Tuesday, September 18, 2012, 06:45 AMIt's amazing how much one can become attached to a game character. One of the most interesting things is how much that can affect the way you see others. I think one of my favorite 'Mia's' is Mia Cummings. Currently AMO on USS Stennis. She ws my first 'Mia'. Created for Outpost 221 specifically as the proverbial ditzy blonde as a second character to fill in the medical ranks. She's matured over the years to be sure, but occasionally she still seemed to have those wonder 'blonde' moments where her heart leads her to go astray. Right now her heart is totally given to the current ASEC, Lt Merlin. While neither of them have really said anything (Other than her whispered declaration while he had been in a state of alcohol induced sleep) there is definitely more and more signs that someday soon, one of them will finally let their heart speak.
My other Favorite Mia is Amelia 'Mia' Moore from the Star Trek:Eternity sim. She was a shy Science officer.. thrown into a world of deceipt and darkness. False accusations against the XO made her show her strength and convictions of faith in his innocence. This has eventually become a tumultuous relationship. Having been forced into a secret facility and fed lies about Commander Colin Byrne, she had come to hate him as much as she loved him. The Ceberus Project was kept quiet. Her only friend being her former crewmate, Rick 'Red' Barlow. Her 'forced labor' insured by threats from her former CSCI, Lt Sorveck(who turned out to be a Section 31 operative), for two long years. On the completion of the new vessel she was given the choice to join the crew, or Kill Sorveck and start running for her life. She chose to join the crew, although many times she has regretted that choice. With the launching of the "new" Eternity, she was once again in Commander Byrne's command. And seeing him again made her face her feelings about him head on.
And the current story.. is very dark and I'll suggest you go read the Eternity logs for the details.

Monday, March 12, 2012, 01:27 PMI've joined the weight loss Challenge in the Healthy Living area.
Who know what will happen but you'll be able to keep an eye on several FSFers who are also working towards getting healthier.
While I am not really expecting to get down to my Ultimate end goal weight of 125 I am shooting to get down to at least 150.
I think having a group of us working together to lose weight and get healthy is a great idea. Kudo's go to FSF Who for getting this thing going!

Sunday, November 23, 2008, 09:00 AMHaving fun with names for Mia. She has joined Epsilon Station as an AMO by the name Mia Gonner. So far she's met the CMO and helped to load the Ship assigned to the Station for a medical mission.
Talk about trial by fire
I am looking forward to really getting into the story and developing this character.

Wednesday, July 23, 2008, 06:25 AMWell, I can see Mia is going to give the Base XO a very hard time. Considering the name of the game id STAR BASE 35.. I had envisioned it to be life on a remote station, sort of DS9-ish.
But Alas, we've spent more time away from the base and on the Jefferson. I think when they started this game it would have been nice to warn us it was rally a SHIP based game if that's what they were gonna do.
We return to the SB and the XO sys we are having SL???
Wait.. aren't we STATIONED THERE..
OK so I'm being picky.. but I know from some of the comments made before the game from several others that they feel the same way. How do you expect us to create a realistic atmosphere of life on a deep space station if they never give us a chance to get settled into the roles.
Well enough griping.
Mia Dunne is the Chief of Base INTEL. That means she has the job of investigating everyone who seeks access, checking backgrounds, running investigations with SECURITY as needed, not on a constant basis. It isn't a constantly exciting job.. but it can be very interesting once we get settled.
Since this is a new game, and perhaps a new style for the hosts (station as opposed to ship) It may take us a little longer to get settled into our respective roles and find our place in the scheme of things. But I think once we do.. this will turn out to be a great game.

Sunday, June 22, 2008, 03:02 PMI must say that playing the Character Mia Cummings on Stennis is fun. Even IF Lowell repeatedly douses her with spiders ::shudders:: Right now she is crawling around in little used access tubes on the Stennis after being used to break open a force field in the brig.. (I am sure that would Hurt a lot) And Her co-conspirator is none other the the former CSEC now Night Shift Duty Officer Merlin.
Even though Merlin can't quitr make it to the sims do to a new work schedule.. through the MB and some JPs we are keeping his character involved.. hopefully Capt Black will not Demote Mia again.. any lower and she has to give up officers quarters LOL
It's fun waiting to see just what will happen to our hapless heroine....

Wednesday, February 13, 2008, 05:33 AMJust when I thought it was safe to go outside without a dozen layers of clothing.. the cold weather hit again. the Snow I don't mind.. it's the freezing rain and Ice on everything that gets me. Now instead of the normal 5 to 10 minutes to get my car ready to go.. it takes 20.. to chop off the ice layer before I can even open the door.
So much for a quick ride anywhere... now I'll only go if it's absolutely necessary.
Almost makes me want to head for warmer climates....
ALMOST, but not quite

Thursday, December 6, 2007, 12:21 PMI was just sitting back wondering what life would have been like had I not found FSF. It's funny to thing that this could be a life changing event, but it is. I no longer sit and wonder "what will I do" every night. I get to try my hand at being different things, without having to worry about dire real world consequences. Where else can I be as evil as possible and still get a *hug* from my "victims" or practice medicine with out malpractice being a constant worry.
And I am certain that my writing, while not extraordinary, does convey the thoughts in my head. I know that I have been a happier person in general. the ability to converse with so many others, well to put it bluntly, it keeps me from sliding into those depressed moods of loneliness during the cold winter months.
And to top it all off, I am having a great time!! And meeting Wonderful People!

Monday, November 5, 2007, 08:05 AMMia Cummings, the AMO on Stennis, is in for a rough time. She's quite arachnaphobic. And even more so now while she was doing an Inventory in sick bay, she opened a cabinet only to have hundreds of spiders crawl out and all over her. And with FSF Lowell in charge, soon they were in her uni.. And after she stripped out of that.. still the spiders managed to get under her only articles of clothing... thus allowing for several of the male crew members, who came in to check on the new dr to find her in a state of total undress, hopping about and slapping spiders off her body. All I have to say is ...Lowell is EVIL. Even when Merlin found a blanket for her, Lowell had a lab technichian pull it away to be cleaned, and then stareing at her till Gillian came in and rescued her, finding a lab coat.. which is what she ended up wearing as they transported over to the Romulan vessel they were borrowing to rescue Commander Worth.
I think FSF Lowell enjoys seeing poor Mia suffer.

Tuesday, August 14, 2007, 08:13 AMMia Cummings is the AMO on the USS John C.Stennis. Already she has had quite an interesting time on board. She was sent on an away team where she had to keep two men alive while thing were happening on the ship that were far from the Norm. Her place on the ship seems to be secure and there's alway plenty of things for her to do. Her Departmental Commander, Dr Gillian Lerner, will often be called away at the most inopportune moments.
In a recent adventure, she went to the brig to interrogate a prisoner who was the Carrier of a deadly Virus. During her attempt to get information and a biosample, the prisoner tore her Envirosuit and she was exposed. But all is well once again. Dr Learner found the cure in time. Now on to the next adventure... who knows what Captain Black will lead them into next...
