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 1,801 articles with actual content.

Today is Monday, June 18, 2018.

MoA Topaz.png
Moment of Awesome: Topaz: Topaz issues one final threat to her father, in the failed aftermath of trying to bring her mother back to life.

Topaz wasn't paying attention to what anyone was saying. She still hadn't taken her eyes off the spot where she had watched the zombie - her mother - burn, not even after Wanda had covered it.

It was Taboo's sobbing which finally pulled her out of her reverie, and she turned her head almost mechanically, fixing her gaze on him. She had been prepared to let Amanda kill him - it had even been part of the plan, before that of course had gone straight to hell. And there was part of her that was still screaming to let Amanda do whatever she wanted. He didn't deserve to live. This was all his fault. But...

Topaz shrugged Amanda's hand off her shoulder, finally turning and walking slowly to the huddled form on the ground. Adam had done a number on him. It might have been kinder to put him out of his misery. She knelt down, one knee resting on the blood soaked ground, the other coming to her chest. "You know what," she said, locking eyes with him and speaking just loud enough for everyone to hear. "No one's going to kill you. Not today. Because that's what you want, isn't it?" She looked over her shoulder at Wanda's jacket, knowing what was under it, then back at Taboo. "You'd rather be dead than live without her. And why should you get what you want? Why should you be allowed to have peace when the rest of us have to live with the consequences of what you did? Why should you get away so easily? You don't deserve that. You can wake up every morning and remember the pain you put your wife through, just because you were too selfish to let her go. You can close your eyes every night and listen to her screaming echo in your head for the rest of your life, however long or short that may be. I'll tell you what, though."

She paused, reaching into Taboo's jacket pocket and extracting his cell phone. Somehow, it had survived. She pressed a button to bring the lock screen to life, holding it up so Taboo could see the picture of Clea and Stephen. "If you ever go near these two again, you won't have to worry about Amanda Sefton, and you won't have to worry about Adam Destine, because I will kill you." A spark of magic ran through the phone, frying the electronic pieces; there was noticeable pop as smoke started curling out of it. "No one threatens my kids.

"So here's the deal. Next time - if you're stupid enough to make there be a next time - this stays between you and me. No Winding Way, no Destines, no blackmailing me with people from the mansion. Just you and me, Dad. And then you can see what I've learned. Or, you can be smart, and never try to contact me again. Your choice. But I'm ready to end this whenever you are."

She stood, dropping the phone and crushing it under her foot for good measure. She held Taboo's gaze for a moment longer as she searched his eyes, trying to find some sign of the man she had once happily called her father. Had any of it been real, she wondered. Had he ever really loved her? Had Alice?

Had anyone?

The distant sound of police sirens broke the heavy silence, and Topaz turned away from Taboo at last, making her way back to Amanda, Wanda, and Billy.

Time to go home.
