I don't have significant comment numbers to offer (other than "large") but I want something to pick at over the next few days. Ask questions about Josh or Echidna, I will answer and return more questions, and so it will go.

...I refuse to actually count how many comments or months it's been but whatever, question meme for Josh and Echidna. If you want to ask about David Menlo in Demonverse that's also fine! Or monsters but I reserve the right to make mysterious faces.

It's about time, I want stuff to pick at. With a twist this time! Either ask me things OOCly or ask me for IC responses from my characters (Josh and Echidna). In any case I'll respond OOCly with questions.

Have at.

AU brainstorming post! This probably wouldn't have changed much of Josh's CR, but it'll change a few things. He's switching out with his canon kind-of-AU and becoming original-timeline Marethyu.

explanations! )

TL;DR:

* Ages up into early twenties
* +100 zen
* +1000 long-term thinking
* Doesn't hide his hook anymore
* Answers to Marethyu

Most of his development per se is probably the same, but let me know if there are any major changes I should know about!

It hasn't quite been a month or a significant number of comments but things have happened and I want to ramble. Question meme.

You know what, I think I'm going to resurrect the massive infodump offscreen meme.

It's been....a while, and I kind of want something to pick at. Questions for Josh and, though she's not in play yet, hypothetical questions for Echidna are welcome.

Shortish writeups but hey.

making up with Sophie in the Danu Talis slums )

EFFECTS/WHAT HE LEARNED

* +50 twindere
* +50 self-confidence
* +25 protectiveness

writing Sophie a letter )

EFFECTS/WHAT HE LEARNED:

* "Marethyu" has some kind of significance. Possibly because it's unique? Anyway, he at least had a reason for taking the new name other than melodrama. (He still won't use it in Aather.)
* Planning to watch over Sophie forever, but otherwise stay out of her life. They both have stuff to do; it's a bittersweet feeling, but something he knows he has to do.
* It's a month after his world creation memory and Niten and Aoife's wedding. The Shadowrealm he's in has a different calendar system and may be outside time.
* CLEARLY HE WASN'T GETTING LAID IN THE MEMORY because he was getting fond of the hook. nope.jpg
* He can hear his name across dimensions if it's done right! This has awesome implications and he'll be passing this information out like candy.

This memory will feel kind of...final to him, because it's his last one! He still has gaps in his memories, but those will come back when he legacies; for now he's getting skills.

childhood montage )

EFFECTS/WHAT HE LEARNED:

* F-fifteen years of childhood
* A lot of bits of the training Isis and Osiris gave him
* American pop culture circa 2006 or so (based on the movie references in the first book)
* Most of the knowledge you'd expect out of a high school sophomore
* Looking back, it is easy to see how Isis and Osiris were manipulating him and Sophie
* If he's getting his childhood back, is he starting to get close to winning...?
* +1000 missing his twin

Virginia Dare spares Billy the Kid and Machiavelli )

EFFECTS/WHAT HE LEARNS

* ....wow, okay, bad choices were made.
* A lot of bad choices.
* Dee was really, really crazy towards the end.
* Virginia Dare is awesome but also not very sane.
* Why did he side with them again oh right, crazy
* ....d-do not want this whole situation.
* More belated creepiness about Osiris I WONDER WHY YOU HAD THE BOOK OF THE DEAD IN YOUR STUDY, DAD
* +100 respect for Machiavelli and Billy
* +50 understanding of KH darkness
* +50 KH light alignment.

climbing the Pyramid of the Sun )

EFFECTS/WHAT HE LEARNED:

* Aunt Agnes is awesome and badass.
* A lot of details falling into place -- how he got the tablet and the Codex, how they got up the Pyramid, what exactly the Pyramid does and why they had to have the showdown there.
* He's also pretty badass.
* The empire was definitely on its last legs; there was a war breaking out, and no matter how it ended...
* Not a whole lot else, honestly. He knows how this ends already.
* +100 Sophie dere
* +50 dere for everyone else on the pyramid

The Hook )

IMPORTANT EFFECT NOTE: Josh is going to have a hugely magical hook for a left hand after he takes this skill; he's questing with Nimue for a solution that makes his hand a little less...lethal, but it's probably not going to look like flesh again. Also some ping changes, but that is the obvious takeaway.
