If you Could Meet An I.H.G.K. as a real person

Who would it Be and what would you want to either talk about or do with that person?

This is a little game I usually play with myself when I like a story. Try and limit yourself to one character per post, and remember the whole story line including bonus stories are open to choose from. Who knows we may even give MeiLin an idea or two.

Myself for starters... I would love to sit down with the Traveler queen & talk about herbs, healing, & traveler traditions. I love adding to my store house of information on such things.

probably one of the Most Highs. I could deal with someone pointing out the obvious to me without making me feel like poo. It has not been a kind year so far.

... with Malla. I find her both wise and uniquely enjoyable as a character. And as a sex geek who could stand to learn more about the emotional, and relationship sides of the Lovers' domain, I don't think we'd run out of topics to discuss anytime soon.

If Malla's still busy with Oddfish, I'll choose the High Priest of Eddin instead. Sooooo many things to discuss. Smile

I could go the same route and talk to someone about their vast knowledge and wisdom or something, but I think I'd have go with being ritually deflowered by Senik. S)

make me feel shallow. Maybe I shouldn't answer this question when I'm all worked up. I'm torn between Allis, Jessa, and Harsin, for obvious reasons. I would also go with Maeb, because I want to find out if she could give me a controllable Emmae style enchantment. I think it would be really incredible to feel other people's desire towards you...as long as you could turn it off when it was inconvenient. I think that idea has brought out some of my favorite fantasies.

Part of what made me think of it is how completely and utterly oblivious I am when people (read: men) are interested in me. Always have been, probably always will be. I mean, I'll be talking about something that happened 20 years ago and my friend'll go, wow, that must've been weird to have that guy hitting on you, and I'll go, huh? He was hitting on me?! I mean, I'm not kidding, it takes me YEARS to catch up.

I'm not the only one! I've always had a lot of male friends who are nothing but friends, so if they want to be more, I'm afraid they have to be blatantly, almost obnoxiously, obvious before I'll notice. Duh.

I wonder how many there were that just gave up?

unless it comes to women. I mean, I can instinctively tell when a man likes me. If you're a woman, not so much. Unless you make it painfully obvious.

... or hornier than I currently am, I totally would have opted for something sexier and less cerebral. Britt, say. Or almost any combination of one or more of Allis/Anda/Bessa/Evra/Senik/Issak that isn't overwhelmingly male.

Jessa, hot though she may be, wouldn't have been in the running - I try to avoid sociopaths, for the most part.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

I guess my desire to meet her was mostly based on my fantasies about her. I'm usually the top (if by usually, I mean almost always) with both boys and girls, and I like that a lot, but I think it would be interesting to be done by a hot girl who knows how to do it, and wants you really, really bad. I can play "oh, please stop!" for a little while, and see where it goes, and in fantasy, I can let sociopath slide even if I can't in real life.

Non-consent stuff is always interesting to me in stories and porn, but in real life stuff like that has to always be either in my head, or something we agree on before hand and are just pretending about. I think it would be hot and interesting to secretly want her, summon her out of a fictional story, and let her think she was raping me. I think it would be even hotter if Hildin watched.

... this is where we differ (well, this and the fact that I'm swinging more towards bottom instead of top). I can ignore a lot of stuff in fantasy, but can't ignore the sociopath aspect. Not even in fantasy. Not even for the double whammy of Jessa and Lucius Malfoy. Wink

kawaiikune's picture

does that mean if he weren't a sociopath, you'd want to have sex with Lucius Malfoy?

Gudy's picture

Embodiment

... Lucius Malfoy, as portrayed in the movies, gives me the shivers, and not in an entirely bad way. He somehow manages to push all the right buttons for my sub side. If he weren't a sociopath, I'd totally submit to him in an S/M session, with very little except permanent harm off the menu...

Oddfish's picture

I think that's a Jason Isaacs thing. He was a Lucius-y character in The Patriot, and while I hated his guts, I have to admit he was smokin'. Seeing him be normal, however briefly, in the most recent Peter Pan was so weird, because he's probably the best actor out there for Magnificent Bastard roles.

MeiLin's picture

I didn't realize the same actor was Lucius Malfoy and the father/Captain Hook in "Peter Pan" (which, btw, is a TERRIFIC film that brings out the subtext--no, not that kind--in the story).

Maybe what you need is Jason Issacs pretending to be a sociopath. You would be totally safe, since the sociopath part is entirely acting, but you could still get the job done. Smile

I don't know who I'd like to meet. I consider the siblings like my own children, and I'm sure they'd think that would be incredibly weird. If it were clear that I was the writer, I think I should like to meet Teacher the most. We could have some very interesting conversations, though I think I'd probably have some explaining to do...

I'd love to listen to Connin tell me outrageous (impossibly true) stories, or sit in Britt's kitchen--I'd love that. If I had to choose someone from the Temple, I'd choose Barik, and not for the obvious reason; I find Barik a very sympathetic companion.

But I was told to choose one, and so it's Teacher. If I had some kind of magical shield, anyway.

ETA:

An interesting thought: I know way, way more about these people than you do, which is natural, considering they're all in my head. I said that about Barik and then realized I've talked with Barik more than I've allowed you guys to see in the story; you don't really know what a sympathetic companion he is.

And then I realized I was completely off my chum.

I looked over the character list, and there I found my top choice, so she is considered a "character." Blum 3 As long as we're wishing to meet a fictional character in a fictional place, I would like to meet Harla in the ITGK afterlife. What a fascinating conversation that would be! I wonder how she would take my suspicion that the world I come from does not have living gods invested in the fates and afterlife of humanity. I wonder what she would say about evolution for that matter, lol. But I also think I would very much enjoy hearing whatever it was she wold be willing to say to me, dead or living. Maybe if I was "living" or going back to the living, she couldn't really speak to me, so... for once I wish I were dead. That would be a very interesting conversation.

If this is cheating I have no problem naming a second choice. I would also like to have a conversation with Temmin, if he could stand knowing a female who wasn't a relative or sexual interest. Smile I think we'd get along alright. I have no idea what we'd end up talking about, but it would be fun. Maybe horses. Maybe we'd go on a ride.

Good topic! Biggrin

They just rarely enter his consciousness at that age. Perhaps that'll change a little in the editing, but it's still very accurate if it doesn't Smile
Ilyndra's picture

was of meeting Issak or Allis ..... because of their hair. I think I'm finally starting to realize how much I like long and straight black hair o.o
And I usually pride myself with being quite on top of whats going on in my head.

I'm torn between meeting Issak, because I just fancy him xD And Macca, because I would really want to talk with her. She's such a strong woman like myself and talking with her would be rather freeing. I'm so tired of having to 'soften' myself in front of people. I freak them out quite a bit. I'm also interested in Macca for her connection to Harla, I would love to talk about how she dealt with the death of Ilhovin. My greatest fear is that I will lose the love of my life just like my mother did hers. Her story really touched me a lot. Especially the part at the Temple.

Rather hard to choose. I'm quite in experienced in being loved and loving someone, so Issak could teach to me a lot about that, but then again, I would love to get some point of view to the things I'm already experienced in, and that I would get from Macca.

Then again, maybe Teacher could help me with both? I'm sure he has good story for me to tell too. But would he teach me? :?

Britt's kitchen .... yeah, I'll take that xD Food and nice people! I would go there Biggrin

Imbert, hands down. He fascinates me, and, knowing what I know about him, I'd absolutely kill to meet him. His ilk are fading fast from our world, and the best are long dead. It'd be something special to meet one of those legends. Know what I mean?

Herbals with The Traveler Queen, I would then love to spend the night with Jenks trying to help him forget his heartaches for a bit.

I'm betting that could be lots of fun.

I know a lot of older men that I feel that way about. They're marginally happy, but things in their relationships aren't good because their wives are harpies that never put out. I always just want to make them smile, even just for a little while, but I know that's both horribly inappropriate because of the age difference and that it probably would make them less happy in the long run. It's especially weird when that guy is a friend's dad or something. I still feel it, though, even if I know there's nothing I can do about it. I definitely feel that way about Jenks.

On a different day, my answer would be totally different, but I think I would like to befriend Anda. She seems like she would be a lot of fun.

Having talked herbs with Maeb, & Boinked Jenks, next I would love to have Tea with Sedra and talk about books & literature.

sami-the-ghost's picture

I'm a noob, and this caught my eyes the most.

But, i would probably choose Teacher. He'd probably not answer half my questions but atleast he could read me the stories. If i begged and pleaded... although that probably wouldn't work either.

And if teacher turned me away, i would probably have a chat with Temmin. I'd probably ask him to take me horse back riding. I grew up in a city, but i've always wanted to ride a horse. Then, maybe afterwards i could go find Sedra and have a chat with her about Tremont sexism over a cup of tea.

Hmm, i just sound indecisive at this point. But, there are so many characters i would love to talk with. But, those would be my top three. lol

You all had to make me look like the perverted one for being the first and still one of the only ones to go straight for sex.

Most people get the impression that I'm a prude. I kind of prefer it that way, because I get to shock the hell out of them later when they think they know me. Of course, this community doesn't really facilitate that kind of behavior. You people are shocked by nothing, so there wouldn't really be a point.

I can see how you'd look like a prude if you weren't in an environment like this, but you're entirely too competent in your teasing to be *pure*, too Blum 3

It also comes in handy in a sibling rivalry way with my best friend (who will be driving us to the ren fest, since I still don't have a license). No one believes her when she says that I'm the one who corrupted her after she makes a perverted comment. "But she's so sweet and quiet." On the other hand, when we're picking at each other and it escalates to name calling, I was always the one who got in trouble because my mother would walk in (known this friend since we were 4 years old) just as I called her a bitch or something similar.

...Harsin, and ask him to teach me about politics and leadership. I'd like to try to see things from his perspective. What's it like being a ruler? What's it like to have that kind of power, but also that much responsibility? How does he REALLY feel about Ansella? and Brinnid? and Temmin? Who is he considering for Ellika? I pick him for all those reasons, but also because I don't really understand Harsin. I don't understand his personality or motivations, but I am definitely drawn to him as a character, in spite or more likely because of that. He doesn't do things by halves, but he's not some impetuous or mischevious youth. Harsin is so...fascinating: sometimes intensely attractive, sometimes downright repugnant.

It kind of sounds like I have a fangirl crush. But I'm not attracted to him that way, I just want to UNDERSTAND him. To me he's this giant enigma.

anda, and not for sexy reasons.well, kinda i guess, as someone who has heard their entire life that they could be 'so pretty if you just lost some weight' i think a day with anda would be um...illuminating? maybe i could learn to be more assertive.

MeiLin's picture

Seriously? Have you lost weight since then and now? Judging by your picture, you look fine to me! Go for the girly, girl! At least if that's what you like--I've allasudden got hellishly girly. Makeup, hair, nails, new jewelry, my beloved perfoom--no idea what's up, but I got all that "you could be so pretty if" crap as a young woman, too, and I wasted my youth because of it. Don't you do the same.

nope, i've stayed pretty constantly in the 'heavy set' category my whole life. i wear a size 22 bottom, i'm beyond being embarrassed by it, obviously since i'm willing to commit that fact to public forum, but i have a tendency towards trying to hide myself all the same. lately i've been a bit more willing to take more care about how i'm dressed and all, i credit that to my boyfriend and his constant reassurance that i'm not some hideous cow-beast, but i'd kill to have some of anda's self confidence.

This thread has been quiet for some time, but it's a cold saturday after noon, and with my cup of cider, I will attempt to answer.

Warrin the Wise, I think, is my first choice. He's patient, calm- I would love to live in the woods, sustaining myself with only a few other people.

Of the main characters... I'm not sure. Issak is interesting, but kind of a dick- maybe it's just to Temmin, but still. Alis isn't my type of girl, but that could be because we don't know her well enough. Sedra's stubbornness would drive me crazy, and she's too like me to every become close friends with...

Is it odd that enjoy reading about their lives, but probably wouldn't be friends with them if I knew them?

The Teacher might be fun to talk to, but he might be too... teacher-y.

I think I'll stick with Warrin Smile

This may seem a bit left feild, even for this type of thread, but it is what it is.
Choise, Teacher. Fairly orthodox, so far.
Activity, freindly banter over a game of chess. Yes, I'm very likely to lose the game, and there would be no real exchange of anything by the standards that most seem to view this fun from. Be that as it may, I think the guy could use a short time that would be truly relaxing given everything he normaly shoulders. Plus I like his wit, which provides the dry humor perfect for the comments and retorts that would make the match truly entertaining, win or lose.
That's right, people. I'd use the oportunity to fracture reality and warp worlds just to give the guy a break.
