ooc meme stolen from campjesus  
This is the "how's my driving?" meme.

So, I don't know anyone who doesn't feel like they aren't getting enough feedback. So... let's give some. What do you like about my pup? What do you think could be improved? What things about them do you not understand that you'd like elaborated on?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love how real Abby always comes across.

One example I can think of right now is the Ick!mess and her reaction. That's a genuine human response that is of course 100% in character for Abby. She's a doctor, this is what she does, and damned if someone's gonna tell her they know better than she does about how to handle a patient. Even if intellectually she may be aware that they may have methods she doesn't, that all goes out the window because this is the way Abby Lockhart, MD, handles a patient.

It's just so human and realistic and authentic. Not that I ever fear you're in danger of going there, but I'm always glad that Abby doesn't go the route I've seen worse RPers do: they meet character x from some supernatural or superpowered setting, and after a few token posts of disbelief they're right there with a suddenly whacky world and will defer to the supernatural/superpowered method of doing stuff, blah blah blah.

It's not human and it's certainly not Abby and I adore you for writing her as a stubborn, intelligent, three-dimensional human being.

Thank you.

This is where I have to say "characterization over canon sources" comes into play. This is the hard part about writing a muse that isn't original: throwing them into wacky situations and keeping them true to who/what they are.

Kinda going along with what Zippy said... I know we don't interact much, but it's cool that Abby thinks Anakin is a nutjob :)

But a very nice nutjob ;)

It should be pretty well obvious by now that I adore Abby. I love her sass, brass and wiseassery, and I love how she interacts with my clan (yes, even with poor Tadhg currently checking to make sure his arse is still intact ;). As for what could be improved, Ruairi doesn't want her changed, so that's all about that.

Ruairi would love her even if she ate a bowl of kittens.

Love her, yes. Wonder quite strongly if she might need some psychological help ... also yes.

Epi pen for sure, with her cat allergies...
