Hey gang,

My writing mojo as regards Gabriel has been on the fritz for a while. I sometimes wonder if I haven't said all with him that wanted to be said when I first took on the character. So, I thought I'd ask his flist: what would you like to see Gabriel write about?

Obviously this would be easier for those of you familiar with the canon to answer, but it's open to anyone. What areas of Gabriel's past and existence (or present, or future) would you like to see explored? I'm utterly open to suggestions.

Awwww, I adore your writing, and Gabriel. I haven't really had my pups interact as I never really saw the opportunity (nor figured they were really ... well... worthy! LOL)

But hey, perhaps if he'd like someone to talk to we could figure something out?

Aw, thanks. :)

Eh, I'm not necessarily looking for RP for Gabe (though I'm not saying I wouldn't be happy to, either); I do have that (in fact, have many RP partners I've been sadly neglecting, heh heh oops. Just trying to sound out what prompts material I still haven't explored with the big silly angelhead.

Remind me what muses you've got? I know I asked you once, but my brain, it is a sieve!

None you've probably ever seen as they're not in prompt comms - I'm not regimented enough to maintain regular output of any particular one to qualify for most comms. I have too many of them, some go quiet for months, then become prolific for a while and others are forced into back seats, so makes it impossible to qualify for the 'you must post this in xx weeks' thang.

There's a few immortals (canon and OC) and an OC Watcher, an HP OC Auror, a couple of Men from LotR, an OC jazz singer/shaman, a few OC BSG characters, a Nikita from LFN...

Was thinking random thoughts and thought of Gabriel, and how he looks upon what he lived through when he was human.

Have you ever done a piece where he looks at his life before being human compared to being human, and how that time changed his outlook etc? Hope this isn't something you've already done! If it is, muchos apologies!

If so, then perhaps what he thinks when he looks at a human who is of the same arrogance and self-confidence, inflicting pain and injuries on those around them - and what he would do differently now, compared to before?

I honestly love anything that has Gabe just trying to interact with regular ol schmoes in the modern world. He amuses me.

Hmmm, what to suggest to writer as talented as you? Perhaps a bit more of the time of 'innocence' for the sons of fire, before the first war in heaven maybe with interactions with the Morningstar?

Stoned!Gabriel! Gabriel goes to the moon! The trials and tribulations of the tech support operative who has to field Gabriel's calls!

...yeah, I got nothing.

Stoned!Gabriel could bring pot to Alan so that he wouldn't have to go buy it himself and you could write Stoned!Alan.

....I might actually do the tech support thing.

Oh God. *laughs*

I was pondering Gabriel's interacting-with-the-DMV for that!

I love it to see the world through the old eyes of his new mortal (well temp mortal) man. So most explorations you could come up with would interest me.

Exploring his route through history would be interesting to me too, exploring his immortality that way. After all he existed in the times of Shakespeare, Shelley, Caesar, Lincoln. I can see him perched on their window sill, and talking to them during a candlelit dinner, or during their last night sitting near their deathbed.
But maybe I'm just a history nut to think that interesting.

Of course I would like you to explore his sex life. But Bill's muse has chastised me already about that type of wish, so I will not venture there here. And yes, I remember having read a wonderful sex prompt already.

I'll see what more I can do with that first one. :)

Ahaha, I am a history nut too, so it's not that I wouldn't find it interesting... Gabe just happens to be, well, evil for most of recorded human history. *shakes head at him*

Oh-ho-ho. Perv. (she said, fondly)

I think what I would like to see is Gabe interacting with his brothers, now after the movies. post-human Gabe. John thought that Gabe was a message himself, this time. I always love the earlier ones with his brothers too. more Simon. more Uziel. more interacting with various earth places in a symbolic way - the desert and so forth, antarctica. more Gabe in regular places - the supermarket. more animals?

Just ideas, maybe?
I miss Gabe. <3

too lazy to change journals... tch tch tch to me.
