Karen "Frito" Lawrence is currently an active player of X-Project. She began playing Marie-Ange Colbert in May of 2003, and Kyle Gibney in October of 2004. She currently acts as one of the admins for the Xproject wiki, and has been a mod of the game twice previously, retiring from her most recent tenure as a mod in April 2017. She also hosts and maintains the webpage and is generally responsible for dealing with the technical end of any of the webpage-y things for the game.

She can be reached on gchat via the email address, or email at FritoEmail.jpg Her preferred means of contact is email, and her personal journal, full of memes, posts about cupcakes, assorted miscellany, and infrequent actual content can be found at Frito. The picture shown here is not actually representative of Frito. Mostly. She has a twitter. You can probably guess that it's also Frito_Kal

A former resident of Baltimore and the Washington DC Area, she now lives in Escondido, CA (a bit north of San Diego) - she hates snow and shoes, and loves seafood, tea and math. She lives with Twiller and their son "Typechip", born in February 2014, and has a truly astounding number of stuffed animals for someone who is in her forties.

She also claims to be 1/4 allosaurus.

Testing Area

This is where I test random code blocks to show off what nifty stuff I can make this wiki do because I have some random objection to using the Sandbox and I like having it here and handy on my user page.

We have 1,786 articles with actual content.

Today is Tuesday, March 13, 2018.

Moment of Awesome: Tandy Bowen/Dagger: After Adrienne's powers accident, Tandy has a moment to say goodbye.

Could astral avatars cry? Tandy wasn't sure but she felt like she was. ~Yes. A bit. Emma mentioned that she had to shut you down. Power overload of some kind.~

~Basically,~ Adrienne confirmed, sitting down at the head of the conference table and gesturing for Tandy to take her usual seat at her right hand. ~I think it's something like, that kid's power is to amplify other peoples' powers? So for me that means Reading everything, even dust. And not just with my fingertips. Any particle that touches my skin. That in itself might be manageable with a special suit like Rogue's, to make it so nothing else touches me, but because I also get the history of whatever touches me, the images aren't stopping. I can't function this way.~ It was hard to admit that she couldn't carry on, couldn't fight through it, but she wasn't going to hide the truth from Tandy. ~It's going to be... like a coma, I guess.~

Tandy drifted over and took a seat next to Adrienne. She listened and hesitated with her next question, fearing the answer. ~How long?~

Taking a deep breath and blowing it out again, Adrienne shrugged. ~Until the smarty-pantses here at Muir figure out how to stop it,~ she responded wanly.

Her lip began to tremble, ~But, you are my favorite adult. What is going to happen to your company? To the XFI?~

Adrienne stared intently at the desk. She couldn't look at Tandy. If Tandy started crying, Adrienne would start to cry. And no one wanted that. She didn't want to talk about Meridian, either. Not right now. ~XFI will be fine. Warren'll be fine. Don't tell him I said that.~ Except... ~Okay, fine. Do tell him I said that. Tell him I said that I know the cool boss will do a... good job, and that if the business tanks I'm holding him entirely responsible. Fuck.~ She huffed out an exasperated breath. ~I said I wasn't gonna do this. This 'tell so-and-so this from me' crap. That's not me. I don't do goodbyes.~

~Everyone needs a little closer before they go away for a little bit. And it isn't forever. Amanda will think of something. Professor X will think of something. And then you will be back and we can go for sushi again. I'll even buy you tickets to Taylor Swift.~ Tandy said, wiping at her eyes.

~I think you mean closure,~ Adrienne smirked, glancing over at Tandy. ~And I'm gonna hold you to that. I don't know what's up with her shenanigans on twitter, but you know it's gonna be something good.~

~Yeah, that.~ Her brain and mouth were no longer syncing up. ~I'll send you all her new songs~ And then Tandy couldn't help it as she started to cry ~I am sorry, I told myself i wouldn't~

~Don't don't don't don't aw fuck.~ Adrienne wiped at her own eyes and pulled Tandy in for a hug. ~You're the worst.~

~That is because I learned from the best.~ She gave Adrienne a tight hug. It was like losing another parent and Tandy knew about losing parents. ~Please come back okay.~
