Okay, could you post elsewhere, then? Thanks!
So, hey, if it seems like I've been MIA, I'm not avoiding anyone. Promise. I know I have a few hanging RP obligations, and I fully intend to get around to them. Some of my absence is a desire to do things other than Aetolia, but Iazamat also happens to be the hardest character I've ever played, and there are times when I entirely lose the character's voice and have difficulty playing him. If I do log in during these times, it's likely you'll find me half-AFK or our interactions will be extremely dry - sorry if you've caught that before! So if you're waiting on me for something, thanks in advance for being patient with me.
"Hi, I'm here. Tell me how much you hate Iazamat."
Unless not hating Iazamat is bad!
As for Iazamat. He is one of those incredible characters that is so thoroughly grounded in his own history and presence. It makes him read as fully-fledged and absolutely, undeniably real. Iazamat fills whatever space there is for him in a scene and inhabits it fully. I've mentioned before how envious I am of how much characterization you can put into something as simple as a few gestures or a change in posture, and that's exactly what I mean here. If Iazamat is standing and watching something happen, you're never just throwing out meaningless emotes that say 'I'm here!.' You are actively contributing to the scene, making it clear that it is Iazamat who is there.
There isn't enough to be said about your writing. One of my favorite experiences is reading what someone has written and getting giddy about how good it is. Reading anything you've written allows me to experience a lot of that giddiness.
Most importantly, you're one of the best 'yes, and'-ers in the game. The willingness to pick up the threads that other people are offering, adapting the scene to make it most enjoyable for everyone while still staying true to your character, does not go unnoticed. You contribute a lot to the game and to the people you write stories with. It is very, very good.
