Canon is SWAT. Anna is not impressed by the third movie.

I don't know what this is supposed to be. I know you want this to be good, but this is so, not good. And I'm not playing along with it. Not unless Travis wants to show up here and explain himself.

You want me to come back out, call TJ. Or Gamble. Or even Cutler, I'd take him in a heartbeat. Those were real cops.

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby's living in the past.

No I'm not.

I'm allowed to miss the people who have been important to me. Connor will always be important in my life, even if you think he's not coming back. I literally changed my life to spend more time with him. John was a lot of fun. And Michael and Damien, well, there's nobody like those two guys ever. I'm not ever going to forget them.

So I don't think there's anything wrong with going over old threads and remembering all the people who influenced my life. They all helped to get me to where I am today. And everyone around me now would understand that. I haven't forgotten anyone since I was in karting and I'm never going to forget anyone who helped me.

Deal with it.

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby is wrecked.

When I say I could've been killed, and nobody says anything, that doesn't make me feel very good about my future.

I know you like me, and you really want to see things end well for me, but I think it's time to consider that it's just not in the cards. Maybe it's time to move on, for me and for you. Every racer hangs up their helmet eventually. Even the champions. There'd be no shame in it.

Better that than having my heart broken again. Or my head.

I thought you had forgotten about me. [Kevin gives his Mun the look a kicked puppy might share. He's hurt. Deeply and emotionally by the negligence.] You have been looked at games haven't you? Would you send me to one? Cos I'd like that and if any of the gals are around it would be even better.
shelbycobra: (Making a phone call)

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby feels like a lost kitty.

If your biggest accomplishment is teaching me to swear in two languages, you've really got to work on your plotting.

But seriously, we have two weeks off now, and I...I feel really lost. I feel like I don't know anything about my future. My car is changing, my team is changing, my contract is going to change, and I hardly see the people I care about. I had these great ideas about getting married and being a champion and maybe even taking next year off to start a family, and now I feel like I don't even know who would be there if I did.

Can we work on that? Can you find me somebody to have a good, long conversation with? I'm sure the swearing will still come in handy.

But I don't want to be alone.

Do anniversaries work that way? (crossposted to [community profile] dear_player, canon is SOD's ふたなり村)

So what if the ninth anniversary of our canon is also the 11th anniversary of another milestone in the history of intemorphic art? I'm not sure it "averages out to a tenth anniversary", heibon-kun.

Not that I'm actually opposed to your idea, as long as the canon version of Hataka-mura is still one of the options. We promised Harley-chan a visit years ago, and one of these days I still want to deliver.
shelbycobra: (Oh no you didn't)

Canon is Need For Speed. Seemed like a good idea at the time.


What am I supposed to do right now? No, really, I'm seriously asking you. What am I supposed to choose here?

You've come up with an impossible choice. The one thing I've never done in my career or my chance to make history. How do I choose?

And you know the last time I went to France it was for Frank and then his house blew up and you had to retcon me.

Where's Michael?

Canon is Need For Speed. What did I do?

Why the hell am I here?

You think on the night before the biggest race of the year is a good time to take me away from work and force me to talk to people.

And this username isn't funny.

Unexpected Muse springs to life!

Good morning, Mun! ..... It is morning, isn't it? Technically? Well, let's just go with that, okay? I'm happy to see you're taking me out. I knew you were a sucker for my character type, given some of the others I came across in your headspace.

I'll let you be lazy for the next couple of days, but when Summertime comes, oh man am I gonna badger you! I want a game to play in. I need a game to play in! After so many indulgences of my imagination, I'm super interested to see if the real fantastical, spectacular stuff out there matches up! [Giggles]

Oh yeah, don't worry - I'll be fine! I've survived as many dangerous and potentially fatal situations I could think up, so I don't get why you're so hung up about the idea of me meeting some sudden, tragic end! Sheesh!
shelbycobra: (Oh no you didn't)

Canon is Need For Speed. That big race ahead.


I don't ask you for a lot but I'm going to ask you for one thing.

I want someone there for this next race. This is the biggest race of the year and with all of the bad things that have happened leading up to it I want -- I need somebody to be here right now.

I haven't seen Connor in a month. And Michael, I don't know, I guess he disappeared again. But I can't do this alone anymore. I can't keep all this in anymore. I'm asking you for help.

[She's scared and sad. But then she hears what else the mun has in mind and her head snaps around.]

That other thing you're thinking of doing?


Okay, so I'm asking you for two things.
shelbycobra: (Definitely pissed at you)

Canon is Need For Speed.

You're lucky Connor wasn't there. Having me need a doctor after the race? When he finds out, he's going to kill you. And then me for not telling him.

But you need to put your head together with his mun. There's some very big things happening for me now, and I can't imagine that he would miss all of them. You two need to figure out what's going on and where he is before you say something else stupid.

And how did I drive three hours from Indianapolis to Chicago with two injured hands anyway?

[Uh Shelby. Shane actually would have...]

No. Don't tell me he's lurking around here somewhere. I'd rather have the blisters.
shelbycobra: (Are you serious?)

Canon is Need For Speed.

Um. Hi.

[Raises hand.]

Given my relationship status, you know what the first one of these sounds like I did, right?

You don't even know if my boyfriend would want me to propose. Isn't he supposed to propose? And in case you forgot, the one time I tried to get married didn't go so well. So what are you doing with this thread except possibly upturning my romantic life?

...You're just going to leave it there. Okay. Hm. I guess we'll see if he notices. And see if I say I told you so.

Give me one reason that I should go along with this when I just spent the last few weeks getting played and yanked around by people with agendas who hand-on-their-heart swore they were trustworthy.

[Well, y'know. You could go to jail if you don't go to a game, Brendan. The game is probably better just by default.]

I doubt it. Even with the slip-up with the evidence, it's easier to pin everything on the suspects they've got and cops aren't really known for being thorough. They like open and shut cases. So do I when I can actually find them. I also like working alone or at most with one person who I know for a fact isn't going to be at the game. This whole thing is going to end the way it always ends, somebody in jail, someone else's fist in my gut and too late to do any real good. Did you tune out when I was talking to the VP? I don't do heroics. Don't think anyone really does, honestly, regardless of what they tell me, you or themselves.

Do what you gotta do to let me go. It's not going to work out otherwise.

Canon is Solstice

It's a bit weird to be here with two others with my face. Or do I have theirs? I don't honestly know. I've heard a bit about the one, Derek. Then again, his kind is prominent in some parts of New Orleans. So now that you have me, what're you going to do with me?

Might not get much traction since not a lot of people know my canon. But I'm willing to try if you are.

shelbycobra: (Definitely pissed at you)

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby's being a spoiled brat.

No, I don't think I'm acting like a spoiled brat. In case you haven't noticed things in my life aren't going well right now. We're making mistakes and there's no room for mistakes so yeah, I'm going to be pissed. Plus I'm lucky if I get to see my boyfriend at all, I miss Michael, and oh yeah, still upset that everyone forgot my birthday. So I'm upset and I'm not going to apologize for it.

I'm allowed to act badly sometimes. I'm sure there are muses around here who do a lot worse than throw a temper tantrum. If I tick some people off then I'll fix it later. Let me get it out of my system now before the Month of May.
shelbycobra: (Has a headache)

Canon is Need For Speed. Who's the birthday girl?

I think you should give up on the idea of my birthday ever being a thing. I know you love to write all sorts of holiday posts, but this is the second year nothing has happened. At least last year I won a race. This year is just, I don't know what it is. I don't think people care about birthdays once you get past like 21.

You did say some of the other drivers got me presents. I'm sure Mom and Dad got me something too. So at least that was nice, but you don't have to make every milestone in my life a major RP event. Just write a ficlet about it and we'll skip the letdown.
grailknight: (smile: slight)

Kingman Knights, are you here?

I have conveyed to you before that I don't mind being alone. If it is a state I am in, you will hear no complaints from me. The thing to keep in mind is that things are constantly changing. There is a blessing in that, believe me.

I will admit that finding more Kingsman would be exciting for the both of us, I am ready to fully admit that they might not there to be found.But this status will not last long; there is a trailer coming.

Which brings up the point of how I will be depicted in the sequel. I have no requests for how that shouod take place. I have changed so much since then. Whatever happens to my screen self really bares no connection to me; we are not at the mercy of a plot that we ourselves are not orchastrating. Remember that.

Obscure 90s films ahoy! (Canon is Sneakers)

 So, er, Boss? What's the plan here exactly? 
shelbycobra: (Default)

Canon is Need For Speed. Shelby's a skeptic already.

We can both agree that not having brakes on my car is a bad idea. I obviously would like to be able to stop and not crash. But I'm not sure calling in Tobey is the solution. What makes you think he's going to fly all the way from New York just to look at my car? There's nothing in it for him, aside from painful memories.

I do know you should probably talk to my friends, because I'd like to think someone in my life would have seen the race and been slightly concerned by me almost catching on fire.

If this is how the first week goes I am going to absolutely love this season. And that is not sarcasm this time. This'll be fun.
shelbycobra: (Definitely pissed at you)

Canon is Need For Speed.

No, I don't think he left me. Don't be a dick about it.

We've got six days until the season starts, four until I have to leave anyway, so you want to focus on that?
