faeriewings1781: Farkle being Farkle (Its Farkle Time)
So yesterday I began something I never thought I would. I started RPing with my girl, Lexi! We haven't really been in an RPG together in a few years since I had gotten involved in INsane Journal RPGs. How did it happen? Well, I'll tell you!

I needed a place to play dear Farkle Minkus that Valerie wouldn't be involved in. I love Valerie, I do. But as an RPG partner she sucks at being reliable for tagging. She gets too overwhelmed by bringing in too many characters. She actually grated my nerves when I expressed my initial shock over Facebook for feeling close to Farkle after a 13 episode marathon on Saturday. I haven't mentioned having a Farkle muse where she can see it because she'll whine if I don't want to play with her Riley or Maya. It's not that, really. It's the unreliability of the tagging. I don't approve of people claiming characters in a game and then not playing them at all.

So now Farkle is in Grande Latte with Lexi and a few of our other friends. <3 SOme of them I am still getting to know, but so far I've found them all fun to be around, and they have really embraced Farkle and my obsession with him.

I ahve watched the episode where Minkus makes his appearance no more than 12 times now. I love it so much. Lee Norris' chemistry on screen with Corey Fogelmanis (how is that for an appropriate last name for the person playing a character with a name like Farkle Minkus?) was just...perfect. I don't know if that was on purpose or not. It would be nice to think that they really took out the time to try the kids of the famous parents (Topanga, Cory, and Minkus), but I really doubt it. The only one I can see them doing that for is Riley (Rowan Blanchard). The casting of Corey Fogelmanis as Minkus 2.0 had to be magic for him to play off of Lee Norris so well. Yes, we're talking about one episode so far. There has been no word on a second appearance from Lee. Would be nice if some more of the gang got together for the Christmas episode. I know that RIder Strong is set to appear as Shawn for Christmas. I could easily see Lee Norris showing up and the Matthews family having a Christmas gathering and him coming to that. (Though, and maybe its because he's really turned into a psuedo-Seto Kaiba to me for some reason, I can see the party being hosted at the Minkuses with Mrs. Minkus doing the cooking. )

Last night i started a Matthews vs. Minkus fanfic. I am still working Into the Fire, so I don't know how far I will get with this fic. But it is sure to be amusing as Minkus and Topanga become more involved in the election than their kids. Hilarity and nostalgia abound. Farkle is in top form in the fic. And I've already got ideas for other Farkle-centric fics. Yay!

That being said...I'm nervous about National Novel Writing Month. I haven't been able to focus on plotting NaNoWriMo at all. I have a vague idea for what I'm going to attempt, but I doubt I will do it well because my brain is just....on fanfic. Both what I'm working on, and what I've got planned.

I just don't know if I have it in me right now to work on original work. :( I am sure once November 1st hits, I'll be thinking differently. But right now, I just don't see original work happening. >.>
