Character Swap

Post by Caliburn on Sat Sep 07, 2013 5:44 pm

Ahahahah what, I'm suggesting this?
Yes. I am. :I
Basically what I mean, is controlling someone else's character. Like a big swap between either a group or one person, and you control someone's character, and someone controls yours, and you basically see what it's like to be in their shoes/try to get the personality right.

Of course, being something like this, it would go in the Non Canon section, and of course have no effect at all on anyone's characters; it'd just be for fun.

Anyone up for the idea at all?

Also, I have a wide range of characters, just pick one of the ones you THINK you could do well at controlling, and afterwards I'll do a random picker thing to determine who controls who, and that stuff. (Unless it's a 1x1, then der...)

SO YEAH. Anyone?

It could work.  I did it with a friend once...and found it unbelievably awkward, but that could very well just be me as a writer.  I'll support this if I can, but don't expect me to take part until I finish a couple more character biographies.

I'd be willing to do it, given I get a gist of the character's personality and all that good stuff.

I both like and dislike this idea. I'd be willing to-do this only if people can actually show me that they are able to play my characters in character. As in a sample on how they would RP my character. And I will do this the other way around as well to make sure I get their character as correct as possible.

Weehh. I don't really like the idea of someone else controlling any of my characters. The thought almost makes me feel a little uncomfortable.

Maybe that's just me being way too protective of my babbus.

I am for the idea if the people playing the characters don't mind me filling them in on some details that would affect the characters in roleplay. (They would be brief. u^u I promise.. That is, if someone even wanted to swap with mine. XD )

I don't fill in certain details in information on my characters publicly if it's something that other characters wouldn't somehow publicly know; that kind of information is often important enough that it would affect my characters in a certain situation. I think it would be important to the player as well.

Okay, so raise your virtual hand up if you would like to control one of MY characters.

*Throws characters at computer* I agree to this insane idea.

I raise my virtual hand. I'd be happy to give up Ember for Sam. :3
