I'm still kind of proud of it. Though maybe I shouldn't be.

A bit of backstory: Hannibal Niccals, older brother of Murdoc Niccals. High School AU. He was normally a quiet kid, illiterate and shy. Asthmatic and generally sickly. Tiny. Spooky but not generally violent. There had been some sort of plot device that I don't quite remember (this was years ago and rp is a silly thing at heart) but he became rather...well...American Psycho? I loved this kid and writing this bit of narrative has stuck with me since then. So I found it tonight to post here.

MAHS I'll miss you terribly forever.

I've never been terribly close with one set of cousins on my mom's side. I went to high school with one of them and one my friends refused to believe that we were even related. Anyway, I had a holiday dinner with them (we're getting a bit closer in our "old age") and the cousin I went to school with asked me if I remembered someone from school. I didn't, because I honestly had four friends in school and none of them were that person. Everyone else was awful to me or actively ignored me.

Anyway, he said he'd talked to her recently and mentioned that I was coming over for dinner. She said she'd always liked when I wrote stories for class and had thought I was really talented. I...still had no idea who he was talking about, even though I really wish I did.

It got me thinking how I really wish that she'd told me these things back then. Or at least given me the slightest bit of positive feedback. I spent high school hating myself and thinking that everything I did was worthless and stupid. I don't know. I know everybody had their own shit to deal with in school. But maybe if someone had something nice to me, I wouldn't have hated myself so much.

That's Pipes, over there in the icon box. He was a character from Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye. I role-played him for a while but had to take a break. I hope I can pick him up again soon. His account was here: DW user: [personal profile] comeonguess and maybe if I talk about him, I'll be able to play him again. Who knows?

I'll probably do more for other characters. Again, who knows?

Anyway!

I made a playlist for him. I wanna put it here. So I'm gonna. It's called "Mr. Blue Sky"...and here it is.

No dates because I'm super bad at noting such things. Going by memory here to a certainn point, hope I don't forget anything.
