I fight for silliness, and the ability to perpetuate it. I fight to bring smiles to the faces of small children and their parents and their friends and that guy I met on the side of the road and the cashier behind the counter.

I fight for the freedom to enjoy yourself in ways that do not denigrate, defile, or destroy the happiness of others. I fight to keep laughter alive.

...that's an odd choice of character to post with that motivation.

Justice has never been central to Guy's motivation.

Guy is motivated by, in order of descending importance.

1.The desire to prove that he's worth something.

2.The urge to beat a motherfucker down.

3. His own sense of right and wrong, which to his credit he does not, and never has, confused with actual justice.

I'm not saying that justice is of no concern or importance to Gardner, just that it's not usually what's on his mind when he slaps the shit out of the bad guy with a glowing green fist.

What's on his mind is "I'm really gonna enjoy slapping the shit out of this guy with a giant green fist", and he then proceeds to do so.

Which incidentally is why Guy Gardner is the best green Lantern.

>> No.16139631

Pff. That the world wishes to extinguish it is a reason enough for me. I demand the last spot on the waiting list!

I live for anguish! For violence! For the knowledge that all of this is how it was meant to be!

I live because the universe wants to kill me, and I need to be alive to see it try with an undivided attention. I live because Rovagug, our sacred master, built this universe of torments as a favor to us, and to die this soon into it-well, that'd be a disgrace, a failure so long as we go down before every other scream is sounded, and every other flame burns out.

I'm the best motherfucking human who has ever lived, and that's sayin' something, because the Rough Beast built us custom to stomp the shit out of everything else.

So when you hear those faggots whispering about the end of the world? Here's something to remember: They ain't talking about the Terrasque or the Gugs, they're talking about ME. They're talking about YOU.

Get an ink maw and a few scars, sign away your house and say g'bye to your pets, 'cause you and me baby? We're going to pull some faces off and shit down some serious necks, and there ain't nobody who can stop us!

D&D 4th Edition- Knowledge- I'm a (secretly) evil warlock. I've assasinated the BBEG and assumed control in his stead under the guise of getting revenge for the fallen leader and eventually rezzing him. I pinned the murder on the Lich advisor to the BBEG so that I could murder him and take all of his arcane knowledge for myself. I'm currently thinking about knocking off the Wizard in the party to steal his shit. The party doesn't know that I've got an invisible imp familiar to commit all sorts of dickery.
D&D 3.5- Cleric of Heironeous- Out to smite bitches and undead in the name of my god and his smiling ally. Converted the whole rest of the party to Pelor worship so that we can take the Shadow Guard prestige class out of Complete Champion. Shit will be cash.
Dark Heresy- Techpriest- Try to find a way to reverse the mutation he suffered at the hands of heretics. Doing one of the demo adventures, my techpriest failed a toughness check and is now pink. I've managed to conceal the mutation from the rest of the party and the inquisitor, and I'm not trying to reverse it or minimize it via the replacement of my flesh with blessed technology.

>> No.16139767

You want to hear a goddamn story?

The man who wrote Don Quixote intended it to be a mockery and a deconstruction of the heroic ideal and the romanticism that he felt was a plague to literature at the time.
See, Cervantes didn't believe in heroes and good and the inevitable triumph of righteousness over evil. Yeah.

And you might be disappointed by this. But I'm going to clue you in on something. I'm going to tell you a bit about our dear curmudgeon, Miguel de Cervantes.

Ok first off, he was a badass swordsman who fucked up some punk kids when he was young and had to run out of the country to Italy.
Then he joined the Spanish navy, and fought the Turks at this little battle called Lepanto. It was pretty underground, you might not've heard about it, it was only THE BATTLE THAT ENDED OTTOMAN SUPREMACY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN.

And this guy, who had a massive fever? Yeah, he went on ahead and fought anyway and got shot three fucking times. Walked away from it. He then went and fought fucking pirates, rocked their shit, but got captured when outnumbered by three ships, all larger than his. He did this without the use of one arm.
He then spent five years in slavery in fucking ALGERIA, nearly escaped four times, and was eventually ransomed by his folks back home.

...And this is the guy who felt like poking fun at heroic romanticism in his literature. Yeah, sure buddy. When a guy who gets out of bed seasick and burning with fever, gets shot eight times, survives, fight pirates for a decade and survives in a hard labor camp with only one functional arm, tells me that there's no such thing as big damn heroes?

Well I don't know what I'm supposed to say to that, except that a man living the impossible dream while standing on the unreachable star probably isn't going to believe either of them are a big deal.

I fight because I need to live for as long as I can and I need to preserve as much life as I can with me.

Two years ago, I lost a friend. I shouldn't call her my friend because she was more than that, and I can't call her my lover because I did not let that happen. At the time, my feelings were in a flux. And if I were a shred more sensible, we would have been together.

I do not practice any kind of theism, and I won't guarantee life after death. But I have a theory of what happens, and I like my theory. Right now, she is in a place that is similar to a living imagination, what she thinks is, what laws of reality she desires will be. And every sentient organism experiences this same dream land. And whats more, they can be shared between whom they would like to share themselves with.

Right now, she's in this place. Doing whatever she desires. But, limited by her imagination, and the imaginations of anything she invites in. I owe her my full and natural life experience. That is what I would have shared with her. I need to experience every majesty mortal life has, natural beauty, social wonders, knowledge and fantasy, I owe it to her and everything in the next life to accumulate as much prosperity as I can so that I may share it with everyone.

I fight to stay alive for myself, to stay alive for her, and to protect and preserve everyone. so that every living creature can live its fullest, so every living thing may share the grandest rewards in each life.

Ok, with my current array of characters I have:

Teresa Roselle-de'Hourai: She was a spoilt, impatient, illegitimate princess (Her uncle pulled a coup d'├ętat but kept her family on as Aristocracy just to avoid potential rebellion) with a thirst for adventure. What drove her forward was the never ending change n the world.

She as of late has settled down somewhat and now aids in the reconstruction of another kingdom.

Samantha de'Hourai: was a guard-dog and concubine of the previous BBEG, she was a political prisoner turned slave for most her childhood.
Since her rescue by Teresa she fell under her sway and took an oath to her name. She now travels in lieu of Teresa.
She has spoken to the Goddess of Mercy and Love, who helped her reclaim much of who she once was, and now she serves to further the teachings of the Goddess.

>> No.16140132

Sister Hospitaller Emanda: As a member of the Adepta Sororitas, she serves the Emperor in all things. Recently she had the mispleasure of watching a fellow Sister, one she was good friends with, die from Nurgle's Rot whilst all her training, skill and equipment could do nothing to halt it's progression or even offer the dignity of a peaceful end.
Since then she has, under watch of the Ordo Malleus, been heavily researching the Plagues of Nurgle and has even made limited progress in slowing and even stopping it's spread within the infected.
This may result in having to give her up as a character short of 'in the field' research.

Skara Brae: Thought to be an Einherjar (One of Odin's army of heros), she in fighting her way across the world for revenge after an army attacked her village, raped and killed the only one she loved and left her for dead among the ashes of her life.

Hrafn: Homeless and destitute she was going to sell her body but after an attempted rape her combat skills became apparent to a White Knighting Travelling Salesman who was about to step in and she was hired as a body-guard.
She's since become close to the misfit caravan she protects and that's pretty much become her sole motivation in a group who are all out to debate the gods.
