dicey: (I could find my way back)
-roughly twenty-five years old
- light gray skin
- two yellow-orange horns (one shaped like a claw, the other shaped like a stinger)
- sharp and pointy fang-like teeth
- naturally black lips
- dark blue sclerae
- lots of messy black hair-- either worn loose; in a long, thick braid down her back; or in complicated French braids
- glasses, with an eyepatch replacing the left frame (not the same pair that she had at age fifteen, however)
- left arm is nonexistent; there's just a stump, which is almost always wrapped up to keep the scarred skin from showing
- ratty clothes
- when she can find it, she wears blue lipstick and blue fingernail polish
- she has multiple (obviously non-professional) tattoos-- between her shoulder blades, words reading "Hanna Falk Cross", decorated with little skulls and 8s; on her right shoulder, a mini version of Zell's tattoo; on her left shoulder, a splotch of black, a few inches in diameter
- cartilage earrings shaped like lightning bolts that corkscrew up the sides of each ear

In an effort to not godmode other characters' futures (even event-y, potential futures!), everyone currently in Adstring will, from Vriska's POV, have been long gone from the city.
dicey: (my reputation's kinda clouded with dirt)
Name: Vrishchika (Vriska as a nickname), Goddess of Fear
Age: ~250 (appears eternally as a young teenager)
Backstory: She was formerly a mortal troll kid, and was made a fear goddess by Pitch. That's all I have so far, but I'm open to plotting with other people who are participating-- prior relationships, allegiances, feuds, etc. For characters who aren't participating, she'll remember her relationships with them as being essentially the same, but with the added "they're mortal and she's not" dynamic.
Personality: Basically the same as it is now, but amplified. Good influences have less of an effect on her because of the whole "goddess of fear and terror" thing, so she's even more of a vindictive, volatile wildcard than she was even in early canon. She's capable of compassion and love and positive things like that, but most people (i.e. mortals) just simply aren't worthy of it as far as she's concerned.
Relationships:
Hanna Falk Cross: PLATONIC LIFE PARTNERS FOR IMMORTALITY they're kind of diametrically opposed in most ways and probably have to do battle a lot but she doesn't care; she <3 him.

Pitch Black: He made her, so he's kind of her dad in a weird way. Except not, because a) former troll, so no concept of family; and b) IMMORTAL GODDESS HERE, YOUR PUNY MORTAL RELATIONSHIP CATEGORIES HAVE NO RELEVANCE TO HER MWAHAHAHA etc.

Other: Only people who are close to her are allowed to call her "Vriska", as far as she's concerned; it's a familiarity thing. She'll get pissy if anyone else does, because she'll see it as a show of disrespect.
dicey: (at least some things can't get any worse)
The space behind Vriska's door will be simple: there will be a multitude of video screens, all playing various scenes from her life (mostly from back on her home planet, Alternia). While in the past she's been a lot more "I don't care who knows about me and I don't care what you think" (even if some of that was at least partly an act), she's been more insecure about certain things lately, and this will reflect that!

UPCOMING DESCRIPTIONS ARE NOT GRAPHIC, BUT STILL FEATURE DISTURBING THINGS

Select video clips will include (unless stated otherwise, all people mentioned will be trolls):

SCREEN 1: A very young Vriska (~4 years old) watching wide-eyed-- partly horrified, partly fascinated-- as an eight-foot spider devours a screaming, crying child.

SCREEN 2: A somewhat older Vriska (~8 years old) forcibly wrestling a terrified younger child to the ground, then tossing him into a pit containing that same spider, now about twice as big.

SCREEN 3: An even older Vriska (~11 years old) using mind control to force an entire line of kids to walk to their deaths right into that same pit. By this point, she looks pretty numb to it all. Clips of similar scenes also scroll across the screen, at an increasingly fast pace-- it's clear that this was a regular occurrence, and that an untold number of kids died like this at Vriska's hands.

SCREEN 4: This one is a conglamoration of a bunch of different clips, all showing Vriska at various ages (about eight years old to about thirteen). In each one, she's sitting in front of a computer, chatting with the same person (who, annoyingly enough, always writes with white text). Most of their conversations aren't readable from the viewer's point of view, but Vriska always seems to end them angry, upset, or defeated-looking. Their last conversation, however, is readable (and if you want your character to read it but don't actually want to have to read it yourself, let me know and I'll summarize for you).

Interestingly, this one ends with a clip that might seem like a bit out of place: Vriska sitting on a couch in Ta Phrom, Pitch Black standing nearby and pouring her a cup of tea.

SCREEN 5: Vriska using mind control again, this time to force a boy to jump off a cliff (a different one from the spider pit). Unlike the previous killing clips, she looks furious in this one.

SCREEN 6: Vriska huddling on the ground, sobbing as ghosts swirl around her, looming over and brushing against her, sometimes ducking down close enough to whisper in her ears.

SCREEN 7: Vriska doing that now-familiar mind-control trick again, making a boy eat something thick and goopy-- something that seems to drive him more insane the more he eats. He's next shown attacking the house of a girl-- one who initially seems happy to see him, but quickly becomes horrified when she realizes what he's doing. He destroys the house through energy blasts coming from his eyes, killing the girl and anyone else that may have been inside.

SCREEN 8: Vriska peering closely at a round, white orb about the size of an 8-ball toy. Suddenly her eyes widen, and a half-second later the ball explodes in her face, blowing off one of her arms and spraying blue blood everywhere.

SCREEN 9: Vriska mind-controlling (YES AGAIN it was kind of her thing) the boy from screen 5-- not into doing anything bad to himself, but into mind-controlling someone else. This someone else appears to be a girl, who walks outside on a bright, sunny day and looks up at the sun. Her eyes turn red, and start to sizzle and smoke.

SCREEN 10: This scene, with no audio.


TL;DR VRISKA KILLS EVERYBODY PRETTY MUCH
dicey: (the love I need to see me through)
- roughly twenty-five years old
- light grey skin
- two yellow-orange horns (one shaped like a claw, the other shaped like a stinger)
- naturally black lips
- dark blue sclerae
- lots of messy black hair
- glasses, with an eyepatch replacing the left frame (not the same pair that she had at age thirteen, however)
- left arm is a metal prosthetic (again, not the same one she had at thirteen; as her body grew, she found people willing and able to make her new ones; it's not nearly as functional as her old one, though)
- ratty clothes
- wears blue lipstick and occasionally blue fingernail polish; for the most part, she's given up the huge amounts of mascara

In an effort to not godmode other characters' futures (even event-y, potential futures!), everyone currently in Adstring will, from Vriska's POV, have been long gone from the city.
dicey: (all of his questions)
SETTING
-contains elements of her hive back on Alternia, Athel Heim (the Adstring house she lived in with Jo and Morgana), and the House on the Rock (the Adstring house she lives in with Hanna and co.)
- I'm not picky on the details, so feel free to assume layouts based on those parameters; it's a dream, so stuff can be constantly changing anyway!


MEMORY ROOMS
Alternia
- Vriska at age six or so, using her mind control powers to make a group of fellow children walk off of a cliff and into the jaws of a giant spider
- Vriska peering at a round white ball, then a few seconds later, having it blow up in her face to messy effect
Adstring
- fighting Larxene, being beaten halfway to death, and yet still looking like she's having the time of her life (before she passes out, anyway)
UNDER CONSTRUCTION; MORE SOON
dicey: (so here's to drinks in the dark)
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION
-roughly twenty-three years old
- two yellow-orange horns (one shaped like a claw, the other shaped like a stinger)
- naturally black lips
- dark blue sclerae
- lots of messy black hair
- glasses, with an eyepatch replacing the left frame (not the same pair that she had at age thirteen, however)
- left arm is a metal prosthetic (again, not the same one she had at thirteen; as her body grew, she found people willing and able to make her new ones)
- ratty clothes (for example, she often wears an overshirt with one of the sleeves ripped off)
- wears blue lipstick and occasionally blue fingernail polish; for the most part, she's given up the huge amounts of mascara

PERSONALITY
- less immature and irritating
- somewhat less reckless
- still has a typical troll mindset/moral set in some ways, but it's been tempered due to non-troll influences
- still not really a nice person overall
- more sarcastic/snarky/deadpan (which might cancel out the "less irritating" bt for characters that wouldn't put up with that)
- more secure in herself; less overcompensating confidence and bravado
- doesn't obsessively try to make herself like Mindfang anymore, but she still thinks she's cool peeps (a.k.a., she's not interested in emulating her because she recognizes how different their situations are and knows being Mindfang just wouldn't work in Adstring, but there was no complete 180 "I've decided that the things Mindfang did were awful and wrong", either)
- sometimes struggles with the violent urges of an adult troll, but the people close to her have generally been able to help her channel them in positive ways
- still doesn't want to go back to her own world; if everyone was able to leave, she'd probably go wherever Hanna went

RELATIONSHIPS
- friends with Axel/Lea
- friends with Junior; knows some of the secrets about his past
- presumably gets over her crush on Larxene at some point because I can't imagine that shit lasting ten years
- becomes heterosexual life partners very close with Hanna; probably still has moirail feelings for him; out of all her relationships she loves him best 8]
- never reconciles with Kanaya and ends up in a kismesis relationship with her

MISC.
- stopped using her typing quirk sometime in Year 5

Please comment here letting me know if you don't mind Vriska's annoyingly-formatted text!!!!!!!! (for general ease I'll default to replying to people with voice/video posts if I don't know whether or not they're cool with the colored courier).

Please fill this out if you don't mind her text:



Original permissions post here.

In addition: Please contact me if you don't want to thread with her even without the quirk. Vriska is a character that annoys a lot of people from a canon that annoys a lot of people, and if you'd rather me not tag your posts with her, I'd really appreciate it if you let me know. I won't take it personally or hold any ill will towards you. I really, honestly have no interest in forcing threads/interaction with people who don't want it; it takes two to tango, and if it's not fun for you then it won't be fun for me either.
dicey: (pretty little face stops me in my tracks)
Anon commenting is ON, and I'm not going to take your crit any less seriously if you decide to take advantage of this (or if you're just a lurker or something)- unless, of course, your purpose for remaining anonymous is to simply bash and offer no advice on how to improve. Concrit isn't trolling in my mind; "LOL GTFO U SUXX0R" is.
