This thread isn't just about my character, but I will discuss Sarissa a bit too. It's mostly for people to discuss what they might plan to do with their characters in Volume Five. Doesn't have to be too in-detail. It's more about brainstorming, and forming connections with other players/characters, and maybe asking for help if you can't think of anything. What do you see your character doing once the government backs off? Will you try to resume your normal life? Will you leave behind your past and look to the future? Will something good happen to your character? Something bad? I know that we don't have all the details about Volume Five and what it will contain, and some of those details are even now still being decided. But you can at least start generating some of the "personal plot" ideas mentioned in the thread below this one.
Now for the part about me!
Something is going to happen this week that will impact Sarissa rather greatly. The end of Volume Four will end a lot of other things too. I'm not sure what I want to do with Sarissa in Volume Five. Ever since Novak showed up to whisk Elisabetha away, however many IC years ago, things in Sarissa's life have been uncertain and chaotic. She doesn't know what to expect anymore, and she is generally someone who prefers to be in control. When the Grand Finale is over, and the dust has settled, Sarissa is not going to be in control of much at all. So I see her trying to regain some degree of mastery over her life. Whether that means returning to the "normalcy" of being a wife, mother, and manipulator of others, or if she is going to try to start over in a setting where she has control from the very beginning, or maybe reinvent herself and try something completely new — regardless of what winds up happening, I'd like to be involved with more people on the MUSH, rather than just a select few.
If anyone thinks they could establish a connection to a distraught but still rich and powerful woman who is looking for some meaning to her life… Let me know! Also post if you have ideas for your characters that need a position filled.
