I GOT PERMISSION LET'S DO THIS.
So, let's start with a confession, here. @Akaryuterra
's old as balls, but I didn't really RP with him until Lin, so not until mid-2010. By then, naturally, you'd had a lot of time to fill in to your character. To make a long story short, I tried to hang out with him a little bit when Lin was still a human. He did the talking-to-himself thing and I thought "huh, that's kinda weird." And that was about it. I guess I didn't get him, and I was so stuck in my little world I didn't really care for him too much.
But then of course later, Lin and @Eleanor
became pretty tight friends and so I got a lot more chances to play with him. And let me say this - wow, just wow. I have never seen someone put such a ludicrous amount of thought into their character. Akary's one of those brand of bizarre, self-generated Idreth, one who is as chilling as he is intricately detailed. I really wish I'd saved the log of when you visited @Anfini
in jail but the illusion, you sent, the one about how he had no musculature or bones in his hand, instead holding the structure intact with some kind of veinlike system, had me staring dumbfounded at my screen, going "this is craaazy". We have our fair share of very loud, very strange, very murderous and very pretty characters in Aetolia, but it is my honest opinion that the boys are probably the most complex.
The writing, by the way, is nothing short of a pleasure. We all know you like to play hard and fast with emote length - it's been the subject of fond jokes - but it never feels padded. I never feel like I have to skim your actions to get the real meat of it, and for all the colossal paragraphs you tend to drop, you type them pretty reasonably quickly. It's obvious that you have a love for worldbuilding, judging by the dense descriptiveness you pack into everything, and the best part is that you never flash it in anyone's face. I wouldn't even have known how crazy cool you are as a player and how cool your character is if I hadn't dived in to look.
In short, I'll repeat what I said in the LOVE thread: If you don't like @Akaryuterra
, you're wrong. End of story.
