Um...Quinn's Cousin, or Somebody

OK, Germany’s over for the night.  Not only do I need to go to bed but not quite a prostitute Erin and FBI agent Dave are about to get busy in my head.  I’m also looped off Ambien so….anything can happen.

In my head right now, Erin is talking to her therapist.  I’m too tired to write so I’m just going to take my Ambien.  If so many Saturday nights are any indication, she will speak even louder after that.  I swear I’m going to bed.

Stay with me (this is what happens in my brain sometimes)

So I’m flashing through pics of Meta Golding on my hard drive, they’re saved as Jordan Todd, and then I went too far and clicked on the next pic, which was Josh Charles (who I so know is my new Benjamin face claim in the novel of doom) and oh shit! Meta would make a much better Anna than Gina Torres cuz as much as I love Gina I dont want her to be Anna because the character does some unlikable, triflin shit and I dont see Gina doing that.  Not that Meta looks evil but I think she can pull off the fucked Anna shit with a sexy, “who me?” face the entire time.  Plus, quickly flashing her and Josh Charles together….as characters they would be so good in bed and make beautiful babies.

So that’s settled.

The song Paradise City will always evoke the image in my head of 13 year old JJ, 10 year old Spencer, and 8 year old Ashley jumping on couches and metal thrashing.  Music is such a powerful thing.

The awesome/sucky part about late Saturday night Tumblr is that I’m always like 15 minutes from going to bed and then someone posts something (usually imagineyourotp or any kind of headcanon post) that makes the characters in my head start chattering and then I’m writing fic at 3 in the morning usually already having Ambien and god knows what I’m gonna wake up to in the morning.

I named the God-like character in my fic series The Boss after Bruce Springsteen.

The Rossi-Strauss kids in the Immediate Family universe (mostly Derek and Penelope) never really shut up.  They’re really interesting though, and surely keep their parents on their toes.

Yeah, I dont think that the Hotch x Prentiss story is gonna fly but I do have tickles of another Hotch/Beth future fic with Jack and their daughter.  I’ll let that play around in my mind for a while.

OMG, the Pet Sounds dogs are in my head!  I was just about to take my Ambien and go to sleep.  Let me see what I can write down first.

Things you should know about each of your characters


These are what I would consider to be the most basic, bare-bones questions of character creation.

  • What would completely break your character?
  • What was the best thing in your character’s life?
  • What was the worst thing in your character’s life?
  • What seemingly insignificant memories stuck with your character?
  • Does your character work so that they can support their hobbies or use their hobbies as a way of filling up the time they aren’t working?
  • What is your character reluctant to tell people?
  • How does your character feel about sex?
  • How many friends does your character have?
  • How many friends does your character want?
  • What would your character make a scene in public about?
  • What would your character give their life for?
  • What are your character’s major flaws?
  • What does your character pretend or try to care about?
  • How does the image your character tries to project differ from the image they actually project?
  • What is your character afraid of?
  • What is something most people in your setting do that your character things is dumb?
  • Where would your character fall on a politeness/rudeness scale?
