposed to be a canon!Hubert muse, but then one thing led to another and now he's my Sternbildverse AU version of him. I might as well go three-for-three and do an AU for Pascal as well. Maybe a version where she actually acts like she's 22 years old most of the time. I could name the account, IDK, yourtheoryisbananas...no, no, I'm not going to think about this right now, that's like staring into the abyss. The banana-scented abyss.
NOPENOPENOPENOPENOPE. She's getting her one dear_mun post after I finish canon-reviewing and that's it. Well, okay, that's not it, per se: I might unleash her on any Graces muses on dear_mun, and if anyone really wants to meme with her, I could manage that too. But my experiences with Bomberman at towerofanimus have proven that I cannot currently (if ever) play a second character actively. I just need Malikah to quiet down a bit so I can start paying better attention to poor Pao-Lin.
