Nuke doesn't post in weeks, and what does she return with? A meme, of course.

Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five a few ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

ALSO

Tell me a pairing, and I will tell you:

1. When or if I started shipping them:
2. What I think their challenge is:
3. What makes me happy about them:
4. What makes me sad about them:
5. What moment I wish had never happened:

1) Most important is, of course, that she was raised by a wolf. Even though Terra taught Noa quite a bit, the girl still doesn't know much about the outside world and asks a billion questions. The constant questions are something I try to keep up with.

2) Her habit of calling things "weird" if she doesn't get it. She also tends to repeat things a few times while she's mulling over the explanation. I really need to get into the habit of her repeating things more.

3) Noa does not think before she acts. Usually. She jumps to conclusions and rushes headlong into what she thinks is a solution and oftentimes gets rather literally blasted back for it. I haven't had a chance to play with this in Luceti quite yet, but her conclusion-jumping is sure to come into play soon enough.

4) She cries easily. Given that my other characters don't cry very easily, it's a little tough to remember sometimes that Noa is 12 and what is this and will burst into tears just if she gets a little upset.

5) HYPERACTIVITY. Noa is, by and far, the most hyper character I've ever played, and so the sheer level of energy is something to work to keep up with.

1. When or if I started shipping them: Honestly, after that love meme where they hooked up, I shipped it pretty much as "this would be really funny". I didn't honestly consider it a real ship until Goroh's memory of Lisa was wiped and Litchi ended up being the woman he pictured himself with... even though Litchi didn't feel the same, it was still very shippable.

2. What I think their challenge is: Each other. Their interests clash just by them being themselves. Litchi is a very traditional girl and Goroh is... Goroh. Even if they did ever hook up, they'd never last very long.

3. What makes me happy about them: The way they play off each other always amused the hell out of me. Goroh's trolling and Litchi's weak rebuttals (and occasional hairpulling) just worked out really nicely as a dynamic.

4. What makes me sad about them: They'd never work. Even if Litchi felt the same, even if Goroh didn't have Lisa in the picture, there's no way they'd last as a couple.

5. What moment I wish had never happened: I guess Litchi pestering an answer out of Goroh when he didn't want to talk about why he'd left. She sure as hell regretted it.

6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Goroh, I still think would work wonderfully with Buffy were they the same age. Also lol Aerith.

Litchi, I ship with so many people it's ridiculous, so let's just say Dave or Bang. :V

7. My happily ever after for them: THIS IS ME HITTING POST WITHOUT REALIZING THIS LAST QUESTION WAS CUT OFF

Happily-ever-after would probably be if they could ever overcome their differences and just... be together. Without Litchi wanting to pull her hair out or Goroh headdesking himself into a coma.

Oh, and Baiken for the first meme?

(no subject)

1) First and foremost: Baiken is a fighting game character. All problems are solved by beating the snot out of someone. I try to keep this in mind whenever any kind of issue pops up. Is there someone who could be held slightly accountable? Yes? Beat the hell out of them. :|b

2) Another very important thing I try to keep in mind with Baiken is that she's something like an overgrown, angry guard dog when it comes to those she considers family. Obviously, fueled by her reaction over her parents' death, but also in the Guilty Gear manga where she rips apart a piece of a Gear just for showing up in the Colony. She doesn't take these things lightly.

3) Her soft spot for Bridget, Anji, and Chipp. She goes very easy on all three of them compared to the rest of the cast, making it obvious that she can be nice, although she's hideously embarrassed about it when she is.

4) The violent streak. Even though this seems glaringly obvious, Baiken usually stops herself before she can maul anyone beyond repair, but in cases like I-no, she loses all control. It's something to keep in mind when she's up against an opponent she truly hates: Baiken kind of loses it and outright goes for the jugular.

5) This one also seems obvious, but I work very hard to keep it in mind: Asymmetry. There is only one eye and one arm. The eye I have less trouble keeping in mind when I write things, but her arm? I've had to stop myself a few times from having her grab someone by the throat with one hand and draw her sword with the other. SHIT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY WITH HER.

PFFFHAHAHA

1. When or if I started shipping them: Calamity Trigger. Tager's devotion just set off my shipper radar. >>;;

2. What I think their challenge is: ASIDE FROM THE OBVIOUS FACT THAT TAGER IS A CYBORG AND KOKONOE IS A TINY CATWOMAN? Kokonoe being a fierce tsundere. I can't see her admitting that she likes anyone very easily.

3. What makes me happy about them: The sheer amount of trust between them. Kokonoe can scream at him all she wants and call him useless, but she still relies heavily on him and Tager is always happy to help. Even though Kokonoe does weird shit to him like turn him into Golden Tager.

4. What makes me sad about them: It'll~ never~ happen~

5. What moment I wish had never happened: ...None, really? XD

6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: ...Uh. No idea. Koko I can't see with anyone else, and Tager... yeah. Don't think I have any alternates.

7. My happily ever after for them: A future in SCIENCE!!! Happy Sector Seven dorky times, maybe with Litchi and Lambda and possibly Arakune except that he and Kokonoe fighting messes up the happy S7 Family picture

From: [personal profile] not_meatbuns
I WILL HIT THIS ONE ON MY LUNCH BREAK AND GET THE PAIRING LATER

1) Lao Jiu. He seems like he'd be less difficult to remember than he is, but alas. He's a huge part of not only Litchi's overall appearance, but what holds her together. Not that it really matters in Luceti anymore... which makes it more difficult to remember him sometimes.

2) Arakune. SO GODDAMN IMPORTANT IT HURTS. He's the reason behind pretty much everything Litchi has done in about seven years. So much ties back to him that it's absolutely ridiculous. He's related to so many things in her life that it makes him really difficult to ignore in anything.

3) Her health. I've really only gotten to play with this in Luceti, but her body is very much broken after the Boundary erosion. Her lungs are bleeding in canon, for crissake. I try to keep it in mind that, strong as she is, most of her strength came from the Boundary. Her body itself is breaking down and far weaker than you'd expect. I try not to overplay it in Luceti, but I do make sure that from time to time, there's some kind of indicator that she's slowed down now without the Boundary to back her up (even though she's already spent a lot of time recovering).

4) Separation anxiety. Oh jesus. She does NOT take losing loved ones very well (LOL HI ARAKUNE) and kind of has a meltdown if there's a significant danger of losing someone. Or if they're already gone. I feel overdramatic sometimes with her reactions to people getting sent home, but... there it is.

5) MOMMY INSTINCTS. These come out even in canon and they're something I love playing with with her. She's very protective of her "family", and anyone who messes with them can expect a solid 13 Orphans to the face. Since Litchi is not a very violent character under most circumstances, her defensiveness of her loved ones is something I always want to toy with, but don't get too much opportunity to. Also god, does she dote on little kids. She just needs someone little to hug on. ;_; COUGH NOEL COUGH CARL

From: [personal profile] not_meatbuns
1. When or if I started shipping them: IDEFK It's always been a joke ship for me. XD;; There was probably some kind of fanservice thread way back when that originally caused it, though.

2. What I think their challenge is: Two challenges. One is called Kamina, the other, Arakune. :V

3. What makes me happy about them: They really do make a great team of fanservice. ♥ They have so much in common that it's a little ridiculous, so they play off each other really well.

4. What makes me sad about them: The fact that both of them have horrible track records with romance.

5. What moment I wish had never happened: NO CLUE BRO I don't really have an answer for this.

6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Kamina for Yoko.

...once again, my problem with shipping Litchi with half the universe. Let's just say Bang here.

7. My happily ever after for them: BOOBS AND SMALL FURRY THINGS THAT CAN BE CARRIED IN THEM

FOREVER

THAT IS A HAPPILY EVER AFTER RIGHT
