Yeah, I'm still interested in doing something like that. Besides Wallace Fordham and Joe Lawton on this wiki, I'm willing to use a few others in an RP. I also have a few ideas now that you mention it but is there any idea you have in mind specifically when bringing this up?
The last time we talked about this, I have to admit, I was a bit to forward about the entire thing. I mean, I understand they are regarded as taking place in the same universe but that wasn't the place to be conjuring up a more GTA-esque plot.
The only reason I dismissed it before, was because I wasn't interested in doing something GTA like in the whole Bully universe. At the time, I didn't want to explore other fandoms for OCs and stuff. Now something in the actual GTA universe, that would be interesting.
Only character I've redeveloped is Toni Elliot, she is now older and named Toni Stokes. I wouldn't mind exploring this new version of her. I haven't put the info for her up yet. She is kinda like her Bully self, but she is actually worse. Having ties and connections to various criminal organisations. For a plot, I'm not sure. I kinda have an idea of maybe a heist? Nothing big like in the game. Maybe a small job, but they still have to do some planning and getting all the vehicles and weapons they need.
Where would we post the RP? Does this wiki have a RP board or something?
I totally respect that. I'm glad you kept it in mind though and reached out to me when you decided to expand into GTA.
Now on the topic of an RP, I think Toni doing some criminal work is a decent start. I personally would like to have her work with Michael Albright on a job if we do this because he's kind of a more reserved type of person and I would like to see how them working together would play out. But with that in mind, what age do you want her to be and year would this take place. I only ask that because Michael Albright disappears from the crime life in 2009 and resurfaces in 2014.
Unfortunately, we do not currently have an RP board since this wiki was mostly made on fanfictional videogame expansions and not so much on user interactions. An RP board will have to be made but I think we could consult someone on that. Unless you already know how to make one similar to Bully Fanon's board.
As for age, she will be in her late twenties at this point, since she is eighteen as of her Bully incarnation. She had to repeat school from her sophomore year, but I've decided she didn't finish it, and left Bullworth at twenty. But I'm also considering removing her from Bully universe entirely, and giving Toni Stokes a whole new back story, very similar to her original one, just not including Bullworth at all. I never actually gave her a birth year, because during those fan fics, I never really chose a setting year, because I didn't think it mattered. Any time after 2014 is okay with me. I'll be flexible there with time.
I have no idea how to make forum boards. I made the suggestion of RPs, and one of the members of staff on there set it all up. I'll ask a member of staff here if that could be possible.
I support the idea of making Toni Stokes her own character, if you feel comfortable with it. If you think it would be better for this character to have their story not necessarily tie in with Bully, that wouldn't be a bad thing because you might see them as too different to have to be the same. On the other hand, keeping them the same character could be beneficial such as having a kind of evolution to the character's life. Like, to show what they end up becoming in the furture. That's just my opinion though.
Having Albright work with Toni could be pretty interesting figuring Toni worse than her Bully counterpart. I'm thinking of a plot that might span through multiple RPs in the sense that they will cross paths a couple times. A heist or theft could see how both handle themselves in a tense situation.
Lastly, thank you for initiating the whole idea for having RPs on this wiki. I like the progress you've made with it so far and hope it catches on with other users.
I would see them as the same character, just change her history. Like for example, instead of being born in Blue Skies Industrial Park and raised in a trailer, she would instead be from the trailer park in Sandy Shores. Everything would be changed to tie in with GTA universe, but her life would progress more or less exactly the same.
Yeah, that would be great. And that way, we would see over time how they develop either something like a work based friendship, or if it goes the other way and they are competeing rivals who are always pushed together for jobs. If it is the second one, it could be they dislike each other, but respect the other is good at what they do. I don't think we'll plan which one happens, just see how they are in the first.
So far, no comments from anyone. Could you post in the thread to show your interest too? Maybe that will get the ball rolling if it's not just me.
I think first we should decide how they would meet. I don't think them crossing paths would be like two kids that happen to bump into each other while they're hanging out. Since they are both career criminals, it wouldn't be random.
How about Albright could be arranging a job, and someone he knows could mention someone that has loads of contacts. The pal of his doesn't know her name. Just tells him to go to Procopio Truck Stop, and wait for a woman to pull up in a Banshee. They don't trust each other at first. Toni takes him to Yellow Jack Inn for a drink. Then that's as far as it goes with the planned side. From then on wards, we just let it play out as it happens.
If you have any other ideas, I'd like to hear it. Toni is a bit mysterious and avoids Los Santos unless she has a job to do. All her first meetings are usually in Blaine County.
If you don't want it to be in Los Santos, and in Liberty City instead, I'm totally open to that. No limits on where she meets anyone. She'll still have her Banshee. She does have connections with The Lost. Eventually I'll put a page up for her.
I was figuring the same thing, Albright is contracted to recruit a known criminal who can cooperate with him. I agree with the setting being Los Santos because Liberty City has become a place he can no longer show his face after 2009.
If anything, he wouldn't trust her either as he could be under the impression that he was going to be working with people he already canvassed. I could see a job being in the planning stage at the time the RP begins but they might run into some trouble collecting the equipment needed.
I like that idea! Yeah, that would work nicely. How about this heist is just a small time one in Blaine County first? Then after they know they can work together, they go for a more Los Santos based job after that?
I got a busy week coming up next week, and probably won't be able to reply much. How about we start it not this weekend, but the weekend after? That will give us time to talk out some of the stuff we will need to plan out, like where they would plan the jobs, or possibly meet up, etc.
That could work. She also has connections with pretty much any criminal organisation in Blaine County. Some connections in Los Santos, not so much the gangs. She isn't a member of The Lost, she just keeps them sweet so she can live in Stab City, and of course the financial gain from getting a cut of jobs she plays a part in.
Totally off topic and not to get on you or anything but is there a chance you could post on the "Going for the Hattrick" RP? I now it's been awhile since we've posted on that one but I was enjoying it and we left off on your turn I believe. Plus, I think it would be a nice thing for when Michael gets back.
No problem, I didn't know. I just assumed you were taking your time because you were working on something else and wanted to put more attention on that, as I've done that sometimes. Also, for what it's worth, I'm sorry for not putting that into account before posting at you. I totally see how that can come off as rude.
I thought I would check this place out, and was so surprised to see you here too. I can't believe I didn't notice you were a member of this wiki. Shows how unobservant I am to other user's profile boxes, lol.
I'm trying to branch out a bit in writing other fandoms. Hopefully I might stick around here.
Cool, I honestly didn't think you'd be the first one to come here. Well, as you can see, I have much more detailed detailed version of Joe Lawton's page here for extended purposes. I've been working on a story project surrounding him and other characters that I hope to explain more of how I believe "Washington" or Livingston works in the GTA timeline. Otherwise, If you ever need anything around this wiki, don't be afraid to contact me.
To be honest, I didn't think I would either. I was playing GTA earlier, and thought Toni would thrive in the GTA universe, so I might do her adult years GTA-verse.
I am looking around and saw that about Joe. I had to read it all. I was so surprised how much was left out to adapt to the Bully world.
I've never created a GTA OC before, which is weird because I've been playing the games four a long time. I honestly don't know where to begin adapting her. Right now, I decided the age gap, and sort of her appearance. That is about it.
