Hi there! I'm Ali, and I'm the mod for this game. I have the same horrible habit of not getting on AIM that I'm trying to break, but it's not going very well. It's onethousandnames when I'm on, and I'm on e-mail quite a lot at onethousandnamesATgmail. (I have a theme!) Feel free to bug me at any time.
I've got two kids here: Samuel Vimes and John Watson. If you haven't read the Discworld books, Sam is your quintessential man on the streets who's been moved up into command and still feels like the man on the street. He's technically a member of nobility but he mostly hates it; he will occasionally admit that his rank's useful, but he's never going to feel like one of them. Which means that he and Mercutio are automatically on Bad Terms; he hates the rich and pampered pretty much on instinct by this point since he's rarely met with examples that prove his prejudice wrong. Also, Mercutio seems like Trouble and Vimes is dead-set against that.
John's from BBC's Sherlock, which is an update of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. John's an army veteran and surgeon who's returned from Afghanistan; he comes from the beginning of the series, so he's literally just met Sherlock and therefore there's not a lot of history you need to know. He's starting up a clinic in town, so he'll be your doctor, should you need one. John's fairly easygoing and friendly in a polite sort of way; he'll probably get along just fine with Mercutio, though he would be pretty bemused by his mood swings.
(Sorry, I find it's easier if I assume people know nothing of my fandoms when I introduce them. ^^ So ignore my spelling stuff out if you do know them.)
