Some folks have suggested it's easier to play males than females, which isn't really all that surprising. Besides, I like slash just as much as the next fangirl. And the possible challenge of playing a chick in a male/slash dominated game is certainly no turn off. I'm always up for a good challenge.
But here's what I'm thinking. I'm pretty sure I'm leaning more toward Melissa George or Dane Cook at this point. Sorry, dear Emilie. Maybe some other time. I just have a clearer vision and voice for the other two. But who to choose? Let me ask you all something. Does the pup actually being a member of the Establishment Club make a difference in any way? You've said it's easier to get a male pup off the ground, but what about a pup who's a non-member? Because if I pick Dane, then he'll more than likely start out not knowing about the Est quite yet, and I'd need some help in 'opening his eyes' if you will (anyone interested...?). But if I pick Mel, then I'm pretty sure I'd have her as a member already. GAH! I'm losing my mind. *sobs* This decision should not be this stressful, honestly. I'll probably just end up getting the other in... however many days anyway. Dammit. This is too hard.
Oh and hey, I almost forgot. If I choose Dane, then I'll have no problem with culture/hometown/slang/etc. My dad is from Boston (where Dane is from) and I spent a lot of time visiting family there. Melissa, on the other hand, is from Perth, Australia. And, yeah I know there's always Google and I always do my research, don't get me wrong. But I also think there's a lot more you can learn from talking to people who actually know the area that you'll never learn from some website on it. So any Aussies in game willing to help a poor American girl out? It would be much appreciated. ^_^
