The best part of a new game, a new book series or a new TV shoes is the characters, I'm not gonna lie-- It's always going to be the thrill of finding another character to identify with-- or a character that has a little piece of me inside her that I recognize. It was the part that made RPing so much fun (back when I did it), because I couldn't just SAY that I was going to RP a character, there had to be some sort of connection there between me and the character that made me want to pick that character up.

For the longest time, I left my identity in these characters-- they were a form of escapism (I realize this now). These characters were heroic, they were brave, they had what I considered to be perfect lives-- and they always got the girl or guy that they wanted. It was easy for me to manifest them into myself.

Even though I don't RP anymore.. I can recognize characters that I love-- that I identify with in some sort of way. Sometimes I've even had favorite characters because I've been half in love with them them.

For example-- in this current Tales game that I am playing-- the character who stood out to me the most was Magilou (and so far she has been my favorite character), I see that humor that she has in myself-- as well as that level of self preservation; that one is a survivor (Now if only I could make a proper icon of her).

Most of the time there are series where once I am able to see the characters, I can tell exactly what character is gonna be my favorite-- I did that with Magilou (because looks and style sort of matters in a way-- that is the first impression of the character, an introduction.) However sometimes that isn't the case-- when I saw the art for Zestiria, I thought Lailah was going to be my favorite character-- and then it ended up being Rose that I loved beyond all reason (to the point where I appreciate Lailah as a character but it was meh *though I think that had a lot to do with still not explaining her backstory even though you knew that her and Michael the Shepherd were connected in some way)

So yes, hurrah for favorite characters!

Watching Elimination Chamber from WWE--

Seriously, my boyfriend got me hooked on it; it was a calculated move on his part to show me WWE matches with characters that he was pretty sure that I would like (He never counted on Dean Ambrose though; but I gotta give him props for Tyler Breeze, Bayley and Becky Lynch).

Normally I watch it on my computer while I play video games; but somehow my computer doesn't want to run the network so I've been doing a bit of iconning; and surprisingly both icons have been keepers-- made a Tales of Hearts one (Beryl) and then a FFVI one (Sabin). I love it when I feel amazingly creative-- I haven't made an icon I think in a year--

So it's pretty much relaxing and preparing for work this week which is going to be a winner. We are guarenteed overtime all across the board, which is fine with me since I had to go to the emmergency room and I am not looking forward to the bill-- so any money that comes in will be perfect and will be adequately used to the greatest of purposes.

No, I don't really have to worry about money; I actually used my tax return money in order to play off my credit card bills, so I pretty much will pay 100 a month until the bad boy is paid off. I figure with all the soda that I'm cutting off (along with the fast food), I will have plenty of money to pay it off. Sadly, I do worry about money-- and once I get the bill in the mail, I will know what I'm dealing with (the unknown sucks)

I am pretty sure that 76 percent of my icons are from video games-- maybe that is because it's just ultimately my favorite media siphon.
